I am first to go!!  Cheesy

I received from Audania1 today. First I'd like to say thanks to Audrey for such a beautiful and thoughtful item. I just love it! One of the villains listed on my q. was Ursula. What she didn't know was the song "Poor Unfortunate Souls" is one of my all-time favorite Disney songs. So she created a needle book with those two in mind. I hate to call it a needle book though because it is SO big and roomy I could put more than just needles. My small sewing scissors and embroidery floss can also fit in the roomy pockets. This book measures around 6x6 I think. It's huge. Check it out!!
Here is the cover:

Here is a closeup: "I've mended all my ways" is embroidered. I love how she used these buttons as Ursula's suction cups.  Wink

Every page was sewn with beautiful stitching details....

Thanks again. I love it and will be using it for a VERY long time to come.

Project Name: Small Envelopes
Project Link:
Brief Description: I found a few envelope patterns on pinterest and decided to make some in a size that would be great for ATCs. I go to my local Goodwill once a week and look for books in bad shape (pages missing, binding problems, etc.) and recycle the pages in crafts. I found a super cute children's story and used its pages to create these envelopes. I think these measure 3.5x4.5 if I remember correctly.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Mason Jar Gift Tags
Project Link:
Brief Description: I bought a new crafters workshop stencil and some new stamps at my local hobby store when they were half off. I made these coordinating small and large paper gift tags. I stamped ink over the stencil first. I stamped the mason jars, etc., onto white cardstock (some were watercolored) and cut them out and pasted onto the tags. I also used black ink along the edges of the tags and some different washi tapes for an interesting contrast.

4  Video Game Wall Art - several pics in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by DearBluebird on: June 09, 2015 09:40:41 AM
I have been saving some old issues of Game Informer Magazine and decided they would be perfect to make some wall art for my boys bedroom. I used a scrapbooking 1 inch circle cutting tool and cut out a lot of circles. I had two canvases, one I painted black and the other white and neon yellow. I then glued 19 rows of 9 circles on each canvas and added some design with cheap craft paint and a dylusions stencil. I think they turned out pretty cool - my kids loved them. Also, it was great to recycle the magazines. Thanks for looking!

Brief Description: My boys have a subscription to the gamestop magazine "Game Informer". We have saved all the old issues and I decided to use them to make my boys some art for their bedroom. I had two white canvases and here is what I did.....
I painted one canvas black and the other I painted splotches of neon yellow paint. I used a 1 inch circle tool and cut out a LOT of images from our magazines. I used modpodge for paper and glued the circles down in 9 rows of 19. I then used a dylusions stencil and added some design to the canvases. TaDa! Smiley

6  Re: Monthly Theme Dotees - MAY MUSIC GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by DearBluebird on: June 03, 2015 12:36:20 PM

In my q. I told my partner, Smmarrt, that I loved 80s music especially Joan Jett and Adam Ant (along with some other references). Today I received my swap package. I was thrilled when I opened it to find Adam Ant. This dotee is so wonderful. It instantly made me smile and I have been humming "Goodie Two Shoes" ever since. It's just so wonderfully 80's. Here is a pic of my new dotee along with a pic of Adam Ant for reference. Thank you, Susan.

I made these for Kwality570 for her summer theme. These were the first ones I made in my very first round ever on an atc swap. I didn't see them posted and thought I would share. Thanks.

I received two ATC's. The Owl theme card is from Pioneer9. I love it so much. Aren't they adorable? The second card is a needle book made by Arstycandice for my sewing/crafting theme. What a clever submission for that theme. I will definitely put it to great use. Nice choice of fabric btw.

I received a card from Rockingbearranch for my retro ladies with attitude theme.  The text reads "Oh yeah I'm so glad I stayed up all night making these amazing clothes." Thank you RBR, I love the card. The colors and style are just perfect.
