Awe... yay!!  I am so glad you're happy!  You were so fun to craft for... your interests and colors are much of my own. Smiley

I'm happy the elephant piece has found a lovely new home - he was great to make!  I love melting beads, after all. Grin

I can't believe you found the fortune already, you curious lady!!  Who would have thought to look in that little pocket so soon? Cheesy

I'm not much of a seamstress (I'm just learning), so the bag and wallet were quite a new experience for me, but definitely good times.  I'm glad I went against my better judgement and tried to make them anyway 'cause I had a good time doing so...hehe.

I have some photos, too!  Let me fetch 'em! Smiley

Great stuff, sweets!  I love the evolution of the bead melting to mimic stained glass.

This gallery never ends!

Here are some more pictures and some links to some inspiration where inspiration is due! Smiley


I read she liked b&w photography and nature, so I tried to combine those for her. Smiley
Here they are unframed.  I didn't alter the colors; I only removed color.

Links to the images 'cause they're bigger than 500-wide.

Inspired by real stained glass: http://chantalstainedglass.50megs.com/2babyelephant1.html
Before I drilled him (or her?) for ribbon hanger.
Some of the shades are flat and some have sparkle or shimmer (I love spppparrrkles!). Grin


110% inspired by these: http://www.brooklynbags.com/catalog/ella.html

 

Thanks for being such a sweetie, charliebrown and for hanging in there with me while my life went topsy turvy for a while. Smiley *hug*

Thanks for posting the pictures Sweets, my picture of your photos didn't do them justice and I didn't realize I hung the dandelion photo sideways. LOL. I will fix it.

I can't believe you found the fortune already, you curious lady!!  Who would have thought to look in that little pocket so soon? Cheesy

There was so much in the box, I didn't want to miss anything!

I'm such a photo dork. Cheesy  I take a few hundred photos a week and half of them are just goofy stuff around the house... small thrills keep me happy! Smiley

Hehehe... I liked that you saw something different in the dandelion photo, actually!  I pulled Justin over and made him look at how you hung it, too! Cheesy  Just because I took the photo horizontally doesn't mean you have to hang him that way at all! Smiley

PS - the bird is upside-down.  Kidding... Cheesy

Wow, sweets, the melted bead elephant is amazing!  I love how you started something funky and cool and turned it into--um, funky, cool, and precise and classy and not what I ever expected it ever to look like.  Major kudos to you!
