1  Sweetest gift ever (Img obese) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BereaSteph on: December 24, 2007 04:33:30 PM
So my boyfriend flew in for xmas, and I didn't really think he was "crafty" at all, until I got my Christmas Eve gift today.  He took a journal that he bought, along with some scrapbooking supplies, and made the prettiest journal I've ever seen!  Seriously.

the front.

every so many pages, there's a sweet quote pasted in.  Love it.

But yes.  Horribly impressed with my lil britty boy!  The Queen mother is definitely proud of him!
As am I... maybe I'll finally get my butt in gear with my short stories!!!

2  gift for the best friend and her man... IMG heavy in Winter Holidays by BereaSteph on: December 24, 2007 04:27:31 PM
I meant to post this a few days ago, but with the British boyfriend in town and dealing with family, time's been a bit hard to come by.

So for my best friend and her boyfriend, I purchased a horse and carriage ride through downtown Lousiville in their new Cinderella carriage--white and in the shape of the pumpkin, with purple-ish christmas lights woven around it.  Very pretty. 

Only problem was--had no way of giving it to them creatively.  Then, I thought of this:

A cast iron Cinderella carriage.  I attached a pretty little note to it giving the time and date of their ride.  But then I needed something to put it in...

voila!!  A gorgeous handmade box fit perfectly--and she could re-use it!

She loved it!

3  Juno shirt goes from flab to fab! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BereaSteph on: December 24, 2007 04:15:51 PM
So I saw Juno for free the other night, and they were handing out free shirts as well.  Hurrah!  So they were your standard unisex tee sizes, so the original looked like this:

Note the sad face.

So with some minor alterations, the shirt went to fitted and cutsie!


Oh, and Juno absolutely rocked my socks off.

4  suh-weet new journal. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BereaSteph on: June 16, 2007 09:24:16 AM
So I bought a plain journal at B&N a few weeks ago for my short stories and such.  But it was just so plain and uninspiring! 

so I jazzed it up a tad bit!

all i really did was paint it bright red, then lightly swirled some gold paint over it.  The heart-piece was actually an old earring that was in a bag of costume jewelry that belonged to my aunt before she passed away a few years ago.

I thought it turned out nice!

8  Dick Tracy is my hero. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by BereaSteph on: June 07, 2006 08:25:08 AM
so I found this great Dick Tracy (who I seriously heart muchly) bedsheet at the local goodwill, and I wanted to make pillows out of it.  BUT then I found this great pattern on sale for .99 .... and I thought, why not marry the two awesomely great ideas?? This is what came out of it....

How cool, huh?  And I must re-emphasize that Dick Tracy is soooo awesome. 

The pattern was Butterick B4686 and it was skirt D.

9  mom's old shirt into stripedy goodness... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BereaSteph on: May 23, 2006 05:34:03 PM
So I was going thru bags of stuff being sent to the Goodwill, and I noticed a shirt of my mom's that I used to wear as a nightshirt when I was a kid.  Before that, my mom wore it as a teenager (as shown to me in old photos by my kick arse memom)... so the shirt was really soft, old, and comfy--as well as really nostalgic for me...


it looked like this...

really baggy with no shape to it.

So after some fiddling around on the sewing machine, I came up with this....

10  Boring tanks made fun! *dino tank!!!!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BereaSteph on: May 22, 2006 07:27:24 PM
So I bought a couple of plain strappy tanks from wally world a few weeks ago.  They showed too much cleavage for my taste, so I shortened the straps and made them PG13 as opposed to rated R.  Yay for that.  Then I decided they were boring.  The first, I just sewed lace on the collar.  Sorry I don't have a better pic, the cam was low on batts.

As for the pink one... I love lil dinos, so I drew my own and then embroidered him onto the tank.  His name's Herbie.

Aren't they cute???  I start on my dick tracy skirt this week or next week.. yay!
