hullo, hullo, hullo! gosh i've been so horrible this swap about staying in touch! i'm soooo sorry to my boys' partners for not posting sooner! the boys have been away for a couple weeks, and the feller and i have been house hunting, and we got engaged! sooo.... yeah, i haven't been on craftster at all the past couple weeks! so sorry for falling out of touch! we received two awesome packages!

nicholas received first, from emma (mom2em)

he received a pillowcase, a colored batman picture, a felt batman mask, a scavenger hunt booklet, a homemade legoland boardgame,and a starwars angrybirds extra!

christopher received from bailey (Helena Puck) last week, but he just got home last night and opened his package this morning!

he received toad (the character), kirby, and a snake made from perler beads, a harry potter wand, a homemade batman snowglobe, a bag of little toys, avengers posters, avengers action figures, a decorated "c" to hang on his wall, and a lovely card! oh, and a necklace stamped with a "c"!

both of the boys really enjoyed their packages very much! thanks so much, bailey and emma!

wow! so i guess i get to be first to post a pic! may i present to you.... Fridamaid!! susanab combined two of the things on my list, frida kahlo and mermaids, into one! what's funny is that when i pulled her out of the envelope i said out loud to myself- "FridaMaid!!!" and then i susanab's letter and she called her the same thing! anyways, here she is going for a swim in my uncut grass in the back yard... =)

isn't she precious? i love her little earrings and the little flower bead in her hair and colored detail stitching on her shawl and if you look she has little shell bead embellishments around her waist!

the patch on her tail reads "Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?" and the tail has a light coat of what? maybe polyurethane? to make it shiny and a little bit stiff.

plus susanab must have stalked me and discovered i have kind of a problem with buttons. some folks might call it an addiction. i prefer to think of it as a hobby. a rather obsessive and occasionally slightly expensive hobby.... lol anyways she also included two packs of super cute sea-themed buttons.

aaand i just realized i failed to get a picture of it, but she also included a little prepackaged travel sewing kit which will definitely come in handy! it is totally cute, in a little needle folder printed to look like a suitcase.

thanks so much for everything, susanab! i love my fridamaid and all my goodies! =)

downtownmonsters - yours is aaalmost finished. got two little wee bits i've got to finish painting and glue on... and perfection was achieved when i discovered the perfect accessory for yours in my whimsy stash.

goatgoddess; i'm in love with your "textures" board on pinterest. i am inspired. i'm also pushing the boundaries a bit of what we're supposed to be doing here. but i hope you like what i did for you. it makes me happy.  Grin and because i am cruel, and terrible, i will post this:

that is your teaser.

this one's a bit of a change from my usual gals. usually they're day of the dead- themed, but this lady informed me she's not dead - she's crafty!!

and here's a couple of her before her makeover....

i am a horrible horrible person who takes waaaaay too long to get shiz done! these photos were just quick in a terrible sighting situation, but they were the best we could do... they really don't do my awesome new lootz justice but i wanted to share with everyone before i had to take off out of town for the weekend again!

okay, so the first thing i found when i opened up the MASSIVE package i'd received from thisbirdisabsurd is this totally awesome card.

this is NOT A PRINT. this is a pen drawing. it looks like the real thing. it is awesome. i am going to frame it and hang it on my wall. =)

then i got the cutestest leetle handpainted box. sheeck it out!

it says "L is for Leo who swallowed some tacks". i love eet!

and for the main event! i wish these photos could convey to you how awesome this guy is. because he is TOTALLY AMAZEBALLS!!

and he's HUGE! like, just a hair under two feel tall WITHOUT his umbrella! his head, hands, and feet are made of sculpey, i think. his body is stuffed, and his legs are cloth wrapped wire. i'm not sure how she made the umbrella - it's a coarse cheesecloth type fabric that has been stiffened somehow. i love love love love him, and i have a built-in niche in the hallway where i think he will be peeeerfect. hmmm..... now i'm gonna have to get somebody to make me some gashlycrumb tinies.. *ahem*...

thanks sooo much thisbirdisabsurd, i can't tell you how much i LURVE my goodies - i'm seriously soooo stoked over everything!! i just finished my main item for you the night before last - i hope you love as much as i love what i got! i've gotta finish up one other little project for you (probably early next week) and i will be able to send!
