Steven in his new shirt.. that he loves! And fits so perfectly! Now I get to walk alongside! Smiley hehe
(excuse the face.. lol he was tryna smile, but it was first thing in the morning)


Clockwise:
Blank cards and envelopes for when he forgets bdays etc (thats gonna come in handy Smiley ).. Shown with marble magnets and a special ScubaSteve magnet! (whats this made of hun?)
A pin up girl silhoutte mousepad (omg.. I photoed it upside down.. everyone turn their heads! lol sorry)
A stubbie holder (thats what we call them here anyway?) Soon as he opened his package, he put that on the coke he was drinking!
A soft toy football (the boys have all been throwing this around.. luckily I have yet to be hit in the head..)
Cool football themed picks and swizel sticks  and finally.. a decorated altoid tin!

I feel so totally guilty because my sweetie received the most amazing package on Saturday and I sent late. I got stuck at the hospital, where I work, late both Thursday and Friday, then a friend's partner ended up in the hospital so I drove two hours to their place to keep an eye on their son.  I plan to send a little extra package to my partner, our amazing organizer, to make up for sending late. Sorry Lv2ScrpBk.

Here's the awesome stuff my guy Steve received from Qwerty.

First glance into the box. It's a place mat with home star runner characters on it!

There are two placemats. one says "hey stupid I brought you this stuff, I mean, I brought you this veggie burger." Which is something Steve started saying to me because I'm a vegetarian. The other says, "Naw it can't be heaven, there's not enough twinkies."


Teen Girl Squad!! embroidered pillow.


Mugs



Least attractive picture I've ever taken of him, stuffing his face with the gummy bears that were in the, the cheat candy jar.


The coolest of all, a giant felt the cheat!


Shot of everything. stuff not pictured individually- the cheat candy jar, homestar and strongbad magnets


Sorry for the huge number of pictures, but my partner was so amazing. Steve loved all of it. He's looking to buy his first house so I suggested something housewares and let Qwerty know he loves home star. She did such a good job. For anyone who doesn't know this stuff is all from a web cartoon. It's hysterical. Check it out.  www.homestarrunner.com

Everybody to the limit!!!

He freaked out. It was so cute. He immediately called his friend Eliza and left her the looniest message. "Eliza! it's Steve. Katie did the coolest thing, you know how she's allways knitting and stuff? well she did this craft swap and it was for me! I got a big cheat and teen girl squad pillow, and... well maybe you should just call me back because this message is going to make no sense. um, yeah, bye"

Alright, so I figured I can at least have the satisfaction of showing you guys what I made.


He was very into biking, so i made a  biking themed notebook made with a cover from a 10 cent book from the thrift store. I drew the bike on the cover, but the embossing of the authors name was already on there.


and this is the inside cover.


I made a few vegetarian themed magnets, because it only seems natural to advertise a pro-veggie stance on the refrigerator.


And these are little tofu stuffies, which I thought might be good for juggling or something.


and an embroidered message on their backsides.


I made some bike related patches.


And since he hated tv, I made a t-shirt that says "Kill your TV" in red letters, and shows the tv getting thrown from a window.
