82  pet shrines in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by noelle on: December 19, 2004 08:29:53 AM
my dear best friend lost 3 pets in the last year. and her 18-yr old kitty just suffered a heart attack. so along with her christmas/solstice presents i decided to include some pet shrines.

i mod-podged paper over some altoids tins and inside the lids.
then hot-glued some tea-lights, crystals, and a card stating each crystal's metaphysical properties.
finally, i put a little felt creature up on the lid to represent the passed animal.

i wasn't really sure what all to do, so i left space for her to write or add things to the shrine.
what have others put in their pet shrines? i haven't seen too many examples..

83  all the bells & whistles! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: December 04, 2004 09:06:41 AM
just finished my first proper purse! it's a christmas present for a friend of mine, who needs something less serious to carry all her stuff around.

big surprise! it's a jordy bag.  Grin
with a lining, and a pocket, and a snap to keep it closed, and Sublime Stitching embroidery, and sequins too!!
there was supposed to be more.. more sequins or beaded fringe, or something. but alas the seams aren't quite in the right place for that.

oh, i also added a little cardboard inset in the bottom to help keep it's shape. i glued some extra fabric over it and then glued it to the lining.

it's a safety man shirt for the bf. something like the following:

okay, but without the words.
anyone know of some extra spiffy safety man pics?
is this a silly idea?

86  quilting notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: November 22, 2004 06:59:01 AM
i'm almost finished with this book (a christmas gift for my mom)..

this is a coptic bound book made with her old scrubs (she's a nurse) and fabric glue.
all four embroideries are from Sublime Stitching's Craftopia patterns.

i added a snap to keep the book closed, a fabric bookmark, and pockets for a calculator & pencils & scissors.

i can't decide whether to cover the spine or not.. just to make it look neater.

i had to make a few of these over the weekend. hoorah!
my first:

and i found out that it's much easier to get the spine nice & tight if you press the pages *before* binding them.

xmas present for my sister (shh.. be very, very quiet) & one for my mom.
the last book was embroidered with a Sublime Stitching pattern, and was made with fabric instead of paper.

88  Princess Kit in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by noelle on: November 13, 2004 12:22:25 PM
i made a "princess kit" for my best friend's birthday this spring..
i love how a collection of random objects can become a gift when you package it right!

i included:

a little colored instruction book  page 1 page 2 page 3-4 page 5-6 page7-8 page 9

a necklace beaded from Robyn's pattern
a decorated mask

a toy frog & lipgloss (for kissing, of course!)
girly pom-pom socks, some chocolate & a box of kleenex (for snotty princesses)

a princess remote, designed to command servants to do her every bidding
a few teeny soldier toys (knights in shining armor)
a little black book, with phone numbers like David Duchovny's (1-800-HOT-BUNS)

i almost tried my hand at cake carving for my boyfriend's birthday last year, but then chickened out when i saw a pan close to what i wanted.

ahh, my messy mini cooper..
more pictures can be seen on this thread.

so, norsgoebel- do you homemake your cakes? i am lazy and usually go the Duncan Hines route..  Wink

90  cake decorating - come share!! in Dessert by noelle on: November 12, 2004 04:14:14 PM
hey, folksies.  Smiley
just wanted to share some of my confectionary artwork.

these are my wilton class cakes.. oh, my teacher was soo disappointed i wouldn't use the white picket fence like in the book.. and the plain yellow butterfly..

the swing image was freehanded from some clipart.
i used a transparency to trace a web photo of the monarch, then covered the transparency with wax paper and piped/toothpicked royal icing right over it.

and these are some cookies i freehanded.
with just a toothpick. really. that's it.
because i have to do everything the hard way.  Roll Eyes

though i must credit the original art to Mary Engelbreit, Cicely Mary Barker, and Rosemary Wells.
