351  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap -- December 2012 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: January 08, 2013 12:10:16 PM
I sure hit the jackpot today!!  I got three awesome cards

First, from La Chapa

Is that gorgeous or what? It is for my honeybees theme. On Thanksgiving day, we had a honeybee in our house... heaven knows where it came from! We are in upstate NY so it was out of season. It looked very troubled so we brought it outside and fed it some honey. It seemed to recover after eating and flew off.
I really love this card!!

Also from La Chapa on my fennec fox theme

a stunning piece of art. Both cards done with chalk and pastel pencil.
Thank you so much, La Chapa.

Next, on my moveable theme, from pilarfarmer, it looks like an ordinary partly cloudy day...

but you move the thingamabobbie at the bottom,

and slowly, a butterfly begins to emerge from behind the cloud...

Thank you so much, pilarfarmer. I truly love it. You have inspired me to experiment with moveables myself. I am nervous, but must try it!

352  All things retro... in New Swap Theme Ideas by blupaisan on: January 06, 2013 12:23:44 PM
I think a lot of folks here enjoy the retro scene. I would love to do a retro swap. It could include all sorts of goodies.... aprons, art, greeting cards, recipe boxes, alterred tins for holding bobby pins (oh so retro), ATCs, pin cushions, crocheted or knitted things, embroidery, pillow cases, regular pillows, all sorts of jewelry, jewelry boxes, T shirts, clocks, alterred mirrors, notebooks/diaries, bags, wall hangings, planters, pencil holders, the list goes on!

353  Have we done this yet? WHAT to do with all your favorite ATCs... in Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. by blupaisan on: January 04, 2013 01:10:08 PM
I have sooo many wonderful ATCs but putting them in a photo album is getting kinda old and I was wondering if anyone is interested in either creating something else will all the ATCs you have, or coming up with a bang-up way of displaying them?

Here is the awesome Fennec Fox card I just got from Oath Keeper. I love him! It is titled Basking the Day Away. Makes me want to be this little guy for awhile....
Thanks, Oath Keeper!

355  barn and birches, late fall (pastels) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by blupaisan on: December 29, 2012 03:00:34 PM

This is my favorite pastel I have ever done. I love working outside. Actually, I don't think I do indoor work at all with pastels....  This hangs in my Mom's room in her nursing home.

357  Wood burned drum holder for Hubby in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blupaisan on: December 28, 2012 02:02:44 PM
My husband's round drum is always rolling off the shelf. So I bought an antique box and burned these words into it. They are significant because he drums after meditating...

358  a foot of snow calls for a bootjack! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: December 28, 2012 12:37:03 PM
 Smiley  I made a bootjack today!  It was a heckofa process, since I could not find my power saw and ended up rubbing soap on an old fashioned saw to make it flow better.
Then I finally found my power saw, but insanely chose for the small base piece an old cutting board. I swear, the saw went one millimeter per minute across that board and it took all day to cut that small lower piece!
Anyhoo, here is the jack, finished, and it works like a dream.

and detail of painting...

If enuf folks respond, I would be happy to develop a tute. This is the first bootjack I have seen on here and winter certainly requires 'em!!

359  taught hubby ATC-making today!! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by blupaisan on: December 26, 2012 03:48:06 PM
We are newlyweds and obviously I am at the stage where I can get him to do 'most anything.... I told him it would make me sooooo happy to do an ATC with him. Here is what I did...

This sycamore stands just outside our back deck and is about 150 years old. I loved it the moment we looked at this apartment.

Here is what my hubby did...

He says he has not done any drawing since he was, like, a kid. He is an awesome guitar player but has been a bit hesitant to pick up a pencil or brush. I think he did well. He made a hummer cuz it is my totem, and he gave me the ATC.

the happy couple last April. Married on Earth Day

I just received two wonderful cards from gala_apples!
The first is for me....
Daisies ( one of my alltime favorite flowers)

and acoustic guitars, for my hubby.

  He loved it as much as I love my daisies. This is the first ATC he has ever gotten. We have a date for me to tute him on how to make em this afternoon. Can't wait.
Thank you so much, gala_apples!!
