11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tiger Anthro Plush on: September 08, 2010 11:15:23 PM
This is one of my earlier plush creations, from about 2000 or so. But I love him so much I really wanted to share him. This is Dagdul, from a story I was writing waaaaay back in highschool. When dinosaurs roamed the earth still, it feels like. Anyhow, he was made without any pattern, just following my nose. His fur was all white and I hand-dyed it after he was stuffed so I'd have the pattern correct. He was soggy for awhile. His hair is wool, all un-twisted and stitched to his head strand by strand, I kid you not. His staff is wood and beads with a few feathers, and he has a bag made of felt. I'm sure he's got stuff in there but I can't remember what I gave him. lol He's wearing a loincloth of similar fabric to his bag. His limbs are button jointed so he's fully poseable, and his tail is wired. As I recall, he's about 2 ft tall when he stands, which he can do on his own if you don't jostle him. I gave him to a friend as a thank you gift, and I kind of miss him now. lol
12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Handmade Journal--big pix on: September 08, 2010 10:56:39 PM
I have no idea if this is quite the right section. This item sort of fits into so many sections, actually. I recently started making handmade journals. The covers are the thing I'm most proud of, since they're done using the Teesha Moore method to start, but I think mine have a very different character than hers do. Mine include handpainted squares along with the quilted parts. The designs are all mine.

I'll post some pix below, with most of the details on the photos.

This last one is nearly done. It just needs the pages laced in with ribbon, and a couple finishing details on the cover, such as the button closure.
13  CANADA / Ontario / Pagan/Goddess/Spirituality ATC Exhibition and Swap on: August 31, 2010 08:58:40 AM
During the GoddessCraft Bazaar I'm organizing this year, I'd like to introduce the concept of ATCs to the community as a way of making bite-sized creations to trade and share. Therefore I have decided to hold a big ATC display and swap as part of this event.

Theme: Anything pagan/gods and goddesses/spirituality-related
Number: 3/3, 6/6 or 9/9
Postage Cost: $1 US per 3 (so $2 for 6 or $3 for 9, or the equivalent in Canadian dollars if you're local)
Due Date: November 1st, 2010

Contact me through the website below for my address when you're ready to send. I'll keep a list on the site of arrivals and pledges.

Submission Guidelines: All ATCs submitted should follow the ATC standards for size and format. You may use any media so long as it isn't super-heavy or super-thick. All ATCs should be submitted in plastic trading card sleeves for protection. Conceal your return postage fees well inside the envelope and be sure to include a large label with your return address. Do not send an envelope, we will supply these. Do not send small return address labels as they cannot be used. Do not send US postage stamps as they cannot be used from Canada. Anyone who doesn't send return postage will have their returns held until this is resolved. Just to clarify, this is a SWAP. You will not be receiving your own cards back.

This call will be put out to international artists as well, in hopes to see a great mix of artwork for the display.

I will also be displaying some of the other types of mail art I've collected over the years as an example of some of the things we could make in our classes this winter.

14  CANADA / Ontario / Do you make items with a pagan/goddess/spirituality theme?--Toronto on: August 31, 2010 08:56:30 AM
GoddessCraft Bazaar is a new, smallish event with room for 10-15 vendors. It will be taking place Saturday, November 6th, from 10am to 4pm. Tables are $20-30 depending if you make a donation to the auction or raffle basket (see website for details). Location is 109 Vaughan Rd, upstairs in the Green Man lounge. Refreshments will be sold on site as well.

Applications and rules are available from the website, and can be submitted in person at the Occult Shop at 109 Vaughan Rd, or contact heather@goddesscraft.ca for alternate arrangements.

This is our first season and expect participation from the wider pagan community. This event will be the flagship for more crafting events, including classes and other sales throughout the year. Help us get off to a great start!
