That really is so beautiful, I am sure that not only will your sister treasure it. But your nephew will when he is older.

I agree that this is gorgeous.  However, I'm picturing her teenaged nephew being just a little grossed out.  I mean, those are boobs, dude.  His <i>mom's</i> boobs.  :-)

Yay!  It's always good to know that I'm not alone in my love for this coming-of-age story or for David Bowie, either.

I have to see if I can find a photo of them together. Smiley

Make sure you invite her to help you find the picture.  The search and the inevitable stories will help her so much more than the finished product will.  I swear my grandma blushed when she had to admit that his parents weren't home when they took the picture.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Meta Mirror - Grandparents kissing! Eww! on: December 09, 2006 04:49:43 PM
My grandmother unearthed a picture of herself and my grandfather kissing in the mirror. 
 
I bought a raw wood mirror on clearance for $7 several months ago.  A perfect decoupage combination.


How very meta.


This is the back of the photo where Grandma has written, "Can't stand this stuff!"  I can picture her feeling rebellious for both the contraction and the word, "stuff."



These are images printed out on an ink jet printer.  I used Aleen's Decoupage Glue, which I prefer over Modge Podge.  By itself, it didn't cause the image to run.  When I tried to mix it with water to thin it out, then I had problems.  I only spread the glue on the back but wasn't too fussy about keeping it off the front.  I think I might spray a layer of shellack over it since Windex seems to cut through the glue.  That was lucky since I didn't protect the glass at all.  Any suggestions?

The best sign I've ever seen was at a craft show.  I was young and so can't remember the exact wording but it was something like:

"Everyone says they can do that at home . . . but will you?"

Maybe not so profound, but I've had very few moments of regret because I left something on the table and then did not make the cute thing I intended to make.  I also get the good feeling of supporting fellow craftsters.

Have all sorts of fun.

The best revenge is to make art out of pain.

Nice job.

I've been working on a quilt out of my ex-husband's boxer shorts.  I'm getting close to being done and I'm starting to wonder what I'll do with it once it's finished.  It's queen sized.  Huge!

The lace on your shirt is an especially nice touch.

Thanks for the pattern.  I can't wait to get started.  I'll have to make one for all three of my brothers or they'll steal it.

Piece together fabric crazy-quilt style throw pillows. 

I just made a decoupage mirror using the same image in several different sizes printed on regular paper.  Family photos would work well for that.

My favorite homemade Christmas present is snowglobes out of upside-down recycled jars, plastic toys, plastic foliage, water and crazy glue.  I got the idea from ReadyMade last year.

Whoa my goodness!  That is gorogeous work.  It's such an original look - not derivative of any of that generic high fantasy design.  Nice job.
