Who knew being sick would turn out so well? LoL I was home sick today and was able to drag myself out of bed long enough to go down to the post office and pick up my package from nullgal.
This post is fat and happy. Please excuse the quality of my pics, I had to sell my camera recently and so I'm using my camera phone.
It was a compact package...deceptively so.
After ripping the packaging off I found a very cute sewing box with a very red top (you can't tell how red it is from the pics) that looks like the top of a tomato or strawberry. The actual box part is wonderfully faded blue with green vines and red flowers. This is very cool because I'm trying to learn how to sew...better. I know the basics but want to get a sewing machine and learn how to use it.
The whimsies laid out in all their glory.
I couldn't possibly pick out ONE or even TWO favorites. The big pics are some of my MANY favorites.
...a small dog figurine, a robot with guns blazing, a running football player and a skull that looks like it should fit on the end of a pencil.
A lego gerbil (or hamster?), a lego guy, a very small All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) Walkers from Star Wars and another robot. No guns on this one.
A very small fighter jet, what looks like a miniature Monopoly car and two microchip bugs. (Very cute!)
A small bag stenciled with "Free Hugs" on it. I know nullgal does some stenciling...did you do this one?
An eraser that looks like a 'Delete' key, a medal for music, a miniature elephant and a very cool origami dollar bill that looks like a man's shirt.
A *very* tiny pyramid die, a small rifle, a small plastic sword, a snake ring and a drove of pigs.
You can click the below thumbnails for a better look at my goodies, but they range from buttons with funny sayings, actual buttons, hair clips, embroidery needles (I'm trying out embroidery too!), lace, embroidery thread, an embroidery pattern (which, eerily, I was looking at this exact pattern in JoAnn's over the weekend), denim cuff with stars, strawberries, a butterfly wall hook, an owl keychain, other various little dewdaws and probably another favorite that I couldn't get a good picture of: a restroom token from Indianapolis, Indiana.
I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to nullgal. I loved it all! Thanks for making my first swap awesome. I can only hope you like what I send (when I finally can send it) as much as I like what you sent to me. I think what I like most about what you sent was that it was full of duality. The duality of the peace buttons along side the gun toting robot, and the fact that you fit in my interests along side yours. Thanks. Teaser for nullgal:
