Wild Zero Pedalpalooza Ride

Pin It Now!

Hello, crafters.
On Saturday evening, myself and some friends hosted a bike-in movie/Pedalpalooza ride.  For those of you who have never heard of Pedalpalooza, it's a nonstop 3 week bicycle festival in Portland, Oregon.  By nonstop I mean there are at least 10 rides to choose from every day for 3 weeks.  It's a lot of fun.

The movie we showed was Wild Zero, which is Guitar Wolf's action packed zombie/alien killing spectacular.  If you have never heard of either Guitar Wolf or Wild Zero, just Google it.
In the movie, Wild Zero, there are a lot of flames ejecting from tail pipes of motorcycles and cars and microphones; yes, the movie is that cool.  For the ride we encouraged people to dress like Guitar Wolf, which meant a lot of leather, shades, just a general Rock N' Roll look.

To get into the spirit of things I decided to add some tail pipes and flames to my already very decorated bicycle.  I think it looks pretty tough.  The flames are made out of Mylar and the tail pipes are some items that I picked up at SCRAP.  I have no idea what they are.
Rock N' Roll!!!

My Dear Friend Liz

Pin It Now!

My dear friend Liz moved to Boston with her husband and daughter almost a year ago now.  We have been doing the old school pen pal thing, which is pretty fun.  A few months ago a made her a small mailable gift in honor of her birthday.

I have always wanted to make a matchbox shrine and I had saved these interesting matchboxes I got when I was in China, which was 5 years ago.  I really like them because they are longer than normal matchboxes.  So here is what I came up with.  I added a super strong magnet to the back so that it could be placed on a refrigerator.

Art Car Part Deux

Pin It Now!

Sorry for the snooze on my blog; however, I've been doing anything but snoozing lately, which is why there is such a gap between posts:)
I have a lot to share, but I will just start with the addition to the art car that I am going to continue to work on and create all summer.
I wanted to make a shrine like or mandalaish pattern on the hood.  One sunny day a month or so ago I ran to the car wash, came home and quickly added some sparkly vinyl and this wooden star pattern as the centerpiece that I had found in a free box about a year or so ago.
I had some vinyl leftover that I had cut out for the mandala so I added it like a border to the top.
This latest addition will hopefully keep things rolling and inspire me to work on it more this summer.  Don't worry, I have plenty of ideas and I will keep you posted with my progress.
