Smurfette as Katy Perry

So in honor of the Smurf movie coming out Friday July 29th , I thought I'd bake a cake.
Recently Katy Perry (the voice of Smurfette) was seen with her usual jet black hair dyed blond in honor of the movie release. So I thought why not make a dark hair smurfette for the occasion.

I sent to pics to Calvino- KP aficionado-for the official OK on the cake and I got the royal blessing- along with "add a string to the balloon and its beautiful" 

Duh I totally would have forgot too.

I used a sparkly gel for the eyes and eyelashes.
Not quite what I had pictured in my head-but not too bad for a 1st try lol.

Sorry the pics are a little dark...

Q's Blankey

So I was not the first person to use the long loom set...
It's ok =)
Q said he wanted to make a blanket with it bc he makes hats quick, this should be no problem...
He looked through my yarn and found the Red and wanted to go to the store and get grey-which I don't see too often. He said if he couldn't get grey he would use white. Then I said it would look like a candy cane (I love Christmas what can I say? lol)
So that made him determined to find Grey haha.
We went to Pat Catans and the one skein he found right away was $4/skein for a 3.5 oz. I told him I would get the first few but then he was on his own. And wouldn't you know it-he brought money lol. I told him to look around some more to make sure there wasn't anything cheaper.
Guess what? He found a skein with twice as much at half the cost. I believe it was red heart.

Crazy Cat

So I was at work one day and my assistant took pics of my older cat Gracie...

IDK why she had her tongue out...and far too.
She did it on the 4th of July too after she drank water.
I called her name and she just stared at me like that then slurped it back in.

Wilton Press

I'm not sure what I am going to use this on-but it looks pretty cool.

You fill the cavities with cornstarch than the fondant-like a play doh mold I guess.

This is one of his new favorite spots to sleep.

This can't really be comfortable, can it??

New Loom Sets

I bought more Knifty Knitter looms!
I haven't had time to try them out, but my assistant sure has!
I shall be posting his work of art doon...

This loom is for an adult hat, but the stitches will be closer together.

This loom set is for Hats, Scarfs blankets and much more.
My assistant is using this set.
