1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fireworks on Fridays on: August 07, 2009 08:07:02 PM
A nearby area had fireworks displays every Friday night in June.  My family went each week and I was able to get many pictures.  My camera is still fairly new so I hadn't figured it all out at the time I took these photos.  Nevertheless, I really liked the way a few of these turned out.

Everything looks absolutely beautiful.  I can't decide which is my favorite part--the banner (so cute!), the centerpieces, or the photo display (LOVE the button magnets).  Your grandma is lucky!

Those are so pretty!  The color combinations are great and your embellishments look fabulous! 
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Alaska Vacation Photos (image heavy) on: April 10, 2009 11:11:19 PM
So I had the opportunity to go to Alaska last summer and left with several hundred pictures.  I'm only posting a handful though Wink  I absolutely recommend a trip like ours to anyone--my 81 year old grandma had as much fun as my 15 year old brother!  It was an amazing experience.  The rest of the pics (including those of cute animals!) can be seen on my Flickr stream here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aelewis417/sets/72157616604572852/

None of these have been retouched in any way...

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: What are you making for Christmas this year (2008)? on: December 02, 2008 09:51:02 AM
I'm taking 18 hours this semester plus we live right where Hurricane Ike hit so my life has been crazy since September.  I'm in the middle of my last week before finals so all the craziness will be ending soon.  I'll have two weeks to get all of this done, but I think I can do it!  I've been wanting to craft so badly for about two months now but won't let myself because I know my schoolwork will get neglected.  I'm ready to get this stuff going!

Mom: knifty knitted scarf
Dad: photo album of his side of the family going back to my grandma as a little kid
brother (16): NO IDEA!!! He'll probably just get non-crafted things.
my grandma: scrapbook of family Christmas pictures since 1950  and a photo video of our trip to Alaska
friend: pillow as she requested (I made her one five years ago in high school and she said a new one is needed)Boys I babysit (ages 4, 7, 11, 15): knifty knitted hats--all made of the same yarn, but with different designs (they all requested hats)
Parents of the above four kiddos:a photo video of the kids throughout this past year
18 month old cousin: a sock monkey made of cute stripey socks
cousin and his wife: family album with my grandma's recipes and family pictures intermingled
Uncle:same as above
five ladies I work with:banana nut bread in decorative trays ($1 each @ Michaels), felt ornament, and beaded candy cane
11 year old cousin:bright orange knitted hat (orange is her school color and she loves to hunt)
handchime students (about 30 kids): glass ball ornaments with swirly paint or snow inside
Sunday school students (about 12 kids ages 4-7):felt ornaments and beaded candy canes
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Hats and Scarves made with Knifty Knitters (IMG Heavy) on: October 14, 2008 05:14:19 PM
Those are all so cute!  I taught myself how to knit using the website wikihow this weekend.  It has been extremely helpful and helped me learn to use the knifty knitters i bought without instructions, too!  The site for just the knit stitch using plain old needles has a video I watched several times to figure it out.  It'd definitely worth looking into.
