2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Swathe scarf - free pattern link! on: May 22, 2011 06:39:17 PM
I made this scarf for my mum for mothers day this year, and thought I'd share the pattern. It's already on Ravelry and my blog, but I figured I'd share the love a little more! Smiley

The pattern is available for free at my blog, www.dangerousandhardlypractical.blogspot.com/2011/05/swathe.html.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / handmade ipad domo!! on: December 25, 2010 07:48:27 PM
Merry Xmas everyone!

Yesterday I got to my parents house to have christmas dinner, and my little bro was super insistent that I open his gift first. He told me that it was handmade and one-of-a-kind, and admitted that while he designed it, mum was the one who did all the work. So when I opened my gift, this is what I found...

DOMO!!!!! My family knows how much I love domo coz my b/f gave me a stuffed domo for our anniversary, and I took him all round Cyprus and England and Dubai.

The b/f posing with domo.

Thank you mum and liam for the combined creativity!! <3<3<3

Being a girl, it has always been considered socially inappropriate for me to sport a dashing moustache, no matter how debonaire or well groomed it may be.


Now I have something to stroke while deep in thought! And when not in use, it dangles stylishly around my neck!

Also in walrus, for the more dignified look...

And dirty handle-bar, for the biker inside!

I'm planning to sell them at the Artisan Markets this weekend.... not sure how they'll go, but at least I'll get the chance to share my love of facial hair with the world!
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Indie designers beware! - Diva steals artists designs. on: June 26, 2009 08:50:38 PM
I don't know if this is the right place to post this, if its not, feel free to move it.
I just think everyone needs to know whats happening.


This article was posted on the ShanaLogic blog the other day, and has been making the rounds on facebook. Basically, the jewellery and accessory store Diva (I know we have them here in Australia, not sure about other parts of the world), has been stealing and mass producing the designs from the ShanaLogic store. They are poor quality knock-offs, and they are selling them for far less than the actual artist can afford to.

Diva has always made poor quality jewellery, I've bought a few things from there that have turned my fingers green and broken in 5 minutes. But to stoop to stealing ideas from indie designers, who lets face it, are not exactly making a mint from selling their goods but are doing it for the love of making things, is pretty much the lowest of the low.

I'm going to boycott Diva from now on, and I urge anyone who cares about the indie design community to do simillar, because what they are doing is pretty much dispicable.

Cheers, dudettes!

It didn't really run or bleed, it was one of those fine tip sharpies that can do a lot of detail and such. There was a little bleeding when he was drawing, but like, the tiniest amount. Once it dried it didn't come off or bleed, I was working out in the rain and the only part that came off was at the top where my tshirt sleave kept rubbing! The major problem is that I can't get it off, and I have work tomorrow..... something tells me I'mma have to go at my arm with that sugar soap stuff, or one of those pumice stones!

Your boyfriends work is so awesome! Quite similar, with the geometric shapes and the stark black ink on skin and such. It would make an awesome tattoo, kudos to your significant other on tricking people into thinking it was real!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sharpie Sleave (image scrimage) on: April 20, 2008 09:19:37 PM
I have no idea if this is right catagory or what, but I just gotsta show off my buddies handi-work!

We went away for a week to Sculpture Camp, and 2 nights ago we were sitting around after dinner pretty bored, and I let my friend draw on me. It started off just on the back of my hand but I turn to talk to someone else for 1 minute and its all up my arm!

It took him about 30 minutes to do the whole thing, and none of it was planned, which I think is rather impressive considering how intricate it is! There are also words and letters and little pictures hidden in it, he didn't tell me where they are so I'm not sure if I've found them all yet! It was all done with a Sharpie pen, and when it was first done it looked a lot darker and cooler. I didn't take any pictures when it was first done, so its faded over the past 2 days.

I am seriously loving it, its awesome and intricate and bold and I'm so tempted to get an actual sleave like this! My friends name is Dave Sims, and he is seriously an amazing artist, WATCH THIS SPACE PEOPLE! He wants to be a tattoo artist, and he's gonna be big, yo!
