1  Re: TUTORIAL: Straight Sided Triangular Cosmetic Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pvwon on: July 02, 2007 10:21:05 AM
Well, I've joined in.  I made this for a friend:

to match this, which I made for her daughter:

I loved the tutorial for this make-up bag, and since I had leftover fabric from McCalls 5367, posted here
I made the make-up bag.  I can't wait to make one of these for myself.

2  McCall's 5367-Infant Dress, hat and panties in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by pvwon on: July 02, 2007 10:16:17 AM

I made this dress, hat and panties as a gift for a friend's baby.  I love this style of dress for little girls!!  The pattern was very easy to follow, and while it is from the "Sew and Save" line, it was easy but not very quick.

I hope you like it.

3  Kitchen renovation (before and after pictures) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by pvwon on: April 11, 2007 08:09:24 PM
Here is a before and after picture of our kitchen renovation.  (Larger image here.)  We are completely re-doing the house my husband bought before we got married.  After this phase is complete we will be putting on an addition.

So far in the kitchen we have opened the space to the living room, installed corrugated metal ceilings with rope light behind the crown moulding, re-sheetrocked, painted, installed new light fixtures, stripped and re-stained the cabinets, and had granite countertops installed.

We still need to build the cabinet doors and spiff up the cabinet interiors, but the bulk is complete.

There are more pictures and details on my blog.

4  Is painting the outside of your house "exterior decorating?" in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by pvwon on: April 11, 2007 11:27:03 AM
My husband and I are renovating our house, and getting ready to put on an addition. He bought the house in 2001 and started renovating it soon after. With all of the renovations, the exterior looked a little busy with brick, vinyl siding and wooden siding. To remedy this, we decided to paint the whole exterior.

Since everyone loves a before and after, I have two. The before pictures were taken soon after he purchased it and the afters were taken at the end of last month.

You can click here for a larger view, but this is the front.

And here's the back. Here it is larger.

Paint colors are on my blog.

I hope to post some mid-renovation kitchen pictures soon, but that will be in interior decorating.

5  "That's the way we became the..." Save the Date Cards! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by pvwon on: March 15, 2006 02:43:37 PM

I thought that the concept of "Brady Bunch" would be fun, since we are melding our "dog families."

I'm hoping that I can find some better pictures of my fiance and me, because I'm not very fond of these two.

I used PhotoShop Elements to create the front and then saved the image and put it into Publisher.  Please ignore the "I can't spell" red underline under the web address on the front of the card.  I found the Brady Bunch-esque font at DaFont.com.

What do y'all think?

6  Re: Love your wedding? Then show off your photos here! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by pvwon on: January 24, 2006 04:55:08 AM
So I got engaged on Christmas day and thought that I would post a picture of my ring that dear fiance picked it out all by himself.

My dad was in England when I got engaged so I came up with a crafty way to let him know.  I emailed the picture below to him.  Of course it took him four days to reply because he couldn't open the attachment.  All the while I just assumed that he was angry about my fiance not "asking" for my hand.  Silly me!

Here is a picture of a close-up of the ring.

I have really enjoyed this thread as an inspiration for some creative ideas for my August wedding.

7  Days of the Week... not just for panties anymore! in Needlework: Completed Projects by pvwon on: May 11, 2005 07:54:02 AM
Here are some Days of the Week dish towels I made for my mom for Mother's Day.  We both grew up going to Camp Winnataska, a summer camp with lots of singing, and the idea came from a song that we sing there.

Both together

Monday's Close-up

Tuesday's Close-up

I got some great advice in this topic before I started.  The images are clip art that I printed out and transfered to flour sack cloth with dressmaker's transfer paper.  After I finished the emboidery I cut them out and machine sewed them (white around the edge, black machine feather stitch inside the blanket stitch) to some lovely towels from Martha's everyday collection.  They were a big hit with Mom.

FYI: Here's the song

Today is Monday,
Today is Monday.
Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish the same to you.

Today is Tuesday,
Today is Tuesday.
Tuesday string beans, Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish the same to you.

Today is Wednesday,
Today is Wednesday,
Wednesday roast beef, Tuesday string beans, Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish to same to you.

Today is Thursday,
Today is Thursday,
Thursday soup, Wednesday roast beef, Tuesday string beans, Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish to same to you.

Today is Friday,
Today is Friday,
Friday fish, Thursday soup, Wednesday roast beef, Tuesday string beans, Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish to same to you.

Today is Saturday,
Today is Saturday,
Saturday payday, Friday fish, Thursday soup, Wednesday roast beef, Tuesday string beans,
Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish to same to you.

Today is Sunday,
Today is Sunday,
Sunday church, Saturday payday, Friday fish, Thursday soup, Wednesday roast beef, Tuesday
string beans, Monday wash day.
All my loving brothers I wish to same to you.

Each of the cabins is a different day of the week and it turns lunch into a screaming match.  Ever so much fun, by the way.

8  Interface Flor Reviews in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by pvwon on: December 15, 2004 08:20:31 AM
A question to all of you craftsters out there...

Has anyone used the Interface Flor products?  I saw mentions of it in the posts  here and here, but I want some of you to share your experiences, if anyone has any.  I was thinking of this for my dining room shown below, now that Lowe's carries it.  My dining room is 12 x 27 (yes, it is oddly proportioned). I have since ripped up the rust colored shag carpeting only to find 1/3 of the room with faux pebble sheet linolium and 2/3 with rust colored vinyl tile.  The old 1980's pizza place light fixture is also gone.  (It fell on my head!)  I have a large (8-10) person dining table and china cabinet at the end of the room pictured in the top photo.  The second photo show the end of the room that has an entry to the kitchen (opening on the left) and the den (the door on the right)   As you can see (sort of, my camera is old) the room has lots of natural light.  What do y'all think.  Is interface flor the way to go?

10  Re: Shaving Cream Cards-- MUST TRY! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by pvwon on: August 13, 2004 07:25:45 AM
I just came across this thread today and had to add my two cents.  I am a director at a summer camp and this is one of the craft projects that the campers do, only they do it on those cheepy pressed cardboard boxes that you can get a Michael's/Hobby Lobby/Walmart.  Everyone loves to make them, from the younger campers to the older boys.  I guess that the boys love it because they can play with the shaving cream after they get done crafting. 

They even did this this year with the special needs campers this summer.  Here are some pictures.

I think that also you can use a spray polyurethane to seal the boxes and give them a glossy finish.

Just another idea for this ultra-versitile and ultra-age-friendly technique.
