1  Turmeric-hiding Yellow Tee Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: December 10, 2018 01:35:49 PM
The ManFlesh has been cooking quite a bit with turmeric. I've already made turmeric-colored napkins, picked up a turmeric-colored kitchen towel, and dug up an old, yellow dish rag to try to keep the stains contained.

The man never remembers to wear an apron or at least put on a already-stained shirt! So for xmas, he's getting this!

I cut a freezer paper stencil with my Cricut, mixed a few yellow craft paints together with textile medium to get a turmeric-y stain color, et voila!

2  Embellished Hand Towel in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: December 10, 2018 12:18:18 PM

Two of our "water" rooms use purple in the decor and purple is not the easiest color to find Christmas decor in! I got lucky to find this grey and glittery snowflake towel to go with this purple glittery fabric I found!

It can go in our main floor bathroom...

... or the kitchen!

Let it snow!

3  Card Making "Kit" Labels/Tags in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: December 08, 2018 07:41:49 AM
Our nieces (ages 13 and will-be-12-at Christmas) always draw their Thank You and other notecards to us and I assume everyone else, too. So I put together some simple Make-a-Card Kits for them for Christmas gifts to go with the inevitable gift cards - I'm a little sad that we're entering the gift card years. Sniff.

The only photo I got was sort of poorly lit, but I finished well after dark last evening and was eager to get things all wrapped up, because these were my last packages to go into the box to ship off for the holidays! So I didn't get pics of the kits, but they included: a 25-pack of blank cards/envelopes, erasable colored pencils (their favored method of decorating), a good eraser, postage stamps, and a sheet of return address labels I made and printed up).

4  Paper Spool Box, Decorated for Xmas in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: December 08, 2018 07:23:07 AM
When I saw this spool box pattern on svgcuts.com, I knew it was right for a friend of mine for Christmas.


And I decided to make it Christmas themed just for fun! I was able to use stashed bits and bobs, plus a few new ones. Wink

6  Vintage Pup Planter with Bottle Brush Tree in Winter Holidays by TheMistressT on: December 07, 2018 05:30:05 AM
Whew! This gift has arrived and been opened so I can finally post it! It's so hard to wait to post a project, especially one you're so tickled with, isn't it?

Pink and gold are such a pretty combination, especially with soft white. I had fun figuring this one out and then putting it all together. And so... LOTSA PICS!

The planter, the collar decoration, and the pink glass balls are all vintage which I think adds some nice character.

7  Small Paper Gift Boxes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: December 05, 2018 08:01:04 PM
I have been looking for svg files for gift card boxes that was something easily malleable for different occasions and different recipients. A friend showed me these "cookie boxes" and I decided they fit the bill!

I used cardstock from a pad of color coordinated winter images and it came with the tags, too.

They're about 4" (10+ cm) square and about 1.5" (3.8 cm) deep, so plenty of room for a gift card in its original paperboard packaging.

I used my Cricut Explore to do the cutting and scoring.

Y'all have been up to some wondrous crafting!

Calluna: Such a neat variety of projects and each one fun or pretty! I hope you got through all those flickr photos! I am luckily under the maximum. Whew!

Tendstowardschaos: Wowzas! That yarn is so pretty and it made such perfect hair for your amazing Elf on a Shelf! That wool hat lloks like it will keep your husband toasty warm, too!
CLM: I love seeing the variety of ideas your Crafternoon group comes up with for each of the projects!

I had been collecting bases and baubles for making bottle brush tree decorations for a few years and finally got around to using some! I pulled out bases for 9 and made 8! I'm not going to stress about having that last one done and listed this year.

I am hoping that all or most of my holiday gifts-to-give will be here by the end of this week, so I can have them all mailed off by the beginning of next week. THEN I can do my last crafting for The ManFlesh and Delia Dog.

YES! I finally got to do some serious destashing!

All this bottle brush trees and their bases are from stash. Most of the glitter, bows, and baubles are too!

These put quite a dent in my bottle brush tree bin o' goodies, but... I really hope to get these babies sent off to new homes.

10  Five Whimsical Bottle Brush Trees in Winter Holidays by TheMistressT on: December 02, 2018 09:51:26 AM

I went a little bananas making some more bottle brush tree decorations. It was fun to finally use the containers and baubles I'd been collecting for these! All the bases and some of the baubles are from thrift stores and garage sales, but not necessarily vintage.

Here they are individually. Moose included for scale.

His little hands are on springs! I think he may have originally been part of a scented wax melter thingie? Dunno.

A tiny candle holder, made in Germany.

A wee birdie "pitcher" that would not have been functional at all. Originally from Michael's.

This guy is labeled as made in Japan for a specific store in Spokane, WA.

The Santa mug is from Pottery Barn 2012.

I hope they all find happy, festive homes!
