1  Re: Fall Dotee Swap GALLERY - Send outs September 22, 2014 in The Swap Gallery by La Chapa on: September 14, 2014 03:11:01 PM
See, I knew that Ludi would come up with some interesting twist to the traditional dotee!  I received mine as well, and it is in my opinion equally as fabulous as artsycandice's. 

although my picture is not so fabulous because you can't really see the wonderful detail


I absolutely love this piece!  The way she did the root-like legs with all the little tendrils, fabulous!  There is so much energy in Ludi's stitching that I love to just follow the movement with my eyes.  Thank you Ludi!

I can't wait to see Smmarrt's!

Hey folks, I wanted to share what I made for mrraawwr.  Since she received a while back I figured it would be ok to go ahead and post for her.  I hope you don't mind mrraawwr!

I sent her a painted wooden plaque and some polymer clay piranha plant earrings that she had pinned.

Hey everyone! I received this gorgeous, gorgeous beaded necklace from Anna.  Green is my absolute, hands down favorite color and this is perfect.  I must admit that I am so in love with these little necklaces that Anna makes.  They look like they take forever!  And all those fiddly little beads!  I don't know how you do it Anna, but keep it up!  Wink  Thank you so much!  And here it is with a lovely postcard...


You can't really tell because the picture is too dark, but the beads are iridescent!  Pretty!

LOVE that owl!  The backside totally rocks, and I'm so in love with artsycandice's printmaking.  It makes me want to bust out the old woodblock carving tools from my old college days.  Anyway, as promised (although, being on the West coast, it's probably already morning the next day to most of you) pictures!   

I received this beautiful dotee and card from artsycandice.





She has such a beautiful face!  I love it so much, I'm speechless!  In fact, I know this is a major faux pas, but I just can't resist linking to this picture I took  https://www.etsy.com/listing/199064627/treescape-photography-treeline-and-moon?  It's like our minds are linked or something!    Moderators: delete if you must, but you can't deny how neat this is!

7  Monster Poof in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by La Chapa on: August 05, 2014 11:43:04 PM
I made this little fella for Cryssoleil in the monster swap a while back.  I just made him up, and I envisioned him as some little poofy creature that lives in hollow trees, and root clusters and such.  I've been wanting to make myself a little village of them because I think it's so cute.

8  Freeform cross body bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by La Chapa on: August 05, 2014 03:59:24 PM
I made this cross body bag for Acadian Driftwood in the Enchanted Forest and Woodland Creature swap.  I wanted to find something to make where I could use some of my shaping skills from all the amigurumi making that I've done, but that would be a bit more useful.  It's mostly just scrumbling in different textured yarns and using different stitches.  I added some mushrooms and dangly plant bits to tie it into the theme (mushrooms was one of her themes.)  I busted out the sewing machine for the first time in over 10 years, and basically relearned the basics, VERY basic basics, in order to sew in a liner.  I toyed with the idea of adding a flap and button closure, or a zipper, but everything I was doing was so new to me that I decided not to freak myself out by over-complicating it.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I think it's pretty good for a first attempt.  Now, I want to make more!  Plus, I've been inspired to brave other projects where sewing is involved.

And isn't this just the most adorable carnivorous plant you've ever seen?  But watch out! He bites!

Well, we have 5 swappers so far!  Hopefully we get at least one more so that we have a nice even number!  If you are on the fence, perhaps I can convince you by promising to give feedback as soon as your package arrives, and by reminding you that we're only swapping for 1 or 2 items!  That's easy peasy pumpkin squeezy!  Cheesy

While we count down the days until I can assign partners, I thought I'd post a bit of inspiration!  All images are preceded by their Pinterest link in order to give proper credit.  Smiley

If these were maryjanes, I'd be all over them!

How cool is this corpse flower brooch!?

And THIS! Ok, so it doesn't have a carnivorous plant on it, but you see it right?  Could so be one!
