WOW. I definitely came home from class today to find the most *amazing* package waiting on my desk. (Kindly rescued from the snow by my roommates)

Wide shot of (almost) everything in the parcel, with corner of my neuroanatomy textbook for scale. Wink I absolutely love the t-shirt (those are the characters from the Blue Sun logo, along with the stencil she used to make it, so I can. . .adorn everything else I own!) The white thing is a beautiful, *beautiful* canvas notebook cover, with "Serenity" in Japanese and Korean. The inside of the notebook it came with also has quotes written on random pages. So thoughtful! And, I almost forgot, roughly 1/3 of a Tall Card deck, which I plan to cut out and use as bookmarks.

But wait! You'd think that'd be it, but then she also made me. . .this wonderful bag! It's so roomy, and well-made, I'm so intimidated by the mad sewing-and-crocheting skills this girl has.


so happy it got there still in it's original packaging... the post has eaten some packages over the holidays.
I have a 'thing' for bags, especially big booky ones, so I had to include one of those.

and i learned two things this swap - never assume your mad crocheting skills can whip off a firefly glyph in one go - took a couple tries to get it to recognizable
and never assume your printer will agree with the cardstock you bought and then leave the printing till the VERY last minute...

I got my package from ?? yesterday - no name included. It came all the way from the netherlands!! and was so worth the wait.
Included was a set of hand decorated 'doominoes' in a wooden  box with Gir decoupaged on the lid.
Also in my great box- both decorated with hndpainting, a teapot labeled "Girs tea of doom" and a small flat rimmed bowl decorated with a bitten cookie in the bowl and "Zims cookiez of doom on the rim.
I will post pics once i figure out how....
till then you can go here to see... http://www.piczo.com/fibergoddess?g=10381484&cr=2

thanks you so much, the teenage zimmers in the house have had tea of doom several times....
