I received from mljohnston on .... saturday, i think. sorry for taking so long to post! but i have been busy teaching myself to knit!! hehe. 

first up...awesome yarn (there is one missing, but you will see it later...)

i think i love the denim the most, but they are all very "me"

next, an awesome book on knitting that she learned from (which has def helped me out a lot already!)

a neckwarmer that she knit for me :-D,  it i's sooo soft

Michigan-y stuff (i think if anyone saw me with those pencils i would get shot....seriously...  Wink )

AND finally...

she also sent me some knitting needles...which i have already put to good use.

you have no idea how excited i am! i know it's not the best, but it's the best knitting i've ever done! until yesterday all i could do is cast on, and now look at me :-D hehe. 

anyway...thank you so much! i love everything, obviously!

I recieved from both my partners on Thursday and am just now getting around to posting pics, hehe.

First from smmarrt:

Some great stamps from all over the world!:

And the rest:

I think my favorite thing is the little people cutouts! they are awesome! I really have no idea what i do with them, but i'm excited to come up with something, lol.  Also, I LOVE how you put this all together so nothing moved around. GENIUS!

From pinupmommy:

Awesome stickers:

when i saw that handle with love sticker on the outside of the envelope i thought it was so nifty and was planning on asking where you got it.  when i opened up the envelope and saw you sent some along i was so excited!

ribbon/tags/notecard/do dads:

and my fav thing from this envelope:

thank you both some much! you sent some awesome stuff!

5  Dasies and Peanuts in Dessert by laes43 on: June 20, 2009 06:39:22 AM
I made these cakes awhile ago, but thought I'd post them anyway.  The first i made in collaboration with my best friend.  It was for my mom's 50th bday party. 
The second was for school.  The assignment was to design a cake appropriate for a child. Snoopy and Linus are sculpted from marzipan.

6  opinions and advice wanted on wallets in Get Product and Website Opinions by laes43 on: February 17, 2009 02:27:37 AM
So, I made myself a wallet a few weeks ago when my store bought one bit the dust.  I was mightly impressed with myself and how it turned out (minus a few mistakes that could have been avoided if i wasn't in such a rush to get it done). Anywhoo, a few people have told me i should try and sell them, so i thought "why not?!"  There is an art/craft consignment shop a few blocks down from where I live and i was thinking of checking it out.  My only concern right now is pricing.  The wallets are pretty cheap to make, probably like 3 bucks tops.  But they do take many hours expecially if i cross stitch on them.  Here's the one i made for myself as an example:
The front

The pocket in the back:

and an "Action Shot"

Basically I want to make them all pretty similiar. There will be variations obviously.  So, I really don't want to underprice myself.  I was in her shop before and there were puzzle piece earrings in there for $20 ... I thought that was a bit much, personally.  And it makes me feel that my original thought of $15 for the wallets doesn't seem like much.  I would appreciate any thoughts on pricing and also, any advice on working with consignment shops. 
Thanks everyone!

9  Warhol-esque stenciled tshirt of my best friend! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by laes43 on: December 10, 2008 04:31:52 PM
ok, so this is my first attempt at stenciling, and doing a t-shirt...

the top two are definitely better than the bottom two, i think i may go in and fix the bottom two with a paintbrush. I don't really understand how they all turned out so differently when i used the same stencil lol. oh well.  I think it's fairly decent for a first attempt.
i have a feeling this is going to get addicting!
