I didn't make my self imposed deadline for posting pics from my Fantastical Package from Jenleahlynn!

Talk about naughty...

My house is Slytherin, and I got all sorts of goodies!

First up, this superb wooden wall hanging!

Next, Love this bookmark (turn to page 394) and Hair Chopstick Wands!!!!
(Which I wore at my dance performances both Thurs evening and today! The pic doesn't do these justice as they have green globe marbles at the top!)

Then...then, this homage to my favorite character/creature...SNAPE!

I have it now surrounding a candle!

Thank you for another wonderful swap, Jenleahlynn!
And thank you Mistress Jennie for being an amazing Hostess!!!!

Amazzzing gallery!

I should add some amazingness to it as well....

Renstar's super badges arrived the other day and I finally can post!

The Unicorn is so cool. I LOVE white on white things!
My achievement was "I was a Unicorn today", which means to me that I was mystically special.

The heart is to comment on me being "heart healthy".
I was recently diagnosed with super high cholesterol and just having gone through a bunch of heart attacks with my dad in the last 5 years, I thought I'd nip this in the bud before it gets out of control.
I pinned this badge right away on the sun visor in my car, it's so great!

Thank you Renstar!!!!!

Woo Hoo!
I get to post the first pictures in the gallery!

Yesterday, I received a fantastic package from Jenleahlynn. I was so thrilled at what I found!


First up, a Belly Dance Hip Scarf!

I teach a beginner Belly Dance class...when the time comes to teach walking hip drops, I always play the Imperial March. This will be PERFECT to dance in!

Next, a chain belt to wear with the hip scarf...or as an amazing long necklace!

All the charms are shrinky dink-esque. I LOVE SHRINKY DINKS!!!
My faves are the Falcons...because Han.

Then such a clever necklace!
She included 2 extra charms to fit whatever mood I might be in that day. So awesome!

Sorry about the quality of my pics. The natural light here at the North Pole has taken a nose dive. Wink

This package rules, as do you!

Great Pic Ms Abbeeroad!
I had to share with you all something that someone sent me on Facebook along the same lines:

I'm checking in. I've got my "big" project done and have all the materials ready to make everything else. Yay!

That is the most awesome dress ever! Now I need to scurry to Kohls....

I received an amazing package from CraftyMamaBee today, which happens to be my wedding anniversary!!!
Best day ever!

I'm gonna lead off with my brand spanking new Walking Dead Hip Scarf to wear for Belly Dance! 
With a close up of the extra fabric she gifted me! So when I dance super stiff I can totally say it's my homage to walkers....
(I've been wearing this around the house most of the afternoon)

Then, she made me some adorable Walking Dead Bookmarks! Super Clever!

And to round out the Daryl Dixon love...

This Paper Art is so rad. It's 3D in such a cool subtle way. I can't wait to find the perfect place for this!

And then she sewed me up a notebook cover to make any scruffy-looking nerfherder (who's scruffy lookin'?) jealous:

Speaking of Notebooks...

She altered one for me in the Banner of House Clegane!

In the Game of Thrones you win or you become a gravedigger on the Quiet Isle just healing up from an injury and definately *not die*...
(please don't make him dead in the show.....)

Thanks again CMB for being an amazing partner! I can't say enough how much I enjoy swapping with you!!!
Those Hawaiian post-its are adorable!

Well Blair I'm sitting on my couch brainstorming and trying to find something to watch on one of the movie Channels and BAM! Captain America Winter Soldier is on (I've never seen it - til now) and I'm texting my uber geeky gal pal all kinds of questions about him! Crazy timing!

But on another note I think I have some solid ideas!

Hooray! Fate is a funny thing sometimes. Now I think I should watch it again too knowing that you're being introduced to it. I'm very happy you have a gal pal to confer with. I bet she's awesome...Marvel Movie fans are fun! (say that 10 times fast)

I am going to start researching Walking Dead Belly Dance Attire immediately!  Grin

You just made me shed some tears on behalf of aweome things!

I have 2 definite ideas and the material is all set aside and ready....
Now to stew on the other 10 initial brainstorms that won't get out of my head.

And I just needed to get *this* out of my system....

It's my special "Craftster Swap Notebook"!
All my notes and brainstorms since 2011 are in it!

I got a plethora of amazing things from SonjaBoo yesterday!
I'm still gushing about it...

