1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Baby Sampler on: January 15, 2010 09:25:55 PM
My friend just had a baby and I love my family tradition of giving samplers, so I made one for her.  I blurred the name, date, and weight out.  Also- I am so happy with my back side- of the cross stitch I mean!  Pretty fancy.  This took me probably close to 7 months working at night after work.

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Freezer Paper Tie on: August 09, 2009 10:29:52 AM
I made ties for the gentlemen I know- but i forgot to take pictures before I mailed them off.  This is my brother's.  I bought a basic tie and created a freezer paper stencil of a sparrow.  The cool part is that he actually wears it!

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Split side clutch on: August 09, 2009 10:23:54 AM
I drafted my very first pattern (before i have always relied on other patterns or making it up as a i go).  I made this for my sister's birthday.  My hubby and I picked out the fabric (teal and red- gorgeous).  There's a removable strap for the wristlet.  I gotta say I had a killer time finding a d ring!

THe face on the purse is a plastic strinky dink barbie

Here's the split part

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Watercolor stencil- my parents on: April 27, 2009 08:22:36 PM
I saw this thread (and her other onese) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301135.0  and I loved this idea, so i pulled out my masking fluid and my parents' wedding picture and Viola!

here's the original photo:

and my process:

This will go to mom for mother's with a necklace I made.

(Shameless plug- I've used this photo before... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229083.msg2489661#msg2489661)

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Mustache Mugs on: April 12, 2009 08:53:56 PM
A while back I saw a photo of a friend using a mustache mug.  AWESOME.  So i got some ceramics pens and got to work.  I made a set of four mustaches, different colors, with the definitions of the different types from the American Mustache Institute website.

and in action- they were a birthday gift for a friend
10  COOKING / Dessert / Twilight cake on: April 12, 2009 08:50:11 PM
I saw this post a while back and loved this cake: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292046.0.  This was my inspiration, though mine was poorly done, and doesn't do justice to my inspiration.

I loved the bite marks, and the word twilight was done with melted chocolate written on wax paper, dried, and then adhered to the cake.

The insides were supposed to be a checkerboard white/ red velvet cake, but the red velvet expanded too much while cooking and the "checkerboard" was lost.  I chalked this up to "you live and you learn".  Luckily, it tasted fine and the girls didn't care one whit about my inability to use fodant.
