Hello there! here's my contest entry; shoes inspired by the (finally) blossoming spring! Enjoy!

The stones, moss and twigs are real, the flowers are silk Smiley

Thanks for looking!
12  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Candy Coated [updated-- I wore them somewhere!] on: April 09, 2011 08:07:22 PM
A couple months back, I had the idea to cover an entire pair of shoes in rainbow nonpareils. It took me some time to find the perfect pair of shoes to use (no joke, I spent an hour in the clearance section of Burlington Coat factory trying to find the matching left to the right I managed to find) and an equally long time to find a canister of rainbow nonpareils big enough for the job. turns out, I didn't actually use that many. I wish I had a camera aside from my phone to catch the glossiness of the shoes and the really sharp contrast between the colours and the black of the heels.

Tada! I added the lace detail to rid my feet of toe cleavage. I hate toe cleavage.

Here is a before and in progress shot:

I really loved these shoes on their own. They just so happen to be BCBG (a brand I would never imagine myself seeking out), they're cute, and they are COMFORTABLE. I might go back and get another pair (if I can find another pair at all, never mind in my size) to keep black.

The much requested ACTION SHOT

After Halloween, I picked up quite a few jars of black and orange nonpareils for about $0.60ea and I plan to make these shoes again: Halloween edition

Thanks for looking! Cheesy
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Drawstring Tote on: January 21, 2011 08:34:50 PM
Inspired by a purse I had seen (and wisted!) on etsy. Can be seen here

I've never made a bag before and I figured this wouldn't be too difficult to figure out. It wasn't, but mine also doesn't look as awesome. I'm happy with the result though. Smiley

The lining is a twin bedsheet I used to have. I feel like I use it in every project and I STILL have some left.

It comes complete with Eric Carle's very hungry caterpillar and some stacking cups!

Thanks for looking! Smiley
14  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Plain shoe and ugly jewelry? No longer! on: January 20, 2011 06:52:45 PM
I had recently bought a pair of what I thought were super adorable shoes. That was, until I brought them home and realized they were really plain. So there they sat until I could find suitable adornments. Who would have thought they would have been $2.99 pieces of jewelry!

I can't wait to wear these!

They were sort of cute on their own, but on my feet, looked pretty bland.

Terribly made cheap scenester jewels in a color that doesn't flatter me, but goes great with plum!

Toe view

Outside view

Back view. Hey bird, what's up? Hope you don't fall off.

Inside view. I really liked the key charm, but had NO idea where to put it, so I put it in a secret place?

Thanks so much for looking! Smiley
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Happy Sushi mini plushies on: January 19, 2011 07:57:04 PM
A woman I used to work with asked me if I could make her mini sushi plushies. I've never done so myself, and not being all that familiar with sushi, I took inspiration from all different plushies/actual sushi and went to town. I think these little guys are cute; I hope she is happy with them!

They took about three days to complete, as they are 100% hand sewn (I'm not good at working on small scales so I didn't dare use my machine) and I have a 5 month old baby that occupies quite a bit of my time.

Please don't mind the computer; my crafting table is black and they sort of... blended in  Tongue

Their happy little faces Smiley

The tops (and bottoms!) Doesn't look very edible, does it? Tongue

Thanks for looking! Smiley
16  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / New from Rhode Island on: January 13, 2011 10:40:07 AM
Hello craftsters! I've had my account for a while, just lurking around and such. I am pretty new to crafting. It used to be a hobby that I didn't have time for, but now that I'm a stay at home mom, I get to test out all sorts of new projects all the time. Smiley

I mostly stick with sewing (my mother knits like a monster but I have no patience for that), and I REALLY hope to get my quilting skills up to par soon. More than anything I am interested in swaps because I love to meet new people and see everyone else's creativity.

Happy Crafting. <3
17  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Ultrasound Wall Art on: January 11, 2011 12:37:14 PM
This project was inspired by a photo frame that I had seen at Babies 'R' Us and a piece of Wall Art that I had seen at Target. Both pieces were out of my budget for design and decorating, so I took the liberty of making my own. Smiley

I made it back in March while I was still pregnant and nearly a year later I finally got around to taking pictures of it. (please excuse the glue smear!)

Hanging up in the Living Room -- I didn't realized how crooked it was until I took pictures haha

You can't tell much from this photo, but the black part comes out about two inches from the printed board. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of that.

Just stickers on cardstock on cardstock on cardstock

Thanks for looking! Smiley
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Grown ups need piggy banks too on: January 07, 2011 02:05:38 PM
My girlfriends and I paint ceramics (for me that's a break from other crafting haha) and I had recently just painted a piggy bank for my 4 month old son. As I was painting I was thinking about how nice it would be to get pedicures this spring and summer. Then I thought about how I should recon a jar of some sorts of save money in. Since we put all our spare change in his bank, I decided to save all my singles and I would need something that could (hopefully) hold a lot!

At first I was thinking a yankee candle jar since I have a few candles near the end of their time, and then I came across a spaghetti container my mom had given me and I was inspired!

I'm pretty sure this is older than I am.

I took some fun fabric scraps, yarn (to make the bottom soft), glue, and acrylic paint..

And boom. Mommy has her own piggy bank! (and a nice piece of decor) The whole project took maybe 20 minutes. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
