emilywilde made this wild grapes (complete with my favorite element, twirling vines) and she is wonderful! The fruit is felted and I love the leaf. she hangs above my computer table.
thanks so much, emilywilde!

My gallery shows it upright. If it posts sideways like the preview shows I will try to change that.  darn. I tried twice. something wrong with hosting.

Here is the droolishious piece made by Luvebuggy99!!
My favorite color is turquoise and I just love this! polymer clay I believe. And I adore scrollwork! I am so happy with this art and it sits on my computer now.
thanks so much!!

sheepBlue made this lovely turquoise themed creation. I knew I had a chunky card coming to me and am thrilled!  of course the color makes me swoon but everything about it rocks. Windchime!!!  Too cool. and tiny birds nest!!

I wish I could have taken a decent pic. I tried to put it in the proper light in order to show the kitty inside. Guess it did not really work.
SheepBlue, pleeeeez say you have some good pics!
thank you for this great piece of work catered so well to my tastes.

6  Ickle mousie (non-paper theme) in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by blupaisan on: February 27, 2015 01:42:24 PM

I made this for a theme of non-paper. Pine bark is backing, gingham curtains, matchbox flowerbox, tiny fake flowers stuck into foam, and the mouse is shredded yarn turned into a wet glob and them manipulated with a needle. Seed bead eyes and the whiskers are from my collection since I have had so many kitties who leave them on the bed.
It was so much fun to make! Wanna do more.

I have so many to show off!!
from our fearless leader kosmicgirl, theme is surprise.

I am amazed. this is so unusual and wonderful. I try to find shapes in the clouds every day! I have no idea how you could know! It is such a beauty. Thank you so much!!  And thanks for the extra paper!

from bunny1kenobi, theme is unlikely greeting card

Yep, never seen one like this.  Hysterical!
And the inside...

And even the back is awesome...

I just love what people come up with for this theme of mine. I love it!
She also crafted this for my inexplicable theme...

I have not heard about this since I was a kid. I left all my cards at home (the only place I can post pics is at the library) so I cannot recall what this is called. a horse created with white rocks. Is it in the UK?
thank you bunny1kenobi. Both cards are wonderful.

then from Amaranth_in_oz, for my Day at the Races theme....

Wonderful details on this card. there seems to be so much in that tiny 3.5 by 2.5 space! Love the expressions on both...horse seems gentle and perhaps a bit bewildered by what he is put thru each day and the lady looks positively snooty as so many day at the races dressed-up ladies do.
Love this card! thanks so much, Amaranth_in_oz.

8  Your earliest sewing memories... chime in! in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by blupaisan on: February 23, 2015 03:11:41 PM

At what age did you learn basic sewing? Who taught you? What was it like? What were your first humble projects? Was it by hand or machine? Do you still possess any of those items? If anyone responds, I will answer these questions too.

rockingbearranch sent me two this week! first, for my ferns theme, second for funny road signs.

I realize while looking at the ferns one how appropriate it is to have doily there... both that and the fern fronds are equally delicate. so pretty.
the road sign is real, tho rbr says there is really no easy chair there but perhaps there should be!
thanks rockingbearranch. I love both!

this card takes my breath away! I am stunned by the beauty of this creature and the skill of Patraw, the artist.
It has 2 sides!!

subject is Wild Cats and without looking things up online, I am guessing it may be a lynx.
Both sides are equally delicious but the snowy pic is my fave. Look at that crouch and the tiny white snow specks.
thank you so very much, Patraw. I just love it!!
