awesome job!!! I love etching it makes inexpensive but awesome gifts.  What did you use for a stencil? is that freezer paper? I usually use stickers but it's hard to find ones I want.

25  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Dollar store Halloween wreaths on: September 25, 2010 01:27:48 PM

I'm addicted to the dollar store, with it's endless amounts of treasures.  I've also loved wreaths, but I've never made one before.  So, after a trip to our local dollar store I decided to make 3.  I picked up a few supplies:

Grabbed my hot glue gun and glued moss to one:

the hot glue method was a bit time consuming, spray glue may work better.

After this step i lost my hot glue sticks and spent about an hour looking for them, only to realize they fell behind the table ( I suggest you skip that part).  Then I glued the decorations:

The other two are just some halloween themed garland with these amazing glittery skulls I found.

I think they're pretty good for my first try at wreaths.
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Days of the Week Felt Board on: September 18, 2010 08:17:25 PM
I made this to help teach my 3 year old the days of the week.  It was a picture frame from goodwill (with some scary flower painting in it) that had plastic and NOT glass for the front.  I flipped the whole thing inside out so the picture was backwards and just the white was showing, and the closures for the frame were on the white side.  That side he uses as a white board.  The other side was then just the front of the frame and cardboard.  I covered it in felt strips and painted the words with puff paint.  He loves it! We sing a "days of the week" song to the tune of the Aadams Family theme and he can do it all! Please comment Smiley

27  COOKING / Dessert / Marshmallow fondant Cake on: September 18, 2010 03:01:36 PM
Okay, all my posts so far are food so I promise the next one won't be.  This is a strawberry cake (Pillsbury) with home made butter cream icing and a homemade marshmallow fondant.  I'm still new to fondant so it's a bit lumpy (I really need a smoothing tool).  This fondant is super easy to make but can be a little sticky.  I suggest rolling it out on parchment paper and dusting EVERYTHING with powdered sugar. 

1/4 cup butter or criso ( I mixed them and used a bit less than 1/4)
1 (16 ounce) package miniature marshmallows
4 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract\
1 teaspoon Almond extract
2 pounds confectioners' sugar, divided (1 cup is for kneading and rolling fondant)

In a microwave safe bowl heat marshmallows for 1:30 to 2 minutes.  Add water and vanilla and start, on low with mixer.  Add sugar 1 cup at a time until all except 1 cup is used.  Knead butter in for 5 to 10 minutes and wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.

Thanks for looking I hope you give it a try.

29  COOKING / Dessert / Hedgehog cake on: September 15, 2010 05:58:55 PM
I made this for a party last year and never knew how to post until now! I made a chocolate cake with caramel icing and carved it into this cute little guy. The eyes and nose are Reese's Pieces and the quills are pocky.  I also made the mushrooms out of a stiff meringue that I piped onto a cookie sheet and baked at a low temp. and paited with food coloring for the dots.  I hope you like it!
