141  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pressed Penny Zipper Pulls on: August 12, 2013 10:14:09 AM
I am taking my kids to Disneyland for the first time in September.  It's a surprise trip and I am having too much fun doing all kinds of planning and hiding Disney stuff for them.  I had seem some really cute ideas for pressed pennies on Pinterest and so I ordered up two Disney pennies from Ebay and made them into zipper pulls for the kids Disney backpacks.  In the Disney Swap I also received an awesome Disney World pressed penny from phoenixfiredesigns and made myself a zipper pull too! Underneath the pennies are the pressed penny books I got them to store all the ones we make in Disneyland.

142  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Altered Tombstones on: August 08, 2013 09:11:06 AM
I made these four tombstones using blank bases and some supplies from Retro Cafe Art Gallery.  I used paint, paper, feathers, charms, etc that I ordered from them or had in stash at home.  As always I had a great time coming up with ideas and altering them.

143  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tie Dyed Socks on: July 23, 2013 09:27:52 AM
Someone received a pair of amazing tie dyed socks in the Make A Friend  swap and I just had to have a pair.  I have never tie dyed anything before and thought now was a good time to start!  I also figured this would be a great project to do with my kids.  I bought a little tie dye kit that came with three bottles with the dye in them and all you had to do was add water.  I didn't realize how messy this project would be and ended up with blue hands for a few days after  Tongue  But at least our socks turned out great!

I am not sure why the tops of the socks dyed so much better than the bottom but that's okay cause you don't see the bottom when you wear shoes anyway!
144  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Family Galaxy Shirts on: July 23, 2013 09:19:57 AM
I am sure everyone has seen galaxy goodies before.  There are tutorials and photos all ove the web and on Pinterest.  I never really gave them much thought intil My BFF went to Vegas and she made one.  Now she is not crafty at all and I figured if she could do it then so could I.  I also thought it would be fun for my kids to make their own too.  So we grabbed bleach, a spray bottle, and fabric paint and went to work.  The first thing you want to do is spray your shirts with bleach.  I used a water bottle with 1/2 bleach and 1/2 water.    after spraying let them dry out a bit then wash/ rinse and dry.  After they dried out we started with some watered down purple fabric paint, a foam brush, and added some color.  Then we used watered down blue then a bit of yellow for accents.  

Here is my daughters shirt

my sons

and mine

 I love that there is no right or wrong way to do this and how each is unique.

Some things to think about:

If you do not have a wist or pinterest, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

*If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods you should make this the package that is opened on day 1!

*I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

146  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Hanging Shrine on: June 24, 2013 01:15:34 PM
This was an extra shrine that I made for my partner MaxParadise in the shrine swap.  One of her listed themes was love/romance.  I had this hanging shrine kit from Retro Cafe Art Gallery that I was dying to use so I ordered a few more supplies and here is what I came up with. 

147  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Dia De Los Muertos Shrines on: June 24, 2013 01:13:08 PM
I made these shrines for MaxParadise in the Shrine Swap. I chose her theme of Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead.  I used shrine kits and supplies from Alpha Stamps and Retro Cafe' Art Gallery along with some things pulled from my stash.

Here is the front and back of the main shrine.  If you look closely at the front you can see the brass pistol and mini bottles that I added.

Here are the two mini shrines I made to go along with it. 

148  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Supply Swap?? on: June 10, 2013 12:20:26 PM
Would anyone have any interest in a supply swap?  I was thinking the guidelines would be one small crafted item and then 4-5 new/gently used supplies off your partners wishlist? 
149  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / DIY Peanut Butter on: June 05, 2013 08:55:27 AM
I had no idea how easy it is to make your own peanut butter at home!  We go through A LOT of it at my house and I'm sure will be going through quite a bit more since it's summer time and the kids are going to be eating at home everyday.  I had been trying to only buy natural PB at the store but it's rather expensive and still has lot's of sugar in it.  So I saw somewhere on the web how to make your own at home.  You do need a food processor which I just happened to get for Christmas this year!  Dump in your peanuts.  I used a mix of unsalted and low salt and added just a bit of sugar and turn that sucker on.  At first it looks like it's just chopping the nuts up like this

But keep going and I promise it will all come together! 

I am thinking I should have blended it a bit longer since it was still a bit "gritty" but hey, now I know for next time!
