I have received form SugarySweet, for whom I made the cupcake scarf she posted earlier, my very.first.POPPET!!!!! YAY!!!
Why, she's Alive Cullen of course!!!
SugarySweet even made her sparkle!!! Here she is posing in the sunlight so you can see ;P
Here she is with Jasper Bear <3 [signed by the actor who plays him]
And SugarySweet even made her necklace!
I adore her, and I can't wait to make her an entire wardrobe lol Poppet addiction, here I come!
She is SO coming to the Twilight Convention with me next week! Oh yes, there will be pictures! hehe. The actress that plays Alice will be there, so hopefully I can get a photo or autograph with my Alice Poppet
Thank you so much SugarySweet! She's perfection in glitter form, just like a true Cullen hehehe
Wait, wait! Before you commence throwing tea bags at me, let me explain!
As a British-American who collects tea sets, I am a lover of Royal Daulton of course!
So, when I was shopping in Property Control [it's where Disney sells off all it's old crap from like the hotels and restaraunts to cast members] I happened upon a plain white Royal Daulton tea cup! It was only 75 cents, so I grabbed it! Then I set about finding a matching saucer - I grabbed one that was plain white, fit the saucer, and was 50 cents hehe.
Well, I wanted to do something like the flowers I was currently painting all over the place, so this happened:
it's for my Auntie Caz, who is absolutely mad on bees!
Unfortunately, all the money I saved on buying the fine bone china will be spent on mailing it off to England from craptastic Florida lol
I could resist joining the fun! I made a ring and earrings set with pink buttons for one of my friends birthday [and was stupid enough not to take photos] and I gotta say... I'm hooked! I LOVE BUTTONS, w00t! LOL
[I love wire-wrapped rings, too. I'm pumping them out like nobody's business! haha. My mom requested one for Mother's Day even]
.... so... when's the BAA meeting? [Button Addict Anonymous]
[I uber love that particular button]
I've already sorted out some more for a pink and yellow combo! I NEED HELP! haha
Oh my gosh, I am soooo in love with these Bamboo Tiles! There are just a million different things to do with them!
My latest addiction?
TWILIGHT QUOTE NECKLACES! w00t! [written in each character's hand-writing]
This one's Jacob Black's, and it just cracks me up!
I could show you a million more, haha, but I'll spare you I've done Bella, Jacob, Edward, and Jasper quotes, too. The others are in quotes with their initials in red at the bottom, like this:
The one I wear almost everyday is the same style, also Jasper's quote: "...you are worth it." awww, tear! It makes me feel good Hopefully Jackson Rathbone doesn't notice and become alarmed at my nerd-dom when I meet him on Saturday at the Twilight convention! yay!
Next idea - JANE AUSTEN QUOTES!!!! Yay!!!!
And, this is what I made for my bff who's a Dr. Who fan, hardcore lol
I've just recently discovered the wonderful world of wire rings! Unfortunately, Michael's was out of 20 gauge silver coated copper, so I got this beautiful purple colour to play with... My first attempt was... ok, but I wasn't terribly satisfied so I tried again and I think I did pretty well. Fits me perfect, too [I used a glue stick haha]. Anyway, on to pictures!
Here's the latest batch of Twilight-inspired goodies from yours truly!
"Blood Drop" Earrings
"Edward Cullen" Earrings
[Get it? Topaz jewels and the crystal heart? hehe]
"Twilight Sky" Bracelet [I still haven't decided whether or not I like this.... thoughts?]
Personally, I prefer "inspired" pieces instead of INYO'FACE-IMATWILIGHTFANATIC pieces because it feels like my little secret when I wear it and that makes me smile. Plus, some people might not take a 24 year old woman seriously wearing a Twilight Book Cover necklace around her neck.... not that I care, but you know
I can't wait to go to the Twilight Convention here in Orlando in a couple weeks! I'm getting a Photo Op with Jackson Rathbone! WOO!!!! lol [Inside I'm crying because I'm so nervous haha]... I usually get a lot of compliments on my jewelry and Twilight fan events, too ;P
We bought this beautiful dresser at Ikea in the "AS IS" section... A small ding in the wood at the bag shaves off $100? You've got yourself a deal, mate!
Anyway, I love it, but there is one problem... the mirror. I HATE mirrors. So I covered it up everynight... but then when we were moving I saw my poster print of a photograph I took... it seemed to be the perfect size to be framed inside the mirror of the dresser.... so after we moved and un-packed, we unscrewed the mirror, cut the poster to fit, and just put it in the frame on top of the mirror. There you have it!
Personally, I love it. The beautiful shape of the dresser is still on display, plus I don't have to freak out about the mirror - instead, I get to be proud of my photography! haha.
Thanks! The party was fun. I dressed up as Alice and clutched my Jasper bear all night. All of my house is decorated in red and black so no decoration neccesary lol I made lasagna and we drank wine [I made a label that said "Blood of Bella" in Italian, "a 1987 vintage" heh] then we watched a bootleg of Twilight that my brother gave me haha. Then the cake, that was a huge hit.... and some Disney Scene it
A Jasper bear!? Have you posted him here? Any chance of a look?
The party sounds wonderful, I'd love to be able to get my friends to do this. They are Twilight fans too, but at the end of last week we were too busy celebrating Darwin's 200th birthday (we had a Victorian high tea party!) to think to do this!
The Jasper bear I "made" at Build-A-Bear. Put him in the baseball scene outfit, complete with Chucks! hehe
And here's a photo of me as a loose interpretation of Alice that night:
[I swear I had a good time, the camera operator just caught me at a bad time! haha]
I didn't have a grey dress, but I had a white one that was similar material to the one she wears in the kitchen scene. And I have really long hair, so I tied it up in low pigtails with spiky bits sticking out.
And I made the necklace I couldn't find grey velvet ribbon, so I had to use satin and hand sew the sews. Ugh I suck at hand sewing. The pendant I just made by printing the image from Rosalie's necklace and setting it in resin.
I'm having an Anti-Valentine's/Friday the 13th party tonight, and we're celebrating Vampire style! Well, Cullen style, specifically lol. So, for the occasion I made a Twilight cake! It's graphically inspired by the cover of New Moon, in case you didn't notice
It's red velvet cake with cheesecake frosting and white fondant.
For the flowers I bought faux-white carnations and dipped them in red food colouring.
The blood is chocolate syrup with red food colouring.
[FYI - It's totally an upside-down glass in the middle supporting the top layer ]
It's not my best, but it was another frontier and I think it gets the point across, heh.
So, the latest theme to "inspire" my crafts has been Twilight, of course, like many many MANYMANY other women my age [as well as younger and older women]! heh.
Materials: a big, dark silver link chain from Michael's; some red velvet ribbon; black diamond-shape black beads; ruby glass "blood drop" beads; a Swarski crystal heart [teehee!]; some black pearl/hemotite(?)-like dark silver beads that I already had [which don't photograph well, but trust me, the colour reads better in person]; and various findings of course.
I weaved the ribbon through the links and tried to glue it at the ends, but the glue didn't work and left a mess so I picked off what I could and just hand-sewed the ends around the link. Everything else is just as it seems.
MAN, I forgot how much I hate making wire loops! lol
