41  COOKING / Dessert / Hello My Delicious Cupcake! on: September 26, 2010 09:20:07 AM
I got this recipe off a pretty hilarious blog called The Cupcake Ninja.  http://thecupcakeninja.blogspot.com/  Nothing like the smell of pumpkin spice on a fall morning (even though its supposed to be 90 degrees today - ugh!) 
  Really delicious and they look pretty awesome too!  (If I do say so myself - haha!)  They are supposed to be for a dinner we are going to tonight, but of course I had to try a couple to make sure they were okay! Cheesy

42  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Wine Cork Bath Mat! on: July 19, 2010 10:03:55 AM
Here's a bath mat I did for the FOC Swap.  I'm not much of a drinker so I ordered wine corks online (proceeds went to a wildlife refuge) and sliced away! (All the corks are cut in half.)  I used this tutorial http://www.craftynest.com/2010/03/wine-cork-bath-mat/ but used a utility knife to cut and used silicone glue.  I'm not sure if this was a better choice than the hot glue in the tut - but it made more sense to me.  So here ya go - the fabulous wine cork bath mat! Cheesy

43  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I'm in love with Mail Sacks! on: July 18, 2010 09:22:22 AM
I've made a few of these and really love how they turn out...perhaps it has something to do with my addiction to big roomy bags that I can put tons of stuff into - I made this one for the FOC swap and I was LOVING the fabric - maybe my favorite so far.Here is my daughter modeling for me.  Wink

and some close ups - pockets on the inside - ones a double & one's a zipper

I might have to go get some more of this fabric and make one for myself!  LOL!
44  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / FLASH the worm on: June 29, 2010 01:46:52 PM
This is a little worm I got off of edenkitty's wist - I made it for the Woodland Creature swap.  Never really thought about needle felting a flash drive before - but that's why I love swaps - always gives you new ideas!  So here ya go - its Flash the Worm.  Smiley

45  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Winona the Beaver on: June 29, 2010 01:40:59 PM
I made this beaver pillow for edenkitty in the Woodland Creature swap - and SHE named her Winona! Cheesy  EK is from the Pacific north west so I knew I wanted to do a beaver, just took me a while to figure out how the heck to go about it!  LOL!  Here she is, enjoying her new home - and a quick look at her lovely beaver tail.  Wink

46  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Boris the Tattooed StrongMan! on: June 18, 2010 07:32:01 AM
I sent this out a few weeks ago for the Be Awesome Swap.  He is inspired by Mimi Kirschner's tattooed dolls.  I drew up a pattern, dyed the toile and embroidered the face-he's about 18" tall, give or take.  Who doesn't need a big handsome man around the house.  Wink

47  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Other Mother Purse on: April 19, 2010 07:19:06 AM
I always feel a little weird posting swap projects - kind of like posting something that doesn't belong to me anymore - but I was so happy with how this turned out, and so happy my swap partner liked it that I just had to post!  This was for the Coraline swap.  It is a painting of "The Other Mother" that I then stitched onto a bag that I made.  The inside has bug fabric to go along with the theme.  Smiley  Thanks for having a look!

48  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bird Charm Bracelet on: April 11, 2010 09:16:33 PM
I had to show off this beautiful bracelet I received in a swap with PirateColey!  She knows I'm a crazy bird lady and so made this especially for me!  And look at the sweeeeeet earrings that go along with it!  Beautiful work!
49  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Circular knitting needle case on: March 05, 2010 02:32:37 PM
-Not sure if this belongs here or in the knitting section....seems like this is the best place.  Wink
I made this for a friend who recently took up knitting again - she has fallen in love with circular needles and was looking at a roll in the knitting shop that was going for $85!!!!  WHAAAA?Huh?  I went off measurements fir a case I found online - but I lined the pockets, added a zipper pocket, quilted the front, added interfacing for a little more body, and added ties instead of snaps. There are pockets enough for 10 circular needles and then a few for scissors or regular needles although I found out the circular case dimensions don't really account for long needles....I don't think it will really be an issue for her.

It was much more time consuming than I had anticipated, but I'm happy with the outcome.  I chose the fabrics based on her LOVE of gardening - hope she likes it!  Smiley

Outside - all folded up

Inside - lotsa pockets!

50  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I'm officially in love with dotees! on: January 28, 2010 05:36:21 PM
I just finished my first dotee swap (well, at least all my partners have received) and I have to say this swap was the most fun ever!  Of course I had great inspiration from my partners, but I thought I'd show off my creations.... Wink

First one went to Ssmart...a voodoo doll

Next was a little skeleton dude for edelc...

then came the Queen of Hearts for nicc79

and finally a "flower man" for attackofthequacks!

Thanks ssmart - can't wait for the next round!  Cheesy
