I received my angel package today from...................THE AMAZING THANATE!!! And everything is fabulous Lets get to the pics...crafty stuff first
My new sleep mask. Is it not the coolest ever?? I LOVE the eyes. They should definitely look out for me while I sleep.
Check out me new Lucky Monster Foot USB!!!!!! SSSQQQQQUUUEEE! Ssssqqqquueeee, ssqueee *cough*, I mean I just think this is so cool.
A bunch of random monster eyes. These are just the right size to throw at people to get there attention. They will make nice pin cussions too
Then thanate combined my love of cryptozooligy and ATC's and made me a set of 7 suereal animals...
*The first card is for the Amoeboid Zingat-Ularians...also featuring Zaphod Beeblebrox.
*The second is the Leonine Gastropod, and it says,"A cousin of the famous sphinx, the Leonine Gastropod has the head of a man, the main of a lion, and the body of a snail. It can be found on rocky hillsides in Greece, but few ever look for it."
*Third is the Lint Bat and it says, "A violent cousin of the dust bunny, the Lint Bat feeds on electricity sucked out of cords that it punctures with it's needle sharp teeth. Please don not try to pick one up.
*Fourth is the the elusive Twin-Tailed Merynx. The card says, "According to the guidebooks of the Xargothy plains, the twin-tailed merynx is a shy beast that can only be lured to a campfire by the smell of burnt pop-corn. Myths and urban legends of the merynx abound, both among tourists and locals, but no documented proof of their existence has ever been recorded.
*Fifth is the Trioptic Octopode. This card reads, "When the seas boil & the Midgard Serpent fights the Leviathan, the Trioptic Octopode will be ready with a handful of popcorn shrimp to munch on.
*Sixth is the Alligator Hydra. The card explains, "The Aligator Hydra lives deep in the mangrove swamps of central Florida. Experts believe that this is what it looks like, but it has probably eaten everyone who knows for sure.
*and , finally, the seventh card, the Punk Spyder. "The Punk Spyder is not a real arachnid, but it beats up insects in dark alleyways and picks up black widows in bars with stories about how it lost it's eighth leg."
And now the extras! thanate said she got to add more things to the box because she could send more since she had to send UPS since Canada post was on strike at the time. She said she added things from the go to thrift box. I wish I lived near her, cause if this was stuff to go away, I can't imagine how amazing her house is . So anyway, here come even more photos..
rhinestone skulls, a pattern book for dolls (Zoey loved this), the cool post card she sent me a note on, and the little things in the baggy are parts for a pink space ship. Each bag has a few parts for a bigger ship, and she sent me all the parts. I have the perfect place for a pink space ship. I have no idea how you knew I needed THAT *grin*.
a cthulu calendar!! Out of date, but that is no issue. Not only are there totally charming chibi cthulus on every page, there are interesting things about each day. I will definitely read it through before I cut it up. The yellow is a little note pad. She clearly did a ton of research on me because it says "I love it when I am right. Which is ALWAYS." I don't know how thanate found out I am always right....sometimes it seems like I'm the only one that understands that! The things above the note pad are cute little punch out animals that one can put together. The tiger was fun to make, and it is sticking together pretty good so far. I made that one first cause it's the year of the tiger.
A few things in bubbles. I love coin bubble machines..partly due to the cute little bubbles. These are cool cause they are totally round. I love the little sea pets in them. The one with the handle is a purse and pet piranha for my doll Zoey. It's perfect for her.
a cute butterfly kite. It's really sparkly on the other side. I'm going to try and fly it off the balcony next time we have some wind.
All this cool tiny stuff was in a tic tak box. The lucky stars are sooo tiny! I could never fold that small. I love the skull bead. I don't have one like that. Beside the skull are 2 tiny white beads with one brown spot each. They are perfect tiny EYES!!. I also love the velum skulls and bones. Definitely will be used.
Hang in there, only a few more pics to go...
Then she sent me this wicked hard cover book called Play With Your Food. I have been meaning to get it from the library to have a look (I've seen this guys work all over the place) and now I don't have to . The other 3 pics are just some of my favos from the book.
And lastly, she sent me something I have wanted for a long time. The Avenging Unicorn play set from Archie McPhee's. I had the Good vs. Evil Unicorn play set, so now each of my corns has a person to skewer
So Thank You so much thanate, for turning this swap compleatly around for me with your ohh so fun package!!!
