3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Save The Date on: March 26, 2010 07:20:28 AM
So my fiance and I have finally set a date 8-14-10 (after being engaged almost 4 years and together almost 10)
I took a picture of my engagement ring awhile ago and I really want to use the picture... I've come up with this... I don't know if I should change wording or what...

Its says:
Almost 4 years ago he asked and she said yes!
August 14, 2010

Please save the date
Formal invitation to follow

This is the one I really like

This is the one I really like that doesn't have the card under it..

This was the 1st one I did

I took the picture with my phone because my camera takes pictures that are WAY too big...

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reclaimed Shirt on: March 18, 2010 02:49:39 PM
So this was a shirt my mom used to wear.. more of a smock. It's covered in Old English Sheepdogs (which is what I grew up with). The last bag I made for her she ended up using as a purse rather than a school bag but that's fine... I came up with a new pattern tried it out and LOVE it... so I decided to chop the shirt and make her a bag.... I still have the front of the shirt to use too Smiley Mom LOVES her new purse!
This is the full bag - I was going to do two handles but wasn't paying attention and I think this will work better for her.

Hand stictched hearts around all of the dogs

And I finally figured out how to do the zipper pockets! SO THRILLED! This is the inside with a magnetic closure and a zipper pocket.

C&C welcome. Thanks for checking my bag out.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Cozie on up... on: January 30, 2010 02:40:35 PM
I've seen the cup cozies on here a few times and loved them... finally made up a pattern... I had already made an amazing bag for my aunt using this fabric for her organization she formed... here's a cozie to go with it...

The blue is the "backside" and the pink with the black dresses are the "outside" I think it could be reversable too...

What it looks like "closed" *this is also the truest to color picture*

C&C welcome
Thanks for looking!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Snowflakes on: December 31, 2009 07:45:02 AM
So we bought a new house and this was our 1st Christmas together in our house. I needed to come up with someing for the bathroom... I had seen a garland on here and decided I was going to try it... only I didn't end up doing that exactly... pictures aren't the greatest... my camera does huge pictures and I need to downsize some to get some nice ones on.
Anyhow.. this was my take... I plan on making black and white ones for my uncle.

C&C welcome
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / St. Patty's Day for a Wee one on: March 13, 2009 01:30:45 PM
I made this little outfit for my niece who is almost 3 she loves when I make her things especially clothing and knows which items Ive made her which thrills me!

Bought the white t-shirt then dyed it Kelly green. Found a 4-leaf clover shape, cut it out put it on the shirt stitched it on then made pants to match. I hope she wears the outfit on Saint Patricks Day!

The whole thing... didn't get photos of it hanging though...

The 4-leaf clover

The pant fabric

What do you think? Comments and Criticisms welcome.

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Roses are red... on: February 18, 2009 10:39:06 AM
I took photographs for someone on Valentine's Day... and thought I should write a little card to them thanking them for the opportunity. So this is how the card came out... it's the photo, black frame, silver frame, black frame (the card). I took the photo printed it and put it all together. I love making photo cards because they're one of a kind  Grin
What do you think?

*also couldn't find my regular cutter *grrr* and the silver is more silver than it scanned...
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Valentine for my Niece on: February 12, 2009 06:23:36 PM
I didn't sew the shirt but I did sew the heart onto it... I thought this would be cute for my niece who's a little over 2 1/2 years old to wear on Saturday... as my parents are going down to visit her. Picked up a plain white T and then used some scrap fabric I had and cut the heart out and sewed it on...
What do you think??

An up close of the heart

C&Cs are most welcome
