I finally got around to making something!

Challenge/Battle/Alert: May Battle Royal
Team/Ninja: Team Monster
Project Geekdom (if any): Monsters!
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy Bonus
Project Name: Pirate Cthulhu charm
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
I've recently fallen in love with polymer clay as a crafting medium, so I thought it would be fun to make myself a charm.  I love The Call of Cthulhu, and I thought Cthulhu would make a great pirate for this challenge since he is after all a sea monster, or rather a monster buried at sea?  Anyway, let's just say that he's closely associated with the sea.  I want to hang it on a chain attached to each of the eye pins, but since the charm is really the crafty part, I figured it was okay to post as is.

I received these wonderful stitch markers from KitttyHerman, and it is sooo funny because we both made each other skulls and snails!  I was hitting myself in the head too, because I made myself extras of all the charms except the skulls. 

Anyway, here they are...

and the snails adorable face...

I think snails are the cutest thing ever!! Excuse my weirdness  Grin

AND, after I photographed then on my porch, I went to put them away and realized that....THEY GLOW IN THE DARK!

I love that they are all unique.  The tiny roses are amazing and must have taken a delicate touch to make!  Thanks KittyHerman I luuuvs them!!    (yes, i like using multiple exclamation marks)

Yay! And here are mine!  Thanks for posting pics for me till I could get some good shots deathbeforedishes  Grin

They are so beautiful & I love Smeddley's too!  Yes, the heart is genius.  And I love the clasps that you used.  I have to ask where you got them as I did not see anything that nice where I bought my clasps.
Thanks again!

I received this great addition to my extinct animals collection:

My first dodo!

Thanks whysteria!  I love dodo's.  They are so bizarre.

AND, I received THREE cards from kosmicgirl.  She did my Famous Monsters ABCs theme and didn't realize that I had already been claimed for the letter "P" until after she made two "P" atcs for me. SO, she then decided to make me ANOTHER atc, this time for the letter "G".  Really I never woulda minded the mistake since I can NEVER have too many monster ATCs, but you won't here me complaining.  Especially since kosmicgirl is such a talented artist!

lol! (kosmicgirl, no worries, I'm not offended.  I think it's great!)

kosmicgirl, thanks for going the extra mile.  I truly feel fortunate!

Whoa! I'm seeing some amazing ATCs!

And here are two more from pilarfarmer for my extinct animals theme:

she claimed me for one but sent TWO!  Thanks Pilar!  I love 'em! I have a soft spot for Mammoths Wink

76  A Nessie hatchling in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by La Chapa on: May 02, 2013 07:28:27 PM
I made this amigurumi for my partner in the One Tiny Monster Swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421152.0#axzz2SBvC5TD7) last month.  The crafted item had to be 3 dimensional, and no larger than 4 inches.  I had a hard time making it small enough to include the traditional long neck and still cute and baby-like, so I decided that sea/loch monsters are most likely hatched with short necks and then undergo a neck growth spurt in their early years. Wink  Anyway, on to pics.

Thanks for looking!

I received this ATC from Doctor Whaddayoudoinghere for my Famous monsters ABCs theme.

It's Pyramid head from Silent Hill!  Now I have to see the movie!  Thanks for the ATC & the movie homework.  (I love movie homework!)  Wink   

I also received this mini gallery piece by blupaisan.

It is her first time working with acrylics!  Can you believe it!?  AND, she did it on a gorgeous piece of birch bark from the Adirondacks!  Blupaisan, you are uber talented!  I may just have to put aside a little section of wall for your ATCs.  Anyway, my son loved it!  Oh, almost forgot to mention: it's called "one-eyed snow wolf" because there is a little hole (perhaps bored by a beetle?) where one of the eyes would be.  If you look closely you can see it (it looks white because of the cover for my scanner showing through.)  Here's a shot of the beautiful barky backside too.

Thanks again!

Um, I can't believe that I'm just now checking the April gallery!  Well, it is great so far & I especially love the naughty dog and the scratchboard puns! 

I received this ATC from OathKeeper for my Walking Dead theme:

So, I'm just wondering, is Daryl everyone's favorite character?  Seriously, because I don't know anyone who doesn't love him the most.  Anyway, thanks OathKeeper, I love it!

I got my tiny monster and he is the cutest thing ever!  I wanted something creepy, cute, and Tim Burtonesque & Staar84 delivered.

This is my little monster coin purse.

I LOVE the fabrics she used, and the one big eye.  Staar84 couldn't have known this (I think) but I collect coin purses!  I just love them for some reason.
Thank you Staar84!  He is perfect, perfect, perfect!

Oh, and he came with a candy in his mouth, which I quickly devoured. Tongue

Yay, for more awesome monsters! 

Well, my partner received over a week ago, so I'm going to go ahead and post what I sent her.



This is my version of a baby Nessie.  I'm a bit jealous of the other Nessie with the long neck, because I just couldn't get mine to be under 4 inches with a neck.  So I decided that this was just a baby and that loch monsters hatch with short necks which later develop into longer necks as they grow.  If that's not convincing enough for you, then feel free to just call it a sea monster.   Grin
