21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Altered Tins Dubbed as Owl Shrines on: June 28, 2014 02:11:39 PM
So, I made these for PJR107 in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures swap.  I used Altoid tins, branches from my back yard, and bark from my 3 River Birch trees.  The owls are images I cut out from an old children's encyclopedia that was going to be tossed in the trash.  Also acorns that I gathered from around my neighborhood, when I took my dogs on walks.  They have been dubbed, "owl shrines", so that's what I'm going with.  Enjoy!

22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / In a Desperate Search for Alan Dart Sewing Patterns... on: June 16, 2014 12:09:26 PM
Does anybody have this pattern: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181426697688?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I used to have it, but, I can't find it now.  I've looked all over my studio/craft room for it.  It's the only pattern that has come up missing.  It's just so frustrating!  I don't want to pay the ridiculous prices people are asking for this pattern.  It's a pullout from a magazine.  I would be willing to trade several artists patterns for it.  I would be over the moon grateful if somebody could find it in their heart to trade w/me.  Thank you for taking the time to read this, and your consideration. 
23  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A boy and his dog, and my husband's pomeranian on: June 15, 2014 02:24:31 PM
So, my 17th wedding anniversary was over a month ago.  I didn't have any money to get my husband anything, and neither did I really want to make anything for him either.  I felt kind of bad about it.  He got me some tomato plants and some squash plants.  He knows how much I love to garden.  Then, today being Father's Day, again I didn't really want to make him anything, or buy him anything.  But, my husband got me flowers for Mother's Day, because he knows how much I love flowers.  Makes me sound like a real b*tch w/a capitol B doesn't it?  It's a long story I won't go into.  So, feeling bad about not giving him anything either time, inspiration hit me, and I was in the mood to paint.  I already had 3 of these smaller canvas'.  So, I sat down and painted.   The 1st one is, "A boy and his dog."  It's an angel boy holding his dog.  I painted it using acrylics.  It's an eskimo boy.  My husband went on a cruise to Alaska w/his grandpa before I met him.  I gave him this one for our wedding anniversary.  The second one is a pet portrait of his pomeranian, also done in acrylics.  I gave him this one for Father's Day.  He got them both today.  He wasn't real thrilled w/the 1st one, but, loved the 2nd one of his pomeranian.  Sometimes I don't even know why I try.  He had been gripping at me, saying I don't make anything for him anymore.  Well, this just might be the reason.  Anyhow, I hope you all like them.  Enjoy. 

24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My version of travel/neck pillows for children... on: March 11, 2014 07:48:08 PM
So, this is my version from this pattern: (http://hiraganamama.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/travel-pillows-for-children/)    I used the smaller pattern, and enlarged it in my tracer machine. I LOVE foxes!  I LOVE how this one turned out!  I used a fleece Tootsie Roll blanket.  I plan on making many different animals.   I have a whole list.  I also made a butterfly, but, I haven't stuffed it yet.  I'll post a pic of it here, when I do stuff it.  I'll also post pics of the other animals I make here.  I'm having so much fun making these!  
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Does anybody know the cheapest way to ship to Canada? on: March 08, 2014 03:01:02 PM
I would like Canadian partners more often, but, the cost of shipping usually prohibits me.  Does anybody know the cheapest way to ship to Canada?  Thank you in advance.
26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Chocolate Easter Bunny.... on: March 03, 2014 12:56:17 PM
So, I'm totally in love/obsessed w/Rodney the Reindeer and his family from the 80's, made by Hallmark, and a Burger King kid's meal toy.  So much so, that I've been trying to collect the entire line.  I'm also totally in love with/obsessed w/reindeer.  I have a large stuffed Annalee greeter reindeer that hangs out in my front entryway all year round.  My husband likes to sigh, deeply, because he stays there all year round.  But, he makes me smile whenever I walk in my front door.  Out of the corner of my eye, I've caught a crooked smile on my husband's face, when he sees me smiling at the reindeer.  I was skipping along through Pinterest, when I found a free pattern for making Rodney Reindeer look alike stuffed animals. I squealed w/delight and pinned it.  I was looking at the pattern yesterday.  While I could make stuffed reindeer all year round, I was in an Easter bunny kind of mood.  And, voila!  I made rabbit ears instead, and a little round tail.  What came to life from the reindeer pattern was a chocolate Easter bunny.  I love his quirky little face so much!  He didn't come out exactly like the picture, so, I tweaked my pattern a little.  Trimming off some of the hind end, and adding a little length to the underbody.  Regardless, I still think the bunny turned out fabulous!   Grin  I hope you all enjoy him as much as I do.  He is looking for a new  home.  He is made from very soft fleece. 

27  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 2 Pet Portraits A Greyhound and 2 Italian Greyhounds on: February 26, 2014 11:58:10 AM
I drew these two pet portraits for Sharalee, in the Huge, Giant, Enormous swap.  One is her late, beloved greyhound, and the other 2 are of her beloved Italian greyhounds.  I sketched them out w/a pencil 1st, then colored them in w/oil pastels.  Then, blended in the oil pastels. 

28  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock Bunnies!!! AKA Party Favors for My Niece's 1st Birthday Party... on: February 22, 2014 06:22:19 PM
I made these sock bunnies as party favors for my niece's 1st birthday party.  My little sister asked me to make some rabbit party favors for my niece's 1st birthday.  It's a spring theme, not so much an Easter theme, even though my niece's birthday is close to Easter.  I racked my brains for a rabbit toy that I liked.  I ran across the sock bunnies the other day, and said, "Aha!  That's it!  I'll make my niece and her friends some sock bunnies!  Perfect, just perfect!"  They were quick and easy to make.  No small pieces for a baby to choke on.  Their eyes are french knots.  I looked up a how to tutorial on YouTube.  I already had the socks.  I bought them on clearance after Easter like a year or so ago.  Just found out I need to make 2 more.  Good thing I have another pair of new Easteresque socks.  Grin  Enjoy!
29  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's a rainbow trout! on: December 26, 2013 09:40:29 AM
I made this watercolor painting for quaggy in the mini 12 days of Christmas swap.  She said she had a trailer at the lake, and that inspired me to get back into watercolors, and paint this picture for her.  I was also inspired by somebody else's painting, and made this one my own. 
30  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Halloween Watercolor on: October 01, 2013 06:19:19 PM
I painted this picture for my partner in the Vintage Halloween swap.  She said she liked cats, and pumpkins.  I found a similar painting, and made my own less detailed watercolor painting based off of it.  I'm pretty happy w/how it turned out, since it's been a long, long time since I painted w/watercolors.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I hope my partner did too.
