Ok everybody...I just wanted to show that ptarmic wumpus is the best partner ever!  She sent me a package replacing the teacups and saucer that broke in the original package...here's a picture of it all together:


and here's a couple of closeups of the awesome drawings (all done by hand!!!):




and here's a couple of action shots from around the house!


My owly sits on my mantel!


My trunk has a funny latch, so it was recommended not to use it to tote too much, so I use it for the highest purpose, holding pretty yarn! 


Thanks again ptarmic wumpus!!!

After much gnashing of teeth, I wrested the second box from the postal service, yay! (apparently the regular mail carrier is on leave for a few weeks, the substitute wouldn't leave the package at my apartment but didn't leave a delivery notice either, then I was out of town, etc, but it is all good now, and I digress)

Ok! So prepare to be wowed by the fantabulous package that superhooker sent me!

Theme 1: cephalopods


Really cool diptych painting of a squid! I've got to take a pic of this with actual lighting, so you can see it better. He is going to live in my sea/beach themed room!


Squid technocozy, who can fit an ipod or cell phone. So cute!


knitted nautilus! He and his friend the crocheted octopus (below) are psyched to hang out with some new friends in my office Smiley


Plus a fun bonus keychain


Theme 2: ferns


fern-y painted flower pots! Destined for a life on my porch, holding thai basil Smiley


Wicked crocheted nesting baskets with crocheted ferns! These will help organize all my sewing supplies.


Plus a bonus extra beautiful knitted fern lace scarf! It is super soft and a really pretty green.

Theme 3: snark/sarcasm


A mirror with a quote from Firefly - sandblasted on the back! How neat is that?


One of my favorite Farscape quotes, immortalized in cross-stitch (superhooker's first cross-stitch at that!)...I should put this one in my office, haha  Smiley

Plus a bonus zine which I need to upload a pic for!

Theme 4: Maryland/DC


Hope you can tell from the pic, a nifty knitted dishcloth with a silhouette of Maryland (which is a weirdly shaped state) and the state abbreviation!


Decoupaged coasters with maps of DC and Maryland - the neighborhood that I grew up in is on one of the coasters! Smiley


Gigantic marble magnets with images from Metro (the DC subway) and a pincushion jar with cross-stitch


Notecards with DC map cutouts and big dots


Plus a big photo album with DC metro map insert on the front!

Wow, a lot of DC bling Smiley  plus she sent a bunch of extra ephemera for me to play with!

Theme 5: the tropics


A giant project bag with knitted bottom, flower pins, and fun tropical lining - great for hauling my sewing stuff around on trips and backstage!


Pretty dyed rovings (that superhooker thought were not nice enough, but are really very nice) with an 'oceany' and 'sunrise' colors!



two fun dishcloths, one with a sun and the other with a daquiri complete with toothpick umbrella! (hope you can see the designs)


And last but not least, a totally adorable tropical beach bird hut with crabs, fish, and shells! Perfect for my porch!

Thanks so much for all the great stuff, superhooker! What a fantastic package!  Kiss
