1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / My new Christmas wreath on: November 13, 2011 10:38:23 PM
We have moved 4 times in the last year thanks to the Army  (7 more months and he will retire after 30 years!!!!).  My Christmas decorations are stuck in storage so I get to start over with all of my Christmas decor.  My dd and I have decided that a Grinch colored Christmas would be our theme this year and today we made a Wreath.  I followed a tutorial I found on the internet to make a deco mesh wreath with a work form.  I was unable to a work form in this area so I made my own with a wire wreath form from Hobby Lobby and pipe cleaners.  we plan on making quite a few decorations for the tree but I also bought a few to get us started. 
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / ACU purse out of hubby's uniform on: November 13, 2011 10:20:56 PM
I have not had time to sew or craft in a while but I needed a fix.  I made this from my Husband's uniform that he accidentally washed with an ink pen in the pocket, and some scraps from my stash.  Now my son wants me to use one of his uniforms to make one for his grandma.  I guess it will be ACU purses for everyone for Christmas. 
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / witch with a serious need for a nap! on: November 02, 2009 07:03:23 AM
well i made a pettiskirt and corset for dd for Halloween.  I had tried all day to get her to take a nap but she was just too excited so when it came time to trick or treat she had a sour face and looked more like Wedensday Adams, lol.  DS picked out a zombie outfit from Kmart, he had a blast! 

at least she smiled a little
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Halloween BOOtique farbenmix Vida on: October 02, 2009 10:01:17 PM
I am loving Farbenmix patterns, this one is Vida and is perfect for applique and a total blank canvas to let your imagination run wild.  the cuff are marabo sewn onto elastic so they are removable.  the leggins are just witch tights from the halloween section at walmart that I cut off the feet and serged a lettuce edge around the bottom.  The bow has maraboo in the center and skull ribbon with crystals fgor the eyes.  I used the halloween BOOtique design set from swak embroidery and the front says Never enough shoes with a supe cute pair of witch shoes on it, and the Back says BOOtique.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / toadstool backpack action shot added on: August 14, 2009 02:09:44 PM
It is back to school time and my daughter is off to kindergarten.  I have made this adorable backpack from a Melly and me pattern.  if you frequent threadbange you may have seen it there, They have asked me if they could feature it on the back to school episode.  I wasnt too original with the fabric.  my daughter wanted it to look just like the one on the pattern with more flowers. so off to my scrap stash and an old sheet and 1 adorable backpack.

she wouldnt let me take her to school she begged me to let her ride the bus, but here is the promised action shot

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / how do you develp an ebook? on: July 08, 2009 06:58:38 AM
I do not use patterns for alot of my clothing.  I know someone experienced could make most of the stuff I make but less experienced need people need more direction.  I know the information I want to add and I also want to add tons of pics but where do you go from there. 

I want to develop the patterns and I would even like to offer paper patterns at some point but where can you get the patterns digitized?  I dont want the paper patterns to just say measure your child and do this math problem, I want to offer every step in my pattern.  and what is the cost?  I want them to look professional. I know several fabric stores that would carry my patterns once I developed them.  anyone with experience in this? any tutes out there on how to go about it?

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Chandelier fit for a Princess with off site tute on: April 05, 2009 10:22:41 AM

I have been working on redecorating my daughters room in a princess theme and it really needed a chandelier!  I found an old light (ugly brass thing) and saw the potential in it and since it was only a dollar I thought I would give it a try! She absolutely loves it!  I have a sort of tute on my blog here http://1craftymomma.blogspot.com/2009/04/crystal-chandelier-for-your-princess.html
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Yummy Belgian Waffles! on: March 29, 2009 11:31:08 AM
Yummy Yummy Belgian Waffles!

Slightly sweet and creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside make these perfect for a Sunday morning breakfast. I mix this up the night before to let the yeast do its magic and cook them in the morning making it an easy breakfast for any day of the week. You can also freeze and rewarm them in your waffle iron or toaster for a quick breakfast when you are trying to get the kids off to school.
1 1/2 cups milk
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup sugar or maple syrup
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 large eggs beaten
2 cups flour (see tip)
1 package active dry yeast
a mixing bowl big enough for the mixture to double

Warm Milk, add butter, sugar, salt and vanilla. Mix in eggs and stir in yeast (make sure it is lukewarm, you should be able to hold your finger in there comfortably like a warm bath). It may look a little lumpy don't worry it is ok just don't over mix or you will get a tough waffle.
Cover with plastic wrap, and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour; the mixture will begin to bubble. cook them up now or store in fridge overnight. When you are ready to cook preheat the Waffle Iron (make sure it is hot) and spray with nonstick cooking spray. pour about 3/4 cup onto waffle iron and cook till brown (mine takes 4-5 minutes)

If I make these with my Belgian waffle maker I need 3/4 to 1 cup mix per waffle but in my regular waffle iron it only takes 1/2 cup. I sometimes make these in the smaller iron so I can freeze them and toast them in my toaster for a quick breakfast.
Makes about 5 large belgian waffles or 10-12 regular waffles depending on size of iron
