Are you impressed? That's not all, either -- I have three or four boxes at my 'rents' house.
And kmiotutsie sent me a present for my birthday!!! I'm not one to care about when a present arrives, especially if it's something as awesome as this. Purple + glass = two of my favorite things in one! I love glass, that's the real reason I bead. I like playing with glass... it's so beautiful. Did you know that it's actually not solid? Over a long period of time, it will flow down with gravity. Anyway, here's the awesome ornament:
I really like that first photo, it seems so artistic to me. And that round thing is a mirror that happens to be refecting a painting I did that is hanging on the opposite wall.
misemifein2 also sent me a fantastic present a while ago, and I just can't get a color-accurate shot of it, it's almost exactly vivid violet, somewhere between these two shots:
Thank you so much Kat and Kate! And Anika and Kyra too, I haven't forgotten yours! I have the best LJ-friends ever.
I made some awesome earrings and took photos of me wearing them:
