snazzlecraft, that's very clever!  i bought some of those dollar tree frame stickers, i think... now what did i do with them?!
(yours look better; hmmm, it must be because of adding the pictures... i mean, a frame kind of needs a picture!)

sorry for mistaking the doll, but anyway she's great.

PS: Aeon and the USPS said that my package is on its way... i am excited to receive!!

I received an amazing package today from Anya Kase! Be prepared for lots of pics and to Wist like crazy!

First, when I open the box I saw tons of very pretty and colorful crepe paper flowers.



The first thing I opened was this sweet little matchbox with two worry dolls tucked inside.

Next was this beautiful necklace.



Action shot, keep in mind I am in my PJs so hair is not done and no make-up. Plus it is very hard to take pics of yourself.  Cheesy



Then there is the coolest towel ever! I love embroidery and hope to learn soon. When my boyfriend and I get a place I want to try to talk him into a kitschy kitchen.



This skull is so cool and sparkly, as soon as I'm done posting I'm hanging him in my room.



The last item is definitely my favorite, I had one of Anya Kase's dolls on my Wist and so she made one for me!! She is the sweetest thing ever!



Close up of her face. I want to call her Shelly for some reason, prolly too much SpongeBob lately!  Cheesy


Sorry the pic quality is not great, the lighting in my room is bad and my camera is worse.

Thank you so much for everything, I absolutely love it all!!!!!  ( Though now anxiety is setting in about the package I sent)

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

Really fantastic stuff! I of course am delighted by the doll and mini shrine, although I think my fave is the mustache on the sugar skull!

wow that little happy muerta girl doll reminds me of la chilindrina!  and the fabric used for her dress is so fun!!

i also like the mustaches on the sugar skull.  it gives it something extra.

that necklace is a great idea for a way to use some old jewellery findings i have turned up while cleaning.
