1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Frames to Earring Holders - IMG heavy on: April 03, 2012 05:23:50 PM
I've seen these all over the interwebs and I needed a better way to arrange my earrings.  Basically took goodwill frames, painted bright colors and put window screening in the center and voila!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Hoopla + Vintage Brooches on: February 17, 2012 04:23:53 PM
I took an old embroidery hoop, sprayed it gold, then took some green and gold sari fabric I got on my trip to India and then pinned all my vintage brooches on it.  I like that they aren't lying around in some box where I can't enjoy them and it makes it easier to pick and cheese them when I want to wear them.

Close up

Sorry their so dark Sad
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 70s Goodwill Find to Wonderland Beauty on: July 25, 2010 07:35:27 PM
My sister-in-law made me a really nice sconce with a Victorian Lady Skeleton in the center.  I found another one at the Goodwill and decided that I'd make more of them and fill one of the walls in the living room with them. 

First I painted it black with Glitter accents. I started with a picture I really loved by an artist on DeviantArt called MirrorCandle, turning it to grayscale and printing it out. 

It came out like a coloring book piece which was great. So I colored it with watercolor pencils and cut it out

Then I put coffee grounds all over it, probably a little too much but I like it

And so more of the result

And in the frame

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Leopard Print Wiggle Dress on: March 27, 2010 05:48:52 PM
First Post!! So I made this dress in three days to wear when I auditioned for Mel Brooks' The Producers at the local community Theatre.  I was trying out for the Swedish Bombshell so I thought why not look the part and have a dress that I could wear afterwards!

First I tested the Pattern using a sheet, hideous!

Then I made a few alterations, I had to put a slit in the back because you couldn't go up stairs without hiking the skirt up to mid thigh.  I had to take this with my camera so it's right before I left.

This one my husband took with the flash, too bright

And now too dark and the light from the hall is reflecting off the picture frame glass and it looks weird.  Let me know your thoughts
