172  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!

173  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.

A small item is defined as: by time-2 or less hours; by size-earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, magnets; by price-$10 or less. U.S. packages MUST have a DC#, and international packages must have a receipt. Please provide both to the organizer when you ship. Shipping priority is suggested but not a requirement.

In order for this to be a monthly swap we MUST have a fast turn around time. Due to the fast turn around time, the organizer reserves the right to not add someone to the swap if there has been a documented history of repeated late sending. Please do not sign up for this swap unless you are prepared to send on time, if not early, and post pictures as soon as your package arrives.

Communication is a must! You must check in on the original thread and the gallery thread at least once a week. You also must check in with your partner once a week. Poor communication or lack thereof will be noted in feedback.  You MUST PM both tlh878 and belladune  with your questionaire,  recived, late sending, and any other questions or concerns.

175  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!

176  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.

177  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 52 ENTRIES / CRIB SHEET turned pretty dress and then some! (PIC INTENSE!-8-) on: July 02, 2010 04:47:09 PM
So no one said there was a size limit on the size of sheet used.  While a lot of people seem to be using king flats, I went with the smallest fitted sheet possible!
I squeezed a dress (lined with the sheet) little booty cover, cute shoes (Inspired  by this post and the link there in  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348768.0  )  A waist bow, and a headband complete with a flower made of scraps out of that sheet!  All that's left is stuff that went into my scraps to be spun bag they were so small.

Be prepared to Squeeeeee!!!!

Headband with "scraps" flower;


To show the sheet before.  It is sitting on a double sized futon matress

One last picture of uber cuteness, just because I know you want to see it!


Don't forget to vote!

ETA!  I forgot to mention the elastic for the headband and the booty shorts came from the sheet to!! I used as much as I could off that sheet!  Oh and the shoes were hand sewn.  The big ones wanted play outside and I needed something to keep my hands busy Smiley
178  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / "Everything" craft store wholesaler advice and recommendation. on: June 17, 2010 01:08:33 PM
A friend of mine and I are looking into opening an "everything" type craft store.  yarn, ceramics paints, xstich embroidery etc... everything.  We know there is a need for it locally, as all we have is 3 aisle in Walmart craft section,  quilting store,  and a scrap book store.   It's the everything else  we plan on stocking up on, though we would still carry some of the stuff available at the other stores to. 
I know to be professional and welcoming to everyone. And I have a husband who is a buisness owner himself, who has already provided me with all that type of information.  What I'm looking for is recomendation for wholesalers, suppliers and the like.

We are in the very begining stages of it trying to price out suplies and over head costs and location and the like.  But having a more clear idea of what wholesalers charge we could get a more clear picture of the start up costs and find out if it's even feesible.

Thanks in advance for the advice and recommendations ladies (and gents, there must be some of you out there Cheesy )

180  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / pin woven little clutchy-thingy on: May 11, 2010 08:04:06 AM
So, my sister is in the downy dumps. A lot of crazy things have happened in the past 4 months in her life, so I made her this clutchy-thingy.  I'm going to mail it out today and hope it gets there before I go visit.  It turned out way smaller then I thought it would... but eh, maybe she can put something in it?

A few artsy close  ups of the weave:




I was inspired by this post:

and this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344664.0


Comments and critique welcome.. This is my first weaving project worth posting (there's another one but oooh... she's ugly...), and i know it's wonky in a few places, but eh... I'm learning!  Also, this has made my want for a real loom stronger...
