I'm so glad you liked everything pj!  Beaker and Snuffy are done in watercolor.  I was trying to make a stuffed Kermit the Frog, but, he never turned out right, so, I moved onto one of Gonzo's girls.  Hence, Camella the chicken.  Smiley  I hope Gregory likes her.

I received from Nolansmomster today! Yay!

First off, I open the package and all I see is gray.... Always a good start to a swap package for me! Isn't this the coolest bag? I have actually stopped carrying my computer with me because of the sad state of my Simpson's bag. Now I can take it everywhere! I really love this bag!


Check out my awesome Fozzy portrait. I adore the texture of this! It makes it look like I can reach through and hug his soft fur! It says Wokka Wokka all over. Smiley it's already in my bedroom where I normally keep (kept) my favorite music box.





Also an awesome (and big!) needle felted Slimey!!!! Love love it. Here he is sticking out of my puzzle ball.


Aaaaand some Kermit Pez! Smiley


Thank you Nolansmomster! I love everything. Cheesy

Yeah, I can't get over my goodies! The Kermit tote makes me giddy whenever I see it! The design is such a subtle and hilarious concept. My friends and I were analyzing the genius of it over beer last night. Smiley

So, pjr107 REALLY SPOILED me!!!  When the doorbell rang, I was looking for a brown box.  I look to my left, and see a blue, plastic tub/bin.  She shipped via UPS.  I've never received anything through UPS, so this was exciting.  She did say _ kept trying to escape the box.  Well, when I opened the bin/tub I could see why.  _ was vacuumed packed.  MY oldest son started opening the bag, and said, "I think it's a dog".  Even before the bag was opened, I saw the face and squeled, "It's Bear in the Big Blue House!"  He is HUGE!  I also received this cute little painted Blue House, and a necklace from a Henson show about zoo animals, that I don't think anybody knows about.  My oldest son thought Bear and the necklace were very cool!  That's a lot coming from a 20yr old guy!  THANK YOU SO MUCH pjr107!!!!!!!  i'm so glad I'm spoiling you in the Christmas in July swap, because you sure deserve it after this!

I received from calixita the other day...I'm so in love with everything!

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, in felt AND a ridiculous beaded cuff bracelet. I'm so serious, I can't take my eyes off of it.

...and a Dark Crystal tin, outside

and a crystal shard within.

"When single shines the triple sun what was sundered and undone shall be whole, the two made one by Gelfling hand or else by none"

The shard has a little hole for stringing, I can't wait to make it into something!

My package to calixita was sent today, I hope she likes it as much as I like what she made for me!!! Thanks again, calixita! I'm glad I got to be a part of such a wonderful swap!

Thanks for posting photos! Nolan is in love with the puppet! He reminds me of the Honkers. Bunson and Beaker have found a home on the dining room wall (and Beaker's hair is incredible for the record). I wore Slimey briefly yesterday and friends are already jealous... I seriously love everything you sent!!!

OK so the stuff in this gallery is sooooo awful that you need to send it all to me so I can save all of you from that Henson-lishousness !!!

OMG we are an incredible bunch of artist!  From the clay work, to the paintings, the cards, the beadwork.....my friends and family see what I get from swaps and are amazed what we make for each other. 


but seriously, send it all to me....you know you want to....

Sorry pj, you're not getting Bear, or the awesome necklace back!   Grin  In fact, I stopped at a garage sale today, and a little girl told me she liked my necklace.  I was wearing the red Wyvern necklace.  I told her my friend made it.  We both agreed you are very talented.   Grin

My box of Henson goodness arrived today!!!!!  Be prepared for jealousy!!!!



TWO tshirts!!  a fabulous Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem shirt!!
 
and Grover as Ziggy Stardust!!!!  (I'm also a huge Bowie fan!)

The colors look a little washed out in my photos for some reason but the details are great with wonderful shading!  I am in awe of your painting skills, Tricky!!

She also painted Rowlf on to a glass for me!
  He's my favorite Muppet!

And I got my very own Firey doll from Labyrinth!!
  I love him!!
Here's my cat, getting a hug from our new roommate.


I also found an awesome Kermit Pez dispenser and Muppet band aids in my goody box!!  Yay!!!!  I've never seen Muppet band aids before and will make good use of them.  I've very accident prone!


Thank you, thank you, thank you, TrickyMcVomit!!!!!!  I absolutely love everything!!!!!!!!

I tried to take pics of Grover too and he is just not photogenic....and that lettering took fOreverrr...but I'm telling you, the shirts were the hardest to ship off. I'm glad you like everything!!!

Rowlf was free hand and my first painted glass. I've already done a bunch of glasses since, I loved it so much!

....and the firey....such a little monster. I hand sewed him entirely and had a few problems...naturally his head went on backwards and needed to be removed. He insisted it was okay, but I know better.

I loved this swap so much, and every ones stuff is awesome! Glad I got to be a part of it!
