Okay, so I know I didn't really start blogging until November, but my craftiness began far before then. Here is a chance for me to share some of the fun Lascaibar projects that ROCKED my household in 2010 (Not all projects were created by me).
1. Tiny Diva Baby Shower
Martini glass favors filled with lime green jelly bellys and covered in black tulle. Finished with a hot pink ribbon.
Center Pieces: Martini glass filled with jelly bellys, zebra ballons tied to them (not pictured), and hot pink mini-heels for the soon to arrive diva. Tables were covered in black cloths and lime green tulle for runners.
2. Where the Wild Things Are Art by Daddy (and Desmonster)
This is one of four in my older sons room. I will soon share all of them with you.
3. String Easter Egg Baskets
Created by Jayna, Andi, Jackie, and Sarah
Hanging to dry
My final basket (It was pointier on top than I would have liked)
Andi's Basket. I liked hers the best. Jackie and Sarah's didn't make it at all. This will have to be a do over.
4. Painting Baby Boy New's Room
This is what we called Emmett before he arrived, which is when his room was in progress.
Daddy got a little obsessed with this project. The clouds took forever and had to be "just right." He was immediately very proud of his moon though. Also, see that wall tapestry? I will be doing a post about that and what it is all about in the next few weeks. (Hint: It doubles as an AWESOME felt board).
5. Tile Fireplace
After two years of searching for the right tile for our fireplace, which meant the floor of the hearth was concrete a showin', we found this gorgeous tile. I love it!!!!!!!! Thanks to my oh so talented hubby for the install.
6. Buzz Lightyear Candies
Yes, that's right, I hand-painted this bad boy!!!
Then I got lazy after a few and made the rest in solid colors.
This was the BIGGEST project of the year, nine months in the making, our fabulous #2.
8. Apples from our Trees
(Used for Apple Sauce and Apple Butter, not pictured)
That's right, you can grow frruit in the desert. Don't the peaches look yummy too.
9. BOO Photo Holders
We had this adorable shot of E and I wanted to give them out. I knew I had a TON of Halloween paper because I once thought of having a party (about 6 years ago) and never did. Ah ha! I made these based on my original invitation idea. Cute delivery system right.
Oh yes, you can't tell by the photo, but he is wearing the cutest Jack O Lantern diaper cover EVER!!!
