241  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / I Need Help on: May 11, 2007 10:29:14 PM
OK, so I have make-up.  I wear make-up.  But it's so plain and neutral, and (I hate to admit it) I'm not really sure how to put it on so it doesn't look so bland.

I'd like to bring out my eyes a little more- they're really pretty.  I'd just like to know what products and colors to use, and a little information about how exactly to use it.  Here's some information to help determine what colors would be the best: I have fair skin with a slight olive tint, dark brown greenish eyes, and medium-dark brown hair.

Thanks in advance for your help!
242  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Pretty Lip Balm on: May 11, 2007 09:18:25 PM
OK, so here are my lip balms.  The pretty pink one went to my bf's sister.  It's peppermint flavored, and she loved the color.  The dark one in the tube is almond scented and just has a hint of tint.  The layered one is grape jolly rancher flavored.  I made another one that's honey almond in a tube, but it's just boring color.  Here is the pic:

Here's a stuffy I made for my dear bf who graduated tonight!  The arms are kind of crappy 'cause I ran out of time and didn't have time to make better ones.


And just for kicks, here's Sierra, who kept getting in the way:

244  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Yum, sushi! (tons of pics) on: May 04, 2007 07:15:19 AM
Here are some sushi(s?) I made!



A close-up of the sushi (please excuse the crumb on the rug):

And no sushi meal is complete without the fortune cookie!

I had to go to Tokyo Joe's and get some sushi after making these.  They made me so hungry!
245  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Beginner "Round" Pattern on: April 11, 2007 11:05:24 AM
I've been teaching my friend how to crochet, and she'd like to learn how to crochet in the round.  She has not completed a project yet (she was working on a baby blanket, but had a misscarriage  Sad).  I'm looking for a very basic pattern for her that uses just basic stitches (sc, hdc, and dc) that will teach her how to increase and get the hang of crocheting in the round.  I thought about coasters, but the coaster patterns I'm finding look a little too complicated for her first project.  Does anyone have any patterns/ideas that would be good for her to learn crocheting in the round, and also offer a first project?
246  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A Couple of FO's on: April 08, 2007 08:07:03 PM
Here is a hat, courtesy of natiux.  Grin  Please forgive the weird angle- my bf took the pic and he's about a foot taller than me.


And also, following the Happy Poo craze, here is my Happy Poo.  It's a gift for a friend of mine that works in a vet lab.  She does a lot of fecal tests.  Ha ha.
247  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A Couple of Recent FO's on: February 28, 2007 08:10:07 PM
I was a little down on the crochet earlier this year because I crocheted a whole bunch of stuff for Christmas, and *gasp!* was sick of crocheting.  But now, I've got my wild crochet obsession back (just in time for when the rent is due, so I can't buy yarn  Cry)  I'm currently working on an amigurumi version of the Prince from Katamari Damacy, and a Sumo-piggy.  Enough about that, though.  Here are two recent FO's: the invincibility star from Super Mario for my sweet bf, and a cute purse for myself.  I didn't like the purse at first, but I decided to use it and it's growing on me.  Smiley



248  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Shrug question on: December 18, 2006 09:28:13 AM
I made the shrug that\\\'s crocheted in one piece (can\\\'t remember the name in the book), and it turned out really cute.  I have an issue about the shrug, though, and I\\\'m wondering how I might fix it.  Since I\\\'m a big gal, I had to make the big size for the shrug.  However, the sleeves are just big tubes and are waaay too big for even my fat arms.  I had my mother mark off a good sleeve size, sewed it up, and cut off the excess crocheting.  In theory this was a good idea.  In reality it\\\'s a terrible idea because the sleeve is now becoming slightly un-raveled.  Is there a way I can salvage this shrug, or am I going to have to make a new one?  If and when I make a new one, how do I make it so the sleeves aren\\\'t so darned big?
249  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My first post on: December 15, 2006 08:18:02 AM
OK, so I\\\'m new here.  I love this place!  Crochet is awesome, and I don\\\'t think I could ever live without it.

Anyway, I\'d love to post pics of my amigurumi, but I apparently have to post 10 times before I do so.  Since I\'m at work, I\'m having trouble with the link dealy, so.....  If you go to photobucket.com and look up amigurl55, you\'ll see the first two amigurumi I\'ve ever made.  Since then I\'ve made a mushroom and some fortune cookies, and a cute little Captain Jack Sparrow.  Hopefully I can get them up-loaded to Photobucket some day and post them for you all.

I\'ve made some other projects, too.  Most recently I\'ve made a hat and scarf combo for my bf\'s mom out of lion brand chenille thick and quick (turned out sooo cute!).  I\'ve also FINALLY finised a blanket for my dear bf.  Currently I\'m working on an amigurumi bird, and I\'m going to start on an amigurumi mushroom for a friend.  I\'m going to make it look like the one-up mushroom from super mario brothers.  Sweet.

Now that I\'ve written a book....  I look forward to chatting with all of you!
