I have a few additions!  Yay!

Lindyv321 did some embroidery for me, and I sewed them onto some aprons!  See? 




I made wedge pillows for my parents for Christmas:



And I made my mom a purse for Christmas (my first purse, so proud of myself!), with some long distance help from my Craftster bestie Gozer ( Kiss):

WOW!! Everyone has been so busy!  So many fabulous projects!  I wish I had time to comment on all of them!

Prompt:  October Chupacabra
Team: Wordy
Project Name: Birdie wedge pillow
Brief Description: I made this for my mom for Christmas.  She and my dad both love to read or watch movies in bed, so I made them each a wedge pillow.  I expect a Chupacabra would be happy to eat any bird it managed to catch!

Prompt:  November -Body
Team: Wordy
Project Name: Blue wedge pillow
Brief Description: I made this for my dad for Christmas.  I'm sure his body will appreciate a little extra comfort!  This picture shows off the zipper on the bottom.  The pillows and pillow covers are separate for easy washing.

Prompt:  November -Taste
Team: Wordy
Project Name: "Rollin" apron
Brief Description: I made this for my sister in law for Christmas.  I'm sure she will find a use for this as she whips up tasty treats!  Embroidery courtesy of Lindyv321.  This probably shouldn't have taken more than 30 minutes, but I trimmed, and pressed, and trimmed and pressed... it took a while to make it as close to perfect as I could.

Project Name: "Bakers" apron
Brief Description: I made this for my mom for Christmas.  Mrs. Claus is a mythological creature.  I imagine she wears an apron when she's baking Christmas goodies.  Again, embroidery courtesy of lindyv321.

Prompt: Big Time
Team: Wordy
Project Name: Purse
Brief Description: I made this for my mom for Christmas, with some long-distance help from my crafty bestie, Gozer!  I love the way this turned out and I think my mom will be impressed with my first attempt at making a purse.  I included a close up coz I was so delighted with this fun little stitch I found to secure the strap!  Feeling pretty pleased with myself with this purse, I must say.

Ha!  I'm here, and I RECEIVED!  Woot, woot!!

Onyxnox is a spoiler....



She told me I could enjoy the extras early.  So far I have devoured a bag of delicious ketchup chips (well the littlest helped a bit), and I opened this wonderful and amazing surprise:



The biggest "gift" I have received so far is a major case of swap anxiety!  Those little beauties are EXTRAS, people!  Shocked The main event may just kill me! LOL!

11/24/15- opened another extra.  The swap anxiety is rising.



12/1/15- I think this might have to be the last extra I open before the main event.  Otherwise the swap anxiety may end me...

The front:


The back:


Inside:


So I opened another extra and it's SO AWESOME!




Day 1: My first "official" gift of the swap was a gift for every member of my family!  Each of these have a tag attached, describing their singular attributes.  And Onyxnox must have done some major stalking coz it was very clear who each of these is for!


Day 2: Onyxnox is a pro with resin and I've always been kind of in awe of the fun things she produces with it, so I'm delighted to have some resin of my own now to play with!! She even included hardware!  Grin Cheesy Kiss



Day 3: I am a voracious reader and Onyxnox found this on my pinterest, but made it so much prettier than I could have!  I love, love, LOVE the colors and textures on this:



Day 4:  Onyxnox continues to blow me away!  She made me these absolutely stunning ornaments and I FREAKING LOVE THEM!  My tree is all blue, silver and gold, so they won't be going on it - BUT - I will be making them into a garland!  They will get their very own well-deserved focus that way!  I'll post a pic of it once it's hanging up!



Each one of them is just a smidge different from the others, but here's a closeup of one, so you can see more clearly how amazingly awesome they are!



Ok, as promised, a pic of the garland (I think I may end up redoing it, as I feel that the ornaments might be too close together...)



Day 4: Toys!!!!  Actually, tools for playing with clay, and I'm reeeeeally looking forward to getting up to my elbows in clay with these little beauties...



Day 5: I gasped aloud when I saw these.  Stunningly beautiful, the photo doesn't do them justice.



And on my tree, next to one of the hats she made me...



Day 6: Straight off my pinterest!!  SOOOOO digging this arm candy!  



Day 7: Gorgeous steampunk ornaments!!


And a closeup for detail:


Day 8: Beautiful and simple notecards WITH a handcarved stamp!!  Loving the colors she chose!  



Day 9: BLEW ME AWAY!  Shocked  I kept turning this over and over in my hands, just taking in all of the AMAZING and stunning details!  I know Onyxnox intended this for me to "Make Art", but honestly, it's so pretty that I will have to force myself to dirty up the inside!  Thank you so much, I love this so much!







