1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / P is for pigdogs - my first stencil on: November 21, 2006 03:36:57 PM
Thought I'd share my first attempt.  I am really happy with it!  Pig dog is printed on a long sleeved knit shirt I made.  I used fabric medium mixed with acrylic $1.00 paint.

Here goes:


Thanks for looking!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I want a dremel tool for christmas... tell me about yours! on: November 20, 2006 08:36:40 AM
Dear Santa,
I couldn't think of something I wanted for christmas, but then I realized that I was just being silly.  I don't have everything I need.  I need a dremel tool.

I want to be able to cut out little squares from a thin sheet of metal, sand the edges, engrave things on them, and punch holes through them.  And etch glass!  etc, etc...

What tool do you have?  What attachments should I beg for?

I've tried to look it up, and it is confusing.  Help!

PS. I saw this one and thought it looked nice:
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reconstructed green shirt with boobies (slightly image heavy?) on: October 27, 2006 03:52:27 PM
Hello there!

This is a green shirt that I always hated, but bought because it was very soft.  It was too big and had a t-shirt neck.  I fixed that, and also ripped off this design:http://www.threadless.com/product/333/Nice_Boobies from threadless, because I love it but not the price....

Here goes!  Also featuring Piggo.

I just moved to Windsor, and know no one!  Anyone who wants to get together for crafty things, or who has a friendly dog that wants to play with mine (I have one teeny dog and one big dog)?
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Also, long glamourpuss earrings... two pairs on: December 09, 2005 05:24:13 PM
My friend showed me how to make them.  I feel so glamorous!  They are pretty easy, and they don't take many beads so I went for a couple expensive crystal things.  I figured I'd post 'em while I was at it.  I can post how to make these too, if anyone is interested.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Geometric wall mural type thing. It is blue. on: December 09, 2005 04:17:20 PM
So, my sister is an artiste and got hired to paint a mural.  Being a good sister, she hired me to help.  The whole thing just took a couple of days; it was about 7 ft. by 7, I would say.

Here it is: you can see her little piece of paper design to the right taped on the door

And my sister, modeling it up.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Car/lots of other side of the road junk+chickens=chicken coop on: November 22, 2005 01:57:11 PM
So.  I decided, for a number of reasons, that store bought eggs and chicken were not the best idea.  The solution was to do it myself!  Self reliance and all of that.  I live in Canada, and my city lets you keep agricultural animals in town for personal use.

I've since done this type of project with chickens in Australia and pheasants (in canada again).

First - we got chickens and ducks.  Had to keep the chicks/ducklings inside under heating lamp until they got big enough.  To keep from drowning, had a saucer with marbles in the water.

Then, we gutted an old car of the entire floor and seats, and replaced it with plywood (found on side of the road).  The passenger seat turned into nestboxes, also made out of found wood.  We installed a heat lamp via extension cord onto the roof of the car, and covered the floor in shavings.  We found chicken wire for a fence, an old kiddie pool for the ducks, and camo net for the top of the car.

Resulting in 3 dozen eggs a week from 6 chickens, plus 4 ducks (which we slaughtered last week)
