1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Black Friday Madness?! on: November 22, 2007 06:10:10 PM
With all the good craft store deals (ahem Joann's at 6AM) and deals everywhere, it's a shopping day that's hard to pass up... except for the super long lines and crazed shoppers...

I'm hoping to get some patterns, fleece (for no-sew blankets), glass etching cream (for jars for "____ in a jar" gifts), scrapbook paper (for wooden name signs) and whatever else I can get my hands on.  Cheesy

What's on your list?
2  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Victoria's Secret PINK pants [my way w/ 4 Pics] on: April 08, 2007 08:08:53 PM
My inspiration:

My Way:
JoAnns was having patterns 5/$5 so I purchased a pattern for some lounge pants. If you are savvier than I with sewing pants from your own pattern, I'm sure it would be a lot less confusing than the pattern I bought.

Instead of "PINK" or the other sayings VS pants usually have on their pants, I decided to put my French class to good use. I decided to write "Live, Laugh, Love" but in French (it translates in an infinitive form saying you guys live, you guys laugh, you guys love).

Here they are:

Left side/Live/Vivez


Right side/Love/Aimez

I used felt for the letters and iron fuse to get them on the pants. The whole iron fuse process is very tedious. I'd say fusing the letters and spacing them on the butt was the hardest.
3  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / neighborhood scavenger hunt on: June 28, 2005 07:27:59 PM
We'd need a list of items that you MUST get from your neighbors (you can't use your own stuff) and use to craft. Our theme could be to make your own animal or species of animal.

For example, if the list (of course, I'd assume it would be longer than this) was:
A soda (or pop...) bottle
A can (either a pop or a food can)
A Cheeto
A cotton ball

You could make an animal called the Craftasaurous (oooh, creative I know... Grin) and the body would be the bottle, the head would be the can, the nose would be the cotton ball, the q-tips could be antennas, and the cheeto could be the tongue.

And it would be a lovely time meeting your neighbors! "Uh, hi... I live across the street. Can I have a cheeto please?"   Cheesy haha.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / splatter painting walls on: June 27, 2005 09:37:43 AM
I have a couple of questions...

Originally, I was thinking about splatter painting all 4 walls in pastel colors. But, if we ever wanted to paint the room again, the splattering would be a bear to cover up. Plus, we thought that it would make the room appear smaller. So, my new idea was to get 3 medium-large size canvases and splatter painting those and put them all spaced equally on one wall and paint the actual walls each a different color from the colors on the canvas.

If it helps you get a better idea, I have a white bedroom set & am going off of the colors of this comforter: http://www.delias.com/item.do?categoryID=435&itemID=21825&sizeFilter=&brandFilter=    [the lighter colors]

1) Would that look too busy [the whole painting idea?]? I really like the idea of using a bunch of colors, but I don't know how it'll turn out in the end.

2) What's the best technique for splatter painting... if there is one? Should I splatter one color at a time, then let it dry, splatter another color, let it dry, ect.?
