Here is my OTT from gerbilgal!




It's a happy crocheted spider guy!  He's hanging out on his festive web wishing everyone a Happy Halloween!  I realize in the photo you can't see all of his nifty buttons on his hat, but there's a JOL there too.  I really like the green eyes and the fact that I can hang a decoration (my shelf space has gotten very limited).  Thank you, gerbilgal!

Here is my wonderful house from MissingWillow!




She used fun papers and something I wouldn't have thought of: flowers.  There's a flower fabric ribbon and a faux flower at the top.  It really fits into the design!
Here's the writing with the witch:
"If I were a witch upon a big switch,
A-riding through the air,
I'd fly around, then drop to the ground,
And give you an awful scare."


Thank you, MissingWillow!

Details of Swap:
In this swap, participants will be put into groups of 3. You may join up to 2 groups.  Participants will make and send out one house to each person in the group.

Houses should measure between 3" to 4" wide and no taller than 7". Decorate them front and back with emphasis on embellishment.  Please sign the back with your name or craftster handle and date.  You want everyone to remember that great little house you made.

Please use a base material such as paperboard, matboard, wood, layered cardstock or foam core. It needs to stand without flopping over so you can have a whole chunky neighborhood.

Since this is a paper craft swap, DC numbers and mailing receipt copies are not required.  HOWEVER, if for some reason your chunky house does not arrive at its destination you will be required to re-send.  

Please send your house in a small padded envelope or sandwiched between cardboard.  Write "DO NOT BEND" on both sides of your package. We want that artwork that you spent so much time creating to get to its new home in good shape.

-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES


Details of swap:
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.

In this swap, participants will have one partner.  Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes.  For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament.  The tiny thing should fit within four square inches. If you need a couple inches wiggle room, that is okay.  This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.

After you have been approved, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know.  I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October [Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead (even though it is Nov 2nd), Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.]! Your five themes should be related to these.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread at least once
-take a photo of your item before you send (so you can post in the gallery if your partner can't)

Is your item tiny?
4" tall stuffie  = tiny  Smiley
      14" tall stuffie = Not tiny
small change purse  = tiny  Smiley
      clutch purse    = Not tiny


Bottom line:    4"x4" dimensions      
      If the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings or stitch markers), that is okay.
      If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

16  Cuckoo Clock Geocache in Completed Projects by irid3sc3nt on: January 12, 2016 04:53:12 PM
I made this cuckoo clock!  It's actually a geocache inside of a library.  GC698G8

I obtained some of the materials from Michaels such as the box, the fancy frame, the "clock" part, the leaves, and the bird at the top.  The wooden parts were either painted or covered with some fun scrapbooking paper.  I needlefelted the cuckoo with some wool roving that was swapped from this site!  There are additional tiny birdhouses that are hidden throughout the library that are painted and papered, but this one is my baby.

I finally have photographs of the house that elderflower sent to me.

Here it is flat.


Here it is assembled!


There's a neat effect where if you shine a light down from the hole in the top there is a ghostly image inside!
The tiny details are beautiful and I have no idea how you managed to get the cat to match up just right, elderflower!

Thank you for my lovely little house and I apologize for taking forever to get these photos posted.

I have received all of my houses, but I have yet to assemble and photograph elderflower's.  Here are the two that are finished.


From Wavelight SheridanLA!  It's a Halloween scene and when you peep through the window, you can see the kitty looking back at you!







From SheridanLA Wavelight!  It's a steep-roofed old stone building with a kitty in the window!




Thank you, ladies, for these teensy houses!

My last two houses!

Here is my wonky house from SonjaBoo.  It has a sewing pattern background, a nifty ruffled roof, and a spider.  The back has a bat and a big ol' chuckling moon.



Here is my house from spookygrrrly.  It has a orange background with black bats and uses ephemera to make the windows and doors.  The 13/11 at the top is one of my favorite elements.  The back has another little edition "For External Use Only".  Heheheh.



Thank you for my lovely houses!

More houses!



Here is my house from SunnyDawn.  Those ghosties are made from some kinda foam .. thing.  What are they made from, SunnyDawn?  It's the perfect stuff to make them.  The backside of the giant moon-with-bat is a clock.





Here is my house from thisbirdsabsurd.  I asked her about the ghostly images.  She used photos from her own supply and put mica on them from a mine she had visited.  Neat!  Both sides are so different that it could go either way.






Here is my house from PinkPug,INK.  It has a bat origami!  The back has a red-eyed big spider.


She also sent rinchies!!!

I'm going to make them into bottle cap magnets!



Thank you all!
