11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Melt and pour mania O: (Image heeeeaaavyyy) on: November 20, 2007 09:01:09 AM
I got a fevah.

And the only prescription is more soap. :'D

Here are the fruits of my weekend! ---->


These are the first ones I made, and are probably my favorite. They have grated orange peel and vanilla. Zesty!


The pink layer is strawberry Nestle Quick, but all you can really smell is the vanilla in the white layer.


Green tea!


I put All Spice in these. They are really nice and kind of manly.


Peaches and cream oatmeal. They don't smell too much.


Cinnamon and pecan oatmeal. These are really yummy.


I also made some really delicious mocha coffee ones, but somehow the picture disappeared.

As you can tell, I was basically rooting through my kitchen trying to find anything and everything to throw into soap.

Things that are extremely bad ideas:
-Crystal Lite lemonade powder. The soap didn't solidify and turned into a mush.

-Candy sprinkles. It seemed like a really good idea, but all of the color came off the sprinkles and turned the soap into a horrible purple gray color.

Filigree is my favorite thing to do with clay. :'D It's so fun.






This one is my favorite ^^^


Annnnnd, I also covered an altoid box!

13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Painted classical guitar! on: October 11, 2006 03:57:52 PM
My boyfriend's 18th birthday is tomorrow, and our two year anniversary is the next day (as well as my birthday), so I wanted to do something really special for him.

SO! I searched through every frightening thrift store and seedy pawn shop I could find until finally I came across a great 30-year-old classical guitar for $25. It was so perfect, mostly because it was about $50 less than I expected to pay.

I took it home and painted the front and back, then spray painted gold over lace on the sides. Finally, I slapped on a few coats of polyurethane, and my super-secret-special-surprise was finished! I worked my butt off on it, so I hope he likes it.


Here's the front. I like the skeleton best. Cheesy


Side with lace stencil.


Close up on the lace!


Space on the back!


Back of the neck


And the front of the headstock.

Unfortunately, I don't think he'll be able to play it. I was afraid to put strings on it, 'cause it bows in on the front, from not having enough support on the inside, and I thought all of my hard work would explode. Maybe the fanciness will make up for uselessness. Tongue

---->UPDATE!
He loved it. (: I wish I had a picture of his face. He said it was the best gift anyone had ever given him. I'll chalk this one up as

A SMASH HIT!
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Felt ipod covers! It is awesome! on: August 07, 2006 02:55:43 PM
I'd been wanting to do something with felt for a while, and interobang's post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68531.0) inspired me to hit that.

Unfortunately I don't think mine are quite as awesome.

15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Take that, dress code! on: August 06, 2006 07:15:36 PM
Since the dress code at my school only allows collared shirts, I decided to spice mine up a bit.



It's on the left side of the chest. I didn't get a whole picture because, well, I didn't.

I have an awesome belt with the same colors in it. I plan on looking extremely fly at school.

This is my first post, by the way. (:
