Here is my wonderful parcel I received from xMisfitMommiex. I got it on Monday but my camera and internet have not been cooperating. I reccomend that none of you ever move to CT. I've spent my whole life in Australia and only ever experienced one power outage. Since i've been here it's been at least once a month. This week we had no water for 3 days, no power for 2, no internet for most of the week.... Anyway enough ranting. Should post before it decides to 'break' again.

INTRODUCING.... *drum roll please*


Kiki likes strawberries, catching butterflies, dancing, listening to music and shopping. It sounds like we will get along very well!! And i've already promised her a trip to Chicago before Christmas since she wants to travel!

Kiki also came with raspberry lip balm, yummy smelling boby mist and a cute pokemon(?) toy. The kids think it's Bowser from Mario Smiley

Kiki playing

Reading craftster. She's scared the internet is going to stop working at any moment.

thankyou so much xMisfitMommiex. i love her!! although I'm sorry your baby had to part with her.

Name: Gloria Von Grouch
Favorite Saying: "Sucks to be you!"
Favorite colors: red and black
Favorite movie: Harold & Maude
She doesn't talk much
so I can't tell you much more
It's up to you
if you want to know more

This is my pile of goodies.
~a scarf (piled up in the pic. i took one of me wearing it but i look hideous!)
~ 2 lollipops on BONES!!  Grin
~ 2 plastic skulls
~ .....and of course, the wonderful Miss Gloria Von Grouch!

As you can see, she has tattooed arms (and also elbows, thanks to a stitch right there)

She also has leg tattoos and a removable petticoat

It should also be noted that she has super-sexy hair (black with a red fringe and a few longer red streaks framing her face) and an awesome velvet dress, finished with lace on the hem and a cute patchwork bit.

She has settled in well here in Australia. She found my office a little bit overwhelming but seemed a lot happier once we got home and she could llay on my couch perving on Jensen Ackles in an article in 'BLACK- Australian Dark Culture'

I am absolutely, totally, crazily in love with her!!!! I would have been chuffed with anything I received because I think there's something very special about handmade items but Oh Em Gee.... Half Pint did such an INCREDIBLE job! i would like to say A HUGE THANK-YOU TO HALF-PINT FOR BEING MY SWAP PARTNER!!!

Oh, and the bio came in a really funky little envelope and the whole parcel was wrapped in what looks to be really pretty wallpaper of some kind but I don't have pics of them!

So i received yesturday and goodness me i am in love!
i wanted something to snuggle with because when i signed up for the swap i thought my harry bear (the teddy bear i've had since i can remember) was lost forever. well thankfully my harry bear was recovered and now he has a wonderful friend vee to keep him company huzzah!

picture time:

Vee arrived in her space ship all safe and sound.

finding her new home on my bed quite comfy

look at how long her arms are! quite excellent for snuggle times

her butt is detachable. a cute feature  Cheesy

making friends with harry bear. (she got hungry while they were hugging and started munching on her hand and harry started giggling)

so a bit of background about her:
Vee is from the planet warble. one day she was searching through space to find star shakes which are particularly yummy. her space ship broke and she plummeted to earth to land in Battina's ivy plants. She stayed with Battina for awhile, but her son kept trying to eat Vee's eyes  Sad for her immediate safety she was sent down here. she is 265,000 years old but plans to live many more lifetimes. her favorite color is blue (which is mine as well!) she's a gemini and she is allergic to stoves, corn muffins, and acorns. they don't have legs on planet warble so they have to hop around! adorable.

thank you so much battina! Vee is amazing!!

"Helper Cat" aka Ceefer, doing what she does best, "helping"

ohh pink  Wink shortly after this pic was taken Ceef attacked the box, we (my other half and I) think its cos everything was slightly scented and Ceef knows perfume=bad lmao

see? shes trying to eat the tissue paper (yes I open the box upside down, shush)

and she did eat some of the box  Roll Eyes you would think I didnt feed her

Meet Arthur McFudge! hes a Norwegian Ridgeback Dragon  Cheesy

heres a better shot of him, isnt the wool awesome? It realy does look like scales

and a blury action shot of Ceefer unraveling my crochet  Roll Eyes she got squirted with the spray for that and glared at me for aaages

glamour shot here people, me in my work clothes  Grin oh and what does everyone think of the hair? I dyed it brown from the brown/auburn it naturally is... the natural stuff was starting to turn ginger  Lips sealed but Ive noticed that the red is starting to shine through the brown  Roll Eyes Ill never win

Arthur warming himself up by the fire

checking out Spunky (aka Princess)

hanging out in my peace lilly (that wont stop growing!!!)

admiring my painting (yup I painted that  Tongue)

and finally looking through my books (double stacked  Roll Eyes I think I should buy another bookcase)

I love Arthur  Kiss thankyou

ohh better not forget this Cheesy its a squished sheep coaster  Tongue how awesome

and heres his bio too peeps, hes hopefully coming to town etc with me today, my Dads ok with my crazyness (he says its cos Im creative and all creative people need straightjackets  Roll Eyes)

Name: Arthur McFudge

Age: 83

Date of birth: 21 January 1925

Species: Norwegian Ridgeback Dragon

Where are you from: London (despite being a Norwegian breed, I was hatched in Hackney, East London

Weather on your planet?  Um, planet London?  Awful, although not quite as bad as it is in the rest of Britain

Allergies? Tomatoes, they make my scales really itchy

What food do you eat? I like people, but eating them gets me into trouble, so I try and steal roast chickens from the various East London street markets when the stallholders arent looking

Fave colour? Purple.  No, yellow.  No, purple.

