11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Teaching myself more advance editing and photography (3 pics) on: October 30, 2009 08:08:49 AM
I have been trying my hand at photography and photo editing pretty steadily in the last month.  I think these are probably the best ones I have so far.  Any comments or constructive criticism would be appreciated.  Schooling really isn't an option right now so I am trying to learn on my own.  Please let me know what you think (gently please, my ego if gragile Smiley

p.s. Sorry they are so big, photobucket is being poopy lately and this was the only code I could get....Anyone else having probs with them?  Half the time I can't even access my images..

12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Serial Killer Daddy, Zombie Mommy and monster babies (lots o' pics) on: October 22, 2009 01:12:52 PM
I promise, I'm really not morbid.  Not at all.  I just found this new editing thing that I am really diggin' and it's close to Halloween and all.  So here is our Family of monsters and zombies.  Grin

This is Frankenbaby.

His ghostly brother

The dead beauty queen

The vampire toddler

The zombie mommy

And last but not least, the dead serial killer daddy.  This doesn't look anything like my husband by the way.  When i should him, he asked me who it was. LOL.  Anyway, don't think I'm too creepy, I did this all in fun, but I thought I'd show them off since it's the spooky season.

Thanks for looking!

13  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Creepy baby dolls and mannequin thing **Spookily Pic Fatty** on: October 22, 2009 12:47:27 PM
I took some pics of these old babies at a museum last year and just got around to editing them in time for Halloween.  The mannequin was there, too.  I don't know about it, man.  It was just plain creepy to begin with! Hope ya like them!

Thanks for looking.  Comments make me happy and feed my ego....  Grin
14  COOKING / Dessert / Please be gentle it's my first time! on: June 20, 2009 08:54:09 PM
So we just got Dish Network and I have been watching those cake decorating shows. WoW! What talent.  Anyway, I'm not super swift around the kitchen, but my 15 yr old DD and I decided to make a fodant covered Father's Day cake.

I was chocolate cake on the bottom with buttercream filling and the hill was made out of butter cake with buttercream icing filling.  It was a blast to make and not too embarrassing for never having done anything close to this before. 

Here it is minus the little flag on top that says "#1 Dad"  and needs to have the extra cornstartch wiped off and stuff, but you get the idea.

Thanks for looking, encouragement, tips and critiques welcome!

Oh and I know the sand trap should have been bigger, kinda looks like a plop of poo.  Ah well, live and learn. Smiley
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My second ever project...I am officially an addict! on: February 08, 2009 07:37:02 AM
I saw the post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289963.0  and decided it would be really cool if i could do that to my kids' faces and give it to my mom for a gift or something.  Anyway, I've only ever embroidered once in my life, I am totally new to the whole medium and I only know a couple of stitches, but I thought i'd give it a shot.  I tried the whole press and seal thing, too.  I'm not going to lie, it was a pain in the arse to get the little sticky pieces out around the eyes, but it was really great pattern wise to just lay it on my fabric and go.

So here it is.  Obviously, I have some bobbles, like his mouth and ears, but I am really happy with it overall.  I do need to learn how to keep my stitches tighter, too.

Comments and tips appreciated!

16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'm so freaken excited! Be gentle, it's my very 1st time. on: February 06, 2009 05:40:40 PM
I have been looking at embroidery patterns for a few days and finally took the plunge.  I found a crappy old hoop that someone gave me with some stuff and some floss from the same way. I didn't want to buy anything if i didn't like it.  OMGosh! It wa so fun! Ok, it's by far from perfect, but I've never done any needle work before and it was from an old pattern off the net that I traced with pencil that didn't have any instructions.  I'm pretty proud for just wingin' it. I totally jacked up the eyes so I added some eyelashes to make it less creepy looking.  I have the back stitch and split stitch down now, though. Smiley

Any comments or critiques or tips welcome. I think I have a new addiction! 
17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Personalized homemade pillowcases in a pinch! on: January 26, 2009 11:40:43 AM
I realized at the last minute, we're talking the day before, I didn't get anything for our Godchildren for Christmas.  The last couple years I have made them each something.  So on a whim I came up with these pillowcases from fabric I had lying around.  I thought they turned out pretty cute and the kids seemed to appreciate them.  Very quick gift idea for sure!  The pics are of them folded in half.  They are regular sized.

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / designer two toned kleenex cozies on: January 26, 2009 11:34:13 AM
I made a ton of these for teachers, grandmas, and friends for Christmas.  They were a major hit.  I got the tutorial right here off of Craftster so thank you to whomever you are if you recognize your design.  Sorry, I have the link faved on my other puter.  Anyway, they were well received.  I got the fabric from sample books from an interior design store for free so they are made with $70-$140 a yd fabric. Can't beat that! Hope ya like 'em.  Thanks for looking.

19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / The cursed patchwork tulle twilry skirt sock monkey jumper from hell! Pic XL on: January 26, 2009 11:11:32 AM
I started this atleast a year ago.  I'm pretty sure it sat for about 6 months just needing buttonholes and buttons.  This thing is evil!! It totally crapped up my prized (the nicest thing I have ever owned) Bernina sewing machine.  Even after having it serviced it doesn't run the same.  It also crapped up my serger, broke an endless amount of needles on both machines, the elatic thread I used was old apparently and I had to gather it umpteen times.  UGH! I am getting frustrated just thinking about it.  Anyway, it is finished.  It is wayyy to big for my petite girls.  The bodice is much too wide for them and I am NOT about to adjust it now.  Nope! Not touchin' it.  Anyway, here it is.


Thanks for lookin'!
20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / **Insanely good cinnamon chip and applesauce waffles** on: January 23, 2009 09:26:37 PM
My 14 yr old dd loves to bake.  The last time she had a sleepover, she was making some waffles with the waffle maker for her friends.  Since I am trying to diet I told her to try using applesauce instead of oil in the pancake mix. Well! She went and threw in some Hersey's cinnamon chips and all we had was cinnamon applesauce....All I can say is she is NEVER allowed to make them again!!! Wow were they ever good.  Her one friend said it tasted like apple pie.  I didn't have any syrup on mine and they were still too good to only eat one.  I can honestly say it was the best I  have ever had.  If you like waffles you MUST try using the cinnamon applesauce and chips.....insanely good!
