1  Day of the Dead paper mache Sugar Skull with pictures! in Halloween Decor and Parties by ElleBee85 on: September 01, 2008 09:57:01 AM
Hopefully I'm posting this in the right place...

Anyway, so my grandpa passed away in 2005, and I've been wanting to make him a calaca, (sugar skull) in honor of his life. So here is my first attempt at a paper mache sugar skull! And not to sound snotty, but the pictures do it no justice... it changes the colors and makes it look kind of bland! Oh well, here they are! Smiley

I forgot to take pictures of the back of the head, but it just gives the dates that he was born and passed.

2  Gallon jars?? in Winter Holidays by ElleBee85 on: August 28, 2008 02:33:57 PM
So maybe you guys can help me!
I purchased these amazing glass gallon jars last year to give infused cranberry vodka to family members. Unfortunately, I wasn't quite thinking when I ordered GALLON bottles and exactly how much vodka that would take. ($$$$) I ended up only being able to afford to make one gallon of cranberry vodka which was to die for. But anyways, now I'm stuck with 12 beautiful gallon bottles. I want to give them away filled with something for Christmas, but does anyone have any ideas?? Or any recipes for holiday punch that might look pretty in something like this:

Thanks so much! Smiley

3  Negative and Slide Sleeves?? (picture) in What the heck can I do with THIS? by ElleBee85 on: May 31, 2008 12:27:55 AM
Hey guys!
So I have a TON of slide and negative sleeves (I used to work in a photo department, and they were throwing them all away since we went digital, but being a photo student myself, I couldn't let them go to waste!) Anyway... so I have a ton of these things, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to use them??? I searched, but nothing came up!
This is what they look like. Some of them have individual pockets for slides, and some of them have long sections made for strips of negatives...

5  Frida Kahlo and Dia De Los Muertos Bubble Magnets * IMAGE HEAVY * in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by ElleBee85 on: February 04, 2008 09:40:00 AM
Ok, so I know that these must be the most popular thing to make, but I looove them, and this weekend I made Frida Kahlo and Dia De Los Muertos ones! I think I might try making a few into charm bracelets and necklaces.

Some of them turned out better then others, but I thought that they were all post worthy. Haha.

6  Cranberry Vodka (labels) in Winter Holidays by ElleBee85 on: November 02, 2007 03:59:10 PM
Ok, so my boyfriend and I have decided to make home made cranberry vodka for Christmas gifts this year. Well, homemade as in mixing the 2 together and bottling it, not really making the vodka itself. Haha. So I've been doing a lot of research on the vodka and stuff... and it takes 4 weeks to sit before you can drink it, so I tried to incorporate that with the labels (28 on the bottle for 28 days). Also, since vodka is Russian, we thought we'd put the word "cranberry" in Russian on the front. (I translated the word, so if anyone speaks Russian, feel free to tell me if this is not correct!!) I ordered the jugs today and as soon as i get them, we will start making them, but I just wanted to show my labels!! Let me know if you see anything that could be bettered or changed! Smiley

7  Lip gloss names in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by ElleBee85 on: November 01, 2007 12:07:23 PM
Ok, so I am making some home made lip gloss for christmas gifts, and I will be making small stickers/lables to put on the top of them. But I cant think of a clever name to put on the front.... this is a VERY rough sketch of what the front is going to look like... but instead of just writing "Lip Gloss" on the side of the skull, i wanted something more clever! Does anyone have any ideas???

8  Pillow Case Apron! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ElleBee85 on: June 25, 2007 02:07:03 PM
Well, I completed my pillow case apron! I gave it to my boyfriends mom for her birthday and she loved it. I know that the sewing is pretty bad, but I love it! I'm so proud that I did it all by myself. I found the awesome tutorial from here:

(The last one is my lovely boyfriend modeling it)

9  Basic sewing/Pattern questions!! in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by ElleBee85 on: June 18, 2007 11:08:30 AM
Ok, I'm not sure if this is posted in the right place, but I was wondering if any of you could help me with this...
I've just started sewing and last night when I was cutting my pattern out, I saw some symbols that I didnt know what meant. Maybe they dont mean anything, but I dont want to do anything wrong....

What do the circles at the top mean??

What are those triangles for?

Sorry if this is a stupid question! I looked through the directions on the pattern and it didnt say anything about either.
Thanks for your time and help!!
