The suncatcher is hung at my kitchen window!!  It is lovely in the sun and since it is not too little and wobbly, the kittens do not seem to be interested in grabbing at it!!  I am definitely going to try two things: melted beads and shrinky dinks!!

Vintage buttons are always good!!  I just bought an entire jar for about $2.00!!

I'm subscribed to be notified about new posts on this thread, but it doesn't seem to be working! I even tried to disable and then re-enable the notification but it doesn't work! Has anybody had this problem? Huh

Hmmm I don't use the email notification, just the 'new replies to your posts' and that is working.

I believe that Melesse has received but we are just waiting on pictures  Smiley

Everyone should have feedback. If you do not, please let me know and I will fix it right away. Thanks again everyone for being so great in this swap!

I did my write up about the great things I got from firehead4 on the last page, but I'd hate to have the pictures missed so I'm doing another post instead of editing.

The box everything arrived in:


And the awesomeness contained inside:


Thanks again, firehead4!

Thanks, SewPixie. The bowl was quite simple. I paper mached a basic bowl (used another bowl for a mold) I didn't make paper mache paste, but rather used wallpaper paste (my favorite decoupage medium as well!). For the top layer (or inner bowl section) I paper mached paisley TISSUE paper (thank you Joann Fabrics cashier!--they have the BEST free tissue paper at the checkout counter!) and then varnished over that. I painted the bottom of the bowl black. Easy Peasy! 
If you try it, please post pictures so I can see!
