robot tie

Forgive my work webcam pic, I'll post better pics of this soon with my friend modeling.

This is a tie I found whilst cleaning my mess of a room recently. It was going to be a gift for someone else, but the idea was too awesome to let gos. My Valentine, Dennis, promised to wear it all of the time if I made it, so here it is.

I drew the robot, then most of the pencil wiped away, so this was pretty much freehanded. Haha.

The robot ended up bigger than I planned (his claws extend on the other side of the tie) and there are only two claws per hand (I have been informed that robots have at least 3 claws on each hand). But, hey, I'm learning.

Anyone know where I can get cool blank ties to play with?

Here are two headbands I made this past week. The first is the hipster headband that I've seen all over the interwebs. I took the leftover fabric from my Lebowskifest shirt and made a braid. The second one is inspired by a $15 headband I saw in the maill that I recreated for $2. Ha, take that. :)
My friend Elizabeth gave me a lomo, so I'm currently falling in love and taking 35mm pics. If anyone knows of any good lomo sites, hook me up.

On Friday, I made a t-shirt for a friend's birthday party that was "The Big Lebowski" themed. It's not too impressive, so no pic (for now?).

Saturday, I made this lovely: a brownie pizza. My grandma used to make me one for special occasions growing up and it's one of my favorite desserts ever. I just had to veganize it!

The crust is a double choc brownie mix with cherries, the sauce a vegan buttercream frosting, and topped with blackberries, kiwi, and mandarin oranges. It was pretty tasty. I think that I put my Grandma to shame. :)

Oh, and I have purple hair. Yay!

here is the tote bag that i embroidered for my dear friend, Shelby S. it doesn't feel complete. i need to clean it up (some of my pencil marks are still on it), but i want to do something more with it. suggestions?
it's my first tote bag to embroider and i used cotton ease yarn so that it would be washable.

and because i'm all about kids with cameras, here is a pic that my 3 year old friend, Althea, took of me

Sickness and the first week of school kept me from crafting. I am still working on a friend"s gift, but it is not quite done yet.

Right now I have a crush on these tights

I'm trying to figure out how to make them. Anyone have any ideas?

I slept half of today away. The only thing I made from scratch and finished was cornbread.

However, I'm working on something for a friend that should be finished by tomorrow that I'll post soon.

scrap or bust!

staying true to my word, here is a record. 5 scrapbook pages in about 2 hours.

In the year twenty ten

I decided to do Craft or Bust 2010. For a few years now, I have been wanting to do a craft blog and maybe joining this will help me.

A little about myself: I am 25, I live in Arkansas, and I am into many crafts. I knit pretty basic stuff, I have mad scrapbooking skills, I make some jewelry, I bake vegan goodies, and I am learning how to embroider.

School starts this week, so I am not sure how much craftiness I can get done, but I will certainly try!
