2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Seriously 3D ATC swap (signups 05/24/15 - 06/01/15; mail by 06/22/15) on: May 24, 2015 12:33:47 PM

Creation credit - sheepBlue

Join us for a 3D twist on ATC making!!  This is not an ongoing swap in the usual ATC manner. This is a make one (or two) and send it to your partner(s) after 3 weeks. That is the most time requested by one of our hopeful participants so we will do that time frame.

The general idea of a 3D ATC is to have a base or framework that does NOT exceed the regular 2.5 by 3.5 ATC size. Here are some links to examples of ideas and inspiration...

(the above link is specifically a 'chunky' ATC, ,which is solid rather than the  others below.)

Summer is nearly upon us, or will be by the time the hoops arrive at partner doors. Yay for that. (apologies to those in world areas where summer is reversed. Tongue)
What do you love to do in summer? Let your partner know and they will put it on a hoop that you can gaze at next winter as the snow flies!
Swimming - Canoeing - family picnics- riding with the car top down - digging for worms - really, let yourself be honest and include things in your questionnaire that you really love to do during these wonderful months.

- Please send only your completed hoop. No extras.
- There are no hoop size requirements for this round
- Piece can be embroidered or cross-stitched.
- Posting to the discussion thread is required at least every 2 weeks. Would love to hear from you each week, but understand this may not be viable.
- Have fun!!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Triple kitty portrait, requested by my daughter as an xmas gift on: April 06, 2015 09:28:59 AM


This is pen and ink and watercolor. From left to right, Beau, a kitty we fostered (Rosie and I) for nearly ten years, trying to tame him/settle him down. He was never adopted, til Rosie and her beau (no pun intended) got a place of their own and they became the permanent proud parents.
Next, is Ripper, the most recent and energetic addition to the family.
Far right is Zemon (a.k.a. The Zamboni man) who is around 17 now.


In frame.





It was so very interesting to do this portrait, as I found it easy to accurately portray the two kitties with whom I had spent so many years... i knew their subtleties and expressions. But the kitten... I had met him only a few times so it was so different trying to capture the essence a soul i did not know well!!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Woodland Egg, peek inside! on: April 03, 2015 05:36:02 PM


Done with medium chicken egg, sculpy, pebbles, twigs, floss, bark holder, other stuff, and patience! Couldn't believe I did not ruin any eggs. First cutting attempt worked!

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Hate to throw away all these adorable plastic pop tops from half-n-half jugs... on: April 03, 2015 06:12:48 AM


All I ever do with these is put them on my finger then chuck them. I could have a big collection by now and if anyone gives me a good idea, I won't throw them away anymore.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheep! on: April 01, 2015 03:27:27 PM


Thanks to AC/DC for the highly inappropriately inspiration
 and to my older brother Chris, who tenderly taught me the art of dark humor (at age 10)



If you're havin' trouble with the farmer's wife
She's givin' you the blues
You wanna jump the fence but it's too high
Here's what ya gotta do
Come to my coop, I'll help you regroup
 Find me any time
First hay bale on the right
I lead a life of crime

Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
(Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheep)
(Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheep)

You got problems with the hired hand
You got a broken leg
He handled you too rough at the trough
That's when the teardrops start
Come to my crate, I'll set the dude straight
 Or find me at the well
I'll tell you how I'll help you now
I'll send that guy to Hell

Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
(Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheep)
(Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheep)
Yeahhh

If you're sick of the neighbor kid, you want her gone
But you ain't got the guts
She keeps grabbin' your tail night and day
Enough to drive you nuts
Come to my pen, I'll help you and then
Together we'll make a stand
For a fee, that kid will be
Without the use of her hand!

Barbed wire noose, pitchforks,apples with DDT
(Done dirt cheep)
Manure pit asphyxiation, combine "accidents", hayloft falls
(Done dirt cheep)

Dirty deeds done dirt cheep. Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
Dirty deeds, do anything you want me to
Dirty deeds done dirt cheep
Dirty deeds dirty deeds dirty deeds
Done dirt cheep!    Aahhhh!





Scene constructed from the following...
Barbed wire and real barn siding from old farm where I live,
Cheep dollar store wind-up Easter chick
Hay is cut from my boss's grass rug (he'll never miss it)
apples are barberries
 Pitchfork came from specialized aisle of liquor store
zombie chicken arms
Matchstick fence
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Compost pile sculpture swap, anyone? on: April 01, 2015 05:44:57 AM
Do you keep putting scraps into your compost pile when you never even use it for gardening? I am sure a lot of us do. Such a waste. I have noticed when I add yet another handful of coffee grounds and banana peels to mine, the wonderful smell and the gooey texture, that, if a small amount of glue were added, I could easily work the whole mass with my hands and create a lovely sculpture or even useful items.

Things I would put on my list for my swap partner to make for me...

Hat to wear to the Halloween tea party
Small receptacle to hold my dentures overnight
Wall hanging with bits of dried orange peel at strategically placed grids sticking out so I can hang
   my house keys on it
Christmas ornaments
Lampshades for the bathroom
Altered picture frame to use with a fave pic of my ex.
