When things work out Perfect

I just love it when things work well.

First I had a terrible weekend. NO INTERNET. Gosh don't do that to me, I feel as if I'm cut off from the world. But we ha a cable fault and it took until yesterday to be fixed.

Then last night my female African Grey just fell off her perch and died. I sobbed so. She was my good kid. I'm waiting for the autopsy results and we're hoping it's not anything contagious like bird flu as I have a young male as well. Keep your fingers crossed.

Now to the part that worked out well. Every year I do my Christmas tree in one colour only. I go through all my ornaments and decide which of the neutral ornaments I'm going to keep and box the rest and do a beautiful tree for the local orphanage. My neighbour's 4 year old often just pops round for a visit and she usually just comes to "help" me do STUFF. While we were boxing up the ornaments she expressed the wish for an angel doll, but not one of those in the box because they're for the babies without mommies or dolls. The child is so cute, so I made an angel with a scrunchie, a table tennis ball and some feathers. I swear no battery operated doll that could pee and poo would have been so well received.

BUT that got me thinking and I wanted angel doll elements for LO's. Well with KIM's great CU stuff I was able to create the base, but soon had t send her an SOS for the frame for the head.

I think these are rather cute. I have included 2 pastel elements with 2 matching papers and 2 Xmas elements with matching papers. Here's a preview of the pastels only with a blowup of how they're used.
