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....

Here's the thank you page I sent to alwaysinmyroom:

I played around with watercolors on muslin and used a paint pen for the dots. I also used some duck cloth as a middle layer to make a sturdier page.

It was super fun to make and I can't wait to play around some more.

stillatthetop - your lipstick idea gave me an idea for how to "finish" my husband's page with tire marks. I'm going to see how it looks this weekend.

Great use of the glitter gel, Renstar! I should play with some of those, too.

Great pages, LovelyMiss! And of course, more awesome stuff from teag. Love the coffee rings in particular.

Here's my facing page with my husband's silhouette:

I still feel like it's missing something. Asked hubby to contribute, but didn't get much...

Here are the two pages together:

I also finished a thank you page for alwaysinmyroom yesterday, but I left it on my desk at home today! D'oh! Work is frying my brain. Things will hopefully ease up after Wednesday.

I'm in love with those prayer flags!!!

And I'm also in love with the fabric journal pages I received from alwaysinmyroom in exchange for some TM patches I sent her last year. Check out the awesomeness:

AMAZING, right??? Thank you so much AIMR!

I love TED talks. There's some powerful stuff in there.

And, I actually made two pages for Feb! I tried to do a self-portrait in the same style as my first dye-project here on Craftster. This is also inspired by faemystique's recent hair portrait and the bird page I made for Smmarrt in the recent Fabric Journal Art Page Swap. The quote on the bottom is from a Tom Petty song (Wildflowers). I think I'm going to do my husband's silhouette on the facing page (like the dyed tapestry in the link) and complete the quote with "You belong somewhere close to me."

ETA: Oh, I forgot. Believe it or not, I did dye this page with coffee, too. I wanted to do rings in the background, but they wouldn't stick, so I ended up dumping the whole piece into the coffee. Why can I stain my clothes with little to no effort, but a random scrap of fabric is so hard?

Awesome page, Smmarrt.

Here's my page for Feb:

It's inspired by finding my own path. The trail marker is from New York and reminds me if where I came from, but I didn't truly find my path until I met the people who are currently in my life. They helped me realize that it was acceptable (more than acceptable) to just be me. The saying "ubuntu" I heard in a TED talk. It's an African saying that means "I am because of you," which I felt fit my situation perfectly.

Hm...loading from my phone is stretching my pics. I'll have to try again from a computer later. Fixed!

So, today I am stuck in a meeting room in Ft. Lauderdale with this taunting view:

So, what would really make today the best day ever is if I got to stick my toes in that ocean for 5 minutes before my flight back to snow-filled NJ!

I received!!!

BigBangMomma sent me not one, but two wonderful affirmations for my work in progress fabric art journal! I LOVE them both.

Here's everything, along with a cute note:

And close ups. "Don't let the muggles get you down!" ADORE! I don't even think I mentioned Harry Potter on my questionnaire, but this is SO perfect! Notice, as BigBangMomma pointed out to me, no one on the page is a "muggle." Wink

And the extra:

"Practice Gratitude" and a mountain scene - perfection!

Thank you so much, BigBangMomma! These will fit right into my journal!
