awww, you all made me happy ! thanks for the compliments, i was slightly concerned that people might find it too
kitsch (i personally think there's nothing too kitsch)
Psyche: i haven't seen that book, but i'm going to check it out, thanks !
Raina:i'm glad your plastic beads are going to get a new crafty life, i actually used e6000 for everything, which probably isn't ideal. i think hot glue would work well.
if either of you (or anyone
) makes one i'd love to see the results !
