Cthulu is an amazing piece!

How do you get stained glass to ship through the mail without massive breakage?

wow devilxkat!  your stained glass pieces are amazing!  The color is so brilliant and I bet it is spectacular with the sun shining through!

love the little cupcake! He looks like he belongs on the kitty head!

sorry, not sure where I got the fabric for the pillows--I am doing some major destashing and had the fabrics hiding in some far away bin!  Glad you like them--and again, hope you had a wonderful birthday!!

Love the stained glass!  I've always wanted to try my hand at it, but I think it requires actual artistic ability (which I lack!) 

I've seen the skull/bandana fabric at Joann ... cute!

Ah, thanks for posting a pic Devilxcat! I (finally) got my photos to upload.

Here's Cthulhu in action - once I got him open I immediately hung him up:


And the fabrics (Did you stalk me? Cause the scarecrow and bat/bat-signal are waaay too perfect.)


Thanks Devilxcat! I absolutely love it and can't wait to use the fabrics for something cool.

(She shipped it sandwhiched between cardboard which was wrapped in foamy/plastic wrap, heavily wrapped with packing tape. though I'm still amazed my post office didn't manage to hurt him - though I suppose nothing can hurt Cthulhu!)

Now I don't need to be so jealous of all the great birthday gifts you are all receiving.
Ah!!! barbolot has spoiled me....

Here is the box on first opening:


And all the wonderful things inside:
As promised a beautiful new wristlet (love the color), and some be-yootiful hair clips - not just one but FOUR! My husby says I look like a flamenco dancer when I wear the big red one. I love them all!!!
She also gave me seeds for my new garden (I'm thinking raised beds).  Tomato, lettuce & bell peppers, and starter pots for basil and chives - sooo cute! And yes, be jealous, awesome crunchy spicy homemade caramel popcorn! barbolot, I'll need the recipe because it was gone the first day!


And the extra surprise was inside the wristlet... don't know how you knew I love ginger!
I am sososososo happy, thank you you made my day!


And here, finally, is my new portal to you all: my new netbook!

LOL!  NO, I didn't send the netbook!  It was just a good mail day/week(?) for puamelia, I guess!  Wink  I'm so glad you liked everything!

The popcorn is AMAZING, and so, so simple.  I add the maximum amounts of the salt & cayenne... (you'll see what I mean when you look at the recipe....)  Here's the recipe.  Enjoy!  Cheesy
