11  Re: Where to find... in Discussion and Questions by pottermouth on: May 12, 2016 01:59:51 PM
I have picked up jars of miscellany from antique/consignment shops many times, mostly because I like not knowing exactly what's hiding in there, and I also get a mason jar along with it. Recently found a squatty glass jar full of bright plastic animals and mermaids for $1.50. I bought an antique can of buttons and got some kid's tooth in the deal. That wasn't fun.

If you search "junk drawer lot" on ebay you can get all sorts of things, but it can get expensive. Also, Alpha Stamps is a good place for assemblage pieces because you'll probably find everything in one place. And don't forget to scour grandparents' houses (or the like) for things they no longer use; a real treasure trove in places like that! Good luck!

12  Altered Tins Galore! in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: May 10, 2016 06:46:42 PM
Actually just three, but it didn't make for an exciting title. The first two are Alice in Wonderland inspired (using some very cool inserts from Alpha Stamps) and the last is a simple and sweet tin adorned with a button and lace that came from my great-grandmother. It was given to my mother for Mother's Day.

Haha, I wish it were a real workbook. I'd totally read it! Whistler's Mother, in mini, is a masterpiece! Wow.

Here is the card of my own rotund kitty I sent to AugustBell for her theme of Cats:

Get well soon!  Kiss

rockingbearranch sent me an excellent card for my Bizarre Holidays theme, which are those odd daily observances like Limerick Day (May 12th, for those of you who are interested). She created a card for April 26th, which is Richter Scale Day, in celebration of the seismologist Charles Richter who developed the formula at age 35. Earthquakes are one thing I do not miss about the west coast; the burritos are a different story.

Thanks for the great card, RBR!

16  Miniature Cookie Cart in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: April 25, 2016 05:52:35 PM
I got my hot little hands on one of Alpha Stamps 1:12 scale miniature flower carts recently, but chose to fill it with tasty pastries instead. The little cart could be most anything though, like a gardener's wheelbarrow, a fairy wagon filled with ripe berries and acorn cap bowls, a pushcart for a peddler even!

Some of the sweeties in the cart are made from polymer clay, like the French bread, croissants, and creme filled chocolate cookies. The chocolate macaroons are also polymer clay. I used the discarded shapes from the cart's wheels to make the triangular shortbread, and the round cakes with strawberry jelly on the far right are painted pop dots dolloped with Stickles.

I'm lousy at remembering to take photos for size reference, but the cart fits in my hand, if that gives you an idea about how big it is. Actual size is 4 7/8" long x 1 3/4" tall, just right to cram in lots of little things. I had fun with this kooky project.

Here are my lovelies from AugustBell, a blue and bronze Ravenclaw cloth and a flower in my fave colors!

Also, some super cute stitch markers, which I have wanted to get my stitchy little hands on since seeing them in the HP Craftalong. Now I have my own!

18  Free Motion Bunny Embroidery in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: April 06, 2016 08:04:57 PM
The inspiration for this came from a watercolor print from Floss & Co., and was free-motion embroidered for the one and only cackle. I had difficulties replicating the original work into an embroidered piece, mainly because I continue to fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to sewing machine art, but the finished product is still rather charming.

(Picture stolen from cackle without permission because I'm lame) Thanks, cackle!

A really, really quick 1:24 scale planter box chock full of Spring blooms. Took me longer to write a blog post about it.  Cheesy

20  Dollhouse Flower Basket in Easter by pottermouth on: March 26, 2016 07:11:50 PM
This little rabbit basket has been floating around my house for who knows how long. It has held bread bits left for the fairies by my kids, a tooth or two (ew), and a few rings. Then I got all of these great miniature flowers from Alpha Stamps and knew right where to put them. Perfect fit!
