1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Prohibition has made nothing but trouble-Al Capone on: March 29, 2010 05:58:13 PM
So the Future Husband and I decided that we didn't want to do the whole white wedding with all the Ooh's and Ahh's. Mainly because this is my second wedding (i've done the whole ooh and ahh before) but we still wanted a wedding because this is his first wedding, and it's always been something he's wanted and something his family would be really disappointed if we didn't do. Because this is the case, we decided on a 1920's prohibition theme with me wearing the black pinstripe suit(well, ballgown designed to look like a man's suit...pics to come) and he's wearing the white zoot suit. And living close to Moose Jaw (google it), it was kind of an easy choice. To keep costs down...well, who am i kidding...because I wanted to do it myself, I've made all of this!
The photo thingers have tested my patience, so they are a little wonkyand out of orderbut its all there. This is my bouquet made out of fake flowers, christmas balls, and pieces of wire twisted with pearl pieces and gems...i made a smaller one to toss. In one of the pics there is a naked torsothat is the FHso its not quite as scandalous as it looks. *wink* There are pics of the card box, the flask garters for me and my girls, including the tosser and a smaller one for my flower girl (which will be filled with orange juice, of course. It was prohibition after all*wink*) There are the mandatory I DO letters, and feather pens for the guestbook which is going to consist of a bunch of ribbons hanging from a curtain rod. When a guest signs they fill out this card and string it onto a ribbon and tie the knot. (pics to follow). I figured it would look fabulous on the wall in my craft room so we can look at it instead of collecting dust on the shelf in book form. The feather head pieces for my girls, who will be dressed like flappers. And our save teh dates that we made as magnets.

C & C welcome!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / it'sa me! It'sa Marrriooo... on: March 18, 2007 03:10:26 PM
Ok, so one day while i was *ahem* dumpster diving...I found this great, old, beatup drafters desk taht was covered in taped on "jesus loves you" inspirational sayings. I'm not THAT girl, so, I dragged that sucker home, spent 3 hours taking all the leftover tape crap off, sanding the adjustable table and metal down for painting. then painted the "legs" red and decided to make it mod with some leftover wall paint from my kitchen. This is all well and good, but something was in the back of my mind nagging at me that my new painting desk just wasn't FINISHED yet. It took my friend's 5 year old walking around screaming (in a fake italian accent) it'sa me! it'sa mario! for it to finally click. the table part is great 'cuz the back lifts up and down making it like an easle.

oh yeah, all the images are hand painted.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / who says big girls can't wear wrap skirts?! pfft! on: March 08, 2007 04:19:57 PM
I'm not a decision maker. if anything, i'm a wiffle waffler...so, i present the skirt that can do EITHER!
pleather, snakeskin looking on one side....
and fun ghosty print softness on the other...
the two together for details...
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / confuzzled but thrifty!(lots of bad phonecam pics) on: March 08, 2007 04:16:54 PM
Ok, so i wasn't sure whether to put this is curvy or here. I've recently put on a TON of weight (thank you divorce and children...very much...lol) and don't have the cash to spend on "big girl" clothes, so...i decided to take to my existing wardrobe. this was a pair of jeans, that no longer fits my Pretty Hot And Thick (get it?) waist, so i was going to expand and make it into a skirt. while pulling it on over my head, it sit nicely as it was around my bosom, and the vampire dress was born..(it makes me feel like blade falling from the building with the whooshes it makes when i walk)
this was an old football shirt that my ex hubby used to wear all the time and i figure hacking it up was the least i could do.. so.....
a REALLY ugly pink tshirt that needed a little...je ne sais quoi...oh yes i do!  a slanty neckline and some tubing from another tshirt sleeves...
and finally, a shirt that used to be ugly blue, hacked off sleeves from another shirt, added to this one, added straps, ironed on a funmonkey, added some silver hole keeper things and voila...instant "i feel hotness".
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My momma told me, to always come prepared (adult content) on: March 08, 2007 04:09:05 PM
ok, so maybe "come prepared" is a bad pun for a purse made completely out of condoms and lube. the strap is made of condoms and hte purse itself is made of the condoms(yes the packages are still sealed so it makes it nice and bubbly feeling((AND INSULATED!!)). the flap over the top is lube. Why did i make a purse out of contraceptives? well a good friend of mine recently found out they contracted HIV, and aids awareness day prompted me to make a bag to carry around to *aid*(another bad pun) in the awareness because everyone asks why...and so the story! wihtout further adieu

*please please please let the photos work, it's my first pic posting...*
