62  Re: Monthly Dotee Swap - MARCH Celestial in The Swap Gallery by La Chapa on: March 29, 2015 01:12:09 PM
I don't think I've commented in the gallery yet (too lazy to check) but I've been watching and I think this is my all time favorite gallery!  EVERYTHING is so amazing and creative so far, although my favorite is Moonbeam, with hannabear's alien face as officially the cutest face. 

And, to add to all the amazing, here's my dotee from Acadian Driftwood.  She went with my Taurus constellation theme...

It looks perfect in this open frame that has been hanging on my wall waiting for just the right artwork.  I think this may be a permanent display, although I'll have to do something about the pushpin. 

Thanks Acadian Driftwood!  I love it!!!!!

p.s. excuse the horrible stucco drywall (or whatever that textured stuff is called), I rent  Embarrassed

Love that adorable bat!  MommyTheMaid, your knit bat collection inspired me to add a knit gnat to my wishlist! 

I received an awesome bunch of goodies from mistressbatty...

She claimed me for crochet food, and she sent me a bunch of extras too!
She made this really cool breakfast sandwich complete with bacon, tomatoes, and dessert!

my son pretending to take a bite!  The kid in me just loves play food!  Wish I had stuff like this when I was little!

and, the extras!

I got seriously spoiled folks!  Thanks mistressbatty!

Lovely lupin!

Here is the wonderful dotee that alwaysinmyroom sent me.  My previous swappers certainly know how much I love the forest theme, and alwaysinmyroom has made me the perfect dotee.  She named it the Queen of the Pines, but I hope she doesn't mind that I've renamed her the Goddess of the Pines.  I am absolutely in love!

I love her gorgeous necklace!

and underneath, you can see her glittery crown!

Thank you alwaysinmyroom!
This is turning out to be such an exciting ongoing swap!  I hope I can make it through most, if not all, of the year!

And...Here they are!

The last few days have been a bit hectic so sorry for the pic posting delay, but Sebastian (my tiny tot) has really been enjoying these!
I requested some peg people for my son's wooden castle, and boy did Yenna deliver!  She even added a little skelly dude since my son is so obsessed with the human skeletal system.

These things are only like 2 inches tall, so you can imagine how tiny YennaMuffin's brush must have been to get all the little details!  I'm so impressed!  I took a million pictures to try to show all the little details, but I'll post them as thumbnails so I don't hog a whole page with one post.   Grin

The photos don't really capture all the charm.  You can't tell, but all the 'gold' has a bit of sparkle to it!  The great thing about my son's age is that he doesn't think anything about playing with a princess doll. 

Sebastian posed for a shot holding his favorite piece!

Thanks again YennaMuffin!

66  A little blonde witch in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by La Chapa on: March 02, 2015 11:14:53 PM
I've been taking a break from amigurumi lately, but this is the last one that I made back in December.  She was requested by a friend for a niece.  Sweet and simple.  Sometimes that's the best way to go.

thanks for looking!

Mission accomplished!  Both claims are in the mail heading to their respective claimees.  AND, I also received a great, big, bulging bag of yarn from rscowtown! 

This type of yarn is great for amigurumi!  Thanks rscowtown!  I'm already making plans for the variegated blue and brown, and the variegated green and brown.

I received this super adorable, bug-eyed moth from Wulf yesterday!

The photo doesn't really do him justice. Really.  His eye lids are individually sewn on, and look eerily realistic.  The antennae are actual feathers that have been shaped; so clever!  And the wings are of the thinnest, most delicate gauzy material that I certainly would have destroyed had I tried cutting or sewing it.  Thanks Wulf.  It will be treasured.   Grin

Ok, so here are my goodies from rockingbearranch...

A gorgeous moth to hang on my wall, and this gorgeously decorated little box with sea shells.   And wait till you see what's inside that box...

A bunch of adorable little snails!!!
My favorite is the one with the floral shell.

Thank you rockingbearranch!

Wow!  So much wonderful stuff in the gallery so far.  I can't believe I hadn't checked it yet! 

I received this awesome hoop from BriannaB03 today, and I am completely in love with it!

She also sent these two killer plastic aprons!  Love these!

Thank you so much Brianna!  I'm so happy!
