1  Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Whistley on: September 03, 2015 07:53:13 AM
Whistley's Gallery of Halloween Treats from Sweetyetevil

I waited to open the box until day one because one of the items wasn't wrapped so it became day 1. Smiley

All together

Day 1

I love all things Disney and this Nightmare Before Christmas/Halloween pillow is perfect! I've been snuggling with it all morning. I love it!

Day 2

A cork Mickey Pumpkin (I'm calling it a pumpkin)! It was wrapped in the Disney Halloween fabric. Fun!

Day 3

A cute Halloween Kitty box filled with cold process vanilla bourbon soap. It smells great and is cute to boot!

Day 4

Coasters! I think they look like spooky tree branches.

Day 5

I'm dying over this one. I mentioned that I love all things Disney. When it comes to Halloween I'm all about the Haunted Mansion. I even have the Hitchhiking Ghosts peeking out of my home's windows for our decorations. This amazing plate says "Gracey Manor Hitchhikers", has my favorite ghosts on it and is my favorite color! I adore it!
It was wrapped in the cute stripey fabric. Smiley

Day 6
(Tilt your head for a better view.)
Wrapped in this nifty little coffin is a playful little ghost swinging on a swing! It's a necklace and it glows in the dark! Love it!

Day 7

It's a poisoned apple. THE poisoned apple. Snow White's poisoned apple! I am so excited!
My new Halloween shelf is filling up with amazing things! And there's still more days to go!

Day 8

A very cool painted ceramic pumpkin! I love it!

Day 9

A sweet BOO wall/door decoration. This is not its final display place, just the first hook I had available. Smiley

Day 10

A Bat-Mickey mug! And paint pens so I can make my own ceramic mugs and plates and things. I'm so excited and with Christmas coming I have plans for these.

Day 11

A cork board covered with Disney Halloween fabric! I have some Halloween Disney pins that are going to be displayed on this. Love it!

Day 12

I love the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and with this bracelet I can show it off! Each link is a picture of one of my favorite Mansion ghosts. So perfect!

Day 13
And on our final day 2 presents. (Tilt your head to the right.)

A Nightmare Before Christmas zipper pouch! I'm a bag nut and I love it!

And a patchwork Halloween bag! Did I mention I'm a bag nut? Love it!

Thank you Sweetyetevil for a wonderful swap. Even though our tastes are different you knocked every item out of the park! Thanks again and Happy Halloween!

2  Outdoor Piano Bench in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by Whistley on: July 26, 2015 08:30:58 PM
I rarely post threads for my individual projects but I'm just super happy with how this turned out.

May I introduce my outdoor piano bench!

Hubby and I have been working off and on in our basement and have accumulated a lot of extra wood pieces - mostly 2x4's and a couple 2x6's. The wood pile was becoming a nuisance so I decided to do something about it. Inspired by a couple of other very colorful benches I've seen around I just had to make this bench with the slats as piano keys. A pile of wood, a box of screws, some sand paper and a bit of exterior paint and ta-da! Anyway, I love how it looks on my porch. Smiley

Thanks for letting me share!

I received my tiny stuffie from hannabear today.

It's Boo from Monsters Inc!

Just kidding, it's a sweet little yeti dressed as Boo!

She is just too cute! I love her!

Thanks hannabear!

I had to wait for the right light so I could post this!

I received this amazing painted mason jar light from Sammylouise40. Here it is lit up:

The painting is of the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion standing in front of a fence and a cool spooky tree. The background is a lovely purple - my favorite color!

And because the light she sent with it changes color...

Thank you Sammylouise40! I love, love, love it!

7  One tiny stuffie swap round ... is it 9? in New Swap Theme Ideas by Whistley on: April 21, 2015 11:14:32 AM

I've been thinking that I think it may be time to revisit the one tiny stuffie swap! It's either been a really long time or I've just missed them.

The idea is that we make our partner one tiny (fits in a 5"x5" square) stuffie. The medium isn't important (sewn, knit, crocheted, felted) as long as it's a stuffie made to our partner's likes.

Anyone interested?

(Also, I don't want to step on toes so if you organized the last round(s) and would like to keep organizing these please let me know.)

I am loving this gallery so far! I received from jellybean89 today. (I'm surprised it got here so fast. I seem to have mailed hers super snail mail. I'm wondering if it's being delivered by an actual snail.) Anyway! On to the goodies!!!

First, some stitch markers, Doctor Who themed, of course. Smiley

Next a beautiful hoopla! It's really quite lovely. See for yourselves.

Finally, (you must tilt your head to the left to see it but I promise it's worth it)

It's baby Groot!!!!! (jellybean89 also sent some grass that goes over the rocks but I wanted y'all to see as much of my amazing little Groot as you can. I am just in awe of little Groot. I love all the details, especially the little twig sticking out of his head. My kids haven't seen the movie but they have seen the dancing Groot clip and they all want him. Noperoo! He's mine! I love, love, love him!

And, if that wasn't amazing enough, she sent some awesome extras:

*a Fezzik card! I may put him in a little frame and add him to my Princess Bride wall in my craft room.
*note pads (one can never, ever have too many of these)
*some yarn ball stitch markers.
*a cute sheep card (baaaaaad hair day) she found at her LYS
*chocolate!!! That's the box that says "erci". The M is covered up by the...
*wonderful purple wool yarn.
*some hand dyed Princess Bride yarn! This colorway is called "As You Wish". I am so excited that this exists!!!

Thank you so much jellybean89! Because of all of the extras you sent there will be a part two to your swap package - not only to ease my swap anxiety but as a thank you for everything!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I received from Kayrun today (it arrived super fast!).
Here it is all wrapped up:

The extras weren't wrapped. Smiley I can't wait to use the Sharpie oil paint markers. And the Swedish fish are all gone. My toddlers may or may not have helped me devour them. Kayrun did some excellent stalking!

E is for Earings from my Etsy wants.

Sorry they are a little blurry. I promise they are not blurry in person. Little Mickeys!!!

M is for Mouse. A TARDIS mouse!

and her little face:

I is for Individual characters from Up (One of my 2 very favorite movies)

And here it is, already at home on my Up wall

L is for a Loop for my neck

I love this stitch! It is super soft and the color is wonderful too!

Y is for Yarny creation... It's a Dalek washcloth!

I'm not sure I can use it. It's way too cool.

Thank you Kayrun!!! I love it all! You are wonderfully talented! Smiley

Oh My Goodness! I just received my awesome item from Lo{ve}!!!

Pixar's Up is one of my very, very favorite movies.
Whether you like the movie or not you must admit that this is pretty awesome:

I did a little happy dance when I saw it! Then promptly went to my new craft room (my Christmas present this year) took a picture then gave it its place on my Up wall! I love my new craft room because I now have hoopla walls!

Here it is on my Up wall:

And a couple close ups:

I love, love, love it!  Thank you Lo{ve}!
