    The olny difference with the eye candy is that they don't need to be icy blue. anycolor is perfect.

    Well shoot, I typed all this once, don't know where it went though.
    Love the fan blade idea, going to be in the swap arsenal for me.
    Welcome Cee-Emm, missmegm, lacemuse and goatgoddess
    Goatgoddess shoot me your email and I'll send it in a different format
    Size- the beautiful one I have from missmegm, is 2 inches at it's widest and 7 inches long. Danglies are wonderful should you wish to decorate your that way.

    yes, it's the holidays so use GLITTER... Please make sure it's well adhered, since my asthma hates it.

    He's cracking himself up- and giving a slap. Glitter is called Herpes of the crafting world. And icicles just sparkle with glitter. Please add me to the glitter list of icicles.

    Welcome Bridget, moonrose and Yaqui13

    Bridget, It is the gift that keeps on giving all year long. (Christmas vacation reference) Yes, I am a Christmas movie geek.

    Moonrose I love that yours are almost done, missmegm showed me 2 of hers that are ready. They have polymer faces.

    Yaqui doll swaps are addictive, but not bad for your health.
