Ohhhhhhhhh my god my partner, VegasZombie, is AMAZING! She's a freaking mindreader! Holy Crap. ^_^ Apologies for being so pic-heavy, but I had to show off her awesomeness!
All right, here's the goods:
First, the super-stuffed box before the kid and I tore into it:
Next, the totally sweet yarns and flower pins that I already have a project in mind for ^_^:
Here's the totally badass retro apron in my FAVORITE colors, blue and black, modeled by DH's monitor, since I'm the only one home right now who can operate a camera:
And here's the incredible candy haul that puts Halloween to shame!
Ok, seriously, the whole time we chatted, I never ONCE mentioned that the stop-action TV specials "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" are absolutely my favorite christmas movies EVER. How did she know?!?! And she also included not one, but TWO!! chocolate oranges, the absolute best chocolate in the world.
Obligatory action shot of "blue monster sucker! yay!"
In keeping with the christmas theme, she tucked in these rocking buttons that have already found a home on my crafting tote, as well as my new favorite christmas ornaments:
Here's the adorable little door that the kid has already claimed for her fairies. There was a matching blue treasures box that somehow in all the chaos didn't get uploaded:
Two beautifully crafted Tree of Life pendants (again, how did you know?!?! I love them SOOO much!):
And finally, the pièce de résistance, and a threat that gets thrown around my kitchen on a weekly basis:
VegasZombie, you are truly amazingly, incredibly awesome! I love it all!
