1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Pressie for my friends B'day... on: January 30, 2008 05:20:33 PM
just given it to her and she loved it  Grin she actually said if i gave her just that for her b'day then she would have been happy  Grin i thought maybe she said it to be nice but she gave me such a big hug i think she may have meant it! Tongue

i forgot to say i made it before she opened it, and when i told her she was like  Shocked that was the best bit hehehe Tongue i think i may make things for people more often!

thanks for the enouragement guys!

aww thank you all soooooo much!!!  Grin

wanderluster don't think i'd ever have the guts to give someone something i'd handmade just on it's own!!! they'd think i was being soooooooooo cheap!

i'm not sure about the tut, sorry....took me a while to grasp what i had to do ayways haha! Tongue beadweaving is quite fun when you get it right though......so i think i'll have to do some more of this!

giving it to her soonio! ooooooo! Tongue

ok.......so i've always wanted to make something for someone as a pressie...but never had the guts 1. coz i didnt know i they'd think it's cheap and 2. because my "creations" are poop on a stick! Tongue

so...........i made the butterfly for this a while back before i met her.....anyways, i thought it would be ideal for her as she likes pink and sparkley things, and i thought it would be a shame for it to go unused......so i added a simple bead bracelet to it.....and hey presto! here it is..............

i'm not sure if she'll like it, or what she'll think.....so i got her a big pressie to go with it (lots of lush bath goodies! because she luuuuuurves her baths! Tongue inc. are some pink glittery bath bombs teehee!)

it was really hard to capture on my cam.......i think it looks stunning in person just because the swarovski crystals sparkle so much! not because it looks good Tongue they really catch the light when put under a good one (not the kind in student digs haha!)

anyways........would like to know what you think.......be honest, it's more appreciated Smiley i'm giving it to her tomoz anyways so i'll let you know how it goes Tongue

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP 1950s Fashion on: October 13, 2007 08:44:55 AM
hi guys....i could do with your help!

basically i have to produce a research book for my fashion marketing degree which shows fashion from the 1950s, this is to help me produce a shirt/blouse with a 1950s influence (this doesnt mean i only have to look at shirts/blouses, i can look at anything from that era because i need to look at colours, patterns, fabrics etc...)

so anyway, i was wondering if any of you could help as i'm really struggling to find things where i live (Manchester, UK) if anyone from the UK (or anywhere else if you have info and they ship to the UK) knows any good shops/internet sites or something that may help......(the cheaper the better, as i'm a poor student now)

also, if anyone has anything from the 1950s (images etc) that they wouldnt mind sending my way, that would be great (you could just scan them and send them to me) or perhaps you were around in the 1950s and have some photos that you wouldn't mind sharing with me that show the fashions of that time, they would be sooooooo great!!! (people have used personal photos of family & friends etc in their research books in the past) or maybe you made something 1950s inspired of from a 1950s pattern that you wouldn't mind sharing with me Smiley

or perhaps you just have some info on fashions from that time, really, anything will do!! Tongue i'm really struggling to find anything where i live, i dunno if i'm just looking in the wrong places, but i just can't find anything, maybe it's because everyones so obsessed with that era right now that they've already snapped everything up haha!

anyway! thank you all for your help & time, i really appreciate it

Hannah Smiley

feel free to message me for more info (if i dont reply, i'm not being rude, i just dont have the net at my place at uni yet hehe, so bear with me!)
