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!

Love the explosion of color from cmarion3 and teag!!

Here's my page for Jan. It's a bit more subdued and winter-inspired:

The quote is a fortune cookie I saved randomly. It says "Emptiness is the mother of all things." I got the fox print from sheepBlue in a recent swap as well as the face clay bead at the top (the lighting is terrible!). I also tried my hand at some bubble wrap stamping for this page.

175  Re: Bead Soup Swap: Round 7 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Abbeeroad on: January 10, 2014 05:41:25 AM
And me second, I guess, too!

I received from the amazing sheepBlue yesterday. She completely spoiled me.

First, some round wooden beads, glass beads, and square beads. I love the colors and patterns on these guys:

Next, some cording, chain, and findings (so handy!):

Then, some chips, and stone beads (great shapes!):

And SEED BEADS!! Awesome, awesome:

Some black beads (so, so useful), and wooden tubes:

Some larger accent beads, and clay beads:

I think a purple bead broke in transit, but I'll still find use for the pieces, it's so pretty. AND...the clay beads are actually faces (did you make these, Emma?!?!) and I LOVE THEM!

Ouch, not the greatest pic, but you get the picture. Did I mention I LOVE THESE?!?!

And last, but NOT least, the crafted items:

I'm wearing the chevron necklace today (love), and the rock is just too, too cool.

AND, she sent me some of her famous screen printed fabric and a screen printed pouch:

Just amazing. Thank you so much sheepBlue!! I hope you love your (smaller, but hopefully awesome) bead soup, too!

Woohoo! Me first!  Grin

I received today from Artmomto5!

She sent me a perfect goodie bag full of beads I can't wait to play with!

First, a bottle filled to bursting with seed beads. I can never get enough of these little beauties!

Next, two bags of colorful beads. I love the patterns on the larger ones, and the smaller ones will come in handy in so many ways.

Then, some awesome wooden bee-hive beads that I totally love, and some stringing thread (requested!):

And, a whole baggie full of circles!

She also sent me TWO crafted items:

Gorgeous stones and I love the ceramic piece!

Great colors, sizes, textures all around. Thank you so much Artmomto5! I love it all!!

178  Red-nosed Kid Tree Ornament in Winter Holidays by Abbeeroad on: January 02, 2014 08:49:01 AM
Every year I make an ornament for the grandparents and great-grandparents featuring their favorite grandkid in some way. This year I combined a couple of ideas I found floating around the Internet to make Red-nosed Kiddos!

I printed out black and white photos of my subject and mod-podged them onto purchased birch rounds. I then carved two stamps for the antlers and hot glued a mini red pom-pom on for the nose!

I did drill a hole in the top and added a red tie after I took the above pic.

Thanks for looking! Happy New Year!

179  Yoga Mat Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Abbeeroad on: November 16, 2013 10:58:53 AM
This has been on my to-do list for years. I finally did it!

I've had a ton of this tan canvas duck cloth (think Carhartt) since my BIL thought he wanted me to make him seat covers for his Jeep that never panned out. It's been used in a myriad of projects since it's purchase, but when I came across this awesome tutorial using upholstery fabric, I knew exactly how I wanted to use up the canvas.

The only problem was the color. I knew I could jazz up the fabric somehow, or even use it as a sturdy lining, but exactly what to do was just not gelling in my head. Until LimeRiot posted her now famous toilet paper printing tutorial, and inspiration struck.

Since this is for a yoga mat, and I'm a little bit peace-loving hippie, I cut off the end of the roll and glued it back in to make a peace sign shape:

I dipped it in some white acrylic paint and prayed it would work:


From there, it was a piece of cake to follow the tute and create the bag! I've had the strap in my stash for years, I think it fits the bag perfectly!

Here are a few more pics, because I'm completely in love with the finished product.

Thanks for looking! Namaste.

Wow, the yellow wallpaper quilt is wonderful.

Also love the prism. Dark Side of the Moon is quite arguably the best album of all time.

And, I received this awesome quilt from donniesgirl over the weekend:

It is a fire power samurai Mario!!! How awesome is that?!?!

She was inspired to incorporate some culture into her quilting, which I absolutely love and sincerely appreciate. Here's a close up of Mario:

And the quilting is actually sashiko embroidery, which is a wonderful touch and so unique. Here's a pic of the back to show off another view of the embroidery technique and to show her perfect binding:

And last but not least, my happy kiddo with his MAQ:

She also sent a Naruto Manga for DJ and I to read together. We've already started it.

Thanks so much, donniesgirl!!! This MAQ is VERY LOVED!!!
