Now that's dedication Smiley If I had a job that I could pull that off (...or a job..) I would definitely be having fun too
Love the eye stitches best so far. And your hair.

Yeeeess! Funny and looks great. I myself like bold bold fonts though, for readability and max impact. haha.
One day I will have a sewing machine...

I'm a cashier and kids at my store always whisper, "Mom!  Look, her earring are army guys!"

I can just imagine that would make my day. Love it!

woooow, i saw this and instantly wanted one, haha. that looks stunning, I love the size of it. And what a process, eee thats a lot of work.
Then I see you learned this from the cat armour guy-yes!! He has to be quite the character.

And I too thought it was cake. Jeeze, everything is just awesome here. But I'm still hungry!

Good to know Smiley Bit I'm keeping it for myself, so destruction is inevitable.
Unfortunately I have more important things to do and I can only make slow slow research on this.

ok, i have no artistic ability whatsoever. 


these are super cute. I love that you've been drawing them forever, haha. that makes them unique and all the more fun to look at.
The last one though, I wish it was on a pale yellow ground, or some light color. White is so boring!

This is really intriguing...it's so simple but I love the look of it! Especially the swirly sun!
My sister has a slowly growing elephant collection...alas, she doesn't have wall space. I would love to try something like this though for myself at least.

I love the finish on this, it really makes it look antique. But I am far too impatient for all those layers! It would be worth it though.
Alas, I am too attached to this game. I wouldn't dare think of ruining a perfectly playable scrabble board. But the monopoly idea...>Smiley

Beautiful no?



...just lovely.


Okay. This is a century old victorian photo album that I just found. It really needs some love. Now, the good thing to do, for something that should have some value...is restore it...right?
But before I knew what it was I just wanted it for parts for a portfolio book.
So I think maybe keep the original look, same binding...but make it fit larger images...and perhaps brass covered pages instead of the really plain paper (Normally these books have a rich cherry wood paper for the pages...mines not good enough)
But I'm still not sure if I want to search for a blue velvet or see about something else.

I also need some nice quality materials for replacing ...most of it. But I think I'll wait until I have this disemboweled to get a list. (All the metal is held down with nails on a wood frame..fancy!)

Right now all I'm looking for is some ideas(basically, what would you do with this?), some places to look at (maybe a more booksy forum, materials website, etc.), some people that know restoration?

(in the meantime...I don't post enough here...Sad )

paint on some horizontal or vertical stripes over it, it would keep it simple and look good
