That shrine is AWESOME! Whats it made of? The dd/mm/yy thing never would have occured to me! I love the little purse so much!

Yeah, I forgot about the date thing!  Tongue

The shrine is made of foam core, wrapped in rice paper. I have a great book on making shrines that was the inspiration for the shrine part. The skellys are made of sculpy clay.

The little purse had a rhinestone Cosmo on one side. Did the pieces fall off in the mail, phizzy?

Phizzychick- That mirror is beautiful!

Your shrine is really well built. I thought that looked like sculpey. Wanna come over and play?

I'd love to! So far all I've done is little bitty food and plants (for my girls), skeletons, and very rudimentary cane. I could use a master like yourself to show me the ropes!  Smiley

Poo, I'm a crappy photographer. Nope the cosmo didn't fall off, it's just on the opposite side!! Roll Eyes I'm definately going to use the purse for going for drinks with the girls! It reminds me of a cupcake with the frosting on top and the closure for a cherry!

The shrine is beautifully made, it already has pride of place in my little skele corner! Phizzybloke will love it, he rarely gets involved in my swaps so he'll think it's cool he gets to appear in one! Plus he looks very dapper in his top hat! He might be a little embarassed that that's all he's wearing Wink

Lookie at skele corner:


It was funny collecting all the bits for the prom pincushion, perfect for when you get the urge to craft between dances! Wink

Oh, good. I'm glad it made it there ok. Those little bitty rhinestones don't have a lot of surface area for the glue, and I was afraid it had arrived in a gross state of disrepair!  Cheesy

I have a feeling I'm about to start a HUGE brawl and get kicked out of the prom...   Grin

okay, so you know how I'm always whining and begging for craft stuff that catches my eye?  ("YES!" the entire Craftster community yells.  Writer78 looks somewhat annoyed but continues.)  well, last week I saw the mini taco that new crafting celeb teapotdnky made as a joke in the huge "Invite your partner" discussion thread.  I immediately announced that I would be glad to own it for the rest of my life, if anyone felt inclined to send it to me.  (okay, okay, I'll change my screenname to "Greedy78.")  I even added it to my wists.

So I get this awesome PM from teapot asking for my address.  I shiver in delight, thinking I'll have a little taco just for fun, wondering what I'll do with it.  I leave for a few days on a trip, and when I return, the mail is waiting for me.  And there, in a little box, is...



...TEX MEX JEWELRY!!!   Grin  Grin  Grin

yes, she took the beloved taco of my heart and added two matching plates of burritos (with refried beans and all!) and made me a necklace!





And that's not all... SALSA AND GUACAMOLE EARRINGS!



I'm absolutely in shock.  This is one of the most creative, unique jewelry sets I've ever seen, and this gal just up and gave them to me.  I don't know what to say other than millions of THANK YOUs to teapot!

Action shot:



And the moral of our story?  Whining and begging pay off.   Wink

Seriously, I'm totally amazed.  My entire week is now made.

So, is this going to start a brawl for my date-stealing and blatant hogging of tacos??   Tongue

Oh, gosh, those are way too cute! The little salsa and guac are just perfection in their tiny bowls!

Now everyone's going to start whining for little crafted fimo goods from you, teapot!

Wow!  Such great packages!

I received today, too from Stifflersmom!  She is the best date, ever!
I wanted one of her awesome purses and she sent:



She also made me the sock monkey I've been wanting!  Meet Lola:

She came complete with a cosmo to drink and the cutest crochet undies - a bra and a thong!  I tried to take a pic of her mooning you but it just looked wrong!
She also sent a great Ipod cover that I forgot to photograph because it is on the ipod and in my car!

 I love it all!
Thanks so much Jen!!!!  I love it. Yours should be there in 2-3 days.
