About

I've finally got round to attempting crafts again. For at least a year my craft boxes have sat and stared at me crying out to be explored and discovered again. So here it is my new attempt to get back to crafting!

I'm like that too! i always have tons of different projects going on. i kinda get bored if im just working on one thing. but with the quilt, you just have to throw yourself into it and eventually you'll get it done. Happy

Hi there!
I just have read you had problems with frayed ribbons. You just need to pass it through a flame (the upper zone, the orange one) for about 2 seconds and that's it. Hope it helps. Happy
I love your fascinators...

Hey there...Sorry for my late reply...
Well I have got a friend who knows a lot of making a website..
But right now i have only a little myspace-shop with my boyfriend together ( http://www.myspace.com/8bitmonkeys) and a Dawanda shop ( http://de.dawanda.com/shop/JessayahX) too ... We also have a little Ebay shop...It is mostly made for our own...We haven´t got much people who buy that stuff...
But I never had any doubt if the things are good enought to be sold on an own shop...
I´m working on some clothes which I want to put on my page too.
I have a lot of stuff which I haven´t posted yet..
Well I think things will work better when I separate the JessayahX DIY shop and the 8-Bit-monkey-Shop ;)
I haven´t made a lot of promotion for it,because I haven´t finished my page yet.
You must put a lot of work in your stuff and of course you have to continually improve the things(and yourself)..
But that will take its time..so don´t worry...
I think you can definitely sell your flamingo brooch somewhere ;)
It is really sooooo cute ^^

Here is the link for some cream millinery net, I think the same ebay seller does black and other colours as well. I have just been making a cherry print dress, will have to take some pictures of that. I don't think I'd be very good at how to's though as I tend to just make things up as I go along!

Thank you! I could try to do a tutorial but there's not much to teach. All I did was find an image I liked on the internet, drew it onto the fabric, and started painting with fabric paint. The brand I use is Jacquard.

Hello! I like your fascinators-I've been meaning to make some myself, but keep forgetting to actually get round to it. I bought some of that net like they used to have on hats for them, the kind with the big black velvet-y dots on.

Hello!
Thank you for the favorite in the decoupage binder. The images were from old magazines in my grandmother's house, actuallz they were my mom's, from the late 60's I guess. Sorry for taking so long to answer, I'm actually on a trip right now so it's not easy to get internet access. Also I love your flamingo brooch, you should do some tutorial!

So glad you're enjoying the site. Yeah, I think with crafts it can be a lot more satisfying because you get results a lot faster and you don't always have to put so much hard work in. It's also easy to tell if your work is turning out good sooner on.

I wouldn't say I miss film as such, at this time in life, crafts and journalism feel like the right thing - but I'm sure I will return to film later on. Saying that, we have been working on Cut Out + Keep TV and hope to have episode 1 out soon - it's going to be a video podcast style thing with video how-to's

I think I'd love to do animation too, but it seems like such hard work. Do you have anything you've made on the internet?

Heeey ^^ Thanks for beeing my friend...
I really love your flamingo broche because I love kitsch and cute stuff.
I really adore rockabilly and psychobilly stuff too and going to start my own DIY online shop very soon..
But I still haven´t finished the webdesign and a few pictures..
So I have to work a lot this weekend ^^*g*
Do you know that there is an ice sort with an ice stalk which is in the same bone design like the you used for your leopard print bone hair slides project?
^^ ..I wish I could remember the name of it oO Happy
Nice Greetings..

I love it when people dare to do something wild to their hair color! Happy London-bus-red must have been really cool on you Happy and smart side-effect to never get lost in clubs ;)
Yeah the cat on my picture is my cat.. we found her outside after New Years Eve.. she was only a kitten then and we gave her some food and water. So she probably decided we were nice people and moved in with us Tongue
I've posted a picture of her on the board in the "pet" thread. Happy Do you have any cats?

Hey Taz, it's a great name! I think if possible Iceland is even more beautiful than you could imagine. It's different depending what time of year you come. It's like a moody teen, always changing what it looks like ;)
I love going to new places here and seeing even more beautiful things Happy If you ever get the opportunity to come here, take it! And lots of money, it's so expensive!
Thanks for commenting on my badges, I think I have lost them now Happy
