Ok, it took me forever to get photos up because photo hosting seems to hate me, but here is my awesome package.

A Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock tote bag, which I adore

A caffeine mug, which no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get a good picture of

a fabulous pinup desk calendar which she wrote science dates in, a few days before I got the package I looked a a planner by the same artist, and almost bought it

a pearl bracelet and business card holder

two cute flower hair clips and a knitted pouch with the coolest button I have ever seen.

43  Need help altering my 4790 whirl-a-way dress in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by EnginerdLisa on: October 11, 2009 05:03:38 PM
Ok, anyone who has made this dress or is familiar with the pattern, I need help.  The darted portion of the front fits great, but the collar and shoulder portion is weird.  It's like the neckline is too wide and the shoulder portion is weird.  I think I can figure out how to make the actual shoulder narrower, so it looks more like a normal sleeveless top, but I can't figure out the other problems.  There is so much extra fabric in the top portion, and I don't know how to take it out and narrow the neckline a little.  HELP.

44  How yellow is too yellow? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by EnginerdLisa on: October 04, 2009 07:17:18 AM
Ok, I am painting a room that used to be wood paneling.  I know I want yellow.  I got it all primed, then got a sample of the yellow that I liked the best.  Part of me loves it, but part is worried that it is a little obnoxious.  Any thoughts would be welcome.

45  Bird Nest Supply Station in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by EnginerdLisa on: September 07, 2009 07:25:35 AM
Not so much a craft project, but something to do with left over bits of string, yarn, fabric etc.  You can be the neighborhood Home Depot for birds!  Take a suet feeder and fill with hair from you hair brush (I use dog hair from my vacuum), bits of string, yarn and fabric from your projects, grass clippings, pine needles, any other materials you think birds can use.  Keep strips of cloth and string short (3 inches or less so birds can carry them and not get tangled), and don't use any plastic or nylon.  Hang it near your bird feeder or other bird houses.  Voila, birdy building supply store!  I can't get a picture of mine, my camera's memory card is stuck in the computer  Angry But I'm sure you can visualize a suet feeder full of dog hair and grass.  I included a picture of a suet feeder (for those who may not know)

46  Boring clearance fan to cool custom fan in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by EnginerdLisa on: September 06, 2009 12:53:13 PM
Ok.  So my mom works at Lowes and always has her eyes open for things I need that are cheap.  She got me this ceiling fan, I was actually less than thrilled about it because it was all white, even the metal, and I have said multiple times that I wanted one that would match the rest of the metal in the kitchen.  But since it was $15 I got over it and grabbed my spray paint, plaster, and left over latex wall paint and here is what I got.

47  My first piece of clothing - lots of pics in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by EnginerdLisa on: July 09, 2009 08:01:56 PM
This is my first piece of clothing I have successfully made myself (second attempt, first was a failed infinity dress).  I have had this yellow halter top for ever, and have always thought it would look cute with the right skirt.  So I made one. 




Of course, the twirl (I need a white crinoline):

Without the crinoline, me demonstrating the pockets:

I'm so sexy:

It is made from New Look 6899.  I have a few little flubs, but the pattern of the fabric hides most of them.  My biggest disappointment is that it just isn't that flattering on me.  Oh well.
