11  Candy stand in Completed Projects by CamOovas on: July 11, 2012 06:22:12 PM
I made this for bunny1kenobi in the Ongoing Pinterest Swap:

For size reference:

It took way longer to make than it should have, but I was pretty proud of how it turned out, and have enough leftover candy to make a few more.

This has been such a great swap, and I am so glad I joined!

From Solitary Cricket I received this amazing Maui hoop!  I never thought I was into hoops, but I am so in love with this that you may have changed my mind!

And a  photo scrabble pendant with Maui on one side and an "M" on the other. It would be cute if I could make her wear it, but I don't think that's going to happen Smiley

And from Ekio Art this cat plushie that I am also in love with:

and a huge vintage turtle pendant for my turtle collection:

Thank you everyone!  My creepy cat lady shrine is off to a great start!!!

Wow, what an amazing gallery! I am so glad I joined this swap.  I received from KriSmith and I am thrilled!   I asked for crafts inspired by my cat Maui, and I got a beautiful fabric/mixed media wall hanging:

and one of my other themes was tiny things, so she sent me a set of Maui-themed mini houses!

Finally!  I got my photos to load.  Sorry for taking so long to post them, it's absolutely no reflection on my excitement about receiving this package, because it is awesome!

First, hand sewn coasters and mug rug.... is that the right word?

Next, five of these cute little velcro pouches, all stuffed with local coffees and fancy chocolates!


and a close up of my favorite..... it's really hard for me to resist carrying this around like a three year old....

Next, a whole set of winterwear! I absolutely love the cowl!

Mini scottish pictures!  Are they shrinky-dinked?  Some are on magnets and some arent, so that I can use them as dollhouse artwork   Grin

And finally, a set of handmade cards with little crocheted sheep on them!

Thank you so much for a great swap, Thimbles71, I love everything!

I received the most awesome package from hgddm today!

First, a sewn pouch and a finger knit scarf, in one of my favorite colors.  I will definitely be using this pouch for rock collecting this summer:

The pouch came filled with these miniatures (I mentioned in my questionnaire how I love anything in miniature and would be thrilled with mini paper bags, so I got one Smiley )

Next, an old-timey desk with eyeglasses and a inkwell!

AND a china tea hutch with a book of poison!  Hgddm was concerned I might not like the poison book but I think it makes the whole hutch!

And a turtle inspired pendant on a chain:

And probably my favorite thing I have ever received in a swap so far!!

Why, you ask?  Because I asked for any sort of art inspired my cat:

and that is perfect!!

Thank you so much for being an awesome swap partner hgddm, I will gladly swap again with you anytime!

Wow, theseare looking great! AlwaysInMyRoom we are using the same house and you're giving mine a run for it's money!!  

Anyway, an update-

My work station Smiley

(my fish tank is not that green in real life.... not sure what's going on there!)

House #1

The chimney needs grout.... still trying to decide what to use.

And the inside hasnt gotten very far yet

House #2

I'd like a different floor in the map room, but I'm not sure what to do. Maybe just an area rug?

The bedroom, the glass squares will be a fish tank.  I originally wanted to have a hanging wooden boat bed like I've seen on pinterest, but I don't think that will translate to look as neat in miniature.

Uh oh:

Even worse:

I am so bad at finishing projects.  I get sick of looking at them and have too many ideas for one project, so I just start something brand new  Undecided

Anyway, the green one is going to be a travelers house, I decided, and the victorian one is going to be winter themed.  I don't really like the idea of *christmas* themed.... but a tree would look so good in that little nook on the bottom floor... I'm sure it will have to have a fireplace too, maybe some snowy/muddy boots and toboggans and stuff... Also christmas lights and snow.  I'm open to suggestions!  Also for my travelers house, I'm having trouble thinking of it as a whole theme rather than just a room.  Where would one find some tiny little artifacts to place around the house?  I think the owner is also interested in ships and astronomy.

Finally found my camera cord under the couch! 

From Gala_Apples:

From SilentMynerva:

And from bubblegum_phoenix:

In case you cant tell, those are little tiny embroidered sheep!

Apologies for the poor picture quality... I've already put of posting pics for so long I didn't want to wait another day for sunlight.

Thanks to all my partners!  I bought a 60 piece puzzle so I'm working on quite a few pieces myself.  This should take a while.  Smiley

A little late to the party, but here is how my house has been sitting for months:

Interior decorating is definitely not my forte, so I get frustrated really easy.  The hardest part is trying to make the whole house look cohesive
