I got such great luvs in the mailbox today. And, since the army has now blocked blogger off their computers (weird, huh?), and Bryan can't read this blog anymore, I will go ahead and share this:
This is a fabulous find for one of Bryan's Christmas presents. Of course, we'll have to print a photo of it, and wrap up the photo. There's no way this would ever make it to/from Afghanistan in one piece. Anyway, the story goes...
Bryan is constantly asking me if he can learn to hunt. Now, I don't really like the whole idea of hunting...especially not when all people want out of it is some head to hang on their walls. And, unfortunately, this seems to be EXACTLY what Bryan wants. First of all, those things are creepy. I don't need some once adorable living creature staring back at me from my living room walls with its dead eyes. I find it pointless to kill an animal simply for the purpose of decoration. And, anyway, that isn't my idea of decor. So, no, Bryan, there will be no dead animal heads hanging in my house. Sorry.
But, then, a couple of weeks ago, I was shopping for Lumplings. While I was there, I decided to read through Amy Rue's blog. Someone had gotten her husband one of these stuffed heads for his birthday. They are from Cherry Box Studios. When I saw them, I knew they would be the perfect compromise on the "head argument". And, it should give him a good chuckle at Christmas...otherwise, not the happiest time of the year to be deployed. And, the head is even cuter in person, and I think that I might just need to pick up the Bling Pony for myself. So my style!
And, here's the best part (I love it when people send freebies when you order something from them). She sent me a set of REALLY COOL postcards with some of her Waifer Dollie designs on them. Check these two out:
"AmpuTina" and "AlcoHolly"! For anyone that doesn't know...Tina is my best friend. Ha ha ha...I couldn't believe it when I saw these. She makes dollies and purses with the same characters too! I'm going to have to figure out something really special to do with these postcards!
I also got my Poppy Ink kit in the mail.
I can't wait to crack that sucker open after the kids go to bed tonight. I should have lots of new scraps to share soon!
