11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Prom Dress =) Lots of Pics! on: May 19, 2009 09:25:10 PM
Hey Craftsters! It's been a while since I posted, I've been embarrassingly lazy lately. Tongue  I made my dress for my Junior prom this year, it took me a while.. mostly because I'm a champion procrastinator. The dress is made out of chiffon fabric that I hand painted (Inspired by this AMAZING dress: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69344.0 ) If you have any more questions just ask!

Picture time!

Looking a bit puffy here...

Garter shot! I made my garter too.. wish I had a better photo of it. Sad

Group shot! I did feel a bit awkward being the only one with a short dress.. but I was soo happy once the dance came around and all the girls in floor-length gowns were sweating their fake eyelashes off.

Date/best friend/now boyfriend (!), me, and my mom. Cheesy

Just for fun.. Heavy drinking on prom night! Just kidding.. I'm a good kid. Cheesy

So that's it.. It turned out to be an amazing night despite the rain/cramps/sunburn. Smiley

Oooh, almost forgot to add the professional pic:

Okay, now I'm REALLY done! Cheesy

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Houndstooth Pleated Purse! on: December 31, 2008 05:51:17 AM
Hey Craftsters! I made this fun little purse a while ago, I love the fabric!

I'd love to hear what you folks think, thanks for looking.

Happy new year!! Grin
13  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / First Bento EVER!! on: August 18, 2008 09:05:40 PM
Hey Craftsters! So I just started my junior year of high school today. I never eat the school lunches and this year I decided to try something new. Cheesy So here's my first ever bento box! It's fried chicken (I made the night before, breaded with tortilla chip crumbs), pineapple, half a kiwi, grapes, tomato and feta cheese stuffed olive on the cutest little star pick ever. I also had some home made honey mustard sauce and carrots that aren't in the picture. I got some funny looks at school today.. but to hell with 'em, it was delicious! Grin

EDIT!  Day 2! Cheesy

14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Painting for my Mom, WOOHOO! on: August 16, 2008 12:12:33 AM
Hey Craftsters! I just finished this painting for my mom tonight, I'd love to know what all you lovely people think. Cheesy My mom is going to be teaching 6th grade this year and all the elementary teachers got these wooden board things to paint/write their name on and put them up on the doors to their classrooms.. long story short my mom had me do hers for her. Roll Eyes I have no idea why the image of a ferris wheel came to my mind but hey, it works. I don't paint much but I'm satisfied with how this turned out.. at least hers will stand out from the other teachers'. Cheesy

Thanks for looking, I love comments. Cheesy
15  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / HENNA! First ever! on: August 14, 2008 06:15:27 PM
Hey Craftsters! I've become interested in henna lately: lurking on the hennapage forum and obsessively looking at henna photos on Flickr. Well today I finally received my henna I ordered and I'm so excited!!! I just did this on my thigh today. I'm just starting out so I'd love to know what you folks think. Cheesy

Pretty simple, but I'm satisfied with it.. can't wait to practice more. Cheesy

Hey Craftsters! I just finished this purse to use for school this year (I'm going to be a junior.. aaah time's going by too fast!). It's pretty huge but that's okay, and I looove the fabric. Well, on to the pictures:

Zipper! First ever top-zipper purse

Shot of awesome lining fabric that doesn't really match but is still awesome

Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated. Kiss

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / $1.00 Clearance Shirt = Ruffly Summer Dress on: June 22, 2008 09:19:50 PM
Hey Craftsters! I found this huuuge XXL shirt on the clearance rack for ONE DOLLAR! I love the material, super soft and stretchy. I made it over the course of two days, working off and on. I'm very happy with how it turned out and it's probably my most successful recon. to date.
The black contrast bands are just scraps of another old t-shirt I had laying around leftover from a recon gone bad. =P

This is what it looked like before:

And here it is now!


BACK - It's hard to see, but I added two darts running down most the length of the back part of the dress for a better shape.

CLOSE-UP OF BUST - Woo, super blurry, sorry!

BOTTOM RUFFLES - Dang I have some veiney hands.

Thanks for looking! Hope you folks like it, questions and comments always appreciated! Kiss
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Elephant plushies! on: June 01, 2008 04:40:52 PM
Hey Craftsters! I'm sure some of you might recognize these. I made them using the pattern from Diana Rupp's book, SEW. The pink one is for my niece and the blue one for my little nephew.

Hope you guys like them! Comments welcome!
20  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / First Layered Stencil! -- LA Lakers! on: May 26, 2008 09:31:58 PM
Hey craftsters! So tonight I finished my first 3-color stencil. It's the Los Angeles Lakers logo. It turned out a lot better than I thought it would, although it required tons of touching up after the main stenciling was done, but it was worth it. . Grin


Don't mind the mess or the sun burn..

Close-up (paint is still wet, that's why it's glisteny..)

Thanks for looking, comments always appreciated! Kiss
