1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / the "missing my man (or woman)" swap! on: July 01, 2006 10:54:45 PM
this idea was inspired by the singles swap for those of us who are temporarily alone.   it could be anything from little reminders, to pampering kits, to shrines (although that may be kinda creepy.. Cheesy ).  anyway, the purpose would be to make the separation a little more bareable.
any ideas?
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / something subtle to remind him of me on: May 29, 2006 11:37:09 PM
my long distance relationship is getting...longer.  And i wont be able to see my boy for over 2 years! aarrrrrgh.  that's a long time.  anyway, he gave me a gorgeous necklace that i wear every day and i love having the reminder.  so, i'd like to make him something small that he could wear or see daily to remind him of me. 
i'm not against making jewelry for him, although i dont know how much he would want to wear a necklace - it'd have to be pretty manly (and plus, that's copying) and a ring may flip his mom out and seem like too much of a committment.  he'll be in india for the two years so maybe that could be something helpful?  i'm really at a loss. 

i looked at some of the other boyfriend posts on this and i like the pillowcase idea and stuff like that.  i would love to do something like a scrapbook but unfortunately that doesnt work very well for us since we practically never see each other - so not many pictures.  (my fav. one of us is the one on my profile - in case you were wondering Cheesy.

anways, any help would be greatly appreciated.  i've got a lot of time to make something, so that is not a problem, and i'm willing to spend a *bit* of money.
thanks y'all!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sexy sporty on the outside, but oh! just sexy on the inside on: May 15, 2006 12:30:16 AM
i was all excited about this bag until i showed it to my grandma saying, "look! i made this!" and she responded with her nice grandmotherly-cover-up voice saying, "oh i thought so...".  yeah... now i'm not sure if i have decided if it is cute and random or hideously ugly.  there is a lot more stich detailing on the straps and such with contrasting thread.  

anyway, i had a very good time making it and using up some fabric scraps - OH! and the recon part of it.  the red puma fabric is from a tshirt and the satin on the insides is from a belly dancing costume i had lying around...

i was thinking about a tutorial but it is just a regular hobo bag with stuff sewn and painted on, so it isn't that difficult.  if you have any questions let me know.  you'll probably get a fast response because it's my first post (ive procrastinated for long enough) and i'll probably be checking back all the time. Cheesy



inside (my friend made the comment about this being the hidden sexy part of the bag - hence the title of the post)

"hi i'm jill! i'm sexy! and i made this bag!" (another quote from that friend...sarah you make me chuckle!)
