1  Re: Fake Swap Craftalong for Swap Junkies!!! 2015 in Craftalongs by suereal on: July 27, 2015 03:35:08 PM
LOVE the wee monster one Grin.  They all looks so well made for such small things Grin

AIMR-- I am HELping!  *like a toddler helps when the grown up is one the phone...* Grin

So I received from my partner in the FAKE Set the Scene swap!  She sure took her time....but I love what she sent so I guess I'll forgiver her Grin  All the things are for my little laboratory project.  MLLP is going to be a place for me to keep and remember little bits of things...I own a surprising amount of sentimental little things...

All right, I'm going to start with my favo thing first Grin

This little cutie was made from my very first watch ring (see example of said item in the pic)  I have many fond memories of this ring...Including one of the Johns from They Might Be Giants commenting on it at a concert/signing..still makes me all giggly Grin

This is The Big Book O Stuff, where I can write down things about MLLP

I used computer paper, then stained it with coffee.  I used the coptic stitch to sew it, so it lies flat for easy of writing.

Then there are a few more specimen jars filled...

COSMOtic Particals, LUNAtic Fringe, and a Star JAR.

This is the wee me's new laboratory table.....easy clean surface Grin

A cute little tile table with an ugly secret...or maybe not too secret Grin

EEWWW!  What is that thing?!?...oh  yeah...It's my depression Grin  I figured an end table was the perfect place to keep such a thing Grin

And then I sent me..or she sent me...someone sent the other one this cute and sturdy book shelf for the specimen jars.  We included a few of the collection that will be displayed eventually.

So that's at least 5 things...and I may need to fake join again.  It's wonderful motivation and all of the me's are having so much fun goofing around with the MLLP Grin

aannndddd, since I'm posting anyway, I'll post the stuff I sent to my other partner, who hasn't posted pics yet

Kind of like the stuff I sent kbrison LOL.  A few differences though...I made a wire whisk for her, and a little gazing ball for her fairy garden, and a little raised tray.  The extras are a bit different too.  The broach is broken, but I thought the frame could be used.  The little oval was a scarf clip, but I thought it would make a nice serving tray.

Anyway...I hope she liked it all Grin

My turn!

I received from kbrison and today got the pics done, so here we go Grin

This is the whole package.  All in all she sent me a bean bag, furry pillow, fuzzy blanket, tiny bottles of death, a tool set, a photo of the Jetson's, a slab of rock (to maybe make a table of use as a window.  It's a nice piece of rock Grin), and some stickers.

She made me two poison bottles, because mad scientists all need at least two bottles of death Grin  And she sent me two empty ones for me to fill with stuff.  One will be glow in the dark radiation for sure Grin

Check out the cool tool set!  Many of the things are hinged and actually move Grin

Here's Zoey enjoying relaxing on the bean bag and fuzzy pillow.  And Tiny Me was able to get out of the lab long enough to show off her new lab coat Grin.  The coat was in the sticker set.  I was surprised to see it was wearable!

I love the bean bag, though I failed to get a good pic of it.  kbrison said she had made it already when I was going on and on in forum about the bean bag chairs in general Grin

Thanks so much for all the tiny goodness Grin

With a newly realized fear of Rainbow Dash in my heart, I decided I had better get moving on my Set the Scene Swap stuff.  I managed to even get one of partners swap boxes into the mail today.  Lo and beholder, I received from one of my partners today!  Go figure!  She hadn't even posted that she had mailed or anything.  Anyway, lets all check it out...

First I unpacked this adorable Puddles painting for my mini laboratory...I love Puddles Grin

Then came....

This adorable paint pot set.  The pots look to be two pony beads glued together.  Is my partner clever or what??  The holding tray seems to be skewers, popS sticks, and tongue depressors.  It may be too big for the laboratory, but Zoey will like it too. 

And then there are these two specimen jars for the laboratory..

Blanca from Animal Crossing
I got her from a gachapon (those coin toy machines from Japan.) a very long time ago...before I ever played Animal Crossing to be honest LOL.  I was just fascinated by the fact she has no face.  Now I love Animal Crossing LOL

a tiny rare cobalt blue Soot Sprite from Spirited Away.  SA is one of my favo movies ever.  I try and watch it once a year at least.

The little specimen jars are made from some clear tubing my Daddy gave me.  The tops and bottoms are glow FIMO

Man!  She just keeps spoiling me!  Check out the crystal ball for my laboratory..

I am assuming from it's little stand, that it can only see happy fortunes *crossing fingers*

This last item kind of blew me away.  My partner reached into my very soul and pulled out the true me..

