Sorry sorry for the delay, for some reason I couldn't get these pictures to upload to Craftster, everyday I would think 'I must find some other way to do those photos' and then it would be time to cook dinner or go to work and time just slipped away from me so huge apologies, we all loved everything.

Here are the items from the truly amazing package Sevsonlygirl sent to my family. I'll apologise in advance for the quality of the photos, I am a terrible photographer.

This was the top of the box, 2 fantastic handpainted shirts, the green butterfly one is a hoodie, I've been wearing both to go running in the mornings. The brown one has the feminist symbol of a fist in a circle which I love (good sleuthing skills Sevsonlygirl!)

Inside the big box was a ANOTHER box containing treats for my daughters, Tootsie Pops, Tootsie Rolls, Reeses Pieces, Nerds...hundreds of different sweets... there were also differently scented soaps for each of them and lip gloss towers which are just lovely. AND a handpainted t shirt for each of them. My middle one grabbed a grey hoodie with a cow painted on the back - I don't yet have a photo of it as she wore it as as it came out of the box and it's been i the washing machine or on her back since

The soaps.

There was also a bag full of mini scented soaps for me, a key ring from Mackinac Island, 2 fantastically tacky Christmas decorations (again I bow to your detective powers), jewellery magaxines for which I am incredibly grateful, there are only two British ones and frankly they're woefull.

This is really nice fudge and a bag of chocolates (this iswhy I'm running in the mornings)

Thank you so much Sevsonlygirl, this was an enormous package and we'll using the items for months, if I've missed anything out it's purely because there was SO much!

I'm so glad you all enjoyed the box of goodies!  I figured if I made a box just for the girls, they might leave your things alone!

The cow shirt was my favorite - it was such a cute cow!  I really had to guess on sizes by their ages, I hope it worked out okay.

I think I went through every post you ever made to find out about the feminist symbol and the christmas ornaments!  But it was fun!!

Yay! I'm glad you like it!

I feel horrible that I didn't send chocolate! I was worried about it melting on everything on the way over, but yours got here just fine! Now I know for next time lol

Absolutely -- this was a great swap and want to make sure I have sent all the appropriate thanks (and am too lazy to look back through the postings Smiley )

Super thanks to my great partner Foxlet.  Such a great package and I am still dreaming of the day it finally gets cold enough to wear those fantastic gloves for the lovely princess wave to lord it over all of my friends...

Kudos to our great organizer SevsOnlyGirl -- thanks so much for taking the time and effort to get this going and watching over us.  I cannot imagine what you get out of taking on the additional work but am very grateful that you do.
