1  Decoupaged boxes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pookiemccool on: April 11, 2018 11:24:59 PM
I have a ton of old music magazines from the early 2000's when I used to subscribe to Spin and Alternative Press that I've just been holding onto. I finally decided to go through them and make some use out of the articles:

The lid on the last box was dinged so I added images inside too.

2  pin-up girl makeup bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: April 11, 2018 03:18:09 AM
I used to paint pin-up girls on purses and sell them back in the days of Myspace and decided to revamp some Ipsy makeup bags. Here are the ones I have done so far, I have a few more once I find the right girls to go on denim.

3  Trolls Smidge YOLO hoopla in CHALLENGE 123 ENTRIES by pookiemccool on: April 04, 2018 12:16:07 AM
When I think spring and colorful I immediately think of the Trolls now. I don't have children but I love the movie so much, it has such a positive message! I decided to make some hooplas and just had to do some characters from Trolls so I give you the most colorful, Smidge.

This was inspired by the scene where she gets hit in the face with glitter:

I may need to go back and clean some of the glitter off of her eyelashes and give her a few lines by her eyes but I still love her.

4  privacy screen/room divider in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pookiemccool on: February 13, 2018 01:44:40 AM
My husband and I like to make each other birthday gifts every year which means lots of time spent in separate rooms working on each other's presents. With both of our birthdays around the corner I decided to build a privacy screen, we have always wanted one but they are generally out of our price range. I used mostly things I already had laying around the house (a printer box, some old curtains, leftover furniture paint, duct tape), all together I had to spend $14 for 2 bottles of spray adhesive and a roll of ribbon. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out for just winging it!

Here it is all finished:

And here are a few in progress shots:

5  Every den needs a little game! in CHALLENGE 120 ENTRIES by pookiemccool on: October 06, 2017 06:22:27 PM
I'm not the mother type myself but when my friends decide to have kids I enjoy making gifts for the baby or for the nursery. So when my friend told me that he and his wife were making a little den for their first child I immediately knew that I wanted to make faux taxidermy! I found the pattern on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1314512865) and made two slight modifications, I didn't want to make it in purple and I wasn't really fond of the lips.

6  Davey Havok inverted cross replica leather jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: March 24, 2017 08:37:56 PM
My husband and I have both loved A.F.I. for years. Several years ago when Davey Havok started wearing an inverted cross leather jacket my husband really wanted one. It isn't exactly something we could find for sale anywhere, I'm pretty sure Davey had his custom made.

Two years ago I decided to make my husband one for his birthday but I ran into a few issues with the pyramid studs, it turns out trying to attach them directly to the jacket was a bad idea for multiple reasons! This year I finally found a way to make it work and I'm super proud of how well it looks!

7  Rainbow Caron Cakes knitted scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by pookiemccool on: January 21, 2017 06:07:11 PM

I saw the rainbow Caron Cakes yarn over the holidays when I was buying yarn for another project and immediately fell in love. Such brilliant colors and super soft for acrylic yarn! I like my scarves long so I can wrap them around my neck and still have the ends fall at about my waist or below. I used almost 2 skeins and made it nice and wide so it would be warm and cozy. I wanted it to work up quickly so it is just straight knit.

8  wood burned coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: January 21, 2017 04:45:11 PM

I had a lot of fun wood burning drum sticks so I decided to try some coasters. After burning them I colored them with watercolor pencils and sprayed them with clear coat. I think they all turned out super cute!

Here are a few up close pictures:

9  Wood burned drum sticks. in Completed Projects by pookiemccool on: December 10, 2016 10:47:43 PM
I love the smell of burnt wood and have been looking for an excuse to use the wood burning tool that my husband bought last year. A friend of mine asked me to burn some drum sticks for a friend of hers so I decided to make use of the extras. I am really pleased with how well they all turned out!

Here are details of the band logos:

10  Christmas stocking crazy! in Winter Holidays by pookiemccool on: November 28, 2016 07:31:35 PM
My sister-in-law asked me to make stockings for my niece and nephew for Christmas this year. I had so much fun that I made tons more!

The first one I made was a Frozen stocking for my 6 year old niece.

The second was a Minecraft stocking for my nephew who is 10.

Then a friend of a friend commissioned me to make a few more Minecraft stockings.

Then over the holiday weekend I made a bunch more because they were fun and I needed something to do while watching the Gilmore Girls!
