Fun!  With the helix shapes and the dotty bits it looks like an illustration from a science text.  That's a compliment, btw!  The pink pickup truck... makes it like the Science of Modern Life or something from the 50s.  Kinda.   Wink

Be sure to show us when you do them!

Haha, thanks! I think the pick-up truck lends the whole piece a kitschy charm or something like that. I've got a load of other neon plastic trinkets like that I'm dying to use! I think I might try proper DNA strands next. I'm dorky like that Smiley

I think my own heart is all aflutter.  Sigh.

I really like your color combinations and that the beads on the necklace are significantly smaller than the etched shell pendant which compliments and accents the "main event", in my opinion.  I think your photos are attractive.  You have good lighting and nice composition, however if I were looking to purchase the necklace I'd like to see it laid out so I could see the whole thing clearly.  A shot on a neck (real or fake) is nice so one can see how long it is, of course actually length (inches or centimeters) is very nice info for text.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I think your background is really nice.  Nothing on your pieces blends into it, but it's not boring and the softness adds a nice ambiance to your presentation.

I've one cat that would probably go for it and one that would head for the hills.  She wouldn't scratch or bite, but she'd sure tell me a thing or 2 and wiggle something fierce.  Anyway... seeing this makes me want to make a hat with people ears on it for a cat!  I'll have to sew it, though, yarn is nervous-ing.

I love finding things in cheap things that I buy. Make sense? haha.

When I got my vintage sewing machine table from craigslist(FOR FREE!!) I found the manual for the "new" singer featherweight sewing machine that's only *drumroll* 11 pounds Cheesy! And a bunch of old stuff including this: http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee40/formycraftster/039.jpg .. Any idea what it is?

Haha!  I have a Singer Featherweight... and it ain't.  I served me well from age 9 or so into my mid-late 20s though.  Of course, I used my mom's new)er machine for anything that I would want to finish the seams on.  Or make button holes in.  Which brings me to thinking that what you have there might be a button hole maker.  I was given a Singer one, but it's away in a box and as I never used it I don't remember exactly what it looks like.

It's so inspiring that you're crafting with your girls and that they could stick it out for such a long project and do such a nice job of it!  Good work, Mom!

Holy cats!  I can't think of a single thing that would be a better use of that dress.

I like the new hoodie, and I think the lining on the hood add a nice touch to it.

Of the topic, I have been hanging around this forum for the last half year, and from the point of view of someone that rides a motorcycle every day, it is interesting to see how the 'moto' style ends up in the oddest places around here.  For the daily motorcycle driver, these things have a purpose.  In terms of the off-center zipper on jackets, it serves two purposes.  1. The underneath panel goes all the way to the other side, so that the chest ends up having two layers of protection from the wind.  2. Most quality jacket makers will offer expansion panels that zip in-between the two zippers so that the jacket lasts 20+ years without having to be retailored for expanding guts.

Also, wearing a hoodie while going 70 mph is not my idea of a good time.

Anyway, back to the topic, I think you should add some white moto-style zippers on the cuffs.  (They keep the wind from going up the sleeve).  It would add to the look of the hoodie.

Haha!  I was just wondering again, what "moto-style" meant.  Now I know.  I don't even like wearing a hood to drive a car, messes with my peripheral vision.  However, none of this practical stuff diminishes the coolness off the recon.  I do think the zippered cuffs would look cool.
