I received my swap package from dragonflyducky today and I was truly spoiled!!  Here is "the sum of my parts"

Totally wicked-her painted wings move, theres a shrinky anatomical heart inside the ribs too.

She sent a wonderful, very moving note with an explanation of her work-most of it having to do with how a person feels when going through a major health trauma (I had a stem cell transplant for leukemia almost 4 years ago) "the wings are there for what must have been a metamorphosis for you..a prayer box for your wishes" (I have to admit there were a few tears when I read it Cheesy)
and thats not all....

another nifty little x-ray pin and a skully keychain!!

thank you so very much Kerstin for such a personal, fantastical swap package, I totally adore it!!!

Wow--those pins from dragonflyducky are wild and it sounds like her note was very special, too. What a great pairing of partners! What are the wings made of and how did you put the rib cage together? I am in awe.

Thanks! Cheesy
The rib cage is just wire....kind of a big spiral, with smaller loops at top and bottom, and dented in  the front.  I wired glass beads along the front.  The wings are painted feathers on top of black polymer clay, with clear resin on top.
(otherwise known as.....evidence of too many trips to Michaels combined with mad-scientist tendencies)

I'm just WAITING to see everyone's pins-
I hope some more get delivered tomorrow!

I received both of my pins today!
From Nutella:

It's made of cotton fabric and beads...She said her inspiration was coral, and a coral-like beaded necklace I liked.
She sent some pretty stamped cards too  (you can sort of see them behind the pin) Cheesy


From Nightlight:

A decoupaged robot! The background is painted wood.

Thanks so much to you both! It was great that together you covered my sci-fi-robot-geeky side AND my nature-loving side  Grin

Thank you so much goatgoddess and jazzybelle! Your  pins have safely made it to NJ! These are the best I could do, picture wise...

jazzybelle says summer images of citrus fruit and beach umbrellas were her inspiration for this orange knit pin with beads and it also reminds me of a sand dollar:


goatgoddess crafted these two-part pin out of rubber stamps and inks on clay. it's a swimming koi fish with some kind of message!! goatgoddess--what does that character translate to?


Thank you so much both of you for these presents!! What really nice crafting to receive! Cheesy Cheesy
