Magic from Mary: Swapping with kindness!

Good evenin' good folk!

As you know I do a three way swap from time to time and I wanted to share some of the amazing and thoughtful beauties I received from Mary! of M's minis and more.

Mary was so kind to have sent me this bounty of supplies and wonderful hand crafted mini's, even though my swap to her turned into a gooey mess ;(..  Apparently the acrylic I used turned sour and gloppy in the heat. Now I drop $$ on reliable sculpty glaze ;P

Mary I know you have trouble with your email.. So if this is the first time you heard I sent you a nice fat replacement package... well I "done did that"  Stalk the postman on Monday or check my flicker ;P
Ok on to the show!!!
A bounty of beautiful supplies and wonderfully made mini's yes?
Mary knew my daughter was now fascinated with collecting rocks and we are going to be doing displays for her, shadowbox style, as her collection grows. She sent life sized stones for my daughters collection and produced the biggest smile on my daughters face ;)
Mary crafted this AMAZING!! stone display with these amazing rock and mineral books. They are so wonderful!
Of course Mary made sure to send more supplies for future projects. I am sure a Gemstone Roombox will be in order to go with my daughters Bakery Box.
She picked the most amazing array of gems and findings, filigrees and stones to make my mini head swirl with ideas!
I want to thank you again Mary for sending such wonderful things my way! I am truly humbled by your generosity and thoughtfulness.
I hope my makeup package ..makes up for the sticky mess ;P
