2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / my favorite ink pens in the world! on: November 06, 2005 03:26:17 PM
You can buy all sorts of ink pens and when clueless came out I went crazy and bought every feather pen in sight because I loved loved loved them! and well now that I am older I have one feather pen left...out of ink of course...I used that baby until it was completely dead.....but I thought it would be so awesome to make and decorate my own pens so i got a little wild and made ones with flowers and feathers and other sorts.... Grin

and I made these with my old spice girl dolls..I have one of each but several of my friends are out borrowing the others but I managed to snag Posh Spice still...I had like 15 of the dolls so i can make 3 sets...Smiley

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my bulletin board...with a twist... on: November 05, 2005 08:02:12 PM
by far one of my favorite things i've made..Smiley

my bulletin board!!

It didn't look complete with out the boa so it was definatly necessary...

The thumb tacks are little cars I bought at wal mart for like a dollar and bottle caps and scrabble letters from a scrabble game that I found at a resale store for a dollar..i made lots of holders for like bigger things to like pens and stuff..

some of the letters i made..i played a little scrabble game until I actually find a reason to use my bulletin board..I haven't gotten to use it yet..sadly enough I dont need it..I made it for my dorm room in college...

Me and my boyfriend:

a place for pens of course

Hope you like as much as I do!

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My T-Shirt Quilt on: November 05, 2005 07:11:37 PM
This is my quilt I worked on in the summer....I learned to quilt in the like 8th grade..and for some reason I love it...I have made 3 quilts since then and am now a senior this is the first one to post, I made it from a lot of my old shirts that don't fit anymore...and put a border on it because I wasn't sure if it was was going to be big enough but I knew with a border I can always increase the size....I knew i wouldn't need to decrease..i patched it all together by machine but quilted by hand I didn't have a deal to put it on to make everything smoothed out what do you think:

my border is like iron on transfers i bought a at walmart so they are kind of coming off..they are pictures of friends and family and things that are important to me know like my car, and camera and boyfriend and roses and stuffed animals and such....and inbetween is different material I bought that reminds me of when i was really little like strawberry shortcake my little pony spiderman and stuff..

I hope you like it..
