Grammie's Happy Kitchen

Grammie's Happy Kitchen

Special thank yous to everyone at the Studio for putting this thing on -- I've learned a TON.

Since there's been so much talk of baking and baked goods exchanging going on in the forums during the contest, I thought I'd go with a theme to record and celebrate all those domestic moments in the kitchen. When I was growing up, my friend Dusty's grammie lived a few houses down, and her kitchen always smelled like cookies. It was an awesome early-50's kitchen of the future (despite being the mid '70's), with yellow and blue flower printed curtains and always a mason jar full of daisies. This kit was inspired by Dusty's grammie.

Kit includes:

* a button, colored 8 ways (sorry Toiny. LOL)

* a clip, also colored in all the palette colors

* 3 aprons (one full, two hostess)

* 3 mixing bowls in nesting sizes

* one curled ribbon

* one shelf with bunting liner

* one handmade button frame

* daisies to use either alone or in a jar

* a scalloped plastic circle frame

* 5 jello molds

* a cast iron skillet

* a polka dot ribbon

* 1950's era fridge and stove

* transparent mason jar

* scalloped pink journal card

* New! Improved! word art

* pink polka-dot ribbon wrap

* "From the Kitchen Of" recipe card (printable, too)

* two kinds of stars cut from vintage recipe cards

* a flatware frame

* yellow scrolly frame

* Kitchen-Aide stand mixer

* hand-drawn string bow

* hanging hand towel with applique chicken

* the window withe the yellow happy curtains

* wooden spoon

There's also a full litho alphabet (capitals), and fourteen coordinating papers (10 patterned and 4 semi-solids, mostly in element patterns or in 1950's wallpaper). I think I stuck in a quick page in the tou/preview folder, too.

**edit 10/01**

Thank you EVERYONE for the kind comments and your support through this competition!!! I love you guys.

Hehe, I'm the first to see this, I just refreshed, love it! You have a very unique style - do you draw these things all yourself? And if so, do you have a bamboo already? Cuz if you do draw 'em, and if you don't have a bamboo, I sure hope you win, cuz it'll be a LOT easier WITH one, right?

I love this! I photograph a lot of my kitchen creations and I HAVE a 50s kitchen of the future, push button stove with electric coils and everything! I refer to myself as "Donna Reed" since as a student, I don't work and have dinner reasy for my husband when he gets home. I can see some fun layouts with this kit!

Thanks and GOOD LUCK!

Thank you, folks!

Your questions, answered:

@jen - I do draw everything myself, and I've got one of the professional Wacoms. (I'm a Creative Director/Marketing Director for starmakerexpress by day, and a lot of what I do ends up being professional illustration. :>) Sometimes I draw it on paper and scan it into Illustrator to clean it up, and sometimes I just draw directly into Photoshop/Illustrator (depending on the illustration) with the tablet, but it definitely comes in handy!

@nani - I am so. incredibly. jealous of your KITCHEN of the FUTURE! I have this *thing* with vintage kitchen stuff. My poor husband has to deal with me squealing in decibel levels only dogs can hear whenever we find vintage pyrex and such. And the day I found the fifties-era cake saver in pink copper? Thought my head would explode with glee. I totally should have drawn THAT.

@kimber -- I totally want to see those pictures!

@camperchow - Thank you! I'm definitely feeling shades better than prechewed gum this morning, thank goodness.

@jilly - Woman, that's your inner Donna Reed fighting to get out. Try baking some of that 5 minutes-a-day bread and we'll have to pry you away from the oven with a crowbar. Trust me here.

@SK - Thank you! I'm only here because of you and your awesome class.

@allergy_mom - I'm blushing. Seriously. Thank you. Bottom of my heart.

@kim - Thank you! I want it to be *my* kitchen. LOL!

You rock. Totally amazing. What a talent you are. I am so glad you recovered enough from your oral surgery to get this submitted. I love it and you as well, even though you got this submitted before I finished.

Super awesome kit, love all the 50s stuff and think I probably had most of these things and somehow, someway they weren't kept.

Tons of luck in the final.
