SPOILER ALERT! If you are Tif from Beaverton turn back now!

As promised I am sharing my creation for the Craft Swap I am participating in, sponsored by Urban Craft.

Of course, I have mentioned it was a Meomi inspired craft.  If you don't know Meomi, you don't know craft.   I was going to say shit but that seemed inappropriate.  I will admit.  I didn't know Meomi before doing this swap and I am hooked.  This is my kinda stuff.  I LOVE MEOMI.  The illustrations are ridiculous.  The colors are incredible.  If I studied art (why didn't I study art?)  I would have studied this brilliance.  It's happy, smart and cute.  I love the cuteness.    Sooooo.....without further is my craft swap swapiness.

This is my paper/fabric collage of my interpretation of The Octonauts.  Here I have constructed an Octonaut Aquarium.

This photo helps give an small example of the dimension, there is dimension, I swear!  And, that bottle in the's special Octonaut food.  Yummy.

This is the back.  It follows the back of the Meomi books with a cute little message.  This has been super fun for me.  I love the challenge.  I hope Tif loves it too.  Fingers crossed?!

  4. Wow! Soooo cool! I guess I don't know craft, I've missed the boat on Meomi! Off to Google :) But seriously, I love the aquarium! I imagine little people would go NUTS over it :)

  6. Your creation is totally cute and creative. I love the three-dimensional aspect of it! This was my first swap and I've got to say, I think I'm hooked. I enjoyed every part of it - the creating, the anticipating, and the receiving!
