1  Pirates and Abe Lincoln in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ThisChiq on: May 12, 2007 02:56:24 PM
My first attempt at stenciling was for my Pirates of  the Caribbean swap. This is what I made for my swap partner. It's on the left shoulder part of the shirt.

My 13 year old sister was so impressed by it that she asked me to do this one...

I have NO CLUE why she wanted Abe Lincoln but she did and she loves it. Hahaha. People ask her, why? She says cause its cool.

I guess she sure showed them  =)   Not too shabby, aye?

Thanks a ton for posting pictures for me! I'm gonna elaborate on yours and show some more of the awesomeness!!
((BTW the little skull guy came out a LOT better than the picture on the package. Never would've thought to use it as a pin cushion hehe))

Full View of the AMAZING! punched bag. The jewelry around it was a great touch. I get a lot of comments on this guy.

Close up of one of the pages. The others had CUTE little parrots with eye patches and such. Soooo cute and the recipes are great! I like the Undead monkey mango sauce  =)

Close up on the beaded barrettes in action   hehe   I like these soo much.  I bought some material for the swap that I didn't get to use so now its going to be a bandanna. I'm gonna wear these with the bandanna to the premiere in Hollywood. ((I have to go in full dress now, don't I))  I think WYOKrista made these about 2' long. My hair's still longer =D but I think it looks good to have the really long items kinda tucked in there.

She did such a great job on everything. Even tho she said she goofed on the candle, I think it still was pretty darn cool.

Thanks again WYOKrista!!

Again, no worries on the last part of the package. I'm more than impressed by what I saw in the first place.

Lets see what I can find...

Little drawstring bags. I wanted to do a rolled knitting holder thing but I nearly pulled out all my hair from frustration so I figured I'd practice a lot before I sent something like that. Thougth this'd be handy for Kitn's knitting or jewelry making.

Reconstructed T shirt. This material is Sooooooo soft ((Sorry I had to wear it but I had to see how well the ties would hold)). V neck front and back.

The outside of the tote bag ((Black cordoroy with polka dot red lining. Vintage. So cool Very sturdy... I hope  =D  ))  This took FOREVER as I am stubborn and refused to use a pattern. 3 layers. Hand drafted. No pattern.

Inside of Kitn's bag with at little peace symbol

Her Finding Nemo "Necklace" Bead is the top right corner. I did it purple especially for her. The one under it that says U ROCK was gonna go to her too but it didn't seem appropriate for some reason...

I also sent her samples of cruelty free/Vegan beauty products that work gave me when they heard of my swap. Thanks to my manager for those bits.
I went a bit crazy writing on the bag. I wrote a few quotes on her bag about Social Activism.  Hope you liked Kitn!

I received my things today! Kitn did such an AMAZING job. Haha. I'm wishing I received first and sent late so I could've matched her awesomeness   hehe   

My mom and sister were sitting at the table when I opened it. There were a lot of oooos and aaaawes. My sister (who works at a jewelry store) says that these babies would sell for about $50 a pair bacause of the quality of the items and the cost of the gems. I LOVE them!

The 3 Goodies all together

I took the pictures outside but even that lighting didnt do them justice. Also, my dog ((who is such a camera ham)) was whining while I took these. He was fine when I took a picture of him.

haha  Weirdo. What's with dogs and jealousy of crafts?

6  1st attempt at M&P in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by ThisChiq on: March 07, 2007 06:44:14 PM
Sweet! I did get a little crazy tho.

(L to R) Green glitter Cucumber melon, Plumeria and Oat w glitter, 2 obligatory army men plumeria with glitter, red dye w plumeria, Coffee and cheerios ((Ok, my reasoning at 3 am was coffee is supposed to "awaken" your skin cells the way it would if you drank it and I figured the cheerios would exfoliate well. It looks like a lump of tobacco  Eew. Smells good tho.)) and the last is "hot chocolate" made of cocoa powder, vanilla fragrance and stirred in sugar. Sugar = exfoliant.

7  Be nice. It's my first tote ((no pattern)) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ThisChiq on: March 07, 2007 06:25:56 PM
So I made this tote as a gift. I did it without a pattern and it's the first time EVER that I've made something that came out exactly how I imagined it.

It's black cordoroy with red material with white polka dots. The material is from the 60s.  =D
Inside of the bag. This is the pocket.

Finished product:

Mine are silly.

This is what happens when a 19 year old has a credit card. Hehe. This was my first. It's from a Strawberry Shortcake sticker I found at work. When I was 19 I had a weird obsession with strawberries... You can see where it started to hurt cause the double thick outline gets wiggly. Hehe

This is my second. I was a musician for 9 years. I went with my fiance (at the time) and he paid. He said to get whatever I wanted as long as we got the same color scheme. I got the crome music note with the pixie dust in the back. Originally I had bublegum pink and battleship grey as the dust but it looked like I didn't shave well and I had irritated stubble. HA!  Scuse the black-out. I Covering up the pant wrinkle. Both tats are low on the hip area above the pubic bone
