Vanessa Kightlinger sent the most dangerous of all the Lilah Beans. The "Make Your Own Lilah Bean" is an ingenious idea, but it seems that all the separate components combined during shipping and created a super-bean that crushed the tin and escaped from one corner. This is a metal tin - can you imagine the strength it took to rip the corner open!?
Just because I was not strong enough to open the box, doesn't seem a fair excuse to exclude this entry. Vanessa had posted some pictures of her Lilah Bean on her Flickr page:
Oooo - angry eyes! And the bat might explain the dent to the box?
Isn't this a great idea!? Like a magnetic Mr. Potato Head. What fun. I may take a can opener to that little tin to get at all these cool little pieces - oh, the hair!
In the process of "borrowing" Vanessa's MYOLB images from her Flickr site, I discovered a dirty little secret about her! Vanessa is a Lilah Bean Addict! I found fabulous art devoted to LB - including a mural, no, TWO murals! And, now I know that she is a teacher. Perhaps if we clap loudly and say, "I believe in fairies, ah... Lilah Beans!" She'll become an author on this blog and post some Zentangle projects? Hint, hint?
