I just opened my package from Lilak Tygress and boy, is it amazing. Just what I needed after some bad news today.

First, a sea-salt scrub with almond and orange oil. It says EXFOLIATE! and has a picture of a Dalek in the bathtub. And there's a little TARDIS teaspoon to measure it!

Next is a TARDIS mug, which is so great at first I wasn't sure that she actually made it!

She made the weeping angel charm on this tea infuser, which I will probably use a lot for coffee and tea. I don't know if she used polymer clay, but it is very detailed.

And as an added bonus, chocolate-covered spoons with marshmallows with Gallifrey messages.

Thanks so much!

I also got my awesome package from Stove37!  I was so so happy with everything she sent!  I was really active in swapping on here in 2004-05 but I kept getting flaked on.  I had 4 swaps in a row and decided I was done.  So, Eiseldora said "you should get back on Craftster so you can do this Dr. Who swap" and I thought I'd give it another try.  I'm so very happy I did!  What a great experience. Smiley

I got this amazing TARDIS pouch (perfect stitching and fabric!! And she didn't even know I have a secret love of pouches - everything in my purse in containerized) holding a sewing kit which includes: Dalek measuring tape (feels like I better be careful not to measure incorrectly!), sonic seam ripper (very stoked) and an adorable adipose pin cushion!  I also got a very special extra, a drawing by her daughter, which made me also very happy.  I put it on my fridge with my Dr Who magnet.

and a little closer up

Thanks for the compliments on my choco 10.  Of course being me I've grumbled about his face.  Couldn't get it right then got wonkier in silicone then even wonkier in chocolate.  Ah well, I think I got his stance and suit right, so just bite his head off first and all will be well. Smiley  I was also a little sorry the chocolate bloomed (that whitish look chocolate gets when heated sometimes - doesn't hurt it, just looks weird). I'm including a pic of his bum, as that was the fuel for the discussion, and I liked the way it turned out...

I have these pics of the angel glass, though I'm not sure they're better.  I put a napkin in to try and make a dark background but it kind of made the scary angel look like he has an afro.  Oh well.

Also, since someone asked, I sculpted Tennant out of polymer clay, then cast two silicone molds (front and back) using the sculpture, then cast the chocolate in the silicone mold.  Yes, I realize this is a ridiculous amount of work to achieve a chocolate Dr., but I love a challenge. Smiley

I received from Honeybone! I love everything so much, thank you! Please forgive the not so great pics, my camera is packed away (I'm in the middle of a move) so I had to use my phone. As soon I find the camera I will add better pics.

Okay first was this awesome Silence box

Next were some very tasty sweets (they are almost gone already)

An awesome cross stitched 11 needlebook



Next is this beautiful ring (the picture does not do it justice). If you can't tell is an image of River,10, and Donna.

Then there was this friendship bracelet. It is suppose to represent the TARDIS going through space. It's very pretty, I wish the picture would show the sparkle in it.

And finally these blue rose earrings. I LOVE these so much!

I really can't narrow down a favorite, thanks again Honeybone!

I received from Summer yesterday!! I arrived home from work and found this on my doorstep.

Awesome right?
So I opened it up...

A Tardis bookmark and a cute little card and then, the very best part!!!

Etched glass drinking glasses with two of my favorite Who villians!!!!!!! They are soooo awesome!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!! So there's a weeping angel and on the back it says "Don't Blink" and the other one is a cyberman and the back says "Delete!" They are so awesome. I was jumping and giggling with excitement when I opened it. Smiley

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!

OMG you guys, I received from dragonflyducky today and it is amazing and she is the BEST EVER and seriously, yay. Yay!

She made me a tiny Ten! Look at his adorable hair! And the shoes! And the glasses (which are removable)! And his adorable hair! (I'm really digging the hair.)

Also, there were adipose stitch markers!

Which is wonderful because I'm sort of addicted to pretty stitch markers.

Here's the lot of what was sent:

Paper Dalek! (Which promply replaced the Harry Potter bookmark that was in my current read.) She wrote her note on the back of the TARDIS.

I requested a tiny Ten for my incredibly awesome diorama for which I've made a weeping angel. Here's what it looks like now:

I'm eventually going to knit a TARDIS, but the note card is a great stand in!

(And seriously, did you see Ten's little cowlick?)

I made some ridiculous squealing noises when I opened this. Because it is amazing. Thank you so much dragonflyducky/Kerstin!!!

I have pictures of the wonderful item I received from Tabzilla.

Tabzilla sent me the most brilliant thing I could have, a book. As a child, I slept with my books, instead of dolls.

