11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mario & Luigi hats for twin boys 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

12  COOKING / Dessert / Mario cake! 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
13  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Engrish Swap? on: January 23, 2010 06:34:22 PM

I'll start off by saying I'm a big fan of "engrish". Who wouldn't love a stenciled engrish t-shirt, some clever "human dumpling" earrings, or a CD wallet for all their "Eric Crapton" albums?  Grin

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, check out www.engrish.com

Anyone in for a silly ol' Engrish swap?
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Polymer clay Christmas earrings on: December 08, 2009 08:35:18 PM
A few of my latest crafty creations! I have far too much fun making cute little things. The pics are a little dark, unfortunately. Sad I think the reindeer are my favourites!

I made some little holly leaves & berries as well, but haven't managed to get a good pic yet. Sad
15  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Lucille Ball in black and white on: November 01, 2009 09:17:43 PM
I've always wanted to do an entire stage production in black and white, especially since seeing Pleasantville. I decided that my Halloween costume would suffice, and suggested that my boyfriend and I should be Lucy & Ricky for Halloween. He couldn't make it up this year though (long distance relationship Sad) so I went solo as Lucy.

By the time these pics were taken, my makeup had begun to wear off a bit, but it's the basic idea. I can't believe I actually dyed my hair black for this! I'm beginning to wonder if it was a mistake, haha. First time ever dying my hair... usually it's a light/medium brown.

My mom and aunt helped me make the dress, I made the earrings and did my hair and makeup. The arm coverings were made from tights (I wanted lighter but this was the only shade gray they had)... and the gloves, belt, purse and shoes (which aren't visible except very slightly in one pic) were thrifted.

(basically only posting that for the visible shoe. Wink)

Sans gloves, at work, with Dexter the Pirate Dog. Hard to work with those gloves on, especially when they're too small for your hands! (This and the next shot were taken when I first dressed up on Friday and used a video tut for the hair, which failed miserably. My hair was way too thick and I had to half-arse it at the last minute by shoving as many combs and bobby pins into it as I could).

Playing the role of the housewife, also sans gloves. Mmmm, apple danish and homemade marshmallows, with a generous helping of chocolate bars and gummy candies! Eat up, kids! (Is it weird that our office is above a dentist? Wink)

And a closeup from when I got home on Saturday night, after a fundraising party where I got hit on by a 60 year old man who had just been humping a Wheaties box, as well as by a guy who told me he thought I looked drunk and easy, which was a feat, considering I'm a virgin who doesn't drink, hahaha. He then proceeded to tell me he was "in pretty good shape" and gave me his business card, what a winner!

*cough* So anyway, hope you enjoyed my little rambles along with the pics. C&C are always appreciated! Smiley

16  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Beatles Yellow Submarine shoes - 9 pics on: September 19, 2009 09:57:44 PM
I made these totally sweet shoes (sorry, had to toot my own horn for a minute Smiley) for my partner, hippiejo76, in the Beatles swap. I fell in love with them and even tried to fit my feet into them (despite being two sizes to small they were just a little too tight....) then realized I knew she would love them and sent them on their way. Smiley I'm glad they found a loving home! Now I just have to make more. Wink

Thanks for looking! Smiley
17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / You've Got the Touch! -Transformers stenciled tee on: July 11, 2009 04:18:30 PM
A friend commissioned this from me, and hokey smokes, at first I wondered what I had gotten myself into... but I was so pleased with the result in the end that it was all worthwhile! She found a shirt with this design online, but rather than buy it for her boyfriend, decided to ask me to recreate it. They must have been out of stock or something.... in any case, I present the most ridiculous stencil I've taken on to date!

It's a mix of fabric painting, freezer paper stenciling, and freehand painting. I'm pleased as punch with it, even though I know nothing about Transformers... just that the line is from the theme song. Wink

The only thing I'm not happy with is the amps ... the blue circles on them were done in fabric paint, and they're a bit wonky. I  mean, hey, I was zonked by the time I put the finishing touches on this thing, but I'm still my worst critic!
18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first freezer paper stencils- Warhol, Dali, Squirtle, NES & more! img heavy! on: May 17, 2009 11:18:26 AM
Sooo I got freezer paper the other day, and totally fell in love! I've been obsessively crafting the past few days and really loving the results.

This was the first shirt I made:

Which was followed by this one...

And that's about where I started going crazy, and made all of these:

(NES undies, just trying out the stencil- didn't want to use up a shirt, haha)

Couple detail shots:

And the happy crafter:

And the happy boyfriend:

And that's been my past 2 days in a nutshell! Comments appreciated muchly. Cheesy
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Snoopy sheets = wrap pants on: April 30, 2009 09:54:06 PM
Thanks a million to this tutorial, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254336.0 I just made the comfiest pair of pants I think I've ever made! After a minor mishap with the sewing, may I present my Snoopy wrap pants. Smiley

I'm so glad I picked up this sheet on half price day at the thrift store- I knew it would come in handy!
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Weird, wacky, and a whole lotta nerdy earrings (7 smallish pics) on: April 21, 2009 07:10:42 AM
So the other day I picked up my polymer clay and wondered why I have so much... I decided it was time to start making things again! It led to a few hours full of nerdiness, but now I've got some awesome new earrings to show off. I love new earrings! Smiley

I'm wearing these little Hitchhiker's Guide dudes today:

My boyfriend suggested he might take me to a Cubs game when I go visit him, so naturally I gotta go in style. Wink Not crazy about how these turned out; they were the first of the night and I hadn't worked with clay in months!

Oldschool geekery

Mmm, lemon cake... only my second attempt at cake... it looked nicer before I cut it up

What I did with the extra lemon slices:

Who didn't love ViewMaster as a kid? Smiley (or as an adult, for that matter...)

These Tetris earrings are so ridiculously huge and klunky, I love 'em! Hard to tell scale from a pic, though, isn't it. I'll have to get an action shot later...

Thanks for looking! Smiley  Suggestions for more nerdy earrings are much appreciated! Wink

Edited to add an "action shot" of the Tetris earrings for scale:

Big n' clunky! Love 'em! Wink
