man- go away for 3 days and come back to 4,000 posts!!

post #1 of 26

I went to a friend's 3 hours a way for 3 days just for a little caking get-a-way. We both had a blast.

We didn't really learn anything new, it wasn't meant for that. But we worked on the skills we already had making new designs.

We purchased a polymer clay book and pulled out the fondant:

The last time I made booties was with a paper pattern. Now I have the cutters. Major difference in how easy it all goes together!!! Worth the $8!!!

And as a side note....

Joan and I at our church's Couple's Blessing Crowning Ceremony. Joan's not thrilled with flowers in her hair. She was a very good sport though!

It ended up being a lovely ceremony. I made 12 sets of crowns, each set different and with the couple in mind.

Thanks for looking!

I also had a blast catching up on all I missed.

According to the book she is a flower fairy.... It was a book on "woodland creatures."

Thanks!

Dawn,

Where did you get the bootie cutters? Also, do you know where to get cutters to make little boxes for individual wedding favours?

Thanks in advance,
Suzanne M.

P.S. I like the crowns!

Thanks, cookieman- actually we're going into our 8th year very soon. This was a Valentines service at church for couples. It was very fun.

suzyqqq27- I got my cutters from a friend who had an extra set. I know that CK sells them and I have an on-line friend that sells for very decent prices. I'll get her information and post it here as soon as she send it to me. CK also sells the box sets you're talking about. I also have lots of molds for boxes and babies and cribs and such.

Is this the type of bootie cutter you are talking about Dawn?

That's them!!! I used a paper pattern before made from the diagram they are showing on that very page, which I'll be glad to email mine (ready to print) to anyone who wants it. But these cutters were worth every penny- so much easier. I paid around $8 with shipping.

Congratulations to you, too Cookieman!

I would love the bootie instructions. My e-mail address is prettytoya@prodigy.net.

prettytoya- you will last forever if you remember just a few tiny little details:

It's not the end of the world if he throws his socks on the floor (or whatever little bad habit he may have).

As long as he works hard to support you and the babies and comes home to where he belongs, he can throw his socks anywhere he wants.

Remember to love him and give him kisses when he least deserves it.

You'd be surprised at how how happy you both will be and how willing he will be to watch the sock tossing if YOU keep your attitude in check. Conventionally speaking, men are very easy to please and truly just want to please their woman. It's women who have the attitudes. So, if we watch ours, they kind of just fall in to step.

Oh yeah.. back to topic... hahahahaha......

Your bootie pattern is on the way.

Cali4dawn,

Wow, I borrowed several books about polymer clay from the library to try and make some items out of fondant and/or gumpaste. Its great to know that someone else had that same idea. Your flower fairy is cute! I haven't made anything yet but now that I've seen your results, I'm gonna get busy. Thanks for sharing! Oh any tips? Did you have any unusual problems?

prettytoya,

I also have been married three years. Good luck. Thanks for the info Dawn. My husband is bad about taking off his socks and shoes and leaving them wherever. I'll try to be a little more lenient with him icon_wink.gif . With him, a two year old, and a seven month old, it seems like all I ever do is pick up dirty clothes...but there aren't another three people in the world that I would rather pick up after.
