Well, I feel like my package was totally inadequate and pathetic after seeing Phizzy's... Undecided 


No way! Your package was awesome and totally made my day! No pictures were taken last night because I happened upon something during my lunch break that I couldn't resist turning into a last minute crafted thingy-ma-bob. As soon as everyone sees your Anne Bonny shrine and that kick-ass notebook, people are going to be knocking your door down trying to invite you to the next dance Wink

ETA: I signed into craftster like 20 minutes ago just to send some PMs... I am supposed to be working!! What is wrong with me?!?! (Posting, posting, posting... keep them doggies posting...)

I got a wonderful package in the mail from Koi! There was a baggie bead soup, a ball of novelty yarn, a pair of earrings, a beaded watch, a crocheted headband and a pendant [? I'm not sure that this is what it was meant for but it's what I'm using it for!] It's all absolutely beautiful and I love it.

I took several photos and I don't have time to post them all here, so I'm posting this teaser:

You can see the rest of the photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thebon/sets/72157594364044022/

Thank you so much Koi, everything is so beautiful and so well-made!

Glad it all arrived safely, and that you like it all. It was a bit of a worry, being all along a similar theme. I loved making the little matchbox and book so much and it was perfect the way the idea came to me when I was out there. I was messing about looking at the notes and before I knew it I'd folded one into a book, just, you know, to see what it looked like Roll Eyes Then I realised it fitted perfectly into a matchbox that we had for burning mosquito coils...then I found the matchbox on the side of a road, and got ridiculously excited because someone had drawn a few lines on the side of it, which spurred me on to continue their artwork! Cheesy And voila, a shrine to Egypt was born!

I still have a few notes left so I think I might have a go at making a few more of the little books for holiday momento's.

Phizzy--your items are just full of detail and imagination!! Do you work with a microscope?
Nope, I don't actually do any of the work, I contract it out to the elves to do it for me Wink Actually maybe that's the reason I have such poor eyesight, all the squinting over artwork!

I love the fish cuff and the flowery headband that have been posted!

TheBon, that yarn is so beautiful! I'm going to have to hire me a knitter sometime and get me some of that.  Cheesy

Gorgeous yarn!  I could definitely be persuaded to knit more if I had something like that!!!
