1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / nine month anniversary. on: August 23, 2008 11:53:10 PM
so today was actually me and my boyfriends nine months.
we have been through a lot and broke up way too many times to count but we always get back together.
lately i feel like ive been a crappy girlfriend and like i dont deserve him.
so i want to make him something that will prove to him that i really care.
i love him to death and i want him to know that.
although i know he does i still feel the need to make him something.
plus nine months is a big step for both of us.

ive made him:
mixed cds
stuffed penguins
hemp bracelets

thats about it because i dont know what he would like.

he wears skinny jeans and cares about his hair.
hes into music, piercings and tattoos.
he smokes way too much for his own good.
we have a pretty open relationship.

hes just really hard to buy for/make for.

any suggestions?

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / houndstooth dress. on: June 21, 2008 12:22:37 PM
i am absolutely in love with this dress. (:
its the only piece of clothing i have made that i would wear all the time.
i kind of made up the pattern.
i more or less traced a shirt i had and made it a little longer.

detail on the sleeves and neckline.
which i adore. (:

sorry for the akward pose.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / best guy friend gift. eek. on: November 11, 2007 10:14:04 AM
so my best guy friends birthday is november fourteenth. yes i am aware today is november eleventh. i already made him a gift. but it didnt turn out quite how i wanted. it looks a bid odd. it was a stuffed monkey that i found was cute. but whatever. i would like for the gift to be handmade because he appreciates that kind of thing. last year i made him an abc book that spelled out him name in animals. so anything random and pointless like that but appears to take a lot of effort, he will appreciate it.

he will be turning sixteen.
but i dont think he will be able to drive so nothing related to that.

hes a typical indie/hardcore kid.
he wears loose fit jeans, band tshirts, converses or vans.
he goes to shows and is into that scene.

hes a computer junky.

im up for just about any craft.
i can sew but cannot knit, crochet or anything like that.
i dont want to stencil.
and i want something that is fairly simple and does not require much time.
i would prefer to already have the materials at home opposed to going to buy them.
but i wouldnt mind buying a few.

so basically any random little craft that is simple but cute is fine.
it does have to be a little boyish but not entirely.
as you read i didnt make him an alphabet book and attempted a monkey
so anything really.

thanks in advance. (:
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink tie back dress. on: July 04, 2007 02:20:00 AM
this was really simple. the body is a tube with a few gathers in the front. the top is also a tube. theres a circle left in the back of the body with room to tie a knot to keep the dress up better.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / complete urban outfitters knockoff. on: July 02, 2007 09:41:39 PM
i liked the dress and wasnt about to spend $48 on something i could make for less than $2. literally, this fabric was $1 a yard. so here it is.


you can wear it either way.
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / an appreciation gift. on: June 10, 2007 03:11:56 AM
so theres this kid well hes my boyfriend, now
but anyway and he lives about two hours away
and he comes up when he can and will be sometime soon
and i just want to give him a little gift to tell him that i appreciate him coming up here and spending his money and all that since my parents wont let me drive down there but i dont want it to be like big thank you card or something. just a small little craft of any sort really, well i cant crochet, knit, or anything like that. i can sew and would be up for a few other things.
if anybody has any ideas i would appreciate it.

a little about him
he used to be a real big punk before i met him
now hes fallen in love with where he came from, north carolina
meaning he listens to country and kinda dresses preppy
hes pretty much in love with that whole culture
but i dont listen to country at all and dont plan on it aha.
i think hed appreciate a mixed cd but thats an obvious for any boy lol
so anything else would help.

i didnt plan on it turning out so small but bigger next time, i guess.   Wink

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / pleated bandana tote and another. on: June 09, 2007 12:53:00 AM
i havent posted anything in a while
especially in this section
tell me what you guys think.
any criticism is appreciated it
do you think anyone else would like the bandana purse?

its lined with polka dot fabric like the first one.
i dont like the face of the octopus which is technically a squid but whatever.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / princess for the day. [idea] on: May 23, 2007 01:47:32 PM
so this is for my friends sweet sixteen.
at first i was going with the sixteen candles kinda idea
but it just turned into princessy.
but anyhow. i bought most of it and just decorated it.

here it is all together, the only thing i didnt make was the wand.

an a for ashley. i got the foam letter and added the sequins. and it took hours.  Shocked

a cupcake for her birthday.

a little princess sign that i simply stuck sequins on.

some silly shades that i decorated.

and a crown which im not all that crazy about.

oh and i almost forgot the card. it totally doesnt match the theme but is probably my favorite part.

does anyone have any other ideas on what i could add?
