291  Re: Deer-Proof Your Garden - One Solution in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: May 12, 2012 10:09:43 AM
Here ya go.  It's a piece of bird netting stretched between two posts.  One side of the netting is attached to a wooden stake, the other side is permanently affixed to the metal stake closest to the camera.



When it's closed/in place, a wire loop attached to the post closest to the greenhouse holds the wooden stake in place.  There's also a wire loop at the base of this metal post. 



Here it is open.  We just lay the stake on the ground while we're working in the garden.  For something so simple, it was hard to describe!  LMK if you have any questions.

292  Altered Altoid Tins: Various Themes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MissingWillow on: May 08, 2012 09:12:26 AM
For the Craftster meetup last weekend with rackycoo, cackle and Killam Creative, the little swap suggestion was to craft small tins or ATCs for each other based on a theme.  Of course those three are all awesome papercrafters but I decided to suck it up and do my best (at least I'd get something fantastic out of the deal!)  Grin.  I told them to be fair, they'd need to bust out their sewing machines for our next in-person swap!  Cheesy 

Cackle's theme was mermaids.





Rackcoo's theme was child beauty pageants.







Killam Creative's theme was butterflies, you'll find her altoid tin over on the machine embroidery board

293  Embroidered Altoid Tin Pin Cushion in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: May 08, 2012 08:12:34 AM
I met Killam Creative last weekend at a crafty get together, she's an amazing papercrafter and a really fun, artistic person!  We agreed ahead of time to make each other something to swap based on a theme, and the one she chose was butterflies.  Since I'm totally not an amazing papercrafter myself, I decided to make her a machine embroidered butterfly pin cushion out of an altoid tin.  I made a tin-sized pillow from the embroidered fabric, lined it with colorful felt and glued it into an embellished tin.  I was surprised to learn she makes and sells hat pins and collects pin cushions so this ended up being a good fit.  I love happy accidents (and Killam Creative).   Smiley

I received my badge from MareMare, isn't it sweet?  She made me a weeping willow tree.  I love how she did the leaves, so clever.  Thank you so much, MareMare!

My package from zzdia came today.. woo hoo!  She even picked up a few of these goodies when she was traveling to Singapore, so it is a multinational international swap package.   Smiley  These are going straight to my daughter, who loves everything Japanese.  She's going to flip over the crispy fried squid treats.



Caramels, Kinder Bueno, Tim Tams and gummy bears.  We sent each other gummy bears, how funny!  Truly the international snack.



Turrones de Casoy, one of her faves.  Can't wait to try it.  Short breads, cupcakes and what we call elephant ears. They are delicious! 



Dried mangoes and an assortment of crisps. 



And a handmade doily inspired by a table runner from my wist.  Thank you so much, zzdia, We're looking forward to trying it all!

297  Wish Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MissingWillow on: April 26, 2012 12:52:09 PM
My partner for the international snack swap received yesterday.  Zzdia had a sweet dandelion necklace on her pinterest.  The day I received her partner questionnaire was the same day I had noticed the first dandelion popping up in our yard.  It was fate!  I sealed some of the fluff inside a tiny glass bottle and added a 'wish' charm.  Too cute!
