21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / PB&J Pillows on: June 27, 2011 10:05:01 AM
Our bed is a little boring (and our bedroom is way too purple), so I made some bread stuffies.  I'm used to more traditional beds/bedding - so although I love our new bed, the bedding has me flummoxed.  I just need to give up on the "too many pillows" look that doesn't fit with more modern style furniture -- it just looks.....weird. Smiley



Some day we'll repaint our bedroom a more neutral color (grey, perhaps?), and then the bedding won't come across so plain.  Until then, the pillows will have to do to add much-needed interest.  They make me happy regardless!

You could always follow the episode where Deanna Troi shows up in cake form as part of Data's dream. 

That would be pretty funny to have someone play along as the head with the cake torso....

I did end up spray-painting it with several light coats.  The spray glue dried with a kind of rubber-cementy yellowness - but I think I just chose poorly in the spray glue department.  The one I bought was permanent - I'm going to experiment in the future with using repositional spray and then using a matte shellac or something to ensure permanence.... Hopefully that'll work!  I was just on a tight time frame (due to procrastination). Smiley

My brother recently married his longtime girlfriend this October.  Fittingly, they married on 10-10-10, soon after they celebrated their 10th anniversary.  They're adorable--my little brother is precious, and his wife is very much a sister to me.  They also have fun tastes and had their reception in a loft-style building in the warehouse area of downtown Dallas.  As such, they put up a lot of framed artwork and photos throughout the bricked space.  My husband and I decided to each make them a gift playing off the theme of "Love Never Fails" (since we read from 1 Corinthians 13 at the ceremony) that they could use.  

I love, love, love Yulia Brodskaya's art, and I must admit that my piece was heavily influenced by her.  My husband designed the piece for me, so I can't take full credit. Smiley


I was pretty happy with it - I found that it was way easier to use a light table and spray adhesive and just follow the design with the long strips (cutting and folding as necessary) than trying to make each piece individually - especially for the curvy "never" and the scrollwork.  I'll do this again, but I need to make sure to use a repositional adhesive then - the paper got kinda rough looking with the spray adhesive I used this time.  I ended up spray painting the paper with several coats of white in order to help mask the rougher spots.



In the frame/shadow box (it's actually quite small - a foot square in size:



And for kicks, my husband's wonderful art.  He screenprinted his design on a large square canvas he'd painted with red acrylic.  It was really, really hard to give it up.  It looked great over our mantle the few days we had it. Sad

Here's a link to his tumblr with the screenprint. Smiley

I have to agree that the cozy makes the toilet paper really cute. Even though my cats don't shred paper, I might still have to make one for our spare bathroom - for some reason, the roll likes to unroll by itself and leave a puddle on the floor.  I guess the holder isn't level or something.  (Also, for what it's worth, I have to keep all of our doors open--even the closet door cracked--or one of our cats goes nuts and starts crying and clawing at them frantically.)

I think it's just wonderful.  I'm sure he'll love it!  Sending lots of love and thoughts his way and your way too 'cause I'm sure you're missing him so much.
