1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Summer's here, and so are new journals! 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.

Oh yay, I'm glad you all like my room.  Cheesy  It was a long time in the making.  We planned it when I was in 8th grade but it didn't get finished until the end of my senior year in high school.  But now I'm in my third year of college and I can't bear to leave it.  It is SO cozy and wonderful!

i love the room

veinna prelude is a very good book, by the way. I greatly admire your book collection

Haha, thanks!  That's only a few of them.  I am definitely obsessed with books.  I just can't stop reading or buying them.  Smiley

I have a bear just like the one with the bow tie.  Mine's named Honey Joe.

How funny! 

I just have to reply about the teddy bear with the red bow. I have one just like it. I bought it at McKay's grocery when I was 3 years old! My mom made me save up and save up for him! I still have him, only he's my daughter's Joe-Bear now :-D

I love it!  My mom bought him for someone else in a grocery store when I was little, but I held on to him and loved him from the start, so she didn't have the heart to give him away.  He's been my best friend ever since.  Did he come with the name Joe or something?  Because I'm noticing a trend here..

That bear that you said was your oldest and dearest friend... I had one just like him, his name was Franklin!

Except for you and your Franklin!  Wink
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / my split-level attic bedroom! (lots of images) 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 bench upstairs.

My bookshelf behind my bed.

Knicknacks by my bed.

My bears Smiley

Glide the dolphin, Jojo, my oldest and dearest friend, and David.

That was fun!
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / four new diverse handstitched journals 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:

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / hooray shoulder bag with TEAL 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!
