I'll edit this after dinner to show off the AWESOME stuff I got from my partner!!!!

Either you live inside my head or there's some sort of crazy crafty telepathy vibes goin' on!  Yowza!
Okay- Dooney sent me:

*the coolest bundle with an awsome soft and squishy fleece tied/tufted rug- in black and pale blue 
(which I'm pretty sure is mu^su in Japanese?- I'm a little rusty w/my kana.) 

*2- count them- 2 pillowforms in an incredibly soft light blue mesh with a rather sexy lace-up closure- so SOFT! (woohoo!)

*My fave! A hot yellow vase with a stenciled scene from North by Northwest with Cary runnin' from the plane!  (it's already taken up residence on the bookshelf!) Girl- your stenciling ROCKS!

*A chocolate cookbook (which I remember from somewhere, but can't place it- I remember I wanted it, though, but didn't get it) which will definitely get much use!  &  2 Pocky's- they're a Japanese treat- think of a pretzel, take off the salt, and add a sweet coating--- these are peach- and yummy! (one's on it's way to the tummy while I type) and some adorable Japanese/English expression stickers!

I'll post picks when I get back--- Promise... *edited- pics added*

Thanks so much!  This is the coolest!!!!!

I know my partner (Dooney) got the package I sent--- I'm glad you liked it!  Was so nervous--- I'd crafted about a dozen different things- and then realized they weren't cohesive or were impractical to send out (the welder was put away for this one...)  So this is what I sent:

And the note that I wanted to include (totally forgot to tuck it in there) read:

So I went with the Gorey thing--- Kinda re-discovered Gorey through this swap, was really cool- thank you for that!

The glass is a painted Gorey cartoon from his alpha series--- I checked it out- and a toothbrush will stand nicely segregated in the corner.  Shocked)

The prints are from scans I cleaned up and recolored (to get some light blue and darker grays in there.)  Theyre on archival rag papers with archival inks and matting--- should make it a while!  (Tried to go with both a bathroom & a crafty theme there)

And the topiaries are a nod to Burton- Kind of a mini-home edition of Edward Scissorhands  Plus, since they saw mine, Ive had to make topiaries for all my friends places--- figure everyone needs em 

Whats that smell?  Um  The tissue papers scented.  Its frankincense and pepperwood- Theres a few extra sheets tucked in there in case you like it (Its my favorite- I fold my sweaters with a sheet before putting them away for the winter--- they come out awesome when the cold weather hits and I have to break em back out.)

Hope you arent disappointed!  I must have started and had to scrap about 3 or 4 different things--- Id get a good start on something and go, Oh shit- I have to order more glass or This isnt gonna mail without freight!

Enjoy!  This has been super-fun!!!!

this one might work, too...

And, yup---  though, I'm not a knitter... I'd say that totally sounds right--- just a computer geek...
