1  COOKING / Dessert / Epic Mothers Day Cake I Made On A Whim. Many Pictures! on: May 14, 2012 09:43:26 PM
I didn't know what to get my mom for mothers day and finally she told me she wanted a cake so I made her a CAKE! This is also my first post here in the cooking boards. I got up Sunday morning and decided to make a rainbow layer cake for my mom. I just used a regular yellow cake mix and used food coloring and strawberry mixed with vanilla frosting. Here are the many pics of the cake. Its 5 layers.
All the colors.

This was my first time making a rainbow cake and my first layer cake and my first time trying to do that with the icing. The icing was really to runny to do that right. After making it I didn't even try any of it until today because I had already spent so much time with it. lol Thanks for looking!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 4 of the same hat on: March 12, 2012 01:57:10 PM
Because making 7 hats for Christmas wasn't enough hats I've been making more.

I first found this pattern because my sister wanted me to make her a slouchy hat. I picked this pattern because its slouchy and looked like something I could knit. It is Slouched Tuva Hat  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/slouched-tuva-hat

So I started with the first hat for my sister

Knitting this hat sucked because Lucci Yarn Sequins I put with Berroco Vintage DK is big regular sharp sequins. So it took me a lot longer to knit this because of the sequins.

Here is the second Tuva which I made for myself.

Then I made a pink shiny one for my friend Aimee. I forgot to take a pic before giving it to her this is a pic she took.

Lastly I made a black shiny one for my friend Tracy

This picture looks funny because I photo shopped it on my tablet to make it brighter.

The last 2 knit up quick because I knit them with worsted weight. I just used the I Love This Yarn Sparkle because a lot of friends that I make things for our vegan and don't want things made out of any animal fibers so I have several skeins of this.

If anyone wants to make this pattern I would say go for it is easy and I really like my hat. Its good for bad hair days. lol
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP My dog puked on my knitting!!! on: February 16, 2008 11:24:45 AM
This morning I was working on the scarf that is my first real knitting project on needles. I've just been looming knitting for awhile. I've been working on this for over a month when I have time like in my classes that I don't have to pay attention to.
I went and sat on the couch with my mom and the dog jumps up there and pukes all over my lap and knitting!!

So now I don't know what to do I want to try to save the yarn. It sitting in a bucket of cold water not moving. Its di.Ve'
Autunno Aran / 10 ply Merino. I'm just so sad because its such a pretty yarn and I want to save it all I can thing of to do is try to get the puke out and let it soak and slowly frog it while wet and then let it dry and put it into a hank.

Does anyone have any ideas for me?? I would be greatfull!

This is what it looks like. It so pretty and squishy soft. Please help me save it!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Gems, jewels, and cameos. Sounds pricey doesn't it. New Necklaces (pic heavy) on: December 09, 2007 12:26:46 PM
These are 4 necklaces I made. They are inspired by the work of Tarina Tarantino. I love all her work but I am a jobless bum right now and can't not afford any of it so I decided to make some things with stuff I already had.

I am not sure if this one is done or not

5  Illinois / Illinois: Central / I might be moving to Bloomington.... on: October 13, 2007 10:24:44 PM
I might be moving to Bloomington. I have test for a job there on Tuesday and if I get the job I will be living there. I live in southern IL now and I'm looking for some crafty friends in the central IL area. I have a lot of family there but no one any where near my age to hang out with.
Does anyone know of any craft groups that are going on or any one just wanna hang out sometime??.....man I sound like a loser! lol
6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 19 ENTRIES / Queen of Wind chimes!!!! on: July 05, 2007 12:30:04 AM
I really like wind chimes and I really like wearing stuff that makes noise.
I took a cheap wind chime I bought the other day at the dollar store and made it into a tiara. Wire, beads, and things left over from the wind chime.
So here are some not so great webcam pics.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I have a manly job swap. on: May 27, 2007 02:31:41 PM
I thought of this idea while I was at work. I work as a welder.  I was wondering if there are any other craft women on here that have a manly job and work mainly with men. I am one of the only 2 girls that work where I work and sometimes it gets a little lonely. So I was thinking about as swap for other women in this situation.

Things that could be made I was thinking could be girl looking tool belts, costumed painted tool set, work gloves made girly things like that. I know I would like a girly welding hat that doesn't look stupid.

Another reason I thought of this was because it is so hard for me to find things for me to do my job right all the clothing have to wear is to big or doesn't fit right and I am tired of it. I can never get gloves that fit right because they are all to big!

Any other ladies out game for this??
