 That chickadee is adorable Acadian Driftwood. I really like your sketches! They have a nice style to them.  Wink

 I received from Spikefan last night. She sent me a very vibrant and fun monster card. I think he is really cute!

 Doesn't he have the sweetest little expression? Thanks so much Spikefan. I adore him.  Cheesy

Prompt: Red Alert - National Hobby Month
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points:-0-
Project Name: Curious Bunny ATC
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My favorite hobby besides sewing would have to be drawing and I think drawing slightly beats out sewing because I can do it at my desk at work. That is where this little guy got sketched out. I sent him to rockingbearranch in the January ATC swap.

 Hey guys! I got an AMAZING card from kosmicgirl today. I was so excited when she picked me because I have been a fan of hers for some time. She did NOT disappoint.  Grin I love this card. She picked my monster theme and this is her in her nieces monster hat.

It's actually a bit brighter but my flash kept leaving a glare.
 Love the card and thank you so much for it kosmicgirl!!!!!

Project Name: 1976 Shirt
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Not much scares me or creeps me out quite like getting really, really old. My friend, who is born the same year, is having a b-day next week and I made her this shirt. I want to make myself one too. Also, the shirt is long sleeved because the cold gives me the chills too! I stenciled this shirt and instead of painting the fabric paint on I dabbed it with my finger to give it a more uneven, vintage feel.
Project Picture:

Below is my cat Dahlia that did not like that I was spending time crafting instead of petting her.


Prompt: January - Brrrr

Project Name: 1974 Shirt
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: When the weather goes down so does the sleeve length. I always whip out my long sleeved shirts for the winter. This shirt is for my sister and is long sleeved to keep her warm. Another Brrr cold association is that it is cold to tell everyone how old she really is.  Wink Again I finger paint dabbed the paint on to make it look more vintage. I think it was more successful with the white paint.

Project Name: Ghastlies Patchwork scarf
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: The roads where icy and I couldn't leave my house last Wednesday so I used my time wisely and dug thru my scraps. Everything was from my stash.  Wink I am assuming that scarves were invented somewhere very cold to keep them warm and when I think about going somewhere cold a scarf is one of the first things in my bag.

I have one more but I am waiting on it to arrive....

Project Name: Cat Tub
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My neighbors cat likes me more. She hangs out at my house, looks in my windows and hangs out in the garden. I have been really worried about her being outside in the cold so before the last cold front came thru my Mom and I made her a bed for when she refuses to go back to the neighbors house. It's two plastic tubs with Styrofoam to insulate it and help it remain water proof. I also have a towel inside for warmth and an old dish towel to keep the breeze out. It doesn't look fancy but it is very practical and works! My Mom has two outside of her house and her cats love them. I would let me neighbors cat in but she isn't declawed and I have three declawed cats inside... plus a bunny.
Project Picture:

This pic shows the inside before the second tub was added. The Styrofoam  went all the way around. I filled in the gaps and added it to the top as well.

 This is the finished look. Not fancy but practical and it keeps her warm.

Brief Description: Bunny1kenobi, lindyv321 & I are all doing a Reading Challenge this year. I sent Bunny1 these bookmarks to help her along when she is reading actual books and not e-books.  Smiley They were inspired by her Pinterest board of bookmarks. These were done on marker board with Copics and covered with contact paper.

Project Name: The Bunny1kenobi necklace

Brief Description: Bunny1 made a joke about a necklace of her name a while ago and I got the supplies and meant to have it ready way before Christmas but then I ended up having to make it in December. Best laid plans.  Tongue But here it is. A bunny1kenobi necklace that I sent to her for our gift exchange. It was done with Copic markers.

Project Name: Yellow Bird
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I got a set of those Inktense Pencils that everyone is raving about and producing amazing art with. Mine, eh... not so much. I think I need to play with them more, use a different paper (maybe water color paper?) and lay them on thicker. I think I was light with them. I ended up adding some Copic markers. I think next time I will try layering too. Still learning with them but everyone else has had stellar results so I know its me. The ATC theme was unexpected animals with antlers (what a great theme!).

Research Project Name: Quilt for Dad  Cheesy
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I decided, very impulsively, that I was going to make my Dad a quilt for Christmas. He is always saying he is cold and sweating my Mom out of the house. I wanted to make him a quilt that would fit his beloved recliner. I wanted it to be long enough to fold up under his feet and wide enough to tuck into the recliner without hanging out over it too much.
 My idea was to make it sentimental so that he HAD use it.  Wink I made squares for people in the family including me, my Mom, my sister & her husband, my Dad's dog (she got two squares), Dad's cat (again 2 squares) and his mother who passed away and used to make quilts all the time.
 This ended up being a WAY bigger experience than I was ready for. I ended up custom painting many of the squares. You have no idea how hard it is to find non cartoon fabric of Bigfoot or UFO's (he loves both). Then I ended up custom painting the cat, dog, and my sisters dog and some Fox News squares cas he watches that ALL the time. I used flannel for the back to make it even warmer too.
 I found out my machine, which is a knock off brand that is about 12 years old, could not handle the binding so I fought with that for days and finally did some of it by hand.  Roll Eyes By the end of this project I wanted to rip it to shreds and set it on fire, but I think it was worth it. My Dad really liked it. Here is a pic of him with it, the dog jumped on him while I was taking the picture and it is nearly impossible to get a shot of him without the dog so I didn't fight it.  Tongue

 Whew! My first Research Project!!!! Grin

Project Name: Tacky Light Shirt
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I am like a lot of people on here. I don't really have a "hometown". I grew up partially in Germany where I was born but we moved around a lot. Sometimes I consider Bitburg my home town because I was born there, sometimes Pittsburg because that's where I went to school and was on my own for the first time. Other times I consider Richmond, where my Dad retired and I have lived the longest. I decided to go with Richmond. We have a long tradition of super tacky lights here. We are on a couple shows for it and have tours and a bunch of hoopla surrounding it. Last weekend I participated in the Tacky Light Run and decorated up a shirt for it. Next year I will do more. Some people where insane. It was a lot of fun. I had on some tacky head gear too.  Tongue

Project Name: Pink Cheetah Dress
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Egypt is one of my favorite of the ancient cultures. Not only could women own property there, they worshipped cats! Who could argue with that? If there was a time machine I would sign up for ancient Egypt! Amazing culture even if they did get help from aliens with the pyramids.  Wink Anyhoo, this dress celebrates the worship of cats in ancient Egypt.
