my stuffie also needs a name. im not sure but i know he is male. he is also a giraffe, but a really small one. i think he was the runt!
awww he's so TINY! you should call him Shackles. for no good reason. or how about gordon? ahh that little guy makes my day. i heart giraffes, especially when they're wee and fuzzy and precious, like your little guy.

oookay. here's mine.

as you can see, he can't seem to sit without touching himself, the little scamp.

i have another smaller giraffe around here that i might substitute cuz this guy's got beans in his bottom, so he's a bit heavy. i don't want to discriminate, but you know.
they're basically the same idea though, except the smaller guy has bendy legs. this one's just smooshy, so he won't be doing much besides sitting with his hands in his area.
i haven't named him, but he was christened "Hightops" by Ty. i'm not too keen on that. anyway. i'm open to suggestions. for some reason right now, i'm leaning towards Crank. i'm kinda likin that. but anyway.
sorry for all the wordy posts, i'm very very caffienated right now.

23  What? Roman Shades? Sorta, yeah! (photo-nutso) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by thevaticant on: August 26, 2005 12:16:52 PM
So... since moving from the 3rd floor of an apartment building, down to the first, I was in dire need of some curtains/blinds for my bedroom window. Because people don't need to be seeing my personal...erm... areas... Shocked
I was figuring since I'm ridiculously cheap AND poor, I'd have to figure out something "thrifty"...
For the first month I lived here, I had this sick window covering.. it was like laundry bags and some netting type stuff tacked up around the window. It was HOTT stuff, obviously.
But since I got nothin better to do with my time, I figured I'd be able to make something less embarassing. So after a lovely breakfast at some pancake/waffle place, I went to the Home Depot and scored some cheap dowels... one thick-ish one, and three skinny ones, and then went home to rest for 8 hours... well. not really. but anyway. it was 8 hours later before I hauled my bottom across the street to the walmart. I got the world's most lovely fabric (or so I was told by some random woman who stopped me to gush over it), and some yellow ribbon stuff and I made theeeese:
(pardon the grainy photos... thats what you get when you take pictures with a video camera..)

anyway. that one there, you can see the strange window, that only opens on the top corner, and since its always open, i just hung the one blind lower, but if i feel like it, there are brackets at the top so i can move it up (both shades are the same size..)
and there's one folded up a bit...
thats the closeup of the fabric... its like a champagne-y/goldy/ivory-y kinda deal.
and here's a picture of the ribbon, you can kinda see its like little yellow squares...

so yeah.
shades! booyah!
now all i have to do is make a curtain for the livingroom, so i can take down the (eep) SHOWER CURTAIN!!
anyway. thanks for lookin!

here's mine... you can't see the netting underneath very well. but its yellow, and i enjoy it, even though its very scratchy... there's also a giraffe patch on it..
oh yes. the hemmed part is terrible. i know. i don't have a sewing machine, or patience.

oh. and i also wore it outside and didn't have *too* many problems with it blowing upwards... there were a few times i had to clutch akwardly at myself... but other than that, it was good...

25  Re: bathroom window woes in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by thevaticant on: June 24, 2005 07:36:44 AM
if you're looking to do a huge reno, you should try glass blocks, as per this scan of a bathroom remodelling book i took out from the library:

(dear authors of "Reinvent your Bathroom", please don't sue me.)
if you don't want the trouble, just put a regular vinyl (i think) roll up shade in there for now... thats what we had in our old apartment's bathroom. sure, it was ridiculous if you tried to roll it up just a little bit, and it flew all the way up, and you were clutching at yourself to conceal your *ahem* areas... but its easier/cheaper to install..

27  disappointingly boring lamp in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by thevaticant on: June 13, 2005 08:55:45 PM
hello everyone!
this is my first proper post (i've replied a few times though) and i must say, like many many others, i'm addicted to craftster. sigh. i need a job.
i've got this terribly boring lamp... and i'm wondering if anyone could help me figure out ways to spruce it up.
its a floor lamp, so its about 5'6" tall, and ... well. here's a picture.

if that worked, you'll see it. its not bad... but anyway. all the lights swivel and point and the switches are at the top part of each lamp "section"
i thought i'd put a few "requirements" down to help...
firstly: its gotta remain incredibly functional, because some dingbat built all these apartments, but didn't put lights in the rooms...
secondly: the lightbulb areas get very hot, and i'm quite paranoid about fire, so melty-burny things are probably a no go.
thirdly: it'll have to also remain somewhat mobile, because we move a lot, and i have to move the lamp around a lot to different areas of the room if i'm needing some extra light...
sorry if i'm being picky... i don't want someone to give me this great idea that is so impossible that i'd cry and do it anyway, and ruin our only lamp.
well. it wouldn't be as dramatic as that, but it would be pretty sad.
i'm open to most "styles" also... or lack of styles too, i imagine.
i'd love to hear some ideas... cuz you kids are so darn crafty!
