Don't cry! My postie bought me a big bundle of packages today, and your wonderful amazing package was one of them! Yay!! Everything is absolutely perfect, I love it all!
I will post pics next week, otherwise, feel free to post pics for me. Yay!
Phew! I'm glad it got there okay!
I sent jan_on_ice magnetic Fairytale Story. It is words on magnets and you make up your own story on your fridge. I sent a gauzy floral scarf with mermaids painted on it in glitter fabric glue and some stripey Beetlejuice-inspired arm-warmers.
I also sent her two t-shirts, a pink one with mermaid silhouettes and a white one with Jareth from Labyrinth and the words "I move the stars for no-one" which is a line from a song in the movie.
Unfortunately I don't have photos of those so you will have to wait until jan_on_ice has her camera ready and a free moment.
Okay then here are pictures of some
of the items that I sent jan_on_ice.
A Zipped pouch of Jareth from Labyrinth. Originally it was going to be a t-shirt but didn't quite turn out as I'd hoped, but he was just right for a pouch.
Here's the fun inside lining:
Here is another pouch I sent. Jan_on_ice loves mermaids (I think she might be part mermaid!)
Notice that I found a nice little fish as a zipper-pull. I know jan_on_ice loves her marine biology, as any good mermaid would. The inside is lined with blue/green satiny fabric. Also I put some glitter on the mermaid's scales. Magical things always glitter.
Next a bracelet. Sorry it's a bit blurry.
Its made of little circles of shell that were picked up on a beach luckily they already had holes in them so I didn't have to do any drilling. Alone they were boring so I threaded a transparent opalescent sequin between each one and knotted between each one. In half-light it sparkles like a wave in the moonlight.
It is threaded on light blue pearl embroidery thread.
Lastly another bracelet
It's made of beach glass; glass that has been worn smooth and frosted by the sand and waves. It was picked up on actual beach. Originally I want to drill holes in them but had no drill-bits that could handle it.
So I ended up winding it with wire and because of the odd shapes had to use a little glue to secure the wire. The beads in between are frosted glass that I had in my stash and matched the glass colours beautifully!
