We have been busy around here! Getting ready for Lydia's ice show this weekend means lots of driving to the ice rink as usual. Last month, I joined the Coraline Mystery Box Swap hosted by My Little Mochi and that has kept me busy and worried. Worried because I knew there would be swappers with tons of talent participating in this swap and I wanted to please my partner so I thought hard about what to do. My ideal project would have been to make a doll similar to the Coraline doll in the movie but I just couldn't make one that was good enough. Thank goodness I found a great pattern for the Cyclops squid thingie and he came out great. See him over there?
I also decided to make a shrink plastic bracelet which came out so detailed and cool and I made some fabric pins. I felt bad in a way for using so many downloaded images and not drawing any myself but my drawing skills are so bad, that I knew it would be horrid. So the box is on its way to California, hopefully it will get there today or tomorrow.

I rec'd your box today and oh my goodness, every time I look at the cyclops I'm stunned. How in the world??? Thank you so much for all the work and love you put into your Coraline box! I love the little bracelet and pins too--did you use Shrinky Dinks? You did such an amazing job! Thank you!!! :)

Hi Jane,

I received my Swapapalooza today. Oh my goodness. You are a creative genius. I LOVE my scarf. I can't wait to wear it. I've told everyone about it. It's gorgeous, beautiful colours, so soft, and sooooo amazing!

Am playing the mix CD as I type. So many good tracks (the first made me laugh because I walked down the aisle to an Amelie song - good memories).

Thank you, thank you, you are the bomb and then some.
