21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Christmas Ornament Swap 2009 [CLOSED Sendouts Oct 15th] on: October 05, 2009 12:23:30 PM
I had a complete panic attack this weekend when, in my mind, I thought that send outs were TODAY.  I really gotta write this stuff down.  Roll Eyes

Finally settled on WHAT I'm doing...now on to perfecting execution! I love this part! Grin
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Alistar and Bud - a space fish and his prey on: October 01, 2009 10:17:22 AM

This guy was made for a swap on Flickr with my friend spookshowbaby77. We had mutually admired each others foray into the dotee doll, had swapped twice before, and decided to do another swap for a dotee doll.

I originally had the idea to come up with a doll idea that would at least match my last efforts and be something I know Kerry would like. After muddling along with some ideas that were decent, but not awe-worthy...I had a light bulb flash when I was moving around some felt pins I am making for an Etsy shop I hope to open soon.

I figured that while he would be 3-dimensional like the pin, I could make him into what would be the accepted format of the "dotee" doll, which was the original intent of the swap, right?

Well, as I began to work on them, the felt and ideas sort of took over. I truly don't remember when he turned into a fish, (let alone a space fish), instead of a monster; but I'm glad he did!  And I'm sure you recognize Bud, or at least recognize where he's inspired from anyway.  Wink

They are hand-stitched entirely of recycled felt, with Alistar's eyes made from two buttons and Bud's eyes are glued on googly eyes. He is stuffed with polyfill.

I absolutely love his belly. Originally it was just going to be flat but something called to me and I just had to make a ridged belly for him.

Been waiting for this swap. Really really enjoyed last year's swap.  Hopefully I can join more than one of these swaps this season!

I thought I saw this before. You know...you might consider potentially sending PMs to some of us you know for sure are interested in Valdemar.  Many of us don't look at this forum very often.  I know I'm guilty of it.

And even if you don't get a bunch of people, maybe we could do a very small swap? I know there are at least four of us.  You...I don't remember your partner's name...goat goddess...and me!  Maybe we could do a swap with just the four of us?  It's worth a thought!

Two of my partners have received and one has disappeared.  I really wanted to share what I sent out though, as I really enjoyed the creative process.

This is Steve the zombie. Until pretty recently Steve was a member of his high school's basketball team. Died in a high speed chase on a lonely road outside of town.  His craving for brains began soon after he dug himself out of his grave. He tried to be "civilized" and eat only animal brains, but he found them unsatisfying. So now he just tries to go as long as he can between feedings and picks the best brains he can find for his meals. At night, after he feeds, you can see him speeding down that same lonely road, flipping off the police as they chase him across the countryside.

Steve's brain that he keeps handy in case of an "emergency."

This is Tyche. She's the Greek goddess of fortune. Personification of the Fates Tyche was one of the most popular gods to be worshiped by the Greeks.  She wears a crown with a ball on her head to show the unsteadiness of luck, carries a cornucopia symbolizing the plentiful gifts of Fortune and holds a rudder showing how she guides the Destiny of man.  Wings are shown sometimes signifying Fortune's ability to wing us high. Inside I placed a money prayer, to attract wealth.

Her wings.

And finally Rebecca. She's just a mom who lives on a farm. She's happy and content with her life and loves being a mom.

Smmarrt - Oh yeah! I'm such a dork that as soon as I saw the opened book I knew exactly what it was! Awesome!!!

Laela - Oh yeah. I've been a fan of Valdemar since I was about 13...we won't talk about exactly how long that is except to say that...it's a freakin' long time! lol  I actually did an ATC that was a Companion for Goat Goddess for a swap when I found out she's a Valdemar fan as well. I wouldn't be surprised to find a bunch more out there as well.
