11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 4 (green by 11/7, send by 11/11) on: October 25, 2013 06:12:12 AM
I haven't gotten nearly as much done as I would have liked to this week.  My father in law passed away Saturday, and we've been doing a lot of traveling back and forth to where he lived,.... And cleaning up.... Big messes.  But today I'll be taking a much needed day off, and last night I got my things reorganized to work on ornaments for a while today.  It will be, hopefully, very therapeutic.  :0)

Sorry if this pic is terrible.... I just happened on craftster today after a long hiatus, and I saw that sign ups for one of my favorite swaps was ending.  Anyhow, I tried uploading a pic from my phone, and it seemed to work (one wish I was hoping craftster made possible at some point).  I'm just not sure how it looks on a computer screen but I'll check that out tomorrow.  If it is huge, squashed, upside down or not visible at all, I'll know in the morning, but I can definitely see it....


This is an example of a felt owl in b&w,... I've made them in other colors and can make them in pretty much any colors you would like... But this is the only pic I have.  There will be some kind of Christmas button on the middle, but maybe not that same snowflake.  I hope these are acceptable offerings with me joining at this late hour...

I got my twinchies (and inchie, rinchie extras) from meowari!

All of these have a lovely sparkle on them somewhere.  It barely shows in the picture.  The peace one is so glittery it dazzled me when I opened it on my porch in the sunlight.  The felt kitty is perfect,...  grey goes so well with a red glitterized background.  The squirrel,... so cute.  The wings, are they... twirly birds?  Helicopters?  From... maple trees, I think?  (I'm sure there is a more technical term, but I used the terminology I used as a kid!)  They are also glittery, and the squirrel is drawn and cut out to go on the painted sky background.  Just as the mermaid tails (hanging on an underwater clothesline!) are cut out and placed in the water scene.  Each of these is really detailed.  I love 'em, and the time you spent perfecting these, meowari.  Thanks a bunch. 

OH, and I totally forgot...  The tail of the cat is movable.  It swings all around.   Wink

Hi, I'm Kim, from Louisiana.  I don't mind artful nudity or a bit of gore, but my style is mostly vibrant, whimsical, bright, colorful, modern, happy stuff.  Bordering on cute, and a little bit offbeat sounds great to me!  I like dimensional elements, but I do plan on framing, so nothing too thick would be great as far as how you make mine, please.  Big buttons would be about as thick as I would prefer.  I'd rather nothing political, please.
A combination of my themes is great.  If you would like to do 1 of 8 different ones, just claim me for the one that sparks your interest initially.  Translate my themes however you would like.  (OH, and I totally do agree with the 'handdrawn over stickers' thoughts...)  You can make me any of the three choices, but I will most likely make a rinchie into an inchie anyway.  Have fun, however you do it.   Smiley

Animals doing human like things (wearing clothes, playing poker, whatever)
Wizard of Oz/ Alice in Wonderland
Or your favorite fairy tale
Anything relating to Hippie/ 60s/ 70s/ Retro
Rainbows (and I get a big kick out of things that aren't traditionally rainbow - see profile pic)
Classic rock
My favorite TV shows or movies (listed in my profile)
Fantasy or mythical creatures (mermaids, unicorns, gryphons, dragons)
Cute or googley eyed animals (owls, peacocks, wild animals are favorites)
Something related to the states I'm from (Pennsylvania, California, Louisiana)
An inchie version of your masterpiece! (Favorite thing you made)
Art/ Art Supplies (from crayons to sewing machines)
Moveable inchie
Things with wings (normal things with wings or inanimate objects having wings)

I have received lots of pieces recently.  I figured they would all be pouring in at the same time so I held off on posting pictures, and the last 3 sets pretty much arrived around the same time.  However, I have been holding on to Alexampersandra's for over a week now.  Sorry for the holdup.   Wink
From Alexampersandra:

The ROYGBV piece is really clever.  The other has green gems and they are so reflective on the silver background.  Love them!
Next I have pieces from mlookyloo1:

Cute rainbow piece, and I couldn't have thought of a better orange than candy corn. 
Next, these are from seeuudee:

I love, love, love the rainbow piece.  It will most likely get the award for shiniest piece of the whole puzzle.  The blue, of course, is lovely too.
Next I have pieces from llisaredd.  We agreed to swap 6 pieces in the beginning.  Since our theme was so similar, I was excited I could do a red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple for her, and she did 3 rainbow pieces and 3 assigned color pieces for me.  Here's the rainbow ones....

She used such different things making each piece and they are so creative.  I'll still be altering lots of my own puzzle, and I'm really impressed that not one piece I got was something I had jotted down to do myself. 
And here's the purple, green, and red llisaredd did...

The red tootsie roll piece is great! The purple and green are both fuzzy, and the frog piece is so cute too.  All of these pieces were all so perfectly cut out and placed too.  Thanks for altering 6 for me, Lisa.

Thanks, everyone who sent me my most recent pieces.  I'm loving them all!

Now, I have to alter 24 pieces myself.  As soon as this hurricane/tropical storm moves along and isn't a threat to my immediate area, I'm planning on jumping right into altering the rest of my puzzle.  I couldn't resist putting together what I have so far,... and I'm loving it.

Those are from me!   Wink

I received 2 awesome pieces from sarahj2001 for my Quotes puzzle:

Love the graffiti lettering and the little "Sock it to me" s in the tabs.

And Neil Young:

The art work on this piece is just so charming.

Thanks Sarah!

Those inchies are wonderful!

Yay, I'm glad they arrived safely!  For some reason (since there were 6, probably) I was worried those would be the pieces to get lost in the postal system.  I have so little faith in the mail!

I've gotten more pieces done but I still have 3 more partners I'm not ready to send to quite yet.  They'll be touched up this weekend and out the door Monday.   Smiley

Here's the latest pieces I have recieved.  These are from Luvebuggy99

Love the tie-dye look of the rainbow one.  And they are both so bright and fit their color schemes so well.

These pieces are from KriSmith

Yellow submarine, complete with music!  The slight distress look of these is really interesting.  (And would you mind me asking, Kris, what you used to seal these with?  I like the finish, but don't think its anything I've used before.)

Thank you both!  Smiley

These new pieces are really neat.  Flamingos, fossilized mermaids, the harry potter pieces are all turning out so nicely.... 
And I really love the bubble wrap effect.

I received from KriSmith and Luvebuggy99 over the weekend.  I will upload pics tomorrow of my new fab pieces.   Smiley
