Howdy Howdy!  I received my angel package from geekgirl1000100 yesterday and finally have a bit of time to post the pics



Firstly, there was this nice pack of garden tools, some neat glass beads, a wee apple for Zoey, a cool coin, some tiny glass bottles, and a cute little plastic container.


Then she sent this cute octopus, which is just the right size for the laboratory Grin.


For my retro theme, she made this adorable tiny TV dinner, also just right for the laboratory.  After all, mad scientists have to eat too Grin.


She had mentioned she liked to make tiny food out of poly clay.  I said I could use some odd foods, so she thought up this adorable tentacle pie.  So funny Grin


And then she made me something I have been needing for a very long time....a BRAIN!!  LOL Grin

Thanks so much for all the charming tiny things GG#.  I appreciate you angeling for me too.

And thanks B1K for hosting this super fun swap Grin

I (finally...) received my last 5 tiny things for the Set the Scene Swap (actually my Angel package is on it's way, so there are still more cute little things coming in real life Grin)!  So let's take a look shall we?


A little lounge chair for Wee me!  It was made from mini pre colored craft sticks.


Then this cute fairy garden inspired table.  (kbrison sent me this neat geode slab in the real Set the Scene swap.  I added the little three prong stick for the legs.  I used epoxy putty to stick it on, and then glazed it with resin.)


I think this is my FAVo thing yet.  A tiny ray gun!


She said she almost didn't send this little guy.  But I'm glad she did.  It's a ittybitty Vampire Squid! (I tried to use Ultra Thick as the water...it didn't dry all the way and it made bubbles.  I finished it with resin.  It took me forever to make the little V.Squid out of FIMO...three tries...or I would make it over again..)


And here is my new Yard Guard Fish.  I had to chain it up as it is a viscous wee fish.  It has bit me twice so far..


Here is wee me with all the loot, including the little cat ears she sent me (actually a very small plastic bat ring).

She also sent something I have already placed on the laboratory..

The Crystal Squid widows walk fencing.  The little squids are for sitting on drink glasses.  I love how they sparkle in the light Grin  I added the tiny glow in the dark bats, just for effect...


And here is the My Little Laboratory Project all finished and in it's spot.  I'm super happy with how it all turned out, and it's fun to make Wee Me slave away in the laboratory Grin

LOVE the wee monster one Grin.  They all looks so well made for such small things Grin

AIMR-- I am HELping!  *like a toddler helps when the grown up is one the phone...* Grin

So I received from my partner in the FAKE Set the Scene swap!  She sure took her time....but I love what she sent so I guess I'll forgiver her Grin  All the things are for my little laboratory project.  MLLP is going to be a place for me to keep and remember little bits of things...I own a surprising amount of sentimental little things...

All right, I'm going to start with my favo thing first Grin

This little cutie was made from my very first watch ring (see example of said item in the pic)  I have many fond memories of this ring...Including one of the Johns from They Might Be Giants commenting on it at a concert/signing..still makes me all giggly Grin


This is The Big Book O Stuff, where I can write down things about MLLP


I used computer paper, then stained it with coffee.  I used the coptic stitch to sew it, so it lies flat for easy of writing.


Then there are a few more specimen jars filled...

COSMOtic Particals, LUNAtic Fringe, and a Star JAR.

This is the wee me's new laboratory table.....easy clean surface Grin


A cute little tile table with an ugly secret...or maybe not too secret Grin


EEWWW!  What is that thing?!?...oh  yeah...It's my depression Grin  I figured an end table was the perfect place to keep such a thing Grin

And then I sent me..or she sent me...someone sent the other one this cute and sturdy book shelf for the specimen jars.  We included a few of the collection that will be displayed eventually.


So that's at least 5 things...and I may need to fake join again.  It's wonderful motivation and all of the me's are having so much fun goofing around with the MLLP Grin

aannndddd, since I'm posting anyway, I'll post the stuff I sent to my other partner, who hasn't posted pics yet



Kind of like the stuff I sent kbrison LOL.  A few differences though...I made a wire whisk for her, and a little gazing ball for her fairy garden, and a little raised tray.  The extras are a bit different too.  The broach is broken, but I thought the frame could be used.  The little oval was a scarf clip, but I thought it would make a nice serving tray.

Anyway...I hope she liked it all Grin

My turn!

I received from kbrison and today got the pics done, so here we go Grin



This is the whole package.  All in all she sent me a bean bag, furry pillow, fuzzy blanket, tiny bottles of death, a tool set, a photo of the Jetson's, a slab of rock (to maybe make a table of use as a window.  It's a nice piece of rock Grin), and some stickers.



