The Amazing Lisa Swifka is our wonderful hostess. Please visit her blog to say thanks for all the hard work she has put into this event & to visit new blogs & make friends. This has been a spectacular event for the last four years, so come join in on the fun (click the link or the picture below to be taken to the list of participants)
If you are a first time visitor, welcome to my blog Creative Musings. My name is Nerissa Alford & I am a jewelry artist, mixed media artist & photographer (I can't just pick one medium). I am an American ex-pat currently living in Kuwait with my family. This is the 5th Year I have participated & the first that I am in the same location as the previous year. We move around quite a bit!

This year I am giving away a little package of things that remind me of Kuwait. The first items in my Kuwait care package are the photographs. I have taken all these photos here & turned into 5x7 greeting cards. You can send them with a sentiment & they are suitable for framing when it's done with it's job as a card.
|Camel Silhouette: Ditto - you'd think I was a camping fiend, but really my first camping experiences came right here in Kuwait.|
|Kuwait Skyline Card: from a Dhow cruise|
|Kuwait Towers Detail Card: This is a landmark that Kuwait is known for|
The second item is a woven ring band. You'll have to send me your ring size & favorite color. I have been so fortunate to find a bead store right here in Kuwait & take classes from the talented owners. I would be so delighted to make you a ring from the techniques I learned from them.

The last of the items will be some mystery items from Kuwait. Here are some clues:
- Since Arabic is read from right to left, all the journals & notebooks here open backwards, although they would argue that my journals open backwards.
- Sweets are a big deal here & since it's not so hot, I don't have to worry about them melting.
- Some of the food items here are totally cool!!
