My friend loves to tell the story of how she almost hit this weird blue box when it materialized right in front of her Cleansweep!

I've been using my new stash already! The roofs on these inchie houses were all made with the lovely papers that kbrison sent me! Cheesy

273  Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall - Inchie houses in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: November 24, 2013 08:37:09 AM
I made this little village to practice inchie house techniques for the current swap. I drew out my own pattern for each one, mostly winging it! Wink

Winter was my first attempt - a basic shape, with a glitter snowstorm raging.

Spring is a round house, with little window scenes - see the kitty? The seed beads around the bottom are supposed to be flowers, but I don't know how well that idea translated.

Summer was actually the last house I made, when I was confident enough to play around with a little mudroom add-on.

And fall has a wee chimney! I also liked the round roof design.

Backside group shot:

And my very favorite detail:

All the windows glow in the dark!  Cheesy

I received from mariak today! She made me a very cool hoopla with one of my favorite quotes on it!

It's embroidered on Doctor Who fabric (where can I get this?!), and the prints are outlined in stitches as well.

Thank you again mariak, it's right at home in my craft room, with my hoops from Wizards_Pupil!

275  Time And Relative Dollars In Space in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: November 17, 2013 04:35:31 PM
Here's a TARDIS wallet that I made for the One Small Doctor Who Thing swap, the pattern is fairly simple, but I really like how it turned out!

The white parts are felt, and the rest is fabric marker.

I used a vintage button for the closure/door handle, which seemed appropriate. Smiley

The contrast fabric inside is a cool gray dot pattern:


For size reference -

I'm glad my partner liked it, and I hope she gets lots of use from it!

ooo I love that shadowbox!

OK, so I received from kbrison today, and I'm going to need a lot of pictures to show all my goodies, so prepare yourselves! She seriously stuffed that envelope.

First up, some beautiful large papers.

More great papers, doily, scans of vintage book pages, and collage sheets.

Wild turkey feathers! And really cool aluminum can cutouts (how did you do these?), and little papers with great textures.

More great textured papers, embossed papers (love these), many many gift tags, and paper cutouts.

These papers include handmade squares and music book pages.

A whole package of origami papers! Whoa! More old book pages, stamps, and collage pages.

Beautifully decorated gift tags! The marbled on is my favorite. Cheesy

I was so overwhelmed by this package, kbrison! You are amazing!

Class: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Rosemary wreath
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=428970.0

For my alchemy assignment, I created a circle without beginning or end, much like the Ouroborus symbol. I also concentrated on its theme of rebirth - when the wreath season is over, it will have a new life as tasty food. Smiley

278  Little rosemary wreaths in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: November 10, 2013 09:43:25 AM

For this project, I used shower curtain rings for the wreath base. They worked great! Just the right size for a small wreath, and the clear plastic was very unobtrusive.

I tied the rosemary sprigs on with hemp cord, which was strong and just sticky enough to hold. I gave each sprig two wraps before adding the next.

After making two or three, I decided that placing the sprigs along the outer rim (not the top edge) made the whole thing lie better.

And when they're done being a decoration, they can be food! Who doesn't love gifts like that. Cheesy

Challenge: DA - Drink in the Hog's Head
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Chai concentrate

November in Vermont - the perfect time to share hot drinks with friends. I made a batch of chai concentrate, which is then mixed half and half with milk and heated before serving. I usually buy the Oregon Chai concentrate, but I must say I love the results with this recipe! And I can tweak it however I want (I'm thinking a bit more ginger next time, and maple syrup!).

4 1/2 cups water
1 stick cinnamon
1 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, chopped
7 whole cardamom pods
2 whole star anise pods
10 whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon orange zest
10 bags of black tea
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vanilla

Boil the water in a medium saucepan, and add spices and teabags (not the sweeteners). Remove the pot from heat, and let it steep for 15 minutes. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh (I did it twice, the second time through cloth to take care of little bits of pepper), and stir in sugar, honey, and vanilla. Refrigerate the mixture if you're not serving it that day. To serve, mix 1 to 1 with milk and heat.

I love that artificial leg, blu!

Man I was just going through this gallery and realized I totally forgot to post pics of the fabulous cards that kosmicgirl sent me! I'm so sorry for the delay, because I really really love them.

Such cool textures on the gold one, and the funky vibe totally works for the red shrooms!

Thanks again for the great cards. Cheesy
