1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Henna! on: February 23, 2008 04:02:16 PM
This is my first post on this board, so hi everyone!

All right, so this isn't something that I did on my own, but I thought I'd share anyways. I was actually visiting some relatives in India just a few weeks ago. My aunt took me to get some henna done (professionally! eep!) and it came out looking really nice.

Sadly, it completely faded a few weeks later. But it was awesome while it lasted!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / incredible. on: February 22, 2008 11:16:22 AM
Okay, so this most definitely is not something that I'm planning on making, seeing as my clothing making skills are severly limited....but I just thought I'd share with you guys the amazing dress Kiera Knightley wears in Atonement.



I know Kiera gets a lot of criticism for how thin she is, but the dress is incredible and I think she looks fabulous in it.

What are your opinions on it? Do you think you could ever make something like it?
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / quickie lunches? on: February 22, 2008 08:21:47 AM
This is my first post on the veggie board, so firstly, hi everyone!

Anyways, I just became vegetarian (last week), and I seem to be having trouble finding veg friendly food in my high school cafeteria (yuck at cafeteria food in general). I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas for quick lunches that I can take to school with me. Preferably something that can be in made in 10-15 minutes, but I'm flexible.

Thanks!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / t-shirt ---> cardigan-type t-shirt on: February 19, 2008 05:42:02 PM
So, I totally stole this idea from this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228308.0. Just thought I'd share my results!

I started out with this 75 cent t-shirt my mom bought during a massive Fourth of July sale at Target:


Snip, snip, sew! Came out with this.


One more action shot.


Sorry about the terrible Myspace-style mirror pictures, but I'm terrible with the self timer on my camera. Enjoy!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / beaded owl! on: January 17, 2008 02:15:41 PM
I wasn't sure which forum to post this in....so I'm just dumping it in with all the clothing recons! Anyways, for my sister's birthday, I updated a plain black shirt by adding a little beaded owl in the bottom right corner. It's not much, but she does love owls (you should see her collection of owl jewelry), and it's cute!



There's the whole shirt. It was just a plain shirt from Target. You can kinda see the owl in the corner all glittery.



And there's the owl itself. Sorry about the blurryness. I uses some green glass beads from Jo Ann's.


This is the little clip art owl I used as my stencil.

Comments/criticism appreciated!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a lazy girl's idea of a bag on: November 20, 2007 04:18:44 PM
Hmm....so I got this idea when I was browsing the Web this weekend.

It looks like a tank top, yes?


Careful, my friends, there is more than meets the eye.


Gasp! Why yes indeed, it holds stuff!


And here's two of it in action!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lumberjack shirt turned sexy! on: July 28, 2007 10:23:47 AM
So, I had this plaid shirt that I bought from the boys section at Target, but whenever I wore it I looked like a lumberjack! I cut off the sleeves and ruched them (is that the right word?) and added a tie at the back and voila! A cute new top.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A jelly bean purse for impractical people who love cute things. on: July 15, 2007 03:08:59 PM
I've been lurking for a few weeks, and just joined the site about ten minutes ago...anyways, I got the most ridiculous idea to make a "purse" out of a jelly bean box. It's rather tiny (which is why it's slightly impractical), but it's just too cute so I had to post it!

I started with a leftover jelly bean tin....

....and a gift bag.

I threaded one of the ribbon handles from the gift bag through these holes.

Then I glued down some old checkered fabric on the inside.

Since it's so small, I'm thinking it could be a change purse, or just a purse for minimalists. Anyways, how did I do for my first time?
