1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Sweet Dreams...I can rest easy tonight on: July 08, 2008 11:19:21 AM
OK so this is my first sewing project that I am VERY proud of.  Please let me know if my head is getting tooo big!!  I wanted to make a new comforter for our bed, I originally made a quilt (no pictures) and that didn't turn out very well but it served it's purpose. 

Now I have a new found love of interior decorating and the rest of my house I'm kinda going for a vintage shabby sorta not dorm room look, but I wanted something serene and relaxing in the bedroom.  So this is what I came up with...keep in mind this is a WIP!!  I still need to put something up on the walls at least.

Here is the comforter

Detail of the embroidery

and everything so far...

Brutal Honesty would be appreciated!!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My "New" Dining Room on: July 07, 2008 10:03:14 AM
OK, so I am not interior decorator and this is my first attempt to make my house look more like a home and less like a dorm room with a bunch of mismatch hand me downs...How did I do?

Brutal Honesty would be greatly appreciated seeing as how visitors to my home will be seeing this as well.

This is what the chairs and table looked like before

and after

Heres the vintage hutch I bought at the flea market for $90.00.  I had to strip it and paint it.  The original finish was UUUUUGGGLLYY!!

Here are my curtains

and everything together

Please let me know if you have any suggestions

Next...the bedroom!!!
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Onsies for my Nephew to be (Lotsa pics) on: March 04, 2008 08:10:50 AM
These are some onsies that I stenciled for my sister who is about to have my first nephew.  I'm soo excited for her.  Please let me know what you think of these.  Some of them seem a bit sloppy to me but the stencils were a pain to cute out and the material onsies are made of is sooooooooo thin they didn't like to be painted.

Onward to the pictures...

Variation of Rock & Roll



4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Bleach stencils for Baby Onsies? on: February 28, 2008 11:18:50 AM
Would it be ok to use bleach stencils on a babyies onsie? Huh  I am making a bunch for my STB nephew...I had one which involved prison stripes but i don't want to do it if it could agitate his skin.
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Bread Machine recipes on: February 27, 2008 10:00:00 AM
OK so I'm new to cooking, my DH usually does it but he may be spending some time overseas soon and I want to be able to take care of myself and one of my favorite things in the world is fresh bread.
Does anyone have some easy recipes for a bread machine...I love sweet breads, white breads and especially zucchini bread.  I appreciate all the help I can get!!!
Thanks all
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My most ambitious project yet!! on: February 15, 2008 10:14:55 AM
I really love the way this turned out.  I made it for a friend of mine's birthday.  I'm trying to do alot more handmade this year and she loves horses and has a mustang convertible...so here is her present.

**This stencil was a pain in the rear to cut out**

**The finished product**

It is not perfect but this is only my third freezer paper stencil and unless you are close you cannot really see the goofs.
I'd love to know what yall think as I am very proud of myself. Grin

Also, sorry if the pictures are blurry I can't really tell I was staring at the stencil for too long cutting it out so my eyes are crossed.
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first time...how'd I do? on: February 13, 2008 06:41:26 AM
I made this for a ten year old's birthday.  He just loves wrestling and especially the "Undertaker".  I think I am going to add his name and like a coffin or something to the front of the shirt.  What do y'all think?

This one I made for my DH for Valentine's Day.  We just love the movie Tombstone, so here is Wyatt Earp and the quote that I love most from the movie.

**front of the shirt**

**back top**

**back bottom*

**back all together**

I think something needs to be added to the Tombstone shirt.  It needs more color!! Any suggestions?
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Please help me make my Valentines Present!! on: February 11, 2008 10:32:25 AM
Please, Please, Please help Cry!!  I need a stencil made out of Kurt Russell from this picture or one similar and cannot find one or figure out how to make one.  If someone could help me I would forever be in your debt.  BTW, this is a valentines present so time is of the essence.  Sorry for not allowing much time, I didn't think this would be so complicated.
Thanks everyone

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Ok...I feel DUMB! on: February 01, 2008 11:22:08 AM
I've been lurking around in here for awhile now and have a question about stenciling but I originally asked my question under the interior decorating thread and was not getting any response.  This is why.

Anyway...I have a HUGE stencil of a tree that I want to paint on my wall but it is printed out on paper and taped together, like the rasturbation pictures.  Can anyone suggest something sturdy I can put behind it and cut out so it will be easier to use.  I have thought of cardbord or posterboard but didn't know if anyone could come up with something else.  I'm antsy to get started.  I'm super impatient.

Thanks and any and all ideas would be appreciated!!
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Rasturbation anyone? on: February 01, 2008 09:02:08 AM
Okay, I have a large rasturbation poster printed out that I am making into a stencil because it is the only way I could make it large enough without spending $$$.  So what do yall think would be the best thing to put behind it so it will be stiff enough to put on the wall to stencil.  I was thinking cardboard boxes or posterboard.  Any suggestions or experience would be appreciated...this is my first stenciling project!!
Thanks all!
