I received my lovely cryptids from our wonderful organizer, Smeddley!  She is one talented lady I tell you!  I received a crocheted Okapi (which she said grew, and grew, and grew!) a crocheted squid, and a crocheted frog as an extra.  I can't believe she said that she wanted to make more, but, didn't because the Okapi kept growing!   Shocked  Like all of this wasn't enough?!   Shocked  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Smeddley!!!!!  I LOVE them!!!

4  There She Is, It's Miss America! Nah, Not Really It's Nessie! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by gotgrey on: November 04, 2014 06:13:50 PM
So, I'm in the Cryptid Swap, and was inspired to make a Nessie.  I was so happy that my partner Smeddley loves Nessie as much as I do.  All that love poured over into the making of this Nessie.  She is made from 2 baby blankets.  I'm doing my annual Christmas giveaway Sat. and hopefully she will find a new home.  Here is the link, if anybody else would like to make one: http://pickledokra.blogspot.com/2013/12/loch-ness-monster-free-pattern.html
I got the link courtesy  Smeddley's pinterest.  She comes together quickly and easily.

5  Honey Bear in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by gotgrey on: October 17, 2014 09:39:45 AM
I forgot how much I loved making these teddy bears!  I randomly remembered this bear the other day.  So, I dug out the pattern last night, cut it out, and stitched it together today.  Only took me a couple of hours.  I think I'll make more to give away at Christmas to like a homeless shelter or something like that.  This one is made from fleece, that has flowers on it.  It has black plastic safety eyes.  I don't think I'll stitch a nose.  I think it looks rather cute w/o one.  You can get the free pattern here: http://www.funkyfriendsfactory.com/
But, you'll have to sign up for her free newsletter.  I don't mind receiving it, because I get notifications of contests, giveaways, and when she has designed a new pattern.  You can sew them together on a machine, or hand stitch them.  They come together pretty quickly.  I think they would be a fun girl scouts project, or some such thing like that.  Enjoy!

I received the cutest and sweetest package from cabaute!  I got some Crunch bars, Babe Ruth bars, and Butterfingers!  They are almost all gone now. I LOVE chocolate!  I also received the cutest bat and pumpkin!  Aren't they just precious!?  And, look at that beautiful little beaded spider!!!  I'm thinking about putting a bale on him, so that I can wear him on Halloween.  And, such a cute card!  I thought about sending a card, but, didn't.  Thank you so much cabaute!!!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything!

7  Open up and say BOO!!! in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: October 15, 2014 09:24:15 AM
I made this wooden boo box for whatthepuck in the, "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap.  I found the box, and the ghost and cat figures at Goodwill.  I think I found the little wooden blocks they are sitting on at a garage sale.  I painted the box, then I used a resistance type goop, and painted it again.  That's how I got the orange and black look.  I decopauged the little wooden blocks w/paper that has little mushrooms on it.  I painted the little ghost and cat figures.  Then I glued them on top of the little wooden blocks, then glued the little wooden blocks to the box.  I don't usually enjoy working w/smalls, but, I had a lot of fun making this box!

8  Zombie Babies in their "playpen" in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: October 15, 2014 09:16:36 AM
I made this for whatthepuck in the, "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap.  I got the baby figurines out of the free box at a garage sale.  I also got their "playpen" out of the free box.  The babies were an ugly all white color.  I instantly saw this project in my mind.  So, I painted the babies to look like zombies, as whatthepuck said she liked zombies, and I painted the fence pen to look old and weathered.  I found the ghost figure a few days later at Goodwill.  Both whatthepuck and I were shocked it managed to survive shipping!  I'm not big on zombies, but, I do have to say these are the cutest little zombies I've ever seen!   Grin

9  Paper Mache and Wooden Blocks Halloween Sculptures in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: October 15, 2014 09:07:31 AM
I made these Halloween sculptures for whatthepuck in the, "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap.  Their bases are wooden toy blocks that I paper mached.  The base of the heads is a styrofoam ball that I also paper mached.  I made a base for the ghoul's body, and paper mached over it too.  Then I painted them.  The ghoul's arms are chenille stems.  I really love doing paper mache.  It's messy and that makes it fun!   Grin

10  From Ugly To Fancy in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: October 15, 2014 08:49:22 AM
I painted this cat on a cushion for whatthepuck in the, "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap.  It was the ugliest white cat, sloppily painted.  Because whatthepuck likes black cats and purple, I painted the cat black, the ribbon around it's neck and the cushion purple, the tassels pink, and the ropes to the tassels gold.  Another thrift store find/treasure.  Now that I've scored a couple of times, I've been on the look out for more ugly finds to turn into beautiful treasures.  Smiley
