I love the stamp set, and the dream catcher is beautiful. It's my turn to be the spoiled child and say "I WANT that journal!" HEHEH Smiley

Thanks all, for the nice compliments!
Battenberg I'm glad you like it!
Here are some pics I took before sending.

I totally love the stamp set myself. Couldn't stop stamping.
The two without wood are reversible so you have more tree variation and it won't get so repeating.




a testtree! And that's why the stamps are blue  Roll Eyes couldn't get the dmn ink off.


It's a dream tree. You hang your dreams in the tree and your dreams will blossom.
Well, that's the idea anyway.

I received an awedome parcel from Echo_brook during the week Tongue

Firstly the group shot - an Owlasaur - not sure it's histrorically acurate - but this is what emerged!


After wranggling with the Owlasaur for a short while I was able to break off some of the more threatening parts
teeth, spikes, eyes and ears!

I found the teeth and toe talons were actually nice earrings, and the tail spikes were clay leaves. The eyes turned out to be clay dragonflies!

Next I was albe to pull off the end of it's tail -which became a lovely necklace - (so cute and wire tree perfect!)


Next i pried off the feet and the stump of the tail:

The feet were thrift store found ceramic mugs Tongue
and the tail stump a cute tin with palm fronds.
Above is the protective wrapping the owlasaur was in-before it jumped out of teh box!

Then the head came off!!! and the gigantic wings!

Echo created a wood grain like kniited (Huh) scarf and beanie for me -which is handy as we're going into winter!
and they are each applicaed with oak leaves and acorns!

Lastly I was able to tackle the main part of the Beastie:
The Body!!!

Isn't it beautiful!!!

She hand embroidered the tree on - it has such beautiful texture adn i LOVE it!!!
Close up of the Beasties belly:


It's lilke the tree has tenticles adn little lighter purple suckers Tongue

Thankyou so much Echo I love everything. There was no need to dream up sucha  scary beastie -I love every part Tongue

ps - Was at the Folk Festival here last weekend and I spied a huge puppet that i thought i would share with you:

He was interesting to converse with -he had a really rough barky textured voice   Grin
