1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / It's not the greatest, but I try... on: May 04, 2006 02:22:56 PM
I'm in photography 1 at my high school, and though I'm not the greatest at it, I love the course. Here a few of my photos... let me know what you think.

There's a spring house in my neighborhood... perfect subject for a few photos:

I actually gave this one to my mom because she wanted it to match one that my brother had done a few years ago:

And this one is an enlarged part of the photo above:

I needed to get another roll done, so one day I told my boyfriend to take me driving so I could tell him to stop where ever so I could take a picture. There was this neat looking mining/quarry company that I had spotted earlier, so I made him drive me all the way across the valley to get a few photos. The results? Well, you tell me:

Along with that adventure, we drove all the back to the other side of the valley. At that point, he was just driving where ever he wanted, and I told him when to stop. We discovered this beautiful tunnel and covered bridge, and of course... I had to stop.

So let me know what you think. I'm open for constructive criticism. Thanks!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I'd like to introduce... a man in a skirt! on: March 28, 2006 01:26:23 PM
So my very good friend and youth leader asked me to make him a kilt for our retreat last weekend. We have a new tradition of dressing up and going out to dinner... so with out further adieu, here's Bush in his kilt!

Now be assured... he's a rather amusing guy, so the whole kilt thing really does suit his style!  Grin We all loved it.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Spectacular Green Flower Necklace on: February 01, 2006 05:07:37 PM
On my vacation this summer, I spent 1/4 of my spending money on beads... Totally worth it too! Here is one necklace I have produced so far:

The large flower and the swarovski crystals were the beads that I found down in OBX. I knew I could find the crystals here, but heck! I wanted OBX swarovski crystals!

I had a plan for this big lug of a bead the second I saw it. It took me forever to get around to doing it though. I really need to restock on my beading supplies. (Which is really what kept me from doing this necklace... and I dropped all my beads in September and had to reorganize everything. I still have a baggy full of homeless beads.)

I also bought the beads because they matched one of my favorite tops perfectly!

This is definitely one of my favorite pieces, so I want to know what y'all think! Thanks for checking it out!

I made this before break started, but I haven't had time to update it. So here it is:

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A room maker over that took over a year on: January 01, 2006 06:25:00 PM
Ha, so yeah I literally started this in July 2004, and just finished it yesterday. So here are some before and afters.


And After:

I posted something on here about a door with the wall paper in it. I finally got around to doing it to the closet door, so hopefully I'll be updating that.

Anywho.. comments?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I'm on a Roll... another skirt on: January 01, 2006 06:03:27 PM
So, I've been bored to death during winter break, and I decided to busy myself with more patterns. I made this same exact skirt for my mom, but she didn't want to model hers tonight. I forget the pattern that I used, but I am almost positive it was Simplicity.

The front, with my fun cowgirl boots.


And back.

For this skirt, I used a tweed. It's a fun fabric, but a pain to work with. My mom used the same pattern view, and used a similar fabric, so we'll match when we wear them. Hopefully I'll get her to model it within the next few days.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I feel like a teacher! on: December 28, 2005 07:29:26 PM
Hey all. I made this skirt from McCall's 4924, skirt A, or B. It was a cinch to make, and I'm so proud of it. The fabric was a suiting fabric, (my mom wanted me to make pants instead) but I managed to make it work as a skirt.

The Front (excuse the smug look, I'm a bad picture taker)

The Back:

Action shot! (It's so much fun spinning around in this!)

And a bad, but do-able side shot:

So, what do ya'll think?

Thanks for checking it out!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Yay! Procrastination! on: December 07, 2005 06:57:05 PM
So, I was procrastinating, like the title says, on a paper I have to write. (Luckily it's due next week...) But anywho, I made two pillows for a friend of mine. We have a small group bible study and at Christmas time, we have a gift exchange. This is what I came up with:

The pillow in front has cherries, and says "Life is just a bowl of cherries." The other pillow has a very French design, and the person that I made this for takes French and is going there in February. I thought she'd like that.

They're actually the first pillows I have ever made, and, though they are smaller, I really like them. I'm thinking I might make one bigger one to go with them. What do you think?
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Guitar Strap Christmas Gift on: November 28, 2005 12:55:25 PM
So, I really had no idea of what to get my boyfriend for Christmas. That's when I figured, "Heck! He plays the guitar... I'll make him a guitar strap!" So I took my old, ugly guitar strap... cut it apart, and used the pieces to make this fun one:

This was the old and ugly one compared to the new one!

Close of of the fabric:

And me... pretending to play. That's my mom's super old guitar modeling the new strap.

And... I'm dancing!

Thoughts? Ideas?

Thanks for checking it out.
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / The Judy Experience! on: September 18, 2005 08:57:05 AM
I guess I should explain this all before I show the pictures.

In March, my youth group went on a retreat to OC, Maryland, to a convention. (I wasn't able to go because it was my sister's wedding.) Everyone who did go to the retreat though, was missing our High School's semi-formal. Two girls in my youth group declared that they were dressing up in "semi-formal" attire at the convention, and having the event there. Everyone else decided to do so as well!

My youth group also has a tendency to cling to old insults... like "Your Mom!" (This will come in later.)

Alrighty... everyone dressed up, and Kim (one of the leaders) and another youth (Jillian who comes in later too) did a few guy's hair... Two of them our youth leaders, and one was a youth. When the three of them got together, they looked like a band. (See picture below:)

In order: Chris (Youth, my boyfriend!) Bush (leader) and Dave (leader)

So here is where the "Your Mom!" part comes in. See, Dave is the Youth Leader/Pastor/Minister what have you, and we all have a tendency to make fun of his mom, Judy. I guess Bush came up with the idea to call themselves "The Judy Experience" because of it...

So my friends Jillian, Karen and I took it one step further. We decided to be their groupies!

We bought t-shirt's and tie-dyed them, ironed the Judy Experience picture on the, and wrote on them. Here's the end result:



And we got them signed, but it's hard to read:

On Friday, Chris and his friend were playing at a youth function (TGIF), and the three of us wanted to go as groupies. (Which slightly explains the "That Guy" thing... if you go to a concert and wear a shirt from the band that's playing at the concert, you're considered "That Guy") Before TGIF, the three of us wore sweatshirts so no one could see our shirts. When we all go there, we took them off and acted like crazed fanatics!

Here's the three of us together:

All in all, it was a good time, with lots of laughs. Oh! And we decided to bring these shirts to every retreat that we go on. I think it's also going to be our halloween outfits!

A long post, I know, but what do you think?
