Yes! You just made my day. I'm alien-green with envy. You got just the right kind of blue.. awww.. I've been keeping my eyes open for that very color for ages.
I totally vote you wear that every day! The world needs more Trekkies=) Well, if I can't have the shirt, I'll at least wear my badge today=)

How about you cut them vertically in half , paint them white and use them to make tiny picket fences for flower pots? ( this idea might have something to do with my activities of the last night and day- redoing my flower pots for the windowsills) Wink

Thank you all for those lovely comments =) makes me really happy that someone other than myself enjoys the creation of silly stuff. And I discovered a great thing about them: because I don't have them hanging anywhere, where I can regularly see them, they kind of jump out at me at unexpected times =) (mostly when I'm looking for something to wear and can't find anything to suit me) So, not only do they smell nice, they cheer you up at the same time.
=)

What a wonderful, if sad, story- it's strange how arts and crafts sometimes make the inner truth come out. I agree that it is the best way to deal with turmoil, whatever the cause might be. Creating something out of misery is a beautiful thing.
And Memory is very beautiful, I think it's the perfect name for her facial expression.

I really feel for you and your loss. There is almost nothing that can hurt you more than a person going away and leaving you with regrets, especially regrets about things NOT done. I've found that it is true, that while at first one might feel deeply sad about things not done, it will eventually make some sort of sense, even if it takes a while to find that out. I'm really happy that crafting Memory helped you on the way.
Sending lots of hugs! =)

What a great spin on easter eggs!  I really like how you've displayed them too Smiley

Thank you! =)
The red and leopattern background is actually my kitchen. Strangely, it just happenend to be there and somehow, the eggs match my kitchen.. It's going to be hard to give them away ;( But there's a silver lining: when I've given them away, I'll have a reason to make more=)

Oh, he is lovely! I really enjoy your art, your creations are always so heartwrenchingly lovable. I want to just hug and cuddle them. I'd really like to see the whole set =)
1157  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Martian Easter Circus (lots'o'pics) on: April 14, 2011 08:17:38 PM


What do you do if you wake up in the middle of the night and the internet isn't working? Well, make a Martian Easter Circus of course=)

I made them from empty eggshells- I'm sure you're familiar with the procedure- poke a hole in the top and bottom and blow the contents out. Kind of gross, but afterwards you can decorate the eggs and hang them on twigs=)
I used a bunch of pipecleaners, pompoms ( who knew you can actually get that stuff in Germany..), eyes and ribbons. The coloring is done with permanent markers- a lot less of a mess that way=)
And here we go:






So, what do you think? ( I'm always very happy about comments and I do appreciate critique as well) Wink
1158  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Spellbook - Family Recipe Book on: April 13, 2011 11:56:50 AM
...I was just looking through my recipes and noticed how they always seem to get messed up and blotched by actually using them....

Yeah, we intentionally age and distress the pages so you can't tell it from the stains we put on it cooking.  Wink  You should see some of our old recipe books.  You can judge the recipes by how illegible and filthy the pages are.  Cheesy  We finally got wise just a while back and installed a book holder under the cabinets above the counter.

A book holder... hmmm... that might even work in my kitchen- good idea... And don't you just hate it when the stains end up (for instance) on the number of eggs you'll need? =)
I agree about the quality of recipes being visible by illegibility of the page .. Wink Also, it always reminds me of a Jackson Pollock using food for painting.

Wow! Rocked and bookmarked. =)
This looks incredible ( and like a LOT of work)! I love the asian asymmetrical stuff. Great, great , great job.

Rocked and book-marked him!  This is so super-duper.
I'd be scared to fart in my chair though - so rude to toot in his mouth!

=) seeing as Gnarf! is frequently molded around male buttocks now, I'm afraid he'll have to get used to the occasional "wind" ....  and judging from his facial expression he'll probably like it. (Also, he has no nose.) So, no need to fear. Wink
