So, kids, get your jealousy hats on, and then imagine my camera doesn't suck.
For example: The first piece in the package was the one I sorta requested and AM SO EXCITED ABOUT! The picture doesn't do it justice at all... This wonderful 12"x18" acrylic is the first of much awesome brought to you by zzdia:
Next, there was a series of brightly wrapped gift packages. Felt like Christmas on Gallifrey! I unwrapped the cross stitch panels next... and am cutting matte at work tonight to frame them as a series!
This next one was an amazing surprise. Kinda floppy and folded up, a pillow cover, i wondered? Perhaps a fabric coaster?
Oh no. Way more awesome. Art to wear!
Also it was a clear sign that my partner did her research- She steampunked it up for me! And it is SO comfy.
1) I found the bonus gift next- Mangoes from the Philippines! (I LOVE mangoes, btw. Thank you!)
2) Then I came across the tiny Tardis sewn plushie- I'm still not even sure how you made it, but it rocks! (its on the mantel next to our David action figure)
3) Dr. Who color inspired bracelet also featured in this picture. Its perfect- I wore it to work last night!
Group shot to save on image fatness:
But the piece that tips it over the edge......
Early in the talks she mentioned making journals, but i'm thinkin' paper-stapled-neato-cover-kind-of-object... Not this wonderful thing! Leather bound with a lining that could totally could have been John Smith's jacket, tea stainey beautiful textured paper- It could only be a Journal of Impossible Things.
I didn't take pics of all the artist's renderings inside (again, in an effort to save bandwidth
) but there are several beautiful well-styled and well thought out pages, along with space for me to add my impossibilities:
Inside journal: So, now are you jealous?
Thank you partner, for everything. It is all wonderful and craftastic!
