Nicely done!! Cheesy

One can never underestimate the necessity of a coupon organizer! I live by mine- even if it makes me have to carry a massive purse, the money savings are worth it! Cheesy

My faves:
"we never gave up. we never gave in. if in the end that's all they can say about us, it'll do."
"we like you mulder. your ideas are weirder than ours."
"no matter how paranoid you are, you're not paranoid enough."

Hope that helps!

Hee hee...I wanted to keep the pincushion and bag, too Cheesy

I'm glad you loved it, ISewCute!! I hope you enjoyed your first swap and there's many, many more to come for you!!
I know I sure enjoyed swapping with you - you've been a fantastic partner! Cheesy
(also, your pictures are wonderful!!)

Hee hee...I love facebook. Mainly, getting my tail kicked in Scrabulous on Facebook.

YAY! I'm almost totally done with samann's stuff -- all that's left are the small items, although it's not very outright x-file-y. It's sort of subversive and subtle....which I suppose works into the whole idea of government conspiracies? Cheesy

I hit a crafter's wall, despite how many late-night episodes I watched and had one attempted project turn out so fugly I had to dump it.
I think she's going to love what I'm sending her, though!

Any word on pics for the gallery with the stuff that was sent? I'm dying for some inspiration!  Grin

Time for my showoff!
(Sorry it took so long - the heat here's been killing me and I've been going to bed so early I haven't had time to do anything other than normal household chores and zonk out)
Did I mention I hate summer? Humidity is the devil, especially when you're working outside in it everyday. Bleech!

Forenote: my pictures don't do these items any justice!!

So, I got this WONDERFUL package from ISewCute!!

First up:
The pillow/dog bed of amazingness--which is now safely snuggled as my sewing and knitting chair comfort pillow. The dachshund, Duke, will ne'er retain ownership of it again!
Seriously, this pattern is amazing. I love just staring at it. I giggle with glee!
(she also sent the pattern to me for when I, too, want to 'adventure' into my own Indy-knit! Cheesy )

IndyBag - 'twas to be a "Toht"bag (hee hee!), but this is even better! She incorporated my icon of nerdy school Indy!!
I've been carrying this around, but I refuse to take the tag off. No way! The Indy tag stays!! Cheesy

No, wait!! There's more awesomeness!!:
Magnets!! Every possible Indy character, scene, prop - they're gorgeous, and they have some seriously good magnetic grip which, for some reason, is a real problem on my fridge - these are PERFECT! Also, I get to bring a lil' bit of my obsession into the kitchen...which is always wonderful. Cheesy

And, still more!!:
Indy Necklace-- in ISewCute's fantastic jewelrymaking style! I've been wearing this alot lately and everyone loves it (including me!). Not only is it silver (which I love), but it's Indy (yes! Cheesy) and interchangeable with the seperate side designs! She also sent the cutest pair of matching earrings!! I love them!!

Last, but certainly not least:
I had seriously been gazing at address books for the past week, and been in need of one! I think ISewCute reads minds from afar!! My picture is awful, but there's beautiful scalloped stitching arround the applique, and it's a soft red cover that's perfectly made for the book! I love it!!

ISewCute has been a fantastic swap partner-and has spoiled me rotten! I hope she likes what I'm sending her Grin!!

Thank you again SOOOO much!!

You are a much braver person than I am! I am petrified of snakes!! Not rats, spiders, creepy crawlies-- they're fine by me-- but snakes, wow. I can't get over the fear. I've gotten better....normally, I would have seen those pictures, passed out from a panic attack and then had nightmares for weeks.
But, then, I've been bitten by snakes twice, so I have more than just psychological fear behind my terror. It also keeps me from camping or swimming in natural water, but I'm working on getting back into those activities.

That's very nice of you to release it! I'm sure the snake appreciated it, as much as their cold-blooded hearts can-- and your neighbors too! Heh heh.

Hippiejo! I love the apron and the t-shirts!!

Where on earth did you find map fabric? I about choked on my mouthful of water when I saw that! I've been looking for fabric like that forever.

The whip charms are so cute!!

Okay, so I haven't had a chance to take proper photos of the box of wonderful, amazing, awesomeness that I had waiting for me when I got back this evening-- but I did manage to snap a few shots of my furry "baby"/devil dog/Indiana Woof-Jones impersonator on one of the coolest things EVER that ISewCute made me!!

It's a super soft and comfy dog bed, although I have claimed it for myself! Cheesy
She not only knitted it, but she knitted a dead-on, goregous Indy-face pattern (fedora and all) on both sides!!!
Did I mention it's ridiculously soft and cushiony? I love it!!

I am in awe.

Now to sad dog faces: This was after I told him it wasn't his anymore...I'm just awful! Cheesy


Thank you, ISewCute!
I can't wait to show off the rest of the wonderful things you sent me!

I got my package of complete AWESOMENESS from ISewCute!

Not only is she amazingly creative and talented, but she sent me things that were dead-on on my likes! I think she read my mind!! Cheesy

I'm glad you got to see the movie! Cheesy
(also, even gladder you got to save a bit of money at the matinee...movie prices are WAY too high these days!)

Off to post a few preliminary pics in the gallery before I put up the proper ones!!
