I received from my partner pcollins399, and he totally spoiled me rotten even though this was his first swap! Your package makes the one I sent you seem so small in comparison, I may have to figure out some other things to send along to you to make up for it.
The presentation was awesome too. I have a picture on my cell but can't find the weird little adapter for the memory card. Each item was wrapped in black tissue paper and tied with a string that had a card with each letter written on it.
For letter J, a Jar of Jelly candy (which is quite tasty!). The glass is etched with my name
This must have taken awhile! When I etched some glasses with small characters it took so much cutting and painting and painstakingly other things I can't remember.
For letter E, Earrings. I have earrings similar to these on my wist or etsy favorites or something. They really look alien tentacle-y because of the colors! Unfortunately my ears have a hard time with earrings as heavy as these, apparently, but I'm going to try to wear them anyway! (the picture was also very unflattering so I cut out my face)
For S, an amazing stenciled shirt! I think this is my favorite - I love the robot and the adorable sewn on heart. It's a bit big but it seems about right for a tunic type of shirt, I think. Somehow the shoulders are not too big, which is usually my problem with larger shirts. I really love the design of the robot, he is so cute! I can wash it normally, right? I've never had a stenciled shirt before!
For S, Stitched magnets. I have these on my wist, I'm pretty sure. Mmm tetris! They're on my refrigerator already!
For I, Nintendo Icons. I especially like the star and mushroom, and my boyfriend is mad at the squidy stuffie because he said they're the most annoying enemy in New Super Mario Bros Wii. They have been added our steadily growing ornament box for the tree we are hopefully going to squeeze into our tiny apartment this year!
For C, cat toys! I opened everything at my mother's house, where I had the package delivered, and packed it back up to bring home. As soon as I opened the lid of the box to start showing everything to my boyfriend, my cat had her face in the tissue paper trying to find something! Clearly, these cat toys. She drooled all over the tissue paper trying to find them, and I wish I'd gotten a video of her digging around in there. As soon as they left the box she was on them and apparently freaking loves them. Or deeply hates them, as she is trying to eat and kick one of them to death. She's carrying one across the room as I type this. I took a video of her enjoyment as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFWHiwq-yL4
And lastly, A, wall Art from Doctor Who. My mom and step dad are trying to convince me I should hang these up at their house so they can steal them from me! My favorite is the Tardis, I think.
Some extras, as though there wasn't enough amazing stuff in this package! Link is not a pez dispenser - I've never seen a candy dispenser like this before.
Thank you so much pcollins399! Your package was really really amazing and I feel so lucky to have been your partner!
