I've received a fantastic pencilcase stuffed with cool writing supplies from la_chrystelle. She sent way early and set the swap bar high!

Here's the pencilcase:

The lining is the same pretty pink fabric with sparkly swirls:

And here are the contents! I asked for a fountain pen or a marker/pen that wrote in pink or orange, and she sent both!

Clockwise from top left: awesome coloured staples; a sharpener for pencils of two sizes; a fountain pen with purple and pink ink; a mechanical pencil; a hot pink highlighter; lovely smooth-writing pens in dark blue, pink, light blue, and orange; scissors; tape; and five colours of sticky notes.

Sweet haul, eh? I'm still working on la_chrystelle's package, but I kind of like it this way because now I know the quality I have to match. Hurray for early shippers!

is that super tape?  if so, that stuff is the bomb!  I love super tape and use it for a lot of my paper craft stuff.

I've gotta get my package in the mail- I'm totally done, I'm just lazy about going to the post office  Tongue

I am glad you like everything! I was lucky that you liked bright colors and everything in the shop nearby it bright colored haha Smiley

Super tape? no I don't think it's that. haha

I got it! I got it!

this is everything, with two heads and the beautiful rainy day outside

the cool pencil sharpener:

the wheel thingies (excuse the brain fart, I can't remember what they're called in English) actually rotate when you sharpen a pencil! (or a finger, I guess, I didn't try)

the pencil case itself:

it's knitted and felted and I love it

and all the pens & pencils, with pirate pencil toppers, a ruler pencil, a supreme court hammer-pencil, a SNAKE PEN and pins and stickers....

And of course- A Pilot Pen. According to Kirsten's husband, the best pen ever made (I concur.)

Oh, Oh. And Altoids. Cinnamon Altoids. Just when I was running out of  Grin
