11  Re: Woodland Creature & Enchanted Forest Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: June 28, 2014 12:21:43 PM
Sooo, I was concerned that I would not be able to post my goodies from kaitibeeps in the next few days, but I found a way and so glad I can now show off the wonderful things this FIRST TIME SWAPPER made. She hit the nail on the head with my interests.
First up...

beautiful cards for me to use (isn't it, like, impossible to actually use these when ya get 'em cause they are too pretty?) My fave is on top.

Do not know how she knew I had just used up my last post-it, but here is an adorable owl set. and dangly earrings, my fave type. Nice and light. good for my lobes because I have been wearing heavy ones lately and they need a break!

Now THIS is a very very cool creation...

she is a fox! Check out the fluffy tail. I really love this paper doll. kaitibeeps has put alot of great details in this swap and one of my faves is the wee stars that hold this cutiepie together. I would love to know how you made this, Katie. it sure came out great!!


This is an altered tin! Adorable wee mushroom house. There are what I think are tiny shroomie folk on the roof, a total squeeee detail.
Inside...

Sweet deer, and a birdsnest (which is very very spiritually significant to me and I loooove  that she put it in)
Li'l black kitty peeking in the corner!!!!


I suggested that I could use a decorated blank book and kaitibeeps went one awesome step further and redid this garden journal!!  I am a huge gardener and can't wait to fill this up!!
I must know how this was done!! Gold shrooms on front, raised, and an extremely natural-looking cover with Nature's randomness of growth.
I am so very happy with my goodies, kaitibeeps. I can tell you worked hard on getting my likes and dislikes down. I can hardly believe this is your first swap. you rocked it!!

Here is grapeicepop's Maine card. Oh, how this makes me wanna go! It is the perfect representation of the state - blue surroundings, green shape, and that red red lobster. Love it! thanks, grapeicepop!

for Moveables, from WitchyPuOnline, a wonderful windmill that has the coolest handle in the back so the propellers turn. what IS that name of a windmill propeller? that can't be right.  Is it arms?

anyhoo, it is adorbs and I keep playing with it. lovely background, too.
thank you WitchyPuOnline.

Finally got the goods from Sparkledust! Unbeknownst to me, it sat in the post office for awhile 'til my partner gave me the heads up that it was there. Never got a notice, but here it is, safe and sound. It is a protective cover for my sewing machine.

The back...

Detail (sorry for the blurr) of its personalization...

Detail of one of my fave panels

And the stunning card that came with it


I am soooooo happy with my new cover. Sparkledust hit the nail right on the head with my tastes. Vintage images, lots of happy colors, and tiny flowers. I just love this piece!!
The card is wonderful too, with my favorite shade of blue, and absolutely perfect wee flowers.
I love how this piece is two-sided. I think she did a truly wonderful job.
Thank you so much, Sparkledust! And putting my Craftster name on it was so sweet of you.

14  Embroidery lesson from my DD in Needlework: Completed Projects by blupaisan on: June 02, 2014 08:06:24 AM

On Mother's Day, my daughter Acadian Driftwood,   gave me an embroidery lesson. she is very skilled in this, but I have not done it for about 40 years and needed some refresher courses. she taught me several stitches and I used them right away in two swaps. the above is for the 10 minute swap and below is an ATC.

I am so behind in posting the cards I have received! I have    internet access maybe ten minutes a week, so forgive me...
first, from Amaranth_in_oz, on my Little Old Lady theme:

wow, this chick has so much character! i love all the realistic details and the expression on her face. somehow I am not sure I would want to ...tangle with her!

Next, from Daphadilly Art, an ocean theme (resend from when the shells broke the first time, thanks so much!)

And the other one is my cat theme. She (purposely?) put my fave color turquoise on both. the sea background is so subtle and pretty and I am so glad the shells made it. I love the peacful feeling of the kitty on the roof.

From Mountains and Clouds, my moveable theme.

the hula girl! And her skirt swishes back and forth.

Adorable,. and so well made. I need to pay more attention on my own moveables, as M&C did on this one, making the skirt nice and sturdy. A really fun card!

From  Rockingbearranch, also moveables, plus two extras!

and turn the wheel and the light goes off.

how  neat is that??!!

And the extries...


oh my, all these lighthouse images make me yearn for the seaside. they are all so very pretty and delicate.

Then from jo_mama, on my Gandhi theme...

Love it! Background is so cool and I would like to know more about it... did you spend hours putting wee paint dots on? I have not heard this Gandhi quote,and so glad to be introduced to it. i very much like how the lettering of each word "describes" the thought.

so, thank you all so much. I am truly blessed to be receiving wonderful things from talented Craftsters!!

I received two for the price of one from fancybutch on my cats theme.
I love both of them. the dude in the tie is awesome and the stamped kitties have a wonderful feel to them. I also like the texture of the paper they are on.
thanks so much, fancybutch!
