1  Teacher Appreciation 3D Cookie in Dessert by RetroGypsy on: May 14, 2015 10:41:53 AM
Hey All! It is Teacher Appreciation time and I've made my Midget's teacher a couple of things, one being crafty and this one being edible  Wink I knew I wanted to make some sort of cute sugar cookie something-something. Them, looking at my cookie cutters, I thought why not create a more dimensional treat. Then I went to work, using  Sugarbelle's sugar cookie recipe, as well as her icing recipe. I made the cookies, iced them the next day and then I did get a wee bit impatient so it didn't come out as perfect as I would have liked.

Well here it is...

Thank you to all Teachers!

2  I'd spend all 9 lives with you in Needlework: Completed Projects by RetroGypsy on: May 13, 2015 08:07:52 PM
Hello craftsters!!! So I have been away from this fun and great playground for a little while. I am officially baaaaaaack.  Wink Please indulge me as I share a few posts with you of some craftiness I have been up to, as I have not had a chance to play on here, but I have been very busy making stuff, as I have to, or I would go bonkers.

This post is of a kitty that my Hubby's  niece asked that I make for her BFF, which is our other niece.

Thank you for peeking  Cheesy

Are you ready for some more Fall Dia de los Muertos Swappy goodness?!?!  Here we go..

I received my package from Pixie and it's full of great handmade goodies!

Let's begin with a group shot that includes a handpainted canvas of a muerto kitty, a handpainted cross shaped box that had a pair of pretty pretty earrings with little calaveras (skulls), a handpainted calavera and a beautiful black scarf...

Close up of the calavera and the back...

The earrings...

And a close up of the scarf...please take note of the beautiful pattern...looks like papel picado to me! Wish I could knit!

Muchos Gracias por todo Pixie!!!  I love everything and cannot wait to rock the earrings and scarf!  I am headed to the Bay Area Monday where it is raining and a bit chilly so the scarf is definitely being packed up and taken along for the trip. Cheesy

I am absolutely loving our thread!! The pandas are adorable...the Chain Chomp..awesomesauce and Whoah to mthrasher138! Your first attempt at embroidery!?! That is such a wonderful hoop you made for Alliekat! 

Speaking of Miss Alliekat914...I am most pleased to add the awesome 8"  :Dhoop she made for me to our collection! She made me a hoop based on Dr. Who..my fave...#10 and one of his funny Dr. Who-isms! I love the stitching Alliekat914!  They are the most perfect little bitty x's making up my fave guy and the Tardis! Thank you so much...this deserves a very prominent spot on my wall  Grin I did have intentions to take pictures of this beauty outside this morning, but was hijacked all day to go out fishing with the Mr.

The awesomeness...

Loving that Jack hoop!

Awesomeness alert! I received my hoop from WhimsicallyObsessed and it is too perfect. I hope you can tell from these pictures just how perfect it is. I am still not able to get on the comp to share photos from my camera so these are from my phone. Thank you so much WhimsicallyO!!! Excited to see more hoops!!  Grin

10  First Swap for a crafster newbie - A wee bit pic heavy in Needlework: Completed Projects by RetroGypsy on: July 13, 2012 10:17:11 AM
I saw a post by likls, who is fairly new to crafster, with her very first hoop not too long ago. She is too young to officially join in on the hoopla swap fun so I asked if she would be interested in a personal swap with my fella's daughter, new crafster lola, and myself.  likls agreed to the swap so we swapped lists and went to town.  Everyone has received their hoops so it is safe to post. I've been a little late to post pics because we are in the middle of a big move from Las Vegas to Texas..wish us luck!

I created a hoop with a combo theme of her love for OKGO and nail polish...


lola went with a combo of OKGO colors and ugly sweater theme...

I dig how she used sequence..cool look and new twist.

We received these coolio hoops from likls...
a cow theme for lola...

a Dr. Who bowtie theme for me

Thank you for the swap likls!!! We were happy to be part of your first swap here on crafster!  Cheesy
