I got two phenomenal gifts in the mail, and I wanted to share them with everyone! First, from Kristy, another smoking possum with a cool tree trunk ashtray! Long story short, some time ago, Kristy gave me a smoking possum play set, which is now displayed on my nightstand, right next to my moving hula girl lamp, tree trunk night light, and Bose iphone dock. Well, my boyfriend Lance saw it and fell in love, naturally! So, I made Kristy two hideous fish on a board and she, in turn, made me yet another uber cool smoking possum set!!! Here it is:
The other gift I received was from another talented friend, Grace, whose dark sensibility, imagination, and ingenuity I adore. She makes fantastic books (among a seemingly ENDLESS variety of other miniatures), so she sent me some, and a bitchin fisherman's net, complete with floaters!!! Not pictured are the tiny, real animal bones she included (which I always put to good use ;-)). I gave her some fish, one flopping and one not, and a bit of fruit and mushrooms.
- Thanks guys!!! I LOVE THEM ALL!!!!!!! Below are links to their blogs:

Son dos regalos o intercambios maravillosos, los animalitos de Kristy, son adorables, y la red de pesca y libros, son fantásticos.ReplyDelete
Do you have friends that make you great gifts, you are very luckyReplyDelete
Me encantan los animalitos de Kristy y e tuyo es adorable.ReplyDelete
La red de pesca es una verdadera maravilla, enhorabuena por esas fantasticas miniaturas.
Well I'm extremely ecstatic that you like the little guy Kiva, and I hope Lance will too (HEY!!!!!, he's going to see this!! You've ruined the surprise!!)ReplyDelete
And I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, I'm sooooo excited to get my very own Kiva miniatures, to actually hold them and look at them in person. I'm definitely getting the better deal here.
Kiva, can I hire you as my photographer? I can never get such super close up pics that are nice and sharp like that, and how the hell do you do that white background!!!!!??
Wow, I just visited Grace's website! Her work is incredible!! I love her nautical minis, the tiny lanterns,the floats; and she makes such a variety of different things. That ambulance is killer!
Hey Kristy, just so you know, Kiva shows me everything before she sends it to me as a gift.ReplyDelete
She is wack like that, but I love her regardless!! It looks awesome by the way!! I think I have to wait till my b-day to get it though, arrgghh!!
Fantastic gifts, both by talented miniaturists!ReplyDelete
LOL, Lance! I suck at surprises myself. Glad you like him. She told me what else she got you, but....I'm not telling in case she was able to keep it a secret.ReplyDelete
Yes, I am guilty as charged :-/. When I'm going to give a gift I'm excited about, it somehow slips out. But this slipped out in a BIG way!!!!ReplyDelete
Hey Kristy. Odds are, Kiva already told me, lol!ReplyDelete
I really love her smoking possums :). Kristy, they are great ! And make a great swap with Kiva's fishes :). IMO, they are equal exchange, not too shabby at all.ReplyDelete
Been a big fan of Grace since don't know when.
