761  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pretty Little Boxes on: October 13, 2007 11:06:59 PM
Normally I am a digital graphics type person, but all my inspiration for that has dried up  Cry

But working at a craft store helps give me ideas for more hands on things. So today my hubby and I went up there (mainly so I can bug my coworkers haha) and I got some cardboard boxes shaped like hearts and stars; paint; ribbon; and little gems and decided I was going to decorate some boxes!

I live at my grandmothers house, so my hubby and I can't really decorate as we want... bummer.



The star was my first one... I was kind of just doing whatever came to my mind... the stripes on the top were so freehand and resemble more zebra than straightness. The heart I used painters tape and tried to get them on there straight. I could've used a t-square for this, but I didn't want to wait till tomorrow.

I hot glued ribbon around the body of the star and heart, then around the edge of the lid of the heart... *note: hot glue is hot... owie.*

Used folk art paint, I like it. If you want to know the colors, lemme know and I shall gladly tell you.

Wow, that is an awesome idea! I got to go on a tour of Gallaudet University with my senior class; it was amazing.

I must try bleaching a shirt now, that is such a cool effect <3

Looks awesome <3

So yeah, I try to be crafty, not much time since I have a job. Funny though, I work in a craft store! Ah, life is funny at times ain't it?

My mom bought me this cross stitching kit with some modern looking designs, and I was bored at work (working in the framing department is pretty boring sometimes.)at I did this. First kind of stitching thing ever, so it's kind of a mess, but I like it! I added 'True Love' myself, because it looked cute.

Here are some pictures, my crappy camera that only my husband can use for some reason! yayers.

X3 I'm no good with coming up with good names for things, I like Craft-o-rama  Grin

I think if we start getting more people involved we should open up our own forum, that once this goes down, it can turn into a Houston Crafting forum  Cheesy

I have to say, we should offer all ranges of crafting styles... I went to one out in Rosenburg and I was so bored. Offer things that generations of families can come and find something they like. From the elderly to the teen to the child. You know?

I'd LOVE to help, but I can't make any for sure promises yet. This summer we're moving to a rent house and I'm going to be appling at the local art college and searching for a job... but... o.x yeah... if details start coming underway I'll try to join up! Cheesy
