And now, I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of what I received!  Cheesy Embarrassed

"I Am Beautiful" picture frame, yellow crayon-shaped comb and mirror set, pendant, "I [heart] ME" and "Pretty me" keychains/pendants.
Awesome purple sparkly travel-size hairbrush not pictured, since it went pretty much directly into my travel bag. I loooove it, though!

My new favorite T-shirt! "SMALL BUT FIESTY". It's perfect. Thank you KraftyKT!

And a couple of pictures of what I sent to KraftyKT:

Most of what I sent: A torso-shaped bath fizz that I bought, a hand-painted trinket box, a belt ("A waist is a terrible thing to mind"), and two knitted headbands.

The inside of the box: "A face without freckles is like / a night without stars."

A few Shrinky-Dink charms I made, "KT Krafty" "lovely" "beautiful" "radiant" and "If the definition of beauty gets any thniner, no one will fit." (Quarter for size comparison.)

 Cheesy Hooraaaaay! I got my angel package from Knit_core today! Everything ROCKS!

First off, it came with a hilarious and appropriate card. The front has a man and a woman holding hands in front of a Christmas tree.
MAN: I can't imagine spending Christmas without you, darling.
WOMAN: You'll never have to, dear.
(inside) I accidently hot-glued our hands together while crafting those do-it-yourself decorations.

I got the purple cabled newsboy hat that I've been wanting since I first saw the pattern, and which I put on immediately. Grin

I also got a knitted cuff (Perdita from Knitty) that fits me perfectly, and is even prettier in person than in the picture on my wists!

And the buttons on it are awesome!

I also got two chocolate bars; Holiday Hell ("...take the 'ho' out of holiday and the vacate back into vacation with 3.5 oz (100g) of all natural premium milk chocolate."), and Kahlua and Cream. Both of them smell heavenly, and taste even better!

And, because I am so obviously a dork:

The Golden Snitch! XD I seriously squealed when I saw this! Both of the yarns are metallic and shimmery, and the wings are just stiff enough that I can position them and they'll stay!

I'm planning to make myself a Hufflepuff Seeker costume, and this'll definitely come with me for it. (Here I am with my WIP robe, having just caught the Snitch and won the match, obvz.)  Cheesy
Pardon my weird expression. I don't photograph well.

FrogPuddle, you got AWESOME stuff!

And now, for your viewing pleasure, (and so naelany will stop bugging me <3,) THE ORNAMENTS!

I was really excited to see today's ornament, because it was behind Luna Lovegood - and it was exactly what I hoped it would be!

The Quibbler!

These ones are the first seven ornaments I got.

The "blueberry cheesecake" jellybean, with a US quarter for comparison.


The Basilisk fang, which is simply awesome

Scabbers! <3! I love his little whiskers!

Alright! Picture time!

Unfortunately, this is the clearest picture we managed to get of the two of us. I'm in a really weird position, because I'm the one holding the camera, lol.

The scarf I'm wearing, as well as the radish earrings, are made by SidekickFancy. The scarf is INCREDIBLY soft, and really, really long. When it's wrapped around my neck once, the ends still come down to my knees. <3

I've been wanting radish earrings for such a long time.  Grin

I also got a snowglobe, with a fabulous picture of Ginny, and a box made out of a book, painted with the hufflepuff colors and topped with my initials!

And what's even better?

The book was stuffed with candy! A box of Bertie Bott's Beans, a bag of Drooble's Best Blowing Gum, two sticks of rock candy, and tons of taffy!
Currently, there is one piece each of the taffy and rock candy left, and I had two pieces of gum last night, which (as Fancy warned me it would) turned my entire mouth blue.  Cheesy I haven't tried the jellybeans yet, because I'm scared of the yucky flavors.  Embarrassed

I also got a little yellow telescope-type-thing, a shrinky-dink snitch, which I'll either use as a keychain or a zipper pull, one of Hagrid's rock cakes (it's really a funny-looking super-bounce ball), a big glow-in-the-dark star, and a Shrinky-dink version of my Hufflepuff Seeker icon! <3 <3 <3
I was playing around with the telescope and star the other night, pretending I was in Astronomy class.

Fancy made me the most fabulous shirt:

"Badgers Are Friends, Not Food"  Cheesy It combines Harry Potter, Finding Nemo, and vegetarianism, lol. How could I not love it?!

And, most amazing of all, the advent calendar:

(Yeah, um, ignore the dishes in the foreground. The restaurant's tables aren't very big. The poor waitress had to keep trying to find space to put our orders down among all the swap stuff.)
She made me a wooden advent calendar with a painting of Hagrid, Ginny and Harry (holding hands), Luna, Dumbledore, Ron and Hermione (also holding hands), and Fred and George, standing in front of a Christmas tree, with lots of floating candles around.
And inside each of the compartments is a little ornament! (Or at least, I think they're all ornaments. I've been a good girl, and I've only opened the ones I should, lol.)

