11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / tri chem liquid embroidery? on: July 12, 2007 10:14:49 AM

i came across a fREE lot of around 60 bottles of tri-chem liquid embroidery and their go glo line. (pic below). i've done a bunch of internet research and kindo get what it is, BUT am not sure how a crafter in today's day and age would use it? is it good for stenciling?

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / leather earrings! lotsa img. on: July 01, 2007 10:57:51 AM

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / octopus bag!! on: June 30, 2007 11:21:36 PM

i made this bag out of reclaimed fabrics/items. it was inspired by this awesome handsewn octopus bag i saw on etsy and for all of my searching savvy can't find now.  mine is a little more on the "cute" side while the etsy one is WAY more intricate and bigger.

this one has a brown calico lining and a burgundy 80s belt for a strap. it fits over like a messenger, but is better as a slouchy 80s shoulder bag.

thanks for looking!!

15  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / the confederation nation, img heavy! on: March 30, 2007 12:59:53 AM
before i moved into my new house (new town!), i lived in an art house we deemed the confederation nation (phone number ended in 1867). it was nice. here's some design pics from the house.

the majic ghost patrol graffitti the house at one of our art parties

we painted the inside of the kitchen cupboards royal purple

my mom reno'd the boot room for us! so nice!

we had a wall of telephones!! and one actually had a connection to the outside world. it was really confusing for guests!

our moms did a while you were out and built us a courtyard (with crush even!), there's a sheet on the table in this pic, but it was a tiled mosaic table, handmade by my bestfriend's/roommate's mom!

and this was the tape dispenser i taped out on my bedroom wall

thanks for looking!!
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / arty haven in the hood on: March 30, 2007 12:50:36 AM
i wish i had some before pictures. when we came to check the place out we were desperate. there was garbage all over the floor, holes in the wall, no drain pipe under the kitchen sink, and garbage all over our lawn. needless to say it was cleaned and vacuumed when we actually moved in, but definitely not inspired.  so we added some touches though they've taken quite some time. enjoy!

these are things we put on the old yellow dresser in our bedroom.

these are some frames on our living room wall. can you believe it? the walls were already cappuccino toned!!

shoes, books, scarves, and our wingback (lookee, my sewing machine!!)

the hanging lights in our kitchen (from freecycle!! yay!)

thanks for looking loves!!

18  CANADA / British Columbia / **Prince George Craft Collective** on: January 17, 2007 11:24:41 PM
A meeting of the Prince George Craft Collective (dedicated to bringing the punk, spunk, and all around northern-inspired fun back into crafting in the North!) will be meeting on Sunday, January 28th from 2:00pm-3:00pm in Cafe Voltaire (Books 'n Company).

**What is the PGCC**

The structure of the PGCC will be completed and announced at the first meeting on the 28th (will be handed out in pamplet format!).  The two main purposes of the PGCC are to 1. create an environment and community with which to embrace counter-culture crafts and crafters; and 2. to create an entrepenuerial market for crafters of counter-culture inspired crafts (anything really, but a lot in the vein of this very here craftster).  There *will* be a small yearly membership fee to cover table costs at the farmer's market and the PG Folk Fest for the entire collective (shared table--let's battle those grannies and their barbie-toilet-roll-covers!).  Collective membership will cap at 30-40 members (depending on fees for farmers market/folk fest); any additional members will be juried by a small consensus body of the PGCC.  Through the sale of PGCC items at the farmer's market, folk fest, and online store (http://pgcraft.etsy.com) a small fee will be collected (no more than 25%, and probably less) to pay for the wages of the PGCC director (me: this includes email checking, website building, community capacity building, liasing with local stores for your goods, and dedicating my saturdays to the farmer's market, just to name a few!), etsy store fees, and honorariums for workshop leaders as well as workshop supplies.  It is intended that on January 28th the PGCC will be adopted as a program of a local non-profit society (to be named after incorporated) which will ensure accountability for collected funds and a society/program based structure with which to carry the legacy of the PGCC beyond my time residing in the VLA.  For the first year membership to the PGCC will be those who can identify a Prince George, B.C. mailing address (for drop off and pick up of items ease; in year 2, when there is more structure and it looks like the PGCC *will* work, we hope to incorporate those living in communities north of 100 mile and west to the ocean and north to the freezing land of the Yukon.  IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF PG BUT WANT TO PARTICIPATE I ENCOURAGE YOU TO LINK UP WITH ANOTHER CRAFTER TO BE YOUR LIASON; for us, remaining PG oriented for the first year enables us to keep costs lower...but we'll expand, especially if there is interest from along the other northern cooridors).  Okay, I'm rambling now. If you want more information, the PGCraft Collective email is pgcraft@gmail.com

All my love and I'll see you on the 28th at Cafe Voltaire with bells on!
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / men's hoodie and two birds? on: January 14, 2007 06:45:12 PM
at my school, UNBC, there is a P!RG reciprocity shelf and a few months back i grabbed this xL masculine-styled hoodie and loved it (i love hoodies), but it sat in my fabric basket until today when i pulled it out, brought in the shoulder line about, oh, 8 inches (!!) and sewed some pajamashirt fabric in the hood, made the sleeves 3/4, and attached the bird-felt patch i bought in vancouver at the petri dish http://www.thepetridish.ca/index.htm

there's another picture at artificia http://artificia.blogspot.com

20  COOKING / Dessert / organic apple and raspberry crumble pies! on: January 06, 2007 01:17:10 PM

tomorrow we're having a small handful of people over for a potluck and i really wanted to make a crumble pie. basic recipe is "tenderflake" all vegetable shortening pie shells x2. 4 cups of organic apples (ours were previously frozen and prepared from the summer) 2 cups of organic raspberries (also frozen from the summer). i stirred the fruit with 1/4 cup of organic sugar and 2 tbsp of flour. then split it and packed it into the pie shells. then i took almost 1 cup o' margarine and mixed it with about 2-3 cups of 7 grain cereal mix (rye, barley, oat, germ, etc), 2 handfuls of organic flax sees, 2 handfuls of sugar, and 1 handful of pepitas. i mashed that all together with my hands and put it on top of the pies! now they're in the oven (on a cookie sheet! these will be wet pies!). yummmmmmmmm.
