291  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My Spring Wreath on: March 04, 2012 01:43:45 PM
We've got blooming flowers here, so I decided to hang my spring wreath on the front door on Thursday.

I made this on June 25, 2009 with stuff I bought from A.C. Moore and Michael's. It seems strange that I would remember that date, but I do and I know it's correct. Anyhoo, everything is hot glued on and I used extra ivy leaves on the back and sides to hide some spots where there was more glue.



I had just gotten home with my stuff to start working on this. I knew Farrah Fawcett had just passed away. My friend Michelle called me and asked if I heard the news yet. I thought she was talking about Farrah and she said nope. Michael Jackson had just died at that point.

It's kind of weird that I think about Michael Jackson and not Farrah Fawcett when I look at this wreath.

I agree with MadHatteh!

Is his light saber a bubble wand?

It looks totally legit. You're not giving yourself enough credit, I clicked the picture because it looked just like Obi-Wan and I got excited. Nice job!

Those Jedi costumes are deceptively difficult to get right.

And you WINGED it, WITH A MIGRAINE!
You rock and so does the costume you made. If you need proof of that, look at your hubby's grin. Smiley Awesome sauce!

OMG that's too wild!

On a related note, I believe the bathroom in our 1941-built house was remodeled once. that being said, you should have seen the lid of the toilet tank! It had actually been tiled once with the same plastic tile we have in the bathroom, and then covered in black and white wallpaper that makes me think of a Raphaelian toile design, if there is even such a thing. It's wildly ugly so I decided to have at it.

Why am I posting this info here? Because I took some pieces of an Asian print newspaper and mod podged my toilet tank lid like you did your table! Smiley I'm almost done with it and will have to post the after photos. The before photos were too ugly to share.

Good job on your table!

 Roll Eyes they remind me of rubber duckies. I would make some of these and sew them to plain white towels for a bathroom and maybe some for a bathroom wall hanging.


Awesome little projects. Hitting "rocks" for you! Grin

Glad you liked it! This has been my favorite swap so far. Grin
296  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My Take on Creepy Cute Crochet on: February 21, 2012 06:38:49 AM
I recently took a couple pieces of clothing over to my friend, Nicole the Knitter. She needed me to hem some pants and mend a shirt. When I bagged them up to return them to her, I tucked a couple little guys into the bag for her to find.



About two years ago, Nicole got me the Creepy Cute Crochet book for my birthday. She said it was for selfish reasons because she wanted the minions in the book for herself. Smiley

I made the devil a little taller than he should be, and decided I liked these guys short, like Nosteratu (which, by the way, I just got around to seeing that movie on Netflix because of this little project). They were made with just a little bit of leftover scrap yarn, which is why Nosterfatu's collar is red instead of black...I ran out. But damn it all, his little ears...do you know what they reminded me of? Christopher Eccleston's (Doctor #9) ears. Hmmmm, i might be able to turn Nosferatu into a tiny Nine. BTW, the googly eyes came from IHeartsTheArts, my partner in the Jim Henson swap on Craftster.  Grin

I swear to God, I didn't stuff these guys with catnip. I buy the good 'nip from PetsMart and while I do like to get Dixie and Odin both high, I meant these minions for Nicole, so they care catnip free.

That being said, Odin kidnapped the minions for himself.

I think they turned out so great! It just makes me start looking at things around the house and yard in a different light. Smiley

Oops sorry, Amy. I just reread your post and realized you asked about the textured paper. I used the Fiskars embossing and texture plates.
I basically just held the paper on top of them and colored w/ a colored pencil.

I picked them up on sale a while back and have no flippin' idea how I'm SUPPOSED to use them.  Grin

That's very cool. I would have snagged that myself too. Smiley

Oh wow...we need to do this swap a little more often! Smiley Mandys_momma and I were partners. I received my package the other day. She outdid herself!!!



I got stickers, a glue stick (I can go through those like nobody's business!), ribbons, bingo cards, brads, fasteners, paper flowers, GREAT papers, paint samples, wood samples, tags, jewels, a strip of red film, partial inchies, and two corks...I got spoiled!  Grin

And I had to laugh because at one time, I had some of the same opaque card sentiments as the ones she sent me again and that made my happy. I always wanted more of them but couldn't find any. Love the textured papers she sent  Shocked (I'm guessing she made those herself...very cool!), and the corks will probably be used in some Halloween bottles I'm going to make for my kitchen.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!
