I claim Scarlet_Nights for a needle felting kit! This is my first claim.


Hi my name is Val and I am from MS- USA. Have one daughter aged 9, and a maltipoo, LilyRose.  I have been a member of Craftster for a long time, but took a break and am happy to be back!

Some of our favorite things include: The outdoors, our paddle boat, fishing, hunting for fairies, flowers, wind chimes, singing, crosses, seashells, Native American (Im part Cherokee and Black Foot) & Scotch/Irish items, unusual jewelry, my guitar, Fender Guitars, and all forms of art, music: Def Leppard, Aerosmith, Buckethead,

Dislikes: Scary looking stuff, skulls, zombies, spiders, snakes, anything with an overpowering fragrance.

Allergies: Cats, asbestos, cinnamon, and wool (if its something worn) I have cystic fibrosis and my kiddo has asthma symptoms and RA (allergy issues make it flare up even more) , so please use caution and keep our allergies in mind. Its super-duper appreciated!

   Colorful/Whimsical Wind chimes for our patio (inspirational examples below)
(spoon fishy themed)
(recycled wine bottle)

   A flag to pin on the awning of our paddle boat. Boats name is Delphina. Boat is blue and white.

   Home-made soaps. (Mild ones that are ok for hands. Love oatmeals and lemon verbena, or soothing scents.)

   Unusual long necklaces, beaded, charms, whimsical, unique, surprise me!

   Sleeping bag for my daughters American Girl Doll (her favorite colors are bright pinks, purples and turquoise)

   Crochet mermaid tail blanket for my daughter. Can give length if you are interested.

   Humorous Kitchen Towels (embroidered, or screen printed with sayings like Kale Yeah!, I love you more than coffee, but not always before coffee , Many have eaten here and gone on to lead normal lives

   Scripture Kitchen Towels ( Acts 2:46,  Psalm 46:5, or any Bible verses that speak to you)

   Wall art/embroidery/paint of Lamentations 3:23 to have a friendly reminder for my bedroom. My room is deep brown,  a crisp sage green, and sea/teal blue colors, with accents of cream and coral (color reference in this link) https://www.etsy.com/listing/201021688/bible-verse-printable-scripture-art?ref=shop_home_active_18

   Braceletslove bracelets. 7 inch usually works best for me. Love bangles, beads, all sorts.

   Def Leppard poster or Def Leppard art for my music room.

   Guitar Pick earrings.

   Unusual looking or collector (bands, or locations) guitar pics for framing

   Adjustable Guitar Strap with the word Talutah embroidered on it in red. (my guitars name)

   Fairy poppet for kiddo

   Little house on the prairie bonnet like laura ingalls wilder wore for kiddo. (if it fits an adult it will fit her)

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Prayer/ Bible Scripture quilt block swap? (done before?) on: October 16, 2014 11:49:45 AM
Hello all, I haven't forgotten about this, but I had to put it on the back burner due to my health issues. (I have lupus, & cystic fibrosis, among other things, and both have been flaring up).
So, if someone else wants, and has time, to organize, please do so. I know this will be a fun swap once it takes off! Smiley
once I am better, I plan to get back into the swapping game, just having to hold off for the time being.

After a long wait to receive due to illness (on my part), and camera problems, I now am so pleased to introduce the poppet and goodies that I received!
Here is (named by my kiddo who totally adores her!) Maddie Sewbringas Hatter!

Isnt she AMAZING! I am such a lucky gal and having to remind myself that I have to share with my kiddo! haha
The photo doesn't do her justice, really, she is utterly amazing. Her little fingers are individual and are able to be positioned to hold her sweet needle and scissors! Her dress is totally gibbous inspired with details of measuring tape, and she came with her own pin cushion, thread spool and needles and loads of other goodies! (she knew my kiddo is really into geography and collects magnets and post cards from the places we have swapped!) Oh and her hair feels soooo good & her eyes have the neatest little colored flecks in them that were difficult to photograph but take my word, so pretty!

Kiddo has deemed the fabric for her growing stash and now has a new sewing buddy to accompany her on her efforts as she learns how to work my machine.
I wish all could have seen her eyes at the chocolate whales! she was so tickled as she had just completed making a diorama and report paper for her science project on salt water habitats! (featured the otter- I will have to post a pic of that too cause she did an awesome job!)
Lol, also notice one of the candy packages is already open, as she just couldn't wait till after I took the photos to try them out! haha Cheesy
Puamelia, I have decided that you are a poppet wizard Grin ...I am in awe of your talent and so thankful to have been paired with such an amazing, and kind partner!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sent today. Sorry for the hold up. She kept trying to sew herself while I was away at school and work. Her needle wasn't very sharp. Hope you like it I'mSewSilly!

I know we (Kiddo and I) will adore her! Thanks so much Puamelia! Cant wait to see her! Smiley

oh my love all the Elsa and Anna goodies!
Amazing job with detail! I can totally see her twirling with her hands up making her ice castle and singing "Let it Go!" Cheesy

My kiddo doesn't need to see this cause she will be asking if I can make one as she is going to be Elsa for Halloween this year haha  Grin
She may decide she needs a side kick! lol

Thanks for the nice comments gals!

Puamelia, I am so glad you like your sea dragon! Smiley I had such a difficult time deciding upon what to make cause you had numerous great inspirational  ideas, so I ended up wrapping several into one! She is the only sea dragon I have ever made, and since I don't use patterns, I don't know if I could make her again! haha Cheesy
I hope your exams go wonderfully Tuesday!  Grin

what a great ami Victorian gal! Such wonderful details!

I cant wait to see the gallery blossom with more awesomeness this week! Grin
