1  Face Plate AKA Play With Your Food in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Castaways on: December 14, 2010 04:33:06 PM
I have a Silhouette SD paper cutting machine, and they've recently updated the computer program that operates the machine so there's some learnin' going on.  I've seen these plates here on Craftster but they were hand-painted, something that I have failed at :^(   But I figured out how to make it using the Silhouette and new program.  My granddaughter helped me by "scraping" the "sticker" onto the plate and then we proceeded to play with our lunch.

2  Cookies for Santa in Winter Holidays by Castaways on: November 23, 2010 12:49:34 PM
Here's a present I'm making for my grandbabies this year.  The plate is from the Dollar Tree, and the words were cut out of sign vinyl with my Silhouette machine.  I think these are so cute! The idea just "came" to me, then I googled to find just the right words.

I am humbled at your creativity - you have me beat in spades - I thought I was creative when I made this for our motorcycle club "Chapter Director" (CD) a couple years ago - it didn't photograph well - it says "Head CD"



I made one for the Assistant Chapter Director (Ass. CD) but couldn't get him to pose for a photo - don't know why....

4  Ho Ho Muno Stocking for DGD in Winter Holidays by Castaways on: December 10, 2009 07:16:38 PM
The Christmas stocking I made for my granddaughter this year.



got the idea off a blog. The blogger, Cheerios Underfoot, has a pattern, but it's smaller than I wanted. I just used a stocking pattern I've used before, cut out some circles (traced from a ribbon spool) and pinned them onto the felt behind the stocking pattern, then cut out. Used same circle pattern for white of eye, then traced around bottom of salt shaker to get black part of eye. "freehanded" the mouth and teeth. Sewed black to white of eye, then sewed eye to front of stocking, stuffing as I went. Sewed on mouth, then sewed teeth. Then added "hanger" to inside of back piece, then sewed around outside of stocking. All in felt so no seams/turning, etc.  Here's the link

Sorry it took so long to get these posted.  My very favorite one has, somehow, gone missing.  The only difference between the missing spool holder and these that are pictured below is that my fav one is a little bigger and has a thicker base so it holds somewhat larger, heavier spools. 

Here's three of them


Three together, closer view


The size difference


I don't have any thread projects in the work, so I can't show you my skillz   Sad  As you can see, you balance the spool on the post, tipped to the side.  The thread reels off very nicely, and your spool stays in one place.  Don't know how I got along without these.  Hope your woodworking partner can use these photos to make some for you.  My hubby turned these on his wood lathe, but I would image you could make one out of a circle of wood, a dowel, and a nice wooden bead on the end. I found that polishing the end of the post, first with sandpaper and then with waxed paper, made it so smooth that the thread turns very easily.  Let me know what you think.

I received yesterday from antarcticraft but didn't want to open 'cause I haven't sent yet....but, with a little encouragement (didn't take much!), I opened today!  I am such a lucky lucky swap partner! 
First, the whole, colorful opened package:

and the cute little card - I love the bunny!!

antarcticraft knew that I love flamingos, so look what she made!!!

and she knows that I love pink, so she made:

which, I am sure, will be quickly claimed by my granddaughter (for a "grandma's house" toy)
Your skills are fabulous, and the items you chose to make are absolutely perfect!
Thank you so much, I only hope I can at least hold a candle to your talent!!

Uh, you know how 1 year olds never sit still.  Or keep hats on their heads?  Yah, feel my pain....or baby's....

Hooray!  I have hair!!


Wait!  I can't let people see me like this!!

There was quite a wrestling match, but these are the two best shots of her in her wig.  She really doesn't like wearing it.  Oh, well, it was fun while it lasted.
