1  Re: One Tiny Holiday Ornament Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by leslieyam on: October 18, 2013 07:45:30 AM
I have received from gerbilgal.  The adorable poodle on the ornament is my dog Fozzie.  This is our first Christmas with him and I am so excited to have this ornament to commemorate it.  Love the keychain too.  Thanks gerbilgal!

3  Commissioned Ornament in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by leslieyam on: December 16, 2011 12:49:24 PM
I was commissioned to make this Christmas ornament for a friend.  These are the instructions she gave me: "The couple likes dogs and they have a good sense of humor."  I thought it might be pushing the envelope too far to pose the dogs humping, so I went with tongue kissing instead.  Ha Ha  Wink

4  Prettying up the DVD shelf in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by leslieyam on: December 16, 2011 09:03:14 AM
My husband insists on having all of our DVDs on display (like trophies), while I would rather get rid of the boxes and put them in a book to save space and hide the ugliness.  Oh, well...you can't win them all.  So I decided to pretty it up a bit to make it more bareable.  I bought some wooden letters from Michael's and painted them red to work with the colors in our apartment.  Then I hot glued them to black wooden bases, so the words can be switched around.  Then I topped it off with some wedding photos.

5  Yarn Ball Christmas Wreath in Winter Holidays by leslieyam on: December 16, 2011 08:53:19 AM
I made this yarn ball wreath like many of the ones I've seen online, but I decided to go without the ornaments and just use the yarn balls.  I picked yarns with some sparkle to give it some umph.  After buying a bunch of the styrofoam balls as the base for the first bunch of yarn balls I decided to save some cash and use junkmail, masking tape, foil....whatever I could find for the rest.  They ended up looking exactly the same, so if I make another wreath like this I know I wont have to buy the styrofoam.

Close up

The back is a wooden base I bought at michaels and in the spirit of using things I already had, the hanging loop I actually cut a small piece from my wonder woman costume lasso of truth.  haha

I am really OCD about symetry, so this project really challenged me to go random with the placement and the color choice.

6  Felt Christmas Bunting (pic heavy) in Winter Holidays by leslieyam on: December 16, 2011 08:18:01 AM
I made this Christmas bunting out of craft felt, a few odds and ends.  I used green bias tape along the top.  I'm pretty proud of it and now I have something that I can reuse year to year....until I get tired of it I guess.

here are some close ups

Questions and comments welcome  Smiley

7  Fabric Christmas Wreath in Winter Holidays by leslieyam on: December 06, 2011 08:31:35 AM
I made this fabric Christmas wreath out of scrap fabric, polyfil, ribbon, felt, red bells.  The red cardinal is an old beloved, handmade felt tree ornament that I snipped the loop off the top and perched (hot glued) to my new wreath. 

I need to find a more sophisticated way to hang it....right now I'm using a paper clip haha!

I received from VampAracely actually a few weeks ago, but there was a mix-up with my camera cord.  Sorry about the delay.

A crocheted pouch in wonder woman colors and a crocheted pink wash cloth with the supergirl symbol.  She also threw in a couple of wonder woman comics and a wonder woman shopping bag.  Thank you.

9  Re: Halloween Stuff a Small Priority Mail Box Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by leslieyam on: October 12, 2011 04:56:08 PM
I just got my package from MissingWillow.  Its chock full of awesome stuff!  On to the pictures...
Here's the whole thing together (there was also a small canvas not pictured).  The soaps are hard to see in the pic, but the tombstone is jolly rancher scented (yum) and the fall leaf is harvest scented. 

Here is a close up of the tea wallet

Here is a close up of the vintagey witch necklace

Great package!  I am totally in the Halloween mood now.  I'm finishing up my crafts and should have mine out soon.  Yay!

Sorry I am so late in getting to this, but here are the crafts I made for Poineer9!  First a fun monster magnet Smiley  Poly clay is my fave!

Next a fun monster in the dark tin with feet!

Here is a little button I put inside the tin:)

And finally.  My first mini art quilt!

Here is a close up of the eyes.  They are made of poly clay.

And here's a close up of the tentacles.  They have little rubber rings sewn on with nylon threads.
