Wow- what a great start to the gallery! I love the green bracelet (GMS and I have similar tastes)... but I think my favorite is the rainbow trees! Super-cute and well made!

The rainbow trees are super cute!

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

You can keep the minty lip gloss, I want the rest!  Seriously, I love each and every thing in that package.  I even love the jewelry and I'm not really into a lot of jewelry.  Great start to our gallery.  The bar has been set, and boy is it high!

Love personal swaps!!!!!

Thanks so much everyone Smiley  All your comments put a big smile on my face just now...and at 11pm when I have to be up at 5am for work, that's a huge feat to be accompllished, lemme tell ya *insert snoring smiley here...ZZZZzzzzz*  LOL!

The button wall art was made as a replica of the one I made for me, cuz GMS loved it so much!  I thought adding the cloud applique was a fun touch, so I went with it.

The rainbow tree applique was inspired by a painting on her wists...lemme see if I can find the item and if the link still works, cuz all I did was commit the thumbnail image of it to memory and made up my own color scheme...ah, here it is...was added from sheepblue's wists it says Smiley


I basically choose to reverse the idea of the multicolors on everything to be normal colored sky (I happened to have gotten the scrap of 'sky' fabric off etsy a few months back) and make the trees and hills all crazy colors, cuz GMS LOVES brightly colored stuff.  I also originally thought of making the tree tops heart shaped instead of round, but I liked the look of round much better, and it lends itself much closer to the inspiration piece.

I keyed in (pun COMPLETELY intended! LOL!) to her love of keys that I saw throughout her wists, and that she likes jewelry she doesn't know she's wearing by it being small and lightweight.  The green glass necklace is a bit heavy, I know, but as an occasional piece I'm sure it will be great.  I made myself a bracelet with those resin beads as well, mine are squares and triangles.

Totes are always welcomed at GMS's house, so I added to her collection with it, and the crazy tassel bookmarks are a cute little extra to throw into any package, especially for someone that reads.

And because I LOVE them so much...more pics of the fab rainbow button art and lollipop trees Smiley  That lollipop tree applique almost didn't make it into the box!

Special detail around the frame, rainbow decorative thread Smiley  Last minute thought and I'm SO glad I did it cuz I think it just makes the piece.

Necklace, in case you couldn't already tell there was a lock and key on it Smiley

I'm SO glad you love everything, GMS, enjoy it all!  Can't wait to get mine...I already know what one item will be as we were gonna personal swap for it, and I'm SOOOO excited to get it and wear it!!

I'm a little bit country, and I'm a little bit rock and roll.

I wish my stitch work was that neat, lol.  My sewn things look like they were sewn with my feet in a dark room.  LOVE the whole thing, can't pick a fave.
