1  Cupcake hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by torturedMom on: November 08, 2009 05:42:36 PM
I knit this sweet cupcake hat for my two year old.  I got the pattern free from nakedsheep.com (although the link doesn't seem to be working)
I have very limited knitting abilities but this was very easy.  The sprinkles are bugle beads

I don't have an action shot because she refuses to wear it  Embarrassed
silly baby!
thanks for looking

2  Swarovski crystal bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by torturedMom on: November 08, 2009 05:25:06 PM
This is my first attempt at these bracelets.  They are pretty easy once you get the hang of it.  I used swarovski crystals and seed beads.  My two year old is my model.  I think next time i will use a more delicate looking clasp for the skinnier bracelets

Thanks for looking!

4  Patriotic Screen Room in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by torturedMom on: July 06, 2009 07:49:23 PM
I recently re-did my screen room that is off the kitchen in the back of my house.  I wanted a patriotic theme.  I painted the bottom half blue and the top half white.  I used buntings as valances and some store bought accessories to spruce it up and my husband put down a new indoor/outdoor carpet. It's not 100% done but I am pretty happy with it so far.

and this is a small pic of what it looked like before (we were also having a pool installed)

thanks for looking!

5  wallpapered stair risers in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by torturedMom on: June 03, 2009 07:11:09 PM
I have been looking for something unique to do with the staircase in my house.  I was originally thinking of using tiles on the risers...but I'm a little too lazy for that.  Then I saw this...http://www.doorsixteen.com/2008/09/03/wallpapered-stair-risers/ and I fell in love.  That wallpaper is by ferm living and is approx. $115.00 a roll...crazy!  So I searched around and found something similar for 30 bucks.  2 hours later my stairs were done!  I'm pretty happy with them.  Here is the before:

and here is the after:

6  Rocker theme Sweet Sixteen (pic heavy) in Party Planning by torturedMom on: April 29, 2009 09:30:19 PM
My daughter had her sweet sixteen a few weeks ago.  Her colors were silver and black and her theme was a rock music type of theme.  So instead of place cards I made backstage passes for everyone to wear and instead of numbering the tables she named the tables after bands.  I thought it was cool because after the party you could use the pass to hold your school ID or work Id.  My dad made a board to hang all the passes on.  I made the guitar centerpieces and put the band names on them with my cricut paper cutter.  I also made bags for her V.I.P gifts with my cricut and I made bags for my V.I.P...(yes, I had V.I.P too) We bought shirts for her V.I.P that had a tuxedo prited on the front and said "Francesca's Sour 16" on the back.  I made my V.I.P shirts with iron on transfer paper I printed. The favors were rock candy that I wrapped in clear bags with ribbons.  And my daughter being the rock star that she is, is not a dress wearing type of gal, so she opted for a nice vest over a guess shirt I got on clearance and some cool silver combat boots.  I did however force her to get her hair done, but just a simple french braid in front like Jennifer Aniston had at this years oscars...ok, nuff said...on to the pics

the guitars are foam board that I cut out and spray painted.  The vase is covered in a piece of scrapbook paper
the backstage pass/table place card
the board my dad made to hold the passes

rock candy favor
the front and back of the pass, the invitation, and favorshirt I made for my friends...my daughter tortures my friends
I made her name in wood for the dais

bags I made with the cricut
this is me with my daughter, she surprised me by dancing with me to "thank you for loving me" by Bon Jovi.  She's a good girl afterall.

8  Ikea bedroom with craft closet (pic heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by torturedMom on: August 25, 2008 08:17:46 PM
In our old house the master bedroom was bigger and I had a loft to use as my craft room.  In my new house, we have more room overall but the master bedroom is smaller and the new baby claimed my craft room as her bedroom (selfish baby)!  So I gave away my  awesome but huge furniture to a friend and I redecorated after many trips to Ikea (God, I love that store).  Our closet is very small and pretty useless for clothes so I got wardrobes instead and changed the closet into a craft space.
Enough talk...I still have some work left to do on it (like change those fancy paper shades), but here are some pics of what I did so far.

and after my trips to Ikea:

thanks for looking, I'm pretty happy with it.

10  Re: UPDATE: Pattern added! another ear flap hat i made in Crochet: Completed Projects by torturedMom on: March 08, 2008 10:35:32 PM
I made one too!  only i added a funky Mohawk.  it's for my 4 yr old nephew.  I'm not so great at crochet, and had no idea how to decrease, so my earflaps don't exactly follow the pattern, but, i don't think it is so bad for a first try.

as modeled by my niece
