FreakieGeekie: what gets me is the stereotypical TV image of "OMG! It's Satan... grab a cross and a bible and hold them in front of you to ward him off! Oh no... it's not working. READING it will work!" when Satan surely knows the bible backwards and forwards better than any man or woman due to his origins.

Indeed! For my NaNo project, demons don't like holy things but holy items don't bother fallen angels, which are completely different entities Cheesy

My favorite thing is this mug with the gorgeous designs and the quote "Expect anything from anyone the devil was an angel too" and a pair of wings ♥♥

I'm so glad you like the mug and it made it there in one piece. I tried to take all the best parts of the make-your-own-mug posts and put 'em together. I did a scratch test, and I think it'll hold up. I saw that quote on your pinterest, and I thought it was a great way for a writer to think about their characters.  :  )

I got your extras yesterday! Thank you so much for the key/wing earrings combo. Those will definitely put me in a writerly mood when I'm wearing them, and the extra notecards will come in very handy. You totally didn't have to, but I'm glad you did.

I'm a geek, and I dispatch for a bunch of geek cops. I like writing, playing video games, and making messes while attempting to craft.

I'd love to do personal swaps if something I do is interesting to you. I love doing themed swaps.

Yay they made it! I wanted to send them sooner but our puppy chewed up the envelope and I had to find another. He likes chewing up things he shouldn't. Like my sister's NaNo binder! Grin

So glad it's in one piece because I'm in love with it ♥♥

I received a fabulous package from Jemimah! I ran into some problems taking pictures tho. Phoebe has decided the pillow is hers and she got quite feisty about defending her pillow. There was an awful lot of hissing when I firmly explained that she would have to give it up so I could take pictures. I also had to use hubby's very nice camera which I can not figure out well enough to upload pictures.



Here is a picture of everything (oops, other than the very cute card). There is the beautiful pillow of course, lovely wrist warmers for those cold November nights of typing, a very cute bookmark and a handcrafted notepad.



Here is a closeup of the gloves - she sent the label and a bit of leftover yarn as well - It is 40% brushtail possum... who knew you could make lovely yarn out of brushtail possum? Not me Cheesy



A closeup of the bookmark and the notepad



I must put in some close ups of Jemimah's amazing stitching. I love the fabrics and the motif she chose for this pillow!!! I wish I had better camera skills but you should be able to get an idea of how detailed and well done the stitching is.





Thank you Jemimah!!!

Wow... jemimah! That pillow is stunning! Sad I feel like such a bad crafter now lol.

Nolansmomster: eventually one of us will get to it Smiley I just realized I totally forgot to buy batteries on my way home from work.

Yay, I'm so happy you like your package Averia! Smiley

I'm pleased Phoebe approves of your pillow! Cheesy Although I had a concept in mind, I basically did it freehand and made it up as I went along, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

The possum yarn is a New Zealand speciality. Our possums were introduced from Australia and are rather different from your North American possums. Their fur is super warm and light. In NZ they are a major ecological disaster, so it is very eco-friendly to turn them into gloves and scarves etc.! (thought a little extra yarn might come in handy if you ever have to make repairs)

Thank you for a fab swap!!
