1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Personalized "Guess Who?" on: December 19, 2006 04:43:11 PM
For my boyfriend's birthday/Christmas present (our birthdays are the 15th and 17th so we combined our gifts for birthday and Christmas and exchanged them last week) I made him a personalized version of "Guess Who?".  I used Photoshop to edit pictures of 24 of our friends to fit into the game.  Here are some pictures so you can see what I mean!

Notice the box cover!

Both boards with a yellow playing card in each one (you draw a card out of a stack to know which player you are).

Yes, there's even a Jesus character (taken from a picture of a bobble-Jesus in my boyfriend's car) and Sven, the plastic dinosaur!

Close-up of me and my boyfriend, front and center.

He really likes it and his family thought it was neat as well!

p.s. If this idea has been done before, I am unaware of it, and thought of this completely on my own! Smiley
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Meat-Themed Valentine's Day! on: December 19, 2006 04:23:55 PM
OK, well I know it's just now the Christmas season, but I'm already planning out Valentine's Day.  I am a vegetarian, and my boyfriend is, sadly, a meat-eater.  We pick on each other about it a lot, so for Christmas I almost bought him this box of bacon bandaids from Fred Flare: http://www.fredflare.com/customer/product.php?productid=2591&cat=307

Sooo, I didn't get them for Christmas, and told him about it after we exchanged presents (our birthdays are the 15th and 17th so we combined the two holidays and exchanged gifts last week).  To my surprise, being that we are 20 and all, he was really disappointed!  So, I told him my brilliant idea that for Valentine's Day, I would give him a meat-themed present, and he will give me a vegetable-themed one.

I'm going to get the bandaids, but I'm trying to come up with other ideas to go with them.  I sew a lot, so I am thinking of making a stuffed piece of bacon with a face or a stuffed steak or something, or maybe a hamburger.  And I also do photography (I'm an art student!) so I'm thinking of taking a series of something like three photos in the meat area of the grocery store and framing them in small frames (even though the thought grosses me out a bit!).

I'm just wondering if anyone else has any great ideas for me!  The kitschier the better, pretty much!  So let me know what you think Smiley

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / College Swap on: October 10, 2005 09:28:11 AM
Would any college students be interested in doing a college swap?  It would be kind of like the "city swap" or "around town" swap, but everything would come from whatever college you go to.  Some ideas would be photographs, flyers if they are interesting, stickers, postcards, etc.  You could be really creative with this!  Basically, the idea would be to experience a taste of life at a college other than your own, and share a little piece of your own college with someone else.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / i heart gnomes on: May 24, 2005 06:31:55 AM
My friend and I have an ongoing joke about garden gnomes...so much so that a year ago we actually bought some!  Mine is Ernest and hers is Rutherford.  We take them places with us sometimes and take pictures of them, just like on the Travelocity commercial. haha  And anyway, yesterday we made shirts...



My hair looks awful so please ignore it...my Chi just broke the other day and I have ordered another one, but for now I just have to make do with a blowdryer and round brush...yuck. Wink
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / san antonio riverwalk tee on: May 19, 2005 08:41:53 AM
This is my favorite reconstructed t-shirt.  I got it at Saver's, just because I loved the coloring and '80s look so much, plus it was in such great condition, only worn a few times.  I get so many compliments on it...everyone's like "Riverwalk is such a great place!  When did you go?"  But truthfully, I have never gone.  Though now I almost feel as if I have because so many people have told me stories about it since I was wearing the shirt. haha

The shirt already fit pretty well, so all I did was shorten the bottom and sleeves and add purple striped trim from another shirt.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I think plaid is in again. on: May 18, 2005 02:21:09 PM
Well, I saw this plaid fabric at the store the other day and fell in love, and since I bought it I've been seeing this pastel plaid EVERYWHERE!  It's kind of crazy.  But anyway, here's my purse...it's a hobo...the shape is a lot nicer in person but I couldn't get it to pose just right for the photograph. :\

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "freak" t-shirt into a sequined tank top on: May 18, 2005 02:16:48 PM
Well, I started out with this $2 DC Talk t-shirt from Saver's...


and with a few cuts, stitches, some fabric glue and sequins, I ended up with...


Sorry that the pictures aren't that great!  It looks much better in person. Wink
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Twinkie Journal on: December 16, 2004 10:16:32 AM
My friend and I have a joke about Twinkies, so I made her this Twinkie journal for Christmas!  I printed pages with Twinkie the Kid on them, bound them together, then made the outside of the notebook from fabric-covered cardboard and ribbon.  I decorated the front with a picture I took of a Twinkie and her name sewn on with a piece of a real Twinkie wrapper sewn on top.
