1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / The Cat in the Hat Painted Toddler Shoes on: December 03, 2014 12:06:16 PM
Hi there!!  I'm in a christmas exchange with my mommy group on facebook, and I just had to make my partner's son something.  He loves The Cat in the Hat, so in comes in the shoes!  These were plain black canvas shoes when I started.  Using Tulip fabric paint, in lots of layers, I got these.  I also personalized it a little more by adding his name to one side of the shoe.  I'm really happy with how they turned out!  Super excited for him to get them!

Thanks for looking!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Owl Ornaments on: December 01, 2014 11:45:56 AM
Hi there!  For my partners in the Harry Potter Holiday Swap, I made each a little owl ornament for their trees.  My mom saw them, and said that we also had to have a set for our own tree!  These little guys are made out of FIMO clay and then painted with acrylic paint and coated in Mod Podge to protect the painting.  They have an eyehole glued into the top with fun ribbon that I had on hand to hang them with.  I'm so happy with how they turned out!  The three on the left went to my partners while the three on the right are happily sitting on my rustic nature themed tree.  ^_^  One day, they will go on a all Harry Potter themed tree, but I'm in need of many more HP ornaments before that will happen!

Thanks for looking!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Luna Cork Ornaments on: December 01, 2014 11:39:55 AM
Hi there!  One of my partner's in the HP Holiday swap loves Luna.  So, in honor of her, I made these ornaments.  I happened to have everything to make them on hand, which was super awesome!  I bought the corks for another projects forever ago, but never ended up using them.  They finally found their purpose.  The corks have Luna quotes from the 5th book pasted on with mod podge, which I thought would be a unique touch to the cork ornaments.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / HP Jar Lid Cross Stitch Ornaments on: December 01, 2014 11:23:41 AM
Hi everyone!  I really wanted to make some cross stitch ornaments for my partners in the HP Holiday swap.  So I started in making my little guys, Ron and Dumbledore.  I originally didn't know how I was going to frame the little cross stitches when I was done, but then I remembered seeing some canning jar lids and rings as frames and ornaments online somewhere.  I loved the idea!  So, here we are!  I found the most rusted of the rings in my canning stash (since you really aren't suppose to use the rusted one for canning and because I love the antiqued look).  I added some Christmas trim around the outside of the ring, and some string to make it an ornament.  I'm definitely going to be making more canning lid ornaments in the future!

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Gnome Sweet Gnome on: November 05, 2014 10:07:13 AM
Yay!  A completed cross stitch!  They seem to me my nemisis lately!  I've been working on one for my husband since near the beginning of the year and its still not done.  Lately it's been eluding me further by completely hiding itself somewhere in the house.  But, anyways, I digress.  I made this little guy for the Enchanted Forest swap for my partner Silentblair (who is total awesomesauce, btw).  Anywho, here it is, in all its completed glory:

Of course, I cannot take credit for the design, just the blood, sweat, and tears that went into the stitching.  The totally adorable pattern came from etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/182360575/gnome-sweet-gnome-cross-stitch-pattern?ref=shop_home_active_15
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Thumbprint Tree for Guestbook on: November 05, 2014 09:56:47 AM
My best friend's sister contacted me and asked if I would draw her a tree for their guestbook for people to stamp their thumbprints onto.  Its all the rage right now.  ^_^  I'm not the greatest at drawing, but I think I managed pretty well!  It was fun to make, too!  I started in pencil for the rough outlines and then went over it it all in a permanent pen.  Its all on a thick artist board.

Here is the completed project, with the thumbprints and framed:

And before the thumbprints:

And a couple WIP shots:

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Briella's St. Patrick's Day Outfit on: November 05, 2014 09:36:55 AM
I made this little outfit for my daughter for St. Patrick's day (yes, it was forever ago, I know.  ^_^).

I started with a white onsie and stitched on 4 hearts in different green patterned fabrics to make shamrocks and then embroidered on the stems.  It was really easy to do!  Though, I think adding interfacing to the back of each next time would make it much easier!

The leggings were adult knee high socks with the feet cut off and then zigzagged sewn to make it ruffly looking.  I love making those leggings for her, she has a ton!

For the flower on the headband, I started with a circular piece of felt and then went round and round with a ruffled ribbon, hot gluing it in place at each little turn, in a circle and added a button and a jewel in the middle.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Weather Peg People on: November 05, 2014 09:21:57 AM
Wow, I've totally sucked at posting my projects this year!  Here's one that I did earlier this year for the OWS 100 (yeah, it was that long ago!  lol!)  I made weather peg people for Breegy.

These little guys were painted with acyrlic paints and then sprayed with a couple layers of clear coat.  Kinda like the natural wood look after they were all done.  Their crowns are made from wool felt and glued on.  I think I will need to make a set of weather peg people for my own daughter someday!

Thanks for looking!
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Baby Ewok Costume on: November 05, 2014 07:32:43 AM
We decided to go Star Wars this year for Halloween.  Hubby and I were Jedi's and our 13 month old girl was an Ewok.  I bought the bear costume at a local consignment store for like $5 and then made the headpiece and spear to go with.  The spear is a stick with a felt arrowhead and leather cording on the end.  The headpiece was essentially a long rectangle with the edges sewn over, ear and head holes cut and zigzagged sewn, and then some embroidery here and there.  It was all super easy and quick to make.

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
10  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Hair Clips on: November 05, 2014 07:23:43 AM
I made this set of hair clips for my daughter.  The little figures were originally those cheapo halloween rings.  I just snipped the ring part off and glued them onto the ribbon covered clips.  Super easy and super cute!

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
