1  New life for an old box in Winter Holidays by cackle on: December 15, 2014 08:23:31 AM
My bud racky found two small, identical ornament boxes some time ago and gave me one. It has been our intention to alter them and send them to each other. Well, you know how things go when you don't have a deadline!
We decided to partner up for the IYP and get these babies done. I'm so glad we did!
You can see the oh-so-adorable box she made for me here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437170.0

And here is the one that I made for her.




This was such a fun thing to play with! I love what racky did with the one she made for me and I had a blast making mine for her. I'm really inspired to get a couple more and play!
BTW, credit for the pics goes to racky....I was in such a hurry to mail, I forgot to get pictures. Thanks racky!

I had two partners for this IYP. My second partner was the amazing maxxev. She stalked me so well!
Behold the incredible Lepocampus!


She's absolutely gorgeous. About 4 1/2 inches tall counting her ear...those ears!
I think she's beautiful and original and so well suited to me. maxxev, you really scored a home run!


One more shot:


maxxev also sent me a beautiful wren ornament made from a polymer clay cane. Her cane work is impeccable...such amazing detail.


And a cherry on top....
A beautiful hand-embroidered Jack-o-lantern magnet.


Thank you maxxev! You're such an artist, it was a privilege being your partner.

I can't tell you all how much fun it was to decorate that little box! And racky is right....it's a good thing we had a deadline, we may never have got around to getting these guys done!  Grin

Here are a couple of pics of the great box she sent me. I love it so...it reminds me of the decorations I grew up with.
That little reindeer is vintage!


The wee package even has my name on it! Love it.


Thank you so very much racky!

I just opened the most delightful package from PerfectlyBohemian! I'm gobsmacked at the work and adorableness that PB put into every inch of this magnificent....

Needle Felted Hare!

He's HUGE...about 11 inches long. And GORGEOUS and I adore him. He told me he really likes Christmas trees and since I've just begun to decorate mine, he volunteered to help.
He hung the little bell ornament and paused to admire it...
 

He hopped on to my coffee table and asked for hot chocolate.


Please excuse me whilst I go make him some. He must be parched after his journey!
PB, Thank you so very much! I wasn't kidding when I said I adore him.
You have been an awesome partner...thank you!  Kiss

Package number 2 from my awesome partner, PerfectlyBohemian!

Here is what everything was wrapped in. Love the twine and the brightly patterned tape.


Next is a fantastic collection of vintage reproduction Halloween cards! I love these cards.


She sent me a sweet little mermaid...PB loves mermaids and I'm not sure if she knows how much I love them too!
A beautiful Thanksgiving card (her fav holiday) and a really fun game called Story Cubes, which MacGyver and I played last night in between trick-or-treaters.
We had fun!


And last but in no way least, PB sent me this wonderful trio of witches and cauldron. I can't tell you how much I loves these!
PerfectlyBohemian hand felted each of them and the cauldron. The awesome witchy hair is mohair. They're truly too cute for words.
But I'll say a few more....


These ladies were inspired by a pin on my Pinterest, but I have to say, the first thing I thought of was the witches in Terry Pratchett's "Wyrd Sisters" a book I love and laugh out loud at
every time I read it. I think PB has mind reading super powers.......


Thank you so much PerfectlyBohemian!

Oh, gosh, everyones packages are wonderful. It's like Christmas around here!  Cheesy

I received a wonderful package from PerfectlyBohemian on Thursday and was not able to post pictures until today. My apologies, PB!

Here is what met my eyes when I unloaded the box...
So many bright and colorful packages!


 An overall shot of what she sent and then some details....


Everything had a label and a great explanation of what each objects was about. She even sent something for MacGyver.
So very thoughtful and kind! (the Gardetto's and the bottle opener were addressed to him)
The bottle opener is the favor that was given at PB's wedding. Her hubby is a fab fan of home brew and so is mine, so it was perfect!


She hand painted lovely small pictures of her kitties and turned them into magnets. They are really adorable! PerfectlyBohemian
is a real renaissance woman...lots of skill in many areas!


She felted this absolutely gorgeous little sleeping bunny brooch complete with greenery and tiny little mushrooms.


Sewed and felted this beautiful sunflower brooch (her favorite flower)......


Transformed a sweet little doll into an enchanted forest being......


And burned this beautiful honey bee and comb on a truly lovely wooden spoon.


PerfectlyBohemian sent her favorite snacks, including some delish chocolate, crunchy seaweed wafers, Gardettos (for MacGyver) and some yummy coffee!
At lastly, some great books..she and I both share a love of books.


After opening the bounty PB sent, I learned that we have so many interests in common. So far, it's been really wonderful sharing with you!
Thank you so very much!

I just received the most amazing, enchanting piece of art from Killam Creative. It's gorgeous and I can't say how much I love it!
Pictures speak louder than words, so here they are:

A beautiful Fairy Forest shadow box. All the little details are wonderful....
   


And LOOK WHAT IT DOES....




It's truly an enchanting little jewel of a thing. The pictures don't convey how delicate it is and it smells really good!
So much sensory stuff going on. KC, thank you so much....I truly love it and will treasure it. ((Hugs))

10  Miniature Christmas Tree Kit in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cackle on: September 20, 2014 03:33:58 PM
My sister and I were partners for the IYP swap and she mentioned that she like my Christmas tree ornaments, so I decided to make her a kit in miniature-
A dozen 1 inch by 1 inch ornaments (plus two 1/2 inch ones).

I had an old cigar box that I covered with some nice red and green papers. I left some of the wood
showing as it was so pretty.


I made dividers out of book board and covered them with the same papers, glued them in and used some gold ink on the edges.


I used lots of different papers for the ornaments (which are 1"x 1" blocks) and a lot of Stickles sparkles and
metal findings and beads. I drilled holes top and bottom in each ornament (after I covered them with paper) and used E6000 to glue the beaded head pins in place.




I made a Merry Christmas banner and covered an oblong piece of book board in green paper to wrap the banner on to keep it tidy.
I found some tiny red and gold garland, tied them up with ribbon and added those as well.


A fun and very rewarding project!
