1  COOKING / Dessert / HEY! There's a cat in my cupcake! on: January 13, 2009 05:42:34 PM
This weekend I made 20 of these cat cupcakes based off of the Japanese cat character Nyanko. Nyanko is a cat who is always disguised as something else (especially food).



There were two flavors.

red velvet with cream cheese frosting:



and vegan coconut cupcakes with coconut almond frosting:



I made the heads, tails and paws out of marzipan.




I had a lot of fun making these! Hope you like them!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Little animal inchies on: February 10, 2008 11:02:15 AM
I made these inchies for the inchie swap that is just finishing up. I was inspired to make all my inchies little cute animals after I read the latest issue of "Art & Life" magazine that has Teesha Moore's trip to Tokyo in it. All of the stickers and such in her journal were so cute!
I like the way they turned out and had a lot of fun making them. Thought I would share the whole group together.
I just painted with my acrylic paints on collaged chipboard.


3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Wings- The kind from when I was little on: March 07, 2007 11:28:17 AM
Like most kids I grew up on my mom's music. Luckily I didn't really mind my mom's music. I kinda liked it (except for what she listens to now- country  Tongue) One of the bands we listened to alot was "Wings." My mom's favorite Beatle was Paul and the love story between Paul and Linda appealed to my whole divorced parent thing I had going on in when I was little. So I made my cards based on the titles of some of those Wings songs.

Here is the 1st:

"Silly Love Songs"

and "My Love"

and my favorite to sing when I was little, "Let 'em In." This one has a door that swings open and shut so you can let them in.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / As Long as my Heart Beats on: February 05, 2007 03:51:15 PM
Here is my entry. It was one of those projects where once I thought of it I couldn't stop thinking about it until I made it. The whole thing is done on magenta felt that I hand beaded.


My husband has claimed this one (as it is about my eternal love for him).

Details of swap:Remember elementary school when you could count on getting at least one valentine? It isn't always so easy these days to ensure you'll get a valentine card, huh? This swap will ensure that you get at least 3 Valentine cards this year! Each swap participant will craft three Valentine ATCs. You will have one week from the end of the sign-ups to craft and send your cards. You will send one card to each of the other members in your group. If there aren't enough people for even groups we'll just trade individually. I just know that there will be no flakers because that would be heartbreaking to flake on someone's Valentine card, right? RIGHT?!!??

WHAT IS AN ATC? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136601.0

ATC's are so small that they can't have a DC# and are cheap to send internationally. Please be prepared to send internationally. If your card isn't received by Feb. 14 you MUST RESEND or you will be given negative feedback.


Groups will be drawn on Jan. 25. I'll send out messages that afternoon with your groups address info.

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Clown Fishin' Around on: December 28, 2006 06:13:57 PM
Ok. Here is my entry. Clowns? They are kinda weird. Too happy all the time. But I love the little clown fish! So here is my Clown Fishin' Around Card.


Much less freaky.
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / The Sorrows of Steve Zissou- A Life Aquatic ATC set on: December 27, 2006 07:17:44 PM
First off- these were a Christmas present. I didn't make them, but my husband did! I was always whining that no one ever picks Wes Anderson movies as a theme on my list for ongoing ATC swaps. I personally would love to make a card from his movies! So for Christmas my husband made me a set from my favorite Wes Anderson movie, "The Life Aquatic"


It is the only ATC that has made me get a little teary when I opened it. The first card says "I would have named you Kingsley." The second one says "Esteban was eaten!" and the third says "Oh no! We forgot Cody!" The line along the bottom is from the Zombie song "The Way I Feel Inside" that plays during Ned's funeral. Aren't they the greatest?
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / my dinner at the delicutessen on: December 09, 2006 02:37:33 PM
So, I was walking around last night in my city when I spotted the tiniest, cutest little restaraunt. It was called "The Delicutessen." My waitress was a very proper Emperor Penguin. He welcomed me to the worlds cutest restaraunt, brought me a menu and asked me what I would like to start with. I looked over the menu and decided to start with a small garden saladmander with dressing on the side. It was very cute. Here is a picture:
Cheesy Cheesy



I had a tough time deciding between two of the dishes for my main course- so I got them both! I ordered the personal muttloaf and an order of Spughetti (If I couldn't eat it all I could always just take it home in a doggy bag, right?)




But luckily I had saved enough room for dessert- a coupla doenuts and a small milksnake.


If you are ever in my neighborhood I would highly recommend this place. It was so cute! Wink
