Lylanni sent me an amazing package. She really went above and beyond, and I was totally blown away! Thank you so much! I really love everything.

She sent me a mini Unseen University survival kit, and I think that was a brilliant idea!

First, there was a beautiful drawstring bag bearing the University motto (Now you see it, now you don't! - Nunc Id Vides, Nunc Ne Vides) and a hand drawn coat of arms, embroidered all around. I don't know how she knew that I love paisley like crazy, but I really love the fabric.

A closeup of the coa:

Another, smaller but just as adorable, drawstring bag with... Dried Frog pills! (aka a giant bag of MnMs) The boys have already gone to town sneaking handfulls of them. Considering the boys I live with are in dire need of some hallucinated sanity, I don't get too mad at them. Wink Now the bag is in use to hold the rats' yogies jars (since if I left them in plain sight, I'd never see the end of the begging faces.)

A cute felt clutch perfect for holding bags of banged grains for when I want to watch moving pictures! I thought this was so clever, and MP was one of my favorite books. (That poor little imp. lol) I added a few more bags of popcorn and it's in my work tote for when I feel like a salty snack during a lunch break.

Two pens, along with a felt pen topper to make them look like little scythes. Cheesy When I pulled them out of the bag, my boyfriend started laughing and I was like, "Holy crap, that's so cute!" Miss Lylanni is one creative lady. There's also a sparkly red bookmark with hand embroidered stars and a little plush wizard hat on the end.

Finally, and I think one of my favorite things of all time, a DEATH notebook. It's covered in felt, with a great looking death done in felt with the following quote: "I AM THE GRIM REAPER. I DO NOT THINK PEOPLE WISH ME TO GET... CREATIVE."

Thank you so much, Lylanni! Everything is so well made and beautiful. I was spoiled rotten!

Yea my package has arrived!!!!

I opened it to find this cool journal.  It's all grid paper inside so it'll make a nice planning book for future projects.

Then there was this box with a warning about feeding feegles.  Maybe I shouldn't feed him but I'm pretty sure they need 'Special Sheep Liniment' to drink.

Inside is the cutest ever feegle.  I love him! 

He's got the cutest little kilt and I especially love the crazy feegle hair.

He also cames with his friend Horace who is posing as a pin cushion. 

Sorry the pics a little fuzzy.

Thanks you so much Causticmuse!  This is a great package and just what I need to bring a smile after a long/stressful day at work.

I'm glad everything arrived safely! Take good care of Daft Wullie and Horace!  Grin
