I got my second unloved creature surprise in the mail today! Keeping with the unloved ocean critters theme, I got this really cool altered tin from WaveLight23478:

She decided to craft an octopus in his environment because her fourth grade students said "octopus was one of the grossest and biggest pests in the ocean". Talk about unloved! I hope they all learn about how amazingly cool these critters are. Smiley Anyway, I love this little tin. I feel like I'm peeking into a tide pool, and I love the sponges and sea star in there too! Thanks WaveLight!!!

Wow, I leave for one weekend and I have 3 pages to catch up on! Everything so far is fabulous, but that mola mola looks soooo realistic that I was seriously confused when I saw the picture and it was laying in a flower bed! And The axolotl in a jar is brilliant!

BUT prepare to be super jealous of the tiny critter I got from La Chapa:

It's a nudibranch! A Chromodoris magnifica to be specific. Smiley I LOVE HIM. You might be able to tell from my avatar that I have a bit of a thing for these lil' sea slugs. His stitches are so tidy and perfect and his little gills are so cute and that little face... Okay, they don't really have faces but whatever I like it. I also love that he's a tiny critter for the purposes of the swap but he's a giant among his own kind. Thank you La Chapa!!!!

I actually finished an embroidery project this month! Wooo!

Here is the bluebird I stitched for my grandmother's birthday. I guess technically it doesn't count as hoopla because it didn't stay on the hoop - it was added to a handmade tote bag. But I finished a thing! I feel accomplished!  Grin

I appliqued some scrap fabrics with interfacing, and used back and satin stitches to tack everything down nicely and add details. Here's the finished bag:

Ooooh, I get to start the gallery!  Cheesy

I got my lovely art yesterday, and my mystery sender was geekgirl1000100:

This is done with gelatos, ink, and sharpie. I love all of the textures going on here. So cool! Thanks for the art geekgirl!

Check out this fantastic card I got from fatewineroses!

If you think that tiny crocheted robin is cute, check out this owl! Another amazing spikefan creation. Smiley

I love him! Thank you!

Okay, my sincerest apologies Blu, for being so slow in posting the awesomeness you made me. Everyone, I wish you could see this in person - it's a flipbook that Blupaisan made!

If I was fancy enough to understand how to make a little GIF I would. It's fantastic! The hawk picks up the snake, who looks around and says "Look Ma, I'm flying!", and then looks back at who's carrying him and says "Oh..."
I'm in awe at the detail in each and every hawk drawing! Blupaisan says this is her first flip book, and color me impressed!
Thank you!

Oh, and yes the kestrel was done in watercolor with ink details. Loving the rest of this gallery!

Sorry to hear about all of the scary emergencies. Here are some birds to make everyone feel better. A Gyrfalcon and a Barred Owl from the place I volunteer:


In other news, I'm still crafting!

I got my last prayer flag too! And I've been a total bum and should have posted it days ago, but I've been knocked flat by a gross cold. Anyway, here it is!

Also made by Holistic Knitter. Fantastic chain stitch! And sparkles!

And the lot of them together. Great swap!

I love that Be Calm flag! It's a lot like the one I got from rscowtown!

I love that it reminds me of the ocean - I have a lot of laughter-filled memories there! The beads are nice touch too, and the colors are amazing.

And here's the next flag, this one's from stellato_escuro!

A snail is the perfect mascot to encourage me to "trust"! Wink The details of the shell are awesome! I love the purple sparkle too.

Thank you both!
