Great fabric!!! Love 'Jack'! Tongue Tongue Nice job!!!

Thank you!  I have some plans for some other images of "Jack" from my yardage - stay tuned!   Wink

PS Your adding one of my construction workers to your wist is what inspired me to make them for my etsy.  I made a bunch for my first craft faire last weekend and sold out! 

Those are awesome! Where is that fabric from?  I need to make something out of it for my boys.....

It's Alexander Henry fabric and it's called "Outdoorsy Type" the date on it is 2007.

I thought it was made of pebbles from the thumbnail (I have a planter made from pebbles molded in some kind of binder), but I agree that birdseed is awesome!  I bet you could use suet instead of glue, chill it thoroughly in the mould, and have an edible version. I have a brain mould that I might use to try this.  If only it wouldn't be a troupe of the sinister local squirrels that would get it instead of the birds.  Sigh.

I didn't think I would post more beef cake pot holders, but then I went and found a new-to-me print!  Dang it!  I simply HAD to make 'em and then, of course, I had to share 'em.

I've started naming the fellas, since we spend so much time together.






Thanks for taking a gander!

Really, really thoughtful and lovely!  Not at all over-done, which is nice as it let your mom and her guests be the stars of the show with a great backdrop.  I'll be celebrating my 40 in a few years and my have to use some of your ideas myself!  (Yes, I believe in throwing my own party)  Wink

Those are really fantastic!  I love everything about them, actually!  Are you going to display them together?  Give them as gifts?
4088  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Decoupage Plates -- Quite a few pics on: November 13, 2008 07:26:31 AM
So cute!  I hadn't even thought to look at Freddy's for the plates, etc.  Do you feel like you got a good deal for them?  I want to do something similar to give away with treats on at the holidays, but I want to use resin to coat the backs and have had a heck of a time finding thorough help with that.  Any advice out there?

Yep, they were buy 2, get one free. I think the entire craft aisle was 20-30% off so I got some seed beads and a spray can of lacquer stuff. 

The only plate tutorials I've found have been decoupage or this lazertran stuff. That would be cool of you could get resin on there but could you really eat off them?  *dreams of the possibilities resin and plates could produce*

Well, I missed that sale!  Dang.

Well, the resin goes on the back of the plate, so I would think you could eat off of them or at least serve off of them.  I'm thinking along the lines of John Derian's stuff, not the stuff at Target, but his high-end things.  I knew someone who had a pair of his martini glasses and I'm pretty sure they were resin over the decoupage (but in that case on the outside of the glass).  So pretty!
4089  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help! How do I paint this thing to last? on: November 11, 2008 09:36:51 PM
I agree with the cleaning, sanding, priming, painting, and I second the varnishing.  White paint + tomato sauce, kool-ade, wine = stain.  Also the glossier your paint (for water-based) generally the more durable, but if you don't want shine use a dull varnish or a very find steel wool to dull the final coat of a shiny varnish.

I love the idea of ATCs, but have only made one (which I gave away as part of another swap) and would like to make more, so this thread is really interesting to me.  My question is: Is it an Artist Trading Card if you don't trade it?
