I really have enjoyed this swap so much. Between brainstorming ideas, crafting, the anticipation of sending, the anticipation of receiving...and now...receiving! Yay! It is swaps like this that keep me swapping.
Be prepared to be jealous! fluffypants spoiled me rotten!
I received this large box in the mail from Canada. Now that I am thinking about it, this might be my first swap with someone from Canada!
fluffypants sent me a nice card with a quote on it; but I forgot to take a picture.
After pulling that out, the first thing I saw was this awesome little notebook with my buddy Darth on it. Love this quote of his. Where did you get this Mary? Was it a stamp? My boyfriend almost snatched it for his own use because he likes it so much.
This piece stayed in the box as I gazed lovingly and incredulously at it lying there. It is the police box in jewelry box form. With the galaxy adorning it, and a quote from the 11th Doctor: "I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams." And it is awesome. You may drool now.
The pictures do not do it justice.
Next up is the nice, sturdy, green lamp. Looks pretty nondescript, right? What could it possibly be doing in a craftster swap! Much too plain!
Or so I thought. Until I slipped my finger inside of it to pull the lampshade out of the box. What could this be I wondered? I looked inside it and realized what she had done. I couldn't get it put together and lit up fast enough!
It is a quote from Sirius Black: "We've all got both light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are."
One side got a little bent and part of the edge came loose in shipping. Easily fixed!
And lastly, but very much appreciated by my boyfriend...a bag of candy!
It should be gone soon.
THANK YOU FLUFFYPANTS!!!! I can't express how happy it all makes me!
Thanks to all for such a great swap. It's always a pleasure joining in on the fun!
