Ok, so when I signed up for this swap, I had very little idea of what life had in store for me before I would be able to send out my package (which was terribly late!). First there was a bout of bronchitis that lasted over a month, including a trip to the ER, which led directly into an episode of my "maybe-MS", a very stressful sewing job I never got paid for, then my daughter getting extremely sick (leading to me once again sick now), and last but not least, the beginning of a divorce. *phew* Soooo, it was so lovely and refreshing to receive in the mail this amazing box full of goodies from Ceemonster!! I tried very hard to NOT open it until I was ready to send out hers because I felt very guilty. However, the box said "fragile" and my daughter accidentally knocked it off of my bed... so I just HAD to open it to make sure everything was ok.
She helped me open it too and we took a LOT of pictures...
So adorable the owl card!!
This beautiful goblin mask now hangs up above my sewing table as I make my dress for the ball...
I just love the nose!!
Oh my gosh, look at all the stuff in this box!!
In the red bag, three sets of goblin horns, for me and my little minions...
A pack of cute owl notecards!
Yummy flavored bubbles! (I think the little minions like these too!)
And a GORGEOUS Sarah/Jareth necklace!!! (My 8 year old son said "Ooooh... Well, personally I just like the owl by itself, but it IS very nice.")
A fairy bookmark... and she hasn't bit me... YET!!
And, I love this mug. I have been drinking my coffee out of this.

So, now, if Flickr gets all cranky about me linking to my photos, you can see them all here at Flickr as well:http://www.flickr.com/photos/suomisidhe/sets/72157623509612748/
This was my first swap here at Craftster, so I wasn't quite sure what to do or what to expect at first. I think I got the greatest swap partner and I am so happy for that. She did an amazing job. My kids and I have never had a better time to receive such a fun package that we could all enjoy. Now to go pop Labyrinth into the DVD player and make ourselves some tea while wearing our matching goblin horns while we snuggle up together.
I'm terribly nervous now as I wait for my partner to get her package... (Does everyone get that way once they've sent it out??)
