I received from Paleangellex today and let me say, I'm feelin' pretty damn loved right now! Like I seriously want to party with her, this box has that much uberness to it! Grin

(please excuse the cell phone pictures, my two-year old got hold of our digital camera battery charger and now we have no way to charge the battery! Sad)

The most awesome hat and arm warmers in Stark colors:


First off, I LOVE arm warmers but have never found a pair that is perfect. These definitely fit the bill. They are so snug but not too snug, perfectly warm and have awesome grey & button detailing. SO much love! The hat is also great; not so loose it falls off but not so tight it messes up your hair.

Awesome bag & patch:

The bag is my new official bookstore/library bag. I know she said embroidery was her specialty but wow. Amazing work! Love, love, love it! The Martel sunspear is just awesome.

But the really neat part about the bag is....:

Seriously. How cool is that??

Thank you SO much Paleangellex! I am in GRRM heaven right now! I only hope you like your box as much as I like mine. (Havin' some swap anxiety atm for sure!)

I'm glad you got it all! Did the card/explanation of stuff show up yet? Silly me, it was left out of the package and had to be mailed on its own.

If it makes you feel any better, I had swap anxiety before I sent. I'm just that sure I'm going to love your stuff. I'm so happy you like every thing and that it made it through all the snow. And, your cell phone takes great pictures.

Honestly I'm looking at these pics thinking "Huh, those look better than our cell phone..." that's probably not a good thing, is it? Wink

The card has not yet arrived, but my guess is it'll be here tomorrow. I'm hoping you'll like mine!! Smiley

I still can't believe I forgot to put the card in. I was even thinking, don't forget the card. I'm really happy with the bag. It took the longest time to make, and I didn't have any clue how it would turn out. I made the pattern up as I went. I started with a panel off a brown paper bag, and then faked the rest. I was expecting it to be lopsided.

Sorry about the delay in posting imgs, there have been some camera troubles. I received these items a couple days ago and WOW.  I'm pretty pumped.  I've been worried about not having any ideas for a Halloween outfit and Rainiable's package saved my life.  The first was this set of bookmarks which I will definitely be using.  Once Martin announces the actual date for the next release I'm going to have to start the series over again and these will be prime!



Better yet is this wonderful cape that she made.  Its perfect!  Its heavy, well crafted, warm, and comfortable (the material is super soft).  We keep our heat on pretty low at my place so this is going to be great for the cold.  After all winter is coming Wink.  The photo quality isn't the best, but here goes:

That's a beautiful cape by the way. Great job rainable.
