I received my most most favourite of the cross stitches today, the green tentacled monster came over from Australia (with an adorable gift tag as well) to tentacle around in our house a bit!
Thank you, bec99! It's so cute!

Ditto what Ruby said!!! I love it & the packaging was so cute, but I couldn't resist tearing right into it rather than taking a photo first! Thank you bec99! It's on the fridge now....but up high so the kids don't muck it up!  Cheesy


And last but not least, the wonderful monster painting by kwality570... as held by my disgruntled 4 year old... she has that expression because I told her it was going in her brother's room. Sadly her brother has a bit of a cold & hasn't been up for a mommy photo session. I'm hoping he feels better soon! THank you so much kwality570 for your great work! It will have a place of honor in my boy's room!

I had to switch gears & since Sunday evening, have been crafting with a different material now that I had to admit defeat with the previous project. I suppose I can share with y'all what I attempted to do. One day I hope to finish it.


Tell me I was crazy to think I could finish this in time...  Undecided

I feel like I'm going to be such a gallery hog here uploading so many at once! I am over the moon thrilled with everything & so is my babygirl who has run off to her room with half of the items!

First, here is a wonderful upcycled t shirt scarf from badpuppy. Thank you so much badpuppy! This is perfect for this in between season where some days are just too chilly to go without a scarf, but are still too warm for a woolen one. I love it!


Next item is one of craftaddiction's handmade headbands with the flower! It's gorgeous! I love the color much more in person! It can fit me and my girl! Thank you so much!


Here we have one of imafundork's highly coveted cute critter embroideries! Thank you so much! I'm so tickled to have received the kitten! It was a top pick! Not sure if I'm going to keep it in my craft room or give in to my girl & add it to a little hoopla wall over her bed. So far, we've got 3 hoops & yours would fit right in! Thank you imafundork!


Next we have a pair of fun clippies from avesthel. I won't be getting these back from my girl. Once I put them in her hair, she did not want me to take them out. I showed her how they work & now she can put them on herself! They're so cute in her hair! Thank you avesthel!


Here is one of Dawl's glass pendants she customized with a photo of my kiddos! I adore it so much Dawl! Thank you!


Here we have an amazing newsboy hat by Thimbles71! It also can fit be and my daughter, but I can't wait to try it on my boy when he gets home from school! I think he'll be quite the handsome devil in it! Thank you Thimbles71!


And finally we have a necklace made by Gatorwrangler! The colors in the train photo absolutely pop! It's even better than I'd imagined! Thank you Gatorwrangler!

44  OMG!!! My Hacks are on IKEA Hackers! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: March 29, 2011 04:08:56 PM
I'm running around the room with my pinwheels all aspin because I submitted these to the Ikea Hackers blog & didn't really think they'd really publish them....or at least I convinced myself they wouldn't so I wouldn't get my feelings hurt... but they did!

WHeeeeee!

Here's a corner of my craft room:


I painted the table with left over interior paint from my babygirl's room:

...then glittered it & sealed it with resin (note that any resin meant for sealing bar tops will do)

The end result...one very sparkly shiny...very pink work table!


I slipcovered my stool to make it look like a sushi roll too! See the final result in the first photo.  Grin


I've got perma-grin right now! My cheeks hurt so bad!  Grin

Here's the link! http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/03/pink-glittered-tovik-table-and-vitamin.html
Thanks for the go ahead Pixieval! Come craft in my corner anytime!

Behold the glory of sparkle by kitschbitch! I wanted this necklace sooo bad!  Smiley

Here I have it hanging up with my Nana's pearls.


It's so sparkly & will go with everything I wear!



Thank you kitschbitch! I adore this & will treasure it!

46  Whoopie Pie Recipe ...You'll Thank Me Later! in Dessert by I Sew Cute on: March 23, 2011 07:23:14 AM
I just whipped up a batch of these yesterday as we were lacking something sinfully sweet in our cupboard & I didn't have the ingredients to make the cupcakes I've been longing to do on hand. (note to self: pick up some Baileys Irish Creme)

These are traditional New England Whoopie Pies!



The outer part is like a cross between chocolate cake & brownies.
The filling is a cross between frosting & oreo cookie filling.
Any way you slice them, they're wicked yummy!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

INGREDIENTS:
I FORGOT!!! 2.5 Cups of FLOUR (sorry!)
1/2 C. SHORTENING
2 EGGS
1 C. SUGAR
5 TBSP. COCCOA
1 C. MILK
1 TSP. SODA
1 TSP. BAKING POWDER
PINCH OF SALT
1 TSP. VANILLA

Cream together everything until it's well mixed & fluffy looking. Drop by spoonfuls onto a well greased cookie sheet. Spread batter out until it's app. 3" across & 2/3" thick. Batter doesn't spread much during the baking process, so the final size will be what you create on the pan before baking.

Bake app. 10 minutes. You'll know when they're done when the surface no longer appears shiny & a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow to cool.

FILLING:
1/2 CUP SHORTENING
1 TBSP. MILK
1 CUP OF CONFECTIONER (POWDERED) SUGAR
1 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
1 TSP. VANILLA
.5 TSP. ALMOND EXTRACT

Cream together filling ingredients & then spread filling onto half of your pies & finally add another pie on top to make a 'sandwich'.

*For a lower calorie version of this recipe you may substitute all sugar with 'Splenda' or equivalent sugar substitute...but seriously with this much shortening, you may as well just indulge!

Enjoy! Please share with friends...and if you make a batch, please share your results on craftster!  Smiley

Lots of love from Sugaree!

I'm loving the thought & care that she put into this package! My fave. part of the movie was when Amelie returns the childhood box to it's owner & thus, I give you photos!
A note to read first!  Smiley


Then inside this distressed & aged paper letter...

It came packaged in it's own separate packaging complete with cancelled stamps on the outside! I love details like that!


Contents of the box:



I had so much fun photographing my babygirl with the paper dolls & hearts!  Cheesy



...she gave me the hairy eyeball because I told her not to rip them:

Cute pendant with map & beads!


magnets:


Adorable button ring & pin:


Temporary tattoo fun!


Handmade fabric flower heart... so cute...I'm going to put it on a hair clippie!


Awesome knit bracelets:


Lacey headband fits both me & my girl!


Thank you sugaree for all the amazing things in the box & the gnomey! I'm wearing the bracelets now & will also be using the bottlecaps to make some photo magnets with resin pretty soon! Your package was very thoughtful & I appreciate all of it!

Cheers!

48  Etsy shop is stealing from me & maybe you too!!! in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by I Sew Cute on: March 13, 2011 09:46:03 AM
This etsy shop "fortheloveofdre" has lifted photos of my items & has undercut my prices... how low is that?

Check out the 'cropped' image of my original custom sprinkles initial ring she's using here (in green)...compared with my original rings (in pink)


And here, she's cropped my photo of my red glitter heart adjustable ring! (mine is highlighted in pink & hers...the copy is in green)


"Latifah Bates" obviously has no scruples or conscience whatsoever to be doing this to me...and the thing is, it's not just me! She's stolen photos from other resin jewelry sellers as well!

Have any of you had this happen? What did you do? How did things turn out in the end? I've been thinking of giving my lawyer a call, but wonder if it is worth the bother.  Huh

I'll like it better when it calms down & fades out a bit. Pretty intense!
