Sneak preview for Kaiser:


I scanned some of the left-over bits.  The wheel thingy is actually orange in real life.

Well after fighting with my camera I figured out how to get my pictures.
Thank you so much DisneyFan!! I love everything.
I got a covered journal, a cell phone cozy in the shape of a kitty, a pair of socks and hair thingys.

Here's by slippers and the back of the cell phone cozy.

Me modeling my slippers

And my lovely hat that I'm wearing right now! Look at the ear flaps! Ignore the creepy stare I was trying to take the picture by looking at the back of my camera in the mirror.

I love everything! And after trying to learn how to crochet I can completely appreciate all of my crocheted goodies.

I'm running late to travel this morning, but I wanted to post a pic of my super package from sparklypants before we hit the road:

When we get back, I will edit this post with better pictures and much gushing.  Everything was wrapped in awesome purple fabric: awesome purple bat hook, super-soft wrist cuff, hippo-head pouch (with suction-cup spiderweb inside), stuffie with attitude, and beautiful rainbow lizard mirror.  That's my cat trying to sneak up for another round of sniffing--she sniffed everything diligently, except for the stuffie, which she ignored pointedly.  I think she felt threatened.   Wink

Thanks, sparklypants, for an awesome package!

--awesome package post, part 2--

OK, so I've got all the close-up pictures ready to roll now.  I love my package from sparklypants!

First, a close-up of the bat hook:

I love the color and texture of the paint, and of course I love the rubber bat!  I had a hard time photographing this, because the paint apparently had a very attractive smell for Pandora Underfoot (the unusually creepy-looking cat trying to creep up in the picture above).  I needed a hook for my bathrobe, so this is perfect!

Next, the lizard mirror:

I love the rainbow effect of these little rubber reptiles, and this mirror is going to my office so that I have a place to touch up my lipstick after lunch when I'm teaching.  It is, however, coming back home for the summer, because it is too awesome to hang on a wall unseen during the summer months.

The hippo pouch:

I have a soft spot for hippos that may trace back to a childhood love of the game Hungry Hungry Hippos, and making this guy's head into a pouch was brilliant!  He has a little velcro closure on the back so that you can stuff him fulll of whatever you need to carry.  I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to keep in my hippo's head, because I'm waffling between wanting to use him all the time where people can see him and wanting to keep him safe at home so he stays looking nice.   Grin  There's also the cool suction-cup spiderweb that was in his head when he arrived--I put it back on the purple fabric to help it show up better than it did on my crappy carpet.

The wrist cuff:

This cuff is very super-soft, and it features a clever velcro closure for easier donning and undonning.  I wear wrist cuffs frequently to help with my tendonitis, so this is a great swap item for me!

And last but not least, the attitude-laden stuffie:

I love the expression on this stuffie's face!  This stuffie is not going to take any crap from anyone and is not easily impressed.  (It probably votes two paws down for every movie it sees!)  It's absolutely adorable, and, as I stated above, the cat won't go near it, which is pretty comical since she's such a world-class sniffer.

I loved this package, right down to the shiny purple wrapping, and I'm enjoying the contents thorougly.  Thanks, sparklypants, for an awesome swap!

So for some reason I had posted this in the swap sign up thread thinking that it was the gallery.  So I'm moving it to the appropriate place now, so my pics can play with all it's friends.  Roll Eyes

So I must say a HUGE thank you to krafty kelly!  I received my package today and it was fab-u-lous!  Here's some pics:

First, a super handy scissors caddy with attached pin cushion...

Second, some awesome felt beads...

Third, some handy dandy coasters made from a vinyl tablecloth and contact paper...

Fourth, a beautifully decoupaged wine case for crochet hooks and such...

And finally, my favourite item of them all...content slash rabid sock bunny!!

Thank you krafty kelly so so so much!  I love everything!

I have serious scissor issues too!  I could be holding them in my hand and they just disappear into thin air.  A couple months ago I bought hooks at the dollar store and lined them up on the wall.  Now I have Scissor Wall and I'm not losing them quite as much.  But with my new caddy I can just keep them in one place and use the hooks for everything else.

In case you all haven't figured it out, but the scissors caddy is a potholder.  I got the idea from here http://www.caron-net.com/may02files/may02kid.html
