I love your quilt!  It makes me want to grab a good book and snuggle under the covers..... Perfect gift, and the feathered corners are amazing.  You did a beautiful job.
2  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Monster Umbrellas on: October 22, 2007 09:52:39 AM

I found these umbrellas at the dollar store
and glued felt features to them with spray glue. 
The kids went crazy for them!
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Retro Melamine Cups Turned into Candlesticks on: August 13, 2007 07:43:22 PM

I just got a bunch of projects back from a book I wrote about glue, and thought you guys might like to see these.  They are just melamine cups that I found at a thrift store in San Francisco last year, glued to the tops of black painted candlesticks.  Then as you can see, I glued little black buttons all around and wrote my name with a black sharpie.  Added the ribbons, and now they are perfect to hold candies, or what not.  Too fun, and way easy.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Fiber Yo-Yo Belt on: July 31, 2007 12:37:39 AM
I didn't know what category this would fit into, but I just thought you would like to see my yo-yo belt.  I made it by winding fibers around plastic discs and tying them all together.  

Thanks for looking!

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: Decoupage Luggage for decorative storage on: June 02, 2007 10:46:17 PM

Thanks!  I also did these wooden pieces, using actual poster prints, so when it comes to decoupage, there is no paper too large to use.  I like to wad the paper up into a ball to soften it and "age" it, smooth it out, then glue it on.  When I'm decoupaging papers this large, I use my fingers on top of the print, swirling the glue in small circular motion, pushing out the bubbles, and causing it to look old and canvas-like.  Does that make sense?  Especially with this type of art.  But with the suitcases, I liked the soft matte look with the crispy clean scrapbook papers, so instead of putting decoupage glue on top to seal it, I used matte spray acrylic sealer.  And no way would I put it in on the conveyor belt on an airplane.  Those guys really know how to tear up luggage. 

Happy decoupage, everyone!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Decoupage Luggage for decorative storage on: May 26, 2007 10:59:47 PM

I have some very scary luggage from years ago when my crazy friend Darsee and I were decoupaging everything in sight. The photo shoot for a book that we were writing about decoupage was a hoot, with me dressed in vintage clothing and standing on the railroad tracks looking longing for someone special to arrive on an imaginary train. Pretty funny now, huh? *giggle*

Anyway, I took that old luggage and made it new again. First of all, I had to start with covering up all of the old paint and photos from the first makeover. Gesso to the rescue! It was perfect for major coverage and it gave me a blank canvas. The next step was to spray paint it all white. Now I was ready to decoupage and pick my paper. I have some fabulous new scrapbook paper that is to die for. So I used it for my decoupage and it turned out soooo pretty. I am going to use the new luggage to organize and store craft supplies in my studio. I'm lovin' how fresh and sweet it looks.

Whaddaya think?
Thanks for loooooooking,

Yes, I used a glue gun, since I cut all the petals off the silk flowers, there was no plastic left to melt when I glued the petals to the frame.  You know, I had not thought of this being a good idea for Mother's Day.  Now, I'm going to have to make another one for my mom!  I covered a lampshade and a chair seat for my office.  Love it.  Very Frenchie fun.  Thanks for the kuddos and the new idea.  That's why I love this site.
