1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Vintage skis? on: January 27, 2009 03:14:52 PM
I have a new found interest in vintage skis lately, but I need some help with ideas on what to do with them! So far I've thought of hanging them horizontally with L brackets for shelves, laying them flat against the wall and putting hooks on the fronts to hang things from (hats, backpacks, etc), and I saw a cool idea on Etsy to make them into a growth chart.

Any other ideas? Thanks! Cheesy

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Towel Holder Loops! on: July 26, 2007 02:40:18 PM
My friend had something like this in her kids bathroom, so of course I had to copy her! The seashore ones are in my kids' bathroom and the white ones are in our master bathroom.

You just fold your towel in half like normal, but instead of hanging it over the bar so the ends hang down, you hang it with the ends up, and overlap them over the towel bar. Then you can tie your ribbon around it and it creates a "loop" which you can then stuff other rolled up towels into. This is cool b/c then you get to keep your "pretty towels" up all the time, but you still have storage for the towels you use daily. Yay! My friend actually tied her ribbon through the very top of the towels, so that the bow rests on top, on the top of the towel bar. But I wanted my bows to be on the front.

Oh- and I hot glued the flowers/shell bows to metal hair clips so I could easily unclip them from the ribbon if I ever need to take the towels down for a wash. So EASY! and cheap! Wink

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / What paint colors for my DD's room? on: July 16, 2007 11:07:44 AM
This is the bedding set she has...its light blue & white with red, pink, green, and light green accents, and flowers and strawberries. Her walls are currently lavender, that matched her old crib bedding, and I've just never gotten around to repainting.

I really like the light blue, drk pink, red color combos I've seen on here, like in the cherry blossom rooms, etc. I need to make her curtains, too. So should I do blue walls, red curtains, pink & red accents? I also thought about putting a chair rail along the middle of the wall, and painting the bottom half dark pink and the top half blue. Is that too much? :/

this is her bedding pattern (this shows the crib version, but she has a twin bed)

and here are pictures of other things in her room. I just don't know how to throw it all together!!!!

her bookcase that is in dire need of some TLC

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / ARGH...my thread won't go thru the onesie... on: July 12, 2007 11:50:11 PM
what am I doing wrong? I put an iron-on fabric piece on the front and I am trying to embroider on the edges of that. But the thread won't even come thru the fabric...am I supposed to separate the thread into two skinny ones? It seems way too thick to come through the fabric.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / which stitch is best to outline on onesies? on: June 16, 2007 09:17:35 AM
I'm a newbie and I really want to learn how to embroider outlines on the onesies I decorate. I have some with the little fabric cut-out "ties" for little boys, and I'd like to make a line around the fabric to polish it off and hopefully keep the fraying of the material in check. Which stitch is best for this and easy for a 1st timer?

Do I still need to put a patch thingy on the inside/back? Or since its just an outline will the onesie hold up okay?

And what is the stitch called that has a straight outline, but then it also had short little horizontal lines coming out every 1/8 of an inch or so? I saw it on the "rocket butt onesie" thread, the one she used for the sheriff onesie. Thanks! Smiley
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Father's Day / gift for 1st time Dad-to-be? (baby is due in Oct) :) on: May 29, 2007 09:49:49 PM
I have two young kids from a previous marriage, so he is already a Dad to them, too. But this will technically be his "first" baby, and its a boy, and he's just so excited!!!! I have no idea what to do for him for Fathers Day though....I want something special.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / anyone try a swimshirt "surfer boardshirt"? on: May 29, 2007 09:33:40 PM
My friend and I were just talking about how nice these would be for our boys...we live in AZ so that sun is intense! Plus, it'd be nice to apply a bit less sunscreen on them, lol. Wink D you think it'd be hard? Patterns? Material?
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Family Photo Wreath on: May 23, 2007 12:36:07 PM
I made this wreath for my mom on Mother's Day. Actually I bought it as a kit online from Target clearance, under stationary & scrapbooking (its still on there, only $10, $20 total including shipping & handling & tax). Everything comes in a box: the wreath, the photo frame stencils, paper, ribbon. But I bought my own paper to match my mom's decor. It was really easy to make (the hardest part was finding which photos I wanted to use, make them B&W, and print in them right size). I liked it so much I actually bought another one for me afterwards Cheesy

Going clockwise from the top: my mom, my daughter, my son, my brother, me, my husband!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to fix this maternity swimtop? on: May 23, 2007 12:20:42 PM
See how the bottom sticks out soooo much? I realize eventually I'm going to fill that out (haha) Wink but until then, is there something I could sew along the bottom to keep it against my tummy? Just a temporary fix. My kids are already begging to go swimming and none of my regular ones fit anymore. Thanks!
