21  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: Re-covered houndstooth shoes on: September 28, 2008 01:17:08 PM
I've been meaning to re-do some shoes of my own with the rubber tip. Can you explain your process, please?  Smiley

I love the skirt, but as soon as I saw that other shirt, I need to ask. Do you happen to know where this shirt was sold, where there might be exact replicas, or would you happen to have another one? I'd pay anything to get that shirt in it's original form. My grandfather had that same shirt but loved it too much throughout the years and I'm trying to repair the holes in it. However by doing that it won't look the same since I need to do complicated pathwork. Please please please tell me you might know howI can get my hands on another one. I'd love to see his face if I could find him a new shirt.

(EDIT) I found some old pictures of him wearing it with my twin brothers and I when we were young. Just to be sure it's the same shirt.

I have no clue where to get another shirt like this.  I found it at Goodwill.  I would just look around at thrift stores.  Sorry I'm not more help.

Alright, thank you though.

27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Art Gallery ideas needed. on: July 17, 2008 06:02:26 AM
Last year I was volunteered by a teacher of mine to work as a caricature artist in our last art gallery/jazz festival event at school. The problem was that only about 20 people showed up, 13 or which were staff. So needless to say I didn't quite ahve much work to do (i.e. none what-so-ever). So I spoke to my teacher and demanded that I be in charge of organizing next year's art gallery/jazz festival event. So I have been doodling some layout ideas and such and have hit a bit of a block. I wanted to make this event really spectacular, being that it is the only classy event we have in our school. I wanted to make it a real black tie and LBD event. So any ideas?

Here's what I was thinking of so far:
-creating large white walls for flat art dispaly purposes (no idea how to yet)
-draping black fabric to cover the cafeteria walls
-having an art auction right outside the event (along with an overhead projector for optimal viewing)
-creating a standing eating area with raised tables for drinks and treats.
-selling books with photographs of all of the art pieces along with artist's comments.

And that's really all I have so far. Help  Sad Please ♥
28  COOKING / Dessert / Sea salt ice cream KH2 on: May 17, 2008 05:16:42 PM
So I was tired of not being able to find a good recipe for sea salt ice cream that WASN'T extremely fattenting, so I made my own. Smiley

Fans of Kingdom Hearts and tasty sweets, this one's for you.
Now for this recipe you need:
~Two sandwhich bags.
~Some ice. (Best: a mixture of part cubed and part crushed)
~3 table spoons of table salt.
~A sea salt bottle and grinder duo. (This is a bottle with sea salt chunks inside and has a grinder tip. Cheapest way to go.~) (Note: if you need to know the brand name, I'll be more than happy to post it.)
~1/2 a tablespoon of sugar.
~1/8 a teaspoon of vanilla extract. (Found usually in baking or seasoning aisles)
~1/4 cup of milk.
~A bottle of blue food coloring.

Directions:
-Open the first bag and place in the milk, sugar, vanilla.
-Next add one drop of blue food coloring. If you feel it is too light add another drop. No more, or the color will be TOO dark, and untrue to it's model.
-Next you'll grind in about 2 to 4 full grinds of sea salt.
NOTE: 2 grinds will result in a reversed sea salt ice cream, where the taste is first sweet and then salty. (Better IMO~) 3-4 grinds will give you true sea salt ice cream where in the salty taste comes before the sweet one.
-Now you seal the bag and be sure to let out air as much as possible!
-Next you take your other baggy and fill it half with ice.
-Add the three tablespoons of table salt to the ice bag.
-Now place the bag with the ice cream mixture inside of your salt bag.
-Seal the ice bag allowing air inside.
-Shake the bag for 4-5 minutes, until you see the blue mixture begin to harden.
-Open the ice bag and remove your ice cream baggy.
-Open your ice cream baggy and enjoy! You have just made sea salt ice cream!

Yeilds: one serving. For two servings: Double all EXCEPT sea salt, and food coloring. Sea salt is always measured to taste, and food coloring should be done by eye.

Tips: By now you'll discover that shaking a freaking cold, FREEZING bag isn't fun XD So here are some things you can do!
* Wear an oven mitt when shaking the bag.
* Wrap a towel over the bag and then shake.
* Replace the second bag instead with a large coffe tin. Fill it half filled with ice, and depending on how large your tin is, alter the salt by a table spoon or two. Place the ice cream mixture bag inside and the close the tin with it's plastic cap. (Just to be sure, place some duct tape in an X shape over the cap, for a secure sealing.) Rather than just shaking, now you have the option of rolling the tin. So invite some friends, sit on the floor and roll the tin to each other. :3~

Voila.~

Thank you very much!  Smiley
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Black Vest from a hideous little girl dress. on: May 14, 2008 12:15:24 AM
Apparently I, in what I can only figure was a druken state, purchased two of these hideous little girl dresses. The inner shirt and skirt are fused to the hooded outerwear. Blech.
So last Sunday I took apart my black and red dress and salvaged the hooded torso piece and 2 inch waistband.
(No before shot for the black dress. Sorry!)


Here's the finished product:




Here's a close up of the button, which was an extra from a jacket I bought long ago.


And to meet with bandwagon demands, here is a myspace shot:  Smiley


And it's all hand-sewn!  Grin
