Those are wonderful, I love the jar lids and I love the butterfly painting especially. What is TriChem - how is it actually done?

I love the little piggy! And what a nice way to keep your memories. When I moved at the weekend, I found lots of old cards and photos from my 18th, 21st and my graduation and I would love to do something wonderful with those so I may take inspiration from you.

My mom has had this angel out at Christmas every year since I can remember. I was always just white. Christmas 2008 I told her I was stealing it so I could paint it. It took me a year + to get to it, but only two evenings to paint it. I modeled it somewhat after my mom.

I love the way you painted the angel. I could never have done it that well. It's absolutely perfect!

I like having everything in one thread so that I can look back through them all at one time.
