1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: JULY 2006 Birthday Month Swap on: July 06, 2006 07:49:21 PM
Happy Birthday everyone!
yeahhh July babies.

so anyways.

My name's Kristen and I'll be 16 on July 25. (hey sweet sixeen. finally). Basically colorguard/winterguard is all I do. (And I don't mean the wimpy flag twirlers at parades. I mean the actualy shows and stuff. If you don't know what that is there's vidoes in the multimedia section of wgi.org.) This summer I'm marching a DCA drum corps for the first time and i LOVE it. I'm going to be a junior in high school this fall and... thats really it I guess. My favorite subjects in school are journalism, english and us history. This past year I took photography for a semester which was really cool. I love photography, spanish dance music (i really wish i was fluent in spanish. I take it in school but thats not much.) My favorite color is green. I really don't know what else to say. I would love to go to FIT but that's basically just a dream because being a fashion designer these days in pretty impractical. Even though I'm going to try anyways, lol. I guess that's it about me. Oh and I love collages and anything vintage

For my birthday...

Ive been wanting a big oversize red canvas messenger bag with lots of pockets and brown/cream accents. but uh...yeah that's kinda ambitious lol.

I love dangly earrings and jingly bracelets

ooh a necktie hat would be amazing. (i cant find the link...sorry)

OR a nintendo controller belt. (or a belt out of something equally weird/cool. basically i love belts in general).

a legends of the hidden temple shirt would probably make my life. any of the teams, i don't really care.

a spoon bracelet would be divine.

as would anything dinosaur-y.

ooh and i could really use an ipod cozy with windows like this:
( i have a 30gb ipod video)

any t shirt that has anthing about myspace, colorguard, or stuart from mad tv.

a super cool keyring would be awesome since ill be learning to drive.

and suprises are awesome. duh.

i guess thats all i can think of. i really have no clue lol.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: WALALALALALLET on: April 24, 2006 07:26:35 PM
thanks everyone.
yeah im planning on cleaning my room tonight. but im also planning on making version #2 of the wallet in hopes that it will be better than this one with no little mistakes and weird parts or whatever.

the birds i just stenciled on. im a little dissapoiinted casues since the stencil was so small some of the tinier birds came out weird. and i got the fabric paint all over the place so theres some smudges lol.

and yes, ill totally post a picture of my clean room.

so last night, instead of cleaning my room i made a new wallet. (its not crooked, its just the picture.)

^^ the room i didnt clean....

yeah. im a little dissapointed cause i messed up the change part (the button thing) and the card things are too short and i need to close it with velcro or something BUT i put one of those plastic "stick your id here" things on the only place the velcro might go so....bad engineering. but it was my first attempt at a wallet so im proud.

note: dont fuck around with spray adhesive at 3am. not a good idea.

ps; sorry the pictures are big.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / how to make this skirt? on: April 12, 2006 08:43:43 PM

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fashion design as a career?? on: February 28, 2006 09:04:56 PM
Ok so I know I sound like every other teenager out there who likes clothes and "wants to be a fashion designer". While this is true, I know that I have the creativity, talent and ambition to become a designer or pursue some kind of fashion career. The problem is, I have no idea where to start and what kind of steps to take to do this. I'm a sophomore in high school right now and I'm starting to get the heaps of college letters in my mailbox and email - meaning I know college is right around the corner. This only leaves me more stumped as to how to get into a design school, etc. I wouldn't even know how to put a portfolio together or how to apply or anything.

I know some of you on here are already in school for a job in fashion and I was wondering if you could tell me how to start and get going in the right direction? I'm really clueless as to what to do. I'm also planning on taking some kind of class or summer coarse somewhere to get better and get more expierence, but I can't find anywhere in the Connecticut/ New England area. So if you had any ideas about that, that'd be great too.

Someone please help!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / yet ANOTHER sweet 16 post... on: January 25, 2006 11:28:31 AM
well since no one had any ideas to offer for my friends disco suprise pasrty, hopefully you'll have some ideas for this one?

in may my best friends and i are having a conjoined sweet 16 party. yeah, it seems early but we dont see eachother often cause of her dance schedule and my guard schedule. we're planning on renting this room in our town hall (which is also has a movie theatre in it...the town hall i mean, not the room lol). the only problem is we're stuck on ideas.

the problem is we go to different schools and have different friends. we want to bring them all together and have them meet but nicole (the friend im having this with) says most of her guy friends will be really bored if all we do is dance, while my friends would be entertained forever dancing. plus, there really isnt much to do besides dancing if we rent that room/a  dj.

so yeah. any theme/ideas or whatever would be AMAZING.
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Take Away 16th on: January 25, 2006 11:18:32 AM
well these ideas might be kinda stupid...sorry....but i'll try.

good games to play that get people talking a lot are those wacky/interactive group board games like cranium, pictionary and MOODS.omg moods is amazingly fun and is definately going to get people laughing/bonding/talking/whatever.

uhh decorations?? im not sure. i'd decorate with an "around the world" theme like have some japanese lanters, an italian flag, whatever. i dunno. sorry im not much help in that department lol

good luck! happy early 16th birthday!
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / disco party? on: January 23, 2006 01:30:28 PM
kayso here's the scenario.

my friend amanda and i are having a disco/70's themed (very belated) surpise sweet 16 for our friend lauren this friday at my house.

the problem? we came up with the idea about a week ago and have to put everything together this week.

we've invited about 25 people -- the rest of the colorguard the three of us are in and a few other people who we hang out with in school.

does anyone have ANY ideas for food/decorations, or anything? were planning on having people dress up and basically hanging out/ dancing the whole time. we've enlisted our friend mark to make a few cds of 70''s music and im looking to borrow one of those black disco ball things with the colored lights from my friend sarah.

we're also planning on putting that colored cellophane over the lights in my basement (theyre all the rectangular lights built into the ceiling that are obnoxiously bright and un flattering.)

ALSO, we're poor high school students who dont want to spend too much money and have to get this pulled together by this friday. we do, however, have plenty of time seeing as this week is midterms which = all half days.

any help or ideas would be GREATLT appreciated. thanks.
