Ok, I got my package from the_dez!  Here we have some very cute bottlecap jewelry-- I don't know how well my camera worked, so they're earrings and a necklace made from bottlecaps with little instructions for using chopsticks on the inside. 



Next is a cardigan featuring one of my favorite bands, The Pipettes. 

The front:

This is on one sleeve



And the back!


Here's a detail shot of the pin that I used to wrap the cardigan-- it's made from a found pog!  Pogs were so fun... Smiley


Two pins, one of which is another pog pin, and the other is made of found notes and lists in a bottlecap.  They were in this super-cute Hello Kitty Christmas tin.


This journal is made from really cool postcards:


Here's the spine


And the back


And the cute name page!


And lastly, the_dez wrote me a note  on paper that was too fun not to share--

The pog pins are made of found pogs, the bottlecaps were found, the smurf patch on the cardigan was found, and the notes in the bottlecap pin were found.  Thanks the_dez!!!

Due to a domestic disaster I'll be sending a bit late. At least I found a new thing yesterday that will be incorporated into my last item, so I've been having some luck this week at last!!....  Undecided
