1  Re: Make Me A Reusable Shopping Bag Swap Round 2 - The Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by BlueJeanBaby on: March 16, 2009 11:46:33 AM
I've been meaning to post my bag for so long! (Was Craftster acting up for anyone else last night?)

Anyway, here is the bag that MelCap sent me. I love it! I used it at Michael's yesterday and the check-out girl commented on what a pretty bag it is. Thanks, MelCap!

2  First journal! (super pic heavy!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by BlueJeanBaby on: March 14, 2009 01:42:51 PM
I am SO excited about this. I've been wanting to try journal/book making for a while and yesterday I bought one of those things that your can poke holes through paper with (it looks like a pen...can someone please tell me the proper name for it?) Anyway, I made this little book this morning. It's not perfect but I'm reallllly proud.

The front. (I forgot to sew around the top and bottom of it. Tongue)

The back...how are you supposed to tie off the ends? I didn't know what to do so I just knotted it twice and tied a bow. Wink


Close up of the stitching...you can barely see the thread!

And some messy corners. Anyone have any tips on how to make them less messy and more finished looking? I made the covers by Mod Podging paper to pieces of paperboard. Next time I think I'll try my double-stick tape because it's less messy and holds better than Mod Podge. Any other advice is greatly appreciated!

3  Curtains & Couch Pillows in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by BlueJeanBaby on: March 02, 2009 03:18:25 PM
We're newlyweds, first house, etc. etc. so I was super excited to decorate. I picked Amy Butler's French Wallpaper to do the pillows and the top loops of the curtains. The actual curtains are Amy Butler's solid in linen. (I think it's linen, it might be celery.) Anyway, on to the pics!

I apologize for the bad pics, I couldn't seem to get enough light in here.  Tongue

4  Grocery Tote for the swap...no no no, MelCap! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BlueJeanBaby on: February 23, 2009 02:06:51 PM

I had to put that pic first so the bag wouldn't come up on the home page. I don't want my swap partner to see her bag!

This is for MelCap in the reusable grocery tote swap. It's a little smaller than I wanted but I like it and I hope she does, too!

It's lined in the traditional grocery tote colored cotton but it's totally reversible so if she ever wants to hide the dandelions, she can!

5  I don't make jewelry. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by BlueJeanBaby on: July 26, 2008 08:06:03 PM
I really don't, I sew and I try to knit.

But I decided to make my bridesmaid's jewelry...

The picture's not the best but I think it came out pretty well...what say you?

6  Yet another roll of film in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by BlueJeanBaby on: July 03, 2008 03:02:51 PM
I feel so old school shooting film but I love it! Here's part of a roll that I shot this week. I edited them, of course. Most of them have been cross processed in Picnik.

I'd love to hear your comments & (constructive) criticism!  Smiley

7  My last two photography assignments...really super IMG heavy. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by BlueJeanBaby on: June 09, 2008 05:03:30 PM
I took photo I during the first summer semester and here are two of my assignments and the images that I didn't turn in but I'm still proud of!

These are depth of field, the top image was shot at f-1.8  and the second was f-11

These were done with light painting...a huge PITA but I love the results!

Please let me know what you think!

8  First Photographs! (It's only appropriate that this post is IMG HEAVY.) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by BlueJeanBaby on: May 26, 2008 04:27:41 PM
Well, not my first...I've taken about 346975987 photos in my life but these are the first that I feel should be shown off! They were taken by me and then I edited them in Gimp (I'm just learning Gimp.)

This was taken earlier this month. It was my first flight!

Taken just about a week ago in my front yard.

Last year at the beach down in Hollywood, FL.

Also in Hollywood.

Taken June 2007 in downtown St. Augustine.

And a B&W, also in Hollywood.

Please let me know what you think!  Cheesy

Banana chocolate chip cupcakes with PB frosting!

The recipe...

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 egg whites
2 mashed bananas
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Combine first 4 ingredients.

2. Add sugar and next 3 ingredients; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until blended.

3. Add egg whites and bananas; mix until blended.

4. Fold in choco chips.

5. Spoon into muffin pan and bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

And I cut this in half for the frosting: http://www.recipezaar.com/138085
