A couple of photos:

Pretty flowers outside the zoo


I think it's so important for families to have dinner together, don't you?


And even though I never never post photos of my family, I was proud of this one.  I did her hair, dressed her up, posed and photographed her, and digitally added the vignette effect.  She was all dressed up for a family outing.  She has a lovely personality, too!

2  Easy and Pretty finger food in Recipes and Cooking Tips by anwylaeth on: June 21, 2008 02:21:15 AM
For my sister's surprise birthday party, I put together some simple yet pretty party platters.  We actually had very little left over, and I heard happy munching comments, so it must have been pretty good Cheesy

I tried to put a little extra effort into making such simple fare attractive, by putting the fruit dip into grapefruit skins with scalloped edges, and veggie dip into hollowed-out bell peppers, and by having some really awesome and artistic helpers!  The sandwich roll-ups are ham with green onions and cream cheese, and the pinwheels are chicken salad with cream cheese and sun-dried tomatos.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and just wanted to show off my little table creations to you incredibly crafty and creative folk.  Thanks for checking it out!

3  Fruit Bouquet in Dessert by anwylaeth on: June 21, 2008 02:13:38 AM
For my sister's birthday surprise birthday party, I created a fruit bouquet.  I've seen ads for these lovely bouquets you can order, but they were price-prohibitive for this event, so I stumbled along and tried my hand at it myself.  She was pleased, anyway, and I think it turned out okay.  Thoughts?  Comments?

My goodies from Panda!

Look at the fabulous purse she made me!!!  I would include a pic of the inside of the purse, but the lovely "handmade by" label has her full name, which she may prefer not to plaster all over the internet.  Suffice to say it is so well put together, and she even made the handles removable so the purse can be easily washed.  I put it to use right away.  She also sent postcards from her area, and I had sent her postcards from mine.  She made me a lovely little jar, which is actually a (very very useful)  water bottle, plus she put together a teeny tiny little jar of beads, lace, and findings for each of my kids to make a keychain with.




And there's my son's finger, displaying the tiny wonderfulness of the two little pigs she included in his jar.

Everything together - buttons, charms, candy, tiny snakes and lizards, Easter erasers...so much!  I was especially excited about the round tape measure, since I've been wanting to try to make a felt tape measure cosy.  Thank you so much!!!

ETA - ewww!  My table looks terrible.  In my defense, this poor, ancient table has seen more glue, paint, and ModPodge than I can say.  Poor thing!

6  Vivarium - ridiculously wordy explanation as well in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by anwylaeth on: August 14, 2007 12:04:11 PM
I'm not sure this qualifies as a "craft" project, but I did make it, with some help from my DH and son, and it's decorative, so....



This is the vivarium before putting on the top and adding the little toad my neighbors brought me and four little guppies I had in another tank (my guppies are into free love and reproduction - I have tons of the little boogers).  We filled the water level just over the top of the small submersible water pump, which is housed inside a tupperware tub with holes punched to let water, but not debris, in to the pump.  We built a raised platform of "eggcrate", which is that plastic grid stuff they put over fluorescent light bars, then covered the platform with screen, to minimize debris falling into the water, then built up rocks along the edge of the platform and put soil (actually peat moss and "Bed a Beast") in the center of the platform, then planted the plant into that.  We directed the tube coming from the pump over the little log and onto some rocks, then added more river rocks to the bottom of the tank and sloping up to the "shoreline" of the platform.


And there's Toby the Tubby Toad checking out his new habitat.  I thought he might eat the fish, but they are happily coexisting.  Actually, I think he's scared of them.  He swims, hops, eats bugs out of our fingers (or any other darned way he can get them) - not a bad deal for a toad who was being manhandled by the neighborhood kids for a few hours before they brought him to me!

Comments most welcome - sorry so long

Here are some photos from a recent day trip:

Isn't he the cutest, sassiest, fattest little thing?





And our new kitten, because kittens are inherently photogenic:

Even though it appears he's embarrassed by the sorry state of my carpet, he's actually just taking a bath  Cheesy

More goodies!  Thirty-one bracelets all tagged and ready to be "lost"


(excuse my ugly old, needs-refinishing table in the background Wink )

I decided to put some more effort into the tags, so I'm doing this:



Here are a couple of my fave new bracelets (and a ring!)







That lovely silver one in the middle was made by my 14 year old son!
