1  Petite refreshed seat! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by timarie on: November 12, 2010 03:24:13 PM
I lucked out and grabbed this fab chair from a friend of mine. The stars aligned, I moved into a larger space and she was moving cross country and had to toss some things. Woohoo!

The chair is a great shape but was in need of retouching.

Here's what I came up with.



The legs have some really great detailing!



And this is the before



I'm REALLY happy with it and am working on my next, albeit much larger, refinishing and re-upholstery.

2  Dumpster diving turned garden sculpture in Completed Projects by timarie on: January 01, 2009 04:16:04 PM
My sister's boyfriend makes metal sculptures out of pieces he finds in junk yards or dumpsters. He made an elephant for my sister last year and I've been bugging him to make something for my garden. So for Christmas I got a tin man! His body is made of two shovels, his face of a toaster oven tray, two spoons and a butter knife, his arms are two whisks from an electric beater. He's going in my garden as soon as the weather turns!

He doesn't have an account but I wanted to share some photos with craftsters:








Here is the creator with my new little friend!

3  Butterfly Shadow Box in Completed Projects by timarie on: March 31, 2008 10:27:50 AM
So this project comes along with a story. My grandfather passed away in late summer, since then we have kind of affiliated any sight of a butterfly with him being around. This started when my grandmother started taking note that whenever she felt most down a butterfly would show up and stick around, sometimes even groups. The same happened to my mother, whenever she was really missing him a butterfly would of course pop-up.

About 5 or 6 months ago she found a butterfly in the backyard, its life had already expired so she brought it inside and kept it in on the counter in a little dish. I know that's kind of morbid. . .but it continued to sit there until this past weekend.

My moms birthday was Saturday so I decided to make her a shadow box for her butterfly. I used papers, stamps, metal decorations, and fake flowers. In person it looks like the butterfly is in flight or near landing on one of the little flowers I put in the box, which has about 1 inch depth

4  ASL print in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by timarie on: March 30, 2008 07:22:33 PM
I made this shirt for my sister who has learned ASL over the last few years. She's started teaching recently.

It says "somebody loves me". I made the print for her bday.

This is her modeling one of the shirts.

5  Deliciously Deadly in Dessert by timarie on: March 30, 2008 09:53:32 AM
My mothers b-day was yesterday so my sister and I decided to make a cake. We made our own fondant out of a marshmallow recipe. It was supposed to sit over night but we didn't have time for that, as you see it's a bit uneven since we didn't get to let it sit  Sad

We stenciled it with a gun, hahaha, because my mom is a cop. Except our gun is much prettier, friendlier looking with blue sparkles. We airbrushed it with food color spray through a stencil I cut out.

me with the cake!



my sister mixing the fondant, it was super messy

AND Queens!!!!!!

Please come see us this weekend!



We're trying to keep a crafting group going in Astoria, it's tough with such busy ppl.

I know that the majority of us will be looking to put together some more craft shows. Maybe we will be able to do a larger one with some craftster ppl?

I'll meet in Williamsburg but I can't do it this weekend, maybe the following.

I love all the costume! I was Medusa this year as well!

I painted the snakes, cute them up and sewed them in by hand to the wig. My fingers hurt after stitching through rubber! The wig I started with was a 'dreadlock' wig, though it was actually braided and not like dreads at all.

I also did the face painting.

thanks for the comments! I've screened them on some cloth totes as well for grocery shopping. I printed those in green though. Here's a pretty bad photo of one, it needs to be cropped so you can see the bag better and not so much woods

10  Turnip Lady Place Settings in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by timarie on: October 10, 2007 12:19:41 PM
I thought of this design last week on a train ride home. It's a dress which shifts into the shape of a turnip at the hips/(turnip roundness??)

I made the screen for this design over the weekend and ended up printing it on TONS of things. I printed canvas totes, dish towels, napkins and place mats.

These are the place settings that I made. I printed them in a set of four. I LOVE them. Smiley



Here is a close up of the design, though I cut the last section of the root out of the picture by mistake



I made the tea set also!
