While it may seem, since I haven't been updating, that I haven't been busy, well, that's just not true. What's first? Well, I guess I'll start with the Christmas orniments I made:
I picked layouts that I liked and then instead of putting them on 12X12 paper, I just put them on the tags. It helped that I found the tool to set the BIG eyelets.
My sister also requested a cupcake shirt for my neice's birthday this weekend.
I pretty much just used scraps that were left over from Malachy's 2nd birthday shirt, which was Carebear themed.
My mom's birthday is coming up in about a week, so I made her a little something. I used the tutorial videos on YouTube to make some mini polymer clay food, then stuck sewing pins in them to make some decorative pins for her. I also made a preety good deal of mini food for my neice's birthday (deifferant neice), but there hasn't been a good sunny day to go outside and take pictures yet.
I used a gift bag pattern I got off of melstampz.blogspot.com and a desktop background image I got from deviantart.com and made a cute little gift bag to put it in.:
Get it, instead of LV it's CC for Cup Cake!
I've been working on a game of photo I-Spy for Anna's party tomorow, but my computer is acting all goofy, so I'm not 100% sure I will get it done in time. I have also been making a TON of them in differant themes and colors and plan on posting them VERY soon.
I keep reaching over for my new notebook than I am writing just about everything down in. It makes sense to me, but to anyone else it would look like doodles and fragmented sentences.
Oh, last thing, I have been getting crazy into clay, polymer clay, and well, whatever the other kind is. We now have all these little pinch pots I've been making all over the house. I remembered the basics from sculpting class in highschool, and I've been having fun painting some. And the way the polymer clay swirls together makes some BEAUTIFUL combos:
I've got so many I brought some to work to clutter up my desk here.
One page of my notebook is full of ideas I see here and there and want to try out, although who knows when I will get a chance to. So a few I'm working with, Trick-Or-Treat bags, pretty much just a bigger version of the gift bag above, Scrable pillows, where you spell out a word, and each pillow is a scrable tile.
