1  Re: Bringing Las Vegas home suprise PARTY! in Party Planning by sheknewit on: February 16, 2009 05:31:03 PM
I just realized I never posted the pictures!!!!  Well ignore the drunk shenanigans, but below are some...

I did end up having the party inside and out - unfortunately the outside pictures didn't turn out, but I hung Christmas lights on my patio.  Then I made styrofoam board signs pertaining to Vegas and poked hole into the signs so they lit up... they were awesome!

I got most the party supplies at Party City and then found a few other Vegas inspires art pieces to put up around my house..

The biggest hit was a "Photo Booth" I set up out of PVC Pipe and shelf that I named the Wedding Chapel... inside I put a bunch of little props and a few disposable cameras - i think everyone fake married each other!

Here's my friend at the beginning of her suprise!

Party Goers!

Wedding Chapel Fun!

From now on I'm going to set up a 'photo booth' at my parties with themed props - everyone really gets into it...

2  Arrrgggghhh - my cat's pirate ship play station! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by sheknewit on: February 16, 2009 05:03:36 PM
I found this little cat play station at Ross for $7!!!

Since I named my animals after the great songs of music legend Elton John (My cat is Rocketman and my fish is Bennyandthejets)  I decided to name this little beauty the USS Crocodile Rock!

He LOVES it!!


Thanks for looking Smiley

3  Bar Station :) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sheknewit on: February 16, 2009 04:56:25 PM
I collect shot glasses and originally had them on my little wine hutch thingy, but they were taking over and my cat decided to start using them as toys... I found this shelf at a thrift store for like $8, I painted it black and waaaaahlahh - a display for my many shot glasses =]

Then here is a hutch thingy with a wine rack underneath that I found for $45 at Salvation Army!!!  Usually a lot more full of bottles underneath - going through drought right now =[

4  My non-over-the-top Disney/Retro kitchen! =] lots of pics in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sheknewit on: February 16, 2009 04:50:31 PM
I started collecting Disney stuff and Retro stuff - Thank gosh they're both in the Red color scheme!  Well here is my recently 'somewhat' finished kitchen =]  I tried not to go over the top with the Disney stuff, I didn't want it to be considered childish.

I took all of these pictures from a bar that seperates the kitchen from my dining/living areas.

Here is a part of my retro bottle collection - check out that skippy jar!!

My cookbook collection with retro star shaped fly swatter..

Coffee Station

The side of my fridge was a little boring, so I cut up an old calendar and made these magnet fridge art

I made these magnets out of old cookie cutters!

My Recipe box and my salt and pepper shakers!

Then some the rest of my counter space...

I have a few retro Mickey Mouse posters that I am going to add to the wall space by the fridge that match all the colors pretty well..

So what do yall think?

5  The Valentine I sent to my buddy :) :) in Valentine's Day by sheknewit on: February 16, 2009 04:40:22 PM
This year I adopted my friend for V-day and sent him this little gift...

He is a Eagles fan and I am a Charger fan - so I made him this picture frame specific to our friendship...  (I had a better picture for the frame, but conveniently my printer wouldn't work =[)

Inside are home-made heart shaped sugar cookies with V-day decorated frosting (I didn't get a picture of the cookies =[)

Then all of it together...

6  Valentine's tree decorations (lots and lots of pictures!) in Valentine's Day by sheknewit on: February 16, 2009 04:32:04 PM
So I have a beachy theme to my dining/living area - so instead of doing a Christmas Tree I decided to put up a year-round artificial palm tree.  I usually decorate it for Christmas with regular decorations and for the rest of the year use it as an extra light source...  This V-day I decided I was going to try and keep it decorated for all the other holidays...  So these are my Valentine's ornaments.

I just used the little wooden shapes from Michaels - I think like $.50 per piece, painted on each side, hot glue gunned ribbon to the to and embellished as needed.  My cat LOVES have a new holiday to attack the tree!

Then below if my little fishy bowl - in spirit of love day!

Thanks for looking!

9  1st time stenciler = semi cool new tank. in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sheknewit on: February 11, 2006 05:45:04 PM
So I tried out stenciling for the first time ever and I'm liking it.  I just drew some designs on Cardstock razor cut it out and  sponge painted onto my shirt... I like it.  I tried to make the paint fade from white-pink-coral-orange-red... but it all blended too much together.  Any ideas cause I was going to make a similar design but with rainbow colors fading into eachother, but I'm a little timid to ruin a shirt.

The Stencil: 

The tank:

A better picture of the design:

Soooo, you likey?
