11  Re: Purse Craftalong? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by EllaRain on: February 12, 2013 07:34:45 PM
I would be up for this, if there is still interest.
I have been thinking I might like to make this bag: http://sdmikke.blogspot.com/2009/03/pleated-purse-pattern.html.  I used the pattern once for a swap:

  and now I think I would like to make one for myself (in non-skull fabric  Wink).

Nothing says love like making three posts in a row  Wink.
But I had to post one more time because I made another dress. I saw some cute fabric on sale and I just could not help myself. Plus since I already had the pattern cut it was super quick.
Here it is:

Thanks again violentjayne!!!

Prepare to see the beautiful package SilentBlair sent me.

First the most adorable combination pincushion thread-catcher. I needed one of these so bad so I was supper psyched when I saw it. The pincushion sticks to my sewing table really well and don't you just love the fabric? Soooo cute!! Cheesy

In my questionnaire I said that I would love either a pincushion/thread catcher or some sort of fun pin cushion.  But Silentblair, being the awesome crafter that she is, made me both! Grin  Grin Grin
It is Brain!!!!!!! (from pinky and the Brain)

 Here he is next the matching card I also received.  
I cannot say enough about this pin cushion. The crochet is perfect. The embroidery on the face is flawless. Plus the whole concept is so me.
There is nothing like a pin cushion that reminds you to take over the world . . . muhaaahaaahaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally, an extra bonus. A super fun tree scrabble tile pendant!

Thank-you tons SlientBlair!!

15  Re: Craft This Tote Round 2! - Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by EllaRain on: February 05, 2012 11:55:20 AM
I received an awesome package from Antidigger.
First a pic of everything.

So much good stuff. Two wonderful Morsbags. A handy little notebook that quickly found a home in my purse and a very clever, not to mention adorable, turtle pincushion.

The First bag. The combination of fabrics and stamping is so neat.

The second bag. With a handy pocket for coupons.

The little turtle pincushion. So cute!!!!!!

I pulled the little turtle out first and exclaimed to my dh how adorable he was. Then to my surprise I found four elephants and a discworld hiding in the packaging. I realized that the turtle is actually none other then the Discworld' s Great A'tuin!!

If you have not read these books you should head to your library right away, because they are awesome. I did not put anything in my questionnaire about liking them but Antidigger did some serious stalking to make my package extra special Wink.

These were for a recent swap. I used my partner's love of anatomy as an excuse to learn a bunch of new stitches.

I have not heard from my partner is some time so I thought I would just post some pics of the things I sent.

The calendar itself was a wreath.

The compartment for each day was covered by a little numbered pillow

A small clickable picture of my bought items:

heart and brain patches (My partner studied anatomy so I stitched these up for her)

Mini Christmas cross-stich kits

A Grinch Ornament

A monster change purse

A hollow egg ornament (not sure why this picture ended up being so small)

A "Fallout" patch for her boyfriend

A dragon stuffie

two skull ornaments (her wist was full of skulls)

I am kind of ridiculously proud of the back of the day of the dead skull (though I do not seem to have gotten a very good picture of it).

Last two crafts: a wavy pleats zip from my partners wist

and the Christmas craft was this large pleated purse.

I was so excited when I found this fabric. It has skulls (which my partner indicated that she loves) with hot pink bows (she listed hot pink as one of her favorite colors). The zip above is lined in the skull fabric so that the two items coordinate.
Merry Christmas.

18  Snowflake Mobile in Winter Holidays by EllaRain on: December 11, 2011 06:50:58 PM

My new place has rather high ceilings.  I created this snowflake mobile to hang over our table. Hopefully it is high enough that the cat will not bat at it.  Wink She seemed very interested when I was making it.

Looks like I better save myself a spot. Wink
I got my camera battery charged and it is time to upload pictures.

Check out the the beautiful calendar tracethekat sent.

They are books  Grin (did I mention I love to read)
And inside are a whole bunch of little compartments closed with really cute scrapbooking paper.

Isn't that such a clever idea!?!

Day 1: Chocolates mmmm

Day 2: An elephant key chain straight off of my wist

 I just love him!

Day 3:  Some Werther's Originals (one of my favorite of candies)

Day 4: More chocolates

Day 5: A Santa ornament.

The picture just does not do this one justice. It is a combination of beads (which are much shiner in real life) and cross stitch and it is just gorgeous. I feel quite spoiled.

Day 6: Wrether's Orignials

Day 7: Christmasy Chocolates

Day 8: A "Ho Ho Ho" Block. The painting on this is really nice.

Day 9: The most adorable little tetris stitch holders. These are just like the ones on my wist only cuter because of their tinyness  Wink

Day 10: chocolates

Day 11: Popsicle sticks and toothpicks

Day 12: A brain slug (my hubby was excited to get this one)

Day 13: tetris magnets (so addictive to reorganize)

Day 14: cross-stitch supplies

Day 15: hardener

Day 16: more tetris magnets (here is the complete set).

Day 17: Chocolates (these never seem to last long enough to make it into a picture  Wink)

Day 18: Resin

Day 19: Plastic cups - I see now that I am slowly acquiring a resin making kit (suddenly the toothpicks, popsicle sticks and hardener make sense).  Resin is one of those crafts that I have been wanting to try so the realization was exciting!

Day 20: Mini cactus pincushion  Cheesy

Day 21: Colored pencils

Day 22: Chocolate

Day 23: Chocolates

Day 24: Little bear. (so cute and soft)


I got a collection of things for day 25. A santa cross-stitch. A cool wooden ornament and my favorite a giant ball stuffie. Something about his big adorable eyes makes me what to pick him up and throw him around  Grin.

20  Re: I need new earrings! Swap -Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by EllaRain on: July 28, 2011 01:04:13 PM
Wow this gallery had just exploded with awesome earrings  Cheesy. The heart and bow pair that stegorawrus made are so sweet and I am loving the hammered spirals timpani~jax created. Plus dopey_44, I love the lock and key earrings you sent. I think earrings that go together but do not match can be so fun.

Anyway,  I received from Mrs.LindsayLoo and am here to add to the awesomeness. I have been totally spoiled with not three, not four but seven beautiful pairs of earrings. Honestly, I do not know how she even fit all of these earrings into the tiny box she sent Grin.
On to the pics!

Usually I pick out clothing to wear and then pick a pair of earrings to match, but since I got these earrings I find myself choosing the other way round  Grin.  I am wearing the pink rose quartzs one now. I wore the cupcakes yesterday and intend to wear the cameos tomorrow.
They are all so nice that it is hard to pick a favorite, but I think it may be the purple ones. They are made from amythst and flouride and are just lovey (I could not get a picture that did them justice).

Thank-you Mrs.LindsayLoo for such a wonderful package!
