21  I gave an Ed Emberley tattoo in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: July 01, 2010 11:06:23 AM
Ed Emberely is the reason I ever picked up a pencil. I spent every single day at the living room coffee table with 'The Big Orange Drawing Book'. If I wasn't sitting with the drawing book I was watching the 'Squiggles, Dots and Lines' VHS. I had every single one of his books. My favorite was always the orange ones. Then as my childhood years went past, so did Ed Emberely. Even when I wasn't drawing serious stuff, I always found myself drawing a skeleton with a top hat and a cane. It always progressed through the years with more realistic bones. Or if the was a spare piece of chalk on the tray in high school I'd scribble out a UFO.
In about 2007, after probably about 14 years of not remembering Emberley had existed, I was cruising through Barnes & Noble and I had noticed in the kids section, his big Halloween drawing book. I gasped. I sat down with it and looked at all the step by step drawing instructions on how to make, witches, cats, haunted houses, UFOs and that skeleton with the top hat and cane. My love of Ed Emberely was rekindled...

And so forth... I KNOW alot of people don't like 'scratchers' or non-professionals. But, my friend asked me to give him a tattoo. I was like 'gee whiz'! So, I asked him if I could do my favorite guy, rich uncle skeleton. I was given a professional gun and every thing was sanitary and dandy.
Here it is!! And, let me tell you, tattooing is not easy!

Whadaya think ?  Shocked

22  Crochet Neo Victorian Style Fingerless Lace Gloves in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: June 17, 2010 11:19:10 AM
Check out these super cool cuffs. I thought they were going to be difficult to make, but nope, they were pretty quick and easy. I used skinny merino/acrylic yarn and the little bitty B hook.
I grabbed a bunch of yarn last night so I can make 'em in a skillion more colors!

I just love making these fantastic sets. They're so cute. This one is 100% cotton.
I made this one a tad bit longer than the others and the booties are a great finishing touch. Dontcha think ?

24  Strawberry Blackberry Buckle in Dessert by Hellzapopper on: June 02, 2010 09:41:52 PM
I stumbled upon a fantastic looking recipe for Blackberry buckle. Ever since I saw the recipe, I thought about it everyday. Today I finally gave in and made it.
I didn't have the lemon juice on hand, so I used half of a teaspoon of vinegar. I was also short of big sugar crystals, which I think is pretty crucial for texture and taste. I sprinkled regular sugar on it anyhow. And, instead of 4 cups of blackberries, I only used 2 cups and another 2 cups of strawberries Roll Eyes

25  Card wallets/Cellphone cases in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: May 27, 2010 11:58:26 AM
I've been whipping out these mini clutches. They're fun to make and great for summer when you don't wanna carry around a big bulky bag.
They're made with mostly the bullion stitch and accented with vintage buttons.

So, I've been crocheting these earrings up the wazoo lately.
I thought I' share a few.
The backs of them are reinforced so they aren't too flimsy.They're super fun to make.
The first set glows in the dark! Neato, right ?



Thanks for takin' a gander! Roll Eyes

The pattern can be found on ravelry as the 'sleeper set'. But not for the hat. I just whipped that up to match! Grin

I made some beanies while listening to the buddy holly collection in it's entirety... twice. They're not as wacky as my other hats but I like 'em.

30  SCRUMBLING beanie in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: May 05, 2010 10:22:42 AM
I love making freeform stuff. I used bulky yarn this time, which I don't normally use. I like it alright! It was alpine wool and acrylic. I like to keep the crazy on one side because I really like a disconnected look.

Thanks fer lookin'!
