1  Edible Christmas trees - photo intense in Dessert by daisyannissa on: December 14, 2007 11:49:31 PM
I saw something like this in Martha Stewart's magazine and since her recipes don't usually work out for me, I adapted it and made my own!

They are waffle ice cream cones with chocolate cake baked inside. We decided to go with a white-ish color (added vanilla which makes it slightly yellow) but you could just as easily add in some green or any other food coloring. We finished them off with powdered sugar and sprinkles in the shape of snowflakes.


My 10-year-old sister loved decorating them.


With a 3 1/2 inch Santa!

These were so much fun to make! Let me know if any of you are interested in seeing the recipe and I'll type it up with my variations, too. They'd also be fantastic with a thin layer of icing and white chocolate chips!

Had it out every year for as long as I can remember...

Mantle:

The mantle has changing lights, and they're all the same color at the same time, they're great!

3  Recon- from skirt to toddler dress! (photos) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by daisyannissa on: June 04, 2007 04:53:56 PM
I found this great skirt at a garage sale for $.50, but didn't know what to do with it- until I held it up to my younger sister and saw that it was the perfect length to be a full-length dress for her!

It had this pleating on it that worked very well with the natural shape of a dress, which made shaping really easy. It also had an invisible zipper in the back, so I simply centered the dress by that and used the leftover  fabric to make straps.

Before:


After (I had a hard time getting a good full-length shot, sorry!):






She loves wearing it!

4  Some things I made! (image hefty) in Mother's Day by daisyannissa on: June 03, 2007 01:33:17 AM
Hey everyone! Thanks to all of your great suggestions I made a lot of wonderful (although I do have a bit of a bias) crafty things for Mother's Day!

I made a miniature meal, with fruit kabobs on toothpicks, all from scratch burgers, a mini-quiche and a mini-pizza:


A link to the thread with a miniature version of my family:

And then I shot and edited a DVD montage-thing and wrapped it with white newsprint that I stamped balloons and adorable pigs onto, with a fabric flower:

5  Miniature version of my family (pictures!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by daisyannissa on: June 03, 2007 01:27:24 AM
So this was a Mother's Day present for my mom (it took me forever to post)- I made miniature versions of the members of my family, with a couple of the shirts inspired by this tutorial:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165311.0

I covered a box with decorative paper and then knitted a comforter and sewed teeny pillows for the bed, the chair was made by cutting a styrofoam cup in half horizontally and then taping the larger half to the bottom.

It's not really visible in the pictures, but there's also a demim rug that I used bleach on to add a lighter color in a square in the center, and the floor is textured brown paper meant to look like wood flooring. This is all set in a lovely shoe box, that already had that great circular pattern (thank you Target)!








Thank you all for the inspiration!

6  Blue baby dress (2 pictures!) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by daisyannissa on: May 10, 2007 06:21:12 PM
I made this dress for my sister from a pattern, if anyone would like it I'd be happy to go and check what it is, but at the moment I'm *way* too lazy to go look.

Anyway, it fits her pretty well and was my first piece of clothing and first time I used a pattern!

Unfortunately the cute pictures I took crashed along with my computer (argh!), but here are a couple new ones:

7  Re: dress styles? in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by daisyannissa on: February 11, 2007 04:42:15 PM
I would recommend a wrap dress! I'm not sure if it's your style, but it is extremely flattering.



Depending on what weather you want to wear it in and how you feel about your legs/arms, you can make it a long sleeve (possibly bell if you're concerned about your upper arms) or do a 3/4 and push up the sleeves, like in the picture. As for the length, I have rather stubby legs so I like to wear mine right below my knees.

Wrap dresses can look really cute and retro if you get the right fabric, and they're definitely flattering for your body type. Let me know what you think!

8  Re: Great, Quick (but possibly messy), last minute Chocolate Cherry Gift Mice in Winter Holidays by daisyannissa on: December 12, 2006 11:27:44 PM
I thought these were extraordinarily adorable, so I bought some cherries and kisses and got started!

The only problem was that I thought I had sliced almonds in the house, but as it turned out all I had was slivered, making my mice look a little more like cutesy rabbits...


The appropriately Christmas-colored kisses.


So far, so good.


Two rows done.


FINISHED!

Overall, I think it was pretty dang awesome. They're still setting, meaning I have yet to try them, but they look delicious. It was time consuming, but well worth it. Then again I'm not very used to crafts like these (unlike most of you here), so it probably took me a bit longer.

Thank you for the tutorial!
