31  Recycled Christmas Cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Helena Puck on: January 05, 2014 04:07:08 PM
I started playing with my gingerbread punch and washi tape and came up with some simple cards for next year. I'm hoping to send the people's cards back to them in gingerbread form Smiley

Also, with my huge collection of remaining gingerbread shapes, I made gingerbread garland by sewing the gingerbread shapes with my sewing machine.

Woot! Look what Saintcady sent me Smiley

Oops, late to the party yet again! I had a show this weekend and last weekend which kept me terribly busy.

Day 1- Apple Butter and Blueberry plum! ! ! LOVE IT. YUM

Day 2- 4 ribbon birds in a green tin. They are precious and went directly on the tree. The cats are a little bit more interested in the tree because of the big long tails. The birds have woven ribbon bodies. They are absolutely beautiful. I'll take another picture soon with the birds on the tree.

Day 3

Washi tape, ink pads, an apple cozy, a lego mold. . . My swap partner is awesome! She knows just want I like. I believe she found the cozy and mold on my pinterest. And she knew I use Washi tape and ink pads for stamps.

an apple cozy!!

And, here is my little one very excited about the new lego mold Smiley

Day 4

A sock board!! Painted Yellow, my favorite color. I think I had something similar pinned on pinterest. I just love it. It is exactly what I wanted.

In my rush to take a picture, I didn't realize the picture uploaded upside down. So if everyone could turn their screens upsidedown, there ya go, just like that. .. you'll see the wonderful Inscription, "seeking sole mates." Smiley  SOLE! like the sock Smiley

Day 5

CORALINE- Perfect light reading for the break. A great way to end grading session!


Day 6

Woodcarving books for my husband!!

Oops, I over looked a couple of boxes for Day 5 and 6. Inside one is a Wizard of Oz Mug that reads "Don't make me release the Flying Monkeys" and the other is a mug for my husband, the avid coffee drinker.

Day 7 - An Angel, who now hangs toward the top of the tree. She's beautiful!

Day 8 - Omnom for my oldest little one! He loves it! So cute!

Day 9- an AMAZING C3PO

And the appreciative recipient!

Day 10- a crocheted hat. I need to get a picture of me wearing it. It's very Downton Abbey.

Day 11- beads, hemp, organizer, and jewelry book. I love to make jewelry and I've never tried this yet and always wanted to. THANKS. This rocks!

Day 12- And, check out this awesome-ness, a crocheted Percy, who was a big hit with my nephew today.

Check out all the Spoilage from Kittykill!

When I got home from work, there was a huge box waiting for me. Pam did a wonderful job identify lots of my personal interests and style.

First, here is a beautiful mermaid hoopla! Because I LOVE mermaids.

Here are the rest of the goodies: A Mary planter from my pinterest list, a set of 3 Nightmare Before Christmas Toys which made Jakob really happy because he almost swiped Mickey from the package #2- we decided to share, a Santa mug filled with chocolate tea bags and a red teapot ornament, a journal because I'm an avid list writer, and last but not least a Beautiful, Beautiful Christmas wreath!!

Bailey thought the wreath made a nice hat. He likes like a multi-colored rain cloud. Fortunately, he didn't hurt the wreath.

I just love EVERYTHING! I'm almost a little embarrassed about the envelope coming your way because of all this spoilage. I hope you love what I've sent as much as I love everything you sent me. It was wonderful getting to know you. I hope to stay in touch!

I received package #2 from the amazingly talented kittykill

Because we both love Halloween, she sent a beautiful embroidery towel, more washi tape, thread, two Disney figurines which my little tried to swipe from me, and a beautiful little card that reminds me of Toto.

Here are the two figures that were inside the surprise Disney boxes. They are two of my favorites, Ariel and Mickey from Fantasia:

And last but not least, she made me an embroidered tote based on the embroidery patterns I pinned on pinterest. I LOVE IT!!! I would have taken a better picture but my kitten was trying to claim in for herself. The stitching is phenomenal. I love each and every design.

Thanks again, Pam! You rock!

Everyone, prepare to be amazed by the talented P_E_S_T!!! She completely spoiled me, well . . . she spoiled my whole family.

Here are all the packages. Each were numbered with a little clue about each one of the card.

The first package was to keep me in shape. Inside the package was cookie cutters because I love to bake and craft with cutters. I love the new fun shapes! That little cupid will most likely help me make the boys' valentine's day cards.

Skipping ahead a bit, here are some of the other goodies in the other packages which include a set of
Color Variant thread (I can't wait to use it), a Beatrix Potter Hoopla (LOVE IT), paper trees (perfect for this year's card making), SpongeBob cupcake holders and toppers for my little ones, a stamped needlepoint kit which I can't wait to try, a hoop, and romantic sticky notes for the hubby.

Package 7 was for my penguin crazy son. It's called Fish's Revenge. HILARIOUS! The three penguins fit in the little fishy pouch.

My other little who received a headdress and quill. Sorry, I didn't get a great picture because he snatched it pretty quickly and he was bouncing around the house.

And last but not least, the most amazing thing ever!!! A needlefelted nativity scene which includes a pregnant Mary Smiley, the three wise men, Joseph, Jesus, a shepherd with a lamb, and a beautiful storage box.

I am in awe of this beautiful set!

Bailey just received his package from Afton, patty_o_furniture little one.

Bailey's favorite was the Fluffy shirt. He even snuggled up with it. He said, "Wow, I never thought someone would make a Fluffy shirt." That was really thoughtful. Fluffy is Bailey's companion and fidget.

And here is Fluffy's new penguin felt hat!

And, she sent an amazing I-Spy bag, a Kirby pouch, and a painted Mario keychain! I'm going to stick the I-Spy bag in the car as a great travel activity.

And, she sent an amazing Angry Birds pom pom ball plays set with a working cling shot, blocks, and foam boards! They have been playing with them together, NICELY, ever since the mail came. He got off the video game to play with this new goodies.

The container was filled with birds and goodies!

Great job Afton and Mom! You made two little boys very happy!

40  broken figures and computer parts? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Helena Puck on: July 10, 2013 04:46:25 PM
Recently, my son's friend came over and knocked down a trinket shelf. While many of my resin pieces held up nicely, there were a few pieces that were broken beyond repair. But after seeing Franken Kitty, I can't bring myself to throw them out. What should I do with them?

Here they are:

And, my other question is what can I do with computer parts? I know there are some great jewelry pieces that can be made. I was thinking about putting them in resin or something.

Here is what I have:

Oh, I also have a music box parts too.
