I had an ATC finally straggle its way into me.  lol.  The first one Oodelally sent me went missing, but the second made it!  YAY!  And it finishes up my Harry Potter ABCs, too!

From Oodelally for my Harry Potter ABCs "W":

A wonderful ATC and extras!  Two HP post cards and some ATC bases!  YAY!

An upclose of just the ATC.  W is for the Weasleys!  Yay!  She says the font she used is a knitted font!  How cool!  I love it!  Thanks so much Oodelally!

I also received from Mountains and Clouds, and as always, she does not disappoint!

TADA!  The one on the left says "Cooking up a storm!  WHEEEE!" which is exactly my sentiment!  My family has a hard time reining me in when I'm suppose to bring food.  BRING ALL THE FOOD!!!!  Its so bright and colorful!  Yay!  And the other is her favorite swimming spot, which others mentioned.  ^_^ 

And action shots, because I love pictures!

Thanks Mountains and Clouds!  I love 'em!  Now I have to decided which to use first!

Since mjnovak seems to be missing in action, here is the ATC I sent to her:

Yet another altered Sherlock Holmes image.  Its quite a surprise to find a zombie in your house!

And dewshinesdopp asked me to post this one for her for Artist's Choice (I chose her Star Wars theme, though):

A stormtrooper done in acrylic paint.

435  Chewie, the Wookiee Cookie w/ a function! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: February 16, 2012 05:42:41 PM
Hiya everyone!  I participated in the One Smallish Stuffie w/ a Function swap, and this is one of the stuffies I sent my swap partner, goldfishpollywog.

Presenting: Chewie the Wookiee Cookie MP3 holder (with detachable lanyard and Stormtropper Charm)! 

My husband found an awesome picture by Philip Tseng that had a cup and cookie as Han Solo and Chewbacca that were pretty freaking awesome.  Once I saw them, I knew I had to make that cookie for my partner!  The image he found is here: http://www.podpocalypse.com/2010/12/02/han-solo-cup-chewbacca-the-cookie/

and more of Philip Tseng's awesome work is here: http://minicubby.com/indexhibit/index.php?/illustrations/
His style is so quirky and fun!  I absolutely love everything on there!  <3

Back to the cookie!

Here is the front and back of the cookie.  He is made of fleece and has black safety eyes and nose.  His chocolate chips are also fleece, and his mouth and shoulder harness thingie (*gasp!*) is made out of black and white felt.  He has a pouch inside of him that holds the MP3 player.  The back is plain because I'm lazy, but it shows how the pouch stays closed, with velvet ribbon and a button.

The MP3 player slides in like so!

Here is upclose shot of the Stormtropper charm.  I did it on shrinky dink!  Weee!  And here is the cookie with his description card.  Its too small to read here, but it says:  "Hi!  Meet Chewie, your Wookie Cookie!  Wookie Cookies are not only sweet and delicious, but also a great place to store your mp3 player!  His gooey inside will cushion it safely."  The lanyard is so that she can wear the wookie cookie around her neck while she listens to her music.

Thanks for looking!

436  Ewok stuffie w/ a function! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: February 16, 2012 05:11:05 PM
Hiya everyone!  I participated in the One Smallish Stuffie w/ a Function swap, and this is one of the stuffies I sent my swap partner, goldfishpollywog.

Meet Paploo, the Ewok from Endor. 

This little guy is made of fake fur.  His eyes are buttons, and his nose and mouth are felt, with a little batting underneath.  He is stuffed with pollyfil.

His function, you ask?

He has a glasses cased sewed inside him so your glasses can be folded up and stored inside!

And here is with his description card as well.  Its kinda small to read, but it says: "Hi!  Meet Paploo, your friendly Ewok from Endor.  He is your new guardian of unattended eye wear.  He will fiercely defend and protect your glasses from Stormtropper hands.  The only reward he seeks in engaging in such a mighty endevour is an occasional hug.  He is quite snuggly!"  Its funny that the stuffie turned out cuter than my little doodle of him!  hehe

Thanks for looking!  ^_^

I have received some amazing cards lately!  This will be the first installment, and more to come tonight.  hehe

From AmandaBL for my E theme:

Such wonderful colors!  And I love the swirlies inside the E!  So pretty!

From jmiller614 for my Non-Curse Words theme:

Holy mackerel its a mackerel!  I looks like my scanner had a hard time focusing on it.  I love that she used all sorts of different stuff on there, a stick, tissue paper, tin foil!  My hubby noticed that there was fish hooks going along the border.  Super cool! 

From michelleandbean for my fireworks theme:

Beautiful embroidered fireworks!

Thanks, ladies, for the awesome cards!  I received some more today and on Monday that I need to post still.  I promise to do so later tonight.

My partner, goldfishpollywog, in the One Smallish Functional Stuffie swap received this weekend!  YAY YAY!  Now I can share with you all what I made her!

And you can soon tell that I couldn't just make one small functional stuffie.

A magnetic squirrel, great for attracting hair clips, bobby pins, and other miscellaneous metal objects.  The magnet in his belly is super strong and big, thus he looks like he is storing a whole bunch of nuts in his belly for winter. 

Next is a gold fish pouch for her earbuds inspired by her pinterest. 

Chewie, the wookie cookie MP3 holder w/ lanyard and stormtrooper charm made of shrinky dink.  My husband found a super funny picture of a cup as hon solo and this cookie and I knew I needed to make it for my partner.  The artist is Philip Tseng. 

And Paploo, the Ewok glasses holder!  He's my favorite.  ^_^

Here are some better pictures of what I sent to gala_apples:

This one I claimed her for in the swap and it was done in watercolors.

Yet another altered picture from the illustrated Sherlock Holmes book.  The inside is done in watercolors and the blue border is done in rub N buff.  This one was for a personal swap.  ^_^

I received from my super awesome incredible partner, goldfishpollywog!  YAY YAY YAY!!!!

Everything was wrapped up in tissue paper and labeled!  Ooooo!  What's inside!  WHAT'S INSIDE?!?!?

Presenting: my new pen/pencil holder, Dobby!!!

Omg, the cutest crocheted little fellow!  I LURVE him!  She did such an awesome job on him!!  He has pipecleaners in his limbs so that they can wrap around the desired writing device.  Me thinks he will be going to work with me.  I'm pretty sure I will get more done with him there.

A much desired pin cushion!  The arms of my couch and recliner (and husband) thank you for this one!

She caught the snitch!  She says that this is an old one from the court re-purposed into a pin cushion for me!  Ooooo!  She did such an amazing job on the wings!

A sorting hat!  And inside, an emergency sewing kit!  Oooooo!!!

Look at the great little sewing things inside!  Yay tiny scissors!  It will be so handy on trips!  Just throw it in the bag!

And finally: something to hold my wishes and dreams! 

A lovely owl holding a broom stick! This is so pretty!  I think I will put it in my room next to my side of the bed.  Then when my wishes and dream seep out of my head while I sleep the owl will snatch 'em up and save 'em for me!  YAY!!

And a group shot of all my goodies (including a bag of chocolates - aka health restorative) .

I love everything!  Thank you so much goldfishpollywog!  You were a great partner!!
