Can the bewbs be made from fabric and foam/polyfill? I am not great at knitting, or chrochet. But my sewing machine seems to be my friend. I think I could turn out some of these with fabric. Kind of like a mini pumpkin? I don't know what a "B" cup, "C" cup...on up to the double "D" would be. Please post a link to where you send them, yofi? whoops. I see you did.  http://www.knittedknockers.org/ I will have to check in on them. Perhaps they don't all need to be knitted. Perhaps some pillows of any sort will do. The fabric will wash. And still puff out the blouse, so no one knows  Grin

Again...cudoes to you. I will see this year about stashing out my fabrics {with nipples..ha, ha} for those patients who need it. The laugh and the product. We have several patient centers for Breast Cancer. I have mine for mammograms. They would get a kick out of this. Perhaps some of the gals there might join me, or at least put out flyers for other patients..either to need them, or contribute to the basket.  Grin

I love Care Bears. Tender Heart is my favorite. But your Sunshine Bear is really cute. Wow. 12 hours. I love the rainbow umbrella. And the sun in the background. And really cute shading and colors. And the hearts are really cute. I know those are hard to do with xstitch. So must have been keeping the bear round. Very cute. I want to kiss this one's nose  Grin

I like your designs. Very creative. And the banana/monkey theme is great for a little kiddo. I love the colors. Very jungle-like. And cute that you included the bibs, onsies, toy. This will be a very wonderful package to share for your brother and sister in law.

And for a bow? Tie on a banana  Grin You could even write the greeting on there with a sharpie. And use it as a tag.

I don't see a problem. You seem very organized. I like all your closets and bins. And great idea to separate the kiddo stuff. Maybe that is what I should do to free up some space here in my papercraft office. My house got "stuffy" when I moved in a roommate in my spare bedroom. I still haven't sorted all that. Christmas jumped in the way  Roll Eyes And health issues.

The problem with getting rid of everything, is that you just have to buy more to create something. And sometimes the items I have can inspire a project, so it is nice to see some stuff to start with. Where I don't have to drain my brain to come up with something. That, and I live rural, so our craft stores are limited to what I can find when I do need stuff. And I have transportation issues to deal with, too.

But, I intend this next year to commit myself to some projects, and share in some supply swaps, and use up some of the stuff that has been sticking around for forever. I have 5 stacks of denim jeans about 4 foot high, each. It is a good thing that I saved them, though. I was recently ill and lost about 30 pounds. It was nice to go "shopping" in my craft room  Grin And find some new ones that fit. I like to make gardening aprons out of them. And used some for a Ninni I made for roscowtown. Suni the sunflower girl. I wish I had pictures of that one, Laurel? She is very hillbilly, with a sunflower face. I think she turned out cute.

When I find the time to figure out my silly camera, I will post some pics of my 2016 progress. I had that stupid camera cord all along. I didn't realize it came apart from the recharge plug  Roll Eyes Now I have misplaced the manual. Time to clean up in here. I know it is in one of these piles. I hope my camera does not put all the pictures sideways. Lots of members seem to have an issue with that. Can't you just turn the item sideways and take the picture? Then it will turn itself upright. Just my logical thinking. Don't know yet if that would actually work.

I have been spending lots of time in doctor offices as of late, so crafting has been secondary. And I miss it. Hey, I pedaled 2 miles in 8 minutes today  Cheesy And survived the physical therapy torture chamber. I hate that one. I got to play a video game with my feet   Shocked Balance therapy. I am dizzy and fall down a lot. We are working to change that, and add strength to myself.

But here is to crafting challenges for 2016. May we all be blessed in the New Year  Grin

roler..pumpkins are easy. Buy one and throw it out in the yard. It is that easy. It won't turn about until spring. But when it does. Any type of squash. My favorite is acorn squash. They seed themself. Split them if you like, but they will do their own thing. Let Mother Nature take over from there. She loves growing things.  Grin

Goals for this year? SHARE.

I love those boxers. I might need to pull out some stash fabric and make myself some. I love wearing them about the house. But the elastic is so expensive. I think I might make mine with drawstring.

Buttons are outrageous in cost, too. So is lace. I tend to be a bit frugal with that. It comes in handy for the right projects.

So, I am late to the party here, but jumping in my best. I can't wait to see what everyone destashes this year. Perhaps it will give me ideas for new things to try.

Count as you like, with my terms. I don't count. I just lurk and join along. I am sure I will make 50. No need to prove it. But this site motivates me to move along, anyway. And yes, I owe a project yet to AIMR. I don't know why I stalled. It is almost together. All the hard parts are done. So look for it this year

I love the large ladies, like the one on the turtle. Those illustrations are really neat. Like fatty pin-up girls. And your shading is awesome, ZombieLili.

And the hoodies look real comfy. I don't wish for one, as I would not wear it. I do hats and a scarf. But maybe having them together might be a better idea. Less to fuss with. I think I will consider that this year. I think I have a fleece blanket looking for a new job  Grin Did you give a pattern link, texscrapper?

I have one of the plastic ornament kits. Now I will have to dig it out and fill it. Hmmm. What to put in it?

Darn it, you Super Over Achiever.  Grin Don't set the marks so high. We all aim to get there, just not two days into the atmosphere  Cheesy WOW. I can't wait to see this one take shape. Please post more on the other thread. That 50 projects one. And keep us inspired to do our daily rituals, as well. I am slowwwwllyyyy gearing up for stuff. You are heading up the pack.


Oh..and I have a fruit and veggie sticker board on my fridge. When I figure out my camera, I will post it here. They are very cute and colorful to collect  Grin A wonderful page to add for your journal.

I have his girlfriend. Mrs. Slendy. Her pelvis is the same, but she has better man boobs than yours  Grin And she is on a stand, but her feet don't hit the floor. I guess she is the "Roller Derby Queen". And they are made to pose so that you can sketch..but I have not had good luck with learning how to do that. So she sits on the desk just waiting to be discovered.  Shocked Happy New Year.


I guess I staked my spot here, too. Here is your song for today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbVoo7YLWnI
Bearded Man is shy. That is why he is not with the band.

I will apologize in advance for any added music. I will just update my original post on this page, so stay tuned. But when I come up with new things..music is art. And it allows me inspiration to create. We have belly dancers here  Grin What a fine form of art. And our yoga set. And we have our yarnies, and our felters, and quilters, and painters, and everyone else like me who just wants to try our hand at all of it.

I don't listen to crappy music. If I do, I won't share it on my page. Roommate is heavy metal.  Angry I won't share that. Unless you PM and ask for it. Some of that goes way dark. This page is for upbeat only. 2016 will be a better year. Darn. keyboard is broke and I can't get an exclamation point.

Guess what? I had the camera cord all along  Grin It unplugs from the adapter that charges the darn thing. Why didn't someone clue me into that? Now I just have to learn how to use the darn thing, and not make them go sidewaze. TURN THE CAMERA WHEN YOU TAKE THE PICTURE. Then upload it, right?

Be prepared, because that is one of my projects this year. LEARN TO USE THE CAMERA.  Cheesy
That will help with a lot of things. And bug the pants off of all of you, when I do my photo dumps  Grin
