The photo upload is working for me, so here are some pics of the lovely package I got from Xandrigirly!

First up, I got a duct tape wallet (on payday, too -- how satisfying)

I love the Mario mushroom and the nice purple trim.  It's straight off my wists -- my fiance is so jealous!

In keeping with the geekery theme, these AWESOME earrings, also from my wist!

The white spots on the cap glow in the dark Cheesy  I've been wearing them today and gotten lots of compliments.

I also got a great little kit to make stamps in foam, plus some elastic and the prettiest buttons ever Smiley

This package totally made my week.  You Craftster ladies are so talented and so generous Cheesy  Thank you again Xandrigirly!

I received a lovely bookmark from Minuku!  The crappy cell phone pictures don't do it justice at all Sad

The front:

The back:

It's a gorgeous piece of work; thanks so much Minuku!

Yzzilnoaj sent me a wonderful box of goodies...definitely an anti-anxiety kit Cheesy

The whole group:

There's a HUGE mug, a keyboard wrist rest and a matching rest for the mouse, an eye pillow with lavender essential oil, some homegrown tea and reusable tea bags, a little booklet with lots of uplifiting quotes, and a lavender milk bath.  I'm sooooo looking forward to using that when I go home for break next week! 

The teas were grown by her sister(?) -- white rose and chamomile.  Chamomile happens to be my favorite tea. 

And, the little booklet.  I'm going to keep it in my purse.  It's got some quotes by people I love, like Einstein and St. Augustine. 

There was also a pretty little card with a lighthouse, but I forgot to take a picture of that.

Thank you soooo much yzzilnoaj!  This lovely and generous package could not have come at a better time.  Cheesy

I received from Tinkstar390!  It's a great bookmark, I really like it.  Sorry for the cruddy cell phone pic, but I messed up my camera recently Sad

Hopefully I can borrow a camera soon and get a better pic.  Either way, it's great; thanks so much Tinkstar!  It's going in my copy of East of Eden.

I'm finally getting to posting pictures of the lovely bookmark I got from Brackish Potato!  I think she read my mind about what I like, because this is just awesome Smiley

Some of the papers are textured and the backing paper is awesome.  I must find this and make something else out of it.

Thanks again Brackish Potato!  I've been using it while reading Jane EyreSmiley

16  Re: Ongoing Rag Rug Craftalong--Make any rug you like! in Craftalongs by Mrs. Awesome_Pants on: February 12, 2011 03:51:27 PM
I got my rugs done in time for Christmas!  I made two and gave them both to my mom, and she loved them.  We put them in the kitchen and she had to make sure every visitor that came over saw them.  It made me really happy she liked them.

This is my favorite one.  I forget how big it is exactly, but I believe it's around 24" across.  It's in front of the stove and definitely makes it much nicer to be standing there, since the back door is right nearby and the floor tends to get pretty chilly even when we have the thermostat up.

The second is a lot smaller, the perfect size for a kitty to relax Smiley

I'm thinking my next project will be to take what's leftover from these rugs and make a scrappy outdoor mat for the dogs to have on the porch when it gets warmer.

17  A brain slug (made of my own free will) -- PATTERN LINK ADDED in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Mrs. Awesome_Pants on: February 12, 2011 03:34:55 PM
All my Christmas gifts were made this year, and I'm finally getting around to posting pics.  One item I'm particularly proud of is the amigurumi I made for my 9-year-old brother, a brain slug from Futurama.  

I made a tie by attaching an extra-long length of yarn to the bottom, since it was way too heavy to attach to a headband, and he wouldn't have worn that kind of "girly" stuff, anyway.  I was worried he wouldn't like it, but he wore it most of the day and wouldn't even take it off for dinner  Cheesy

And he tried to make the dog wear it, too.  Roll Eyes

18  A very late Christmas gift in Crochet: Completed Projects by Mrs. Awesome_Pants on: January 21, 2011 07:24:53 AM
So, about two years ago I started on an afghan for my fiance.  It was going to be a bed-sized gray and black thing, and about twenty rows in I abandoned it and restarted completely.  At last, the finished project is done.  Finished it this morning.  It's now a lapghan, and the man loves it.  He and the cat are cuddled with it as I type Smiley  I'm pretty proud of it myself; unfortunately my terrible pictures don't do the colors justice.

I used Red Heart because it's durable and washable.  It's a gigantic granny square since I'm too impatient to make a ton of little ones and then sew them together. 

I got the pattern for the solid square out of a library book, but this http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2008/01/solid-granny-square.html is pretty much the same.  There are also good videos on Youtube is you search "solid grany square."

Happy hooking!

I got a chance to take a pic and post it sooner than I thought Smiley  This is the second rug I've started, along with the coordinating fabric, which hasn't been converted to yarn yet.  I put the coke can next to the ball of white yarn for size reference.  It's been downsized a LOT already.  Weighs at least 5 pounds.

I'm having a lot of fun with these rugs, though I wish I could find some darker cotton fabric.  T-shirts would take forever and I don't have enough anyway, and I couldn't get denim strips to tear properly.  Sigh. 

How's progress for everyone else?

We received from Stephanie Gravatt the other day Smiley  Everything was great!

She crafted for my mother and my fiance, and both loved their gifts!

My mom got a wonderful keychain with birthstone charms of us four kids and an embroidery hoopla (that I forgot to get a pic of Sad )

She really loved it, and I thought it looked great.

Devin is a big nerd in general, so he got these Star Trek themed etched mugs.  He's been using them for everything but beer -- green tea, milk, kool-aid...

I don't think he'll be using any other glasses for a while LOL.  Thanks a bunch!!!
