31  1940s Wonder Woman Perler Bead Challenge Entry - Picture Heavy in Completed Projects by Helena Puck on: June 12, 2013 04:45:38 AM

This is my first challenge entry. I hope I posted in the right area.

I made a perler bead portrait of the 1940s Wonder Woman based on the cover of the archive edition.

I created the pattern using PCStitch Pro, cross stitch program software.

The largest grid I had was the yellow square I am working on in the picture so I had to create the portrait square by square starting with the center of her face.

After I put the pieces of Wonder Woman's portrait together, I put her in a shadow box lined with yellow scrapbook paper.

Here is the package I received from SevsOnlyGirl. She sent a red glitter painted trinket box, a handpainted shirt, poppies embroidery hoop using red glitter thread, and a painting of some of the characters which looks like a Oz parody of the bathroom sign.

She noticed my love for poppies, glitter, and the ruby red shoes on the witch's stripped socked feet. I love everything!

Be sure to post in this thread at least once a week to foster good communication...

Member receiving will be responsible for risks involved with swap (making sure button eyes aren't swallowed, candy doesn't contain allergens and such horrors not likely, but theoretically possible).  We expect common sense. Wink

36  Kids' Craft Swap Round 6 in New Swap Theme Ideas by Helena Puck on: May 20, 2013 05:02:40 AM

It is almost June which means, for us, the kids will be home for the summer. Who is ready for another Kids' Craft Swap?

Here is the thread for last year's swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=409083.0#axzz2TpgAoXBs

Here is our wonderful gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410481.msg4846659#msg4846659

I want to organize a 5 point swap. One medium item or large item will be made by the parent with the child's assistance while the rest will be made by the children.

I will try to match based on ages, gender (if you it matters to your child), shipping preferences, and allergies. If you have more children, you can sign each child up for the swap.

Let me know what dates are preferred.

My boys are eager to start sculpting clay and making plushies.

Here is the amazing goodies mariak sent me all the way from England.

First, she's been taunting me about the clever box she found for me. And after peaking into the package, I discovered why . . . she found the perfect box, Race to Smurf Village Game box which included the completed game.

Here is what was inside!!

I can really tell a lot of thought went into each detail. She included all my favorite goodies, down to the very smurfy box. My husband and I play boardgames and I collect smurfs.

Figaro sits back in amazement at all the awesome. She and the other kitties were very excited about the rattling mouse, Felix, Maria included in the package Smiley

Also, included in the package:

embroidery hoopla tree with mine and my husband's names taken directly from my pinterest board- it is exactly what I wanted!!!

A small crochet Spider-Man for my son which he loves

two matchbox robots that both of the boys are crazy about

bottle cap Angry Bird magnets in a angry bird tin

a handmade Wizard of Oz charm bracelet

a cactus pin cushion (crazy about pincushions now that I started sewing)

two monster bookmarks (they are sinking their teeth into a good book, lol)

a long dangly keychain with Alice in Wonderland quotes with the Cheshire cat and White Rabbit made from plastic shrink

a tiny panda cross stitch "stitchables" kit

rose and heart elastic beaded bracelet (which I am wearing now)

Lots of postcards: Brighton, Tower Bridge, Windsor, The London Eye, and two more of London sights

Top Trumps Doctor Who!

A caramel cocoa packet- I was so excited I torn it open and poured it in my hand. Discovering that it was not candy but powder, I quickly poured my hand and the rest of the mix into a cup. Silly me!

coloring pages, stickers and chalk paper owls

beads, sequins, charms, dominos, buttons,a large foam stamp, and a Russian doll stamp- love supplies

Cute pink kitty magnet

cookie cutters (because I collect and craft with cookie cutters)
toy Buzz Lightyear

Clips (perfect for organizing graded/ungraded papers)

dog bone paper clips, decorative flower paperclips, and an oversize paperclips

a square of canvas (In a couple days, you are going to realize why this is funny).

Thank you so much! This is exactly what I wanted. . . EVERYTHING. What a great stalker you are. I think the Trumps game was from my Amazon wishlist.

So I had a fun adventure this morning...

I just hope the amazon returns guy laughs as much as I did at this XD

I once worked at the Amazon returns center. I would have been thrilled to see this quote. Not only is it funny but it gives me a nice warning to not stick my hand in a box of broken glass. However, sometimes when something is obviously broken and rattling, boxes aren't completely opened for safety reasons.
