Yes! His secret pouch is awesome! Smiley

Love all the blue!  So many people I want to swap with now, are people taking reservations for next round? Wink

I've been away for, what, a week, and so many amazing projects!  Good news, I may actually finish a research project!  Bad news, it has to be done by Saturday, come what may, so... I'm just popping in to post the time-dependant battle I have left (the rest were all swap items and I can't even think which have been received and what hasn't, so.

Prompt:  September Battle - Board Games
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points:  None
Project Name: Pictionary-esque doodles turned art!
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: So, maybe a stretch, but I love games like pictionary, even though some of my friends draw like over-caffeinated gibbons using their off hands.  I'm not a great artist, but some of the scribbles I've seen explained as the simplest things are truly mind-blowing.  Between my love of scribbles and the fact that I recently found Mary Doodles on YouTube (she has a great series called "What Will I Draw?" I decided to take on the scribble-come-picture challenge.  This one is my favorite, if only because I managed to avoid the... er... obvious?
Project Picture:

Original Scribble:



Aaaaaand, the drawing!

I received from artsycandice yesterday, sorry I'm just now getting around to posting pictures (two nights out late, we have a show on Saturday we are ill-prepared for so practice practice!  Plus I've had a migraine all day so sorry if I'm not as upbeat as usual... stupid head).  

First thing I pulled out of the box...



FOXY!!!  He's so cute and loveable and hugable... and he goes really well with my couch (you know, next to good lighting - which this is not, but see: not being home from 7am to 9pm! - finding a cleanish spot in my house to take pictures is the hardest part...).

And his butt:



He's got such a cute tail!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

And then... I asked for a hoop, anything, but what I got!



It's a little more vivid in the daylight, sorry about the lighting, it is truly GORGEOUS!  The amount of work!  It's amazing!  Here, have a few close-ups!





And then some extras!  A magazine (more to crochet!) a feather pouch and wall hanging, some little notebooks (can you ever have too many?) and a feather card!  I feel completely spoiled (I mean, that embroidery alone!).



Thank you, artsycandice!  I'm so glad I was just brave and asked you!  Cheesy

I"m glad you like him!  I did get rather attached, I worried he was too cartoon-y and... well.  You know how it is when you work on something forever and it's not what you thought it would be but you have a soft spot for it anyway.

If he's hugged and loved and has a good home, though, I'm happy!  And Blue seems like a perfectly good name!

Don't have anxiety, I'm sure what you sent was absolutely amazing!  Smiley

(also, I need to go back through this gallery because I just started to skim it and I'm glad I didn't look before I sent... I know it's all different levels of swapping but... wow... these packages...  amazing!)

I received today!  Sorry it took me so long to get home and post pictures... late night at work.  Bah.  But this package made it all better!  Seriously!

So... first, I was worried, because the package clearly had "fragile" written on it in several places but was completely crunched on one side.  It always seems to be the stuff you mark as "fragile" that gets abused...  *sigh*  But good news!  Nothing was broken, which is amazing and a testament to calixita's mad packing skills because.....



Dr Who glasses!  They're exactly the style we like and use (pub style) and are perfect!  It is soooooo hard to get a good picture of the detail, but it's a semi-outline of the Tardis.  That kinda... hint?  I don't know what you call it, but it's cool and looks subtle but unmistakable.  Here's the best I could do on the detail, which isn't much, but...



These are going to get a LOT of use.  My hubby even said "these are really nice glasses!"  So, hey, that's pretty amazing!  (He's one of few compliments)

Next, I unwrapped...



I always put Rosemary and Thyme because I LOVE the show, but I never really expected anyone to craft from it, because... well, I dunno what you'd craft!  But that just goes to show you I'm not as imaginative as calixita (I did want to do something amazing and unexpected, I just... couldn't think of anything this grand!), because it's not just a cover, no....

...the inside encompasses both flowers and DEATH!





(Which, if you didn't know, is the theme of the show, gardeners who get caught up in an improbable number of murders!  I just adore the characters, wish they'd made more episodes...)

Then, onward!  To...



Coasters!  I desperately needed some, and I'm glad she took the hint. Smiley The painting on these is amazing and soooooo cool!  All marbley and spacey and awesome!  One is already in use.  Cheesy

And then...  AND THEN!



A RED NEEDLEBOOK!

Which looks awesome, and then you realize, as I told my husband, that's alllllllll beads.

Him: Well, the eyes are.  The hair isn't.
Me: Um, yeah, no, that whole front is beads.
Him (looking closer): I guess it is.  Wow, that is a TON of work.

YES IT WAS AND IT'S MINE ALL MINE! 

Ahem.  Yeah, it's cool... *whistles innocently*

And to top it off, not the biggest, but... it has a soft spot in my heart...



Plan 9 from Outer Space magnet!  One of the best of the worst movies ever!

Thank you soooooo much calixita!  I just hope you like anything in your package as much as I like my stuff, you were an AWESOME partner!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

In fact, I did send you both a similar, yet different item, and I randomly chucked then into the boxes.

That's funny because I did the same thing. Grin

Hahaha, apparently we made a really good trio!  Cheesy

Mel and Tom had fun at the justice center open house last week, I think that's probably their last adventure... now that my IYP swap stuff is done, it's time to get to work on the scrapbook! That's my main priority next week.

Here they are at the crime scene at the Three Bears house... we also attended the trial of Gold Dee Locks (she was found guilty, but sentenced to community service).

Was crafting until far to late last night, but it's all boxed up and ready to ship off on my way home from work. I'm... super nervous about my package not being good enough, but at least in this swap I can say my partners knew what they were getting into! They'll know just to say "no" next time!  Cheesy

lol, stop that! Cheesy You're a riot. Just for that, I might throw in something more. Muahahaha!

You have no idea how close I came to adding return postage so you could ship it back if you hated it... O.o  Because for all I worry about it not being good, I've developed an attachment!  Weird, I know!

I'm only really worried about the one thing, the rest... I think are okay. Smiley I did notice how similar you and P_E_S_T seem to be in taste, I probably could have swapped who I sent what to... Cheesy In fact, I did send you both a similar, yet different item, and I randomly chucked then into the boxes. I'm not actually sure who ended up with which one!  Smiley
