11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Treasure Hunt Bag on: August 08, 2008 09:16:08 PM
All the credit for this goes to lil_abi's "I Spy Bag" I saw on Craftster a few days ago.  I can't figure out how to link to another post or I would b/c this is a total copy.  I just posted mine because I'm tickled with how well it turned out.  I can't wait for my 4 yr old DD to play with it tomorrow!


I just love this fabric!  It has been in my stash since I stole it from my mom's stash about 5 years ago.  She has had it since the late 70's.  I begged for her to make me a dress from it when I was little, but she never would.


This is the contents tag.  I don't have any picture ink, so I haven't made the photo tag yet.

There are also 6 "secret" items that aren't on the tag.  (Really, I just forgot about them until after the picture was taken, but no need to admit a mistake when it can be part of the fun!)
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Half Circle Hand Bags on: August 08, 2008 08:56:48 PM
I give credit for the shape to Martha Stewart, but I didn't follow her "no-sew" instructions.  I loved it so much, I made two in one day & one is reversible!



This is the reversible one.  I really can't decide which side I like better.



There is a layer of Heat'N'Bond in between the layers, so it has a lot of body & holds it's shape well.

I'm pretty pleased, but any ideas or tips are welcome.  Thanks for looking!
13  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / First Attempt at REAL (not SILLY) Sushi on: July 27, 2008 11:47:15 AM
Last night I posted my dessert (Silly Sushi) for today's meal, so here is the actual meal.  This is my first attempt at making sushi & I am so proud of how it turned out.  It was a lot of fun & everyone enjoyed it - well, all the adults enjoyed it, I think the kids all just ate a piece so that they could have the dessert.





14  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Silly Sushi on: July 26, 2008 09:28:11 PM
I know, I know...  I'm sure it's been done before, but I've been obsessed with real sushi lately and last night I dreamed about this "silly sushi".  I don't know if it was the sugar high from eating all the "ugly" ends as I was making them, but I couldn't help but giggle the whole time.  My 4yr-DD kept asking if I was OK.  Enjoy... 

FYI - rice crispy treats, wrapped around sour gummies & covered with a fruit roll-up


just one more bit of silliness - they all have batman tongue tattoes!  I couldn't find plain old fruit rollups anywhere  ;-)
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 16th Birthday Card on: May 17, 2008 09:25:21 AM
Just wanted to share the card I made for my nephew's 16th b-day.  All the "Nephew" cards in the store were too young, so I made something funny & appropriate.  I think it turned out pretty well... 


Comments or helpful hints are always welcome.
16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Funky Flower on: May 01, 2008 06:46:54 PM
Here is mine...  the only reason this plant is still alive to take pictures of is because I just got it for a gift.  ;P

17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / How to Tie Shoes on: April 26, 2008 04:46:57 PM
This is my first post... please be gentle.  Sister loved it, DH thought it was silly - let me know what you think.



My DD starts Kindergarten this fall & needs to learn to tie her shoes (and her phone/address).  I searched the web for a good picture guide, but came up with nothing - so I made my own!  I decided to make placemats with the info that we can switch out & avoid boredom as we learn this stuff.



Here are the step by step pictures I took.  I just shrank them down, printed them on cardstock & covered with contac paper.  I cut slits in it after the front side was covered, slid my ribbons through & let the contac paper on the back hold them in place so she can practice tying.
