OK, here we go many things I made and didn't post throughout the year!

I was in a play in April, my character was a ghost risen from the bottom of the lake. I made my own costume  I wore an old black dress and dyed many layers of cheesecloth different shades of blue and brown and draped them all over. I added a fish net (decor from the Tiki Bar section of the party store) and did my makeup.

Embellished the hats and hoodies for my husband's & my Halloween costumes we were the Keeners from an old Canadian kid's show called Camp Cariboo. Also made the bandanas for around our necks  hubby's is off in the pic.

My mom and I made 6 hot air balloon centrepieces for my SIL's baby shower... here's one Smiley

A pillow cover for the Mini 12 Days of Christmas swap each petal cut and sewn on individually!

Lamp made of plastic placemats for the 12 Days swap

Typographic quote (digital artwork) for the 12 Days swap

Feathered wreath with deer and birch tree scene in the centre, also for the 12 Days swap... IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE!

Lemon poppyseed soap for the 12 Days swap

Tree scene pendant for the 12 Days swap...

Locket necklace for the 12 Days swap!

Earrings for the 12 Days swap!

Tea chest for the 12 Days swap, with little elephants for feet:

Made 5 reindeer for the 12 Days swap; one had a red nose and the rest had brown. Put them all in a paper bag for a little game; whoever pulled out Rudolph won a bonus prize! (These are the plastic canvas kissing critters; when you squeeze their cheeks their mouths open revealing a chocolate Kiss inside!)

Bible verse magnets for the 12 Days swap:

Stockings for the 12 Days swap for my partner and her family... terribly dark photo. Sad And forgot to add in the tie blanket I made for her dog!

Painting for the drink swap:

Tin of drink recipes for the drink swap:

Tray and coasters for the drink swap:

iPod cozy for the birthday swap:

Beetlejuice & Lydia dotees for the birthday swap:

"Cupcake Wars"... I was obsessed with the show Cupcake Wars for awhile, and asked my husband to give me a Cupcake Wars style challenge. He set a table of ingredients themed around Canada, and this was the result; a Clamato chocolate cupcake with Crown Royal chocolate ganache filling, maple pecan cream cheese frosting, and a piece of candied back bacon.

Hubby's birthday pie  strawberry rhubarb!

Coconut cupcakes for my SIL's baby shower:

My first pecan pie:

My first rosettes:

A few of the 100+ mason jar brownies I made for my friend's wedding favours:

Love the VeggieTales books!

The snowman cross stitch is super cute too. Smiley I like him without the outline!

I'm giving in and posting a few food projects.

Baking boxes for my coworkers made 10 of these and designed the labels (and have SO MUCH BAKING left over... I made way too much of everything!)

Doughnuts for Christmas Eve visits and Christmas Day breakfast! My first time making them. Smiley

And a non-edible craft an ornament for my niece, who was born on a rainy day.

This time of year is so great to see all the projects rolling in in time for Christmas!

My latest was stockings for my bosses, Jeff and Sandy. Everyone in the office pitched in some cash and I filled them with all sorts of fun things!

Cardamom is delicious! I was going to say, the closest thing I could compare it to is ginger; I really don't know how else to describe it!

Quantumphysica, speculoos (we call them speculaas) are SO GOOD! Om nom nom. I'm of Dutch heritage so we always had them growing up - though when we were kids we called them "windmill cookies" since the store bought ones looked like windmills. Smiley I made pfeffernsse (peppernut cookies - very similar taste to speculaas) last year and they're one of my new Christmas favourites!

They also use cardamom a lot in Finnish baking (the other side of my heritage) for coffee bread (pulla) and piiparkakku cookies. (Pardon my spelling!) Totally delicious!

On the baking note... I have a baking related goodie to share! (And one non-baking item that I forgot to share months ago!)

First up, non-baking: shower invites for a dear friend of mine. Made about 30 of these buggers! This was my prototype, and I ended up adding beads on the ends of the scroll posts on the final ones. Smiley I wrapped them in brown paper and stamped a pocket watch on each, and taped the ends closed with pink and yellow checkerboard washi tape.

Next up, on top of being a bridesmaid, I made their wedding cake! Vanilla with vanilla buttercream, at her request. The lighting in the hall was really dim, so unfortunately I don't have great pics. Hopefully the photographer got some! The cake is a pastel-ish yellow with blue ribbons around the bottom of the tiers, and homemade gum paste flowers. It was my first time doing a double barrel tier (two cakes stacked to make one extra tall middle tier) and I really like it! I had to go to Home Depot to get a putty knife big enough to frost it with, haha.

And on the back, I made a polymer clay worm (from the bride's favourite movie, Labyrinth) as a little surprise keepsake! When she went over to look at the cake for the first time, I told her she should take a look at the back. I was going to wait until they were cutting the cake but I was too excited! She loved it so much that she CRIED! I'm so glad I could do something that she was so happy about. Smiley I have better pics of this guy somewhere, he'll probably get his own thread eventually. For now, here he is supervising the decorating. Smiley

What fun goodies! The towels are great. I bought my husband some of the beer salt for Christmas last year; he hasn't tried it with beer yet but the salt itself it actually quite tasty, haha. Smiley

I received a fabulous box of amazing from SheridanLA today!

First up, fun garnishes - umbrellas and drink markers, palm tree stickers, a little recipe booklet, and a cute necklace to wear while serving up goods at our.....


A great Tiki Bar sign which my husband thoroughly enjoys!

And my favourite, the piece de resistance - an amazing collaged canvas with a Rat Pack photo and one of my favourite Dean Martin quotes: "Don't drink and drive. Don't even putt." This is such a fun piece and I can't wait to put it up in my craft room! Smiley

Thanks so much, Sheridan - it's all worth drinking to! Smiley
