I received my V card from audio-astrophysics on Wednesday but was practically out of the door on my way out of town.  I truly apologize for the long delay in posting.  I'm up in the boondocks with dial up and an ancient comp.  Blech!

I love the little buttons she added.  Thank you for the wonderful card and the papers are awesome!  Great swap!

V is for Vacation!

22  Monster collaboration in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: March 09, 2009 02:59:38 PM
I'm trying to develop my felt skills and wanted to make something. Unfortunately I couldn't think of anything except for the normal old boring stuff. So I decided to invite my niece and nephew to collaborate with me.   I asked them to both draw monsters and told them that I would make them.

It's turning out to be a GREAT exercise for me AND the kids love the one monster I've made so far.  I wasn't sure at first, but the day after I gave my niece her monster she came back to me with MORE monsters! LoL  I swear they are making lists in their heads about what I can make for them next!!!  I would highly recommend doing this with your kids if you're looking to build skills or want to do something fun.  The kids are definitely interested in my process and watch me at times and check in with me on my progress regularly.

This is the drawing my niece did for this exercise. Note the arrows and handwriting in my hand denoting colors that we agreed upon for different parts of the monster.

This is how the monster turned out.

crafty dame told me that it's my partner Luanne did not receive the card I sent to her.   Sad  I'll be starting to work on a new card ASAP..but until then crafty dame also requested I share a picture of my lost card.

T is for Things

I'm really bummed it was lost.  Out of the three it was probably my favorite.  Thanks for being so patient Luanne!

24  Recent swap ATCs - Alphabet and Love/Hate in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by fatewineroses on: February 27, 2009 02:26:23 PM
I wanted to share some ATCs I completed for two swaps recently.  I'm on round two of an Alphabet swap and did the Love/Hate Valentine's swap.  I'm sticking with embroidery for right now as I'm building my skills in embroidery, I'm not into paper crafts right now and I'm still learning to draw.  I can post all but one of my most recent cards and I'm going to try to find the pics of my other alphabet swap cards to post later.

Going into next round. V, W and X. (Still waiting for V to be received as of 4/7/09.)

W is for Wahine (Hand-stitched and watercolor)

X is for Xavier (Hand-stitched)

This round I went with crayon tinting this round.

S is for Snob

T is for Things

Unfortunately the "T is for Things" card was lost in the mail.  This is the replacement card I created.

T is for Thong

U is for Unibrow

You Forever Be In My Heart

You Will Always Be A Part Of Me

I wasn't able to get pictures of my first three cards before I sent, but two of my partners posted pics.

'If you want to call them something, call them sausages or prosciutto' ATC

Dr. Hackenbush ATC

I hope you enjoy my work.

I really have enjoyed this swap.  The cards that were created were awesome and coming up with something myself was fun!  Thanks to everyone!

My last partner hasn't been on in a while so I thought I'd post the card I sent her.  I will say that this card is my favorite so far.  I saw this saying on the top half of a Valentine's card while scoping out the card section one day and this image just popped into my head.  I hope you guys get as much of a giggle out of this as I did.  Wink

Thanks to crafty dame for organizing this!  Muchas Dankas!

I apologize for my delay in posting.  After joining this swap I found myself moving.  I received my U card from boogirl1984 and am just thrilled with it!!!  She sent it in the cutest little dress card!  Thank you SO much boogirl!

This is "Unbroken Heart" by boogirl1984.  The heart is a red velvety paper that is super rich. If you look closely you can see that the stickers are textured.

Thanks again boogirl.  I hope you like the card I send you as much as I loved yours and thanks for being patient! 

HUGE thanks goes to crafty_dame for her organizing and understanding!

I must apologize for the delay in posting.  I'm woefully behind!  Unfortunately I had an unexpected move in the middle of this swap (and another one) which ended up with some of my things that I needed being sent to another place.  Undecided

I have received from Smmarrt!   Just the cutest card!  And she sent me paper goodies!  Which I GREATLY appreciate as I am new to paper crafting!

Thank you SO much for swapping with me Smmarrt!  I hope you like your card when you get it as much as I liked yours!

And a HUGE thanks to crafty_dame for organizing and understanding my situation.

Let's see.  Try this link:

Once you click through you have the option to see the image full screen. 

And if this doesn't work, Google: scarlet begonias, t shirt

Once you hit enter, click on the "images" link.  Google shows you the size of the image.  I found the image at the link from webshots and it is 1280 x 960 - 208k - jpg.  That's pretty big.  It's the biggest one I found.

29  Lucky Tea Towels (Fat and happy with pics) in Needlework: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: January 13, 2009 04:41:06 PM
After the many MANY Christmas projects were completed I decided to work on something for ME. At first I couldn't decide on what to put on them, but after looking through all of my images I decided to go with an Asian theme, focusing on attracting wealth/luck.  I've had a bad run of luck for a while, so it would be nice for some good luck and wealth to come into my life.   I hope you like them!

30  Game inspired tea towels. in Needlework: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: January 04, 2009 12:34:21 PM
I play an online game called Toontown. I'm lucky enough to also have my dd, brother and sister-in-law play as well.  It's turned out to be a wonderful opportunity for family time, even when we live hours away from each other.  That being said, for Christmas I made most of my gifts and I had decided to make tea towels for them but didn't know what their theme was in the kitchen and had the inspired idea to do a Toontown themed set.

Each set is crayon tinted and embroidered.

The first one is one of the bosses in the game. He's the VP and this is what he says when he finds out that the toons have snuck into his factory.  He is lacking detail that I decided would just make him too busy in this medium.  I've included a picture of him from in-game for comparison.

This one is my sister-in-law's favorite toon.  The one she plays the most.  Her name is Princess Pickles.  I asked both my brother and sil to pick a "speedchat" phrase so I could use it on the towel and she just happened to pick this one.  They had no idea what I was making for them from these images. Again I've included a picture of the in-game version for comparison if you're interested.

And finally this is my brother's toon.  The belt buckle is cool because even though it's standard game issue, it's our last initial. Very cool.  And the phrase my brother picked is cool because it's actually the phrase that my online Clan (ATTA) uses to identify each other in-game.  The proper response to this phrase is always, "Sorry I can't."  Grin

And, as usual, if you're interested in seeing more detail pictures, please feel free to click through to my Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/fatewineroses/)
