This gallery is always one of my faves, it gets the most amazing stuff in it all year!

I sent bunny1kenobi some mini things for the awesome apothecary she made and in return she spoiled me rotten with 4 wicked good TM patches. They remind me of her ATC's, she has such a distinct style of her own that is really beautiful. Check these out:

First summer flowers with lace, sequins, beads, buttons, and delicate stitching for the stems and leaves.
The butterfly is so lovely, embellished with beads and perfect stitches, just Perfect!

Next "THIRST" which is stitching over paint on batik.
The mermaid is my favourite, more perfect stitching and dainty golden chain jewelry.

I'm collecting to make a sewing machine cover, it will be so great seeing all these little bits of treasure from friends here.

Nah, it's a fair question!  Buy cheap, buy twice, eh?  I took some pics.

The box seems to say all the right things, including stuff about craft applications:

The paper:

Really I can't see (or feel) much difference between the two sides.  :/

On a lighter note, this is my stash on toddlers:

I had some "help" with my art quilt sewing this afternoon! Cheesy

I make books out of cereal &/or cracker boxes and coffee sleeves. I save the food boxes at work and collect the coffee sleeves from all of my coffee-drinking coworkers. I challenge you to find something that you use or come into contact with in your daily life and make a book out of it. Might be your Cliff Bar addiction (I promise we won't judge), shopping bags, junk mail or something you see on your daily walk/run that you never considered before.

Post your completed projects here  - we all want to learn new techniques and it might spark an idea when we see what you use to make a book. This challenge runs through the month of April so get crafty!

Some of the work I've done within the last couple of days. I've been so busy making dolls and I haven't had time to paint, so I managed to squeeze these in and had a lot of fun! The three kids are all my kids when they were about 1.5 years old, and the family portrait is a gift for the husband Smiley.

Thanks for looking!

{I hope this is the right place to post, since it's not jewelry exactly}

I don't wear rings often, because I have a horrible habit of taking them off and leaving them places.  Sad
But I saw this idea on Pinterest, and it was love at first sight!
{all supplies purchased at Michael's (already had the glue) *NOT SPONSORED*}

Original inspiration.

My version.

This was after one project, the assemblage I just finished. Now granted it was multi-media so I did pull out all sorts of different supplies I might not ordinarily use all at once but...

Obviously the space needs work and not just to tidy this craftastrophe up. We went out and got more bins last night, that's my project for today. Sigh, this has been a never ending process for me. Make a big mess that takes longer to clean up than whatever crafting caused it. I gotta figure this out.

Alby has returned home with fun souvenirs and a flamingo and pineapple bedecked album:

Among his treasures are a magnet from Busch Gardens; a sticker and magnet from the Center for Biological Diversity (that neato deer head silhouette is a piece of copper sheet -?- with a tiny, strong magnet on the back); and a pin from the opening of a ThinkGeek store (if you don't know ThinkGeek, I urge you to check it out: http://www.thinkgeek.com/):

There's a wee leather pouch necklace I'm guessing came from a Pow Wow PFD and her husband attended, and a PFD-crafted domed pendant with a fun octopus image:

PFD also sent along a Mickey Mouse sticker and another with the three Hitchhiking Haunted Mansion Ghosts, a pin from Disney World, a Tampa Bay Lightning (hockey team) magnet and a stress puck (you know, for squishing), and some seashells gathered along Florida shores.

And here are just a few pages from the album....

Each page has a different paper print background; this one is perfect for the harbor view pictures:

Alby knows I'm a fan of anything miniature and eagerly pointed out the holiday village of Disneyland-inspired buildings under PFD's tree:

He was excited to show me pictures of his tiger cousins (both real and botanical) at Busch Gardens:

Among the ephemera tucked in the album are maps of Busch Gardens and Disney World, and on the inside cover is a map of the part of Florida around which Alby traveled with phoenixfiredesigns, from Orlando in the east to Tampa in the west, with colored stars at the various places they visited and a key noting what was at each location -- what a great idea!

Thanks, phoenix, and most especially for being such a great host to Alby!

PS - The ThinkGeek pin is currently adorning the t-shirt of my official Timmy the ThinkGeek Monkey:

gozer - Your scrappy cat and mouse are so cute!  Adorable expressions! Your steampunk lady is very cool; it may just be the color scheme but she reminds me a bit of Rey! Smiley I really like the style of the second ATC too, with her hair flowing out of the frame. And oh my goodness I think the fox is the cutest of them all!!

rockingbearranch - Pretty trellis!  Much more natural looking than a store-bought one!  And hee hee, I was wondering for a moment about those mutant chives! ;P I love your fuzzy pillow cover, and glad they're comfy! Thanks for the extra info on your science project.  Awesome that you're involved with that!

bunny1kenobi - I commented in your project thread, but it's definitely worth noting again that that whole lab is just amazing!!  Awesome job!!

SBC - Those little piggies are soooo cute!!  I hope nobody mistakes them for real cupcakes and tries to eat them! Aww, a shame that dress didn't last, 'cause it's darling. The bunny combo is sooooo adorable, especially as a set! And a huge CONGRATS on that craft room!  I know how long you spent on it, and I'm sure you're going to LOVE having that space and all your stuff organized!  It'll make crafting so much more pleasant! I'm super jealous!

QueenHobo - Hee hee, experimental cooking is often how I roll as well.  I love pot pies, and that one looks tasty!  The Seahawks blanket is fantastic!!!  Looks like a ton of work, but so worth it! Very cool. Cute throwbacks as well!

Project Name: Pork Dish
Project Link:
Brief Description: I tried a new recipe from one of my Japanese cookbooks.  It was tasty enough, but took just barely under the half hour (squeezing in as a zap), and I think I could make something just as good in a third of the time, so I probably won't make it again. But if you're interested in giving it a try, here's my rough translation of the recipe:

300g thinly sliced pork (paper thin if you can manage! It's sold already cut this way in Japan)
4 slices of mild cheese, like mozzarella
1 clove garlic
1 packet shimeji mushrooms, separated
2 tomatoes
1 Tbsp soy sauce
salt, pepper, olive oil, flour

Dust both sides of the pork slices in flour, salt, and pepper.  Tear the cheese into smaller pieces and wrap each pork slice around a small square of cheese.
Mince the garlic and saute it in olive oil. When it begins to smell pleasant, add the pork and brown both sides.
Grate the tomatoes directly into the frying pan with the pork and simmer (this step was kind of odd to me. I tried it, but as expected, the skins didn't grate well and I had to tear them and throw them in. I think just chopping the tomatoes or using canned crushed tomatoes would be fine).
Add shimeji mushrooms, soy sauce, and salt and pepper to taste, and simmer until mushrooms are tender.
Serve over white rice.