So far, I've gotten:
Dec 1 - the Sorting Hat
Dec 2 - Aragog (/an acromantula)
Dec 3 - a crown with a "W" (because Weasley Is Our King!)
Dec 4 - a blue Bertie Bott's Bean (I've decided it's blueberry cheescake flavored.)
I bought myself a little fake tree yesterday so that I could put them up.

Pictures of the ornaments will come later, as I get more.
Thank you, Fancy!

There it is.
Oh, and Hookin, don't worry - I'm still working on your package!

I received from Cinderly today! This package was so amazing. According to her letter, she went by the theme of Pirates and Faeries - an EXCELLENT choice, I must say.  Grin

First off, my Pirate booty:

-A MARVELLOUS patchwork pouch! The picture doesn't do it justice. The fabrics are so fabulous and soft, and oh! It's wonderful! And it's long, so I don't have to worry about whether my things will fit in it or not.
-A piratey-red shirt that says "I am disinclined to acquiesce to your request."  Cheesy
-Several bags of cookies, with recipes, so I can check the ingredients, and make more for myself later! Some of them are chocolate chip, and others are sugar cookies frosted to look like pirate flags! I had to fight my family off - almost literally! - to keep them from devouring these.

She also sent me an AWESOME shirt with a silvery silhouette of Tinkerbell! (With whom I am obsessed.) Seriously, this is my fifth Tink shirt, sixth if you count my pajama top. Embarrassed

And I think it's my favorite of all the ones I have.

Inside my pirate pouch was a suprise!

Beautiful handmade notecards, all with Shakespeare quotes! (Properly notated, too! *swoon*) And, not pictured, envelopes to go with them. I'm not sure if I could ever send these, though, I want to keep them!

It seems like Cinderly anticipated that, though, because she also sent me an amazing card-crafting kit!

The picture came out blurry, but it includes:
-A 'collage pad' of handmade paper in blues and purples
-A great homemade instructional guide: 'Quote Cards 101' and 'Inspiration Gallery'. VERY well illustrated - I will be getting a LOT of use out of this!
-A stack of textured, self-adhesive cardstock in neutral colors
-A set of blank white notecards with envelopes
-A pack of "Thinking of You" rub-on phrases and icons
-An adhesive roller! (I'm getting giddy just thinking of how much easier gluing paper will be with this!)
-Two Tinkerbell ballpoint pens <3
-and LOTS of Tinkerbell stickers!
And I had to include, at the top, Cinderly's letter with Swap Anxiety Girl at the bottom!  Cheesy

And last but not least: The Magic Yarn Blob! Cheesy

If I understand correctly, it's not one, but THREE different yarns! And Cinderly's letter says that theme-related card supplies are wrapped up inside it. (I think I see a glue-stick in there.) I need to find a pattern to use this on and get to work immediately! I want my buried treasure!  Cheesy

Thank you SO much Cinderly!

Oh, this'll be great. I started cleaning my room (and took pictures) but I've kind of stalled half-way through. My strategy is:
1) put things I want that don't have a home into buckets
2) move buckets out of the way
3) move furniture
4) find homes for the stuff in buckets.

(I've mostly done step 1.)

Look, look, the buckets are gone! Step 2!

And... they're on my bed. Uhm, Undo step 2 if I want to sleep.

I received gorgeous postcards from Bhean a while ago:

I recognize some of the faerie images from Brian Froud's work - how did you know he was my favorite? And I never knew before that I like mermaids so much.
I didn't take a picture of it, but each postcard has "Do Not Despair" stamped on the back.

And I received lots of supplies from liebschien this morning!

So much stuff! Lots of great purple fake flowers, a glue gun and glue sticks, four pair of knitting needles (which I'm thrilled about), and beautiful beaded stich markers.

I love the beads she chose for these, with the different purples and the couple of greens. (Green and purple is my favorite color combination.) I think the one in the center, with the leaf-like green bead, is my favorite.

Thank you both so much!

I'm really glad you like your stuff, Babsy! It's probably good that you didn't tell my about wanting a time turner - this way I get to feel really smart for thinking of it. Cheesy
I love the toes picture.

And here's what I got!

Everything - blanket, box, owl card, lightswitch plate, and playing cards.
You wuold not belive how soft that blanket is.
I love that the badger on the lightswitch plate is from this flash movie. When I pulled it out, I immediately showed it to my brother and started going "ah-badger-badger-badger-badger-badger-badger-badger!"
Unfortunately, one of the rhinestones on the box fell off shortly after I got it, but I got a glue gun today, so I can fix it easily. Cheesy

I couldn't get a better picture of the cards, so if you have one, Babsy, feel free to post it. All the pictures have screenshots from the movies. All the Kings are pictures of Harry, Queens are Hermione, tens are Ron, nines are Lupin, eights are Ginny. But my favorite is: Fred and George are the jokers!
