1  Embroidered Owl in Needlework: Completed Projects by autumnkisses on: April 09, 2012 11:06:05 AM
This is my first pattern I've done that hasn't been in a kit (mind you I've only done one of those and its collecting dust in my craft closet unfinished).
It took about 3 hours (or two evenings of watching tv) and was a quick and cute project.

I ended up just google searching "Owl Embroidery Designs" and came across a cute pattern that is posted here ->  http://zuill.us/andreablog/

Since this is my first time doing this I wasn't really sure how to get it onto my Aida cloth, so I just ended up doing it kind of a ghetto way and printed off the design, taped it onto a bright lit window, and traced it onto the cloth. It was kind of a pain but it worked.
Now I just need to iron it and find a cute vintage frame for it.

I'm already looking for another quick pattern to do up, I'm thinking a sugar skull next.
Anyways, here it is...

Yours are nicer than mine..but here's my rendition of the cupcake. I made some for the farmers market today and they were a hit, I had to save one for myself so I could take a picture of it!

It kind of got squished in transportation.

9  Homemade Soaps-Sud Sisters in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by autumnkisses on: July 10, 2009 10:23:19 AM
These are some soaps that my sister ("Lusty Butterfly") and I have made over the last few months. Sorry, my photography skills aren't that great  Undecided
Youthful Mint: has kelp and vitamin E in it to sooth and tighten your skin. It has a nice soft mint color to it as well as peppermint scent.

Just Plain Poppy: lots of poppyseeds for a nice gritty feel to give a deep clean. This soap is awesome for getting grease off your hands (our bf's love it!) and feels nice to scrub your tootsie's with.

Purely Pumpkin: Has wheat germ in it, and is good for dry skin and ecemea. Deep orange color with flecks of wheat germ.

Stain Remover: Deep milky white color, good for any type of stains..including ink.

Oreo Bar: Hasn't been packaged..or formally named..this is our first hand at micca...has a neat oreo blizzard look to it we think!

Comments/critisims appreciated!

10  First Crackle Finish in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by autumnkisses on: July 10, 2009 10:06:55 AM
This is a dresser that I stole aquired from my previous rental that I lived in. The landlord was more of a slum lord and didn't do anything that needed to be done, and while moving into the house I had to first move his furniture out. This piece was upstairs and it was very heavy, so that is where it resided. I don't have a before picture, but imagine a peutrid mustard color with ugly fixtures.
I painted the piece with a flat black color- so this is the color that shows through on the cracks. I then painted over it with the crackle...I applied it a little too thick in some places, so the cracks were rather deep. I was going for the less is more look. So...I painted over the cracks with my top color, which is a beige color and then redid the cracks again. You can tell where I did this, it kind of looks patched. I am not totally satisfied with the result, but it does look a lot better. I still haven't put the hardware in yet, I have to wood fill the existing holes and then drill some for the pulls. (Which I cannot find...they are simple metal pulls that are half circles, and you put your hand in underneath and pull) Here's what it all looks like right now....Suggestions, comments/criticism appreciated.
Heres the dresser, excuse the mess..this is our spare bedroom where my bf throws all his stuff.

A blurry picture of the cracks

This is the top of the dresser, you can see the patchiness that i was talking about here

Old fixtures, I might keep these if I spray paint them another color..maybe
