An Icicle weekend...

Recently I was in an Icicle Doll Swap run by Belinda Schneider. I have found these little dolls to be quite addictive and found myself making three more of them this weekend.

I wanted to send a little giftie to a couple of friends and thought these little girls were just the thing. I posted them off today, so they should be jetsetting around the world soon.

Have also posted a couple of pics of some bird ATC's made for a swap run by one of the yahoo groups I am a member off. Over a ten month period we have made three ATC's each month and sent to each person participating in the swap. This picture is of two ATC's using fabric and Cavallini bird stickers. (posted these pics after the icicle dolls so dont know why they are above them!!!).
This week I will be working on a visual Journal Page for a swap which will take place over a six month period. Each month we are given a word/theme. This month I have chosen balance... thus far I have my background painted, but will soon have it finished and post a picture.
Also working on a cover and page for a fabric journal Round Robin. Very excited about this swap and been busily going through fabrics, trims, beads, buttons etc. in readiness for this one.
