1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Timmins the Tenacious Seahorse on: April 11, 2009 02:21:55 PM
A few days ago I was visiting family in another city. I love the little city, as it has the most amazing thrift store that sells things for pennies Wink So on my way home I dropped in and bought out all the bags of remnant fabrics for $1 per bag (8 bags with at least 4 FQs per bag). Today I decided to make myself a stuffed hedgehog, using a pattern that I drafted. I decided just to hand sew, as I didn't want to fight with the machine just to sew up one ikkle plushie. Anyways, forgetting that hand sewing makes things a wee bit different, my hedgie turned into a lovely seahorse! That is how Timmins was born Cheesy He is 5" high by 4.5" wide (at his widest parts). He has buttons for eyes and a bit of fibre as a hooked so I can hang him up with my dotees. Please let me know what you think Cheesy Thanks for looking!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Some Digital Layouts :) [Image Obesse!] on: January 15, 2009 09:33:27 PM
So about 2 years ago I discovered digital scrapbooking, and fell in love Smiley I love the ease of it and the fact that I can reuse those lovely papers over and over again Cheesy Another bonus is that hubby doesn't get upset at all the glitter, glue, punchies, tape bits, etc that take over the living room floor, haha. Here are a few of my favorite layouts, thank you for looking! Smiley *Sorry some of the images look a little wonky, they are smaller than normal, however if anyone wants, I can post the link to my Moo Two Designs Albums with full-sized images Smiley *

































3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Weight Loss Soup? on: January 09, 2009 04:51:06 PM
My specialist has ordered me to lose 50-70lbs in 3 months (I know it's unhealthy, and I couldn't possibly lose that much without ending up in the hospital). Anyways, I've decided that I need to drop some pounds and get healthier.

So, I am looking for ideas for soup that is healthy, hearty and will help me with my weight-loss goal. I love veggies of many varrieties, lean meat (such as bl/sl chicken breast, extra lean ground beef, etc), and any sort of soup base except cream. I love spice, heat, etc...however my hubby isn't too keen on heat.

The reason I ask for soup is that it's the easiest thing for us to make. We're on a very limited budget (ridiculously limited), and soup helps to spread the meal without loading up on junk (like breads and junk food that is overwhelming suring the holidays). A big pot of soup can feed us for 2-3 days, depending on what we put into it Smiley

We can't get truly exotic foods without blowing our budget, so basic ingredients would be greatly appreciated. I am diabetic, so I can' cut carbs totally (though I am geared towards only eating healthy ones). I also need to eat more than once a day, so something that I can make big batches of and freeze (thank you Grandpa for the deep freeze!).I am consulting a dietitian, so please don't worry about making any suggestions "diabetic-friendly" Smiley I can convert certain things if needed Wink

So, any and all suggestions are welcome! I'd really love to make use of our freezer, and make healthy yummy soups that I will enjoy and that my hubby won't turn his nose up at (although this is for myself more, he can survive on anything, the man has an iron stomach, lol!). Thanks so much!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Blue Bracelet & Earrings on: June 01, 2007 01:43:22 PM
Well, my little sister graduated last week, and as a gift for her I made the following items:





Any opinions (other than the pics aren't that good, lol...I snapped them in a rush, ha!). I've already had about 4 people ask me to make them a set, which is rather nice, lol.

Thanks for looking!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / A Few New Things on: October 14, 2006 02:29:11 PM
I've been a busy bee lately, and made a few new things that I wanted to share:

A Nestlace for my Mom, for her birthday:


It is quite small, a bit larger than a Canadian dime. The beads represent us 3 kids. It's on a suede cord, as she's very earthy that way Smiley

Some new style earrings I've been making - long and dangly, with natural stones and "crushed ice" glass seed beads:




And more that I will post after a certain someone receives, lol Cheesy So, please post comments! Thank you for looking Cheesy
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Microwaved CD Help on: October 14, 2006 12:30:57 PM
Well, last night I decided it was time I tried nuking a CD, and see what I could make of it. So, I did so, for 15 seconds. Cd was fine, however there is a terrible odor in the microwave now, and hubby is PO'd at me, lol. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it? We've cleaned several times, added a tray of baking soda, and now it's sitting outside because it smells so bad. It's an older micro, we know it needs replacing soon, but we'd prefer to hold onto it for just a while longer (until the funds are there to replace). Any help?
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Salt Dough Goodies on: September 10, 2006 12:44:54 AM
A few weeks ago hubby surprised me with 2 molds for clay. One of fruits and veggies, and one of cats, dogs and fish. So, tonight I figured I would give salt dough a try and this is what I made:

Dough and molds:


Fish:


The whole crowd:


Some Painted ones:


I still have to coat them in something to seal them. And I have added eye pins to each, so they can hang for pendants or add them to earrings. And I have a buttload of doug left in the fridge!

Thanks for looking!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New Earrings! on: September 07, 2006 11:07:31 PM
This past week I was suckered into babysitting for 4 days straight (meaning I was away from my computer, my craft stash, my hubby and my cats). So, I took along my newest beads (courtesy of my loving husband and mommy), and made the following earrings:



I scanned just one of each, since I couldn't get any decent photos and the scanner seems to try to crop each earring out of the whole image.

Anyways, all the beads are glass, except for the dice & Asian coins. Those are cute little dice beads I found, and painted gold (they were lime green first). The coins came from Ebay. The glass looking hearts are cats' eye (very pretty in person).

Any comments or crits? I will be selling some on my site and on ebay. I will also be making similar ones for the earring binge swap Cheesy Thanks for looking!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Tranquility Card on: August 03, 2006 02:25:57 PM
Hello all Smiley This is my first hand made card, and I admit that I am rather proud of it Cheesy



I used an image of a blue-ish waterfall, added a 3D Siamese cat (I created the 3D part of it in psp), a square of Asian paper, added a small Asian coin, and then coated the edges with gold leafing pen (Krylon).

Any comments are welcome Cheesy I haven't decided who to give it to, but I am thinking of framing it Wink
