Coleus Mama for Alice in Sweden ~ Day 5 She's Finished!

By Janet Colvin (UniQueTreasures) on June 13, 2010

Today is Alice in Sweden's Birthday and I hope you'll share your birthday wishes for her here! We cut the main stem into 2 pieces so it would be easier to ship to Sweden, added flowers to her hat and made her jewelry. Then we torched the sculpture with color. She's complete now and absolutely gorgeous! I hope you will enjoy watching her creation. She's been so much fun to work on. Thank you Alice and Jan for allowing us to create a special birthday gift for a very special lady.

Coleus Mama for Alice in Sweden

~

Day 5

 

We cut the main stem into 2 pieces so it would be easier to ship. Added flowers to her hat and made her jewelry.  Then torched the sculpture with color. 

She's complete now and absolutely gorgeous!  I hope you will enjoy watching her creation.  She's been so much fun to work on.  I sure wish I was hand delivering her to Sweden!  She's been mailed and I received an email from Alice's Husband that the Coleus Mama arrived at the end of this week.

Today is Alice's Birthday and I hope you'll share your birthday wishes for her here!

Many photos and videos were taken on this final day of creation.  To make it easier on the folks who have dial-up, I am including a link to the slide show from this point (Day 5) and will only add a few of the photos of the finished Coleus Mama.  To see the show from the beginning Click on the link.

Happy Birthday Alice!!!!

Many hugs from,

Janet & Connie

Grattis på födelsedagen! (Congratulations on your birthday)
Ja må du leva, ja må du leva, ja må du leva uti hundrade år.
Javisst ska du leva, javisst ska du leva, javisst ska du leva uti hundrade år.

 

Special thanks to Alice's husband, Jan.

Connie and I also want to thank Hillary and Cammie once again for helping with the photography and video productions.  Without you girls, we'd be doing this with 3 hands instead of 4!
