I received my box of goodies from Jennie and wow, she did a fantastic job! And I still have no clue how she bent time and space to fit so much into that little box.
Love the blue wrapping paper!
On top was a letter from Donna Noble telling me about her stay on Midnight and describing the many thing in her little care package to me.
Jennie fit in a ton of Doctor Who references and the letter alone totally made my day. Oh, the letter wasn't actually blue, it just photographed that way and I didn't notice it until uploading. Click on it to see a larger version. I figured this post would be photo-heavy enough.
Inside were SO MANY little goodies. Including a Tardis key and teacup earrings ...
and cross stitching tools along with (not pictured) two fantastic Doctor Who cross stitch patterns that I NEED to make up ...
and packets of vanilla custard powder and Rose and Thyme Lord bath salts (which smell heavenly)
and tea, chocolate, and some great recipes, including one for gluten-free scones. Yay! I miss scones.
There were also numerous other little goodies including a tardis-blue sharpie, stickers, a fun antique ticket, a bag of beads and extra tardis key, an andipose pattern for my own stuffed andipose, and a fantastic measuring tape in a blue plastic case that Jennie dressed up with a "free for use" little label that was a perfect play off of the tardis' own sign. I can't believe I forgot to get a pic of that, it was my second favorite thing in the whole box (which is saying a lot, I loved it all).
But the best was the amazing charm bracelet she made -
Tucked into a blue box (of course!)
And simply packed with subtle references to my favorite episodes. See how many you can spot.
This was a great swap and all my thanks to Jennie who did an amazing job! And, seriously, how DID she get that all in there??
My own package has been sent off and I hope it gets there with all speed!
