Oh boy oh boy!  I got the BESTEST OTT from Loves2experiment!!!!

I am an avid birdwatcher, plant person, go ramble around in fields somewhere kind of person.  And I used to work for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) 's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, where I supported - among others - scientists who studied the lives of octopus species in the Pacific Ocean. My team was the one who first documented inter-species sex, which was thought never to happen in octo circles. Swingin' octos!

SO. Having set the stage, let me share with you ..... my OTT FIELD JOURNAL, with a first sighting: a felted tufted titmouse! Smiley

Isn't that awesome-sauce?!?

Loves included both plain AND graph paper:

And did all the binding and creating herself:

Isn't this octo just the happiest fella?

And look! Another entry to put into my field journal: The Great Gray Floof Monster!

Another note: this is the perfect size journal to take with on road trips, as it fits my OTT glove compartment in my OTT car!!   Wink

Loves, this journal is splendid. It's beautiful and functional! I can't wait to start filling it with notes and diagrams and descriptions of wacky things I find in the great outdoors! Once again you got me PERFECTLY with your item.  Cheesy  I've already had to fend off one attempted theft last night at geeky pizza night, and I expect a few more attempts to be made tonight at geeky picnic night.  Shocked Shocked Grin

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

tracethekat sent me the most adorable flask stuffie.  Check it out!

As you can see, he is already happily sitting on a lab table in my classroom.  The kids named him Erl since he's an Erlenmeyer flask.  Thank you, tracethekat!

Here is the super cool necklace that I got from audio-astrophysics!
This side has the atomic number and weight of my favorite element, Potassium

This side says SPACE, because I like space! *pushes up glasses*

And it's bustin' out sciencey vibes all over because it looks like a microscope slide to me.  I love it!  Thanks!

I received my package today from enginerdlisa.  It is an awesome nerdy business card wallet!

It has circuits on the outside, which fits me perfectly cuz I'm an electrical engineer.

It's girly on the inside!  Love the colors she picked out!!

Lastly, she sent this awesome card with a Big Bang Theory theme:

Thanks for this great swap!!

Shocked  That's right!  She sent a lovely assortment of cards, envies and gift tags...handpainted to resemeble chromatograms Cheesy  And she even wrapped up the paper goodies in a handpainted piece of fabric (which I will use as a scarf, no doubt Wink).  Enough rambling...here are the pictures and close-ups of the stuff she sent!

I got my package from Flower, which is fantastic! Prepare for the eyeball-y goodness!

All together...my specimen far of eyeballs and my eyeball ring!

My ring:

And my eyeballs out of the jar. The green one is a cat's eye (I had to ask) which I totally thought was a diseased or zombie eye. Whoops. Nifty either way!

Thanks Flower! Everything is great!

I received from ckchan today.  I got a really awesome mario bros bracelet.  I couldn't stop giggling after I opened it, I love it so much.  She painted these designs, and they are perfect, I'm in awe of her skill.  The little wooden coins are so light I don't even feel like I am wearing a bracelet.

One of the best swap packages ever!

I have been spoiled by Yarn or Fabric!  Check out my goodies!

Here's my one tiny thing, plus a cool bonus!
Yarn or Fabric made me a charming wallet/coin purse!  It's got a craftybrain diagram embroidered on it...which is so perfect for me (as my dear partner knows!)...I am one of those crafters who has to try every craft out there.
Also, she made a bonus item for my little geek in the making...Meet the mad scientist/crazy guy!  He's very durable which is good because my little man likes to chew on the hair!

Close up of the wallet!  The lining fabric has buttons.  The fabric on the back pocket has pins on it!
