241  Re: One Tiny Stuffie Round 2 Gallery!! in The Swap Gallery by suereal on: February 02, 2011 02:59:14 PM
My OTTStuffie got here from LolaandBean...final ly!  It seems it spent a few days at the boarder, as he came with 2 boarder declaration forms.  The package was not open, so I'm guessing it might have had a wee xray...anyway PICTURES!!

Isn't it cute?  It has 30 eyes.  I haven't been able to figure out if it is a boy or a girl...I'm not sure where to look to check to be honest...And LolaandBean asked to know what I would name it.  I was thinking Oculo or Oculus...the Hub is shooting for Bob the Blob...and he said it was ok if I pointed out I didn't marry him due to his creativity...

The other side, so you can see allllll the eyes.

and the mutant not green declaration tag that came with the package.

Thanks so much LolaandBean.  I do believe you have aced the "Most Eyes" catagory Grin

I got my box from teachart today (doin the happy it's finally through the post dance) and be prepared for amazing pictures of large abundance..

First a cute little sketch on the box...did you do that teachart? Or did the postal people having some fun?  It's cute either way.  Then, this is the extras.  Yummy, Yummy extras *drool*.  My husband is helping me through the Prz. M and Ms at an alarming rate.  The Reece's Pieces will have the same fate in a few days I'm sure.  I'm hordi....saving the sour mushrooms for a special occasion...I love sour stuff...but it doesn't go well with chocolate I think..The bottom part of the photo is the wicked card she sent.  I'm fascinated by the story of the sad little clown and his..."horse"...I am imagining the steed is as big as one of our horses at the mo...

This sweet little magnet..she clearly stalked me Smiley

This is the perfect sized little cord bowl she sent me.  It fits into my hand just right..and it also fits..

..Cosmo's head Grin

And now my hugely fabulous Teesha Morre type needle book!!!

It is huge in both size and fabuloseness.  I had mentioned I lost (I did find it eventually..) my last needle book.  So she made one that would be harder to miss place ROFL.  Love it....AND I have 5 or 6 needles that I need a book this size anyway.  I am planning the transfer over this weekend..and I am thinking I will label parts of the pages maybe to keep things organized....

What a great package teachart!  I loved everything.  Thanks again Grin

Isn't it amazing?  I love peacocks anyway but the tails eyes!!! Such a great idea and perfect for me.  SQUEEEE!  Thanks so much ptarmic wumpus, I LOVE him!

Sorry I could not get a not fuzzy pic at this distance...but I think it makes the eyes even a bit spookier...so yah..it's atmosphere

He doesn't actually stand up.  He is propped up for the shot.  Wanted y'all to see his fab legs.

I'll never forget this swap ptarmic wumpus!  Thanks for organizeing and being my partner Grin

EDIT: After I posted I could see the head didn't show up too well.  SO here is a better pic of that...and one of the eyecock and Cosmo, my dog.

244  Emergency Art Kit in Completed Projects by suereal on: January 24, 2011 05:58:28 PM
I had been happily stuffing things into tins for the last few months...


if your interested.  And I decided to make a tin, or series of tins really, for art supplies, so I could just grab them and go and have stuff to play with out in the real world.

I didn't like the wimpy suitcase style handle so I took it off and found this solid handle.  I like it allot.  This thing weights quite a bit, and the handle makes it feel very sturdy.
Most of the papers are in the lid in a plastic sleave with a magnet to make it stay in the lid.  The papers are the right size for ATC.  IN the middle are 2 small boxes of ephemera. Below that is a silicone cupcake cup for water, all rolled up with a silicone band.  A vile of nice seed beads, dental floss, and a tiny tin with a few chachkies that didn't fit into the other little boxes.  On the right are 2 tins with little kits in them (photos coming up), a Prismacolor pen, and my folding ruler.

I cut my water colour pencils in 1/2 and this is one set. The whole thing has the pencils, a paintbrush, erasure, pencil sharpener, paper rolled up, a normal pencil cut down, a little red magnet, and a fish soy sauce bottle to hold water.  This tin is quite narrower.  Much thinner then an Altoid tin

This kit I'm calling my Paper/Wire cutting kit.  It is meant for me to make embellishments for ATC while on the road.  It has sticker papers on the left.  The orange "cord" is actually paper twisted up.  Then in the middle is a small magnet book that has stickers stuck in between the pages.  Below that is a cutting board (the one I cut it from was really warped) and a homemade exacto knife.  It is made from the stick from some frozen treat that I don't remember..Dove Bars?  anyway, it is fatter on both ends and skinnier in the middle.  I cut it in half and glued the blade in between.Then is my tiny pliers and some old brass paperclips and hair pins to bend into..things...Then in the upper right is a pencil with paper rolled around it, and an eraser.  Below that, a razor blade, needle case, and a bit of plastic with black and red electric tape wrapped around, at least 3 yards each I think.  Below that is a home made mini glue stick.  I made it from a Burt's Bee's lip balm tube.  It does push the glue up...I kinda have to push it back down hehehe.  Then 2 clips to help with gluing and patterns.  This kit lives in my bag, so I have more room I can put something into in the bigger kit...any ideas?

