Here are some pics of my awesome package from alteredmommy.

She generously made me several things with Buddha on them and included a few delicious treats as well.

Here are a few close-ups:

This is my new rockin' Buddha alter/shrine.  It's made from a buddha perfume bottle, paint, gesso, bookpages, distressing ink, joss paper and handmade Thai paper.

Here is a close-up of the really cool bottlecap/resin Buddha magnets.  They look perfect.

My very first ATC.  I think I am addicted.  I absolutely love and and have to figure out how to start collecting more.  She also sent me really awesome cards with quotes on them.

And some treats...These are Clodhoppers.  They are really delicious and I think I may have to start importing these from Canada.  They are made by a friend of a friend of alteredmommy.

And a pure maple lollipop.  Can't wait to try it.

Is this all wonderful or what?  What can I say but thank you, thank you, thank you?

A proper thank you will go out by mail.

Thanks, alteredmommy!

My latest project was making a few mother's day gifts.  In my family everyone is a mother, including my niece & nephew who are both under 10 and don't have children themselves.  We just like giving and getting gifts, I guess.

I made these from Lydia the Strange's pattern (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0).  It took me a whole lot longer than 20 minutes though.

Here they are I made these all yesterday.

This is when she unwrapped them...

My nephew modeling his...

Here's a close-up.  I'm particularly proud of these.  He loves Spidey.

My niece modeling hers...

Here's a close-up too.

Thanks for looking!  Happy Mother's Day to all.

Happy Birthday, May Babies!

Thanks for participating in this swap, it's going to be so fun!  I just turned the big 3-0 on May 1st.  I live in NYC, actually in Queens.  I am surrounded by tons of cultures and love exploring different cuisines (at least those that are veggie-friendly).  I work in the nonprofit sector and can't imagine doing anything else.  Craftwise, I love to crochet.  For my birthday my honey got me a sewing machine -- woohoo!  I'm also interested in exploring resin jewelry making and I dabble in polymer clay.  My favorite colors are black, pink & purple, though I'm getting ready to re-do my bedroom in zen/earth tones, mainly browns and deep oranges. 


 - Sewing patterns (XL- No skirts please)
 - Summer-y crochet patterns
 - Fabrics from around the world
 - Any funky/unusual crochet supplies (cool hooks, out of the ordinary yarn, hand made yarn, etc)
 - How-to kit for resin jewelry (I already have some of the materials, but I need guidance and inspiration)
 - kit/supplies for urban vegetable/flower gardening

 - T-shirt with a diety on it (real or imaginary).
 - A Hand-made mug
 - Burnt orange bolster pillow for a double bed
 - Other pillows/pillow covers in the zen/earth tone color family

Can't wait!

I started one last night for a friend's new niece/nephew. 

The first photo is of my first 5 rounds. 

The next one is about half way towards completion. 

I finished it! What do you think?
