I got my fabo amazing swap box from nmcakemom07
today!! I went out to do few chores, and found the delivery slip in my post box. Then I noticed the postal truck across the street. SO I jumped in the car and waited for her to come out of the condo she was in. She was nice and helped the crazy lady standing in the rain, waving a piece of paper around and gave me my box!
So get a drink or cup of tea and have a sit down...this will take awhile *grin*
This was on the very top of the box and I had to sqqquuuee for a bit. It's HK and my poodle Cosmo all together on this cute fabric!..ok so it's not REAL Ly Cosmo, but it looks enough like him to delight me.
One I opened it up, I was delighted to see a tool holder. I'll probably use it for my chisel tip felt pens.
Then there was a bunch of things wrapped in lovely paper...I forgot to take a picture of everything wrapped up, but I'm using the beautiful mullberry paper as back drops for the photos so y'all can see them. I was carefull to cut the tape and not rip it all to shreds...I was tempted...but I wanted to re use it.
This is my Cactus Pup Bastardo Jr! He's a Tokidokie character, and I love him to pieces. He's crocheted with felt painted details
This is a crocheted vampire squid named Beep Beep. She wrote an adorable story to go with it..
The tale of the Deep Deep
The Deep Deep vampire squidlets were taken from their mother Weep Weep when they were very small to be tested on in Laboratories around the world.
Beep Beep was sent to Los Alamos Labs in New Mexico, she was rescued by a family of Roadrunners when the case she was in fell off the delivery truck. She is very outspoken and very fast.
Meep Meep was on his way to a test site in Bermuda when his plane was lost over the infamous triangle. He is very soft spoken and very logical. He currently resides with his adopted family somewhere over Roswell New Mexico.
Weep Weep cries for her squidlets, she is mostly sad, but when she is reunited with her beloved deep deep, she will cry tears of joy.
EDIT: There was a bit of a mix up. nmcakemom07 has 2 partners, me and Cherry48. And we have just figured out that 2 of the packages got swapped. So I'll be mailing the 2 meant for Cherry48 to her next week. I'm just waiting to hear if she wants me to post the pics, or wait for the suprise
anyway...back to the yummyness
And I mean yummy! Some gummy foods, and HK dipping sticks. The sticks are all ready gone, but I'm going to try and turn the container into some kind of tool kit if I can find a lid to fit it. The other picture is local foods....and I'm really really happy about that. Sopapia mix (which are all ways yummy), roasted green chillies in separate little packages. I LOVE green chilies (my favo Mexican food is chili rellenos, and I love salsa verdes (which I know is tomatillos and not chilies but it's close enough for me)). Then a package of special red chili powder which looks very red and powerfull.
Then I got a huge allotment of Charms! Tons and tons and tons
These are the Sanrio based ones.. Lots of HK (I love the little black one. It has horns and a tail) and I have a soft spot for Little Twin Stars, Kiki and Lala (they were the first Sanrio I ever saw when I was about 5). The little heads are bells!! I love the HK key cap too! She has a little bandaid and a few other scrapes...just like I normally have
. I'll be saving that for when we get our next place (soon we hope *crosses fingers*)
Here is the Tokidokie she sent me. I'm super excited about the Cactus Pup vinyl sticker! I can't decide if I am going to put him on my car, or save him for when we move and put him where I can see him all the time...maybe my sewing machine!! There was also one blind box with Bastardo Jr. and his little skull in side (the one I wanted !! SSQQQUUEEE) then a necklace made from Salamino and it's little hot dog. And since I have Tortellino and it's skully baby, I'm rolling in tokedokiness!!
Then there are these charms and extras. A tiny Skellanimal! She's the little monkey Marcy. She's so cute! The wish fish are a whole pack of them! I've been trying to think of a craft with them all. Uni Poo too! The little dragon is a Winnie the Poo inside..so now I have Dragon Poo too
And this is my new Furrybones!! I almost bought one the last time I saw them (at the Octopus Garden in Richland Wa...very cool place BTW) but talked myself out of it. And this one is the exact one I wanted!! The black and white balls are beads which will be very cool for all kinds of crafting. And last, but definitely not least, A little book with a cute wee seahorse on it,..and yes, you read right..It's made from poo. Not Uni poo, but elephant poo! I have a little bit of this some where, but it's not in a nice book. But it is super fun to use..mostly because of the look on folks face when you tell them what it is
Thanks sooooo much Jill! This has been one of my favo swaps ever
