yea she did a great job on the mirror!  Something like that could have come out really tacky but it is totally pretty and classy ^^

and thanks - I hand wrote the stuff on the umbrella but I wrote it out on a piece of paper first and taped that underneath so I could trace on top with the paint.  But yea, it took a while... especially the rainbow-which was pretty much free hand-mostly because I get really anal about things like straight lines... haha.  And the cats were painted the same way but with clip art print outs taped under.  I was going to stencil them, but I figured it wouldn't really work because there would be no hard surface to press against.

isn't the scarf amazing? Wink I'm so in love with it!  And it's definitely a large item- no question about it.  I can't wait for Ithaca winter to set in so I can use it... well, no, ok, I can wait, but I'll be happier for the cold weather since I'll be able to wear the scarf. Wink I finally took pictures and since I'm still so over the moon about the package I'm going to make you look at some of these too, haha.

Here's a group shot, including the stationary set and movie she bought me!
The mirror is missing because it's already up on my wall:

excuse our nasty rug... haha

mirror action shot:

she did a better job getting the whole scarf in one picture, but here it is, laid out on my roommates bed (mine is lofted) haha

it's super soft too!

and a couple of detail shots on the umbrella I sent to Jazz- glad you got to use it (well, sort of, haha)... it's been rainy here lately too

thanks once again for such an awesome swap PrincessJazz!

Oh, and I took this picture for you all, just for fun, before I left the city to come up to school in August:

eep, I'm so sorry the paint got messed up in the mail!  I hope there aren't any problems with it in the rain... I mean, it's fabric paint so it should certainly be waterproof but it was my first time painting an umbrella Wink haha

I'm so glad you like the pincushion, it took a while for me to figure out how to make it work.  I tried to put a magnet on the bottom for pin-picking up but the magnets I had weren't strong enough to work with the bathtub feet in the way. haha.  I found the little tub online at a bridal party favor website... the shipping cost was a little absurd but the bathtub itself was so cheap that it balanced out... and it came with a little soap and scrubby thing haha.

anyway, I'm so glad you liked everything... I still have that one other item that I'm sad is so slow in making/is not really coming out how I wanted since I put so much time into it... but alack alas, we shall see if it gets done.

PrincessJazz- if you want to post pictures of what you sent me- go ahead!  If not, I will try to get them up soon.  I was so seriously spoiled with such an amazing package full of extras to boot that it all needs to be shown off.  I promise you'll all be jealous Wink !!

Shocked we'll see...

I'm so glad you like it all! Smiley

the duck is actually a stash whimsy... all the way from a toy museum in a small town in Germany (near the border of Poland) about a year ago. Shocked The woman in the museum (which was like 4 small rooms) had these teensy matchbox diorama kits to give to the kids who came- which had like 2-3 of those small ducks, a tiny tree and a slightly bigger frog guy in them... at 18 I didn't really qualify as a kid but she gave me one anyway. haha

another fun origin story- the two fanta/soda can charms in your faves picture came from a flea market in Paris about 5 years ago... I had coke and pepsi ones too which I made in to earrings for myself not long after, but have no idea where those are now Wink haha

I think some of the ribbon might be from another country as well... the Netherlands maybe?  Or Italy (Milan)?  My mom picked it up for me when she was on a business trip somewhere interesting...

goldfishpollywog - the stars aren't as hard as they look Wink haha.  Actually, I don't know if I could still make 'em very well, but I made them all the time in middle school and collected them in a small jar.  And yes, the U shaped eye thing is Smiley
