Ok Ok, without further ado here are the AMAZAZING goodies Nobodyhasthisoneyet has sent me...seriously, I can't tell you how much I love these items. Please, excuse this ridiculously long post. I was too excited.

First, the delicious bagel I was eating while photographing my goods...please note the fine layer of veggie cream cheese - it's our stores specialty, and special it is on your tastie-buds...

Onto the crafts...A rug! I believe it's made from t-shirts, and it has an awesome fishy fabric on the back (underwater was a theme in my package!) I love this, and as soon as my visiting aunt gets her tush out of my room I'll display it proudly at the foot of my bookshelf.

Close up of rugged ( Cheesy ) goodness

A pencil pot! Or, at least that's what I'll be using it for. I love the lid, it makes it look like I'm hiding something magical and very secret in the mysterious red tube.

An adorable keychain with a little starfish on it! I love this, and now that I have my own set of keys (yes, at 21 I have only just gotten my own set of house keys) it'll be the "star" on my keyring...harharhar

And in keeping with the underwater theme, 3 little fish stuffies. Please excuse the absence of two, my little sister stole one right from the box, and then my friend knicked one too! I'll have to fight for them later, but right now here's a pic of a lonely fish in a tree. He's too cute (Oh, I've named this on Maxwell...he's yet to find his silver hammer though  Wink )

Alright, before I show you the absolute epic item in the package, I'll show the bought goods. Now, I don't know if I mentioned this in my questionnaire, but I *love* scarves. I collect them. I have a wall of scarves, all old and all purchased secondhand. So Nobodyhasthisoneyet, thank you so much for adding to my collection! I love them.

Now....dun dun dunnnn....here it is. My most favorite item, it will sit nobly on my bookshelf, and everyone who sees it will bow at it's greatness....

A FRICKIN YELLOW SUBMARINE! As in the Beatles. As in my most favorite band ever. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou! I can't imagine the time you put into this, it's absolutely lovely and I adore it!

You've been a wonderful part of the trio, Nobodyhasthisoneyet. Thank you so much for creating a lovely package for me, it couldn't have been more perfect.

My apologies for the delay, but here is the lovely tin sent to me by my partner Amalgam.

The tin closed, with it's very spotty decoration  Cheesy

The box open, with all my goodies

Here you can see a better view of the necklace.

My favorite item, the hat pin!

An adorable little sewn pin cushion. It's so tiny and cute!

Thank you Amalgam, and sorry for the delay in sending yours! I hope you like it  Smiley

That's a stellar package, Phizzy! I too love that bracelet, that must take some patience!

So although I said I'd post pics a few days ago, I only just got around to it. It's beena hectic weekend - a family members passing prompted a quick trip out of the country so I've been running around trying to get things together for that.

Anyways, here's the pics! Snaps did a great job, especially considereing she was crazy busy with her job...

Group Shot

The cute, little notebooks that Snaps decorated with various tree shapes, and some awesome Notecards. I'm a big snail mail fan so I'll put these to good use!

A photo frame decopauged in the shape of a tree...my mom really liked this so I'll have to guard it well

A hand-drawn tree on a tote with a beautiful quote (I like unexpected rhymes...) This is even prettier in person and I can't wait to use this on my next library visit

Thanks, Snaps! I love everything  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

"I've never had a friend like you"

back - "You keep me together"

"I wish that I had some kind of admirable talent"

"I am prettier when I look in the mirror"

back - "You know how letters and number are backwards in the mirror? so is you face. that is why you can think you look really good in the mirror, and look horrible in pictures. it works the other way too. i have a friend who is hideous in the mirror"

OH! Am I the first to receive?? SWEEET!!!

Well, here's the GREATNESS that I got from my fab partner, Brinn - ifallintheraindrops

Sweet Scarf - it has the Fight Club fist on it, and the intials.

Coasters! That Brinn hand-felted!
P.s. they turned out great, especially for your first time hand felting!

A notebook - Brinn says she's not very good at art but I beg to differ. She did a great job!

Fingerless gloves, with the lip "scar" on them!
I really, really love these. I've always wanted a pair of fingerless gloves, and these are just too cool!

and here I am modeling them...

And can't forget the gag gifts. Some halloween goodies, and some bouncy balls (which my little sister promptley stole =[ ) I forgot to take  a picture of the gag gifts by themselves, so here's a group shot of everything, followed bu a pic of me in one of the gag gifts...all for your viewing pleasure  Cheesy

Oh, almost forgot...another example of Brinn's "bad" art (this girls crazy!)
The card she made me =]

Thank you Brinn! I love everything...I hope you like yours!

Ok, so this is a shirt I made really super fast because I had to wear it out the same night. It's kind of messy, kind of not original...but here you have it!

In the process....


One of many mess-ups - oh, and here you see a fine example of my own hand-writing, which SUCKS. Usually I use fonts printed on the computer but at this moment I was short on time.

On moi...it sits pretty low, right under my ta-tas.
