I'm glad you enjoyed your goodies, trillian!
I'll post a better pic tomorrow as soon as I find my camera cable.

travelbug's package arrived today, but it's still at the post office until I can pick it up tomorrow  Tongue This is worse than waiting for it- knowing it's here, but being unable to open it!


I'm open to personal swaps!
If anyone would be willing to make me a corset, I'd happily carpet-bomb them with goodies ^_^
I'm also looking for long skirts and hairsticks.

Look what she sent me:

and a lot of kool-aid
Isn't that a great package? I know you're all jealous now...  Wink

I'm currently knitting that jacket on the front of your Knit-n-Style.

Have fun with the Kool-aid  Smiley

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

My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here My parcel's here !!!!!

Ok it's actually at the post office (the wrapper's torn, so the postman couldn't send it over) but it's here!!

The funny thing is, when he rang the doorbell there were stuff for me to sign, and I got so hyped up thinking it was my parcel and when it turned out that they weren't, I got the "ahh, damn" feeling, then he passes me the parcel collection slip! Yay!

Will go to get it once my dad gets back. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Thanks Trillian!

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!

This is my awesome second package from Germany!

I love the diddl magazine with stickers, it's so cute. The ornaments are a popular color scheme in Germany right now, I really like them. The candy looks super yummy. I can't wait to try it. Kianee also sent some great postage stamps for my collection. My favorite thing is the advent tea. You get a different tea bag everyday starting on the first of December till Christmas. I can't think of a better way to start counting down the days then with a nice cup of tea.

Thank you so much Kianee! I really love everything.
