1  Knifty Knitter hat of "love" lol in Knitting: Completed Projects by BoredYetCynical on: February 13, 2008 10:50:46 PM
So I got bored of packing today and decided that I wanted to bust out the knifty knitter. I haven't used it in quite a while. I used this soft red yarn that I've had forever and a day that I've tried making scarves with, but it just didn't work out right. I can't even begin to tell you what the name of the yarn is. The origonal tag that came with it is in my yarn box in my mom and dad's storage unit. i'll be able to tell what it is as of Monday I think. Anyway... enough of my senseless rambling and onto the softy hat goodness!

It looks like a red spider web of looooovvvveee, lol

Pardon my dorkdum, I also needed a New MySpace pic, lol

I made it on the green loom. I started it off like a normal hat. I knitted about 6 rows before I made the tiny brim. After that i only wrapped every other peg, hense the open spaces. I'm going to work on a brown hat next, just a little differently... but I'll work on it tomarrow, it's almost 1 am. I have to get up at 6 with the baby. Hope you enjoyed the hat!

2  stencily onesie, hand bag and book cover goodness (Image Heavy) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by BoredYetCynical on: January 27, 2008 10:53:37 PM
Finally... I stopped putting off doing my crafting, sat down and got some progress done. About 5 months into my pregnancy, my ex fiance'/ best friend's sister gave me a rather large tub full of boys baby clothes for my son. She just had twins this past may, and had a lot (and by a lot, I mean a ton) of clothes that she received from friends and family and knew that her two boys wouldn't end up getting to wear before they got too big so she passed them onto me. Within the massive tub of clothes were quite a few blank onesies. I had planned on dishing out a few stenciled ones before my son was born.... procrastinator!!! I didn't even start working on them (with the exception of one) until a week and a half ago, my son is now almost 3 months old, heh. I managed to get 9 onesies stenciled, I was able to stencil one... count em' one, BEFORE he was born Roll Eyes

Take a look:

This is the one I did before he was born.

I saw a onesie like this before on this board I believe so I had to try it out, used masking tape to section off the stripes and then used a stencil from stencil punks (I think that's where I got it)


This is my nickname for him, because he's a booger butt, lol

I only stenciled the star on this one, the rest I did free hand.

You'd have to know who Corey "Mr. Safety" Williams is from YouTube (he does the Mean Kitty song), he does a song called Make Poop, it's actually rather funny. Oh and please ignore the stain that's on it, my nephew (boyfriends actually), took it upon himself to put this onesie on Little Man before I got a chance to take pics and pre-wash when I told him not too. Needless to say, Little Man had a VERY, and VERY leaky wet diaper.

gas mask (stencilpunks)

This one is my favorite

This is my dad's nickname for him, lol

Well those are the onesies, there was one more but somehow the picture got deleted off of my computer. But was I stopping with just those? Oh no, not a chance. I came across this black hand bag at Hot Topic that was $6 on clearance. So I decided that I wanted to bleach pen stencil it. It turned out pretty good.


Then I wanted to stencil this book that had a felt like cover:

and last, but not least my zipper hoodie was too plain so I gave it a touch up. (all the swirls are done by hand.)

front pockets

right shoulder

left arm

I was going to put wings on the back of it, but I thought that was too much on this jacket.

Anyway, sorry for all the pics. Tell me what you all think.

3  Down will come baby... cradle and all..... in Completed Projects by BoredYetCynical on: November 23, 2007 09:10:47 PM
20 years ago when I was five my dad wanted me to have a baby doll bed that would last a life time, instead of a crappy store bought one that would fall apart. So he got busy and created the item that's below. Oh and by the way, the little extra that's inside of it... I made that, took me a whole nine months to do so (Note... it's not a doll lol)

Who would have known that an object my dad intended to be a toy for me would end up being used for my own son 20 years later? My mom had said months ago that we could use it for him, but we thought that it was going to be too small for a human baby (my dad cut the measurements down from a real life size cradle.). Well mom and dad were down in the basement today cleaning and got a good look at it and realized that my Little Man would in fact fit in it. So my dad ran up to the fabric store (that sounds so funny, my dad, the biker... in a fabric store hehe), got a piece of firm foam and some jersey fabric to make a mattress. My mom is going to make a slip cover for the foam later. Right now we've got it tightly wrapped with a sheet. Oh, and for size reference... my son is 9lbs almost 2oz (he's only 13 days old too). So he's slightly smaller than a 12lb turkey.

