Here is a clearer photo. I made two projects from her wist. One was from an amazing blog, called Roman Sock http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/little-acorn.html I LOVE this site and highly recommend it for crocheters!!!

The other was from an etsy site, which had no pattern so I had to try and wing it. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29699792&ref=fp_feat_7

I have all the links on my blog. http://mythicalmagpie.blogspot.com/

Thanks woodland_faerie for introducing me to these awesome projects!!! I had a lot of fun making them!

okay, to the amount of spoilage I received from PepperRose22 was unbelievable!!! First of all, all of the  presents were neatly wrapped in red tissue paper. It was so pretty I almost didn't want to open them!!

So here is all the loot assembled in a gluttonous display.

Like srsly....OMG!

OKay so first the raddest pillows evah!! I had NO idea how she transferred the image, but she gave up her secret....she used Twilight bandannas for the front!!! How clever!!

Totally adorable flip flops with the name of each of the 4 novels on the straps!!!

Awesome New Moon jewelry box

And when I opened the box, I swear, there were a dozen smaller tissue wrapped goodies. I thought I had died and gone to Twi-heaven!!!

 AS seen here, I have:
1- Locket
1_ Gorgeous black and clear necklace which I wore out to a fancy restaraunt last night!
1- Purple and silver bracelet
1- Set of red-heart/apple earrings
2- sets of hairpins with cukllen crest and Jake on them!
2- Sets of earrings (one set alice, one set the cullen family)
1_ Adorable double sided keychain  (Jake & Bella on one side and Bella and Edward on the other.)
1- Awesome Twilight Bookmark
1- A Bella bracelet of my very own with awesome wooden wolf and crystal heart.

Here are some better looks.

Sadly, my camera isn't getting good shots of the marble earrings/hairpins, but I LOVE the bookmark, with the mini book charm. SO CUTE!!!

I just love this!

And then the best thing ever!!! A Twi-Baseball tote with a baseball button as the clasp!! LOVE IT!

I can't thank PepperRose22 for going WAY over the limit and spoiling the crap out of me.

The items were just so clever, thoughtful and AWESOME!

I can't WAIT until the movie now!!!!!

Thank you SOOOO MUCH!


(I also forgot an adorable key notebook and two adorable buttons that read "I want you always" and "Stupid Lamb". There's just TOO much to remember!!!!)

25  Eek!!! 2 ft Cockroach!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sullengal on: July 10, 2009 11:39:42 AM
Yes, you read it right. Two FEET of cockroach-y horror!!

This is what happens when you leave food out too long!!

So a friend commissioned this monster and I was tickled to have obliged! I have to say, I laughed all the way through making him and I almost couldn't let him go!

So I finished him late and was still in my jammies....I was still feeling totally Alfred Hitchcock-horror.

And here he is with his happy owner!!! *sniffle* I was sad to see him go!

Hope you like!

26  Crane Sculpture (Now with armeture tutorial -image obese) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by sullengal on: July 03, 2009 02:31:57 PM
Hi again all. Just wanted to post the guy I've worked on for a week and finished this afternoon.

I feel really good about him. Even if the pictures don't do him justice.

And here he is on the altar, with the other statuary (I did NOT sculpt the other ones fyi).

C&C welcome!!

And now, I nap!!


Per the request of several, I have included pictures of a smaller sample armeture for this crane.

(First, I got a small piece of wood that was soaked in our grove waters and put it into the tin foil I gathered for the body. That is what I wanted at the heart of my crane, but obviously isn't necessary.)

Then I crumpled the foil into the loose shape I want for the torso of the bird.

I use a brayer or something solid to smooth out the shape, to make it easier to sculpt on top of.

Then I cut and shape the craft wire (18 gauge, I think here) And I stick it onto the foil. Sometimes, I need to glue it, or add more foil underneath it to stick it to the body.

Repeat the process with the head, and you will have two pieces.

(Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the middle parts. Hopefully my description will be enough atm. But feel free to shoot me a message with questions or post it here!)
Now, I usually cover the foil first before covering the legs and head (just to be able to hold onto the wire while sculpting.

I cover the body and head with well-conditioned, sheets of clay. Covering both with enough clay to cover the foil.

I take this time to put surface details into the clay and shape the beak and eyes as well as the feather detail.  

Then I insert the neck wire into the torso. I start to build up the neck a bit from the base of the bird's body just to put the wire in place.

I heat the clay pieces with my embossing or heating tool. (You can stick it in the oven if you don't have those tools, but be sure to steady the neck in place before baking.)

Then I build up the legs and neck with clay, heating with the heat tool as I go. It just makes it easier working on a section then baking it, so yiou don't smuch your proigress, but this is just MY method. You might prefer to keep it all workable until the very end.

If you feel that the colors are not to your preference, you can paint the item once the clay has been baked.

I hope the pics of the wire and foil helped give an idea of what my clay-less armeture look like.

Hope this helps!!!

27  Meet Melody - sweet cloth doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sullengal on: June 12, 2009 11:06:36 AM
Okay, so I was checking out Odd Dotty's site http://odd-dotty.typepad.com/and I got the urge to make a nice simple cloth doll. So I found a pretty simple doll pattern http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/santa/baby.html and blew it up a bit, grabbed some yarn and safety eyes and came out with this sweet girl.

Sadly, my digital camera lost juice and I have no more batteries, so crappy cell phone pictures it will have to be.

Hope you like her.

And her face with hand-painted safety eyes and embroidered mouth.

C&C welcome!

28  New babies. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by sullengal on: May 17, 2009 08:27:19 PM
I call this the Expressa-babies line.

I just wanted to try sculpting a little baby with clothes and glass bead eyes and now I'm kinda hooked. They're far from perfect, but I love them nonetheless.
I hope you like!!

The whole gang

"I love you this much"

"MY ducky" (With pacifier)

"Ooh I want!"

29  Easy Patriotic Rail Fence Tablerunner in Quilting: Completed Projects by sullengal on: May 17, 2009 05:09:03 PM
Well it has been a LONG time since I've tried quilting. But I wanted to make a thank you gift that was from the heart and here it is!

It is made with 12 rail fence squares on point (two which are cut in half and placed in the half square spots). I used red, white and blue, but really any three colors can be used to show your national pride!!!

The messy back (Mine never turn out perfect.

I stitched in the ditch to quilt along the zig-zags and I used cotton batting.

It was a pretty simple project and I'm glad I did it. I often find quilting a challenge, but I am pretty pleased with the table runner and it was a great kick start back into quilting. I hope you enjoy!!

30  Chocolate Meringue Cookies - First timer! in Dessert by sullengal on: April 26, 2009 11:22:23 AM
Okay so I've never made anything to be baked without a mix box and "Just Add" xomething on the label.

I'm pretty pleased with how easy these were. (Not sure my dentist will be though! :-p)

But the recipe is really simple and they are pretty delicious, if not terribly sweet. All in all, I'm pleased with the experience and hope to bake more!
