That is really awesome! Shocked It may not have turned out exactly as you wanted but it's still amazing! Cheesy

Thanks! I'm trying to decide if I wanna seal it or not. lol I'm going through that 'i don't wanna ruin it!' phase, because I've never worked with it before. lol

Prompt:  September - Mythology -  Zeus/Poseidon/Hades  - The Sea
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Ursula mini figure
Brief Description: This is made with sculpey clay. It's not what I originally started out to make....lol which is how all of my crafts seem to go, lately. This was the first time I ever used sculpey clay.

What I originally wanted to do was make Ursula's shell from her necklace and have a her tentacles wrapped on it. But....her tentacles are what didn't turn out well. I tried making a tentacle with black on top and purple on the bottom, at first I got them melded together how I wanted, but I realized I made the entire thing skinny and had no thick part and I didn't like that. lol  And when I started playing with the tentacle to redo it....it just kept swirling together.

 I started playing with it and trying to make it all curvy and what not and eventually it just kinda ended up in this shape. And I liked it. I kept wishing it was open enough to be a ring, but it wasn't. lol oh well.  I scrapped my original big shell and made a tiny one to set on the Ursula piece.  In the end, I think it came out cute for the most part.  I'm mad that there's a cat hair baked into the front of this, but, oh well.  I also learned that trying to make tiny things with clay, doesn't go so well with longer nails. lol I put sooo many gouges and lines in what I was making, made me sad. There's still a couple on it that I couldn't smooth out without making a bigger mess.

So....it turned out to be just a neat little figure. I have other little clay figures people have made me in swaps....so one day when I can get a little thing to display them....this will go right with it!

Sorry for the potato pic quality! The lighting sucks in here at night. I'll have to try and get a better shot in the morning.
OH - also, it's about the size of a quarter.

mistress_batty, I really like the plastic canvas squares. So cheery! What do you plan to do with them?

Thanks!  The only thing I can think of doing with them is make them into coasters for my desk. lol I'm not really sure what else to do with them.

If I do make them into coasters, I've gotta wait until I can buy some blue felt for the back of them (lol it's frustrating the lack of basic craft supplies my town lacks lol).

I love your pot holders! Your practice one just makes me want to try sewing and quilting more. Inspirational!

Prompt: Battle Royale September  -  GOOD
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Rainbow Brite & Sprites plastic canvas
Brief Description: I admit, I was originally going to the dark side and doing a tapestry of a Storm Trooper, but I never would have finished it by the end of the month. So.....I went to the Good side.
  I loved Rainbow Brite as a kid. <3<3  and I love colors. So if someone's gonna be on my good team, it's going to be her!
  I had these little plastic canvas squares and decided to do the Sprites' and Rainbow Brite's heads. (the colors are a little off in the pic than they really are)

YAY! I'm so excited about the new season of battles! I'm gonna put my thinkin' cap on and think up some goodies I can make to score team Multimedia some points!

I already have ideas for Native American mythology and East Indian mythology. I love ancient Egypt....so I'm going to have to look up something for that one....there's so much to do <3

I wanted to say sorry to everyone for posting so late due to some family things I've been taking care of.
  I hope everyone gets their feedback and can make more people super happy with their crafty talents!

Here are the 3 things I've received from people in round 111!

frosty772 -
  This talented belle made me a Tardis themed mug rug! My very first mug rug and I've been utterly spoiled with this one! The Tardis is so awesome. It's machine embroidery and I'm super impressed with the detail - you can actually read where it says 'police box' and everything (although my photo didn't capture that well).
  Thank you so much frosty772! Now I'm totally inspired to try my hand at making a mug rug. lol I just have to get comfy with my sewing machine again. lol

texscrapper -
 Thank you to pieces for the 'unpaper' towels! I was blown away when I saw this pattern peeking out as I opened the package. I looooove damask patterns. And the black and white damask is perfect! I have a few other household items that have the black & white damask so this fit in 100%!
 These 6 towels are perfect, lol but I'll be honest, they're so white I don't wanna use them to dry things off and make the white dingy. lol they're so crisp and perfect <3
 Thank you so much!

vixen72 -
Mini pinatas! I was so surprised when you picked this off my list because this is one of those items I didn't know if anyone would wanna make....so I was psyched when you made them. And I was even more psyched when they arrived!
 lol I've had to fight one of them away from one of my mom's dogs and my cat (and he still tries to find them and bat them around lol).
 They definitely brighten up my work space <3  They look awesome! Thank you soo much!!

First - I wanted to apologize for being quiet and gone for awhile! I had a family emergency and have been dealing with that. And now I'm catching up on work and crafting!
I have a couple more claims I plan on making - I just need to get the current claims from this swap and the ongoing wishlist swap done and sent first before things are too late!

Second - I received my package from SammyLouise40 today!! I think I was squeeing the entire time I was opening it. lol She picked some of my interests off my list and handmade them and I'm so excited! She did an awesome job!

Nerdy Hello Kitty card she made

all the pieces she made!

A planted Sandworm that glows in the dark <333

Then we have a tentacle for a necklace - I'm now on a mission to find a chain to put it on. lol
And then she started my collection of cats inside of things lol She knew I liked the 11th Doctor from Doctor Who....so she put the kitty inside a fez <3

I'm going to have to find a little shelf or something to hang up to display my pieces.
My sandwork is here next to my laptop and I just keep checking it out lol It's going to be one of those things I have to pick up each night so it doesn't fall victim to my cat.  ....and he is enjoying the cool blue patterned box everything came in....lol he's putting teeth marks in it as if he's a hole punch.

Thank you so much, SammyLouise40!!

I hope mistress batty will receive mine soon as well.

I just got my package yesterday from IdlersDesign!!.....and I was blown away! It was like my birthday opening everything inside hehe.

part 1 - washi tape, handspun yarn, pens, little yarns lol I was'nt sure what to call them, they're really soft, a postcard from Holland...which I'm totally going to hang up lol, and an embroidery hoop - and I'm really digging this hoop because it's not like wooden ones I've found in craft stores around here....where it's kinda flat on the edges and feels unfinished and stuff. This one's more rounded and smooth. lol I have a thing with feeling things. lol

part 2 - a big notebook that's been painted with a galaxy (and I forgot to take pics of the back and inside of the notebook, but it's super pretty with flowers and everything - I loooove notebooks <3 lol )   annnnd, she handcarved some stamps for me! (also I included the wrapping paper that the notebook was in because it's just so pretty. <3

stamps closeup - we've got a bow, a mushroom from Mario Bros., nerdy Hello Kitty, and 11th Doctor/Doctor Who Hello Kitty!
 They're so cute! I'm dying to get an ink pad now so I can put them on everything lol

Thank you so much, IdlersDesign for this amazing package!!