You know what? When I first saw the pic of it, I thought "Hey that looks like my dad!!!" And the funny thing is, my dad looks nothing like yours, lol.

Here's my dad

you just gotta picture him with shades on. lol.

5  Re: Acrylic paint on skin? in Halloween Costumes by BoredYetCynical on: October 25, 2007 04:16:32 PM
I went to an ICP concert about three years ago and used acrylic paints (like apple barrel) to paint my, my then fiance' and our friends faces for the concert and it worked. It cracked a little, but didn't start coming off until the faygo showers happened, lol.

And last year I once again used acrylic paint to paint shaggy 2 dopes (ICP again) face paint on my now boyfriend and his nephew's faces. It came out really well. I wish I had pics of my BF and nephew.

Here's a pic of before heading to the concert.

I'm the one in the middle, my then fiance' is the one with the red hair and goatee. Our friends face paint looks kinda crappy because he's a chronic sweater, so the paint got runny before it dried.

6  Not a Halloween costume.. but a costume and idea in Halloween Costumes by BoredYetCynical on: October 14, 2007 05:36:16 PM
I participate in a LARP game called Vampire the masquerade. Every year there is a special event in Milwaukee Wisconsin called midwinter. It's usually held in January and every year they have a different theme. Last years was Twisted Fairy Tales. It being my first Midwinter, I wanted to have a costume that was pretty cool. I had wanted to use my old prom dress (which was blue with no sleeves). I kept thinking of different princess's and just could not think of a twisted version of a typical fairy tale princess. My boyfriend however, came up with a good one. Beauty AS the Beast. So  I got some fake theatrical fur, spirit gum and a black tiara from Johnny Brock's Dungen. I would use my own make up and black hooded cape for the rest of the costume. Unfortunately, I didn't pack an extra dress and got that friggin spirit gum all over the dress.... however, fortunately for me, my friend brought an extra dress... which was black and medieval style. The costume turned out pretty good.

Here's me modeling it with my best friend.

The bad part is... Spirit gum is the itchiest stuff I've ever had on my face. So it stayed on for all of half an hour before I couldn't take it anymore. I took the stuff off, along with the tiara, and just went as little goth riding hood for the rest of the night.

7  Re: Show me your craft "room"!! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by BoredYetCynical on: November 24, 2005 09:11:16 PM
Hi. My name is Linsey and i thought i'd show everyone my craft room. Now, it's a complete and udder mess. So that's why on my next days off and when i get home from work, i'm going to be working on it, aside from cleaning my disaster of an appartment. Now on with the mini tour!

My craft room is a small room once balcony that's at the back of my bedroom. This building was built around the 20's, 30's, or 40's, i'm not too sure, so there were mini balconies off of the back of each apartment. At one point in time a previous owner of the building decided to close up the balconies, creating little extra rooms. Here is the entrance to the room.

Lets go inside.

This right here is the main area when you come into the room. The reason it's so cluttered and unusable i will get too in just a minute. Here's another veiw of it.

Yes, there is a craft table under there somewhere.....

And if you look to the right while standing in the door way...

If you look to the left you'll see this....

Why is that space so empty you ask? Because this use to be in it's spot two days ago...

Mine and my fiance's computer desk and computer. and this..... was the computer chair.....

A big ol' honkin recliner. He refused to use anything other than his beloved recliner. Now that chair is still in that room, because the computer desk is now in the living room and we have a tiny little apartment and a huge monstosity of a couch, so there is no room for the chair. It will stay in that room for the time being. There is a little table that i've started a mosaic on, behind the chair. I'm going to move that little table and move the chair back some more. Now for the reason to why my craft table was unusable. Because the computer table and recliner were in there, my craft stuff was taking over my little space. So i was having to do my crafts in the living room here...

On a little side table next to the couch.

Now that the comp. table is now in the living room, i can expand my craftness. I'm going to butt the back of the table up against the side of the chair so i have room behind me, and the two craft storage units are going to go in that open space where the comp. table use to be. Because the recliner is staying in the room for a while, i can sit in it and do my crocheting (sp?). One of the yellow tall back chairs that my grandmother gave me, is going to serve as a temporary craft chair. I'm not too keen on using them because they've been gouging my hardwood floors. I'm asking for some area rugs to go on my floor for christmas, be cause these floors are a pain to clean, and if they don't get cleaned soon enough, the bottoms of my feet turn black from the dirt. Enough of that, now i'm rambling.... I'll post updated pics when i get the room redecorated.
