Oh. My. Goodness.  I just received from AprilJane, who totally went above and beyond the call of AWESOME! 

Here is everything all together:


Here is the skirt (labeled "Scully skirt").  It fits perfectly!  And it's soooo cute and just my style.  (The photo of my twirling around giddily in the skirt has been omitted for your own good.  Cheesy )


This headband says "I Want to Believe" all the way around it, and the X/bow is a removable pin!  (I'm wearing the headband right now!)


Here is the glasses case she decorated for me.  The inside has nice soft fabric, and a little package of glasses cleaning cloths!  I'm thinking someone did some serious post stalking for this swap!   Cheesy


Here is my new "Mulder diary".  It says "Trust No One" in the little window.  Awesome!  A girl can never have too many journals.


Here is my mutant bee wallet.  Cheesy  With paisley -- my favorite pattern! (Well, besides argyle, of course.  Smiley


Here is my badge wallet (/passport wallet?  Actually you could keep just about anything in here).  It came with a DNA ID kit, and a bunch of completely awesome CLEAR X-Files stickers!  Too cool!


And, last but not least, the Lone Gunmen bulletin board:


The text says, "We never gave up.  We never gave in.  If, in the end, that's the best they can say about us, it'll do."  ::sniff::  Cry  I miss those guys!



Anyway, there you go.  I am completely and totally spoiled.  Thank you so much, AprilJane!!!

So I received from GrannysAnnie today, and OMG.  My mind was blown by the sheer awesome of it.

First off, she made me a plethora of awesome buttons.  Unfortunately the reflection made them hard to photograph:


Here's a couple up close:



Next she made me THE MOST AWESOME THING.  Wait, I have to give you the quote she put on the outside of this one, first. At least, the last half of it.  It's from Tempus Fugit.

Mulder: It's just something that reminded me of you.
Scully: What, an alien implant?
Mulder: Two, actually.  I made them into earrings.

OH YES SHE DID, FRIENDS.


by a penny, for scale:


action shot!



And finally... the grand finale.  Hold on to your seats, friends, because your pants are about to be ROCKED RIGHT OFF.


OMG. LONE GUNMEN.  I wish you all could have heard the "squee" that erupted from me when I opened this.  I TOTALLY FANGIRLED OUT.  And also... detail shot, because Frohike's hair CRACKED ME UP.


She also sent me a rocking awesome bonus: the episode guide to season 5, which is totally my favorite season ever.  Made of win!

So there is my awesome package of epic win.  Everyone stare in wonderment.

I'm such a dork, I just sent samann a message and then, illogically, afterwards, came and looked at the board! I'm glad you like it! Cheesy
I was worried the skirt wouldn't fit - my dressform is plump, like I, so I had to trust that the pattern would suffice Cheesy

Chattanooga's lurvely and hot as hades, as usual...
I just started a new job on bonny oaks and the trip from soddy to there is kicking my butt.

Oh man!!
Those earrings are WICKED!

Oh man!  I can't believe I was out of town (without internet nonetheless) when people received! 

Lelila, I'm so glad you like everything  Smiley  Haha, when I was watching XF and heard the alien implant quote, I knew I HAD to make them.  And Frohike was definitely my favorite doll to make, LOL.

Apriljane, I LOVE the Lone Gunmen glasses case and matching bulletin board!  and the headband!  I would totally wear that.  Well, everything is awesome actually!  Grin

the scully skirt is awesome! I love the heart detail, it reminds me of the "paper hearts" episode, you know, the one with the serial killer that cut out the hearts from the pj's of the victims..

oh, wait..was that intentional? Duh!

These are great, if you all decide to do another swap, I'm totally in.

LOL!  Yeah, that's actually my favorite episode ever, so even if it wasn't intentional, I'm totally calling it my Paper Hearts skirt if anyone asks.   Grin
