I'm glad you got it and like it all!  It was my second time making a bag in that style, and every time so far I've needed my son to help me with the folding of it...I just can't seem to get it!   Tongue  And my DH actually found that nifty fabric that's in in the bag on the Spoonflower site...that's a fat quarter and it JUST was enough (hence, all the piecing of it...sorry....).

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

I've received!!! nostephot sent the most awesome package ever!!
so, without further ado, the awesomeness:
Theme 1: "Pixelated Fun"

it has a huge amount of awesome coasters from old school video games (both me and my SO are geeky like that, and we love everything!!) like Mario and Zelda, and 5 coasters representing the 5 choices in the Big Bang Theory's rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock, and and awesome 1986 Donkey Kong bookmark, and an epic (my friends have already tried to sneak it out the door!!). she also included an awesome cross-stitch pattern for me to do later, which shows the BBT's rock-paper-scissors game and it relativity between all the choices.
(whew! I'm already spoiled!)
Theme 2: "Geeky Pillows"

I've had these on my wist for a while... because I can't really sew pillows... they always pop their seams, and the stuffing comes out! but now I have them! they finally make it home to my couch after almost being taken away by a co-worker-who loves the mustache, and even has one tattooed on his finger-and now much geeky couch has a fabulous 'stache! She also threw in a floppy disk notepad, which has been absconded by the SO (who is a computer techie, and claims that it is "necessary" for him to have the notepad, for his "job"  Grin
Theme 3: "Louisiana"

Another loaded down theme, and a totally spoiled me!
it has two kitchen towels with crawfish on them (I love them crawdad's!), a bowl made out of Mardi Gras beads (genius! and already being used as a candy bowl!), two recipe cards, a few pictures that she took and they are also stickers!, a keychain with fluer-de-lis on it, and a frog clicker that I'm sure will be absconded by my sister as soon as she sees it, and a carnival poster/newspaper, and a "who dat" magnet (not pictures, since the SO was admiring the teeny tiny stitching) and a fluer-de-lis tissue packet holder (perfect for movies!!), which got grouped with Theme 5, I'm not sure why...
Theme 4: "Harry Potter"

a very awesome hoop of the Hogwarts crest! (yay for another hoop for my hoopla wall!!), a Harry Potter lego necklace, and an altered tin FULL of magnets! (seriously, I pulled a few of them out to look at them, and when I put them back in the tin, the lid wouldn't shut!)
Theme 5: "SINbonnet Sue"

I love the idea of the SINbonnet Sues- the seven deadly sins! I've been wanting to make a quilt with the seven deadly sins as the focal point... but I'm not too good at stuff like that...
so she made me 4 of the seven Sues, Greed, Gluttony, Lust, and Envy. she also gave me stuff to finish the other three; Sloth, Vanity, and Anger. on the cd is the patterns so that I can embroider some to put in frames on the wall! (and there's the tissue pack!)
and, the whole package, all together!

Thank you so much nostephot!! I love it all!!!  Grin Grin Grin

That's a really cute package! I love the pixelated items, look like they took a lot of time and the ? box is awesome (and I'm not even that much into videogames!)

The SINbonnet sues are amazing, they give a whole new way to look at the quilt square I made in the 6th grade (just a regular sunbonnet sue)  I also really like the mardi gras beads bowl!  How did you make that?  i would love to have a use for all those Mardi Gras beads I have.

Thanks for all the complements.  I had a blast making everything and the Sinful Sues were a challenge.... But worth it.

The mardi gras bead bowl was done in my oven with the beads (old school 70s beads) wrapped around the inside of a stainless steal bowl.  It took a long time and I had to wrap the upper colors after the lower beads had softened because I as going too high in the bowl.  I will do it again but will be looking for a wider bowl than the one I used. I would say it took maybe an hour overall.
