I love "geeky" stuff and think your paintings and plushies are fabulous!

Whether you like the series or not that is pretty amazing! You've inspired me to give something like this a try! Nice work, she'll love it!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Tree of invisibility on: December 18, 2011 05:56:28 PM
Last year while perusing craftster I came upon a most fabulous idea for an un-tree instead of the standard Christmas tree. I loved the idea so much I knew I had to replicate the idea. The original post can be found here.


I absolutely love how our version of the un-tree came out. We simply used some thick wire we had hanging around in the basement shaped into three circles and fishing line to suspend the levels downward. It was so simple and fun I suggest everyone do it! Thanks to Lelyonna for this fantastic idea!

Long, long ago I made an elephant paint chip piece for my best friend. I FINALLY got around to making another and I must say after watching rerun after rerun of Futurama and my hands still covered in a gluey mess, it was well worth it.

I adore custom versions of Guess who games. I had to make my latest version for one of my greatest friends when she turned 30. I hope you enjoy it and are possibly inspired!

Thanks everyone! I took the picture I liked from one of her albums and played with it in photoshop so I could have a good base of reference to create the pop art look. It's just acrylic black paint on glitter card stock that has been sealed with acrylic spray. Pretty simple to do just a little time consuming. Smiley

I was rocking out to my favorite 80's station the other day when Bad Reputation came on. After singing at the top of my lungs (and possibly scaring the pedestrians on the sidewalk) I was inspired to make something to honor the great Joan Jett! I am by no means a painter, but I decided to try my hand at some pop art. I must say I am rather proud of myself on this one. Without further adieu I give you my finished product....

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / A Mad Hatter Tea Party Shower on: March 28, 2011 08:44:00 AM
My BFF is obsessed with all things Alice in Wonderland so what would be a more fitting theme then a mad hatter tea party for her shower?!

I made all the food myself and unfortunately didn't get any pictures of the culinary delights. The shower was held early September (a little late on the posting) so I served both minestrone and cheddar bacon soups along with various finger sandwiches and a mean chicken curry salad. I was SO busy I didn't get a lot of pictures of the decor period, but thought I would share what I had.

On to the best part!

The invitations

I used photoshop to put her face in place of Alice's and used this for the front of the invitation. She registered at two places on-line as well as Target so I made custom registry cards by taking old playing cards and gluing a small piece of card stock with the web addresses to each card. They came out really cool so I'll have to see if I can get a picture of one.

As is our custom we MUST come in costume to everything. I was the white rabbit leading everyone down the rabbit hole.  Grin

The tables were dressed with mismatched tea cups and saucers (these also served as favors since each guest got to take one home), tea pots, and white roses painted red. One of the tea pots even has the dormouse sticking out of it.  Wink

I found these awesome fake roses in pots at Goodwill for about $4 dollars each. I took them home painted they partially red with fabric paint and ta-da!

A lot of the drinks and food were tagged with eat me and drink me labels. Tea, wine and kool aid squeezeits were served for beverages.

The party mostly took place outdoors, but inside was decorated with garlands of cards, home made mushrooms and flamingos and anything else I could find that fit the theme.

Group shot!
