Craftypuppymom has received!

But even more exciting (to me!) I just received mine too! I am SO excited! Ralph, you are the BEST!!!   Kiss

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 totally cool!

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.  Wink
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...  Undecided 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?!  Cheesy 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!!!!  Grin  

You are super-talented! You just keep getting better and better. Keep up the good work!:-*

Glad you liked it, I didn't know the double sided axe represented lesbianism, I just thought it was cool.

The journal entries are apparently official. I found them here:

http://supernatural.oscillating.net/index.php?title=The_Journal_%28diary_entries%29

They are amazing to read, I really enjoyed it.

But this is nothing compared to the awesomeness of the package I just got from Geek-Pride. Will post pictures when I recharge the batteries in my camera.

Thanks Geek-Pride!!!

I think its really more feminism and solidarity. I wouldn't worry. It has represented many different things over thousands of years and most people don't know what it means anyway. I still love the necklace!

thanks so much - such a nice package - just love it craftypuppymom!

Nice notebook! Is that handbound, CraftypuppymomShocked (I'm a bit of a diary/journal keeper  Grin) The amulet bag is sweet too! (I love red!)

My friends are very envious of my Supernatural tote bag, Ralph. I can see I'm going to have to keep an eye on it...  Wink

I'm finally getting to post the pictures of what I received from goatgoddess, yay!!!

First is a picture of the Supernatural album and the tin.  You know, I came close to making a tin for the swap as well.  I was downing altoids daily trying to empty the tin, lol!!



This is a shot of the album opened.



This is a shot of the inside of the tin........it is super cool!!



And this is a shot of the two Supernatural necklaces that were hiding inside the tin.  I love them both!!




Thank you so much goatgoddess for everything!!!