Yes, even the endpapers she added are gorgeous!

Day 11:  Stunning, stunning steampunk compact!  It has pretty little rhinestones embedded in the gorgeous texture, the colors are perfect....*swoon*




Day 12: A fabulous embossed metal mini art journal!  Oh, how I love this!




Audania1, thank you for organizing this wonderful swap, and thanks to Onyxnox for being a dream partner!

Nice Grimm! Love the blocks. Quilting baffles me...

Ditto!  But quilting is one of those things that I'm itching to try one day.  I mean, REAL quilting, with little scrappy blocks like that.  I've done easy peasy patchwork and baby quilts but it's a far cry from that!

I made a surprise for my crafty bestie Gozer for her Christmas/ birthday package this year.  She isn't on this thread so I'm going to be brazen and just post it:

I wonder how many people nowadays have no idea what that symbol is, in the middle of the word "Core"... isn't it funny how quickly some things become obsolete?

I did a little baking on Sunday- cinnamon rolls!  Made from scratch, I was so proud of myself!  And I added some essential oil to the wet ingredients when I was making the dough... oh, it was soooooo goooood!!!  That's one of the reasons I like doTerra's oils, they are so pure that most are edible.  Often the ones you buy at the health food stores are not.

Wow, some really awesome projects lately!

Love the bathroom makeover - I'm looking forward to starting mine... someday!  Roll Eyes

The inchie house is really cool, and so are those hand cookies!  

I got a wild hair yesterday and did a little baking...

Project Name: Essential oil cinnamon rolls
Brief Description: I've been "into" essential oils for a couple of years now, but I've never heard of anyone putting any into bread items.  I added Citrus Bliss essential oil blend to the wet ingredients for some cinnamon rolls yesterday (made from scratch - I was so proud of myself), and I have to say it was a good call!

LOVE the Halloween cards and all the Skellington stuff!  Great job with the paintbrush, Smeddley!

And the bat ninnis are adorable!

The wand is lovely, and the planetary TM patch is so unique!  Love the buttons!

Project Name: Grim Reaper cards
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I made these for Onyxnox in the 12 Days of Christmas swap.  I don't think she's following this board so I'm taking a chance and posting them.  
This project involved lots of steps.  1) Draw the Grim Reaper. 2) Use my handy-dandy light box (Thanks, gozer!!  Cheesy) to trace him and add new details. 3) Repeat step 2, three more times. 4) Color all the little Grimmies with markers 5) Copy the little guys onto card stock 6) cut the card stock to a size that will fit the envelopes 7) fold.

I made 3 of each for 12 total.  My fave is the one with the lights on his sickle.  Mistletoe is hanging from the sickle of the guy next to him, it's hard to see in the pic - and he's been kissed on the cheek! awww....  Smiley

Project Name: Lace skirt
Project Link:
Brief Description: I've been wanting to make myself a lace skirt for quite some time now, and have had the fabric sitting my stash for about 2 years.  Yesterday I finally took the time to just do it, already!  It's just a couple of simple tube skirts sewn together, and nipped in at the waist a bit to cut down on the bulk there (goodness knows I have enough of it already  Grin).  The second photo shows the length of the skirt better.   ('Scuse the unmade bed in the background- my son's room is the only one with a full length mirror- because it was his sister's room before she moved out  Roll Eyes)  There are a lot of flowers featured in Indian art, and the lace on the skirt incorporates lots of flowers.

Wow!  So much awesomeness!  Pinokeeo- you have made so many lovely things for your wedding!  The gourd is so beautiful and I freaking LOVE the cedar cone roses.  Perfect idea for floral arrangements- with feathers, no less!  I hope you will be kind enough to share a few pics of your big day with us.

That1girl, you are so prolific!  It seems like every time I come on here, you've posted umpteen new projects!   Grin

The baby blanket is so pretty - I hope it will go to someone who will appreciate all the love that went into its creation.

Yummy looking donuts, Lindy!  I gain weight just looking at the food pics you post, girl!

Epic ugly sweater, SheepBlue!  I think someday I'd like to have an ugly Christmas sweater party - I think it would be hysterical!

I've been doing a lot of crafting lately, but it's mostly for the 12 Days of Christmas swap, so I'll have to post up later.  I did a count yesterday of what I've already made for my partner, and I only have 3 items to go!  Shocked  I didn't realize I had done so much already!

I did, however, make myself a skirt yesterday.  I've been wanting a lace skirt for a while now and I finally took the time yesterday.  It's just a couple of simple tube skirts (nipped in a little at the waist to avoid extra bulk there) sewn together:



This pic shows the unusual length better.  I quite like it!
