Oh how I've missed working with t-yarn!
I finally got to cutting up a bunch of t-shirts I've been collecting.

I can't wait to make something with all of this yarn!
Hope to share something (maybe more of these or these?) soon!

Happy Easter

Hope everyone has a wonder Easter tomorrow!
Here are some of our dyed eggs.
We bought a tie-dye kit from Walmart.
I was impressed!
It worked pretty well!

...and here are our Easter baskets (buckets).
Gotta love the dollar bin section at Target!
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. John 3:16-17


Here are some recently completed custom orders:

I found a recipe for these super cute (and easy) nest treats yesterday:

My Very First Website!

I recently completed a web design class.
Here is the website I made for one of my assignments:

Web design has definitely been my favorite class so far!
I can't wait to learn more about using JavaScript!
It's amazing what can be done combining HTML, CSS, and JavaScript!
I have a much bigger appreciation for what goes into making all of the sites I see everyday when surfing the web!

P.S. Here is a site that hosts websites for free (without all of those annoying ads):

Win a Free Custom Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper!

***the winner has been chosen; you can see the finished cake topper here***
I have been wanting to add a custom bride and groom wedding cake topper to my Etsy shop...but I don't want to make up a couple to use for the example in my listing!


I have decided to hold a drawing and give away a free custom bride and groom wedding cake topper to one of you instead!

I have never made one before, so you will be my first! The people will look like the characters in my family ornaments, but be more 3-D. Everything about the bride and groom will be customizable...really, the sky is the limit!

It will only include a polymer clay bride and groom (no other characters for this one, but I will offer additional pets or people when I add the listing to my shop), and the bride and groom will be mounted on a wooden 3 x 3 x 1/2 inch heart (like my love birds).

After the drawing ends, please allow 2-3 weeks for me to make and ship it to you (longer if you live outside the USA).

Also, I will be using a picture of your finished cake topper in my shop.

How to enter?
Just leave a comment with your name and a way for me to contact you.
Becoming a fan of mine of Facebook would be sweet too...but it's not required:)
Only one entry per person.

If I am unable to contact the winner, I will draw again.

I will take entries up until April 21, 2011.
I will draw a winner on April 22, 2011 and contact the winner ASAP.

and Good Luck:)!
