Oh! I have some wonderful goodies to share!  I hope people do stop by to gaze at the wonder that is the crafty goodness of fluffypants!

The karma police have been watching me - knowing that I had completely dropped the bundle during this swap, they did not let me receive my package from fluffypants until I had organised mine to send to her.  I had just picked up the last bits to put in her package and I got home to find her package for me waiting there!  Yay!

Here we go:
My husband is a mad ice hockey fan, but living in Australia gives very little opportunity to play or watch his favourite sport.  When he heard my new swap partner was from Canada, he got very excited and asked if she could send some ice hockey stuff over for him.  She obliged in a very big way and his reaction of "Phwoar!!!!!" when he opened his bits was priceless!  His eyes and smile were wide for ages afterwards!
Here is his haul: Canadian hockey beanie, rangers drink holder and coaster and Soo Greyhounds button.

And him just after opening the package, his head buried in the hockey record:

Now that he is all taken care of... my haul!  Firstly, a mug with the famous Wicked! pic painted onto it... awesome-ness...

I drink tea all the time, so it's already had a run tonight.  Then, cherry lip balm, with Rizzo in the lid...  and Canadian pencils...

And now, get ready to be jealous all Scrubs fans...  the most fantastic bag in the whole, wide world...

Bahahahaha!  I love it!  Here's a pic of the inside and gorgeous fabric fluffypants used for the lining...

Super-duper magnificent awesomeness!  I had an idea that we could use this for a nappy bag when our prodigy arrives in December (hence the reason my head has been all over the place and I'm extremely late sending my package out!!) and my husband agrees.  I think it is rather apt, and it sure beats all the bags I've seen around so far!  It just makes me laugh so much - I love that episode and this is just so perfect.

Thanks again to the wonderfully talented fluffypants!  Hip hip hooray!

I'm so glad it all made it there in one piece!  I forgot how much I loved the fabric on the inside of that bag. So psychedelic!

One little mishap though- after I packed up and sent, I realized the lip "grease" is orange, not cherry- the oil was packaged in the wrong bottle when I got it from eBay--- whoops! Still smells yummy, though! Wink

Ahhh!  That explains why it doesn't quite smell like cherry!  But it's still beautiful and scrummy - cherry or orange!

Wahooooooo! Prepare to be stupefied- I have received the most fantastic package from sallyb! I am so happy with every last bit of it. My mom even cried after I opened it, she was so touched that someone would put so much care into swap items, hehe.. mom's a softie.

First up, all the goodies!! Chocolate, chocolate, MORE CHOCOLATE! Also, vegemite, some really cool booklets about places in Australia, and a few neat-o magazines!

Next up, the great My Fair Lady magnets, including little magnet paper dolls! So adorable!

Up next, the absolutely adorable Fiddler on the Roof bag (I love the Tevye applique!) and a sneak peek at the large item in the background... Wink Forgot to get a shot of the great vintage bed sheet lining of this pouch- will have to do that soon!

Isn't he the most adorable thing ever?!

And finally, the piece de resistance... the most amazing technicolor hoodie the world has ever seen! My gosh, when I think of the hours that must have gone into this, I believe I was truly blessed with Sally as my swap partner! I love this shirt to pieces, and have already worn it out and about tonight. Cheesy

And of course, I've had the songs stuck in my head all day... which led to this. Wink

Yay for late night 5 minute photoshop jobs! Wink

And one last one of JUST HOW EXCITED I am!

Thanks again Sally, I adore everything! And thanks heaps to kaishabackwards for taking my dream of a musical swap and making it a reality for the lot of us!! Smiley

Now I can sing every time I wear the hoodie...... I look handsome, I look smart, I am a walking work of art...!

Hahahaha!  You're a nut!  I love your pics, but I'm so stoked you love the package!  Those tourism books are from the area I live in - I feel it is my duty to inform people of the wonderous surroundings I am lucky to live in!

I think I should make a citation to the wonderful paper doll blog I snaffled the pics for the magnets from:
There are some amazing drawings on here and I was lucky enough to stumble across the My Fair Lady ones whilst looking for pics for the other magnets.

So glad you like it all - I love your pics at the end!  Enjoy it all!

It's true, the hoodie is pretty darn cool, what a great idea.  My daughter would be drooling over it (and bothering me to death to make one for her if she ever saw it).

But that diaper/nappy bag?  That is the most HYSTERICAL thing EVER!  The word "poop" is used very generously around our house (though thankfully, none of my children need diapers any longer).  So to see it on a bag like that....well, it just made me laugh until I peed my pants a little.

No, not really  Wink  But it's a great bag and even a greater idea to use it for a diaper bag!  I wish I lived wherever you live so I could run into you and your hubby someplace after your little one is born JUST so I could see you toting that bag around- muuwhahahhahahha!!!!!

This was a good (though L-O-N-G) swap and I've loved looking at the gallery.  I hope other people remember to come back and see the goodies that keep coming in!!!

This is a T-shirt with a quote from Bare: A Pop Opera. This is my favourite part of the package because there is no 'official' merch for Bare. Now I have my very own shirt!

I am not sure if you can see it, but it says "daring you to fall...Fairest of them All" in this beautiful silver. I love it!!
GAH! I adore Bare! I don't know anybody else who knows of it. I got James Snyder and Matt Doyle to sign my soundtrack last time i was in New York <3

All of these packages are so great! I think there needs to be another musicals swap soon...
