Bernard the Elf

I was asked to do a custom order for an acquaintance of mine last week and she asked me to do an elf plushie for her 2 yr old. His name is Bernard and he leaves her daughter letters everyday counting down to Christmas. This was such a cute idea, I just had to help and try to make the neatest little guy.

This is what I came up with...

My original sketch

Did the mouth, eyebrows, and cheeks with string.
This was after the felt was cut out.. 

And after..


I can't wait for the little girl to open it on Christmas. I hope she loves it. :)

First Rainbow Cake

On my favorite craft site CO&K , there are several how to's and versions of rainbow cake.
My sisters birthday rolls around and last minute I decide to try this out.

I found a link if you need a how to...rainbows

What I did was, followed directions on the white cake mix box and added a sprite. Afterward, I separated the mix into four or five different bowls and added food coloring to each mix. Then you just pour each one into the cake pan as crazy or neatly as you want it. After its done baking use whipped topping to finish it off and have this...

Oh, and it tastes supaaaah awesome!

Operation Wedding Shoezies

Good news everyone! I've found the perfect pair of shoes to wear for my wedding!
But wait...what's this? Oh, they're only 1,000 smack-a-roos? Pshhhh, chump change.
(Actually what really happened was I about choked on my tea and nearly killed over).  Cheese N Rice that's A LOT for a pair of shoes..but they're soooo friggin' cute.

Aren't they beeeaaautimus?

Okay, so I know some of you are prob thinking 'wow, that's tacky as crap'. But if you knew me then you'd know the sparklier the better. Granted I want my dress to look stylish yet elegant, but my shoes have got to say POW (as well as my butt, but we'll talk about that later).
So, I have officially declared it crafty-loo project time!
I am on a mission to make a similar pair to these sweet little beauties and I need your help.
All my crafty friends, I need your advice. How should I go about doing this? Glue the rhinestones or sew them? Perhaps both?
I have ideas, but the more feedback I get the easier this project may actually be.

So stay tuned while I throw in random posts on my progress and whether or not I decide to give up and set them on fire. Either way it'd make for a fun post.  :)

Thanks Guys! <3

P.S. Here's the etsy link, just in case you want to buy them or see more pics!
