If you haven't been to my sisters site, I highly recommend it. Of course I may be biased, but I don't think so, she really is AMAZING!! Here is one of her latest pieces, it was for the Under the Sea Swap on Wild at Heart Art.

I finally finished my sea swap mermaid and now I'm getting ready to send it off to it's new home. Here are a few views of it. She was made from a wooden 'lizard' that I altered for her long bendy tail. I applied paperclay to the upper portion for her face and torso, the rest is painted, glittered and encased in gold netting. With all that she's still bendy, which I think is the fun part!

As part of Kindred Crafter's coaster swap I designed the 'Flora' coasters on the right. I received the wonderful coasters by Candi below. I enjoyed the challenge of thinking out side my usual idea of what a coaster should look like.
Candi's coasters use fabric from anna marie horner, so gorgeous!
The fronts are strips and the backs are solid pieces of the same fabric. I love the colors and prints of these fabrics together.
