I received!   My wonderful 'partner' sent me 12 fabulous inchies, plus 2 that she says were fails or maybe less fails and more just silly ideas that didn't quite work.  AND!  a fabulous altered altoids tin!  So awesome.

the 12 inchies: 
The second one was the one she used the iron, the crayons and the handmade paper on.  that paper is in a few more places too.  My fav has to be the Wizard of Oz inspired one!  Oh and the upper left corner has hearts on it too, but you can't quite see that.... But it's "hearts cake!"

The 2 extra "didn't work so well" ones:

And the awesome Treasure box altoids tin!

Okay, so in all honesty, I'm never making inchies again.  LOL  by the end of it, my head hurt, and I was mildly frustrated with just how long they actually take!!  Or maybe they just took longer, as I had to keep getting up to put my kids back to bed..... But none-the-less, I'll admire the inchies others make.  Paper crafts are not so much my thing....

296  Perhaps this'll remind me.... in Needlework: Completed Projects by Belladune on: February 04, 2011 09:40:35 AM
I'm trying really really hard to keep my daily life on track and I spend waaaaaaaaaay to much time on the computer.  So I devised this computer monitor cover to keep me off the dang thing.
I saw this quote on a hoop in the OTT Hoopla and I fell in love with it.  Apparently it's from Fight Club, although I've never seen it.  The quote to me is like "Cease the day"  or "make every moment count", only it's a bit darker. I like darker.  I, for what ever reason, have it in the back of my head that I could walk out the door and die.  I really need to start using every minute purposefully.  And this will hopefully keep me away from this time sucking machine Tongue

Modeled by my beautiful Apple

Close up of the stitching

Question for those of you who are computer savvy, though.  It's simply elastic around the back, so it should be okay for not over heating my computer, right?  Please tell me so.  If not I'll frame it and hang it above the computer.... but I much like the idea of covering it. I've tried just shutting it down after a certain time in the day, but I'll just turn it back on again.  And this is more a visual reminder of not using it, and I'm a visual learner :p

298  People of the world, meet the Snailtaur. (pixplotion) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Belladune on: January 30, 2011 12:35:32 PM
The Snailtaur, unknown keeper of the swamplands.

The Snailtaur is generally a friendly creature, though they can be fierce when need be.  Living in the swamplands of the world, they protect the helpless creatures, and fend off human population of these areas with their magical spells.   Snailtaurs camouflage into their environment by sinking back into their shell.  Their hair grows to look like grasses and weeds you would find common in swamplands.  The unexpected burst of color through their body is used to confuse their predators and humans.  Although a protector of the swamplands the Snailtaur does have natural enemies, such as hawks, eagles, some ruthless humans, and carnivorous beasts.   
Snailtaurs would, at first glance, seem to be defenseless, but as earlier mentioned, they posses great magical powers derived from nature.   They carry staves that are adorned with magical talismans they’ve collected during their studies to become powerful magical beings.  Their massive upper body strength also helps them when they do occasionally get into physical combat.
Finding a Snailtaur is said to be the best of luck.  Humans who befriend Snailtaurs will be quite fortunate as they share a common thread with the creature.  Having a Snailtaur in your Home will bring fortune and luck.

poppet inspired body and jointing.  Poppet abs tutorial used (will link that in a bit why didn't i bookmark that? I can't find it again!  If anyone knows where it is, please let me know!)

Shell is a wet felted vessel.

Snail bit is scraps ironed onto fussible interfacing, then crazy stitched for security.

Hair is a hand made piece of felt, cut into pieces to resemble swamp weeds

Staff is a warped wooden knitting needle, painted, sparkled, leather wrapped, and adorned with 'Magical talismans"- glass beads, feathers, wood beads.

The Snailtaur was Created for Rlynn, in the Weird Stuffy Swap.  It was born from her theme "Swamplands".  He was a blast to make and really dug me out of a creative hole!  I was sad to see him go, but know he's very well loved in his new home!

Uber girly; BFL, silk and sparkle; Drop spindle spun; yardage not yet calculated.

I was also looking into this fiber week  I just think the timing is off for me.... Which I'll see if I can work anything out with my now retired parents....  I'd really like to learn a lot more.  Here's to hoping!

I received a fabulous package from Dizzerspinninround!

First some number bean bags for Alexander:

(I agreed to let her send them unfilled, as they'd weigh a ton and up shipping considerably)

And as an extra because she's awesome (and was snowed in, but it's mostly because she's awesome)  a bunting for Josie!  my favorite part is the 'o' with the heart in the middle!

Thank you so much, these are so awesome.  Can't wait until I feel better enough to finish up the bean bags!
