1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Timmy's Tedd Bear on: March 10, 2010 01:09:12 PM
This is a teddy bear that I made up for my son for school on Teddy Bear Day. I wanted to make it large enough to be a cuddle bear at bedtime, but small enough to fit into his backpack for school. I made this in one evening, because I had forgotten all about the teddy bear day. Yeah .... I always seem to do stuff like that.  LOL, so I was up until 2:30am crocheting!! Smiley 

Here's Timmy's Teddy:


I wrote up a pattern for it as I crocheted, so if you'd like it, it is here on my blog Smiley

Thanks for looking!! Smiley
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Alice In Wonderland's Dormouse on: February 27, 2010 04:31:18 PM
A friend is having an Alice In Wonderland Sweet 16 party for her daughter and asked me if I could whip up the dormouse so they could put it in a teapot.  Here is what I came up with! Smiley

And for reference for those that may not know what the Disney version of the dormouse looks like:

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A hockey table & some rifles! on: December 26, 2009 08:52:39 PM
For Christmas this year, my hubby and I decided to craft our boys and our nephews a hockey table and some guns.  
We used this pattern for the guns, but decided not to do them as space guns.  We used this (pdf) pattern for the hockey table.

The kids LOVED everything!! Smiley  Totally went crazy over them. Smiley  Yay! Smiley

Progress pics on the guns.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A bazillion and one hats! on: December 21, 2009 11:11:26 PM
I finished this one tonight.  Not sure who I'm going to give it to ... I really have no one on my list for it, but I needed a break from my Christmas crafting.  I realized that I have quite a few that I never photographed.  How aggravating is that?  But here are the ones I have ..... Thanks for looking! Smiley




















5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Civil War & Mickey Mouse Ornaments on: December 14, 2009 12:38:43 PM
Every year I make my nephews Christmas ornaments.  I try to center the ornament around a theme of their life that year, or something they've really been into.  This year, for my 10yo nephew, I made a Union soldier from the Civil War.  He is all about war strategy and reading books on the civil war.  (Weird, I know ... but he takes after his awesome aunt (ME!)).  For my other nephew I did Mickey Mouse.  He's 4 and is obsessed with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cartoon. Smiley

I made them with tinfoil all crumpled into a ball, then built up sculpy around them.  Why do I have multicolored sculpy?  Well.. my precious boys combined my black, hot pink and white together, that's why! LOL

Sorry for the crappy cell pics.

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Ideas on 80's type fabrics? on: July 14, 2009 02:07:47 PM
I scored a HUGE tub of fabric at a yardsale for dirt cheap.  All of the pieces have at least 1 yard, if not 5-20 yards on them!!  There was some beautiful linen, beautiful cottons, great dress material, suede, corduroy, and tons more.  I love sooooo much of it and have big plans for most of it.
What I'm totally clueless on, though, is this major 80's fabric I ended up with.  The only thing that is coming to me is Hammer Pants and old lady mumus.  Please, please, please give me some ideas on what to do with this fabric.  Some of it is knit, some woven ... some of it is super thick upholstery type stuff. 






Thanks!

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pirate Party Printables! on: June 01, 2009 04:51:58 AM
My sons are having a Pirate themed birthday party, so I wanted pirate hats & eye patches for them and all their partygoers.  So I made up these Pirate hats that I could print out on card stock, cut out, add a little string or elastic and VIOLA! we have some pirate hats!  I then decided to make some girl ones for the little girls that will be there and some cupcake picks too.  If you'd like to read my blog entry on it, you can find it here.

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Acacia Tree At Sunset on: May 19, 2009 09:08:31 PM
My sister just moved into her own apartment and it is totally barren in there.  No curtains, nothing on the wall... just a canvas waiting to be painted. Smiley  Her fave tree is the acacia tree, so to put a splash of color up on her walls, I painted this 16x20 canvas.  It is still a bit wet in the pic.  I probably should have waited to take the pic, but I wanted to show a friend what I was doing. Smiley



TFL!
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Pretty upside down hanging plants. on: May 15, 2009 09:56:34 PM
I can't claim this one.  It was my dh that did this up, but I really wanted to show you guys. 
You know those topsy turvy things that have the upside down plants that you hang on your porch?  DH made a couple for his mom for mother's day.  He used the instructions here.  But then he spiffied it up even more and stole some of my fabric and ribbon to make it pretty.  And he gota nice chain to hang it up with as well. 

Plant: .25
Pot: Free - recycled pop bottle
Chain: .75
Misc fabric, ribbon & potting soil just sitting around.
TOTAL: $1.00

Now he's doing some for our house too! YAY! Smiley
