April was full of getting things ready for my weekend away. 
My swap project was an epic fail :'(I need to redo it this week.
My truck broke down, so all extra funds are going to that
I lost a filling and it needed a root canal and crown, funds not needed pulled for truck will be going to that
I need to have all 4 wisdom teeth - luckily my parents are helping me out here.

So all in all, ALL craft projects must come from on hand stuff and I won't be swapping to much.

On the plus, the party was great and although I didn't get everything done, the stuff not finished can be used my the next party.

I love a simple tomato sauce!  I can't wait to get my tomato plants into the garden in a few weeks!

The Dr. Who pillow is wonderful...I think it is fun to have projects from a movie or show you like to show your enthusiasm!  ha ha showing our geek side! Cheesy
You did a lovely job on that!

j_kieviet--sorry to hear about the bad stuff happening...you will get through it...I am sure you will have plenty of crafts to keep you busy using your stash

Thanks waggonswest!

meleriffic - Tapestry crochet is also called Jaquard or (in knitting) fair isle.  Its working 2 or more colors at once and twisting them to make a certain color appear on the outside of the work.  I'm going to use cotton yarn and make some drink coasters I think.  It can be worked back and forth or in a circle.  Everything I've ever seen says that its better to work in a circle.  So I'm thinking that circle about 4 or 5 inches across with a piece of cork adhered to the bottom should do the trick.

Almost 1/2 way through the month, so time to form a list

1. Colors: grass (green), sky (blue), sun( yellow/orange), clouds (white/off white)--dreaming of laying out in a field looking at the clouds go by
       -quilt

2. Something for yourself
       -bed topper
       -fitted sheet
       -quilt

3. Strictly art...ATC's, paintings, etc.  Think projects that are not necessarily functional...just art...
       -cards

Oh thanks so much for the reminder JK! I've been so busy lately I forgot the challenges!

I have a bunch of stuff done but most of it I can't post yet because it's a swap package. Unfortunately that'll have to wait. But I've been so consumed with making stuff for my etsy shop and I have lots of that to post I guess.

More junk canvases! My whimsy supply is dwindling down again lol. But I think I might take a break after these - I kinda whimsied myself out oops. (Thanks to LimeRiot and AIMR!! The whimsies you sent me came in handy!!)











Should have done the clover in green (duh) but that didn't occur to me until after painting...it's just as well. I have an awesome grass green spray paint but it's way transparent so it would have been a pain to use.

I also did an awesome lino carving that was originally going to be my "art" for the 4x6 art swap, until I got a better more exciting idea lol.



And some more faux taxidermy stuff - this time magnets! Love them =)







Ooh and a big thing I've been procrastinating forever - designing my business cards. The flamingos are from a screen print I did last winter. I think it captures my style nicely haha.



I think that's it for now. I'll have more to post once my swap package gets sent off and received!
