1  Miniature Butcher and Charcuterie in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: December 14, 2014 10:16:08 AM
I made this for my husband for Christmas. He used to be a butcher many moons ago and is still smitten with meaty things. He smokes his own bacon, makes his own sausage and even dries his own meats. Basically, he feels the same way about meat as I feel about crafting Tongue



The outside measurements are around 7.5" x 5.8". It's pretty dang small and the inside space was even teenier so it was a chore to arrange all the inside bits and still have it close up.
Here's a business card and pencil for size reference...



I made all of the meats with polymer clay. I'm usually pretty relaxed with the realism in my work so this level of non-imaginaryness was a change for me.



And that's that! Now to wrap this sucker up and hide it before he peeks... he is a total peeker. Seriously, worse than my kid  Tongue

Here's a covert picture with the hanging rail in place. I almost can't wait to give it to him  Smiley

Hellooooo!!!!

It's seems like forever since I posted in here but I refuse to let this thread die!  Kiss

I'm making a little something for my hubs for Christmas... and since I can't show it off anywhere else because of his peeking eyes I'm sharing here



It's not completely done yet but I'm so proud I couldn't wait to show it off. He used to be a butcher and still cures his own meats and makes sausages and stuff from home so I've made him this little shop including all of the contents Smiley

4  Tiny Winter Wonderland in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: November 18, 2014 11:08:14 AM
My neighbour volunteers at a charity/thrift shop and brings me loads of great stuff. A couple of weeks ago she dropped off an empty clock box. I knew right away that I wanted to create a little wonderland inside.







The piece can be viewed from either side. One side features a little cottage, the other a tiny snowman.



This fellow is a smidge smaller than the one in this piece.

Overall the piece measures 7" x 8"

5  Poe and Lovecraft Framed Portraits in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: October 23, 2014 08:50:28 AM
I had a design team assignment from Petaloo to create something with their products, and products from Xyron and Core'dinations for a Halloween blog hop, and because they are super cool they let me create whatever pops into my head. So, I made these two 'Masters of Horror' portraits featuring Edgar A Poe and HP Lovecraft





The tentacles are made from polymer clay



I'm pretty sure that's a turkey feather, not a raven's... but I know you won't spoil the secret  Kiss

Prepare to be blown away! I received the most astounding package from felicitybaby.

Some bits and bobs, including a little Butter Beer mug.



Then, an amazing dragon sketchbook.





Next, this Burrow pillow which I completely adore.



And.... drumroll... a lap quilt!



I'm going to show off each of the squares because it is mindblowing  Kiss

























Slowly but surely my house is turning into the Burrow Wink



Thanks for being an amazing partner felicitybaby!

7  Little Saint Expedite Shrine in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: September 18, 2014 10:49:53 AM
I created this little shrine to Saint Expedite using all sorts of new and old bits and pieces. Inside there is offerings of beer and cake in the little vials, a four leaf clover and a scrolled note to that great saint who is forever saving my butt.





A pic with my grubby hand for size reference.

8  Sky Pirate Paper Zeppelin in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Knickertwist on: September 18, 2014 07:04:35 AM
Not toooo long ago I drafted a paper rocket ship for Graphic 45. While making the rocket ship I knew I could apply the same template to create something even cooler than a rocket... a sky-pirate zeppelin! And so the fleet of flying things in my studio has grown to include this papery bit of goodness.











The piece measures under 8" x 10"

Wait till you see what MissingWillow sent to me!

Magical soaps that somehow managed to get my kid to take a bath just so he could smell like monkey farts.



These stunning poisonous (or at the very least quite dangerous) embroidered napkins.



They really are the most amazing things and I will cause bodily harm to anyone who dares to soil them.



AND (as if getting my kid in the tub wasn't enough) ... big fat drum roll ...



A QUILT! A MO FO' QUILT! I've always said I would die for a quilt and although I didn't pass away, I did do a happy dance and feel quite faint.



It's all sorts of Gorey good and I love it Smiley

WOo hoo! THANK YOU MissingWillow!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Not exactly a wee house... more of a wee room, a cellar actually.







Measures just over 7" x 5" x 5"
