I just got this beautiful card from rockingbearranch for my Science theme; and look at the beautiful mail art and extras including a page from a vintage dictionary with the definition of shark.  Utterly glorious!

I got this awesome card from cmarion3 yesterday.  It's titled Ordinary Cat Powers by Oskar - the Ability with "Wide Eyes" to Look Innocent

Scroll down a few to see OathKeeper's much better photo of how cool the eyes are.  You tilt the card the pupils get big, just like an innocent-seeming kitty.

I love it!

I received 2 very cool cards from OathKeeper:

The first one is on my doorways to dreams theme - I looked at it and thought "What a wonderful door, it could go anywhere."

Then I flexed the card and the door opened to this:

So beautiful!!!

The second card was on my foxes theme, and she made it only from extras she got in other swaps:

I love the layered design!

Thanks for the wonderful cards!

4  Baby blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by Helcura on: March 01, 2015 06:07:15 PM
I've been away from crochet for a long time.  I used to do a lot of it and then just didn't want to do it anymore. 

Recently a co-worker had a baby coming and I thought I'd try a little crochet again.  Here's the result:

It's a pretty straightforward shell and picot pattern.  My coworker told me that his three-year-old liked it so much she tried to take it away from her baby brother, insisting it belonged to her. 

My next project in this pattern is a request for one in orange - that should be interesting!

5  First try at glitter ornaments in Winter Holidays by Helcura on: March 01, 2015 05:56:58 PM
So these are made with floor wax and a mix of regular and superfine glitter:

Pretty fun and easy.  It would be a good craft to do with children.

I'm terribly sorry to be so late posting these - had some technical difficulties.  They are both awesome and so worth the wait:

First, from artsycandice for a surprise (which turned out to be my tiny houses theme), this wonderful fabric and embroidery card:

And second, this beautiful card for my clotheslines theme from CDEeeek, a plethora of lovely vintage dresses that she got at an auction - isn't the detail wonderful? - I'm dreaming of those dresses now . . .

Thank you both - they really brightened up my day when they came!

I'm terribly tardy in posting a picture, my apologies.  I received this lovely soft cowl from Breegy.  I am quite fond of purple, so it was a lucky match!  Smiley

Thank you - I love it!

Wow - what amazing cards!

I got this super monster For my Science! theme from Kwality570.  His name is Brian the Brain and he's making some love potion!  <3

I've got my offering done - a crystal necklace and earring set.  Because it's crystal, it's hard to get a good photo (also my camera could be better), so I took two photos on different background colors and also two detail photos on different background colors. 

Here it is on a grey background:


And here it is on turquoise:

RockingBearRanch sent me this wonderful anatomical drawing for my Science theme:

Costae means ribs for those who don't speak Latin.

She also sent these wonderful Paint Silkie Rooster feathers - they are unbelievably soft!
