Ooh, all these goodies in the gallery already! How cool!  Grin

I really love the crochet necklace (I've got to learn crochet!).

I got the most amazing package from Cheeco.  I am in love with everything she sent.  I feel so spoiled!

Catskin (Roughskin/ the princess in disguise) in her coat of 1000 animal skins was sent to stay with me.  On the way she picked up a few goodies.
First - here she is in a dress that sparkles like the stars.

the bag she picked up from the Goose girl:

Which is a lined, zippered pouch with an extra pocket on the back, and was filled with jewelry:

star earrings, a ring that fits perfectly(Catskin & bearskin), a broach (modeled by Catskin), and rose earrings from the sisters Snow white Rose red. 

Thank you so much for all the very cool stuff you made me.  I love it!

Lovely lovely poppet! Cheesy

I have pictures finally of the awesome amazingness that is Subee's package.  Seriously, I am feeling lower than the mud caked on my Converse for not posting sooner.

Firstly, I opened a box to find this:

A circular wooden box with an omg evil queen burned into the top!  Not only is it fabulous and functional (It will house my acrylics!), it also is delightfully campfire scented. Wink  It is BIG, easily 14" across.

Once I opened the box, I found a plethora of delights!

There were two packages containing these magnets:

(omg that is a terrible picture)

Clever clever Subee found German postage stamps with actual fairy tale art on them and reproduced them into magnets.  Crazy business!  Love it!  They're already spread across my fridge.

All those warnings I got to not eat that must have been about this:

The Evil Stepmother's own apple!  Delish!  I shall proudly display it with my stuffed Gene Simmons doll, I think.

Straight from my wist, Subee made me these awesome eyebally fingerless gloves!

Action shot:

She also made me a very cool crocheted eyeball, but my devil-spawn children were amusing themselves by tossing it at me and randomly holding it up against my arm and proclaiming, "I'VE GOT MY EYE ON YOU, MOM!!!!", and I think it may be under the sleeping toddler.  Trust me when I say it is awesome.  It even has red veiny bits.

Lastly and certainly the opposite of leastly, I found this incredibly awesome little purse/tote/bag:

Now.  A confession:  Not a purse person.  Seriously.  I usually just grab my wallet and phone and call it good since I don't have to tote diapers anymore.  NOT TODAY.  Today I happily loaded that bad boy up with my wallet and phone and random lists and sundries and proudly toted it around.  Three people tried to steal it.  The cross stitched illustration on the front makes me utterly giddy.

Subee, you are AWESOME.  Thank you so much for everything, sorry I suck so much, but if you're half as happy with yours as I am with mine, you will be ecstatic.  <3

I am so glad you like everything Cheesy

I can not take all the credit for the stamp magnets. I found the pictures HERE but my husband made the magnets.

I was worried about the box, that was my first try at woodburning. Though I have to say, I love it and plan to do a lot more.

I can't wait to get your crafty treasures, I've seen some of your stuff, and it rocks!!

So happy you like it Smiley

Oh, here is the eyeball:

I got my box from Themuppet today!
She made everything from the story "The Queen Bee" (yay)

The first trial is the pearls in the tree roots - for this she made me a GORGEOUS stain glass mirror

close up of the pearls

next came the bedchamber key - for this I got a truly wonderful chain bookmark

close up the key (terrible picture I know, but this the best of the terrible pictures :/

And last but certainly not least - The Queen herself!
A beautiful pincushion with two bees on her shoulders

close up of her hair, it is really stunning

Thank you so much, Themuppet, I LOVE everything!

Yay I'm so glad you like it all! 

Thank you for posting the eyeball, and I forgot to mention the delicious peach honey butter!  My kidlet ate a bunch of it on a bagel for breakfast this morning and was in giddy peachy delirium for a while.. lol!

Giddy peachy delirium - that's a good place to be Cheesy

Wham! Amazing package received from textilejnkie! Prepared to be jealous!!

First is JAM! It contains the blood from the "girl without hands" from her stumps. Also with the jar, are with beautiful paper with red apples in the corner. They're for the notes exchanged  under the shades of the orchard.

Next! She weaved these HERSELF! Crazy awesome! The pattern represents  Rose red's attempt to find a pure white rose on her bush!

AND THEN! Here's a lovely tote bag, with a embroidered and painted bird from the juniper tree! I absolutely love it and can't wait to show it off to everyone!

And these beautiful earrings and pendant are the gifts from Thrushbeard to his beggar bride. Sadly these photo's don't show the beautiful colour they are. They're a lighter green than what is shown!

Then to top it all off, I get to keep that wonderful apple stamp that graced the papers I got, and it represents basically all the grimms fairy tales. And then included with that is a bird stamp, for the bird in juniper tree!

Thank you Textilejnkie! LOVE EVERYTHING!!!!
