1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Michael Jackson Stained Glass on: October 17, 2009 09:10:31 PM
I started this on a whim the night before Michael died, and only just finished 2 weeks ago. It became more emotional (I've been a HUGE Michael fan for 10 years-I don't think I'll ever be over his death) than I ever would've wanted.  Cry
I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and I kept breaking my glass while I was cutting it, so it looks hella wonky and uneven. But my mum's glass grinder was calling my name and I couldn't say no. I knew how to solder from silversmithing classes I had taken, so I figured it was close enough to stained glass making that I wouldn't end up killing myself!
The background glass was a horrible choice. I went to the shop looking for pretty, and thought nothing of practicality. It was only after I had broken half of my sheet of glass that I realized it'd probably look better if I lined up the marbling.   Roll Eyes

But, for my first time, with pretty much no prior knowledge, not knowing what the hell I was doing, I think it turned out...decent (okay, and a bit embarrassing)  At least you can tell who it's meant to be!  Embarrassed

Maybe I'll take a class before I try my next one  Tongue
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! on: June 16, 2008 08:31:14 PM
I turn 18 in August, and one of my birthday presents is a tattoo. 
I'm pretty sure I want my first one to be the veterinary symbol.   I'm entering college for my BS in vet science, and hoping to eventually get into vet school.  I'm horribly unmotivated when it comes to school, but I figure if I have something permanent to remind me that it's my passion, it'll give me the drive to get through schooling.

I've seen it with angel wings as well, but I'm not sure I like that.

Any suggestions on whether or not to get it with detail(ie: scales on the snake, etc) and color?  Or would that just look tacky?

Aw thanks! Smiley
Paw prints are really easy shapes so I just freehanded everything.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Dog paw stockings on: November 24, 2007 07:28:52 PM

(sorry about the camera phone pic.  They're green w/ red, and red w/ green)

I made these tonight for my 2 puppies.  It was really easy and I think they turned out cute. Smiley
The cuff is made of of some weird faux fur, the paw is fleece, and the pads are felt.  They're about the same size as normal stockings.

I want to put their names(Nikki and Kody) on them but I don't know if it would clutter them or not.  Any suggestions? 
Hope you like. Smiley
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 2 still life drawings on: March 31, 2007 02:19:22 PM
These are 2 drawings I did a while ago and I like them the best out of all I've done.  Thought I'd share. Smiley

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / dress styles? on: February 10, 2007 09:47:51 PM
I'm sure this has been asked before, but the search doesn't seem to like me tonight, but I was wondering...what type of dress styles flatter "larger" girls?
Personally, I'm short-5'2. Large chested-DD. And chubby in the tummy (thank you, ovary disease).
Because of my love for the rather retro-50's-rockabilly anything, I've tried a few halter dress patterns, but I'm either making it wrong  or that style isn't flattering.  It makes my slight lack of waist all funky lookin'.
Long story short (too late), any ideas, y'all?   
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pattern modification on: November 14, 2006 07:48:56 PM
So, I really want to make a motorcycle jacket type thing, but I'm not all too good at making patterns from scratch.   So I was wondering, would it work to just slighty modify a peacoat pattern?  You know, just put a zipper in instead of the buttons.
There's a peacoat pattern I think would work well, but I don't want to shell out $20 for it to just screw up.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question about fabric type on: October 26, 2006 04:13:24 PM
So, I bought this really awesome neon leopard print fabric from Joann's a few months ago, but I have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

It's sort of a canvas type (it was in the outdoor fabric part) but it's sort of...more soft than normal canvas.  More cabable of being clothes, I guess...if that makes sense.
Anyway, I've wanted to make a skirt out of it, but since I only look decent in circle skirts, I've put it off.   It doesn't seem like it'd flow well enough to be one.
SO, finally my question.   What kind of skirts (or anything else: dresses, shirts.  I have enough of it) would work for this type of material?   I don't want it to rot away in my fabric stash.

*sorry if the picture's big.  Photobucket is a douche*

That is most amazing.
Oh man, I love the Meat Puppets.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: No, Jack White was *not* my inspiration for this skirt. on: October 10, 2006 07:07:41 PM
It would be most amazing if Jack White did influence it.  Sorry, I'm a bit of a White Stripes freak.   Have to be, we share the same name.  Haha.

Anyway, I love that skirt.  It's soooo cute!
