1  Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Rnd 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Killam Creative on: June 28, 2016 06:24:08 AM
Here's the package from Missing Willow!

I finally got to open the first 3 days!

Day 1: The table is set for a ghoulishly good time!

Day 2:  An art doll witch! I admit I squealed and got a little happy-teary when I opened her.

Day 3:  A wee trick-or-treater in true vintage costume style!

Day 4: OMG. A fantastic selection of homemade goat milk soaps. They smell SOOO good!

Day 5: A batty bar set and 3 gin recipes.  SQUEE!

Day 6: Ooh, this one is super special. We spent hours doing pottery together last summer. I love knowing the space she sat in while making this wee shrine.  This brings back fun memories!

Day 7: A wicked little mantle!

Day 8: A mug, mug rug, and a little bit o' sweet! I love this glaze, MW. ...Wait a minute. There are pockets in my mug rug!

Day 9: A pewter serving tray with a rat! It has candy on it now. Perfect! The Halloween coasters are reversible - I'm in love wth the dancing skelly. Smiley

Day 10: Ok, so this altered tin made me weak in the knees. MW, you win. I adore this scene. No lie - I stared at the moon last night wondering if he really *does* see me. Sigh.

Also - The green felt grass is fantastic, the ceramic moon is perfect, and the bunny melts me.

Day 11: These bowls! I'm so fancy now. And hungry for Pimento Cheese! Yours is so good and I appreciate that you sent your recipe. Yum!

Gah! I just realized the gold paint doesn't show well -- the houses and bowl base are all gold. Fancy!

Day 12: Spider Scarf! Eek! I love it so much.

This morning in bed I watched a spider walk around a small area above the bed. It looked to be making a web on the ceiling surface... why? Is it going to have babies and the web helps them from falling in their first hours? ::shudder:: I should go back in there and check, right? I mean, it's over my bed.

Day 13: Halloween kitchen towels! I was secretly hoping MW would send something embroidered. Killam Manor makes me so happy!

Missing Willow - thank you SO MUCH! This has been a fun swap with a special partner. ::smooches::

2  Patriot Altered Tin in Completed Projects by Killam Creative on: February 20, 2016 07:59:38 PM
I recycled a soap tin into a patriotic-themed scene. Inside are vintage bits and bobs from here and there. The wooden piper was found in a box at an old toy store nearby. He is perfectly distressed from tumbling around with lead soldiers!

3  Fairy Garden Box in Completed Projects by Killam Creative on: September 23, 2014 11:11:44 AM
I made a fairy garden for my sister cackle in the IYP 26 swap. It was difficult to part with!

It's a cigar box that I sanded and covered with paper. I left some of the pretty wood bare.

This was so much fun to make!

I received the most wonderful and thoughtful IYP swap from cackle! I told her how much I loved her Christmas ornaments. Guess what she did?! She made me a whole tree trimming kit in miniature! It will be perfect for a 24" table top tree.

Sets the tone:

Here's the beautiful box outside:

This is a not-so-good photo (I was rushing the pics - sorry!) of the whole kit:

Inside -- each beautiful ornament was wrapped in tissue, but that doesn't make for a good photo...):

Some details--

Look at the tiny Merry Christmas banner!

The wee ornaments on the left:

The wee ornies on the right:

A look at the tops:

Cackle, thank you so much. I will treasure this forever!

I received from Mountains and Clouds then promptly fell off the face of the Earth/internet....

Edited to add pictures!

Here's the fun mini tin Mountains and clouds made for my Halloween theme:

Can you see the light? There's a wee switch on the bottom to light up the pumpkin's insides -- very hard to photograph but very cool to see!

Thanks so much Sara!

Yay! I can't believe it arrived so fast! The moon's wire can be straightened so he doesn't look like he passed out in transit. 😄 The pocket in front says: " She had the stars in her pocket and the moon on a string". I'm so happy you like it, MnC!

Here's another photo with the moon standing tall. You shouldn't have a problem bending the wire straight as long as you're careful.

7  Boo! Halloween Spool in Completed Projects by Killam Creative on: June 15, 2014 07:52:18 AM
I made this for pottermouth in the Altered Spool Swap. She had Halloween as a possible theme so I ran with it.

Here's one of the three spools - It was "stained" with a little bit of ink.

The raven spool was painted black and covered with papers, and the third is a tiny half-spool stuck to the back of the skellie. I used a wire hanger as the skellie stand - bent to slide into the top of the half-spool and stuck to a small stand at the base.

Come see the awesome Altered Spool Swap gallery here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433749#axzz34XwBavCH

OK swappers, be prepared to be amazed. AMAZED, I say! After a crushingly long wait, the postie delivered pottermouth's fantastic spoolie art. OMG, is all I can say right now.

I give you the wonderful world of Fairy Hill.

Hand carved (?) doors and windows!

Carved cork doorway cover and pinecone seed window shades!

See what those fairies are hiding?

I am so thrilled with this, pottermouth! Thank you so much for your attention to detail and creative mind. I'm a lucky swapper!

Look what I found in a closet! *sheesh* I didn't realize I had all this stuff. The tall spool in the back is so full of awesome if you can disregard the fact that it looks like it's last job was as a chew toy for a doggie.

10  A Wee Wicked Forest in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Killam Creative on: March 03, 2014 11:46:06 AM
I made this for the Wicked Forest Altered Matchbox Swap, found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407942.msg4811588#msg4811588

I was lucky enough to have Knickertwist as a partner, and this is what I sent her. The matchbox was painted brown and covered with bits of moss and fungus. The cottage is made from paper clay, painted and distressed to look old. I made the tiny stepping stones from paper clay, also.

See the tiny cauldron? Also paper clay. Smiley The chipboard trees are painted brown, then green on top - simples!

Inside the matchbox is the cottage potions shelf.

It's hard to believe how small this really is, so here's a ruler for scale.

Thanks for looking!
