Aww...so cool. The ornaments and the crochet Cthulu are too cool.

My package started on its way to cyberology early this week. Not sure how long it will take with the holidays and going over to London.

I just hope my package gets to you soon! If it doesn't turn up before Christmas I'll be well miffed,considering how much I paid for the quicker postage.

The mail sucks in December.  I hope you two get your packages soon!  I can't wait to see what you've made.

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

I recieved my package from Sew Pixie yesterday morning and it was chock full of goodies!

Here's the whole package;



My chosen story was 'At the Mountains of Madness' so both of the bags commeorate the 1930's Miskatonic University Expedition.

And here are some close-ups;

The Miskatonic University Logo


Lovely tin with a picture of Cthuhlu and a quote from 'At The Mountains of Madness'.


Cute Cthuhlu plushie pin


Inside the tin was a Lovecraft fridge magnet poetry set which swiftly ended up on the fridge!


And here's my attempt at a little Lovecraftian poetry  Shocked


Heh,as my digicam is so poor I think I'll save you the eyestrain of trying to read that!-

"Deep in the writhing pit of space,Nyarlathotep recited,
a voice that seeping,insane and of chaos,
crept from ancient,green R'lyeh.
And mad shoggoth scream."


Thank you so much,Sew Pixie,you're a star!

Horray! I'm so glad the package made it there and everything was liked.  Grin The Chthulu was from Hello Cthulu comics and I was hoping it would turn out better - but he's still cute.

Oh and the little goof on the logo on the large pouch...um yeah....age from it being 70 year's old...that's it. hehe. I was going to put in the note that they were found in the storage room at the Miskatonic U Gift Shop. Yeah, I'm silly like that.

ooo creepy poetry...love it!

Sew Pixie-I didn't realise until I'd sent the package that I'd forgotton to put a note in explaining what everything was.Sorry about that.

The buttons are Elder Things' heads.Hope you can find a cool use for them!

As you've probably already noticed the white polymer clay glows in the dark so you'll get lots of spooky eyes staring at you at night  Shocked


And finally,big thanks to Ghost Academy for organising this all!
