1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Some of my portfolio (+ How I Met Your Mother) on: April 08, 2010 04:20:01 PM
Now that the hectic college application process is over, I have a bunch of no-longer-needed files clogging up my computer...so I figured that I might as well put some of them to good use Smiley Here's a few of the pieces I included in my portfolio:


My pride and joy (which still isn't officially finished, after two months of procrastinating):

aaaaand a quick random drawing....

Props to any of you who know who they are Wink

Thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / A million questions and only a few weeks until prom...ahh! on: April 08, 2010 03:18:44 PM
Hello, fellow denizens of Craftster! Smiley

So...prom is coming up in a few weeks. I was looking around on the Internet for a dress, when I came across this beauty, only to find that it would set me back about 400. DOLLARS. !!! [insert horror movie scream here]

I figured that I might be able to make a dress that looks similar to that, since I've had a bit of experience with sewing (t-shirt recons, Halloween costumes, the works). I have a couple yards of white chiffon lying around that I could use to make the dress, but I have a bunch of questions that (hopefully!) you guys might be able to answer?

- Is there any way to paint dye onto the chiffon? I've painted chiffon with acrylic before, but it's always ended up all wrinkly and stiff.
- Would it make sense to use this pattern? (silly question, I know, but...)
- I'm guessing that there's boning in the dress - is using boning hard for someone who's never used it before?

And most importantly...

- Is this even possible??  Tongue

Thanks Cheesy
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / First CP soap! =) on: February 01, 2010 03:25:36 PM
After months of lurking on this board and looking at soapmaking books, I finally made soap!! Smiley It's a 2 lb. olive/coconut/palm/castor mix I found in one of Susan Cavitch's books. I was a bad person and put FO in my first batch...mainly because I figured that no one in my house would use it unless it smelled good. It was sooo worth it though - mango and papaya...Cheesy Anyways, enough rambling; here's some pics!

I really need to work on cutting in straight lines...Tongue


Can't wait to make more...!  Grin
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / This is a silly question, but...[Cleaning Soap Pot Question] on: January 13, 2010 03:50:11 PM
Hello, hello!

Sorry if this is really stupid or if the answer is hiding somewhere else in the forum, but what is the best way to go about cleaning a soapmaking pot? I read somewhere that you should wait for the remaining soap mixture in the pot to saponify, but that doesn't seem quite right to me...  Huh Can you just wash it right after you pour out the soap?

I figured that it'd be best to get all the questions out of the way before actually making my first batch. I finally got around to ordering lye yesterday, after lurking this board for ages...so excited for the supplies to get here Cheesy

Again, apologies for the newbie's cluelessness!
