Um, yeah.  This rocks (in more ways than one).

Johnny Rotten, and strawberries. . . could that go somewhere?   hmmmm.

Yeah!!! Bubble butts.  I couldn't stick pins in him either.  You did too good of a job making him precious, i guess.

Yeah!  I love monsters.  Those tiny, tiny candies/cookie are super intense.

Great job.  I am excited to have some really heavy competition in the felting challenge this time!

How did you attach those feathers?
The texture of feathers goes beautifully with the texture of felt.
I never would have thought of that  Smiley

I wouldn't have either - but here is the inspiration, I think you'll see right away it had to be done this way.


I just glued them on . . . they seem to be staying ok.  Probably better ways to do it, but how???
16  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Monster Challenge 09 - Iggy, the Valentine Monster on: February 10, 2009 05:08:32 PM
Generally, I don't care much for Valentine's Day, but if it involves monsters!!!  Need I say more?  So, without further ado, please meet Iggy, the Valentine Monster.

He is cute and sweet, and swoops down on Valentine's day like this. . .

This is his front:

This is Iggy in profile:

This is his back:

He is made of wool, all needle felted except for his tail, which is wet felted around a wire, so it's poseable.  His wings also have wire in them, and he has little wire feet.  He does have some feather additions by his ears, his feet, and on the outside of his wings.  I hope he still qualifies for the challenge. 

In one last shameless attempt to ensure his qualification, Iggy offers you his heart. . .

I know some of the photos are fuzzy.   I may felt, but I sure enough don't take photos well.

I am planning on entering, my little guy is done, I just need to figure out my new camera!  But, he has some feathers added on to him, is this going to disqualify him?  except fo the feathers (and some wire) he's all needle/wet felted.

I've gotten in trouble with the word "pants" since living in England.  To my mind they are trousers, but here in England they mean underwear, or panties.  I'm sure I am endlessly embarrassing friends by telling them I need new pants, or that I was working in the garden and got a hole in my pants.  lol

Not craft related, but I love this.  I had a Scottish boyfriend for awhile. So I went to visit him, and his friends were having this big long conversation about playing "torch" tag when they were kids and visiting some friends in the States once.  And I was like, isn't that dangerous?  And they said, well, I guess if you trip in a hole or something.  And I said, well, what if someone gets burned?  That sounds really unsafe!

My boyfriend looks at me and says "torch means flashlight."  (Not, apparently, large flaming sticks.)  Oh god, how moronic.

I agree with discussing this with your doctor.  Anti-depressants are very complex medications that interact with each person's chemical balances in a unique way.  What works for one, may not work for another. 

Make sure your doctor understands how important your craft is to you, and that finding a medication that will work both to make you feel better generally AND allow you to keep your craft is of the utmost importance.  There are a lot of great doctors out there who will get this right away and work with you till you can come up with a good solution.  Make sure that you have one of those great doctors.  You (and all of us) MUST be our biggest advocates when it comes to our health.

Other than that, try different stuff (I would say), and if it works for you, great!  If you try something that doesn't work for you, well, that's fine too.  At least you will be doing something.  Then try something else.  If you begin to feel frustrated/more depressed/angry with your writing or any new thing, walk away from it for awhile.

Also, it may sound stupid, but exercise to an appropriate & comfortable level seems to be of great benefit to many people.  It helps to modify the way chemicals are produced, released, and accepted in the brain, so it might be worth a shot. 

Mostly, though, do what works for you and keep chugging.  EVERYONE has downturns in their lives.  It is normal, and no-one should be feel alone or embarrassed if they're having a downturn.  Just posting on craftster is such a healthy step!  Way to go self-awareness.

God, this sounds hopelessly social workery.  I need a new job. . .  Tongue

Actually, I kinda like that they don't match up perfectly.  Considering the batty hearts design is, by itself, a little "off,"  I think it merely tends to support that whole unique/not quite right theme.  Of course, maybe that's not at all what you were going for!  Then ignore this.

But this one, at least, likes it as is.
