3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / dog swap???? on: May 31, 2008 07:25:44 AM
How about a dog swap? I saw the daschund swap, but i don't have one.  Sad My baby is a pit bull. I guess the partners could be matched based on the breed of dog, so all the doxies can be paired together, etc. I would organize, but I'm kind of afraid to because I've never organized before. Would someone be interested in helping me?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / the night sky! 3 pics on: January 25, 2008 07:24:44 PM
My aunt bought me this fabric when I went to visit (her daughter-my cousin- introduced me to this site!), and I made curtains! aren't they gorgeous? The fabric came from wal-mart- I only had 5 panels, so I used the beige curtains I already had as a filler.

each panel says "those who dream touch the stars"

ceiling shot!

My gorgeous ceiling took forever to paint! I had to use satin finish wall paint because ceiling paint wouldn't be dark enough. Textured ceiling + roller + special roller cover = still too much effort! It's actually a very dark purple. I used white acrylic paint for the stars. Originally, I was going to be super awesome and paint the constellations on my ceiling. 2 issues there: my ceiling isn't round (as the constellation charts were), and it's very hard to precisely star when one is craning one's neck to do the ceiling from a wobbly ladder. So, I winged it. (I get to make up my own constellations now, too!  Wink )You know those peel and stick glow in the dark stars? Well, they fall off of textured ceilings, hence the painted stars. I used the plastic stars to make stencils, large and small, and bought a medium star stamp. Shazaam! Starriness!  Shocked

What do you all think?
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / period costume on: January 25, 2008 07:11:10 PM
I made this a while ago for a foreign language fair. Historically accurate (as allowed- I didn't use whalebone for the hoops), and an altered pattern. It's based on what Catherine of Aragon would've worn when she came to England (she was Henry VIII's first wife). The hoop skirt was a major pain, and I sewed one of the sleeves on upside down and didn't realise it till we got to the competition! My sewing machine died about a week before the competition, but my mom came through and exchanged it for me. I entered it in the state fair, and it won first place! w00t! anywho, on to the pics:

This shows the colour best.

The main dress is made of brocade and lined with silver satin. The hoopskirt is pink stain with purple velvet trim around the bottom. There's also a chemise made out of undyed muslin. I didn't use grommets for the neckline lacing; I used little rings from the jewelry section at the craft store, and handsewed them in.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / valentine's swap? on: January 25, 2008 04:13:05 PM
I haven't done 2 swaps yet, so I can't start one, but....who thinks it'd be a good idea?

A swap for singles, or those who just want to spread the love!  Kiss

I dunno, what do you all think?  Huh

All the crafts would relate to theme of course. Maybe a few small things, or a small and a medium? idk, just throwing out ideas here.
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / satin spanish book (MANY IMAGEZ!!) on: August 10, 2007 03:42:38 PM
My spanish teacher made us write a book in spanish for kids. So, I did. I made mine from scratch. I used cardstock for the covers, and covered them in silver satin. I used cotton resume paper for the endpapers. I stab-bound the book, with white yarn. I used some leftover trim from a costume to make a tie for the book. The tie is a long piece of black trim with a silver thread. The faerie illustrations are linocut prints. So is the butterfly. I hand illustrated each page using acrylic paints. I put a butterfly in the corner of each page and put the page number inside.

Anywho, pic-a-tures!

 The front cover (It's kind of hard to see in the light.)

I used the resume paper for the dedication page, too.

Thanks for looking! It's not great quality, but I did spend an entire night on it (procastination, what can I say?).
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ugly pants into sultry shirt on: March 08, 2007 07:15:30 PM
So, my aunt decided to give me an ugly pair of pants that she didn't want anymore.

After gathering dust in my closet for a few years, I decided that I should create something, if only to prevent the waste of fabric.

So, I ripped open the inseams...

and cut out a tube...then I went through about two or three fittings of myself, so I could take it in to fit my shape. Then, I took the zipper from the pants and put it in the back in a seam that was as long as the zipper. Unfortunately, this didn't look too hot. So, I partially ripped two seams so the fabric could fall naturally, and I added a black ribbon. Then, I cut up a scarf that in another life was attached to a hair clip. The edges had a nice black flower lace-ish thing, so I cut that off and sewed it to the top and bottom of my shirt. This whole process took 3-4 hours...




excuse the crappy pics...I forgot to put the flash on.  Undecided
