Ooh. thanks. I see it all now. I could see them all blending together as one package (because I suppose pretty much everything on there is kawaii!) - I suppose I could have looked it up.. but.. you know Wink

No worries, I probably should have put that in my post.  Everything does blend together anyhow.

superhooker is having technical problems with posting pics, so she asked me to post my pre-send photos of the package I sent her.  Smiley  I can add in some notes on the crafting methods later but I've got to run off to work in a minute. now with a few crafting comments Smiley

Theme: antique maps/charts/stamps/books

item: small shrine to geo/heliocentrism:

The spinning globe and frame were lucky thrift store finds, there is a geocentric map of the solar system in the back and an oversized stamp of galileo, plus a shinky dink astrolabe. The charms were a lovely gift from atsuko's sister.

item: decoupaged vintage travel case (covered with maps and lined with a map fabric)

Mod podge, real maps, map printouts from strangemaps.wordpress.com, antiquing gel, and varnish. I'm not that good at decoupage so it is kinda wrinkly.

theme: teacups and teapots

item: embroidered napkins

A pair of irish linen napkins (another thrift store find), I swapped for the custom teapot patterns with aeronberry over in STS.

item: "tea at hogwarts" set (pre-postal service mutilation  Roll Eyes)

with sorting hat felted teapot cozy

The ceramics were thrifted pieces, I drew the coat of arms stuff on with Porcelaine 150 pens (draw, dry, cure in oven).  The teacups were a major casualty of the postal service.  The hat is shaped to fit (sortof) over the teapot, but is also the right size to wear on your head Smiley

theme: forest friends/birds

item: birdie mobile

The branches are wet felted over wire, I made up the birdie pattern (sewn).

item(s): needle felted critters

Hope you can tell what these are - raccoon, fox, and chipmunk. I mostly wet felt and don't do much needle sculpting.

item: owlie stuffie

From a 1972 Burda WOF magazine pattern.

theme: anatomy/body pats

item: batik project bag (liver and lungs)

The major front and back panels were batiked, the bottom and handles and trim were a chopped up pair of men's jeans, I added cases to the lining to hold knitting or crochet needles. The bag is from a Vogue pattern.

item: felted eyeballs

Wet felted, the irises(irii?) were needle felted on.

item: finger in a jar (sculpey)

Umm...sculpey fingers...about the limits of my polymer clay skills.

item: skeleton batik tee (for her DS)

Soy wax batik, procion dye (same as the project bag)

theme: trees/ferns

item: felted wallhanging

Mostly wet felted, some needle work to attach the leaves. There are some acorns that I added after I took this photo.

item: patchwork pillowcase with sun print fern

The print was done with Setacolor transparent paints, the real fern leaves were courtesy of lapoli.  You basically lay out the objects on the fabric while the paint is wet and set it in the sun - the light sets the paint except under the objects, leaving a print.

gots to run for the bus now!
