1  Boyfriend Shrine in Completed Projects by Staramber on: July 17, 2008 07:01:37 AM

I just moved in with my long distance boyfriend. This is what I used to use to remind myself what he looks like. All the elements in the shrine represent something from our first two weekends together. It’s all housed in a small jewellery box that ties shut with ribbon.

And no he doesn’t find it creepy.

Apply to my vanity and I will grant you anything.

Pictures with my new haircut (and a bit of a blush). Post-Yorkshire weather. 



And I made a new one:



These are my favoriteist quick craft in the world. I've been gushed over in Subway, had school kids marvel over them, made one for a friend in Southampton. I can't thank you enough.

3  Frog Shadowbox in Completed Projects by Staramber on: May 13, 2007 07:47:09 AM


I was inspired to make this shadow box after a trip to the amazing tropical house at Chester Zoo. It is my first shadow box and first project with my hot glue gun.

The frame is from a charity shop and I painted it black, the paper is from my stash and the frogs are from the zoo gift shop.

4  Headband with love hearts and flowers and cute in The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty, and Kitschy Crafts by Staramber on: April 17, 2007 07:36:04 AM

I impulse bought this ribbon on my way through the market and bought the flowers in pathetic attempt to goth it up. The flowers fall just in front of my ears. I love this project, it took all of ten minutes and looks lovely.

5  Yeah, I made skirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Staramber on: April 16, 2007 01:26:01 PM
Skirts made with the aid of Yeah, I Made It Myself.

The drawstring one is made from a sheer black fabric with sequined flowers and stripes of... well I don't know the technical term but it looks kind of like tinsel. A bit. Anyway. To avoid the 'I can see your knickers' effect I gave it a purple bottom layer. I wish I could get a good shot of it twinkeling.



The second is made out of The Eternally Creased Cotton that came from a factory sale and is also a bag and a pile of scraps now. And ironed it, several times!

6  Flowery Knitting Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Staramber on: April 16, 2007 03:08:28 AM
I made this knitting tote from a few leftovers. I didn't have any stuff for a lining and I put the front pocket on, including the channels for the knitting needles, in the last second. That was fun. It first my big project and it was fun. It doesn't stand up on it's own but it isn't floppy as it's made from some pretty strong upholstery wight cotton I bought from a factory shop.

I made an airy for a friend of my Mum's who is expecting. There will also be baby knits but I wanted to knit her something glam to make her feel special with all the baby focus going on.
