So, remember how I said I was going to wait until tomorrow to open my package? Yeah, that idea went straight out the door when I saw the big envalope it was in
Let me just say right here... I got ROYALLY SPOILED
so, here's a warning. LONG POST and pic obese (kinda went overboard, that's how chuffed I am!).
The pics aren't *that* great because it's dreary outside, and I didn't want to risk having my goodies wrecked by the dampness that's out there. So all pics were taken on my hope chest by the south (? I have no clue, actually) facing window in my living room.
Starting bottom left: booga bag in wonderful earthy tones (and honestly, I think the amount of green in it is perfect!) and is awesome and just what I need to take my knitting projects with me to work when I start on the second.
An awesome dpn holder which matches the bag well (in my opinion) and will fit perfectly in the bag. There will be a close up of the roll in just a sec.
Then comes some little packets of insta-smoothie goodness
Which, when I have frozen some ice, and have some milk in the house, I will be trying
Never seen these before!
And lastly in this pic is some SUPER smooshy angora goat mohair! Which I have just been smooshing and rubbing since I got it. It's even right on my keyboard so it's not far from smooshing distance.
DPN case inside:
DPN case outside:
The thing I love about this case is that you could either roll or fold it. The elastic is just the right amount of stretchiness. Also. I love the button. It's *almost* a maple leaf (therefore it is to me), and being a proud Canadian... it makes me smile all over
Some freaking awesome cards! They are of dragonflies and sushi. Because those are two of my favourite things
There's a set of ten (two of each card) I may have to save the one with the pink background and frame it...
This pic gives a bit of a hint at the awesome circ holder I was sent. Which, by the way, is totally reversable. Envy me. You know you want to
There's also the S&B Knit happens journal. Which I have been coveting, but haven't had the money to buy. So. Freaking. Awesome. It will also be stored in the booga bag of awesomeness.
Circ Holder Front:
I love the blue and yellow. I don't think I'll be hanging this on a coat hanger like it suggests... I think this beautiful holder is going to get some sort of dowel thing and hung on my wall. I can't even imagine having the patience to get the middle motif so perfectly centred
Circ Holder back:
The back of the circ holder is also awesome
I love the detail of the centre panel motif being used in the hanger tabs. And the yellow is so cheery!
So. Last pic. Definitely my most most most favourite item out of the whole bunch. I immediately snatched him up and loved him to exhaustion. He's currently resting in my bed getting his strength back.
It is totally a capsule. An anthromorphosized capsule. Look at his cheery grin, and bright eyes. How could a girl NOT love him?? I have to look up which capsules have this colouring, and then he will be named after the chemical name
BlooCanoe... you are such a freaking awesome swap partner. I can't remotely get over how awesome the whole package is
I will be playing with everything all day
Thank you so so so so so so much!!
