I made this cake recently for a friend's birthday. The fuzzy/furry quality of the coconut just needed a face to make it complete.

Fish trivet. Trivet! What a word! I guess this is not actually a tri-vet. Do we still call it that? Or a univet, or novet... besides not having the vocabulary to describe the object itself, I am struggling with the right kind of glue to use. The stuff I have works, but threads out a lot, and bubbles up. It's called "advanced craft glue". Maybe I need "more advanced craft glue", or to spend more than 3 dollars on it!

A crafty mom I have. Always calling herself unartistic, but as it turns out, she's secretly a crafter! She knit me towels in assorted shapes and sizes for my new place. They are made of all cotton yarn, and work wonderfully! I wanted to show them off so here you go! Gracias Ameliabee!

My lovely sis came to town a bit ago and (because of course she didn't just want a boring apron) we decided to make her a skapron. A bubble apron that wrapped all the way round and was an actual skirt. Well, I did my best, but ran into a hitch with the bubble part. The hitch was I measured wrong and it didn't really wrap entirely around to cover her toosh! So our solution was to change the name.
Meet the Apress- 0r something like that. Basically it's a really cute top to wear with jeans or leggings. It bubbles and makes any woman look like a fun young girl! Plus, it's bright and funky, so you can't go wrong. I am sure the orders will come pouring in for this one- teehee.

The addicts had a great convo anoche to discuss the upcoming Festival which our lovely LooselyLucy designed the poster for. We discussed recycled wood wall hangings, bloody cupcakes, face painting and more. And cap'n was there, so I'm sure we talked about whales some. Anyhow, looks like we are really getting a start to things around here! But, if anyone knows of a party that needs halloween cupcakes, our Quupcake Quueen has some great ideas!

It was great to see the addicts again! I would say let's do it again sometime but I am afraid my enthusiam for skype (and lack of camera control) scared everyone. So here, to help you recover, is little purple burd and wurm...and paper bag.

I am so happy to be joining the Craft Addicts blog!
Here are two of my sock animal shenanigans for my starting course.... Both made for friends' babies, hence all the sewn-down detail and chewing-safe parts. Heaven forbid a child should choose to chew on the tail. Then I'll have to make tail-less animals and what self-respecting animal would go without one of those!
