The button bracelet made it to its destination mostly intact. Thanks!

Sorry mamarose! this is late, but I kept forgetting to post these!

I got the a needlebook! I've been wanting one of these and my partner was awesome enough to make me one!



and she was sweet enough to include a few needles!



I love it. I've been making use of it. it's made my husband happy to not find my needles in places they shouldn't be.

So here she is!!!



This lovely little dolly is my offering for the raffle. I made her slightly different from the other so all my dolls can be ooak XD I went with the same color scheme as before because it came out so pretty last time. Now I get to go make something else!

6  Mermaid Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Linakins on: May 19, 2014 12:00:06 PM
So here's my second attempt at an art doll.


This one was made for Crysoleil for the Random Swap. She's more sculpture than art doll, but she looks more dolly like so I put her here.

I have never sculpted before really. I got the idea of this doll from here: http://ateliersusanatavares.blogspot.com/2012/09/mermaid-art-doll.html

Mine is a cartooney version of that because I just can't do that ugly pretty art thing that so many talented people can.

Here's the back of her


Sh's made from a mixture of salt clay and paper clay. She's rather heafty, but I wanted her to have some weight so it would hold up on travel.

I painted her with arcylics and varnished her



Her starfish is also made from salt clay



And her gorgeous hair is made from silky soft merino wool roving.

I also made her stand by hand using a plaque base and some dowel I bought at Hobby Lobby. I drilled, cut, sanded,colored, and lacquered everything myself! '



She is cartoony, but I like the way she came out. I think she'd make a sweet addition for grown ups and little girls.

Anyway, let me know what you think. Feedback and constructive critiques are wanted and welcome!

I got the most amazing swap package from Crysoleil!!!!

First there's this:



Yes its a rainbow tutu.

Be jealous.... I'll wait.



I'm wearing my tutu right now. I think it shall be part of my daily wear. No Joke. I totally get why my 5 year old wants to wear tutus all the time. Also, the other runners at Electric Run are going to be so jelly that no one made them a rainbow tutu XD




IT'S PUPPYCAT AHHHHHHH!!!!!!
If you don't know who puppycat it, shame on you and educate yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOG_UtLxh58
My children are going to fight me for puppycat. Seriously. Best swap gift ever! (Right after the tutu I'm never removing) XD

Then there's my craftster scout achievement badge sash:

My badges are gonna feel like royalty on this thing. It's silky!!! And so cute!!!!

And then there's pocket bunny!



She's the sweetest little ami. I love her. She's sitting on my desk right now XD

And these rad things are pontail falls

I've never worn falls before but I might have to give them a shot cos these are just too cute!

And then there's supplies!!!!


Hello kitty stickers and homemade crayon hearts ( my five year old says thank you for these!)

And there's hello kitty packing tape for all my future swap packages

AND the most darling mushroom beads. I don't even know where to start with these. I want to make pins and bracelets and all sorts of shizz with them. I love them.

My swap partner totally got me XD Amazing!!! Seriously! I lvoe everything!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Crysoleil!

Thinking about offering an art doll would anyone be interested in something like that? Here's two examples of my works:






Let me know if either of these might be something anyone wants and which one people are more interested in, and I'll get to making a real listing for this Smiley

Since my partner said she got the packcage, and I would love to close up shop on this swap I'm going to post my pictures of my stuff for her.

I swapped with Gala_Apples. She wanted me to make her a felt food playset for her nephews, so this is what I made.



So normally I like to make cute sweets from felt, but she wanted healthy foods, so I did my best. I love the recycle shopping bag.



There's bowtie pasta, sausage links, a tomato and an orange



A carton of milk, turkey leg, loaf of bread and an eggplant



I needle felted the asparagus and the strawberries, there's also a crookneck squash

I haven't heard from her how she liked them, but hopefully they met her standards.
