Please don't feel guilty.  I had SOOOO much fun making stuff for you and looking for inspiration for things that would suit your taste and style, so it was an absolute pleasure.  I'm not normally an early bird, but wanted to get this off to you when I'd finished as I get bored easily! LOL  You had to get me while my muse was running or else who knows that other things I would've had to send you!  Glad you liked the package, and I hope you have fun wearing the bits of blingy stuff on your black wardrobe (you said you wear a lot of black, as do I and my DD, so it was fun making things that I know we would also like to wear).  I hope you're inspired to make your own rings and brooches now too.  Post pics when you make anything.  Have fun!
Don't fuss sending my goodies.  I'm not going anywhere and can enjoy the build-up in the meantime!  Cheers.

Photos!  Elowezil sent so much stuff, it was hard to photograph everything fairly (especially with my 4 year old helper).  There were so many photos, I made collages Smiley

Top L-R: Leopard headband with rose applique, large orange flower pin, funky heart brooch
Bottom L-R: Skull pin cushion, cigar box full of cool buttons/cords/button ring/etc, colourful photo frame, scooter note cards

Top L-R:  Various lengths of all kinds of ribbons and trims held together on a pin and worn as a hair clip in that photo, flower clutch
Bottom L-R: Necklace and bracelet with felt beads, tattoo inspired fabric, and temporary tattoos

Thanks again to Elowezil for her thoughtful and amazing package Smiley

Wow, that's a great collection of stuff! I love the flower pin and the photo frame, very vibrant.

I'm sure I'm just being dim, but how do you make the various photos into a collage? It would be very useful to show off lots of things like this, but whenever I look up 'photo collage' I come across something much more complicated.

Fantastic! Fab and fun package - I'm particularly liking the heart brooch and flower clutch, and I think I've got cigar box envy ... Cheesy

BP's package is wrapped and ready to go to the post office. I had it there on Friday, but it started to slow-mo burst open!  Shocked  So I've had to seal it up a bit better ...

One of the easiest ways I've found to make photo collages is to use Microsoft Publisher.  Make a blank print publication, put your photos in and resize them and arrange them how you like (don't worry about white space around the outside) then use the line tool for the dividing lines.  Save as a jpg.  Open the jpg in a basic photo editor and crop away any white bits on the outside and resize the overall size of the image.

Yep, Elowezil sure made a great package for me Smiley 
Can't wait to see what you've organized for bubblegum too - hope you've got the explosion under control!  PM me with your package details once sent
