(That crazy Tree of Life Pendant girl)

From phoenixfiredesigns I received this GORGEOUS hand-made Tree of Life pendant. The wires are all hand-twisted and the "leaves" are made of rose quartz gemstones.

*snip image*

Thank you both for being willing to trade and for my WONDERFUL gifts!
No, thank you for being so awesome and willing to swap in the first place! I think the Tree came out SO lovely and I'm glad you think so too. When it was done, it just reminded me of Spring and Cherry Blossoms. Please enjoy.

Now, I've been horribly remiss. I pm'd giddygirlie to let her know her wonderful package arrived last week but sadly, my posting hasn't been anywhere near as quick. whooosh! - there's the sound of the last week going by me in a blur. So forgive my terrible tardiness in posting, but here are some images of the amazing Ghosts I received from her.



I've already got them on my wall next to my computer. Forgive the poor photo, my CF light bulb may be great for energy savings but my poor camera has no idea what to do with the color. And given my poor time frame for posting anything this past week, I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to get photos. (For fear another week would go by.)

But the close-ups look a little better photography-wise...







I just adore them. And they're just so perfect. THANK YOU giddygirlie for such a wonderful, unique trade. Cheesy

I did a personal swap for one of my mini canvas works of art with audio-astrophysics. She sent me a great package in return! Everything is from my wist!

I swapped with Always inspired for this!! I really love it, and it is exactly like how I pictured it!! It's a mini canvas of Sandro Boticelli's Borth of Venus, my favorite painting! It's the close up of her face!




Thanks so much AI! I'm glad you liked what I sent!!

Oh man, her mini reproductions are AMAZING. I've seen a couple of them now and I'm in love with them all! If I ever feel that I could create something that would to them justice, I'd love to approach her for a personal swap myself - not that I feel I have the skill yet! [grin]

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

I am in a personal swap with the lovely corduroy cat this month and I received from her on Friday! Cheesy

After bouncing around a few ideas on themes, I spotted krissykat's 2-headed kitten on Cat's wist and totally fell in love with it. I've always wanted something needle felted, so she offered to make me my very own siamese kitten, only "siamese" in both senses of the word. That spun off into a sideshow/twisted carnival type theme.

Meet Ming et Ting. The name is both a play off of Chang and Eng, one of the most famous sets of siamese/conjoined twins in history, and my own Siamese cat, Ling.





I particularly like that she chose to do her with a conjoined face (a rarer congenital disorder called diprosopus) instead of two separate heads. Hehe, it just appeals to the bio nerd in me ^_^


Ming et Ting now lives in her jar, safely preserved from the ravages of time, but corduroy cat has posted pictures of her sans jar here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301825.msg3447216#msg3447216

I have to say that the reactions to kitty have been really interesting. A few people have actually been somewhat horrified by it, and a few others have been just generally uncomfortable around it, but for the most part, people LOVE it Smiley I think it's completely badass, and it looks awesome on my mantle!

Corduroy cat also sent me a who bunch of fantastic extras - bits and bobs to use in my collages and other generally awesome little bits.


Thank you, corduroy cat, for making my first overseas swap an awesome experience, and for sending such a thoughtful and amazing package! I really hope you like the package I'm sending you as much as I've enjoyed yours!!! Cheesy

That kitty is amazing!  I would never have thought to make it, but it is phenomenal!  Great job!
