Okay, our last package arrived!! Yay!! Love the patches AIMR made for me (did we agree on 3?? Please tell me we didn't say 3!! 😶😳

She sent me a Disney patch (told me the pin was given to her the first trip to Disney World Orlando!!  Kiss Kiss).

Then a cactus patch, to teach the twins about desert plants.

And lastly a patch for my love of oceans/nautical things: a sand dollar!!

Thank you so much, AIMR, I love them all!!
Love the vibrant colours, and all the wee stitches!!

I realized after looking at how much better the other photos in the gallery are that I ought to take small group shots of these cards. I will try to do that when I am back in town (leaving tomorrow for a few days)

Here are my beautiful cards from seeuudee Again, so happy with all the blues! My daughters were actually fighting over the coffee card Cheesy

The outstanding Coffee Card

so cute!!! love the paper used to frame the theme paper. it really made the card pop

Thank you Gini!

I want to add my congrats to Mr. Alexampersandra! That is an accomplishment!

we took Lilith out for a family favorite tonight - macaroni pie - YUM!

Here she is getting ready to hike our favorite trail - the trolley line trail. It used to be a trolley line connecting our little town to Baltimore.

Bonus at the end of the hike - Trolley stop restaurant!

I love when the menu gives you the history

Check this one from Witchhippie, it's so detailed it's like a tiny fancy greeting card.

This little number from loca4crafts is layers of marker, black chalk pastel scratched away & sealer to keep the design intact.

Both fantastic, thank you ladies!

I recently acquired two 28 inch tall Monster High "Voltageous Ghoulfriend" dolls from two sellers on Mercari (often cheaper than eBay!) I got them to use them as decorations: I intend to make various outfits for them (or at least one of them) and change the clothes according to the holiday.
One of them was nearly complete but the other was nude and didn't have her accessories, either. She was also missing her hands, had a piece broken off her arm above her elbow joint, a small crack on the side of her face, and another crack above her right elbow.
Here she is, as she was after I received her and took her out of her shipping box:

She reminds me of Jane Boolittle because of the skin and hair color.

I figured, since she was missing bits, I may as well use her as a guinea pig because I wanted to see if I could give her knee joints.
Now, I've never tackled any such modification but Dollightful, one of my favorite YouTube doll customizers, used Apoxie Sculpt and screws to transform a 17" Frankie Stein into the Pokemon Xerneas (note: it's a two part video because she did a LOT of modding on that doll) so I thought I could use the same technique on my doll, even though she's much taller.

So I sawed off one of her legs:

And put some Apoxie Sculpt on the pieces:

Which I broke off after it dried because I dropped it on my hardwood floor (note: Apoxie Sculpt is strong but it hit just the right (wrong?) angle):

So I sawed it all off and started over, deciding to saw her other leg off and do it all at once:

The sudden hands are because the nearly complete doll arrived and I put the extra set of hands (which were webbed) on this doll after modifying them.

After the Apoxie dried, I needed to modify the holes because they didn't line up quite right. So I used my rotary tool to make the holes bigger and threaded the screws and secured them with nuts.

Here she is, sitting on my dining table:

Her right arm fell off after I moved it a bit but I can fix that later.

A closer shot of her legs:

She still looks a bit rough but I'm not going to work on her anymore right now. When/if I get around to cleaning it up and making it look nicer, I'll update this post.

I got spoiled too!

The coolest card and envelop, a keychain that says "Be Kind", rainbow stickers and washi tape.

Prayer flag with fringed edges "Love For All, All For Love".

This nifty covered ring with a heart floating in the middle. The strings holding the heart are so fine it actually does look like it's floating there.

"Love Has No Limits" TM patch/book mark, the heart is embellished with the teensiest sparkly seed beads.

Love Is Love TM patch style decorative ornament with Hope and a fancy heart embellishments.

Mug rug that MistressJennie sent her in a swap another time, she stitched around the edge to add her own flair.

This hilarious kid complaints fabric that I am totally going to use on something for myself, ha ha ha, it's SO funny!

Nifty giant pencil that draws in multicolours at once.

Everything is fab. Thanks too gala-apples for organizing this swap. Any chance for more rainbow crafts sounds great to me!
