Working in the Kitchen

I have been in the kitchen working on a gator made out of rice krispy treats!

Really, I have!
I will be putting homemade marshmallow fondant on it in the morning!

Here is some pics of the process...

Very Messy.

I had to rub it with shortening.

Then placed it in a ziploc lined bowl.

I then pushed out all the air that I could out of the bag and sealed and put it in the refridgerator.

Tomorrow we shall see how it turns out! 

It is so exciting to save  four dollars!  Yep.  It was going to cost $6 dollars to buy premade fondant and I just couldn't bring myself to do it!

I was just one youtube away from $2 dollar fondant!

Maybe Monday I can post my newest creation...
Themed Pattern Weights!

Sewing Season!

Thanksgiving Covered Dish Carrier...
I am so glad to finally have it finished!

Now on to my next few projects.  Last night I started making homemade pattern weights!  Oh they are so (sew) cute!  Look good enough  to eat!

Here are some bolts of fabric that I worked on getting organized yesterday.  I found somewhere there are these neat plastic holders to hold up to 6 yards or more of fabric. 
Well, that got me thinking, I can't actually buy some right now, but there was a perfectly good, large piece of cardboard that I cut up into 6 large cards.  About 10" by 15".  Worked pretty good.  But not as pretty as the actual ones...  Check them out if you have lots of fabric and are looking for a good alternative to stashing them beautifully!

Now on to more of my Sewing Season!

new ideas brimming over

I am just so excited about the new ideas that I am being inspired by...

I am going to try to make a doll dress form! Yay..

And I already made a messenger bag for my oldest girl...I will post it in a minute...

I am also excited about my etsy shop again! So I will be updating it soon too.

I have been in the process of making a covered dish carrier for Thanksgiving...It says: "Thank you God for everything." On it. And it also says thankyou for birds that sing, for the food we eat, etc.

I will be trying to make my twin daughters each a Lil' Bo Peep skirt. Can't wait...I will be posting pictures shortly...

What I'm Up To...

I am going to try to make this American Girl Tree house for Kit out of...

This... a very sweet lady from our church brought this dollhouse to us this past week. I am so excited. It is the very size I needed to do this! Yay!

I also found a post or blog or something or other that shows you how to make a tree trunk for the underside! This is going to be so much fun when I am done! I think I want an AG doll for my birthday...oh well.
