Details of swap:
a swap for all us grown-ups who will always love Alice In Wonderland!
the requirements are to create one tiny thing in any medium (knit, crochet, sewn, needlefelted, clay, paint, papercraft, jewelry ect), based on your partners preferences, that is roughly under 5 inches in any direction (though with things like jewelry, of course, there are size exceptions).  Quality work! Consider this a 2 point swap, and take your time to send something really awesome.

Don't know what exactly constitutes as 2 points?

By Points
Medium=2 points

By Time
-Medium=2 or more hours

By Price
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars

It doesn't have to be two hours AND cost 10-30$. It can be either or.  It might be difficult to take two hours to make a necklace, but it could easily cost ten bucks, like wise, it could take a while to crochet a cracken, but probably won't cost more then five bucks. The point is quality.  

Discuss gratuitous extras with your partner, please! No one wants to feel like there package fell flat.

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I like turtles! on: May 09, 2011 10:08:26 AM
So, I am fairly new with ami's,  only having  made about five in my life.

But, I decided when I signed up for the One Tiny Stuffie Swap, that I'd do an itty bitty ami for my partner, who liked sea creatures.

I've seen a lot of jelly fish ami's but I wanted to do some thing different,and still on an easy level for my noobness.

Thus, the baby sea turtle was born.  He's palm sized, and pretty stinkin' cute.

The turtle part is made of this really thick green yarn my mother in law gave me that needed a huge crochet hook but I did it with a tiny one so it would be super tight. The shell is Red Heart Super Saver in Buff.

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Yummigurumi. on: April 18, 2011 10:49:33 AM
So, I've been crochetting for years (one of the first crafty things I learned) but I'm fairly new to making amigurumi.  I signed up (for my first swap) for the Amigurumi Swap and let me just say, I think I'm addicted.  This is the first little guy I made. He's pretty easy, just squares and circles, but I think he turned out adorable, and now have to make more.

I'll admit, there was some angsting about chocolate-on-top versus chocolate-on-bottom but for the sake of melty cuteness, it went on top.  I used eyeshadow for the blush too, on a whim.

For my partner, I also made this dragon. He was a bit more complicated (getting the legs the same size baffled me) but, he's very ruffly and fleshy-pink, so I like em'.  I did the spiral-thing on the ends of his wings, to make him look a little less cartoonish.  The picture isn't the best, but he has eye sockets, and a ridge going all the way down his back, and a total fumanchu mustache.  If I had any idea how I made him, I'd make another, but honestly, he was kind of touch-and-go.  Now that I'm looking at it, this picture is really awful, lol.

Anyway, C&C welcome for my first ami's. *winces*
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Gnome Child, a halloween costume belatedly posted! on: March 06, 2011 10:30:45 AM

I have, even as a child, always been a lover of all things gnome.  Hence the name, right? If only it were raining gnomedrops.  I was luckily enough to breed into a family that felt the same. My mother in law collects them, and even has many handed down from her grandma.  They might not be collectors items to some people, but we adore them.  Gnome-loving is a lot like cat-loving. Not every one gets it.

Luckily, my mother in law does, and there for her son, my husband, understands my strange desire to gnome everything, including our darling two year old child, who in turn, also loves gnomes.   She wears this costume all the time, even now, and actually wore it to meet Santa, and will be wearing it when we go to the Gnomeo And Juliet movie in theaters. I She's the perfect little gnome.  I actually managed to make this costume with a materials on hand, which says a lot about my hoarding habits.

The skirt is more or less a two layered (both lined) circle skirt that I cut into a square instead.  Then I added a thick waist band made out of heavy wool felt (it's what I had on hand).  The leiderhosen are made of the same material, and embroidered with tiny flowers.  They button right into the waist of the skirt.  You can kind of see the layers in these pictures, top layer is polka-dotted, and the bottom is a soft green.  I wanted to get some better pic's but she's two (a very tall two, I know) and more or less permanently mobile.

She's like a freaking big-foot. Impossible to capture on film.

The hat is just more felt I had, and it actually fit her head perfectly, for which I was lucky.  It stayed on through some mild wind and didn't bug her to much.  I filled it lightly with poly-fill to keep it upright.

This picture is just for funzies.  I edited a beared on her.  She looks exactly like her grandpa with it.  He's kind of gnome like too.

C and C welcomed!
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 'Negative Space' black and white silhouette cameo painting on: February 28, 2011 08:16:44 AM

I made this for my living room wall. I'd like, eventually, to cover the entire thing in various paintings, by myself and others.   I toyed with a few different head and hair shapes, but I really liked the beehive.

however, the picture looks a little sterile to me.  I think it needs something, I just don't know what.

Any ideas?
