i am a horrible horrible person who takes waaaaay too long to get shiz done! these photos were just quick in a terrible sighting situation, but they were the best we could do... they really don't do my awesome new lootz justice but i wanted to share with everyone before i had to take off out of town for the weekend again!
okay, so the first thing i found when i opened up the MASSIVE package i'd received from thisbirdisabsurd is this totally awesome card.
this is NOT A PRINT. this is a pen drawing. it looks like the real thing. it is awesome. i am going to frame it and hang it on my wall. =)
then i got the cutestest leetle handpainted box. sheeck it out!
it says "L is for Leo who swallowed some tacks". i love eet!
and for the main event! i wish these photos could convey to you how awesome this guy is. because he is TOTALLY AMAZEBALLS!!
and he's HUGE! like, just a hair under two feel tall WITHOUT his umbrella! his head, hands, and feet are made of sculpey, i think. his body is stuffed, and his legs are cloth wrapped wire. i'm not sure how she made the umbrella - it's a coarse cheesecloth type fabric that has been stiffened somehow. i love love love love him, and i have a built-in niche in the hallway where i think he will be peeeerfect. hmmm..... now i'm gonna have to get somebody to make me some gashlycrumb tinies.. *ahem*...
thanks sooo much thisbirdisabsurd, i can't tell you how much i LURVE my goodies - i'm seriously soooo stoked over everything!! i just finished my main item for you the night before last - i hope you love as much as i love what i got! i've gotta finish up one other little project for you (probably early next week) and i will be able to send!
