21  Re: 4 x 6 Art Swap February 2015 in The Swap Gallery by CraftyMamaBee on: February 25, 2015 09:12:58 PM
I received today from BigBangMomma! It was a super cute Kitty 4x6! Little does she know my daughter loves kitty cats! I so allergic we can't get a real one but her stuffed ones goes everywhere! She used materials to make it work as a mug rug but with the bead hanger she had put on it... It is now a welcome sign to my 4 year olds room! We love it thank you!

22  Star Wars Valentine's T-Shirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: February 11, 2015 09:43:02 AM
My 4 year old just got to see the original Star Wars for the first time and fell in LOVE with it! Everything is "Star Wars this" or "Star Wars that". We are so excited she shares our love for the films but the only thing is there isn't enough girl stuff in it... At least not by us in clothing. She is getting Yoda Valentine's we found on Pinterest and I decided she needed a shirt! So for her class party I made this Vader themed Valentine's Day shirt!
Ok so I found a picture of Vader and uploaded it to my Cricut in the Design Space web based app. Then I found a balloon image and attached it to the Vader outline and cut it out on card stock. Which I then put onto HeatnBond and attached to this black Valentine's fabric I found in my stash!

(I ended up using black thread for the blanket stitch based on the advise of a friend, which I'm glad I listened to!)
I also used the Cricut to cut out the wording on to iron on material as well.
First I attached Vader and used the blanket stitch on my Singer with black thread to reinforce Vader and ironed on the wording. I decided to put the day and year on the back by the neck because well I didn't want to wasted the left over pink!

She was so excited! She told me it was "fabulous"! But considering she is 4, I just hope she doesn't change her mind about wearing it before the party!

Here is a shot of her Valentines that I found from celesterockwood-jones.typepad.com. With glowsticks for the lightsabers!

I received a totally awesome package from sweety28303! So many really cool things!

The painted mason jar is so great! It's already got a candle and is in my craft room/living room! I have wanted one of those forever!

The pin cushion small mason jar was perfect for my sewing pins! As you can see it has already been put to good use! Now I won't worry about my 1 year old finding pins on the floor!

And even though it was over 70 here today I am even modeling my new crocheted hat which I might have to fight my daughters for!

Half the candy is probably already gone and the mailbox with all the stickers my 4 year old is in love with! I am sure I will be finding foam heart stickers for the next year in mysterious places!

I love the Kirby coaster and the little heart. My 4 year old took the heart to be a coaster for her baby dolls cup.

Thank you so much! I love it all! I couldn't have asked for a better partner! A

Oh and the crochet bordered hoop is hanging up already too. It was the perfect add on to our holiday decorations!

Well I SENT mine!!!! I can't wait for my partner to receive!!!! I usually get nervous about my partner liking something I've made and well I am pretty sure I did good this time! I tried to really spoil her and think I might have done good!!! I finished up a bit of hand stitching and went straight to the Post!!! This was so fun! AND I even was able to make one last minute additional item! Grin Grin Grin Grin
Just be careful when opening.... There is something near the top and I would hate for it to accidentally get cut!

Well I made some progress yesterday! But I did learn that what I planned is going to take longer than I thought! I am hoping to make some major progress while my little is in preschool today and with nothing going on tomorrow be able to finish up! The send out date is the day before my mini's 1st birthday and I still have some crafting and organizing for that!

But I do have a teaser shot of something I've been working on over my morning coffee today!

26  Thirty-One Inspired Onesies! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: January 27, 2015 10:21:06 AM
So I have a good friend who sells Thirty-One.... Because in todays world who doesn't know someone that sells it?! Am I right?! Well my friend was surprised when she found out about her 4th Baby Girl last year and when she was born just a couple weeks ago my friend asked if she could give me some old fabric swatches to decorate a few onesies for the new baby! (My girl friend ins a Director in Thirty-One)

So here is what I made! I used my Cricut to cut out 31 and the Heart and I also used my Cricut Explore to make an Iron on of the Thirty-One logo for a third onesie!

Here is a shot of the Fabric Swatches and Stencil. i used Heat n Bond on the back and then stitched around it on the onesie that wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be since knit gives...

I know this is kind of short and simple but I made it while I was in the middle of a 2 week virus/flu bug.... Turning on my machine was hard enough! But for the beginning of the year I figured it was a good start of my crafting for 2015!

I'm SO very sorry I didn't post sooner! October is chaotic in our house! I had birthdays, vendor events, and on top of it all sickness! I LOVED the hoop I received! I know she posted pictures but I have one of it from my mantel where it is prominently placed!

This morning I finally had time to go through the entire gallery! I LVOE everything! Once this hectic year is over I'm hoping with the new year I'll have more "free time" to be a little better about being able to participate in swaps! I think for now I just need to watch ::::sad sigh::::

I received some of the most amazing twinchies from my swap partner katara! I live near the ocean and my 5 month old's room is sea-themed... so these are awesome! Best part was on the card she sent was little diagrams to make more! I am going to make another and then frame the four! Thank You SO much for these AMAZING sea-themed twinchies!

Ok so I received at the beginning of the week but this has been a crazy week! My Mini just finished her first year of Preschool! Yesterday was her last day and there I am crying as she says goodbye to her teachers! It was so bittersweet! And now we are preparing to say goodbye to daddy for a week tomorrow as he leaves for business on the East Coast... I am stocking up on wine! Being the first time it's just me and the girls for a whole week!

I did received the most amazing doll from MamaTrader! She sent such a lovely letter that really sent me to tears! Rumina is made out of a stick from the playground she takes her son to and a onesie from a friends baby girl and a piece of scarf that was her grandmother's. She is the most amazing doll! When I opened the package the scent of lavender was just coming out of the envelope.... little did she know I was having the hardest second day with the girls... my 4 month old had been crying for 2 days straight with no naps and my 3.5yo was just non stop talking... Rumina is my spirit doll of lactation... as I am nursing my baby and I stress  sometimes about it ending too early... so here she is

Thank you so much! She is sitting on my breast pump and greets me every time I pump... which is quite often! She still has her lavender scent but I have some lavender oil from Maui, from the lavender gardens there and I am going to use it to keep her scent going! Thank you so much!
