look at all the gorgeousness!

Those cupcakes look delectable, and I love the slouchy hat.  I also really like the colors you chose for the other knitted items. So pretty!

And artsycandice, I'm delighted to see another friendly "face" on this thread! Yay!

I'd also love a stumpwork tute, sheepblue!

I've missed so much stuff again!  It's all amazing, you guys are so creative and inspirational!  I need to comment more often, I know.  Anyway...

For one of my partners in the hoopla swap, I saw she had a pin that said "You're a W(anchor)", and I knew the instant that I saw it I had to do it.  But as I cruised her pinterest more, I also saw she had some posters pinned that said "You (anchor) me".  And an idea was born!  A two-sided hoop, where you could display whichever side matched your mood!  You partner would know they were either in your good (anchoring) graces, or they were on your bad side (W(anchor)).  Then came the part about figuring out how to do it...

If anyone is curious as to how I jury-rigged the double sided hoop, I tried to explain it in my post, but unfortunately I didn't take pictures.

And then I have a glued... uh, "stuff" to other "stuff" art project from Lifebook.  Of course I didn't follow the directions (in the lesson all the add-ons were white gessoed over and then highlighted with shimmery paint) and there are parts of it I don't like and there are parts I do, I'm going with she's my muse of crafting...

that double sided hoop is genius!  I love the punny messages!  Especially the bad mood side... Grin

I have really been remiss on this thread. I did the same thing I did last year. Started and then completely forgot about it.....too much glue maybe.

I've been busy.....so a whole half a year in one post.

Some Valentines Day goodies. We had a half way to Michfest party and I gave out the hearts to everyone. Michign Womyn's Music Festival happens every August.

And Ellie with her hearts.

A craft witch to watch over my crafting

Monster Eyes and Monster Eyeball snacks (pins)

And Monsters! I mean if you have monster eyes, and something to feed them, you must make monsters.

A break from monsters to create an ATB https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432090.msg5170498#msg5170498

And more monsters....

And it is only Mid March...where does the time go.

Enough for this post. Maybe more later.

We did a little house remodel this last winter, knocked out a closet, then put a new floor in (big project to level the silly thing). Lots of paint, some furniture upgrades. The only thing we had to purchase was the flooring. Everything else was leftovers or rescued.

Started small....https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432332.msg5175621#msg5175621

Then went bigger...this was a big clutter buster and fun to showcase all the goodies from swaps.

This is the redone room...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432543.msg5179919#msg5179919

And some detail

Comfy seating https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432638.msg5181774#msg5181774

And then the craft room...started a year and a half ago, finished early spring.

Also a little sewing table mod...new sewing machine and very old table. I hate to throw anything out. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434415.msg5216454#msg5216454

Then on to more art dolls. Why do I like making these so much, but never keeping any? https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432960.msg5186288#msg5186288

Altered anything gets me happy. Here's a spool that found a new life. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434331.msg5214933#msg5214933

Some fun blocks Olliblock style. www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433201.msg5190661#msg5190661

And my favorite swap ever, the Spirit/Intention doll swap. I have made more of these for friends. So much fun. This topic has a pattern.

And another...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433811.msg5202731#msg5202731

And to lift our spirits, prayer flags...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433433.msg5194683#msg5194683

A great scrap buster are fabric rope bowls. Very addictive and useful...I think. I've made a few hundred feet of bowls. And still ripping fabric and wrapping and stitching. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434026.msg5207791#msg5207791

and https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434027.msg5207794#msg5207794

An ATC or dozen. I will just post this one...my favorite.

And my last effort...100 things challenge. 100 pennies fell from heaven. Pass them on. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434416.msg5216459#msg5216459

There's more I am sure, but I can't even count. Not enough fingers or toes. It's hard to count the room redo's...so many little details to craft. Out to the garden now.

The little critters keep coming out of the wood work. I've got several more in various stages running around here. They are for a church craft fair in November...that is if they do not run off!

I've been living out of a hotel room this summer for an internship, but I've still managed to do a little sewing.

The most boring black skirt ever, but it's literally been worn every single weekend since I made it.

I made a sweater in July and I don't care.  It's super snuggly and I will wear it even though the hem band is all wonky.

I was a little afraid to wear this out, and then literally 7 or 8 people said they loved it just as I was walking down the street, which has never happened to me basically ever.

So much amazing crafty goodness on this board, I can't even process the amount of inspiration!
