1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Natalie Dee - Anxiety Girl on: November 04, 2010 07:08:03 AM
Had no idea there was a costume challenge. It's definitely not as cool as a lot of the others, but I fugured, what the hell! Wish I'd known there was a contest on here - would've taken process and more detailed pics. Smiley

I went as Anxiety Girl, from the Natalie Dee comic:



I already had the green sneakers, and bought the leggings, shirt, and boxers. (Was hard to find any green shorts to this time of year, unless they were huge basketball shorts.)

I sewed the cape and used fusible interfacing (with some emergency fabric glue) to make the applique on the front of the shirt and back of the cape because I couldn't get my stupid bobbin rethreaded. I also used interfacing for the mask. I also should've used a knit for the applique on the shirt as well as the mask - both were really stiff, but I didn't get the materials until a few days before halloween and didn't make the costume until the day of, so all and all, I'm satisfied.

Several people said "Cool, a ninja turtle." WTF? Clearly I am ANXIETY GIRL, and plus, none of the TMNTs wore green masks.

My friend who took the picture told me too look anxious. Wish I'd done the pose instead, though.

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My Natalie Dee Costume on: November 03, 2010 07:16:19 PM
Went as Anxiety Girl, a Natalie Dee comic. Had the green shoes already. Bought blue leggings, shirt, and boxers retail. Made the cape, apliques, and mask.



The photographer told me to look anxious, so I just kind of spazzed out. Wish I'd thought to do the pose!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Halloween Costume In-Progress: Marcy Darcy on: October 26, 2009 04:38:03 PM
This year, I'm gonna be Marcy Darcy from married w/ children. I have some bad tapered stonewash jeans I got, red/gold 80s jewelry, a blue and black cardigan w/ shoulder pads and gold buttons, a gold braided belt, and some ridiculous 80s booties (kind of western style) to wear. Making the shirt. Should have done stencil/paintbrush, but I waited around too long, so tulip will have to do. I'll try to update pictures as I finish the shirt, and, of course, full costume. Smiley

4  COOKING / Dessert / 90s Party Cupcakes - Pics but no recipe, sorry! (Adult content) on: August 20, 2009 09:13:31 AM
My BFF got a cupcake kit for her b-day, and so we used a recipe from there (i believe it was "lemon butterfly cupcake w/ icing") to make cupcakes for our friends' 90's-themed b-day party. The result was delicious. Unfortunately, instead of using the icing recipe to make the decorating (colored) icing, we used store-bought to do piping with and it SUUUUUUCKED. At any rate, here are the results. (The first one is NSFW, maybe.) See if you can identify the bands!




5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fascinator/Birdcage Dealy on: June 29, 2009 10:54:28 AM
Made this for my BFF's bachelorette party. Her wedding theme is sort of peacocks+60s/70s concert posters, so I tried to incorporate some psychedelic colors. It was 1,000x better than all the generic veils we saw on other bachelorettes throughout the night.






6  COOKING / Dessert / Kirbycakes! on: February 15, 2009 07:25:29 PM
Made some Kirby cupcakes for the boy - the recipe was just a box mix w/ almond extract added. I made the buttercream from scratch and substituted almond extract for the vanilla:


7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / i'd hit that (copycat nintendo x-stitch) on: February 15, 2009 07:22:25 PM
Copied this idea off of elor23. Made it for the boy's birthday, and he loved it:

8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Need Help Finding a Pattern for Halloween! on: September 26, 2008 11:56:21 AM
Looking for a pattern preferably slightly below knee-length and with long sleeves, and hopefully something I could just slip over my head and not need buttons/zippers/etc. Any ideas of patterns that would work for this?
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Planner/Binder: A Work-In-Progress (w/ pictures) on: June 23, 2008 08:52:55 PM
I'm the maid of honor in my little sister's wedding, which is tentatively going to be May of 2009. I posted a thread asking for information/advice about wedding planners, and upon the great advice of *MAR* and other Craftsters, decided to tackle it myself.

It's a work in progress, but I was so excited that I went on and took some pictures of what I have done already. I also bought a bunch of dividers, plastic inserts, etc. I have some rubber stamps and think I will stamp each category name on the index dividers. Most of the rest of it will just be various printouts of timelines, etc.

I cut the paper (which I *thought* was black in the store, but looked more brown-ish when I got it home) and stupid me started placing everything (the stickers) going the wrong direction from the cut, so I had to insert the cover side-ways. I went on and did the back cover the same way to match it, so it looks intentional.

I got the hefty scrapbooking paper and stickers at Big Lots. I did the birdie design as a takeoff of this print...though they have a boston terrier so maybe I'll do a re-do/alternate using a takeoff of this little fella.

I used vintage floral fabric that sort of went with the colors. I like the kind of retro kid's storybook-ish look (perhaps attributable to the font stickers) and Holly Hobby-esque-ness, but it is NOT what I'd envisioned. I think their colors (not definite yet) are going to be black, white, and red, so if I can find some good paper between now and when I get the innards finished, I may do an alternate cover/spine/back. I wanted something that would be good for both my sister and her fiancee, and I'm afraid they'll think the cover (as-is) is too little-girly countrish or whatever. Anyway, not bad for whipping something up in an hour or so. I just wanted to get SOMETHING done to give me momentum, b/c I am NOTORIOUS for starting craft projects and not finishing them.

Anyway, enough long-winded discussion (sorry for the smears/glares):








I'll post more pictures as I work on things. Oh...and I couldn't find my gluesticks or rubber cement, so had to use Elmer's white glue, which is why the birdies look like crap.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Planners/Organizers? on: June 16, 2008 06:44:16 AM
Hey all -

My sister just got engaged and as the Maid of Honor, I want to get her a great binder-style organizer. I was going to just make my own, but looked at one in Target and thought it was probably more helpful/in-depth.

I checked on Etsy and couldn't really come up with anything.

Any recent or to-be brides have any suggestions? I've found a few on Amazon but they all seem so...frou frou.
