51  Sunshiney Hoop for the Box o' Sunshine in Needlework: Completed Projects by ChameleonHound on: March 04, 2014 02:27:35 PM
Hi all!
Here is one part of a box of yellow goodies I sent to my lovely partner craftADDchick in the Box of Sunshine Swap. She had some sunflowers and bees in her pinterest, and I had some pom-pom trim that I really wanted to use...

This is a 6" hoop. I used fusible interfacing to initially hold the flower petals and center onto the blue fabric. The petals were sewn down with a stem stitch, the center with a ring of french knots, and the bee was done with a combination of back-stitch, satin stitch and something that I don't know the name of, but looks a lot like fur when you trim the loops.

Thanks for looking! I hope it brightened your day!

Check out this fantastic box o' sunshine I got from craftADDchick!!!

Here's all the crafty goodness together:

I got so totally spoiled! She sent me a beeAUtiful scarf, a fabric zipper pouch, an adorable crocheted octopus, a washer necklace, and a plethora of wonderful paper crafts, as well as some extra goodies!

The defrosty ice kit is hysterical. I can't wait to traumatize my younger cousins.

Here's all the paper crafts together - some lovely yellow inchies, and ATCs based on some of my past swap themes (unloved critters and local legends). And the cool washer necklace, and the paper doll which I LOVE. She says he's more curvaceous than he was supposed to be, but I love the victorian-esque mythological quality.
And this may be the only time I ever say this, but the tapeworm has the cutest face.

This fabric pouch is really adorable, with the most fantastic yellow fabric inside. My partner says she had a tough time with the bird, but I think he's wonderful! (There's another on the other side.)

I LOVE this scarf! craftADDchick claims it was her first woven scarf, but I find that really hard to believe! And the materials she used gave it a bit of tiger-stripeyness, which I think makes it even more beautiful. And it's super warm, which is what I'd like to be right about now.

And the octopus, I love him to pieces. Even if he doesn't like to share.

Thank you craftADDchick!!!!

That monster is adorable!!!

My surprise recipient has been unresponsive, so BigBangMomma said I could post my tiny thing. I decided to decorate a little treasure chest!

I used book pages and other paper to cover the outside, plus some doodling and a quote from Frank J. Giblin. The fastener was made with two thumb tacks and a bit of string (and I'm rather proud that it works!). The inside was covered with a nice flowery picture from last year's calendar.

I love the knitting, and the sparkly fish, and the ones Bradley made that have twigs and leaves. So cool!

Here are the last two wonderful sets I received:

First, from NH822

My favorites are the dictionary page one, and the seahorse!

And from JessKelly

The foil is a really cool technique! Very pretty!
And a nice card too:

Thanks for all of my wonderful inchies!

I got completely spoiled by BigBangMomma! She was my partner for two swaps, so I got a whole bundle of cool in one package. (And if you want to see what else I got, head over to the One Tiny Surprise Thing swap gallery!)

First, she sent me this awesome puzzle made out of perler beads for my spring theme.

By the way, I am so glad you included a photo because it took me and a friend a long time to put it back in order after we took it out!
She also sent all of these lovely inchies too!

4 ocean themes, one perler palm tree, a flower, and the rest are recycling! I love these two the best, I think:

And the colorful stationery. BigBangMomma, how did you do that butterfly? I can't figure it out!

That elephant is super cute! I am also guilty of stealing boxes, for sure.  Grin

Check out this awesome tiny creation that our wonderful organizer sent me!

And the top so you can see the sparkles. (oooooooh!)

It's called "Even the penguin warms up by the fire." I love it!
Thanks BigBangMomma!

I got this awesome ATC from My_RubySlippers. I can't help but ooh and ahh over all of her stippled artwork! This is Smaug from The Hobbit!  Grin

59  Picture Frame turned Earring Holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ChameleonHound on: January 27, 2014 07:00:12 PM
Hi there!

Inspired by posts on here and on Pinterest, I decided to make an earring holder for my sister-in-law.

I used a picture frame I found at the thrift store, and lace that I bought at JoAnn's. I first cut the lace to size and put fabric stiffener on it. I then hot-glued and folded the lace into place, and then bent a wire coat hanger into a good shape to support it.

Ta Da!
