Glad you liked it.

So happy the skirt fits I was ever so anxious about that.

Unfortunately the world appears to be against me and these photos. My computer won't allow them to load, my camera didn't want to take pictures, and now I've got stupid Strep throat so can't get to a decent working computer until Thursday evening.  Angry .

By Friday I should have pictures up. Fingers crossed.

The skirt style is SO friggin' cute! The other day in Sociology someone brought up The Little Mermaid and how after she wrote an essay on it and realized how terrible it is sociology, it's no longer her favorite movie. Some interesting stuff. ;P haha.

I love love loooove the skirt. And the main reason it's my favorite is for Ursula, because she is my favorite villain ever. I'm so sad that they don't have any villains walking around disney land... at least, none I saw. Maybe it's just Florida. At least I saw some on the floaaaats. xD

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 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!!
