21  Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery, 2014 in The Swap Gallery by suereal on: September 29, 2014 02:57:24 PM
OKies...so...BirdBones and I have this on going personal swap thing going.  I send her stuff...she sends me stuff...no one is keeping score here.  And I just got this FABO package from her today, so I wanted to share it Grin...hhhmmmm...where to start...where to start...

with EXTRAS!  She lives on Mars...no wait...not that far away, but it seems like it most of the time Grin.  So she sends me all kinds of toys I can't find here...like those Grin  I keep picking up laser fingers at the dollar store and putting them down...so THANKS a ton for those BB Grin

My FAVO is this little poodle charm..

t translates to "Poodle of DEATH!"  HAHAHAHAHA

lets do the candy next..

Yummy Yummy German candy!  just LOOK at the size of that Kinderegg!  On Holidays we can get large kinder eggs, but I think, from something BB said, she can get these SUPER sized Kinder Eggs all of the time.  This one is mine.  She sent another one, wich I gave to my Hub, and it's on his desk....I just forgot to get it for the photo Grin

I'm saving the stuff she made till last...so lets do the cards now Grin

Most of these are from a toy museum...but there is some stuff from an Aquarium too.  The lower right one translates to  Wandering Sausage!...and it's a real sea creature too Grin

now...lets see...let's talk about the badges and pins..

I KNOW!!!!  All of these are made by the amazing BB! The top two on the right are pins, the rest are badges.  The lower four are drawn and then encased in packing tape and then  sewn...she is just so CLEVER Grin

I think this is my FAVO.  I am not sure that most folks get this...I rarely plan things.  I just start to work/play and things happen.  So...yeah....I meant to do it like that Grin

She also sent me a TON of bags....including a water resistant liner for the box it's self!

FOUR bags, a little fabric box and the liner for the shipping box....all I have to say is AMAZING!!!

I saved the most FABO for last..

STUFFIES!!!!!and a FABO MugRug  ERmaGERD!  Any one of these would have delighted me, so just IMAGINE how delirious I am now Grin  The Nomme I have wanted to come and live with me since forever.  Turns out the poor wee thing had a box issue and had to go through some intensive therapy to make the journey.  Makes me love it even more Grin  I also got a stuffie Eyepuff (that's what I'm calling it at least Grin).  And this little Octo from the Aquarium she went to that clearly had to come live with me.  And THENthen, she made me an adorable MugRug too!  I feel like I won some kind of awesomeness award.  You so ROCK JOSE!!!!  And so does craftsters as I wouldn't have BB if it weren't for y'all Grin

WooHOOO!  I'm so delighted!  I have been having a tough time the last month or so due to my hand being "grumpy", but today, I got kwality's package, and it was a great cheer up Grin

um shall I say SSSSSQQQQUUUEEE!!!!?  I have my own Kwality stuffie in a most hugable size.  I keep playing with his top knot Grin.  I'm thinking his name is Rupert...just LOOK at those ittybitty TOES!!!


Two...diskies....I'm going to think of them as painted hooplas Grin...of just so adorable monsters.  No one who is in the know will not know who made these two Grin  Rosco and Walendo Grin

and Then then....

Not only did I get an adorable and practical eternal calendar, I got TWO note books.  Now...I'm not sure if I had seen this before, but the books I got from Kwality are not just little lined books.  I got note books with all kinds of different and interesting papers in them....kind of like journal worthy papers.  I thought I got a photo, but it looks like not...

annnnywaaayyy....All done for me and mine as far as this wonderful swap goes.  I'm COMPLETELY delighted!  I have been coveting these things from these swappers for a few years now.  I just hope they are 1/8th as happy with the stuff I sent them Grin.  Thank you LUCKDRAGON for takeing on the Herculean task of orging this swap Grin

Here's what Ludi sent me to play with....

It took me some time to even decided what was going to be up.  The rubbery material is glow in the dark fabric paint.  It was so much fun to work on this project with Ludi Grin

I got my package from Ludi today!!! And it's AWESOME! She sent wicked cool extras...

And Ludi did any awesome job on my hoop too! I couldn't have asked for a better interpretation. Photos can't do it justice but here's a couple anyway.

I prefer glow-in-the-dark to white, so I sent some along for her to use. Here is an "enhanced" glow pic.

Thanks SO much Ludi. You are one of my favorite swap partners ever!

Heading into Stupnormous territory.  I don't expect stupnormous in return, I just got carried away....  Tongue

YEAH!  I love it when you get carried away Grin.  I've been having to rest my hands and catch up on house cleaning *bleck*, so I won't be starting right away...and oh yeah!  I was just going to take the pic of your 1/2 when I got distracted...BRB Grin

Check out the lovely eyes I get to play with Grin.  This is going to be fun Grin

30  Re: Terrific (Faux) Taxidermy Swap - SU 08/15 - 09/05/14, SO 09/22/14 in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by suereal on: August 18, 2014 12:46:05 PM
Well...I think taxidermy is more then just heads.  One could felt a taxidermy mouse say...or a moose if they were terribly dedicated.  I was thinking about it last night and I think I think that taxidermy has to look a bit more realistic then a stuffed animal is all.  So, if I were to make a unicorn, I would make it to look more like a horse than that So Fluffy unicorn from Despicable Me.  And then there is that whole line of taxidermy where mundane creatures are doing odd things.  Mostly seen with squirrel, mice, and toads.  I've seen some very realistic stuffed animal toys.  I suppose one could destuff a stuffie and then pose it oddly and make it a little outfit and a lawn mower.  There are a few places I've seen large heads done in cardboard, but I think the mounted heads in a real size format would be difficult to ship.  Then there are the mounted fish to think about as well....I think there are lots of options when it comes to taxidermy...I just know I don't want real animal parts involved in mine....probably Grin

This little jackalope I made is on a wooden plaque that is only about 4 inches long..

so things don't have to be giant Grin
