I'm so behind, it's ridiculous.  Everything looks fantastic though.  It's really fun to see what everyone got.

I especially love the sweater like stockings and the long mittens.  I've lost mine again, so I'm currently coveting everyone else's until I can find mine again.   Smiley

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Oh my goodness I can't believe everything that loobie sent me. I just hope my package gets to her soon to kill some of the serious swap anxiety I'm experiencing. She was smart and made sure things were labelled "Air Mail", which I guess makes them arrive sooner? I don't know, I sent mine international flat rate, so now I'm afraid it's going to take forever. Anyone have any experience with international flat rate boxes?

Anyway, here is my amazing package! First, a group shot:

Here is a closer shot of all of the store-bought stuff, along with a crochet scrubbie that somehow worked its way in. I don't know why I didn't rotate it before uploading. Roll Eyes

I already popped some of the poppers, you can see the goodies that came out of them below the box--little plastic toys. There was also a bad joke and paper crown in each one. How did you know how much I love holiday poppers?! I've taken to getting them every year. Grin There are also some ridiculously delicious chocolates. Since they're from the UK, they have nutritional information in Joules and kcal, which greatly pleases the scientist in me. Grin The "fairy lights" are usb-powered bright blue stars that I immediately pulled out in plugged in to my computer. The double decker bus and gold bag are both teas, I am in the process of making some of the gold now (it's called "Russian Caravan"). The crochet scrubbie is green and white, my favorite color combination--most of the handmade things are in the same color scheme. Grin

Here we have the incredibly cute and well designed nativity-themed Christmas cards. I am excited about sending them out. Then, over to the left, we have three hand-bound short stories by NEIL GAIMAN, who is my favoritest author ever. For anyone interested, the stories are "The Case of the Four and Twenty Blackbirds", "How to Talk to Girls at Parties", and "I Cthulhu".

This stocking is AMAZING and gorgeous. It's green and white, again ( Grin ), and super pretty. You can't see it too well, but there's also a Neil Gaiman shrinky dink cell phone charm, two necklaces with matching earring sets, and a super pretty beaded bracelet. You're right loobie, it's a little large, but that's actually super awesome because it makes a perfect anklet. Wink

Whooo science stuff! Loobie decorated a tin with science-y goodness (food related molecules, including amino acids and some things I don't know the purpose of offhand. Whoo wikipedia!). The tin is a recipe box, so she included some dividers and index cards to get me started. She also got me some of that sweet hydrophobic sand and bright orange putty, both from the UK science museum.

Finally, we have an adorable matching picnic set, complete with tupperware, little placemats, napkins, plasticware + sleeve, and little bags to hold it all.

Thank you so much loobie! I can only hope that I sent you enough goodies to equal your amazing package.

I love love love that picnic set!!!

Also, making stained glass cookies is one of my fave holiday pasttimes.... except I do it the cheap way  Embarrassed and just use crushed jolly ranchers.

Fantastic packages all around!
