I'm not sure how different British children parties are.. but here are my ideas:

Balloon animals
Jelly (Jell-o) and icecream
Party bags (little bags filled with small plastic toys.. the type you can buy in multipacks cheaply at Toys R Us)
Face painting
Lots of bright paper plates / cups
Mini EVERYTHING (make things really small.. like mini sandwiches/cakes) OR make everything oversized (so you're "smaller" in relation to it!)

For my boyfriend's 20th, I made him some cup-cakes.

They came out tiny and I had no icing, so I thought it'd be cute to make them be "self-aware"..

so this:

went to this:

It's hard to eat something when there's an inkling that it itself knows it exists *smiles*

So cute..

I don't know enough Japanese yet to understand the books.. I wish they'd translate them, the rest of the world needs some super-cute injected into it Smiley

If you squint, the black beads make it look like a little necklace-creature with lots of eyes looking at you...

69  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Lurking-no-longer (kitten included) on: July 22, 2006 05:57:45 AM
Hello all!

I've been lurking here for a while, and want to contribute something back to the forum which has given me so much in the past week-or-so.


I'm finally putting pictures up of some of my completed projects!! I've just started getting into crafty stuff and it's, quite literally, saved my life. Without going into too much detail, bad things have been happening in my life and crafting has been the most fantastic distraction- and this forum has helped a billion times over.


so here are a few of my bits-and-pieces. I've only been using polymer clay for 3 days now.. and apologies for the kitten picture, but she only became a member of my household 2 days ago! Her original name was "Fimo" (see what I did there??), but it was later changed to Yoshi.

Love to all

Experimenting.. I tried to put real petals from my garden into the clay. They dried up (obviously), but i'm going to figure out how I can "set" organic material before I put it in the clay.. any tips would be appreciated Smiley (I'm thinking dipping in varnish?)

My very first attempts at polymer-clay-food. Very unoriginal products, but I'm trying to avoid having to make canes as much as possible (I'm going to try and use polymer clay without ever having to make a cane, although this probably means i'll never be able to supply my miniatures with lemons/oranges/etc!!)

My favourite completed project. Should probably be under "jewellery" as it's been turned into a necklace. I can't take credit for the image (stolen from someones myspace). Transferred onto grey Fimo-soft by putting the image onto the clay, rubbing with vodka and leaving to set for 5 minutes. Bake for 5 more minutes, remove paper, bake for another 20. Voila!

If only I could craft more of these!
70  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Spherical plushie? on: July 11, 2006 12:28:47 AM

Firstly, i'd like to say how much I LOVE this forum. I've only been skulking around for a day but i'm in love!

Secondly- I want to attempt to make my first plushie and have two questions which I couldn't find answers for.

1) Has anyone ever done a beanie-baby autopsy and then used the basic patterns yourself to create a variation (with different fabric). Do you think this is possible? I'm tempted to buy a cheap beanie off of ebay and then pull it apart (if I have the heart to) to see how it's put together and then re-construct. Any horror stories with this idea?!

2) Spherical plushies. I've been inspired by work from here:


Is there any magical-forumla/pattern for a spherical plushie? Just a big ball of plushie-goodness? I know that if I attempt this alone I will end up with a non-symmetrical lump and some wasted fabric Sad I've looked all over the internet for bean-bag patterns, beanie patterns.. sphere patterns.. with no luck.

Any help would be very VERY much appreciated!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this Smiley
