The pictures are from rubber stamps that I bought from an online store www.thegreetingfarm .com
They have a bunch of different variations of those girls and guys (named Anya and Ian).

Here's the dress pattern I said I would post. I call it The Cake dress.

Got my Package from wwrich. It's so awesome. I love everything so much!!



There was so much stuff. A locker, dinner booth, food and cereal boxes. They even have mazes on the back. And the best a Deuce Gorgon doll. My daughter was so excited and loves everything. She couldn't wait to show daddy everything and her and my son have been playing Monster High all evening. I stole the monster high diary for myself, it's just too cute and I love the rainbow cake, I wish it were real. And the trampoline is stretchy and actually works to an extent. Everything is so great. Thank you so much wwrich.

Hurray!  I am so relieved that it finally made it there!  I was beginning to worry that it got lost along the way.

I tried to send things with a "theme", but ended up with lots of other "little stuff" that I couldn't make fit (but I sent it anyway).

I am at work, so I can't post my pictures, but I will try to do that later (but it probably won't be tonight because I probably won't get home until after 10).

My goal was to send my partner a "die-ner".  The "large" there was the booth table and benches.  Those were made with foam core, wood, glue, some stuffing and duct-tape.  The table is a stainless steel tile from the hardware store.  I made the table so the legs could be removed for easy storage. 

What restaurant would be complete without food?  So I made some little cakes, some ice-scream, some steaks, and some snack boxes.  The cakes were made from that craft foam stuff and puffy paints.  I found the cakes (and a lot of the other ideas) on "MyFroggyStuff" on UTube.  I usually do something a bit different than she does -- I used a hole punch to cut the cakes out, where she used scissors.  I think the punch gave me more uniform circles.  The paint that I used to frost the cakes made me think of ice-cream -- I just needed a container to put it in!  The "ice-screams" are just beads and some more puff paint.  I did jewelery using those same beads a while ago -- I got that idea from the Fire Mountain Gems website.  I just skipped the last 3 beads and the loop at the top, and filled the glass with paint.  The steaks were pictures I found on the internet, printed, covered with packing tape then glued to craft foam.  The snacks boxes I drew a while ago. I filled a couple of them with little tiny punched out craft foam -- it was something to do with the scraps leftover from the cakes! 

I had actually started some pies too, but they didn't get quite finished.  There was also a food serving thing and a chalkboard sign in the plan, but I ran out of time and box space!  DD and I spent a couple of car trips deciding on monstery names for some of the foods (which was going to go on the chalkboard).  We figured that the blue cake was "ice flavor".  We also did a green one that was "slime", and one of the pies was "ogre eyeball".  I'm sure that you and your daughter can do the same.

I had a couple of other things that I just had to share, even though they didn't fit into the "restaurant" theme...

I found these cool metal tins at a local Walgreen's around Halloween.  They were on clearance.  (I bought all they had.)  I checked about 10 other Walgreen's, and none of them had any.  The original tin contained hot chocolate, and the front was embossed with the name and logo stuff.  I just added a shelf inside, a piece of tape for a hinge, and covered the front with craft foam, the decorated it to look like a locker.  I thought about using paper, but decided that the foam would hide the raised letters and logo on the front better than paper.  The sides were already black, and the inside silver.  I left the back alone -- it has the ingredients and nutrition information from the original hot chocolate mix.  I figured who is going to care about the back?

The trampoline was something else I found on MyFroggyStuff.  I made one of these for my daughter, and it has been one of her absolute favorite things!  It is just two circles cut from foam core (Froggy used cardboard), and covered with duck tape.  The center part is a piece of black tights.  There were little hand weights and some water bottles to go with the "exercise" theme. 

The movies, phones and iPad also started with ideas from MyFroggyStuff, but she used images from advertisements.  I printed mine from the internet -- that way I could control the size as well as get both the front and back of these objects.  I also covered them with packing tape before gluing them to craft foam.  The tape gives them that shiny look as well as protecting them from handling, and the foam makes them the right thickness.

I wrote a couple of times about finding several Deuce dolls.  I figured that I would send one along too -- always happy when these dolls end up with kids to play with them!

It's hard to find those Deuce Dolls here. People try and sell them on Kijiji for like $40.
So I'm very happy my daughter was able to get one. Thank you!!!

Thanks for the tips, wwrich! I'll have to keep that in mind when I get around to making props for my dolls.
