1  Re: Stitch Marker Swap Round 2 - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ShannonMN on: June 02, 2013 01:08:03 AM
I received my stitch markers from koalascout on Friday and I'm just now posting. I'm sorry about that. Life's been crazy.

Anyhoo, I received a great package!

First, she made me a bunch of stitch markers with smiley faces on them (I LOVE SMILEY FACES!!!! Smiley ) and one with a row counter on it. Sorry the row counter isn't facing up. It's really difficult to get all the smiley faces and everything facing up for the pictures. Smiley


A row counting bracelet!


And stitch markers that spell out my name. Smiley


Thank you SOO much!!!

Dfabbric sent me a beautiful top hat last week and I've been awful about getting the pictures up and getting hers sent out. It's beautiful and these photos don't do it justice, so dfabbric, if you have better pics please feel free to post them.

I said I like steampunk as a theme and purple is my favorite color and this amazing piece is what I got!





I LOVE the veil on it, too!!

Thank you SO MUCH!!!!

3  My Makeup Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ShannonMN on: January 09, 2013 02:29:00 AM
Recently, I made (with the help of my husband) a magnetic makeup board for our bathroom. I'm trying to get the clutter off the countertops and it seems to be working. I found the idea on Pinterest. I bought a frame at Michael's when they were on sale and my husband bought the steel sheet from Home Depot and cut it down to size. Then I used a fat quarter I bought at Joann's and glued the circular craft magnets to the back of my makeup tins. I plan to
add some magnets to some pen holders I have and put my brushes in them.

Here's the link to the tute.

And my magnetic makeup board!


What do you think? Smiley

Thanks for looking!

4  A bunch of t-shirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ShannonMN on: December 16, 2012 06:32:22 PM
I recently made a few t-shirts for my sister. She's an actress and loves the movie, Goonies.

First of all, a Goonies t-shirt. I used reverse applique with a black t-shirt and white knit fabric.



Second, a white floral t-shirt inspired by The Pleated Poppy Blog. Here's the direct link to the tutorial. http://thepleatedpoppy.com/2009/11/gettin-crafty/



And last, but definitely not least - a Theater Hierarchy t-shirt inspired by an episode of Family Guy, called "From Method to Madness." This t-shirt was painted using freezer paper stencils. For some reason my stencil wouldn't remain adhered to the t-shirt as well as in the past and so the paint smudged a little and it gave a bit of a true stencil effect.



Thanks for looking!

5  Belle Ruffle Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by ShannonMN on: September 23, 2012 01:08:52 AM
I recently knitted these Belle Ruffle Gloves for the Once Upon A Time Swap. The pattern is by Veronica O'Neil and is available on Ravelry. I used some yarn from my stash. I believe the black is Knit Picks Shine Sport in Black and the purple is Knit Picks Cotlin in Lilac. I had ordered a bunch of the Cotlin Lilac for a shawl for one of my bridesmaids in my wedding, but the shade of purple was off, so I'm finding new uses for the multiple skeins I have. Smiley

What do you think of them?


Thanks for looking!

6  Re: Once Upon A Time Swap Gallery in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by ShannonMN on: September 16, 2012 03:32:11 PM
Hello! I received my swap package from Misskohaku on Friday and am just now able to post the pics.

She sent along some chocolate covered macadamia nuts all the way from Hawaii. (I've always wanted to go and I've only been to the Honolulu airport.  Tongue )


She also sent along an embroidery hoop with a quote from Astrid.


And a fabric bookmark and the book, The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm. I have been wanting this book for a long time.


And probably my favorite item, little key earrings. I put these on immediately after opening the box. Smiley


Thank you so much for everything, Misskohaku!

I received my hoop from spidermom on Friday and just now am able to post a pic. She embroidered one of my absolute favorite quotes from the tv show, Friends. This will definitely be hanging up in my studio and I will laugh every time I look at it. She also sent along a fat quarter of the fabric behind it. I LOVE fabric. Smiley



Thank you so much, spidermom! I LOVE IT!

I received from Calabaza today!!!!

She made me a great utensil roll and cloth napkin!


A bento box strap with an apple button on it and sauce containers!


A silicone cake mold, tiny apple paper puncher, and bread sandwich maker!


And tiny cookie cutters! These are great! I have found it so difficult to find small cookie cutters, especially ones that aren't Christmasy so these are fantastic!


Thank you so much, Calabaza! I love all of it!!!
