Don't look at this if I'm swapping with you!!!

Firstly, here is a little Japanese girl I made to go with the babushka doll. She rocks. I also love that she's sitting in our one blossom tree. Well, our one tree actually. And it was already there when we bought the house. I need more trees!













And the other thing I've been doing is this gorgeous little set of stuffies for a craftster swap. My partner likes mermaids so I thought I'd just go with a whole sea theme. I love the mermaid and I'm so proud of her. Usually I get to the face and they are ruined with a dodgy smile or wonky eyes. But she looks like she's just laying back, resting her eyes and enjoying the spring sun. Which is what she was doing when I photographed her on these big water-feature-rock thingos at work. Needless to say I got some interesting comments and stares. Different-ness is not always embraced in Canberra...

ditto on the talent comment! you did a great job on them. I have just bought bubble jet set and have gone insane with it, it doesn't warn you on the label so beware... let me know if you have trouble getting it, my supplier is in WA. You have a great tone to your blog BTW, so funny. will be reading you regularly if you don't mind?

Wow, look at you go with the freezer paper! You make it look so easy - is it easy, printing on freezer paper that is? And have I asked you this before, where do you get your freezer paper from?

Great job on the mermaid, her face is very serene - love the long flowing locks too!
