I stole the design for your stamp off your wist... You had these cut paper bookmarks of the elements, and I did my best to reproduce the "fire" one, so if you turn it longways you will (hopefully  Cheesy) see the word "fire"

zomg, I see it, that is freakin' fantastic!

Okay, time for some pics!

I received yesterday from blushingbluegrass, and I have to say she really hit the nail on the head! Let's begin the tour, shall we?



First stop, extras! Burt's bees, muffin mix from a local flour mill, a cute journal/notebook, and adorable salt and pepper shakers! Did I actually mention anywhere on the interwebs that I collect salt and peppers? That's some spooky sixth sense stuff going on there Cheesy



Now for some crafted goodies:
 an adorable painting (I've named the pink fish Dory Grin)
 handcrafted soap (swoon!)
 cute little bunny finger puppet
 gingerbread felt ornament, partially eaten!
 hand-carved stamp (so awesome, I've been wanting to try doing this forever)
 Nintendo controller shrinky charm



T shirts! One each for me and my man; we've got "Mischief Managed" for me and "My girlfriend beats me (at Scrabble)" for him! I lurve my shirt, I'm going to wear it to work tomorrow... and the boy saw his and said "hey, she even put the numbers on the Scrabble letters, that's pretty cool" which is about as close as he ever gets to glowing praise, so my hat's off to you! Wink My apologies for the rather crappy photo, they're much better in person Embarrassed


...what's that? You wanted to see the stocking? Well brace yourselves for the coolest stocking I've ever seen!



Shocked Yep, that's right, Super Mario winter scene stocking! This is just the coolest stocking ever! Just... wow, this stocking makes me so very happy Grin

...and just for fun, the kitties approved of your choice of packing material:



Thank you so much, blushingbluegrass for a really fun swap, I am totally loving all of my presents, and I can't wait for you to get your package!

I've been waiting forever to do one of these swaps! I just finished up one of my favorite knitting projects, the Hermione hat from the third Harry Potter movie:



It's a very warm and snug winter hat. 100% wool.

I received my X card from mamaedgar, "X is for xebec"



Oops... it seems there was a hair on my scanner Embarrassed

Love the card, mamaedgar! I'm also diggin' on the black-and-white action Smiley Thanks so much to all of my partners for swapping with me, and a big thanks to TwiztidBlood for organizing!

I received my V card from cclewis05 today:



V is for Volume

The "sound" is sort of reverse appliqued on the card, very cute! I had actually thought of doing the word "volume" myself, but I was stumped on how to do it... clever Smiley Thanks cclewis05!

Sajona - LOVE the grape vine Shocked So pretty!

I am totally loving everyone's cards, really great word choices!

Here's my W card from Panthermoon



The title is "Women's Work is never done" So true! I really love the texture of the background, and the little "gem" over the W Smiley Thanks so much Panthermoon for my first ATC ever!

And what great cards from everyone. I especially love the Xyloid card, the stitching and the adorable tree button! So cute and clever Smiley

I made one of these, and it's totally awesome!



(hmm... should sand it a little more still Embarrassed)

I'm going to try some more stamps with thinner lines, I think they'll come out a lot cleaner-looking that way. Thanks so much for the tute!

Here's a couple more ornaments:

polymer clay yule log:



It's 1"x1.5" It's a present for my boss, who always forgets to make a sample yule log cake the week before Christmas, and thus no one knows we make them until it's too late to order them Roll Eyes It's intended to hang from the sign he puts out for the customers. I'm really very pleased with how this came out Grin

And... a Santa Dinosaur ornament:



This one's for a friend who just moved back to the states and doesn't have very many ornaments yet.

Alright, I've got some ornaments for ya! Polymer clay stocking ornaments, for my sister and her fiance, completed this morning.

Behold!





Should we not post full-sized pics here? I'll change them to thumbnails if people think that's better.

20  Stocking Ornaments - My first time with clay! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RedMenace on: January 05, 2009 07:44:05 PM
First off, let me say that I've been stalking this board for a while now, and I'm humbled by your collective mad skills. Shocked

I was recently in Joann's and they were having a 50% off sale on Fimo... clearly a sign that it's time to give polymer clay a try. I brought my enormous bag of clay home and got to work, and came up with these:





I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, though I realized only after they were baked that what I thought was white clay was actually translucent. Didn't matter so much for the toes and heels, but the features on the gingerbread dude sorta faded into the brown, so I Sharpie'd them, and they're okay-looking.

I think I'm hooked on this stuff, so you'll be seeing more from me pretty soon! Cheesy
