31  Re: OTT October Holidays Edition 3 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by irid3sc3nt on: October 29, 2011 07:43:45 PM
Haroldlovesmaude asked me to post a photo of the OTT I sent to her.

I sent her Halloween Treats stitch markers.  Clockwise from top:  wrapped mini chocolate (based on Hershey's bars), popcorn ball (I used to receive these as a kid from my neighbor), candy corn, black gumdrop with sugar crystals and wrapped taffy.

Here is what hazelly sent to me:

It's a teensy-weensy doily!  Look at all of those tiny stitches she had to make!  She went to thirteen stores to try to find orange thread, but none of them had it.  I think it is beautiful.  I think that this year I will have it sitting out, but next year I'll craft a nice frame for it so I can have it hanging up.

Thank you, hazelly!

Here is the chunky house that I sent to TheSavoyTruffle, since she asked me to post a photo.

The inspiration for this chunky house was a "Greetings from..." postcard.  TheSavoyTruffle really liked the heads of Easter Island so I thought "what if they were having a party?"  The black crepe paper is supposed to be masks on their faces, but my husband says it doesn't translate like that.

I received my last house from goatgoddess.

It has a toad on it!  I love toadies.  Thank you, goatgoddess!

All the houses are now sitting on the window ledge; they look great there!

I also received from Killam Creative today.

I love the witch photo and I was tickled that she used it in constructing my house.  The detail diagonal shot is so you can see some of the 3-D elements.  The witches have pop tabs behind them, the brick background is embossed, the black trim is embossed and the roses& leaves really pop out of the trees.

Thank you, Killam Creative!

I received from TheSavoyTruffle today.  Here is the house.

A little monacle was added to the top pumpkin on the front and the middle one has a little mustache!  It made me chuckle when I saw it.  I'm not sure which side I like better, actually.  It may be one that I occasionally flip.

Thank you, TheSavoyTruffle!

I was away from home for a week and I came back yesterday to find my package from AlwaysInspired.
Prepare to Pin It.

My very own one-of-a-kind prim.  It's a skelly moon man!  He has a little top hat and a bat!

Detail of the cute lil bat.

I took a picture from the side so you can kind of see the stitching.  This isn't flat by any means, it was (looks like) handstitched around each element.

I also received original artwork in a pretty frame!

Here's a closeup of just the artwork.  Is it watercolor?  It has some subtle shading around the cat and the moon.  I like their grins.

Thank you, Deana! Kiss

Here is my Chunky House from DanniQuee.

The front

The back



My favorite part is the buttons.  I just love buttons and they give the overall composition an older feeling. 

Thank you, Danni!

Details of Swap
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October (Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.)! Your five themes should be related to these.

In this swap, participants will have one partner.  Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes.  For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament.  Each tiny thing should measure 4 inches by 4 inches or smaller.  This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.

AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know.  I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partners to have them post)

Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings=tiny ---- necklace, earrings and bracelet set=NOT tiny
ATC=tiny ---  8x10 drawing=NOT tiny
change purse=tiny --- clutch purse=NOT tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions; if the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay. If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!
