I just got home from vacation to a lovely surprise- my IYP package from rackycoo. I received some crazy amazing things from her, and am absolutely thrilled!
First of all, what could be better than receiving an altoid tin of bits and bobs from such an amazing altered artist?? A tiny glow in the dark skeleton, an eye(!), cigar band, rusty stuff, dresden trim, cool graphics, so much awesome stuff to play with.
She made me a gorgeous bee themed book box with matching tags (my hubby and I are beekeepers). I love the colors and papers she used and the flowers on the front are beautiful.
When you open it, there's a little pearl-lined opening that showcases a bee with the most amazing patina on it. The interior paper is honeycomb. It's just perfect!
But the best part... there is a tealight set into the base that allows me to put a spotlight on the bee! I had a really hard time getting photos today. I couldn't wait to share what I received! I'll bug rackycoo to post each and everything she made me in a separate thread with her own photos so the rest of Craftster can ooh and ahh.
Prepare to be jealous. She made me a peg doll. A ZOMBIE peg doll! She's holding a severed hand. How awesome is this?! I'm such a dork, I'd much prefer a zombie peg doll than a cutesy one. She's awesome.
And most amazing of all... she painted a portrait of my cat Bindi. The PERFECT likeness of her. This is an absolute treasure that already has a spot in my living room...
Right next to the perfect painting she did of our dog Jenna a few years ago right before she passed away. I am so lucky. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, rackycoo.
