I'm glad you like everything! I got every color kool-aid the store had, hopefully it's enough.


Oh, I finally have pics of the packages travelbug and lilylola sent me. My cat ran off with my memory card, so I couldn't get anything before.

*beware, pic heavy*

First, lilylola's package from England:
loose teas, cadbury chocolates, christmas pudding, lemon biscuits, and a tea strainer

various old maps

postcards, a crochet book, and a paperdoll

And travelbug's package:
everything together

a two layer bento box and accessories

bento bag, chopsticks and snacks

postcards, stationery, and origami paper

Thanks so much travelbug and lilylola! I love everything!  Grin

Before my dad could drive the car into the porch I was shooing him out to get my parcel from Trillian.  Cheesy ;

The sad condition the box came in. I wonder if the plane gone through terbulence.

All the yummy goodness squeezed into the box. And my mom was just telling me I should get on a diet. Maybe after eating all these.
Clockwise from top-right: Truly Juicy gummies, TWO packs of Dragster 1000 sugar coated sweets, Tutti Frutti jelly beans, a mix of 3 types of Dumle sweets (original, licorice and orange-mango) white chocolate with blueberries, uber cute <3 shaped Moomin lolly and a bar of milk and white chocolate.

Trillian also got me 3 fabric paints in blue, yellow and red. The black is there to show you how tiny is the bottle which I bought for the most outrageous price. *Sigh* for the love of crafts. Btw Trillian, I love your choices! Now I'm going to look for a white shirt and paint my country's flag on for Independance Day...next year. (Aug 31st) Grin

In a little envelope was this beautiful fused glass (I think?) necklace which Trillian bought from a store which sells handmade stuff local artists made. How I knew? Trillian so brilliantly added a short letter about it, and others too.

Now I'm off to ask friends to go out with me so I can show off the necklace.  Cheesy

Trillian, you've just made my day!

I've never been the first to receive before - I feel honoured. A huge thank you to Yarnisfun who was a fantastic partner, just look at the wondrous things she sent to me. And just to set the seal on her all round loveliness, Yarnisfun was clever enough to get the parcel delivered on my birthday.

I'd asked for tacky Christmas decorations, sweets and anything to do with crochet, jewellery making or dancing (I teach dance for a living) and look, tacky CHristmas decorations, a jewellery kit, an iron on thingy saying dance, a really pretty fat quarter with ballerinas on it, some beautiful yarn, a packet of dance related buttons and stickers and a really cool sewing pattern which I think I'm going to use for Christmas presents

2. Sweets! My children love Tootsie Pops but we can't get them here, look at how many Yarnisfun sent. My daughters would very much like to have you as an Aunty.
My favourite, a big bag of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I love these things but (maybe fortunately) they're both really expensive and difficult to find here. I'm trying to ration myself but I doubt this bag will still be here tomorrow.
And of course Kool Aid. I keep meaning to dye yarn with it, but every time someone's kind enough to send us some we end up drinking it. We've already drunk three packets this time so it looks like I'll be begging again.

3. My favourite, favourite item

Father Christmas in tropical weather gear with a flamingo. My whole tree theme is going to based around this, I love him to bits.

Also included was a copy of Crochet Today which I'd never seen before, I can't take a photo of it as my sister has stolen it.

Thank you so much Yarnisfun, I couldn't have asked for a better partner.

LizzieMcGuire is my first swap partner from Germany. Here's all the awesome stuff she sent.

She sent me two magazines: A copy of Rebecca magazine in German, and a really cute paper craft magazine. She also included some postcards of what her town looks like.

She sent the prettiest sock yarn, two balls of matching acrylic yarn, some really cool German wool, and a super cute handmade clay pretzel.

She also sent along a bunch of yummy candy and some drink mix.

Thank you so much LizzieMcGuire! I absolutely love everything!

from lovely_gangster:

this is all that's left. My kiddies ate all the cookies and I ate all the cadbury! Here is a Cleo magazine and a beautiful handmade matryoshka doll.

i also ate all the candy, but there's lots of little trinkets to look at:
tea, gold findings, kitschy beads (my favorite are the little matryoshka charms), buttons, fabric, guitar picks, powdered candy in fruit shaped containers (the powder's gone now), and the best hot cocoas ever!

What a great week I'm having - I think there's a post-xmas explosion of mail as I just received a package from constantina in Singapore!

First off, look at the gorgeous stamps on the box:

Pocky, sushi-shaped candy, adorable erasers

'Hello Panda' strawberry and choc biscuits, cute pencils and Hi-Chew grape candy (not pictured as family have already devoured them -they are delish!)

Thanks so much constantina, makes me wanna visit Asia for all the cuteness and to see the giant squirrels on the stamps!

I received from cfbandit today!
She send me lovely wool for spinning:

First, there is some lovely brown shetland wool (well not some, but rather A LOT - 6ounces). It has a lovely chocolate brown colour, I tried to capture the colour in the following photo but it's a much warmer brown than it looks like here.

And she send me 2ounces of blue dyed merino which is really soft. And as an extra there were light blue lincoln locks to spin in!
Isn't that a great package?
Thanks you so much cfbandit!  Grin

Adorable muffin cases, stickers, Sharpie minis, a super kitsch card game and Haribo sweeties (we have Haribo here but not these cute froggy ones!) Grin
