1  Hair Queen Stylist's Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jennette on: January 22, 2009 09:21:41 AM
I don't sell my crafts, but I love using them to barter with friends.  My friend Nicole is the best stylist evA!  But there is no way I could pay her the $35 that she charges at her salon for a cut.  Luckily, she has style.  Stylists with style just don't settle for plain black waist aprons to hold their tools while they work their hair magic.  They need something with...glitter!!!  So she gets this rockin' apron.  What do I get?  About 6 months worth of hair cuts by someone that understands what I want when I say "short and edgy".  Smiley

behold, glitter

true colors

I used this lovely Craft Apron Tutorial.

2  Lady February Cardi in Knitting: Completed Projects by jennette on: January 16, 2009 12:11:10 PM
Just in time for February!

I'd had this pattern in my queue for a while before I got around to it. 
The yarn is a soft, bouncy bamboo wool.  The specifics escape me and the ball band "bracelets" have long been lost to three year olds.  The color was not my first choice, but it is really pretty when the sunlight hits the bamboo fibers just right.  It was a fun pattern to knit and I am well pleased with the result.

3  Mixed Media Ceiling Tile in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jennette on: October 14, 2008 06:27:15 PM
I "painted" a ceiling tile for my favorite tex mex place in FL. 

The jalepeno is red glitter vinyl.  The flames are cut out and embellished with glitter paints.  The lips I painted (whew) and decoupaged with the flames.  and the green top of the pepper I knit with eyelash yarn and tacked onto the tile.

On the ceiling.  Once it was up I looked at it from all different sides and decided the this was the 'right way' even though while I was working on it I considered the first photo the correct orientation. 

I love glue.  And Mod Podge.  And lots of glitter.  Unfortunately none of the photos captured the shimmer of all the different glitters. The lips were my first painting with oil paints.  I thoroughly enjoyed working on this!

4  'Babies' Shower Invite in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by jennette on: April 08, 2008 05:27:44 PM
I'm normally not paper crafty, so this is my first post on this board.  Hi Paper Craftsters!

My twin girls are two years old.  This is one of the leftover invites I made for my 'babies' shower.

It brought a nostalgic pang when I found these in the closet.  Thank you letting me share them with you.

5  lacy shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by jennette on: February 28, 2008 08:19:32 PM
From Lace Style, the Retro Redux Shrug.

<--  geek  Roll Eyes

I made the sleeves a little shorter and took out the short row shaping in the collar.  I would do it again in a less fuzzy yarn.  Also, after knitting for almost five years this is the first garment that I have actually worn.

6  two animal lovers in animal skirts in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by jennette on: February 11, 2008 11:53:05 AM
I usually try to stay away from making matching clothes for my girls, but when I made one for Summer, Jessa asked for one too.  I used material from too-small tees for the waist bands.

super actiony action shot

7  soccer scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by jennette on: January 28, 2008 06:19:40 PM
A friend asked me to knit her a soccer scarf in her team colors.  I got a little over my head with the intarsia but I'm super pleased with how it turned out.

I know that is more photos than a scarf usually gets, but I worked hard on it!   Wink

by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178362.0 originally done by lindsey goes to eleven.  Thanks for the inspiration ladies.

Mine is knitted with Caron Simply Soft.  (Hats and scarves don't really get worn enough in Florida to warrant the expensive stuff.)  She loved it, I had a blast making it and was super pleased with the result.

Thanks for looking.

9  mini-mini tote bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by jennette on: September 20, 2007 01:10:43 PM
I found some old 100% wool yarn at my thrift store.  Having never tried felting I thought that this yarn (having cost me $.75) would be perfect.  I used this pattern http://www.helloyarn.com/miniskulltote.htm.  This is also the first intarsia I've done.  I really like the way the felting hides some of the imperfections in my working of the design.

standing, after felting

flat, after felting, about 6" tall

flat, before felting, about 10" tall

eww, the insides

(The after felting pictures of the skull look warped only because it is not standing or laying flat.)

10  Re: Dreadlocks in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by jennette on: September 07, 2007 12:21:39 PM
Well, after three weeks i have finally read through this entire thread.  What a wealth of dread info!!  I wish I had found it before I did my dreads the first time.  I used way too much wax and ended up combing them out after less than two months.  I left my hair alone for a while after that, just continuing to use the residue free shampoo and gathering all the tips and tricks this thread has to offer.  Last weekend I finally felt like I was ready.  For the backcombing, for the journey.  It took me about 15 hours spread over three days.  And no wax!  I love my wax-free dreadettes so much.  Before I didn't like to play with them because my hands got all greasy, now I can't stop touching and squeezing them (they are still puffy).  I still have the elastics on the ends, but I plan on wrapping and crocheting them after their first washing this weekend.  I ended up with really long strands of undreaded hair on some of my ends so I was thinking of trimming them before I crocheted.  I don't own a felting needle, but am thinking of getting one to try it on the dreadettes.  How do you guys feel about felting dreads?  Not at all, or wait until they are more mature?

Sorry about the last minute web cam photos.  Here they are, less than a week old.

Tell me what you think!!
