1  COOKING / Dessert / Catholic School week cuppycakes on: February 10, 2013 01:50:39 PM
So I volunteer at my kids' school alot. And especially when they have roller skating (I used to do derby) - I stop by every day and help out w/the kids (mostly the K/1 classes). I told them if they were good - and listened to me - I'd give them a handsome treat at the end of skating. So I made 108 (yup - I'm batshitcrazy) of these bad boys for ALL the students/faculty/teachers at their school during Catholic schools week for them. And it took me over 60+ hrs to make them all - but the kids totally deserved it. And that's what matters Cheesy  They were a bit weirded out by eating Jesus & the Virgin Mary - for all of about 2 seconds Cheesy

2  COOKING / Dessert / Thank you for being a friend.... on: February 10, 2013 01:44:32 PM
A friend of mine asked me to do some cupcakes for another friend of hers that was leaving work - and his favorite things were France (and everything related!), Pugs (he has 2 black ones), the gay pride flag (he's very proud to be gay) and Golden Girls. I was super excited to to the Golden Girls - who doesn't love them?? I found some lovely artwork online from Glen Hanson (LOVE his work!!) and used it. And I think they turned out AWESOME! Cheesy Let me know what you think!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Silk Garden twirly skirt! on: September 30, 2012 04:36:49 PM

 Wink  So - I found this lovely pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/31-tiered-skirt- but wasn't sure the XL would fit my, ahem, assets. So I sized up a needle (proly didn't have to - but it hangs lovely this way) and this is what I got!
I also added rows to make it longer (I <3 me some long swingy skirts!) and crocheted a scalloped border w/handspun tussah silk to make it hang better.

On the first tier:

4  COOKING / Dessert / Shut the *&ck up Donnie! cupcakes! on: October 23, 2011 05:24:55 PM

 Wink  So the manflesh's big 40th birthday - I was requested to make a special set of cuppy cakes just for him. Since I know he LOVES The Big Lebowski (see my Walter perler here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=390247.msg4620168#4620168), I decided it would be perfect for it. And they turned out BEYOND AWESOME!!! Let me know what'ya think!

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Crazy Phineas & Ferb cupcakes! on: October 23, 2011 05:16:25 PM

 Wink So my kids were born 11.5 months apart - so I tend to usually celebrate with one big party every year. And it has to be a unisex - boys & girls theme, since I have one of each. This year they chose Phineas & Ferb - which is awesome because I secretly watch them myself Smiley  I've been doing these kind of cupcakes for awhile - but the cupcakes themselves are from a box. Sad, but after all the effort I put into the toppers - I just don't care. I melt candy wafers and pipe out the outline & then fill them in - hope you like these!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / You're outta your element, Donny! on: September 07, 2011 11:11:24 AM
So I was looking for something different to make the manflesh for his birthday - and I stumbled upon his fav movie - The Big Lebowski. I figured - what the hey - I'll make him a set of giant Lebowski perlers for fun. Took a couple of days, and some help from my 5yr old, but I think it turned out awesome! Walter - as Lebowski intended...

7  COOKING / Dessert / Dr. Suess in cupcake form on: September 06, 2010 01:47:56 PM
 Wink So the rug monkeys wanted a Dr. Seuss themed birthday cupcakes for their party at school - who am I to say no? Here are the cupcakes I made for them - the characters from the Dr. Seuss books are made from melted chocolate piped from ziplock bags onto a wax paper then placed on the cupcakes. Most of them even made it to school okay  Roll Eyes  Let me know whatya think!

In the process of creating...

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered calenders for Christmas on: January 11, 2010 04:04:33 PM
So I planned on doing six of these....but time is not my friend. Will post the remaining three when I finish them... Tongue

These were given to family as presents this Christmas. Calender blanks purchased from SeptemberHouse on Etsy.

This one is Da Vinci's Head of a Young Woman. Flesh colored floss - 2 strands on cream/natural cotton.

This one is Dali's Persistence of Memory - I have always loved the melty clocks Smiley This one is 2 strand for most of it but a couple of spots I used all 6 strands. Colored in some parts with colored pencil and ironed it in.

And my absolute fav - I LOVE Van Gogh. LOVE. This is Van Gogh's Bedroom. Two strands of floss on cotton.

Let me know what y'all think  Wink
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Max - the great big hairy beast on: November 10, 2009 07:22:19 PM
 Grin I promised some friends of mine I'd do a small painting of their dog, Max, a giant hairy beast - who is just the sweetest thing. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. The silver was used to give it a bit of depth...and I really liked the awesome effect it ended up having  Kiss

Here's the beast for reference...

and the painting...

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Yellow Submarine perlers...first in my series on: November 10, 2009 07:15:54 PM
 Grin Way too long since I've posted a project - been way too busy! Anyhoo - I decided to do a series of Perler figures of the Beatles Yellow Submarine. Mostly 'cause it's way too awesome not to... and this is the first in the series - Paul. His head is just a bit smaller than my hand. John is the next one in line - you can see a bit of his head here. Thanks! Wink
