1  COOKING / Dessert / booty and booby cookies on: February 14, 2013 12:21:50 PM

Do these need mature image filters? I mean, they ARE bums, but they're also just cookies! Sexy cookies. I don't know, so I put the filter on anyway just in case.
I made these for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day, but they would be fun any day for anyone who likes cookies and also appreciates a nice bum (which, let's face it, is pretty much everyone). Plus, they're a BLAST to make. I wanted to put dainty lace and hearts on everything! To make the butt (or chest) shape you just cut off the pointy bottom part of a heart shaped cookie before you bake it and BAM! instant booty! Also, don't try to go to the craft store the day before Valentine's Day to buy a heart shaped cookie cutter. They will be completely sold out. I had to buy a gumpaste calla lily making kit just to get the heart shaped cutter in the box. The things I do because I love my boyfriend. And butts.

Here's the sugar cookie recipe I used:
the icing is royal icing with Wilton tips #1 and #3.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / scratch tickets on: February 14, 2013 11:40:28 AM

Instead of making cheesy Valentine coupons I made cheesy scratch tickets! They're much more fun. All I did was make a template, print out the tickets, cover them in a single layer of clear packaging tape (REALLY important otherwise it won't scratch off properly), and painted over the words in a mixture of 1 part dish soap and 2 parts acrylic until it was opaque. My photoshop skills are limited, but I included the template I made in case anyone needs a last minute gift. Just add whatever you want to give them (back scratch, dinner, ect) and print them out. Keep in mind that the paint will probably need multiple layers, so give yourself an hour to paint it all and let it completely dry!

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Hoopla Round 8 Gallery & Discussion on: November 19, 2012 01:07:29 PM

I received my package from twisted5whispers today and I am beyond thrilled with it! She found this painting that I pinned http://pinterest.com/pin/69454019224395713/ and replicated it perfectly. I've already hung him up on my wall and he makes me smile every time I look at him. Thank you so much!
4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Hoopla Round 8 - Signups 9/28 to 10/25, claims 10/1 to 10/31 on: October 25, 2012 02:59:19 AM
I claim Dr. Craft for retro fruit, send by Nov. 15th.
I'm Cait, a recent college grad and new resident of beautiful San Diego, CA. I share a home with my boyfriend and our fat, spoiled cat, Artoo Detoo. My style is feminine, kitschy, vintage/retro, with bold patterns and bright colors (my favorite colors are pink and orange). I spend a lot of my free time baking, wreaking havoc on the poor houseplants with my black thumb, and pursuing my many crafting interests.

Some ideas to choose from:
-CATS (I'm a huge cat lady)
-Movies: Star Wars, Monty Python (any), Kiki's Delivery Service, The Fifth Element, The Princess Bride
-traditional tattoos
-cute kitsch
-floral, especially lilacs
-bees (realistic, please)
-ocean/nautical inspired
-anything vintage (http://mytransfers.blogspot.com/ is a great resource)
-cute woodland critters
- pinterest inspired http://pinterest.com/kittycait/crafting-inspiration/

Beyond adorable!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Vintage inspired felt flowers on: October 18, 2012 01:47:24 PM

I recently signed up for a hoopla Craftster swap (don't worry, this isn't a spoiler for anyone) and while I was trying to come up with ideas I googled vintage felt embroidery and found this post:http://twinfibers.blogspot.com/2009/11/vintage-felt-embroidery.html and immediately fell in love. I also found a great tutorial on making a dahlia type flower here http://news.holidash.com//2010/04/23/mothers-day-corsage/, and that was all I needed to create this!
Everything is sewn on by hand (no glue anywhere!) and the yellow flowers were made with the same petal shape as the dahlia flower, just slightly rounded and sewn on differently, and the small purple and blue flowers were made with circles. It was a lot easier and quicker than I thought it would be, a little under 4 hours. At first I was disappointed with the black background but it has started to grow on me. I thought about picking up a pretty cream color felt at the store before I came up with this but said to myself "I'm never going to use this" so I left it behind. Just goes to show that you should always take every opportunity to hoard crafting supplies because you WILL need it SOMEDAY!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: First time bookbinding on: October 17, 2012 11:49:27 PM
Oh my gosh. My sister would go crazy for that! She is a constant list writer (like me) and she loves mushrooms and bats! Fantastic job on the book. It does not look like you were new to book binding. You must be a natural!!  Grin

Thanks! I'm also a big list writer, this book already has my to-do list, a grocery list, and a goal list. You should give bookbinding a go sometime and make yourself a nice book of lists!
P.S. I love your user name. I almost named my cat Vinz Clortho before deciding on Artoo Detoo. Smiley

I love it! I just started watching Black Books thanks to Netflix and I'm already a huge fan. I would love to see more of these!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / First time bookbinding on: October 16, 2012 06:36:15 PM

covered in cotton quilting fabric from my stash.

the sparkly bat end paper is my favorite part

Ever since a bookbinding tutorial came across my Pinterest feed (http://pinterest.com/pin/69454019224555570/) I have been obsessed with it. I watched a few YouTube videos and read a couple blogs on it until it got to the point where I felt like I just NEEDED to try it. Last night I went to a craft store to pick up the paper I needed, a bone folder, and some endpaper, and that was really all I needed. I improvised the rest of the supplies based on what I had at home. All together I think this cost me around $6 or 7 in supplies, not too shabby! Instead of PVA glue I used a combination of glue stick, Mod Podge, and E-6000. I used heavy books instead of clips or clamps to keep things together, waxed embroidery thread with a candle(it felt pretty silly but I had no snags so guess it worked. And it smelled nice!), used a sharp polymer clay tool to poke holes in the signatures, and made the cover out of the back board of the sketchpad I used for the paper. It might seem like there are a lot of specialty tools you need for bookbinding, but as you can see it's all easily improvised! It might not be the proper way, but it was a really fun project and I'm pretty happy with the results.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / slouchy makeup bags on: January 20, 2011 07:31:41 PM

I bought the pattern here http://flossieteacakes.blogspot.com/2010/06/slouchy-make-up-bag-pattern-pdf.html
I'm really thrilled with these. The first one is Japanese import fabric lined with Moda, and the second one is M'Liss, I believe. It takes a little bit of fiddling to sew the zipper on a curve, but all in all it's not too bad.
And a small zippered coin pouch with some Heather Ross fabric.

It's really hard trying to type this post with my cat laying on my arms
