21  Re: Bookmark Swap Round 3 Gallery of Bibliophilic Love in The Swap Gallery by fluffypants on: September 05, 2010 10:55:38 AM
I received an adorable Sneetch bookmark from beckashell - here it is inside my first edition copy of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins! Wink

She also included some goodies for future bookmark making, I can't wait to turn the Moomin tag into a bookmark for my Moomin books! Smiley

Apologies for the poor quality photos; my camera is... somewhere, so these were taken in Photo Booth on my comp!

I received these two lovelies from Stellou today! I love coming home to mail. Cheesy

The first is a tatted flower, along with my previous bookmark (ticket stub from Toy Story 3!) in "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey.

The second is an awesome pieced fabric bookmark, tucked into my favourite book - "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Safran Foer... I just started reading it to my boyfriend this weekend. Actually, I think it was one of the first things we did after we officially became boyfriend and girlfriend. After I read him some Dr. Seuss, hehehe. How cute is that? Wink

Thanks stellou, they're awesome! I can't wait to start using real bookmarks again! (I also can't wait to finish up and send!)

I received from SMLoundsbury a few days ago and am just getting around to posting the pics!

First off, some of the extras - there was a bunch of candy too, but that's already in my purse and in my belly! Wink

Two cuuute mustache glasses from my Wists:

A travel mug designed by her kiddos! Smiley

A super bright bag with flowered leis for straps:

And last but not least, a very cute cupcake bag and wallet, as well as (my new favourite) rubber band ball earrings!

Thanks so much Stacey! Cheesy

24  Mario & Luigi hats for twin boys in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by fluffypants on: May 13, 2010 07:08:00 PM
Just had to share these adorable hats I made for mama24boyz' twins in the Mario Bros. swap! (If you check out the swap gallery, she posted some absolutely ADORABLE shots of her boys in the hats. What a couple of cuties!)

Link to the page with pics of the twins: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=345282.50

Had to try one on for myself, since I'm a "M"ary! Wink

I came up with the pattern from googling random things relating to Mario hats until I had enough of an idea of how to construct one to start hacking away at my fleece stash. I can't wait to make more! Cheesy

Your boys are absolutely adorable, mama24boyz, and I'm so glad they loved their goodies! I had a blast making the hats.

This was the best photo of the hats I got before sending them... they look so much better on real heads! Wink

I love seeing all the goodies in this gallery! The clock is fabulous! I love all the t-shirts popping up here, too. Cheesy

I received a parcel of complete awesomeness from gavagai. It's all so perfect! Sorry for the shadowy pics; I was trying to get shots before the sun went down when I got home from work.

First up, everything was tucked inside this cute bag, including the pictured set of notecards.

Next up I pulled out this fantastic Yellow Submarine bag, which I absolutely adore! <3

Just when I thought it couldn't get awesomer, I pulled out something which literally made me "squee"! The sweetest t-shirt with a stencil of my favourite character, Snufkin, from the Moomin books!

And to finish it all off, rolled up in the shirt was this great set of Toy Story aliens earrings and a necklace. So awesome. I wore them to work already. Cheesy

Thanks so much gavagai, I am super giddy about my goodies! Smiley

My partner, MissCrafty29, received today! Since she is on dial up, I offered to post pictures for her, so here are the goodies she received from me. Smiley Sorry for the heap of pictures, I've got to remember to take "group pics" next time!

First up, some small odds and ends, which were all in the pockets of the bag I made for her...

Three different kinds of my homemade Lip Blam!

A cucumber avacado soap (with the leaf detail) a citrus glycerin soap (with a little fish inside) and two racecar soaps for her hubby! I think they were citrus as well, I can't remember offhand.... I also included some Nascar magnets for her hubby, which didn't make it into a picture.

A little polymer clay mushroom charm

Pinback buttons! I love buttons. I also love owning a button machine. Wink

Scrabble tile pendants: tie dye, the Monkees, a LIFE magazine photo from a war protest, and Rocky Horror.

A headband/dread wrap - I've never made anything with elastic before so I hope it's sturdy!

A resin keychain

A tea wallet Smiley

The bag everything was in:

And my absolute favourite, a dress for her daughter!



