Sheep, I love the 4x6 art you did!  Its so lovely!  I'm so intrigued by the alcohol and sharpies technique you mentioned!  And those Inkodye prints you did are so flipping cool!  I actually like the film strip one.  Its really cool!

Omg, I totally need a pair of chub rubbers (teehee, chub rubbers) like that, Kookaloo_Starr!  They are so sassy!!

So I got a batch of jerky done on Tuesday for my dad for his birthday.

I use this recipe:  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/jerky-lovers-jerky---sweet-hot-and-spicy/
I've made it so many times, and its soooo good! 

Here's the meat on the trays before being dehydrated.

I have another batch in the dehydrator, as well, for my husband and me (the non-spicy variety, since I'm a wuss.  Which means I just don't add the pepper flakes.)

I also decided, on a whim, to make my best friend some magnets for her fridge:

I just happened to have a bag of wood discs that my mom gave me that she got from someone else who was getting rid of bunch of crafting stuff.  I started by painting the edges white, then used my Elmer's paint pen to make the stripes. I then cut out circles in one of my destroyed books (I'm still working on a destroyed copy of the The Hobbit).  I distressed the edges of the paper with Distressing Ink, then went along the edge with the paint pen and wrote on the letter and added dots.  I then mod podged the circle to the wood disc, then put a couple more coats of mod podge to seal it.  Then I gorilla glued on some magnets.  Weee!

362  Rainbow Felt Garlands! Weeee! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by jillybeans on: May 22, 2012 10:35:05 AM
I wasn't sure if this was the place to put it, so feel free to move this, dear mod, if its not right!  *hugs!*

I had fun with felt a few weeks ago!  I claimed mama24boyz for felt bunting for her daughter's birthday party (which is an awesome rainbow theme!  Love it!).  I knew I had load of felt at home, and I was not disappointed, because the only color I didn't have on hand, was yellow!  Yay for destashing!

As mentioned, the triangles are made of felt, just the regular by-the-yard craft kind.  I used an entire package of jumbo rick rack, and hot glued the felt onto it.  When I was cutting these triangles, I didn't really have a plan of attack, and just cut out a bunch of each color.  So after the first one was done, I had enough triangles already cut out to make a second one!  So I ran to walmart, and got another package of rick rack (of course it was shorter than the one I got from Jo-Ann's, that's how they get ya!) and whipped up another one.

In my bunting research adventures, I stumbled onto a great tutorial on how to make a rainbow ruffly garland, and I instantly fell into love with it and had to make it as an extra to go along with the others.

It was super easy, even for my extremely bad sewing skills. 

The tutorial can be found here:  http://sweetlittlesmoothie.blogspot.com/2011/03/everythings-coming-up-rainbows.html

Thanks for looking!

what is the fireworks card made from it looks so cool.

I have no idea, but its so cool! 

pilarfarmer sent me a couple ATC's "just because" for being an organizer.  Awww!  Thanks Pilar! 

The buttons are metal, so the ATCs are HEAVY!  I loooooove buttons soooo much!  Yay!  Oh, and after I got these, I sorted out all my Es and Js and I have exactly the same amount of each!  LOL!  How perfect is that?

I received from gala_apples this weekend!  Yay!  She claimed me for my E theme, and also sent me an extra!

Tada!  I love the colors of both of them, though the firework one has to be my favorite of the two.  It is so cool!  Thanks, gala!

I'm pretty sure I have more E's than J's!  Jeez, looks like everyone loves my husband more than me.  ^_^  He is pretty awesome, though.  So I can't complain too much.

Oh wow, that is so pretty, always!  What a lucky partner!

I have a few projects to share, which are some swap packages my partner's have received in the OWS round 82 swap:

To mama24boyz for her daughter's bday party (which is such a cute rainbow theme!):

I made her 2 of these rainbow felt bunting

I also had so much felt on hand, that I decided to make up this ruffled felt garland as an extra.

I also have a box full of curly ribbons that I made up last year, so I figured I'd also throw in a cute little hair accessory for her, too!  ^_^

To MollyGirl:

A due date shirt that MollyGirl had found on etsy and that I recreated for her.  I made the image in word, and then the design was freezer paper stenciled onto the shirt. 

To phoenixfiredesigns:

Shirts!  Both were done using the freezer paper stencil method, but I used discharge paste instead of fabric paint this time.  For those of you unfamiliar with discharge paste, its something you dab on and then iron and it lifts the color of the shirt out (similar to bleach, but heat activates it and its so much easier to control).

I also have all my ATCs for April's ATC swap to show you all, but instead of posting all of those here, I will give you the link to their thread.  I made these between 4/1/12 to 5/13/12.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408876.0

What a clever November card!  I'm a huge fan of leaves!

I received from pilarfarmer!  She claimed me for my vintage fashion theme, and also sent a couple extras for my E&J themes as well!

Tada!  The picture is of Pilar's mom and sister on their way to church!  Isn't that awesome!  I love old photos!  And the E and J have bits of gold/silver leafing on 'em (not that you can tell from the scan).  Ooooo shiny!  Thanks Pilar, I love 'em all!

I should get all my Es and Js together and see what I have!  I'm probably getting a pretty good collection of 'em!

I received this week from flyingpigs24 for my people w/ crowns theme, artist choice/objects w/ legs theme, and my artist's choice theme (and she sent me an extra, too!)

tada!  Aren't the wonderful?  The top right one is written in a shiny pen, so it didn't scan very well but it says: "worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles but empties today of its strength".  Thanks flyingpigs24!  They are so wonderful!

370  Re: Wicked Forest Altered Matchbox GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by jillybeans on: May 10, 2012 07:56:05 AM
I received from the ever fabulous Noooitaremybirthday yesterday and omg is it awesome!!  She said she went with my lush and green theme, and my forest critters theme.  Take a look!

"All things truly wicked start from innocence" - Ernest Hemingway.  Love the quote, it is wickedly perfect!  The sides of the box are glittery stripes.  I LOVE b&w stripes, something I don't think I told her. 

The back!

Pull out the box and you have this wonderful watercolor leaf wrapped drawer.  It is so pretty!

Pull the papers aside and you find that little forest critters have nestled inside the little box!  Little forest critters . . . and something more wicked!

Here they are out to say hello!  Look at this sweet little fellows!  Omg, isn't Nooo an amazing artist!!! 

Flip 'em over and you can see that these little critters have a dark side.  When night comes their wickedness comes out!  hehe!  Such a crazy cute idea!

Thanks so much, Nooo!  I absolutely adore my new little wicked forest matchbox!
