FIRST!!! Grin

I got my package from theballandskein today, all the way from Canada to Australia. It was the best Monday afternoon surprise ever.

First the crafted items. She made this beautiful shrug from hand dyed cotton. The flash does not do the colours justice, it is gorgeous. theballandskein is incredibly talented.



There was also a silk yarn cowl. I decided to put everything on at the same time. The hat was left at my house after a party one other time but it seemed appropriate.



And on with the snacks!

I have never tried any of these in my life. Very excited to get snacking. Cheesy

I ♥ Chippies!


And some lovely postcards and other bits.

I'm totally putting the Eh! sticker on my car!!! Cheesy

Thank you so much to my partner and the organiser. This was the best ever.

Did both of us Aussies get Canadians? That's funny! And it just occurred to me that I don't think I remembered to add any Australiana in my package. D'oh!

This makes me get excited for *my* Canadian package!

Hah! Isn't that cool! I've tried lots of US snacks so I was super happy to get a Canadian. I remembered to put one postcard in I think.
