Are we all on for an October OOWYHS?

I am the lucky recipient of Little Frida, and I love her! She sits propped up next to the computer and smiles serenely at me while I'm online.  Smiley I would probably shrug in disdain at a mass-produced Frida doll, but a one-of-a-kind, completely hand-made creation like this is too cool for words.

Edit: I made her some jewelry yesterday!

Are you planning to be the organizer, neverseenblue?  If not, does someone else want to step up to the plate--err, the calendar? I can't commit to being an organizer right now, the future is too iffy.

Ooh, I love that handmade paper. I broke my screen and haven't fixed it, so there has been very little paper making at the Balkandina Chez Funkrustico recently.
And let's all send a papery round robin hug to KarenLouiseM Smiley


Yes, big hugs. - Smiley-  I just made a recon blank book and used paper (book-themed gift wrap) that KarenLouiseM sent me to cover the bookboards...Its too big to put on the scanner, but I wanted to at least note that some of my goodies are already being put to work!

I made a big list. Explanations not included for the self-explanatory people:
1. Vincent Van Gogh
2. Frida Kahlo
3. Ernesto "Che" Guevara: Fidel Castro's right (or in this case, left!)-hand man in the Cuban Revolution; went on to fight in other revolutionary battles in Latin America once Castro's government was established;  killed by the CIA in Bolivia.
4. Mohandas Gandhi
5. Malcolm X (born Malcolm Little): Major figure in the 1960s Black Power movement and the Nation of Islam; still an icon, decades after his assassination.
6. Helen Keller: In spite of being blind and deaf, learned to communicate and became a social advocate and public speaker. Her teacher, Anne Sullivan, was originally on my list because she rocks too, but I really couldn't imagine what one might craft about her.
7. Amelia Earhart: First female aviator to fly across the Atlantic solo. She disappeared while flying over the South Pacific Ocean and her plane was never found.
8. Joan of Arc
9. John Brown: Radical and fanatically religious U.S. abolitionist who, in public opinion, took it a step too far, and was executed for killing of pro-slavery whites in Kansas (before the Civil War, there was a huge political fight over whether the new state of Kansas would be a slave-state or a free-state, and this was Brown's answer to the issue)

Hey, I just got my paper/ephemera package from casslyra today too!  - 2008 Easter Seals calendar with lots of big flower backgrounds, a vegetarian cookbook, and a cruise guidebook with various cool pics
- Music sheets and art images
 Location images
Bracelet kit

This and some of the other pages were from magazines and ads having to do with southern California, and though I'm in S. California I'd never seen them before, and casslyra sent from the east coast...It's funny how images make the rounds, even in such a big country.  Smiley

Thanks for these thoughtful items!!

I do have more of the fabrics I posted, so not a problem.  Smiley

Woohooooo! I love the bowling fabric!!  \Cheesy/

Ah, crappity...I was afraid of that. I remember you claiming it, and I was hoping maybe gavagai just has more...?

If there is no more bowling fabric, I will take the bunny fabric. Thanks!
