1  Re: Chocolate Polka Dot B-Day Cake in Dessert by Lootyaj on: September 07, 2008 10:41:55 AM
Well, the cake was a big hit!  I only used one box of yellow cake mix, but still did the three layers.  I didn't read your post about the two boxes until I had already baked two layers, so I was a little afraid after I saw how itty bitty the layers were, but they turned out perfect (soo moist and just the right browning!).  I had planned on taking pictures of the process, but my brother-in-law showed up unexpected, so I forgot. 

I loved the frosting I used, it was soo yummy and easy to work with.  One of the reviews said they had a problem with it 'melting' when left out, but I did not experience that problem.  Here is the link to the recipe..  http://www.recipezaar.com/89207  I also used the marshmallow fondant, which worked very well.

On to the pictures!  I forgot to put wax paper under it, so please forgive the messy bottom! 

She absolutely loved it!  She went around showing it off to everyone and made sure that I took lots of pictures.  We had a slumber party at the Holiday Inn last night, and the cake was a hit, and a great source of entertainment...

Thank you HHJamie
 for the great source of inspiration!  This was my first real decorated cake, and I really enjoyed making it.  Now I have another birthday for my son in two weeks, and have got to make a pokemon cake.... Smiley

Oh, I'm so sorry it took so long to post pics, but Wildfyre sent Jolee and Leo an awesome package!

Here is everything all packaged up!  Its color coded too, pink for Jolee and blue for Leo!  Smiley Smiley

You can see Jolee's bone and the new tug toy they got!  They love them!

Now, opening packages for two boxers and taking pictures is a hard thing to do!  First, Wildfyre sent an awesome octopus, you can see it in the picture above better...

Leo really loved it.   He loved it so much that he had to rip it to shreds, unforturnatly.  But, I did get some good shots of the two of them playing with it first...

See, Wildfyre, he EATS WALLS, the poor octopus never had a chance... Smiley

They both got new bandanas, which are awesome!  

Some yummy treats, which I didn't get a pic of.  A new treat bag, that works awesome!

Here is Jolee trying to take off her new collar.... Smiley  She hasn't been wearing one, so she had to get used to the feeling again.  

I haven't gotten a pic of Leo's collar yet, but it is an awesome camo that matches his bandana.

My personal fave is the paw mitt that she sent.  I am always trying to find things to wipe off their feet, and this works perfect.  I can get it wet if I need to and it hangs right by the back door!  

Thank you Thank you Thank you Wildfyre!  Jolee and Leo loved everything!

I received a great package from Jazzybelle today!  She did an awesome job picking out things that I would like, everything is perfect!  The first thing I saw was this headband.  She picked my "grunge" theme and I totally love it!

I love it so much that I had to go change so that I would match nicely. Smiley (forgive the red eyebrows and greasy face, today was wax day)

She also sent me another headband in brown.  She picked my "tattoo" theme, and it is just beatiful!  I could never make my stitches look so nice...My camera doesn't take very good closeups  Undecided

We also decided to do a mini personal swap.  She sent me the cutest pair of button earings evar!

Thank you so much Jazzybelle!  Everything was perfect and I enjoyed crafting for you as well.  Thank you bruisedpeach22 for organizing this swap, I can now see why there has been 19 of them!! So fun!

What a cute snugglebum!  I bet he has sweet puppy kisses!  I hear you on the size of his paws.....  Here is our Leo when we first brought him home.  He was 14 weeks old (that was in February)

His paws were AS BIG AS our Jolee's, and she's 3... LOL  And now he is 8 months old and measures almost the same a she does now.... Smiley

Aww, what sweet furbabies!  I wanna kiss em all!  Every night we have a routine, we put the skin kids to bed, then we put our furkids to bed.  Leo goes in his kennel, and Jolee gets to go into the bedroom with him (which is usually off limits unless a grown up is there Smiley )  Last night I took some pics of Jolee in her favorite spot.....MY side of the bed. 

Isn't it cute how she gets her head right on the pillow and looks all comfy?!

Oh, yeah.  Don't mind the bra... :/  I'm going to try to get some good pics of the "Brat" Leo.  He's just a puppy, and puppies are annoying....but OHHHH SOOO Cute.

6  FBB with a bead cluster pin. in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by Lootyaj on: July 01, 2008 01:39:11 PM
I really like making the Fat Bottom Bags, since this is the fourth one I've completely finished.  I love the quick gratification of starting on it and having it finished up completely soon there after.  Anyway, I am going to give this one to my mom's neighbor girl, who is all riddled with teen angst, and has the wicked witch for a step-mother.....

and the inside:

I see many more of these to come Smiley

7  A Bagsket of my very own! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Lootyaj on: July 01, 2008 01:21:25 PM
So, I've been coveting Lucinda879's bagsket she made https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=245119.0 I got to thinking to myself, "There is a tutorial, and although it seems detailed, it shouldn't be too hard"   Well, it was very time consuming, what with all of the pinning.  But, I am very proud of my finished product.  I screwed up the drawstring part, cuz I made it too big and had to cut the extra off at the end after I had already sewed the bias tape on. You can't really tell unless you are looking for it though.  Smiley

On to the pics!

A little bit of a closer pic....

And the top (with too much sun!)

I've been having some issues with my camera (won't recharge) but I had managed to get a pic of my last package from assilem421.  She sent me a huge package for #3 and I LOVE it all. 

This shot is of everything.

She sent me:
A cool pattern book for the Knifty Knitter she sent me in package #2

A little kit to make a turtle paperweight

Some pretty printer paper with clouds on it

An awesome pin cushion in the prettiest fabric ever (it even had some pins in it, which my hubby found when he squeezed the 'pillow'. )

An awesome cake decorating kit, with everything I would need to decorate a cake.  She must have read my mind cuz I've been wanting to do some cake decorating for some time know.  Know I have no excuse and must make cakes! 

And last but not least, she sent me a DROP SPINDLE!  I was jumping up and down when I saw this because I have SOOO wanted to start this craft.  She sent some practice roving and also some freaking gorgeous roving for when I get better at it. 

She also sent me a teaser, not pictured above.   Apparently she is still working on a project for me, and will send it separately.  It involves yarn, and really great colors at that!  Thank you so much assilem421!  Everything was perfect. 

And, like a dumby, I sent her package to her and forgot to take pictures.  She moved during the last month of the swap and doesn't have internet at home, so we will have to wait till she gets it back up to see the pics of what I sent.  Smiley

Oooohhh!  I received my package today!  I am soo happy!  Thank you so much Shoegirl!   Smiley

Everything is just perfect!  Here's the whole lot:

A close up of the pretty tote bag:

Here are all of the hooks she sent, I'm really excited about the bamboo ones, I have one now and I love how it feels when I use it.

She crocheted me a washcloth, in the most pretty colors.  It reminds her of the Gulf, and I think I agree!  I love using handmade washcloths.

Shoegirl sent two nice cotton yarns, a pretty blue and one called Putty. Smiley

I also got a cool recycle bag and a booklet on felting crochet.

I love it all, thank you so much Shoegirl!

Finally, here are the pics of the awesome package Jessica_marie sent me!  YAY!
All wrapped up....


I left out the pictures of the items she already posted pics of, as her shots were better than mine anyway. Smiley  Again, I absolutely loved my package, and I feel really spoiled!
