111  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My first tiny haunted house on: September 24, 2010 05:55:24 AM
I have joined the tiny haunted house swap, but before I did, I wanted to try and make one to make sure I even could. Here is what I came up with -

The foundation and chimney are made of chicken grit, leftover from when my bf and I had chickens.

the tree is a dried weed from out back.  the leaves at the bottom of the tree are real - I gathered turned maple leaves and put them thru my food processor

It is hard to see, but there are different curtains in every window.  the basic structure is posterboard, with white colored pencil drawn on.

the skeleton at the clothesline is made from thread. the jackolanterns are tiny painted styrofoam puffs stolen from an autumn sprig at the dollar store.  (that did not sound right.... I paid for them, then stole from the sprig, lol!!)

there are real flowers (golenrod bits) on the front steps.
and when you take the puff of smoke out and stick a pencil down the chimney hole, you can push down and turn on the inner light....

I put in a real spiders web from the back yard, but you cant see that in the window either in photos...
I cant wait to get started on my swap haunted house!!

113  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / polymer atc: real cat whiskers! on: September 21, 2010 08:41:31 AM

Here is my halloween atc made with both paper and polymer clay (which was so crumbly I want to take it back to the store to get a refund!) I live with 12 cats and constantly find whiskers on the floors. So these kitty whiskers are real!

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Details of Swap:
Do you love seeing new places and things but don't have the money or time to travel as much as you wish? Do you enjoy seeing how other people live?  This swap is for you!  Grab that camera and start snapping pictures of your home town, your vacation spot, anything interesting around, whatever you want!  Then you will swap with your partner 24 (or more if you wish) pictures and a crafted frame!

In this swap you will be required to take at least 24 shots AND craft a frame. We will also be sorting participants into film (disposable or roll) and digital groups.

Here are the rules:
1. The minimum number of photographs to take is 24 pictures, although it is between you and your partner should you wish to take more.
2. The frame can be an altered store-bought frame or a fully-crafted frame.
3. If you are going digital, you must print copies of at least 24 of your photos.  It is also helpful to get your pictures put on a cd and then send it along with the prints!
4. You must post at least 3 of your received photographs in the swap gallery to share with others. The whole point of this swap is to see all the cool, different pics of where and how everyone lives.  So posting pics is SUPER important!  If you are unable to post pictures, please DO NOT sign up for this swap!!
5.  Please bookmark this thread or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.
6.  You are required to send a Delivery Confirmation (DC) or a proof of posting (for non-US nationals) for this swap. PM me and your partner with your DC number when you send and again PM us when you receive. You will not receive feedback until after your partner has received.

Here are some helpful tips from past rounds:
1. Please do not only send pictures of people, try to vary your photos but above all try to accommodate your partner's tastes.
2. When developing the film, ask them to scan to CD as well. Its a few dollars more and saves you the task of scanning the prints yourself.
3. If you upload photos to an online gallery (photobucket/flickr/etc), why not add the link to your gallery posts so we can see your photo-booty.
4. Please also post at least once a week in this thread to let me know you're alive.

NOTE: if shipping to another country, PLEASE mark package "contains film, DO NOT X-RAY" to avoid the film spoiling.

n.b.  I cut and pasted all this info from Bethiej's last swap.  thank you to her for all the great info.

118  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two of my unusables become a terrarium on: August 25, 2010 10:07:35 AM

My little glass snail keeps falling off the table. Now he has no antennae!  So I made a safer place for him to live before he loses his head altogether! I took a glass display cover that is supposed to be upsidedown over some silk flowers or a statue, and turned it right side up. Then I took a widemouth canning jar ring whose inner bits have been missing for forever (and I kept telling myself, gee I can use this for SOMETHING...) and perched the glass within it. Now I have a groovy terrarium with moss and ivy, a rock and Sneed.
119  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / toy broom becomes wall decoration on: August 25, 2010 09:34:12 AM

When I saw this broom in the dollar store, I had to have it!! It is about 24 inches long. I decorated it by adding a ribbon and painting the handle with flowies.  It hangs in my kitchen, to go with my yellow, white and red themes.  thnx for looking!

120  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Nature's great for making ATCs on: August 24, 2010 02:05:52 PM

this last one is not a nature one, but a Tokyo subway map zentangle.

thanks for looking!
