1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / toothpick and string god's eye mobile (image heavy!) on: July 06, 2008 03:58:34 PM
I made this mobile out of toothpicks, embroidery floss and a brass ring I had for god knows what reason. I am incredibly happy with how it turned out.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Graduation Announcements on: May 16, 2007 06:34:20 PM
I'm making my own graduation announcements, and I've been trying to think of a funny saying for the inside...something a little different from the usual "We are proud to announce the graduation of ______." Any ideas?

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Polka Dot Shirt From 80s Prom Dress on: March 21, 2007 08:10:41 PM
This was an incredibly ugly 80s prom dress, complete with large shoulder pads and a ruffle on the bottom (no before pictures, sorry). You'll just have to take my word that it was completely hideous, and give me your thoughts on whether or not the end product is an improvement:
