Well Im back!

I just have not had the time or the Internet speed to post.  We have been moving so much with the military so my crafts have been put on the back burner for a while.  The kiddos managed to break my camera and I heard a rumor that Santa will be giving me a new one for Christmas.  I finally got busy and worked on a few things, but since my camera is broken you are gonna have to live with pics from my phone. 

I decided that I want to burn through some of my stash so I am making ACU purses.  This is my own design, just a wing it thing and I am very pleased with the results. 

All of my Christmas decor is stuck in a box back in our house in Arkansas, so I get to start over with new decorations!  I made this wreath with my daughter.  Everyone thinks it looks like something out of the Grinch that Stole Christmas.  I guess you can't go wrong with Dr Seuss!

Halloween 2009 serious nap needed!

Well My daughter was full of attitude for Halloween! A month ago she chose a witch for her costume and so like a good mom, I went and bought the fabric and started cutting. A few days before Halloween she decided she wanted to be a Vampire instead. I had already made the pettiskirt and the corset so I decided I would just add fangs and a little blood. No that did not do it! I put the fangs on her and she said she didn't like them! so then I put a little blood on her face and it scared her! she started screaming like it was real blood and she was the one bleeding! So after cleaning her face I had to make a last minute trip to Walgreen's to find the last witch hat in town! She did not want her picture taken and looks like Wednesday Adams with her sour little face. Jacob was fine but he Had to have the zombie costume from Kmart (daddy bought it for him not me!) so that is not mommy made. Over all I did get a few smiles! I think a nap before trick or treating would have been helpful!

action vida 007

action vida 007, originally uploaded by one crafty momma.

I know, I know, my daughter is so stinking cute! Farbenmix patterns really suit her personality and Vida is no exception. the cuffs are marabo sewn on to elastic to make a removable cuff and the leggins are a pair of witch tights from walmart that I cut the bottom off and serged a lettuce edge around the bottom. The bows have a marabo and skull center with tiny crystals of the skulls eyes. now I need to start thinking about her Christmas outfit.

Halloween BOOtique WIP

I love the farbenmix Vida pattern so I am making one for Hope for the fall festival this weekend. I thought I would show you what I have so far but I cant help but think something is missing. there is such a fine line between just enough and too much and my husband says he just doesn't get it. I had wanted a different design on front but it would not fit my hoop so I had to make due. Do you think it needs more applique does it look BOOtique?

Greenwood Bulldog bottle caps

bottlecaps 002, originally uploaded by one crafty momma.

These were fun to make. I had the images printed at Walgreens and then cut them with a 1 inch circle punch. I used a sticker maker and made them stickers and glued magnets on the back. Then I coated it with an epoxy resin and le it cure. I want to use them to make bows and key chains but these will be extras to go on Hope's snap cap choker and I will also use these at frigde magnets.

family fun with water bottle rockets

My Husband was off today and was totally bored so we looked around the we for ideas and this is what we came up with. This old House has a really cool tute on how to make a water bottle rocket. I think the total cost today about 23 bucks and I had to sacrifice 2 2liter bottles of my diet Dr Pepper. Everyone in the apartment complex came out to watch and it shot up 40-60 feet in the air. The tutorial has you using a foot pump but we uses my husbands portable air compressor. Well here are the pics!

backpack 006

Jacob and daddy! why do boys have to make silly faces in every picture! He is such a ham!
I really wanted to take her to school but she saw the bus and cried till I agreed to let her ride. then as she left I cried for about an hour. My last baby startting school! where has time gone! I wanted to make her a special outfit so I made Koyko by Patty Young this came out so cute I wish I could have gotten a better pic of the fabric I used a paris poodle dress and the bias and sleeves are from the sheet that I used as the main body of the back pack.

I am so glad that daddy was able to make it home in time to meet the kids getting off the bus. I just wish he could have been there in the morning when I cried like a baby, could have used some serious comfort!

In addition to Patty Young's Koyko fom modkid, I could not resist buying the new book from Melly and Me called Kaleidoscope! It has so many super cute patterns! I just finished the Fairyland Toadstool Backpack from the book and here it is! Hope picked out the fabric. She wanted it to look just like the one in the book and was not happy that I did not have any stripe scraps for the door but she said it will do. I also added extra flowers (she wanted a bigger garden) around the door. I need to work on my applique I am a little out of pratice but I am still happy with the overall results. this was even featured on threadbangers back to school episode!
