lindyv321 recreated a lid to make a charming winter scene. I love how 3d it is, how the house pops.  She used my fave image of snow on wintergreens. the background birches are stunning, especially against that particular blue.

the back, with cheery snowflakes

it now hangs against the rough barn wood in my room.
thank you, lindyv!!!

3  She's 85 and still making a living crafting. in Completed Projects by blupaisan on: February 06, 2016 10:33:23 AM
I just spent three wonderful days down in Boston with an 85-year old friend who has been supporting herself crafting for the past 50 years. I learned that her birthday is in a few days so I rushed home and made this shadow box depicting her craft room. while I was there, she was working on 'the dreaded Christmas balls' and fuming about it. So I had to make sure I had a box of them on the floor!

The painting on the upper left wall is a lot like those she does depicting local landmarks.

I adore miniature stuff but could not make this too small, as she had a stroke last year and it greatly affected her eyesight so she can no longer see small things. when I was there, I did lots of tiny work for her that she could no longer do. What a blast we had.

She was working with tweezers this week and kept dropping them in her trash where I had to hunt them down. So I also had to be sure to include her trash basket in this box!
thanks for looking!  It was a rush job to get into the post on time for her to get it for turning 86, but I think it came out ok.

my theme was different kind of creature in a rodent excercise wheel.
Oh my goodness, rockingbearranch did the  best job evar!!  A goldfish??!!  So awesome.
AND it is moveable. Both fish and wheel, on separate turners, move. It is stunningly gorgeous, wonderfully engineered, and so very very funny.
thank you so much, Barb!!

LadybugsAndBumblebees chose my Love Makes the World go 'round theme.
here is what she made for me....

So sweet, and very true. I love how the outer border is created with words!
the heart links between the people is very clever.
thank you, LBABB!!

have doubts that I can pull off what I really wanna do. I guess I need to have a plan B just in case.

Winter is very pretty here just now.

One fave thing I listed in my Q was finding adorable prints in the snow. I think it's squirrel.

got a sweet package from spikefan!!
first, some very very very badly needed brushes,

Wow, these came in the nick of time. I was beginning to get rather desperate.
then, she made a teeny tiny snail on mushroom

i am in love with this! Big fan of miniature anything (except poop) and amazed at the fact that there is even an eye on the snail!
thanks so much, spikefan!!!

10  Earrings...what to do with 100 saved kitty whiskers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: January 19, 2016 06:28:18 AM

My collection, after having my own kitties, and fostering many, is over a thousand. On sofas and chairs, on the carpet, on my knees. I love spotting them and popping them into my pocket, where they often go thru the wash and are lost.  I figured I could spare a hundred to make a pair of earrings.
No one I encounter has been able to guess what they are made of. Most guesses involve the word feathers.
These are two years old now and holding up well
