2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / What do you get when you need to make 50 baby shower invites *Pic Heavy* on: January 10, 2010 11:37:43 AM
So I am throwing a baby shower for a friend of mine.She has 50 people coming (which I only fond out this week and the shower is in three) So when my MIL, husbands aunt and I came together the invites all ended up different. I am loving them! We are doing a black, white and yellow theme since they have no idea what they are having!
So what do you think?

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Reindeer Feed on: December 14, 2009 11:00:00 AM

Every year my dd and I like to make Reindeer feed. It is really easy and super cheap.
This is  a great gift to give away  to families with kids (some adults to) I can't find my instructions so after looking on the web I found these instructions, Use oatmeal and edible glitter by Wilton, or colored sugar. Make sure not to use regular glitter as it is harmful to animals! Place in a bag (can be a cellophane bag or a brown lunch bag decorated to look like a reindeer). but I have always used bird seed instead of oats because it more colorful and my dd likes to pick it out but you can use what ever. These are the ones I made last year, I used clearance hallowen buckets and the just Mod Podge the paper and used some ribbon to decorate. Then I attached this poem!
   I Hope you like it !

On Christmas Eve before you sleep,
Step outside and take a peek.
Can you see them? Are they near?
You don't think so? Never fear!
While still outside do this simple deed:
Sprinkle this packet of special feed.
The glow of the stardust, the small of oats
Will draw to YOUR house those special folks!
They can't miss you now, there's nothing to fear,
For this special mix is guaranteed
To draw Santa and his famous reindeer.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Washer necklaces for friends and family! *Tutorial Added at bottom of 1st post* on: December 03, 2009 10:41:46 AM
So these took me about 45mins to make all of them, they were really easy! The big one with the string is for my best friend for her birthday, the tie dye one is for my hippie mom and the matching ones are for my niece and her doll. The rest are going to be on hand in case I forgot anyone. I am also planing on making more since they are super fast and super cheap.  Wink Thanks for looking!

**********************************************************************I have never written a tutorial before, so I hope that this one will work out. Let me know if you have any questions. I found the washers at home depot from 13-38 cents, the ones with the larger holes work better.

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / A doll for my daughter! on: December 02, 2009 01:42:56 PM
Since money is tight this year a lot of  gifts are going to be hand-made including toys. My daughter really wanted a girl doll  and even though the pattern is for a baby doll; I was able to come up with this. I have never sewn  a doll before and I haven't used a pattern since I was in Jr high. This is from butterick pattern b4o9o. The jacket is from the same pattern. I drafted the dress using left over fabric. The face is hand embroidered and the hair is in 5 different sections of yarn sewed on tape ( which was the biggest pain) all in all I am happy with it considering my experience. Thank you so much for looking, and if anyone has any comments on how to put limbs on better I am all ears.
