Some of you might remember, I went on a bit of a stuffie bender in round 7 and adopted a bunch of stuffie makers for personal swaps.  I was able to pick up FinRaziel's package when I went to my folks last week.

She says that the fur was to be a stuffie, but it turned into an epic fail instead.  No worries FinR!  I am sure I can come up with a use for the swatch you sent along.  ANd I so love the Hex-critters.  You so hit it with the glow in the dark Pez (loud cheer for glow in the dark everyone!) anyway.  ANd the skelly makes me smile Grin
Thanks a bunch for swapping with me Grin

I just got a fab package from the uber amazing Birdbones today, and I must suggest that folks hit this chica up for private swaps.  Not only is her work superb, but she is a treasure unto her self.  Be warned this is picture zoftic....

Firstly, the box was covered in this wonderuse paper... And then I opened it..

And it was STUFFED!  Now...do I start with the mains or the suger rush...sugar rush it is Grin

Anyone who knows me knows i have a thing for eyes in general.  And what could be better then GUMMY EYES!!!  They are gloopy and squishy and yummy all at the same time.  But my hands had to have a bit of fun..

Now I can get away with talking to my self Grin

And then here is the rest of the sugar rush.  Notice the one package is empty.  A nice gingery cookie covered in chocolate.  I absorbed them before I even unpacked the rest of the box Grin

She also was kind enough to send along a special treat for my Hub...it was a good thing for him that he was home at the time.....

THEN she sent along these yummys...cept they are eye candy not tummy candy..

And now..I am proud to present *insert here what ever important music/sound you prefer*  STUFFIES!!

Not only did I receive them but I ADOPTED them.  Here is the cover and the info inside.

It says..."     Adopt an Alsace Rabbit, commonly known as the Easter Bunny!

Lepus sylayaticus hedera, Schreckstien 1527

Discovered by the German Alchemist, Dr. Schreckstien in 1527, this subspecies of the common rabbit is a crossing 'between plant and animal.  It's origins are widely disputed, some documents dating back to the 16th century even attributed their existence to the mysterious experiment's of their discovery.

Although widely spread in their native grounds of Alsace (French: Alsace, German: Elsass, the fifth smallest of the 27 regions of France, a highly disputed area between Germany and France) at the time of their discovery, the Alsace Rabbit is now near to extinct.  This might be due to the high popularity of their clear eggs that reveal the colorful creature inside, especially around Ester-time.  Also there is some discussion that the species, consisting of both plant and herbivore animal, has some genetically created dietary difficulties.

IN the age of artificial food and flavors, the Alsace Rabbit is now trying to make a comeback.  Widespread promotion may also lead to increased awareness in children in order to give their eggs the time they need to mature.

The Board for the Alsace Rabbit's Fornication (B.A.R.F.) is hoping for your support in the adopting and preserving the unique species."

I will of course be taking up the call to do every thing I can for these poor misunderstood and vulnerable animals!  So here are a few more photos to entice others to join the cause.

And I might have made a tiny mistake as I released the poor baby from it's clear egg before I was sure it was ready.  Fortunately, the little creature was far enough evolved to be able to with stand a premature birth.

But that is still not the end of this amazing box...

I am the proud recipient of a OneOfAKind BirdBones shirt!!!...um...SSSQQQUUUEEE!!

Check out this fab sleeve..

And this adorible pocket...

It even comes with a wee puffy flower pin...

How cute is that??!!

Thanks you soo much BirdBones!  I hope you like what I sent to you even 1/2 of how I like what you sent me.  But mostly..just thanks sooo much for being such an amazing PMpall!
One Zillion Hugs for BB Grin

223  2 sided multi-buckle belt and tool kit---lots-O-pics in CHALLENGE 67 ENTRIES by suereal on: October 07, 2011 10:41:12 PM
I had been trying to think of what to make as soon as I saw this challenge.  I LOVE tape of all kinds (as anyone who has gotten a package from me can attest to) so I have a large assortment of duct tape, which mostly I just hoard.  So the opportunity to actual USE some of my stash was oooo so tempting.  It took me a bit to decide/find/discover what to make, but eventually I realized I needed a new belt.  And since I had bought a wicked belt buckle several years ago at a garage sale that had no belt to go with it, I thought I'd work with that.  It is a very distinctive belt buckle though, so I chose to make it into a changeable belt, so I could use which ever belt buckle I wanted to at the time.  And since I was thinking versatile and changeable, I also thought I would make it a reversible belt as well.  SO now I had a punk/rad/hippie belt...

This last belt buckle was what inspired me to start..and you may notice the extra addition.  That is my "survival" tool kit.  It has nearly everything I might need in a regular emergency.  No, I can't use it to make a fire, but it has all my favo mini tools and several more things.

