Yay! I received my package today! I have to tell you that my partner crazyalien8 is an awesome polymer clay artist. My photography is awful as my camera was feeling sick today. The closer I got to the mushroomy goodness, the sicker my camera became.
So please remember, these pictures do not do crazyalien8's art any favor.
FYI~crazyalien8, I just want to say, I will happily be your partner any time you want!
First off~ My packages in all their wrapped glory. They arrived in style, with artwork decorating the shipping box.
My first package. I was so excited. This WHOLE journal was handmade. I did not count the pages but there must be at least 100. Hand binding,covered in brown corduroy with mushroom applique.
My second package. A beautiful hobo bag/purse taken right off my wist. Of course she made it in my favorite color. She claimed not be a sewer. ( I think she lied
My third package. This awesome scarf. I think this is a 'bleach drawing' of a mushroom. Tie-dye in a different way.
I don't know what you call it, but I
screamed, put it around my neck and wore it all day. Summer-be-damned! I am girl wearing her new scarf!
My fourth package. This has to be some tedious work. It is perfectly illustrated under the cap. The color is an earthy/woodsy running through the forest at twilight color.
My fifth package. I call these "Three Little Maids From School"
They have spots. They have color. They have little hooky things to hang from my charm bracelet. I will be rocking the little maids this week at class.
My sixth package. Here is a macrame necklace with a silver/sand stones. It is awesome in it's hippie-mushroomie-ness. I had one similar to this is the 70's. My daughter was seen sporting it downtown on the plaza. The word on the street was all the local hippie's thought it was an antique! Great job!
My seventh package. A freshly picked by the woodland fairies mushroom to hang from my rear view mirror. This is so beautiful I can't even put it into words. The detail is phenomenal. This piece was passed among those lucky enough to be here while the packages were opened. I had to pass out drool bibs and frisk everyone as they left.
I love everything I received. Crazyalien8 is a perfect swapper partner ! Thank you!
