31  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / I Need Help! Katherine Von Bora Luther Costume?? Pattern lookalikes? on: August 18, 2009 06:37:58 AM
True to my impetuous self, I have agreed to be Katherine Von Bora Luther for my church's Reformation Day at the end of October. I have to dress up. SO. I've only really found one picture of her that shows what sort of clothing she wore...

I might could get sorta close to that...but for this I would -really- like to have some sort of pattern. Its the neckpiece/collar that is sorta freaking me out...any help or anything would be seriously appreciated! Thank you!
32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / ^.^ Altoid Tin Book!!! A 50 reasons for my momsie! =Picture Morbidly OBESE= on: July 06, 2009 12:19:17 AM
SO! My mom has done a whole lot for my three brothers and me over the years and I just wanted to make her something to show my appreciation about 17 years late...
I had seen https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=226651.0 and super uber LUFFED the idea of a little '52 reasons book' and then I saw https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295554.0 and super uber luffed it also. SO! I decided to sorta mesh the two ideas and made a '50 Reasons I Love Mom' book and decorated an altoids tin for it to go in.

+ The front of the altoid tin +

(and the green ribbon sticking out form the side is not just random, it is attached to the inside bottom of the tin and you pull up on it and it lifts the book out)
+ The back, just because I have issues leaving bare spaces +

+ The tin open (I was blondeeeeee Tongue) +

+ The book!! +

+ The book opened up (I am rather fond of the plaid paper!!) +

+ Some of my favorite random pages +

lol Our van, and we have a running joke with my mom about how she doesnt like taking us places all the time. (We are ridiculously busy teenagers ^.^)

My DADDD!!! I am thinking about making him a book too, just..more..manish..
((Sorry about the bad picture quality. My camera and I arent on very good speaking terms right now.))

I was rather insanely proud of the cards!!! And spit! is the best card game EVER that my mom taught me Smiley

*gigglesnort* yes.she doessometimes she will cringe when I ask her to come look at something lol


I do not know why this one came out yellow?? If my camera and I were speaking, Id ask it. BUT!

You assuring me that the random bumps and rashes I got growing up werent cancer even though I thought they were
Easily my favorite lol I was a spastic child who would jump out of the shower after discovering a new freckle and demand my mother pronounce it benignlol

I wish I could post all fifty!!! I want to make another one of these, it was very addictive, I must say. I spent about three days on it, staying up until freakish hours of the morning, because I am one of those instant craft gratification people who need to see the finished product NOW. ^.^

And just because I was highly impressed with the mess I mademy room while I was doing this;

My mom walked by one time while my door was open and was like Wowyou are going to clean this up, correct? lol yes mom ^.^

Okay see the vent underneath the window? That was where I was sitting. lol and five hours of sitting on a vent tends to make ones rear end very chilly ^.^

Please comment!! YAY!
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Elvish-esque (maybe) wire/bead necklace! -pics- on: June 22, 2009 08:48:49 AM

OKAY! This is my first posted project! (I think so, anyway; I forgot I had this account until recently..yes, I'm a goober) I was up rather late a few nights ago playing with a new spool of craft wire I had gotten and somewhere along the way this came out of the many, many, mangled attempts at something wearable.

I basically just took several pieces of 24 ga wire and threaded them in and out of each other in no particular pattern, sliding beads on every now and then. I really liked how it came out, and I thought it looked sorta elvish/Rivendell-esque from LOTR. *fan girl squeal*

The clasp is on the front, which I don't really like and will probably end up changing... I apologize for the wonky pictures; my camera and I have a love/hate relationship at the best of times

Poor quality, but it shows the dangly bead there.

Please comment, I'm completely new at working with wire and I'd love feedback Smiley THANKS!
