161  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 55 ENTRIES / Cupcake Mama! on: October 01, 2010 07:51:01 AM
What better way to get my craft on with Crafting Mama, then by doing something Mama is quite comfortable in?  I enlisted the help of my kids and my hubby, making this a family challenge!
I was going to make the entire cover of the Crafting Mama, but it didn't fit on my table!  So I put her pretty blue scarf she made around her neck!  And because of the ridiculous amount of cupcakes, after laying them all out, I took them apart and spread the cupcake love around town! 
 
Stats:
10 hours
11cups of flour
6.25cups sugar
11eggs
4 pounds of butter
4 pounds of icing sugar
Makes a total of 500+cupcakes!

There are only 414 that went into this, but it was great tasty fun!

Firstly the finished project:

Process:
lining the mini cupcake pan

ready to ice!

"assembly"

all ready to be spread around town

162  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ferb Monkey! (and a bean bag game) on: September 25, 2010 06:41:11 AM
It's Ferb!  My son (who is 5.5) and I were in the Kids craft and swap and believe it or not, He sewed every seam, stuffed and attached limbs and eyes!  I did the nose and the hair and the required cutting.  He's a natural.  I might buy me a new sewing machine and give him my old one!
up close and personal

the whole guy


And the bonus bean bag game.  The boys got giant Kinder eggs for easter this year and I was holding onto those centers for a reason (though at the time I didn't know what) and then I thought of this!  6 bean bags you can toss into the cups.  it's pretty tricky because the opening and the bags are nearly the same size.   



Enjoy and thanks for looking!
163  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / WIP bag and accessories on: September 25, 2010 06:27:20 AM
I made this bag and "accessories" for Missing_Muse in the Make a friend swap.  But I love it so much I thought It deserved it's own post.
I especially love the way it flukily ended up having that circle centered, which led me to adding the embroidery (from Urbanthreads.com).  Which made a small project a large one.  But i absolutely love how it turned out.  And so did Missing Muse, which is the point of all this swapping business:)
Anyway, onto my one pic. The bag the needle roll and the pin cushion (which is out of place but I was playing with the scraps and thought it was cute Smiley)


enjoy! And thanks for looking!
164  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toy box Tuesday- September 7,10 on: September 07, 2010 09:49:08 AM
I figured since I've finaly finished this dolly I'd start toybox tuesday this week!  It's also my first contribution, but not my last!

This is a topsy turvy doll I made for a little sweethearts 2nd birthday.  It's one doll, 2 sides.  She's terribly disproportioned (the doll), but we all come in different shapes and sizes right?  Just because she has incredibly short arms and a long torso it doesn't mean we shouldn't love her less. Grin


Blondies skirt was an umbrella!




( they didn't look so yellow on the camera.  Not sure why the flash worked for one and not the rest...  Silly camera.)
enjoy and I hope you have something to contribute!

166  COOKING / Dessert / Thomas the Tank Engine cake on: August 16, 2010 10:41:53 AM
A friend of mine's Son turned 3.  He requested a Thomas cake, and His Mom asked me to make it.  Of course!  I love making cake!  Especially cakes that are intricate and require carving!

There are 3 cakes (batches of cake) in this giant cake.  It had to have weighed at least 10 Lbs.  Frosted with butter cream frosting and the face is made of Marshmellow fondant.  It was devoured.  Which is awesome.  I love seeing the cake disappear!








comments and criticism welcome!

Link to the how to I used for the face!

167  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Embroidered notebooks on: August 03, 2010 07:19:35 PM
I wasn't sure wether I should put these here or in embroidery... But since I bound them myself (more or less following a couple of the links on this board on how to bind) I figured they'd go here nicely.
They were made for tlh878 for the August MOH Swap.  The odd Holiday was Sisters Day.  Which is why the insides had some word doodles.




i'm not the most super paper crafter, but I was pretty proud of 'em. (even if I mixed my ability to embroider them.... :/)

The design on the cover is Urbanthreads.com : Let Love and Friendship Reign.

169  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Canadian "55cent" 1 stamp swap? on: July 06, 2010 10:00:44 AM
So I was looking at the 44 cent swap for the Americans, and was thinking how fun it would be.... Only seeing as I'm Canadian, I can't join, But what if there was a swap like that for us Canadians?  What do the rest of you Canadians think?  I could organize, it'd be my first time organizing alone, but it could be fun.


edited to add these links to the American version!

170  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Rarwmmgurggulgurggul - Murloc coasters! on: July 04, 2010 07:47:30 PM
Who doesn't love a baby murloc?
 I made this set of 4 coasters for Dinosaurus Meg in the Be Awesome swap.   They also have a cozie that has +20 to frost resist on it , you know, once they've been chilled by an ice cold drink?  Those baby murlocs need to be warmed some how Cheesy







Coasters- embroidered murlocs, crayon tinted.
Cozy- wet felted and stitched with homespun to give it a more finished look.
