I received a precious  Wink pillow today from Jensews.  I absolutely LOVE it. She made me a Lord of the rings pillow.  I looks amazing on my couch.  I can't wait to add more geeky pillows. I adore this paper pieced pillow. I am envious of your sewing skills.

You can't see it in the picture but in the bottom corner of the pillow it says precious.  Thank You so much.  It is amazing.

That is a really awesome pillow!

This is probably a dumb question, but how do you use the pendant for diffusing oils?

Unless I'm missing something (which, knowing me, is very possible!), you just put the drops of oil on it, it absorbs into the surface, hang it up (or wear it), and the scent stays in the space for a while. I just put some on it, and it darkened the shape carved into it, and after almost half an hour it still smells very nice!

I am really glad you like your pillow!  I like paper piecing until I am doing it! Cheesy It is just something I have practiced a lot.  Its not that bad but I still have to rip out stitches sometimes.  The website i got the pattern from http://www.fandominstitches.com/  has some really fancy ones that I am not brave enough to tackle. (soooo many pieces!)

I received a amazing geeky package today from patty_o_furniture.  I absolutely love everything.  She made me a Twilight inspired key chain

A Muggle Lover charm,which I adore

A mocking jay stamp.  Which my daughter already stole.  She is ready the third book now.


And these great crystal ball earrings

She also sent a card that made my day and  a few tears.  I really feel like I found a home on Craftster and with all you fellow crafters.  You inspire me multiple times a day. Thank you so much for an amazing package and a wonderful message.  I am working on your thank you now Grin and I can't wait to send hopefully monday.

Love the Twilight keychain!   Cheesy   

I've got one more of my birthday packages done and will go to the post office in the next few days.  Was hoping my fabric would arrive for my other package so I could sew up that gift and take both together to save a trip!   Smiley

Well, poop...I can't make either of the end-of-month claims I'd wanted to make; one because the necessary supplies still haven't shipped, and one because a brilliant idea I had was really more corny than anything else (better for me to reach that conclusion before finishing and mailing it).  Roll Eyes My apologies.

Hello everyone!

I received from Avesthel last Thursday but I was on my way out to the cottage and didn't get back until yesterday afternoon.  I sent out my thank you card to her an hour ago and got some photos taken.

My boyfriend and I have gatherings at the cottage every second year and I was wishing for some black light art to decorate our dome.  We have been ultra busy with home renovations and were concerned we wouldn't have much new decos being that our holidays begin Aug 10.  This is well received!  Painted on canvas:



It's hard to take photos under black light, they never seem to reflect the true nature of things.  The colours are actually really vibrant but here goes:



Thanks so much April and I hope you like the thank you card I sent you today!~
