There is a lot of beautiful body art here. It has been really inspiring to look though at other people's tattoos.

So here is mine. The words say "Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt" which is from Slaughterhouse 5 by Vonnegut and it also appears in the Breakfast of Champions by the same author. This quote just has a lot of meaning for me. The font was custom by my artist.

I am wearing a dress in these photos, I swear! haha.
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / "Sorry your car was stolen" gift on: May 20, 2008 06:03:20 PM
Uh...So the guy I am seeing just had his car stolen. Yeah...it was in front of my house when it went missing too. So I feel terrible. So awful. I have never ever had trouble with stolen goods in the two years I have lived here and now BAM a car gets stolen.  Angry

So I feel really bad and want to make/ give this guy a bit of something nice just to say "Hey, that sucks. I'm sorry some people are jerks". I do not want to go down the sappy gross pukey gift route as it is a new friendship thing.

I was thinking of making him a nice dinner......but that seems so trite. Then I thought maybe I could make him some cupcakes or cookies. But I don't know if that is too.....odd. A bottle of wine, maybe? I thought it would be funny to get a nicer bottle of wine and put a note on it that said: "I knew you wouldn't be driving for awhile so I thought you could put this to good use." haha. Maybe I'll go to the used book store and look for some of his favorite authors and make him a little card.

What do you think? Should I even bother?

Tisteeni sent me a wonderful second package about a week ago but this is the first I've had the time to upload pictures. Sorry my crafty friend!

Here is what she sent!

The letter and some postcards

Two picture frames she painted and decorated with shells, two rose candles ( they smell sooooo good! yummy!), and a chocolate bar. I think something weird happened to the chocolate during shipping because half of it was like...missing. hahaha THAT POSTAL CARRIER ATE MY CHOCOLATE!

A black purse with a lovely bunch of buttons (I love buttons!). It says "I am woman." I believe she free handed the painting which rocks because it is so good. I'm taking it to my feminist confrenence in June, everyone will be jealous!

This is a box and a fortune teller she got in China Town. It had a bunch of buttons in it. :-)

And drumroll please for my favorite item.

These are so beautiful. I put them on right away. I never wear earrings but she must have known I needed a pair because I just bought a brown dress for a wedding and was on my way to find some jewlery when I got this package. Seriously, this is the best swap ever. I love you tisteeni!!!
