Fairy parcels away!

Hee hee, this is so fun. *gleeful dancing ensues* I can only hope the recipient enjoys what I picked out.

In other news, I have been inspired by Craftster to put a little more DIY into my life. A few days ago I saw Kate Cusack's very cute zipper pins and thought they were quite a clever idea, but a bit steep at $70 a pop. So I picked up a red thrift-store zipper, still in its original notions sleeve, and gave it a try.

No, it's not really ready for prime time yet. Needs more petals in back. Either I need a longer zipper (this one was 16") or I'm making the outer petals too big. But I think I've got the general hang of how it comes together, and in any case it was fun to suss out the thing.

Next up: polymer clay. Fear and tremble as I proceed to fill my house with the smell of burning plasticizer!

Behold my crafting might!, or not. It was fun to try, anyway.
