Night Elf ATC swap

I have been wanting to do another ATC swap on Swap-Bot again.  And feeling inspired, I thought I would challenge myself to a hand drawn theme.  I found a small swap that was doing a Night Elf theme from World of War Craft (W.O.W.).  I have heard of the game, thought I have never played it.  After doing some research on Google here is what I came up with:

A Pinterest Christmas

I will admit.  I am addicted to Pinterest.   I just wish Pinterest was around when I got married seven years ago!  There has been a popular Christmas pin floating around that I wanted to try.

So armed with my coupons, off to Michaels I went to replicate this idea.  I am very please with the results!

Only thing I did different was I just made one and I splurged on a battery powered light set.  I am trying to control myself because I want to make more!

Here is the original link to the creator behind the idea:

Artsy Fartsy Stuff

The Beast's school is having a dinner and movie night this week.  The theme is "At the Drive Inn" and everyone is encourage to create a car out of a cardboard box.  Puddin wanted Lighting McQueen and since Beast is Patrick Starfish; I created the boat Sponge Bob drove while taking his drivers test.

cardboard car and boat

And now for a little sick and twisted.  I finally gotten around to attaching my unicorn head to a plaque.  It makes a nice addition to my Halloween decor.  But  may just leave it up so any future guests can raise their eyebrows at it.  Its just how I roll.

Patrick Starfish Costume

My original inspiration for this costume came from here:


I found a SpongeBob costume, but it only fits my youngest. But The Beast was okay with the idea of being Patrick for Halloween. Only problem, the only costumes I could find were either in adult male size or the "Sex Kitten" style for women.

I do need to fix the elastic on one arm. But I am thumbing my nose at it because I ended up breaking four needles on my machine trying to sew it on.

I am so drained creatively and may take a short vacation from making anything. But I have three more Minion hats I need to crochet for Christmas photos!

And artists work is never done.
