I'm finally posting my pictures- I'm soooooooo sorry rhymewithorange.  Between my husband coming home, having my 4 year old discover her attitude, a sinus infection, and food poisoning...  It's been a rough week...  Undecided

Here's my frame, which I LOVE so much!!!  I cannot seem to be able to get a good picture of it.  I'll try again later on when there's not as many clouds out

An awesome little knick knack, which is perfect for me because I really enjoy state knick knacks! 

And a magazine and postcard:

And now my favorite pics!!  I'll post the rest into the Photobucket thing later on this afternoon!

Silly, yet honest, 420 folks:

How'd rhymewithorange know I have a thing for question marks?!?

This is so beautiful!

I love beer taps!

This guy means business!!!  Love street art!

Looking down the tracks- gosh, I forgot how much I enjoy train tracks.

I want to thank my partner for everything!!  This was such a fun swap!

Ok everybody, get your Wist buttons ready because I received some fantabulous goodies!!!

First and foremost, THANK YOU GrannysAnnie!!!  You have completely blown me out of the water here, and I am just in awe over everything you sent me!!  In the word's of Wayne and Garth, "We're not worthy!!!!!"   Cheesy

Here's the box:

And what I saw upon opening the box (I actually squealed!)

My very own DNA!  Which my daughter saw, and said, "Is that ladder for me?"  Cheesy

By the way, I'd like to imagine that my DNA is that colorful!  LOL!

My new favorite necklace!

It's double sided, so I can switch from happy cloud to grumpy cloud as needed, although I have a strong feeling it'll be on the grumpy side more often!  LOL!

This is by far the most amazing thing I could ever have received- It's crocheted and lined, and I'm in awe!

And it's innards (I'll try to get a better picture when it's not so cloudy)

And my dog approves!  Cheesy

Now what could be in these?

Ohhh, some super awesome buttons, and a beautiful bracelet!!

And my partner my have ESP or something because I've been trying to find another one of these to have a set of four (I only had three until today), so now I can complete my Saturn towel set!  YAY!

I have been completely spoiled!

24  Silver Yoni Necklace and Earrings- MATURE CONTENT!! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by bigfatroses on: April 22, 2008 07:06:19 AM
If female anatomy offends you, or if you are in a place where this kind of thing is not allowed, please do not continue! 


I made these for the adult swap, and I'm quite proud of them!  I used Sculpy III and sculpted each one with dental tools!  LOL! 

Sorry that the picture is blurry.  My camera is getting old and just doesn't focus on close-up's very well anymore.  I am making more of these pendants, so hopefully I'll be able to get a better picture with my husband's camera!

to change your image viewing settings please click here

The new ones I'm making are also from Sculpy III, and those are being made (per special request) for my friends Passion Party!   Cheesy  I'm hoping that with more practice, they will look better than these ones!

Oh, and this is the second time I've used polymer clay, and I think I'm hooked!

Yay!  I'm so glad you like everything!   Grin 

Here's the only close-up of the jewelry I have at the moment- my camera is really sucky when it comes to close-ups though  Sad

I received today!  Couldn't get any "opening package" pics because my DH RIPPED the box open to see what was inside!  LOL!  MEN!   Cheesy 

Here is a pic of everything:

And the pasties (wowzas, I got a BUNCH!)

I personally like the hat ones the best!  LOL!  They are so cute and unexpected!

The magnets (which made me laugh out loud since I made very similar ones for my DH when he was deployed!)

Collars, if I'm correct!  LOL!  My DH LOVES these!

And a naughty box (giggles)

Thank you Dreambelle!   Grin   I can't wait to do a little dance for the hubbs now!  LOL!

Here's Major Grizzly all set and ready to go!  As you can see, he has his "ruck sack" packed with a Good Conduct medal, snacks, and the Snow White pin-up poster!  LOL!  He's looking real sharp, and hopes to impress lots of ladies while in Florida!   Grin

Rainy arrived today!  She was so excited to be out of her envelope! 

Here she is with the first thing she noticed- sunflower sprouts!

And she needed to freshen up, so I told her where her dressing screen was at, and managed to get a pic of her!

And then she saw some new people, and she decided it was a great time to make friends!

She then told me that she wanted me to see all the goodies she came with, so here they are!!

Lastly, she meandered about the house, and was quite confused about my husband's Warhammer 40K models...  He'll have to explain them to her when he gets home!

Tonight, she and I will go through all my fabrics and notions and hopefully will be able to find the perfect materials for a new outfit to wear at the Celtic Festival this weekend!!! 

