51  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Because I love him... 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
52  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / The Super Impossible DAD on: November 17, 2006 03:05:02 PM
My father is a man i love and would love to give him something he truly enjoyed for christmas this year.  But here is why it is soo impossible:
1. He is a work-a-holic (sadly not by choice)
2. He travels a lot but i think getting him something travel related makes him sad that he has to travel in the first place.  and when he does travel he usually is entertaining clients or bosses on the plain and in the city he's in (hardly any time to himself).
3. he has no time for his own interest which have, in suit, dwindled away
4. He is 49
5. he had a christian rock band until about 15 years ago but still LOVES music
6.He is an amazing artist.  Better than i could explain at pastels and watercolor and photography (but doesn't have time for that anymore)
7.  He appreciates music, especially christian...i think this is the main thing i could get an idea from.

For his birthday I bought him a full season of the twilight zone which he LOVED..he like scifi and the fact it has great old famous actors in it.
I'm too strapped for cash to give him that.  i have been giving him all of my college art projects to hang up in his office all semester, i know he likes that.  I know he likes things i make him...but he is just soo darn impossible.

He works so hard and deserves soo much...I NEED SOME HELP!! Anyone??  Please??
53  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I'm no lawn ornament though I am a flamingo 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.

54  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Making a costume out of a PROM DRESS!!! on: October 07, 2006 04:37:56 PM
I really want to make a Halloween Costume out of one of my old prom dresses.  I don't want to be a fairy or anything over done like that.  I kinda want to be an animal of some kind.  I don't know!!  I obviously need some help here.  The dress I want to use is short and puffy.  It is a pinky/peachy color...So help a girl out if you have any ideas!!  Thank you.
55  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / finished painted t shirts 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??
56  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wallet, yes another one but way cute on: October 23, 2005 08:34:07 PM
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
