21  "I VOTED" Sticker! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cookimistress on: November 02, 2008 07:48:53 PM
That's right, I voted and I'm DARN PROUD! I'll be a nervous wreck on Tuesday, but I'll be rockin' this to the best of my fried-nerve abilities Wink

So, I went to Micheals in search for a base for my sticker. I decided on this metal, domed, Asian/Indian number [it was amongst other religious and cultural icons of the like]. I thought flat would be best, so my hubby took the piece to work and hammered it flat. Then I glued the sticker to smooth "back" of the pendant, and used a coating of glue to seal it.

After that was dry, we brushed on a light coat of Easy Cast Resin to both sides. Finally, I worked out a way to lay it flat and added another coat of resin to just the sticker part. The result is a nice, smooth, slightly-dome shape Smiley

On to the pictures!

22  Re: 2008 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by cookimistress on: October 18, 2008 12:18:37 PM
I just finished mine!! Cheesy

"Marie" [Antoinette]. Marie from Disney's the Aristocats, but Marie Antoinette style [I wore the dress for my birthday, October 16th, which is the same day Marie Antoinette was executed!] I made my entire outfit, and my husband and I made his executioner costume, too.

Original post [with way more photos]:


Are we a sick, but crafty and clever couple? ;P

23  "Marie" [Antoinette] (IMG PLUMP!) in Halloween Costumes by cookimistress on: October 18, 2008 12:13:54 PM
My birthday was October 16th, which happens to be the day that Marie Antoinette was executed in 1793. For my birthday, we went to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, so of course, my costume was Marie Antoinette... kind of!

I actually was Marie from the Aristocats, but in the style of Marie Antoinette, so I made her style of dress in Marie colours. I helped my husband make his costume, too... he was my executioner... lol!

My dress was an adaptation of the Simplicity pattern #3637. I didn't make the cape, added a modesty panel behind the corseting, used an eye-let punch instead of hand-sewing them, and used lace instead of tulle with scalloped edges for all the lacy bits. Also, the skirt was totally free-styled since I wanted it shorter, without pockets, and I wasn't making the basket under skirt for it to go over. Instead, it was gather before sewing to the bodice to make it fullest on the sides. Then, I altered a petticoat I already had to have puffs on the hips, to get that classic hoop skirt shape without having to wear a giant hoop skirt to a theme park lol.

I also decided to wear flats for comfort, so I added some pink ribbon to make my shoes match the outfit. I also made the big pink neck bow to match Marie's. It's probably my favourite part of the whole outfit Wink Finally, I threw together a REAL quick pull purse the night before Wink

Oh, and I didn't make the ears. I bought them in Disneyland Paris [along with really cute Marie paw gloves].

My husband made his tunic all by himself, most of his arm bracers by himself [i just helped sew on the velcro], and he and a friend made his cowl.


The ultimate unconventional love:

Horribly sick action shot:

The back:


neck bow

It was a LOT more hand sewing and thereby time consuming than I thought it would be, but all in all I was happy! Not many people got it of course, but I did get a couple compliments on originality Wink

Holy crow, you guys! Prepare yourselves from the awesomeness that awaits you!

Here's a shot of all the loot:

And since I took a LOT of pictures, I put it all in a slideshow:

If you want to see each picture full-sized and individually (which I recommend), then go to the album here:

Thank you sooo much knichole!!! I absolutely love everything!! Pooh Bear is still asleep in Pooh Corner with his mat and I am still admiring how awesome that star-ghan looks on my couch since my whole living room is red, white, and black.. and I've always wanted a star-ghan! Cheesy

Oh, and Birthday Cake season is coming up for my family, so that apron's about to be well-loved Wink

I am curious what recipes were in there and would like to see more of the cards.  Can we get another pictures of the cards please?Huh

I had a list of all the recipe names, but I lost it lol and I can't remember all of them, so instead I offer up the pictures I took before I sent:

The front has the ingredients, the back the directions. Cheesy

My Halloween Costume is Disney themed! I'm making a Marie Antoinette style dress... but I'm going to be MARIE from the Aristocats! lol So it'll be a giant white poofy French dress with pink satin bows everywhere. I'll also be wearing the Marie ears and paws I got at Disneyland Paris last year Wink

27  Twilight Goodies! [IMG HEAVY] in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by cookimistress on: September 03, 2008 09:05:54 PM
I am, like many others, horribly obsessed with the Twilight Saga Novels. *suppresses squee* Of course, this means that I have to flaunt my adoration whenever possible!

I have many more ideas to come, but this is where I started...

A stretchy Bamboo Tile Bracelet:

A matching Necklace:

And a Twilight-inspired Book Thong:

The faux-rubies reminded me of blood drops Wink

I'm still searching for the wolf carving to add along to the crystal hearts I intend to buy, in order to make Bella's Bracelet-inspired goodies! Wink

Thoughts/Comments??  Grin

Guess what I did today!

I went to have lunch with Pooh Bear and Friends at Magic Kingdom's Crystal Palace!
[God Bless the Family Holiday Celebration 50% off meal ticket! ;P]

It was super fun, and pretty reasonably priced [even before the discount], with TONS of yummy desserts! haha

Hey girls! Thought you all might be interested that I got my one year pin yesterday at work! Cheesy

I was surprised when they called my name out in our meeting, because my one year anniversary technically isn't until August 14th, but hey! hehe. I got a cute little card with a picture of Walt and a long quote in it about his goal for WDW, with a note from my Manager thanking my for being a part of the magic.

Now, on to the five year mark - the statue! hehe.

ps- I agree. Summer is going by SO fast! But, then I go out to do parade duty in ninety degree weather and ninety percent humidity and I'm EXTREMELY thankful that it's almost over haha. I just hope I can now find the time to devote to my crafting!
