11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / gift ideas for your lover ^_^ (love books, love dice...picture heavy?) on: March 04, 2006 12:11:06 AM
hey guys! i hope you all had a good valentine's. this post may come a little bit late, but maybe these ideas can help for next year or for upcoming anniversaries Smiley

a couple days ago my boyfriend surprised me with sasha goldberger's "the little book of i love you":

it really reminded me of the love books and scrapbooks a lot of crafters make on here. i thought maybe some of you would like to see some of the pages inside. these were my favorites:

caption: "you've got me wrapped around your finger"

caption: "let me cover you with kisses"

caption: "in case you cried" (i'd dry your tears)

(i'm not sure if i'll allowed to post pictures of material that doesn't belong to me, or of something i didn't make myself, so I apologize if i've violated any kind of rules i'm ignorant of  Undecided)

on to my next topic: LOVE DICE
maybe some of you have seen the set of dice with words like "kiss" or "tickle" on one die, and words like "lips" or some other body part on the other. for v-day, i made a set for my boyfriend. it would be a lot easier to buy little wooden or styrofoam blocks to paint and decorate, but i actually made cubes using very stiff cardboard, painted them red, and used pink sticker letters to form the words. they haven't been used, but they were fun to make and give Smiley sorry i don't have any pictures  Sad

if you got through this entire post, thanks for reading! i hope you were inspired in some way  Wink
12  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / opinions about loreal color pulse? on: January 30, 2006 10:48:38 PM
hi guys! i hope some of you guys can help me

i'm assuming you know what i'm talking about, loreal's temporary hair-color mousse (link: http://www.lorealparis.ca/en/haircolor/index_color_pulse.asp), and i was wondering if you have tried it, did you like it?

for some extra information about me, i have really dark brown hair (almost black but not quite). i've been wanting real black hair, but i'm kind of scared of dying it (because of damage, fading, etc), so this temporary thing sounds promising.

i would really appreciate any imput! thanks in advance  Smiley

edit: i just realized that the darkest shade of color pulse is something called "electric night" which looks kind of blue-black. if you have used it, what does it really look like?
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / lumpy the blue bunny on: December 09, 2005 08:32:57 PM
after seeing all the cute plushes made in this section i decided to make one for myself

i used sewing_stars pattern (thank you!): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10382.0

so here's lumpy:

looks a little depressed? i'll make him a girlfriend later  Wink

he's made of a jersey material, one eye is bigger than another, he's lumpy becuz of the stuffing i used, and he's missing a tail. he's not as nice as other rabbits, but i still love him Smiley

oh, he's also a little larger than the original pattern--about 10 inches tall. i enlargened the pattern by 150%

thanks for looking  Cheesy
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sketchbook make-over on: September 26, 2005 12:12:12 AM
i had this sketchbook my brother gave me (he used half of it) and its the kind where the pages tear out. it drove me crazy. i was thinking of a way to keep all the papers togethers, so i decided on brads. i three-whole punched the pages and used big brads to keep them together. some hot glue was involved but i'm feeling too dumb to explain.

i kind of like it. the picture is one of kurt halsey's and i found it cute (i'm sorry for stealing :[). it's appropriate for me too.the cover is kind of messy-looking because i had no idea what i was doing, but i'm just glad that my sketch book isn't losing its pages now Smiley

15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / blue barbie dress on: July 26, 2005 09:35:41 PM
yes, i'm 17 and i still have barbies. i pretend to be an inept seammistress for them sometimes.

it's blue with pleats (that may not be visible in picture), closes in the back with velcro.

she's prettier in person, i have to say...
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / jeans to skirt recon..... with hearts and lace on: July 15, 2005 11:18:00 PM
pair of old old navy jeans... girls pants size 14, awful fit... so i cut them up and sewed them into a skirt. it ended up shorter than i'd planned, but i'm not too leggy so they're about mid-thigh. the lace-ish trim was an after-thought added for a little more length.

it was looking a little plain so i decided to embroider something on there. then i realized i don't know how to embroider, go figure. so i did something that i don't know what to call.

i would've taken a picture of wearing it but there's no one home to help me out.

enough rambling... enjoy?  Smiley
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / i've got sunshine.... :D on: July 07, 2005 06:32:44 PM
my boyfriend calls me his sunshine  Roll Eyes and my mom had this white/yellow lace i wanted to use, so i guess that's my inspiration...?

it was formerly a plain white express shirt that fit okay but i never wore. the sun is yellow and white acrylic with fabric medium, and the lace straps cross in the back, but it's too hard to take a pictue of that (even with the timer)

i like it Smiley yellow makes me happy
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / first projects from "scratch" on: June 19, 2005 08:13:57 PM
these are my first sewing projects that did not involve a reconstruction  Smiley and they actually have zippers! i had previously been frightened of them

this was done on a whim. no pattern, no darts. it fits a little funny around the waistline...

credit is given for this poster's tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29947.0. thanks for such a delightfully simple pattern!

both are made from my mom's old fabric that is at least 10 years old.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / a t-shirt idea...(sorry if it's a little crude...) on: May 28, 2005 02:59:53 PM
i wouldn't do this for myself because my mom wouldn't approve  Roll Eyes... and it has probably already been done but...

i was thinking someone could stencil/iron-on the words "oh shit" onto a shirt, but then put a little carrot/insert symbol between the "i" and "t" to add an "r". then it'd look like a corrected "oh shirt"
oh S H I^T
something roughly like that
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black cord and rhinestone charms on: March 06, 2005 12:19:30 AM
this shouldn't even count as a reconstruction because i didnt even really DO anything but yea.

my materials:
one of those necklace cord things that sometimes come with dresses that connect to hooks on the dress (thats what the two football-shaped loops are)
two rhinestone charms that were supposed to go on a charm bracelet i never got

the charms are connected to spring rings so i just put them on the loops so i got a long black cord with charms on the end. i put it twice around my neck and tied it. voila~
