Get your pinterest boards ready and prepare yourself for such amazing spoilage!

Just received an amazing package from whenindoubtsew all the way from Australia. I honestly can't decide a favorite.

First, here is the outfit she made me. The shirt has a transfer silhouette of Christian Slater and Winona Ryder in Heathers, under their faces is one of my favorite quotes: " I like it. It's got a what-a-cruel-world-lets-throw-ourselves-into-the-abyss-type ambiance." I've had a crush on Christian Slater since Heathers and Pump up the Volume.  Shocked

Here is a close up of the image on the shirt

You can't tell from the picture but the skirt also has a favorite Heather's quote: "It's your turn, Heather. No, Heather, it's Heather's turn. Heather?"

AND, a Man in black pendant with "Iocane" underneath the picture. I love it. I already put it on a chain and started wearing it. You can't tell but I'm wearing it in the picture.

And if an entire outfit wasn't enough. Check out my plushy, Puckmarian from Flight of the Navigator

AND, bookmarks from some of my favorite movies: Ghostbusters, Gremlins, E.T., and Star Trek. The E.T. bookmark has two of my favorites scenes and pages from the ET book.

AND, an embroidered Neverending Story wrist wallet. On my questionnaire, I wrote that I'd  love anything with the Auryon symbol so whenindoubtsew embroidered it in gold and silver. It looks amazing:

AND, a set of Labyrinth magnets- one of the earthworm and the others are Hoggle spraying the fairies (another favorite scene).

Last but not least, here is a new addition to my art wall in my bedroom. I love it. She used my favorite scene from Princess Bride, printed out the box characters and put their quotes over their pictures like a comic book. I love it and I love the dimensional look the box characters add to the look. The frame is awesome too!

Here is a close up so you can see how amazing this is. They are literally walking out of the frame.

I really appreciated everything! I can really tell you put a lot of thought into each item and you reflected my interests so well it what you have chosen for me. I am truly touched!

So glad you liked your crafted goodies Helena Puck - I had so much fun making them. The 80s movie scene is ripe for craftin'!  Grin

Cool pendant & awesome job on the wallet! Love all the quotes and the box dudes too.

wow!  Whenindoubtsew those are some amazing items.

The top and skirt, stenciled and the quotes are the best part, I love the raw fabric edges and faded letters, great choices of quotes.

The framed scene from the PB with box characters is brilliant!

Love how your items are unique and creative and well done.

Like ohmygod - I got a totally bitchin' package from StitchzBStitchz today and have taken photos (at work) but don't have my USB cord to download them  Undecided. I think I might have to finish early today to get home and show you the awesome crafty's I received  Grin. I am blown away with my goodies - StitchzBStitchz has done a phenomenal job - she's so crafty and creative!

Let's just say my all time favourite 80s movie - Real Genius - featured (I wasn't sure if anyone would know of it but me) as well as Labyrinth and Princess Bride. I also got the coolest pink lipstick and eyeshadow in 80s colours (Let's see if I can pull it off  Tongue) And of course some yummy chocolate that I will be hiding from my OH or otherwise I won't get any!!

Photo's soon  Cheesy

Here's me posting to complete our trio (Helena Puck - StitchzBStitchz - me). Here is my awesome swap package received from StitchzBStitchz. I love everything. Here goes - lots of pictures follow  Smiley

This is what greated me on opening - check out the pink lipstick/80s eyeshadow and Sloth's favourite chocolate bars (Babe Ruth)

My all time favourite obscure 80s movie - Real Genius - my very own beautiful tote which is so well made - check out zippered pocket and extra pockets. It has a screen-print on the front with embroidered pop corn (scene in the movie) and embroidered verse from the theme song (a golden oldie Tears for Fears song) Beautiful greens/blues in the fabrics used. Love it

Awesome Princess Bride jewellery box and Princess Bride necklace - this is going to be worn like everyday!!

Check out StitchzBStitchz's mad art skills - this one is going direct to our movie room!

Rad big bow headband - do you know how difficult it is to photograph your own head!!

My whole stash - I am one lucky girl  Grin

And my whole stash fits in my awesome tote.

You rock StitchzBStitchz!

PS I have just found out StitchzBStitchz is my partner in another swap. I am really looking forward to what we craft for that one - woohoo  Cheesy

What a great Real Genius bag! I love it. That Princess Bride necklace is really beautiful too.

StichzBStitchz, I'm so glad you liked everything. I had a really great time putting everything together. I have to admit, Ludo was my favorite thing I made for you. And after seeing your bag, I'm so glad I didn't make the Goonies quote into a zipper pouch. I found out that I was threading my sewing machine on the bobbin threader and trying to sew, oops!

I'm glad everything fits. I figured I couldn't go wrong with an oversize white t-shirt. I've been wanting to try out T-Shirt transfers. They were fun. I'd love picking out the pictures from the teen angsty movies for your bracelet. I forgot all about Cry Baby! I'm glad the choker wasn't too out there for you. I was nervous because I was trying something new.
