My husband picked up the packages that my mailman failed to ring the door about, or well 2 of the 3 since they LOST one of them. :|
Anyway, one of those packages was from MadHatteh.
First up is the thing she made for me. It's a little Pokemon themed trinket box. It's covered in bits and pieces from various Pokemon cards. Being a Pokemon card collector, my first reaction was "
I didn't have some of those cards" LOL But I love the box. It's a really neat idea. I'll probably keep my Pokemon stickers and coins in it. Every time I take a picture, my hair ends up in the picture somewhere. Ignore the hair that's over Jolteon's face, that's mine and not attached to the box.
I then opened the box because it felt like something was in it and found something awesome inside.
What is it you say? Well, the tag thing has stickers on the front and the back, and the packets, using an educated guess, appears to be some kind of gum, but it's going to stay packaged forever because the packets are too cute to tear open. The only thing that would sway me to open them is if there were stickers inside.
I love stickers!
That still wasn't everything! There were a ton of cards and a nifty mini binder to hold them! The Sampling Pack was sealed, but I couldn't help myself and needed to tear it open before getting a picture. LOL
I'm such a little kid
. I needed quite a bit of the cards for my collection too, so yay for that!
What's next, you ask? I kind of got a little too excited at this next thing. I have been searching for this movie for a long time and have had no luck. Not only did I get that movie, but I got a second movie with it.
The Celebi movie, aka movie 4, aka Pokemon 4ever, is my FAVORITE Pokemon movie, and she didn't know that before sending this gift, so yay for her mindreading abilities!
And last but not least is probably the best of all of the "non-crafted" items, just because he's one of a kind. What's so special about him, you might ask yourself, well the answer is that he's a factory reject Toy Factory Pikachu plushie! I have been trying to get my hands on the Toy Factory Pikachu for awhile. He's kind of hard to obtain, because he's an arcade prize of some kind (claw machine or random games). So the fact that she found a factory reject one makes it even more amazing. I'm a sucker for rejected
plush, just because they're legit and still one of a kind. And the Toy Factory plush are awesome because they're smush-faced and look so helpless and pillow-like. ANYWAY, here he is, scarface Pikachu.
And that's all the pictures of everything. Thank you so much, MadHatteh. I'm very pleased with the birthday gift you sent me. Welcome to the world of swapping. I'm glad I was able to get your first ever swap package.
