41  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - September 2012 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by SonjaBoo on: October 01, 2012 08:24:04 AM
This is an awesome gallery! Great cards everyone!

I received an awesome Elvis card from spikefan -- how cute is this guy?  Cheesy

And two awesome cards from our lovely hostess, jillybeans! She chose my stained glass theme (which features crackle paint, my new obsession), and we did a personal swap for an ATC from her state.  How gorgeous are these? And she sent along some fun extra ATC bases. Grin

Thank you so much for swapping ladies! I love the cards!

That baby in a caldron is hilarious! I love it! Grin

I received from teag -- I love this house so much! The skeleton hands are so cool. 

And a peek at the back:

Thank you so much teag!  Grin  I am still working on my houses, but they will be on their way soon!

Ok everyone, hold on to your hats! I received last night from the incredibly talented Sewphie, and I am absolutely in love with her work! If you didn't know, Sewphie seems to specialize in mind-blowing embroidery work, and after stalking her thoroughly for this swap, I was dreaming that she would include some of that talent in her tin -- and she totally did!! And I am swooning!

She chose my theme of the Evil Queen from Snow White, a character that I have always found fascinating. Now, is this regal or what? And yes, that entire crown is embroidered and beaded.  

A look at the back:

And where is our little Evil Queen? Hiding in the forest of course, choosing just the right apple to give away... (insert evil laugh.) Oh, and btw, that tiny little apple is stumpwork embroidery.

And as if that wasn't enough, Sewphie sent along some extras -- look at that girl smoking the cigarrette! Ha!

I took these photos last night, so I apologize if they aren't quite as clear as they could be -- I really wanted to get photos posted since it has taken our tins so long to travel to their homes! Sewphie, thank you sweetheart for swapping with me. Your work is just beautiful! I hope your tin gets there this week -- I am getting impatient and nervous to see if you like it!

44  Thank you for being a friend! Golden Girls CCS in Needlework: Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: September 10, 2012 12:16:58 PM
I stitched these gals up a few weeks ago as a gift for a friend who loves the Golden Girls as much as I do! I used a super awesome pattern from weelittlestitches on Etsy, and changed the colors up a bit. 

Hipstamatic shot taken right after I finished:

Framed and ready for gift giving:

This was a fun project because it really didn't take that long to make -- I love instant gratification when it comes to embroidery. Grin  C&C welcome!

I received wonderful piece of art from susanab! It was created during a thunderstorm -- how fun is that?

And a closeup shot -- I love the little girl in the upper left hand corner!

Thank you so much for swapping susanab! Grin

Also, DC says that my art was delivered on Saturday to Sacramento... and of course, I think I forgot to put my Craftster name on it! I hope that it arrived safely!  Tongue

Next, from hazelly -- even more goodies! All sorts of ephemera and roving! And a beautiful tree of life pendant -- so beautiful!

And finally, from zigg13pra -- lots of ephemera goodies! I love the sonjaboo papers! Grin

47  A shrine to the Bowling Queen of Oklahoma in Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: February 22, 2012 06:55:09 PM
Another project that I made during a swap with grasshopper -- I have been itching to make a shrine, and knew exactly what to make when I learned that she coaches a high school bowling team! 

Just so the kids know who is in charge...  Grin

The base of this shrine is from a kit, and I painted it with gold ink, used some images I had on hand, and blinged it up around the edges.  The letters are each stamped on paper and cut out, then glued onto the shrine -- I wanted it to definitely have an aged look. It was super fun to make and swap!

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

48  Paperclay gnome and hearts in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: February 22, 2012 06:49:15 PM
I have been playing around with paper clay quite a bit lately, and made this little gnome guy recently for a swap. (A swap with the ever-fabulous grasshopper! Grin)

A side view -- you can't see it very well, but I think his little butt is cute! ha!

And I made these for me for Valentine's decor -- we have some boring little shelves in our kitchen that needed some color. Our cat has batted them around more than once, but they are still going strong. They are painted, stamped and have paper bits sealed on.

Thanks for looking!

49  Shhh! Grasshopper's napping altered Altoid tin in Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: February 22, 2012 06:43:39 PM
I recently particpated in the Wicked Vice altered Altoid tin swap, and my partner was grasshopper, who claims one of her biggest vices is napping.  (Naps are the highlight of my day.) So here's the tin that I came up with for her!

The front -- shhh!

And opened up... someone is napping in her mossy bed. On the wall you can see a few of her favorite treasures, including an alarm clock, a portrait of a beloved family member and a Dr. Pepper for later when she needs a caffiene boost. Grin

And a peek under the blanket -- but can't leave it off too long, or she'll get a chill! And of course she needs an eye mask to keep the light out of her eyes.  Roll Eyes

This was a great swap, and I was so lucky to have grasshopper as a swap partner!   Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

50  First Foray into Felt Food in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: February 18, 2012 08:53:45 AM
I don't think I've ever posted on this board before -- this is so exciting! I realize felt food has been done a thousand times over (and none of this stuff is revolutionary) but I had a ton of fun making some felt goodiees for my Goddaughter and wanted to share.

Breakfast -- bacon and eggs, and pancakes with syrup and butter:

Carrots and a few citrus slices -- since taking these photos, I have also made some peapods:

Chocolate chip cookies and frosted cookies:

The whole shebang together:

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
