1  Old coke machine to new computer cabinet! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DogGrrl on: August 13, 2008 07:36:52 AM
To compliment my new dining room mural I bought an old unworking coke machine, gutted it and then sent it to a friend to weld some shelves onto it. Tada! Here is my new new computer cabinet!  The Pepsi and Coke picnic coolers I am using to house my files/office stuff. 



Thanks for looking!

2  My new "diner" room - super sized pic heavy!!! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: August 08, 2008 10:58:18 PM
I have a fascination with all things retro and I LOVE old diners.  So, after years of talking about it, I finally made my dining room into an old diner! 

First an apology!  The layouts of the rooms make it hard to photograph so sorry - there are lots of photos!!!

I have a dining room with a sun room/atrium attached.  The view is from the left of the sun room and clockwise through the dining room.  I wanted the sun room to be the parking lot and the dining room to be, well, the diner! 

An old coke machine will soon replace the ugly computer cabinet.  I bought an old coke machine (1950s) that didnt work and am having the back cut out and shelves installed to house my computer - I wanted to do it myself but unfortunately welding is beyond my ability  Embarrassed.

I was so excited and happy with the results I couldnt wait to show you my dining room so the coke machine/computer cabinet will have to be another post!!!
This has been years in the making so comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!!!
Thanks for looking!!!!

3  Onsies - super duper image heavy in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: July 13, 2008 10:01:37 AM
Hi all! So, inspired by another post on Craftster, which I now cannot find for the life of me so I'm unable to give proper credit  Embarrassed I dyed and silk screened some onsies for a friend.  I kept finding all of these great images so I kind of went overboard!

On to the pics!

The butt!

The images aren't really blurred - that is due to my less than stellar camera skills! Thanks sooooo much for looking!!

Okay, here is my mess! I am so overwhelmed I don't know where to begin!

It's awful - I was in a personal swap and I finished her package (a sublimated mug) but I haven't sent it because I can't find the blasted thing in all of this mess!

5  Sublimation mugs! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: April 22, 2008 06:36:29 AM
So I finally broke down and bought a heat press  Roll Eyes.  I bought a combo press so not only could I do heat transfers I could also do sublimation.  Sublimation, as I understand it anyway, is a process that when used with sublimation inks and a specially coated blank, when heated the ink turns into a gas and penetrates the surface of the blank.  The result is that the image is in the blank, not just resting on top (like a waterslide decal).  My sister asked me to make her some mugs with some pictures and artwork she had so I scanned them in and heat pressed them.  All of these mugs have been through the dishwasher without any loss of the images!

On with the pictures!

This is a note that my niece made when she was really mad at my brother in law and left it for him to find on his pillow!  It cracked me up!

This is a picture my other niece drew:

This is a picture of my niece with a box on her head:

And this one is from a picture my sister took of a sign (I know it looks like it was bought in a souvenir shop but I swear it wasn't!  Cheesy):

Thanks for looking!

6  I Pity the Fool! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: April 12, 2008 04:27:25 PM
Using msgates' tutorial here:


I reconned a baby onsie into a tee for my newest fur kid.  I had previously dyed it bright blue but it still looked a little boring so I silk screened Mr. T onto it!

Everytime I see Dewey wearing it I crack up!

7  Christmas client presents FINALLY finished! Super Duper Image Heavy! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: December 20, 2007 11:26:31 PM
I own a little doggie daycare and some of you may remember the dog bags I gave to clients last year.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=142326.msg1399415#msg1399415

This year I decided to do etched cookie jars with each dog's name on them (all I can say is this project totally justified buying the Klic N Kut!!!!!) 

In the cookie jar was a homemade dog cookie mix with recipe, cookie cutters, a silk screened apron, a squeaky snowman toy, cinnamon sugared pecans and a sewn bandanna.  In addition each client got a bottle of wine with their dogs picture on it and the label on the wine this year said, "Fido's 2007 Private Reserve Pinot More".  I am FINALLY finished and the last 10 presents go out tomorrow. 

Maybe now I can decorate my tree and do some shopping!

The whole package:

The wine:

Crappy close up of etching

Outside of tag (same image was used on both the gift and the recipe tag)

My sweatshop garage!

I ended up making 83 of these!  Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much you guys!  I really appreciate the feedback!!!

It was a really fun project.  I came up with the design and my friend just ran with it - how lucky am I???!!!!!

I wish you could see the dog puns on the books more clearly - it took me, two friends and several bottles of wine to come up with all of the titles, my favorites are:

Gone with the Woof by Margaret Muttchell

Learn Spaniel!

The Complete Works of St. Bernard Shaw

Frankie has two Daddies (for one of my favorite clients who happens to be gay)



The only thing else I am going to do is some more graffiti in the bathroom and a lunch lady which will be a dog about 5 feet tall with a hair net, a spatula, apron and glasses.  I am planning on putting her here (on the back wall under the clock):

Here are a couple of more images of storage and collectables:

Once again, thanks so much for looking - you completely made my day! Thanks!

My doggie daycare room is finally finished! Yay!  I was going for a classroom theme.  I must admit however, a very talented friend did most of the painting.  I LOVE how it turned out!

First the main mural:

Detail of dog writing on chalkboard:

Books painted on wall (they each have a doggie pun such as "Of Mutts and Men by John Steinbark"!)

Wall with bookshelves

My Dogs LOVE this!  I have to use a really big mold because I run a doggie daycare for little dogs.  I usually use vanilla yogurt mixed with water and then drop in whatever treats I have on hand.  In this pic I used chopped up natural balance and chicken strips.  Yogurt is actually really good for dogs - it helps with digestion and eliminates gas (which is a huge plus!  Cheesy)!
