91  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / buttons cuff on: May 16, 2004 08:19:11 PM
i originally started this as a project to make a bag, but the buttons are too darned small...so i aborted this at cuff size and ordered some bigger buttons.  i think it's pretty cute, actually, but i am looking forward to finishing the original project once i get the bigger buttons.  Smiley

92  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / cool resource of kid's lit for decoupage, etc. on: May 06, 2004 10:53:35 AM
i think this site is pretty cool for the literature, itself, but it also includes scans of the covers of hundreds of kids books that would be great for decoupage, i think.
anyway, just thought i'd give a heads up.
93  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / hot glue guns on: April 26, 2004 04:40:16 PM
okay, so my hot glue gun was a totally cheap--geez, maybe a dollar?  i can't even remember--item and it does the job, but it basically just oozes hot glue the whole time...if i popped for an expensive hot glue gun is it enough better to make the price worth it?  i've just sort of accepted my glue gun and dealt with it, but if my life could be improved for ten bucks, i might be into it.
what do you think?
94  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / $12.99 ikea toybox on: April 25, 2004 08:18:39 PM
picked up this toybox this afternoon--just couldn't resist.  i decoupaged it with an old deck of chinese horoscope cards i've had forever with a little gold paint in the modgepdge...then painted the wood parts with a cheap-ass combo of blue/green/sparkly gold paint.  the shiny gold made it hard to take flash pictures, but i think it's pretty cool.

(notice modge podge on the messy floor beneath...)

sorry if it's overkill on the pictures.  i'm just happy i could follow a project through to its fruition.  lately i'm too easily distracted.
must be spring fever!
95  California / California: Central / SCRAP--sf bay area on: March 29, 2004 11:44:50 AM
hey out there--if you aren't familiar with SCRAP http://www.scrap-sf.org/home.htm, you really should be--tons of free and super cheap crazy stuff for you, just waiting to be embraced...paper, fabric, wood and tons of other random items.
and, if you ARE familiar with SCRAP, you should know that they are reducing funding of the project to NOTHING next year--now is a great time to voice your love of the place and show your support with a letter to the mayor or a bug in some personality's ear who might help to save this great resource.
just a thought!
96  California / California: Central / heavy-duty vinyl pouches in SF on: March 18, 2004 11:51:20 AM
hey there--
i posted this offer elsewhere and no one took me up on it, but i thought i would try again.  i have some very heavy weight clear vinyl laminating pouches that are about 15/20 or something...can't really remember right now.  anyway, i have a lot of them and would be willing to share if anyone is around in the area and has a need.  just message me and we can set something up for you to get them.
97  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / anatomy chart box on: March 14, 2004 11:37:52 AM
i should have been working on the unbirthday swap, the deco swap and/or the atc swap.  instead, i decided my trusty badge-a-minit deserved some swanky new digs:

all the images are from an anatomy chart supply catalog i got at school.  i'm in love with it, though for some reason i used the jankiest black paint ever around the corners.  i think i'm going to cover it with some sporty grosgrain ribbon or something.
anyway, random post.  just thought i would share a different type of body for a change.  
98  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / porn-by-numbers...just so very proud! on: March 08, 2004 06:24:55 PM
okay, i know you might be sick of seeing it, but today it all came together and i just had to show off a little.  god, i love it when an idea works the way i want it to work...

the little colored packet has the test tubes of paint in it, actually, but i put the other test tubes in the picture, too, because, well, test tubes are cool!
thank you for indulging me--

100  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my filmstrip lampshade on: February 21, 2004 03:08:18 PM
i'm in love with my lampshade (even though it's a fairly ugly lamp), but it was a pain in the ass because i started in on it before i had fully thought it out.  i should have bought a plain tube frame and just applied the filmstrips to it, but i instead sewed all the filmstrips together and then realized that they wouldn't happily make a cone shape, so them i had to figure out how to make the shade from scratch, more or less.  
old educational filmstrips are so cool.  i've also made slides out of them and done a ton of bitchin' polaroid slide transfers with them, including an entire series devoted to carl sagan's cosmos on filmstrip.  Smiley
