Ohhhh ma lord. This gallery is so incredible, especially considering we had to use things already in our possession. You are some clever little ladies. Now I'm second guessing myself... this is the first time I've actually run out of time for a swap!  Embarrassed But the GOOD NEWS, I received from Shelina today and its all kinds of awesome. Her crochet goodies especially make me want to try learning again. I sense a sort of cupcakes and owl theme here, and I love it!
The cupcake goods: adorable needle book and pin cushion (its even weighted!). Look at those sweet little sprinkles. Those sugary, yummy sprinkles....**slobber** (sorry I'm dieting)

Moving on... We have an adorable owl stuffie. I love his little wings! Its like he's doing the Charleston or something, CUTE.

And finally we have two hand painted wrist cuffs! I cannot believe how cute the shark eating the sandwich is. Hahhhh haha. They are hillariously cute. Beside them is a dragonfly charm that is already getting incorporated into a bag for my mom's birthday (she is a dragonfly NUT).

Hey decaf was the cupcake cards handmade? What about the little dog card? Did you paint that? I love the mushroom pin holder! I think I am going to put it on my top 12 things made by other people. Maybe I can get someone to make me one  Grin

Aww thanks, I'm glad you like them!  Yes, I made the cupcake cards (they are a linocut print).  The dog card is a painting by my mom, she does watercolor Smiley

Haha, no, she doesn't get online much.  I keep telling her she should start an etsy store, but she seems to think it would be way too complicated etc.  She does do local art fairs and such, and even had a painting accepted by the national watercolor society (or something like that  Cheesy)

Here's a link to some of her other work http://www.mnartists.org/artistHome.do?rid=5603  (hope that doesn't break any rules!)

Okay, I put the list of sent/received/etc up in the first post. Please confirm that the information I have you listed as is correct. If it's not, PM me and I"ll fix it. I got a flurry of PM"s yesterday so it's possible I missed something!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
