Woohoo!!!! Pictures as promised!!!! Along with a more detailed listing of all cairnlae's hard work!!!!
This is whole kit and kaboodle!!!! I'm telling you, that can was STUFFED!!!! To protect the can for mailing, she wrapped it in brown paper and wrote "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. - Picasso" I hadn't heard that one before, but I really like it!!!!
A close up of the can! See what I mean about the ribbon? If I didn't suck at collage, I'd make a can that looks like this!!!!
The circle/frilly object leanuing against the bread is a fabulous pin!!!! The piece of cloth right in front of that is what the magnets came wrapped in! Speaking of magnets, in this picture, you can see the glittery fun moon magnet, the Frido Kahlo magnet, Victoria Regina magnet, Fun Lady in Sunglasses magnet, and the Hi! magnet! Frido and the Sunglasses lady are both bottle tops, the moon is a baby food jar lid(?), and the remaing ones are marble magnets!!!! They all make me smile!!!!
Now you can see the two awesome necklaces she sent me!!!! One is this amazing cylinder of beads and the other is a delightful string of flowers made from beads! And how perfect is that? I had one like this (but white in between each flower) that I loved, but some guy I work with was stupid and accidentally broke it. Beads scattered and I couldn't find them all and couldn't really get the knack of putting it back together. But now I have this one that I love!!!! I simply won't wear it to work. You can also see the very awesome earrings she sent to me! I always see these beads in the shops, but I don't know what to do with them. Now I know!!!!
Here you get another view of the cylinder of beads necklace I was talking about, a brighter picture of one of the earrings, and two cuffs made from ties! I love them both! Fabulous colors, fabulous idea, and fabulous button on the one in the front!!!! You can also see the two rubbery frogs, Ned and Fred (what? They needed names!)
Now how cool is that? That is a pin made from a can! Go recycling! I'll never know how you got the ends smooth enough that even clumsy me hasn't managed to cut myself with it, but I am so grateful!!!!
My chocolate frog and his two rubbery friends!! As you can see, The chocolate frog also had garnet and gold ribbon! I feel all Harry Pottery now!!!! I think I'm going to try putting one of the frogs in some soap I'm making this weekend! I've always wanted to try that and now I have a way!!!!
Thanks again Cairnlae!!!! This rocks my socks!!!! I love it all and I'm so grateful to you for all your hard work!!!!
