1  Re: Ideas to spruce up my plain wedding dress, please! Photo heavy-ish in Weddings and Bridal Showers by tiffett on: December 28, 2010 01:45:35 PM
Thank you so much for all of the ideas and words of encouragement! I'm really excited to make this dress "mine", I think I am set on sewing some flowers and beading onto it.

Here is  a picture of flower detailing on a dress I tried on and LOVED, the only reason I didn't get this dress was because it was, of course, more money and it looked a bit "prom-ish" as my sisters said; it didn't have a train, etc.... But I loved the beading and flowers on it, I really want something like this on my dress but I'm just not sure how to do it. Ideas?

3  "The Hardy Boys" Wall Clock! What Happened At Midnight [Pics] in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by tiffett on: October 01, 2007 04:38:11 PM
I was at the antique store a few weekends back and I found a big ole collection of old Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books so I had to snatch some up. Once I got home and started looking through the books a bit more I found "What Happened At Midnight" and I just new that it's fate was to be a wall clock....

I used this tutorial from instructables.com http://www.instructables.com/id/Literary-Clock/

So, whatcha think?!

4  A Polky-Dotty Memory Board! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by tiffett on: September 27, 2007 04:43:35 PM
I got bored the other night and turned some coarkboard I had into a memory board. It's my first memory board and I'm happy with the way it came out. I really wanted one but hated the ugly ones at the store. I already had everything I needed so I didn't spend anything on it! ^_^


I haven't put anything on the back to mount it yet. I'm not quite sure what to use?  Undecided

Maybe just some string?

Trying on *ahem* "His" schoolgirl skirt.... *blush*

He absoloutely loved it. He said it is the most thoughtful gift anyone has ever given him. My work here is done! ^_^

6  2nd Stenciled Shirt: DAWN OF THE DEAD [For the boyfriend] in Stenciling: Completed Projects by tiffett on: September 06, 2007 08:23:23 PM
Eep, so I am in LOVE with stenciling. I did my first last night [see Nancy Drew shirt] and tonight I made one ofr my boyfriend who is a zombie-fan. His favorite zombie movie is the original Dawn of the Dead thus he got a DOTD t-shirt. I got the stencil from http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v673/star_stencils/Movies/.

I got the shirt at CVS [5 shirts for $10, I couldn't pass it up! They're pretty good quality as well.] and I used black Jaquard textile paint.

7  First Stencil: NANCY DREW in Stenciling: Completed Projects by tiffett on: September 05, 2007 08:24:37 PM
So, this was my first attempt with stencilling and I'm quite happy with the results with a couple exceptions. I just used an old t-shirt I had lying around and the Nancy Drew stencil from this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=125697.0) post. I absoloutely LOVE Nancy Drew but theres not much out there in the way of.....er, showing love for her so I am ecstatic about this shirt! Cheesy

Here is the end result:

My boyfriend asked me to point out the entertainment center he built himself (with no plans or anything) and his Lego models. lol. He's very proud of his Legos. ^_^

So, whats the verdict? Did I do well?

8  Re: Zen Mario Garden [Warning: GEEKY] in Completed Projects by tiffett on: August 14, 2007 09:16:15 AM
I LOVE it!
Where'd you get the little Mario and Yoshi??

I actually ordered them on Ebay. They were cheap and got here fast. ^_^

I just searched for mini Mario figurines.

I'm actually thinking about buying a big lot of the figurines on ebay again, to take care of that "something missing". It has a lot of the characters.

I already have Mario and the turtle.....but you can never have too many. :p

9  Zen Mario Garden [Warning: GEEKY] in Completed Projects by tiffett on: August 10, 2007 04:10:48 PM
Ok, so I'm doing one of those "In-A-Box" gifts for my boyfriend's birthday, I decided to do Japan in a box. While he doesn't really dig the whole meditative zen thing he DOES like playing in sand AND Mario! Thus.....The Mario Zen Garden!

I still think it needs a little something more. Maybe some stones....or blocks painted like the question mark boxes?

Anywho, what do ya'll think?!

10  First Purse: Green Hearts Pleated Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tiffett on: July 27, 2007 04:28:06 PM
So, here is my first attempt at making a purse (& also my third attempt sewing.) I know I made a lot of mistakes but all in all I'm content with the finished thing. I can only get better.

Right....?  Huh

I used this tutorial also, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49030.msg452122#msg452122. Albeit I didn't follow very well..... :p
