1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / I have a ? about feedback on: January 16, 2015 03:34:22 PM
If you mail a package, w/a DC#, and it gets lost in the mail, do you receive a negative if you do not make another package and send?  Just curious.  ? hit me outta the blue all of a sudden today. 
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / There She Is, It's Miss America! Nah, Not Really It's Nessie! 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. 
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Honey Bear 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!

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Open up and say BOO!!! 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!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Zombie Babies in their "playpen" 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
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Paper Mache and Wooden Blocks Halloween Sculptures 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
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / From Ugly To Fancy 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
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's skelecat!!!! on: October 14, 2014 07:59:28 PM
I'm so goofy!   Grin  I painted this DOD cat for whatthepuck in the, "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap.  It was the ugliest terra cotta looking cat before I painted it.  I had to pull off an ugly dusty ribbon w/an ugly dusty silk flower attached to it.  I lucked out, and the glue came right off w/it.  Lots and lots and lots of layers of black spray paint.  A real labor of love.

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Vintage Halloween Shrine on: October 14, 2014 07:03:40 PM
I made this vintage Halloween shrine for cabaute in the, "Vintage Halloween" swap.  When I found this wooden display box at Goodwill, I knew I was going to make into some kind of a shrine.  I hand drew the cat, the bat, the moon, and the little witch.  I drew them on water color paper because it's stiff.  Then I colored them w/colored pencils.  Except for the moon.  I drew his face w/pencil.  The images came from cabaute's pinterest.  I looked up a vintage image for the moon.  The background is an image my oldest son gave me of outer space.  I made the little broom the witch is holding from a stick and some straw I had.  I used acorns I collected last year.  The back is decopauged w/leaves that I collected from our tree in the front yard, and pressed and dried last year.  I had so much fun making it!  I can't wait to make more!   Grin

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Bats in the Belfry! on: October 14, 2014 06:55:15 PM
Well, maybe not in the belfry.  And, it's only one bat on a wreath.  I made this wreath for cabaute in the, "Vintage Halloween" swap.  She had an image of the bat pinned to her pinterest. I hand drew the bat onto watercolor paper because it's stiff.  I colored it w/ colored pencils, and cut it out.  I wrapped the foam wreath form w/strips of vintage looking Halloween fabric. Then, I glued the bat onto it.  Pretty pleased w/myself as my drawing skills seem to be improving. I forgot how much I love to draw.   Grin
