Wow, everything is so beautifully packaged! Lucky CabinArts!
Here is my awesome calendar! Books! I love it, thank you disposableactor!
I can't wait until the first!
Finally getting some days up! I apologize to my partner for not posting pics yet. Tonight when I went to finally take the pics I couldn't find my camera. I hope I find it soon, but my Droid takes decent pics! I may have not quite matched up the quotes with the correct day, and I appear to have misplaced one along the way. Maybe it's off somewhere with my camera.
Day 1: Baking sprinkles! Edible glitter shaped like stars
"Cookies are made of butter and love" --Norwegian Proverb
Day 2: Teeny tiny turtle magnet just coming out of his shell. This is on my fridge right now but I assume as soon as one of my nephews sees it they will steal it. Hooligans.
Day 3: A cute hair clip! Just the style I like!
Day 4: Needle and thread embroidery! This is going in my sewing room!
"It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept buying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Bu then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?" --Fry
Day 5: Little ornament made out of cinnamon with jingle bells!
Day 6: Another cute ornament, it's folded paper (?) with a jingle bell! I love that the string reminds me of friendship bracelets (my first craft!)
I found one of the missing quotes!
"Think how many blameless lives are brightened by the blazing indiscretions of other people." --Saki
Day 7: Mini Mittens! So cute, you can see the back with the tiny clothespin connection in the picture above. Again I've misplaced a quote. But I found my camera, apparently I left it at my brother's at Thanksgiving!
"A piece of string walks into a bar and the bartender says, 'Hey, We don't serve string here.' So the piece of string leaves but he comes back later...in disguise. He ties himself into a knot and pulls out a full threads. When he walks into the bar again, the bartender asks 'are you a piece of string?' And the string answers, 'No, a frayed knot' "
Cute felt pin and a comic. The way the pin was sticking out of the book it looked like a bookmark! The comic is awesome, it's about "The Yellow Wallpaper", which I wrote my senior thesis on.
"Doctor, there's a woman in the wallpaper"
"That woman has a feminist agenda.Tell her to get in the wallpaper that's in the kitchen!"
ha! love it!
Cute compact with the initial M on it...and it's pink!
What's inside? A sewing kit! How awesome!
Boy: n. A noise with dirt on it. "Not Your Average Dictionary"
Describes my nephews!
Another M! Awesome embroidery transfer!
"I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once. But by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog" --Dwight Schrute
Button Magnet! I needed magnets and I love buttons. Winning!
"What contemptible scoundrel has stolen the cork to my lunch?" --W. Clement Stone
Lindt Candy! There used to be 3. I might save one for my mom and one for my boyfriend. But I probably won't, that doesn't really sound like something I would do.
"There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love chocolate and Communists." --Leslie Moak Murray
Fun yellow fabric. I know I've mixed up the quotes, it's entirely possible the yellow wallpaper comic came with this day!
Leela: I don't know what you did Fry, but once again, you screwed up! Now all the planets are gonna start cracking wise about our mamas.
Hermes: I'm just glad my fat, ugly mama isn't alive to see this day.
Professor Farnsworth: Enough about your promiscuous mother, Hermes! We have a bigger problem.
So awesome---Shrinky dinks! My nephews love TMNT and Shredder is their favorite! It came with colored pencils and a Zoidberg too! The boys are going to have so much fun making these and putting them on the tree!
'When you feel like absolutely no one's watching you, that's probably a ninja. Yeah. Pretty heavy stuff." --Ask a Ninja
Super cute shrinky dink ornament. You can see a candle glowing in one window and a decorated tree in another! So detailed!
Different kind of delicious lindt candy with sea salt and caramel. Nom nom nom! I actually shared this with my mom...but yeah it's long gone
"I used to wake up at 4 am and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness." --James Thurber
Shrinky dink buttons! So fun!
Glittery butterfly on a mini clothespin!
Fun suncatcher kit with directions on how to fill it with the beads and melt it in the oven! There's a hanger for it too that didn't make it into the pic
Simpsons magnet for my boyfriend!
Yummy tea, another cute hair clip, and now I'm waited to long and the wonderful goodies have scattered and I forgot what exactly was which day. But my partner and I did send each other one of the same quotes, how hilarious is that?
I'm sorry it's taking me so long to put this up...but my Christmas Day present was this adorable "M" embroidery! Yay, I got hoopla! Thank you disposableactor for being a great partner!
