1  Jack Skellington, from pumpkin king to sock toy! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by redrinnie on: October 18, 2011 05:49:21 AM
So I recently did my very first swap!  I was a part of the Sock Monkey/Critter swap.  After reading my partners questionnaire (... and her profile, lol) I decided a standard monkey wasn't quite what I wanted to do.

And Jack Skellington was born!

Jack is made of two tube socks and is about 18" tall.  He's fully pose able since his body is fully wired.

I ran into a few snags along the way... like making him look skinny and ethereal.  Kinda tough with a sock but I think he came out rather well!

Hope everyone likes him as much I as liked making him Smiley

So I'm finally uploading pics of my amazing package from Jexxican!  I didn't get any pics of the unwrapping... Because, well, I was too excited to take my time. LOL!

Meet Bradford and Olivia.

We spent a lot of time getting to know each other yesterday.  However, I soon learned that Bradford is just crazy for Olivia.  I was pretty much ignored while the two enjoyed their fresh romance.

It wasn't long after their arrival that a game of hide and seek ensued.  And being the gentleman that he is, Bradford always let Olivia win.

As though she wasn't bananas about him already, Bradford decided to step it up with pony ride.  Olivia had a difficult time keeping balance (what with her beautiful dress) but Bradford helped keep her steady.

Because Bradford had given Olivia such a good time, she asked to borrow a book to read to him.  Of course, I obliged.

Then followed cookies.

After such a long date, the two were ready to rest for a while.  They snuggled on the chair and just relaxed.

All in all, a great day!


Jexxican took my "Roaring 20s" theme and really brought it to life.  Olivia's dress is adorable and Bradford is the most charming monkey I've ever seen!  She also included a pack of sock monkey stickers but my sons quickly snapped them up.  So they are not pictured, unfortunately.

Thanks, Jexxican, for making my first swap so awesome!  Hope you like your package as much as I love mine!!!

3  Thrift store cheese tray to mini park scene? in Completed Projects by redrinnie on: September 11, 2011 06:58:14 PM
A few months back, I found this old cheese tray thing at a thrift store and because it was half off day (only 50 cents! woooo!) I bought it.  I had no idea what on Earth to do with it though.  I have that problem, buying odd things that I *might* eventually use.

Anyway, I FINALLY did something with it. 

A few coats of paint and some fiddling with some of the weirder craft supplies I have (Im a crocheter so most of my stash is yarn) and my mini park was born!

I really love how this turned out but now I have no idea what to do with it... lol.

4  Norton, the gentlemanly koala in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by redrinnie on: September 10, 2011 09:48:45 AM
First Post! EEEEEEEE!

This little guy is Norton.  My husband took one look at him and said "Norton.  He's a gentlemanly koala."

Can't argue with that! 

Norton was kind of an accident.  I wanted to make a monkey but as the grey yarn worked up, I realized he was definitely a koala!  Smiley
