1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / privacy screen/room divider 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:

2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 120 ENTRIES / Every den needs a little game! 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.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Davey Havok inverted cross replica leather jacket 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!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rainbow Caron Cakes knitted scarf 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.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / wood burned coasters 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:

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wood burned drum sticks. 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:

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas stocking crazy! 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!

8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / some painted Converse for friends on: October 23, 2016 09:42:51 AM
I painted some shoes for my friends as a thank you for letting us stay with them for a few weeks when we drove across the country. I used Angelus leather paint and my own brushes so I could get better detail than the little nail polish brush attached to the cap.

I was really worried when one of them wanted me to do Settlers of Catan themed shoes. It has very boring realistic looking art compared to most other tabletop games that we play but I was proud with the layout I created.

I had a lot more fun with the Watchmen Dr. Manhattan theme!

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Candy/Sugar Skull pinup on: March 23, 2016 05:58:52 PM
A friend of mine commissioned me to paint her a candy skull girl. I hadn't painted or drawn anything like it before and had tons of fun! She is painted with acrylics on a 16" x 20" canvas and took about 15 hours (including drawing the concept out on paper first). After she was done I jazzed her up with some paper flowers and butterflies.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter Sorting Hat lamp on: November 08, 2015 11:52:53 AM
My brother-in-law is getting married in January and his bride to be loves Harry Potter. I had so much fun making the Nightmare Before Christmas Mayor lamp that I knew immediately I wanted to make Harry Potter and the sorting hat! I used paper, cardboard and a ton of mod podge, paint and acrylic glaze to decorate the lamp shade.
