I am out of the country in the Bahamas right now working on coral reefs at a marine lab, but my husband just opened my package for me via web cam.  Velvet Dragon it is so beautiful.  The awesome tote bag with lacey spikes and the adorable scarf for me and my puppy.  The beautiful box with the ammonite, crinoid, and podsaurus will most definitely be in my graduate student office.  The cute key chain and all the dinosaurs so adorable.  You did a fanatatic job I will post pictures as soon as I return to the US on August 3.

I received from sweetbettieleigh today, and I love all my stuff!

First, an awesome box full of adorably wrapped soaps with little dinos inside.  (It's raining here, so all the pics are a little depressing looking.)


Here they are all unwrapped.


Then some of these fun things.


Also, some dinos to decorate my fridge:


and the best for last:


Adorable dinosaur bride and groom shirts for my fiance and me!  It's funny, because we talked a little bit about doing a dinosaur cake topper, and seeing how great these guys turned out just makes me want to do it all the more!  Here's some close-ups.

The bride (with snap-off veil for easy washing)


and the groom (could he be any cuter?)


Thank you so much sweetbettieleigh!

you are welcome, just plain goose! you know, I almost DID dino cake toppers and then thought that maybe some people don't have as crazy ideas for their wedding reception as I do, so I figured the shirts would be a little more versatile! Smiley  so glad you like it!

I'm glad everything made it to you safe and sound.  I used the tote to haul around the swap stuff for a few days, and I really had a hard time giving it up (it is bleached, btw, and it took forever to change the color of the canvas!  You can tell I started to get pretty impatient on his tail...)!  Thanks for the great swap!

I received from ollieorange today!!!

I have a craptacular camera, so I'm really sorry about that!

the whole group:


The cute little felted brontosaurus and the box he came in (I think he's my favorite):



an ankylosaurus and a skeleton key chain:



what is possibly THE coolest soap in the world:



a felted pillow:



A decoupaged styracosaurus skeleton (ok, maybe he's my favorite):



I wish you guys could see the detail, it looks SO cool! It must have taken forever! There are also two really cute dino hairpins, but I could not for the life of me take a non-blurry picture. Thank you so much ollieorange! I love everything!

I really liked the stegosaurus too! He was hard to send out. The bronto needed a home, hence the box. I'm glad  you like everything!

As I mentioned in the main thread, I was out of town for a week (camping) and I just got back and received my package last night from bluyedpoet! It's absolutely fantastic. I'll be posting pictures as soon as my partner gets back from the zoo, where she has taken the camera. Hehe.

Turns out she's using the camera for school and a stop-motion film, so I don't have access to it. However, here at the photos from my cell's camera, sorry for the poor quality!

She made me a tea tray set! I drink a LOT of tea. A lot. This will be great for summer tea parties! It's all green and gold, which are absolutely beautiful. And she put unusual, awesome dinos on it... the kinds I like.



The tray with one of my favorite dinosaurs -- Amargasaurus (the sauropod with the spikes!).



A collection of dinosaur coasters. I love the focus on different parts of each dino.



Two matching boxes, in which I shall keep:



New additions to my little fossil collection! Ordovician fossils from Cincinnati. Cheesy

Yay!

Sorry it took a bit to figure out posting.  These are the delightful items given to me by velvetdragon.  This is my new puppy 9 weeks old and three pounds he looks too adorable in this amazing scarf.  The box has an ammonite, trilobite, dinosaur and a crinoid hand painted quite awesome.
