Finally! I get around to posting pictures!
I received my package last Friday, before I went out of town, and it was AMAZING!
This was the box:

I was excited just by looking at that!

Then, I opened it up and pulled this out first:

I continued to dig and then for my favourite shop, Flourish and Blotts, I pulled this out,

The things that came in there:
Two wonderful bookmarks,

and an awesome keychain, front and back:

For my favourite class, DADA:

For my house, GRYFFINDOR!:

I took the bag with me on my trip as a purse. (-:
Then I found a letter in the way bottom of the box. It was from Hermione!

It says,
Dear Hailey,
     I can't wait to see you back at Hogwarts this term. I was at Flourish & Blotts and I had to buy you this book. It's supposed to look like a regular Muggle book, but it has a magic enchantment to hid little treasures. I put some bookmarks i there and a little surprise. I am sure you will figure how the book works. I also thought you could use a new bookbag this year. I got you something in red and gold to show your Gryffindor spirit.
     This is going to be an amazing school year. I am so excited about all the courses we are going to take. Harry says to make sure you know our D.A. meetings are still in the Room of Requirement. Just check your galleon to let you know when. You have such a talent for Defense Against Dark Arts; it will be fun to see you there.
     Write back soon!
                    Yours truly,
PS: Ron says, "Hello!"

I loved the box!

Haha! How to write invisibly! Love it!
By Miss Inga Ink Smiley I thought that kinda worked as the book is blank inside...

Thant scafr is so cute! I love how the buttons make it look like the badgers claws Smiley
the paw print is actually embroidered, onto felt, it's not a button. I wanted something that only real potter-fans would know the significance of - to muggles it just looks like any old scarf  Grin
Glad you liked everything Baloo - you should be able to take the key off the Alohomora/Colloportus keyring and put your own on instead, to lock and open your own doors Wink I just used that one as a kind of demonstration

I just love the knitting club bag Smiley and the chess set is such a cool idea. The owl post stamp is brilliant too - what's it made from?

I'm always up for swapping hexies, felt badges,or TM patches (or anything, really!) - PM me Cheesy

I love that package!  And that book reminds me of some my parents had when I was a kid growing up (it was like a series of stories in a set that came with... Encyclopedias! I am now completely dating myself).

I just received from Azura (Who would have thought that Spain to Australia mail could be so fast!?), and I squealed Cheesy
And may have hugged my package. Jeez, I knew I'd gone soft over the last couple of years, but I didn't think I was that bad O.o

I don't know who loves it more, my kids or I, I have some seriously hilarious photos of us opening it together to post tonight (once I can steal back the ipad and not have it up high so no one can play with it :S )

But just in case my amazing, incredible, wonderfully stalking partner, who I would swap with anytime logs on before I get to post.... both kids are wearing their pressies, Phoenix stole one of the other parts and Bell stole other! I'm left with letters and extras till bedtime *evil* Cheesy

I'm baaack Cheesy With a picture obese post Wink

When I got my package Cheesy I squealed a little, hopelessly girly lol I was standing outside too, hoping that the package delivery guy was coming to my place hehe

Opening my package and discovering my notes along the way Cheesy
Those toes belong to my 3 year old who was firmly planted in my lap, he was almost as excited as I was at that stage haha

First, I have some gorgeous polymer clay buttons! In Ravenclaw colours and perfect for me! Great stalking partner Wink I looove buttons, and she would have found them all over my pinterest Wink I've thought of a million things to use them for already, but for now, Phoenix (the 3 year old) is loving them -

Then.... Oooh, what could this be?? My very own Monster Book of Monsters!? Yay! Perfect for my love of COMC <3 And inside... The perfect fabric combination for me! I love it Cheesy It fits my kindle perfectly. My only downside so far? Well.... brings us to the next part of my package as well as a clear illustration of the issue we've had with my Kindle cover - Miss Rosabella LOVES it! She stole it as soon as I had it open Cheesy
As you can see, Bella's shirt is both adorable and fits! It's a little big, but that's perfect for her! She's actually going through a phase of not wanting to wear a shirt, but she really wanted to put her new present on. I love it, it's the perfect colour for her (good stalking or super lucky?!), it's the same as at least half of her wardrobe ^_^
Phoenix's looks great too, and again, perfect colour!!! Either Azura should consider a career in PI, or should buy a lottery ticket Wink
They were obviously for my fave store, the Leaky Cauldron and I absolutely love them Cheesy

Thank you thank you thank you Azura, for my amazing swap package, I adore every bit!

(Oh Sad I forgot to take photos of my extras - I have a stunning bookmark and a magnet... that again, has been stolen by a little person  Roll Eyes )