April 23, 2008

Rainy went to Rite Aid with me earlier for some Red Bulls and she wouldn't let me start the car without choosing some good "cruising" music- I think she likes Jack Johnson!

She also helped me get into the attic to find my most favorite door sign!  Here she is happy with it being up, although she said that her family wouldn't need an appointment! 

Tomorrow, we are going to the Golden Corral for a Hail and Farewell ceremony for some guys in my DH's unit- Rainy feels a little apprehensive about the outing since she'll be meeting lots of new people all at once.  I think that she'll feel much better when I help her get a nice big plate of fresh veggies!!   Grin

Here's Rainy admiring a black Australian swan:

April 30, 2008

I caught Rainy at my DD's easel this morning. 

This afternoon (in an attempt to get away from our very annoying mutt), DD and I took Rainy to see old town from the top of the parking structure at the hospital.  She was quite impressed with our opera house!  We'll have to take her to see it up close this weekend!

July 14, 2008

(I'll post a few pics here today, and then thumbnail the rest tomorrow!)

My daughter was excited to see him again!

The Major looks like he's ready to settle down, as he brought Aurora home with him!!

Rainy's little sister came as well, which is fine with all of us!  She's been a little bit shy, but I think I'll take her around town tomorrow and show her some sights her big sister saw!

The front of the scrapbook

Some of the pictures!  Love the Army men!

He's out of uniform, but that's ok!  He looks so handsome in those hats!  Smiley

We also got an autograph book!! 

My favorite page

HEHE!  The Major is something else!

I guess Donald doesn't care!  LOL!

I'll post more pics tomorrow!  This was all very exciting, and the Major can't keep his hands off of Aurora, so I think I'll leave him and her alone for the evening!   Cheesy

Thank you, FicklePegasus, so showing my handsome bear a great time!

Ok, well, I had to decide upon a different LV to participate since my original plan wasn't working out so well....   Undecided  But, I think my new LV is a better choice, as he's seen his share of travel! 

Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to Major Grizzly!


And here he is checking out a new love interest!  LOL!

He'd better get his uniform cleaned so he can impress her!   Wink

29  Shoji Screen- Frugal Stylie in CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES by bigfatroses on: April 04, 2008 05:28:14 PM
I have wanted a shoji screen for about 10 years now.  But, cost usually deters me.  And now that I am a military wife, knowing that a screen could and most likely would be damaged in a move really has made me think twice about getting one. 

So, when I saw this challenge, I HAD to make my own screen! 

I used:

6 bamboo sticks
1 package of BBQ skewers
1 shower curtain
1 ball of sisal

$9 and some pocket change!

I used 4 supplies that I had on hand-
1 hot glue gun w/hot glue stick
1 about to be thrown away shower liner
1 roll of tape
1 Dremel Smiley

Here's how it all started out:

I found my inpiration piece:


But let's face it- $134.99 is a lot when you can make something yourself  Wink

I measured and cut my "screens" with the old shower liner to use as a template:

Then I drilled my holes in the bamboo so I could stick the skewers/support beams into, and I just hot glued the skewers into the holes:

Cut, folded, and taped the actual curtain for the screen to the support beams, and then used the sisal to tie the bamboo together to make joints for the screen:

Here's what it looked like once all those steps were completed:

Then I moved it into our bedroom so I could use it to block all of my husband's Warhammer 40K junk crap models from being the first thing I see upon waking up in the morning  Cheesy:

And then here it is flat against the wall so you can see one screen from top to bottom:

Now dimensions for those who wish to know:

Each screen is approx. 5ft tall and 2ft wide! 

Thanks Craftster for giving me the opportunity to stretch my creative noodle, and make something I've totally wanted for years!

I received from irasema, and I am one happy girl!   Grin

Lots of pictures since she sent me soooooooooooo many awesome things!

Here's everything, and boy, I think I need to deep clean our floors!

Some close-ups now (the first pic, you can see that my blood sugar went all crazy on me and the picture is blurry since I was shaking.  The other pics, I was better thanks to Sweet Tarts!  LOL!)

And the stack of scrapbooking paper is literally over an inch thick!  I'm over-joyed, especially since our scrapbooking shop just closed last week.

My FAVORITE piece of paper!

And then, really, my most favorite thing in the whole box:

These super cute owl decals!!!!!!!!!!  I think I'm going to have to use them ASAP because they are so cute!


Thanks irasema!  I am so happy with everything!
