Gator reminded me to post a photo, too. Seems like several of us have been too caught up in crafting to tend to that issue.  Grin

These are the Retro Braided Wreaths I'm offering. They measure about 4-5" across.

That bag is quite the attention grabber! I bet it would look wild in an orange and black Halloween inspired palette.

I think you're right, but since the only reason I made it was to fulfill one of the requirements for my crochet club's fair entry, I may not be making another bag anytime soon.  Cheesy These are the placemats and coasters I also made for the club entry.

My sil would claim Mario, I want the raven, and Kookaloo's baby afghan looks Mary Poppins "practically perfect in every way".

This crocheted bag is the most recent non-quilt block that I've made. Feel like I've been piecing quilt blocks unceasingly. I started with a pattern from Michael's and did a few slight alterations such as making the handles wider and the bottom more rounded.

Received from our great organizer, Gala_apples. First up a great set of abstract designs that she handcut.

Then a green patchwork that makes me think of the quilts I piece and a hexagon design that's way cute.

A fabulous black and white card that looks good no matter which direction I turn it and an aqua card that makes me think of tiny bubbles coming from a glass of pop(soda). It's definitely a fun card.

And lastly, this country style blue gingham card and a Christmas card in blue and white (another one of my favorite color combos).

Thanks, Gala!

I received from ale0059 and kfad yesterday. Wonderful cards from each!

These were from kfad: several thank you notes, a Thanksgiving card, and a jar of joy. For some reason the colors are faded in appearance in the photo, but are actually much more intense in shade.

Several birthday cards, a Hello note, and a Christmas card.

More Christmas cards. The trees have silver stickles as ornaments and are on a silver dotted background.

And a set of cute gift tags with tiny pom-pom and velvet ribbon trims.

Then these came from ale0059, Halloween monsters with coordinating origami-style envelopes. Since we have four female family members with Halloween birthdays (one on Oct. 30th, the other three on Oct. 31st), the monsters may be wishing them a Happy Birthday rather than a Happy Halloween. The kids will love them! Much more fun than the usual cards they get!

Thank you both so much!

Kfad, these are the shots I took. Just one technical comment: I used aluminum heating and air-conditioning duct tape for the steampunk cards. It can be embossed, painted, sanded, and die-cut among other techniques, comes in several widths and has a paper-coated adhesive backing. It can be found at home supply stores like Lowe's, Home Depot, Atwood's. This was my first time to use it and I'm in love with all it can do, so thought I'd spread the word so the rest of you can try it, too.

I nominate Onyxnox "Queen of the Crafted Notecards Swap". It's hard to even know where to start with her artistry.
First up, the cute, little, heat embossed card she sent with a note.

Then let's start with the "generic" notecard - She created two of each design and made matching envelopes for each card. At the top of each photo you'll see the front and back of the envelopes. The exterior and interior of the cards are shown in the bottom of each shot. On these cards she used a delicate, silver embossed, scroll design for the background, then topped it with a double layered mat and the stamped pen nib image. So elegant!

Then she went with my holidays theme:
Halloween - DD#1 claimed these, but only because her sister hasn't seen them yet. I suspect there may be a battle over them. Luckily there are two cards, so I foresee I may have to do a King Solomon on them; split them and give one to each.

Thanksgiving - Even more heat embossing on these gorgeous beauties. This time in copper and a dark brown. They look so professional and just shout out "Fall". They look so rich yet earthy!

And then my favorites: Christmas. The photos don't even begin to do them justice. (I tried flipping this photo several times but no luck.) The stamping and embossing were done in silver which stands out so beautifully on the blue cardstock. The interior paper is a white pearlized cardstock. Although the snowflakes on the front look white, they're actually a silver foil and the ribbon strip down the center is more of the pearlized paper that has been embossed with snowflakes.

Love these cards: simple, elegant, beautiful, and rich with understated details. Thank you again, Onyxnox!

Is this it? Yes, yes, I think it is! This is my spot.  Grin

Group 1
Sloth003 - block 1 & block 3

Stellou - Friendship Star blocks

Sparkledust - Anvil blocks  Even though two of the blocks look blue, I promise they're really purple. I had hoped that photographing them outdoors would give true colors, but guess the problem is with my camera rather than the lighting.

Alwaysinmyroom - Garden Fence blocks

Group 2
Carolmb - Road to Oklahoma blocks. My paternal grandmother was born in Indian Territories, which became eastern Oklahoma, the first member of her family not to be born in France. My paternal grandfather immigrated here from Italy. My maternal grandfather came from St. Louis but his mother came from Bohemia. My maternal grandmother was born in Texas, but her ancestry traces back to Scotland, Ireland, Wales, a co-author of the Declaration of Independence, and a signer of that document. So the Road to Oklahoma block truly does represent the paths my family took to arrive here. The background looks like dust swirls, which reminds me of the Dust Bowl that ravaged western Oklahoma in the 1920s and 30s. The green represents our trees and grasslands. Oklahoma is home to one of the largest and last untouched grassland prairies left in the US and my part of the state is referred to as Green Country.

Melladh - cats

Cursive_Queen - Halloween stars

Emisaurus - Broken Herringbone

Group 3
Sloth003 - blocks 2 & 4

Emisaurus - Broken Herringbone
