1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stenciled Hip Hop Obama shirt on: May 20, 2010 06:59:44 AM
I made this months ago, and kept forgetting to post it. My BFF saw a shirt that she wanted, but it costed too much $$, so I said, "I'll just make one for you!"  Grin So here it is!  Cheesy

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / 36 hours & my MP loaf is still soft... on: April 20, 2010 07:55:15 PM
I used 6 lbs of low sweat CP looking base, added fragrance, sea salt and probably added too much cocoa butter. It was in the fridge today for about 8 hours, and I can still dent the top of it and squeeze the sides of the plastic loaf mold. Shouldn't it be solid by now? If I did add too much cocoa butter, how can I solidify it without buying more soap? More salt maybe? Clay? I need this to be ready in 3 days! Thanks.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Skulls + Tulle + Lace= The Baddest Chick in 2nd Grade on: April 07, 2010 08:04:13 PM
Here's another dress I made for Melody. I just traced a tank top she had and added a yard of skirt with tulle underneath. It's all cotton knit waffle with a ribbed waist band. The bow is a detachable pin. I'm so proud of this one. I want one in my size! Thanks for looking.  Grin

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a dress!...using a pattern! on: March 22, 2010 10:32:50 AM
I am so proud of this dress!  Grin I'm not very good at reading patterns (or at sewing for that matter) so up until now I've free handed any clothing or accessories. I made this dress for my daughter's school picture day instead of buying her something she'd hardly wear. I bought one of those 2 hour patterns that actually took me almost 3 days to complete.  Embarrassed But, I am happy with it, and all my time spent on this was worth the many years she can grow with it.

The dress is so versatile:

She can ballet dance in it:

Fight karate in it:

or just be cute as a friggin' button!

thanks for looking!  Cheesy
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first original stencil: Eternal Love on: July 30, 2009 06:30:54 AM
Hey craftsters! So...I've been stuck in Twilight Land for the past week, and almost everything I do revolves around vampires these days. (Yes. I have become one of those obsessed "fanpires" of an over commercialized teen love story, *Hangs head in shame* but it's just not the Kitschkween way to hide what truly enjoy.) The new uber obsession prompted me to create this hand drawn stencil image. It's pretty self explanatory, but I will describe it anyway. It's a set of vampire teeth. The fangs are at the ends and the word "eternal" take place of the middle teeth. My original design said "Bite Me" and I made another one that said "Love." I will post those when I make them. I love it! The fact that it's my own writing makes it even better! Thanks for looking.  Cheesy

6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / My dream soap: charcoal, sea salt, green clay, and kelp...can it be done? on: July 05, 2009 06:28:34 AM
Hello B&B craftsters! I'm new to this category and I have a ton of questions, but here is my first: I've just started making MP soaps, and I would like to upgrade from decorative to useful. My dream soap would contain dead dea salt, activated bamboo charcoal, green clay, and kelp powder. So far, I haven't found any soap that contains all those ingredients. Is it because it can't be done?

My other question is: is it worth investing those ingredients in a MP soap base? Does anyone have any suggestions of what MP soap base would be the closest to CP quality? I want my soap to detoxify, exfoliate and tone my skin without over drying. I wouldn't use it on my face, though.

Here's my 3rd question: what EO would compliment these ingredients? I don't want to use any fragrance, just the natural scent resulted from EO and the ingredients listed above. I was thinking something black pepper-ish or lemongrass. I want something fresh and natural, maybe a little musky, not too floral or too sweet. Woody orientals smell best on me.

Oh yeah, I also want the soap to be black. What can I do for that? I know the charcoal won't be enough to make an opaque black.

Thanks for your help!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / strawberries, s'mores and owl felt needle books on: July 04, 2009 07:13:21 PM
I've been making needle books all week and thought i'd share some with the class. I made a plain strawberry, chocolate dipped strawberry, s'more, and owl. I'm working on lots of owls in different colors right now. The strawberry pattern can be found here. I just pretty much made up the other 2 as I went along. Thanks for looking!

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / stenciled and screen printed crafty tee! on: June 26, 2009 06:50:11 PM
I just started started stenciling for real (printing and cutting them out myself), and I got a Yudu screen printing machine. The scissor stencil was painted in silver. After that dried I screen printed my crafty design over it in black. At first I didn't like how the design burned onto my screen, but it really grew on me. I made this shirt for stitch81 for the Ongoing Wishlist Swap.

Additional pictures can be seen here.

Here's my first project using my crafty screen print image. I also used a custom fleur de lis stamp carved by loves2experiment:

Anyone is free to use my image for their own personal or swap use, but please don't use it for monetary gain. I wish I didn't have to say that b/c it's just common courtesy, but well, you know...

Thanks for looking!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / scrap brooches! on: June 01, 2009 03:19:03 PM
I have a lot of scrap fabric and ribbon, so I decided to make brooches with them! These are the only 2 I've made so far, but I will be making a lot more. Thanks for looking!

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Ichigo and magnetic Katamari Ball - picture plump on: May 29, 2009 02:05:39 PM
Finally, after 2 years, I completed my Ichigo doll. I think I just got bored with it, because I didn't touch it for a whole year and a half straight. I started crocheting magnetic katamari balls a couple weeks ago, so that motivated me to finish her off. My daughter loves it and I'm happy with it. I used Ana Paula's Katamari Prince pattern found in her store: http://anapaulaoli.etsy.com. I didn't follow a pattern for the Katamari Ball, but it was inspired by Amy Shimel's pattern found on her blog: http://amysbabies.wordpress.com/magnetic-katamari-pattern/. Thanks for looking!
