1  Summer's here, and so are new journals! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by soteria on: June 30, 2008 10:34:04 PM
Summer means free time, and free time means new journals!  There are fabric journals with vintage and storybook inspirations, art journals covered with Van Gogh and Monet masterpieces, and even a small paper-covered journal that is fun all around.

2  my split-level attic bedroom! (lots of images) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by soteria on: January 26, 2008 05:53:58 PM

In my first bit of procrastination for the semester, I decided to take pictures of my room to share with you.  Just for fun and because I love my room.

Backstory: This room used to be a walk-in attic in our house.  The ceilings are slanted and there are two floors.  I get two of the three rooms that we made.  It's hard to describe so I'll just show you.

Entering the former attic.

Well, technically this isn't my room.  It's the room next to my room that I use a lot.

This is really entering my room.

Note the slanted roof.

My craft corner.  I always spread everything out and craft on the floor.

My comfy craft pillow!

The craft cubbies that contain all of my crafty goods.

My study corner

The window bench!

The first floor window

My wardrobe

Oh my gosh WHAT!  There's a second floor?!

Why yes, yes there is.

I bet you were wondering where I sleep!  My matress takes up the whole floor!  And can you tell that the bed spread is a forest?  I love it, but no one can ever see it.

Part of my antique collection.  The sugar bowl was my great-grandma's.  I found the owl mug at my favorite antique store, and the dolls are from Amish country!

My shadowboxes.  They were supposed to go on the wall, but I like them better on my upstairs bench.

Looking downstairs from upstairs.

My bookshelf behind my bed.

Knicknacks by my bed.

That was fun!

3  four new diverse handstitched journals in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by soteria on: December 26, 2007 07:53:06 PM
I made journals for all of my family members for Christmas this year because we all love to journal and I was being begged for journals for quite some time now.  So I got them all in one fell swoop.  Sorry for the crappy images.  I hate jpgs.

For my Mom:

For my artsy sister: (filled with drawing paper and watercolor paper)



For my youngest sister: (It's all made of felt, hand stitched and took a long time but was the most fun to make!)

The endpages are from our favorite dinosaur book:

For my classy sister:

4  hooray shoulder bag with TEAL in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by soteria on: August 16, 2007 04:46:03 PM
This is the first bag I've made ever, so it was an experience.  My grandma helped me with the sewing because I tend to sew crooked seams (and she has the sewing machine).  Yes, I'm nearly 20, but sewing and me have only just begun to get along.   I used a pattern but modified it quite a lot.  Um, here's some pictures.  There's a teal pocket on the front, a slightly-hidden pocket on the inside, and everything is lined with teal fabric that I adore.  It came out wonderful and I will be using it as my new bookbag for this semester.

oh, love!
