"Wow" does not even come close to expressing how amazed and impressed I am with Xamonster's swap items she sent me, but I am continually repeating it in my brain. It takes other forms such as "Oh, wow!" and "Holy f**king wow!" but, basically, I'm thinking, "Wow!
I hope you all like pictures because I took tons of them.
Here is the full box in all it's red and gold glory:
A gift from Fawkes - too cool!:
What could this be, besides a gorgeous decorated tin?:
It's a container for some really cute Gryffindor magnets!:
She also sent some super cute owl stationery:
I can write notes to my friends and family and send them via...
My very own messenger owl!:
And look at this gorgeous yarn! It is mostly red with golden yellow streaks and metalic gold threads running through it. The picture does not do it justice:
This is amazing. She knit a water bottle cozy that really fits my bottle! It is so awesome:
Next we have the envy of all Gryffindor fans everywhere: "Wrist warmers for those cold Quidditch Games!"
The pièce de résistance, the mystery item, and the most incredible hand-knitted item I have ever owned...en entrelec Gryffindor purse!
It is "a bag to carry around [my] most important items." Wow. Wow.
There is even more! Inside the bag were a beautiful set of stitch markers and an incredible embroidered phoenix patch. This patch is absolutely stunning and I couldn't get a very good picture of it. It's just...wow.
Xamonster is infinitely thoughtful. The sendout date was my birthday and she sent earrings with my birthstone! They can be worn even without ear piercings because they are magic
Check me out!!!!
Oh, yeah! I am just itchin' to do some witchery now!
What sneaky magical items might I have in my bag? That's for me to know and you to wonder about.
Xamonster, this was truly the best swap ever for me. I am just so knocked out by with your crafting abilities and your thoughtfulness that I am at a loss for the right words to express how much I appreciate your swap package for me. Thank you.
I don't think thank you is enough, but what else is there to say?
RAH! RAH! Gryffindor!
