You did a great job! Your cake was so beautiful I bet it HURT to eat it! I would never have guessed that it was your first fondant cake!! And, homemade marshmallow fondant tastes so good! The Wilton stuff out of the box tastes like plastic YUK! Usually I just peel it off & eat the cake underneath.

Amazing! I love your choice of fabric, and I vote spray paint yellow! You have inspired me to revamp my own swing!

My favorite is definately the black & white skirt with the black silky bows! Love it! I even have polkadot shoes that would match the skirt (or your dress for that matter!)

I really love this, especially the collar! The material is a bit too busy for my taste, but it might work for you! I like the diluted bleach idea to tone it down a bit. Good job!
26  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / woven baby blanket! First big project! on: August 22, 2008 08:13:55 PM
This is my VERY FIRST woven blanket!! What does everyone think? And please I would love input from those more experienced than myself!!

I've made hats before using the knifty knitter hat loom set, but recently I bought the knifty knitter long loom set! My brother and sis in law are having a baby boy. They'll be giving birth in the Phillippines and leaving in a month or so, so I had to get this done FAST!! It took me several days of working on it.

My mother in law gave me a huge BIN of yarn  Shocked imagine the possibilities!! So there was a lot to choose from. Finally I decided on cream, light brown, dark brown and light blue. I used the green long loom, looping around the pegs and flipping over. Once I was done with the blanket I hand tied the fringe, wove a square for the hood, folding and sewing in two corners to make it a hood. Out came my crochet hook, because my blanket was curling in and I didn't like the ragged edges. So I tripple crocheted around the whole blanket a couple times and also around the hood.

The whole idea with the blanket was that they could put the hood over the baby's head, and then swaddle him with the sides of the blanket.

29  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Hula Party Decorating PIC HEAVY!!!! on: June 27, 2008 08:34:24 AM
My friends and I threw a birthday hula party. We used my friends EMPTY apartment and brought all kinds of decorations to re-do it specially for the party. IF YOUR INTERESTED IN THE FOOD - see the food section for my separate post!!

Here is a corner of the main room. NOTICE the homemade beach!! We put sand on a tarp, and seashells, we put a fishing net on the wall with little creatures and starfish, and christmas lights. Notice the "bonfire" in the middle of the room. Colored tissue paper, lights inside and a fan made it look more realistic in the dark. Pic doesn't do it justice.

And a cozy sitting nook on the other side of the room, pillows for people to sit on. They also brought their own beach towels.

The whole room



The gifts, there were 3 gals having a birthday

My friend brooke is so crafty with scrapbooking. She made this for the wall

Our drink table - we made smoothies and virgin dacquiris and pina coladas

Our food table - hawaiian haystacks, fruit flower arrangement, kabobs, and hawaiian pineapple/coconut cake

Entryway table with party favors:

On one wall and into the kitchen:

OOPS this one is upside down, don't know how to fix it. But it's one of the windows.

LAST ONE I promise! ANother pic of the food, it was so yummie! Don't forget to check out the directions in the food section!




30  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Hula Party - Fun & beautiful food!! on: June 27, 2008 08:12:30 AM
My friends threw a hula birthday party. I made the fruit flowers (easier than it lookds) and other friends brought the hawaiian haystacks & kabobs. Here are the pics and instructions!  PS: All the decorating part of the party I posted in a separate post under home decorating. We decorated an empty apartment complete with a homemade beach, so check that out too!!!    http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253999.0;topicseen

The food table: Menu consisted of Hawaiian haystacks, rolls, bbq kabobs, hawaiian coconut/pineapple cake, and fruit flower arrangement.


Hawaiian haystacks:
White Rice, a chicken gravy made with chicken, condensed milk, crm of chicken soup, and white sauce, and toppings such as almonds, green onion, celery, pineapple, coconut, oriental crunchy noodles, shredded cheese, peas, etc...

Here is the fruit flower arrangement:

You will need a head of lettuce, honeydew, watermelon, cantelope, strawberries, kiwi fruit, large grapes, and one ripe pineapple. For supplies you need a large bowl, kabob sticks, a knife, a melon baller, and a flower shaped cookie cutter. Use a melon baller to ball up honeydew, watermelon, and cantelope. Slice the tops off strawberries, Peel & thickly slice kiwi fruit. Take your pineapple, turn it on it's side, and slice in 1/4" slices. Then use your cookie cutter to cut out pineapple flowers. Taking your sticks, put on 1/2 cantelope ball, a flower, and 6 grapes for the flowers. When your flowers are made, use the rest of the fruit on the kabobs however you would like (alternate colors though) Put your head of lettuce (with the bottom sliced off, flat bottom down) in the bowl & stick your kabobs all over it evenly. Ta Da!


These kabobs were barbecued. Remember to soak your skewers for several hours beforehand. Slice and marinate your chicken and/or shrimp. (my friend used storebought marinade) She used black olives, pineapple, cherry tomatoes, chicken, shrimp, baby onions, and cut green and red pepper into star shapes.

Don't have a picture of the cake, but my friend said she used a regular white cake mix with pineapple and coconut added. It was a layer cake with sweet buttercream frosting and fresh fruit designed on top. the pineapple made the cake SOOOO moist, it was yummy@!!!
