11  Tacky gold + Antique lace= AMAZING brocade skater skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: June 06, 2014 02:55:58 PM
My MIL gave My some gold fabric that was a bit much on its own .. I  had  recently picked up a yellowish creamy lace antique curtain that was a bit plain  .. I combined the two and I LOVE the " Brocade" effect ! I made a simple high waist circle " skater " skirt and Im really proud of how it came out

The black velvet top with gold sequins was My cousins Grandmas ! and It goes perfect







Thanks for looking and have a great day

Hi everyone , I am so happy with My new circle " skater" dress made with red, yellow and blue striped vintage polyester knit fabric with coral colored vintage polyester  waist inserts






 This dress was so easy to make .. Had I not added the waist inserts I could have made this dress with only 3 seams ! Very easy to do even by hand ! I can make a tute if anyone wants

18  Micro aquarium sponge filter from Hotel Shampoo bottle ! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: March 18, 2014 12:29:28 AM
 Cheesy
 Iv got a few experimental tiny planted aquariums going I recently "reset" them both with full dirt substrate and tonight I added DIY micro filters. The 1.8 gal is a totally reconstructed tank . Its started as this poorly designed catastrophy http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/educational-toys/national-geographic-undersea-aquarium.asp

I removed the no longer functioning " periscope sub "  added a whisper HOB planted it riparium style and tonight the sponge filter ! only plant inhabitants " The bowl to the side has the same sponge filter and a few snails



 I added some carbon to the sponge



Hotel Shampoo , cut off bottom , poke several holes , insert air stone and sit inside sponge with a hole carved out but not thru . The air stone pushes air that creates a vacuum inside the bottle which pulls water and waste into the bottle and forces it thu the sponge where it is filtered thru the carbon tablets

covered in lava rocks




Thanks for looking and have a great day
 I hope this helps anyone out there with tiny aquariums or fish bowls . I previously thought fishbowls couldnt be filtered ( other than thru live plants ) a sponge filter gives an additional place for beneficial bacteria to grow and the more "bb" you have per water ratio the cleaner your water will stay and the healthier your fish will be .Especially in bowls where the gravel to water ratio is low it helps to have added surface area . ALONG with LIVE plants of course

Have a great day
Jayne

 this is also a great way to recycle hotel shampoo bottles or any small bottle for bigger aquariums try a 20 oz pop bottle

20  SHRIMP BREEDER a New take on the outdated " Betta vase " in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: February 20, 2014 10:22:46 AM
Hi everyone.

    Let start with a little history . I have a 30 gal planted tank with a huge ACF  a few tetras a few mystery snails a pleca and a colony of ghost shrimp . The Ghosties act as clean up crew and a live food source for Frank the African Clawed Frog . When the numbers get to low I buy some more but recently I decided why run to the pet store every month when I can breed these little ghosties myself !

steps and tools

1 gallon glass fish bowl , set up for 4 weeks to allow  nitrate cycle to form and micro life to establish ( copepods , worms , micro crustations etc ) join on thier own from seemingly no where .  Before you think of adding snails or shrimp

play sand and pea gravel for bottom

pants - Anacharis aquatic plant ( great for removing amonnia and adding oxygen )

air stone for water flow and more oxygen

plant liner tray ( for lid and upper plant support )

plant for top ( Im using anthurium )
 river rocks or marbles and moss - sphagnum or spanish

screw driver and exacto knife to cut a large  hole for roots and poke smalls holes for the air tube and extra vents

additional  step ! I dont want to have to remove the lid and plant every day to add food so I used an old " bong"  Embarrassed from My younger days  lol ! to insert thru a larger hole with the top sticking above the rocks and moss so I can drop food in easily and only remove the top once a week for water changes ( any large tube would work even a meds bottle with the  bottom cut out would be great )

 Ghost shrimp and or snails look great in these and are quite interesting to watch

The concept of keeping a betta in a bowl like this was proven unhealthy for the fish . Using this idea for ghost shrimp however is a great way to house them and add a little decorative flair to any room . Ghost shrimp do not require as much room as a beta and do not have nearly the high bioload . The plants do a great job filtering things and keep the water quality nice with 25 % weekly changes only . I get nervous about air flow so I added the extra air stone ran by a standard air pump power head and a 60 watt grow light on the desk other than that its very Low tech !

Note aquatic plants must be used in addition to the upper lid plant in order to provide enough filtration air and vegetation

 also pictured My repurposed  1.8 gallon ( in the process of growing out ) planted nano tank with only a few snails micro life plants and Marimo with mech filter
and My NO TECH amphiapod and snail jar aprox 2/3 gallon



thanks so much for looking . Ill update pics of My nano aquagarden once it fills in some more Smiley
