31  Re: Put a Bird On It! Swap - Send out Friday July 27th in The Swap Gallery by thisbirdsabsurd on: August 09, 2012 05:00:23 PM
Hooray!  Hooray!  My package from camelama has arrived!!  It was full of goodies so I'll start off with the extras - including a couple of things from Archie McPhee, which just happens to be one of my favorite quirky stores!!

Next we have this fabulous reusable grocery bag!  Love this fabric!

None of you can possibly appreciate this next thing - sachets filled with organic lavender that camelama picked herself!   Mmmm-mmmm!

Check out this silly little chicken pouch!  And have you ever seen cuter fabric than this lining???

How about this t-shirt? I am SO wearing this tomorrow!!

And last but not least, a cute little bird toy - my cockatoo took an interest in it before I even had a chance to hang it up!!

Thank you so much camelama!  This was a lot of fun! Cheesy

32  Itty Bitty Owls and... in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thisbirdsabsurd on: July 19, 2012 05:32:01 PM
Here's another little something I added to the swap package I did for the Put a Bird On It swap...

They're quite small - (that's a nickel in the background) - Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl, Screech Owl and Snowy Owl - oh!  And their teeny tiny supper.  Smiley

33  More Tiny Birds in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by thisbirdsabsurd on: July 19, 2012 11:12:32 AM
For the "Put a Bird On It" swap I did a take off on a project that I did last year.  The last one was 25 tiny birds - this time it was six - all of them on my partner's list of favorites.  Smiley  Done in ink and watercolor:

1" x 1", raised mount

-and here's a closer look.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Okay - I don't care what anyone says, I think suereal wins the prize for "wickedest match box"!!  First of all it arrived in a small white box with a great big eye pasted to the back side - I understood this when I opened the box and found THIS!!!!

And believe it or not - this was what was INSIDE!!!!

The tiny scroll inside had this ominous message...

-I'm not taking any chances - who wants me to make them something cool from some of these trinkets???
Here's a shot of the jaws opening to reveal the box inside -

And finally, I had to share this picture.  My parrot was sitting with me as I took the picture and he kept trying to get a closer look and was saying "Oooooooh!"  Smiley

Another secret I discovered as I carried it in from the car tonight (yes, I opened it in the car) - IT GLOWS IN THE DARK!!!!  Which intensifies the creepiness factor ten fold.  I will NOT be sleeping in the same room as my new little friend.  Wink
  Thank you so much suereal - you outdid yourself!!!

35  Dia De Los Muertos Pin Cushion!! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thisbirdsabsurd on: June 01, 2012 11:19:40 AM
I was part of the sewing Accessories swap and this is one of the things I made for Missing Willow. (I made something similar for sweetyetevil a couple of years ago!)
  I used Sculpey to form the skull over a styrofoam skull.  I then hollowed it out, baked it and painted with acrylics.  The actual pin cushion was glued into the hole afterwards.

And the back, with a skeleton goat - because MW lives on a farm with goats.  Smiley

Alrighty!  I'm ready to show off the greatness I received from Missing Willow!
  First - this magnificent pin cushion straight off my wist!  I didn't even remember that I had put that on there - but as soon as I saw it I knew she had stalked well.  Wink

and a close up of the beautiful details!

Next there is a sewing book made from the most wonderful fabric!  I love this and will get plenty of use out of it on my quest to organization! LOL

That's a cute little needle book next to it - and behold!  The inside reveals plenty of pockets, a pair of scissors, needles, embroidery floss, a yarn cutter (who knew?), a needle threader, a pin cushion and a little recycled sweater needle book!!!  Unbelievable!!!

Obviously we agreed to do some extras, and I was super lucky to receive some of MW's delicious homemade soap!  I wish you could smell it - awesome!

And here's the whole deal along with some treats - and minus the teacup that I have already strategically placed where i can admire it everytime I enter the house!

Thanks a million MW!  You're the best!

37  Wicked Forest Match box in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thisbirdsabsurd on: May 17, 2012 03:13:51 PM
Well, with some trepidation I joined the Wicked Forest Match box swap - so many great crafters that seem to make working in miniature their specialty!  The talented and wacky Suereal was my partner, and one of her themes was "pissed off wood nymph" - so that's what I went with.  The "skeleton" is a tiny box of penny matches, covered in Polymer clay and embellished with moss and acrylic paint.  The inside is a tiny polymer nymph in a bed of moss and twigs...  unfortunately there was some sort of mishap on the journey to Canada, but suereal has reportedly fixed the problem.  Wink
  Here's what I did!

...there's a fungus among us...

...Shh-hhh - you don't wanna piss her off!  Wink

40  Re: The Most Amazing Wicked Vices Altered Tin swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by thisbirdsabsurd on: February 06, 2012 03:51:48 PM
You know how you feel when you open up a swap package and the contents just fit you so perfectly you could cry?  Well - that is just how I felt today - and even though I didn't actually cry, I did stand in the kitchen mumbling and laughing to myself for a long enough time that my dogs came in to make sure I was okay.  Okay - okay - without further ado - her is the spectacular tin I received from my partner luckydog!
First of all - it is quite heavy - I was perplexed when I got a large-ish box at my door!  And check out the little spinny doo dad at the bottom - "More Vice - Less Nice"!

-and there's not just ONE picture - there's a whole BOOKLET of them!

Has anyone guessed that avoiding housework might just be a vice of mine?  Thank you so much luckydog - you made an amazing tin and I'm so lucky to have been it's recipient!  Smiley
