I like crafts, art, and playing sims 2 & 3 besides my love of fashion. So theirs a chance I might post a how to on clothing to go with my fashion post or I might get bored and decide to show you how to make a craft item. Really depends on my mood.
I have ongoing projects that need doing that take items people don't want anymore and reuses them so anyone who wants to donate unwanted craft items I need please contact me (check out contact page).
Donate? What I mean when I say donate is basically you give to me so I can recycle it into something new. I don't have cash to pay someone for their unwanted items. If I wanted to pay for something I would be getting new craft items, not recycling things people don't want. Some things are negotiable for trade and I will state so in the list.
Desired Objects for donate/trade for my craft projects
Metal Bottle Caps & Soda Pop Tabs & Wine Corks- Drink beer a lot? How bout juice bottles with metal caps? Soda? Wine? I need metal caps, soda tabs, and wine corks for making bottle cap/tab items like earnings and other jewelry items. Am willing to negotiate trade for a finished product if enough bottle caps/tabs/corks are given.
Mens Ties- Have old ties that are just sitting their cause you hate them? Someone gift you with a hideous tie? Or did you have an ex that you kicked to the curb and your left with nothing but a drawer of his old ties and socks? I need ties for crafts such as a tie skirt, tie fabric strap for a item of clothing or accessory, maybe even using the fabric to make hair accessory. Willing to negotiate trade if necessary although would rather just take them off your hands if their unwanted.
Junk Jewelry- Do you have a piece of jewelry that's fake that you don't care about anymore? need more room in your jewelry box? I will take it off your hands and refit it as a new piece. I can't be buying things off of people so this is more a give away to me and feel good in knowing its going to be recycled into a piece someone will use especially since junk jewelry is somewhat of a mixed surprise bag. Items that have chain links, interesting broaches or pendants, or beads are preferred.
Current projects-Since my jeans died I'm going to use the scraps from it to make some stuff so its two projects basically.
Skirt project I want to try-
Apron I think I can make myself by combining

With a halter top style with possable pockets somewhere (hidden or showing off the pockets from the old jeans, haven't decided. depends on if I use the jean pocket part for the jean skirt or not).
