321  Trinket shelves simple upgrade in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Acadian Driftwood on: March 16, 2013 06:45:29 PM

No before pictures, because I started this project... ummm... two years ago? I got distracted OK! Anyway, these were basic raw wood shelves. Spray painted white, then cut out papers to fit each size shelf. I really like the result!

I used as many different languages as I had, and mod podged them down.

Do you see where it says "pooped?" Teeeeehehehehe. I am 12.

I love my tiny things.

322  Yoga pant style tights in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Acadian Driftwood on: February 24, 2013 06:06:51 PM
Tights and leggings with elastic tops are kind of the worst, right? I had this great pair of wool tights I liked to wear with skirts in the colder weather, but the waistband was just one thick strip of elastic. It was difficult to style it in a flattering way because of how it cut into my middle; you probably know how it goes!

Well it was a very easy fix! I used the bottom strip of a t-shirt and serged it onto the waistband after I cut off the elastic.

The seam is on the outside so that it's hidden when the top is folded down, and it's comfortable inside.

Here's how it looks when worn with a skirt! I usually fold the top over like this, it helps hold the tights up since the elastic's not doing the job.

Hope you like the idea! Cheesy

Continuing adventures with the food processor: hummus edition!

Delicious. So tasty. Omnomnom.

Glanced at online recipes and winged it - based mostly off of this one though. Changes: doubled the garlic, added handful of chopped parsley, and Sriracha to taste. The thing about this recipe is that you can keep tasting it until it's perfect, adding more and more things. Next time I'm adding basil and roasted red peppers.

324  Tin can pencil holder - easy project in Valentine's Day by Acadian Driftwood on: January 31, 2013 02:15:16 PM

I actually gave this to my Grandmother for Christmas, but it seems more Valentine-y to me. She needed something to corral all her pencils and things on her desk, and I went with a crafty theme. She used to do a lot of sewing, and gave me her old fabric when she stopped. I used some of it on this project because I thought she'd like a little reminder of that side of herself.

This was a very simple project, and would probably be great to do with kids! First, I measured out a square of fabric that could wrap around a clean tin can, with about a half inch to spare on the top and bottom. I drew some glue lines on the can, and wrapped the fabric around.

Then I drew a glue line around the inside lip of the can and pressed the extra fabric down. I did the same on the bottom, and then glued on a circle of cardstock with my name and the date on it so it would look finished.

I covered the seam of the fabric with some measuring tape, and continued embellishing with some vintage lace and white buttons.

That clear button on the bottom of the heart is driving me a little bit crazy! I wished I'd used a solid white. Ever give something away and then wish you could change it?

I've been eyeing this cookalong, and I'm jumping in tonight with this falafel recipe.

It was my first time making falafel, and it was seriously yummy. I'm most certainly making it again! Pretty easy too, and took less than an hour. Plus I got to play with my new food processor. Smiley

Rating from the meat-eating boyfriend: "Delicious!"

I made this for a friend of mine for her birthday! The pattern is something I made up, just little appliqued scraps, but I really like how it turned out.

And the back:

Thanks for checking it out!

328  I could have had my own hoopla wall by now... in Needlework: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: April 11, 2011 05:49:29 PM
... but instead, I keep giving them to my swap partners! Here are some embroideries I've given that wanted their own topic. Smiley

This is where I learned the long and short stitch!

This is a quote from the TV show Coupling:

I really enjoy working on a lightly patterned cloth like this one.

Spike ended up in a frame, not in a hoop.

This last one was a copy of a wisted piece:

*whew* I just wanted to get these pieces out there! Thanks for looking. Smiley
