I received today my beautiful tin from ashestoashes! From my themes, she was choosing 'Amelie' and this is what she made:

The front of the tin. It has a decoupaged image of Amelie and the border has little dots, and I love the round shape!

The back of the tin:

The Inside. She used here one of my favorite images with the rabbit cloud  Smiley. And the other part of the tin is covered with red and white fabric resembling Amelie's umbrella:

And inside there are these magnets: Eiffel tower, a gnome and the little fish jumping out of the tank trying to commit 'suicide' Grin I love it!:

and a skull eraser, a cute 'blubber' goldfish and a super cute garden gnome pin who did travel around the world to get here to Europe  Cheesy

Thanks so much ashestoashes! I love it!

I got today a FABULOUS package from Modus Operandi! I am in love with everything, she sent me so many beautiful things!  Just have a look at the pics.

Everything together:

This beautiful tweet love frame:

A christmas clip-on owl:

A cute and funny fluffy bird fellow! I need to say that my daughter jumped to try to reach it as soon as she saw it! it was hard for me to take the pic because she wanted to hold it on her hands and keep it. After the photo she took it and does not want to give it to me Cheesy

Then this super pretty birdie box. I think I will keep some jewelry inside:

And this fabulous ring! It is wood with a painted bird! I am in love with it:

And she sent me this beautiful framed and signed bird picture! I love it! I already have a space in my wall for it:

She even asked me if I would like something from USA and as I love the Nestle turtles and we don't have them here, she included some! yummy!  Smiley

Thanks again Modus Operandi for these great items.  It is night here so I did not have a good light for the pics, if you have better pics feel free to post them. I love my bird goodies!  Smiley

With all my excitement for showing yesterday the pics of the amazing things that Bobolink sent me, I did not even have a look to the other pictures but now I did and wow, again so many great things!

jane feebles -- The bad monkey you made is just amazing!  Shocked I love, love, love it! so many details! WOW
alwaysinmyroom - all the things you sent koi are great. I love that skirt!! and the box and bag are so beautiful too!
simplyfussfree -- I love the stenciled shirts and necklace you made, especially the octopus shirt is awesome!
redpopsicles -- The shirts you made are great too, specially the reading is sexy one, I love it!
A-Patchwork Orange - Those placemats are to die for! and the apron!!! and all the beautiful buttons! wow
kiwimonkey - all the hairpins! how beautiful is that? and the wonder woman purse is perfect with that fabric! it was well worth the wait for it!

So after giving all my comments in one post, I will save space and une the same post for showing the pics of the things I sent Bobollink. A few pics are very bad because the batteries of the digicam were almost dead, but here they are:

She wanted a journal, so I made this one in A4 size (almost letter size) with a painted wooden cover. We all know Bobolink's love for birds, so this was my main theme. The pages were printed with birds and nature images too  Smiley

A needlefelted bird

Notecards set, with bird design  Smiley

3 necklaces: a birds necklace, a gnome necklace and a toy tree necklace

and a lanyard that I could not photograph anymore because the digicam battery died

and just a quick update about the great things I got from Bobolink: my daughter is like crazy in LOVE with her mouse!  She is playing all the time and does not go anywhere without the mouse  Cheesy yesterday the mouse visited already many places. And she wanted to have the bookmark too!  Cheesy  I told her that it was mine but she wanted it. I needed to play a mouse voice and using her new mouse I needed to tell her that the bookmark  belongs to mami, only then when the mouse told her, she stoped asking for it  Cheesy

I finished one shrine!  I made it Frida-themed and tried not to go too colorful on this one.  The front panel opens to the front, so I took pics of different angles of the outside and the inside to have a better idea of how it looks all together...

I am working on another little shrine, a very different one. I will post the pic as soon as I am done  Smiley
