61  School/Creative work tables. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kayster on: January 29, 2008 04:07:12 PM
I'm renting a house with my friends during my last few semesters of college.  (small yippee for me graduating this coming December!)

I have a small room to fit everything I own.  This space also needed to accommodate my school and creative needs.  SO I got my dad and boyfriend, the two boys that love me most in the world, to make me these awesome desks.  And I FINALLY painted them.

So here is how it happened.

I cut this tree design out of freezer paper and ironed it on my desks.

***Here is the mistake that I made, when I was getting ready to paint the desks white I opened the window on the coldest day that Southeast Missouri has had all year. It snowed later that day.  It made the paper curl up off the table....NO GOOD, so I painted over it anyway.

and this is what happened.

PS.. I made this pillow case and duvet cover

The left side I do my homework.  It has all my books on it.

The right side I have my sewing machine, inspiration board, sewing books, readymade mags.  You know the essentials.

Let me know if you like it or if you don't!

PS.  I designed these tables to fit perfectly in my room.

I just sold my first item on my etsy shop to a stranger and I'm really excited about it.

I know it isn't even that original or anything like that.  I have a lot more crafty and original things in my shop.  But hey, this was the one thing that sold to a stranger. (My sisters bought the rest)

63  8 x 8 scrapbook pages for mom's 50th BIRTHDAY in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by Kayster on: November 18, 2007 01:06:31 PM
For my mother's 50th birthday all 4 of her kids, me included, are making her an 8x8 scrapbook.  I think everyone else in my family will do really sentimental things so I took a different route.

The first spread I did was about the red-hat-society women.  I've been joking with my mom for years to join.  (She is super trendy and cool and doesn't even want to admit she is 50, so the idea of it is hilarious.)

The second spread I did was about us.  My mom and I are very similar.  We look more alike than anyone else in my family.  We are thin and tall and everyone else is short and not so thin.  We sew and are crafty.  We are interested in fashion and writing.  We are very similar people and everyone knows it!

The last one I did I think is just funny.  We did something similar to a scrapbook 6 months ago when my dad turned 50.  So when I was looking through all the pictures I told my siblings that we should make a  book just about mom's hair, something like the 50 hairstyles of Angie.  So I at least made a spread about it.

Let me know what you think.  This is one of my first times scrapbooking and definitely my first time doing it for someone else.

64  She's Just a CARE BEAR!!!!! in Halloween Costumes by Kayster on: October 31, 2007 11:32:17 AM
So I'm a conservative kid and I made this

Out of 2 of these

They were 5 bucks each at walmart.  I needed an extra one to make the hood and the ears.  The ears are hard to see but I think they looked really good.  I shortened the sleeves and took the entire thing in.  The only thing that I didn't change was the neckline.  I used freezer paper to do the bedtime bear emblem on the belly.  It is on white jersey from a tshirt that I cut out.

HOpe you enjoy.

I'm generally a very conservative kid so I wanted a costume that covered up a lot of me.

I'm kind of a anti "halloween is an excuse to wear your underwear in public" person.
I made this:

66  Because I love him... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kayster on: February 12, 2007 09:17:46 PM
So my boyfriend made this image of himself on the computer by playing around with a photo of himself..

He loves it and thinks it would be HIL_AIR_E_US if I made him a tshirt with that image on it.

I kept saying no.  Not for his birthday in September, not for Christmas...  But I surprised him on our Valentines Day Date which was last Saturday..  I told him I baked him a cake.

That's our initials together.  My first successful double layer cake with no help, thank you very much!
Then I told him I wanted to change from my date clothes to a tshirt

It only took him about 25 min. to realize what I was wearing (men).  I know it is hard to see in green...but it is the tshirt he always wanted.  When he finally noticed I gave him his.. and he loves it!

I got a big piece of childrens craft foam and cut out the image and spray painted the tshirt.  hope you think it is cute

67  I'm no lawn ornament though I am a flamingo in Halloween Costumes by Kayster on: November 01, 2006 12:34:53 PM
I asked on crafster and someone gave my the idea of transforming my long prom dress into a flamingo by shortening the dress and adding feathers.  I dyed some tights and made a mask for the occasion.  Hope you like it.

69  finished painted t shirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kayster on: December 24, 2005 09:51:24 AM
I am going to give these t shirts to my brothers and cousin for christmas.  i'm really excited about them and i want to know what you think!

First i chalked what I wanted to paint on the t shirts
this design is one of my brother's tattoos that he has on his side, so I wanted to paint it on the side of the tshirt

This is for one of my other brothers and i chalked a huge nintendo controller, I think he'll like the nostalgia of it all

This is for my cousin who is starting to get involved in producing music, he has left his family in st. louis and moved to the big city of new york!

This one is my favorite!  It is for my REALLY smart brother.  it is a conture drawing of a german author he likes.

I really just copied a conture drawing that my brother did.  He is a genius! and a completely amazing artist.  He told me about this website.  Check him out at www.mattkirkland.com (sorry a little plug for my brother)

ok here are the finished products.   i used ceiling paint for the tshirts.  I really like the effect I got.  The paint is really stiff and it is exactly what i was going for.

all four together

what do you think??

I was bored and needed a new wallet.  being a poor college kid...I chose to improvise with some left over catalogs i had.  But, I got my sewing machine involved and had a good time with it.
I cut these images out of a catalog...Delias.. and covered them with tape
Then I sewed little designs on them all:

Then I sewed the pieces all together
