Play it forward treasury - Scaling it down

One of my items, the blue knitted scarf http://www.etsy.com/listing/87580968/scarf-knitted-with-blue-textured-italian?ref=tre-2001427691-16   was featured in the treasury "Just an Old Fashioned Love Song" by Curator  http://www.etsy.com/shop/FingerLakesFinds  who sells Vintage Christmas Past and More.  FREE SHIPPING! Purchase any 3 or more Christmas items and receive free shipping on your order!!!!! Good for USA sales only.

This is the treasury I'm featured in:

This is a "Play it forward Treasury" which means I need to pick an item from the Curator shop and list it in the first spot of a treasury I put together and then pick other items to fill in the rest of the spaces.  The rules are:
1. If you are in this treasury make a treasury using 1 of my items in the first spot.
2. Post these rules in your treasury. Then they will post their treasury and we keep going.
3. Post a comment.
This is a pretty cool way to get your items and shop promoted.  Of course not everybody likes doing this but it's still fun if you end up in just a couple of treasuries and see what people come up with.

I picked a vintage scale from the Curator shop as my first item listed in the treasury I decided to make.  I thought naming it "Scaling it down" would be a neat theme so I went looking for miniature items on the homespunsociety team I'm a member of and this is what I came up with.  I can't wait to see what all the other folks will come up with using one of my items in spot # 1 of their treasuries.

More blue love hearts

So I couldn't stop crocheting these cute little hearts the other day when I made the garland and decided to sell these without making them into a bunting/garland.  I figured somebody might have fun with these using them for scrapbooking, decorating a pillow, a jacket or whatever else you can think of.  I found this cute little heart box at the craft store and I couldn't believe what a perfect fit they are for all my little hearts!   Anyway, there are 9 of them in the little box.  I had 10 and since that one didn't fit into the box I used it to decorate the box on the outside with it.  That way you can actually tell from the outside what's on the inside!  I'm now working on some more little hearts since I found yet another little heart container, a metal one this time that will hold less then 9 but it has a see through top so I thought that would be just as perfect as the other one I already made up and is now for sale in my BitsOfFiber shop.  Here are a couple pictures but if you like to see more then click on this link   http://www.etsy.com/listing/91920609/crochet-heart-appliques-for-decorations?ref=pr_shop    which will take you to the item in my shop.  Come back in the next couple of days to check out the other ones I'm working on.  They are a very pretty salmon color.

My chocolate valentine!

Chocolate runs through my veins!  I was born and raised in Belgium ... that could be the answer.   I guess that was a good enough excuse to make up a sweet chocolaty treasury full of yummies!  No drooling allowed please.

A black heart affair

Last post of the day!    Couldn't resist making another Valentine treasury when I saw the tie with the hearts my mind went strolling along the Etsy boulevard looking for more black hearts and look what I found!  

Heart bunting or valentine garland

I wasn't sure where to put this little garland ... with my baby items or in my other shop.  I ended up putting them in my baby shop.  I will be making more of them in different colors but I thought this one was very pretty in a copper mist cotton thread.  It can be used for either a boy or a girl's room, a wedding gift, birthday gift etc.   I have a cute little heart box to put them in to keep them in when not in use or when giving them as a gift to someone else.  I had a heck of a time trying to get some decent pictures of them.  They are available in my BitsOfFiber shop by clicking on this link:    http://www.etsy.com/listing/91092942/heart-garland-for-baby-room-valentine

Valentines for him!

Lots of cool finds for your guy so check out all the items and each shop listed to find more fantastic gifts for that special man in your life!

Baby love old and new

A treasury made with 100% homespunsociety team members on Etsy.   

A beautiful swan pendant

My 15 yr old daughter made this gorgeous little swan pendant.  She did this without any instructions, just looked at a picture of a swan and off she went!  It's made out of Fimo clay.  Isn't it just darling.  I love it.  She's making some to put up for sale in my PurplePlatypus shop.  As soon as they are available I will be putting up a post to let you know.  Let us know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by.  

Soothing mauves and greens ... You and me forever

I did go to art school many many years ago but always disliked having to work with the color wheel so I basically ignored it and still do when I make things.  Sometimes people make comments about the "unusual" color combinations they find in my art work, being it with colored fleece, yarn or paint.  I've thought of going back and study the color wheel to see what is suppose to work well together and what not but I've been told not to do just that and keep going with whatever I think feels and looks right.  Doing that makes my work what it is, makes it just a bit different from others and as long as it looks good to me and good enough to others I'm happy.  

Today I put together this treasury for you ... mauves, greens, pink and purples ... I love these colors.  Makes me think of rhubarb.   Hope you like it as well!  The treasury that is ...

White fluff falling from the sky!!!! It snowed!!

Ohhhh, I love the snow, I really really do. It makes me smile every time. When I left work today I had to clean off my car, it had about 2 inches of snow on it. Other people probably think I'm crazy but I love cleaning snow off the car, shoveling the driveway, I truly enjoy it. Only time I get frustrated is if we have 2 feet of heavy wet snow that I need to remove, my tennis elbow doesn't like that very much. But today, it was only 2 inches on the car, our driveway was still clear so no shoveling tonite but ohhh how pretty it looks outside, everything is covered with a blanket of snow. Loving it.

Did you know that swans mate forever! Anyway, my daughter rented the movie "Black Swan" the other day so I watched it with her. Hmmm, it was a pretty "dark" movie I must say kinda in a horror way which I had not expected but all in all it was pretty good. Very interesting view and how it all came together. Sometimes I ask my kid to give me a color combo to put together a treasury at first she said black and silver since she was busy making a beautiful swan pendant out of polymer clay but then she said base it on black swan ... so I did and here it is ...

Faux cake anybody?

I wasn't sure if I was going to turn this into a child faux cake toy or a giant pincushion. I decided for the latter since this will make a lovely Valentine or Mother's day gift. And, if somebody decides to purchase it for a child toy so be it. Only thing I want to make sure of is that if it's going to be played with they need to remove the three heart pins it comes with!

Anyway, here it is ... a sweet CALORIE FREE cake to please your sweet heart!!! Just listed it in my PurplePlatypus store which you can get to by clicking this link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90000743/crocheted-felted-heart-cake-pincushion?ref=pr_shop

Love beyond the moon and stars and Loving it!

Made these treasury based upon Valentines day again. This time I went a different route, not so many hearts but stars instead. Didn't want to go all red or pink so more on the darker, aqua, blue-ish and green-ish side. Then in the "Loving it" I went for black and white with a hint of red.

Itty bitty little owl, a baby seal and 3 mice!

Just listed these little guys in both my shops. When I made one of these play houses my mind just went crazy thinking up all these combinations of animals and little houses I could make. So off I went, these are my latest two. The owl and the baby seal.

The mice are catnip filled toys for your kitten or cat(s), these are not for children to play with. My daughter actually makes them, she's 15 and wants to make some extra money. I suggested making these cat toys and she's been selling them like crazy lately which makes her very happy!

Working on a couple more things that need some finishing touches but those are probably not going to be ready till later this week.

Off we go ... a new year to look forward too!

I've been working on a couple of projects and need to put the finishing touches on them. As soon as they are ready and weather permitting I can take pictures and put them up for sale and on my blog for you to check out!

I made this treasury yesterday but didn't get the chance to put it up yet so here it is now ...
