I’ve been waiting excitedly to get this piece to a finish and get it listed, so finally, here it is. I made something similar to this for myself years ago and couldn’t imagine the boudoir without it now. Not only has it become a great storage piece, but a beautiful work of art as well.  Check it out at the store.

Skull Candle Holders, Rockabilly, Pin-Striped, His and Hers, Matching Set

You’ll never see another set like this. Matching his & hers skull candle holders. Weighing in at over 2 lbs a piece, these upcycled resin and wood candle holders are each uniquely pin-striped.

“Hers” is pink and silver/grey and “his” is fire engine red and silver/grey. While the designs are similar, they are not exact, just as each couple is unique unto themselves, but still joined as one.

Each has two grey stripes around its black wooden base. The bases are felted for non-scratch.

These are lovely as rockabilly / psychobilly / gothic home decor and would also make a lovely wedding or handfasting gift.

Each stands approximately 18″ H.

The “hers” candle base has a slight defect, which is pictured in the close up photo, and is negligible.

Candles NOT included.

Creating a Custom Sketchbook

custom sketchbook
I began a new sketchbook recently, starting by creating a custom fabric cover for it. I found a really great set of visual instructions on  creating fabric book covers here on this awesome guy’s youtube page (The Post Apoc).

The instructions say it better than I can, but if you’re too lazy to watch the video then I’ll say it’s much like wrapping a gift, where you lay your shirt out, cutting it into a rectangle, leaving a few extra inches on each side to fold in.

For my cover, I went a bit of a different route, using a thicker t-shirt than the one in the video (this definitely adds a challenge). I used an old favorite, a Cramps t-shirt that sadly didn’t fit anymore. I loved The Post Apoc’s suggestion to use a ribbon to create a book-marker. This is especially handy for anyone using their covered book as a sketchbook or writing journal. In addition I decided to add a little flair with a piece of scrap leather I had lying around. I used this to cover the spine. Pieces of leather can be found at a craft store like Michael’s or AC Moore or probably a fabric store like JoAnn’s or maybe your local mom and pop shop.

I also included some studs I had in my stash as well (it pays to never throw anything out) these are the very same as the kind you buy for leather jackets and such. If you don’t have a local source I recommend this store, I have history there, Angry, Young and Poor.  The studs were a real mess and a half to get in, but if you’re careful it’s do-able. Use a hammer, a steady hand and some patience. And something to hold your book in place, I used my legs but a vice may have worked too however I didn’t want to risk compromise  to the book in any way.

Mine isn’t perfect by any means. It’s a bit crooked in spaces (because I’m impatient and do things in a rush) and the corners were pretty tough to tuck in and glue in place. That’s what happens when you use a thick, cotton shirt – but I wouldn’t let that deter you. I wound up just making a few slits and cutting the extra material out. Honestly, if you use the first page of your book and the last page of your book to create ‘end papers‘ by gluing them to the inside front cover and inside back cover, you won’t see any corner folding imperfections anyway.

The end papers are a great place to get really creative. I decided to draw on mine – ’cause I’m an artist. But you could decoupage on yours, scrapbook, or write messages. On my back end papers I pasted in some funky fortunes I’ve collected from Chinese cookies over the years.
Have fun and enjoy your own project!
