As promised, here are the lovely "tweets" I received from MotionIsPantomine.. .
All the items together...everythi ng c o o r d i n a t e s!

A picture frame that says "free as a bird in the sky"

A deep green wooden box, handpainted and decoupaged. It says, "fly fly away" The sides of the boxes (pictured in first picture) have a very pretty scroll detailing that was painted(?) or drawn on.

An ATC card that says, "explore the sky the world your life". The card fits perfectly into the picture frame!

Thanks, MotionIsPantomine! I love the colors and the collage/decoupage technique!

look what I got today!!

a box full of goodies from Tristitia!!

First, here are some notecards I believe she made (the cello wrapper that said they were plain white, so I sleuthed that she collaged them for me!)  The egg one reminds of some of my favorite seasonal chocolates Cadbury MiniEggs!  Also pictured is a precious little wooden box, with a shadowbox lid, inside of which is an egg!


Clearer photo of box, though photographing glass is NOT my forte.


Okay, next are a pair of decoupaged votive holders, (she was worried because I am sensitive to scents, but I can just put some beeswax candles in there!).  There is a woolly bird stuffie with buttons!! And a clay (sculpy/fimo) brooch.  The brooch has some really nice embossed patterns, but I can't manage a decent photo of, as it's miserably wet and grey out today.


Next she's made me a fantastic felt magazine holder.  I'm not sure how my husband will feel about this one as it will encourage me to keep MORE magazines, but maybe he'll just be happy they aren't strewn all over our home?


NEXT we have two mixed media illustrations.  The colours suit our kitchen perfectly!  I really like these, and I'm sure my mother-in-law will drool when she sees these Sunday!


Last photo!!  Here are some purchased goodies, an unfinished wood bird I can hang a photo in (but I am totally inspired to put a fabric swatch in there instead, like the paisley in the little egg shadow-box), a painted wood and wire ornaments (hurrah, it's almost tree dressing time!) and a thrifted ceramic toucan.


This was my first swap, and I'd say I really made out well with this stash!!
Tristitia thank you so much!!

I'm loving all that stuff, but the magazine holder is awesome, the votives are adorable and the mixed media is so elegant!

The designs on the side of the box are painted on; here's some closeup views of them.

And here's a close up view of the lid
