21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Bench Cushion and Place Settings!! on: August 19, 2005 07:26:33 PM
Here are a couple projects i did today...I am SO EXCITED!! I haven't sewn in years and I figured I would make some pretty simple projects...so I made the napkins and the placemats...I also made the cushion for the bench...it was REALLY HARD because I simply hadn't sewn in so long and I had to figure the best way to do it on my own...no pattern...so...it turned out pretty ok for a first attempt sewing project. I hope you all enjoy these...i sure do!

OH! I bought the napkin holders today and Joann 75% off spring sale...they were 2.49 for four of them and they're so perfect!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! on: August 18, 2005 03:32:01 PM
I'm trying to teach myself to knit with the help of the book  'knitting pretty"...BUT...i simply can't figure out the difference between knit stitch and purl stitch...i THINK i have the knit stitch down ok as it looks like the photos given, however, I'm trying to make a slipper/bootie and can't figure out how to purl. the directions in hte book seem simple enough but when i try it it simply doesn't work. I'm supposed to be doing a knit 1 purl 1 pattern...any suggestions or images that might explain this to me a little better are greatly appreciated!!

I did this collage tonight and am really excited about it! lotsa different papers...new japanese papers, vintage wrapping paper, textured paper, painted paper...and more! There's metallic in some of the flowers but I don't think you can see it in the photos.

anyway...what do you think??

25  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / MILK CRATES on: July 14, 2005 04:10:13 PM
First of all...who doesn't have too many milk crates? I would LOVE to see what the creative people at Craftster could do with an ordinary milk crate rather than the typical crate/plank shelving.

Lamp Shades? Furniture?

anyone else think this would be a great idea??
26  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Portraits on: July 13, 2005 11:02:28 PM
These are two portraits I did from the model...I'm pretty happy with them...I hadn't painted in a really long time so it felt good to be able to express what I saw in front of me so well. I didn't know I loved to paint so much! Now all I want to do is paint. I have big ideas now...and can't wait to get started on them...

any thoughts?
27  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Just some Prints... on: July 13, 2005 07:01:13 PM
I did these last semester in my Printmaking/Intaglio class...I'm super proud of them so I thought I'd show them off a little bit. Any critiques?

28  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Paperdoll illustration on: July 13, 2005 06:52:26 PM

This is a sketch/illustration for a paperdoll that I'm thinking of working on in the near future. This is the beginning idea so I would have to actually do an illustration of her in undergarments and then do some various clothing designs...but I wanted to come up with a good idea of where I wanted to go with her first...anyone like?
