FO: Puppy Poppet

August 26, 2010

I made this for CkChan in the Mini Poppet Swap on Craftster and I LOVE her! She did as well.

Close Up:

She also had paw pads on her hands and feet, but I didn’t get a picture of them before she traveled to her new home.

Felt Breakfast for a King

May 29, 2010

I made this for the OWS on Craftster and am loving the way it turned it out. I have never done pancakes this way and I don’t think I will ever do them any other way after seeing how fluffy the look.

Steam Punk-a-saurus Poppet

April 3, 2010

I made this for sailorbonkgirl in the Dinosaur Swap on Craftster. I am in LOVE with how she came out so I shall now post about a bazillion pictures.




up close: her goggles were done with poly clay and a piece of black bias tape.

from the back to see her lovely stegosaurus spikes:

I really enjoyed making this poppet and hope to make more.

Meet Mindy

April 3, 2010

Now that swap packages are being received and swapping has slowed down a bit for me, I can post pictures and keep up with my blog. 😀

Meet Mindy! She was made for Onegroovyday in the I ❤ to Sew swap on Craftster. She now sits above OGD's sewing machine and is well loved.

Monsters Inc Scrapbook Layouts

March 12, 2010

Most of my creations lately have been for the ridiculous amount of swaps I have signed up for and I have been unable to post them 😦

Here are two scrap layouts that I was able to finish in between all my swap crafting.

All of the page items and embellishments came from a scrapbooking swap. I love how many different ways the kit can be used and I LOVE the way these pages came out.

A Dotee Named Donna

March 2, 2010

I have recently discovered the wonderful and joyous addiction that is Dotee. These 4″-6″ dolls that have a hanger and a tail and can be creatively turned into anything you can imagine has captured my imagination.

For a swap on Swap-Bot, the challenge was to make a Dotee named Donna.

Here she is:

6×6 Recipe Cards

February 20, 2010

In a few different groups I have been swapping 6×6 recipe cards with the plan to collect them into a large book one day. I currently have 25 cards and am still swapping.

Here are two of my latest all ready to be sent off and sorted.
Sour Cream Peach Pie

Pioneer Woman’s Apple Dumplings

I used the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge for the embellishments. I am in LOVE with that cartridge. In fact, I have something big in store for my Etsy shop using that Crictut cartridge 😀

UFO: Sampler Quilt

February 15, 2010

Many moons ago I did a swap on Craftster where I sent out my fabric to other quilters and they made me some wonderful blocks that I could make into a quilt.

I have not yet done that. I still have these blocks and the excess fabric sitting around. I really need to finish it because the fabrics are so fun and the blocks that were made for me are beautiful.

Momma Cloth AKA Cloth Pads

February 13, 2010

I will admit, when I first read about people using cloth menstrual pads, I was a little grossed out. Granted, I also was a little grossed out by the idea of cloth diapers and have grown to love them, so it didn’t take too much for me to come around.

Pairing my desire to tread lighter on Mother Earth and a new found allergy to something they now put into the paper products, I decided to step into a new world of menstrual pads.

I recently claimed Shelanie for a wisty surprise in the OWS on Craftster and made her a set of 6 regular/heavy pads and a wet bag. Here they are:


I used fleece or flannel for the top layer, terry cloth for the hidden inner layer, and either flannel or cotton for the bottom layer with wings.

These were my prototypes as I had never made this style before. I used birds eye (diaper cloth) on one of them before realizing that, um duh, it is white. Not really the best color or material for this particular absorbency need. I have added Velcro to these to use myself.

Cloth Diaper Swap

February 12, 2010

I recently completed the Cloth Diaper swap on Craftster. I was paired with Ekka Girl who made me an extrememly wonderful package of cloth diapering goodies. Here is the package that I sent her:

Group Shot:

Pink Fleece Soaker with a skull and crossbones on the bum, fitted diaper also with a skull and crossbones on the bum and extra insert

A set of six safari camo flannel wipes and 2 bib and burp cloth sets for her new little one expected to arrive soon. The bowling fabric is an older Micheal Miller that I LOVE and the pears and apples is Alexander Henry.
