I've recieved an awesome pakage from Jemimah!

She chose Franz Marc and Victorian from my list of themes and created these two tiny objects:

A Franz Marc inspired box (yes its my Avatar pic that she HAND PAINTED onto the box!)

I've been showing everyone since I've gotten it, it's just so amazing!

Inside the box was this beautiful Victorian Style 'jet' necklace:

Thanks Jemimah, I only hope you like what I've made you!


I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.

That painting is uncanny! Looks just like the original. So beautiful.

Alright, I'm a little late but here's the lovely gift Waterbaby sent me. It's will be cherished.

It's made in a way I've never seen up close before. Image transfer on brass, and a polymere clay frame with inks and metallic rubs.

The subject matter is very important to me. The quote is from Constantin Stanislavksi, who was the inspiration for a group called the "Group Theatre". The Group Theatre had a monumental impact on the art of acting, as they were sort of the founders of "Method acting" I'm a studying actress myself, and Stanislavski has been a huge inspirtaion to me. This summer I even got to study at the school created by one of the original group theatre members AND the only one to study with Stanislavski himself - Stella Adler. So, needless to say, this piece is very important to me and I was just really thrilled to receive it. Thank you again, Waterbaby! I will love it forever Smiley

Here's a close up, I love the framing. I'm going to have a go of it myself!

That quote/picture is gorgeous, what a lovely effect! Great pendants too, well done everyone Smiley

I'm so glad you like your tiny things Ralph Grin

I can't claim to have entirely free-handed the painting, (I didn't have time to do that I'm afraid, so I did cheat a bit to get the shapes right), but all the colours and shading were done just by eye. So much fun to do, I love the way Franz Marc used colour!

Since we sent about the same time, I think the postie might have something for me later today ... Cheesy

I like that, really nice.

I've received an amazing package from Ralph!

Ancient Near Eastern lions!! (I think they are Babylonian.) Necklace and earrings, in a matching metal box.

Aren't they awesome? She put sand in the poly clay to give them a cool texture.

Thanks so much  Ralph, they are great (and fierce Cheesy)!

I received on Monday from AKAmber, but due to an ill-conceived tidying up, I misplaced my camera for a couple of days. Now, however, here they are

They are stone (quite heavy stone too) tiles, decorated with images of Queen Elizabeth I. They are backed with felt & so I will use them as coaters.
Also included was this tea wallet

Thank you very much AKAmber. I love them. I only hope you love yours as much (and that it gets there sometime this year).

What do you mean cute? They are ferocious!! They inspire terror before the might of my ancient despotic empire!! Wink
