And they are here!

I would have had them on the shelf, but were painting the walls and there are none up. But I love them and I will find a home for them soon.

Project Name: Jabba the Pug

Brief Description: I have been looking to learn embroidery so joined a hoopla along for motivation and ideas. Super fun start was picking things you love: I love pugs and Star Wars, and together we have ... Jabba the Pug

I did him on a old place mat that worked nice to stitch on. I learned the French Knot and the Chain Stitch. Super fun to learn. Helpful to see it on video tuts.

Then I'll frame him up nice after a good cleaning.

Mine is all stitched and ready to show.

I have a love of pugs, all sizes, and he's a big one, thus Jabba.

I only did a few French knots but I really wanted to figure them out cause I thought that they would work best for little whisker freckles.

16  First Time Diaper Cake in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Monty on: May 26, 2013 06:24:25 PM
I had a baby shower to go to for a co-worker so I thought that it would be fun to try a diaper cake.
The person throwing the shower suggested getting more people in on it because they can get expensive.
She was right!! Baby stuff ain't cheap and diapers can add up. I have no kids and had no clue the cost! So there's one tip there, budget at least $50 for a jazzy, sizable cake.

This is the rough finished project.

I started with the swirl base, really gave me a big bottom to start on.
I used a cut up cereal box as a guide to work out the diapers in.
Then make sure you have some really big elastics to fit. I had to tie mine together.

This is half-way done.
You can't see it but in the middle is a cardboard tube to tie things around.
I started using the roll method to make the others layers.
The ribbon hides the elastic and add the extras and you have a diaper cake.

Check out my matchbox from VegasZombie! She went with the nature theme.

Love the tiny flowers. So well done. And the little trees.

Here it is opened; look how stuffed it is!

Kitty thought that she could have some fun with all those little beads.
Thanks to VegasZombie. Love it. Especially the string of pearls!

Check out the awesome matchbox that Onyxnox sent me. She decided to go with the Mad Hatter theme. Love how she went about it!

Awesome quote on the bottom. Whenever I read/watch Alice in Wonderland they can sound slightly sinister. Makes it interesting.
Check out the swag I scored. I really enjoy the "hand made" items and the necklace pendant.


Thank you so very much, Onyxnox.

Awesome green bead and dragonfly charm. Dragonflies I love! Aside from ladybugs those are the only bugs that don't freak me out. Oh and butterflies.
