Here is a package I sent out for the Jazz up my dollhouse swap, I wanted to give it it's own thread:
The bunny is needlefelted nylon, my first time using nylon fiber and I love it! The little brown specs next to the bunny are turds. I didn't make the knife, cutting board, or grape basket, and I actually forgot to add the basket to the package, sorry Jessarama!
I need a good digital camera with a great macro feature. I love the Cannon EOS series, but that it a little out of my price range, even at the used/refurbrished prices.
Most of the pictures I take are of very small things (1/12 scale miniatures, jewelry, and the like) and are taken indoors. I don't really like having a lot of different lenses for different things. Two is probably the most I would want to juggle.
The fiber swaps I've seen seem to focus on yarn. I love yarn, but generally have no use for it. But I don't want to disclude you yarnies, so maybe we could try to pair up people wanting to swap yarn? I am becoming increasingly addicted to fiber lately and have been building up my stash. Who wants to swap?
Hi, after being led here: http://www.pixiwillow.com/critter_gallery.htm by craftylittlemonkey, I have regained my fascination with clay and "fur" mixed media. Has anyone tried this? I have plenty of wool, would that work for flocking? Do you just add a bunch in a bag, cover your sculpture in glue, and shake? What kind of glue would you guys recommend?
And yes, I know there is a difference between flocking and adding hair the way the creator of aforementioned website does, but I'm interested in both, and I'd like to hear your experiences.
I've been wanting to make some terrariums for a while now, but I don't want to go tear moss/plants up out of the ground. Plus it's the middle of February. But my work has a huge greenhouse and while I was walking through today I found a bucket of torn up moss and rotten tomatoes. So I removed the tomatoes and swung in to goodwill on the way home, and voila! Terrariums on a whim. Hopefully they live... I've never actually tried to grow moss before. I tried to pick out the pieces with the most dirt attached:
Now. I have a lot of this:
leftover. I'd like to dry it and use it for projects but I don't want it to turn brown. How do I do that?
I know there's a lot of you out there who have blythe dolls and the like, and I know they need stuff. I've seen a few "craft for my doll" type swaps, but I've never joined, because I don't have dolls. I do, however, like to create things in miniature, and my felted creatures also need stuff! So I propose a general "miniature swap." The questionairre could include what type/scale miniatures you are into as well as any specific wishes (clothing, furniture, food items, pets, etc).
I've never organized before, but I'd be willing to give it a shot, unless someone else would want to take over (or co-organize?) I dunno. What do you guys think?
