21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 1:12 scale miniatures on: August 08, 2009 08:48:54 PM
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!

The underside of the bench- I based it off this one: http://newenglandminiatures.blogspot.com/2009/06/simple-bench.html

Here are my most recent bigger projects:   

I was pretty impressed with myself for deciding to use a real shell for the snail.  I have tons of them lying around too, so I'm sure there will be more happy snails in my future.

And polar bear:

24  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Can I get some camera reviews? on: June 11, 2009 08:45:25 AM
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.  Undecided 

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.

Any suggestions? 
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Yarn-optional fiber swap on: April 19, 2009 05:44:03 PM
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?

We've merged!!  Come join the discussion for a huge fiber/yarn swap!
26  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Flocking/adding fur on: March 09, 2009 01:58:40 PM
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.

Here is my monster challenge entry.   Perhaps it is more dragon/alien than monster?  I don't know.  She is all wool except for the glass eyes and pipe cleaner neck.

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Terrariums on: February 20, 2009 07:49:49 PM
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?
29  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I'd like a miniature swap please. on: January 05, 2009 02:54:23 PM
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?
30  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / A plethora of needlefelted everything on: December 09, 2008 09:45:47 AM
So I haven't posted much lately, and this is why... I've been crafting my butt off.

My first larger endeavor into needlefelting:

The process got much quicker after the first one:

Note: I in no way support or encourage keeping any type of fish in a space this small. This project is purely for aestetic (?) purposes.

South Parkians

Ugly Bear

And owl butts:

I actually made a bunch of snowmen, but only took pictures of this one, for some reason.  And it was my least favorite
