Illiamdra, So glad you liked everything. The coaster are ceramic. I coated them with decoupage, matte finish, and acrylic sealer. You won't hurt them if you use them. We've tested some of our coaster before making yours. They are surprisingly durable.

The Jack cross stitch pattern was from a 2007 British Cross Stitch magazine. The tiles for the jewelry are bamboo. I included one cord thinking you could swap them out. I should really send a letter next time, sorry. The wood beaded necklace was my attempt at making something that looked like something Calypso would wear.

That is some amazing stitchwork! I love that the jack tones are all sepia-ish. The tiles are cool- that monkey just cracks me up!
Great package Grin

I received from silentblair Cheesy

I opened the package and saw this wonderful box with an image straight from my wist!

I opened it up and inside was not one but TWO Captain Jacks (Pirate jack and Torchwood Jack) and three of my favorite quotes! (Can you guess where the third one is from?)  I probably laughed on and off for 20 minutes much to the amusement of my husband.

Isn't the fabric just awesome?!
I also got a very cool Pez dispenser and a skull and crossbones charm that I plan on using in my pirate charm bracelet whenever I get around to it, lol.

I also got this wonderfully creepy hoop. So very suiting for the text, don't you think?

I was also lucky enough to receive a dreadlock from Jack himself! Very clever and not something I would have ever thought of doing!  I also received two absolutely GORGEOUS wrist warmer/hand flower thingies. They are incredibly soft and the knitting (?) is absolutely beautiful.

I included a linked image if you want to see a closeup on the warmers.

Thanks so much again for such an amazing package!  I love everything. Cheesy

I am so thrilled you liked everything Larissa-Rasputin!!!
The glove-lets are indeed knitted and the "quilted" stitch is one of my favorites.
The box I so loved, it was hard to send to you-but I'm glad I did because I too was giggling about the little story inside. Is Torchwood Captain Jack flirting and is Pirate Captain Jack a little peeved about it? Who knows? Also, I had a sneaky feeling you would appreciate the 3rd quote. My gamble paid off!

Again, I am so happy you liked the pirate booty!

Hehehe, love the box with the 2 Captain Jacks. Reminds me of how my friend used to think I was crazy because I called my long blue peacoat my captain jack coat until I finally explained to her that there's two captain jacks.
