1  Chocolate & Marshmallow Snowman Hats in Dessert by pookieb on: December 12, 2007 08:10:57 PM
I am making these as little goodies for Christmas.

I saw them at Cracker Barrel and thought wow I could easily make those and get many more for my money!!  So I bought all the supplies tonight...large marshmallows, chocolate sandwich cookies, and milk chocolate.  I have a few questions though...
1. How far ahead of time do you think I should/could make them (as I don't want to wait until the last minute...I'll be making cupcakes then =P)
2. Should I put them in goodie bags or a tin/box?
3. Dip cookie and marshmallow separate and then stick together or attach with a layer of chocolate and then dip?

I'm also asking over at the Bakespace forums =D

When I opened the front door to get the mail the box was blocking it, lol.  Thanks stupid postman.  Anyway I just about peed myself!  Here is some eye candy-ness  Grin

This is what I saw when I opened the box. 

I totally thought for a second this was a dog shirt and I was all OMG it's way too small!

Hello Kitty immediately HAD to try everything on!

How friggin sweet!  I need to make her a bow to match  Wink

(blurry) Back view.  The skirt is a little long but it's ok...it's the cutest thing ever!

Ooh and look she sent me a skelly!  Hello Kitty thinks he's for her.

Overview of all my loot!  clothes for miss kitty, skelly, largish coin purse shaped zipper bag (I use it for the stuff I usually put in pockets in my purse like lip balm and pill box), cuuuute purple crushed velvet lined pumpkin bag, candyyyy and some little rubber mices.

The mices.  I love the white one and he looks like he might glow in the dark  Shocked

The buttons on the bags...the spider web and candy corn ones are glittery!

Just wanted to show everyone the pics I have of the lolli covers and the cookies I made =D 

They're just plain old sugar cookies that I pressed candy corn in to as soon as they left the oven.  Thanks to Martha's Halloween issue!!!  I'm being asked to make more for a family get-together on the 27th =P

5  Cocker Spaniel Sunflower or Lion ideas? in Halloween Costumes by pookieb on: August 22, 2007 10:36:28 PM
What would work best for a mane?  I was thinking of making one of those ribbon collars with different shades of yellow and orange. 
Also a good idea for a sunflower petals to go around the head?  i was thinking maybe felt but would it be sturdy enough to stand up?  I also thought about using wire to stiffen but i don't want to hurt my baby =(

This is a sample of the ribbon collar idea for the lion's mane: http://www.fouronthefloorpetwear.com/fancy-dog-collars.html

And here is my precious Sunny.  Can you tell why I immediately thought lion or sunflower?

6  Skinny Tie Camera Strap in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pookieb on: August 11, 2007 08:59:17 AM
I got a hand me down camera from a friend (albeit the best hand me down ever!) and had no camera strap to lug it around.  I asked around about handmade camera straps and suddenly it came to me...a tie!  So without further ado here is my swanky skinny tie camera strap!

Close-up of hardware

other side

Just a square on the sewing machine to hold it together about half-way between the fold and ends of the tie.

Crappy action shot.  Hey!  I only have one nice camera right now x.x

The strap is reversible allowing you to purposely let the tie ends hang down or attempt to tuck them under (which doesn't work as well as planned).  I bought my tie at http://www.solidcolorneckties.com and the D rings are from http://www.cdwplus.com!  The lanyard hooks are just from Michaels*.  There are things I would probably change if I made another one but I definately love it's uniqueness and I get lots of comments!

*Story about buying them* I went in Michaels specifically looking for these for my strap.  After looking in the lanyard aisle and the jewelry aisle with no luck I asked the closest employee "Do you guys have lanyard hooks?"  She gave me the most blank look and said "Umm...what do they look like?"  Now I dunno if you've ever had to EXPLAIN the details of a lanyard hook but it's kinda hard.  You just sort of expect people to know what it is...especially somebody in their 20s working at Michaels!  She ended up asking another girl who said "Oh yeah we have those!" and led me right to the lanyard aisle where I had overlooked them.

7  poo shaped cat toy in Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions by pookieb on: March 18, 2007 09:56:27 AM
I've been making felt cat toys with catnip and selling them at my aunt's shop.  I did hearts for v-day and I'm doing bunnies for Easter.  I thought it would be cute to make cute little poos.  I probably won't sell them but I'll definately be giving them to my friends who are into cute japanese stationery characters.  Does anyone have a pattern?  Here's the look I'm going for:

8  Hanging bottle vase in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by pookieb on: July 12, 2005 10:47:46 AM
I searched for this but couldn't find anything.  I need tips on making hanging bottle vases.  I've seen them in artisan shops and trendy downtown boutiques.  They have a long coiled wire hanger and the wire is wrapped around small colored glass bottles.  You fill the bottle, hang it and put flowers in the jar.  I need tips like what guage wire to use and so on.  Or just a tutorial.  Sorry this pic is so small but it's all I could find.
