I received this morning from thenorm02, and after sorting through the 257 pictures that I took of my FANTASTIC package, I am posting! (I cut down as much as I could, but there are still an even baker's dozen of pictures in here. Consider yourself forewarned.)
First, my absolutely amazing stocking! I like a lot of random things, and Norma did so well in capturing some of my loves! Dumbledore, Frankenfurter, rainbows, St. Patrick's Day, sparkles, Santa and skulls!
I love it so much! Not pictured, skiing frog fabric lining! TOTALLY AWESOME! Next, in no particular order, are my stuffers. I ripped into the presents so fast that I couldn't tell you which I opened first or last!
Norma made me "Meg's Personal Puzzle" with a bunch of my favorite things! It was a little bit of a challenge to put it together, because none of the pictures went past the single piece, but I eventually got it all together! My favorite piece might be...no, I can't pick one favorite!
ZOMBIE BEAR!!!! Right off my Wist; he is just TOTALLY AWESOME! He is so soft and cuddly, but his arm and guts come out! I absolutely love his puffy snout, and the big scar down his back!
Next, to keep my head warm in this brisk Midwestern winter, is a FRANKENSTEIN HAT!
It's a little snug, but there is no way that I'm going to let anyone but me wear it!
Inspired by a button from my Wist, a "Spock is Sexy" Tee! Because, let's face it...he IS! (Leonard Nimoy more than Zachary Quinto.
Combining my love of Christmas and Halloween, my partner made me...A ZOMBIE SANTA! I love every detail of it so much! She even painted the embroidery hoop to match with red glitter!
Okay, I think that I lied. I do in fact remember what the first thing I opened was because I was expecting it. I asked Norma for a Snuggie, because I can't craft when I'm huddled under my comforter. So, FIRST...I opened my Snuggie. I saw green, and was like "Yay! Green! I love green!" But then, I opened it up and saw...
SNAKESNAKESNAKE!!! IT'S A SLYTHERIN SNUGGIE!!!!
Like I already told my partner: I'm gonna make sure that I turn the air conditioning on freezing in the summer so that I can use it all year round! Sorry no action shot at the moment, but it is HUGE!
My partner also sent me a gigantic stack of cotton fabric, because I've been trying my best to build up my stash!
She also sent me so many storebought items that I was just overwhelmed! I asked for a lint brush, and was granted one, along with a whole lot of sweeties and little erasers! I also got a tiny little Santa cross-stitch pattern, and some lotion! Finally, on my wish list, I put the color numbers of every color of floss that I needed for a pattern that I have been wanting to do for a while, and thenorm02 bought me not only EVERY SINGLE ONE, but fabric too!
I had a fantastic time in this swap, and there is so much that I will treasure forever! Thank you so much Norma!
