I had computer problems but now I'm able to upload what I received from angelxwing!


I received a folded white rose, a time turner made with Peeta's pearls, a mockingjay coaster, and a shiny bow to add to my Capitol couture!

A closeup of the bow:

Thanks again angelxwing for a great swap! And look forward to your large item coming soon! I'm about halfway done Smiley

Yesterday I received from juliel85!!! Smiley I absolutely love everything! I can't wait to show off these items to my other HG-obsessed friends!!

This is what everything came packaged in! I looooove the glitter and how it looks almost burnt:

Everything inside of the box:

Each token came packaged in its own little brown envelope tied with twine.

Here are each of the tokens:
District 8

District 12

from Peeta -- This is part of my favorite quote!

from Gale -- very beautiful braiding

And here are closeups of everything!!

awesome detail!!!!!

And last but not least, Cinna sent me some gold eyeliner to wear to the movie premiere!

Julie, I've already thanked you, but thanks again! This has been the best experience for me and best first swap ever!

35  Kurt Halsey, Narnia, and a dinosaur on pillowcases in Stenciling: Completed Projects by cloud_berry on: January 08, 2011 08:29:40 PM
Hi all!

I wanted to make something cute for my friends that wouldn't cost a ton of money and I didn't want to fiddle around with clothing sizes and such, so my bright idea was to print something cute on a few pillowcases! I thrifted the pillowcases...about 50cents each (SCORE!). I've had these stencils for at least a year now, lying around, wanting a home, and I finally got around to using them:

This is the same one on an actual pillow, so you can see the size/placement:

Narnia was a pain in my butt to cut out each little line thing and then to try and put it on straight was a headache, and then I accidentally turned my iron upside-down and the water from the steamer poured out ALL OVER half of the stencil that I already had ironed on (but I hadn't painted it yet, thank goodness). Somehow it turned out okay:

And a little dinosaur on the edge of a pillowcase:

36  Bedsheet to Infinity Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cloud_berry on: July 24, 2010 09:10:27 PM
Inspiration & pattern found here --------------->>  http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html

Obviously I'm a little late for the bedsheet challenge, so I'm posting here!


I started out with this sheet that I found at a thrift store for $3.00. Couldn't pass it up.

I cut the circle out.

Then I cut the little circle out in the middle. And it was too big. Yikes. :\

After some finangling, ripping the seam out once, and putting it back together, I made it work!

It's seriously so much fun! If you've never made one before, I highly suggest it!

Next time I'm making the straps a wee bit wider, though.  
The sheet is 50/50 Poly/cotton, so it drapes okay, but is stiff enough to not cling to my body. I like it best that way.

37  Tractor Graduation Cake! in Dessert by cloud_berry on: June 24, 2009 08:39:43 PM
My younger brother just graduated from high school about a month ago, and even more recently had a graduation party. I was in charge of baking the cake and he didn't care what it looked like so what better way to celebrate his outdoorsy-ness and farmer tendencies than with a tractor cake!?

I used two boxed cake mixes: a 13x9 pan, a bundt pan, and a smaller like 6" circle pan. The icing is buttercream. It took me a couple hours but I was soooooo happy with how it turned out! And everyone ate it all up that day! We had no leftovers!

38  Alice in Wonderland and Banksy in Stenciling: Completed Projects by cloud_berry on: December 22, 2008 09:15:11 PM
This is my first post of the stencils I've done, but not the first time trying out freezer paper stencils.

For Christmas, I always make my friends shirts and the past two years I've "upgraded" from puffy paint free-hand to freezer paper stencils.

Friend #1 is really excited for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland so I made her this shirt. The front is plain black scoop neck with red splatters, and this is the back:

It's Alice and the White Rabbit (obviously) with some red splatters here and there.

This is a close up to show the crackling effect I wanted. I used a few layers of regular acrylic paint and then just stretched the fabric gently. After that dried I flung some red paint on it to look "edgy."

Friend #2 is just awesome and I made her this shirt:

I'm sure most of you have seen this stencil if you've been to stencilry.org.

And a close-up:

I'm really happy how both shirts turned out. Stencils came from stencilry.org.
