I received a package from Sherrie B, UT last week but I was knocked down with pneumonia, so I didn't send yet - sending tomorrow!

Here's what I got from Sherrie -

All the goodies

A learn to write book for my son & some cool bowl covers

More treats for the kiddos (although I am partial to sour candy, so I will def. have to share)

My favorite - a scarf and some crocheted cloths

More goodies and crocheted slippers for me & my boy! He loves them so.

THanks again, Sherrie!

Here is my wonderful package from Craftastrophe:

Her fave candy - it was immediately claimed by my two year old - "Mom, this can be my potty treats!"

A flamingo can cooler featuring her fave animal - jazzing up my promotional wine glass! (Wine time starts at five during the week, but at two on Sundays)

Her fave craft supply (glitter=awesuuuuummmmm), favorite color (All!), and favorite game, which I cannot wait to try!

Something to wear with my favorite pattern - argyle!

Our favorite character, HK. Funny thing is I bought HER a HK notebook, too! But I selfishly kept it and gave her something else HK. Also, some COOL folders - I love office supplies, too!

Something local - coffee syrup, the state drink of Rhode Island. I'm totally intrigued by this and intend to add it to some frosting - I hope that works! She says they typically use it in milk or milkshakes. Also, a handbag musthave - lotion!

Thanks, Craftastrophe! Now my package anxiety is even worse! I hope you like yours!!!!

Jennifer, I'm glas you like the shirts!

I got a super cute necklace and PERFECT earrings from the very talented phoenixfiredesigns today! Thank you!

The photos are phone photos, so they are not the greatest clarity.

Thank you thank you thank you!

OMG I am so embarrassed - I don't even know why I typed that wrong! I even had the card RIGHT NEXT TO ME and I totally spaced anyway. I am soooo sorry!

4  My one year old is a better painter than your honor student in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by forcemajeure on: January 10, 2009 08:22:01 PM
We decided to use up some of my canvas stash, so I gave my son paintbrushes, acrylic paint and carte blanche to go paint crazy.

The hardest part was teaching him to paint the lines so straight on the deer antlers. JK. I handcut a stencil, applied to to the gessoed canvas, he painted on the canvases, then peel off the stencil and voila!

This is the piece he made for his new big boy room.

6  Wedding invites in Weddings and Bridal Showers by forcemajeure on: October 29, 2008 02:44:42 PM
These were the invitations to my wedding - well, part of them anyway. The lid of the box has all the details on a sticker inside, and all these little charms were in the box. Then I wrapped the whole thing in kraft paper and mailed them like that. Every one made it to its destination unharmed!

7  Paintings for my friend in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by forcemajeure on: October 29, 2008 02:30:05 PM
These are my friend's dogs. The paintings are going to go into her son's room.

PS Golden retrievers are HARD to paint when they have the white face fur.

The viszla was a lot easier.

Edited to add - apparently, I paint dogs a lot. These are my family's golden retriever and mutt.

8  A couple of shirts for my kiddo in Stenciling: Completed Projects by forcemajeure on: October 29, 2008 02:24:47 PM
I made the stencil for these w/drafting paper (I think that's what it's called, it's adhesive on one side) and an Exacto. Fun!

This one fit him well.

This one wouldn't fit over his head. Bummer.

I got my v. kawaii stuff from I'mSewSilly - check it out!

I love my apron - it's a strawberry guy! Sorry, no modeling pics until I don't have a giant pregnant belly. Maybe I can convince my husband to model it...

A hot plate - I don't know how she did it!

My fave - carrot guy on a bookmark!

10  Fun w/box cakes! in Dessert by forcemajeure on: August 03, 2008 07:54:37 AM
Sometimes I like to take a break from scratch cakes. But I still want to jazz up my cupcakes, so I HAVE to throw something in there.

These are caramel cake mix with a piece of a Cadbury's Caramel bar in each one. And the frosting (I'm sorry, I thought this was sheer genius) is Nutella. I ate like four in a row because they tasted so good.

Now I'm thinking of all kinds of alternative flavors and frostings - I made margarita cupcakes but I didn't take any photos because my husband said the frosting looked like mashed potatoes. Maybe strawberry daiquiri or pina colada would work better?
