smashu, sorry to hear about your job. That really stinks! You did an EXCELLENT job on the costumes, though!!!

underthemountain, the banner and crown are really cute!

My IYP swap package was received last week, so here's what I sent to WhimsicallyObsessed

A stencilled Lalaloopsy shirt for her daughter


A fox and turtle amigurumi




And a pillow cover

Wow, some great items here as usual.

Love the banner and all of the birthday stuff underthemountain. Banners are so cool to me. Smiley And add in a headband? That will be one styling girl.

SmashU,  your costumes are incredible once more. Sorry about the suckage once you got home though.  Sad

Knowing very little about your field, would it be possible to work for a company that is not craft related? Don't most large companies, ie: IBM, Apple, have inhouse art departments?  Sorry, I really don't know much about it.

indgo_roses, aw, much love for the stenciled tshirt and the turtle.

Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

I am going to use my 70″ dark wood bookcases as a pantry in the new kitchen.  We have a very ugly but very effective sort of white upright freezer that is 65″ tall and I will be placing a bookcase on each side with its back to the side of the freezer so that they take up less wall space but are still usable.
The side that faces the door from the front room will be used for canisters and bottles and the other side will be for cans.  I want to be able to use my cupboards to spread out my dishes and cooking gear better.
Because of my weightloss surgery I use quite a bit of protein which I buy in large white plastic canisters.  It is hard to get the labors completely off of the bottles and my theme for the pantry is apothecary style.

So I found this very old fashion white and black self stick shelf liner at the dollar store which I cut to size and wrapped around the canister

then I printed off some apothecary labels then taped them on.

Now if I wish to change the contents I can put a new label over that one.  


I am also painting about 25 bottles of all sizes using this method which works

the first batch I did I used non acetone and it ended up ok but spotty, the second batch I got the right polish and made the paints thicker and even though I have streaks and patterns (which I find cool) they are a lot darker and richer color

Pictures coming soon

I think the stuff made for the IYP is fantastic!  Everyone did such a bang up job...and why is it that in that swap, we make so much stuff!? Cheesy  It always tires me out!

Underthemountain and indigo_roses--loved the goodies you made!  I really love the bee crown, the fun masks...and Indigo_roses--the cushion cover was my favorite...well, maybe the fox...

Smashu--sucky news!  It must be difficult to work in the arts...your design work and costumes are so terrific...

trina--what a clever idea for containers that will be seen...I also have huge containers of protein powders...I never thought about covering them...they sit out on a shelf because they are too huge for my cupboards--I like your idea!

katara--love the bird notecards...I always need notecards!

kookla--what are you making with all of your cool TM patches?  I love the corset one!

lovely projects as usual ladies  Grin well done everybody for crafting through the summer heat (or torrential rain or winter heat depending where you live  Wink )

My TM patches will be turning up on all sorts of things but the ones I posted were swaps. I love the corset one and the beaded tree best of all  Smiley

Finished my second doll today.


This is Sleepy Jean as the day I made her head I woke up with The Monkees Daydream Believer in my head  Grin
 Her torso & arms are made from a skirt.Her skirt and waistcoat are leftover saree pieces with some ribbon sewn on and her lovely orange legs are made from one of my dresses that I cut up for fabric  Cheesy shoes are just two different ribbons tacked in place.They're very bright irl  Grin

You are going to get me hooked on making dolls...I love that her torso and arms look like tattoos or henna!  Is that a tiny ladybug on her hand?

The shoes are genius!

Yes indeed  Smiley the little ladybird was part of some giftwrap and I knew it would come in handy for something one day  Wink
the shoes were necessary to hide the ugly job I made of making her feet, poor girl not only does she have huge hands but deformed toes too  Roll Eyes

Kookaloo_Starr, Sleepy Jean turned out so cute!  I love the designs all over her body!  So pretty!

trinalocakary, clever use of contact paper!  Looks really nice!

indigo_roses, great stenciling work!  Those amis are so adorable, I'm especially in love with the fox.  And that pillow is SO CUTE!!!

underthemountain, that crown is amazing!!!  Just so pretty!!  The bunting garland is awesome, and look at all the beautiful jewelry!  I want like every single piece of it!!!

smashu, you are so amazing in making those costumes!  I'm so sorry to hear about your job!  That is such a crappy thing to do to you while you are out of town!  I cannot believe that!

katara, oooo I like the notecards!  I love birdies!

I am so far behind, everyone's been so busy!
I love Sleepy Jean!
And, that sucks what they did to you, smashu. I hope something better comes your way.
