31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / More Tiny Birds 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
32  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Dia De Los Muertos Pin Cushion!! 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
33  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Wicked Forest Match box 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
34  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Chocolatey Goodness??? on: January 24, 2012 12:06:48 PM
My partner received this yesterday - so safe to post.  Smiley  This was for the "Wicked Vices Altered Tin" swap - and, one her vices being "overindulging in sweets", I sort of accidentally came up with this.  It's all polymer clay on the outside, stuffed with delicious fleece filling.  Wink  Bon apetit!

35  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.

36  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
37  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
38  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!
39  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
40  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
