1  The birdwoman in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Nodsu on: September 13, 2016 07:59:23 PM
I made this birdwoman, for the talented ArtsyCandice, in IYP swap. I know she loves all things bird and women-  and I tried to work that into an art doll, I would enjoy making.
She has wire body porcelain arm and feather wing, coffee dyed  (I tried  Grin )cheesecloth neck and feet and clay plague mask peak. Her body is rom wool sweater and has embroiderd stitches on it. And I love that antique lace trim Smiley

And she brought her little hungry plant pet with her  Wink - wire body, glass bead teeth (posable mouth and tongue) ... they both might be a bit on the creepy side, but i swear, they behived like perfect ladies, while staying over, so no worries!  Wink

The floofiest kitty I ever made.
I just love the color of her eyes ... and the floofiness 😄
And someone that fancy could use a some accessories, right?

Thanks for looking!

Wow! The gallery has exploded!
I love the stenciled shirt, the quilt, THE QUILT! The glass, the hood, the beautiful stumpwork embroidery - so much to admire!

And - I've received from the fantabulous ArtsyCandice!
We agreed to swap 1 large (hahaa, I knew it would end like this 😄) - but I got more awesome than 1 thing.

But first.
Look at this wall art!
I absolutely adore this doll!
I really love lacey handpainted  art dolls - and having one on the wall is the perfect way to display her!
She's got beautiful painted body, with rosy knees and perfectly sewn lacey dress, beady wings and ribbon shoes and a set of awesome antlers! The scull necklace adds personality and whimsy to her as well!
In love.
She's hanging in my daughters' room now - my little one is a devoted little ballerina and is so excited to have her on their wall.

And I received also 2 other wall art pieces - I'm too excited, as it'll be so fun to mix and match these small art pieces on my walls! A beautiful golden sculpture cast feather (my first cast piece!) And a photo art (love the mermai tail!)
And a little cage with super fun supplies! Love the cage and every treasure it contains - little trims and tidbits!

I'm so happy with my new treasures - it was a wonderful treat - thank you so much! ❤

(I'll send on due date, if not sooner 😄)

4  When someone is that handsome, you just have to draw him in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Nodsu on: July 09, 2016 11:57:06 PM
With mistakes and all, cause you don't really draw that often... but still turns out cute.
There's this doggie, that has the most perfect eye makeup ever (#creedmorethegreat ) - and I jsut had to draw him last night, when itching to doodle, but not having a subject Cheesy

here's my drawing:

and here's the cutie:

5  Sphynx brooch in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: July 09, 2016 11:43:12 PM
I'm a bit obsessed with Sphynx kitties Cheesy
Aren't they the coolest - such weird animals with the biggest most gorgeous eyes ... and no hair on couches and sweaters!
(well, mine don't anyway, as we don't have any pets... but I'm hoping for a nude kitten at some point in my life Cheesy).

They also make for great jewelry - so, I made a brooch. Just a head (and my June Planning Ai doll is modeling it for me, too Tongue)

Hope you like!

6  Science Birthday Party! in Party Planning by Nodsu on: June 30, 2016 09:33:59 PM
My 8 yo decided she really wants to have a science themed party this year.
I love theme parties and especially such a great one - not any of that Disney stuff, but science! Haa!

So, we needed:

*disposable medical coats - to protect clothing and customize with sharpies
*silly glasses and felt moustaches - cause silly!
*Special Einstein wig for the Bday girl
*beakers - for juice
*test tubes - to fill with candies and to take home
*test cups {with biohazard stickers}- to put their glue goo in
*Pinjata - a quick red test tube with bubble wrap "foam" sticking out
*Photo props - Elements table (with an extra element - the Bday kid's name!), rat, test tube and Einstein's hair
*Fun facts decor - Einstein's and Hawking's quote
*petri dishes-  to take some wonderful little tetanus and salmonella viruses home - gotta have gifts! Cheesy

Progress video of one of the drawings:

and we also needed supplies, such as:

*white glue - for goo making
*Borax - to mix with glue to get goo
*baking soda - to mix with vinegar to fill balloons with gas
*Balloons - to fill said gas with
*Empty water bottles - to put the vinegar and baking soda in
*Vinegar - to mix with baking soda to get gas
*Dry ice - to add to juice for cool icy effect

Look at the balloons filling up:

- cause, you know - nobody can be uncheered with a balloon! -
(you should've heard the squealing and giggling, that the balloon trick caused- such excitement!)

Everyone had a blast and the experiments with basic household items were a huge hit, so was the dry ice Smiley
(and I had a lot of fun making stuff for the party - if only I could get someone to run the show, that day, too, we'd be all set Cheesy)

I love how beautiful it is - the little space wing with this awesome colorful bead! You nailed it, much like with Rusty Smiley

Love this swap and my 2 little badges are perfect! Smiley

Don't you love it, when something you never knew, you needed, pops into your life and you just love it to pieces.
It's got my fav things incorporated- shrooms, moths and it's distressed with awesome!

This is the story of my doll ☺

It's absolutely perfect - even if I had to design a more perfect doll, I wouldn't be ableto come up with something I'd love more - and my kids have been ooh'ing and aah'ing this whole time, too.
(And I thought my doll was cute -oops!)

I love everything about it - the wig stitches, the mushrooms! (Did you make them?) The eyes! (What are they?). The whimsical quirky-cute face is the best! And the jute-wrapped feet .... SO MUCH to love! He will definitely have the best spot on my craft room shelf. Why can't I have crafty friends like that in my neighborhood!?
(Glad I can have them here)

So, here's the cutie!

Thank you sooooooo much, PerfectlyBohemian! I couldn't love him more, even if I tried Smiley

(...NOW I gots anxiety, cause my little thingamajing wasn't nearly as gran! Eep!)
(I'm posting on my phone, so I hope the pics are good enough)

ETA: finally got back home and was able to read your card [having a crazy busy day here]
- loved the description - and OMG you made the shroomies! You talented you! And the eyes are beads- how clever! I love how beautiful and colorful they are.
(And I love how you wrote all the info about the details - I need to start doing that, I really need to carve out more time for swaps as this one was just beyond awesome!)

so- lovelovelove everything you made (will post the badge soon too!) for me - THANK YOU!

I have received from CMOUSE01!
I love this flea circus badge! My parents used to always refer to our sibling dramas as flea circus stuff 😄 - love the fleas and all the details!
Thank you so much- it'll be awesome on me fridge!
