11  dear interior designers of craftster... (a contest!) in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by x0xmanda on: August 13, 2007 04:02:30 PM
take pity on my broke soul!!

so, here's the deal. my house is, well, a disaster. I, being 16, cannot pay to hire an interior designer and my parents are cheapasses ( Roll Eyes did i just say that?!) anyway i have a huge favor to ask

help us redo our home!

if i like your ideas i'll make you something. Sad probably something small though and a batch of cookies! cuz who doesnt like cookies? haha. oh well, i think you guys will have fun anyway. SO! onto the pictures.

the living room

i'd say its a mess, but honestly it looks like this most of the time. we need to maximize storage.

(view from the fireplace)

the dining room

this room does usually look better but my brother was about to move to college, so this was collecting some stuff.

thanks so much if you're willing to help us out!
i'm mainly looking for
wall color, furniture, storage, curtains, accessories but any ANY help at all would be appreciated haha.
thanks again!!

So i was sooooo bored yesterday because all of my friends decided to go to europe ( Angry) and i decided i would come onto craftster and search for some inspiration.

here it is. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182605.0

mine's a little different, of course, but pretty similar. it was really quick and fun, and (IMHO) cute! so without further ado...

sorry about the links. photobucket is being a pain in the you-know-where and isnt uploading.

13  glue earrings? YES! [img chunky!] in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by x0xmanda on: May 07, 2007 02:59:10 PM
For mother's day, i decided to make my wonderful mommy some wonderful earrings! and (gasp!) they're actually done already... not 15 minutes before her dinner.

anyway, you know how when you were little you made bookmarks by pouring tacky glue onto the top of a hard pencil case? Yea, me neither, but a lot of people said they did.

Well, i figured i could do that in other ways. So I poured some glue onto a clean smooth plastic surface and spread it into a circle. Then i put on beads when the glue got slightly thick. And ring beads up top. Then the glue dried, and i peeled it off, and voila! Earrings.

those babies next to em are gunna be earrings too! yay fried marbles!
oh, i forgot to mention i just poked a hole through the ring beads, added some string and a big bead, and tied it off on the hook. plus there's glitter in the glue.  Roll Eyes hehehhe i love me my sparkles!!

So, do you think she'll like them?

18  most gorgeous dress ever! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by x0xmanda on: February 19, 2007 02:07:05 PM

is that NOT fabulous??
yes, well, the price tag thinks so too. its almost $400, and i just dont have that sort of money. soooo i said, why not make it myself? However i'm not sure how to go about that because i am a beginner sewer and there are some techniques in there that i've never used before. So, my questions
1. is there a pattern anywhere i could find this?
2. can i buy fringe and sew it on in strips, or do i have to make the fringe one by one?
3. the bodice/bra thing... what do i line that with? it looks really stiff and starchy,  almost like you couldnt bend it.

thanks so so so so soooo much. i want to have this dress for my sweet 16 this summer!

19  what color carpet? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by x0xmanda on: February 14, 2007 02:37:15 PM
Soooo what with this cold weather and all, i have decided that i am not satisfied with my hardwood flooring in my room. And its not good hardwood flooring, so dont yell at me. Its pretty crappy and i've even gotten a splinter. So anyway. My mother doesn't agree with my on my color choice. Since she's buying it and has to deal with it when i go to college in two years, she has to like it. I won't tell you what color i want so that you wont be biased. not like you have any reason to agree with me but whatever. onto the photos!

sorry i'm taking up most of them, they werent taken for this purpose. So please try to look at the wall color.

and thats my comforter.
Wall trim is white, and my furniture will be too (once i paint it, cuz none of the wood matches)

So.... carpeting color? Thanks for your help!

20  my first dress. EVER. please look? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by x0xmanda on: January 27, 2007 07:38:33 PM
its not too shabby, if i say so myself. its red, so i feel really confident in it. well... i havent worn it out yet but thats because i just finished it and its too cold. but anyway, it gave me enough confidence to post it up here even though my boobs are popping out. (never thought i say that... double A? ha.) well anyway. it was a giant shirt i got from Goodwill. The collar/neckhole was large enough to fit around my bust and when i unbottoned it it created a cute sweatheart (i think?) neckline. and i pretty much sewed off the sleeves and added some straps from an old bathing suit tied in a halter and thats it. anyway, onto the pics!! (sorry-- they're sideways and a little blurry)

^my bed modeling it

bust detail^

^bust detail on me. sorry, cover up was necessary.

^plain. except i felt kinda naked so...

i threw on some tights. this is the slut version! yay! you cant see my uber-high heels. hehe  Roll Eyes


^the conservative version. probably the way i will wear it... like... ALWAYS. haha. no one besides you will ever see it elsewise lol.

so... really this is my first real sewing project. i've made the pajama pants and some crappy shirts for my dog. but this is the first thing i can wear! yay! i'd love some feedback. what do you think?
