So glad you liked rantyhippie!  Those tiny wooden pegs are for the picture frames to make them stand up on a table.  I took some close-ups of the bracelet:



Made from milagros.  You can look up the meanings, each one is different.  Also the picture frames:



which I am so happy made it safely!  Doesn't look like the flowers got smashed.   Cheesy  The flowers are recycled from the centerpieces I made for my sister's Mexican-Themed bridal shower this past summer.  I made the porcelain tiles and glazed them with my favorite dark plum glaze.

Can't wait to see more goodness!

Sent mine to mrsjimenez678 today as well. 

Dear UPS,
Please be careful with the package or I will have to silly string your store on Coors Blvd and Ladera Ave.  Just saying.
Love
