I have a couple pics of the things I made her that show the details a bit more:
These are the card holder thingies:

They are fimo squares with beads pressed into them and a slot cut into the top.
The machine embroidery I did on a little bag:

It is my symbolic interpretation of the tarot's Empress.
And the peacock t-shirt really turned out awesome. Here's a pic that shows the placement a little better:

So I received my package from ollieorange today, and as she promised it is full of creepy (and crafty) goodness. I was so excited that I took an over abundance of pictures, so please bear with me.

Here is the overall package:



And here are some close up shots:
A mirror that has been decoupaged with pages from a children's scientific book (i think)


Close up of the flying squirrel goodness- Wheeee!!!!:


A black velvet painting kit (and I now have the song Black Velvet by Alannah Myles stuck in my head)


wind up sushi!


Handmade needle book with awesome zebra striped felt
Outside

Inside


Now you may be saying "Well that really isn't all THAT creepy. Where is the creepy this crazy lady keeps promising" You may have noticed a doll head in the first picture- if that wasn't creepy enough, wait till you see what ollieorange did to it.


She turned it into a pin cushion that looks like the doll's brains!!! I really love this. Seriously.

Ollieorange also gave me an awesome sewing book that will be useful as I attempt to learn how to sew.

Thanks ollieorange!!! you did a super job!

that truly is creepy!
I had bought a bag of mystery goods from Thrift Mart and it had some zippers, a wooden round basket and of all things creepy plastic doll head and arms and legs - I took out the creepy doll parts out of the bag and told them they could keep them... they give me the heebies.  In hind sight I should have kept them for some kind of creepy goodness like that but dang they just creep me out!
