1  Re: rainbow cheesecake...now with two attempts! updated 15Mar08 in Dessert by nero_fiore on: October 08, 2011 02:43:09 PM
I love this cheesecake! I've made it twice now and it's a huge hit. I recently used it for an assignment in my advanced lighting class. I thought you'd appreciate it. Smiley

2  Presents for my new niece (Image & Project OBESE!!!) in Completed Projects by nero_fiore on: April 02, 2009 07:40:03 PM
So, I finally became a member of the Auntie club in my family. I have the two oldest grandchildren, so all my siblings got to enjoy aunt-hood and uncle-hood before my husband and I ever did. But that came to an end when my sister had a baby girl (YAY baby girls!!!). She was born February 20th and I've finally completed all the items I wanted to make for her (that is, until she's sitting up and I make a high chair/shopping cart cover).

For our family baby shower, I provided the dessert inspired from the book, Hello Cupcake!:

I can't remember the name of the font, but they were made with white chocolate and white nonpareils


Hello little lady bug


Mmmm....oreos

I also made her a little diaper cake:



It's wrapped with pink and purple pre-fold diapers (best burp clothes ever) and adorned with little sock roses


Spoon accents


And topped with a darling pink giraffe wearing ballet slippers

She wanted a diaper bag that her husband would feel comfortable carrying, so this is what I made:

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the inside, but there are a total of 4 pockets, spanning the length of the bag on each side (2 per side) a front pocket under the flap and two outside side pockets.

I had a bunch of material left over of the bag lining, so I made her a nursing cover. Hey look! Baby Dassa is there, under the cover!!!

She's just modeling, not actually feeding Smiley

The last item I made her was my favorite by far:

Dassa likes it!!!


I loved these so much that I made myself one as well


Ben loves it too!
I am in the process of making quite a few more of these to send with my mother-in-law to Haiti. She's a missionary and I figure these would be great for the women of Haiti. They are going to teach in an orphanage, add an addition to the orphanage and help out at a medical clinic that people start waiting in line at 2am for medical attention. I know it's not much, but I know it'll help at least a few women out...and that's good enough for me.

And of course, I didn't make this, but it's only fair to see the baby that inspired all these creations!

4  I need help shortening my dress please!-Sorry posted twice in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by nero_fiore on: April 22, 2008 08:43:32 PM
Okay, so I made this empire waist dress that I'm really proud of. I didn't use a pattern, just sort of figured things out as I went along...mainly because all maternity patterns seem to be quite matronly. That being said, I did cut the top portion a little too short (for my tastes [read: boobies]) and I made the skirt a bit too long (again, for my tastes [read: my short ass]).

Here's a crappy camera phone shot of the dress:



...it's really a lot cuter on. The bulky part right under the bust are ties that wrap around front and tie in back, thus accentuating my baby belly. It's not bulky when it's on me. I plan on doing a french cuff on the sleeves using the flowered fabric.

Here's where my dilemma lies, I'd rather shorten it from the waistline rather than the hem. I tried messing with it today, but I guess I'm just not that talented to figure out how to do it from there. I can take out the seam, though I did already trim it, so there's not much fabric on the top to resew. Do I just need to resew the seam or is there some super awesome trick way to take up the hem from the waist that I don't know about?

Any help would be great! Thanks!

7  Crafting supplies become wall art!!! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by nero_fiore on: December 26, 2007 08:24:24 PM
I found this great tutorial for foamboard wall art:

http://belladia.typepad.com/bella_dia/2006/08/fabric_panels.html

I love the idea, but didn't want to spend anymore money after going a little overboard with Christmas presents. My mother-in-law gave me a basketfull of different sized embroidery hoops, so I decided to get crafty with them and some scrap fabric that matches the pink/orange/red color scheme I'm trying to incorporate into my craft room. I'm tickled with how it came out!!!

9  Vintage Suitcases-What should I do?!?! in What the heck can I do with THIS? by nero_fiore on: December 09, 2007 01:03:41 PM
I found these three suitcases at a yard sale for $10. I'm really wanting to do something special with them. I know I'm going to need to do a major rehab on all three. I'm trying to decide whether I should keep to the original style or do something fun with them. Any advice?

Case 1:



Case 2:



Case 3:



(I love the luggage label!!!)

10  My son the monster/dinosaur/dragon/lizard thing (pic heavy) in Halloween Costumes by nero_fiore on: November 06, 2007 05:11:26 PM
First my son wanted to be a monster, then a dinosaur, then a dragon...so this is what I came up with.







Each one of those hundred or so spots were hand-sewn on. That's why I didn't make a costume for myself....though I contemplated it late night on the 30th!!!

Our pumpkins


I should've taken a daylight photo of this one because the pumpkin was white!!!


And my son's trick or treat bag (It was a crafty season)
