21  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / So, this is what happens when you mix boredom and old textbooks. ;) on: January 11, 2010 11:36:18 AM
I was bored last week and made these journals. Both are made from old textbooks someone threw in the recycle bin at school.

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / So. I combined some of my favorite things and got... on: January 11, 2010 11:14:33 AM
This purse! Cheesy I had some owl fabric I got at Wal-Mart last summer, a pair of jeans I really loved (of course the zipper broke.. Cry ), an owl necklace that I put on a keyring, and and old belt that I wore so much that it wore out just sitting around so I thought, "Why not make a sweet purse for school with these things?", so I did. Wink I'm in love with it and thought I'd share it with others here. So here goes.

23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / This used to be a peanut butter jar... on: December 14, 2009 01:39:04 PM
But now it's a mint/other small candy holder! I got this idea when I was at my grandma's house and I saw that she was using a clean empty peanut butter jar to hold candy. So I took a peanut butter jar and decorated it. Wink I didn't keep this one, it was a Christmas gift for a friend of mine.


Action shot:

I can write up a tutorial for these if anyone is interested. Wink

And I decided to make myself a notebook out of an old cereal box, cute paper, and random quotes and pictures.

I also made this one earlier this year. I just took a textbook, gutted it, covered it in green fabric and then put striped paper on the front and back covers. Then I cut butterflies out of some other paper I had and decoupaged them on.  Grin

The book:

Enjoy!  Wink

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Japanese Beetles? on: June 29, 2009 08:58:15 PM
Okay, we are having a Japanese beetle problem. They are all over the asters and the rose of Sharon bushes in our garden, and I was wondering how else to get rid of them. My mum tried spraying her bushes with a spray made with mouthwash, soap, and tobacco juice, but it doesn't seem to be working. She doesn't want to buy the chemical that kills them because she doesn't want to kill the birds or butterflies. We aren't sure what else to do. Right now we are going outside twice a day and knocking them into containers of soapy water. I was wondering if anyone else here was having issues with them. They seem to be really bad.
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Readers' Digest Book=My New Journal <3 on: June 22, 2009 12:31:50 AM
So I made this cool book over the weekend. I began with an old Readers' Digest book and gutted it. Then I spent the majority of the weekend splatterpainting the pages. It took quite a while but it looks so amazing. <3

27  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Look what I did in Photoshop! on: May 08, 2009 10:51:41 PM
This was a picture of some black eyed susans I edited on Photobucket.  Cheesy

28  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / So, I made my folders for school look awesome. on: August 17, 2008 10:06:19 AM
I made my school folders look cool this year. I drew sunflower pictures and glued them on with Mod Podge. Then I took clear heavy duty packing tape and taped them up so they would last longer. Enjoy! Cheesy

All three of them together.

29  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Soup can to cute pencil holder. on: July 03, 2008 03:43:20 PM
I made this adorable pencil holder from a steel soup can. All I did was spray paint it gold and then glue cute trim on it. Sorry the picture is sideways...too fat.
Tongue Darn Photobucket and their silliness.. Wink

Okay, after like 75 tries, the picture is finally acceptable.. Wink
