22  Garden Doodles in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by LimeRiot on: January 17, 2015 01:48:55 PM
In addition to being a fabulous crafter, alwaysinmyroom is also a magical gardener! Her beautiful garden was the inspiration for this box of doodley knick knacks that I recently sent her.

I repurposed one of my birchboxes and painted these flowers (inspired by a drawing I saw on Pinterest) to cover the top.

Inside, there are ATCs and other little artsy things.

I included a couple of pieces that contain wildflower seeds.

And a little cube with garden veggies painted on each side.

I painted these on small scraps of leather.

I made a teeny book from an old post card and put garden themed quotes inside.

Lastly, the Go Sit on a Cactus kit that I posted earlier Smiley.

There is still quite a lot of room left in the box so I might have to send some more garden doodles her way!

I've been up in my craft room working on ATCs all morning so I signed up and "sent" for the first time in my swap history Smiley.

I wanted to work on some incorporating text so I can continue learning and practicing hand lettering skills.

I made a set of universe themed cards. I did these on watercolor paper but I learned that cold pressed watercolor paper isn't great for hand lettering. It's too bumpy!

I also made a little card to remind myself to practice hand lettering every day and not to get discouraged.

24  Go Sit on a Cactus Kit in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by LimeRiot on: January 13, 2015 10:12:58 AM
I made this snarky little "go sit on a cactus" kit for alwaysinmyroom Smiley. She is now prepared to prank any unsuspecting evil doers with a prick (er, papercut) to the hiney!

It's a matchbox covered in craft paper and then doodled on with black pen and wee bits of craft paint. The drawer is covered in origami paper that reminded me of succulents.

Inside the kit is a whole assortment of cacti that I drew with micron pens and then painted in with water colors.

Here's a shot of a cacti trap in action!!

This is a silly project but I have a real goal to improve my drawing skills and learn hand lettering in 2015 so this was a fun place to start.

Now watch your hiney!! You never know when you might fall prey to a cactus trap Smiley.

25  Re: Journal Cover Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LimeRiot on: December 27, 2014 11:53:28 AM
This is the type I had in mind...

They are 9 3/4" x 7 1/2" but we don't necessarily have to use those. Partners could decide on size, if they want.

26  Journal Cover Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LimeRiot on: December 27, 2014 07:55:16 AM

I think being a crafter and a list-maker go hand-in-hand Cheesy. I can never have too many journals!!

Would there be any interest in doing a journal cover swap sometime in the new year? We could send a reusable cover and standard composition notebook (the ones you get at the drug store for $0.50). The cover could be sewn or embroidered or quilted or stenciled or...whatever!

This swap would be just for the cover and notebook (no extras).

kwality's monsters are so adorable. They are all such characters - bright and blissful!!

cackle is the master of bottle brush trees!! I sent my partner some trees inspired by hers Smiley.

Bunting!! So cute and happy, wendiek!! What a sweet package you sent. Love that reindeer ornament too.

And now I get to share the wonderful package I received from PerfectlyBohemian!!

I've been in desperate need of a thread catcher for years and now I finally have one!! I love the birch fabric and theme of this! I'm going to get so much use out of it.

This is the first version PB made and she thought she messed it up. I'm so glad she sent it anyway because I adore it and can't find a single thing wrong with it!! I'll be able to use it as a fabric storage basket. And would you believe, she carved that deer stamp?!?! So amazing!

Look at these stamps!! So detailed and perfect! I plan to print some fabric with these and some wrapping paper for xmas.

And what swap package would be complete without a wiener dog?!!! Look at this cute little guy!

Here he is with some new friends Smiley.

Thank you for everything, PerfectlyBohemian!! I had so much fun swapping with you and getting to know you better.

28  Our Spiraling Home Project - From Deck to Addition in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: December 18, 2014 07:12:43 PM
A little over a year ago, the hubby and I started a project to put a covered deck onto the back of our home. Like so many projects, it spiraled a bit out of control. What started as a deck turned into a full blown home addition. The process was stressful and exhausting at times but as we've FINALLY been able to enjoy the space, we know it was all worth it! We love our new deck Smiley.

Other than the decision making, I can't take any credit for this work. We had a great contractor that did all of the hard parts. If we had attempted to participate in any of the construction work, this project wouldn't have made it past the whole-in-the-ground phase Smiley.

Deciding the paint colors (particularly what to do with my favorite part of the room, the ceiling) was so hard!! We actually ended up painting it a different color to begin with and redoing the whole thing Smiley.

And here are some of the before and in-progress pictures! Gosh, I almost forgot what a mess this was!! Cheesy

29  This Year's Elf Workshop in Winter Holidays by LimeRiot on: December 14, 2014 04:04:06 PM
Every December I host a holiday craft party with my girlfriends. We eat and drink and craft and laugh all day long and into the wee hours of the morning Smiley. It's a lot of work but we have so much fun!

This year we did 5 different crafts - most of which we'll give out as gifts to family and coworkers. Each person takes home ~5 of each project!

We made microwaveable rice warmers. Before the party, I sewed 5"x5" charm squares together. At the party, we turned them inside out, pushed out the corners, filled them rice and then zipped the open seam with the sewing machine.

I altered printable labels (that I can't seem to find a link to now Sad) and we cut them out during the party and attached them to the finished warmers with ribbon. 

We also did a sticky simple syrup project Smiley. We made cinnamon and orange infused syrups. I printed labels from this link before-hand and we cut them at the party and attached them to the bottles with black and white ribbon.

I just love bottle brush trees and saw a cute decoration/ornament idea on Alpha Stamps that I knew would be fun to do at the party! I had all the supplies on hand and we made a big mess cutting and glueing and glittering our own versions Smiley.

We assembled tub teas using the recipe I found, here. They smell so good and I actually used one in my bath this morning Smiley. I had all the ingredients and we mixed them together, filled the tea bags and cut out the labels. They were so easy that we were able to make a TON of them.

I forgot to get pictures of the last project we did Sad! I made a couple batches of peppermint bark the day before and we cut them and wrapped them up in parchment bags with cute labels.

I made a big batch of soup and a salad that we snacked on all day. Everyone brought really tasty appetizers and drinks that kept us full (and a little buzzed) from 1pm to 1am!! Cheesy

I'm only now finishing the last of the dishes but I can hardly wait to do it all again next year!

30  Entrechat - Seamless Baby Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: November 18, 2014 06:07:44 PM
Our neighbor is having a baby girl this winter which gave me the perfect excuse to knit an itty bitty sweater!

This is a simple (and seamless!!) pattern called Entrechat. I used Malabrigo worsted in the Polar Morn colorway. I stitched the newborn size because the tinier the better Smiley!!

I'm excited to see the little one in it in a just a few more months!!
