Here's the mail, it never fails...

Here's the mail, it never fails. 
It makes me want to wag my tail. 


When it comes I want to wail - Mail!

Haha. So there are even more reasons to why this weekend was mostly good. I thought I would share some of the things I go in the mail over the last few days. I got  A LOT.

I ordered some things from Ebay and Etsy, but I won't bother with those. Clothes and accessories mostly. Which are so much fun! The really fun things are my swap items, and since I can't show what I made since I haven't sent, I thought I would show what I have received.

First, on Thursday, I got a package from the talented Lanikins of Craftster. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland with a passion. So she made me this AMAZING Cheshire cat. He is HUGE!
And his tail spins!! He is just simply amazing.


I told you he is HUGE!!

She also sent me this swamp zombie, which I love and so does Boo Pigwidgeon. (The cat.) I keep finding her cuddled up with it, purring! So cute.
She also made me these little sculpted versions on my yeti and zombie bigfoot. You all know I don't have to explain how much I love these. I couldn't get a good picture because they are so small and my camera sucks. But I assure you, they are adorable!
Lani spoiled me to death! She also sent a big pin cushion and needlebook made from my favorite skull fabric ever but I forgot to take a picture.

Friday rolled around and ANOTHER HUGE package arrived, this time from Amy. Is that any surprise? Amy and I have pretty much accepted that we are forever swapping for the rest of our lives. Unfortunately, our significant others do not agree with this but what do they know, right? Boys are silly and know nothing. Amy and I need to keep swapping in order to live.

Most of the stuff she sent was supplies this time around. She is awesome and bought me some wedding "I do" cups, favor boxes for the shower, birdhouses, and some imitation munny dolls since I don't have many craft stores around me. And she sent me something AWESOME!! But I cannot post it because it is for Kevin. I don't want him to see it because it is for his birthday. But go check out her blog because he is on there! She did send me this adorable Zero, though!
Isn't he cute!? I heart Amy and all her creations.

Finally, yesterday I got one last HUGE package in the mail, this time from the amazing Always Inspired, aka Deana. Remember when she made me Meat Loaf? Well, we are in a continuing swap also, and she agreed to do Walt Disney and Tim Burton. Well, she completed Walt and he is mind-blowing!
Is he not just freakin' awesome and amazing?! I plan to take some good pictures tomorrow morning and do a whole post of just him but I wanted to show him off really quick. I am such a lucky girl to swap with such amazing people. 

She also sent this pillow that I already tucked away to save for the wedding. It is so awesome, you need to see it in person!

And finally, she hosted a Half-Evil Giveaway for her 333rd blog post and guess who won? Me?! Little Spooky Pooky! And I LOVE him! Is it not highly coincidental that a girl who loves all things cute and creepy won this? haha. I have been carrying him around as if I am a child but I love him so much!
So this weekend was great and helped alleviate A LOT of stress between the wedding and flooding and everything else. Thank you to everybody that swaps with me and makes my life so much fun! I love you all!!

Silly hubbies (and soon to be hubbies) thinking they can control crafting! You and Amy are both awesome and I'm always in awe with what you make. I can hardly wait to check blogger to see what you two have cooked up. :)
