291  Re: Whoopie Pie Recipe ...You'll Thank Me Later! in Dessert by Belladune on: March 23, 2011 11:51:25 AM
packed my monsters up, bought some powdered sugar, and finished up the cookies.
I made the filling exactly as stated and hated it.  So I chucked it out and started over.  What I used:
1/4 shortening
1/4 butter
2 cups confectioners sugar (powdered)
splash of milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp of Creme bouquet flavoring



yum!

292  A skating dress in Costumes: Completed Projects by Belladune on: March 20, 2011 07:33:45 PM
I teach kids to skate, and for this years carnival decided I'd get my hands on the costuming too!  And of course, being the procrastinator I am, I did them all within the 5 days before the carnival... Grin
These aren't my kids, so for their safety, I blurred their faces.  i know it can be distracting, but no deal.  they aren't mine, I don't have the right to post their faces on public forums.
Anywho....  Pics!

This one was from scratch, and believe it or not, the skirt has 100$ worth of trim on it!  Shocked 


This is the hair piece i made to go with it.  Yay for feathers and hot glue guns!


This one was recon'd.  It started life as a hideous "flying monkey" Which didn't really look like a monkey at all, more like a flying squirel.  I cut the "wings" out, and zipped(sewed) up the sides, added the spots on the back and changed out the tail.  i then cut one of the other "flying monkey's" up to make the headband.


I also made a cat ears and tail, and a skunk outfit, and some birds wings, but between organizing and watching the carnival, I had  no time for pictures!  these were the only two i could snap!

does this count as destashing?  I used ingredients I had on hand (except the coconut, I needed one of those)   and it's white!  And it might go well in J_kieviet's Arctic themed birthday party! 

Oh, my goodness; I thought this was an actual snowball!  I was really thinking it was funny that you called it "from stash"! lol


lol  I suppose I should have mentioned it was cake! lol  Though we've been stashing snow since early november, and still have tons!

I received the most awesome package from Distant_Twilight!

This fab hat! It's so thick and warm!  Good thing it's still chilly around here!


And 2 Mug rugs, one for me and one for the hubby.  I'm sure you can guess which is mine!


And a scarf of many colors (And I like these many colors) It's so soft.  I wore it to our Skating Carnival, and got a lot of compliments!  It's her first weaving, and I'm so touched she let it go for me!  It's wonderful!


And lastly a MYB!  Wewt!!  It's my first ever and I loved unwrapping all the goodies!
~She wrapped it in nearly a yard of button fabric!


~And tied it with this knotted butterfly (which is way more gorgeous in real life)


~All the goodies all lined up in a row (and the yarn) everything was wrapped in the fabric she used for the mug rugs


What was in all those cute little packages?  Lucky stars!! hundreds of them!!! And where the lucky stars will live forever!  I have 4 more jars to fill!


~And the goodies in the last bundle!


Thank you so much Distant twilight!  This was an awesome package! Welcome back to the swapping world, whom ever get's you as a partner is very lucky indeed!

Here it is!!!!  My cousin from Despicable Me!!  He's so cute!   Thank you so much Foxy Sam, he's so wonderful!!  The yarn she used is so soft and silky!

his cute face!


And because Foxy Sam is helping in Christchurch NZ, saving animals and such (so wonderful of her indeed!!)  She requested I post a pic of what I sent her too, since she doesn't know when she'll be back.
It's a Moose!  Needle felted and then jointed, so he's posable!

what a dear husband, Belladune!!  Do you know what you will be making with it yet?? 

 I made a slouchy hat out of one of the skeins, it's cotton and wonderfully not super toasty.




as for the rest of it, I'm not sure, but I may spin one into an art yarn, it's just so weird.

My hubby, being the awesome man he is, brought me home  5 skeins of funky funky yarn!!!  One turned into the bestest slouchy hat ever, and I made it for me!!!!!!
It's cotton, with really thick chunks, and really skinny sections.  It's so super soft, and I love it!





ps. I realize the pink shirt doesn't match at all.  but I wasn't about to change my shirt just for the pics :p