I made it a bit large to be safe, so hopefully it will fit her at some point. Wink I want to make one that fits me now, hahaha. I think I have enough fabric left over!

I had a blast crafting for you, MissCrafty29! Cheesy

29  Mario cake! in Dessert by fluffypants on: April 03, 2010 07:17:14 PM
I made this cake in the fall for a coworker's nephew's 5th birthday party. He had a Mario-esque party out at a farm in town. It was great for the kids - the farm had this "Pumpkinfest" going on, so they had all sorts of fun activities... followed up with apple cider, hot chocolate, chili, hot dogs, soup and cake! Yum!

Without further ado, I present the cake! It's not nearly "clean" as I hoped it would be, since I ended up in a bit of a rush at the end. The figures are made with colour flow, the whole cake is covered in marshmallow fondant. The bottom two tiers are an amazing "perfectly chocolate" cake recipe from Hershey's (SO good) and the hat is made of Rice Krispies treats. Smiley

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Would you like something along the lines of a funky patchwork skirt or quilt? Hypothetically speaking...

More than likely, yes... I do adore the one in the link that was posted a few pages back.

What is your favorite color combo to wear? Not just in general but bascially what colors do you wear most often or look best on you?

I'm always told red looks really nice on me; both deep red and bright red. I have a bright red pea coat that I usually wear with a green scarf when I'm wearing black or gray pants. I also layer a really bold blouse with a good black tank and a necklace quite often. Hope that helps at least a little, if this craftster is my partner Wink

What is the strangest dream you've had recently???
Bear with me, this could get long. This was shortly after the earthquake in Haiti, so I think part of this was based on all the news stories about the children being adopted.

Here goes the dream:
I was pregnant, and somehow got myself to the hospital since I was about to have my baby. They got me into a bed, and then walked in and handed me a small dark skinned little girl, and that was that. So, I get out of bed and I'm taking this little baby around town, walking through this super seedy looking area of town, and it looks to be around midnight. This girl is adorable. She's got a little orange and white toque on, and a little snowsuit. All of a sudden, she starts talking. She looks at me and says "what do you want to do?" So I tell her "I don't know, but there's a theatre up the street." So we keep chatting as I carry her to the theatre.
We get inside, and there are two guys behind the counter, and my friends Spoons, Nathan and Danielle are there. The lobby of the theatre is set up like a joke shop, and one of the guys behind the counter is wearing a propeller beanie, the other is wearing rainbow suspenders and nerd glasses. The only movie playing is The Hunt for Red October.
Spoons is digging through a bin of whoopee cushions and Groucho glasses and the like, while Nathan wanders aimlessly. Danielle crawls into her shoulder bag and goes for a nap on the counter. I tell my baby that I don't think she'd like The Hunt for Red October, so we leave.
Suddenly, it's daytime and I'm in a thrift shop. I have this little baby carrying bag with me which clips to a clothes hanger, so I clip the baby onto a hanger and hang her up on the rack while I look at dresses and show them to her to get her opinion. It suddenly occurs to me that I need to get back to work, so I rush to the office, and my coworkers are ogling my baby and asking me where I'm going to put her while I'm at work for the afternoon....
...and that's it.

I also totally just remembered some more favourite quotes- ...these are all Emo Philips, hahaha. I love his quirky humour.

"Probably the toughest time in anyone's life.... is when they have to murder a loved one because they're the devil. Other than that, though, it's been a good day."

"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord, in his infinite wisdom, doesn't work that way, so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me."

"Well, my brother says hello. So, hooray for speech therapy!"

"You know what I hate? Indian givers... no, I take that back."

I'm missing my Buster a lot today, it's so weird not having him at my door when I wake up. I keep expecting to see him, or hear him meowing for breakfast. I'm really glad that when my parents went out of town on Monday, I was lying on the couch in the sunroom and Buster hopped up on me... and I happened to have my camera and took a bunch of pictures of us together. It had been a long time since I'd taken pictures of the two of us, and I'm really glad I got the chance - I don't think it was a coincidence at all. For some reason this one makes me smile... there are nicer ones, but I like how silly and casual this one looks.
