I need to get my post count up, but I'd love to join the swap.. my first ever! I'd really like to do some embroidery, applique, felt stuffed toys or a collage picture.. or an intarsia knitted picture..

I'll have to think about it!

I am so in!  Check out the nesting doll theme tin Bigmouth made me for the Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 5:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169868.msg1790353#msg1790353

I'd love to do anything along the lines of nesting doll images/secret compartment dolls, etc.  I think they're so charming.

Thanks for all those great links everyone!  I love the idea of an altoid tin, and those cell phone cozies are adorable!  Mmm... I wonder if I could pull together a snow globe...

(Bear with me, I haven't read all the replies, so I may be repeating someone.)

Well, there are actually a LOT of different types of Russian dolls, so really saying "Russian Dolls" isn't the same as saying "Matrioshka". I'm fairly certain that they aren't actually originally a Russian doll, I'm fairly certain they got popular in the olden days and everyone just thinks they're Russian. The actual dolls are usually made of wood, painted and then coated with a layer of protective gloss. It may be difficult to find, but I'm sure they sell the unpainted shells somewhere on the internet or in a speciality crafts store. For paint - regular wood paint and gloss.

I bet a good many of ya'll who read this will go. Duh, lady, I know that. But you know, just stating the obvious for anyone who doesn't know it all. Cheesy

Oh... this an interesting idea. Thanks for pointing it out koi. Smiley I could see either painting a set of blank wooden nesting dolls (with treat inside) or crafting on the theme....

for those that would like to paint there own nesting dolls or Matrioshka I found these on ebay when I was searching ... would make a swap like this much easier if you had the blanks...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120126633591&ssPageName=MERCOSI_VI_ROSI_PR4_PCN_BIX_Stores&refitem=300115176191&itemcount=4&refwidgetloc=closed_view_item&refwidgettype=osi_widget

this is just a few if you search for blank nesting dolls or blank Matrioshka you should be able to find more...

the swap sounds like a great idea.... I wish I had enough posts and time to join one right now... Smiley
