1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Yay for Being Married! -Final pics and Crafts (Image Heavy) on: July 10, 2006 10:00:01 AM
Pshew...I'm excited about being able to start on some swaps after my year long engagement hiatus. We had a great time at the wedding and we received tons of complements on all the DIY stuff! Yay...guests really do notice!
Here's just a few of my DIY projects.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Crafts- Image Heavy on: April 17, 2006 07:26:19 AM
Someone asked for invitation designs so I was inspired to post mine and some other stuff I've got in the works.  There's a lot more to come so I'll just add anything new to this thread too. Let me know what you think!

For my invitations I did all the design work and then sent them to Paper Monkey Press in Berkeley for the letter pressing.

... same with the letter pressed tags for the fans.

Again, I did the design and shipped somewhere else for production– Oneinchround.com
And the table numbers....

... The wreath was printed with my Gocco and cut stencils for the numbers (would've taken A LOT of flash bulbs)

 Wedding projects have taken up the extent of my craftiness the last few months.  There's only two months to go and then I can get back to my regular scheduled crafting!

edit:  Thought I should clarify about the "le cirage is awesome" at the bottom of the pictures...I'm not really that vain, I promise. It's just on there to keep the chicks on the Knot from stealing my pictures w/o credit.  Either that or I'm really into self-confirmation.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Save the Date Cards! Hot off the presses! on: November 29, 2005 09:53:43 AM
I just picked up my save the date postcards from the printer...pretty exciting to see the finished product.  Can't wait to develop crampy hands after addressing them all Tongue

They were designed in Photoshop and MultiAd Creator and are 3.5x5 in.

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Ben Folds Mixed Media on linen on: June 14, 2005 10:51:13 AM
This piece is titled Emaline and is Mixed Media on linen. It is being posted as a shameless promotion for the Ben Folds Swap. Sign up! It will rock! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39304.0

As always comments are welcome (even nonconstrutive ones like "this sucks and I'm not going to tell you why)
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mix Tape Pouch on: June 13, 2005 03:35:16 PM
I love making bags but nothing beats the quick short term commitment of a pouch.  This was a prototype for the pouches I sent out for the Music to Craft By Swap.  Lined...ribbon drawstring...felt appliqué...the usual.  I did have to handstitch the top which made construction last a little longer than I wanted but que sera.  It's the perfect size for tampons and pens and lately I've been using it as a case for my glasses.  Sweet.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Brick Fire Pit on: June 13, 2005 02:13:25 PM
I've been meaning to post this for a while but was waiting till I took a better picture... it doesn't seem like that's going to happen anytime soon, so here it is.  I bought this copper fire bowl a year ago and my boyfriend and I love it.  Before it started getting hot, we used it about three times a week.  The fire always made me a little nervous just sitting on the bare ground so we decided to make a mini patio.  We scavenged the bricks from our downtown and didn't have nearly enough for a patio - even a mini one -  so this is what we came up with. In the picture the mortar hadn't dried so the bricks weren't cleaned off yet...it's pretty dirty too...but it looks awesome.  We were pretty proud of ourselves.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Ben Folds- Rock this Swap! on: May 18, 2005 08:16:10 AM
Would anyone be interested in a Ben Folds Swap?  I don't know how many fans he has on Craftster but I think his lyrics would lend themselves to all kinds of crafting greatness.  His lyrics have always inspired my art and I've done a few pieces directly relating to his songs and I'd love to see how they inspire others too!  I'm really hoping there's some interest around here.
So get ready....Post!
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Help with an ungodly large tire. Any ideas? on: May 03, 2005 08:28:35 AM
I have a humongous tractor tire in the backyard of my rental home.  It didn't use to bother me but now that I've started landscaping in earnest I really need to do something to incorporate it into the environment.  The backyard is very small so it sticks out like the sorest thumb ever and it's too close to the house to be used for compost.  I was just planning on planting flowers or ivies inside but does anyone else have any ideas that are a bit more creative?
BTW, I saw the post about the tire garden and was intrigued but the Lancaster News has already taken down the article

Ha. I just noticed I put this in the completed projects section instead of discussions/questions.  Just thought I'd correct myself before someone else did.
