Stuff for Anna


I mentioned last Friday that we had our LOSTie secret sister reveal online. I just wanted to take a minute and show y'all the items I made for my sis, Anna. Keep in mind everything has a LOST and a 12 Days of Christmas reference. So I did my homework and watched the first 12 episodes of Season 1 and came up with something to give her. Here are my favs. Episode 12 shows Kate & Sawyer diving for a suitcase. So since this was the last thing she opened, I included a little lunch tin that had a reveal card in it, a bunch of Wish RAK images and these altered blocks. I used this fabulous tutorial by Emily. On the back side, it says LOST. Paper is Lilly Anna by TAC.

Episode 11 shows Jack' dad getting canned for being intoxicated during an operation. So I included a tin FULL of drink stickers. The tin is actually the box that the SU Flower Fusion comes in. I also used the Lilly Anna paper from TAC. Stickers can be found at Michaels.

Episode 6 shows Charlie stepping on a beehive and saying, "I have an irrational fear of bees". So I told Anna that not all bees are bad, especially when they come in lip balm form! Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE Burt's Bees products. So I found this adorable tutorial on SCS for a lip balm holder. Image is by Memory Box. Paper is from the Lilly Anna collection by TAC. Sentiment is from A Muse. I used my Nestabilities on the main image.

Episode 5 showed Jack crying, a lot. We always make fun of the poor Dr. because he does shed quite a few tears on the show. So I made Anna a little tissue carrier. I found the directions on SCS under the Fan Club Dirty Dozen Patterns.Paper is from TAC's Lilly Anna collections. Stamps used: LE Little Curls (TAC), Very Punny. I colored in the bird with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS.

In Episode 2, we see Jin preparing Sushi for everyone on the island. So I found this fun idea here and made Anna some candy Sushi. Ross doesn't recommend tasting it, LOL. On the top of the tin, I made a little label using the Sushi set from A Muse.

I also created a 12 days of Christmas song that went along with each episode. It went a little something like this:
12 festering magots
11 shots of whiskey
10 blood curdling screams
9 hole game
8 rippling ab muscles
7 bags of crack
6 string guitar
5 hallucinations
4 boars a running
3 Oceanic waterbottles
2 pieces of plane a fallin'
and a pilot in an island tree

Now if you watch each of those episodes it will all make sense, LOL. This is what I did for each of the other episodes in case you're wondering:
Episode 1 showed Locke giving Kate a "orange" smile so I included a pack of Orange Crush Jelly Belly candies. I included a whistle for Episode 3 because it had Locke whittling a whistle to find Vincent. In Episode 4, we get a scary closeup of Sayid's crazy long fingernails. So I put a nail file in there for her. Episode 7 we saw people going to Sawyer to ask him for stuff from his stash. So I included a tin that was full of my favorite things from my stash. Episode 8 has one of my all time favorite scenes, with Charlie, Claire and the idea of Peanut Butter. I gave Anna a empty mason jar and inside it had a slip of paper with Charlie's quote, "Full to the brim with stick to the roof of your mouth, oh God, make you want a glass of milk, extra smooth... it's the best bloody Peanut Butter I've ever tasted". Episode 9 shows Michael sketching out an aquaduct. So I got Anna a mini sketch book and included some of my favorite sketched in it. Finally Episode 10 had a scene where Charlie found Claire in the forest and he brought her a cup of tea and said, " What separates us from these savage yanks if we can't drink tea". So I included 2 boxes of my favorite tea. Okay sorry for the crazy long post, but I had such a blast getting creative and putting this all together for Anna. Thanks again for hosting such a great round DUDE!
