Ha! People left my house early so I'm posting pictures now.
Summer got right inside my head. She must have. That's the only way I can describe how awesome her taste is.
Summer made me a TARDIS stocking! I laughed out loud for a reason that you all will understand in a couple days. I really like the applique she did, and the inside is all sparkly and looks spacey. It's a really cool looking stocking!
Inside I found a really cute ornament with my initial on it. I gave it a primo location on my tree at my eye level.
Tall, Dark and Bearded thinks it's "super adorable"
I also found two altered tea towels. The fabric she chose is really funky.
Here's a close up of the fabric she added. At first glance I thought it was ribbon, but this fabric is even better!
She also included a Harry Potter mug. I think it's baked Sharpie ink? As well as two flavoured coffees. I'm saving these for Christmas morning.
Here's the other side. I am not this kind of artistic, so I am wowed by the patience and skill it would take (compared to me) to complete something like this.
No stocking is complete without socks. I swear, now that I'm an "adult" I look forward most to socks in my stocking. "Sweet! I don't have to buy socks!"
Also, a pair of nice, warm gloves. I'm sticking these in my coat pocket first thing tomorrow. Though apparently we will reach +7C this week... in December!! Unheard of!
She also sent a couple packages of lime flavoured peanuts. I'm going to try these for a snack at work this week. I might have to save a pack for my dad. He loooooves nuts.
Hidden in the bottom of the box was a Doctor Who comic book! So cool.
Summer also made a tree of life necklace. I like this, it's not too clunky, but will still be quite eye catching. I even have a pair of earrings I'd like to pair this with. (see! she's in my head!)
I now have a buttload of tags. I must admit, right after I took the pictures, I squirrelled these away in my gift wrap holder so that I don't lose them. I still have some gifts to wrap, so I want to make sure I've put them where I'll be able to find and use them before next year!
Have some close ups. They are so adorable!! I love that the gingerbread men are unique, and I love that I could use each set for different types of people.
Tall Dark and Bearded refers to this as "The Book of Terrible Things"
I, however, am over the moon to have my own Spoilers book.
I love the detail that went into this.
Inside, she added a new inside thingy... with Gallifreyan writing background!
Of course, I don't read Gallifreyan. So I'm going to have to decipher this sometime this weekend.
Summer sent me a message partway through the crafting period asking if the fact that I'd been run over by a cyclist was something I would later laugh about.
I told her that I was already laughing about it. When something so unlikely happens, what can you do but laugh?
She has immortalised my incident in a tasteful way. I will admit that I was worried that I would get a watercolour or something displaying my misfortune, but this t-shirt means that if someone asks about it, I can say "Do I have a story for you!"
Thank you so much, Summer! I love it all and hope that you enjoy your stocking!
