Oh, gosh, everyones packages are wonderful. It's like Christmas around here!  Cheesy

I received a wonderful package from PerfectlyBohemian on Thursday and was not able to post pictures until today. My apologies, PB!

Here is what met my eyes when I unloaded the box...
So many bright and colorful packages!

 An overall shot of what she sent and then some details....

Everything had a label and a great explanation of what each objects was about. She even sent something for MacGyver.
So very thoughtful and kind! (the Gardetto's and the bottle opener were addressed to him)
The bottle opener is the favor that was given at PB's wedding. Her hubby is a fab fan of home brew and so is mine, so it was perfect!

She hand painted lovely small pictures of her kitties and turned them into magnets. They are really adorable! PerfectlyBohemian
is a real renaissance woman...lots of skill in many areas!

She felted this absolutely gorgeous little sleeping bunny brooch complete with greenery and tiny little mushrooms.

Sewed and felted this beautiful sunflower brooch (her favorite flower)......

Transformed a sweet little doll into an enchanted forest being......

And burned this beautiful honey bee and comb on a truly lovely wooden spoon.

PerfectlyBohemian sent her favorite snacks, including some delish chocolate, crunchy seaweed wafers, Gardettos (for MacGyver) and some yummy coffee!
At lastly, some great books..she and I both share a love of books.

After opening the bounty PB sent, I learned that we have so many interests in common. So far, it's been really wonderful sharing with you!
Thank you so very much!

I just received the most amazing, enchanting piece of art from Killam Creative. It's gorgeous and I can't say how much I love it!
Pictures speak louder than words, so here they are:

A beautiful Fairy Forest shadow box. All the little details are wonderful....


It's truly an enchanting little jewel of a thing. The pictures don't convey how delicate it is and it smells really good!
So much sensory stuff going on. KC, thank you so much....I truly love it and will treasure it. ((Hugs))

3  Miniature Christmas Tree Kit in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cackle on: September 20, 2014 03:33:58 PM
My sister and I were partners for the IYP swap and she mentioned that she like my Christmas tree ornaments, so I decided to make her a kit in miniature-
A dozen 1 inch by 1 inch ornaments (plus two 1/2 inch ones).

I had an old cigar box that I covered with some nice red and green papers. I left some of the wood
showing as it was so pretty.

I made dividers out of book board and covered them with the same papers, glued them in and used some gold ink on the edges.

I used lots of different papers for the ornaments (which are 1"x 1" blocks) and a lot of Stickles sparkles and
metal findings and beads. I drilled holes top and bottom in each ornament (after I covered them with paper) and used E6000 to glue the beaded head pins in place.

I made a Merry Christmas banner and covered an oblong piece of book board in green paper to wrap the banner on to keep it tidy.
I found some tiny red and gold garland, tied them up with ribbon and added those as well.

A fun and very rewarding project!

I just received some true snark from the lovely Mistress Jennie!

Behold! The snakiest refrigerator magnets this side of the Mason-Dixon line......

A little closer shot so you can see the wee barbed comments.

Jennie knows how much I love to alter things, so she sent along a few extras:

She used these cute labels on the back of each magnet, but I neglected to take pics of the back.
(been up since 3 am...my mind is not at it's best.  Tongue)

Thank you, Jennie! I love them and they are on my frig right this minute.  Kiss

5  'Jennie's Favorite' Plaque in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cackle on: September 11, 2014 04:36:06 PM
I made this plaque for the fabulous Mistress Jennie as we're partners in the Snarky Housewife Swap.
It's a 6 x 6 canvas board with a big cut out of her favorite gin. I shrunk some tarot cups cards to fit the lady's hand. I love the one on the bottom left with the ice cubes and her legs in the air!

In the original image, she was being handed a tall glass of Budweiser. Yuck! perfect switcheroo.  Grin

I tried to get a picture of the thumb as it's a bit three dimensional, but it's not showing up very well.

It was fun making this for you, Jennie dear!

6  Bird Shrine in Completed Projects by cackle on: August 14, 2014 05:56:22 AM
I made this shrine for PerfectlyBohemian in the Whimsical Shrine swap.
I found this little cupboard thingy at Goodwill. Here is what it looked like after I took the doors off and gave it a bit of primer.

Here it is finished:

The twigs are dead fall from my dogwood trees. The flowers are raw brass stampings enameled with nail polish, the little eggs are felted, papers are G45.

I also made little bird cards that I tucked into the drawer, but because 'out of sight is out of mind' I forgot to take pictures of them. Ah, well!

PerfecltyBohemian and I exchanged our shrines in person late this morning/early afternoon and boy oh boy, did she outdo herself!
I am so delighted and happy to have PB as my partner!
Here is the wonderful Shrine she made for me:
 It's a solar powered lantern!

I adore it. She hand made everything in there, from the polymer clay sprite, the beautifully done shrine behind her head and the stunning moth at her feet!
The background forest scene is all hand painted as well.

Every detail is so well thought out and crafted. The tiny mushrooms, the eggs, her wee hat. (Sorry about the reflection of my fingers in the glass)

Her hair is made of mohair and her nest sits on a spool! Lovely!

PerfectlyBohemian even painted some beautiful birds she sees in her back garden on the back of the lantern.

A charming, lovely thing to have in my home! PB, thank you so much for all your care and thoughtfulness! I love what you made me and it has been a privilege to be your partner.  Kiss

I just received this spectacular tin from felicitybaby.

I was thoroughly stalked by fb! She discovered my fondness for the Fiji Mermaid and ran with it.

This piece is so well done, with all the wonderful little details. fb, am I right in saying you made the ringmasters coat and hat? They are awesome!
All the details are wonderful and the finishing is great.
And I must say, a very cool way to re-purpose a Barbie Doll!

I'm thrilled to own this! Thank you for swapping with me, felicitybaby, you are awesome.  Kiss

I received the most charming spool from Knickertwist.....

Knickers knows how much I love hares and she really hit a home run with this winsome fellow!

The spool is dripping with gorgeous lace and the hare is hand sculpted from paper clay. Wonderful!
I really like the soft color palate she chose, I adore everything about this lovely, lovely piece.
Thank you Knickers!  Kiss
