21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Window Paintings on: January 29, 2006 09:33:05 AM
Background: well my mom was taking all of the windows in the upstairs out and replacing them (i'm crafty, she's handy- it works out well sometimes) and i asked her to let me keep them. She did, being the mother of mine that she is and i decided that they could be "art". i also had these ugly shades over the windows in the basement (where i live) so i figured it'd be really cool if i could do something different and slightly more original. that's where the windows came into play
take a look!:

(over one of my windows and this pic displays part of my bottle collection)

(over the other window in my room- in the de stijl style!)

(my other one in my posession- i was inspired by the cleveland botanical gardens)

i also made another one for my grandma for chirstmas. she kept raving about it- i was so pleased she liked it. it was from the chronicles of narnia.

tell me what you think please!
22  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / vinyl records on: January 04, 2006 06:38:06 PM
so this isn't TOTALLY crafting per say- but i do listen to music constantly when i do craft so maybe it is- but i live in the cleveland area and would love to know where i could get some good vinyl records. i'm just a student so i'm not rich, but i'm sure there has to be a good place to start looking around here. i got a record player for christmas, and realized i only own one record. (my mom has some but her music tastes and my music tastes... differ greatly) i'm looking for a place to find music such as old rock and roll or indie ( if those kinds of bands put out records for some readon).
p.s. if anyone wanted to give their old vinyls to an appreciative girl...
 Roll Eyes

haha. just joking
23  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / White Stripes.... In Cleveland!!!! (does anyone have a good stencil?) on: August 30, 2005 01:59:01 PM
yay, i'm going to see the White Stripes. Jack AND Meg Will Be Feet In Front On ME!... well maybe yards... but you get the point. is anyone else going? Does anyone have a good stencil? i want to make a t-shirt or something, but i don't really want to use the umbrella one because lots of people have done that.and i don't have photoshop... so i can't make myself one,even tho i have a collection of WS pictures that'd make good stencils. oh well. reply if you please.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink silk/ t-shirt dress on: July 20, 2005 09:23:17 AM
so last night... ya.
i had been inspired by some "punk t-shirt dress" things. this didn't turn out like those, but i still kinda like it. i had some pink silk on hand that my grandma gave me. i had a "miss Jr. America" t-shirt on hand. this is what came of it. it's kinda rediculous... especally because i'm grounded and i'm not allowed to go anywhere. but that's a good reason to wear it in my oppinnion, who needs real reasons these days?
anyways here it is:

the skirt is a lot of fun

go ahead and tell me what you think if you like because i'd like some contact with the outside world durring these lonely house-bound days. lol
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my t-shirt patchwork skirt (ohh that rhymes!) on: July 18, 2005 11:18:25 AM
so i go on and off of having an obsession with making "patchwork" skirts. i have mostly old t-shirts that i cut up and sewed together, but the flowery ones used to be my aunt's curtains. lol. anyways, this is my latest one : hazza!

 this is from the side- sorry about the bluryness (this is actually one of my better ones- i had an odd case of camera shake)
and this is how i can put the skirt on

it has snaps and a little flap that comes over.

i kinda like it. i might actually wear it ( i say that because half the time i make things then don't do anything with them)
anyways, comments and reassurence are welcome, or suggestions or constructive criticism or w/e. lol

26  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / Coventry Road by Cleveland on: June 29, 2005 03:25:40 PM

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / dress or skirt? on: June 29, 2005 03:17:11 PM
ok kids, i have a dress that i bought at a thrift store. i love the fabric but i hated the top part of the dress. i therefore sewed the top just straight. i was going to re-attach the straps when it occurred to me that the fabric might also make a lovely skirt. to make it a dress i need to make it fit better and put the straps back on. to make it a skirt i need to put some elastic or buttons to make it fit well around my waist. i just cant decide tho. opinions please.

(as a skirt)

ok ya'll, i got some picture fraims at a rummage sale, and i was originally just going to paint them black (their all wood), but i have decided that painting them with a design or decorate them some other way would be nicer. does anyone have a suggestion or idea?
