I recieved my most wonderful mobile from A_Patchwork_Orange it is just fantastic. I'm going to get my pictures downloaded to cd hopefully I'll be able to post by this evening! I can even begin to describe the creativity of this mobile, these objects I use everyday and sit around my studio and I never thought about arranging them this way. Wish me luck in getting some photos!
here they are, I wanted to show my mobile in its new home and then upclose so you can see the great little fabric squares and the top of it.


Thank you thank you thank you, can't say enough I absolutely adore the mobile you made me!

oh, I am so happy that you like it!  And, I am also very pleased that it made it to you intact!  When I was making it, I didn't think about having to SHIP it....Packing it was more of a challenge than making it was!

I know what you mean, when I made mine I wasn't thinking shipping either of course when I went to put it in the box and mail it hit me. I'm hoping mine will make it soon and in one peice also.
By the way, I don't just like it, I LOVE it!

Sorry I've been really flaky about posting pictures of the mobile that jamesdean sent me.  The top part of the mobile broke a little bit in the mail and I still haven't managed to fix it but you can't see the damage too much in the pictures anyway.


Here are some pictures of it hanging in my garden.

Also I was supposed to post pictures of the one I sent A_Patchwork_Orange because she been super busy and wasn't going to get a chance to reassemble it and take pictures for a while.  If I get a chance I'll post some pictures I took before I sent it off later today.

I think it is self hardening clay, but correct me if I'm wrong jamesdean.

Here are the pictures of the mobile I sent A_patchwork_orange.

It is a moblie of a flock of flamingos made out of watercolor paper.  She said she liked birds and pink so I figured flamingos would be perfect.

Here is a close up of one of the flamingos.

I hope they are happy in their new home.

The flamingos ARE cute!   Grin 

I have FINALLY had the time to put my lovely mobile together, and for right now, it is hanging in my family room - that is where I was when i assembled it.  I believe it will eventually migrate into my sewing room, since that is where I spend most of my time.

Thank you giantsquid for posting the pictures!  I guess the flamingos are a bit camera shy at my house, because I could not, for the life of me, get a decent shot!  They keep flying about, and the pictures are all blurry!  Tongue (okay, the truth is, I can't take a decent picture of a still life...but at least the moving mobile makes for a much better excuse, don't you think?)

sorry it took so long to reply just returned from a long needed vacation, it is a clay, earthen ware you have to fire in a kiln. But I didn't use the usual glaze I watercolored it and then mod podged to seal. glad giant squid still liked it even broken, so very sorry about that!

Aww... thanks!!

I forgot to tell ya - I didn't tie anything from the top to hang it, really.  When I took photos, I wedged it between a "Y" in a branch of a tree.  Nails like you did, work perfect, too!

It's got so much stuff on it. Cheesy  My favorite part is the bell, which I found nearly 10 years ago at a house that had been condemned (snuck in...shh), lots of beads that I've collected over time from necklaces at yard sales, Goodwill, etc., some mother of pearl pieces, coins, austrian crystals, teeny tiny bells and just random STUFF!

Luv ya!

Yesss!  It sounds very... well... chimey. Cheesy

I have it hanging on a branch outside my art/craft room/studio/whatever and I get to hear it all the time.

I'm quite convinced that the squirrels do hate it, though.  I have it on the same branch as their feeder and they "set it off" on the way to get food in the morning. Cheesy

I have received from my second Angel, inle_rah last night as I was putting on green face makeup for the trick-or-treaters.  I love, love, LOVE my mobile! 

Here is a crappy photo:

Believe me, it looks much better IRL.  It is sparkly and all the runes are in raised silver.  Those little brass bells make a perfect, light tinkling sound and the stars spin when it hangs free of the wall.  I love it, it is wonderful.  Thank you inle_rah for coming through for me.  This mobile will get center stage hanging position in my workshop/office.  You are a wonderful crafter and Angel!

I had a hard time taking a picture of it, as well.  This was the best one I got:
