91  COOKING / Dessert / 1 week ...2 birthdays ...decorated cakes for babygirl & her older brother on: September 24, 2008 10:35:23 AM
End of August...beginning of September is always hectic planning parties for both of my kids who are 2 years and 1 week apart in age.

We decorated my son's cake with his favorite thing...Thomas the Tank Engine...and he helped to put the 'balloons' on!

and for my girl we went over the top girly with birds, ponies, flowers, and lollipops! Note that her name was spelled out in purple icing on the right side, but I photo edited it out to keep it not so personal for posting here.

They're not professional or anything...as I'm not striving to do this for a living... but they were a lot of fun for my little ones!
92  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Took a break from my swaps to play more with resin...very sparkly!!! on: July 23, 2008 11:28:30 AM
I've been so busy getting my swap crafts done...that I actually needed a break! Here are my latest sparkly creations!

I just love how they sparkle in the sun & also under electric stars! I was half-tempted to keep these beauties all to meself!! Wink

Now that I got that out of my system...I'm going to go work on learning how to crochet! Grin Comments are most appreciated!
93  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ravelry...help on: July 17, 2008 04:16:02 PM
I can't post messages on ravelry. I can type them...but when I hit send...i get prompted to save the file to my computer...it doesn't send the message.

Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

I'm not ignoring anyone!  Wink I just can't respond to your messages right now over there. Tongue
94  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How did you learn to crochet? Where should I start? I need a lot of help! on: July 14, 2008 05:37:32 AM
I'm dying to learn crochet...and have no one to show me how.  Huh

I know there are books and videos out there, but I have a hard time with diagrams & have attempted to learn from some videos on youtube without success. My results are embarrasing!  Embarrassed Truly!

Can anyone help ...what worked for you?  Grin

Many thanks in advance! Wink
95  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 29 ENTRIES / Childhood Treasures Preserved in Children's Literary Hero Table...Dr. Seuss, etc on: July 02, 2008 08:47:21 PM
Ok...so here goes...My mother read to me a lot when I was a childso it only stands to reason that my childhood heroes were & still are the glorious authors and illustrators of childrens books.

Here is my table representing 4 of my favorites: Dr. Seuss & The Cat in the Hat, Maurice Sendak & Where the Wild Things Are, A. A. Milne & Winnie the Pooh, and Beatrix Potter & Peter Rabbit.

The legs of the table are carved from cedar posts and painted with acrylic paints & then sprayed with a clear coat to protect them.
The top of the table is home to all of my childhood treasuressome of which were thrown away by my mother during several of her cleaning raids in my room.and then secretly rescued from the trash. I remember her calling it my junk;). I still treasure itand get a warm fuzzy feeling when I look at the things inside.

The top of the table has an inlaid piece of .25 plexiglasswhich can be lifted out for adding future treasures.

Please let me know what you think...this is one of my most personal creations that I hold dearest to my heart...so comments are really appreciated! Thank you so much!

Details of Junk/Treasure:

One of my very first softies...I think I was 9 or 10 when I made this little doggie:

My kids just love this! Its a great teaching tool for toddlersto pull up on, cruise around when learning to walk, they have improved their language skills by naming the things they see inside as well as their colors. When the little things are no longer choking hazardsIll let them play with the stuffmaybe! We'll see!  Cheesy

Thanks again for peeking at my creation!   Smiley
96  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Moonstruck...I heart Cher swap anyone? on: June 30, 2008 10:05:38 AM
Anytime that movie is on tv I have to stop what I'm doing and watch it!

Anyone else love Moonstruck like I do?  Grin
97  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Secret partner swap... on: June 30, 2008 10:04:00 AM
Just an idea ...like a secret santa...you know who you're crafting for ...but not who you'd be recieving from until package arrives. Pics of completed crafts could be posted as they are made to keep everyone guessing which one they might be recieving.

Sound like fun?  Wink
98  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tutorial...kind of...for making resin pendants with butterflies inside... on: June 27, 2008 12:07:55 PM
Been seeing some folks here a little hesitant to try resin & thought I should share with everyone how I did it...so I made this easy peasy tutorial sheet.  Smiley

Proceed with caution...because it's addictive...you've been warned!  Wink

Here are some of the others I made using the same method...and I must mention that Beadizzygrl tatted the gorgeous butterflies!  Grin
99  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / soldered glass crochet pendant... on: June 26, 2008 03:57:07 PM
This was inspired by my 'secret' partner for a swap...because someone loves to crochet...and now I have half a dozen different designs and can't stop...

Like knitting it's an addiction! Wink

I just crack myself up re reading that 'hooked on crocheting'...hah! God, somebody help me!  Roll Eyes
100  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Miss Muffett...now on a double sided apron...for ritapizza...very pic heavy on: June 24, 2008 10:54:59 AM
I made up the pattern for the apron...cut out the white part...transfered my artwork onto it via inkjet transfer paper...added some stabilizer to help it keep its shape...made about 4 yards of ruffle...sewed that on...as well as the neck ribbon...then sewed the whole thing to the contrasting fabric...right sides facing...turned it. Sewed on the ribbon tie at the waist as I stitched all around the edge. Wow...that was a mouthful!

Just thought I'd share the process...might not be the right way to make an apron...but I'd never made one before! Wink

My daughter had to get in on the photo opportunity...

Comments/questions are always welcome!  Wink