Likes? Harry Potter, opera (especially Verdi, oh yes), chocolates with soft centres, reality TV

Dislikes? Being short sighted (they dont make glasses that fit round my ears properly), noisy children, wome wearing really strong perfume as it makes me sneeze

Fears? Setting things on fire when I sneeze, as it makes me really unpopular

Issues? (ie are you insecure etc?)  I worry that people wont like me if I accidentally breathe fire on them.  I dont mean it.  Usually.

Hopes and dreams? I would love a small part in an opera, perhaps in the chorus.  Especially if it was in Madame Butterfly, that would be fantastic.

Idol? Luciano Pavarotti

Are you a goodie or a baddie? Im insulted you feel the need to ask, but Im definitely a goodie.

How do you feel about chickens?  See above comment re East London Markets and roast chicken.  If you mean actual living chickens, then I am a big fan.  I had a pet rooster till I sneezed on him and he became a roast chicken

Do you have an accent?  Im from Hackney, innit.  Im a cockney.

Any other useful info?  I would like to travel and see a bit of the world.  Perhaps whoever I live with next could send a few photos of me in my new home to the lady who I used to live with?

I received today from Bubblegum_Phoenix, and what a brilliant package I got!

I am a huge Elvis fan, and I opened my package to find this.  I actually squeaked, my workmate sitting beside me thought something was wrong!  Please note that as I type this post, I am actually listening to Elvis music and singing along loudly (my poor husband has had to put earphones on to drown out the noise).

Meet Mini Elvis!  Here he is in his very own box.

Here he is outside his box, he was very glad to get out so he could sort out his quiff and shake out his flares.

He came with his very own guitar! 

Here he is playing his guitar. 

Here's the back - look at his cool hairdo.  And his collar. 

Then there's another little box.  What's this?  It looks like a Gameboy.

Oh look - it's Tetris stitch markers!  And crochet ones too - the very thing I needed as I normally use a bit of scrap yarn.  I will be putting these to use this very night. 

Ooh chocolate!  Peanut slab - we don't have that here.  I wish we did, but then I'd probably be twenty stone if we did because it's gorgeous.  There were three bars... but not for long.

All my stuffs.  Including a postcard of where Bubblegum_Phoenix lives and where I have now decided I want to live too, because it looks amazing.

I was so lucky to get such an awesome partner, and I can't believe how right she got everything, I absolutely love it all! 

Mini Elvis has a bio, I've asked Bubblegum_Phoenix to PM it to me so I can post it for you all, it's so funny  Grin  But I know Flowerwitch had something to do with that...  Grin

Edited to add: Here's Mini Elvis' bio, sorry it's taken me a while to add it...

Date of birth: Mini Elvis 16/082008, Real Elvis 08/01/1935
Species: Tribute Stuffie
Where are you from?  Graceland! well actually Greymouth, heh
Weather on your planet? Sometimes sunny!!  Sometimes wet!!
Allergies: The washing machine, Tom Jones tribute stuffies, Jazz
What food do you eat? Banana and peanut butter sandwiches!  Yum
Favourite colour: White, black and gold
Likes? Rock and Roll, platinum records, 60s music, shaking my hips (uh huh)
Dislikes? Tom Jones tribute stuffies, Barbie turning me down again
Fears: Stuffie eating dogs, being stuck in a small box with Tom Jones tribute stuffies, having my hair messed up
Issues: Im the mini King of Rock and Roll baby!  I have no issues
Hopes and dreams? To one day have a tribute stuffie of my own and to release my own record
Idol? The King himself Elvis Presley
Are you a goodie or a baddie? Im whatever you want me to be baby! ☺
How do you feel about chickens? They taste pretty good fried and slapped between two bits of bread and slathered with mayo
Do you have an accent? Uh huh, just like the King baby
Any other useful info? Im the mini-King baby!  I just want you to love me tender and let me be your teddy bear, I love to sing and shake my hips, uh huh!  Im asking you baby, dont be cruel cos you can be my good luck charm, Im a hunk of burning love and you can be the devil in disguise, Ive been stung before by a hard headed woman and it made me feel so bad but a fool such as I knows that shes not you, its now or never and I cant help falling in love, my latest flame its the wonder of you that makes me surrender Im all shook up loving you so lets do the jailhouse rock together, uh huh!

Mini Elvis has left the building.
