71  Pinhead in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by La Chapa on: February 16, 2014 09:53:46 PM
Last year I was on a Hellraiser kick for a couple of months.  I watched all the movies (although I only recommend the first 2) in sequence and even developed a very disturbing crush on Pinhead.  I still can't explain that one!  Anyway, this is the result of my short-lived obsession.  I entered him in the Summer Nerd Games, but neglected to give him his own topic post.






Thanks for looking!

vincentvanbuck, I totally feel the same way!  Although I do still have artist anxiety with every card I send, I just do my best and cross my fingers that the recipient will appreciate my 'charming' (as I like to describe poorly done art that had a lot of effort put into it) work.   Grin  Plus, the bonus is that we get to collect art from all these wonderfully talented artists!  Love your HP card btw.


Case in point (about collecting awesome artists work),  I received this awesome atc from KittyHerman!  She chose artists choice, but it's exactly what I would have wanted if I had know that I wanted it!  It's Slimer!  I grew up on these movies and cartoons, and they have a huge amount of nostalgia for me.  Mostly it reminds me of my little brother who passed away over 10 years ago.  Thanks KittyHerman, I love this more than you ever could have imagined!


Could this be the start of a series?  Hmmm....

What!?  That carousel rocks!  My_RubySlippers, please give it its own project post, so I can officially 'rock it!'   Wink

I received these two adorable atcs from nisfornevile for my bees theme.


Could that bee get any cuter!?

75  Octo-puss in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by La Chapa on: February 09, 2014 09:57:08 AM
Hey all!
After making the Merbunny, I had this idea that I was going to make all sorts of land/sea creature hybrids.  Unfortunately, I only got as far as this second one.  I made this fella last summer.  Posting him does have me thinking of picking this series back up.  Maybe even actually doing my own patterns for them.   Grin  Anyway, the pattern for this one is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/octopussy-3  This is NOT my pattern, I'm just sharing in case someone would like to make their own octopuss Smiley

Oh, I did eventually add the suction cup parts with some fabric puff paint, but I forgot to take pictures. Doh!

76  Hobbit hole necklace in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by La Chapa on: February 09, 2014 09:06:28 AM
Hey folks!
I recently made this necklace for My_RubySlippers, in the OT literary thing and a used paperback swap.  It's Bilbo Baggins' Hobbit hole from the Lord of the Rings / Hobbit movies.  I tried my hand at poly clay for the first time about a year ago, and it became obvious to me that this was a tricky medium at which I had zero talent.  So, I watched a bunch of tutorials on youtube to see if I could learn a few tricks.  Although I still have a looong way to go to reach the level of "skilled", I'm quite happy with the progress that I made with this piece.  It was inspired by these http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=361065.0#axzz2sqJVTm2J Fairy doors by azreno, but of course not nearly as good.   Wink



...the backside




...Thanks for checking it out!

That is a lovley flower atc!  I received these lovelies today:

From ale0005, for my rabbits theme, this cutie pie!


He's washing his face!  That has to be the cutest thing that rabbits do!

From helcura for my Famous Monster ABCs series, this great addition!


I love her!

And last, but not least, a botanical illlustration by rockingbearranch, to quench my thirst for geeky natural science stuff!


The contrast on the original is much better, but my camera phone was really washing this one out - sorry rbr!

Thanks ladies for my new lovelies!!

I received today from My_RubySlippers!

She sent me "The Historian", and made me a little Edgar Allan Poe amigurumi doll, complete with raven, tell-tale heart, and red death's mask!  I love him so much!  Poe is one of my top, top fave authors.  Thanks a million-billion My_RubySlippers!

jillybeans: What a lucky baby!

MamaTrader: That is awesome!  I'll have to try that someday!

My_RubySlippers...strikes again!  Amazing!

Mostly Harmless:  after that comment, I quickly pulled out the atc you sent me and sniffed it.  Heaven!  Oh it smells wonderful!  I had no idea you had painted it with coffee.  I think it shouldn't mold as it is completely crispy dry, and my understanding is that mold needs moisture.  Plus, I'm in southern California, which if you don't know, is a dry, dry desert. Wreaks havoc on my skin!


...AND, here's my atc from My_RubySlippers for my Famous Monsters ABCs series:



at first I thought it was a jaberwocky, but I guess it's a jersey devil!  I had never heard of this before and had to look it up.  I can't believe there are cryptids that I've never heard of!  Thanks RubySlippers for the atc and the monster lesson!   Wink

I love the doodle octopus!  And the pickle is hilarious!

I received to more packages of fun today:

From Kwality, it's "Brice is allergic to bees!"  Oh poor Brice!  Is it wrong that I get so much joy from his terrified expression?



AND, for my cabinet of curiosities theme, I got this baby from rockingbearranch...



A fold out folder card with a variety of gorgeous feathers to arrange as I wish! How cool is that!?



I'm totally going to frame this and add it to my "curiosities" wall.  I'm thinking about labeling each feather (with rockingbearranch's help of course) because that's the type of nerd I am.   Grin

Thanks ladies!!
