1  A Christmas story Snow Globe Hat in Winter Holidays by MelCap on: December 26, 2010 05:31:54 PM
Each year my family has a game or a contest. Last year we had a hat contest & I really want to brag about Hubby's hat...

He made a snow globe on his head!!!

He is a big A Christmas Story fan so his theme was easy his execution was quite impressive!!!

He made the leg lamp from a Barbie-- fishnets & all -- no store bought leg here! 
He made the fragile box, and then He got a glass bowl, turned it upside down, and filled it with Styrofoam balls.   He got an air compressor (the kind used for blowing up air mattresses) and snaked that up his shirt & into the hat, to make the "snow" blow around.

He had speakers on the hat, and had audio from the  movie playing...   

Thats a pic of the actual house from the movie (with the leg lamp in the window), and of course the kid licking the pole is featured too
 
He did a marvelous job, and I just wanted to show off his mad skills. He didn't win the contest (b/c you'll never beat a kid  Sad )     but I wanted him to get some craftster love, so he can see what a great job he did  Grin

I included a couple shots of the whole group too, I hope you enjoyed your holidays.

Oh how wonderful, the RAK bug has hit craftster too!!!  - I was recently inspired to do RAK by  www.secretagentl.com    Many people leave inspirational cards, and a craftster homemade card would be even better!!!

  --  My most recent RAK was to leave beautiful bouquets at a Dr's office where they perform Chemotherapy.    I left one on a car in a handicapped spot, one in the restroom, (in the hallway - not in the office)  and one right outside the entrance to the office, I'm happy to say no one caught me in the act.

4  Resin Spoon Christmas Ornaments in Winter Holidays by MelCap on: November 24, 2009 08:11:39 AM
Every year my Mom & I make ornaments for the Family to hand out on Christmas Eve

While perusing Craftster I saw the resin spoon necklace pendants, and decided that would be the framework of our ornaments this year.

We made a few generic ones, and a few customized, one for the NJ Devils fan, and one for a vacuum-aholic (the vacuum w/ the hearts around it), one w/ my cousin's dogs, etc....   We enjoyed making them, now I can't wait to hand them out!
Some are filled w/ seed beads behind the main image - which I think look great up close!  





More pics added:
Seed beeds as balls on the Christmas tree & as background

I have been lurking for so long, finally I have something to post.

Every year we make Christmas ornaments for everyone in the family on Christmas Eve.  This year I was searching Craftster for inspiration, and the resin spoons that people have been wearing as neckaces caught my eye.

So I got some larger tablespoons, and made ornaments out of them  There are plenty more in process - some with pictures of kids / pets  etc... I'll post more as I make them. 

Anyway - here are my first attempts at resin spoon ornaments.  - They came out great I think - some are filled with beads etc..

Following the resin spoons are painted spoons with bent handles.  The Idea is 100% plagiarized... if you google "spoon ornaments" the exact picture comes up - I claim no creativity on them.

Thanks for looking - i hope you like them

10  Mice Cherries - w/ poops & cheese ; ) in Dessert by MelCap on: January 08, 2009 07:39:54 PM
I took the mice cherries to the next level -- added poops (sprinkles) and a sandy "nilla wafer" bottom

Perfect birthday dessert for someone just getting over a mouse infestation!
