1  The Journey Home in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by AugustBell on: February 13, 2018 04:10:20 AM
Hi fellow Craftsters! Its been a while. Been dealing with some very scary mental and physical ailments the past two years. Anxiety. Depression. ICU. Septic shock. Lost my best friends. Died and was resurrected by compassionate doctors and nurses and other medical staff members. I suffered a terrible loss. Derealization. Anxiety. Its real. Get help. Im finally healing and this piece is me metaphorically freeing myself from this hellish storm.

Glad to be back

@Patraw - WICKED awesome job!!! We must collaborate again. That is fantastic!

So I received this fantastic card from blupaisan last week for my theme "illustrated dictionary entry" and she did a fantastic card for me!!

She selected the word "ethnomusicology" noun - the study of the music of different cultures, especially non-Western ones.

I love it, blu!! Truly a word I have never heard before, and I love that so much!! Fantastic card, thank you so much!

I got the most stunning Outer Space ATC from AugustBell a week or two ago. The first one got lost in the mail or something, so she kindly made and sent another one. It's breathtaking. I could easily see this as an illustration in a children's book about outer space. It's just beautiful! Thank you so much! I treasure it! Smiley

Wow, I'm thrilled you love it so much! The first one go returned to me torn to shreds, which worked out, because this second one turned out better! Smiley

I received the most amazing cloths from my three partners!!

First up from my sweet friend Mistress Jennie, who sent me 3 gorgeous cloths:
A Mad Eye Moody cloth which I LOVE:

Next a gorgeous star with some bobble scrubbies in the center:

And finally a fried egg cloth, because my love for fried eggs runs deep into my soul:

I love these amazing cloths, Jennie!! THANK YOU!

Next from smittenheart a couple of great knit cloths bearing images from my favorite fandoms, Harry Potter and Doctor Who, plus a couple of little bonus scrubbies!

I adore these cloths, smittenheart. Thank you so very much!!!

And last, but certainly not least, from my dear friend pottermouth, a whole collection of cloths! She spoiled me silly with this amazing package:

I got a couple of Harry Potter themed cloths, plus a couple of extras. I love the Tunisian crochet cloth with the flower on it. VERY cool!

Thank you SO SO much, pottermouth. I loved my package so very much!!

I received some great ATCs this week plus a fun bonus!

First up from LadybugsAndBumblebees - she claimed me for two cards. One for my Woodland Whimsy theme and again for my Watercolors/colored pencil theme.

Thanks, Barbara! They are so fun and colorful!!

Next from rockingbearranch, she claimed me for my theme "Famous Movie Posters Starring Cats" and she sent me TWO amazing cards, and a bonus, large flyer of one of them! Yippee!!

I *LOVE* these cards, rockingbearranch, especially KIT. T. - E.T. is one of my absolute all time favorite movies, so this card is beyond perfect. And I adore The Martian one too.

This awesome (I think 8x10-ish in size) post is really cool! And of course I had to tack it up on my fridge with my cat butt magnets  Cheesy

Thanks to both of you for the great cards!! I love them!

10  Harry Potter Crochet Hooks in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by AugustBell on: March 06, 2016 06:01:01 AM
I made these two crochet hooks for my friend Jennie in the Harry Potter Flat Rate Box Swap.

Every witch needs a special wand just for crafting, so I started with a wooden hook base and sculpted her her very own crafting wand!

Next I made her a hook commemorating our favorite boy wizard and his school house, Gryffindor. I used a red aluminum hook covered in a glittery black clay before wrapping the Gryffindor scarf around it, and adorning it with Harry's glasses and scar.

And naturally, a shot of the hooks together, hanging out on the crochet hook wallet I made as well.

Thanks to Jennie for letting me steal her awesome light-box photos. And thanks for looking!
