I was also wondering what dental phantoms were, lol. I like suereal's idea better, but their both pretty creepy  Grin

I received a while ago. Apologies to the rockingbearranch, these need to be fawned over!!

OMG, how cool is this!! One of the things I love about these swaps is that your mind comes up with all these ideas, but every time the package is such a surprise. It's so fun to get these totally unexpected and wonderful projects, so much inspiration!
Anyway, rockingbearranch is a fantastic artist and drew this anatomical disection of a hand and mounted it on a tray. It'll be on display, but I'm also having fun with the idea of serving treats on it and as people eat they slowly discover what's underneath, mwhahahaha.

She also made the 3D version of the missing thumb which is so realistic it's almost hard to touch!

AND (as if that weren't enough) there's a fantastic little copper rimmed slide of icky little things. I can't stop looking at it. I love it all so much, thank you, rockingbearranch!!!

As far as my package is concerned- I still haven't received a supply I ordered. I didn't know what I was getting myself into with this idea, heh. I'm also about to leave for a 9 day fall road trip through New England (Salem in October, guys!!). So, my package is going to be so late. I'm so sorry, rockingbearranch, I hope it'll be worth the wait!

You won't hear from me for a while, I'll be back on the 11th.

I am SO SORRY this picture took me so long to post, I have been spinning lately. cmouse made this absolutely gorgeous doily. It just looks so delicate and flawless, I wish I could do this! That it was hand made just for me fills me with joy! Thank you so much, cmouse!!! You are amazing.

3  Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Bow and Sparrow on: August 28, 2015 11:02:34 AM
This spot shall heretofore be known as thine.

Me and the Derps, with our presents from Thimbles under the Halloween tree.
Major swap anxiety is on my face, though you may not be able to tell. All of thimble's tags are the most fantastic fabric ornaments/patches with vintage monster movies and bottle labels. They are so cool!

Day 1
AHHH, I had this seahorse skeleton pinned and never expected to actually receive it. So generous and sweet. And that would have been enough, but she also made a wonderfully apt (it has skeletons on it) zipper pouch as well that will come in so handy. So fun, AND IT'S ONLY JUST BEGUN.

Day 2
Velcro snack pouches! So handy! And I love the fabric. They also came preloaded with treats!

Day 3
This is so SO me. What an adorably scary wonderful little creature! I don't know if it's supposed to be, but in my mind it's a sloth. I'm not sure if the picture gets it across, but he's big too. I am in love with this guy!

Day 4
These guys give me the giggles. These are hilarious and will make the most wonderful, unexpected Halloween decorations. I'm looking for places to stake zombie heads all over my house now, I may need more. So well crafted!

Day 5
I know how many fellow Nightmare Before Christmas fans there are here, so prepare to be jealous! ... A knitted Jack mug cozy!! All the mornings are about to get so much better.

Day 6
A really clever and beautiful pillow cover. I'm really lacking in these types of Halloween decorations, so this is perfect!

Day 7
A *fabulous* mug rug AND coasters? Yup. I love crows so this brought a big smile to my face. These will def be used all year round. The coasters are day of the dead styled, which I also love. Have all these out already!

Day 8
Holy. Wow. A beautiful heart wall hanging. Everything so far has been amazing, but this just blows me away. Really incredible artistry and stitching. I love love LOVE it!!  (swap anxiety setting in strong here)

Day 9
2 zipper pouches in the most fun fabrics. (These are already coming in handy). One was filled with washi tape (which I might be slightly inappropriately obsessed with) and the coolest painted day of the dead dog. Thimbles stalked me well. So many wonderful treats!

Day 10
AHHHHH! OMG!! This is tied with the heart wall hanging for my favorites so far. There may or may not have been squeeling only dogs can hear upon opening this. My very own splat cat mat. I have been pining over this forever, but I can't make it myself. Love. It!!!

Day 11
Placemats! My goodness, these took so much work. Love the fabrics and really love the spider silhouettes, they look great on my dining room table.

Day 12
I must have misordered something, I'm not sure if these go together, but I had more gifts than days left! So, here are the next two. An array of (crocheted? knitted? I don't know how to tell the difference) anatomical body parts! Excellent additions to my collection for my curiosity cabinet. They are all great, but the heart is my fav. I don't even know how you get all those wacky parts on there. I need to learn to do this.

NEXT, two fantastic pot holders! they are almost too pretty to use, I don't want to get them dirty!

Day 13
An epic voodoo doll that can be used as a pincushion, how fun is this guy?! I just love odd little creatures. These yarn skills never cease to amaze me. He is perfect, I love it!!

I feel sooooooo spoiled, there wasn't a small in the whole lot. This swap was a blast. I love everything so much and am so grateful to you, Thimbles, for all these beautifully crafted items. I can tell how much thought and work went into it all and it is greatly appreciated!

My mug rugs from {Lo}ve arrived!! they are so precious and just my style. I just love them to pieces.

Here is a close up of the most perfect little stitching added onto the light one:

And then she also included TONS of wonderful fabric and embroidery hoops! It's all so wonderful, she stalked me well.

Thank you so much, Lo, what a wonderful package. I'm so sorry for not being on the ball with your's, it is going out within days, I promise Sad

5  Re: July 2015 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Gallery & Discussion thread in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Bow and Sparrow on: August 09, 2015 03:04:45 PM
Three new creatures arrived yesterday... let the squeeing begin!

Every drink I ever have is going in a mason jar from now on so I can snuggle up with these adorable foxies. Seriously, I'm bringing my own cup to restaurants. Do you see the tails? Do you? DO YOU SEE THEM?

And as if that weren't enough, I got a whole basket, I can't even believe it. Here he is in his new home on my kitchen shelf.

Thank you so much, rscowtown, these are so beautifully made and just make me so happy, like you'd never think yarn could.

I recieved this massive pile of goodies from mom2em, so much that I had to spread it all out on the floor to get it all in the picture! There's so many beautiful papers that I couldn't even begin to get them all in! Birthday swap, indeed!!!
2 perfect colors of ink, a pile of pretty ribbons, a smattering of sweet fabric pieces in all different styles, 2 stamps, a fantastic EDGE PUNCH, 3 rolls of washi tape!, ribbon tape, several packs of embellishments, embroidery floss in a wonderful summery color, a scrapbooking idea magazine and FOURTY full size, beautimous scrapbooking papers (to make you all thank you cards with  Grin ) - one of which will be donning the cover of my organizer for the school year. So many pretty flowers! Thank you so much, mom2em, I love it all!

So, I was brushing my dog today and realized a way to get the dogs in on the crafting fun...crafting with dog hair! I'm sure there's enough here to knit a sweater or make a family of needle felted yeti's.

It has arrived!! From the hidden forests of Madagascar to Canada to the US of A! The elusive Aye-Ayecorn!! For those who might not have heard of his cousin, the Aye-Aye, he is a truly adorable little lemur: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aye-aye .

suereal got so many real details in this guy, and he's posable so i can wrap him around one of my shelves like he's hanging out in a tree! How fantastic is he?!?! I asked for unusual animals and/or make believe and she made a wonderful combination. I just love him so much. He the next best thing to the real thing. Thank you so much, suereal, I LOVE it!!

I received from petskin today! Brace yourselves, this is seriously the. coolest.


It is the supreme circus side show act: conjoined bearded, tattooed twins!! (I think they look super strong, too). I tried to get a couple angles so you could see all the detail work. Amazing work, petskin, thank you so, so much!!

The hoop I sent was delivered Saturday, but I think my partner has been really busy lately. Hopefully I'm not spoiling any surprise by posting.
