21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Playin with camera - Orchids and my dog ;) on: August 01, 2008 02:54:13 PM
I cant say I'm that good at taking photos - but I thought these came out great Smiley My dog, Sully was such a good sport for amusing me, lol. Enjoy.

He got silly and wanted to stare at me as he yawned, lol

And some orchids from the yard

22  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Hair Inhibitor? What stops/helps ingrown hairs? on: July 30, 2008 08:42:05 AM
I know this may sound like a weird question, but I'm starting to get desperate. Are there any natural or even unnatural hair inhibitor lotions or something I can add to a lotion? I shave my legs about 3 times a week and as if my stretchmark covered thiehs didnt hate me enough - now I'm getting little ingrown hairs. The area gets red and about the size of a quarter, hurts to say the least and looks GREAT in a swimsuit, lmao. Is there anything that could help? I'm only 24 and my poor legs are very unhappy with me, lol.
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Starting to remodel my bedroom :) on: June 23, 2008 06:35:50 PM
So far so good. My room is long and narrow - narrower at one end then it is at the other. I switched my bed and computer area around and also painted the yellow walls this awesome aqua color (its a bit darker/brighter then how it comes out in the pics, they make it look almost baby blue for some reason). I'm debating painting one more wall in the aqua, the wall my closet is on - what do you think?



24  COOKING / Dessert / INSTANT Ice Cream!!! Low Carb/Low Sugar/Natural on: June 10, 2008 10:00:48 AM
For anyone following a low carb or low sugar diet I found the perfect ice cream recipe. I'm sure most of you noticed that since the whole low carb craze went out a few years ago it's been impossible to find any new and yummy sweet treats. Well, for this ice cream - that takes less then 2 minutes to make - the possibilities are endless. All you need is:

1 cup frozen fruit (I used blueberries) - maybe other things can be frozen and used, havent experimented yet though

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tsp lemon or lime juice

4 packets/4 tsp sweetner of your choice - I used Splenda

Put all ingredients into a food processor and chop away. Within a few seconds everything comes together in a wonderful creamy goodness. Its consistancy is between an ice cream and a sherbert - closer to ice cream. Its SO yummy!!!! And if anyone else makes this - PLEASE post what you used, I'm freezing everything to try to make new blends, lol. BTW blueberries with sliced frozen bananas was amazing, lol.

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / "Theft Proof" Box Cutter on: June 02, 2008 05:18:19 AM
I work in the parts, shipping, and receiving departments of a motorcycle dealer. The shop orders box cutters, but they're the cheap kind that are just a pain to use. For the last year or so I have been buying my own, bigger and easier to use. Somehow or another, my blades tend to grow legs and run away never to be seen again. This happend last week so I knew I had to do something to fix the issue. Asking nicely for people to put my things back when they're done just didnt seem to be working. I am the only girl in the department so I thought - "I'm making a girly blade!" No one has asked to borrow it now lol Smiley

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First recon - first time using sewing machine on: May 02, 2008 06:15:38 PM
Well, inspired by the wonderful members of Craftster, I broke down and purchased my first sewing machine. I had shirt that I loved the print of, but for some reason the sleeves were HUGE and always fell down. Knowing this could be a halter if I messed up, I decided to try to make it into a halter. I cut off part of the sleeves and reused them to make a halter style top. My stitching is far from straight, but I did it Smiley As long as they hold I'll be happy haha.

And a shot of my crappy stitching, lol
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jewelry Hanger for my bedroom wall - Pic heavy w/ Tut on: April 26, 2008 07:28:52 PM
Well, long story short: I have a small jewelry box with quite a few necklaces that tend to get tangled. I've been wanting to create some sort of display for them for a wall behind my bedroom door. Today was the day, and all for about $10! Smiley

Materials used:
2 project display boards from Big Lots ($4)
Fabric from the remnant bin at Wal-Mart ($1)
2 rolls ribbon ($1)
Small cup hooks ($4)
Staple gun

I taped the two project boards together, just to keep them even. Be sure to put the open side of the boards together.

Using a staple gun, attach the fabric to the cardboard.

Close-up of the fabric just because I thought it was awesome Smiley Its brighter then it looks in the pic

After attaching the fabric I marked the back of the board every 4 inches around the edges. I then stapled the ribbon to each of the marks and eventually came out with the crisscross look. The sections arent as even as I had hoped for, but they still turned out alright Smiley After the ribbon is in place, use a nail to poke a hole through the fabric and ribbon, then screw in your cup hook whereever you want it. Add a picture hanger to the back and you're done! I know the left side of my board is a bit empty, I ran out of cup hooks, lol - will be fixed tomorrow Smiley

Finished product
28  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / My bedroom needs a change! Help! UPDATED PICS Pg 2 on: March 27, 2008 06:39:47 AM
Well, I love my room, but I'm really needing to change it up a little. It's looked the same for about the last 4 years, lol. I definately need something more, lol. My room is long and narrow so as far as I know, the furniture really cant move around too much I dont think. I am planning on removing the little shelves by my computer desk and possibly removing the white table with lamp next to my dresser. I love that table so I wont be getting rid of it, just moving it to the attic most likely, lol. Dont mind the sewing machine - its new and lets just say its not being cooperative, lol. Anyway, I'd like to keep the yellow walls, but I've also been thinking of painting them something different - ahh I'm so confused, lol. As you can tell I love bright colors and 4wheeling, lol. Below are a bunch of pics - I was trying to be sure you could tell how the room is layed out. I'd love to hear any suggestions.

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / For my Valentine... Pic Heavy on: February 13, 2008 06:18:42 AM
My Valentine and I have only been together a couple of months, so I didnt want to go to overboard or get too lovey-dovey. I like what I have done so far, but it doesnt really feel complete. I think I may add some of those Naughty Coupons or something, maybe a set of fuzzy handcuffs, lmao.

Rubiks Cube with pics of him, me, and us together

A box that says "In this box is the best Valentine ever!" Inside is a mirror so when he looks inside he sees himself Smiley

A chinese takeout style box with the saying "For all the times you need a kiss and I'm not there to give you one". Inside are Hershey kisses that I replaced the little paper flag with my own sayings.

All together...
