Swap-package from Jane

I went to the hospital this morning to get an x-ray of my shoulders, I had to sit in the waiting room for 3 hours, they had a lot of emergency patients today, and since I've had pain in my shoulders for 3 years now I wasn't that urgent I guess... well, it was a long day, and when I finally got to take the x-rays, I had to wait again, for the result... They didn't find anything and might want me back later to look for something else.. So my day was not the best one, (But my daughter had fun at the hospital, there were some great toys there.. and my husband got almost the whole day off, because it took all day and he had to come with me to drive me and take care of our daughter when I went to the x-ray..) And then we went by the post office, and there were a package from Jane waiting for me =) A great way to end a long day =)
I most say that I have always been very impressed by Jane. She's just able to make great things, all the time.. Just look at her latest project, it has the power to give the viewer a lot of different feelings, and there is a lot of great details to look at. I want to be able to do that too ;)
And I fell totally in love with her treehouse! I have been thinking of making a fantasy scene of some kind, for a long time, but I never know were to start or what to make. So I asked Jane for some inspirational pieces for this project. (And I did mention dragons) And she spoiled me with great things! I was so happy when I saw not only one, but two dragons =) And then I realized I had more to unwrap, and guess what, there were two more dragons =) And dragon eggs (They are so wonderful I kinda hope they never hatch ;) )


My camera is still living it's own life, and today it thought it would be great to add some mysterious "Fantasy-colour" to this picture...

But I manage to get a more real picture out of it, at last =) (I have to press all the sides together and then take the picture..) =)
The dragons had a little fight on the way to Sweden, I guess that can happen when you pack 4 dragons in 1 package.. Some horns and feet had feel off, but I think I manage to glue them back were they belong now =) (after taking the picture)
I love everything! I do love green, so the green dragon may be a favourite, but its hard to choose. But, I don't have to choose a favourite, because I got them all =) They are so detailed!! And look at the eggs, so shiny and with scales! And that cakes! The little strawberry look so real and everything really looks tasty! And a great set for my magical desk! And the small glass bottle has very tiny "beads with no whole" in them, and glitter, this can be very useful at my magical home/store or what ever I finally decide to make =)
I got a little "help" arranging this picture....
And yes, that was not all, I did win Jane's clay-giveaway too =) I can see many fun hours of clay looking at this! I want to try to make a dragon of my own too. I came to like dragons a lot after seeing Merlin, the TV-series. And now, after seeing Jane's dragons, I really LOVE dragons =) so I want to make a great scene/house/store for them.
I think I should just stop thinking and start making.. Just start a smaller fantasy project right away, and maybe I can make a whole house later. The thought of making a perfect and big fantasy scene scares me, so I might just start small. And when I have these wonderful pieces I can't go wrong. Thanks Jane for pushing me in the right direction =)
I'll go to bed now, and think a little more of this project, but tomorrow I really hope to get started!

Take care
Hannah

    1. Well, since your magical clay hands actually held these pieces of clay when you packed them, I'm expecting some magic with them, it most be easy to make wonderful clay things from this, right? ;)
      Thanks again Jane for the fantastic package =)

  4. Sorry about your shoulder and the long day. It sounds like it was a happy ending after opening your gifts. Jane is quite remarkable with clay and her imagination is never ending. I am sure you will enjoy everything. Try to keep the dragons separate so they do not fight again ;-)
    Hugs,
    Lisa

    1. Yes, it was a great ending to a long day! =) I think once the dragons got out of the box, and felt freedom again, they get along well, but I might have to make/buy a wizard or someone that could keep an eye on them!

  5. I am sorry to read about your shoulder! How unfortunate that you had to waste a whole day at the hospital. Sounds like what we experience here in my country. But at least medical personnel is there to help the sick when it's needed. I wish your pain will soon go away and that you get proper care. The dragon and eggs are beautiful!!! My son would love them. And they will look wonderful in a miniature setting. I am curious to see what you will make of them :) Have a great weekend!

  7. Hi!
    And congrats: you have had wonderful swaps....Really A happy ending for your day!
    So sorry for your shoulders. Hope it will be fine soon!
    I did go and see your earlier happenings and saw that you offered me a swap in May. If I may, I'd say maybe a little later. I haven't been alright since I got the flu and I think it takes some time more to get better... so maybe in June?
    Hugs

  12. What a special package you have received from Jane. I love the orange dragon (my favourite colour) and the dragon eggs are gorgeous. I so look forward to seeing where you head with your fantasy project when you are ready to start now that Jane has given you a start and you have all that polymer clay to experiment with. Enjoy.
