That's really cool!  The level of detail is amazing and the result so charming!

I recently had a reason to say to the ManFlesh, "Crafting infiltrates all media.  Resistance is futile."  And now here you are illustrating Crafting As Revenge!  AWESOME!  I hope that your problem is solved and doesn't escalate... that you can live peacefully in your home now.  If not, perhaps some kind of smoke initiated sprinkler system?

Fantastic!  I've recently taken up embroidery again after more years than I want to think it's been... let's just say decades.  Anyway, this is very inspiring!  I'm going to bookmark it for when I'm ready to look for a new embroidery project!

That will be hysterical!  And from my experience with toothpaste tubes I bet you will have very refreshing pencils.

A pencil case, eh?  Cool!  Please do it and then post it!

I've got 2!  YKYACW :
You walk through the hardware store with your hubby and mentally catalog the things you could use in a craft. 

And when you have a seriously hard time throwing away your used tube of toothpaste because you're almost positive you can make something from it. (And decide to check craftster to see!)

You totally can make something from a used tube of toothpaste!  At least, I have.

Great tribute!  My city also has an extinct volcano, but we're not the capital - just the largest in the state.  I love that Jackson's coliseum is right on top!  Ours is merely a park.

Thanks!  I'm getting encouraged to get back to the pillowcases I started last autumn!

I had so much trouble with the non-knot thing on the other monogram.  I don't know if it's just because I'm so out of practice or if it's because I was outlining in a different stitch.  The back of that one is not at all pretty.

Whew!  What a relief!  Even though camelama sent a lovely PM or email and wrote a complimentary "I received" post, I was still having Swap Anxiety (SA).  I'm SO PLEASED that receiving your package could help make a positive difference in your stressful day!   Of course I have a copy of the text of the scroll!  You don't get a basement full of Creative Remnants And Paraphernalia (CRAP) by not keeping things!  I also have photos of the chest (before and after).  Glad to hear Neevie is "hating" her toys, too.  YEY!

Pirate's Tea Chest (like "Sea Chest" only for tea... get it?)

Scroll text:
A pirate craves the finer things in life, but her swashbuckling lifestyle and the rowdy company she keeps make it difficult for her keep her things tidy, let alone whole.  Lets face it: pillaging and plundering are not tasks pursued gently.  Cups break leaving orphaned saucers, linens are soiled beyond what seawater can clean, and everything gets nicked and battered.

But, as the song says, its the pirates life for her, so she sips her afternoon tea from an assortment of others finest china and dabs her lips with the remnants of cloth shes had her crew fashion into what passes for dainty table linens.  Its not what she imagined when she first took up the pirating trade, but the Dread Pirate Camelama wouldnt have it any other way.  Well, maybe more gold.


The sausage packing tape is from Archie McPhee - right there in camelama's own town!

Thanks for the info!  I figured that most of the commitment to veganism was about obtaining from cruelty and supporting the environment, but thought I'd ask anyway.
