You don't have to make anything extra, it isn't your fault the mailmen are evil.

That is the weeeeeirdest thing ever.. I mean, I know posties sometimes like to steal stuff.. usually it's the whole package though.. but to replace something with chocolate is just.. weird. Great that at least part of it showed up - such a shame the magnet is missing though Sad

Whysteria, did you notice it had been tampered with? Or were you too quick to rip it open?

WHYYYYYY!!! I hate royal mail!

I just had to pop in and say that link and dark link hoop is AMAZING! Cheesy
And mailmen are apparently going even crazier >.>

I love that hoop!!! That has got to be the creepiest thing, maybe they opened the package to check what the candy was and broke the magnet so they put the chocolate bunny in as an attempt to replace it? I dunno it's just to weird and strange to think about why.

That hoop is amazing!
And this is the weirdest thing i ever heard of...replacing a magnet with a bunny?? Maybe the magnet was just too awesome and they had to take it? It's really plain creepy..
But from the first package picture, it appears the envelope is still sealed? How did they get the bunny inside without breaking the seal??

On another note, am just so impatient to receive loukr's package! >_< Another reason why we all hate the post service Sad

But if you look at the envelope pic too, the first item on the customs declaration is blacked out too, was that you Whysteria or was that their way of hiding it?  Its all so weird

I'm still waiting for queenofmarigold to get her goodies too.

I hope mine will arrive soon too, mama24boyz! I think there was 1-2 weeks between our sendout dates though so it could still be a little while. I sure hope not though! I've been going to the post office everyday JUST IN CASE. The post office lady actually recognises me now, because of swaps - when I have a swap parcel to collect I don't even have to tell her our box number any more, she just sees me and goes out the back to get it Cheesy

The Mystery of the Missing Magnet is just so darn mysterious! And the worst part is we can never really find out what happened Sad

No mama i didn't black that out, only my last name and address. I have the package right here and when i look close i can see the shine of the pen saying 'magnet' but someone took a sharpie or something and went over it. I wouldn't have noticed that at all if you hadn't mentioned it O.o and it was resealed with a thick white papery tape but i assumed that customs almost always opened packages. I'm upset someone would be that rude and hateful but I have my hoop and it's so amazing I just cant be but so upset lol but if they did accidentally the magnet instead of a chocolate bunny a note apologizing with the broken pieces would have been much more acceptable, I'm a crafter after all, I could have fixed it lol

Hhhuh. How strange! I would have guessed that two packages got ripped and maybe they couldn't tell which spilled items went to which, but you're all right! The customs form lists everything right there. I've only ever had one thing get stolen from my mail; a bracelet my sister made which we sent to our little cousin. We just stuck it in the birthday card, it fit, and when she got it there was a thin cut down the side taped over... the "You're 11 so here's a $11 check!" was still there, but the bracelet was gone.  Sad  Ever since then we've used padded envelopes for small things like jewelry that can be felt through a normal envelope.

Anyhoo! That hoop is so cuuute~! And I love the crochet ocarina, what a pretty rotund shape.
