1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Painted countertops on: June 02, 2010 10:14:07 AM
I saw a thread on here about a year ago about a girl who painted her ugly pink countertops to something that looked more expensive here.  I hated my builder's special green laminate countertops but didn't have the cash to buy new or better ones, so I challenged myself to redo the ones I had for under $100.

With a $100 Lowe's gift card in hand, I did just that.  I came in at $90.

For more in-depth information on how I did it and other useless information, click over to my site.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Swank diaper bag on: July 24, 2009 08:54:50 AM
I have an internet friend who is pregnant and didn't want to spend a lot of money on baby stuff (I think money is tight with everyone).  I figured I'd help her out and give her something that I could practice on but that she could use for awhile.  Here's her new diaper bag.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Corduroy circle skirt for roller derby on: July 22, 2009 08:18:45 AM

Outtake from the "how derby works" program we use at bouts.

A couple of months ago I was needing more clothes for roller derby.  It gets really old wearing the same athletic gear skirt that everyone else has, and I had some spare cord material laying around.  It didn't really take that long to make thankfully because between my photography and full time jobs, derby, crafting and life, I don't have much time in the day.  I was pretty pleased that not only does it work well with derby, it works well with my every day style of clothes as well.

Trial fitting with my ref shirt.

With other normal people clothes.

I may have to try something like this in a mini.  I've found that the style with cord fabric is just a bit unruly during bouts while I'm trying to avoid getting smacked into.  Practices it seems to be ok though.

Criticisms and advice please.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Dark Tower Laptop Bag on: October 03, 2008 09:05:48 AM
My brother started up college again this past semester and he was tired of using a backpack to carry around his laptop and books on campus.  So being the wonderful sister than I am, I put together a laptop/messenger bag for him.  He claimed to want it huge, so I made it huge.

That would be the Eye of the Crimson King on the front there.  Apologies for the mismatched cameras I used.  I forgot to photograph the inside of the bag when I finished it during the day.  Cloud wanted to help though.

The bag is fully padded, including the red laptop pouch and the shoulder strip/pad.  It has those plastic clasps on the strap and on the top flap.  There are pockets on the back and inside.  The outside fabric is outdoor furniture, so it has that leathery waterproof feeling on the inside, and the red pouch is red and black duck cloth.  The Eye is red vinyl.

Enjoy, it was my first messenger style bag.
