Great story! Thanks for sharing your struggle and your determination to make things work out. Your seahorse is fantastic, and I know it must have been hard for you to send that off.

BTW, we would never kick someone out of Craftster for a "miss", but this definitely turned out to be a big hit! Cheesy

You are so brave to post your anxieties and "failures"...but, you also posted how you overcame with support and encouragement from your hubby, and sheer creativity and determination in the Craftster spirit!  YAY!

No one would have been wiser if you had just posted your creation...but to share the process  makes your project even more enjoyable...I am sure I was not the only one shaking my head up and down in empathy...we have all been there!

LOVE IT!

I'm sorry you had to go through so much anxiety, but the result is amazing! Great job on fixing your color problem. Don't you just love it when the end result turns out so much better than you thought it would.

I love your persistence and ability to overcome obstacles with creative spunk! And you've got an awesome piece of art to show for it.
Kudos to you and to your hubby for being so supportive and fast thinking!

That is so cute.  I love the little baby seahorse.  It is nice to see others have issues and how they turn an "oh @$^%#$" into a wonderful creation.

Your Seahorse is beautiful Shocked  I'm glad how you stuck with it & that your hubby help you that's very cool!  I thought it was Teesha Moore patches sewed together but this is better. You've started a whole new trend now, how cool is that!!   Love all the detail on it too! Fabulous design!!!  I might have to try this!! This Rocks!!!

Oh my gosh!  This is a featured project!  Wow.  What a hoot.  Thank you all.  I'm smiling so much my face hurts.  I hope you all too can make a wrapped seahorse/mermaid/whatever and add all the glittery elements you have laying around.
