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.

Wow, I'm so happy you and your girls really loved everything! Thank you for all the lovely comments.

I still can't believe it got there on your birthday. Talk about lucky Grin.

I'm glad you liked the Santa ornament. I saw it and I knew it was perfect. I'd love to see your tree once its decorated Wink.

Sorry to hear that your magazine has been stolen, good luck retrieving it from your sister!

I just received an awesome package from Octopusinclothing! The outside envelope was decorated with cute Hello Kitty tape, a bunny envelope and doraemon paper. It made me smile when I saw it. I caught a nasty cold on the weekend as was feeling quite yucky when I got home from work but as soon as I got the package I felt ten times better. Better than medicine Smiley

I received an Allure magazine, US Weekly magazine, sour peach rings, sour neon crawlers, jolly rancher candy, licorice and four different types of fabric. Thank you SO MUCH Octopusinclothing, your package is great!!!!!!

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!
