Dear Geraldine,

Thank you very much for the lovely package of blinging goodies that you sent my way. I've been having so much fun!

Look at this, not one, but three lily shuttles! The one in the middle is my favorite, and it looks that way accidentally. See how white the lilies look? That's because I did not separate all the layers of the napkin. I thought I had, but after applying the Mod Podge, I realized I hadn't. The lilies that look green and yellow look that way because I did remove all the extra layers of napkin, and the shuttle color shows through. Now I understand why Decoromana paints her shuttles with white acrylic paint before applying the napkin!

What do you think of the leopard shuttles? I added glitter nail polish to the one. I think I should have left it alone. Maybe a female leopard would like it, though. I think the flower shuttles turned out great! I like that the pink and blue of the shuttles shows through. In this case, I think the glitter was the perfect touch. It kind of reminds me of flowers in the garden after a rain shower!

Here you see a picture of my first two shuttles with the adhesive paper that I blogged about. I'm very pleased with the results! I'll be sending you samples of the paper with your shuttles.

Thanks again for all the goodies! I haven't touched the chocolate yet. On Tuesday, I forgot it was Tuesday. I'm not quite sure how that happened. Luckily, there's another Tuesday coming up soon!

Time to get some tatting done...



  1. My, my, you have been busy! They all look gorgeous, but the first set are my favorites. :-)

    We'll have to do a shuttle swap when I get a shuttle or two blinged - I love your work. :-D

    P.S. Did you see that there's a person on Etsy selling decorated Clover shuttles???
