I received the most amazing package from Wulf yesterday.  I'll post pictures after I get off work.  He was even sweet enough to include a little something extra for my boyfriend Cheesy 

I have the most ridiculous swap anxiety now.   : Undecided

Yay Summer! The post office promised "7 to 10 days" but I didn't really believe it would get there by Yule. So glad it did! Now I can get excited waiting for yours to arrive. Smiley

I received my package from Wulf, and I was ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY by it.  Holy potatoes.  Wulf, you are incredible.



The whole package.  Two coffee cup holders (one TWIN PEAKS THEMED!!!!!!!), a foldable traveling altar, some tokens to represent the elements, some incense, and a maple syrup lolli.  



Close up of the coffee cup holders.  They're beautifully made and just my style.  Wulf included two so my boyfriend could have one too Cheesy  These will definitely come in handy considering the sheer amount of coffee the two of us consume.



The tokens and lolli



The altar.  I told Wulf I don't really have room for an altar because I live in temporary housing in Asia (aka SUPER SMALL and I will be moving in three months).  When I unpacked this thing my jaw dropped.  It's beautifully made, with four little areas hollowed out for my tokens.  The one on the right has a small hole drilled into it to hold incense.  It's on hinges to it can fold up for easy moving/storage.  (It's also, coincidently, the same color as my floor, which doesn't make for the best photos.)



Everything again, with the altar folded up.  The little knobbies support it.

Wulf, thank you thank you thank you so much for the most beautiful swap package I've ever received.    I wish I could say something other than 'thank you,' because I don't think that quite covers it.  Thanks a million?  Thanks a trillion?  You're totally awesome and you make cool stuff and you're also really nice and I hope good things happen to you always?  Cheesy

Wow. That's way more than enough - I'll have to be your partner for at least three more swaps to fulfill that much thanks!

I did have one moment of swap anxiety after I'd sent it, about the Log Lady cup cozy. "What if she doesn't get it?" I thought. "Then I'll have to explain it, and that'll be so awkward!" So it was a great relief that you got it right away. This was my second attempt; the first idea was a little girl dancing with Grandfather Frost. It wasn't my style, and it just didn't work. So I went back to your Wist and discovered that you're a Twin Peaks fan, which I somehow missed the first time. Then it was easy!

The feather was donated by a passing blue jay. I'm sure I violated all sorts of Wildlife Protection rules by mailing it to Korea, but I thought you ought to have the feather of a very North American bird, not just some anonymous Chinese chicken. Wink

NEWS FLASH! I'VE RECEIVED TOO!!! I just realized I hadn't checked the mailbox this morning, and guess what? Your package is here! It's too dark to take decent photos tonight, but I'll post first thing in the morning.

Summer and I both agreed "small packages, please", so I was delighted to find I could fit everything in one photo, perhaps for the first swap ever!

The hand-bound book is covered in a collage of pieces of washi paper, with lovely gleaming white paper inside. The notebook is a pocket-sized version of the same. And a matching Yule card too!

Thanks so much for these, Summer. I love blank books for sketching etc. and I happen  to need a new pocket notebook right now, so they're the perfect Yule gift. Smiley
