CRAZY!!   Wink

Are you going for the "so wrong it's right" thing?  Could work!  I hope we get to see the finished product!

I don't know if it's the color of the pics, but the orange eyelet doesn't match any of the oranges in the fabric.  The red is in the fabric, so I like that.  But, if you want the eyelet to be an accent color, I would vote olive.  The feel of the fabric is a warm orangey red, with barely any green in it.  The olive is the complimentary color, and is still in the same feel (earthy colors).   Because of the earthy tone to these, I don't think it would remind one of Christmas, but that would be my only concern.

As to trading fabrics, I think that would be a fab idea!  I'm also a n00b around here, but maybe suggesting it as a theme or idea for a swap to a "swap angel" (I had to read about swaps to understand them, and saw this term! lol).  Or, maybe start a thread explaining your idea, posting your fabric up for "bids" and inviting other's to post their fabric up for bids.  Anyone interested could PM the person.  Wait to see if any longtimers agree or disagree with that first, though, cuz I dunno the rules.  A Fabric Swap, though, would def be a great idea!

Yup!  I'm a big fan of fondant, but not the Wilton's stuff.  Easy to work with, but it tastes like Blargh!  I tried to make my own, (the Ken cake) but as you can see, that wasn't too successful.  I finally went with somthing called "virgin ice" that I bought from the bulk barn.  Tastes right, and works well!  I like the smooth effect Smiley

So, my mom made all my cakes growing up, and I want to continue the tradition with my son.  They're not as good as mom's yet, but I have a few more years to practice! Wink

Ok... that looks good enough to eat!
I bet it smells good enough to eat too!
*edit*- HA, didn't see that post before mine!  (linked from "recent with pics").  Just goes to show... great minds think alike!!!
219  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: Three beaded butterfly necklaces---IMG heavy on: October 15, 2007 09:38:32 PM
Gorgeous!  **LOVE** these!!! I have also added that book to my wishlist, and I only just started into beading!  (Just tonite, actually!  That's why I'm trolling Craftster for ideas! lol!)  I just finished my first earings, and I think my gauge was too thin, (too bendy/weak, but looked good!)   I know this isn't the question forum, but what gauge/type of wire did you use for this project?  Thanks!  Smiley
220  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Ideas for gifts from the kitchen? on: October 15, 2007 12:50:21 PM
Thank you so much for all the great ideas!  I especially want to try the cocao rum cookies!  But the current recipiant is a recovering "Friend of Bill" so I couldn't do them for him.  Next guy hopefully.  These ideas I will keep coming back to, but the current recipiant was a 30 yr guy, so I went with the traditional brownies drizzled with two different types of chocolate, and then sugar cookies cut out into letters that spelled "Happy Birthday Scott!" and decorated.  I wrapped the brownies in parchment paper, and lay the cookies on top, and put it all into a fancy box with pretty(manly) tissue paper. 
With Christmas coming up, though, I'm sure to come back to this thread for all the ideas!!!
