I came home from a weekend away and discovered goodies in my mailbox!  Goodies galore!

First, from jillybeans, two cards...
One on my cats theme

Gosh, I love this card. I have always thought I should be a kitty (in a loving household of course...) and want to strike this pose.  This orange one reminds me of my dearly departed Woody, my best cat friend evar!  I love the way there is white space around the kitty. It's like an aura of peace.

next, for my favorite childhood stuffed animal, I present jillybeans's BunBun.

She says bunbun is now way more worn out than this pic shows.... typical use of a beloved stuffed animal. I think it is hillarious how as kids we come up with oh-so clever names, ahem, for our creatures!  Great job on bunbun!!

Next, a funny snowman from javaannie. I love the quote, and ya just know when that birdie flies away, he will have left a gift for the snowman to wear til he melts...

Then from Robinpich, on my doorways theme...

I think the technique on this is ubercool!  She calls it packing tape transfer. Allows you to do multiple stripey colors. Really neat. The doorway is very inviting...
I apologize for the pic. Do you have a better one?  Do not know why this one was fuzzy. I tried lots of times.

Lastly, on my Scotland theme from fancybutch

I love words that run two ways if you know what I mean. And the outline of the piper made me soooo nostalgic for the auld place.

Thank you sooo much, crafters, for your wonderful work. I love every one of em!!

472  Pro-house-mouse card! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by blupaisan on: January 21, 2013 01:31:09 PM
So, I just came back from a ski weekend.... cabin in the woods. Mice abound in the kitchen. They have a gizmo that makes noise that is supposed to keep them away, but instead we find mouse droppings on counters, in pots and pans, in cuttlery, all over every clean tea towel. Everyone is ticked off about it, but personally I think we can learn to share the cabin. So I made this card and hung it up above the stove for all future renters to consider...

The droppings glued to the bottom are real...
The outside is birch bark that I pulled off a dead tree.

The inside is watercolor and pen and ink.

This is the wonderful Herbs card that cabaute made for me. I love it! She says she is more of a beginner for art, but she did an awesome job in my opinion. These are 2 of my fave herbs.
Love the tiny leaves on the left one...
thanks so much, cabaute!!

474  4 vintage image winter fun cards with quotes in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by blupaisan on: January 13, 2013 04:25:30 PM
I just noticed on the website that I go to in order to give away and find free stuff, that there are quite a few ATCs up for bid and they are going at a good 'price.'  So I made these to put on the site...

Thanks for looking. Sure were fun to make!

I am posting what Dread Lady got from me awhile back. It is on her things with mustaches theme.  I actually saw one of these for real pulling into our camping spot at a folk music festival!

I only just now noticed that the grill looks sorta like teeth under the mustache!  Didn't even mean that to happen, ha ha.

I just opened an herbs card from corchen..... first, when I pulled the envie from my mailbox I actually squeeeeeed.  Look at how tiny it is!  I put a penny on it for reference...

Then, a gorgeous bit of paper explaining the card.... it has plantlife embedded in it.

And finally la piece de resistance...  her first ATC! (corchen is a newbie with us).  I think she did an awesome job!

I luuuuv texts within ATCs.   It is from a poem, "Muiopotmos, or the fated of the butterflie" The spelling looks like is a very olde poem indeed!
I love the framing, the bit of herb at the top, so meticulously cut out. Thank you so much, corchen!!  I think I will display it in my kitchen.

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!

478  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!

479  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!
