 Grin  Thanks guys - you make me blush!  The kite was the first thing I've ever done like that, and it was very fun to do.  Thank goodness I have a color copier at work!  The kite theme in general was fun to work with. 

I had some fun origami paper from lining the inside of a cigar purse (see the Goddess swap gallery...) and thought it would make cool kites.  So I cut out the paper and glued a split ring and wire on the backs (in cross bars for support), then polyurethaned them so they'd be stiff and hold up somewhat.

No it's not, it's Morrison...

But really, like yours isn't, Mel!  In fact, it's a family trait, so perhaps it's our *last* name...

I got another fabulous angel package from Grasshopper's mom this weekend!  It is so gorgeous!  Now that I have packages from both angels, I'll take pictures, but in the mean time I have to say what I got (though I know it won't do it justice!)

Grasshopper's mom sent a wonderful little stained glass elephant (which, besides loving the elephant itself, I work at the Museum of Glass, so a particularly good tie!) and an incredible constructed book all about Babar.  Man is it cool.  I am in such awe of this talent! 

I was truly blessed by both of my swap angels!  Thank you so much!

I went home this weekend so I finally got my package from Kendaljay...it was sooo great!  She sent a painted maroon box that ties shut with silk flowers attached to the top (I'm using it to hold my *illegal* candle stash and the fortunes I save from fortune cookies :-P), a bookmark decorated with flower/butterfly stickers and awesome irridescent butterflies hanging from it, and the cutest little heart and key keychain (already on my keys).  My book was The Secret Garden, by the way Wink  Thanks so much kendaljay!  I will be taking pics of all my angel packages when grasshopper's arrives...thank you!!!

Yay!!!  All my swap angel packages have arrived and they are all WONDERFUL!  I shall have to "pay it forward" someday...thank you all! (p.s. I'm posting them all here so it will be a tad pic heavy...sorry).  I just got grasshopper's package today...so much fun!  She sent a ton of fun, colorful "gardeny" things (pencils, scented eraser, "J" sticky notes, little notebooks, animal bookmarks), an adorable little fimo box with a flower design, and a beautiful green gardeny necklace/earring set!  I just can't thank all of you enough for all your gifts and generosity!!!

Here is everything...


A closeup of the decoupaged switch plate and flower pincushion sewwabisabi sent (the other plate is already in action)


The box, bookmark, and keychain kendaljay sent me


And the awesome necklace and earrings grasshopper sent!


It is all so wonderful, thank you all sooo much!

Julie, thanks for posting pics of your loot!  It looks like you made out like a bandit!  I'm glad you were so pleased with everything.  That necklace and earrings are really lovely.  Great job, Grasshopper!   Wink

Is this the pincushion with the instructions in Japanese? I want to make it, but I am a bit intimidated. Yours looks great (along with everything else that you made)!

Yes, Sharla it is!   Smiley

I too was a little intimidated with it, but I really liked making it.  It was a fun and fairly easy project to make.  I would make more of these for sure.  Give it a try!  If you need any help figuring it out, just PM me.   Wink

xoxo
