21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Tired Old Elf on: December 02, 2011 05:23:50 PM
I made this for nooo in the vintage Christmas tin swap.  I got a few tips from knickertwist, and used an antique photo that I found in a local shop - I love this guy and wonder what the story was behind this photo.

22  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Watchful Eye Potion Box on: October 13, 2011 10:52:05 AM
This was the last of the Mini 13 days of Halloween swap.  I started off just thinking I'd do some potion bottles, but it soon grew out of control.  I was sad to have to send it off - but thrilled to know it went to someone who would appreciate it.  So...here ya go!

The little skull bottle was handmade - the others are all antique bottles that I labeled...

Any of you NMBC fans might recognize a few familiar potions...Wink
23  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Skull Mask on: October 08, 2011 10:55:39 AM
This is a mask I painted for the mini 13 days of Halloween swap.  It was inspired by a black and white and lavender mask that I found online.  But before I got to the color part I stopped - decided I liked in black and white.  The INSIDE of the mask is where the color is.  Wink  (RED)

(thanks Sederick - for getting a better shot of it than I did.)  Wink
24  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Vlad the Impaler on: October 02, 2011 10:53:39 PM
-or Dracula as he is better known.  Wink  I made this little ornament for my partner in the Mini 13 days of Halloween swap. It's made from several odds and ends I got off of the dreaded "Alpha Stamps" website that rackycoo let me in on.  (Dreaded because I could spend a months pay in that place if I'm not careful!)  Wink
  Anyway- here he is!
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Tiny space, tiny garden on: August 11, 2011 07:43:50 AM
well I see now that I am totally out of the loop - maybe it would help if I read the directions once in a while.  I wondered where all the awesome gardeners were - THEY ARE HERE!!!!  I'm reposting this...in the right place!  Wink

Okay - I am so not worthy for this challenge, but I'm pretty excited with how well my tomatoes and peppers have been growing so...I'll share my humble pictures.  Wink

This is Ninja the mighty tomato guardian

These are my brandywine tomatoes that are just flowers right now

And another shot of my mystery tomatoes....

Can't wait to see more pics from the other great gardens!

Here's what I've got going on since my original post - the new guys in town:
I don't know if I mentioned this but I got two packets of organic tomato seeds from two different people.  One packet I know had brandywine, some cherokee purple, yellow pear and yellow cherry.  The other packet was a complete surprise. 
So here are the first ones (?)

And I'm pretty sure these are the brandywine (I only know by the leaf description.)

And then we have this plant that is still unidentified.  Very delicate and lacey - no tomatoes yet, but does anyone here have a clue?

PS - I'm convinced that all the people with the truly magnificent gardens are so busy weeding and watering that they haven't had a chance to take photos for this post!!  Wink
(They're not too busy - they just read the directions and posted in the right place...not like me.  )  Wink
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Twenty-five Itty Bitty Birdy Inchies (added framed pics!!) :) on: April 14, 2011 02:47:12 PM
I'm adding to this post - the final framed piece.  Thanks to everyone for your great comments!!

I did these for my mom for Easter - I'm going to put them in a little square frame. I hadn't tried my hand at this kind of tinyness until a recent swap and found out it's kinda fun!!...all I can say is Thank God for reading glasses!  Wink

...anda few close ups!  Wink

27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Lucky Seven on: April 02, 2011 05:33:01 PM
I know there have been a bunch of these posted - and I made lots of these at Christmas - mostly in sets of threes, but this time I thought I'd just keep on going til it got a little to tricky to manipulate on the machine.  Wink  So here you have it - seven cloth baskets (that I just can't seem to stop making!)  Wink  OH!  And the little felted owl is one that my daughter made me for Valentine's Day.  Smiley

And this one is a bit blurry - but gives you an idea of the colors!  Smiley

Thanks for checking this out!!

So, I am a participant in the Wicked Circus Altered Altoid Tin swap- if you haven't checked out the gallery you should - there's all sorts of awesomeness in there!  This was my first tin and I'm pretty sure there will be more to come.  So here ya go - the tin I sent to my partner.....

and here's what was inside....

loads of good fortune.  Wink

Lots of fun! Thanks for taking a look!  Smiley
29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Queen of Knick-Knackery on: March 05, 2011 09:19:20 PM
 -AKA cackle.  Wink  At least that is a nick name her husband has given her, so when we were partnered up for the Very Important SOB swap, I just couldn't resist.  She's the same basic pattern as my Mother Earth doll, but covered in "Knick KNacks" and with a different face, (embroidered) and hair do.  So....here she is!

I made this for the IYP swap. My partner received her so I'll post a few pics.  She's my own pattern...and so are the critters.  Wink I think she's not quite 2 feet tall give or take.

and of course....her little shoes.  Wink
