21  Re: Shop my sweat shoppe swap (SSS round 5)~now 'till Oct 27 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by honorablemention on: October 25, 2006 04:45:24 PM
finally got around to taking pictures:

1. crazy arse stuffie monsters

2. sick old school tote bags.

note that they won't be as plain as these ones and will probably have some sort of embellisment on the front and the fabrics will be a lot more fun and they won't be all wrinkley. unless you like it like that. so essentially, they won't look like this except for the shape. good thing i posted these pictures. because i'm sure a lot of people are confused on the shape of a tote bag.....yeah.

3. themed cd complete with cd art and pouch holder thing (which is not pictured)

the cd on the left is just a random september sad song mix and the one on the right is a bones&skin&teeth themed cd. sorry the pictures are kind of funky.

4. zine of short stories/ramblings/kick butt cartoonage
*this has yet to be made and will probably only be made if someone actually wants one- at which point i will then have the proper motivation and it will turn out fannnntastic. these are pictures of my last zine just so you have a general idea....

so there you go. i'm siked for this swap- everyone has such cool things in their storeessssss.....

23  make dresses, not war. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by honorablemention on: June 22, 2006 05:18:56 PM
no work today! yay! bonding time with the machine!

this one is made out of a red sheet i found at salvation army. it was fitted so i just cut off the elastic-y ends and added them as a ruffle at the bottom. it has straps (which you can't see due to my hair).

again, another bedsheet. it had fruit on it. fantastic. the red part is just a sash. and the thing in the background is my new bike! i painted it orange! i just had to show it off.

and this one was an XL long sleeve t-shirt. i like the color blue. scoop neck and crazy sleeves.

props to muh baby brutha for taking the pictures.

24  it's bright and fun and i shall wear it forever! (it's a dress) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by honorablemention on: May 27, 2006 09:07:10 AM
my friend was at my house. and took an insanely long shower. so i made this dress while she showered. it's made of two very large pillowcases i bought at salvation army. and i like it a whole lot.

i'm too lazy to take pictures of myself in it. and they always turn out bad. so here's a few pictures of me wearing it around. i have a light blue shirt on under it. you'll get a general idea of what it looks like. i'm pretty proud of it.

that last one was my scene pose. i really think the lime green walls and floral dress add a lot to my scene-ness.

lemme know what you think!

25  fern skirt. big ol' pictures. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by honorablemention on: May 23, 2006 01:27:20 PM
my best friend's birthday was last week. i call her fern because she reminds me of a fern. (sidenote: she calls me gully as a shortened form of my last name. so together we're ferngully. kinda dorky but i like it). i bought an old bedsheet (because i'm cheap) and made it into a simple elastic-waisted skirt and then i painted some ferns on it. and i added some quotes and lyrics and such in between the ferns. modeled below by myself

another sidenote: these pictures were taken in my little brothers room and you can see the giant duct-tape weapon thing he made in the background. yay crafty brother!

and this is the fern:

and boy. oh boy. was i pleased. times a thousand.
craft_t_chic = fantastic. thank you thank you thank you.

the whole package- i wore that shirt out last night and i got soooo many compliments. now i'm worried that one of my friends might try and steal it.

bookmark (which is currently in my book), awesome little leaf buttons, and a couple of pages about trees will which be incorporated in some fantastic project in the future.

adorable little cards, fantastic necklace and leaf earrings.

i love love love this sationary. i was really really excited about it. so excited that i wrote my grandparents a letter just so i could use it.

this is going on my wall. it's insanely beautiful. it's called 'snowfall' and it's digital photography if i'm understanding the tag on the back.

i loved my package. thank you craft_t_chic!

