as i said in a PM earlier, OMGosh i have been Completely Friggin' Spoiled.
on the other hand, this is encouraging me along a bit, as i work on my package for her!
also craftylittlemonkey has kindly said i could use her photos but we are not supposed to insert other people's photos, so i am linking to them as needed.
"art" things (as if it weren't ALL art?!):
closeup of the shadowbox:
better pic from craftylittlemonkey's stream HERE
inside the heart box (SO amazing!):
i had seen her dotees on her flickr and suggested we exchange art dolls. i would say i'd never seen anything like this doll before,
but ... actually it reminds me a bit of something i recently saw mentioned in a magazine
, that i found fascinating! which is even better. i love random connections.
i missed getting a pic of the rattle things inside her dress bottle
. they are all alice related! clock, key, mushroom, sort of things!
tiny things: cross-stitch pictures! these will look great in my doll display, whenever i get it properly set up.
tiny things: magnets and a white rabbit - SO cute!
some of the sewed things:
the tissue thing is great cos i am always getting allergies at school and not wanting to seem uncivilized before my students
more sewed things, for
i neglected to get a photo of the tiny heart embroidered inside one of the needle pages
! so detallista
actually i have put all these inside the yellow case to have it for a sewing kit!
MORE sewed things!
that are actually:
a cup of tea and a cookie!
i think they would double as pincushions if needed. though i would hate to stick them. i wonder how you got the cup so sturdy. is it plastic or cardboard circles?
an absolutely huge supply of notecards with different styles of alice and other characters
(i've put some of my most
favorites in front)
the obligatory craftster "helper"-pet and accidental body part shot:
and finally some fun extras!
(actually the box is decorated, too. it didn't come with the neat Art-Nouveau queen on it!)
wow i got exhausted just describing
all that. i can't imagine how much work went into MAKING it all! i'm amazed and i would hug you if you weren't in, like, Canada or something.
