I received from the uber-talented Onyxnox at the end of last week, and have been having a knock-down-drag-out fight with my photos to try to get them to appear in the correct orientation ever since. So first off, I have to apologize if these are sideways. I am currently on a PC and they look correct to me, but if they look messed up, please let me know!
Onyxnox chose my owl theme, and I cannot express how much I love this block!
First, there's a tag. And this is one of my favorite poems from childhood, which she did not know beforehand. (I love when that happens!)
Then, comes the absolutely stunning, beautiful, incredibly crafted block! The poem is stamped onto the ribbons, and part of it appears on the block itself. All the leaves are glass beads and she has hand wired everything on there to look like branches... amazing. And the moons! I love the moons.
Sorry for all the pics, but there is just so much to look at here -- I wanted everyone to get a good view! Thank you so much Onyxnox -- I keep looking at this and thinking, "I can't believe that is mine! Someone made me that!" You pretty much made my January.
