Here's a right-side up pic of Jane and her thumbtack minions. Cheesy The shiny glare is from the resin coating to keep her shiny and happy.

45  1,000 Origami Cranes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by batgirl on: February 23, 2011 11:17:10 AM
I have always wanted to fold 1,000 cranes. I finally took a little class on folding cranes out of PMC, and finally mastered the crane, so I decided to get some paper and start folding. After a long and freezing winter of hiding from the snow, here are my 1,000 Cranes!

47  Chinese New Year Cupcakes in Dessert by batgirl on: February 12, 2011 08:48:45 PM
I'm not much of a baker, but I was invited to a Chinese New Year party and I decided to make themed cupcakes. I used regular white cake mix with red food coloring, dark chocolate frosting, gold wrappers, and red "cake glitter", and made some decorative pics. It all looks a bit pink in the pictures, but it was red, and they were quite popular at the party. Smiley  Happy year of the rabbit!

I finished some items!

I made curtains for my living room! I am very proud of my thriftiness, I used clearance shower curtains from Target, just cut in half and added a rod pocket, $21 to cover 5 windows!


And, I made Valentines for chained dogs:

49  Very Proud of my frugal new curtains! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by batgirl on: January 30, 2011 11:49:59 AM
I made curtains for my living room. I have resisted having them, but for 2 reason I concluded that I needed them. One, you can see through my blinds at night, and two, Milou has decided it's his job to stare out the window and bark at anything that moves. Also, I only have single glazed windows, so it may help keep it warm in here.

The problem is that I have 5 windows, so even cheap fabric adds up, and finding 10 matching panels that I like in a thrift store  is almost impossible.

So, I was in Target and found some clearance shower curtains, and voila! I cut them in half, sewed a rod pocket, and made curtains for $21! It would not have been my first choice of fabrics but I quite like it. I will have to get used to how much darker the room seems, but it will definitely give me privacy, and hopefully some bark-prevention.

Here they are:

50  Valentines for Chained Dogs in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by batgirl on: January 30, 2011 11:38:04 AM
I found out about this cool project through a local pet photographer, and decided to whip up a few Valentines really quickly. They are sending Valentines, along with information and coupons for dog food & treats, to homes with chained or penned dogs, in the hopes of educating people about more humane ways to care for their pets.  I altered some Valentines from the $1 bins at Michaels. I put a little chain across the two hearts and wrote "unchain my heart" and added pictures cut out from Bark magazine, with the caption "dogs love unconditionally". Inside is another pic and the caption "I <3 you. Please <3 me"
I hope they will help!
