Sorry to keep you all in suspense so long! I misplaced my camera..  Undecided But I found it! And now I can make you all envious of my crafty swag!  Cheesy

The first thing I unwrapped was this -

A little Anne Hathaway plush pillow!  Cheesy I am amused by Anne Hathaway for reasons I can't really explain, and I'm doubly amused by this little hand-sized plush.

Next, I found this adorable lightswitch plate::

"What light through yonder window breaks?" I'm moving to a new house soon, and the first thing I'm going to do there is install this baby in my new room.

Then, a bookend! I've been really needing bookends, but I didn't expect to get any - especially one like this!

It's made out of a book! Shakespeare's sonnets. And guess what?

You can still open it and read it!  Cheesy I would say this is my favorite item, but it is so so hard to pick!

And in the book, marking two of my favorite sonnets, were these amazing bookmarks.

One has a picture of Romeo and Mercutio, the other has text from Mercutio's death scene. (I love Mercutio so much that when I changed my name, I added his name as a second middle name. I love him primarily for his death scene. I mean, he's still making puns as he's dying, how can I not love him?)

And, totally amazing, my new pillowcase.

My picture doesn't do the color justice. It's tye-died hot pink and baby pink, and the silver glitter on top reads "We are such stuff as *dreams* are made on - Shakespeare"

And as if that wasn't enough, crazyda79 sent me a beautiful extra - an illustrated book of A Midsummer Night's Dream!



She told me in the included note that she'd intended to make another bookend out of it, but it was too beautiful to mar it in any way - and I totally agree!

Thank you so much, crazyda79! I hope you like your swag as much as I like mine. Cheesy

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Aww, that's a shame. But I do love it! Yeah, that hot pink happens to be like, one of the two shades of pink that I actually like, lol.

A picture of all the goodies. Sorry the pictures are so crappy, but I had to turn off the flash due to all the reflective things, and the weather has been really gray and crappy lately.



Here is a close up of the magnets and charms, I am just blown away by Titus' hand!! you can't tell here but she even added in such minute details like the creases in the palm of the hand.




Finally a closer picture of the wonderful cross-stitch, with my favorite quote!!!



Thanks KaishaBackwards, I really hope you like the things that I made you!!
