I love him. He's so cute and red and happy that he just makes me smile.  I think I might like your Gallant better than the regular cousins. Smiley

Awh. Absolutely adorable. reminds me of when I used to make little plus toys out of old scraps I never used when I sewed (although mine were...rather ugly...deformed cats, but still) I love yours. =) You could make a rainbow of Arthurs.

This looks absolutely fabulous. And considering the extra stress metallic floss tends to bring with it, you did an amazing job. If it were me I would've ripped it to pieces by the time I got to the heart. =)

I love it! I can just picture you making like...a whole little arsenal of adorable felt cakes and cupcakes. Great job, especially for your first time. I'm envious. =)

I love these!! I'm really liking the big blue guy stalking out the train. How big are they all? These are such a great idea. Awesome job on them =)

This is absolutely beautiful. I've always wanted to make a visual journal, but've never been brave enough to do so. What kind of book did you use to make yours? Just an ordinary sketchbook?

And wow. I'm in love with basically every single page in here. I really do like the 'but you could win a rabbit' page. It's pretty darn awesome. The whole thing is real cool. =)

Awhh! Apparently I've uncovered a hidden obsession with people who craft house-themed things. And I'm loving how even though it's halloween-ey, it's adorable in it's own way.  Tongue I think my favourite is the communications center. Or the trick shop. Awesome job!

Another great, super-easy way to fill your place full of 'art' is to make 'found art'. Basically anything will look amazing when you put it in a frame- just make sure that you mount whatever you want to showcase behind something (construction paper or scrapbooking paper works great for this) - black goes nice with almost everything. We decorated my friend's house with tons of these frames, and we used things like pressed flowers, old coins, a five dollar bill, pieces of grass, an old letter of her mothers...the ideas are endless and they look fabulous.

And if you do have a digital camera, a very, very handy option is your macro button (most standard digitals now have it on them) It's the button that looks like a little flower. It lets you take really amazing close-up pictures of say, things like berries, leaves, flowers, your eye, etc.

And then just a little side-idea that you  might want to try and look into- colouring pages. I've found that colouring what's called a mandala can look really nice framed in a room. They're very intricate pieces of circular art that have a real interesting history behind them. And they're very fun and relaxing to colour. =P There are plenty of websites full of freely-printable mandalas you can play around with and colour.

Hope that helps you a bit. =)

Another way to colour paper, that I found tends to work pretty well is to use kool-aid, or drink mix packages (I'm from Canada, so I'm not entirely sure if you guys get kool-aid there. I'm just assuming you do=P ). They usually come in some pretty cool, bright, pretty colours, and they maintain the colour, even once the paper is dry (although when you're mixing the colours, you'll want to put the whole thing in if you want it really colourful).

And then food colouring definitely works, too.

I think you've just inspired me!
It's such a simple project, and yet it's so pretty. Great job! Reminds me of when I was little, and we used to make little animals out of yarn dipped in glue, wrapped around corks with toothpicks in them...
