Wow, guess I'm the first to post pics of what I received from the amazing Kitschkween!!  I decided to let Lana open her gifts from this swap a few days early so that she wouldn't get overwhelmed and not be able to enjoy them properly.  So yesterday she opened up her presents from Kitschkween!!  Thank you so much Kitsch!!  Everything is so awesome...from the packaging to the gifts.  Smiley

Lana with her presents so nicely wrapped.  Kitsch, the card is so great!!  The robots are uber cute and your Christmas message was so sweet!  I hardly ever get handwritten cards so this really was nice.  Smiley


The goodies:
Wonderful amigurumis for Lana.  The HK lunch bag had the lunch: drink, burger, and the egg.  The little wrapped parcels had the other goodies: Mr. Peanut (really love him), marshmallow, popcorn, and cup of coffee).  Smiley  These are so cute that I really feel like stealing them from her.  I know you guys do too.  Smiley


Goodies for me: bath soap, hand cream, body wash, and wrinkle cream for my eyes (I've been meaning to get some so this is especially appreciated!!)  Everything smells so wonderful!!  I tried the cream last night and loved it.  Thank you Kitsch!!!!


But wait there's more!!
Inside of the takeout box was a ton of foodie candies. Fries, burger, coke, and hot dogs.  Lana was jumping for joy when she saw this.  Who doesn't love candy and these are just too cute! 


And finally the love!!   

Lana really loves everything, Kitschkween!!  She's been playing with her new food and making lots of parties.  Smiley  Thank you so much for making us such an awesome package!!   You really helped make her Christmas and mine special.  You rock!!

This afternoon she'll open up our second package.  Yay for not being able to wait like everyone else is.  Tongue

Here's my second package from Secret Santa Kate from Australia!!  This first pic was taken when I was trying to be good.  Tons of wonderful presents and a lovely letter from Kate!  The letter has lots of nice things in it, but the part I need to share with you is that this is her first time knitting.  Knowing this will add to the wow factor later.


Lana was thrilled to have more goodies to open.

Ok folks.  Prepare to be blown away.   Kate made this lovely scarf for Lana.  Lana thinks it pretty cool too!!   Isn't it amazing!!  And she's a first time knitter.  I am stealing this for sure...ok, well we can share.  It is Christmas after all.


A close up of the loveliness. The colors are perfect!!  Love everything about it!!!


In the smaller packages Lana found crocheted food: cupcake and eggs!  Yum!!!   She ran off to play again with all of her food, but I captured her and made her open the rest.  Had I know what was in the other packages I wouldn't have.  Tongue


Australian candy!!!  My friends rave about TimTams and now I have one of my own.  We're going to share this on Christmas eve with the entire family!!  Violet Crumble!!  One of my favs.  I love the way it squeeks!!  Cadbury chocolate!!  Need I say more?  Smarties!!  Lana ran off with these and started munching away.  And a Turkish candy bar!  Sounds yummy!!  These candies are heavy!!  Kate spent a small fortune to send these to us.  THANK YOU!!!!   I am trying not to eat everything at once.  I want to savor them all!!


Thank you so much Kate!!  Everything was WOW!!  I have been trying to find out who you are.  Please tell me!

I could not wait any longer - I opened my santa package today!! It's Christmas Eve, so that qualifies as Christmas, right?! My santa was mandalinn (I figured this out because the labels on what she gave me had her website  Grin). She fulfilled my bath stuff/soap wish and totally spoiled me!

In my package was: back scrubby, bath pouf, 2 little zipper bags, a rubber duckie (! i loooove rubber duckies),  4 shea soaps (scents are sensual secrets, mediterranian dreams, peach, sugar), shampoo and conditioner in zen tea scent, shower gel - bluebonnet vanilla ice cream scent, blueberry lemon verbena body lotion, and whipped body frosting in ocean mist (super fluffy and nice). Everything smells wonderful but the blueberry lemon verbena is so yummy!!

Without further ado, the pictures!!:





check out this yummy looking soap! There is even tiny sparkles on it!! This one is going in my shower tonight!


Thank you so much mandalinn, you totally spoiled me!! I love everything!!!  Cheesy

I love that scarf! That is amazing, and I can't believe that is from a first-time knitter! I am a beginner and can't even fathom how to begin something like that.  Great job! Cheesy
