So my World of Warcraft account has been temporarily canceled(long story, money issues), so I've resorted to sitting in front of the tv going, 'what to do, what to do....'
Well I've always seen those nifty looking magazine bowls and I'm pretty sure I've seen the vases on here... >.>... could be wrong, but oh well! SO! Here's my attempt.
(Last two pictures are for fun.)
I was pretty surprised by how strong they felt and heavy they were!! I figured they would just be a decorative thing, but we can really use them to hold stuff, keys and such. Right now I'm working on a smaller set to use as tea light holders, so far so good! lol
Well, my partner from the Tim Burton swap received, so I can now post this!
I made her two patches, and I'm not the best at embroidery, and I'm sure I got most of the stitches wrong, but it's a fun thing to do, and it helps entertain me.
I drew these based off some pictures I downloaded, and the Jack one was way more planned out ;;;;
I only did their heads, because I figured it'd be easier... now that I think of it, I could've done their whole bodies! Also, if anyone is a fan or knows of DeathNote, Barrel looks like Ryuk, I don't know, just personal opinion I guess.
Jack! Isn't he cute looking? The first drawing he looks super old, but I tweaked the mouth a little.
Details shot of the writing... x.x; cursive is a pain! I added the pumpkin and crown last minute, thought it was cute lol
I attached a backing... don't know why... they arn't had to remove lol
So my mother in law and the women in her family do a Wild Women Weekend where they all get together for a whole week and do stuff just for them and craft stuff to have fun for a weekend. Well, they all promised me this year they'd make it amazingly fun since it would be my first time going.
Well, this morning we cleaning out the kitchen for her(which made her so happy because it was so cluttered and dirty) and we found these.
Her sister is a big crafter and she made these as a funny little gift.
Can you tell what they are? They are flipflops made of pads.
The label on the bag.
I think they are the FUNNIEST things ever, and I knew I had to share on here!
So after using two tv tray's for months (I would get pictures, but they were thrown out. They were covered in paint and all cut up.) I was at work and they brought in some tables for 149$, and I thought they were cool, but a bit too much. So one day, I was helping set up the ad's for that week and I saw it; the tables were on sale for 79$! I jumped on it lol.
Of course it was a pain in the ass to assemble, and Allen Wrenches are my enemy now, but it's together and works great! I can even put my sewing machine on it and still have loads of room to work on other things.
My cool lamp with my tall hat. Helps keep the light not so bright.
And it's all cluttered, but I was working some swap items, so yeah, excuse it.
It's pretty nice for now, but eventually I'll want something different... but I'll wait to ask for something different when we find our own place.
So I just ordered Craftster's favorite book(along with another one, good deal you see.) and I paid for two day shipping, forgetting I would be waiting all weekend for the next two business days(silly me!), so it was supposed to be here today! I got an email saying it wasn't going to get here till the 10th... I ordered it on the 30th of Nov.... yes... too long for a two day shipping charge!
So I called, and they refunded me my shipping and that was that.
Phone call consisted of me telling a man at least 5 times, 'I'm not receiving my books for another 5 days, so I would like my money back that I paid for it to be sent in two days.' and finally he did it.
... I just got an email saying 'You books have been shipped and will be arriving on the 5th-6th' and it's at my city's UPS terminal...
Maybe they felt bad... *shrug* Anyways I'M ALL EXCITED about getting this book people have been talking about!
Anyone else have a horror story with an online purchase? *mine wasn't so bad lol*
So I've been seeing a lot of it on here, and I was all kinds of curious! So I found it at work(funny thing, it was hidden under some stamp display!) and I've been playing with it today, and this is what I have made so far, trail and error I suppose lol
Sooo yeah... the first three are tiny as hell, lol, I forgot they got SUPER small, and the last one I messed it up by thinking my sharpie was new enough to not produce a fat ugly line yet, *wrong!* and I messed it up. I also don't have a hole punch(I forgot where I put it), and had to make ugly holes with my exacto knife.
Also, to those who know how to use this stuff, on the frosted sheets(I bought a mixed package), which side do you color? I colored on the frosted side, wrong or no?
I figured I couldn't put this in glass crafts... since it's not really glass works... or is it?
Here it is! My attempt at this kit I got from work (I can't find a picture of it on the michaels website; and I already lost the box lol.)
It was supposed to be in a swirl pattern, but I was feel rebellious... well more like I messed up right off the bat and just winged it. I think it came out pretty neat, eh?
I love looking at it through the bottom(thats supposed to have felt on it, but I like it without it.), reminds me of looking through a bottle.
is that close up enough for you lol.
I have a whole other one to do... and this kit's instructions was very... odd. I had a little 3/4's cup and a tablespoon, and it told me take 7 scoops of grout and 1 table spoon of water and mix it till it wasn't lumpy... I experimented after thinking, 'That wont work...' and I discovered 3 table spoons of water works just fine!
I use it all the time, even though my furniture isn't worth the trouble lol.
I plan on doing the other one, as soon as I get more gloves, the glue doesn't come off very well.
I've wanted a sewing machine for a while now, and my grandmother *refuses* to let me near hers because she is convinced I will break it (when I was a kid I broke many things... many many things.), so I decided I'd show her and I bought my own...
So I read the instructions; it came with a DVD but I didn't feel like going through the process of rewinding it when I didn't catch something. I thought I knew what they were explaining pretty well; but then it came to putting the bobbin in the shuttle.... yeah... it doesn't tell you there is a little hole under the tension spring(I don't think thats the right name for it, but thats what I called it and my father-in-law knew what i was saying(he sews for work)), and when I put it in before I did that this is what happened.
Oh the horror....!!!!
So after two days of swearing at it, crying because I felt like a failure, and even looking for the receipt to take it back, Hubby calls his dad and I talked to him and he told me to check the tension, after messed with it I discovered the hole and now it works fine!
First thing sewn (decently) on it, lol
I have plans to sew other things, but yeah... thought I'd share my random sewing machine journey with you.
Also, we got another purchase that day;
Yeah, I gave in and we got one... mainly because I saw the pink controller and had to have it, lol.
