Thanks! We finally realized how to use the colour dust appropriately and adding the little brown dots really made them look real. Lessons you learn with each new flower!

2  COOKING / Dessert / Fall Wedding Cake with Gumpaste Tiger Lilies on: October 07, 2013 08:31:09 AM
Hi all,

Just wanted to share this wedding cake that my sis and I recently made, including completely handmade, gumpaste tiger lilies for decoration. We had never made a gumpaste tiger lily before, so it was heartening to see them turn out this well. We were proud of how it looked, and more importantly, the bride loved it!

C&C Welcome,
Tea

Hi Friends,

I've been away from Craftster for a while, but I'm baaack and I thought I'd share this quick little refashion with you.

I happened upon this skater style dress outside my local GT Boutique (that'd be Giant Tiger, kids) for $5.00. Yup, FIVE BUCKS. Since it was red, I couldn't pass it up, and I knew I'd be able to make it wearable for me, since it sure wasn't in its current state/length.




Seriously friends... SHORT.

So I took a measurement from my natural waist (where, thankfully the seam line on the skater dress actually hit) to where I thought a peplum should fall. It was approximately 9 inches. I then laid out the dress sideways, made a mark about 9 inches down from the front and just went to town and cut a new hi/low hemline. It was $5. I figured I'd be adventurous.


I then laid it out flat and evened up my crazy cut lines before I turned up the edge twice and hemmed it. Simple!



Then I slapped that baby on with a belt and rocked it!
Not bad for $5.00!


C&C totes welcome!

I do wear them! My mother-in-law is an incredibly fashionable woman and she has often worn a fascinator or hat to church or dinner... being married to her son for 7 years has encouraged me to wear something with confidence  if I like it. Sometimes confidence and pride in what you're wearing is the best accessory!

I have long hair and I tend to put part of my hair up when I wear a fascinator... but my baby sister has a funky/angled short haircut, and they look equally great on her!

So, I thought I'd share a few of the fascinators I've created lately. A friend of mine is a real royal nut, and at her wedding last year, all of the ladies wore fascinators and/or hats. Since then I've become rather interested in these lovely little creations.















C&C welcome and appreciated!

Thanks! It's def. way more wearable now. Another clothing item rescued from the thrift rack! Smiley

I hope the tutorial does help. It's actually my philosophy that since I'm actually fairly craft-challenged (no, seriously - when I was in our youth group at church and we made Christmas ornaments for fundraising, my Mum used to go first thing to the sale to buy my 'special' ornaments before anyone else saw them. Not joking) that if I can do something, then pretty much ANYONE can do it.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Sci-fi/Fantasy fandom swap? on: April 09, 2013 12:04:52 PM
Most of my fantasy life is in book form, I don't own a TV. Would that be acceptable?

TOTALLY.

I mean, at the very least Harry Potter and LoTR is based in book form as well as later on in Movies. But, i'm ALWAYS interested in learning about new fantasy books that others have read. So, i would say that's completely acceptable.


What do people think about a time frame for this swap. I'm thinking I'd start sign-ups sometime in May and have the send-outs after about a month. So, maybe 2 weeks for signups (to mid may) and then a month for crafting, so send outs would be mid-June?

What do you think?

I think if we get enough people we could match up depending on fandoms, and it might be cool to craft for one fandom you know and one you don't! Of course, then I could get in trouble for introducing people to a whole bunch more new fandoms and then they'd get attached to those.... oh well.  Wink

Thanks everyone! Just wanted to share how I wore this top on Easter Sunday morning.

It's a great layering piece - I can see it getting a LOT of wear... and now I'm on the lookout for a fun cotton print to do it again. Smiley
