21  Palmetto Tree wall art in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by OlalalaurenO on: April 05, 2008 04:53:19 PM
If you haven't been to South Carolina, we love our state tree, the Palmetto, a bit too much..we put it on EVERYTHING....clothing, cars, shoes, flags, purses, mailboxes, etc. Our malls have stores dedicated to selling anything with the tree on it. Well this year in my room at school I had a huge blank wall because I was tired of the cheesy posters. So what else would I put there? I couldn't afford the flag (if you've been in college you know..) so I improvised...

Its made up of scrapbook paper on plain white poster board, and sealed with modgepodge. It took about a day off and on and I love it! I get many requests from friends to make them one.

Here is its size in relation to my stuff (don't mind my junk Wink).

Thanks for looking!!

Ok I'm sooooo stoked to share my loot! Rita feel free to post your pics cause I know my crappy flash drowned pics dont do your AMAZING work justice!

The whole shebang

I got the cuuuutest monkey ever!, a blue bear head pin (which is going on my book bag tote), some awesome strawberry ribbon (I'm a ribbon nut!), kawaii stickers and a little lunchbox with I'm guessing erasers?, a hello kitty star stuffy, a CROCHETED cellphone charm (the green puffy box is what it came in!), a Blythe crocheted dress and hat (you could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw this!!)

Close up of the cellphone charm...yes I immediately put this on...how amazing is that detail?? Rita you are the best crocheter of small stuff!

The Blythe dress....can you say OH. MI. GOSH! the detail is extraordinary!! My two girls had a fight over who got to pose...

Addison won...Haidyn was NOT happy

Check out that hat too!! I'm guessing the dress can be worn either way...she's wearing it with the buttons in the back because the slit was showing her goodies to the world and she did NOT like that... Cheesy

The back

aren't those buttons amazing?! And the strawberries are crocheted too!!

The little hello kitty stuffy star has a pouch on the back!! I love hiding stuff...

Again rita thank you SOOOO much!!! I'm am thisclose to done on yours so be prepared!!

Thanks to final exams I am sufficiently behind in posting so I have a few here!

Boys are stupid. NEVER trust them!

What IS it about boys and their toys??

That sandwich looks quite yummy...

This one scanned a little weird, which is why it looks rainbow-y. But I love it!
I mean, not that I illegally download or anything...

I love this one...maybe I just love people who screw uncle sam...and can make a mean balloon animal..

This one is so adorable and its so true!

Thank you all for sharing with me!

Yay! I love this swap if only for the fact I get gobs of mail in my box! I wish this could be ongoing!

I received more!

This card is very lovely! The front has a wrinkled piece of book page with a passage circled and woman's portrait pasted on hard paper (or printed on shrinky possibly?) pasted at the bottom.
FRONT (left side of card): "I thought I was the only one who had these people"
BACK: "The quotation is from Dawn O'Hara by Edna Furber. Thank you, Edna."

The circled passage:

I feel the same. I feel like I would like people I don't know better than those I actually do...but usually they just let you down too...

I totally agree. The same would be expected if we moved to another country...

BACK: "I think who falls into that category is my secret."
Couldn't agree more!

Text: "but, I have love. Therefore, I am on top of the world."
 I love this card. Sometimes all you really need IS love...

My life is exactly the same..thanks so much for this one!

Thank you all for sharing with me!

Finally my pics!!

I have to say I LOOOVE MY TIN SO MUCH! Newyorkdoll picked my Paris theme...

All wrapped up in pretty ribbon

All the goodies!! There is a cute little notebook with Paris on the front which was printed on Shrinky dinks! The covers have a wire wound through it with beads on it and handmade paper inside. There is also a cute Paris necklace (also shrinkies), and a little picture frame with ribbon and another shrinky of paris in it!!

The tin fully open so you can see the continuation of the Eiffel Tower from the top of the lid.

The tin is decoupaged with stickers and magazine clippings that she actually got IN Paris! Its totally Paris authentic! But I'm kind of bummed that the papers on the tin have been to Paris and I haven't...hahaha. She also sent a cute little greeting card with a woman in a Paris cafe with a note to me. This has to be the best swap package EVER!


PS I'm so glad you liked your tin! I was so worried!

I finally got them scanned in. Here's what I received so far!

"I hooked up with my sister's roommate during the summer. He's 22 and I'm underage.  He told me that he'd keep in touch but he never did. I guess now he's an addict working in fast food. I wanted to help him."

"I really wanted to be a virgin 'til I got married...So much for that...We shouldn't have."

--This one describes me perfectly!--

Thanks you all for sharing with me!

30  Retro circle Blythe dress! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by OlalalaurenO on: November 18, 2007 11:41:46 AM
After many many many prototypes this dress is finally done! Its inspired by the new Cloud Nine Bowl Blythe's dress. It was a bit of a pain but I think it has to be the cutest dress I've made!

Thanks for looking!
