Here I thought that I was the only one who thought of using sequins for the scales of a mermaid tail. This is cute. What are you going to use the work for? Are you just going to hang it up like a painting?
I made it for someone in the Ongoing Wish Swap. I am not sure what she is going to do with it but I left it in the hoop so it can be hung on the wall. I am 99% sure she has a hoopla wall with a collection of hoops she has received hanging on it.
I received yesterday from Gigglygirl yesterday too! This package was packed so full! I was super spoiled. Beware there are a lot of pictures, I aplologize for the quality but it was dark and I had a to use a flash..... Here is everything that came out of the box along with a few extras..
Wrapped up in the awesome lepoard print tissue was this little trinket box
OMG look at all these awesome charms!
Next up was this zipper pouch (I love the fabric)
and inside I found my very first dotee (so cute) and some animals and knights
Then I opened this cool envelope
and found some pretty papers and pictures
Finally I opened the big box with the dottee on the front
Inside there was so much stuff! Everything all together
And some close ups
I love containers within containers!
Finally some of my favorite parts are all the other dotees I recieved!
Aren't they so cute???
Thanks so much Gigglygirl for an awesome package! I can't wait to sort through everything again and start putting things on display.
So glad it arrived and you liked your whimsies! I was afraid I didn't send enough but it looks like a lot more now that everything spread out all over your table! I thought you could use the felt, ribbons, and things in your dotee makings. One of the little packages of stuff reminded me of belt buckles! I have had the hair stuff forever and glad I was finally able to pass it on to someone who may get some use out of it.
I was tricked by the DC# yesterday and my package wasn't waiting for me, but today it says it's out for delivery. I can't wait to get off work and go paw through my whimsies!
It sounds nasty out Monica! I hope it clears out fast and you have a nice quiet crafty day
So big news, the offer I put in on a house was accepted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now everyone cross their fingers that the rest of this process goes smoothly. I have a feeling I am going to have a stressful month coming up
Now I am REALLY decorating in my head! Going to keep adding things to my home pin board for inspiration!
