The Noodle Princess received package number two! Hurrah! The post office told me one to two weeks, and the little package beat their estimate.



I sent her two copies of The Stranger, since it's a free opinion newspaper that has a rather interesting personality. Some kitschy fat quarters fabric, a sampling of the finest of American Easter candies (including peeps), random "Washington" foods, and eco-friendly and amazingly soft bamboo yarn. I also screened the "Obey" Bush stencil on an American Apparel tee as it's a piece of graffiti I've commonly seen around Seattle... also, it's just so funny.

I found Noodle Princess' package in my mail box yesterday. I have a lock-box, so I'm really lazy about checking it. I think the package was in there, waiting, for a few days before I remembered to look. Sad Oh well, yesterday was the perfect day for opening it as I had a really crappy day--until I opened the package, that is!



I got: 

  • A really cute card that I almost don't want to use
  • An awesome metal red hanging bird (it's going in the front window)
  • Adbusters! (Amazing anti-commercialism magazine--just like how Old Seattle used to be)
  • Chopsticks (the bf tried to steal them, but he didn't get very far since we live together)
  • "Not wanted on the voyage" by Timothy Findley (yeah! books and reading!)
  • Tasty candies that I'm going to spread out slowly over time (so I don't get sick)
  • Awesome Shea butter soap
  • Tasty lip balm
  • Buttons! Hurrah!
  • Seed packets for my front porch garden (licorice mint sounds so tasty--how'd you know I'm a mint fanatic?)
  • kitschy tourist pen and pencil (perfect for writing in a stuffy "hip" cafe that needs more kitsch to lighten the mood)
  • Canadian nail clippers and stickers
  • Gold sequins (form Canada, which makes them special magical sequins)
  • A crazy crow magnet
  • Bangles! (I'm wearing them right now)

I heart Noodle Princess and Canada!

That swivel magazine looks really cool! is it only available in Seattle?

Have you seen the guy that does Found! magazine in those USA network commercials?

I think you can find Swivel elsewhere. It's a smallish publication, and comes out only twice a year. You can most certainly order it online from their site: www.swivelmag.com.

I haven't seen Found mentioned anywhere before--I just happened to run into it at the awesome local news and magazine stand where I bought Swivel. That's cool it was on a TV ad!

Here's a pic of package #1 sent to Noodle Princess:



  • Cowboy bandaids with a toy inside (tell me what the toy is when you open it NP, please!)
  • Rubber chicken key chain with a nasty egg that pops out when you squeeze it
  • Burt's Bees sampler
  • Jesus beads
  • Junk Food charms that had to be taken out and placed into package #2 (darn weight restirctions on those freebie USPS boxes)
  • Apple magnets
  • Zink (my favorite mag)
  • Swivel (an awesome female literary mag stationed in Seattle)
  • Found Magazine (awesome beyond words, especially if you like collages)
  • Three tin cards of old US propaganda posters ("America needs more MEAT", "Let Guns do the Talking", "National Donut Month")
  • Jesus Patch
  • Bush Playing Cards ("Even more slanted to the right!")
  • Assorted stickers that I thought represented "White trash" and cowboys

Wow, I'm surprised more people aren't signing up. It's freakin' chocolate! Wink

P.S. Did you get my signup the second time around, classycrafter?

...the two metal pieces are actually made from cymbals wow...how cool is that

I love it... I wore it out today  ... sits great on my neck..It like it was made for me...umm ...wait...it was ...hehe

thanks again Mikania

*Hugs Mikania*

Awww... I'm glad the necklace went to a good home. Grin

It was lots of fun to make and I think I'll soon be swimming in cymbal piece jewelry.  Yours was a prototype, so it was kinda funky on one side of one of the cymbals. But hey, it's a unique original. A first edition! That scuff mark--that was intentional. It's my signature. Wink

Also, I hope my music mix wasn't too out there for you. It certainly was quite an odd mix of stuff.

I've seen packs of fat quarters - 8 of them, maybe? But I don't remember how much they cost.
Does anyone have a ballpark figure?

I see single fat quarters at about $2-$3 in the Seattle area.  The packs are usually in the $20ish range.

I was just reading the Sha Sha Fabric Dream Purse tut that uses fat quarters:
