Got my second package today & its awesome.  I felt like it was already my birthday!

They went with my moon theme.  I got a great clock, altered book that I am obsessed with looking at, sticker of the moon phases, a beautiful sticker that is mesmerizing with a lady in front of a big bright beautful moon.   Also I received some starry extras (see stars go with moons, just try to look up at the moon with out seeing a couple of stars too!).  I got an amazing star pin that is felted with buttons & in PURPLE & SILVER!!!  Also got a wonderful perfect sized lil star journal.

 Grin YEAH!!!  I had a wonderful package waiting on me when I got home today!

 Shocked There was so much stuff in this box! & shelikesstars is awesome!  she even crafted everything in the colors of my house (purple, silver, & black)! 

In this box there was a couple of other boxes & a package.  The package contained a CD with star songs...I had to laugh, because great minds think alike!  As she will soon learn, I also made a star song CD!  We even had two songs that were the same.  Too funny.

There was a package of star stickers which I want to put all over the place & a star filled with star bath confetti!  Trust- I need the relaxation of a nice bath tonight! (12 hour days stink!)

In the PURPLE chinese take out box there was a bag of what I think was the lavender chocolate stars, but infortunately the Carolina heat got to it.

The biggest box was a beautiful painted box with stars on it.  Inside were star shaped coasters (with felt on the bottom!) & a bunch of painted star magnets that I love.  GLITTER IS AWESOME!

Also there were some BEAUTIFUL notecards that she made.  I'm not sure I want to send them.  Have to be something special.

Thank you so much!  You truly made my day.  Can't wait to send yours.  As soon as I finish the last thing....

Ok so I had today off & was feeling like trying something new....  now I have something new to be addicted to making...CANDLES.

Made 9 votives today that are ORANGE so I thought I'd post them here.  Actually I made them orange because they are scented a yummy pumpkin pie scent.  I'm burning one now & love it!

(I got the fragrance & the supplies from CraftersTouch - http://www.crafterstouch.com/ )

Any way thought I'd share, maybe inspire someone else to give candles a try... I swear if you all could smell what I am smelling you would.  Now I'm dreaming up all kinds of scent color combos & thinking I want to try to make on that is layered in colors & scents.....

Ok so I guess orange isn't that bad.  I found this fabric in the clearance section of JoAnn's yesterday & immediately thought of a friend, who happens to be having a birthday soon... so I added appliqued a mermaid from some other fabric I had (she is ALWAYS in the ocean, even today when I saw her she was on her way over to swim in the ocean).  Anyway I zipped the fabric up into a cover for a composition notebook, which can be replaced if she fills it up.  & she can wash the cover if ever needed.  & its ORANGE.

close up of the mermaid...

I think I'm getting the hang of the whole applique thing.  Hope she likes it.

26  my purple quilt.. a first for me in Quilting: Completed Projects by AliBeachGrl on: July 30, 2006 08:48:10 AM
So my mom is addicted to quilting & had been bugging me to try it.  I started last fall sometime & just finished recently.  My mother actually did the "quilting"part since she has a long arm thing.  I pieced it all together.  So here it is..

This shows the back...& the design my mom used to quilt it all together.  I think she called it stipling.

It was kinda fun.. although the length of time it took almost did me in. Might have to try something smaller next time. (This one is queensized!)

Ok so here is my first color craft along posting.... (I love this whole idea & have loved the stuff I have seen!)

I found this lil wooden star shaped mirror for cheap....

I painted it & here is it.  I'm thinking of adding glitter to it.  Maybe coat all the yellow parts in a gold glitter.  But here is it as is.  My lil yellow star....it'll remind me to shine when I see my image within!

28  Goddess Tray....with a resin technique question in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by AliBeachGrl on: July 08, 2006 01:32:19 PM
So I have been collecting pictures for several months now of goddesses & the such.  Today while I was checking for something else in the craftstore (isn't it always that way?  Go in for one lil thing & walk out with a whole buncha stuff you didn't eve know you needed!) I found this wooden tray for 40% off.  So I grabbed some purple paint & painted it.  Then I glued a few of the lovely ladies (I have a ton of these lil pics!) on the bottom.

close up of some of the pics...just cuz I love 'em!

So I think I will love it like this for a lil bit, but I want to put some glitter & maybe a couple of other trinkets on it & coat it with a resin or varnish type stuff.  Any one have any tips or tricks on using the resin?  I can read the directions, but I have a feeling someone on here can give me the inside scoop!  I so love Craftster!

Thanks in advance for any advice or warnings!

29  yup.. I'm addicted. Purple bags. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by AliBeachGrl on: June 27, 2006 08:52:00 PM
So I think I might be obsessed with Amy Butler bag patterns at the moment.  Tonight I just finished one of the In Town bags... the one without the drawstring.

& added some extra compartments to the pockets...

It was my first time adding a snap to anything.  I wasn't into the button closure the pattern suggested.

I made the Nappy bag this past weekend, without the bottle pockets.  

The fabric is my favorite part.  I'm not sure what it is exactly, but it feels like it might be water resistant even.  Best part... THE GLITTER in it!!!

This bag is big & seems like it would hold the world.  Great for beach, shopping, & yeah the diaper bag it was designed to be.  Easy instructions too.

Had to share the coin purse that I sent Girlygirl.

I quilted the fabrics then sewed it all up & added a silver follow your dreams charm & keroppi shrinky dink charm that I made with jump rings.
