1  1 up mushroom cake! marshmallow fondant! in Dessert by Chellum on: June 02, 2014 05:59:16 PM
A few days ago was my husband's 30th birthday, and I decided (last minute) to attempt to make him a special cake.

While he and our buddies were enjoying themselves at an aerial park (I'm 28 weeks prego, no ziplinning for me) I whipped up this baby!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, it was my second time making/working with fondant!!

poor little mushroom being murdered, he only lived a few hours, but brought so much joy to those around him!

and now being gutted... I was surprised how well it held together, I thought it would basically explode!

it took a few hours to get together, but I'm so happy I did it; I had a lot of fun, and it turned out better than expected (yay!!)

2  cherry blossom wall hanging in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Chellum on: January 11, 2014 02:36:32 PM

I made this wall hanging for the baby room, right after she was born (14 months ago!)

I drew a cherry blossom branch on a pizza box, cut it out..

Cut strips from a pair of leotards, and wrapped it around the branches (I work with what I've got)

made a happy little birdie family, to represent mine (I should add another little birdie, seeing as I'm expecting 'another')

cut up a bunch of cardboard flowers, glued on fabric, then stitched the centers, using glow in the dark thread!

IMG_0384 by fumeusefatale, on Flickr

The only part I don't like is how camouflaged the name is, on that leopard print fabric... I planned on adding the glow in the dark thread around the letters....... but it's been a year, and it's still not done! : s

3  Skeleton maternity shirt! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Chellum on: September 25, 2012 04:57:27 PM
I saw this shirt, and fell in love! I had to make my own... so here it is!

this was my first time freezer paper stencilling.... I'm in love with it!!

I copied this girl's stencil, I should have made my own, but I was just so excited to try it out!


It's a little girl, so I'm planning on adding a cute little leopard bow on the skull!

I also got on this bandwagon, and made my little toy poodle, Jonesay, one!

It's small.. but he still fits on it perfectly, in his "dog ball" position!
So much fun to make, I wanna do another for a different room!!

5  Pillbox hat/hair fascinators!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Chellum on: February 18, 2012 07:31:54 PM
I love wearing things in my hair! So I try to make 'hair flair'. For the most part, I just assemble flower clips.. but fascinators and petits chapeaux are my favourites to do up.

The hat, and fascinators are made from paper mache, and then covered with fabric!

My latest baby is a mini, leopard print, pillar box hat

Close up...I put buttons on it! :

I sewed a 'lil velvet heart, and added a banner with my man's name
(in front of Amsterdam! Wink)

6  South Park Style Stop Motion Video in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Chellum on: August 11, 2011 03:35:07 PM
Slightly Mature Content

Back in early 2008, I took the bartending course at Algonquin College.
In Oenology, as a final project we had to team up, find a different alcohol, and have an oral presentation infront of the class.
I, being the funny one, came up with the idea of making a hilarious stop motion commerical for our booze. (French Kiss Liqueur)
I painstainkainly cut out a whole bunch of construction paper, and took hundreds of photos of them placed.

It took me 3 long nights to complete (I leave everything to the last minute)
I made the female characters resemble me and my two group partners (fairly accurately ; )
and the bartender was one of my classmates!

It's very, very amature, but it was the first (and only) time I made a stop motion using paper (It's difficult!)

(Click photo for video)

7  Joe Shuster's Smoking Ladies! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Chellum on: May 25, 2011 04:36:06 PM
Am I ever glad to finally post this! This is my lovely Joe Shuster embroidery (Canadian, yo!)
It took me forever to even decide which drawing of his to stitch up, and of course in the end,
I chose the smoking gals!
I started it in January, and could have completed it so much quicker if I had worked on it daily,
which is how I like it. However, during that time I moved, and it threw everything out of sync!
The couch is six inches long

8  Delftware plate #2 (Dutch kissing couple) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Chellum on: December 26, 2010 02:53:40 PM
I made a second 'delftware plate' for my in-laws!

Daddy's Dutch and he and his wive are huge mickey mouse fans,
so I thought the idea of turning Mickey and Minnie into a
Dutch kissing couple was perfect for them!

7 inch hoop

9  Seeing stars...And tiny, felt birds! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Chellum on: July 25, 2010 02:54:33 PM
The Adorabird is a rare phenomenon that can occur after one suffers from a blunt force trauma!

Close up cuteness!

And in flight!

The little birds are actually only an inch large!

10  "Turning Japanese" in Needlework: Completed Projects by Chellum on: December 12, 2009 06:28:40 PM
Recognize the composition? This was going to be my entry in the needlework challenge, back in February. After starting it, I put it aside to work on my Delft piece. It remained incomplete for the longest of time, but I recently took to it again, and finally finished it!
I compiled it together in Adobe, using various photographs. 

Little geisha goodness and cherry blossom delight:

The non-altered plate:

Tea pot, with scenery from a jewelery box I own:

Cigarette holder! Individually stitched fishnet stockings:

Face. She and I have a love hate relationship:

I think the Japanese twist on the original is pretty cute
