1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / NES Power Up Mushroom on: November 07, 2006 03:46:46 PM
This is the first in a soon to be series of characters from Super Mario Bros 3.

I made a promise to show these little guys as soon as I had them finished, but that was months ago.  I've only had time now.  I am sooo excited with how he turned out.

I've got to apologize for the awful pictures, my camera is broken.  I am lucky it works at all.  


All that being said, what are your thoughts?
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Too Fat to Fly Elephant - UPDATE! on: July 23, 2006 09:58:24 PM
I get to see my niece tomorrow, for the first time in a couple of months.  I miss the little rugrat so badly, so I made her this chubby little elephant with wings too small for his extra weight.

i am in love with him.  But what do you think?

Okay, so i made the fat elephant a fat girlfriend or sister, or whatever.  For the other niece.

and here is a butt shot.

and the wings...

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paramore Tee into Messenger Bag/Tote on: June 25, 2006 08:56:36 PM
So I had this tshirt, never worn, I never really liked the color I guess.  So anyway, I got bored tonight and in about 45 minutes I had this:





I am pretty pumped about this one.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Vintage 1920's Clutch! (Pics) on: June 18, 2006 09:30:06 AM
I created this pattern about a month ago but just now finished the actual clutch. The clutch is lined with silk and it is curiously sturdy, I think that is my favorite part.




What do you think?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Hook/Knitting Needle Storage Solution! (Image Heavy) on: February 16, 2006 11:44:31 AM
I sat down over my 6 week Winter Break and thought, "Shannon, you have so many needles and hooks but no way to keep them all together."  I needed something small and easy to take places.  I never leave for a weekend without at least one skein and 3 hooks.

So i sat at my brand spankin new sewing machine with some betty boop fabric and POOF!

And then my Coici comes over.  All of my coici's craft, it is a sick obsession that is in our genes.  She hands me an envelope FILLED with those little squishy things for pencils, you remeber in second grade when your hand would cramp?

I say, "Coici Cheryl, what do I do with these?"

She says, "Oh young one, put them on your crochet hooks and experience the wonders."


NO MORE HAND CRAMPS!  I swear to some greater being this is the best idea ever.

happy crafting!

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / last minute afghans... (images) on: January 15, 2006 09:49:09 AM
...are the best.  i needed to make something amazing for my boyfriend's mom for her birthday.  i had one day.  five hours later i completed this little diddy...

and a close up of the stitch....

i hate tassels, so i decided that for a border i would have some fun.  i played around a bit and made a cutsy little ruffle.  needless to say, she loves it.  blue is her favorite color.  i used hand-me-down yarn and 5 hours.  best ever.

this is my next creation (in progress):

what do you think?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wrist Warmers From Knitty.com on: December 29, 2005 01:18:48 PM
there were my first shot at knitting in the round.  I'd say they turned out cute.  I found the pattern at knitty.com last spring.  I'd definitely recommend it to anyone learning to use double-pointed needles.  I am pretty proud of them.

excuse the picture, it is my livejournal 'friends-only' entry.

now I am making some fingerless mitten-gloves.  They rule.  So much easier than I could have imagined.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Adirondack style Cd Holder? Please help... on: December 28, 2005 08:59:10 AM
My wonderful boyfriend and I are moving into a tiny one-bedroom apartment in the fall.

This is my dilemna.  He has probably 300 dvds and 900 cds.  nerd?  yes.  he has three different game systems, i don't know what they are all called, and tons of games for those as well.

The goofball is a park ranger in the Adirondack Mountains during the summer and has an obsession with that fireside "woodsy" look.  The problem, he spends every paycheck at this little store in the mountains buying oh... $200 quilts with mooses on them and... $300 lamps that look like trees.  There is more, but you probably would not believe me.  So, as you can assume money is tight.  (cough cough dumbass cough cough)

I need to create some sort of... cd/dvd/video game holder.  (i was thinking wall hanging, but maybe a bookshelf of sorts)  The apartment is a miniature one bedroom.  Too small to even move in my big bed, so we have a futon.

trust me, i have surfed this forum for two days straight.  Nothing.  he won't let me make it "trendy."  It has to be "mountainy."

so, help me out.  any ideas for a CD holder that looks like a freaking tree? 

i have tons of Saranac bottle caps (planning on making a table top... saranac is the brew of the adirondacks for any non-yankees.)  I would like to somehow incorporate those and make the shelf or what be it as natural as possible.

thank you for reading all of that, if you survived.  thank you for any input, in advance.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mens Scarf - Pictures on: November 21, 2005 11:57:30 AM
I finally finished this striped scarf I have been working on for my beloved boyfriend.  It is a really basic and easy pattern.  k3p2 even rows, p3k2 odd rows.  i did 14row stripes, but you can do whatever you want.
