YAY! More pics!
the box this stuff came in was HUGE!!!!! I just squeaked the squeaker toy and Rudy went nutso! He grabbed it, found the squeaker and just started squeakin' away!

Rudy and his new squeaker toy

balls, treats, scrapbook, Rudy's nose(on the right)

The treats have a recipe! Which is a good thing because these are his new favorite yummies! The other dogs like them too.

She had pretty ribbons and tags on everything!

Rudy's scrapbook and the card marcusandila included.

Some of my fav pages in Rudy's scrapbook

A pea-green crochet coat that marcusandila designed herself! It's so CUTE!!!!!!!

I bribed him with a yummy so I could get some more pics. Here he is looking for yummy crumbs in his new coat. You can see the button.

And close up of his peanut butter flavored ball!

Rudy squeaking his toy on his new bed with his new tug toy next to him.

Thanks so much marcusandila for all the stuff. Rudy and I love it all!

Woohoo! I got my package today! It's all so very exciting!

My favorite sesame character, Cookie Monster, in t-shirt form:

and in tote bag form:

It's really cool especially since it's her first time sewing felt onto a tote bag! Totally awesome! And there's a pocket on the bag! With cookies inside! (Which I ate within 20 seconds of taking pictures!)

Plus I got stickers and jewelry and magnets, too!

Close-up of the non-sticker stuff. The David Bowie necklace says Dance Magic Dance, which is my favorite song from my favorite character. It's all rather exciting!

thank you so much for the super awesome package, pogo! you ROCK!  Grin

OMG I got my package! I'm so excited! It was packed with bright tissue paper and bubble wrap, yet the usps still managed to break something.  Angry I superglued most of it back together (while also managing to superglue my fingers together, to the pot, etc.).

The pots. The phoenix one broke, which is sad, because it was so beautiful! Both of the pots are awesome!

Detail of the tonks pot- the patronus is the wolf from the sixth book. click on the pic to make it bigger.

detail of the phoenix pot- swirlys on the back!

stickers and a photo album! w00t!

vanilla tea! woohoo!

various potions ingredients. Some are magnets and some are pendants but all are super cool!

wrist warmers! they fit wonderfully and are super soft!

awesome wand pen, dragon's blood incense, golden snitch earrings, and some other earrings. What's funny is that I was thinking about making her snitch earrings too!

pygmy puff! I haven't named it yet...

thanks xXescapethefateXx for the super awesome harry potter package!

5  the night sky! 3 pics in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by catlee07 on: January 25, 2008 07:24:44 PM
My aunt bought me this fabric when I went to visit (her daughter-my cousin- introduced me to this site!), and I made curtains! aren't they gorgeous? The fabric came from wal-mart- I only had 5 panels, so I used the beige curtains I already had as a filler.

each panel says "those who dream touch the stars"

ceiling shot!

My gorgeous ceiling took forever to paint! I had to use satin finish wall paint because ceiling paint wouldn't be dark enough. Textured ceiling + roller + special roller cover = still too much effort! It's actually a very dark purple. I used white acrylic paint for the stars. Originally, I was going to be super awesome and paint the constellations on my ceiling. 2 issues there: my ceiling isn't round (as the constellation charts were), and it's very hard to precisely star when one is craning one's neck to do the ceiling from a wobbly ladder. So, I winged it. (I get to make up my own constellations now, too!  Wink )You know those peel and stick glow in the dark stars? Well, they fall off of textured ceilings, hence the painted stars. I used the plastic stars to make stencils, large and small, and bought a medium star stamp. Shazaam! Starriness!  Shocked

What do you all think?

6  period costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by catlee07 on: January 25, 2008 07:11:10 PM
I made this a while ago for a foreign language fair. Historically accurate (as allowed- I didn't use whalebone for the hoops), and an altered pattern. It's based on what Catherine of Aragon would've worn when she came to England (she was Henry VIII's first wife). The hoop skirt was a major pain, and I sewed one of the sleeves on upside down and didn't realise it till we got to the competition! My sewing machine died about a week before the competition, but my mom came through and exchanged it for me. I entered it in the state fair, and it won first place! w00t! anywho, on to the pics:

This shows the colour best.

The main dress is made of brocade and lined with silver satin. The hoopskirt is pink stain with purple velvet trim around the bottom. There's also a chemise made out of undyed muslin. I didn't use grommets for the neckline lacing; I used little rings from the jewelry section at the craft store, and handsewed them in.

7  satin spanish book (MANY IMAGEZ!!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by catlee07 on: August 10, 2007 03:42:38 PM
My spanish teacher made us write a book in spanish for kids. So, I did. I made mine from scratch. I used cardstock for the covers, and covered them in silver satin. I used cotton resume paper for the endpapers. I stab-bound the book, with white yarn. I used some leftover trim from a costume to make a tie for the book. The tie is a long piece of black trim with a silver thread. The faerie illustrations are linocut prints. So is the butterfly. I hand illustrated each page using acrylic paints. I put a butterfly in the corner of each page and put the page number inside.

Anywho, pic-a-tures!

 The front cover (It's kind of hard to see in the light.)

I used the resume paper for the dedication page, too.

Thanks for looking! It's not great quality, but I did spend an entire night on it (procastination, what can I say?).

8  ugly pants into sultry shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by catlee07 on: March 08, 2007 07:15:30 PM
So, my aunt decided to give me an ugly pair of pants that she didn't want anymore.

After gathering dust in my closet for a few years, I decided that I should create something, if only to prevent the waste of fabric.

So, I ripped open the inseams...

and cut out a tube...then I went through about two or three fittings of myself, so I could take it in to fit my shape. Then, I took the zipper from the pants and put it in the back in a seam that was as long as the zipper. Unfortunately, this didn't look too hot. So, I partially ripped two seams so the fabric could fall naturally, and I added a black ribbon. Then, I cut up a scarf that in another life was attached to a hair clip. The edges had a nice black flower lace-ish thing, so I cut that off and sewed it to the top and bottom of my shirt. This whole process took 3-4 hours...




excuse the crappy pics...I forgot to put the flash on.  Undecided
