DECEMBER 2011: 
simple SPIDERMAN THEME




i made spiderwebs with white yarn. my house is VERY decorated with christmas attire.
to make a web... start by making an * astrik * pattern and then from the center out make a spiral and tie off when each piece of yarn crosses.


 i used a dry erase marker for the kool aid pitchers- to help tie in the right theme without the permanent artwork. fast and easy!

my son wanted a "jello cake" with super hero theme. i used black shoe string licorice (not easy to find and not easy to use). twizzlers black licorice.
the eyes are filled with cool whip (i filled the cool whip in a ziploc and then cut a corner off to squeeze it in place then i smoothed it out with a spoon).
this was not an easy breezy thing to do. the shoe string licorice was pre shaped in the form it came in and i had to massage it to my liking. then once it touched the cold jello it hardened up again. but thankfully you can tell what i was going for :)




SEPTEMBER 2011: 
simple BATMAN THEME

i have found that dry erase markers will help me create absolutely
ANYTHING i need for just the right occassion!
and doesn't leave a permanent picture on my glassware!
i'm so cool right?

totally love printer ink and a little imagination on microsoft word.
