For those that haven't seen it....

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. (Found on the internet and I have no idea what it actually says except Happy Birthday and a Birthday song.)

Alice's husband commissioned Connie and I to create a Coleus Mama for Alice for her birthday (yesterday). Connie and I spent 5 full days working on this creation.

You can see the creation of this sculpture here:

Well I see that the birthday was celebrated within another thread and I'm a day late and a dollar short.... story of my life!

Can't wait to see photos of the Coleus Mama in her new home country!

Hi Janet,
the weather here has been so extremely rainy and bad for the recent few days so we had to cancel and postpone my big party a few weeks. The party will be held in 3 weeks from now... the weather are usually better in July.

Yesterday: the Coleus Mama was npacked, assembled and revealed during a short break in the rain, we could actually be outdoors for 15 minutes!!! Only DH and I were present, but we had great fun! We assembled the Coleus mama and took some pics as promised. Now you can see your creation in a far, foreign country :)))

Hugs and thank you again,
I love the Crazy Coleus Mama!

Of course our sleepy cat had to come tumbling down from upstairs to see what was going on... Janne is opening the box with the Coleus Mama.

A short pause in the rain made it possible for us to be outdoors and hastily put the Mama in her pot and plant a few coleus around her! Here, she and I meet for the first time!

The Coleus Mama is happily waving to her creators Janet and Connie!
She has settled in her new home and looks very happy!

-- Thank you again for the marvellous work you've done with her, and the 2 dvds filled with photos/films! You guys are so professional, it is so fun to watch her creation.

In 3 weeks from now she will be presented for our friends and family at the belayed birthday party, more photos will follow then!

Bye for now!!!
Hugs from Alice, Janne and Coleus Mama

Alice, I've added your photos and messages to the end of the slide show on Phanfare. I'm so glad that you love her. I knew you would. I told Connie that you were one wacky gal and that you'd love her uniqueness. You now have your BLUE coleus!

Many many hugs to you both.

Janet & Connie

ps.... I'm glad that Janne likes her also. Love the smiles on your beautiful faces!
