I received from iggy.boy.

Good timing, actually. I just found proof that my instructor dislikes me and I'm cramping like hell. Imagine my surprise when I found the delivery notice on my door. Smiley

I'm grinning from ear to ear, and you're all gonna see why. Smiley

(Some of the pics are dark because all you can see is white when I have the flash on) Smiley

(This is going to be a looooong post, because I am camera-happy) Smiley

Okay, here we go!

Box reception:

My dad wanted me to just tear off the package right away, but I wouldn't let him because my partner told me to look for something that USPS covered...(I'm good with a blade. Smiley)

Jasper = <3

So, I ripped the paper open, opened the box and found...

FORKS! Smiley And a chess piece. Smiley (I'm kinda slow today, so I spent a few minutes wondering why the heck there were silver forks inside. Then I picked one up and realized they were plastic. Smiley And then I got it. Smiley)(<-- I actually was afraid that the post office broke something, because I shook the box around and there was tinkling. Smiley)

There were stuff on the side, and I took them out one by one...

...and another...

There's actually two more pictures of the layers being removed, but I seem to have lost them, which sucks.  Undecided But onward to more pictures! Smiley

The item under the cloth was Bella's photo album.

(Sideways, sorry. Smiley)

(Text says: "As if I never existed.")

I don't know if there were meant to be no pictures or something... Smiley

Under the photo album was...

Bella's birthday card for...

...Renesmee. Smiley

Under that was...

Then under that was...

I went: AWW~ when I read the note on top.  Cheesy For those who wonder, it's...a box with a magnetic flap on the side which keeps it closed. Smiley

And then there was something inside, which I conveniently lost the photo of. Smiley I'll let you guys guess what it is. Smiley Under that something was...

iSquee. Cheesy


Switzwerland! Smiley This is all going to make sense after I post all the pics. Smiley

Under the box was a wrapped item that said: "Open this first" (This picture got lost too. Which irks me, really. Dang computer.)

And under that was the rest of the chess pieces (and more forks Smiley) and this:

Okay, on to the first item! Smiley

A Twilight inspired messenger bag! Smiley (I know you said this was easy Iggy, however, as someone who cannot sew for her life, I am motherofallflyingcows-amazed. Smiley)

Close up of the hands and the apple...

...which turned out to be a button! Smiley

And then inside I found...

...which is going to be the new home of...(I was going to say stethoscope, but they might steal it at the hospital. Sad) I'll think of something. Smiley

Close-up detail of the zipper:

Intermission: Go on and take a bathroom break or something. Smiley I'd just like to inform you that I actually opened the items first before the photo album and the box. But since I don't have the other pictures to fill in the gaps, I just posted it in the order that they were placed in the big box. That's it. Smiley Thanks for reading all this way. Smiley

So, now for the second item:

A dreamcatcher (Iggy probably didn't know, but I've always wanted a dreamcatcher, and for some reason, I've never bought one for myself. So now I have one. Smiley My partner's Alice-ness level has gone up! Smiley), a bracelet with a wolf charm (did you make it yourself?), and a wooden stick.

Close up of the wooden stick...

Which wasn't a wooden stick but a hidden compartment! Smiley It had a letter inside, from Jacob to Renesmee. Smiley

Okay, on to the third package!

More birthday cards from the Cullen family (and if you haven't guessed it yet, yes, the theme seems to be Renesmee's coming of age birthday. Smiley)

"Hey, Ness. I wish you a blissful coming and halting of age. You know I won't be around all the time to watch over that tempernamental pet of yours, so please do me a favor and make him wear what the humans call a mood ring. We all love you. P.S. I wasn't trying to offend Jacob, but if he did find offense in what I had to say then that's his own personal issue."


"Hey, Nessie! Sucks that you stopped aging at thirteen. You would just loathe taking middle school over and over again; and I didn't need my visions to see that. Well, hope you enjoy the beginning, and well, the end of your teenage years! I love you so much!"

"My dearest Renesmee, nobody in this world could be more beautiful than all of us combined. I love you."

"Nessie, please do us all a favor that your parents forgot to accomplish and save us all the trouble; use protection. We wouldn't want another hybrid of a hybrid. You know I love you."

"To our dearest Renesmee, A pair of voucher tickets for you and Jacob. Part of being one of us is that you get to experience the world to its fullest. So why not start as soon as able with the person you love? Our deepest love on your special day."

"My Renesmee, no inanimate prensent in the world is enough to show you how much I love you, but since your unongrinal mate thought it'd be the greatest idea to get you something your mother already acquire, I thought I should do the same. Your father and friend."

And this is what he gave Renesmee:

Which, combined with what Jacob gave Renesmee, forms:

A Bella's bracelet! Cheesy

I don't have an action shot... Sad But, rest assured I'm wearing it when I go an watch the movie. Smiley

Okay! Group shot! Smiley

Okay, Red is for/from Bella, Blue is for/from Jacob, and Green is for/from the Cullens. Smiley Am I supposed to be Renesmee?  Huh Not that I'm complaining.  Wink



It's very well thought out, and there's a story to it (which I appreciate Smiley).

I got very spoiled, and I love everything, and I'm still grinning from ear to ear.

I'll probably write you a longer letter in a PM, but now I'll stop because this is a waaay long post. Smiley



(and again and again and again and again...and again...)

You are most definitely getting something for Christmas. Seriously.

*virtual BIG HUG and  Kiss Kiss Kiss*

4  Poliovirus Stuffie :) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by lairsa on: September 13, 2008 08:58:47 PM
I made this one for my partner in the Anatomy/Medical Swap 2008. Cheesy

I'm extremely proud of it, because:

a) This is only...my third stuffie ever made, I believe.

b) This is the first stuffie that I made from my head (meaning it's my own pattern--except for the stars).

c) Huh. I'm just really proud of it. Smiley



Right Side:


Left Side:


The measurement from the top point to the bottom point is more than 15 inches (just to give you a sense of its size. Smiley)

Inspiration came from: search 'poliovirus' in Google, and it's the yellow and blue picture. Smiley

Comments are appreciated. Smiley

Hey guys. Cheesy

I haven't heard from my partner in about a month, and I'm assuming she has already has recieved, so...I'm posting the pics of the stuff I sent her.

First, some background info: wonderfinch likes stomachs and bacteria, and she has a particular affection for the Poliovirus. She also likes the colors black, blue, red, and purple. She's a very nice girl who likes stuffies, and she also wanted a scarf. Cheesy

#1 - An stomach lining inspired scarf (not my pattern--found it on the Lion brand website)

This one shows the color better:

#2 - A Poliovirus stuffie (I'm not sure what the specs are exactly, but a guest of my dad's mistook it for a sofa pillow. Cheesy EDIT: I remember the measurement from the starting top point to the bottom point was more than 15 inches. Cheesy)



Right Side:


Left Side:


(Inspiration is from a picture I found on Google: type "poliovirus" and search it--it's the yellow and blue picture.)

#'s 3 & 4 - Mr. & Ms. Stomach Ache (Shigella) Bacteria Stuffie Keychain (what better way to combine both of her likes?  Wink)



(The Mr. & Ms. fit nicely on my palm without the chain. Smiley)

Finally, a group pic:

...and another one, because I couldn't resist.

There. Cheesy

All were done by crochet, and I started making them a week after I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled out. Undecided

(So I can say I literally made them with blood, sweat, and tears.  Cheesy)
