1  Every den needs a little game! in CHALLENGE 120 ENTRIES by pookiemccool on: October 06, 2017 06:22:27 PM
I'm not the mother type myself but when my friends decide to have kids I enjoy making gifts for the baby or for the nursery. So when my friend told me that he and his wife were making a little den for their first child I immediately knew that I wanted to make faux taxidermy! I found the pattern on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1314512865) and made two slight modifications, I didn't want to make it in purple and I wasn't really fond of the lips.

2  Davey Havok inverted cross replica leather jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: March 24, 2017 08:37:56 PM
My husband and I have both loved A.F.I. for years. Several years ago when Davey Havok started wearing an inverted cross leather jacket my husband really wanted one. It isn't exactly something we could find for sale anywhere, I'm pretty sure Davey had his custom made.

Two years ago I decided to make my husband one for his birthday but I ran into a few issues with the pyramid studs, it turns out trying to attach them directly to the jacket was a bad idea for multiple reasons! This year I finally found a way to make it work and I'm super proud of how well it looks!

3  Rainbow Caron Cakes knitted scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by pookiemccool on: January 21, 2017 06:07:11 PM

I saw the rainbow Caron Cakes yarn over the holidays when I was buying yarn for another project and immediately fell in love. Such brilliant colors and super soft for acrylic yarn! I like my scarves long so I can wrap them around my neck and still have the ends fall at about my waist or below. I used almost 2 skeins and made it nice and wide so it would be warm and cozy. I wanted it to work up quickly so it is just straight knit.

4  wood burned coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: January 21, 2017 04:45:11 PM

I had a lot of fun wood burning drum sticks so I decided to try some coasters. After burning them I colored them with watercolor pencils and sprayed them with clear coat. I think they all turned out super cute!

Here are a few up close pictures:

5  Wood burned drum sticks. in Completed Projects by pookiemccool on: December 10, 2016 10:47:43 PM
I love the smell of burnt wood and have been looking for an excuse to use the wood burning tool that my husband bought last year. A friend of mine asked me to burn some drum sticks for a friend of hers so I decided to make use of the extras. I am really pleased with how well they all turned out!

Here are details of the band logos:

6  Christmas stocking crazy! in Winter Holidays by pookiemccool on: November 28, 2016 07:31:35 PM
My sister-in-law asked me to make stockings for my niece and nephew for Christmas this year. I had so much fun that I made tons more!

The first one I made was a Frozen stocking for my 6 year old niece.

The second was a Minecraft stocking for my nephew who is 10.

Then a friend of a friend commissioned me to make a few more Minecraft stockings.

Then over the holiday weekend I made a bunch more because they were fun and I needed something to do while watching the Gilmore Girls!

7  some painted Converse for friends in Shoes: Completed Projects by pookiemccool on: October 23, 2016 09:42:51 AM
I painted some shoes for my friends as a thank you for letting us stay with them for a few weeks when we drove across the country. I used Angelus leather paint and my own brushes so I could get better detail than the little nail polish brush attached to the cap.

I was really worried when one of them wanted me to do Settlers of Catan themed shoes. It has very boring realistic looking art compared to most other tabletop games that we play but I was proud with the layout I created.

I had a lot more fun with the Watchmen Dr. Manhattan theme!

8  Candy/Sugar Skull pinup in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by pookiemccool on: March 23, 2016 05:58:52 PM
A friend of mine commissioned me to paint her a candy skull girl. I hadn't painted or drawn anything like it before and had tons of fun! She is painted with acrylics on a 16" x 20" canvas and took about 15 hours (including drawing the concept out on paper first). After she was done I jazzed her up with some paper flowers and butterflies.

9  Harry Potter Sorting Hat lamp in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: November 08, 2015 11:52:53 AM
My brother-in-law is getting married in January and his bride to be loves Harry Potter. I had so much fun making the Nightmare Before Christmas Mayor lamp that I knew immediately I wanted to make Harry Potter and the sorting hat! I used paper, cardboard and a ton of mod podge, paint and acrylic glaze to decorate the lamp shade.

I received my Miss Argentina (Beetlejuice) inspired poppet today from Tenitsu. Smiley

Her hair and cape are perfect, she even has slits on her wrists.
