Okay, now you've got me thinking with that Kraken skirt idea! I don't often wear skirts, but how cool would a cryptid skirt be? I can picture Nessie wrapped around the skirt, or a forest of trees with Bigfoot hiding amongst them, or mountains and a Yeti...

I will take one of each please LOL

It's been ages (and ages) since I sewed a piece of actual clothing...so that would fall outside of my comfort zone...which is a good thing Smiley

The counter is only three feet tall. The others are afraid of heights, even that low Tongue

I think it's more to do with how high up my head is off the ground. Even though it's only a 3 foot counter, my head senses that it's at least 8 feet of the ground, so that's when the vertiginous feelings kick in Smiley

Inselaeffchen- What cute tags! I like how the spider is embossed to give it texture.

artsycandice- I can't wait to see what you come up with for your Christmas bag!

gozer- Great skirt! Excellent fabric, too! I love how in the main picture you can't tell that they're skulls.

Ludi- Best.Ninni.Ever! I never would have thought to give a Ninni tentacles!

calliemae- I love that your owl has a bowtie and interchangable hats. How cute!

4  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R3! SU:CLOSED; SO: Nov. 3, 2014 on: October 20, 2014 01:56:00 PM
I agree with roler! My first patch was made as a practice patch for Round 1 of the "Yet Another..." swap.

I have to attend a wake tomorrow night (and it's a 3 hr drive round trip) for a good family friend, so my plans for the evenings this week have been completely shuffled around. It looks like the bulk of my patch-making will happen at Craft Weekend this weekend. But, at least I can focus on that- I don't bring any school work with me (unless it's crafty... last year I made signs for my classroom).

I've got a couple of different techniques planned for this batch. Still a lot of embroidery, but a couple of new things, too.

Does anyone know if I can run a freezer paper backed piece of fabric through a laser printer?

ETA: I just did a quick Google search and found this:

This could save me a lot of time!

Remember teachers get 15% off everything (even sale items) at Joann and Michaels.  If that's not enabling, I dunno what is Wink

I always carry my JoAnn's card with me, but I have to remember to bring one to Michaels. They used to just ring it in whenever I asked, but now they want proof. We have new IDs, so hopefully that will work! I also got an educator discount at Silhouette. Smiley

Ludi, what a neat way to do the arms and, it would make the costume even creepier!

Smeddley, I have Sculpey, but I don't know if I could do the tiny painting part. I do not have a very steady hand...

vincentvanbuck, when I head to the store on Thursday, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled. I usually try to avoid the clearance section, but I might be able to find something there, especially if it's holiday-themed. I can always repaint it. If not, I can use a coupon! Smiley

YEAH cADDc!  I'm glad I twisted your arm could be encouraging.  You just need to give up that sleeping stuff and you'll be fine Grin

Smiley

I'm actually hoping to step outside of my comfort zone (no crochet, and no stenciled t-shirts Grin ) with this swap, crafting-wise, so now I can't wait to see who my partner is so I can start coming up with ideas.

But for now, I'll go and toss in some laundry and alphabetize some assignments... and maybe do some dishes... I can think about this swap while I'm washing dishes...

Some day, every empty space in my house will be covered in craftster yummyness.  I plan on expanding to the ceiling eventually Grin

I have a bunch of rubber ducks, and a friend of mine said that I should stick them upside-down to my bathroom ceiling.  I have to admit that I really want to do that, as soon as I figure out the best glue for it... it'd be a great way to display them that is completely out of the way!

I love this idea! You could velcro them on and change them around every once in a while...

And, I think, even though I have gotten almost nothing accomplished on today's to-do list ("take a shower" and "eat pancakes" comprise half of the items I have checked off), that I will just go ahead and submit to the peer pressure my questionnaire! I have 3 free nights this week, so I can get a lot of my list done (I have to stick a session of cooking in there, but I could do some of it tonight). So...off to cut and paste!

roler- Great news on the Japan front! Hopefully, everything goes smoothly from here on!

vincentvanbuck- Great Autumn shrine! Did you make the frame or find one at the store? That's one of the reasons I've never made something like this... I can nevr find the perfect frame! I love the Frakenstein coin purse- I think Frankenstein is my favorite of the classic movie monsters. And, I love the latest pillowcases! I was in JoAnn's the other day, but was short on time, so I had to avoid the Halloween fabrics. I need to stop in later this week, and maybe they'll have Halloween stuff on clearance and I can score a great deal! Smiley I like you bat shadowbox, too (and it's good to know that no bats were harmed in the creation of the display Smiley ). Love the ghost light garland, too! And now, I feel the need to run to the dollar store to pick up some Halloween goodies...

artsycandice- I love the faux fox head and the pearls are a nice bit of whimsy! ANd, congrats on another Featured Project!

Calabaza- Thanks for the added info on the pennies and the fabric bowls! And, I can't believe how tiny that pumpkin box is! It's adorable!

Smeddley- I love those little houses! And, after reading that they're neslted in a matchbox, I love them even more! What kind of clay did you use? And, the Psithurism drawing is fantastic, and it's nice to have a name for that sound, which I also love! Your Firefly cross-stitch is fantastic (and now, I really want to re-watch the series!). The Dragon Zill case is really cute! Was stitching the zipper in a pain in the butt?

gozer- I LOVE THIS BAG! I love the movie poster fabric and the perfectly perfect green fabric you paired it with. I also love the Aesop's clock... And, if you paint the hands, I vote for blue to match those spiky things in the lower right. And, a bacon pillowcase! Because everything truly is better with bacon!

bunny1kenobi- I love the skully lip balms! I was just at McDonald's (they make pancakes way better than I do Wink ), and their Halloween Happy Meals are from the new movie "The Book of Life," and I decided I need to go and see it just for the imagery alone!

FreakieGeekie- "because I'm the only one who's not afraid to climb on top of the counter to reach the ceiling." LOL! The counter is not even that high, but I don't know if I could climb on it, either! You did a great job with the display!

Ludi- What a great costume! Now, I really want to be one of your neighbors! Are the hands/arms permanently raised? They look so cool, but I'd have to have to hold them up all night Smiley
