Amazing! I first looked at the picture and thought of a quilt, then I realized they must be tiny to cover a matchbox!  Shocked Is it even humanly possible to stitch such tiny stars!?!?! Love it!

Love it! When I looked at the thumbnail I though it might be a look inside our bodies but when I read universe I could not get the image of me floating around the constelations! Great job!

I remember those! My great-aunt had a collection in her homw (they were trapped behind a "display" cabinet so touching was impossible. I love how modern and sort of gothic looking yours is! Great find and amazing job  for $2.50!

Lovely work! I love Peanuts!

Maybe ill get an Angel to send my stuff to, but the purpose of this swap for me was to get back into art, to get inspired. Its been almost a year since I made art or dropped art and needed a little impulse. Thanks to the great discussion thread and ideas that you guys have put forward I was moved to start expresing myself thru art. Since finishing the swap package I made a bigger piece ! And now Im planning a BIG piece (by my standards). And I got my first Personal Swap proposal Cheesy
As you can see IM VERY HAPPY TO HAVE JOINED CRAFTSTER AND THIS SWAP! Thank you jmiller for letting this noobie in! Grin

Ive been missing since Tuesday and already people are receiving!  I dont know if I mentioned this before or in the swap thread, but im 7 months pregnant. On Monday some test results showed that I had extremely low blood sugar and had to be kept in the Hospital untill they figures out what was wrong. I didnt have a phone and spent most of my time sleeping. But now im home and better, I have my package ready to send. I dont want you guys to think I didnt take this commitement seriusly, I did! I had my stuff ready for the send out but since its been raining non stop for days here, the paper was a little soggy. I was afraid of mailing it out like that, the paper is think but I didnt want to take any risks. Sadly my send out was delayed because of how !@$#$!! I felt, lying in the hospital with no phone (I slept most of the time anyways).

Anyhoo, I really wanted to share my package with you guys even if I dont get to send it to microjivvy anymore, I changed my original idea for this one when I realized they were going to be shipped to Florida (very similar weather to Puerto Rico's).
I was browsing a charity flea market and found a lightly used children's watercolor kit. I had never bentured into this medium so I bought it (just $2!) I got a watercolor sheet of paper and I cut (more like riped) it to 6 pieces and got to playing.
With getting ready for another baby also comes back the fun childhood memories, in particular faery tales. I love faery tales, and sharing them with my daughter (4 y/o) is our favorite before bedtime activity. Neil Gaiman's poem "Instructions" has been a favorite here for ages, and it inspired the drawings/paintings (Huh) I made for the swap.
There are important life lessons in faery tales, we must never forget that!
Now on to the pictures!

The scan makes it look crooked, but its not. The colors are more vibrant in person!

Here is the poem if you want to read it http://www.endicott-studio.com/cofhs/cofinstr.html

I would love to hear your opinion!
