Gspinn- The rainbow sparkly hat is very pretty.
zombiecazz- The bunny hat is cute.
rlynn- Love the lily pad needle book. So cute. And of course, your daughter and her wings are adorable.

OK, here is waht I have accomplished so far this year. I love this post and seeing what I've accomplished.

Note cards made using a stamp that idlersdesign made for me.

Here is the coat rack that my husband and I made. I have never made anything like this before.


Magnets. I made about 12 sets of these.


TM Wallhanging. Most of the patches were made by me, but the five of them were made by other fine craftsters through the Teesha Moore patch swap.  This was my first Teesha Moore experience. Or I should saymy first experience doing them the right way.

Wow kriSmith, you have been busy.

Love the duck head in all of its incarnations.

Thank you!
That's what happens when you procrastinate, you gotta do it all at once. I think this board will help keep me on track with a list and motivation. I want to do at least one decent sized project a month and lots of simple ones along the way.

Just caught up on another 11 pages of goodies and chatter Smiley  I've made a few TM patches and sent them off for the TM Patch Swap, but that's about all I've done crafting-wise last month.  Non-crafting-wise, I sorted a TON of tiny beads bead soup, ironed and folded a laundry basket-full of fabrics, and cleaned out and organized my button stash.  My craft room has been a total disaster for months now...I still have a huge pile of fabric to edge and wash, but I told myself I'm not allowed to wash anymore until I iron and fold what I already had sitting around for the last 6 months or more Tongue  I found out my surgery won't be until sometime in April, so that's probably when I'll be doing the most crafting all year long when I'm home recovering for 4-6 weeks.

Arts and Crafts keep me sane

Just wanted to let everyone know I was still around, been sick with SAD and a cold so it has slowed me down.
I am in the middle of 4 really extensive projects and dont know if I will finish by the end of February, I will post pics soon though. Also I have 2 new paintings and I am working with different mixed media for the third than I usually do.

By the way here is my Pinterest board with my inspiration for the Gothic inspired Bohemian front room  http://pinterest.com/trinaxxl/design-ideas-for-the-front-room/

I made a bunch of granny's daughters this evening, and now I have enough for the swap! Once we get partners I'll divide them up and send them out. I'll post a pic once they've been received.\

Nice hoops, hats, pins, coasters, and ducks!  Smiley

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Tonight I finished a project I have been working on for the past month and a half! This is the skirt for my upcoming C.A. Cupid cosplay (new character from Monster High!). I'm proud of it because it's the first repeating pattern (and only second time) using my YUDU. I also had to draw the graphics myself in Illustrator for the heart pattern. I dip dyed a light pink gradient on the bottom half of the skirt as well although it is pretty light. It was my first time dyeing anything since I was little and I was totally freaked out by leaving it any longer lol The white peau de soi and lining were both upcycled from a vintage missies Easter dress, the gathered tulle trim was from my stash (and I've had it for.. ten years? lol)

I need to make a crinoline so it has more of a cupcake shape Smiley

KLKing: 50 bras! Wow! If they cost anything like mine that is crazy! (I'm totally jealous lol) I will try to get a photo of me wearing the corset when I'm out some time. I need a total closet overhaul so maybe a skirt should be an upcoming project Wink lol

rlynn: Thank you!! I don't have time to cosplay now but I have a bucket list of costumes for this year and I'm slowly working my way through them Smiley By the time the summer comes I plan on going to San Diego Comic Con and then I will be able to pick and choose what I bring! And there is more time to do photoshoots at my leisure, something I usually am too rushed to do and makes me feel sad because I have no evidence of my work. I haven't read the Abhorsen trilogy but I'm adding it to my list! I think using a literary source for cosplay inspiration is a great idea! Your daughter sounds like me when I was little Smiley (clearly things haven't changed much lol) Those wings you made Aria is so cute!

dreadfullydivine: I approve of you learning to sew! Especially if it is with the ultimate goal of sewing corsets Cheesy

Smeddley: Thanks!! The great thing is that you can always take them apart if you don't like what you've done or you want to cannibalize the boning for another project Smiley You should try it! And spiral steel boning is really not very expensive in the grand scheme of things.

Gspinn: HOBBES!! Oh my god. You reminded me how much I loved Calvin and Hobbes when I was younger by the awesomeness of him!! Great job!

zombiecazz: That hat is fabulous! I had a little cuteness meltdown when I saw the tails are actually 3d Cheesy

SilverMoon: What a sweet picture and hat!
