I recieved my fabulous package from LouraPalmr!!!  Check out the awesomeness that is now mine...I squealed when I opened the package...

First up, she sent 2 ornaments for the smalls...here they are hanging on my china cabinet thing:




They are really beautiful and glittery in person!

And the big item, an art doll!  She looks to me like a woodland fairy queen who is getting ready for winter:

She is sitting on a chair/throne, with "snow covered branches" (with HUGE glitter!) in back, and there is a beautifully decorated surrounding for her too...here's some more pictures:





These photos don't do her justice, it is sooooo cool looking in person!  LouraPalmr, if you've got some good photos, post away!  I absolutely LOVE every part of this package!!!  Thank you SOOOOOOOOO much!!!

That doll is incredible, and I love the color scheme for those ornaments.  I love the scarf on the doll, and her branches, they sort of look like wings from this shot.  Her hair color and her face is beautiful. 
Awesome. Smiley

thanks so much for all the compliments, it is the first doll i have ever made and thought it would be a good challenge for myself. i used a "push mold" for all the faces since i am so not a scupltor, but the rest of the stuff i made with the exception of the glittery branches, they are fron Joann. Oh a the glitter goes SO much better over paint like on the wings, it makes it not so WOO WOO glittery. superhooker i have some more pics i will load them next time i'm at my own house (i'm babysitting my nephew tonight) but i have some good hair shots and outfit shots.

She is sooo perfect in person!!! I am absolutely CRAZY for her little felt shoes!!!All the pics I took of them turned out really fuzzy.  The whole surround is really wonderfully done, too...the chair and all the decor around it looks really awesome.

Sorry, I just can't say enough how perfect the package was...all my exact favorite colors and I love the woodsy-ness of the whole thing!
