I received from SheridanLA today - meet Miss Lady.

Another shot on a different background:

She's flapper-ific with a head band, beads and sequined heart pin:

The pin:

With her lacy dress and headband, she's just adorable. Thanks so much!

I received the coolest altered matchbox from cabaute. All the candy cushioned the package  - yum!

It's Santa's sleigh with a surprise, well, 2 surprises:

The first surprise is that there are 2 matchboxes - one large and one small.

I didn't see the second surprise until I emptied out the drawers of all the little goodies (thanks!)

Buddy the Elf hiding in the small drawer!

All of the goodies included:

Thanks so much for a fun and thoughtful and generous matchbox. Happy New Year!

Found it.

I know it's hard to see but it's the only one I uploaded to iPhoto. There were hundreds of flags - all with messages of love and hope.

I sent a Yule Princess to aluraceleste - she's in the middle of sudden relocation for work and hasn't had time to post a photo. Disclaimer - My apartment is sooooooo dark. How dark is it? It is so dark that I thought the fabric was green and red (it's blue and pink) and the yarn was meant to be brown and green. The brown turned out to be purple when I brought it to work to photograph and send out. I offered to remake but Jennifer said send it anyway.

That's a bird milagro that I dyed/stained with alcohol ink - it's not a cross, but shaped like one.

I sent two other ornaments - using up a bunch of scrapbook-y things I have:

Details of swap:

We will be crafting and sending one winter-themed Ninni with one partner. You can discuss with your partner the size of the Ninni - some folks make it about 8.5 " x 11", the size of a piece of copy paper. And some like to make small ones and send more than one. This swap is for one Ninni but you are free to swap more if your partner agrees.

EDIT: I changed the date of the last day of sign-ups. This swap will close at noon (PST) on Sunday 12/14/14 just because I have a very busy week starting 12/15/14 - thanks for understanding.

The Ninni pattern:


You are free to reinterpret the pattern to make it your own - see below for some examples of Ninnis that are more than a Ninni! But the little monster should be recognizable as a Ninni.





And here are some past galleries of Ninni-insanity!

I received a cute felt hot chocolate-loving dotee from aluraceleste.

It's just perfect from my collection - thanks so much, Jennifer.

I know who sent it but let's see if she reveals herself....

I received my second piece from jenleahlynn - Watercolor and colored pencils with a Dr. Who quote.

She used salt on the watercolor so the background is speckled. The quote is "We are all stories in the end. Just make it a good one." 

And I'm sorry the pic is so bad - it's late and dark and rainy and I wanted to post as soon as I could. So please feel free to post another photo, Jennifer, and thanks so much for swapping.

9  Old School Pocket Book - my first Bind-it-All book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Smmarrt on: November 12, 2014 11:16:50 PM

My first completed book - I bought the Zutter Bind-it-All to enable my scatterbrained self to finish some of the book projects I've started. So with minimal video and print tutorial absorption, I slapped this together tonight.

It's 4" x 6" chipboard covered in scrapbook paper - it's also my first time using Yes Paste. I love it - great for paper projects.

Obviously, I didn't measure my cut pieces all that well so there are several sizes. The book is just over one-half inch thick, with a mix of brown craft paper and kids' watercolor paper.

I have 4 more sets of covers completed - just need to stay at school and cut more pages. I also have some covers made from cracker boxes and cereal boxes - I'm leaving the fronts of the covers naked and just adding scrapbook paper or card stock to inside covers to make the covers more sturdy.

Guess what everyone's getting in their stockings this year?

Whoo hoo! I received one day early - go USPS!

A lovely mixed-media piece by artsycandice. It has a twig, fabric, tatting and tassels.

to change your image viewing settings please click here

The funny thing about the tatting - I often buy bags of yarn and crochet yarn at the thrift store to use with my preschoolers and for my own crafting. There was a small sample of this exact same pattern in one of my bags and I have been saving it for something special. So it's just perfect, thanks Candice!
