Craftypuppymom has received!
But even more exciting (to me!) I just received mine too! I am SO excited! Ralph, you are the BEST!!!
Look what just arrived!
That's what was in the pack. Now lets go through it...
The card from Ralph that was friendly and funny and full of crafty talent-
and the tote bag that she stencilled...
on both sides! Useful and
But look at this! John Winchester's Journal! I think Ralph came up with all the journal entries herself. Its pretty damned awesome! See the cross bookmark and the buckle that keeps it closed?
He even has a picture of his boys in a pocket in the front cover:
Let me read you my favourite page so far :"December 11, 1983.
Sammy has finally started sleeping through the night, and now that Dean shares a bed with him, he's out like a light as well. But me... I close my eyes and's there. It always starts the same,..."
It goes on but I am in a hurry to show you the rest of my goodies.
Here is a little treasure chest, full of... you guessed it! Treasures!
This photo doesn't show it too well but it has a filigree pattern embossed in the top and is all antiquey-looking.
And inside ...
Its decorated with "Winchester" in letter beads and read glittery beads with Winchestery-type charms. There are little packages wrapped in stamped tissue paper. (I should mention that I love red and black. Ralph you are too thoughtful!) Lets unwrap the little packages!
A shrinky pentacle!
My very own shrinky Impala keyring! Now if only I had the black 1967 Chevy Impala to go with it...
Notice how nicely the tissue paper goes with the whole theme?
Here is my favourite jewelery which I will be wearing when I go out tonight : the Supernatural charm necklace.
It has a peace symbol and A chinese happiness symbol and a pentacle and a little gun charm, a cross, a bone-type bead, a pretty red chinese bead and a labrys or double-sided axe (found in ancient Minoan depictions of the Mother Goddess, Similar symbols appear on Norse [it was often associated with the god Thor], African, and Greek religious objects, where it is most often a feminine symbol, most likely lunar in origin. Use of the labrys has been documented on medieval charms used to attract women. Today, it is often used as a sign of identity and solidarity among lesbians...er... Oh well I don't care. I like the necklace! There endeth the "history of symbols" lesson
Last but not least - The Sam & Dean Cassette-case Shrine!
Isn't it the cutest thing?!
It would have photographed better if I had laid it flat but then you wouldn't be able to see the little tube of salt tucked into the spine of the cassette case which I think is the funkiest part! Oh this is SO
going in my car!
I am the luckiest swap partner ever! Thank you so much Ralph!
I love it all! I normally never squee but... SQUEEEEE!!!!
You are super-talented! You just keep getting better and better. Keep up the good work!:-*
