431  Re: "Let's Do the iTunes Shuffle!" 2 Mixed CDs Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by jungrrl on: July 22, 2005 05:29:15 PM
Well, since my name is now italicized, I thought I'd share the playlist I made (and pics, yay).


Bjork - Show Me Forgiveness
311 - Amber
The Smiths - How Soon is Now
The Misfits - Attitude
Uberzone - Believe
Sublime - What Happened
Bjork - Isobel
David Bowie & Trent Reznor - I'm Afraid of Americans
Sublime - Under My Voodoo
The Postal Service - Sleeping In
Blink182 - Mutt
Chemical Brothers - The Private Psychedelic Reel
Del the Funky Homosapien - One Big Trip
Outkast (Andre3000) - Prototype
Sublime - Chica me Tipo
The Streets - Blinded by the Lights


There's an unusually high number of Sublime songs on there... and surprisingly few electronic songs but still a good mix (at least I think so  Wink)

Here's the cover art so it's not all text



The inside is the playlist in Scrabble font.  That took some manuevering since there are no numbers in that font... and I had three artists with numbers in their names.

This is what happened to me when my fishbowl faded...





but when it was new it was the color of blue jello.  I mean EXACTLY the color of blue jello.  I have a picture of me holding it up to my hair for comparison.

434  Tie wristband and necklace. - 4 pics in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jungrrl on: June 19, 2005 08:36:19 AM
Well, this is kinda jewelry but not.  Kinda reconstructed clothing but not.  So I put it here (If it needs to be moved, then by all means)

What do you think?

The buttons are vintage (afaik) and seem to be made of stone? or something?  They're odd but pretty.

435  Before and After Bam shirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jungrrl on: June 15, 2005 11:36:28 PM
Before:

(pictures gone. Sad It was just a long sleeved shirt though)


After:







It was sooooooo easy.  Used the ribbon ruching tute on ohmystars and just cut off the sleeves. The ribbon is just fabric from the sleeves cut into a long strip.  Part of me wants to cut a v-neck and cut the straps thinner but most of me wants to leave well enough alone.  I know it's not the most amazing reconstruction ever but I'm pretty proud of it.

436  I made a dress! I'm special ;) - McCall's 4825 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jungrrl on: June 11, 2005 10:30:22 AM


excuse my weirdness, lol  

McCall's pattern 4825

Dress A with straps and belt from Dress C
Zipper closure instead of buttons and loops.

This dress was the bane of my existence last Friday.

I had finished the majority of it but needed to put in a zipper, attach the straps and tack down the lining.  I was going back home and figured my grandma would help me with all this and I could just use her sewing machine.  Well we started leisurely, tacking the side together and chatting and such.  Then realized we didn't have a zipper foot..... then searched my grandma's craft barn (yes, she has a whole barn - well, a little mini-barn - full of craft stuff)..... then went back and forth from the fabric stores 3 times before we realized that what they had didn't fit the machine.... then went to Wal-mart and I said "let's just buy some Liquid Fabric just in case".... then tried to sew in the zipper with a regular foot, decided that didn't work and then finally 5 hours later glued in the damn zipper. THEN we attached the straps and I tacked down the lining.

Did I mention I was wearing it to a wedding the next day? lol

I need to redo the straps since they're coming undone and I need to hem the bottom so it doesn't fray but that's about it.  I LOVE the fabric.  Got it on ebay for MEGA-cheap and it's way cuter in person than it was in the auction so I was stoked. (I can give the name of the seller if anyone wants it. - via PM, of course -  Don't know how often she sells fabric but she doesn't do the titles well so they don't get found and thus don't get bids)
It's not the most flattering for my figure but it's cool.

so yea.  First thing I've made that was more complicated than a simple skirt.

Smiley  I'm so glad you like it all Megan!  I thought it was cool stuff but then I saw your and wished I'd put in some more heheh

I did take pics!

Transformer skirt (a-line w/ drawstring - I just modified a pattern I had)




Two Beetlejuice journal-y things (yay for boyfriends in art school who have every prismacolor pen known to man)




Autobot Logo embroidery on a purchased tote





I decided to do the tote VERY last minute and I wish I'd thought of it earlier because there were more things I would've done to it.  I really wanted to put a Decepticon logo on the other side and/or put "Megantron" on it in some awesome font, but I didn't have time.  Ah well, such is life.  Turned out pretty good I think for that  being my first use of realy embroidery floss (usually I just use thread!)

I swear I have never seen stuff as cool as I just got today from megantron.

I was walking out the door to go buy an air conditioner (it was soooo hot in my apt today I couldn't do anything but sweat) and I stumble upon a gigantic package.

Here were the contents:

A super cute pink ribbed tank with a Rainbow Brite transfer


Detail of Ms. Rainbow


With the most adorable pin (is it shrinky dink? whatever it is I have to get some. it's sooo amazing)


A She-Ra lampshade.  Her sword and the edges of her cape are cut out of the shade.  I have no idea how she did this but it's freaking awesome....



And finally the single cutest thing I have EVER seen in my entire life.... I seriously teared when I saw it.  Gobo was the name of one of my rats (he passed about about 6 months ago) and he was the love of my life in rat form, so this really got to me, even more than the pin.  (oh, I forgot to mention, if you can't tell it's a painting and it's going in my bedroom)



Close up (these colors look truer to life on my monitor)




I almost didn't let megantron into the swap because she was technically 3 days shy of 1 month.  I am SOOOOOOOO glad that I let her in and chose her as my partner! (She was the only one who chose Transformers and I had a mint sheet.... so it made sense)

I seriously thank you sooo much.  Kiss This is the coolest stuff I've ever seen Smiley
I know I'm laying it on thick but it's true! You are one talented girl and I really appreciate everything.  I thought my package was good until I saw this! Now I wish I had done more. Cheesy  I'm pretty sure you'll like it but still, it doesn't compete with this!

Ok so here's all the wicked stuff anna3LC sent me.

My animals were rats and elephants.

Here's my rattie card.


The cutest bobblehead I've ever seen in my life.


My roller-skating elephant wrap skirt


detail


and the most adorable pillows EVER!!!! They're elephant butts and they look sooooo good on my couch!  My friend is coming in two weeks and she's going to be so insanely jealous (she loves elephants, too). Wink


(and Anna, don't worry about the second one not being filled.  I seriously have a backpack full of polyfil that I haven't had anything to do with!)
