Hey, I know how to say shoes in twelve languages! Wink

 Can I suggest that for the next swap everyone has to make everything for everyone?(oh no--amarylliseroze won't share!! hee hee)

 I am loving the variety!! The pouch is really really nice (love the serape type fabric!). Black velvet never looked so good!! I am in total awe of painters!

Excellent swap package dianejeanne!! Can you share the book title please?(please amaryllisroze?)

What am I being stingy with?  Undecided

The book is "Mexicana: Vintage Mexican Graphics" edited by Jim Heimann.
It looks like it came from Old Navy (I love ON) and is a Taschen book. Its super, super
duper cool! Its chocked full of vintage Mexican art. Advertising, movie posters, paintings,
cartoons, book covers.

Definitely worth getting if its still available!

ha ha--you were hoarding your black velvet Virgin of Guadalupe--and I don't blame you--I am just uber envious as I can't paint anything (well, I can if it is clear!)  I am going to google the book...nighty

Are you ready to behold the insane goodness of what DianaJeanne sent me?

Do you like it really?  I'm so excited... I've never painted on velvet before though I've wanted to for years now and I thought it was the perfect opprotunity & would match the bag I made! hahaha... I'm so happy you like it!  YEAHHHHHHHHHH  Cheesy  - I of course had two of the book and felt I was being selfish hording them both so I had to pass on a copy and this was the perfect swap for it.   Cool 

Happy Swapping everyone, this was an AWESOME one!!!

Oh man! Another freaking awesome painter! That cross is fantastic!  I love how each skull is different!  Great swap goodies--are the things in the box stickers, too? They look so small and cool!
