Unbelievable!
I went to the PO this morning on other business, and suddenly the lady pulls out my package from mandalinn!
Imagine my astonishment when I found out that it had arrived on September 23rd and that they had lost it and only just found it in the mess at the branch!
Imagine my glee when I opened the package! I have been spoiled totally rotten!!! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!
The loot:

Keroppi tote with funky handles. Let's see how long before 2 y/o Neta declares that it's hers. Like h**l she's getting it!

Woot! Pardon me for the mess.

Beautiful handmade cards and matchboxes.

Awesome shrinky dink charm bracelet.

Delicious hand-dyed merino yarn, which just so happens to be in the colors that I wanted for a surprise jacket for Neta.

What an amazing package! I am just sorry Amanda had to worry about it not turning up.

Now pardon me, I am going to sniff my new yarn!

ETA: I forgot to mention the cool crayon and marker activity book (w/ stickers!), the notebook (love notebooks!), and the adorable card with a Cabaret Kitty. Still sniffing the yarn, though.

I am bad bad bad.
I received on Tuesday, but a combination of poor time management skills,  babies, stomach flu, scanner issues, and the fact that DH took the camera to take pictures of his silly silly atoms kept me from posting so far.
And it's a real shame - such an adorable book!

The theme was food, kateh's interpretation for the book was just great:


The ATC's:

Left: wysiwyg (This one really made me laugh. The "berry" in my username is my maiden name. Most of my friends still just call me "Berry".) Right: shooting star

Left: Phizzychick. Right: kateh.

Sorry for the less than professional photos, I just decided that carrying around 20 pounds worth of baby all day is no excuse not to have posted, so I didn't put much thought into it...  Roll Eyes

Thanks, ladies, I love the book and cards. I am seriously considering mounting them onto a magnet so I can keep them on my fridge for inspiration.

yberry...
... i sent you something better, promise!

Oh, indeed.

Meet Murphy. He's a monster (duh) who decided to dress up as a bat. He even has his own little trick-or-treating bag.

He came with an awesome load of loot. My daughter turned out to be really smart - she didn't care about Murphy, all she wanted was the candy (she was sorting the items, "this is mommy" for all things non-candy, "this is mine" for the rest).

This is Murphy sans costume:

See, he's adorable all year long!

And in case I was feeling that my package was inadequate, the Israeli postal service was kind enough to send my package back for a really stupid reason, so I have the chance to pimp it up a bit until I get it back in the post.

Thank you MonkeyThumb, I promise to make Murphy very happy in his new home, we are even planning to celebrate Halloween so he feels nice and cozy. I will be going as a zombie. I don't even have to dress up.

Oh joy of joys!!!!
Yesterday, among 5 (!!!!!) parcels from the US, there was a notice for a package shipped from NJ. Needless to say I went all jelly-kneed and begged my hubby to pick it up. He was not in a good mood yesterday, so I went and got it just an hour ago.
What unbelievable awesomeness! TrashedClothing, I totally understand why you didn't want to part with this package:

Inside, there was a soft and cuddly Jack Skellington pillow:

Some NBC notecards:

A Wonka pendant and a Big Fish pin in the most adorable packaging:

A Mars Attacks! journal which is just so adorable and is next in line when my current idea journal runs out, and the most fabulous Lydia tote, with a skully pin and a Jack button on it - the tote and button are in purple, which happens to be my favorite color:


This is such a kick-tuchus package, and it was soooooo worth the wait! Now I gotta hide the stuff before my daughter confiscates it.

Thanks so very very much, TrashedClothing!

15  The Undermonster in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by yberry on: October 02, 2007 01:28:27 AM
I made this for a recycled clothes toy swap on another board.
I took an old (and well-washed) pair of my husband's boxer shorts, some leftover yarn from last winter's projects, random buttons I inherited from my dad, and the flower is from my ATC ephemera box.

Her name is Leeloo, she likes Indonesian food, Israeli folk songs, and bike trips.
Here she is looking through my crafts supplies to see if there is anything she wants.


I think there are going to be many more undermonsters.

16  In bad taste! (WARNING: images might be offensive!) in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by yberry on: September 30, 2007 03:30:05 AM
I am participating in a swap of ATC's "All Done in the Worst Possible Taste" at www.ATCards.com (today is the last day to sign up!) and these beauties are what I came up with:




Sorry, Annette!

Even though I got this like more than two weeks ago, I was sick, then my kids were sick, and life bit me in the ass...
Anyhoo, I got a lovely journal from dragonslair (which I have already answered and sent back) along with some adorable crocheted booties for my son and some Alvin and the Chipmunks stickers (thanks so much - that was one of my favorite shows when I was growing up!), so I figured it was high time that I posted.


Thanks a lot dragonslair! I hope you get my answer soon!

18  No one expects the Monty Python swap, round 2! in New Swap Theme Ideas by yberry on: September 20, 2007 04:46:45 AM


I saw there was one a little over a year back that seems to have ended kinda funny, but I think it's high time for another.
I was thinking the basic 1 large, 1 medium, and 2 small items.
Themes can include all of the movies, the Flying Circus, and all of the audio skits and songs, as well as other stuff like Spamalot (which I have sadly not seen yet  Cry ) and the artwork of Terry Gilliam.

I would like to organize, and start signups mid-October, and then have like a month to craft, so sendouts would be at the end of November.

Who's up for it? Please also give feedback about the dates. Holiday season will be ending for me in about two weeks, but I know it is just starting for most of the civilized world.

19  Oogie Boogie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by yberry on: September 09, 2007 04:48:05 AM
I made this guy for the Tim Burton swap, which has been sprouting tons of new topics over the last few days...
He is burlap, lined with cloth diaper (which I have in abundance around the house) so the poly filling doesn't spill out. The bug fabric was a stroke of luck - I found a little scrap of exactly what I had in mind in my quilting MIL's stash. The eyes are felt, and you can hide stuff in his mouth (I got this idea from Plush-O-Rama).
I turned lemons to lemonade when I appliqued a bug from the patterned fabric to a botch I made when I found I did not line the burlap up with the diaper well, leaving a bit of bare diaper on Oogie's left foot.
He was tons of fun to make, and I am going to recreate him in fleece for my kids (I can't imagine snuggling up to burlap).



I don't completely know why, but I'm really proud of him.
Thanks for looking!
