1  Open stitch Scarf+ Tute!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by diy4life on: December 03, 2006 05:05:56 PM
I've been crocheting for about a year, but I wasn't sure I was quite ready for the monotony of a scarf.(I'm more of a instant gratification crocheter! Smiley) But after awhile my first scarf began to finally come together...

3  News paper/magazine flowers in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by diy4life on: December 03, 2006 04:34:20 PM
These are my newspaper and magazine flowers. I followed the instructions, but they just didn't turn out right at first. But, after many hours of toil, they finally came out right!!! the floral tape I used wasn't working and that added to the trouble. I made three-- two were made from an urban outfitters catalog and the other was made of newspaper. Grin

4  gift ideas 4 bff needed!!!!!! in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by diy4life on: November 25, 2006 01:19:39 PM
So I have this friend, nicole (left)...




~13yrs old
~I need a Christmas gift
~Has obsessions w/ Titanic, Little People Big World, penguins, Abercrombie
~ she can knit so it wouldn't be cool to make something she can make herself!
~She's a really good dancer
~Likes mod, trendy stuff
~She just got a room redo so maybe something for her room? The colors are hot pink, lime green, and bright orange
~She likes manicures & spa stuff

She's an awesome friend, but shes really hard to shop for so I decided that this year I'd make her something this year.
IDEAS, PLEASE!!!

This is my Journal!!!! The covers are made of watercolor paper which is kinda like cardstock. I painted and stamped them and wove them together!!!!!!!!! Smiley
Then, I added quotes to the inside on pieces of paper that I bound in between the covers.

6  My Reconstructed Sweaters!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by diy4life on: September 17, 2006 01:19:23 PM
I saw this idea in a Teen Vogue once and I was like, "I have to make one of those!!!" So I did! Grin This is the 2nd one I made, but it's got before and after pics..........
BEFORE: a boring old sweater that was about to be donated, but I couldn't let my mom part with it just yet...


AFTER: I added some colorful buttons and whacked off the sleeves, and sha-zam! A new sweater!


I actually like this one better...It was my first one but it didn't have a before pic.....


Tell me what you think!!! <3

OK, so maybe it's not quite COMPLETE, but I was too excited!
I started this like 3 years ago! (I know, shame on me) but It's so pretty It makes my bedroom happy to be in its presence! Cheesy



I love it! I've just saved all of these old magazines...
