1  Gnome Riding A Snail! in Completed Projects by cheesefairy13 on: January 27, 2010 10:00:26 PM

So my boyfriend's neighbor has these garden gnomes in their front yard, one of them being a gnome riding a snail, and it never ceases to amuse me. So while I was browsing Joann’s I was super excited to find out some of their seasonal stuff on sale consisted of gnomes, one who also happened to be riding a snail. So of course I bought it with the intent to re-paint it and make it all happy and neon colored.

But as per usual I had a little crafting accident. My cat was having one of her super hyperactive moments, and decided to run through the wet paint, and run all over my apartment as well as knocking my half way finished gnome into wet black paint. Not too much damage was done but I had a hard time trying to cover the black paint on his face with the skin tone color. Instead I covered it with bright red and turned him into a zombie gnome… riding a neon colored snail.

It really, really hurts my feelings that my friends and family don't appreciate handmade gifts anything.
Whaterver I make is intrinsically valueless to them, regardless of how well it's done, how much time it took,
or even how expensive the materials were. Ouch.

I have never been more happy... that my sucide attempt failed.

Men scare me.

The Back:

I've never been an object of desire for men so it wasn't a problem. I sorrounded myself with female and gay friends. But since turning 21, I'm going out more and more. Men flirt with me and dance with me and i'm terrified.

5  Hoodie recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cheesefairy13 on: July 14, 2009 08:00:23 PM
  During highschool one of my best guy friends had this Monty Python hoodie that I was absolutely in love with.  He promised he would give it to me when we graduated and he did.  It had a big hole in the side so originally I meant to just fix it but then I kept cutting, and cutting...and cutting a little more until magically it became my size.  I royally f'd up the sleeves so they were really uneven and was scared to mess with the hood even the though it was gigantic. Then I pretty much put it away in fear he would cry when he saw it and I wasn't really that happy with it myself.
  Now a year later I've decided to butcher it some more.  Fueled by some unknown bravery I cut off the hood and found myself really liking it.  The sleeves are still a hot mess, any advice on what I could with em would be greatly appreciated.  I haven't really done very many successful recons and I'm scared if I try to fix them I'll just mess it up more.

What it currently looks like/couldn't find the before pictures:

6  Pop-Tabs and Bottlecaps in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cheesefairy13 on: September 09, 2006 06:58:58 PM
I think this is my first post ever. If not then it's def the first time i've posted anything i've made. Like many before me I was a long time lurker, except when I joined I continued lurking. Shame on me! So I figured it was about time I joined in on the fun. Comments appreciated. =)

Originally I was going to make a pop-tab braclet from the tutorial on here, but spaced on the fact that I was supposed leave the little circle things attached. So this happened instead.

My ex gave me two zip-lock bags full of bottle caps.
