Tristitia PMed that she received the M card I made so here it is in all it's beefcake-y glory.

M is for Movie Beefcake

It's also on the back-a collection of yummy words describing the  luscious Daniel Craig- star of Layercake, and of course the new James Bond. This pic was from a recent star rag that was comparing the buff Craig to the slightly non buff Pierce Bronson (whom I also adore) so I thought I'd have a bit of fun with a little Hollywood Exploitation  Wink Wink. Woman are judged on looks all the time-so to be equal.... The words are : Macho, Man, Meat, Movie

Here is the O card that Catpants received from me. O is for Old Fashioned

It's a old Gibson Girl Image that I gave a modern "makeover" to. Kind of a statement that looks can be deceiving  Wink

PS-the gold spot on her nose isn't a booger-it's supposed to be a nose ring-LOL Cheesy

Thanks Aeron for my fabric! I think there was like 30+ pieces of fabric in there-you really stuffed it in:) Here's what I got

an assortment of blues-I think these will be either a quillow or throw quilt:

next a bunch of novelty prints-great for my next quilt for my son Colin:)

next purples and pinks-love the floral-y paisley and pink check one:)

next two gorgeous oriental prints, one lil orientall piece that's perfect for an ATC, and two great hawaain prints that will either go into a hawaiian theme quilt I'm planning or make my DH some shorts-he loves hawaiian stuff:)

finally the last, but not least, pieces-I ADORE and need those mod, retro circle pieces as I love how they are being used but didn't own any until now  Wink Wink and I needed the colorful small print fabrics as well as I'm constantly going too big print on everything I make-the lime green is my favorite-it's glittery:)

I love everything and will certainly put it all to good use:)

I think it would be neat if we use any of the fabric we received to post a picture here of the finished object-what do ya  think?

I received my first ATC from my swap partner CharlieBrown today! She made my card based on my crafty likes....Fabric, learning to make fabric journals, sewing, and I collect vintage buttons:)-love these old Mother of Pearl ones:)

I love my card and I'm busy making myself a ATC binder to store them in.

Hopefully Lisa will receive my card soon so I can sign up for more swaps-what fun:)

Thank you Lisa-I love it:)

46  Mini Grim-Wendigo Thingie in Halloween Costumes by retro-redux on: November 01, 2006 03:39:05 PM
I made this costume for my 9 year old Colin. It's loosely based on several things:

a-the Grim Reaper
b-A Wendigo
c-A Witch Doctor

In the end I think it fit more of a Mini Grim Reaper than anything else.  It also bares a strange resemblance to the creature from the movie The Village.
It was received well at most Trick or Treating events but was given dirty looks and comments at a Chuch based "trunk or treat"-so while that pissed me off I guess you could say it showed the costumes effectiveness Cheesy Wink

Thanks for looking:)

47  Re: Men's Ties / Neckties in What the heck can I do with THIS? by retro-redux on: June 22, 2006 07:51:50 PM
this is my first post here:)
Your tie posts were so great I brain stormed and came up with this collar cover for my dog Zooey.
No sewing required-too lazy right now:). What I did was, cut off the narrow part of the tie-I didn't measure, just cut it off before it was getting wider.

 Zooey's collar is just a clip buckle dollar tree one-just feed the collar through the tie, using the prong end was easier.
It's like feeding elastic through a casing.

 After you get it through just tuck the raw ends under-or you could fabric glue them down before you slip the collar in.

 It's supposed to look scrunchy-the tie piece will be much longer than the collar. I've seen similar things at the pet store for like five bucks.

 You could makes several of these for a whole dog wardrobe.

Zooey is a large dog(50 lbs) but I'm sure it would work on a small dog though it would be more poofy.