27  trash flavored party in Party Planning by honorablemention on: February 20, 2006 08:17:36 AM
so. i just had a tea party on friday. but today is my birthday and we have off school. so i took it as a sign from god that i needed to have a party on sunday night. so i convinced my parents to allow me to have a 'small gathering' (which ended up being twenty seven people in my really small basement.) after last year's cupcake massacre, my dearest mom and dad were a little concerned about the party and told me if any small incident should occur, i wouldn't be able to get my permit for another three weeks- MINIMUM. so clearly. nothing bad could happen. because i reallly reallllly want to drive.
the theme of the party was trash. i put newspaper all over my walls and on the biggest wall i taped brown craft paper and i graffiti-itized it. later on in the night a couple of my artistic friends found the paint and added to it so it ended up looking much better. and i covered my couch and treadmill and most of the furniture in old sheets. and i put all the pillows in trash bags and covered the chairs in trash bags. i also got toliet paper (which was surprisingly strong- yay dollar store toliet paper) and used it as streamers.  people had to come dressed as some interpretation of 'trashy'. people came as white trash, and hookers, and hobos, and mary-kate olsen, and oscar the grouch and it was just entertaining. though most people changed out of thier costumes by the end. overall it was one of my favorite parties. pictures:

the very best part was at the end when we were cleaning. and neil asked where the trash bags were. and i ripped one off a barstool.

28  stop me if i've already posted this. my memory stinks- you would think i'm 80. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by honorablemention on: January 10, 2006 05:06:17 PM
but i'm not 80. though i aspire to be.
so. i went to a phillippino ball with my friend kim. and it pretty much rocked. and her phillippino friend andrew was there. and i was introduced like this:  "this is caitlin. she's good at making things. she could make anything." so this kid's first response is "will you make me something?" and i said of course because a) he's really really nice b) he's really really cute c) he's a local celebrity. any central pennsylvanians out there- it's the guy from koji on the roof and el toro and jura? anyone?

so yeah. i made a monster.

that's a real goofy picture of the monster.

and that's the kid i made it for on the left.
it was supposed to be him in mosnter form. hence the glasses and facial hair.
and so then i gave it to him and he loved it and now the monster is on tour.
the end.

29  significantotherless tea party//edited with pictures in Party Planning by honorablemention on: January 10, 2006 02:10:52 PM
so. i get majorly bummed around valentine's day. because there is so much cute stuff to buy. and i love red and pink and hearts. and i just feel especially crafty and want to make mix tapes and sweaters and mushy valentines. but alas, i have no one to give these wonderful goodies to. high school boys suck. they'll appreciate me later.

anyway. i decided that this year i'm going to have a tea party for all my boyfriendless gal pals. my mom collects tea pots so we're each going to get a different tea pot. and the invitations are going to be all fancy and lacy and goopy and wonderful. and everyone gets a fun name like "madame ________" or "lady __________" or "duchess __________". because i'm a dork. everyone will be asked to dress nicely in red and pink and white and bring a small gift. we'll have have a chinese auction type thing so we can each get a valentines present. even if it's not from a boy. and then we'll probably watch some audrey hephburn movie or sixteen candles and swoon and whatnot.

so the purpose of me posting all of this was...
does anyone have any other ideas? foodwise? gamewise? decorationwise?
i know it'll be ten times better with craftster imput.


last night was tea party night. and even though a i had a lot of people bail out on me, it was still a crap load of fun. everyone dressed up and we had chicken salad sandwiches and pb&j and cucumber sandwiches and cream puffs and a cherry chip heart shaped cake and a butt load of cookies. and then we had a chinese auction and watched sabrina. and then we all fell asleep. you would think we're forty. but no. we're just a bunch of teenage girls who get a little sleepy past nine o'clock on a friday night. overall it was fairly banging. thanks for all the suggestions!


i made a valentines day mix cds for the invitations. it was uber sappy and cute. yet still danceable.

various table shots and shtttuufffff.....the circus tea pot is my favorite.
yeah. so after we woke up...
we were all kinda out of it. so we danced.

check out muh fly moves.
and my spectacular skirt. that started out as a dress. but then i got frustrated cause i looked bad in it so i cut it in half. yeaaahhh. not the smartest thing to do.
but i like it better as a skirt anyway.

30  zombieparty05. we watched cops. now that's some real party fun. in Party Planning by honorablemention on: January 10, 2006 12:58:05 PM
zombie party 05:
i had it at my aunt's 150 year old farm house. sppooookkkyyyy.

yeah not the best pictures....
i basically just covered the furniture in old sheets (that i put fake blood on) so it gave it an abandoned feel and the rest of the house was covered in spiderwebs. yeah. not the craftiest but eh. man did that party stink. we watched night of the living dead and sat around. i cringe to think about it. never again will i host a party in an area 30 minutes away from where my friends all live.
