1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Party Shirts (*pic and story heavy*) on: November 09, 2008 09:35:53 PM
So my boyfriend and I go to/throw a lot of theme parties. The problem is that my boyfriend is very into dressing up- but can only handle the low matinentce of a t-shirt. He reminds me of a dog, sometimes you can get cloths on them, but if you try to get too fancy with extras, they'll just bite them off... He's the same way, but doesn't bite as much.  Wink
This means that I make a lot of random t-shirts for him. Here are four that I've one for in in the past:

The crab shirt:

We went to an under the sea party and he wanted to go as crabs. Which was fun because he got to run around grabbing onto people then telling them how they have crabs too!

The peace shirt:

This was for a Hippy party, it was the first shirt I made for him and it's pretty worn out now.


For my birthday last year I through a fairy tale party. I went as Belle and the boy went as Cogsworth. Sadly, I was forced to do this like twenty minutes before the party itself, so it's not the best, but it gets the point across.


For this past Halloween the boy decided that what he really wanted to be was sperm. So I made him this shirt and he wore white pants and a silly hat... With this one he got to poke people and tell them they were pregnant.

Anyway, for most all of them I used black fabric paint and a brush and/or spray fabric paint. It's pretty easy and fun and people tend to like his costumes!

Please tell me what you think and sorry if some of it's too adult!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My boyfriend made a table, I painted it! *pic heavy* on: August 10, 2008 05:42:11 PM
As the subject says, my boyfriend made me a table! I needed a desk, so he made me one- we're just too darn cute! Anyway- he got all the wood from Home Depot, did all the cutting and what not in a wood shop on his base (Go Navy) and then left the finished project for me.

Table with out paint job:

I just used about three coats of a wood primer, and then freehand outlined shapes and whatnot for decorative painting. After that I started my MANY coats of acrylic paint... a big pain in the but.

After the main painting and decorative finishes I just used a spray paint sealer and there we are! A new colorful table for my living room- neat space for crafting and studies!

thanks for looking- comments and criticisms welcome!
... sorry for all the pictures, I'm really excited about the way things came out!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tokidoki shark on: June 09, 2008 09:01:53 PM
I was super bored today and thought I'm practice a little bit of needlework. I have a very cheap potato cloth from the dollar tree that I've been trying random things on and today I made a shark I REALLY like... but now I don't know what to do with it. Anyway, it's not the best because I'm pretty new to this, but I think it cute!

Dun-nuh....duh-nuh....duh-nuh (CUTE SHARK!!!)

(the pin at the bottom is the org. picture, an awesome Tokidoki sharky)

Let me know what you think!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mother's day gift *F-bomb warning* on: June 09, 2008 08:53:24 PM
So I was low on cash but wanted to do something fun for my mommy for Mother's day, so I thought I'd make her a little bit of cross stitchin' action! We get along great and I knew that although it was my first attempt at this since I was seven, she would enjoy it no matter what! (kind of like a 5 year old making a bunch of skribbles and it being hung as a work of art Wink)

but...there are:

so here it is:

I did my best! And It took me forever. I got the idea from all the sassy stitch things, but made up the saying and "pattern"...not that it's really a pattern.  Cheesy

Anywho! Tell me what ya think!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Painted scrap book on: April 30, 2008 06:37:38 PM
I made this for the LV swap. It's not due for a bit but I found the book on sale for $5.00 at target and couldn't pass up the cheapness! My little friend is of French decent but came from New York... so I painted the light blue book with red paint to give it that 'French' look.

The taping:

The drying:

The completed product!:

The 'H' is for Hammy!
I hope this is the right place, I always get so confused... Anywho- tell me what you think!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / *wonkey scarf* (first scarf and it looks it!) on: April 06, 2008 11:29:46 PM
So about a year ago when my boy-oh was over seas I thought it would be cute if I learned to knit (cute because I made a lot of jokes about what I'd do when he was gone and "knit alone in the dark" was on the top of my list Wink) so I started a scarf!

It wasn't looking too hot and I never got myself to sit and do it so it was all over the place, but i the last two days at work I finally finished it!

The wonk:

The left side is the super beginner area and the right side is the... hey I'm slightly better area. (really?!?!?! I thought you've been doing this for YEARS!)

Me action shot:

the boy-oh (not as excited as I was):

Alright, there that is. Hope you enjoyed it and I also hope maybe it gave you a little giggle, I know I'm gigglen'! Cheesy

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Sad Kitty Pillow Monster on: April 02, 2008 02:21:42 AM
I was bored tonight and was thinking about the LV swap, which would be my first one, and thought I'd make a little friend to send out.

The only problem is, I don't think she's strong enough to handle a swap, but that's ok! She was fun and simple to make.




Clearly not the best made but also clearly pissed about something, so I think it all works out!

*comments welcome!*
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Domo Ipod Cozy... That's right, ANOTHER ONE! on: March 30, 2008 11:26:45 PM
Sooo. I've seen like 20,000 of these and I wanted to make one for my brother out in Iraq! I have no idea if he needs one (I know he has an Ipod, but does he need it to be cozy? Who knows?!?) but I do know that he likes silly things with faces, so I think this will work out for him.

I know his eyes should just be black lil' dots... but I was sleepy at the time, and it was my first time really working with felt, so at least I have that!

***I welcome comments and criticism!***
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Teal Duct Tape Wallet (first try) on: March 25, 2008 09:15:48 PM
I had some teal duct tape, so I thought... why not try and make a wallet? So I did, and this is what I came up with:



(I used duct tape and a hair tie.)

It's not the best, but cards and money fit...so there's that!

If anyone actually make these as a hobby and you have some tips I'd be more then happy to hear them!
