I was just going to take the train to either Cedar Hills and get bread, or to the Pearl District and get VooDoo Donuts xD

What's a VooDoo Donut? Lol, I'm intrigued.

Only the best Donut shop EVER! And I am sooo happy they are in Portland and not in Seattle. It is much easier to go to them in moderation when it involves a 3 hr drive. Wink

So I got my envie out of "mail jail". Here is all the really cool loot I received from Samantha.Arch:

There are a bunch of fall stickers (love the glitter ones), three skeins of embroidery floss, a couple ATCs and ATC blanks, some cool pumpkin cut outs (the white jack-o-lantern is awesome), a bit of printed vellum, a bag with buttons and a whole bunch of jump rings (I needed these!) and last but not least...chocolate!

I think the ACTs need a close up:

Both of these are great...though the crime scene is my absolute favorite. Smiley

Thank you so much Samantha! I love everything and will put it to good use. I was worth the wait. Wink

OK...I'm finally posting what I received yesterday from Verifiresis. Smiley

Here is a picture of da loot:

-She sent me a really groovy wine bottle label. Which I am trying to decide if I want to put on a bottle or craft with.
-A nifty crafted Halloween picture frame.
-And a face mask with the international symbol for blood-borne biohazard stamped on it. Smiley  Ok so the last one may confuse some people...I'm a huge zombie fan and that's the symbol they used in 28 Days Later.
-Oh and the note she added (it's what's inside the picture frame) has a couple pieces of clip art. One is a zombie hello kitty (awesome!) The other is my own zombie pimp icon. hehe. I'll definatly add those to my journal.

Here is a close up of the mask:

One more step in the first line of defense against zombies! :

Thanks Verifiresis! It's all a bunch of fun stuff and definatly me. Smiley

44  True Love is Dead - Altered Altoid Tin in Completed Projects by spookygrrrly on: September 08, 2009 02:52:53 PM
Here is a little something that I put together after having the idea kickin' around my head a couple days.

It's the bottom (deeper) half of an altoid tin as a base. I used paper, rubber stamps for the words, glitter, skull beads, candles, and stickers. Also I sealed the whole thing with a couple coats of spray varnish.

I like how it came out and turned it into a magnet. Smiley

45  Frank Shrinky Dink Pendant - first project in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by spookygrrrly on: September 05, 2009 09:58:03 PM
I've been super inspired by all the stuff you guys have been making with shrinky dinks and just had to give it a try. So I finally picked up a pack of SDs today and after much trial and error made my first pendant.

I think it came out pretty good Smiley The image I drew on before shrinking. I traced a picture of Karloff and then did all the shading by hand.  It's actually two pieces that I fused so that I could seal the glitter inbetween. The glitter is twinkles glitter paint. The only thing I'm trying to decide is if I want to leave him as is or add some colored rhinestones. (Hey a girl likes her glitz)

Oh and here is picture of me wearing the pendant so you can get an idea of the proportion:

I'm all for feedback...so feel free to tell me what you think.

46  The White Rabbit in Needlework: Completed Projects by spookygrrrly on: August 21, 2009 06:19:33 PM
I finished my second block last night:

I just gotta say...those little hearts are a pain in the tail!!! I got better at them as I went on but it was the first time making such a tight curve in outline stitch.

I did try out a couple new stitches too. I used an interlaced running stitch on the sleeves and the banner. I also used the couching technique on the ruffle around his neck. Both of those are fun to do and I can see using them more in the future.

Here are a couple detail shots of the more decorative parts:

Thanks for looking Smiley

47  Alice block - first embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by spookygrrrly on: August 18, 2009 09:15:47 AM
I finished my first embroidery piece!:

This is the first block for my Alice in Wonderland quilt. I've never done embroidery before. It was way too hot to do my normal knitting this summer so I decided to try needlework out. Much cooler than working with wool. Smiley

The fabric is just bleached muslin. The design came from a coloring book that I've had for about 20 years.

Most of the piece is done in an outline stitch. Though I used some satin stitch to fill in the shoes and as an accent on the dress. I'm most proud of the satin stitch coming out really even and the eye. Eyes are really tricky. Oh and there is a french knot as the flamingos eye too. I think it took me five tries to figure out that french knot!

Now I'm working on the white rabbit.