She made me two poison bottles, because mad scientists all need at least two bottles of death Grin  And she sent me two empty ones for me to fill with stuff.  One will be glow in the dark radiation for sure Grin



Check out the cool tool set!  Many of the things are hinged and actually move Grin



Here's Zoey enjoying relaxing on the bean bag and fuzzy pillow.  And Tiny Me was able to get out of the lab long enough to show off her new lab coat Grin.  The coat was in the sticker set.  I was surprised to see it was wearable!

I love the bean bag, though I failed to get a good pic of it.  kbrison said she had made it already when I was going on and on in forum about the bean bag chairs in general Grin

Thanks so much for all the tiny goodness Grin

With a newly realized fear of Rainbow Dash in my heart, I decided I had better get moving on my Set the Scene Swap stuff.  I managed to even get one of partners swap boxes into the mail today.  Lo and beholder, I received from one of my partners today!  Go figure!  She hadn't even posted that she had mailed or anything.  Anyway, lets all check it out...



First I unpacked this adorable Puddles painting for my mini laboratory...I love Puddles Grin

Then came....



This adorable paint pot set.  The pots look to be two pony beads glued together.  Is my partner clever or what??  The holding tray seems to be skewers, popS sticks, and tongue depressors.  It may be too big for the laboratory, but Zoey will like it too. 

And then there are these two specimen jars for the laboratory..


Blanca from Animal Crossing
http://animalcrossing.wikia.com/wiki/Blanca
I got her from a gachapon (those coin toy machines from Japan.) a very long time ago...before I ever played Animal Crossing to be honest LOL.  I was just fascinated by the fact she has no face.  Now I love Animal Crossing LOL
AND

a tiny rare cobalt blue Soot Sprite from Spirited Away.  SA is one of my favo movies ever.  I try and watch it once a year at least.

The little specimen jars are made from some clear tubing my Daddy gave me.  The tops and bottoms are glow FIMO

Man!  She just keeps spoiling me!  Check out the crystal ball for my laboratory..


I am assuming from it's little stand, that it can only see happy fortunes *crossing fingers*

This last item kind of blew me away.  My partner reached into my very soul and pulled out the true me..



How did she know??  Not even my Hub knows the bottom 1/2 of me is tiger striped!  Everyone knows about the tentacles and eye at this point..but not the tiger part!!  Here I am with a giant penny so you can see just how real the first pic is!



I just hope that she likes the stuff 1/2 as much as what she sent me Grin

OKies...I finally have a bit of time to post the amazing stuffie Bow and Sparrow sent me.  Anyone who knows me will see immediately how perfect it is for me...

Firstly, it was a little shy...
 

It was a good thing we had sushi for dinner.  I was able to use a shrimp tail to coax it to relax a bit..

 

She made me a VAMPIRE SQUID!!!!  How cool is THAT?!?  They are my FAVO deep sea critter, and one of my top 10 best animals ever list.  And she got lots of the little details in.  She even recreated it's photophores.  The tips of it's tentacles and protective inner spines are glow in the dark.  I failed to get it charged before bed last night, but I'll try and capture a glow moment later tonight.  I LOVE my wee vampy squid Grin.  She chose an excellent material to replicate just how odd it's skin is.  They can appear red to black depending on lighting and mood.   And they are very gelatinous, which makes true colors hard to see.  I love how she did the eyes.  It's a two hole button.  The stitching between holes makes the pupil.   So clever!

You are an awesome craftster Bow and Sparrow and I'm completely delighted with our swap Grin   and Thanks for resurrecting the swap Whistle  Grin  It was a blast and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the awesomeness Grin

9  Re: Setting the Miniature Scene Swap signups 6/5/15 - 6/12/15, sendouts 7/10/15 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by suereal on: June 16, 2015 11:07:50 AM
OKies, finally had some energy to post some hints for my partners...

Here's my doll Zoey, with her stuffies and her favo chair.



And here's her personal post
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372484.msg4382655#msg4382655
Her body is 8 inches tall, and I'm rather sure she is a Barbie of some sort.  With her giant head she is over a foot tall.  She likes 50's and 60's Atomic/Googie style, and the cabin or Gypsy style.

And this is the little shelf I want to turn into a mad scientist apartment. 

The bottom slot is the apartment. It measures 3 1/2 inches tall, 7 1/2 inches wide and 2 3/8 deep.  The top, which would be the laboratory, measures 9 inches tall, 7 1/2 wide and 2 3/8 deep.  I will be closing the back up.  I want it to be slightly creepy, but mostly just odd.

Time for a nap now Grin

Yeah...I'm probably over thinking things...I just think I got the size wrong on the little poutine I made for the Canadian Ninni, so I'm giving myself a hard time.  I'm an ittybitty newbie Grin
