More inspiration! Here's an altered journal page that I did a while ago.

The writing behind it I copied from a scientific article on cuttlefish brain organization.

Wow rlynn, you aren't even going to count the ones so far this year? Definitely include swaps. They are half the reason I can get myself to finish anything.

My latest project (#26) is the first one for me since #16! I picked up this little footed ironing board in a thrift store for $2, but it wasn't in great condition.

So I took it apart, lined the top anew with a thrifted towel, cleaned the legs, lined the bottom because the particle board wouldn't stop flaking everywhere, and covered the top with this nice print from my stash. It's not perfect but it's definitely functional now and I like it well enough.

Alright guys, prepare to be insanely jealous. You have been warned.

My package from sikamikanica arrived today and pretty much blew me away! My four points now seem rather inadequate... anyway, on to the package.

First up, the paper she used for a note, which amused me.

What's in the box with the crochet closure?


And we have a decorated record... (going on my wall)

And HOLY POOP a crochet hat!

Yes, it is a crochet Priest hat.

It fits perfectly, and is so comfy!

And I saved this for last:

LOOK OUT! It's an ami Dio! YAY. He came wrapped up in this hairnet, which made me laugh. His fingers are poseable, but this is how he came. Grin

Jacket and shirt close up:

Back of the jacket and perfectly wispy/curly hair!

sikamikanica, what an amazing first swap package! Thank you so much I really and truly love it!

I really like the chickadee in the hat...

So this is a page that I promised a little while ago, inspired by my day of donating blood and watching Sweeney Todd.

I am acutely happy with it, despite the fact that I usually don't enjoy drawing people.

Oh Watership Down definitely wins. My copy is falling apart by now, I made my dad read it to me so much. Pretty sure he loves it too though.
I like the rabbits page, noooitare!

I recently found this book for free, "Better Homes and Gardens Family Medical Guide (1966)." Yoinked it for the pictures and medical jargon text. So this is my first page using things from that book - it was fun to do, but I am undecided about the final product.

I am sending in the morning, but in the mean time here is a teaser for sikamikanica!

Wow, we've got so many new contributors! I love the new styles.

imrahil, I really like your camping page. The shoelaces are great! I want to start using some maps, they look really cool.

Phizzy, that first page with Dumas is really cool. I love how the paisly with "word" in it looks like it's his speech bubble. Cheesy

noooitaremybirthday, I seriously love all your pages, I couldn't pick one that's my favorite!

I have a few to share today, not on any theme. The first began when I had some pink paint that I wanted to use up, and I kept adding bits over a few weeks. The note is something my mom put in my wallet one day.

The next one I wanted to experiment with cutting up the pages, so I cut some triangles from the edge and then held them back in place with a strip of cloth ribbon.

The hat doodle is a note my friend passed me in the library for no discernible reason.
Here's a good view of the cut out part:

My last doo dads from J_Kieviet:

Shiny! Right now the red one's holding my messy braid together.

Thank you J_Kieviet!

I've got some projects to show, but they are for swaps so I can only show the one that's been received. # 23 was for OTT 22; I made this little zippered pouch from e.r.i.k.a's tutorial.

There are some more pictures over in the gallery.
