11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Adult-y t-shirt recon on: March 27, 2008 10:09:34 PM
My friend just gave me this bitchin' shirt which is huge and also makes my hips look frighteningly broad (granted, the pants I'm wearing don't help much either.  Also, my giant hips.)

I want to do some surgery.  I've been looking through a lot recons others have done and they're awesome, but I feel like I'm getting too old for some of the popular methods.  I'm generally pretty basic in my clothing - I don't really do ruffles, lace, etc.  Any suggestions?
12  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 25 ENTRIES / I could steer the Great Salt Lake - Utah Saltair bracelet on: March 05, 2008 07:00:09 PM
Reppin' Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Salt Lake was once home to an ill-fated leisure resort called the Great Saltair, built in 1893.  Originally designed as a seaside-style resort, it had swimming, rides, roller skating, and dances.  The resort burned several times, floundered during the war, and was eventually abandoned.  It has since been remade as a concert venue, but it has never recaptured its former glory.  I adore the Moorish architecture and driving by it always makes me think retro glamorous thoughts.  More recently, for some reason, it makes me think of that episode of "Torchwood"  when the Jack Harknesses meet.  And make out.  And that makes me happy.

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Postage Stamp Side Table on: March 05, 2008 12:37:02 PM
Yeah, I know there have probably already been a million decoupaged postage stamp tables, so here's another one for the heap.  I am pretty pleased with how it came out and I finally made a decent dent in my giant envelope of stamps I bought some years ago and forgot about.  The original table was part of an Ikea  nesting set.  The biggest table is currently being used to hold up my bird's cage, I usually sit on the middle one, so I figured the little one could use a shot in the arm.

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone bought Crate & Barrel furniture? on: February 05, 2008 03:43:51 PM
Yeah, so, have you?  I'm really digging a Crate & Barrel bed, but there isn't a store in my area.  I was wondering if anyone might be able to attest to the quality of C&B furniture.  Good stuff?  Or sort of flimsy?
15  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Inkjet Tattoo Paper on: October 05, 2007 08:47:21 PM
I'm not really sure where this belongs, but has anybody ever used an inkjet tattoo transfer paper (like Waterslide, etc)?  I'm thinking of doing a tattooed lady for Halloween and it would be a lot cheaper (not to mention more fun) to make my own tattoos.  If you've tried it, does it work well?  Or is it the people equivalent of crunchy iron-ons transfers?
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Tarnishing chain on: September 24, 2007 04:02:07 PM
I'm working on a necklace and want to incorporate some chains.  All my chain is super shiny, though, which doesn't go with the feel of the rest of the necklace.  Is there a way to give it a more tarnished/dirty look?  It's plain metal chain (not sterling).
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Leather wrap bracelets on: September 18, 2007 01:15:42 PM
I've been playing around with leather lacing and made these based on a ridiculously expensive bracelet I saw:

Autumn colors and gold leaves on brown:

Each bracelet is three strands about 40 inches long wrapped continuously around the wrist. 
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Floating plexi photo pendants - new pendants on p.4 on: September 12, 2007 02:11:24 PM
I want to learn how to do resin, but my tiny apartment makes it near impossible.  So I've been experimenting with sandwiching photos between pieces of plexiglass.  More labor intensive, I think, but essentially fume-free.  I'm still working on perfecting the process (I'm still getting a few bubbles here and there).  Anyway, here are a couple of the pendants I've made:

Retro swimsuit girls

A pair of French postcard nudes

Robot on a chunky chain

Robot on a neckwire (for those times when robot on a chain isn't quite dressy enough)

Coffee and cigarettes
19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Reaming glass beads on: September 10, 2007 03:19:29 PM
Has anyone reamed glass beads?  In particular, with a rotary tool?  I've seen Dremel attachments that supposedly will ream glass beads, but I'm skeptical.  I'm trying to widen existing holes.  Advice? 
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Le Voyage Dans La Lune bracelet on: September 09, 2007 09:45:06 PM
I'm having a short love affair with all things retro futuristic, which the past couple days has very much involved the absolutely gorgeous French sci-fi film, A Trip To The Moon. 

I printed off some stills from the movie, glued them on to some neat silvery glass beads I found, and sealed them with acrylic.  Each image is on both sides of the bead.  Anyway, enjoy.  Comments are always appreciated.
