1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Salvaged Table on: February 22, 2008 07:50:07 AM
My musical college son needs furniture so I picked up this table for $2 and painted it to suit his love of music.  I am addicted to painting furniture!!!
Not sure I remember how to post pics here but here I go:

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / handpainted denim on: September 17, 2007 07:45:06 AM
I wanted to try my hand at painting on clothing.  These denim outfits were so boring so I decided to paint them up into wearable works of art.  They even held up through my 'wash' test, although I used cold water and hung to dry.

If anyone wants to try it I mixed my acrylic paints with a fabric medium about 1/2 to 1/2.

3  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / painted Canvas shoes on: September 17, 2007 07:03:14 AM
I had to try my hand at painting shoes too and found it a lot of fun.  When I wear them out I love to see people take second looks when they notice them.  Must do more!
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Honest opinion wanted on: May 27, 2005 10:18:23 PM
I have been very fortunate to sell a lot of my paintings.  But I am confused because my 2 fav. which are more surrealist and different from my usual folk art style have attracted no buyers even though I have listed them a few tmes on Ebay.  Someone please give me your honest opinion if you can think of a reason why?  I can take criticism lol...np
  OOPS sorry kind of big
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make a dress form? on: May 25, 2005 09:53:17 AM
How to make a dress form or mannequin?  I have searched everyhwere for one and the only ones I find are so expensive, mainly because of the cost to ship. Has anyone ever made one or any ideas how to?   Wasn't sure what thread to ask this question on.  Desperately need one!!
6  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Where do I find? on: May 23, 2005 06:45:34 AM
I'm still relatively new so forgive me if this has already been suggested but I don't see it anywhere on the forum.  I would love to see a section titled maybe..."Where do I find it?"  A place where crafters could ask others where to find a particular thing whether it's clip art, crafting websites, material etc.  Is this already on here somewhere? Huh
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / revamped furniture on: May 22, 2005 02:39:31 PM
My daughter needed a kitchen table when she was trying to furnish her first apartment.  With a college students budget money was tight.  I had an old faux wood table that I wasn't using to I got out my paints and went wild.  Here is the result. She and her friends love it!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine/Cookbook holder on: May 22, 2005 06:03:13 AM
I hate to throw anything out that I can find a use for.  In my house we are big cereal consumers and it seems I have a box daily to recylce.  So recycle I did.  This is a common project I'm sure but for those who haven't heard of it...here it is:

-Take a cereal box and cut an angle. Just go by my picture and you'll have no problem.  Then finish it in any medium you want.  I took plain brown paper bags, crumpled them up and glued them on like in decoupage.  Then I rubbed a light brown paint or you could use stain to get the dark tones.  I finished with a couple of coats of varathane and that was it.  Cost nothing.  Here is a pic of one I made years ago that is still holding up well

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Need an idea for hostess gift on: May 21, 2005 12:59:53 PM
I am going to a 'toga' party with my boyfriend and I will be meeting people I've never met before.  I'd like to take a bottle of wine to his friend the hostess, but would like to make a wine bag for it and I am trying to come up with ideas to be creative.  Like maybe draping it so it looks like it is wearing a toga with leaves and fake grapes hanging down?  Anyone have and ideas and if you have and ideas for toga costumes, would love those too!!  Thanks!
