Ok- feast your eyes on the creative madness of ghostgirl!

Here is what she sent:

a super cute revamped purse with a hissing kitty and a matching felt magnet:

an insanely cool elizabeth mcgrath inspired jewelry case that was revamped:

it has creepy baby dolls and taxidermy eyes and vines:

here's a close up of one of the drawer pulls - so cute!

and finally - my favorite - a super creepy hand made doll! i love her!

Thank you so much for everything ghostgirl - it all rocks!  Grin

yay! I'm so glad you liked her stopmoshun! Okay - I apologize in advance for posting a bazillion images, but she's kind of involved doll. Please meet Vivianne La Muerta:

her head spins 360 degrees - this is the back of her:

She is a board book - filled with 7 (lucky) short odes to love (weird odes) - each have a little illustration:
this page is from the short - whispers of spiders:

this one is from the dinner party in the forest:

winter in the popsicle forest:

stopmoshun is a librarian, with a passion for books of love. I thought it weirdly, cutely appropriate!
thanks again teddybearbones for hosting this - I had an amazing time!

3  Switchplate-a-palooza (img-hvy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by shmee on: April 21, 2006 10:35:02 PM
Okay - so after participating in the very fun Pimp My Switchplate Swap - I got inspired to use some of my lovely paper collection and cover a planet of switchplates! (I'm a paper whore and - can't stockpile enough of it and can't ever throw out even scraps - this was a fun way to use some of the odds and ends pieces). Some will end up being sold, and some will end up as gifts. Its was super easy and fun - and a great way to doll up something boring and utilitarian. Enjoy!

Check my FP switchplate-y goodness from Arabella!
I'm a collector of vintage FP toys - so this is perfect! Sadly the photo doesn't do it justice - there are FP Little People and in the background is a very subtle pattern of Little People in light blue (to match my walls). Its super cute! Thanks again Arabella - I love it! (she also sent a very sweet note on some beautiful handmade paper, which I think is going to get recycled into another art project - I hope that's cool with you Arabella!)

Thanks again Rackycoo for hosting such a fun swap!!

So here is the before shot of rocknroll's doll - I didn't take any pics of the after shots, but she said she'll be posting them soon.... it turned into a long distance creep out fest, probably not at all what this swap was supposed to be, but i think we both had fun with it. (now that's a teaser).

I helped my best gal make her invites earlier this year and we also opted for the atg gun. We considered all options and just thought it turned out the best. Here is the link to the site we bought from - with the best price we found on line: http://www.framing4yourself.com/equipment/equip_tools_tape.htm
We ended up lining the envelopes, so the gun was a necessity - I guess it also depends on what you end up doing...
These were some of the invites (there were several components, from the invite itself to the rsvp cards, brunch invites, etc.) - I think we made them for over 150 guests.... good luck - I'm sure they will turn out great!

Glad you liked it LivinEasy! For those who are slightly offended, or simply puzzled the reason behind the Jesus in the shower concept was because LivinEasy mentioned she had wanted to put the final piece in the bathroom as a nightlight, and as almost every Last Supper picture I've ever seen in someone's home always seems to be in the dining room... anyway, it made sense to me at the time.

But now for the good stuff I got from LivinEasy!

Here is the before:

and now my parrot has left the building... and become a super cool surreal shadow box!

In addition to freeing the parrot from its restraints, she sewed on this AMAZING paillard trim, and added collage and 3-d elements.

Here is a detail of one side - a lovely chair on a crotched flower/rug/knoll, with a lamp and a mini bird cage with a parrot in it! The trees are background pieces from the original.

on the other side is a beautiful lady reclining on still more cutouts and 3-d elements.

Thanks again - it totally rocks!

may I introduce "la luz de jesus"!

After my long voyages abroad I am delighted to share the "before" pic of what Livineasy sent me:

and here it is lit!

My digi kept wanting to compensate for the darkness, so the pic is a little hard to see, but essentially its an 8x10 glossy of jesu himself with a backlight! This is one of the most awesome pieces I have seen, and I'm a little intimidated to alter it - this is as good as it gets in the world of thrift store kitch! However, I am super stoked to give it a whirl... Thanks Livineasy for sending such a kick ass piece to work with! I'm off to drain my lungs and sketch some madness....

How is everyone doing with their pieces?
