1  Re: Cat lovers swap gallery! in The Swap Gallery by saxonsweetie on: January 13, 2010 01:52:40 PM
Here is Mr. Fisk enjoying his crocheted dead bird:

For those of you that don't know, Wilson Fisk (AKA the Kingpin) is one of the villians from Spider Man and is Dare Devil's arch nemesis from the... well, Dare Devil comics. He is a HUGE DUDE, and I just knew, even when this little guy was a teeny weeny baby that he was gonna be a monster when he grew up, and here he is, in his best Wilson Fisk pose, with his new favorite toy!

Awesome hand-knitted washcloth with cat image. Love this! h_pets has mad knitting skillz!

Books for me:

Kitty toys. There were two of those orange toys, but they hid one from me. Tiger yanked it out of the box as soon as I got it open:

They were wondering why I had taken their stuff and were eager to get it back:

She also sent me this adorable (and yes, kind of creepy) cat decal, an awesome postcard which I will probably put in a frame, cuz I'm a dork like that, and some tags for each kitty with their name and a protective rune:

Here is (Princess) Leftovers sporting her snazzy new collar:

She also made an awesome green and brown collar that I had put on Tiger, but he wasn't crazy about it. I think you can kind of see it in the picture with the books, top middle. I'm going to try it on Mr. Fisk, if I can get around all that fur!

Thanks so much to the lovely and talented h_pets 360! You have been a great partner!

First of all, I would like to thank my partners for their patience with my slow response time since I have been sick. I have recieved from BOTH DoodleLou and GSpinn and absolutely LOVED both of my packages! They are fantastic swap partners and really made me feel better considering what I am going through with my health right now. Here is what I got from DoodleLou:

The pics really don't do any of this stuff justice. I can't wait to do something with the little wooden things! The little felted fellow is Mego, and he is such a charmer. His cute little nose perks me right up! The fabrics are so lovely and the glass pendants are beautiful. I can't stop touching the alpaca roving and wondering what I am going to do with it. Maybe I'll try to felt a little something for Mego! Everything was wonderful!

GSpinn sent me and equally wonderful package:

My husband was looking through it with me and remarked, "She has you pegged to a T!" Everything I got was just my style. GSpinn, I really don't know how you got so much stuff in one box!
Thank you both so much. You have been wonderful partners!!!

4  HELP!!! Need help with diaper cake! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by saxonsweetie on: October 17, 2009 06:59:54 PM
It's for a little girl and it is my first "commissioned" cake, and only the second one I have done. I have the main cake and the ribbon attached, and have the topper. The little bunny on top has special sentimental value (the first toy daddy bought when he found out they were having a little girl) and the pink all around the bunny is a blanket that goes all the way through the cake, so those things cannot be moved.
Here is what I have so far:

Here is the topper:

A closer shot of the ribbon:

And these are the little doodads I need to attach to the cake, but can't figure out how.

I thought I might add some flowers and curling ribbon and tuck them into that, with floral stakes or something that would be hidden by the ribbon. Any thoughts?

7  Bleached out Rorschach shirt (Watchmen) 2nd try! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by saxonsweetie on: September 26, 2009 01:02:02 PM
Okay... tried it again with the freezer paper and it came out 110% better this time:

The color is fine, it just isn't dry yet, so it looks stripey. I couldn't wait for it to finish drying to post it!
C&C Welcome!

I didn't get anything done at work today! Well, that's not entirely true. I didn't get any work done at work today. I made plenty of bows though! The yellow one and the x-ray one are my favorites!

9  Toilet paper origami in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by saxonsweetie on: September 18, 2009 07:34:20 PM
Never get bored in the bathroom again! Forgot to bring something to read? Amuse yourself by folding your toilet paper into delightful and attractive shapes!

I youtubed it. Lotsa neat stuff on there.

Houston... We have a problem!
It's supposed to look like a flowerpot with a flower in it. This one is in the kids' bathroom. Now I don't know where to go pee. I don't want to mess them up!

10  The BIG gay sushi cake! (pic obese... and wordy!) in Dessert by saxonsweetie on: September 09, 2009 06:43:10 PM
Here is a little back-story:

My sis recently came out and is obsessed with Japanese culture, so for her birthday, I told her I would make her a big gay sushi cake. I was inspired by this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=251768.0 and other sushi cakes as well as the rainbow cupcakes https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=316358.0.

So I set out to make one. Naturally, my sister has to be difficult and tells me she doesn't want a california roll, she wants something else. This is my inspiration:

I was going to use two 13x9 yellow cakes tinted with food gel in rainbow colors. I planned to use fondant for the top and white sprinkles for the rice. Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong. The little podunk town my sister lives in does not have a decent store to go to for cake suppiles, so all we have is Wal-Mart. My Wal-Mart sells the things I need, hers... not so much. No white sprinkles, and the only fondant they have is a 5lb box, which I don't need. Great, now I have to get creative.
I tried to tint some of the frosting a nice light pink to use on the top as the tuna... apparently there is no light pink, there is only dayglo pink. So it doesn't really look like fatty tuna, it looks more... radioactive.

Oh well. For the rice, I just frosted the sides super-thick and picked at it with a fork to make it look textured. Worked okay, but I still wasn't thrilled.
To make it look more sushi-ish and less like a cake that was just plain weird, I thought "I'll put a stripe of black frosting down the middle to look like a piece of seaweed." Wrong again. No black frosting, just chocolate. Dang it, I'm going for it!

But the inside? Oh the inside turned out lovely! We had lunch at Olive Garden, and when we sliced that sucker open, it sure turned a lot of heads!!!

It  was tasty. The middle bit was cream cheese frosting, the outside frosting was vanilla. The cake was just two, plain boxed cake mixes... colorfully tinted!
