My box is here! (I checked the tracking number because I thought it would be here... it said delivered. But Fiance's dad usually brings me any mail or packages I get, so I got worried... Went upstairs, there it was, on the porch! Plus the FedEx guy left some dog biscuits for our dog, who I know was barking like crazy at him. I thought that was nice.)
I managed to get a picture of my kitty Gimli with the box (though he wouldn't pose because he apparently needed to bathe):
So here's everything that I pulled out of the (enormous!) box:
And I opened the card with my name on it (in case there were instructions or something) and it's so pretty and has nice texture so I will share it too:
10/3: I got Primatheart's blessing to start on the first, which means I got to open THREE things today!!! First, look at the pretty tags she used:
So the first package was this awesomely huge pillowcase:
(I needed a pillowcase like this back when I was trick-or-treating... So much loot would fit in here!)
With this beautiful mirror inside of it:
Day 2 was TWO scarves!!!
(I managed to keep the kitties away from the fringe by giving them the ribbon from the bag I opened!)
And Day 3 was two Halloween decorations: a raven on a pumpkin and a spooky gravestone!
10/4: Day 4 is jewelry! I Pinned a necklace similar to this one, and I will definitely be wearing this to work tomorrow!
And a second necklace! Hard to tell (it was difficult to photograph) but it has little sparkly bits and some pumpkin and leaf charms inside!
And the second one was in this pretty box:
10/5: This package smelled good from the outside! Two Nightmare Before Christmas candles (one says it's mountain berry and the other is black cherry):
And also this nifty little pumpkin that lifts off to reveal that the log is hollow and can hold nifty little things!
10/6: This is my favorite so far!!! Obviously I love everything so far, but... well, look!
Cards and envelopes!!!!!
Tags and envelopes!!!!!
Coffin boxes! And at first I thought they were empty and I was really happy with today's package, but no... Primatheart is even better than that. The bracelet of paper circles at the bottom was inside one (and it feels really cool), and this was in the other...
LEAFY CHARM BRACELET!!! I wouldn't even take it off to take a picture. Obviously, it's going to work with me today.
10/7: Socks!!! I don't wear plain socks... only patterns and pictures and especially holidays!
Also, a picture frame straight from my Pinterest (which was straight from a previous round)!
10/8: Candy! And it came in this awesome specimen bag!
And this adorable squishy-soft pumpkin, and a plate/bowl/currently-acting-as-candy-dish!
10/9: Decorations!!! A little orange snowman with a jaunty little hat, and a very pretty Halloweeny wreath (which is going up at my desk at Job #3 on Friday, the next time I'm there!)
10/10: Wow!!! Book art!!! This is really awesome!!! (If you're curious, the book is Tuesdays With Morrie.) I love this so much!
I promise the last few photos tonight when I get home from work! (Batteries in my camera died.)
Here we go, last photos are here!!!
Day 11: These awesome felt leaf placemats (no doubt because I put a similar pumpkin one on my Pinterest, but these leaves are WAY better!) that I think I might have to hang on the wall in a festive manner, plus (difficult to see in the photo, sorry) one of those creepy tree centerpieces! (I have to clear off the kitchen table before I can set it up so it's still in the package.)
Day 12: Cute little pumpkin guy with a sweet hat:
Day 13: CANDY!!! Mine came in the nifty specimen bags too
And there was one for Fiance too! He was very surprised and says thank you VERY much. I am eating gummy worms as I type (and they're really delicious... I've never had this brand before so I'll have to start looking for it!)
Thank you SO MUCH for such an INCREDIBLE swap package, Primatheart!!! You are beyond amazing and everyone should fight ferociously over the opportunity to have you as a swap partner every time you join a swap
