21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Who else is jealous? on: December 28, 2007 09:16:01 PM
So I see all these awesome and delicious DIY weddings on here, who else is Jealous of them?
Come on I know I'm not the only one! When I got married I wasn't completely absorbed into DIY/Crafting as I am now. Now looking back I can see how many cool ideas I could've done with my wedding.
Don't get me wrong I LOVED my wedding! My Hubby and I still get compliments on it (3 yrs later). We didn't have traditional wedding party, also had home made (aka crappy) invitations, yummy cake made by grandparents and/or whatever else we could do to pinch pennys.
Anywho I know there are those who know what I'm talking about.
If I would've known the craftiness that I knew now how much cooler could my wedding of been and that leads me to my present state. I'm so glad my fellow craftster have a great crafty wedding but apart of me is well green to say the less (lease what's the right word!?).
22  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Is this tacky? on: October 23, 2007 06:44:08 PM
So here's the problem, I want to make a quilt but don't have enough time to quilt it. So instead of batting I bought a fleece blanket so then I wouldn't have to quilt it. The original plan was to just bind the quilt top to the fleece blanket but then I got to thinking that it may be a bit tacky. I'm really picky about two types of materials mixing so I'm really unsure about this. What do you guys think? Should I bind the cotton quilt top to the fleece blanket or should I use the blanket as batting and attach a regular cotton backing?
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Dress, Need opinion please on: July 11, 2007 02:19:24 PM
Well to make a long story short I made this dress (first clothing item I made with a pattern) over a year ago, I messed it up so I got mad and put it in the back of my closet.

While I was doing a closet purge I found it and decided to get off my lazy butt and fix it. Fixed the hem but it's still a bit wonky.

It's a little hard to see in the pic but theres a little bit that sticks out on the front. I'm thinking about putting a red belt/band thing there to hide it but I can't decide if it looks right, what do you guys think?

And a close up of the fabric because I love it  Cheesy

24  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Any freezable recipes? on: June 21, 2007 07:25:07 AM
Hello all I'm looking for some good freezable recipes. I know technically anything can be frozen but some things just don't taste very good when you unfreeze them. I'm working a lot of evening shifts this semester and like to have some ready made dinner for me and my Hubby.

I know lasagna is a good freeze for later meal but I have no idea how to cook it.  Embarrassed

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / when you see something of yours on a wist on: June 07, 2007 06:59:21 PM
Hmm is that a long subject name?
Oh well anyways so your browsing around on random peoples wists (cause it's mildly addicting) and then you see something you made on. Doesn't that just make your day  Grin
I'm not the best crafter in the world and don't think anything I do is professional enough to sell but it's so awesome to see that someone would want something I made or even something similar to it.
The first time I saw a necklace I made on someones wists I got so excited I went and told my Husband and he just didn't get it.
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Simple puppy love frame on: May 28, 2007 06:08:53 PM
I made this frame a little while back but I've never got around to posting it. I saw a very cute frame at AC Moore that said puppy love on it and I really wanted it for one of my favorite pictures, but I didn't have $10 even though it was on sale. Instead I went and bought one of the blank wood frames for a dollar, went home and raided my stash.
I used some paw print paper, tags I tea stained (one of my favorite things to do) and twine.
It's not as fancy as the one at the store but I think it's pretty cute and matches my photo perfectly.

27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sublime Stitching Woodburning on: May 28, 2007 06:01:21 PM
This is my first woodburning project and I got to say it's not the greatest but I still like it. The pics (except the little stars) are from sublime stitching craftopia pattern.


On some parts, mostly the writing it looks like I gouged the wood more then burned it. Was this from the tip not being hot enough or was I just pressing to hard  Huh


I was thinking about adding some color with a wash but I'm not sure, what do you all think?

30  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / colors that make you want to create on: January 30, 2007 07:02:00 AM
Hey folks what colors inspire you?
I'm trying to decide on a color for my craft room. It's currently a soft light blue which I did like but now I think it's rather blah. I got bored with the theme I was going for, I only picked the theme cause I had everything and it would be super cheap and easy. I had a lot of cute bright prints of dogs and we got a lot of novelty frames for my pet photos for Christmas a few years back.
I'd rather not have a theme for the room now since it also serves as a guest room. I'm thinking about a nice teal or turquoise. The room doesn't get a lot of light so nothing to dark. When I walk in I want to be "Wow! let's make stuff!"
Any ideas after I rambled on? lol
