1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Rick and Morty Swap (or Adult Cartoon Swap) on: May 27, 2017 11:40:01 AM
I just recently found Rick and Morty and it's just the Nihilistic show I've needed in my life. Anyone interested in a R&M swap or Adult Cartoon Swap (Futurama, family Guy, etc)?
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Art and Craft Tool Assemblage Piece (practical artwork) on: April 17, 2017 09:59:24 PM
I made this for. Blupaisan in the assemblage art swap. She requested something useful due to limited space. I was excited for this request because I've been having my brother save all the baby treat puff containers for me and I have dozens!

I had a completely different idea to do a mosaic but once I started doing that I realized I just didn't have the patience for it. I think I got so angry I went to bed early. Maybe one day I'll actually do a mosaic haha.

So I decoupaged strips of gelli prints all around, glued a wooden bobbin and plaque to the bottom. Painted, nailed and glued all this stuff to it. I actually glued to many things and had to rip some stuff off. Luckily I didn't ruin any of the paper underneath.

This is definitely one of my favorite things I've ever made!!!

What do you think!?

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Custom Frankenstein Mickey and Bride of Frankenstein Minnie Tsum Tsums on: April 17, 2017 02:02:19 AM
Made these for a friend that saw the Frankenmickey tsum for the 13 Days of Halloween swap. I used actual "official" tsums for the bases and worked the elements on top. I painted the faces and added the stitches and clothes. I'm planning on some more horror themed tsums coming up next!

What hat do you think?
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lots of TM Patches: Cats, Eels, Mutants and More - With Progress Pics on: April 14, 2017 01:08:20 AM
I made these for the recent TM Patch Swap and a personal swap.

I knew i needed to do a lot of planning before actually starting on all these TM patches, so I made some quick little sketches to get my process started. As you can see one of the patches didn't make it to completion.

I cut out some of the designs in felt.

Choose my fabrics and got them ready to sew.

Sew around the edges and cut off the excess fabric and batting.

Fold down the endges and stitched all around. I prefer doing this straight stitch instead of the traditional whip stitch (?) because it is easier for me.

These were made for noooitaremybirthday.

The budgie was my favorite because of the teeny tiny tm patch i stitched onto it.

These were made for roler.

The eel was my favorite because of the 3d eel and the pun.

These were made for a art friend of mine not on craftster. The poison apple was supposed to go in this group also but I didn't like how it turned out.

The mutant cat was my favorite of all!

Ok so time for some glamour shots!

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My Favorite Failed Prototype on: March 16, 2017 02:03:01 AM
I took a break from working on my projects for the TM Patch swap to stitch myself something.

This is inspired by the suuuuuppppeeeerrrr depressed android, Marvin, a character from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I used the version of him from the old TV show instead of the movie just because I knew that one first. I might do more from the story to go along with this, or make more along the lines of mental heath/depression as a sort of therapy. I've been feeling really down down down lately so it's nice to kind of think turn that into something more positive.

What do you think?
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fairy Display on: March 01, 2017 03:14:02 AM
Ok so I used half of an old wooden box, vintage end pages from a map book, vintage butterfly illustrations, reproduction consumer catalog illustrations from the late 1800 - early 1900, holographic nail art wraps, dollar store skeleton, glitters and microballs, some iridescent paints and glass bottles. Managed to make this all from stash so that's something.

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / An Un-Fandom Swap on: February 24, 2017 08:38:20 PM
Do you have a favorite movie, band, TV show, book, video game, etc that doesn't really get a lot of Fandom or crafty love?

Maybe we could do a swap where you list a few things that your a big fan of, but that isn't in the popular fandoms like Harry Potter, Marvel, Star Wars. And your partner makes ya something to show off your love for whatever it is.

Like I'm a HUGE fan of Stargate TV shows but there isn't much merch or handmade items around. That makes me saaadddd. Lol

Hope that makes sense? Who would be interested?
