1  Self portrait, with daughter in Needlework: Completed Projects by Chellum on: March 16, 2016 10:05:37 AM
Today is a happy day.

I've been working on this embroidery on and off for almost 3 years. My daughter was 6 months when this photo was taken.. shes now 3!
It's my largest and most intensive one. Having two little ones doesn't allow me to stitch nearly as often as I'd like!

The hoop is 12 inches, the majority of the stitches are only 1 or 2 mm..  it's been a labour of love! It was made using 3 different shades of pewter, and black.

And just for funsies, because I take so many photos as part of my process to see how the shading looks, I put them together in a little time lapse video.I could have edited the photos to make it smoother, but I like the realism of the chaos around me haha

2  My little pony cake in Dessert by Chellum on: March 13, 2016 09:47:55 AM
I made this cake for my niece's my little pony party!  Marsh mallow fondant, buttercream icing, and some  gel icing for the water.. those white balls are supposed to be clouds haha

I originally wanted to do a more intensive cake, with rainbows and such.. but didn't have time

Here's the inside of the cake, I tried to make it twilight sparkle's colours, because she's her favourite pony (pegasus)

3  Bob ross/ family portrait in Needlework: Completed Projects by Chellum on: November 27, 2015 01:28:19 PM
Since having children, I've barely touched the needle! Here are two little cross stitches I've done this year. I have an intensive embroidery that I've put on the back burner for far too long. I'm trying to get back into it..  Wish me luck!

First, the great and wonderful Bob Ross!***

*** pattern from:    https://www.etsy.com/listing/218188948/bob-ross-cross-stitch-pdf-pattern

Then I did this little cross stitch family portrait. I made it by compiling different patterns I found online. My husband is sooo dead on!  "De" means "the" in Dutch.. I married a Dutchmen!    Ignore the fact you can see strings through the fabric.. I took it before I moved them!

4  Paw patrol lookout tower cake! in Dessert by Chellum on: November 15, 2015 07:09:39 PM
My 3 year old had a paw patrol birthday party yesterday, and I actually managed to pull off the cake in time!!!
I procrastinate and I've only made a few cakes, so I'm no pro... And I thought I was being way too ambitious... But I did it! Yay!

It's 18 inches high, made out of rice crispies, marshmallow fondant and cherry chip cake batter

5  Masha and the bear cake in Dessert by Chellum on: November 22, 2014 10:20:39 AM
I made this cake for my daughter's second birthday... It was my first time making chocolate ganache, and third time making marshmallow fondant!
Unfortunately, I didn't get any really nice photos, the sun had already started to set!

6  1 up mushroom cake! marshmallow fondant! in Dessert by Chellum on: June 02, 2014 05:59:16 PM
A few days ago was my husband's 30th birthday, and I decided (last minute) to attempt to make him a special cake.

While he and our buddies were enjoying themselves at an aerial park (I'm 28 weeks prego, no ziplinning for me) I whipped up this baby!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, it was my second time making/working with fondant!!

poor little mushroom being murdered, he only lived a few hours, but brought so much joy to those around him!

and now being gutted... I was surprised how well it held together, I thought it would basically explode!

it took a few hours to get together, but I'm so happy I did it; I had a lot of fun, and it turned out better than expected (yay!!)

7  cherry blossom wall hanging in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Chellum on: January 11, 2014 02:36:32 PM

I made this wall hanging for the baby room, right after she was born (14 months ago!)

IMG_0379 by fumeusefatale, on Flickr

I drew a cherry blossom branch on a pizza box, cut it out..

Cut strips from a pair of leotards, and wrapped it around the branches (I work with what I've got)

IMG_0385 by fumeusefatale, on Flickr

made a happy little birdie family, to represent mine (I should add another little birdie, seeing as I'm expecting 'another')

IMG_0382 by fumeusefatale, on Flickr

cut up a bunch of cardboard flowers, glued on fabric, then stitched the centers, using glow in the dark thread!

IMG_0384 by fumeusefatale, on Flickr

The only part I don't like is how camouflaged the name is, on that leopard print fabric... I planned on adding the glow in the dark thread around the letters....... but it's been a year, and it's still not done! : s

8  Skeleton maternity shirt! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Chellum on: September 25, 2012 04:57:27 PM
I saw this shirt, and fell in love! I had to make my own... so here it is!

this was my first time freezer paper stencilling.... I'm in love with it!!

I copied this girl's stencil, I should have made my own, but I was just so excited to try it out!


It's a little girl, so I'm planning on adding a cute little leopard bow on the skull!

I also got on this bandwagon, and made my little toy poodle, Jonesay, one!

It's small.. but he still fits on it perfectly, in his "dog ball" position!
So much fun to make, I wanna do another for a different room!!

10  Pillbox hat/hair fascinators!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Chellum on: February 18, 2012 07:31:54 PM
I love wearing things in my hair! So I try to make 'hair flair'. For the most part, I just assemble flower clips.. but fascinators and petits chapeaux are my favourites to do up.

The hat, and fascinators are made from paper mache, and then covered with fabric!

My latest baby is a mini, leopard print, pillar box hat

Close up...I put buttons on it! :

(in front of Amsterdam! Wink)
