Happy Easter Everyone!

Just the latest in my self-guided cake decorating escapade. The lesson here was how to work with piping gel to get that stained glass look. This one - my first ever piping gel attempt - took me 5 hours just to do the flower design!

Vote for my Little Guy!

I've entered him in the "Green is Universal" reuse contest because he's made from plastic security packaging and leftover Christmas wrapping paper. (In his previous life he was wrapped around the HP ink cartridges at Costco.)

So please vote for him, and at the very least click on him to find a semi-tutorial for how to make the plastic part :)

The link: , and you'll find him under 'toys, games, and gadgets'. An extra bonus - your vote will enter you to win a $500 shopping spree at Etsy!

For the Future Oscar Winner

Not showing well in this pic was the shine on the statue. I used metallic gold cardstock, and hand-inked the shadows, but the paper did not have enough shine to it. So the paper statue was coated in clear gloss acrylic finish.

Progress Halted!

Because I can't decide what words to add to the cover! This will eventually be the cover of my daughter's wedding guestbook, but indecision has had me staring at it for the last hour.
Don't look too close yet - I still have to add more 'depth' to the woodburned picture.
