1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / More X-mas cards 2008 on: November 29, 2008 08:41:40 PM
Just thought I would share my Christmas cards, the first craft I've felt was good enough to actually share in awhile! Not that they're anything too special... I could still use some craft schoolin'.
For the front of the cards I downloaded a photo of a burning christmas tree from the deviantart.com stock photo section. I wanted to do something a bit more creative in it with photoshop, but I ended up thinking the image looked best when I simply inverted the colors. I made a bunch of color copies, glued them to cardstock and then stamped some snowflakes and the bird on, followed by glitter glue highlights.

Sorry it's so blurry... couldn't use the flash without too much reflection, and I have some shaky hands.

The inside is the same bird stamp repeated on blue paper and a "seasons greetings" stamp on tracing paper, sewn in with random machine stitching.

And then I made some envelopes. Wheeeee! Roll Eyes

Too bad the envelope picture came out the best... oh well, hope these help to inspire a bit!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / The "le sac" dress on: September 30, 2008 10:22:45 PM
Does anyone know how to make, or have any ideas on how to make, the Le Sac dress from American Apparel? http://store.americanapparel.net/rsa0300.html
Just looking at it, it seems like a really simple and potentially much cheaper idea that one could make themselves. Basically just a shapeless bag with a very long strap, right? But I am uncertain how many entry and exit point there are for the strap, and how much fabric to use. If I used too little, it would probably lose some of it's versatility. Use too much and I'll get lost inside of the thing!
Patterns would be helpful, but aren't needed. Thanks Grin

That is beautiful. I really like it, really really!
4  UNITED STATES / Colorado / Re: Thrift Stores, etc in Boulder (for a tourist) on: July 28, 2008 11:33:40 AM
This may be a bit late, since July is almost near an end! But just in case anybody else is ever vacationing in Boulder and looking for a Thrift store, check out the Salvation Army. I was astonished by how good this thrift store was- I found dozens of clothing re-construction treasures for under $20. It's a couple of blocks north down 33rd from Arapahoe, not the easiest place to find if you don't know where it is.
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Some pendants- RHPS, Kawaii, skulls, etc! on: July 25, 2008 08:17:37 AM
I really dig those! Would be interested in a bit of a tute, if you're willing of course. Did you just put the magazine clipping on to the clay and bake, following with a coat of the shiny shiny stuff?

peanut butter and green olive sandwiches- a carry over from what my dad used to make me when I was a kid.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Best paint for wood furniture on: May 14, 2008 08:30:54 AM
This may seem like kind of stupid question, but I'm a newbie to this sort of craft. I picked up a desk for $25 that has tons of little drawers, so I wanted to paint so that it looks like one of those Chinese medicine cabinents. Don't know if you've ever seen something like that- but I saw one once in an antique store that was painted red, black and gold. So, my question is: what's the best type of paint to use for a project like that? Should I buy, say, a craft paint or a wood paint? Look at the art store or home depot?

Woah! That is brilliant. I'm not sure you're aware of this, but I think you just worked your way into a whole new genre of sexy dress-up nerd fantasy. They would love you Akihabara, the nerd section of Tokyo.

Did you realize when you posted this that everyone was going to worship you? Because they are. Me included.
I'm singing the Trogdor song in my head, and is it just me, or is there a point in the song where Strongbad calls him "Trog-a-dor"? I guess it's time to get myself over to Homestar Runner and relive the magic!

Hey, I actually really like that! It reminds me of those goth music videos from the 90's where they would wear clothing or make-up that would make them look "stiched up."
