They are very nice!, the last one looks as if you carved it from a stone and that one to me looks very Mexican, like the Aztec Calendar style.

Here where I live, sometimes there is a sunday market and one day there was a stand of Buddhist stuff, really nice things btw. and they also had those suns and I got 3 of them with the same intentions as you: to paint them very colorful, but they are still waiting for it...I will get soon into them and I'll come to post them, they look like the first sun of your photo.

Good job!
Greetings to you and the community Smiley

If she is such a busy saleswoman i would give her an agenda that has nice inspirational phrases about taking a breath, relaxing, stopping to think in what really matters, that kind of stuff...i don't know if such agenda exists on shops but you can make one but there is no much time left so is plenty of work...

You could also get her a machine to give her a feet bad so when she comes so tired from work nothing nicer than a feetbad Smiley ...they are quite affordable and they give massage and stuff...

good luck Smiley

Hi again, well reading the ideas you like and what you say that you want her to remember the good times and to keep in touch, well...

What about that you buy those candies she can't find in her own country but then you cover them with new candy wrap made by you with thoughts of things you did together or a bag anyway you like but with instructions included saying that every candy represents special moments you shared together so that every time she picks one she will think on you...

You could also make some nice agenda that includes your address, your email, your birthdate and then you can include plenty of envelopes and a nice paper to write you with a pen like a hint, this paper could have a nice photo of both of you together but as a water mark or something like that

If i come up with something else during the day, I'll come to post it Smiley
You seem to be a great friend!

Is very nice!, I love the angel

You can also use latex, just have to brush it on the object you want to copy and then when is dry you can pour plaster...also clay is a good and cheap way to leave the copy and then you pour plaster.

and a lil tip for your paper mache dough, just add a tablespoon of chalk, because as paper is organic in a time it could grow some fungus and with the chalk you neutralize that Smiley

Hi, I've read your message two times, but i don't get yet what kind of ideas you need from us, I speak Spanish as mother tongue, so if you could be more specific in your request, I'm sure i could be able to help you

But i think the flag idea sounds too Nationalistic, i think she already knows where she is now or where she was, and where is she from, and to make something out of a flag is not very personal as your friendship that goes beyond those borders and i think what you are looking for is to show her your impression of who she is in a way that she could never forget you.

Anyway, you can PM me if you like

I applied a brown stain

What do you mean by applying a brown stain?, could it be made out of black tea?
