Where did you find talking finger puppets? Or did you get the talking parts from somewhere else like Build a Bear? What is the stretchy material in it?

Thanks katatsumuli! The finger puppets came with the sound boxes in them, and I was lucky enough to find them in the Dollarama! And for the elastic, I just used 1/2 a head band for each.

Oh my gosh, I feel so spoiled!
LOOK AT THIS BOOTY!!
(I'm sorry that the photos are low quality; I had to post ASAP, so I couldn't wait for daylight)
 


Geisha bags, a purple star bag, and a pretty pink bag with a pond embroidered onto it and a turtle patch.



Adorable cookie cutters, nori punches, snacks, orange slice ice cube tray, silicone cups, ceramic bowl and spoon set (with a little boat for mah spoon), heart shaped food picks, various snackies, mixing spoon for rice, and TOTORO BAG.



ZOOM in on THE bag.



Check out some of those snacks!



The final appearance of the awesome Totoro bag.  Jealous?  I know I am!

Orrkid, you are amazing!  I'm so worried now....especially since I have to mail the forgotten bit...

Somewhere in there, there should be a rainbow magnet to hold recipes on your fridge. Or at least that's the idea, but you can use it however you want! I think it was in the pink bag. Perler bead magnets are notoriously fragile, so I hope it got there in one piece!

I can't wait to get mine, especially to see what we both got each other! Going to go check now!!

Update: Got it!! I'll post as soon as I can! ^_^

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

I put the magnet on my fridge already--I love it!  It looks like a necklace I saw somewhere on Crafstah.

I love my stuff! Grin Thanks, Radiationbaby!

Okay, first off is a cool bag:

And another shot (what is this fabric?!) with a horrible glare:

Some cute charms! Well, okay, they're much better-looking in person, sorry for the horrendous photograph. One was broken when it got here. Cry It took me a while, but the red one is tsukimi udon, isn't it? I'm right, aren't I? Smiley I mean, how clever is that to make a charm of one of the recipes she provided me with!

And some containers and an oshibori (cloth for washing your hands):

Oh, how I adore these containers! ^_^ These are the kinds of things I dream about, but never give in to the temptation to buying them, because if I did, my apartment would be overrun with them!! Thank you!!

Ah, and here is what Radiationbaby was laughing about - this is what we both got each other! And the thing that makes it even funnier is that I have these already...I'd bought them a few months back when I started making bentos. I laughed so hard when I saw them! So now if we have another round (and you can bet I'm in!), I'm all set for one thing. ^_^

Another shot of the molds - ah, I forgot to mention - in Radiationbaby's letter, she said they could function as dividers. I'd never thought of that. A cow-shaped cup - how cute!:

And by far the bestest ever - recipe cards! And not just your average recipe cards, either...these had art on them! I can't draw, so my eyes nearly popped at these drawings - they look like they were done with a black pen and some markers and colored pencils, but look super fabulous! Ah, to be able to draw...

I am trying to get the other images edited for posting, but it's going to take a while. I'd like to share all the recipe cards with everyone, if you don't mind, Radiationbaby. They're so cool!

Oh, one other thing - I've been looking for years for a recipe for okonomiyaki that doesn't include ingredients not easily found in your local grocery store. There was one in my package! I grinned all the way from my mailbox, across the courtyard, up the stairs, and while I was slicing the tape on the box, and it just kept getting bigger as I pulled more and more things out! Well, until I hit the recipe cards, that is - then my mouth fell open!

Ah, sorry to be so free with the exclamation marks, but by golly I'm excited about this stuff! I must start planning bento boxes right away. Smiley

And one final thing (until I get some more photos up)...as hard as I laughed at the ice cream sandwich molds, I nearly died laughing when I saw your pictures, Radiationbaby. I was amazed that we both had the same green cube organizer...and then I realized that in my excitement to ship stuff off, I'd completely forgotten to take it out of the box! Good thing I don't need it, I rarely use it. Smiley After I stopped laughing, I cringed because you can see the horrible dust on it - you can tell how long it'd been since I last used it. But oh, I laughed so hard at that. Enjoy it for me! Smiley

Radiationbaby and Orrkid, your packages are both so awesome, especially for having sent each other the same thing...this really was a psychic pairs swap Grin.

Orrkid: [I want to see the bag with the pond embroidered on...] the Totoro is really cute Cheesy, and I'm seriously astounded by your metric butt-ton of stuff (and that none of it broke, nice packing) XD. I think I have that orange slice tray. When I put mine in the freezer it exuded oil or something though O_o. Really creepy. I hope it doesn't do that. How are the recipes?

Radiationbaby: Your bag does have really gorgeous fabric. That shape looks like a Japanese pine leaf, one of the "three friends of winter" (was it four?). I guess it's really a flower though. Where'd you find the cute boxes? The recipe cards look awesome; I love drawn-on stuff like that.