How did she know??  Not even my Hub knows the bottom 1/2 of me is tiger striped!  Everyone knows about the tentacles and eye at this point..but not the tiger part!!  Here I am with a giant penny so you can see just how real the first pic is!

I just hope that she likes the stuff 1/2 as much as what she sent me Grin

OKies...I finally have a bit of time to post the amazing stuffie Bow and Sparrow sent me.  Anyone who knows me will see immediately how perfect it is for me...

Firstly, it was a little shy...

It was a good thing we had sushi for dinner.  I was able to use a shrimp tail to coax it to relax a bit..


She made me a VAMPIRE SQUID!!!!  How cool is THAT?!?  They are my FAVO deep sea critter, and one of my top 10 best animals ever list.  And she got lots of the little details in.  She even recreated it's photophores.  The tips of it's tentacles and protective inner spines are glow in the dark.  I failed to get it charged before bed last night, but I'll try and capture a glow moment later tonight.  I LOVE my wee vampy squid Grin.  She chose an excellent material to replicate just how odd it's skin is.  They can appear red to black depending on lighting and mood.   And they are very gelatinous, which makes true colors hard to see.  I love how she did the eyes.  It's a two hole button.  The stitching between holes makes the pupil.   So clever!

You are an awesome craftster Bow and Sparrow and I'm completely delighted with our swap Grin   and Thanks for resurrecting the swap Whistle  Grin  It was a blast and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the awesomeness Grin

7  Re: Setting the Miniature Scene Swap signups 6/5/15 - 6/12/15, sendouts 7/10/15 in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by suereal on: June 16, 2015 11:07:50 AM
OKies, finally had some energy to post some hints for my partners...

Here's my doll Zoey, with her stuffies and her favo chair.

And here's her personal post
Her body is 8 inches tall, and I'm rather sure she is a Barbie of some sort.  With her giant head she is over a foot tall.  She likes 50's and 60's Atomic/Googie style, and the cabin or Gypsy style.

And this is the little shelf I want to turn into a mad scientist apartment. 

The bottom slot is the apartment. It measures 3 1/2 inches tall, 7 1/2 inches wide and 2 3/8 deep.  The top, which would be the laboratory, measures 9 inches tall, 7 1/2 wide and 2 3/8 deep.  I will be closing the back up.  I want it to be slightly creepy, but mostly just odd.

Time for a nap now Grin

Yeah...I'm probably over thinking things...I just think I got the size wrong on the little poutine I made for the Canadian Ninni, so I'm giving myself a hard time.  I'm an ittybitty newbie Grin

9  Puddles Pity Party Tribute Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by suereal on: May 26, 2015 10:24:54 AM
For those who don't know who I'm talking about, Puddles is a giant singing clown on YouTube..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HtrbMy4mU4  <---Puddles singing Team

My Hub found him in April and I have listened to him nearly everyday since then.  I fake joined the Fandom Swap just to make myself a shirt....

There were about 8 steps to this silly shirt.  I just ruff drew the letters onto the freezer paper, used a chisel tip Sharpie to get the letters strait and such, then cut them out.  The red parts were just hand painted on.  I cut a separate stencil to do his crown.  I had to buy the rickrack...huge rickrack was not in my stash for some reason Grin.  I'm a bit AR when it comes to rickrack being sewn on....I hate it when it gets flappy.   SO I free motioned when I sewed it down and followed both outside edges.  I'm not sure how often I will wear it, but it makes me laugh when I look at it.  I also made a pompom wrist cuff.  Puddles has the habit of playing with his poms when he sings Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

I did it!  I finally finished my Fandom swap.  My partner probably thinks I forgot about her completely Grin

Let's start out with the large shall we?

I'm a relatively new Puddles fan.  My Hub discovered him in April.  Since then I have listened to him almost every day...at least once.  And his voice rings in my ears even when I don't watch his videos Grin  This silly shirt had something like 8 steps to get it all done.  It's a good thing it was for a swap or I probably would never have finished it Grin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HtrbMy4mU4  <---Puddles singing Team

The small is the Puddles Pompom cuff...

Puddles has the habit of playing with the pompoms that run down the front of his shirt when he is singing.  It can be a bit...disturbing.  I wanted to make a pom something for my partner and eventually decided the wrist was the safest place to put a pom Grin

My medium is in a different fandom.  My partner says she has become obsessed with a new cartoon...Uncle Grandpa.  What a huge pile of steaming oddness that show is Grin.  Her favo character is Giant Realistic Flying Tiger.  So, when I found an old Nat Geo about tigers while cleaning one day, it seemed like fate.  The background is a picture of my home town from a local credit union calendar.  I used 3 different tiger pictures from the mag to make GRFT do what I wanted.  I think it looks like she is takeing a rainbow bath Grin

And here she is on the wall..
