I love those espresso stencils! How you you use them?
after topping your drink with whipped cream, hold the stencil over your cup and sprinkle with espresso, chocolate, or nutmeg powder.

Here are the pictures of the great earings that ViolinRomance sent me.  She made the beads and I love them.  I wore the ones with the mugs yesterday and I really enjoyed them and think they look great.  I love the mug beads and the coffee bean mugs so much. 



Thank you Brianna

I'm glad you liked them! Sorry I forgot them first time around- I was a little worried about the mugs turining out- first time a millefoire (right term?), but they worked ok.. Thanks for taking pics- yours are much better than mine!

I'm still waiting for my partner to send. She also hasn't had a chance to post pics of what I sent, and I forgot to take them. So, I figured I'd at least list what I sent her...

I made her a set of the criss-cross coasters. I also made a tea box (full of tea) out of matching fabric. I made a set of note cards using paper that I tea dyed. My favorite part was a set of clear glass tea cups that I etched with the symbols for "Harmony" and "Serenity" on one side, and the matching words on the other.

I also came across this neat Green Tea book with all kinds of neat recipes and stuff in it (I got one for myself, too). I also threw in a tea ball and a tea bag squeezer along with some loose teas.

I had a lot of fun making stuff for this swap. I started making stuff as soon as we were assigned partners, and then got backlogged with other things. And then I missed the post office on the day of the mailing deadline. Cry But at least everything arrived safely and she said that she loved it all  Cheesy

Good idea craftADDchick - my partner my partner seems verrry busy (I think with school) so here is a list of what I sent (I only have two pictures)


I used glass paint to decorate a large teacup and saucer set. I tried and tried and tried to take a picture that actually looks like it in real life, but because of the clear glass and paint... nothing looks like the real deal. I painted it blue, then purple, and highlighted in silver.


Satin-ribbon covered tea tin, filled to the brim with tea.

Also, I re-painted a tiny porcelain tea set, in the same blue/purple theme (for dollies) and made a pretty stationary set, to "have a cup of tea and write a letter."
I made a pretty tea-themed paper collage, but had to (gasp) fold it to mail it to her, I am pretty strapped for cash and couldn't afford the mail-tube-thing. I hope she liked it anyway. I also sent some lovely loose teas, a caramel black tea, and  some kind of chai.

Oh man... Fluxity, I love absolutely everything.  These past few weeks have been soooo crazy...  My b21st birthday just passed and now I'm trying to organize myself better to get things in gear and post pictures of all of the wonderful things you made for me.

Thanks for the compliments on the crochet cup!!

I'll be back so with pictures!!  =D
