1  PostSecret Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by justagirl on: September 17, 2007 08:29:44 AM

"I feel so alone."

"I can sit around and watch horses for hours & hours and not get bored. The barn is the one place where I am truly happy. I spend more time there than w/ my family."
and the sticker quote says "The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears"

"I wish life was a musical!"

the back "life would be so much more fun! - mystery swapper"

I cannot describe the feeling I had when I pulled my first secret out of my mailbox (my first piece of mail in that mailbox!). Thank you all for sharing your secrets with me.

3  CD tower in Completed Projects by justagirl on: December 18, 2006 12:27:36 PM
I bought a plain CD tower thing at TJ Maxx for six bucks. The paint was chipping in some places (plus nothing else in my room is plain!) so I decided to spruce it up a bit.

I stenciled headphones on one side.

I'm a huge No Doubt fan, so I cut pictures of the band out from the Rock Steady album booklet, painted this side black, and wrote the band member's names.

Then I doodled on the shelves!

4  Swavroski/guitar pick earrings & found necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by justagirl on: December 18, 2006 12:18:59 PM

Made these for a friend for Christmas. Two guitar picks, some sterling silver wire, and Swavroski crystals.

I can't decide how I feel about this. I had two random lengths of chain lying around, a small toggle clasp, some beads from the $1 section of Target, and a Jarritos bottle cap. This is my first time making anything with bottle caps, so I just was sort of really bootleg and squashed it under my foot until it was flat.

Close-up of the beads and bottle cap.

I bought some plain black cloth shoes for 4 bucks and made them cuter.
I painted on little white leotards, and sewed on tulle tutus and little gold hangers

they say "bubbly toes"

7  Necktie dress (+ skirt) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by justagirl on: December 17, 2006 02:08:51 PM

I made a dress out of men's neckties and I'm kind of in love with it. I'm on the left.

My favorite tie is the manatee one

**Edit: my aunt wanted me to send her some pics so I took a few more. I don't have any more action shots right now (they're all on my friend's camera). Also added a few pictures of the necktie skirt I made last year that inspired the dress.

First of all, I'd just like to say: GORGEOUS ! I mean it, evey single one of your tattoos blew my mind (apparently since I just looked through every single page of this thread in one sitting!)

I've wanted a tattoo for as long as I can remember, and it was during a solo hike in the Costa Rican rainforest when I was 14 that I realized there was one picture I want on my body forever : in the center of my back. I'm hoping to get inked on my eigtheenth in April.

Now some questions:
1. That picture is in black and white, but I like the color version better. However, I've heard color tattoos can fade quickly and if the option of black and white exists, it is better to go with balck and white. Is this true?
2. How badly does the spine hurt, really?
3. Any recommendations for artists in the Boston area?
4. I'm young, and I know that I might want to have kids someday. Would a tattoo in the middle of my back stretch?

Sorry if these are dumb questions, but I don't know anybody with a tattoo to ask, plus I know Craftser ROCKS!

So I have been on a jewellery frenzy as of late. However, I have no luck selling any of this is craft fairs. Anyone know any tips to selling? Also, maybe my pricing is messed up (I'm awful with stuff like that). Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks !

2. Amethyst chips, shells, + Sterling silver

3. Amethyst + gold-filled

4. Some stone I forget the name of + 14K gold

6. My favorite thing I've made. Sterling silver + 6+8mm Swavroski crystals

7. Lapis + Sterling silver
