I received my awesome package from Cassiecate Smiley

First, I want to say thank you to you guys for a wonderful swap. I made a great friend this swap and it was an awesome experience. Smiley

Alrighty, here it is:

Some awesome bookmarks with lyrics and definitions, some have beads, and fun ribbons.



Next, a nautical themed cell charm, but since I have an iphone, I'll be using this as a zipper pull. Smiley



And this is a makeup bag that she painted. I love love engine driver, and the powerlines line is one of my favorites of all the songs. Fabulous. Smiley



Last, and definitely not least, the most awesome hoodie. All stenciled or hand painted. I LOVE it. Smiley



I couldn't imagine a whale so cute having angry jaws though. Tongue

I really really enjoyed myself this swap. Smiley Thanks again Cassandra Smiley

I received from foob. The package made me very happy.

This has been the best swap. I love what I received!!

A Mariner's Revenge cat toy for my little kit. He has a "see-through" gut view of two men. The toy has since been frayed to s!@# from Aesop. So no more pictures of that. Rest assured Aesop loves it. I actually took a short video (Lolz @ laser eyes at the end)

Two tshirts I received. Supposedly one was for my partner. But alas ( ::snap:: ) they *only* fit me! They're both borderline offensive. I love "inside joke"-type shirts. The lines are from the Tain and Mariner's Revenge. The lines are super clean. Fan-effing-tastic.


A small embroidered pouch. I'm in love with it, Brie. Perfect colors, the button, the bike. I actually have an Electra cruiser and this bikes looks very familiar!! It was like she read my mind. I couldn't have made something better for myself. It's the best.


ALL Decemberists album covers on Scrabble tiles. She sent along this weird, neat rubber cording to interchange the tiles on of varying lengths. I am so curious about this method. They look very professional. I'm wearing the Crane Wife right now. I am going to be styling Decemberists album art for a long time. What a flipping cool idea.


Action!!




What a great ending to a "meh" day. Thank you for organzing, MFZB and thanks for being such a FANTASTIC, red-letter, creative partner!! <3

Aww I'm glad you liked it! Smiley

For the scrabble tile pendants, here's a tutorial that's basically what I did:

Wow, those packages are AMAZING! Everything is to die for *Decemberists pun intended!*

Automaton J., those magnets are so cute! I think I will have to make myself some (though I never seem to find the time to make stuff for myself. Other people? When do you want it by? Myself? Eh, tomorrow Tongue). The pouch and the box are great too! Did you create the pattern for the box?? If so, and even if not, it's reeeeeaaaaaalllllyyyyyy good Smiley

Cassiecate, you made such cool items! I don't know which I like best, the iPhone zipper pull, the hoodie,  the pouch, or the bookmarks! Wait, that's everything . . . Wink If I had to choose though, I might have to go with the pouch. That's probably my favorite Decemberists line, I get chills whenever I hear it. Great taste in lyrics Foob! ^ ^

Aaaaaand, Foob, your package is outstanding! It's really hard for me to pick a favorite, but I think I'll have to go with the pouch, though the Scrabble tile, interchangeable pendants/charms are a very close second. I spent this weekend drawing bicycles, so am very drawn to the pouch, and your color choices fit the mood and the theme really well! As for the pendants, I'd wear them every day Smiley

Edit: I almost forgot the whale kitty toy! That. Is. Awesome ^10 (to the tenth).

I can't wait to see what everyone else made! I'm going to be sending out Saturday barring disaster because two of my attempts at my large died. I'm really excited about this third idea though - yay for stash items and natural scratch-and-sniff materials! *obscure hint to Chloesaur Wink*

The whale hoodie and the make up bag are wonderful. Cassiecate, you're such a good painter!

ethertree, I didn't have a pattern for the box itself. I had a pattern for the crane on the lid, but as for the box, I just winged it. (Heh, sorry, crane pun.) Your other large died while it was being made? Wow! That's really unlucky. =(

Haha no worries, puns are, by nature, both terrible and wonderful ^ ^
That's pretty cool Smiley

Yes, unfortunately my second large died Sad, though it was pretty much my fault Tongue I was planning on baking something that really shouldn't have been baked (it was part of a larger piece, the rest of which one is supposed to bake), but Logic stopped me at the last minute. I really should thank Logic, but I'm still a little upset with it.

Edit: All items finished! I will be sending tomorrow Smiley
