1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / We are Homeowers! But... we've got alot of work today. Fire / Soot Damage on: September 18, 2007 08:14:01 AM
We've purchased my uncles home which has some firedamage down stairs. The only damage to the main level is soot from the fire, but we hear its going to be a pain to clean.
What I basically would love to know, from anyone who may have done this before, is how on earth to clean it.
The bottom level has 2 bedrooms, full bath, walk in closet, laundry room, and garage. Most of the bedrooms downstairs will be completly gutted and start from scratch.
Other than the door frame at the stars, the upstrais has no fire damage other than some pretty thick soot.
The upstairs is 2 bedrooms, kitchen, master bath, living room, and dining room.
I beleive the entire house is about 3,000 square feet.

We got it for a steal and simply could not pass it up as it is in  on a corner lot, a historical part of our town surounded by big beautiful old houses.

The walls are mostly plaster and we need to know the best way to clean them, the appliance, bathroom fixtures, ceelings, and the wall to wall hardwood floors.

any help would be much appreciate!
2  ASIA / Japan / Can someone translate this for me? on: May 02, 2007 09:01:55 AM
I'm in love with the show Ninja warrior... but i'm wondering what the japanese title of the show 'sasuke' litterally translates into.

Also if anyone knows how i can write a fan letter to nagano i would be very thankful.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ramen Noodle Zippered Pouch on: April 09, 2007 07:11:25 PM
Ok so I can't claim this idea as originally mine, because i think i saw it on etsy or somewher elike that. But I knew i just had to make one when i saw it.

Oh and I enjoyed the ramen noodles right after i made it! Took about 15 minutes to make. (the bag, and the noodles!)

It has clear vinyl on the outside to protect the wrapper.

what'd you folks think about it?
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Couple of wallets on: January 01, 2007 09:26:46 PM
So i've decided that my wallet making ability blows, and im still not convinced otherwise at this point. So i made one last nigh, which was horrible. I made another today that is ok i guess, but still gastly. I think the problem lies in my lack of measuring, but measuring requires so much effort. ah well. Its based upon several of the small wallets i've seen on her. I think someone sells something almost identical to this, so i would never do that with it, but i wanted one for myself and a friend of mine that i knew would appreciate it.
What do you think?
I still can't get my stitching clean and the edges are wonky. Any advice on that?

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Laptop Case / Bag and Sleeve on: September 20, 2006 04:27:12 PM
This thing was a pain to make, and i don't think i'll be doing anything like it again, but i do think it turned out pretty well.

What do you think?

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Nurse Purse *giggles* on: June 26, 2006 07:25:24 PM
So I was recently accepted into nursing school and start this August. I've already paid for all my needles, syringes, blood pressure cuffs, and all that other clinical stuff that i'll have to take with me to the hospital and labs, but it didn't come with a case for it all. So I, the crafty devil i am, decided that i had to have one cooler than all the other potential nurses.

So this is what i came up with.

The only thing is that it turned out a little bigger than i wanted. I guess it is ok since I can carry a clip board and notebook if i like, but i was trying to make something kinda smaller.

I can't decide whether I want to keep it.
What do you guys think of it? Think it will be to risque to take to the hospital?
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Can you make me some tags for my stuff? on: June 17, 2006 08:29:53 PM
I am interested in trading either crafted good, or commisioning someone to make some tags for my work.

Those basic iron on ribon tags would work, and i already have a graphic.

I would want the tag to be able to folk over and be blank on the side, so that i can sew them into seems, rather than around the edges, you know?

This is what i want the graphic to be.

and here are some examples of my work, in case you wanted to trade. I can make a hell of a purse.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New purse with losta pockets and funness! **photo heavy** on: June 17, 2006 07:40:41 PM
So I eventually find something wrong with every purse i make for myself.

This is the newest addition of the collection. I like this one because it has a pocket for everything specifically.
A pocket for pens, camera, pda, cell phone, and keys... everything else just floats in the bottom.

I also notice that the more purses i make the bigger they seem to get. I think i just draw stuff in there.

I like to have stuff to keep me occupied if im out and get bored. A friend of mine said i reminded her of the girl in  the breakfast club who just dumped all the stuff in her purse out on the table. Well, yea i've done that before to break up the silence at a dull moment or two.

Without further ado, the pictures!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / So I made this Checkered Wallet on: June 06, 2006 10:29:15 PM
And actually don't need it. I'm thinking of starting an etsy store, but i dont think this would be good enough to make the cut. I plan to add a stencil to the outside.

What do you guys think of it. (i didn't take a picture, but it opens long ways on the side, for cash and such)

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Good golly... Finally Finished my First Quilt! on: March 07, 2006 11:19:40 AM
Very simple, and didn't take too long. But it cost way more to make in time and in money than i thought it would.
All i have to say is that baby better love and cherish it... or ill have to go steal it away.

First time quilting... didn't mean for the quilt lines to be wavy, but they were, so i just went with it.
It's a tad smaller than crib size and i think will work well for a boy or girl (since they don't know which one yet) I figured i'd better go ahead and make it while i was motivated.

All together it probably took me 6 hours... not too bad i don't think.
Completed it in about a week.

Coments are always welcome and greatly appreciated.

first two show more accurate color.
I used cotton batting
