when my mum got her cataracts done she really liked seeing details again like all the leaves in the trees and stuff.  also she was amazed at how different her watercolors and crafts projects looked when she could actually see them well.

Prepare Yourselves for most excellent tininess!
I should have posted right when I got this box last week- I have myriad excuses, but I don't want to waste time, what CamOovas made for me was all so wonderful and perfect. It really deserves to be admired and is all hand made! All the miniatures are traditional dollhouse 1" to 1' scale- the detail and craftsmanship is out of this world.

This is my lovely Bunny, so CamOovas made me a wee needle felted version

She made Bunny a little home too, replete with a tiny bag of pine chips and a tiny bag of rabbit poop (for the life of me I couldn't get the bag to photograph- I love the minuscule turds too much to take out and lose!) also a bowl and carrot to munch! The whole box is about the size of a saltine.

She made a tiny wooden jewelry box with working, lined drawers. One drawer had a few bars of soap inside. It is so small! Smaller than a book of matches and much more delicate.


She made a crate, and some grapes

Two loaves of bread, with a purchased knife and plate, and a basket of rolls


And a table for everything to go on!

I took these pictures in my dollhouse scale theater, and I am sorry if they are a little blurry! Everything was wonderful and generous! I hope you enjoy yours, CamOovas and that we can swap some other time!

Ah crap, I made the ears wrong!  I was wondering if they should be loppy or standy, I guess I chose wrong. Smiley

Check out everything I got from Jessarama!!

First, some dollar store finds (I am SO jealous of your dollar store!)



(I told her I have been looking for tanks/cages to make little scenes in, these are to disassemble.  Jessarama, how did you disassemble yours, did you microwave it first or something?  I can't pull them apart!)

An octopus tank!! This is so cool.


A goldfish in a tank and a handmade diary! These are my favorites.



She even wrote in the diary!!


A mounted moose head!  Did you make this?  Genius!

Thanks so much jessarama, this was a great swap.

And finally, check out my newly built house:





As you can see, I need do to many more mini swaps. Smiley

I bought the pattern from halfadozen on etsy, check it out: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24919514

Also I just thought I'd throw a note in here that there is already interest in another swap:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317142.0

What a wonderful package!
I dont know if i have ever seen such neat things at my dollar store. I really like the aquariums! especially the goldfish tank!
And Jessarama, did you make the moose head?

CamoOvas, what a neat house! We will have to do another mini swap to help you fill it up again sometime in the near future! Grin


Well, EVeryone has now sent and received...and should now have their completed feedback in their profiles  Grin
Thanks to everyone for doing such a wonderful job! YAY Grin

I got a cheap plastic moose, and cut his head off, flocked and mounted him. I then felt bad about my barbarism, so I filled the diary with the story of his life as a magical, immortal moose- head! I really like the idea of a foam core dollhouse. It was a challenge to get the aquarium apart. I just gently hacked at it with my exacto!
