21  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Sewing questions... on: June 02, 2007 12:25:09 PM
I see a lot of talk about using surgers (sergers?) as well as sewing machines. 

My questions are...

a) What exactly is a surger (serger?)?

b) What are the benefits of having one as well as a sewing maching?

Thanks in advance!
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Jewlery Storage? on: May 14, 2007 03:12:25 PM
I have a ton of jewlery, especialy since I started working for a jewlery company and that I make my own now, anyway, I need a cool way to store it.  I have a tiny jewlery box but it's too small and hard to find stuff in.  I would love to make something cool, any ideas or suggestions?

24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / All my recent jewlery creations! (IMG HEAVY) on: May 10, 2007 02:01:32 PM
Sorry, I posted each one in its own post not realizing I probably shouldn't have so here it is all in one post!!

A matching set, the charm on the necklace says "Wish Hope Dream"

I call it my tree frog necklace because of the glass leaves and the cute lil frog charm, sorry I couldn't get a close up of the frog, my cam sucks!

These were some cool stone bead things from wal*mart that turned into a pretty cool necklace

Sorry about the bad pic

I call these my Reno earrings because I live in Reno and they are dice...dur :-D

I tore up a pucca shell necklace that I never wore and made some earrings...

I made these to match a necklace I made but they are SO heavy...but I still love them! :-D

I absolutly LOVE these glass leaf (beads or charms?)  They are so cute! 

I think these are really cute, simple but effective.

It's simple but I like it. It's huge because I have fat ankles.  Undecided

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Skull knitting Bag on: April 30, 2007 02:12:40 PM
I made this for a friend and it was originally going to be just a purse but i made it WAY too big.  It's a Knitting/Crochet bag and I also made a matching crochet hook case but my cam died so I didn't get a pic of it.  :-/  What do you think?

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cherry Skull Skirt from Old Cords on: April 30, 2007 02:10:40 PM
I had these old cords that I hated because they always fell down on me and had holes everywhere...now its a skirt (not that you can tell from the pics) that actually fits me.  Sorry for the blurryness.  The cherries on the butt were my first attempt at that kind of thing and I think it came out sort of okay.  What do you think?  Wearable?

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Luau Dress on: April 27, 2007 11:39:11 AM
I made this cute dress for my sis, i love how the straps came out!

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink-A-Dot Bag on: April 27, 2007 11:37:55 AM
I LOVE this bag!  The pictures aren't very good, and it looks WAY cooler in person but I am in love with this bag and I am so gonna propose and marry this bag!   Grin

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / For my wonderful boyfriend... on: April 26, 2007 04:24:41 PM
I really want to make my boyfriend something special but I'm at a loss as to what it should be.  Its not for any special occasion, just becasue I love him and everything he's done for me. 

He's 21 and he loves video games.  He plays games like world of warcraft and all that good stuff.  his favorite color is red.

I've given him some crafty stuff like a book of reasons why I love him and that kind of thing but I'd really like to make him something awesome.
He's got a modern style and he's pretty wonderful.

I have no idea what to make, any suggestions? I'm open to anything.
30  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Altoids Tins? on: April 24, 2007 01:47:18 AM
My mom is addicted to Altoids mints and for some reason I always want her to give me the tins.  I'm convinced I can do something awesome with them but I just can't think of what!  Obviously I can decorate them, but what else?  Any ideas?
