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

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
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

25  Puddles Pity Party Tribute Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by suereal on: May 26, 2015 10:24:54 AM
For those who don't know who I'm talking about, Puddles is a giant singing clown on YouTube..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HtrbMy4mU4  <---Puddles singing Team

My Hub found him in April and I have listened to him nearly everyday since then.  I fake joined the Fandom Swap just to make myself a shirt....

There were about 8 steps to this silly shirt.  I just ruff drew the letters onto the freezer paper, used a chisel tip Sharpie to get the letters strait and such, then cut them out.  The red parts were just hand painted on.  I cut a separate stencil to do his crown.  I had to buy the rickrack...huge rickrack was not in my stash for some reason Grin.  I'm a bit AR when it comes to rickrack being sewn on....I hate it when it gets flappy.   SO I free motioned when I sewed it down and followed both outside edges.  I'm not sure how often I will wear it, but it makes me laugh when I look at it.  I also made a pompom wrist cuff.  Puddles has the habit of playing with his poms when he sings Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

26  Re: Fake Swap Craftalong for Swap Junkies!!! 2015 in Craftalongs by suereal on: May 26, 2015 10:13:54 AM
I did it!  I finally finished my Fandom swap.  My partner probably thinks I forgot about her completely Grin

Let's start out with the large shall we?

I'm a relatively new Puddles fan.  My Hub discovered him in April.  Since then I have listened to him almost every day...at least once.  And his voice rings in my ears even when I don't watch his videos Grin  This silly shirt had something like 8 steps to get it all done.  It's a good thing it was for a swap or I probably would never have finished it Grin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HtrbMy4mU4  <---Puddles singing Team

The small is the Puddles Pompom cuff...

Puddles has the habit of playing with the pompoms that run down the front of his shirt when he is singing.  It can be a bit...disturbing.  I wanted to make a pom something for my partner and eventually decided the wrist was the safest place to put a pom Grin

My medium is in a different fandom.  My partner says she has become obsessed with a new cartoon...Uncle Grandpa.  What a huge pile of steaming oddness that show is Grin.  Her favo character is Giant Realistic Flying Tiger.  So, when I found an old Nat Geo about tigers while cleaning one day, it seemed like fate.  The background is a picture of my home town from a local credit union calendar.  I used 3 different tiger pictures from the mag to make GRFT do what I wanted.  I think it looks like she is takeing a rainbow bath Grin

And here she is on the wall..

28  A Memento of a Memory of a Moment: A Poseable Me in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by suereal on: May 15, 2015 04:42:58 PM
When I first read this challenge, I immediately remembered what it felt like to get a ticket to one of the last three seats at the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis 2013 World Tour in Seattle.  It was about 1AM and I couldn't sleep, so I was just looking at stuff about Mack and Ryan.  One of the sites was the tour dates of the 2013 tour.  I saw that it said tickets were still available in Seattle.  I clicked it and it sent me immediately to Ticketmaster.  I was able to buy my ticket within minutes of learning about the concert.  Not like the old days where you had to trudge down to the building to buy tickets.  I wanted to make an entry that expressed how I felt when I got my ticket so quickly and and knew I was going to that concert.  And here it is Grin

I chose the body paper from a roll of wrapping paper I bought at Archie McPhee's in Seattle.  I went there that day too.  The ball shapes reminded me of the Dale Chihuly museum that I visited that day as well.  It also reminded me of all the lights at the show.  The tiger legs reminded me of Macklemore.  They have a tiger on the tour poster too.  I used doll hands and feet.  I repainted the doll feet to look like my FAVO dancing Mary Janes.


I used the QR code for the Canadian Ticketmaster site for a bit of a string pull.

I found a picture in a magazine of a little girl who's head was the size I was looking for...then noticed she looked a bit like me when I was wee.  I thought that was cool as I felt like a little kid from the time I got the ticket till well after the concert.  I made my hair from wool flat cord and springs.  My second set of teeth (the ones not on the girls face) are glow in the dark duct tape.  I needed two sets of teeth since I couldn't stop smiling for 3 months Grin

I did have some craft fails happen.  I was trying to make a dancing doll, where you pull the QR code and the arms wave up and down.  The foam core I used did not like this idea.  I then tried some metal springs to get some movement into things...but they stretched......I even cut a straw to act as a spring...but well...another fail...So I just moved on to the poseable doll Grin

I finished it off by gluing a few glow resin bits I had made before onto a large plastic upholstery pin to make a little star with wings.  A cute symbol to remind me of a wonderful experience.

Thanks for looking, and HUGE Thanks to Ticketmaster Grin

29  Stove Spacer Tile ...thingy.. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by suereal on: April 27, 2015 01:58:26 PM
Stove Spacer Tile ...thingy..

So...our house is a result of "lets wing it" philosophy due to the last owners.  So many things are not square and sort of not all the way thought through.  One of the things that was bugging me was this kind of large space between the gas stove and the counter.  So the Hub made a wood insert and I went wiled with the tiles Grin

All the tiles were either bought a long time ago or given to me.  I used aluminum tape to enclose the edges as I also used the pour on resin to over glaze them all for durability and cleaning easy.  I'm pretty happy with the results, though it took MONTHS to get it all done due to the curing issues Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

30  A wand for my nephew in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by suereal on: April 27, 2015 01:41:38 PM
My nephew is grading from Uni this month...which is odd as he is 8 as I tend to think of him Grin.  Now his brain works more like mine then any other folks in my family tree.  So what to make, what to make.  I finally did decided on a magic wand.  If anyone needs a magic wand it's when one transitions from college folk to grown up.  So I collected a few sycamore sticks from a park my sister and I learned to water ski at when I was at my folks house last and worked from there..

Here it is in the box I made for it to live in.

The box was designed to also be a display stand.

The white parts are glow in the dark FIMO, but I'm a bit worried the glaze, which is UV protective will block the glow  Shocked

After I was done with it all, I noticed that adding the eye at this joint kind of made it look like a one armed cephalopod Grin

And here is the back half of the wand.  I did drill out the handle a bit and added a Garfield newsprint cartoon as the core.  He was always a huge new comic fan as a kid Grin

And clearly the end of wands are perfect for more eyes...

I had to make the box, as the wand was very long...so that's when I got the idea to do the display stand as well.

Got the box made, and it would not stay closed.  Thus the ribbon and eye closure Grin

He seemed happy with it, so that is all that matters to me Grin  But I did feel a bit sheepish about giving my youngest nephew a stick for grad Grin

Thanks for looking Grin
