since they arent sealed, you could also add a little water and food coloring (depending on what holiday) when the light hits the colored water i bet that would cast some awesome colors in the room! 

This is awesome!!!

here are the items nmcakemom07 sent in the first package:

she made these for the kids a boy calavera for my son and a purple (her favorite color) one for my daughter (they arent getting these until after dia de los muertos)!!!

the detail is wonderful!!

she also sent me:
dia de los muertos faux sugur skulls (so using these for my altar this year)

frida kahlo mercado bag

sugur skull and catrina/catrin molds!!! how exciting!!! (with the merengue powder so i have all i need to make them!!)

awesome blanket with a skull print (my doggie was already breaking it in!

beautiful bracelets

beautiful rosario

and dia de muertos couple to add to my collection (she did not know i collected figurines so that was a great surprise) - it did get here decapitated but nothing a little E6000 cant fix.
and if that wasnt enough - today i received a second package from UPS.  I was floored as I didnt tell her but I collect "mexican inspired" dolls.... and look at this beautiful Frida I can add to my collection:::

Jill, Thank you so much for all the wonderfulness!  what a great package!!! i was in love with everything! and everything will be used for this Dia de Los Muertos!!!!

WOW.  just finished uploading the pics of all the wonderfulness my partner sent me and that took FOREVER!!! For some reason I can only upload one pic at a time and when you have so much to share, it can be an overwhelming task!  I am expecting one last package tomorrow from UPS.  Im very excited and very touched at all the care that nmcakemom07 put into this swap.  she is the greatest swap partner and this has been my best swap by far!!  get ready to see some wonderful pics tomorrow!!
