Celebrating in Wonderland: Arachne

This is Arachne and she is the Living Dead Doll I will be dressing up as for my birthday party.  I'm going to attempt to make my dress completely.  Wish me luck!  I've never done anything with sleeves and since my birthday is in June I might just make it a tube dress.  It will definately have red tulle under and the red sash though.  As for the shoes I found a super good deal on black pumps from Charlotte Russe.  I was going to buy a couple pairs and I'll paint one of them to look like Arachne's shoes.  I'll also wear some thin red socks and a red scarf.  As for the red spider on the dress I was thinking about making it so that it's detachable.  I want to be able to wear the dress again, with or without spidey.

Make up is going to be the best part about getting dressed up for this party.  I have the perfect red Anna Sui eyeshadow for this.  

Props and decorations are going to be a blast to make.  I want to have a life sized doll box for photo ops and streamers and table toppers made from doll parts.  The fliers will have a link to a quiz, Nel found, that tells you which Living Dead Doll you are.   :P

Which Living Dead Doll are you?  Take the quiz!

Celebrating in Wonderland: Come as you weren't

More pictures from Michele's birthday party!

Al and his sister!

Shauna made an apple!

Crafting in Wonderland: Spoiled!

My partner for the pin cushion swap completely spoiled me.  Check out the goodies.  She chose the cup and saucer because it reminded her of my blog.  :)

Celebrating in Wonderland: Happy Birthday Michele

The cheerleader, the prom queen, and the nerd!

Other costumes included:

Update in Wonderland: April seems to be the busiest month.

What have I been up to lately? Well . . .

I sent out my wine swap package and recieved my pin cushion swap package! Agh. I was soo spoiled.

I have a ton of ideas for the Victorian swap, but haven't had the time to start. It's ok. I know once I get started it's going to be hard to get me to stop.

We celebrated Michele's birthday with a theme party. The theme, High school stereotypes - Come as you weren't. I'll be sharing pictures later.

Nella, Michele, and I have been upgraded to bridesmaids in our dear friend's wedding. It's going to be awesome! The wedding bands have skulls on them. And last night we finally found dresses our bridezilla might approve of. lol. She's not really a bridezilla.

We finally came up with a new theme for my birthday. I thought it'd be impossible, but Michele came up with the greatest idea. My birthday party is going to be a Living Dead Doll party!!! I'll either dress up as Arachne or Kitty.

Crafting in Wonderland: Pincushion swap

My partner received already so I can post the pic of my pin cushion.  It's a tea cup with a removable tea bag and button topped pins in "springy" colors.

I really hope she likes it and gets some use out of it.  :P

Celebrating in Wonderland: Happy Birthday Viva!

Happy 1st Birthday Viva!!!

Viva with her presents from aunty Nella (the bone) and uncle Khris(the tennis balls).

Pictures taken April 13th.

Shopping in Wonderland: How Cool is definately really cool

I was putting together a polyvore set last night and discovered How Cool, an online shop with really neat stuff.  They have apparel, shoes, jewelry, costumes and even housewares.  I really want the brass knuckle heeled shoes and this adorable ducky.  I also found shirts on sale for Allan.  The prices are reasonable and they ship internationally so I'm sure they'll ship to Guam.  Nella even found lady bug and bumble bee platforms.  She just has to decide which she'll get.  :)

Crafting in Wonderland: Cards in the Queen's court

  This past weekend we celebrated my friend Colleen's 25th un-birthday.  She had a Mad Hatter Tea Party.  So I made Allan, Viva and I these costumes.  It was super fast and easy, but I think they turned out really cute.  The spades were just cut from felt and hot glued to the shirts.  Isn't Viva the cutest card in the queen's court?

Crafting in Wonderland: Victorian Swap

Victorian by drea_nicole featuring Anna Sui jewelry

Crafting in Wonderland: Pins and Wine

So I finished my pin cushion and should be sending later today.  I hope my partner likes it.  I actually made 2.  The first one was not "spring" enough so I'm keeping it.  And after I realized that was lame I had a brilliant idea.  I can't share the brilliance until she receives, but I can show you the one I kept.  :)

The wine swap is going pretty well too.  I've completed 2 items and I'm starting on the 3rd.  I'm having fun too.  I can't wait to get started on the fourth item.  That's the brilliant one.   :P