Here's a group shot (missing one thing)

And the one missing thing from the group shot is An Amazing Woodland Wreath!

Just look at all the tiny woodland magic! I'm such a sucker for red and white polka dot mushrooms.  Wink

Speaking of being a sucker for things...

From the show "Psych" our heroes, Shawn and Gus, tell each other in various ways to in fact Suck it. this made me giggle with glee! I think I have just enough room on the Hoopla wall beside the psych hoop Averia made me years ago! LOVE!
The Fabric Flower Pin is so adorable and the shade of red is perfect for me.  Cool
There's also a Gonzo Necklace Pendant and it's already been strung and I'm wearing it right now! I think I'll have chicken for dinner. Not Camilla though, that would be cruel.

Next, my Invisible Jet will have to be parked in the garage as I will be spending my day hanging my new Crafty Cave sign!

I've been calling my craft room The Crafty Cave due to
1. It's in the basement and doesn't get much natural light.
2. It would give me the excuse to exclaim Batman-Style "To the Crafty Cave, Old Chum!"
I'm dying over this sign!
SonjaBoo also made the coolest Wonder Woman Notebook. It's in my bag already.
Then some amazing tape! I've been collecting all sorts of tapes lately. I should display them somewhere....Holy Tape Batman, another project!

Some insanely amazing extras:
Girl Scout Badges, An envelope full of zippers from her horde, and Belly Dancing Trims!
These will get LOTS of use!

Lastly, a beautiful Tea Wall Art that goes with my kitchen impeccably and 2 Prayer Flags!

I can't wait to string the Flags with my growing collection. They are LOVELY!!!
The Wall Art is crazy touching. SonjaBoo is so talented and this is right up my decorating alley!

Thanks ever so much, SonjaBoo, for being my partner.
I really loved crafting for you and am really happy to have made a friend!

Yesterday I got the goods from IsikkahJai.
I was so impressed with the awesomeness I found within!

There are 3 major items in this picture.
A beautiful Lannister Crochet ruffle scarf, Lady of the Light Veil Hip Belt, and Stark Black Lace and Zipper Wrist Cuffs!

I requested some belly dancing items as I'm trying to build up my costume arsenal.
I took the pictures after Dance Class last night and the other dancers were crazy jealous.
One even threatened to mug me for the Veil Belt!  Wink
I love how it goes perfectly with my green Harem Pants!

A Tyrion Puzzle! with a cool dragon scale Clutch!

Too clever by far...just like My Tyrion.  Grin

An Icy Tree of Life Pendant to always remind me Winter is Coming!

This is really cool! (get it? HA!)

And speaking of Winter is Coming, all sorts of supplies to get me ready for it!

I giggled at this so much. Super clever!

Thank you so very much, IsikkahJai!
I sincerely love everything you sent!!!

My esteemed partner, IsikkahJai, received a while back and I thought I'd share with you what I made!

First up: Rhaegal Dragon Mitts!

I crocheted some crocodile stitch fingerless mitts for these and to get the "copper underbelly" I weaved in a novelty "yarn".

Next: To Be Used in case of...Others
Sadly, the jar didn't survive the trip from the North to the Westerlands...But thank goodness the dragonglass/obsidian is still in one piece!

Then: Dany and Khal Cache

This was my first-ish foray into painting/wall art. I have one big "oopsie", but I'm not going to drink the Tears of Lys over it or anything.
Dany and Khal Amigurumis....they were a strange journey. I couldn't quite find a pattern I liked and the one I ended up using made this gourd-type shape, so I ran with it.

And then there's: Arya Laughing at the Hound Mug

I've seen the first 3 seasons, but read all the books: So when IsikkahJai said one of her favorite scenes was when Sandor/Arya reach The Vale and are told they won't find what they're looking for...I ran to the Youtube...then Arya laughs...the Hound looked so dejected! Love this show to bits!!!

And lastly: Tyrion Silhouette Hoopla
Hand stitched! Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have. I'd forgotten to snap one with the rest of the items! EEK!
I found this pic on my phone which I texted to a friend. I had to crop the image as the other whitish hoop is for the IYP Swap. Wouldn't want to spoil a surprise!!!

Psst! IsikkahJai, if you have a better/more clear pic please post it!

I sure am glad I was able to make this stuff for IsikkahJai! She was super-fun to craft for!
