1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Funky Floral Towel Quilt Perfect for the Beach on: July 15, 2010 08:13:10 PM
This is the most perfect gift idea for my kiddos' godfather.  He is a consumate shell collector; hand him a shell, and he will give you English and Latin names, and tell you where it came from.

The boys and I are going to pick out towels and make a faboooosh towel quilt for our shell collector!!! Wink
2  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Granny-A-Day crochet-along for April? on: March 12, 2010 11:47:48 PM
I am definitely in for this one.  I work in a call center from 3pm till midnight every night.  The powers that be have decided that we can have absolutely nothing other than yarn for our company's pet project (making things for nursing home residents) at our desks, and I get my last call around 8.  I can definitely do a square a day, and make a nice blanket for one of the residents.
And....yay!  I have enough time to play with different patterns to decide what sort to do!

This is one of the best before and afters I have ever seen!  My local Goodwill has 2 of these vanities, and our other little thrift store has 3....they are in abundance here in the south, I suppose.  This is definitely on my to do list.....after I find a job Wink

I think you and the boyfriend did a fantastic job!
4  Florida / Florida: Panhandle / Re: Help Out A Moving Artists - moving from Houston, Texas on: August 12, 2009 12:20:45 PM
I'm in Enid, OK right now, but moving home to Crestview within the next week.  There are always craft fairs on the military bases...you've got NAS Pensacola, Hurlburt Field, and Eglin AFB right there within an hour of Pensacola or Gulf Breeze.  Destin has a lot of small boutiques that might be interested.  I think in May or June they do the big Bridal Fair out on Okaloosa Island.  The Greek Festival is coming up on Okaloosa Island in early September.  They have the Destin Seafood Festival and the Shark Rodeo.  If you are willing to go to Niceville, there's the Mullet Festival (celebrating the fish....not the haircut LOL)....tons of crafty goodness.  I've been gone for a year, so I haven't kept up with everything happening.

Check with the Convention and Visitors Bureau and they should have a lineup of all of the happenings.  I think you will really do well with all of the boutique type places in Pensacola, GB, FWB and Destin.

I love this!  It really goes nicely with the furniture already in the room, and with that cool green paint.....simply beautiful.

I may have to borrow this idea and make one for my purply room back home in Florida.

What an awesome idea for upcycling!  Looks like it gets the Orange Cat Seal of Approval, too. 
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: painting over wood paneling? on: May 02, 2009 10:53:12 PM
It is possible to paint over panellling.  We did it in our den at our old house in Florida.  You either have to scrub the heck out of the panelling to remove any oil on them or sand the heck out of them.  We sanded, used 2 coats of Kilz, then applied our paint.  One of the drawbacks was the fact that our panelling had the grooves cut into it.  That added another couple of days to the painting process as the grooves had to be painted with a brush rather than the roller.

If I had it to do all over again, I would do some kitschy stripes where the grooves sat. 

My hubby also said that you can wallpaper over panelling fairly easily if you get good quality, thicker wallpaper.  His ex wife was a wallpaper freak, so every room of their house was papered.

I don't think I have ever seen such a perfect match of details and fabric.  I hope you are super proud of this!  It is absolutely, positively beautiful.
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Machine advice desperately needed...... on: April 16, 2009 07:25:22 PM
I ended up getting a Singer Confidence 7463.  We bought it on Ebay from an authorized Singer eTailer, and it is (was since I opened it up and played today) brand spanking new in the box.  It is sooooo different from the machines I am used to, but pretty simple to get started on.  If only it came with an automatic iron that would de-wrinklify my fabrics LOL.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Recycled Bucket Tote (Lined Tote on Page 3) on: April 16, 2009 11:35:30 AM
 Wink....this gives me wicked ideas.  Hubby is an ammo reloader, and keeps his brass in the coffee cans.  I wonder what he'd do if someday he came in from work and I had covered them all up....in manly prints of course.  If I made the handle out of something substantial, I could hang them on the wall above his reloading bench.
