  1. You poor darlings. I despise the dentist. And the orthodontist. After getting 8 teeth pulled (3 of which were permanents!), they decided to put on braces and then after 3 years of that torture, I moved and found out that my old orthodontist had totally screwed up my teeth. So it was another three years. I am also tongue-tied, which means I can't even stick my tongue out of my mouth (it's joined too far up on the bottom). So every time I go to the dentist, it's "No, really. Stick out your tongue." "mffmfmmff!" "Um, seriously. Stick it out!" "I CAN'T!" "Oh. Yeah, you can't.

    First Dollhouse

    FINALLY! This is my very first dollhouse, airbrushed by the great Henry Gerson. (Funny story: My dad TRIED to build me one out of a kit but since he is neither a) patient or b) a detail person, we just couldn't get it together! Hence this frame dollhouse that he bought plain and had airbrushed by his friend) Enjoy! More pictures will be taken as I re-decorate.

    Orchid Bash

    I wanted to make a house for someone who attended/taught at Hogwarts, from the Harry Potter series. This is my first attempt at dollhouse building and it's been great fun! Comments appreciated.
  5. This is my friend K, showing the almost complete "Peacock Strut" gown. We're going to have to do some final sewing once we get to the Runway...but doesn't she look gorgeous??
  6. Here's me! Not the best pic, but hey...the back of the dress is pretty. This is the top of the "Magnolia" dress, comprised of trashbags, ribbon, an old bra (since I had an old one that I didn't use, I sewed the ribbon straps to it to go on the inside of the top of the dress) and lots of tape and thread. And a Magnolia, which symbolizes my friends' R & G's Magnolia Designs, their new Floral Company.
  7. This is the skirt of my "Magnolia" dress that I will be modeling - it has two layers of trash bags, tissue paper, and I added 3 pick-ups - 2 in the front, 1 in the back.
  8. This is the "peacock strut" gown that we constructed using trashbags (inside), tissue paper, ribbon, and peacock feathers. We taped and sewed it together and it only took us a week!!
  9. This is my friend R, who helped with the design, provided most of the materials, and helped me construct the gown. She and my friend G have started their own floral company so I thought this would be some publicity for them.

    Runaway Runway 2009

    This is the fashion show I entered with 3 of my friends. I drew up the final designs for the outfits, constructed them w/ a friend, and modeled the "Magnolia" dress. My friend K is wearing the "Peacock Strut" Gown. I made the gowns out of tissue paper, trashbags, ribbon, feathers, old buttons, yarn, and lots of thread and tape. Enjoy!

    Kate's Creations

    These miniatures were made by me for a dear friend of mine for her Christmas present. We had a little photo shoot and here are some of the things I made. I used sculpey clay and fabric, mostly.

    I'm going to use corrugated cardboard painted silver for a "tin" roof. The whole house is going to be "stoned" w/ white grout. What do you think?
