1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Play garden -- crafting mojo is back! on: May 22, 2015 05:01:19 PM
Thanks everyone!

Rackycoo the box it is in is one of those flat boxes produce comes in at costco. So not very big but not teeny tiny.  In the photo it is on a normal sized sofa cushion.

My nephews like it a lot, and my sister sent me a video where my almost-3-year-old nephew throws the strawberries (which are attached to the plant by velcro so they are "pickable") at her and says "Catch Mama!"  And she had to pretend to eat them.  Anyway, they like it. 

Things have been so busy at work I haven't had time to think of the next thing to make but with the three day weekend I have the crafter's itch!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Play garden -- crafting mojo is back! on: April 28, 2015 04:11:02 PM

Here is a photo of my first project (other than knitted dishcloths) since my wife was diagnosed with cancer in 2013.  She is in remission now and life is slowly returning to normal and my crafting juices are kicking back into gear . . . anyway, I found this awesome tutorial (http://www.abeautifulmess.com/.services/blog/6a00d8358081ff69e200d8354b1b2d53ef/search?filter.q=felt+garden) and decided I'd make the big-project leap.  I finished the other day and am very happy with the result.  I did not take good in-progress shots, but here is the finished product.  I added a sign to the box because it is for my nephews and they love to follow their grandpa (my dad) around his garden, which is a market garden called "Kimball's U-Pick."  His very classy advertising statement is "What are u picking?" You can't see it in the photo but that is on the sign Smiley

Excited to send it Friday and hopefully get some action shots when my sis gives it to the boys.  Yay, back in the game, and back on the boards!  Now to choose the next project . . . any suggestions?

Hello Everyone,

I am sorry to have been MIA.  A family emergency has become epic, and I have not had time to really be online or craft.  However I have received 3 awesome sets of journal prompts:
From Flip Flop:

I love the colors on the black/white/red one, and the abstract yet elegant design

From FairyHazeDesigns:

I like the whimsical drawings on the one that says to describe yourself through words and small drawings -- and the painting on the other is neat, sort of marbled

From Cygni:

The silhouette is so elegant and drawn with such exactness!

Thanks to all of you.  I will be trying to get myself together some pockets of time and emotional evenness (or at least a semblance of it) to create your prompts.  I really love the prompts I received and will reciprocate.  Things are not better but seem to have plateaued over the past two days, so I will hopefully do this soon.  I will stay in contact with our fearless leader.

Rock on!

I received two wonderful sets of prompts when I arrived home from a family emergency today.  I am emotionally and physically spent tonight but will post pictures and PM my group tomorrow after work!

It has been the busiest couple of weeks EVER here.  I have my supplies and am ready to start crafting . . . now to find a free moment!  (No worries, I have a weekend to myself coming up)

I am so excited about this, but feel behind the eight ball.  I need to get cards!  I do have some ideas . . .
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ratty old college sweatshirt . . . into alma mater memorabilia pillow! on: April 10, 2013 06:32:52 PM

It has been forever since I have posted anything (it has been forever since I have MADE anything) but tonight I turned my partner's 16 year old, ratty, college sweatshirt (all frayed around the neck and sleeves and several sizes too big) into Alma Mater memorabilia pillow fun!  I am sure this has been done 1,000s of times but the creation of this squishy trip down memory lane got my endorphins going and reminded me how much fun I have crafting Smiley



Thanks for looking and rock on!
