Package from the Netherlands





Yesterday, I received a package all the way from the Netherlands...and what was inside blew my mind. LOL Over at DAG, we had our first Challenge and it we decided to make it a swap challenge. We all had to create a skull. Since everyone works in different types of mediums, we were all excited to see what everyone would create. Well, my partner was Esther Verschoor, who resides in the Netherlands (you know, where Peter Jackson lives)! Not only did Esther send me her Skull she made, she also enclosed a beautiful handmade necklace that she created for me. It's absolutely beautiful and my pictures do not give it justice.



Now, here is the Skull that Esther made for the Skull Challenge!





I have another ornament to hang on my Studio Tree! Thank you so much Esther for the wonderful Necklace and the awesome Skull Ornament. To see more of Esther's work, please visit her website, http://vanessies.deviantart.com/ or her Blog http://vanessies.blogspot.com/

Well, I'm off to finish some projects! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's Out THERE!



Until Next Time...
CHEERS!

Wow and Wow! I love Esther's work but, yeah, this one isn't "Cute and Fluffy" :D

Girl, how do you do it? Every week it seems there is some kind of package coming to you--I want that kind of mojo...to draw other people to send exquisite creative stuff! ;)
