81  Arrr! Pirate Kit for all Ye Land Lubbin' Mates! in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by noelle on: May 01, 2005 09:59:54 PM
i found this to be perfect for my boyfriend's birthday.. he absolutely loved it!!
luckily, i have a key to his house, so i snuck the whole thing inside while he was at work one morning.

here is the treasure chest:

and here it is all set up:

lots of pics, so i made them links for slow connection folks.
i filled it with:

sea shells
clay pirate coins
etched bottle of rum
pirate cutlass (also clay)
scurvy prevention pamphlet
pirate shanties (ok, it was really a ray charles cd)
beach towel (sorry, the pirate flag was out of stock!)
tickets to a pirate show (the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy movie)

and i had clues, like a treasure map and message in the bottle, leading to the treasure trove.
clue 1   clue 2   clue 3   clue 4

That is gorgeous! Green is the new black, for sure.
What sort of dress was/is it?
why, thank you, thank you.

it's just a bias cut slip dress with some beadwork at the neckline.
i added the lighter green at the top to, uhm, hold in the DD's.  Undecided

84  simple green necklace set in Beads: Completed Projects by noelle on: February 03, 2005 04:34:05 PM
whipped this up today to match a slip dress.. i'm wearing it all to a valentine's dance.
i used some peach colored bead string, so it looks all floaty on me.   Cheesy

85  stripey purpley scrub skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: January 24, 2005 09:15:54 PM
i followed the outline of an A-line skirt i have onto newspaper, and then broke it up into 6 sections. then i tore up some of my mom's old scrubs.. it closes with a zipper between sections.. so it's a funky diagonal zipper  Wink which i love. it has a jagged hemline, too.

88  pet shrines in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by noelle on: December 19, 2004 08:29:53 AM
my dear best friend lost 3 pets in the last year. and her 18-yr old kitty just suffered a heart attack. so along with her christmas/solstice presents i decided to include some pet shrines.

i mod-podged paper over some altoids tins and inside the lids.
then hot-glued some tea-lights, crystals, and a card stating each crystal's metaphysical properties.
finally, i put a little felt creature up on the lid to represent the passed animal.

i wasn't really sure what all to do, so i left space for her to write or add things to the shrine.
what have others put in their pet shrines? i haven't seen too many examples..

89  all the bells & whistles! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: December 04, 2004 09:06:41 AM
just finished my first proper purse! it's a christmas present for a friend of mine, who needs something less serious to carry all her stuff around.

big surprise! it's a jordy bag.  Grin
with a lining, and a pocket, and a snap to keep it closed, and Sublime Stitching embroidery, and sequins too!!
there was supposed to be more.. more sequins or beaded fringe, or something. but alas the seams aren't quite in the right place for that.

oh, i also added a little cardboard inset in the bottom to help keep it's shape. i glued some extra fabric over it and then glued it to the lining.
