1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Loved One in the Military Swap Round 2! SIGNUPS CLOSED! on: February 03, 2008 04:04:20 PM
Since my partner is about 2 streets away from me I am just going to bring it to her .. I hope that's ok!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My "Custard" Craft Room [IMG Obese] on: February 03, 2008 10:34:02 AM
Because no man has a custard colored room, right?   Wink

In our old apartment my craft room somehow turned into a "crash" room (I blame the futon) so I vowed that in our new house, my craft room would be just that .. my craft room!  No dog kennels, no guest beds, no Army gear pouring out of closets.  So after a weekend of unpacking, organizing, and throwing all of the stuff that I listed above into my husbands "room of stuff", I present my craft room!  Hope you like Smiley

Rounding the corner from the hallway, you know you are entering my space by the Weasley Family clock outside the door Smiley

The view from the hallway (sorry the picture is so dark, but hello natural lighting!!!)

The closet, which houses my rather pathetic yarn stash, various wips and "I will someday do this" projects, an amigurumi hippo that has needed to be pieced together for almost a year now (oops?), and boxes of pictures that I will go through someday .. maybe Wink

Closeup of the sign next to the closet .. my crafting, and life, mantra.  (Also shows the closest actual wall color)

Closeup of my pathetic yarn stash once again .. it was about double the size until Christmas showed up .. stupid Christmas  Tongue

My grandpa was an animator for Disney long long long ago, and he used to make a TON of pictures like this for all the grandkids after he retired.  When my Dad passed away he stopped drawing and painting unfortunately, so this is the last thing he ever made me Sad  It's lovely though isn't it?

Shelving I put up all by myself (er .. sort of) .. top shelf holds various stuffies & ami's, HP related stuff, and my  House Elf and Sorcerer Mickey hat!

Middle shelf holds stenciling stuff (and my Disney pin collection), Bottom shelf holds books, sketchbooks, misc. crap (fabric, stickers, stationary), my Dad's Giants hat (Gooooo Giants!), and a Squirtle in a Pocket Monster's ball my husband gave me when we first started dating <3

My crafting desk (hi Brian!) that will someday hold a sewing machine.  Someday.

My faaaaavorite part of the whole room .. netting lights from IKEA that I very cleverly attached things to that I like looking at.  Cards from my parents & friends, a picture of my Dad, stepmom, & little sisters, and random other things.

Wall next to the desk has 3 shadow box picture frames my best friend Lo made me

Top of my VCR/DVD combo (how ELSE am I going to watch my old BSB videos Tongue) .. sewing kit, jar of pom poms,  harry potter tin full of ribbons/notions/random crap, and mug o' pens/pencils/markers.

My second favorite part of the room .. a martini glass full of buttons & safety eyes.  I just think it looks cool Wink

That's all!  Who wants to come craft with me?

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: The Monster at the End of This Post--Lovable, Furry Old Grover <3 on: January 28, 2008 03:28:15 PM
Oh my gosh.  This is my favorite book of all times.  I made my Dad read it to me over and over for literally hours on end.  I truly believe that this book inspired my love of reading and English, no joke.  When my Dad passed away I put a copy of it in his casket with a picture of him reading it to me.  I definitely have to try my hand at making a Grover now, I've never even thought of that!  Thank you so much!!

My crafting is going wonderfully .. I am actually almost done  Shocked

I'm Nicole, 26, married to David, 23.  He is Active Duty Army with 1st Cav in Fort Hood, Texas Smiley  He is a 25S, Satellite Communications (Signal Corps), which has the longest AIT of any MOS Tongue  We met in college, got engaged on our 2 year dating anniversary, 4 days after we got engaged he went and joined the Army (much to my surprise!), and a month after that we got married .. and a month after that he left for Basic Training!  Tongue  He did Basic Training at Fort Benning, GA, and AIT at Fort Gordon, GA.  Because his AIT was so long I was allowed to move down there with him and after a few months he was allowed to live with me, so it was pretty nice.  Our two best friends from back in college are both in the Army and stationed here as well (well one is playing in the Sandbox currently Tongue), and David's best friend from Basic/AIT is stationed here, so we've been pretty lucky in that respect.  I have my degree in Elementary & Secondary Education with a dual major in English & American Sign Language, and I work full time teaching Pre-K. 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful & crafty Sunday!

Very cute, but the first thing I noticed was "SHE'S PLAYING NEOPETS!"  haha Tongue

Yay Disney! We(Mom and I) go there a lot. I am 24 and it is still awesome. That headband will be a big hit. It's super cute.

We just went in October. Here's something to get you more excited  Smiley

Yeah I try to go at least once a year .. my parents take my little sister 3 or 4 times a year.  I'm 26 and I still turn in to a little kid there!

The picture worked, I am so excited!   Cheesy

I wanted something super easy and thoughtless to do one night while the boys were playing video games, so I made a little lovey blanket for the babies first birthday using some scraps of Peaches & Creme, Caron Simply Soft, & Moda Dee Cheerio I think?

A close up of the stitches Smiley

In preparation for an upcoming trip to Disney World for my baby sisters birthday, I have begun crafting anything Disney-related I can find.  Modifying the flower headband in the tutorials list here, I came up with this!

With flash but you can see the mickey head best in this picture

No flash so the color is true in this one

Action shot!

Whatcha think?
