Ohhh! I love the Dick and Jane bag! It seems that if it goes missing, there may be more than a few suspects, jMisSister! Also, I've got those same star-shaped post its on my desk at school. Beats the hell out of normal square ones!
After a HUGE day today, I somehow managed to drive home (I'm sure yoda was driving tonight) and found a lovely blue package waiting at my door. Wooohooooo! My package from mimikachu!
It is so cool - you will see my delight in pictures shortly!
First up we have a collection of hand sanitizer (can't be too careful with all the little germies flying around the classroom), blooming green tea with jasmine, a cute zippered pouch - stuffed with metrocards and a bracelet made from subway-map beads!
At first I couldn't work out why mimikachu had sent mea stack of metcards... then she explained in the card - they make great stencils! I have a cool idea brewing already...
Then we have a cool pouch for storing and transporting my brushes and a journal. Made in the coolest vintage curtain fabric inspired by Andy!
I have to admit that when I look at it I get a soundbyte going through my head from "Something About Mary": frank and beans....
And an action shot of the journal. It is super fantastic!
Mimikachu was generous enough to send some vintage fabric bits! This is perfect timing as I'm heading to a textile workshop this weekend and we need to take fabric pieces with us to manipulate. These are going to be turned into something very cool!
And my favourite bits of the whole package: Awesome badges! Two are made from chinese propaganda posters and the other two have magnificent sayings on them. I laughed so hard I nearly snorted when I saw them.
See how they made me smile?
Hahahaha!!! I love them!
Thanks so much mimikachu! This swap has been a lot of fun! Thanks craftastrophe and everyone!
