That kitty and poppet are just super!!

I apologize for my tardiness in posting - we decided to try one last camping trip of the season and are just back today. 

My niece, Lily, received her package from the wonderfully talented 1boy1girl1kitty2 on Saturday and the folks were able to get pictures for me before she hid everything away from her sisters....

Here is Lily wearing her cape and standing next to her goodies...

along with the cape, she also she received some of the yummy play doh - pink and purple, her favorite!! Grin
some awesome mix 'em markers, the cutest John Deer pink camoflauge pouch with 3 memory games and a gorgeous baby quilt & quilted pillow

the hooded cape that we have not been able to get off of her since she opened the package (she even went to sleep with it on Saturday night Cheesy)

a side view of the cape's hood (so, so cute!!!!!)

Thank you for crafting for Lily, 1boy1girl1kitty2 - and for making it such a fabulous package!  We loved it all!!  Perfect!! Wink

OMG!! Shocked  That fish is amazing!!  So adorable!

The Dirty Dancing shirt brings back sooo many memories....(ahh those were the days Cheesy)....fabulous job!!

From CrazyRed -> Nikimac: Those are some awesome grail cups (what did you use to paint them on the glass?), and that Monster's Inc. tray is too cute!

Thank you!  Actually the glasses are not glass at all, they are some unbreakable plastic blend that I can't spell or pronounce, and I used acrylic paint and clear varnish to seal.  The bowl was glass and using the same process, it turned out....not so well Undecided.  The paint definately liked the plastic better Cheesy

crazyred, the Monsters Inc serving tray was awesome (as well those Star wars Pez dispensers), Nikimac it looked like there were some necklaces in the picture of everything but I couldn't make out what they were, am I wrong?

Thanks!!  The Pez were something the universe just decided that Nikimac should have Grin - you know, one of those things that just kinda "fell out of the sky" once partners were assigned.... Wink

I hope that Nikimac doesn't mind, but here's a photo that I took of the Star Wars stuffs....

Star Wars movie poster/domino magnet
Vader was Framed/ceramic tile magnet
TIE fighter/Storm Troopers pendant

Love, love the painted flour sack towel and the bottle opener (too funny!!) 

Whew....I swear, I've been fighting Murphy's Law with everything around here Tongue.  In my most amazing package from ehinders was this beauty that must've jumped ship as I opened the package and proceeded to fall into the couch.  Then, when I find it - camera dead.  Had to wait a couple of extra days to figure out new camera and now, without further ado, the most gorgeous bottle dressing Shocked....

Again, a very BIG thank you to ehinders, what a fabulous package!!

Super gallery so far!! 

I looovve that cheese tray (great idea/work jca1982 Smiley)!

And those notecards are really beautiful mambosushi!  Works of art!

I received from ehinders over the weekend but was away from home - what a package to come home to!!

Here are my lovelies......

First are these fantastic glasses....my kitchen bar decor is bright, bright, bright and these beauts fit right in Wink

Unfortunately, I could not get a good enough picture of the bottom of the glasses, which says in the same purple of the grapes, 'Wine is the Fruit of Life'.


adorable!!  and currently living in my office Grin

Now, how about a little wine, I mean, art?......My favorite!!

the photo doesn't do the color justice.  More brightness that I love Grin Grin!!!  And, soooo true!!!  This artwork will be going on the wall behind the bar Wink

group shot of everything....

Thank you, sooo much, ehinders!!  I love it all!!  L-O-V-E, L-O-V-E, L-O-V-E!  Grin

What an great gallery this is turning out to be.  Everyone is so talented!!

After the most absolutely horrid week, I came home to an amazing package from Beelisty today.  My camera doesn't come close to showing the marvelous stitch work.

First was this wonderful magnet, which is especially apropos at the moment....

Followed by this gorgeous piece of work (one of my all time heroes...Alice Paul - she'll be going into work with me on Monday)

This next piece of artistry literally brought me to tears, in a good way Wink, it is so moving and beautiful to me - I can't even begin to express how much it means to me. 

And a picture of everything with the literature that Beelisty was able to gather up, which my daughter pretty much absconded with as soon as I got it photographed.....

Thank you so much, Beelisty!  I swear you must be psychic, everything was just so perfect!
