1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / How Do I Love Thee? With Paper Mache on: February 13, 2018 10:23:55 AM
I made this paper mache heart for Annchen in the mixed media heart swap. I have been itching to play with some paper mache lately, so this was extra fun to put together!



I used a piece of cardboard as the base, then layered the paper mache on over that. I poked holes for the hanger, and let it dry overnight. The heart is painted with Golden liquid acrylics, which are my new favorite paints ever.



The poem is one of my favs by Elizabeth Barrett Browning — it was in an old book in my stash that is now used for craft projects.



I left the back plain but colorful so it can be reversible.

Thanks for checking it out!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Snarky Valentine -- Hot Bob on: February 07, 2018 07:38:06 AM
As part of the "Be My Snarky Valentine" swap, I made this little shrine for my partner, rackycoo.

Just try to restrain yourself, ladies.



When Bob starts baking those cakes -- or doing any form of cooking, really -- he's a total chick magnet.

Here's a side view:


The back, sides and inside backing are covered with a red/white harlequin patterned paper. Pink dresden edging is around the, uh, edges. Red heart sequiny-bling stickers were added to each side. And a Japanese cake eraser ended up being the perfect accent for the top.

I also sent along a little card for rackycoo to share with a sweetheart. (The photos were taken in my dark craft room, unfortunately. But you'll get the idea.) Check out these two crazy kids!


And the sentiment inside:


Thanks for looking!

Details of swap:
Let's show some love for mixed media! In this swap, we'll each be creating ONE mixed media heart that is no larger than 6" or so in size. (You can cheat a little, just check with your partner.) Just big enough to look amazing, but small enough to create in a short turn around -- and hopefully keep postage costs at a minimum! This swap has three weeks for crafting so participants can receive their heart in time for Valentine's Day.

Again, this swap is for ONE heart -- but if you and your partner decide on extras, that is fine!

What can I use to create my heart?
You can use paper, fabric, wood, wool, canvas, paper clay, paper mache, glass... whatever inspires you!

What should my heart look like?
Follow your heart! Maybe yours is an altered canvas, or a mini shrine. It might be a tiny quilt, a gorgeous stuffie or a lovely needle felted creation. Or maybe you make a metal or glass piece to wow your partner. The possibilities are endless!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Spirit Snarky lady ornament on: January 04, 2018 09:02:25 AM


I made this gal for Onyxnox in the recent Snarky Christmas swap. As you can see, the snark is strong with this one. Grin How else do you get through the holidays than with a little "holiday spirit?"

I’ve had this chip board ornament kit for some time, and was waiting for the perfect project. It’s a bit larger than most ornaments I normally make, but it’s light weight, so I thought it would work out. I used various papers and ephemera to decorate. I found the holly bits at Hobby Lobby -- they feel very vintage and "White Christmas" to me.



Here’s the back:


Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed some holiday spirits yourselves!

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Be My Snarky Valentine on: January 04, 2018 07:46:53 AM


Following the end of the Snarky Christmas swap, a few of us swappers discussed that it might be fun to have a Snarky Valentine swap. After all, what's Valentine's Day without a little tongue-in-cheek humor?

This would be another small swap, where you'd send your partner a small, snarky valentine related item (an ornament, magnet, mini shrine, necklace, etc.) and, of course, a snarky valentine card. Anything extra would be totally optional for you and your partner.

Any takers? Cheesy If there's interest, I'll get sign ups going by next week, and send outs should be ready for the first week in February.

Details of swap:
We're getting to the "it's hard to find time to craft because I'm cleaning, cooking and shopping for the holidays" season — and that just sort of brings out the snarky housewife in all of us. Let’s make a snarky ornament to hang upon our tree to acknowledge our hard work and need for another bottle of chardonnay!

This swap requires ONE ornament be sent to your partner. This will be a quick and dirty swap, just like a good martini. The only real rule is that your ornament is made with love, care and lots of snark.


While not required (and applicable only where age appropriate), you are totally encouraged to enjoy a good cocktail while crafting. You know, for science. Cheesy
