I claim girlosun_9 for wisty inspired cards with envelopes

This is my fourth claim, 1 received, 1 sent

I am from Ontario, Canada

I'm a 36 yo SAHM with 4 kids living in Acton, Ontario trying to fit my art-making in between dinners, naps, university and playdates....my favorite colours are black, red, purple, cobalt.  I really dislike pastels.  I adore skulls, greenmen, cool stripey-legged dolls, medieval stuph, and general goth-y goodness.  I love ephemera, embellishing, and anything old and crusty....yum!!! But duct-tape and I are in a "business, not for pleasure" relationship...I use too much of it around the house to fix stuff   

Here is my list:


Something inspred by my wists (www.wists.com/bhean)


Crafted stuph:

Supplies:

- Sugar skull molds (oh joy!)

I received my perfect Waldorf doll kit from poerava this morning.  (I must say that the last week has been hell and this little bit of joy really cheered me up).



Within the bag, there is roving for stuffing the doll and dark roving at the top of the pic for the hair, fabric for the body and clothes as well as all the thread i will need and even a chopstick for poking stuffing into the small parts!



I love it, thank you so much, poerava, this will make my girls happy (and me as well!)

26  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Rogue-along, anyone? on: November 11, 2008 06:04:45 PM
OOOHHH....I should start, I have the pattern, I have all the yarn, but I is afeared.  I really want to knit this, but this would also be my first sweater....I am trying to decide if I should just jump in with the Rogue or start small and knit my kids something first. (Oh, maybe I could rogue-up their sleeves!)
27  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Medieval Swap anyone? on: October 03, 2008 09:01:07 PM
Sorry about the radio silence...I've been REALLLY sick with bronchitis (as have all 4 babies and 1 husband) on top of having to throw 2 birthdays and getting ready for my FIRST real art exhibit (TOMORROW!!!  eep)  You get the picture.

Anyway, I've read everyone's posts again and I think that I see a few common points that people are chiming up on.  It seems that many people are not comfortable with the idea of making clothing/garb, and that's cool (the shipping would be killer, not to mention very hard to do fittings, esp since most period stuff wasn't exactly "baggy") Also a pretty specific questionaire would help me match people up with similar interests - historically accurate craft vs ren faire stuff; specific periods of interest- early, middle, late.

So, the key question is when would you like to get started?  Sooner, later?  I figure that having a reasonably longish crafting time (at least 4 weeks, more like 6) would be best, but then we are running into holiday time which would slow down the delivery time....

Also, do we want to stick to 1 large, 1 med, 1 small?  or 2 medium or 1 medium , 1 small?

Anyway, I've procrastinated enough on my sculpture-gotta go finish it so that I can mount it in the morning.

I know that we were talking about things craftydeb right after you  got 300e.  Thanks for telling me about the hoop size.  I was looking at the 200e just last weekend.  The Digitizer software is still soooooo expensive.

Have you tried embroidering on fun fur?  Even a short nap?  I have an idea....

This is SO early for me to be so far in a swap - very uncharacteristic  Grin

I totally understand!  I have supplies, plans and sketches - usually where I get to by this point....
