111  Re: AND It all Started with the BIG BANG THEORY SWAP!!!! GALLERY in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Helena Puck on: March 30, 2012 07:28:27 AM
Check out what Eclectic Dreamer sent me!

First, here is the box. I'm looking forward to using the superheroes stamps for future crafting projects.

Here is the group shot

There is:
a Sheldon doll
two Rooster cloth trivets with Sheldon's Chicken jokes (Why did the chick cross the Mobius Strip?- To get to the same Side. Bazinga) & (You can lead a chicken to crisco, but you can't make your Mother fry it) - I love the episode with Sheldon getting drunk before his speech and the one with his mother's visit. I love when she visits. She's so funny.
a planet apron
Batman frame
Alien bookmarks
and lots of fun extras for me and my family (Milkduds, planet wall decals, glitter foam sheets, glitter glue, Spider-man coloring poster, glue sticks, and mickey cardstock).

Here is the close up of the adorable Sheldon doll. He played with my Spock action figure yesterday to celebrate Nimoy's guest appearance.

The milkdud boxes were decorated with card stock and Sheldon quotes

Here I am wearing the apron. It fits perfect! Please excuse the angle, my six year old son took the picture. I've been needing an apron and I'm going to use this for my upcoming craft shows.

Eclectic Dreamer really did her research. Lots of superhero goodies! This Batman picture is perfect for our house. Superheroes hide throughout the whole house. I love the paper cutting Batman symbol. My partner said I could use it for family pictures when we are dressed as Superheroes. That's a great idea. I may do that; however, right now, it hangs in our dining room.  I didn't hang the picture at an angle. I had to move the camera until there was no glare or reflections on the glass.

Check out what skittlebub sent me.

First some yummy goodness all the way from Australia!

It got a little warm and soft but I put it in the fridge. I'm sure it's going to be yummy later today.

Then, this wonderful Papa Smurf towel.

While it would look wonderful it my smurfy kitchen, I decided to use it as a hand towel in the bathroom over the sink. The angry birds needed some smurfiness in there too.

Thanks again skittlebub!

Beautiful bag!

Here is what I received from HowdySailor

Aren't they the Smurfiest? The magnets are a wonderful addition to my smurfy kitchen. Thanks again!

Check out what amigurl55 sent me.

First, a group shot

The Curious embroidery was inspired by a pin from my pinterest board. The other Hoopla hoopla came from a hoopla amigurl55 made that I admired. The hoopla character came from an episode of SpongeBob. Here is amigurl55's original thread

She also sent an amazing tea wallet using embroidery themed fabric. I've been wanting a tea wallet too and it's full of tea, perfect for this rainy day.

The hooplas proudly hang on my art/needlecraft wall above my baby bed full of plushies. Sorry the picture is dark. Lighting isn't the greatest in the bedroom. We can't hang any ceiling lighting, only floor lamps. The Hooplas looks beautiful and they are a nice addition to my wall.

RikaHeart, the shirt looks great on you. I'm so glad it fit. My husband almost stole that too. I'm glad the bracelet protected you!

Here is a picture of the necklace and don't worry, I'm working on another one

I'd love to take credit for the photo edit but sadly, I found the picture on pinterest and I'm uncertain of the source. But RikaHeart had to have it because her favorite TMNT is Raphael.

119  My first attempt at Embroidery in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by Helena Puck on: February 28, 2012 06:08:30 AM
I've been wanting to try out embroidery for awhile because I think it is beautiful and I like the freedom embroidery allows; however, I was nervous because I'm a long time cross stitched used to following a specific pattern. I wasn't sure how to make the stitches the same lengths or what type of stitches are used for different designs.

I picked up a kit from Sublime Stitching around December and I've been staring at it, thinking I was going to mess it up. Gathering up the courage, I started on kit yesterday. I used the transfer sheet and ironed the picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe onto a piece of white fabric which resulted in beautiful Mary imprint on the white fabric, as well as the cover of my ironing board.

I used a combination of backstitching, slip stitching and stem stitching. I really like split stitching. Sublime stitching include a nice little reference sheet and the three stitching techniques and chain stitching. I also liked that the transfer sheet was reusable.

I actually meant to add beads around the sun's rays but I was so excited about how quickly I was able to finish the completed picture I framed it immediately using adhesive board and a glassless frame.

Check it out! Oodelally made me my own little Wonder Woman booklet full of great images of Wonder Woman through history with inspiration quotes and a little removable bookmark with a quote on Friendship. Check out Oodelally made embellishing and papercrafty skills!

Here are the list of quotes included:
"Of all People, you know who I am... who the world needs me to be. I'm Wonder Woman."
"This is the Golden Lasso. Besides being made from an indestructible material, it also carries with it the power to compel people to tell the truth. Use it well and with compassion" - Queen Hippolyte.
"Go in Peace my daughter, and Remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman" - Queen Hippolyte
"If it means interfering in an ensconced, outdated system, to help just one woman, man or child. . . I'm willing to accept the consequences."
"Please take my hand. I give it to you as a gesture of friendship and love and of faith freely give. I give you my hand and welcome you into my dream."

Here is the cover on the postage envelope. I'm planning on using those great Koala stamps for a later craft project too.

The pictures of each page of the booklet will be posted on my blog asap.
