Two great parcles my swao anziety is deffinatly setting in. I totally love the monster book of monsters bookcover!! I have always thought it would be cool to have one - kinda like a pet book. This must be the next best thing. I also loved the mini earrings and broach - they're amazing!

I've just managed to retrieve my package from Sinjah from the dull and slow post office and well... I lost my words and was so moved by it's perfection that I began to cry, really. If the Christmass is cancelled, I don't care anymore. Well, I'll spare my limited amount of superlatives for the items themselves:
The Package:



And the beautiful, perfect and wonderful items that it contained (note that everything was packed in super luxurious boxes too):
1) The most beautiful magnets in the world, do you remember that I made stickers with Jacob's (Twilight character) quotations? Sinjah made magnets with Edward's most hilarious statements. She picked my favorites! And the small ones have words in alphabet in their backround. I don't have anything to put them on yet but I'm going to buy it for them, I love them so much!



2) The exquisite and "visibly made with love" bracelet with Edward's heart! If the other things she made for me weren't so amazing too I'd say it's my favorite. I love the combination of colors and materials and everything about it. I'm going to wear it for the rest of my life and change my wardrobe to match it Wink.





3) The beauteous *had to open her dictionary for more synonyms to "wonderful"*, dark romantic Dracula inspired (or at least vampire inspired) stationary set! Just imagine the 50 most praising superlatives you know here and you get the idea. I got letter papers with bats and with "V" because my real name's "Vita", envelopes with bats, and the same in its smaller version. The papers really seems to come from 19th century and it's so adorable! I wouldn't bear to actually write on it, I'll probably put it in a frame and expose it in my room!






4) Chilly - super cute picture frame! You can see quite well why I can't say what's my favorite? It's all too gorgeous!


5) Tons of chocolates and sweets, Sinjah knows I'm addicted to sweet stuff Wink. I fainted when I saw the amazing amount!


So, altogether, the amazingness, wonderfulness, perfection etc. of the package I got from Sinjah made even my wildest dream look like pale shades of the gorgeous reality.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! Cheesy I'm as happy as I've never been before, really!

What an amazing package! No wonder you were searching the dictionary for adjectives! I am an especial fan of the bracelet, and the stationary is just to die for (bad pun totally intended  Grin).

Amazing job, and so thoughtful!

Wow!  Proxima, you are one lucky duck!!  Great job, Sinjah.

I love it all.  But especially the stationery.  I have a weakness for paper goods.   Grin

Wow, Sinjah! That package is fantastic! The bracelet is so awesome - definitely post that in the jewelry gallery - people are going to drool all over it, even if they don't know who Edward is!

And the stationary is so cool! I love how historic it looks. Smiley

Okay, my turn! Smiley I received a wonderful package from Foxlet! Wanring: pic-heavy!.

Let's start with this awesome "secret" book:



Some customized Edward Gorey-themed bookplates:



And this amazing paper sculpture!



Now nestled happily amongst my books:



(Sorry for the bad pictures - glass is hard to photograph! They don't do this justice!).

And last, but DEFINITELY not least - my absolute favorite:



Slipper socks! And yes, Foxlet, they do fit - here's proof!



I couldn't resist getting an action shot with part of my library in the background. Smiley

I love love love these! I mentioned in my swap questionnaire that something cozy to wear on my feet while I read on the couch would be great (I live in a northern climate, so reading season can be quite chilly!). Some action shots:





These are Foxlet's own design, too!

The full package, with a few extras - including candy from Finland! Now I have to figure out what American treats to send you that you might not have!



Thank you so much, Foxlet! I hope you enjoy my package as much as I've enjoyed yours!
