I have finally gotten around to posting the pictures of the fantastic package that Winged_Soul sent me! Cheesy Sorry for the delay! I received it Monday, but I am getting ready to start my job and had to do a Nursing Delegation class!

Here are the pictures!

Everything was inside this absolutely WONDERFUL treasure-chest box! It looks small in the pictures, but it is actually Huge!! I squealed out loud, since I have been trying to find something to store my Embroidery things in, and this is perfect for it! I love boxes! There are tentacles going all around the box!

And on the bottom, the Octopus!  Grin

Inside the box was:

A CTHULHU HAT! I am a huge, huge, HUGE fan of Cthulhu, and the fact that I now have him in hat-form is awesome! Hats are my absolute favorite accessory! I have a ton and I wear them all the time! And the hat is super soft, too!

Next was a little octopus box, which I thought was adorable! Inside of that, there were two Octopus rings! But I couldn't seem to get a good shot of those! :/

Finally, and I couldn't believe it:

Tentacle JEANS! I am in absolute love with these! They fit perfectly! I wore them around yesterday and I got a ton of compliments on them!! They are fantastic! It is pretty perfect, because one of my pairs of jeans has gotten a bit too worn out! Now I have a new pair!

Also, not pictured, Winged_Soul added a bag of chocolates, but those have since been eaten and I was unable to take a picture! They were absolutely delicious, however!!

Thank you sooo much, Winged_Soul! You were an awesome Swap Partner!!

So I got my amazingly awesome package from Alexandra-the-great yesterday!! I was so exhausted from work, but it made me so happy!!! I took pictures today!! Prepare for awesomeness!!
First off I about went into a wiggling spazz fit when I saw these two little guys. Meet Hector:

And meet Cleo:

They are so precious and I love the colors!! This might make me start crocheting. I hugged them.

But wait there's more!!! She also made me a needle holder for my knitting needles which I really really needed! She did an amazing job embroidering this! I'm so impressed!!

And a close up of the squid.

And here it is in action:

She also sent me some really cute octopus stickers! Here is the whole group together:

Overall this is a super awesome package!!! I love it!! I couldn't be happier!

So I received the most amazing package from goldsheepbowl this week - and on my birthday- perfect timing!  Cheesy I feel like I got totally spoit and LOVE everything...I don't think I can pick a fav.

The first thing I opened was a fast food container (such a cute idea!) and inside...this sushi necklace...(I love sushi)..

Next thing I came to were these tentacle earrings...so nicely made...

As if that wasn't enough tentacle based jewellery fun, I then got to this necklace...

Which is HUGE and I just love it!! I just need to get enough courage to wear it to work now  Cheesy

Next was this phone case, which my new phone fits in very happily...

I love the material..so fun. So next, I love all things vampire related, so an Octopire brooch is just about the cutest thing ever..

Next was an adorable hoop...the very first addition to my new hoopla wall  Smiley

And then there was more (I know!!)...2 amazing paintings, I haven't decided where these are going yet, but I love them...

Thank you soooo much - everything is perfect!

shadowstealer's package has made its way down the Pacific coast, and I now present to you the cephalopodery I have received....

Two paintings, each one on 9x12 canvas board:


The octopus was done freehand; the squid was a "failed" image transfer she saved by painting over the lines.

A strand of chainmaille (about five inches) in an intricate pattern called...Octopus Lace!  I really like her use of the two colors, which I think both highlights and enhances the detailed design.

And a few pages of antique oceanic graphics, including the squid image which became one of the paintings.

The paintings are currently on display in my sea-themed bathroom:

Thanks for crafting for me, shadowstealer!

I got my stuff today!!!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

The postman actually almost lost it, because I missed it yesterday and had to go pick it up this morning. Took him ten minutes to find it. Tongue

Anyway! LEWTZZZ:

Super cute Little Mermaid skirt! It's my favorite disney movie~ Cheesy

detail of squid applique on the skirt!

Hairbow! I'm wearing the skirt and the bow right now~ Eeeee. xD

Adorable coooooastersssss. This squid is my favorite. <3

Octopus and pompoms! I haven't decided what to name him yet. He came with a cute story too, but I couldn't get a good picture of it.

Everything is great!! Thank you soooo much banana_bomb!

Hope for pictures of my stuff soon, all the ones I took got deleted on accident. Sad

I figured I'd post a few of the pictures I took of the swap I sent. I didn't get any of the frame, though Sad

I've actually used this painting to make some really neat andy-warhole type graphic arts.

This is the very first amigurumi I have ever done. I have since made several more. Jelly fish are fun, you don't actually have to work from a pattern. I just winged it.

I'm addicted to painting on fabric now. I actually ended up making a gnome painted plushie for the gnome swap because this turned out so well.

About a year ago I made a blue one of these guys.  It was a hit, and every one seems to love it.  This is the second one I've ever made, so it's pretty unique. I think it kind of looks like Cthulu.

So I have the best swap partner EVER!  Grin I got my package today, and because I couldn't wait to get it off my porch, my dogs caused a commotion waking up my son and cutting into my valuable peace and quiet time. But it was soooo worth it! Thanks so much Mizz Kodak!

A super cute apron!

An awesome tote

The cutest cross stitch for my son (the glass broke but that's easily fixable!  Smiley )

And then, a cute decoupaged composition book (I was actually in the market for a new knitting notebook and she didn't even know!) A knitted octopus pillow guy (so soft) and the neatest fish (I'm assuming because I'm a pisces) along with some tats (which my son loves!) and a jar, that I presume has a cephalopod of some sort, but the water got murky Undecided. Still awesome though!

now I have major swap anxiety...not sure if mine's going to measure up! Thanks again for everything!
