3651  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Tiny House Swap: Sign-ups 1/2-1/16, Sendouts 2/6/09 on: February 01, 2009 09:52:21 AM
Jenicat, thanks for posting so many pics of the cottage Lmcbride made for you!  I forget that we may have people with dial-up connections here, so I apologize for my big ones if we do.  I do make sure that all my images are "saved for web" so even if they are large on the screen they are small in terms of kilobytes.

Thanks for the enthusiasm about my little display cabinet!  I'm excited about it, too.  I'm hoping that there will be many rounds of this swap, because I really want to have a collection of many craftsters (and others) wee houses.  I love tiny houses (which is why annacharlotte and I have been swapping links for a year or so), but am really trying to de-clutter and am afraid of having an Official Collection of anything.  Having a wall-hung cabinet will keep it manageable physically and mentally.  If round 2 is in late Feb - March, I'll have to miss it, though.  Sigh.

Leapin lizards!  What all is that made from and how much does it weigh, Lmcbride?  I'd really like to see something for scale on that... even a dragon if that's what you've got, Jenicat.  Or a measurement would be neat.

I just realized yesterday that I hadn't done a final measurement and that I probably should verify that I'm within the 4x4x4 specs.  My largest measurement is 3 7/8".  Whew, that was close!

Wow! Looks like you got the hang of things quickly!  There are some really cool cross-stitch pattern makers selling patterns on etsy, including some craftsters.

Wow!  That looks great and it sounds like it's really doing it's job!  It seems that most of the home made bras aren't made to really do a bra's job.  Plus it's pretty!  Why do bra makers believe that just because one's bosom is ample, one doesn't want her bras to be pretty or sexy?  I might look into this pattern!

Oh, yeah... I'm also hitting "This Rocks!"

How does 2 make a "commission"?  Isn't that just "a couple of people"?  Of course, that seems ludicrous, but if there are only 2 to convince, maybe that's a good thing.  Or does that 2 just mean the only members present?

Oh MissT, that's perfect!  I love the tree collages.

Thanks, camelama!  I hope I can find the images to finish it off.

OY!  I was just about to put together my specific Tiny House Packaging and part of my house broke.   Cry  So, I'm glad it happened here instead of at annacharlotte's, but still I'm bummed and not sure exactly how I"m going to fix it AND make the break and the other area constructed the same way stronger w/o changing the look too much.  SIGH.   Cry

WOW mistressT ... that house holder is soooo cool! The first thing that popped in my head for thw top and bottom was sky/cloud for top and grass/rocks/sand for bottom, although they may look better in my head than it actually would on it! LOL I love the idea and the different little backgrounds! VERY COOL!

Thanks!  I'm pleased with it so far!  I was thinking something similar myself.  I think I want to keep the exterior black and white and the cubbyholes color... I think I have enough sky and ground images in b/w to do it, but I'm not sure yet.

zombiekilla!  You totally deserve a Dedicated Craftster Badge if you dislocated BEFORE actually getting to the PO!  My goodness.

Ok!  So, I've mentioned that when the sign-ups for this swap were underway that I realized I had the perfect display piece for Tiny Houses.  Potentially perfect, that is.  I got this at the Goodwill bins a few years ago with the intention of refinishing it.  It still had the Marshall's tag on it (I paid 1/4 of that price) and it's no wonder, because it was really ugly.

Exhibit A (after sanding it, but you get the idea):

Color is more accurate in the other shots, this was taken inside after dark under halogen lights)

And as a WIP with each cubbyhole having a different "landscape" and the sides collages of various and sundry trees:


One side:


Ultimately I'd like no red showing, including on the bottom as it hangs on the wall and might be visible.  I plan to do some architectural images on the front or maybe curtain-like images, too.  Not quite sure about the top and bottom of the cabinet yet, but plan on painting the top and bottom of each cubby, either in colors similar to the images within or a dark neutral like black or dark brown.

Some close-ups of some of the cubbyholes:
 

I don't think that I'll necessarily match the tiny houses to their backgrounds as I get them, so I'd like to have lunar or mars background in there, too!  Also a forest and jungle, perhaps some of those houses on stilts in the river... you can see what I'm getting at.  The rub is that I want them in color and they have to be about 9" wide and about 2 5/8" tall (taller for the top row).

Speaking of annacharlotte, I just took a squillion pics of your house!  I'll have it packaged up and ready to send on Monday!  Whee!  It's killin me not to post it as it's own project before you get it.  ARG!  To satiate my desire, I will instead post here some WIP shots of the future home to my wee houses!  First I have to upload and edit them, though.
