1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Record Clock (Tie Dyed Vinyl!) on: December 26, 2007 08:27:05 AM
I love all the record clocks I've been seeing not just on here-but everywhere.
So I thought to myself, I need to get some awesome colored vinyl and make a clock with it for Jay.

I went to thrift stores, no luck this time, so I turned to good ol' eBay.
And found this 7" tie-dye record from the UK.

So I had to have it, I mean-how often do you come across vinyl like that?

I turned it into this:

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ToolBox for the Boy on: December 26, 2007 08:21:33 AM
 Grin This is like my first post to this entire site of something I've made.
Which is rather insane, I've been lurking for over a year and commenting on everyone else's stuff.
I just always forget to post pictures of things I've been making.
But now Christmas is over and I made a bunch of stuff for people for the Holidays.

I bought this toolbox a couple weeks ago to paint foy my boy for Christmas:

And here is how it turned out:

(excuse the mess, it's a bunch of wrapping paper and stuff from yesterdays Christmas festivities)

I think it turned out pretty awesome.

& most importantly-he loved it!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do with 220 meters of Silver Thaw on: July 07, 2007 06:04:29 PM
I bought some Silver Thaw from a semi-LocalYS for $22.
And I don't even know what to do with it yet! haha  Shocked
I just couldn't resist buying it because its so colorful! (5B), that and my friend, Ana, was peer pressuring me...haha.

Anyone used this to make anything super awesome that I should know about?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP ME (yarn substitutions) on: July 06, 2007 09:46:55 AM
I checked out the book 'sexy little knits' from the local liabrary & I LOVE it. (of course!)
My only problem is that some of the yarns in this book are really expensive and I can't afford them right now, plus the only place around here that carries yarn is Michaels (and WalMart, but I don't go there) there is a yarn store about 45 minutes from here but I won't get up there for a little while.
So I was wondering if anyone had made any of the items in this book with a different yarn? That I could possibly get from Michaels? It would be totally awesome if you could help a sista' out! Grin
Is there anything similar to cascade fixation that I can pick up @ Michaels?
(little mermaid top)
or kaalund yarns enchante? cant i make this with something else?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rooster? on: May 02, 2007 07:12:38 PM
Does anyone know any patterns that involve roosters?
My grandmother likes rooster stuff so I thought about knitting her either a little like rooster doll (for lack of better word) or a pot holder or something with a rooster on it.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Knit Mother's Day Gift Ideas? on: May 02, 2007 06:43:07 PM
Ummmmm I was just on the phone with my grandmother and it reminded me that I need to make her something for Mother's Day! Her and my great grandmother (who turns 98 in like 2 months!)
Any cute, quick knit ideas for grandmothers? Please share! Grin Thanks!!!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help Stitch & Bitch Project: Queen of Hearts Bikini on: May 01, 2007 08:55:21 AM
Hello Cheesy
I just started working on the "Queen of Hearts Bikini" On Page #224 in the Stitch 'N Bitch book. I'm a little confused, which can be easy for me, haha  Roll Eyes
On Page 225, where it says to begin the decrease(s) am I to do that after I finish the initial 22 (24,26,28) Rows?
I think so, but don't want to mess up and have to start all over.
Has anyone else made this bikini?
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Help Me Please on: March 03, 2007 05:14:31 AM

Could anyone tell me what this is made out of?
Or what it looks like it's made out of?
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / First Time Multi Layer Stencil...HELP! on: February 02, 2007 05:05:43 AM
I've been stenciling now for a wee bit, but I've never done a multi layer stencil so I could use some help...? I came across one tute on here but the pictures didn't work  Sad.
And then I came across a similar post but everyone that responded said it'd be easier if she posted a picture of the stencil so they could kinda walk her through it or what not.
So I'm taking that advice, this is the stencil I want to do:
Tom Waits

It's for a Valentine's Day gift, so any help would be grrrrrreatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
