Somewhere around week three after the sendout IsikkahJai must have hit her head quite heavily somewhere, because she thought she had to send something superhuman to make up for the delay. To me. Who is Queen Swap Anxiety I. of the Lands of Late Sending (our national anthem is the tooth grinding and low key growling of the swap mod squad
So I got the most undeserved Package of Awesome, and it gave me quite the shock!
OK, I think I've calmed down a bit over my package now and might be able to face the entirety of it in pictures
Let's start with the magic duelling game for my kids (they LOVE it!)
Stuffed but not sewn shut yet (there was no need to send heavy stuffing, I always offer to stuff things for bulk and weight reasons)
Wand pens for everyone! And that's a beautiful box of scrapbooking supplies underneath
And handmade note books for us to scrapbook in
Now the thing is that my kids don't scrapbook. They really don't see the point of unnecessary cutting and pasting in their lives. But the moment they saw the note books, and the supplies, they turned into instant scrapbookers! They've been cutting, pasting, writing, glittering and stamping, and inventing spells to inventarise in the books, so this has been another big success with the kids (and me, I love mine, too
But there's more! Ravenclaw and Snitch hair accessories, refill pens for the wands, Japanese candy (eeek!). There has been more candy, but it's already gone
and a book of crosswords that my not-yet-English-speaking kids totally plan on doing (I was told just now that they do indeed speak some English already thank you very much). Also, I got the cutest Severus Snape postcards (that somehow didn't make it on the pictures) and some glow sticks.
More! Tree of life in Ravenclaw blue - with beads and stones, and wire in two colors. You can't see it in the picture, but it grows outwards like a real tree. It's such a beautiful thing that I have put it up my wall for when I don't wear it, because I want to see it all the time.
And then there was this - a trunk filled with more stone beads, jewellery supplies and cute tiny potion bottles that are completely unavaiable here:
At this point I would already have declared my dear IsikkahJai totally nuts, but guess who the trunk belongs to: Luna Lovegood!
She so beautiful! Gentle, dreamy eyed, pretty, and did I mention extremely well made? She has perfectly shaped fingers and arms and everything, basically.
Thank you thank you thank you IsikkahJai!
