1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Brown and Blue Shower with Dessert Buffet **pic obese** on: July 26, 2011 06:55:39 AM
I threw a shower for my minister/surrogate daughter in May.  Cameron Wesley finally made his appearance on July 12, a full week after he was due to arrive; apparently he was pretty comfy in mama's belly  Smiley

Being a craftster, and not caring for mass produced baby shower invites, I made my own

I sewed the umbrella onto the cardstock and then wrote on it.


In hindsight, the rainy paper made it a little difficult to read, I should have used the cloudy sky paper...


I made a bunting (my first) that spelled Cameron, I figured they could hang it in his bedroom later.  However, it turned out ALOT bigger than I imagined, so I'm not sure where they put it when they got it home...

Laura has a real sweet tooth, so for refreshments, I went with a dessert buffet

We also had peanuts, and cheese & crackers to offset all the sweet.


Diaper cake


Sock rose bouquet


Burp rags


Onesies, the first is a nod to his gamer parents, the second is for his mama's favorite team the- Steelers


More onesies


My favorite, biohazard on the butt


Crayon C-- I used the ones with the coolest names on the widest part


The strip quilt I made her.

Thanks for looking  Grin

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Shut the front door! My QR code cross stitch on: June 05, 2011 02:18:34 PM
I love cross stitch, but I've got a very short attention span/interest level.  So small projects make me very happy.  I found this design on Subversive Cross Stitch and fell in love!



For those of y'all without a barcode scanner, it says 'shut the &#%@ up'

I can't decide if I want to put it on my wall, or make a patch out of it and put on my bookbag.  Maybe I'll make another, to remove the decision dilemma.

Details of swap:   (bits of details blatantly plagarized from http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263371.0)
Scraps, scraps, everywhere scrap scraps!  Ticker tape and bottled rainbow quilts are all the rage right now, but most of us don’t have enough of the “right” scraps on hand. Or maybe you like small bits of fabric for embellishments or accessories.  Although I’m not a stranger to buying LOADS of 1/8 yard bits, wouldn’t it be nice to swap with another craftster?  Whatever you need scraps for, this is the swap for you.  

We all have scraps left over from projects, too good to throw away, but too small/wrong color/etc to use for ourselves.  So why not pass them on to someone who would love them, all the while getting your own new loveys?

I will do my best to match people up according to what they have to offer and what they would like to receive.

Here are the guidelines:
1. You will be using either a large envelope (10x13) or the 9½ X 12½ flat-rate $4.95  USPS (or comparable) envelope.
2. You can include as much fabric as you can fit in that receptacle, as long as each piece is at least 2x2 (if you want a bigger size, you can ask your partner, and as long as you both agree and let me-hockamama-know, it is all good)
3. We will only have 1 week after partners are assigned to mail, since there is no crafting involved. If that is a problem, please let your partner and myself know IMMEDIATELY.
4. HAVE FUN!!!!



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Boombox Macbook Cover on: January 31, 2011 09:09:58 AM
My daughter turned 23 Wednesday, that really makes me feel old!  She fancies herself a child of the '80's, even though she can't possibly remember them, having been born at the tail end of the decade.

I had been entertaining the idea of making her a cover/case for her new Macbook, but I was struggling with the right inspiration.  Then I saw a costume accessory somewhere on the web that gave me the push I needed.



I thought about making it out of felt, but I was afraid it wouldn't hold up well, so I used fleece instead.  I used fusible fleece on both the lining and the shell, for added padding.  Prince is playing on the tape deck, which I covered with a piece of vinyl to look like the door.  Poor Prince is crooked, though Roll Eyes


I was originally going to make handles, but the more I thought about it, I decided that an adjustable strap would be more in keeping with a boombox.


The lining-what self respecting hippie can be without peace signs?


Perfect fit!!  (after a couple of adjustments and an add-on, of course  Tongue)
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Betty the Ballerina Monster on: January 31, 2011 08:46:32 AM
I went to a baby shower this weekend, and I wanted to give the big sis a little something.  So, I decided to make her an Ugly-inspired doll.


Here she is wearing her little tutu


Flaunting her heart tattoo


Her mishmash hair

I had so much fun making this little gal, I think I'll make a bunch of them to keep!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Super Awesome Rock Star Hooded Towel for Baby Shower on: January 31, 2011 08:40:58 AM

I made this for baby Rush, whose shower was this weekend.  I used a bath towel, and a hand towel, and trimmed it with the coolest guitar print that I found at Walmart.



Then I made a drawstring bag from the guitar print to present it in.


This was my first attempt at a hooded towel, and it was well received, so it may become my baby shower go-to gift.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Gallery: Valentine's Classroom Card Exchange...Round 2 on: January 25, 2011 06:36:18 PM
Welcome to the Gallery!  Below is a list of all the swappers and who you are sending to and receiving from.

In the previous round, we kept track of whom we had received from, and I'd like to do that again.  It makes it easier to know if anyone needs to resend.  So, please do this:

1. Select and copy your name and list of partners
2. reply into this thread, and paste your list there
3. As you receive your cards, you can modify your post, perhaps by changing the color of your partners name that you receive from

In this way we could keep track of all the cards received.

9  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Valentine's Classroom Card Exchange...Round 2 (signup Jan 9-16 sendout feb 4/11) on: January 09, 2011 01:34:08 PM
Since we have our first sender, I started a gallery  Wink
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371165.0






Welcome to Round 2 of the Valentine's Classroom Card Exchange!  This swap is for you to express your artistic talents via Valentine Cards.  

Here is the original discussion thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368739.0
And the first round thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284973.0

Directly plagarized from round 1--->This will be a swap in which everyone makes one card for everyone else in the swap, just like in elementary school where you brought in a card for everyone in the class.  The maximum number of swappers will be 24.

You may specify a maximum number of cards to send that is less than 24 and I promise I will do my best to match you up with that number of partners, but I cannot guarantee that I will be able to match you up with that exact number!

Since you can't get a DC number for regular envelopes, feedback will be based on if your partners recieved or not. If your card(s) is/are not received after two weeks you will need to send another one to avoid negative feedback.

Remember, you may be required to make and send more cards if any that you send are lost in the mail.

You can make whatever kinds of cards you are inspired to make, as plain or as fancy as you'd like.  You can make them production-line style.  The only rule is to make something that you would like to receive!  Any materials are acceptable although I expect papercrafts might rule this swap.  No stalking required.  Whatever style you like to make is fine - jokes, doily-victorian, sappy, corny, goofy, fun, dark, anatomical, creepy-cute, whatever makes your heart beat faster!

Swap name:  Valentine's Classroom Card Exchange...Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:   Hockamama

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES

Remember, you may be required to make and send more cards if your items are lost in the mail.

A requirement of this swap is that you MUST pm me the date that you mailed your cards!  Please mail them all on the SAME day because it will be very hard for me to keep track of multiple swappers sending multiple cards on multiple days!
