Well, I'd like to tell you guys what I made, to share it a little. You'll have to use your imaginations! Grin
A record album cover tote bag-not perfect, but fun. I found a thrift store album called "Giant of Hawaii" from the honolulu record club. A really big guy in a white jumpsuit, with a couple of girls looking at him adoringly.
For smalls-silly earrings made with rubber fish, and a couple of small pirates. I painted a couple of small wooden boxes, glued a metal fish onto one.
A necklace I was very proud of. The centerpiece was a beautiful shell pendant, necklace made from blue and green blend cotton yarn, braided, with nice beads worked in. And I hung 6 silver sea charms on it.
I bought a fancy silver painted wood frame, about 4 x 6, and did a mermaid scene collage that turned out very well.
And some little stuff I've forgotten at the moment.
Thanks.

I just heard from my partner-looks like I don't need an angel after all!  Cheesy

Finally, finally, here are my pics from the talented Linda. She sent me an awesome package. Warning: lots of pics ahead!

All the swappy goodness in one pic.

An album cover purse...hehehe "Giant of Hawaii".  Grin

Two cute little boxes, and a rice pillow (you can put it in the microwave and make it all cozy!). Ask Linda what the cover is made from. It makes me giggle every time I think about it.

I love this one so much. A paper picture of a mermaid watching a whale. It's hanging out in my bedroom.

A painted silk scarf. This one is actually hanging up in my bathroom. Hard to see the details but it's so lovely!

Here are the goodies that were in those cute boxes! OMG, I'm so spoiled.

Forgive the crappy pic, my camera hates closeups. I love these earrings! They have little bitty pirate figures on them. Arrrrrrr.   Cool

This necklace has so many sweet little details! I've gotten so many compliments on it. I love it!

Here are more earrings. I can't tell you how awesome these are. TWO pairs of fish earrings! The bottlecap is a magnet (the blurry red thing is a lobster) and it has a twin which fell behind the couch when I went to take the picture. Don't worry, I made my son crawl back there and retrieve it.

And here's my son holding all the extras that Linda added! (Did I mention this was a HUGE box and I'm really spoiled?) Yeah, that's a seashell bra and flower lei. I know, I'll be paying for therapy in a few years. There was also a little bag of chocolate coins in there but they mysteriously disappeared... Roll Eyes
Thanks so much, Linda. You are awesome.  Kiss

You're welcome! The rice pack-hee-I was waiting in line at dollar tree and saw a rack of swim trunks-and my mind went *ding!*
So yes, that's where the fabric came from. The surfer purse was a thrift store find. And the record album purse is a little rough, but when I found that album,I had to do something with it.
I'm glad you liked your stuff!
And that pic of your son is precious. It'll be good to drag out when he's a teen. Grin

Yeah, he thinks it's funny now, but when he's eighteen, it's going to be blackmail material.
Thanks again, Linda!!
