Yay!  I'm glad that you like your package oddacity, 'cause I love my package that I got yesterday!

Here's a photo of Tommy's necklace dropped outside the "jungle room" aka my backyard garden.

It is a great likeness of Tommy's necklace, or is it really just a likeness?  We all dream, but do we really dream?

And next up we have the best t-shirt ever.
Here's a quasi-action shot of me in the shirt.  Ignore the weird "is this photo being taken face."

Here's a non-action shot so you can see how cool the design is.

And finally the best ever, Vince Doll!
here he is crowd surfing on some petunias, at least I think they're petunias.

Here he is in semi-profile in the jungle room, or in front of some basil

And here he is dressed as Old Gregg in his new home (my bookshelf) next to my Valentine's Day present from my mom, which very coincidentally is a gorilla dj.  His name is now Bollo.

And oddacity also sent me the link to the patterns she used.  I'm going to try to make him a Jacobean ruff out of coffee filters, and someday either before classes start again or at Christmas break I'm going to make him a tundra outfit.  I love my dear naive little prince of a blue boy.

This swap was the greatest.

I got my package from Amylouwho93 this afternoon!!!  Prepare your eyes for a photo feast.
Here's my package.  (The recipes are in the beautiful recipe box) A recipe box, resin Alton Brown jewelry and a yeast sock puppet.  I've named the sock puppet Ol' Yeasty.

Here's a closeup of the box:

It's really pretty, and way better in three dimensions.  It's even decoupaged on the bottom.  It lives on my counter now.

Here's a closeup of the Alton Brown resin jewelry Amylouwho made.  It is awesome, and it was her first time working with resin.

I'm going to wear them to the New York Food and Wine Festival and hope Alton Brown doesn't think I'm too much of a fanatic if I run into him.  Sorry no action shots.  On my days off from my job selling makeup and hair products I intentionally look like a bum.

Here are the crafted recipe cards she sent.  This is on my back patio (not on the sidewalk).

They are for melon sorbet, kale soup, salmon en papillote and angel food cake.

Here's Ol' Yeasty giving his coy model look:

Here he is looking at an apartment building/metaphorically into the future.

Everything was so perfect and wrapped beautifully.  Thank you so much Amy.

If you'll excuse me now, Ol' Yeasty and I have got to go make some Good Eats.

3  Chemical Symbol Baby Blocks in Knitting: Completed Projects by elleshellmo on: May 14, 2006 07:59:50 AM
I knit these for my chemistry professor and his wife who are having a baby.  Hopefully they will help the baby learn chemistry from the very begining.

The Chlorine and gold block is my favorite, I really think the duplicate stitch turned out well on that one.  They are about four inches tall, so that they're big enough to be safe.  I was inspired by a pattern in Knitting to Go, but I definitely didn't follow it since they suggested making a block entirely in ribbing and one entirely in seed stitch, both without letters, which I didn't want to do.
