1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Baby Clothes into Doxie Clothes on: October 07, 2012 06:38:59 AM
I'll never understand why buying clothes for small dogs gets so expensive! Our poor little short haird doxie gets so cold in the winter but I can't afford to buy clothes especially for doxies. So what to do...?

How about turn some baby clothes into doxie clothes?! Smiley

(I got the idea from this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=338830.0)

I discovered that Dylan wears a size 6-9 months... With a few modifications.

The first recon I tried was a fleecy hoodie.

Here it is before:


And here it is after:


(Extra long winded post with more pictures on my blog: http://wondrasworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/baby-clothes-recon.html )

The next was a long-sleeved Halloween shirt:

What it looks like finished:


(On my blog: http://wondrasworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/im-batty-about-you.html)

I freaking love them. Smiley (And Dylan does too!)

If I'm haunting the baby section at our local department store for my dog, is it time to think about having kids? Lol.

Anyone interested in another round of this? I figure now would be a great time for some photos! Smiley Possibly with a late November/early December send out? Just a thought.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap? on: April 16, 2009 02:50:49 PM
Any thoughts on another dishcloth swap? Is it round 9? Smiley
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / WitchyBelle4u2's ATC Gallery on: April 09, 2009 10:25:40 AM
It's been...erm...forever since I even THOUGHT about making an ATC but I've been off work sick all week, not feeling like doing much else...So...

Three new ATCs:

I made the base for this one in the autumn and never got around to finishing it until now. My dh calls it "my artistic interpretation of a tree in autumn." Meaning it doesn't look anything like a tree but he doesn't want to hurt my feelings. Smiley

This one was made out of different pages from a book about the British coastal villages. I made it because I was freezing and hoping summer would hurry up and arrive already.

And, finally, I had to do something in honour of the holidays so...An ATC Easter egg. Smiley (I was proud of myself for keeping it within the size limits (just) on the first go.)

I'm happy to be back into again and think my ATC supplies might just stay out for a few more days. Smiley
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Twilight Charm Bracelet on: February 22, 2009 02:58:23 PM
I'm going to a Twilight convention next weekend so I plan to spend the next week compulsively crafting for it. Starting with this bracelet. Smiley

It's based on a charm bracelet I've had in my wists. (The original is WAY more gorgeous but also completely out of my price range.) It wasn't planned so I just tried to do my best with what I had laying around. What do you think?

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Watermelon cane into funky necklace (with earrings) on: July 12, 2008 05:20:47 PM
Disclaimer: I'm CRAP with polymer clay. But I enjoy playing with it anyway. Smiley

I was looking at all the nifty projects made from polymer canes and finally decided I had to try it. So I dragged out the box of fimo and started rolling. This was about the time my hubby gave me a sidelong glance and asked, "Are you sure you know what you're doing?" Well. I couldn't lie to the man. So I told him the truth: Nope. Smiley After a couple of minutes of silence-and rolling-he sort of shifted in his seat and said, "Well, um, don't you think that's an awful lot of fimo to waste if it goes wrong?" That's when I pulled out my how-dare-you-question-my-crafting-abilities stare.

To be honest, I was uber nervous myself...But when I showed him the finished project my hubby grinned and sort of giggled. He pronounced it "Not bad at all." That alone is enough for me to count it as a sucess! Smiley Anywho...Since it's too late to make a long story short...My first attempt at a polymer cane!  (Oh, and two earrings I just had to make to go with it.)

The necklace fits perfectly on my collarbone which makes me happy. Smiley

And here's the roll, cut into pieces. Should've taken one as I was working but I never expected it to work.

You probably can't see it but the red and the darker green have glitter in them. Comments and suggestions would be very helpful!  Grin
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / ...Is it Fall yet? (The Swap) on: July 10, 2008 03:51:30 AM
I always get a bit twitchy this time of the year, wishing Fall would just hurry up already!! Anyone else the same? Wanna make a swap of it?

I'm thinking changing leaves, back-to-school, acorns, conkers, apples, football games, lovely shades of brown & gold, etc...
9  COOKING / Dessert / The Great British 99 on: July 06, 2008 09:59:01 AM
Okay...So this is my first post on this board so I'm pretty nervous. Also, I'm pretty useless in the kitchen so I'm extremely proud of anything I make that doesn't collapse or smoke. Smiley 

I saw my_butterfly's post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246548.0 about ice cream cone cupcakes and I've been dying to try this out since. I use to love having these in elementary school! But, of course, I'm in Britain now so I had to give it a little update! The 99 (as in that's how much it costs: 99 pence) if you don't know, is a vanillla soft serve ice cream cone with a Cadbury's Flake bar stuck in it.

Here's what a proper one looks like:

And here's my version:

Enough for all:

The ice cream cones are filled with a vanilla sponge and topped with vanilla icing with 1/3 of a flake stuck in the side. My MIL declared them absolutely adorable and my husband said he never wanted to know how many calories were in them. Smiley What do you think?
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Its life Jim...But not as we MOO it on: June 09, 2008 07:32:53 PM
As I've said many times, my hubby is AMAZING. Leave him home alone with my polymer clay too long and what happens? STAR TREK COWS.

(Yes, I have an obsession with cows...And I'm not ashamed!)

Captain Cud and Mr. Moock. (His names, not mine!) They're about 7inches tall.

And don't look now but there's a devious looking cow sneaking up behind them! And he's naked! Yikes!  Shocked

What do you think? I'm totally jealous of his talent!
