21  Re: We Love our Blythes and Pullips Swap Round 7 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by carrieme on: July 16, 2009 10:50:40 AM
I received from FREYA369 and she made some awesome goodies for my Petal, so here we go!
First a cute sundress with ribbon detail, perfect color and some pink patent boots!

Love the boots, she doesn't have any pink boots so that was a great suprise!
Then some turquoise cords and a pink top, the pants go great with some cowboy boots she already had  Grin

She's jumping for joy!
Some great accessories like a fleece blanket and a crystal necklace and bracelet set:

And finally, I think my favorite item of all a cuddly coat with a hoodie!

It's adorable and the colors are so perfect!
Thanks for everything FREYA369, it's all so nice!!  Great swap!  Wink

That monster is so cute!  I love the colors  Cheesy

I received from how_german yesterday, just wait till you see what she sent!
I had requested an owl or bird and love what she created:

She made this adorable owl and sent a bird necklace and earrings set.
I love all the detail on the owl, and the white part on the front is a pocket!

She also sent some floating candles and a little fairy garden, can't wait to give that a try.

Thanks so much, I love it!

I received from barbolot yesterday and she totally SPOILED me!!  Prepare to be amazed and probably a little jealous  Wink
First a set of 2 pillowcases of my 2 fave characters Michael and Buster, plus she embroidered my fave sayings on them:

Check out the images!

Then she made me an adorable seal pin cushion, poor Buster!

Next 2 awesome shopping totes in the banana and ham soup theme:

Look how cute these are!

Thanks for sending me such an awesome package barbolot!  I love it all!!

Today was a great day!  I received not 1 but 2 lovely chunky houses  Cheesy

The first is from gingerquilts and it is divine:

The black and white is fab and I love how you stitched the windows!

The second is from goatgoddess, love the "C":

The blues are so beautiful, makes me think of a house in a little sea village on the Mediterranean, wow, I think I need a vacation!
Thank you soooo much!

29  Liddle Lamzy Divey in CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES by carrieme on: March 04, 2009 09:40:31 AM
"Mairzy Doats" is a song from the 1940's that my Grammie would sing to us when we were little and we loved it.  The song is a play on nonsense words, but when sung even by little ones it sounds like something else.  My favorite part of the song was about the liddle lamzy divey, or "little lambs eat ivy"  I always imagined a little lamb frolicking and eating ivy. 

So I created a very little lamb locket in honor of my Grammie and how special she has always made me feel  Smiley

Here are the lyrics, composed in 1943 by Milton Drake:
Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
If the words sound queer and funny to your ear, a little bit jumbled and jivey,
Sing "Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy."
You can hear it here:

Here are some details and photos:
I have a couple of of silver 2 1/2 inch pocket watch cases that I bought at a sale and decided to use one as a locket/box frame for my Liddle Lamzy.  First I printed the lyrics and used that as my base for inside the case.  Then I used watercolor pencils to draw a meadow.  I used some old decorator sample books for the fabric for the lamb, they had the perfect texture.  Cut out my lamb shapes and the ears and glued everything down.  I put a small bead under her face to give it dimension.  I painted details to her face.  Then I did my shading and added micro beads and a flower bead around her neck.  I had a pipe cleaner that was just the right color to frame Lamzy.

Once closed, I used vintage lace and trim and charms to finish it all off.  Hope you like her!  Wink

Here is my beautiful little house from rackycoo  Cheesy  I love it, and the word peeking through on the back of mine is, "button".  Perfect for me, I love buttons!

Thanks so much!