245  Tiny Tool Kit in Completed Projects by suereal on: January 24, 2011 04:01:38 PM
At Christmas I put an Altoid kit for both of my nephews.  There is a post on it here.


Well, since then, I have become slightly ob-com about putting little kits together.  This is the Tiny Tool Kit I put together to carry in  my bag.

The kit lives inside this little cell phone case.  It has a strong magnetic closer and a belt clip.  You can see a bit of orange duct tape on the right side.  That is where I molded and folded the side of the case around the things I wanted to put into it.  This is the only "crafting" I did on this project.

The Altoid is open and you can see some of the tools

The tools out of the case.

All the tools out and opened up.  The little flash light is a dynamo, so you don't have to worry about batteries. It has a nice strong beam and it fits in the tiny Altoid box perfect.  The only "head" repeat I see are the knife blades...but they are both used differently.  The silver thing next to the box knife is tiny eyeglass sized screwdriver set.

Anyway, I hope that was at least a bit interesting Grin

I love that chimera!  The eyes look right to me Grin

I am having a posting day today, so i thought I'd post a few more photos of the OTT2 I made..

The profile shot.  It's a larva of some sort,  I hate to think of what it will be like when it leaves this stage....

You can see his hypnotic eye pretty well in this picture.  But don't look too long...even though it is a photo, I can't guaranty you will not be hypnotized....

247  Re: Mug Rug Swap (SignUp CLOSED, SendOut Feb 21 2011) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by suereal on: January 24, 2011 02:42:47 PM
So the other day I hand stitched a mug rug while I watched TV.  The fabric was all bits that craftylittlemonkey sent me, so the only cutting I did was to cut off the extra bits once the seam was sewn.  I did a little bit of fabric painting once I got the quilting done.  It turned out to be an Ode to Birds.  There is a little white bird in one square peeking through the seam, a strip of peacock feather (I painted the tentacley part just under the peacock feathers), and some with tiny owls on it.  I quilted and painted a bigger owl in that square.  I used the printed tiny owls as part of the eye of the big owl.  It turned out to be 8.5 X 9.5 inches.  I used a small sash from a long gone dress to edge it with.  It was not a bias sash, thus the gathers at the corners.  But I kinda like the look.  It has been washed all ready in this photo.

I have not sewn a quilt compleatly by hand before, even tho I do a lot of hand sewing in general.  It was fun and I'm happy with it Grin

I got a cool card from susanab today for the categories of Things You Love..

BUBBLE GUM!  Does anyone know anyone who doesn't like double bubble?  Remember a million years ago, when those little pink blocks would end up being hard as a rock?  I lost a tooth once in a wad of double bubble heheheh

and now we can all learn something.....

Thanks for the bubbles Walter!  And thanks for the great nostalgic card Susi (sorry couldn't resist Grin)
And that was my last card for this round, both comming and going

The ATC love is rollin in now.  I got 2 envelops with cards in them today.

I got a cute card from rOck with me for favo childhood stuffie.

Love his punked out eye

The 2 cards from goddessgarb.  One is an extra.  The first is from one of my favo movies, 12 Monkies

Crazy pills (I'm sure a few of those are ones I take Grin) and then it has a quote from the movie overlay..."You know what crazy is?  Majority Rules!" hehehe

This one is the extra.

A bunch of guys worshiping the great TV god!  It says.."Jeffrey Goines:  There's the television.  It's all right there - all right there.  Look, Listen, kneel, pray.  Commercials!  We're not productive anymore.  We don't make things anymore.  It's all automated.  What are we "for" then?  We're consumers, Jim.  Yeah.  Okay, okay.  Buy a lot of stuff, if you don't, what are you then, I ask you? What? Mentally *ill*."  So funny/sad Grin

Thanks a bunch y'all!

250  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R9 FOCR R9 (Signups 12/27-1/21 Sendouts 2/1) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by suereal on: January 05, 2011 03:12:09 PM
OK..so here is what I came up with....

I started with this..

3 lids and a felled sweater that I used most of to make a TV tray into a small ironing board.  
I ended up with this...

A mushroom box/pin cushion.  I used sushi grass to decorate the stem of the 'shroom.  I also used a bit of cardboard, a rivet (which was new.  But then the next day I found in the recycling a felt basket that had a rivet holding a ribbon to it...so I COULD have used a recycled rivet if I had waited long enough...), some Sari yarn (reclaimed from old silk Saris) to decorate the 'shroom head, glitter glue and some outdoor Modpoge (it doesn't stay sticky like regular Modpoge does). You can take the top off to put a small spool of thread into the base, so you have a sewing station.  But the more I looked at the wee shroom. the more I thought I wanted to make something to go in the box.  It took me a few days, but I came up with this.....

I carved a wee squirrel to live in the srhoom from a old wooden spool.  Now this particular spool was not destined for the garbage pile (cause I rescued it from that fate long ago) but there are indeed billions of wooden spools in the landfill at the mo, so I figured it worked with in the guide lines just fine.
So the prize will look like this...

Hope who ever wins it likes it as much as I do Grin
