1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Portfolio Submission Question (Please help) on: August 11, 2006 03:14:42 PM
So, now that I know I am accepted to ASU, I have to submit a portfolio the to College of Design. I am really unsure of what to submit. I have many pieces of art, ceramics, revamped furniture, sewing projects, ect. but no major "interior projects". Does anyone have any suggestions, because I am very unsure of how to go about it.

I love this idea!

How did you attach it? Could you possibly post a tutorial?

Again, great job!  Smiley
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Long distance Valentines? on: January 22, 2006 05:22:52 PM
Aw, I know how that one is... my boy is far from me too.

For Christmas I made him a picture frame out of clay with his favorite picture of us in it. It was zebra with three bright red hearts on it that said "Emily"Loves"Tony" on them... He loved it, and it was such an easy idea. I suppose if you couldn't find clay, you could just paint a wooden one, and put hearts on it. But, yes, that was a great present for my boy that is so far away because it was so personal.

I hope that helped you a bit. Smiley

Wow, thanks to all those great comments.

those clocks are amazing!

did you stencil out the images or paint them freehand?
I free handed all but the Aquabats face... I am horrible at drawing people.

the chair would look really nice, if you did red around it  (not that the blues not awsome!)

The reason it is blue is because I recovered this old ottoman in the leopard with blue. I thought it would be a nice match.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Aquabats, Bouncing Souls, Horrorpops Clocks and a leopard chair. on: December 23, 2005 12:31:57 PM
The idea came from Jezebelfreek, with the clocks she made. I loved the idea, however, I thought all of the black didn't seem to balance out the value. So, here are the Christmas presents I made my friends. (I made a bunch of them, but these ones I loved the most.) These were all painted with acrylic then sprayed with a matte finish. The clock pieces I just took out of clocks from the 99 cent only store, my favorite place.

Aquabats for my great friend, Amanda. I originally made her something different, but we were going to see the Aquabats, so I wanted them to sign it for her.

The Bouncing Souls clock was for my boyfriend, Tony. Since it turned out so great, I told him this is the one thing I get back when we break up. (Not very optimistic, but I just think its amazing.) The Horrorpops is for my friend Kendra. It just seemed like an awesome thing to paint. (Don't worry, I put another coat of white paint where it looks kind of orange before she got it.)

This chair I just picked up at a thrift store for 5 bucks. It was tan and really dusty. I sewed the leopard on the canvas (not an easy job) and painted the black with acrylic. I spray painted the frame blue. I love it!

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 50's ottoman... now gorgeous? on: October 15, 2005 03:10:50 PM
So I picked this up at a thrift store, $3. Assuming it was from the 50's (since they had that weird plastic fabric back then on everything) I had to get it. However, it only looked good from far away.


So I made a nice cover from a big blue dress and sleeves from a shirt.


Think its any better?

I love it, having a as my husband calls it a jlo booty I like my bottom to have more coverage than bikini bottoms and the color is adorable. I have sewn a lot of dance cotumes involving spandez ans stretchy fabirc and here are a few tips. I helps to stretch the fabric a bit as you sew it and to use a zig zag stitcj instead of a straight stitch and if you can afford a serger buy one. I have had one for over 12 yrs and its one of my prized possesions.

Ah yes, the Jlo booty... exactly why I made the bottoms short.

Thanks for the tips... I had to do a few finishing touches, and those helped me alot. Smiley

I love it, and now am so inspired.  It looks pretty simple, did it take long to complete?  Lovely!


Very quick... I just kinda did it yesterday. Smiley
