Ryoruki, I'm so sorry!

I got seven secrets yesterday, and then my internet connection went wonky and I couldn't post!  So I've read all the pages I missed yesterday but I don't have time to comment on everything; I'll try to do that at some point!  In the meantime, here are the secrets:

'When I was a little girl I used to make my Barbie & Ken have sex.'
I think everybody I know who played with Barbies did this. Cheesy

'i hate my best friend.  I want to bury him in the sand and wait for the tide to come in.'
I don't feel this way about my best friend, but I certainly have felt it about other people I am supposed to love.

'The 1st time I wear a pair of shoes I have to count the number of steps it takes to reach my destination.  The one time I forgot I broke my leg!  Now I'm scared not to.'
I used to have tons of things like that; you are not the only one!  But I'm really sorry you broke your leg.  NOTE:  This card didn't have a code on it, so sender, please contact an organizer!

'I'm terrified of DOGS...
ALL dogs
YES even your little dachshund..'
I used have a friend who was terrified of dogs.  He said he had a friend who had a little tiny dog that scared him to death.  He told funny stories about this itty bitty dog chasing him around the friend's living room, and he laughed himself, but as somebody (CrochetWitch?) said earlier, phobias are NEVER a laughing matter.  I used to know somebody who was completely, utterly, screamingly afraid of treefrogs.  It was incomprehensible to me, but it was a real fear to her, so I never made fun of her for it.  Don't let people make you feel bad because their bitsy doggie gives you the shivers!

'if anything happened to her i would kill myself'
I don't have a good response to this--not because I don't understand, but because I do.

'I want you so bad'
I can relate, anonymous Craftster.  (But ever since I got this secret, I've had the urge to go put on my Abbey Road CD. Cheesy )

'I STILL THINK ABOUT the $10 bill I didn't pick up.  That was four years ago.'
I don't think I've ever found a $10 bill, but I have a large repository in my head of random, sometimes petty, things I remember and think about and mull over.

I got another card today! I really like this one. Thanks for sharing!

[Somethings are secrets not because I wont tell but because the person doesn't listen.]

Boy, can I relate!  There are a lot of things in my life that are 'secrets' because either the person concerned doesn't want to hear it or because nobody cares enough to listen.  Thank you, person who made that card! 

I got another card today too:

The front says: 'I believe in love at first sight.'

The back says: 'I'd rather be naive than cynical.'

To whoever made this card, I love your card but even more I love what you wrote on the back.  I've been cynical and I've been not-cynical, and I'm a lot happier and I like the person I am a lot more when I'm not cynical.  I hope you are and do too.  (Please excuse my poorly structured sentences.)

I got my first card today!

'I amazed that my dad is still alive.'

Thank you, whoever sent that.  I don't know what your situation is, but I've felt that way too.

I think there should be an

I HEART Gizmonic club!!!!

I agree! She totally rocks! So, who is going to make Gizmonic-ettes buttons for us? Wink

I absolutely would if I had a buttonmaker! Grin  I got my Al-ette button yesterday too, and because Gizmonic is super-generous she included a couple of extra goodies as a co-organizer-thank-you package.  (Which totally was not necessary, Gizmonic, but I love you anyway!)  So I wanted to post pictures so that you can all see the awesomeness of the lovely and talented Ms. Giz. Wink

Everything (or almost everything) all together.  Flapper card, with my Al-ette pin on top of it (which is so blurry you can hardly see it; I'm not sure if that's due to the camera or my shaky hands), two sets of buttons with flapper-girl faces on them (which, coincidentally, I've been gazing at longingly in my local fabric shop for the last year!), and the awesome tissue holder she made.  The only problem is that I don't want to use it for fear of getting it dirty. Cheesy
[Not pictured: a chocolate Terminal Tower.  It was in my refrigerator, that being the only place I knew it wouldn't get knocked over and broken or eaten by my dogs.  That and it was the only space in my house free from crafting supplies. Roll Eyes ]

And a close-up of the tissue holder, with the package of tissue taken out so you can see the adorableness of the cat-print!

Isn't it great?  I love everything soo much, Giz, thank you!!  You are filled to the brim with awesomeness! Grin Grin Grin

Okay, finally, some pictures of the stuff Shazrasha sent!  There was a ton, so this is not all of it.  I'm setting up a Flickr account for Artie, and everything will be posted there eventually.

(Click on the links for larger shots.)

The packages:

The stuff in the box:

Artie's outfits (one for Maelstrom, plus something more formal for the wedding he went to):

Pins, patches, and toys:

The cover of the scrapbook (I'm still photographing the pages; those will be up in Artie's album shortly):

Artie just out of the box:

The stuff in the envelope:



The tea! and also Artie:

Artie made a production of making me tea when he got home.  The photo set can be seen here:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/artiefrog/sets/72157602000587105/

Sorry about the plethora of photos, but Shazrasha is an amazingly generous swap partner and totally brilliant. Grin  If it's any consolation, I'm on dial-up too. Wink

A finished Flickr album, complete with scrapbook pictures, will follow soon!

Sauron and I went hiking yesterday!  Teaser pictures:

Off the side of the Fall Creek Falls trail (that is, presumably, Fall Creek in the background):

...and having a sit down on the bench at trail's end, watching the waterfall.  You will notice that he stole MY sweater to use as a cushion! Roll Eyes Wink

I'm having a hard time not posting ALL my pictures, but here are a few teasers.

Sauron with his new friends.  The blue rabbit is Bobby, my oldest stuffy (you can tell by the amount of wear he's had Cheesy ), and the bear is Nigel.  You can't tell, because Sauron's head is in the way, but Nigel has a Union Jack patch on his chest.  So Sauron has fit in rather well, as his two new friends are another rabbit and another Briton. Smiley

Peering out of my oregano bush.  He appears to be plotting something, judging by that smirk.

We took a trip to the Coast yesterday (we're in Oregon).  Here he is checking out the Whale Watching Station at the Umpqua River Lighthouse, where the river meets the ocean.  We didn't see any whales, probably because it's the wrong time of year.  (Sorry for the bad lighting--it was getting dark by this time.)

I love this gallery!

Sauron arrived today, and he's already charming the socks off everyone he meets.

Here he is on my porch, minutes after arrival:

He arrived just in time to supervise the fencing of my yard this week.  He found the finished bit a good spot from which to survey his new domain.

I can't wait to get started showing him around!

Artie just left to visit Shazrasha!  I'm a little sad, but I'm really, really excited to get started.

Here's Artie on his last evening at home:

I sent him with just his contract and bio, with a short note for Shazrasha.

I would like to introduce to you all the newest member of my family!  I just got him today, and I've already hauled him all over the place with me (to prepare him for his upcoming travelling, you see Wink ).  His name is Artie.

(The colour is a bit off.  Artie's bright green with brownish spots and sort of teal-coloured feathery stuff on his eyes.  The second photo is closer to reality than the first.)
