i didn't send nearly as much as some of the packages i've seen so far but i worked hard and made good stuff and i was happy when i boxed it up and sent it off so i'm not going to start second guessing myself now.

Are you kidding, you made me so much stuff!  I think people just feel like these are small packages, because they're little doll-sized items.  The time and care everyone's putting in them though far outweighs the physical size.

Pics forthcoming btw...  ^_^

I was wondering if I missed your package until i saw that pics are forthcoming!! YAY!!

Sorry Eliea, didn't come in today's mail. I'm waiting very patiently and blaming it on President's day:)

Ok, MonkeyThumb made me so much stuff, I gotta warn you there's a lot of pics.

She sent everything in this pretty box:

And packed so much stuff in it, all of which was wrapped in fun paper with little notes for every item:

When we started the swap, I told her I liked steampunk stuff, so the whole package has that theme.  Here is the outfit she made:

Closeups to show the details of the shirt and corset:

And of course every good steampunk girl needs some ass-kicking boots:

And a belt with a gun holster (that matches the corset):

A decorative watch dangly that can hang from the poppet's belt (or my purse XD):

And to complete the outfit, the quintessential steampunk accessory - goggles (and they actually have lenses in them! MonkeyThumb, your ingenuity amazes me.):

She also made a poppet-sized camera out of polymer clay.  Look at the details! 

I don't actually have a poppet of my own yet, so MonkeyThumb sent me materials to make one. 

Not only did she give me supplies, she did half the work for me!
Soft soft fabric, all pinned in place with the pattern ironed on:

The most awesomely fantastic wonderful dread-looking yarn in such gorgeous shades of red, all wefted together (plus some extra, loose poppet hair, (not pictured) which is even woolier and more dready looking):


Eyes!  With felt lids and the most jaw-droppingly awesome jeweled eyelashes:

She also gave me buttons for jointing, a big long needle, clay for molding the nose, and one of the skully poppet necklaces ghilie made.

What a sultry, sexy, bad-ass steampunk poppet I'm going to have!  Thank you so so so much MonkeyThumb!!!  Everything is so fabulous.

yay! ooh, you took such great pics! i am so happy that you like everything and i can't WAIT to see your poppet all finished and dressed up in all her groovy finery.
your girl can wear the skirt and the bloomers as seperate bottoms and the tops too, mix and match!
the boots are my fave, i wish i had been able to make those huge tall soles but i was running out of polymer clay and they were getting heavy! funny.
and i am very happy to see that the ray gun stayed together. the glue on the clear tube wanted to come undone, it was driving me crazy! (that tube is a baby bottle for scrapbooking, btw. perfect size and shape. i love the misusable craft materials!)

the watch, i pulled apart about 5 old broken watches and salvaged all the bits. it was funny and crazy and i think next time i'll order watch parts online! who knew they were so insane on the inside, whew.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
