11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Christmas gifts on: November 20, 2008 05:54:59 PM
The rush to finish all of my Christmas gifts has started. I thought I would share a couple of my necklaces I've made. I got the beads at a yard sale last year, and finally decided to use them. I liked the clear one so much I had to make one for me too. The pictures aren't the best, but atleast they are in focus.


12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / gryffindor scarf on: November 20, 2008 05:47:59 PM
This is my first knitted project ever. I am really proud of it. It's a Christmas gift for my best friend who loves Harry Potter. She has been wanting a gryffindor scarf since the first movie came out. I got the pattern from this website.

13  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / 2008 pumpkins on: October 29, 2008 10:27:00 PM
I finally carved this years pumpkins. I know it's nothing special compared to other pumpkins out there, but I am really proud of mine because it's the first pattern I've drew up myself. I added a little '42' toward the bottom later, but I didn't take another picture, because it didn't show up as well. It's my tribute to Douglas Adams. My daughter picked out/sorta drew on her more traditional face.
14  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Magic the gathering glasses on: September 23, 2008 09:26:45 AM
I made these for a friend of mine for Christmas. They are made from old glade candel glasses. I am really happy with how the manna symbols turned out (Yes, yes, I know...but white wasn't working so I had to use yellow.)

However I'm not happy with the glass etching. I think I should have used a bath instead of just painting it on, because It looks real splotchy, and the rims didn't take very well either. Do you think they are good enough to gift? They took a long time (especially the bottoms.) I don't want to redo them, but they look way to patchy to me. Am I just being overly critical, or should I just keep this set and try again?

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Panda necklace on: September 21, 2008 07:21:07 PM
I made this panda necklace for my niece who is in love with pandas. It's macrmaed from hemp, and I made the lampwork beads too. I took this picture before I cut off all the loose fuzzies from the hemp, I didn't realize they would be so noticeable in the picture. it looks better in real life, but I wanted to share it anyway. What do you think?

16  COOKING / Dessert / an edible birthday present with an edible gift inside on: July 29, 2008 01:21:13 PM
Today is my daughters 5th birthday, and I have tried my hand at making unique cakes for her in the past, but this years cake is my favorite. I'm sure someone must have done this already, but I've never heard of this being done so I'm very excited about it. I decided to make her a present cake; what says birthday like a neatly wrapped gift?

I used frosting with sprinkles so it looked more like wrapping paper. and I flattened/ streatched out air heads candy for the ribbon. I'm sure there is probably a better way to do this but I was limited by what I could find at the grocery store late last night (Yes, I am a terrible procrastinator). I flattened out a white air head, cut it up, and wrote on it with a toothpick and red food coloring to look like a gift tag.

But who wants an empty birthday present? So I cut a hole in the middle tier and hid a candy necklace inside the present-cake. it's under the gift tag, so I know which corner to give her.

I'm so excited about this idea. She has seen the cake and was excited that her cake looked like a present. I can't wait to se her reaction when she finds out there really is a little gift inside.
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Folk-art/4th of July dress on: July 05, 2008 07:32:44 PM
I wanted to make my daughter a dress for the fourth of july, but I didn't want it to look like she was wrapped in a flag. I found this fabric at walmart in the dollar bin, and thought it had a nice country/old-timey look to it. Unfortunately, after hand-sewing all the square together for the top, I realized that the cheap checkered fabric was a really low thread count and coming unravelled  Angry. Well, I had put too much time into it by this point to just quit, so I went back over them again, added some fabric glue, and sewed buttons on all the corners in an attempt to reinforce them. In my favor, I don't sew much, so I didn't think about quality of the fabric, but you live and you learn. Despite my poor choice in fabric, and ammeture sewing skill, I really like how it turned out. And more importantly, my daughter loves her new dress. What do you think?

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / V.I.P. Scarf (4 pics) on: May 06, 2008 11:50:03 AM
When my mom passed away, she was working on a blanket for my Grandmother. I took what she had done and assemblyed it into a throw for her couch with matching pillows. I had some flower squares left, and wanted to use it for something special. Inspired by taloola's blanket,
I decided to make a patchwork/crazy quilt kind of scarf. I asked my family/friends to contribute by making me a square for christmas. Many people learned to crochet just for me. It's four feet long, and I can always add more squares in the future.
I feel very special.
Very important people in my life contributed to this scarf. So without further adu, My VIP scarf!...

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need help making this dress. on: April 11, 2008 06:47:21 PM
A friend of mine recently gave me this fabric to make my daughter a dress...

I was totally excited about it, and at once had a general idea what I wanted it to look like. I thought a pattern in this basic shape would be easy to find, but I've searched the internet for hours and can't find a thing. If someone could direct me to a similar pattern (or even a good place to look), then I think I should be able to tweak it a little to get what I want. (I hope)

the top/ neckline isn't as important because I want to make a little fur caplet/ shawl type thing to go around the shoulders (that matches the fur trim), That I was able to find, but I can't find a pattern anything like this anywhere. Can anyone help me?  Cry

Oh yeah, I need a childs pattern Abt. size 4 or 5 Thanks!
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / TOOO many scrunchies!! *pic heavy* on: March 27, 2008 09:13:40 AM
A while back I went crazy crocheting hair scrunchies. No, really crazy! I couldn't even wear half of them. I have a small head, and my hair is so thin and straight, many of them overpower my hair. I have already given away about half of the ones I made, but I figured I'd post the ones I still have.
My favorite one is more like a doily than a hair tie.

more with beads
