Ooh, I love the fairy doll!  And those coasters DO rock!  Really, everything is great.  I just can't comment on every single thing.  You all know how that goes.  Smiley

Ooow I cannot tell how much I NEED that faerie! I love her eyes! Are they buttons?
And I love her hair and the leaves in it and her cute dressy and her well her everything.
And I need her!

And the felted beads... well not to be rude. Cause I do love them... but...... well... you know.....

somehow they remind me of pellet


* runs off to escape from mad craftsters *

<turns around and expounds in her defence> which off cause is very treeish and not a bad thing </expound>


They are much prettier in real life, I swear.
The first felted beads I made of a pretty chocolate brown wool... but I had to change my plan. If you've ever kept rabbits you will know what those looked like.

Yes, the eyes are buttons. First I sewed on a circle of brown felt larger than the button then stitched the buttons on top.

I received an amazing package from efirechild today!  Hold on to your treetops-- here is all the beauty.

First, please pardon the poor picture quality. My digital camera is the pits. 

Everything came wrapped and cushioned in fabrics. How did she know I needed fabric, especially stripes, right now?


I asked for wall art for my bedroom, and here it is! Photographs of tree and leafy goodness, all taken by efirechild:


Closeup of my favorite tree photo:


I already have frames for all of them.

And here's a beautiful pendant necklace. This action shot doesn't do it justice. It's a malachite and turquoise stone, with pinecone sections added underneath:
 

It is totally unique and will look great with my favorite tops!

I told her I loved maple trees and pine trees and pinecones. She made this adorable maple leaf stuffie (vinyl, no less!) and a pinceone flower:


The flower will have a home on a flowerpot wrap I'm making for the arbicola in my living room. Oh, and the maple leaf stuffie will go on the living room wall.

A cool pouch made from a magazine cover.  I've never seen anything like this:

Aren't the colors beautiful? Here it is open:

And it's even quilted.  It also has decorative stitching around the edges.  Here's a photo where I tried to show the stitching:


Now, I teared up when I found this! A swap journal, made especially for me:

She dyed the fabric for the cover and then drew the amazing tree image and title.  Isn't she talented!
Inside of swap journal:

The left pages have spaces for the swap name, partner's name, swap size, large, medium, and small, brainstorming, items sent, and items received.  The right pages have space for photographs.

Here's a shot of the endpapers, which I loooove:

Tie-dyed goodness!



Oh, you thought that was all?  HA!  Here's the masterpiece. It seems efirechild has a degree in costume design, and I -- yes I -- am the beneficiary of her skills and creativity! Here you go:

And here's a closeup, or at least an attempt at a closeup:


No way do the photos do justice to this mask! My camera doesn't pick up the colors or detail, so efirechild, if you have better pics, please post them.

It's obvious I have been SPOILED for my very first swap!  Thank you, efirechild, for all the wonders you sent. I am smiling at everything, and it's all smiling back.

Thanks! 

I build molds out of plasicina on styrofoam wig forms and cover them in plaster wrap.  Everything else is just glued on.  You just have to think of it as a flower arrangement for your head. 

This is the mold I used....



Here are the requested pics...







Zcrafter, you were a totally awsome partner and deserved the spoilage!!!

Jenicat this has been an amazing swap.  Everyone has had such great packagaes.
