I received from ollieorange today! Check out my haul. I can't wait to actually open up these packages!!




Excuse all the dog noses. They have to investigate everything that comes through the door.

DAY 13
ollieorange and I agreed to make something other than a container since we both have plenty of bags. She made the most incredible wreath!! I can't wait to hang this on the door.




DAY 12
An awesome vase filled with wonderful goodies! Pirate flag, boo soap, wind-up skeleton, band-aids and some adorable raven stickers!


DAY 11
It's sugar skull day!!! I received an awesome glittered sugar skull, skull ice-cube trays (which are already in the freezer) and skull jersey fabric!



DAY 10 & DAY 9
For day 10 I received some fantastic orange yarn. I love the color orange and can't wait to find the perfect project for this.

For day 9 I received a super cute mummy doll and some Halloween candles. I think these are the the ones that drip different colors Smiley.


DAY 8
Super cool tray and skeleton serving forks! I can't wait to use these.


DAY 7Fun party stuff! A fake brain packaged like a steak, super cute napkins and labels that you can put over wine bottles to make them look like poison or other spooky things. Can't wait to use these!


DAY 6
Halloween banner!! Just like the one on my wists. It's just what our mantle needed!


DAY 5
Candle holder + orange candles. I love candles so these will go up in flames pretty quickly here Wink.


DAY 4
Super cute tea towels with pumpkin tea! Yum!


DAY 3
Spooky Halloween bottles! The red one is filled with a syrup-ey liquid that looks just like blood...eeewwwww! Great decorations.


DAY 2
Dog day! Zombie dog, biscuit mix, dog toy, cookie cutters and a little costume - all in a very cute basket!


I tried to get some shots of Beatrice in her costume but she wasn't in much of a modeling mood Smiley.

263  Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein Clothespins in Halloween Decor and Parties by LimeRiot on: September 20, 2010 07:59:45 PM
I've been having fun with clothespins and felt lately! I made this couple last night. They were very quick and easy and will be fun to have hanging around over halloween.



I made a pattern out of paper, cut the felt pieces, glued the pieces in place, embellished with a little embroidery and then glued the whole thing to a clothespin. I considered putting magnets on them but it's kind of fun to just clip them around the house (see below) Smiley.



Here is a picture of the back...



Thanks for looking!

264  Arrgghhh You Ready For Talk Like a Pirate Day? in Needlework: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: September 18, 2010 09:23:24 AM
I made this hoop for my partner in the Embroidery Hoopla swap and since tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day I thought I'd share it with all of you!

My partner likes pirates and giant squid so I worked with both of those themes. I cross-stitched the skull and cross bones and cut the squid from felt and embroidered them on.



I used onegroovyday's awesome tutorial to finish the back. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359164.msg4208747#msg4208747


I used this pattern for the skull motif: http://crossstitch.about.com/od/patternsfromyourguide/ig/Expressive-Motifs-Patterns/Small-Skull-and-Crossbones.htm

Ayyyy mateys - thanks for looking!

As promised...here are some photos of the wonderful hoop that missmoppet sent me!

I told her about my fascination with odd creatures and she totally delivered! Praying Mantis' are one of my favorites! I love love love the crayon tinting and the way she wrapped the hoop. It's the perfect piece to start my hoopla wall with!!



Here is a shot of it next to the wall that it will eventually be hung on. Aren't the colors perfect!?!



Thank you SOOO much, missmoppet. I love my new hoop!!

Oh fun! I love Mario monkey!! His outfit is totally perfect Smiley. The pincushion is awesome too.


In other news...I received from wonderwoman1976 today! Here are some photos of all the goodies I received.

Cute monkey card, socks for critter making, sock monkey shrinky-dink charms, buttons and of course, a bright and friendly sock monkey!



Her daughter stole the ears before they could be sewn on. I think it makes him kinda look like a duck-monkey hybrid Smiley Smiley  Cheesy.


Thanks wonderwoman!!!

My partner, wonderwoman, has received but is really busy so I'm posting pics of what I sent her Smiley.

She wanted me to craft a critter for her daughter who loves dinosaurs. I found instructions for this guy in the book, Stray Sock Sewing.



RAWR!!!


I also made a couple other little critters for her daughter, sock zebra and sock rainbow bunny. Sorry the pics are pretty terrible - I took these at about 1am when I finished sewing them Smiley.



I sent a couple pairs of fun socks for future critter making and a book, Stupid Sock Creatures, but I didn't get pictures of those.

I hope you and your daughter enjoyed the package, wonderwoman!

269  Sock-o-saurus Rex! Rawr! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: August 24, 2010 09:51:19 PM
I made this for my partner's dinosaur-lovin' daughter in the sock monkey/critter swap.

I found the instructions in the book, Stray Sock Sewing. It took 7 socks, a bit of felt and a few sore sewing fingers to complete Smiley.

I used womens socks for the body but wish I had used mens so I could stuff him a bit fatter. Next time!





Thanks for looking! MWAH! Dino kiss...

270  No Mayo Homemade (almost) Potato Salad in Recipes and Cooking Tips by LimeRiot on: August 07, 2010 11:33:33 PM
This is my go-to side dish for summer time BBQ's. It's always a big hit and super easy to make. I made this for a party last night and every person that tried it asked for the recipe Smiley.



I don't know the origin of this recipe although it's most likely from my Mom's kitchen. She makes this all the time Smiley.

You can make as much or as little as you'd like but the below ingredients will serve 8 - 10. Play around with the amounts to suit your tastes. I change it up everytime I make it!



Here's what you'll need...
- 1.5 - 2 lbs small red potatoes
- 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh dill
- 4 -5 green onions (including the light green portion)
- 3/4 cup Girard's Champagne salad dressing
- 1 tblspn lemon pepper
- salt and pepper to taste

Here's what you do...
- Bring a big pot of water to boil
- Chop up the potatoes into approx 1/2 inch chunks and submerge in the boiling water. I usually just halve the small ones and quarter the larger ones
- Boil for ~8 minutes or until potatoes are soft but not falling apart
- Drain, set aside and cool to room temperature
- Meanwhile chop up your dill and slice your green onions
- Once your potatoes have cooled, add the salad dressing, lemon pepper, dill and green onions and stir gently
- Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste and you're done!!

This salad can be made ahead of time and actually tastes even better if it spends a night in the fridge. Don't add the green onions until right before serving though - they will brown and wilt if added too early.

Random tip...if you cook with a lot of fresh herbs and you don't have herb scissors...get some! They save so much time!!  Here's a pic of mine Smiley.


Enjoy!!
