191  Lila and the Chicken in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: February 05, 2014 08:46:45 AM
 I am participating in the Winter Nerd Battles
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429436.0#axzz2sSxgsNvA
and it is SO much fun. We get challenges each month and try to make projects fit each one. In January we had a challenge called "Put a bird on it" and our project had to contain a bird of some sort or something bird related (feathers, eggs, ect). It is up to you to interpret it as you will.
 I am terrified of three things, heights, my Dad's driving and birds. Just thinking of this challenge sent a shiver up my spine! I tried to think of a nonthreatening bird but since those are only urban legends I went for a less threatening bird. Or at least I tried too. I have been informed that chickens are quite vicious actually. Who knew? Not me because I am not getting near them!

 Here was my offering. I call her Lila and the Chicken. My husband says it's a rooster. LOL! Again, not getting close enough to check.

 Hope you like her. I think later on I may try to do something else with the background. Smooth it out or something. Not sure.  Tongue
 Thanks for looking!

I'll let you know how they work. I also heard you could fill a pouch with scented kitty litter to absorb the odor or even some sort of charcoal for fish filters. Haha.
 Okay, got my other project done today too!

Battle/Challenge:  January - Put a bird in it
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Lila and the Chicken
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431330.0#axzz2sSxgsNvA
Brief Description: There are a couple things in the world that scare me, heights, my Dad's driving, and birds. When I saw it was a bird challenge I cringed.  Embarrassed  I tried to think of a nonthreatening bird and since there are none I tried to think of a less threatening bird. A flamingo first came to mind and I thought that would be too Alice in Wonderland-ish and I had done that already so I went with the chicken. Man, just thought of a penguin! They don't scare me! Anyways, here is my offering - Lila and the Chicken. Promise, this will be my last drawing for a while!

Battle/Challenge:  February Welcome to Jurassic Park
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Dino Odor Eaters
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Truth be told, I have stinky feet. They could kill a dinosaur in fact. I had decided I wanted to make something to try to help my house shoes out because they are awesome. I accidentally wore them to work one day (it was way to late to turn around when I realized it and I am required to wear steel toes) and I was so worried someone would smell those bad boys! For this challenge I made dinosaur track shaped odor eaters! They are packed full of baking soda.  Wink I am keeping my fingers crossed this works. I have a couple more ideas if it doesn't.
Project Picture:

Everything I have made so far this year, except for the purse, was made from my stash. I am proud of that.  Smiley

194  Valentine's Day Heart Bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: February 03, 2014 05:53:58 PM
 These were so cute and simple I thought I would share them on here. It took no time at all and I was able to use all stash fabrics!  Cheesy
 My husband's nick name is Cupcake and I found some not too girly fabric that said Cupcakery on it a while ago and finally got to use it! I am going to fill them with Hershey's Kisses.  Kiss





 I made one for my husband (as mentioned above), step-son, Mom, Dad, and sister.
 Hope everyone has a fantastic Valentine's Day!!!!

Bonus Points: none
Project Name: Red Riding Hood necklace
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I am a huge Red Riding Hood fan. My husband agreed to let me do the living room in her theme. I got some amazing artwork off Etsy and they sent me a business card with the art on it as well. I have never done these necklaces and really want to try it. I got instructions of Pinterest and cut up the business card to come up with this!
 I love it! I see more necklaces in my future. These are so fun to make.

 I have my "put a bird on it" project about 85% done and then I will have January done!

 Okay, got my purse done! I used a wintery gray swirled fabric for the majority of the purse. I thought gray was very "wintery". I used a dark red for the accent color. My Nana used to love cardinals and she always put out a bunch of cardinal stuff when it got cold.
 I hope you guys like it. It has layers of ruffles on the front, a magnetic closure, and pockets on the inside. The back interior pocket have elastic to keep your stuff (cellphones, cameras, etc) safe and sound and easy to find. There is also a larger open pocket on the other side. I used a beige colored fabric for the inside to make it easier to find thing in. I like a lighter color fabric for my interiors.  Smiley


 I will fill out my questionnaire now! LOL!

 Hey there everyone! I received from Ludi on Friday and I know everyone wants to see what she made!  Wink  And trust me she did not disappoint!

 She send me H.P.Lovecraft The Horror in the Museum. I can't wait to start this. I have always had a curiosity about Lovecraft so now I will be able to try him out.

 For that OTT she made me an amazing embroidered necklace book. It has a cat on it, which I absolutely LOVE. Ludi's embroidery is so phenomenal. I can't believe I actually got a piece of it!
 Thank you so much! I love it all. I got the book I am sending out on Saturday so I should be sending on Monday. Hope you like what I made even half as much as I love what you made Ludi!!!

 Love Annie Lennox. I can listen to "walking on broken glass" over and over and over. Beautiful art journal page. It has such a soft feel with the colors.

Project Name: Scrappy Fabric Bracelets
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I chose my favorite number, three, which just so happens to be the number of cats I have.  Wink I used LesliesHappyHeart's pattern for these cute bracelets. Here is a like to her tutorial http://lesliesartandsew.blogspot.com/2011/12/scrappy-braided-fabric-bracelet.html
They are so easy and fun to make! There are THREE bracelets each with THREE strands of fabric. You basically braid them. I was able to use my stash once again except for the rose buttons. I saw them and couldn't resist!
