ok, i received my amazing stuff from ceceandrea yesterday. my color was green. i apologize in advance for the bad picture quality.

sight: a leaf on some beautiful paper in a really nice wooden frame. it says "exhibit a: (the tree claims i am a jewelry thief)". i've just modified the back of the frame a tiny bit so i can hang it up and its now hanging above my bed. i liked this a lot because my bedroom is sort of treehouse inspired and i have a lot of plants around, also its really beautiful and very much my style.

touch: she made me a bag out of a really cute placemat. i like it a lot, i'm not sure what to store in it yet.

taste: this was really cool. i got a ready-made garden party, featuring a recipe book telling me how to cook a full green meal (with pictures!), a shopping list, place cards, and invitations. lots of pictures of this.

smell: four packets of tea. she wrapped them in lovely paper and on the inside of the packet there are little notes/stories/treasures. i've only opened two, i wanted to save the others for a surprise.

hearing: a cd by sinead lohan. i'm listening to it right now and its so good! and actually does remind me of the color green, aside from her being irish.

thank you andrea! you did a really great job, i wish you could have seen me opening the package.

2  i have less patience. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by beckx on: June 04, 2004 12:43:12 AM
that's lovely.

i made an origami mobile last summer using two wire clothes hangers. i unbent the wire and shaped it the way i wanted. then i attached cranes to the wire with twist ties and wrapped some transparent flowers i had made around the wire frame.

3  fish embroidery. in Needlework: Completed Projects by beckx on: June 03, 2004 11:41:22 PM
hi guys, this is my first post here.

i embroidered this little guy yesterday on a skirt i was bored with. its done freehand based on a colored pencil drawing of fish i did a few years ago. i traced the basic outline of the fish on the skirt in pencil and then worked from the drawing for the rest. i also added some sequins, i tend to put sequins on everything. i'm really happy with how it turned out, though i didn't work as carefully as i should have so its a little messier than i would have liked.

here she is...

the colors are brighter in person, the skirt is more of a lemon yellow than gold.
