661  Re: Embroidery Hoopla Swap Gallery (Send-outs Sept 20) in The Swap Gallery by sheepBlue on: September 04, 2010 05:26:13 PM
dharma_rebel asked me to post a picture of the hoop I sent her since she received today and she is a bit busy to post herself right now.

I had a lot of fun making this and have a shared love with dharma for foresty/woodland critters and toadstools  Smiley Of course I couldn't resist using some felt in this.

663  A flock of birds in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by sheepBlue on: August 23, 2010 03:20:30 PM
I made these fun birdies from sculpey clay, decopaged with decorative paper. The nests were crocheted with scrap bits of handspun.

I think they turned out pretty cute  Smiley I'd love to hear what people think.

I received the best whimsy package ever!!! Audio must be a mind-reader because everything she sent is so perfect and I can think of so many things to do with everything I'm swooning (in fact as part of my recovery this evening I just worked on something that included a few choice pieces from what she sent me  Grin).

On top of everything was a sweet card that held 2 atcs and a set of inchies! I love them - the subtle colors and arrangement is awesome. I find inchies rather challenging because of the insanely small format.

After that the first things I noticed were a really dynamic ornament, and a rather creepy cool mini canvas  Smiley The ornament is already hanging in my crafty area and the canvas has a place of pride on my wall.

Also loose in the box was this fun assortment of things; two vintage bulbs!!! Need to think of something cool to do with those, a sweet bird stamp (that I now notice I covered up in the picture, doh.), bird figures, a cork, decorated clothing pin, cute house that is destined to be altered, and an awesomely creepy little doll figure that will have to be transformed into a sweet art doll/weird sculpture animal thing (the way my mind works, it's weird lol). Love!!

Next I picked up this GORGEOUS altered tin that has a fun fairy godmother type person on the front which I love  Cheesy I included a couple of angles, as well as a cute altered cube that might be turned into an ornament of sorts when I can figure out how to put in a headpin. Inside was a cute ceramic owl, an awesome doll arm and hand (so creepy right now lol but I'll turn it into something cool and hopefully less creepy haha), a few other bits and bobs, my faves being the typewriter key and wax seal.  Grin

There were two largish sacks but I had to put them aside and save for last  Smiley I spied a small manila envelope at the bottom and pulled out all sorts of lovely papers and ephemera!! Oh audio I love that you love what I love because it makes for a great partner hehe. I love the bingo cards, there's a HUGE playing card there too, punchella!! (I don't think I asked for it, but I've been wanting some for a long time), and a bunch of fun tickets.

Now for sack 1: It was so cute itself; it has the definition of collection printed on it; totally going in my school bag for tiny bits and bobs that get lost easily, and inside it tons of fun stuff, mostly gaming themed it looks like! I love the bingo pieces, wooden dominos, grapefruit lid (made me so thirsty for grapefruit when I saw it lol), and some ADORABLE plastic glasses hehe. Need to think of something brilliant for that. Also pictured is an awesome wooden puzzle that is destined to be altered obviously LOL. Love it.

Sack 2: This awesome U.S. Mint sack contained the jackpot of metal do-dads!! (did you sew it shut audio? I had to rip it open, I couldn't figure out any other way to get in lol) The highlights of this are some AWESOME!!!! camera parts, neat vintage scissors, a mini vintage compass, some dollhouse sized pans (I almost bought some of these for you! haha), tags, I could go on. I love it all so much!

Audio you are too awesome! Everything I love over and over and just looking at the pictures make me smile all over again. You are totally a whimsy all-star. I'm ready to swap again with you any time  Wink Cheesy THANK YOU!!!

I received from panthermoon a couple of days ago and finally got a little free time to post pictures

There's a sheet of braille type which is awesome! Some fun vintage images, stamped images (I think I would drool over your stamp collection lol), and some thin tulle fabric I think, which will be fun to incorporate into some mixed media pieces  Grin Thanks so much!!

667  Papergasm - a bunch of atcs, inchies, and other random papieries in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sheepBlue on: July 19, 2010 10:10:40 PM
These have all been made for swaps - I feel good about getting back on the ATC horse and inchies are interesting, though I must admit I do favor a larger format  Cheesy

Here are my first attempts at some Teesha Moore style art. It feels a bit cluttered but I like how they came out.

I'd love to hear what you think! Thanks for looking.

Have you ever wondered how much you can fit in an envelope and still pay only 44 cents for it to be mailed to its destination?  Well, credit for this brilliant swap idea goes to lovesclutter!  

In this swap, you have one week to fill an envelope with random craft-related and/or crafted goodies from your personal craft stash and mail it to your partner(s).

Some possibilities are: mini crocheted/tatted/woven/knitted things, iron-on embroidery patterns, non-stuffed stuffie, hand drawn artwork, embroidered things, decorative patches, illustrated letters like in medieval bibles, shrinky dink charms, napkins or tissue to decoupage with, iron fusible fabrics, appliqus, decorative tape, stickers, fabric and paper scraps, vintage buttons, cross stitch fabric, magnets, bookmarks, needle books, finger puppets, earrings, cuffs, stitch markers, card cases, cup cozies, ribbons, fiber, little cute erasers, feathers, needle books, interesting pictures, inchies, patterns, whimsies, ephemera, beads, glitter, sequins, jewelry findings, lace, journal pages, photos, stamps, steampunk doodads, puzzle pieces, stencils, stamps, charms, rub-ons, trading cards, postcards, ric rack and trim, paper punched shapes, ATCs, thread, origami, keychains, recipes, Wonder-Under, friendship bracelets, pressed leaves/flowers, matchbook notebooks, flat pendants, small pouches,  ...Get creative!

Per the USPS website, here are the guidelines for the envelopes:

For first class mail, the weight must not be over 1 ounce to qualify for the $0.44 postage fee (caution: if you go over the 1 ounce limit, it will cost you $0.61 for an envelope which weighs up to 2 ounces).

Size limits:
- Rectangular; length is the dimension parallel to the address.
- At least 3-1/2 inches high by 5 inches long by 0.007 inch thick
- No more than 6-1/8 inches high by 11-1/2 inches long by 1/4 inch thick
- Surcharge will apply for nonmachinable letter This means it should go through a machine that turns it at a 40 degree angle.

Therefore, to qualify for the $0.44 postage fee, the key here would be to keep it more or less flat (so that it will be machinable) and to make sure it weighs no more than an 1 oz
(gotta love those digital scales!).

Since this swap requires little or no crafting time, you have the option of signing up for either 1 or 2 partners!

The Fine Print:
1. Good communication is very important!  It is your responsibility to inform your partner(s) and the organizers when you send/receive your envelopes.
2. Although this is a random swap, the general rule of thumb is to send out things which you would love to receive.  
3. No DCNs will be required for this swap (because the envelopes do not qualify for DCNs), but you must agree to resend to your partner(s) if the envelope(s) go missing (for whatever reasons).
4. Everyone who signs up for the swap must post in this thread, the more often, the better so we can see what you are up to and know you are still around! Feel free to PM me if you forsee any problems so we can help you. This should not be an issue at all, since this will be a very fast, fun swap. There is a little over one week for signups, and then a week to send out.

PM you approval message to me
