1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Car themed school organizer on: September 09, 2009 08:42:16 AM

We have to buy and use the school mandated organizer/date planner with a picture of the high school on the front.  The personalize it, I put on various car stickers and think it looks much better.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Zombie Dog! Neon Photo from digital photo using phot software on: March 04, 2009 06:53:52 AM

This was made with the free software at www.picnik.com.   I think it makes my dog look like zombie.

This is the original photo:

First it was edited cropped to a square, then used the create tab, then neon then made it green, then added a border and made the border neon green.
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 34 ENTRIES / SALVIDOR DALI MEETS ANDY WARHOL, RECYCLED MAGAZINE WRAPS & A RISQUE REINDEER on: January 02, 2009 11:14:42 AM
All of the wrappings are from recycled items except the glue stick and tape that I used to secure the decorations and wrap the gifts.

My Mom called this "Salivdor Dali meets Andy Warhol" - it is hodge podge of cutout for a magazine; it is on an old padded envelope with the UPC side up to show our numbered society. Nicole Kidman's hair, some Gen X bearded dude's face with my hand imprint for antlers.

Here are some presents wrapped in magazine pages (one of my Mom's old "Ready Made" magazines) with MOM lettered on the front:

And here is my "I'm Bringing Sexy Back" Risque Reindeer made out of a paper grocery bag and magazine pages:

Here is the How-To Link that I posted on Cut & Keep:

Thanks for looking.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / EASY GIFT TO MAKE AND GIVE - NO SEW FLEECE LAP BLANKET FOR UNDER $10 on: December 23, 2008 07:17:46 AM
I made this no-sew fleece lap blanket for my Grandma to keep her warm while she watches TV. 

No special skills are required - all you do is just have to be able to cut fabric and ties knots.

It cost a little under $10 to make (I normally do not go into fabric stores, my Mom does - she said many stores have half price on their fleece right now).

Mom did make me go with her to choose the fabric on this because it was for Grandma and it was a no-brainer because Grandma loves frogs. 

This is also a good project to do while watching TV and you can get most, if not all, depending on how fast you can tie, by the end of movie.

All you need is 1 yd of 60 inch fleece for the front and 1 yd 60 inch fleece for the back. 

Lay the two piece together with the wrong side of the fabric butted up against each other and the right, or the pretty sides, away from each other and up.

You cut into the fabric through both layers and to keep the strips all about the same length, you can draw how far in you want to cut on a popsicle stick, then lay the stick on the fabric and use it as a guide. 

I am not sure in inches how far in on this blanket, but it was about an inch from the top of a popsicle stick was over the edge, then just cut down the fabric to the end of the stick (doesn't have to be perfect, just close in size).

Once you cut all around the edge of the blanket, then tie the strips from each side of the blanket together in a knot all the way around until you are done.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / NO SEW FLEECE N FABRIC BLANKET FOR KIDS on: November 20, 2008 05:03:05 PM
This is an easy way to make a blanket (or "blankie" as I used to call it) for kids.  I made this one for my cousn's little girl, Mia. 

This is the front

This is the back

All you need is to 1 yd of fabric or a fabric quilt panel for the front and one yard of fleece for the back.  For the front I chose the motorcycle panel because my cousin is into motorcycle (and so am I) and hoping she will like them too when she is older.

You lie the fabric with the backsides together, but so both are the same width/length.  You then want to pin it all way around about 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 inches around to know how far to cut in for your fringe.  The width of the fringe itself was not measured in this case, but here is what it looked like.   

All you do is tie the two pieces of fringe (top and bottom) together all the way around and you are done.
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / KOOD ADE PIE on: November 19, 2008 05:54:08 PM
Mom found this receipe at Cut Out and Keep by Creativemind
Here the link:


It is tangy and sweet with a bit of crunch from the crust all at the same time.

What I used:
1 16 oz tub of whipped topping (you only need 1/2 of it for the pie though, the other half you can use for a spoonful on the top after it is done

1 12oz. can of Condensed Milk

1 pack of Berry Burst Kool Ade (you can use any flavor though)

Mix it all together - I didn't have mixer so I just mixed it by hand until it looked like all of the lumps were gone and the Kool Ade was mixed in.

1 Graham Cracker Crust
Pour it into a Graham Cracker Crust and smooth it around - I used the one Mom bought at the store, but there are receipes where you can make your own, but I have never tried it.

This is what it looks like:

You then stick in the fridge for about 2 hrs and take it out, cut and serve.

We put a spoonful of whipped topping on the top.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / GIANT ORANGE CLOTHESPIN CLIP on: June 13, 2008 04:13:01 AM
Made this in 7th grade industrial arts class and gave it to my Mom for Easter (the writing at the bottom of the clip is just in pen where it is dedicated to her).  It is 12 inches long, made out of 2 pieces of wood that I shaped and a metal spring clip, then painted it orange because she likes Garfield.
