11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / GPS Case (feat. Curious George!) on: July 21, 2011 08:30:13 AM
I had been storing my GPS in a sock... yes a sock... for almost a year before I finally got around to making this case for it.  Works perfectly!  Now my parents want me to make them one.  For the record, using a sock worked fine too, but I guess this is cuter.  Tongue 

What do you think?

12  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 1/3 of a Beach Towel on: July 20, 2011 10:32:43 PM
So... I used most of a really cute teal and white zebra striped beach towel to make throw pillows, but I still have some left.  Way too much to pitch.  I thought about making some coasters but I don't really think thick terrycloth is the best choice for them.  My second thought is to cut the piece in half and make kitchen towels.  I don't need kitchen towels, though.  Ideas?!?!  Huh
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tube top with two seams in front? How?! on: July 17, 2011 08:57:50 AM
I have little experience with this, so someone with more experience can come along and correct me BUT...

I'd say no, your middle panel should be the rectangle (or close to a rectangle) and the side panels will be curved, contoured to your body.  I hope that helps, and these are called princess seams if you want to look up more information.  Also, here is a link to an article with some photos that might give you a better idea of the shapes. http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/14740/princess-seams-and-other-treacherous-curves

Hope that helps!

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: How to add a zip pocket to shorts on: July 05, 2011 08:10:55 PM
What a clever idea!  None of my workout shorts have pockets, much less zippered ones, and I always end up wondering what to do with keys and stuff.  It looks as if the pocket was always there.

Simple but looks so good.

And I like your blog Smiley

What a cute idea!  They look great!  I think I would've slipped mine off of my napkin and onto my finger for fun. Smiley

Your prices seem fine to me (a crafter, but one who knows nothing about resin work).  Very pretty products, too.

I have two adopted lamps that were living in my parents' attic and are now in my living room, but they are not pretty.  The bases are a combination of dark-stained wood and brass.  The shades are a whole other story, but I bought nice new ones that I plan to use.  Anyway, I want to spray paint the bases, but I have spray painted maybe 2 times in my life and I don't know what I'm doing. 

Do I need to sand, prime, or otherwise prepare the bases before painting?

Do I need to use special paint to cover both wood and metal?

Do you have any recommendations of good brands of spray paint (or brands to stay away from)?

Thank you!

It looks great and I love the woodland theme idea.  When I have a kiddo, I think I want to paint a Narnia-themed room! Cheesy
