I got the coolest TWO pages from Ralph! here is the first one, above. The backgrounds on both are fabulously detailed with alphabet stuff!

And the second one I am doing a close-up of because that section just tickles me pink!

I think my fave part about the first one is his jeans and hat!
I really love them both.  Thank you so much, Ralph! You made my day.

I have the great pleasure of posting AND hitting the THIS ROCKS button at the same time!!  Lookie what I got from xandcraft for my tree theme!

Here are two close-ups of the creatures in the oak tree:

Leaf, owl, spider, acorn, bees, red squirrel,

kitty, woodpecker, butterfly, pig (munching on acorns) shroomie, and worm.
Oh, my faves, it is so hard to pick! The woodpecker is stunning, but the owl has so much character. And I adore the squirrel's furry tail. And the worm is too cool, really well stitched. The spider is awesum, too, I could go on and on. It really totally rocks.  Thank you soooo much, xandcraft.

I am having so much fun opening my packages! I love how each artist has a new idea for Mr Ickybucket... here is Bladeburn's idea.  Look at all the little pupil monsters!  And the funny roll of toilet paper!  This is a great piece, Bladeburn.  Thank you so much!!

This is what I got from Eukarya to illustrate section 3 of my story:
Wow, she is talented. I just loved the desk! and the detail of how some kid in the row in back is reading a comic book.  Great monster, eukarya!  His tie is adorable.  thank you sooo much.

Stupid, Stupid Alphabet
by Meg Oceanna

-----Section 1 (Ralph):

Good morning, you pitiful blockheads.  I am your substitute for today and Ill be teaching you the alphabet.
     Everyone face forward!  Pay no attention to that lady tied to the chair at the back of the room.  Youre here to learn and shes here to, um, count the flies on the windowsill.
     So this alphabet thing starts with the letter A.
     A is for Ask me no questions and well all get along just fine.
     B is for Bunion.
     See?  Whamm!  This is the biggest bunion Ive ever had.
     C is for Crash, which is what a teachers desk does when I put my leg on it like that.
     D is for Dum.  This letter is dum, this alphabet is dum and the whole idea of putting letters together to spell words is dum.
     Hey, why are you putting a b on the end of my word?

-----Section 2 (haroldlovesmaude):
     E is for Egg, but only if its rotten and dripping down the window as the sun shines through from the right angle.  Here, Ill show you.
     Craaaack!  There, isnt that lovely?  It gives just the right ambiance to a classroom full of eager little learners.
     F is for Fun.  ISNT THIS FUN?!
     G is for Giraffe because it always is.  Always.  If you open any alphabet book in the whole world, G is for Giraffe and Im sick of it, do you hear me?  Sick of it!
     H is for Ha, ha, ha.  Poor little Katie here in the front row just dropped her pencil.  Well, ha, ha, ha.
     I is for Ickybucket, which happens to be my last name.  If anyone has anything to say about that, you can SEE ME AFTER CLASS.
     J is for Jiraffe, because it always is.  Always.
     Never mind, then.  Why dont you tell us then, smarty-pants, what J is for.
     Jellybean?  What kind of idiot answer is that?

-----Section 3 (eukarya):

     K is for Kickball and since I am a monster, Ill bet I can kick the ball ten times further than any of you urchins can, so there.
     L is for Letter.  See, each one of these little scribbly things is a letter, although why they invented only twenty-six of them is beyond me.  I mean, why couldnt they just make it an even thirty?
     M is for...
     Um, M is for something.  Ill think of something.  Lets go back to that one later.
     N is for Nothing and O is for Odor and when you put them together they spell NO.
     As in, No, you cant get a drink of water, so put your hand down!
     P is for Pupil.  Not the little black thing in your eye, but the kind that comes in here day after day and sits in a hard chair and wants to learn useless stuff like what the alphabet is.
     Q is for Question and if you want to ask me one, well, thats too bad because this particular substitute teacher is busy right now.

-----Section 4 (bladeburn):

     R is for Ridiculous.  The fact that Im forced to stand here today teaching little buggers like you when I could be stomping in a mud puddle eating moldy potato chips is ridiculous!
     S is for Stick, see?
     And for Stupid.
     Ow.  And Splinter.  Ow!  I hate splinters.  They scare me.  Theyre so little and sharp and they hurt and ....
     No, dont try to get it out!!
     Ow!  Ow!!
     Hey, sniff, You got it out.
     T is for Tissue.  Thanks.

-----Section 5 (Ralph):

     U is for Understand.  Sniff
     I dont understand why monsters always have to be this way. Sniff.  I didnt ask to be born with big hairy bunion feet and a bad attitude.
     What if I want to be different?  What if I want to raise bunny rabbits to give to old lonely people to keep them company?
     V is for Valentine.  Do you know Ive never gotten a single valentine?  Not even one from the phone company that says We love how you choose us for your long distance needs.
     W is for Why.  Why doesnt anyone just come up to me and say, Hello Mr. Ickybucket, I know youre a monster, but I can see that deep down youre really nice, so lets go bowling?
     X must be for something.  I just dont know anymore.  Sniff.  I need a hug.
     Y is for You.  You all have been so nice to me.  It feels wonderful to have someone who actually cares.  Sniff.  Go untie that teacher, would you please?
     Well, I guess Z is for Zebra.  Ive always kind of wondered if each zebra has their own special stripey pattern.
     They do?
     Hey, Miss Angela, could I please stay for class?
     Hi.  My name is Mr. Ickybucket.  Whats yours?

Here are the goodies I got from AMC-  a neat little embroidered bag with a pentagram on it, and 5 Supernatural magnets inside. I have no idea how she knew I needed fridge magnets - that must have taken some serious stalking or else she is supernatural herself.  They are great!  Thanks, AMC-!  ps check out the little skulls on the ribbons!
