That fabric is so, so cute! I have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot of pinup girls. Wink

I will have to see if I have any photos of the coasters close up, I took them with my roommate's phone, I still can't find the cord to my actual camera *ggggrrrrr damn pixies*  I'm not sure if they are still on her phone, but if they are, I'll edit this and get them up so you can see them!
I'm totally glad you like you purse, there were a few times with it when I was swearing in my made up language, LOL!  There's no real name for them that I'm aware of, just 'purse frames'.  And as for the fabric, I got it from reprodepot.com.

So, I got mine today as well, and I totally needed it, rough day with my kids.  So, on to my photos!!

First off, here is the photo of everything together.  I'm totally stoaked, it made my day!

Next, we've got the individual shots, first of a fridge magnet and clothing for it!

Next is a book of paperdolls, totally awesome by the way

Third is a wallet made with the cutest fabric, totally what I've been wanting!

And finally, a completely adorable pearl choker that I'll wear when I wear my pretty vintage dresses!

Edit: I found two closeup photos of the coasters, here they are!  I made them with poured resin by the way, poured in plastic containers, much like rubbermaid containers, only cheaper so I don't feel guilty "ruining" them with resin. Cheesy

We did our exchange today and I am so excited.  I know that I mentioned Elvis in my questionnaire but I also know that I did not say that I love Elvis so much that I named my dog after him!

I received a painted portrait of Elvis in the Army  

and a wonderful ring that I wore all evening

It was a bit difficult to photograph so I don't this this pic does it justice.... it is wonderful!

She also made me a CD of period and rockabilly music that I have thoroughly enjoyed!  Definitely high ratings on my iPod!

Thank you so much helenheels!!!!!!
