Hey! I received from Mellyp the other day! She sent a really pretty wall hanging:



The image is inspired by my favorite place in the world: Winona Minnesota! She totally got the look of the bluffs and the river. The lyrics around the side are from "the farmer and the nomad" by the band Jayber Crow (one of my Favorite bands) who also totally understand the beauty of MN. Thanks so much Mellyp!! It's already on my wall!

Sorry for the delay! I could finally upload pictures!! I dont know why craftster wouldnt let me.

But here they are:

First of all & not pictured, 2 cool postcards from a beach near to her house, One of them really made me laugh!!!
And yes, swaps tend to be addictive!!

Now to the pictures... These awesome glasses inspired in one of my fave songs Les rois du monde - Romeo & juliette (france)


Then... I was soo happy that I started shouting "omg!Omg!! OMGG!!!" This Cat Stevens poppet

With different clothes which are sooo Cat Stevens (I love him, I could seriously have been in love with him):


but my fave stuff (really I loved them and ran everywhere with them) were these awesome pillow covers with the lyrics of a song that is really special to me.
One says "this is dedicated to the woman I love wherever she stands I give her dedication" is now on my pillow because it's my fave quote and the other one says "this is dedicated to the front lines that are dying for dedication, this is dedicated to the child of mine wherever she stands I give her my dedication" is the one on boyfriend's pillow.
Sorry for the crappy picture, I'll take a better one, or at least a close up of the quotes!!!

and as if it weren't enough... I got extras!!!!

Doll clothing patterns!!!!!! really needed because I just finished repairing a doll my dad gave me. And I collect dolls... so.
And QUILTING FABRIC!!! In my fave combination!!!! Omg!!! I couldnt have asked for a better partner!!!!


Thank you for being such a thoughtfull partner!!!! I really loved everything!!! Really I cannot find the words to say how much I loved everything!!

Malisha asked me to post a picture of the pillowcases I made, if I had one. Apparently, I only took a picture of one. But the other looks the same, just different words.

The post office finally felt like giving me my package!! It's so awesome! I love everything! On to the pictures...
 
First up, the box:


I love looking at packages that have come from another country. I think it's neat.

And I opened it, and the first thing I pulled out is.... A wonderful zippered pouch with stars. (One of my songs has a line about "Looking to the sky to count the stars." (from "Walk On Water Or Drown" by Mayday Parade)


It's the perfect size for my purse!

And next we have... a gorgeous flower with weeds! As strange as it sounds, this is a collection of lines from another of my songs. ("The Good Left Undone" by Rise Against)



I couldn't get a really good picture of the flower. It's a gorgeous purple-ly color, and the weeds are a bright green, with darker green and brown woven in. And they're at least 3 feet long! I'm thinking on wearing this instead of a belt. I love it! My daughter already tried to steal it! And purple is my favorite color, so double awesome!

And next, we have a tiny coffin with a red flower on it. (from "Thank You For The Venom" by My Chemical Romance)


And inside the coffin we have... earrings!! The earrings look like little pills, another nod to My Chemical Romance, and inside are tiny little stars. So amazing!



And next.... (no, I'm not finished yet!) We have an angel... ( another nod to Rise Against)



And then there was... This gorgeous flower. I'm not sure what it's made out of, it doesn't look like a normal dried flower. Unless maybe it's dehydrated? But I love it! And it's a really pretty dark purple/plum color. And glitter! It's already proudly on display in my living room!



And then... (nope, still not done) as an extra, sugar skulls! No really, they're made out of sugar!


I love sugar skulls! And these are awesome! I don't know how they make them so tiny. There's no size reference, but they're only about the size of a quarter. Awesome!!

I love everything so much!! Everything is so awesome!! I think my favorite is the flower with weeds, followed closely by the earrings. Thanks so much malisha !

I'm so glad you liked it.

The flower is actually a scarf but you can wear it as a belt too

The skulls... well they are typical mexican candies, specially in these months so you can find them in a huge variety of sizes, from a little bit smaller than those to... around 15 inches (of course those are amazingly heavy, and not that cute)

AND the other flower is made out of .... corn leaves and then waxed. It's not made by me, but by local craftsters, anyhow, I thought you could like it.
