1  Re: Geek Chic swap (SIGNUP CLOSED; MAIL BY 15/06/2009 - June 5th). in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by rhymewithorange on: June 16, 2009 08:44:20 AM
So I'm all done, but I'll be sending late  Angry   I am moving next week and between packing and finishing things up at work I am busy like whoa. I'm shipping a lot of my stuff for the move, so I will probably send when I do that just to deal with less FedEx time. Or I may try to ship tomorrow from the post office, but I'm not entirely sure if USPS ships to Canada, or what they charge if they do...guess I should research it.

Anyway, I am so so sorry dukemanistan! I promise I will send your package by the end of the week! In the meanwhile here is a really really lame teaser, haha.

5  New and improved cons! in Shoes: Completed Projects by rhymewithorange on: July 05, 2008 05:41:54 PM

So I saw this post on craftster a while ago and I knew I had to try it. I have a whole bunch of old pairs of black converse sitting around that have holes in the fabric, but with okay soles, so this was the perfect project! I also used this tutorial from instrucables to help out. In short, you cut off the old fabric part and use it as a pattern to make the new ones, then just glue them to the soles. I used E6000 since it's strong yet flexible. I also lined the insides with denim from some old jeans to try to make them a little more rigid. It was kind of a hassel and next time I think I will just double up the fabric, although I only had a fat quarter to work with, and if I doubled up the fabric it might have been a little short.

But, yes...here are my lovely re-vamped converse!

Yes, I attached the original labels, haha.

Action shots:

And look at how straight my sewing was! Holy crap, I am still amazed by this! I have sewn about twice in the past ten years so I am pretty proud of how this came out.

I have worn them a few times and they have held up. I definitely learned a few things along the way though, like:
- Don't make it the exact same size as the pattern, as you will need extra to glue it in. The first shoe I made I didn't leave extra on the toe-end so there is a bit of a gap. The tongue kind of hides it, but it still doesn't look awesome.
- Try to smooth out the fabric when you glue it in. I didn't do this as much as I should have and so they are kind of uncomfortable as there are little regions of fabric that pooch out and poke you in the foot. Ow.

All in all I think the whole thing went really well. I finished it in a weekend (or, it would have been a weekend if I had figured out how many eyelets I needed and bought enough so I didn't have to run to Joann's later. Duh.)  The black pair I have now is just about at the end of days, so I will be trying this again soon! And the best part? The fabric was about $3.75 on Etsy and the eyelets were $4, so I now have a pair of totally original converse that were less than $10! Woo hoo!!

6  they're like really thin pancakes in Recipes and Cooking Tips by rhymewithorange on: June 07, 2008 10:35:49 AM
So the other day I got blintzes at village inn and they were awesome. Then I saw pre-made crepes at the grocery store a few days later and decided I could make my own blintzes. But then when I went back to the store I couldn't find the crepes again, so my boyfriend suggested we make our own (this is why I love him!) It went way better than expected, and I actually did the fancy flippy thing one time, woo hoo!

Action shot


Strawberry sauce for on top. Soooooo good.

The finished product, yay!!!

All in all it was an awesome way to spend a morning. Definitely time consuming, but worth it if you ask me.

Oh, and I got the recipe here.

7  Re: nifty christmas light pictures in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by rhymewithorange on: June 03, 2008 04:16:15 PM
These are awesome! I love taking pictures like this! I had a mode on my old camera (I called it "man at night mode" cause that's what the icon looked like) where it would flash and then keep the shutter open...the result was cool light effects, like so (thumbnails):

But, yes, no one ever seemed to think these were as cool as I do....I'm glad there is someone out there that does! And I've never thought of playing with x-mas lights...I am totally thinking about breaking some out now to try it, haha.

I received from bigfatroses on Monday but I just got home and opened my package today. She included a whole bunch of great stuff about Sumter - magazines, pamphlets, and a necklace!!! And I love her frame!!

I went down to Walgreens this afternoon to get the pictures developed, but when I went to pick them up they told me I couldn't get a photo CD cause their burner was broken   Sad   And of course my scanner doesn't work, so I was forced to just take pictures of the pictures. Lame lame lame I know. So the result is some of the pictures I put in the photobucket album don't look as good as they do in real life. I may try to retake some tomorrow cause it was kind of cloudy today and I think better light might make them come out better.

But, yes, anyway....here is the frame and all the goodies I received:

The frame. Loves!

The necklace!

And my favorite pictures:

You can't really tell, but in real life the water in this picture looks amazing.

I'm impressed that you got this close to a goose. Geese totally scare me!!!

This one is my absolute favorite and it shall be going in the frame. I love the rainbow!!

I absolutely loved this swap!!!! I'm hooked!

9  Re: 2007 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go he in Halloween Costumes by rhymewithorange on: November 01, 2007 06:29:43 PM
Alright, after looking at everyone's costumes I'm a little less impressed with my own...it didn't turn out they way I wanted cause I just didn't have the time. Damn school getting in the way of my crafting.

Anyway....my costume. I was a radioactive isotope. Carbon-14 to be exact. I just wore a yellow dress I got cheap (I was going to make one, but, once again...time) and stenciled a 14C on it real quick. I wore a belt with pompoms on it that were my protons and neutrons, and glowy braclets with pompoms for electrons on them...except the electrons kept falling off and by the end of the night I had a +4 charge! Needless to say I was pretty unstable....

This picture kind of shows my belt.

This picture shows my electrons well. I had them on five braclets for my five orbitals: two on the left hand with two electrons each representing my s orbitals, and three on my right hand (two with one electron and one with none) representing my p orbitals. I wish I had three hands so all the orbitals could have been on different "energy levels." I guess I could have put some on my necklaces....oh well.

I tried making earrings that were the radioactive symbol out of shrinkie dinks but all of my attempts came out all warped and curvey, so I gave up on that. Which was too bad cause I really think it would have made the outfit a lot better. Oh well.

And, if you're wondering, one person understood what I was all night. Ha.

10  pipet tip racks??? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by rhymewithorange on: July 07, 2007 07:16:12 AM
Okay, so I work in a lab and we got through pipet tips like whoa. They come in boxes in these purple racks, and we recycle the boxes but we just throw away the racks and it seems like such a waste. Anyone got any good ideas of what these could become? I was thinking maybe like a necklace holder, but that's my only thought and I figured there's gotta be something better out ther than that.

It's kind of hard to tell from the picture but they come in two sizes and are about half an inch thick. The holes are pretty small, about the size of a pencil, and they're about fiveish inches long.