It is a proper little book with a reinforced spine and endpapers. Her work is great too. When I hold it in my hand, it feels like a brand-new book, the spine is still stiff. The best part? She is a librarian.

For her project, she knew I am impressed with drawings, so she found several wonderful fan art pictures, got their permission to use their art work, paired up pictures with quotes from Nine and Rose's (only) season.

Check out the Tardis/book.  Wink

It even has endpapers that I think look like a field of stars.

Front or book title page.

She did a great job matching different art work with quotes. Don't these two look like they could be having this conversation?

This page is special because of the font. This is a quote from a Dalek speaking to Rose. Since the Dalek is mostly machine, she made the font look mechanical. It sounds like a Dalek.

For the last picture, Tabzilla chose a picture that feels as if the two are looking off toward the future, but the quote is one of the last things Nine said to Rose.

'Rose, before I go I just wanna tell you- you were fantastic. Absolutely fanfastic. And d'you know what?
So was I!'

I simply could not have been better paired.

Thank you so much Tabzilla, I hope you enjoy your OTT as much I as I will.

Thank you so much Lilak Tygress and Mandymo13 for hosting! I can't wait for the next Dr. Who swap.

I just got the most awesome package from teamama today.  we agreed on the ott and an extra but she went above and beyond....

first this great little mickey bag... I love little bags so much, and she probably didn't even know that... and it's filled with candy!

Then a bigger on the inside Tardis bag... and trinket box with Amy in gallifreyian on the top...

And the bag opened up with come along pond on the back... and the goodies from inside the box.. an excellent doctor necklace, a dalek necklace that makes me smile so much.. and key earrings.

And my card, which is beautiful, and the front of my bigger on the inside bag, which is genius! 

Thanks so much Teamama you rocked it!

I received from Amymarie78 today!
I was pretty excited because I've been having kind of a crummy week, and just  yesterday I said to the hubs "Well that's ood... we haven't had any mail in a while!" (And yes, I did say "Well that's ood..." I say it a lot, he thinks it's funny.... I think it's hilarious Tongue ha ha)

What's even MORE ood is that the post carrier delivered this today, to our door (and rung the bell, which is mighty strange) and....

I got an Ood! Cheesy

I love the Ood ("Love a good Ood!")

For size:

Amy and I also agreed on an extra - and this one takes the cake!
A TARDIS notebook! (which, by the way, I immediately wrote "bigger" on the inside of the front cover... so now it has "bigger" on the inside Wink )

And I totally love this because I'm a musician and I'm always coming up with wacky little lyrics and poems and now I'll always have something to jot them down in! Perfecto!

and last I want you to see this fab little card that she sent as well: like I said, Amy's paper crafting skillz are AWESOME! Behold:

I got my package!
Thank you so much oodleboodle! I have definitely been needing some coasters, and was kinda sad I didn't do the mug rug swap, but lo and behold I got more than I would have in that! And it's Dr Who! lol

So, here is all of it wrapped up:

I got a journal! Oh, wait, it's a secret compartment! lol And 3 coasters! One of 10 (The tie), one of 11 (the bowtie) and the tardis!

And the inside:

And THIS is what was making my package smell so good! Homemade Jammie Dodgers! (I have to say these may have been the best part...and there is only one let as we speak because I had to share...Smiley )

Thank you so much, oodleboodle!

I received from Jullianna13 the other day and am finally posting pics. (Sorry, hubby had stolen camera and it took me awhile to get it back!) Wink

Prepare to be jealous! Here's the whole shebang:

There was a nice note, and then a Doctor Who mini coloring book:

A bottle cap pin (fob watch!) and a bracelet with 11 beads (one for each Doctor!)

A fabulous necklace with the Police box sign:

And finally, what I think is my favorite thing, a Tardis key with shrinky dinks!

Yay! Thanks so much Jullianna! I love everything. I can't believe we almost sent each other the same thing! Wink To be honest, I had a hard time sending you that watch.I wanted to keep it pretty bad! Luckily, I have supplies to make another. Smiley

Recieved my package from mightyminniemouse

one zippered pouch with Tardis design in beads
one wrist pin cushion
3 pins in pin cushion
3 bags of skittles (one fell off table when I was arranging photos)
1 nice hand written letter (not pictured)

Isn't it pretty?.

Thank you to my partner. I've already included the tardis pouch in my Knitted Bag of stuff.

I will use the pin cushion soon...maybe the universe is telling me to sew a bag like Teamama Cheesy

pjr107 is dealing with some personal stuff, so I offered to post pictures of what I sent her.

She said her favorite companion was K-9, so I made him for her.

And a top view of the control panel.

I also made a pencil/makeup case with a Tardis on it.

I hope she likes everything.
