41  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Break Up First Aid Kit..swap [[that's a mouthful]] on: April 20, 2005 05:02:01 PM
so this isn't completely my idea. but i can't find the other topic. it was somjething like "Break Up Relief Swap?" or something, i don't know. but i thought it could be like a journal of things that would make someone feel better about their relationship issues. So..you could write about past experiences, encouraging quotes/thoughts, etc.

i'm scared to organize a swap, but i'd participate in this if someone else organized it.

lemme know whatcha think!

43  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Beatles Tee on: March 20, 2005 10:10:13 AM
Well, I was inspired by this post to do the front "Twist" [note: hers are so much better, but drawing on cloth is not easy]

here's mine:
with the "shout"







paul and ringo are messed up but that's okay. and george looks more like Jim Morrison. ha.
i don't mind.

picture i drew it by

i did the twist and shout pictures in maroon and black sharpies. the "Twist&&Shout" words in gold paint marker
all the back was done in black sharpie.

woo, thanks for lookin'
44  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / my crazy room re-doing experience. on: March 20, 2005 06:58:25 AM
okay so we started out with...

which was very cute but i grew out of it.

first i had to clean...my room had gotten out of hand. Embarrassed


shove stuff in the closet time:

move stuff into middle of room:

put the tarp thing down [i forgot what it's called!]

tape it up...

6 inch stripes.

and i ran out of tape, so i had to recycle...


the colors:

almost all green!


i made a mess in the tub Roll Eyes :

ignore the deflated boppy sticky thing. kid brother had it in there for some reason.

the windows in progress:

the windows currently [still not finished  Embarrassed ] with the shelves i painted to match

my nook "reading nook"

i hadn't put the books on the shelves yet, but they're there now. and yes, that's an inflatable alien... Cheesy

then once mom forced me to move back in, i had to clean the closet.... Shocked




the room is still not done because mom forced me to move back into my room and you can imagine how hard it is to finish painting a room when all your furniture and other crap is in the way. Undecided
but it will be done!


45  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / bee sting? [*now with pictures*] on: March 19, 2005 04:52:22 PM
okay, i JUST realized i have this HUMONGO bug bite type thing on my temple. i think it might be a bee sting. i never really had a bee sting before so i don't know. at first i thought it was a pesky under-skin zit...so i tried to pop it..but that just made me realize it is NOT a zit.

close up

in comparison of the other side of my head

but is there anything to make it stop hurting?!?!
46  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / recon skirt, belt, legwarmers w/skirt tutorial. [picture heavy] on: March 19, 2005 02:27:06 PM
i apologize for silly pictures  Cheesy.

okay, i know it's been done. but here's my go at it...

ugly capris i never wore:

cut a few inches below the zipper but ABOVE the crotch...

it should look like this now...

if you fancy, you could wear it like that with some neon leggings or something...

but i decided to continue...

try a few different lengths to see how short you want it

cut open the pant leg and fold it over..

cut the length you chose [a little longer for room to sew.]

now decide whether you like the inside out or the outside out...

i chose inside out because i thought it looked nice.

i hand sew everything so i don't really know how to go about this on a machine. it only took about an hour even hand sewn so i imagine it wouldn't take long at all on a machine...

to sew a pleat:
fold a bit over [either way works, over or under..i prefer over.]
then sew over that

once you have one piece sewn on, turn it rightside out and see if you like the way your pleats are turning out.

i, indeed, liked mine

now continue to cut and sew the pant legs to the edge of the skirt...
don't forget to sew each pant leg to the ones next to it!

once you have half done, try it on and see if you like it. is it the right length? did a pleat get funky on you?

i enjoyed it half done and pranced around the house with it half done over my jeans for quite some time...

keep sewing the last pieces on!

[i tried it on when the third piece was sewn on too.]
it should look like this after the third piece is sewn on:

keep sewing and don't forget to pleat every now and then!

final result:

excuse the "I'm a little teapot pose"...

with the belt i reconstructed:

to do that...
i somehow managed to lose the belt buckle a while ago. found matching [sort of] ribbon and sewed it on.. tie it and voila!

and legwarmers:

i had an old shirt i never wore [it was so huge and i didn't feel like refitting it]
i cut off the sleeves and put them on my legs.
try to cut the top of the sleeves straight, if you like.
then you can add some ruching. i didn't yet, but i probably will later.

i'd love your feedback! [i hope the pictures work! thanks to kossmicgirl for the photo help!]
47  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Gift for Mommy....HELP! on: March 02, 2005 10:23:19 AM
I want to make something for my mom. We always just give her a card for her birthday and Mother's Day. [when is mother's day???]. She's a good lady and I would love to give her something.

Our livingroom is red and black and her bedroom is going to be dark blue. Maybe some decorations for there. BUT WHAT?!

My mom's a very sensible lady so something quaint and simple will do.
