Okay, folks, I received today! I got the best package ever! I can't say enough nice things or use enough exclamatory sentences about this package!!!!!

First off, I went almost totally Rushmore on the questionnaire. I do love all his movies, but Rushmore is hands down my favorite movie ever. stitchzBstitchz made me the best Rushmore-centric package! Check it out:

I opened the package and found a bunch of wrapped and numbered mini-packages! Here they are, along with some awesome spoilage:


One of my favorite moments of the movie is when Herman Blume sneaks up behind Miss Cross when she's outside painting with her kids. He asks the little kid what he's painting, and he responds, 'It's uh................. ...........jellyfis h!' It cracks me up! In honor of that, I got a jellyfish!


Another favorite quote is when Herman tells Max he can't quit Rosemary because she's his Rushmore. There's something so sad and poignant about the whole thing for me. We all have our Rushmores. This is perfectly executed to capture Herman in all his helpless glory.


I wanted a Rushmore Yankees shirt. The yellow spots are little fabric bees! So so so cute!


I think this is my favorite thing I've ever gotten from any swap package. It is, in a word, MAGNIFICENT. It's a Rushmore tote/purse, based on the movie poster. The bag and background are fabric, the Max is done in felt. Oh, the details! This is the front.....


And this is the back!


I think all of us that mentioned Rushmore as a favorite had the quote on our questionnaires. It's completely lined (with the same awesome bee fabric that was used on the shirt!), with a zipper pocket and keychain attachment. LOVE. THIS. BAG.

I also got some major spoilage in the form of candy and heart poppers (so fun!)! Even my non-Wes-Anderson-appreciating handsome hubs thought this was a really fantastic package! Thank you times infinity, stitchzBstitchz! I am so super happy with my loot! You're the best!

The felt details on the tote bag are so awesome! Great package.

I'm almost done with my stuff and hopefully will be sending early.

I received my package from Najaorama today.  She did a nice job crafting for me lots of Life Aquatic stuff.  Thank you very much najaorama!

Here are the pictures:
An Octopus:


Stick of dynamite and shark:


Shark close-up:


Lovely art journal with Mr. Zissou on the cover:


My most favorite item- t-shirt (and I love that art work):


There was also a glass with seahorse in gel, but it unfortunately was broken.  You can sort of see it here, through the glass pieces (it was a great idea, to trap seahorse in the gel- good thinking):

Thank you very much Najaorama!
