Elk Christmas Cards

I settled for rather easy ones and started mass-producing them (okay.... i made like 15 or so).
It's not my design, but from a book my mom owns. I just changed little things :)

Overall it was a very sad christmas this year... even worse than last year. : /
I still have no words and only wish there was less evil in the world.

I still think the pattern is quite strange...

Christmas Cookies

I already made them like two weeks ago, but forgot to share them :D
We actually made even more, but I didn't take pictures of everything since I gave most of them away the next day.

Nearly all of them are already gone. ;)

First Advent

I hope you all have a nicer first Advent than me. After being finally happy after a very long harsh time, the last month through me back and I feel worse than before.
I'm just praying the situation will solve itself as soon as possible :(

First adventures in felting...

...and kinda failing :P

I wanted to try out felting and thought the flowers would be the easiest to do for a beginner.

They look okay, but there's quite some room for improvement ;)

Pink bunny ATC and mini amigurumi bunny

I know I'm neglecting this blog horribly. First I was simply lazy, but in August I started a new work and while I finally got my inspiration back, I'm just too tired all the time to craft.

But last week I finally pulled myself together and made mimchan her little bunny I promised her months ago (or was it already a year???)

If I had done this properly, one could wear it as a necklace or something. I also made a fitting ATC...sadly I rushed that one, too. Now I wish I had taken more time.

Thanks for looking! :)

My little Pony ATCs

Yes...even more ATCs! They are like the only things I'm able to finish with my lack of motivation. original... a Strawberry Pony :P
 I tried G4 style. Sadly the glue came through. I'll only use glue sticks from now on

Without and with flash.

Strawberry needlebook

I got one of these from Mimchan and I just had to steal her idea :D

I made them from leftover fabric and they weren't hard to do at all...well only that mine doesn't fit together as well as hers. I'm just not as good sticking with patterns :P

Sorry, the pictures didn't turn out very well. That red fabric is really strange.
I made two of them. One as a present and the one to keep :P

ATCs's been quite a while since I had something to post.

I'm so honored that I was able to swap with Kira from I LOVE her crafts and she is the reason I got interested in Inchies and ATCs and in the first place.

I made a few ATCs and send her the ones I liked best :P

Most turned out really plain. I wish I did some better with the cross-stitch looks so boring, especially with so much white space left on the top.

What's worse? They look so lame compared to the ones I received from Kira.

Awwwwwww~ cute Monster with real cicada wings and an adorable rabbit *___*

Spider Bookthong

Made for the Harry Potter craftalong at ! It was supposed to be a quick simple project, but I totaly messed it up. Somehow I failed to figure out how to crochet a spider web. At first I wanted to do a necklace, but it ended up as a simple bookthong because I just couldn't figure the pattern out.
Hmm....I'm not so happy how it turned out, but at least I've done something :P

Presents :)

Ooops, been so long since my last post. In January my reaction to the horrible news was to just NOT think and craft as much as possible. Now my reaction is not being friggin' able to do ANYTHING! It's so frustrating :( It was my birthday recently and got many nice presents that I want to show off! From Mim-Chan I got this cute rabbit plushie! It's so soft and cuddly *-* And a needle book in the shape of an envelope. I soooo needed a needlebook of some form because my needles are like everywhere but never where I need them. Plus a super cute bookthong, a hand drawn card and a neko charm. Thank you again so much :)
I joined a My little Pony/Toy collectors forum not too long ago and everyone is so nice. These are the presents I got from Trixi-
....and ALL THIS I got from Moonbubble. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the package
More of Moonbubbles presents. The felt Pony I got from her as part as a swap.
Isn't all of this awesome?! It's so awesome, yet I feel kinda...bad, because I don't think I deserve so much kindness. I want to give everyone a proper 'Thank you', but my lack of motivation is crippling my abilitiy to craft ;__;

Mini-Mini Amigurumi bunny

 I made it for a small private swap. This bunny is nothing new as I already made a few of them, but this time I made him a small bunny tail :p Somehow I never did this with the bunnies I made before.

Mini origami cranes

These are the smallest I can do. I made them as part of a fun little swap :) The biggest mistake oyu can make  is using paper that is too thick. With thicker paper the last step will become impossible hard to do!

Thanks for looking! I know I'm incredibly lazy (not only) crafting wise, but 2012 just isn't my year :/

Little Shrine with Skull

With all those amazing shrines and altered tins popping up everywhere I gave it a try, too. They are great for getting rid of scrap paper and other small pieces.

I actually wanted to do spring shrine...but somehow it turned out comepletly opposite of what I wanted at first. So it isn't the best, but not too shabby for a first try and I really like the color :)

I really want to do some more!

The Goonies ATC - Chunk

I love this movie and Chunk is so cute :)

Done with pencils and coverd with clear acrylic laquer. It's a great way to seal the colors and make it more durable. Depending on how many layers you use it gives the picture a nice shine.

Mini-mini Amigurumi dog

I wanted to try out this pattern for a long time this was quite a lot of work.

I don't know...I never get the snouts right when seing them on.

My little Pony ATCs - Applejack and Fluttershy

They were pretty fun and easy to draw :)

Maybe I'll do some of the other characters, too. Or some 80s ponies!

Well..April should be better :)

Fairy Tale ATCs

Sorry, I'm so very unproductive and lazy at the moment :(

The only thing I can share are these fairy tale ATCs I already made in february. I made them for the ongoing ATC swap and somehow forgot to post them.

The one on top is based on a fairy tale by the Grimm brothers. It's called 'The twelve brothers' and not really much known. Then I HAD to make one of my favourite fairy tale 'The little mermaid' by Andersen. So sad! And last but not least 'Frau/Mother Holle'. My ATCs are always so I wanted to make at least one with mixed media.

Thanks for looking!

The first two ATCs I made for the last months ongoing ATC swap. The themes were Manga and fantasy. The character on the orange ATC is Tsuruga Ren from the Manga Skip Beat! I'm not really familiar with the series, but that's nothing a google image search and wikipedia can't fix :p

Spiderman hoopla

Let's start with a real new post =)

I google searched an image, traced it on some left over fabric and started stitching. Couldn't be so hard, right?! Well... it was harder than I thought it would be to make even stitches. It also took much, much longer than I thought it would.

It turned out okay... I just really dislike the spider on his chest. Looks like an ant! >__>

New old blog!

I imported all my posts from my "main" blog to this new blog, because I wanted a blog purely for craft and swap related stuff. Everything crafty will from nowon be found here :)

The design is still very basic. I hope to change it soon to something more original.

Yay~ it already arrived!
I made this cardstock bookmark and a matching bookthong for the bookmark swap round 5 at At first I was at a loss what to make because I didn't know the books she mentioned, but after some stalking I got a few ideas =)

I crocheted the cupcake with a 0.6 hook and sewing yarn. I had to redo parts of it three times because I just couldn't get the pattern right ^^;

Well...I had fun making them =)

I did this "My Neighbor Totoro" (a very cute animated movie by Studio Ghibli everyone should see ;) ) Pop-up card a few days ago just for fun. This kind of pop-up card is very easy to do, but looks pretty neat =D
