Gypsy Swap

Last month, I signed up for Alpha Stamps Gypsy themed swap and I've finally finished my pieces.  I had fun working on this swap and I'm excited to see the returns I receive.  All of the work I've gotten returned from the swaps there has been fabulous!  Here's a picture of the pieces that I'll be sending out in the mail tomorrow first thing!  On another, but related note, a design team member at AS is having a blog tutorial on building a mini apothecary shop and all of the goodies to go in it.  I am SO EXCITED for this.  I've never participated in anything like this, but can't wait to give it a try.  I was literally drooling over her work, it's so awesome!  Go here to see what I'm talking about!

Creeper and Cute...

So, I am continuing working in my latest media obsession of choice, felt.  I made two more creatures.  One scores pretty high on the creepy scale (but I still really like it, I think the doll eyes really push it over the top), and the other is a cute little robot.  For those of you that know me, it was only a matter of time before I made a robot.  Think I will probably do another one, but I think this time I'd make it more dimensional to be more boxy like a robot.  I'm sure I'll come up with some more creepy ones too.  I've been hitting the internet looking for some inspiration, so I'm sure something will strike my fancy soon enough!

What I did on Saturday...

So I have had a high interest in creating "creatures" from felt lately.  So what did I do pretty much all day today (and part of yesterday) in any spare time I had...?  I had a first attempt at creating some felt creatures inspired by the book Zombie Felties.  I love everything Halloween inspired, so this book was definitely right up my alley!  I had a lot of fun making these and maybe I'll try to create a robot one next.  Oh yeah, I've decided that I do not like to use craft glue for felt.  It really doesn't stick very easily, or hold very well either.
