I got my stuff from PixieSkull this weekend and it's all super cute!  She sent me a soft and cuddly fleece pillow cover, a tote made from skull-print fabric, two bracelets, a pair of earrings, and a beaded ring.  The earrings and one of the bracelets are very tiki-looking with tropical flowers and little carved skulls while the other bracelet and ring are made of tiny little skulls with tiny black beads.  I'm pretty clueless about jewelry making, so it's awesome to get a bunch of new stuff to wear.
Here's a picture of all the loot together.


and here's a closeup of the jewelry and the skull print on the tote.

I know PixieSkull got her stuff now, so I thought I'd go ahead and post pics of what I sent.  I made a skeleton stuffy with his own scarf, a skull illusion scarf in pink and black, and etched skulls onto a jar which I filled with stress relief milk bath.
Here's everything together.


Here's a closeup of the back of the stuffy's embroidered spine...I liked his little tailbone. Grin

Both of that stuff is great! I like the tiki skull motif and that scarf is out of control. And the little stuffed friend is very cute.

Thanks for posting all the pictures, Alison! Mom's not too keen on letting me use the camera, due to it's temperamental nature and her paranoia. Honestly, I'm 19 and I'm electronics-savvy! Oh well.

The earrings were so much fun to make, and I figured the tote's sturdier with the two straps. I was going to button them together or something, but you may do with them as you wish.

This was a lot of fun, I'm glad I joined!

I got a chance to use the tote today and it's holding all my stuff beautifully.  The two straps make it sit securely on my shoulder and seem to distribute the weight of the tote really well.  I think you did a great job. Thanks!
