Tatting, tatting, and more tatting....when possible

First is this necklace I had to make to encourage a very young girl who is going through a rough time and is saying that God doesn't love her.  I don't know the situation, but I really felt this might help her remember that He does love her.  It says God loves Renae with an Everlasting Love.
The heart is a "Shrinky-Dink" printed from the computer, then cut into shape and holes punched, then put in the oven to shrink and harden.  Then tatting added in size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Splash.
And below is the back and I glued a little glittery angel on it.
 I have been working on the 2nd of 4...18 foot beaded garlands for my friend.  Here is the link to the first finished one:
And here are many other things I have worked on, attempted, or am still working on.  :)
Don't look too close...somethings are supposed to be a surprise to show later.  Ha Ha since I know you can see it!!  :)

You have a lot of irons in the fire! Is the shrinky-dink plastic? I hope the necklace will be of comfort to the young girl.

Hi Jane, yes, the shrinky-dink is a plastic. It's lightweight even when it hardens. I have a lot of people praying for this young one and any others who might feel the same way.
Here is a link to Shrinky Dinks online:
