YAY! Pioneer9 received from moi. I will be posting the pictures now that the package safely arrived. Pioneer9 gave me an awesome opportunity to make a poppet! I never ever would have made one if I didn't have a partner that wanted one, and it was fun for sure. However, I did read up lots on them first and it said woven material and fabric=the devil. Wow... I couldn't agree more. To my misfortune I have to travel at least an hour and a half to hit a JoAnne's so I have to settle for a local place that has fabric coming and going and nothings for sure of what you'll be able to get. Annnyway...
Pioneer9 said a recent obsession was Farscape. I did some research, got sucked into some episodes of it on Netflix, and determined I really like the look of Chiana, a streetsmart, and likeable I will add, character.
This HAD to be my poppet inspiration!!
The second item I included I wanted to combine things we have in common: 1) Cold Winters 2) Love of purple So I made up some recycled sweater mittens, which are the best and warmest mittens out there!
Today there was a surprise! From... drumroll... moxiepurple! Oh my, it was an absolutely delightful and gorgeous package, and I am so so happy
Here's my group shot:
Incredible, right? Now my crochet skills are pretty novice, and so I am so excited over crochet goodies, this owl eye mask is swoon worthy, I love love it! I am god-awful at taking my own picture, nevermind when there's something over my face, so this was the best I could do.
and that gorgeous purple and grey little number you see? Only the most perfectly color combo-ed cowl/scarf on the planet. it's lacy-like and truly beautiful.
I had t-shirt yarn... soooooo excited to use it, and that adorable glass birdhouse is the smae shade of purple as my craft room, so guess where that's going:)
moxiepurple, thank you to the moon and back! You're wonderful!
These are all stunning! I am about to add to the awesomeness. I was very lucky to have Interrobam as a partner, she did such a gorgeous job, and I cannot wait to stitch up a small pouch, or wallet to affix these too, however they would look amazing on my fridge also, decisions! She sent along a note card that was drawn up by hers truly, and it incorporated yet a third theme of mine as pin ups, and it truly deserved it's own gallery unveil, so here it be!
I have massive love for hummingbirds, this is GORGEOUS!!
She took off with my nature theme too! ( I know, I'm super lucky!!) It's a leaf! but no, look closer, there's a fox!! a perfectly stitched adorable fox! and in its mouth? Another teeny tiny leaf!! Eeeeee
My camera's craptastic and it can't capture the perfect teeny tiny details, which is a sad thing, I love love love these, thank you again Interrobam, and your 2nd badge is 3/4 complete, and I'll be sending very soon!
So it may not be physical crafting objects,although those are all ahh mazing, so many great pieces in here. I got this last week,and Ive wanted it for years! It's art, and it''s helped inspire alot for me:
I received a most beautiful package from Elameno a couple of days ago! I'm in love<3 She expertly carved me a stamp, I LOVE LOVE LOVE hummingbirds, and this is gorgeous. I waited a couple days to post in hopes of finding a sufficient ink pad, however the ones I have dried up, and I hadn't made it to grab more yet. Not only that, but Elameno has a love of Disney, and Tink's my personal fave, so I got an adorable leaf shaped pendant, with a beautiful tinkerbell layering over it, It's wonderful! Thank you so much, Elameno, and Iam hoping your package makes it shortly:)
I received not one but TWO awesome crochet swiffer mop covers from the fabulous craftaddiction! They work great and my wallet thanks you, I'm a constant floor sweeping weirdo, so these are practical, and MUCH prettier than the disposable counter part. here's a closeup of the green:
My matchbox from alwaysinmyroom was waiting quietly in my mailbox today, waiting to take my breath away.
Gorgeous, right? I love love the face, and that acorn? It;s felted beneath its cap, beautiful work! To give a bit of back story, alwaysinmyroom had spent two nights lost in the woods as a child, and I adore the fact she incorporated her experience into this piece, because I was intrigued by her experience. The layered paper is perfect. Then I opened it, and found this
Well it's the back of the drawer, but how awesome! A very creepy, but super majestic owl. Inside the actual drawer was this
an itty bitty crazily detailed mini book, and what's inside that you ask?
each tiny page had a snippet of description from her lost in the woods expedition. Those were 2 of my favorites.
and this on the inside as well
There was certainly no wasted space on this little treasure. Linda, I can't thank you enough, this is beautiful, and I love how personal it is, most meaningful swap yet, thank you bunches !
YAY! It was my first day back to work from my mini vacation, and I arrived home to amazing spoilage from KodaNRoxyDogs!! Since I had a group of days off I had consumed massive amounts of coffee and tea since it was constantly available (not so much at work) I had the classic lack of caffeine headache. This was a magical sight to say the least.
I wasted no time hanging it on my pantry door in my kitchen
she took my love of nature themes and colors and ran with it:) look at the gorgeous pin detail.
The wreath itself had a beautiful leaf pattern, I am looking for a similar design for some kitchen updates so this is superbly perfect!
and of course a MASSIVE stash of tea *passion is my favorite too, and I had forgotten about it for a little while, so this is MUCH appreciated, I will have to take your tip on adding it to lemonade....yum!
Thank you Kristin, this was fantastic, you're certainly a wonderful lady!! <3
