Here are my prints I received from goatgoddess!! First, a beautiful sun dye with leaves:

And this green one done with a gelli plate:

I love them both, but the gelli plate one is my favorite. I don't know anything about a gelli plate, but I had assumed it was for paper. Now that I see the amazing results with fabric, I'll have to look into this technique!

Thanks so much, goatgoddess!!!

I received from both my partners while I was away! It was wonderful to come home to this awesomeness!

First, from CraftyMamaBee:

She sent a wonderful typed note and three patches. Close ups:



And trees:

They are wonderfully done and perfectly me. Love um!

And next from the very generous Sharalee:

A flower patch that reminds me of Maui (perfect as I JUST got home!), and I just LOVE this skiing patch:

And a space-inspired patch with lots of texture:

AND, she sent me a ton of doo-dads in my patch kit:

Close up of the fabrics:

A close up of the charms, buttons, and misc.:

Thank you so much, Sharalee, I love everything.

You rock, ladies! Thanks so much to both of you. And thanks for understanding my delay in getting this post up!  Smiley

14  Pocket Alter in Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: April 24, 2014 07:20:15 AM
This is my first altered Altoids Tin! It was trickier than I anticipated as I wasn't expecting the embossed lid. I guess I'm a little late to the party.  Wink

Anyway, I had a lot of fun putting this together for hawkeyes_girl in a recent personal swap.

Here it is all closed up:

And open, full of goodies:

All the contents:

There's a candle and candle holder, a wand, bowl and offering plate, extra candles, a gazing stone, wooden cauldron, infused oil, and an alter cloth.

I made the candles by melting down an old candle and dipping hemp into the melted wax:

Here's a close up of the wand, which I made with a toothpick, some black hemp, and beads:

It was super fun to put together. Thanks for looking!

Thanks lindy.  Grin

I made chana masala last night based on this pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/69102175502135785/

Here's mine:

I have to say, this is the best chana masala I've made, and I've tried several different recipes. I did add a little bit of yogurt on top, and this is one of those "better the next day" dishes, so I'm excited to see how the flavors blended at lunch today.

Binoculars?!?! So clever.

Old John is so full of character.

Love the cityscape on the hammer!!

Aaaaaaaand....I received as well from the totally awesome pennydreadfull!!

I guess I mentioned mountains on my questionnaire a lot, lol, which she cleverly picked up on.  Wink

I just love it. The mountains are padded, so there is an awesomely soft texture to the hoop:

And the back is so neat:

Thank you so much, pennydreadfull! I love it!  Grin

Love the bags, lindy! The colors on the last one are rad!

I recently made these items for the wonderful hawkeyes_girl, who I skyped with last night while we opened each other's packages! She's always such an awesome source of inspiration for me. I love our swaps.

First, a prayer flag inspired by this pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/69102175506718448/

It's on my private board, so click here if the above doesn't work.

And here's my version:

I didn't have leather on hand so I used some vinyl I had lying around and backed it with fleece. I played around with watercolor on fabric to make the feather a la Alisa Burke, who I just cannot get enough of.

I also sent this necklace:

It's filled with lavender infused oil. I put a sea shell inside to represent the calmness of sitting on the beach (I was going with a de-stress theme, can you tell?).

Here's the inspiration pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/69102175506718480/ and link if the pin doesn't work.

Awesome stuff!!

I made a bag for my MIL's birthday yesterday based on this pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/69102175506966712/

Here's mine:

I added a pocket inside:

Great tute. I did leave out the interfacing as I used a sturdy canvasy material. I'd definitely use this tute again!

Awesome crazyda79!! I totally have your dino corn cob holders pinned!  Grin

I tried out the "carving a rock with a dremel" pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/69102175503637589/



It took a lot longer than I thought it would, and it was really hard to see my design once I started carving. Drilling the hole in the snowflake took FOR-EV-ER, which is why I haven't done the heart yet. I strung the snowflake on a stand of multicolored seed beads, but I'm not sure I like it - might play around with it still.

If you wanted to keep the thread aspect in addition to the theme, I think I saw in the link that a pattern was sent out, too.

I did the below just with Microsoft tools as an example of how using a pattern might work:

Maybe separate participants into groups, each group gets a different pattern piece and the theme(s) of who they are sending to?

But, my head is spinning thinking of trying to keep track of who would get which pattern, and send to who, and how to keep track of it all....
