1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: octopus + cupcakes. on: July 08, 2008 08:53:53 AM

thanks for all the kind words everyone!  i was so excited when i got my swap partner and found out she liked octopi.  i will admit that the idea was not completely my own... my friend has an octopus tattoo and the tentacles are holding various food objects (his reasoning?  "i must have been hungry that day") and that totally served as my inspiration.

i was going to make another one for myself, but i have a pretty big octopus tattoo on my arm and decided that it might be a little too much octopus at once for me!

omg did you draw that? its wonderful!

thank you... and no i did not draw it.  my drawing skills are at a level -19 and i generally draw stick figures and not much else.  i found the octopus on google images, but can't for the life of me remember exactly what phrase i searched... maybe octopus drawings or octopus coloring books or something along those lines.  the cupcakes i did manage to draw on my own (i can also handle basic shapes, along with my stick figures)


and thanks to everyone else for the positive comments!  i had such a good time making this.

i made this for the cupcake swap, but i am completely in love with it and had to post it here.  it gave me the chance to combine two of my absolute favorite things.



you can't see from the picture, but it's on a canvas tote bag.

foodgawker is a pretty decent substitute.


but good news from tastespotting:

UPDATE 6.19.08:
In trying to resolve this situation, TasteSpotting.com is in the process of having a new owner. She would like you to know that "we're just marinating a bit longer, but tastespotting will be back shortly..."
