Oh. My. God!!!  I received the most amazing Forest Spirit" dotee from cmarion3!!! It's so beautiful....so much texture and detail! I LOVE IT!!    Thank you so much!!

Hmmm....just reviewed my post and it looks like the picture isn't showing up....I'll have to fix it when I can get on the laptop....sorry.



Great...now it's sideways  Huh  It wasn't sideways when I uploaded it...I'm sorry
cmarion3, I'll try to fix it, but, at least people can get an idea of how AWESOME it is!!

I'm so sorry, I tried rotating the picture to fix it, but, no matter what I do it still posts sideways....weird)
 
(I'm afraid my dotee will not measure up

Cool!  (until the photo hosting gets fixed, so many things are sideways...)


Bugaboo1 made me a lovely chesapeake bay hermit crab:


So cute!! And decorating its shell with shells.  (My husband saw me unbox it with back lighting & so I had to convince him it was not an eldritch horror.)


Feets!


...but that is all the pictures you get, because then my child stole my phone & started taking video selfies.   Roll Eyes

Glad he arrived in one piece! The shells are all from the Chesapeake Watershed area from various areas in the south so I thought it was fitting! When the crab was in pieces and drying I had laid it out of the way and forgot I put it there. I went to the area to get something bent over and it was in front of my face and it freaked me out! I thought it was a huge spider LOL Don't think I have ever scared myself with my own crafting before.

I had hermit crabs for over ten years and I miss the little guys!  I think that dottee belongs to me!  Wink  Next time I'm in a dottee swap, I'm gong to ask for a hermit crab dottee.  What a great idea!  And what great execution of this one!   Shocked

Ahh, finally got pics. Received a sweetie from WiccadWitch. It's funny we both had similar themes and picked similar themes. I love this sweet forest spirit. Such a serene face. She's so calming. I always over embellish so this perfectly (not overly) embellished dotee made my day. She's hanging by my desk spreading calm.

Received from The Raging Sloth! I am so thrilled with this cute little joined Dotee pair!



They are Kodama from Hayao Miyazakis Princesses Mononokelittle wood sprites that live in trees. Sloth did a perfect job copying their whimsical expressions and body language, and she even perched them on a real branch. The yarn moss has such an excellent texture. They are precious, and I adore them! Thank you, Raging Sloth!!! Cheesy

Heres a slightly closer view of the cuteness, showing their faces and the lovely leaf beads on the vines. Smiley

Everybody did an amazing job! I love all the dotees!!!

EriChanHime wowed me! Look at this beautiful dotee!!!


You have no idea how long I've wanted an Elder Thing!! The Elder Thing is from the H.P. Lovecraft story At The Mountains of Madness. This dude is so cool!



The wings are poseable and made from maybe a plastic bag? Cool! The tentacles on the bottom and on top are sculpted.




I'm in love~~~ lol I've placed him next to my little blind albino penguin since they're part of the same story.  
Thank you, EriChan!

Thank you, EriChan!

Thank you for organizing this amazing swap for us all, The Raging Sloth!

You are SO welcome! I had such fun making your mini-Elder Thing, and I knew you AND your albino penguin would welcome him quickly into the family. Grin

You're super close on the wings. They are a wire framework, sandwiched between four layers of plastic cling film which I melted to shape with a hot air gun and then painted! I think they must have changed what they make that stuff out of, because it used to be MUCH easier to heat form--I went through 5 or 6 other wings before settling on a texture I liked. Cheesy Totally worth it! I was originally planning to attach his wings, and then when I realized that the tension of the body sections would hold them in place, I thought it would be more fun (and also MUCH safer to mail) to leave them separate. He can show his moods with wing position, like dogs' ears. *snicker* Grin

I love the fluff and little paws on the cat dotee, Bwisneski. He looks very pleased with himself. Wink

WiccadWitch, you did a wonderful job making such an elegant, serene lady. The beads you chose are excellent-they look so cool and smooth.

And that cactus, whatthepuck! His expression is perfect. Your stitching is very neat and even! I'm still working on that. Smiley

I love the integration of the sewn/sculpted parts of the hermit crab with the real found shells, Bugaboo1. Perfect choice!

I think my posts got lost for the lovely leaf butterfly from Thanate and the fluffy lady from cmarion3 (Or maybe they are hiding back in the discussion thread). Wonderful colors on the butterfly and such a clever design. I adore autumn leaves, so thought that was excellent! And the face and texture on the lady suit so well. All the layers are fun to look at.

AWESOME JOB, EVERYONE! It's all looking amazing so far. Grin

Leave it to your partner to break the mold on dotees. What a creation!

The variety and creativeness of these dotees are legendary! Cactus and cats and crabs, forest sprites and leaf butterflies, Kodama, and a....thing.

Fun times.

I received form Griminspirations Cheesy And she's beautiful! Here are the pics: (sorry for the quality, I tend to have shaky hands so taking good pics is hit or miss...)

This is everything together: she was wrapped in that amazing fabric and I also got some fun buttons that I'm really going to have to find a good project for because they are great.


The dotee herself is amazing, I love the flower in the middle and I love the way the wheat sheaf look. She's got a heavy macrame-wrapped bead/stone as a tail.



And here she is in her new home, next to a dotee from my first doteeswap actually:


Thank you so much, I really love my dotee Cheesy

Oh, I missed this one! Nice job, Griminspirations! I love the mix of summer/harvest you get from this little lady. The wheat is a cool touch, and things wrapped in macrame are always nifty. Smiley

Okay everything I have seen in this swap is amazing, so much creativity!! :-)
 
Im sorry it has taken me so long to post what I have received from NathanielM93
He took my themes of Cryptids & Sloths and needle felted this little guy.
It is so very cool I had a bit of a time getting a good pic, thus these few angles.
But he will be added to my bed of sloths.


He arrived with a note that icluded creature info.  He also came wrapped in the
Fabric he is sitting on.:-)


A little close up.


Check out that face (aww) but that hair is epic.

Thank you so much for making this little guy NathanielM93 I LOVE it!