Here's the outside all by it's self

And here it is open.  It has..
1.  Spool of waxed thread
2.  Small bungee cord
3.  2 small bull clips
4.  Crank flash light in a small tin
5.  1 water activated cloth tablet (in foil in tin)
6.  Small locking box knife
7.  Folding pliers with philips and flat head screw drivers, 2 bottle openers/pry tools, file, knife, and saw
8.  Four band aids
9.  3 needles
10. 4 aspirin(in foil)
11.  Flat head screw driver disk
12.  Fine point scissors
13.  13 safety pins
15.  Sharpie
16.  Small note pad
I used my favo Adirondack snaps.  They are large and have a nice heavy grip to them

It all came out nice and thin, which makes me very happy.  I used a few long prong studs to make sure the duct tape stuck to the zipper, and I used some glue inside to help the vinyl to stick to the zipper on the inside, but I didn't stitch the zipper.  It's originally adhered by the tape alone. 

This is my favo part.  I made sure and left some room at the head of the zipper, to make a small opening to be able to pop up a few things I pick up on my adventures.  I'm a magpie by nature, and can't help but pick up the odd knickknack (lot's of folks call it junk) on my travels.

And I used all but one of my duct tapes in this construction.  Some of them are not visible.  I used the green tape to reinforce the belt and the blue one to reinforce the tool kit.  I chose the bright silver duct tape for the kit because I wanted to be able to find it in a flash...beside it makes me feel like a super hero some how Grin

Thanks for looking!

225  Re: Vintage Halloween Swap Round 5 - Send by Oct 3rd in The Swap Gallery by suereal on: October 05, 2011 06:06:11 PM
So many cool things!  And I get to add to the pile of cool because....My Package Came From RACKYCOO Today!! (well yesterday, but all I got yesterday was the delivery slip)

Package number 1 was this adorable wee pumpkin.  He sits atop a vintage wooden block (I had a set when I was teeny tiny so I secretly love them tiny cubes to bits).  He gets two photos because I couldn't get a clear photo of where he will be sitting for a bit.  But he seems quite happy on my mantel with a poodle, lucky kitty and fugu fish.

Package 2 made me ssqquuee all over the place...

My beloved wee dog Cosmo all dressed up for Halloween!!!  I just love this to pieces racky.  He looks so distinguished in the steampunk out fit Grin

and THEN there was package 3.

This fabulous Halloween clock.  The skelly with the clown bum makes me laugh everytime I look at it.  The works of the clock are in an Altoid tin, which I had never thought of but is such a clever idea.

Thank you sooooo much rackycoo.  I just LOVE everything Grin Grin Grin

226  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R10 FOCR R10 (Signups CLOSED Sendout 10/25) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by suereal on: October 02, 2011 07:30:56 PM
OKies...so I had a hard time thinking of a "best", so I went with a combination of things.  I worked from my stash, used recycling, glow in the dark, peg eyes, animals, and I like to make things that are practical when I can.  And here's what I came up with...

He started out life as a strange little black purse I've been carting around for a few years now.  His fangs glow in the dark.  And he has a secret...

He's actually a box.  You just lift up his tongue to open him up.

His heart is covering up the made in China tag that used to be on...since he wasn't made in China, the purse was.  I hope who ever wins him likes him as much as I do Grin

227  GoodBye Kitty/Zombie toy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by suereal on: September 25, 2011 05:57:01 PM
I made this little...thingy...for v3nu5 for a sort of private swap...I adopted a few extra stuffie makers from the Round 7 OTStuffie Swap, and she was one of them.  We changed the 5 inch rule, so GoodBye Kitty is a bit larger then 5 inches, but I never measured...

She is made of polar fleece samples in greens and blues that I was given.  She has had her arm ripped off, and an ear removed.  The ear has a tiny drop of crusted blood still hanging on (it's a red glass bead).  She was able to sew one of her legs back on, so you can see some stitching there.  The knife that helped her to exit the world is still in her back.  It can be removed and inserted to the hilt.  And she has a special little friend, The Worm.  Some how, through it all, her bow has stayed pristine.  Perhaps that is where she gets her zombie powers from..

Thanks for looking Grin

That bat is adorable Homerof2.  And great minds think alike as I made a bat for one of my adoptees; FinRazile (who started all this tiny stuffie madness in thie first place..)  She has been super busy, so I'm posting what I sent her.  And she will be mailing of in the next week or so I think..

I used polar fleece for the body and then pleather and wire for the wings.  Which sounded so clever when I first thought of it, but was waaay harder then I expected.  I used an entire package of needles, trying to sew just right up long the wire.  So anyway it can curl it's wings around it's self, or have them extended.  His feet are wired too, so it can hang off of the edge of a lamp shade or something.  I also sent her some bat brads, doll needles, scully thumb tacks, a vampire teeth sucker, and yet another fortune fish (thanks to nmcakemom07 who sent me a passel of them Grin).

And that is all of my adotees, cept' BunnieBoo, who is international.  BirdBones and I will be doing our (personal tiny stuffie) swap in round 8

229  Don't make me call out the FLYING MONKEY! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by suereal on: September 25, 2011 03:51:54 PM
I have been making a ton of stuffies recently and this is one of them..

I made this little guy for round 7 or the OTStuffie swap.  It was for Saint_Angel so I went with her on going theme of The Wizard of Oz.

He would fit inside a 5 inch cube...if you shoved him in a bit.  He's made from polar fleece samples I was given.  I designed each body section in a simple flat format.  Then I used doll joints to string the sections together, so his body can be moved and posed a bit.  He also has pipecleaners through all the appendages, so he is possable that way too.

Thanks for looking Grin
