11  I love NINNIs! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: August 26, 2016 06:48:36 AM
I love these little Ninni swaps. They are so cute and easy to make and fun. Simply fun. Here's the gallery http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=449843.0

My partner loves Nancy Drew, so what better than a Ninni Drew, Nancy's little sister. She has a few of her sister's books, and Nancy's old flashlight and magnifying glass.

The props were made out of paper clay and painted. The lens is a large flat glass marble thingy and the lens of the flashlight is a small jiggly eye. The books were simply printed out old covers.

The pleated skirt was the hardest. I had not made little pleats since my DD was just a little thing (she's in her 30's now). But I managed, it's a bit wonky, but looks good on Ninni. I made the back plain, no costume/embellishments...is that cheating? And the bag was repurposed from another doll I received in a swap. My friends niece co-opted the doll and the bag stayed behind. Sometimes you just have to let them find their own home.

craftADDchick has had a busy life lately and I agreed to post the pic of the Ninni she has received.

Ninni Drew is the younger sister of Nancy and want's to follow in big sis' footsteps. She's got copies of all the books and Nancy's old flashlight and magnifying glass...a little battered....but serviceable.

I've completely lost track of who has received my cards. How do you do it? It's hard enough keeping track of received cards. I can't imagine what the moderators are going through. You lovely moderators are super heros!

Ack! That gremlin episode freaked me for years when I was little. I couldn't look out windows at night. I never knew it was William Shatner. I'll have to watch it again some day.

My cards are all the same, but slightly different. I'm not sure I could handle a swap like this more than once a year. I can't imagine writing out the backs on 27 cards by hand. I bow to your skill and perseverance. I did enjoy working out how to create so many cards and not go crazy and still be creative and fun. And finish another swap with the same deadline. Why oh why do they clump?

And I randomized as much as possible, trying not to play favorites. And the teaser envelopes.

This is one lovely ATC Month. Beautiful ATC's abound. I too received a few days ago, but have been battling odd stabbing head pains...not fun. My doctor and I are stumped at this point.

I received from helcura, a lovely Pseudatteria leopardina moth. She's beautiful

And from Lacy "the Glaistig" She has iridescent pearls and glittery flowers and the hottest horns! Another beautiful card.

I cut a stamp of my Craftster image, played with my gelli plate and cut out cards, made a word cloud in Illustrator and printed it out. Both the stamp and the trim on the back were smaller than the gelli printed base cards so minor mismatches did not show. I made way more fronts than I needed, so if some go missing, I am ready.

I received cards from emilywilde...not one, but two!

The first is on my strange picnic theme....I am never going on a space picnic without martinis! Love it!

And because I waxed nostalgic over the Portland, OR card, she sent me this....it is a beautiful city despite the rain.

Both Beautifulsoul and emilywilde had teapots as a theme along with the one I had chosen. I became intrigued by doing the same image, but with different fabrics to meet two different themes. The results are fun, similar but so different.

For my summer drinks theme, I received a refreshing and sparkling jar of LEMONADE! My favorite of non-alcoholic summer drinks. It has a 3D raised sign and sparkling jewels. And it's only 10 cents! This is from beautifulsoul. Thank you, this makes me thirsty.
