My partner pinkmichk asked me to post pics of what I sent them. So here we go, sorry lots of pictures! I took all separate pics, I will think of that next time!

I chose a Dutch book for her little boy. It is called "Agent en Boef" - Policeman and Crook. Around this book I tried to come up with things that fitted the book.
I made a bookmark - one side a crook, one side a good boy:

Here is a picture of the book, along with some "bookworms". I don't know if it is an English word as well, it is Dutch for someone that reads a lot.

A little bag with a car and a creation of iron beads made by my youngest son:

In the bag the biggest project and something I am particular proud of:

Little fingerpuppets that fits the characters of the book! All made of felt. It took WAY longer than I estimated, but who cares when this is the result!

For her girl, I chose an English book, one of my favourite writers ever: Matilda by Roald Dahl.

You can also see a pink bookmark and a star of iron beads made by my oldest son.

I love bags, can you already tell? Made a purple dotted bag, both sides are different:

A picture of both sides, the heart has also two different sides and is removable.

And last, but not least I made a handpuppet. My first try at this, so I'm not completely satisfied, but this is really the best I can do at this moment! She looks pretty nevertheless!

I stuffed some candy in the box as well and I added a little note with all the items.
We had fun crafting and look forward to see what you made for us!  Cheesy

Thank you!

And pinkmichk, I am glad that the bookworms are being "eaten" by your son and that your daughter enjoys reading her book!

I couldn't stop crafting, we had so much fun! Yay for liking to craft and for partners liking their package  Grin

We got one of ours!!!  Thank you very much pjr107!
My good camera got too much sand in it so I had to take some not so great pictures. Sorry.  Sad

First the case!

Inside were many detective tools.

Also 2 books (one not pictured)

And an angry birds bag.

He is over the moon with it and has already started reading a book!

He tells me he is a real detective now.  How funny that we chose similar themes!

I like your investigator, Jen sews! Cheesy  PJ what a great idea the suitcase with all this cool stuff!! And that is a nice bag too. Great job!

We received today! Here's what we got from pinkmichk:

This if for the youngest, Joris. He got a book about aliens: Aliens love underpants. Hahaha, hilarious!
With a sock alien, self melted crayons heart shaped and a bookmark with his initial. (you can see that in the next pic)
In this picture you can see tic tac toe, which will come in handy when we will be travelling.  Cheesy

And next:

This if for the oldest, Thijs. He got a book by the writer Enid Blyton, Mr. Galliano's Circus.
He got a sock monkey, also these self melted heart shaped crayons and you can see both bookmarks. The bookmarks are made by Molly, my partners daughter: great job!

We also got some candy, had to hide that! Oh and one more pic of the sock critters, a close up:

Thanks Michelle and Molly! And hug Oscar for us! It was a nice swap  Cheesy

For my 2 year old son we received:
Clifford the big red dog, a clifford lacing card, a dog print pillow case, and some playdough with a doggie cookie cutter. you can also see the cute clifford bookmark sticking out from the book!

For my 4 year old daughter we received:
Olivia and the babies, a baby diaper for her dolls, a little fabric chalkboard, some cute heart pony tail holders, and a cute red bag.

And here are the kids with their new books!

Thanks mom2em. the kids love their stuff and their new books! We love both series in our house! So now to read these ones!

We received, and not only have I been horribly slow about getting pictures here, I just realized that the photos I do have are lacking in several important respects: the book is missing from the pictures, one item is blurry, and a wearable is not photographed being worn.  *sigh*  But I suppose some pictures are better than no pictures, so here goes (and I will try to remember to photograph the wearable when next my daughter puts it on):

The book shipped separately, so I forgot to take a picture, but it was The Little Red Hen - wonderful, classic choice that we, amazingly, did not own yet!


(She is holding the second item backward; that's a dry erase board, and she is loving it!)

A gardening apron:

with seeds:

(There were more seeds, but the kids pulled the packets out one at a time, and I didn't think you wanted a zillion photos of individual seed packets. lol)

and tools for planting the seeds:

A bright, fun newspaper-bead necklace:

to go with this awesome pillowcase dress:

And we had to laugh, because these things match my kitchen, which is red, white, black, and yellow with chickens!:

    (That is her apron held up against my curtains.)

Thank you again!  You guys did a fantastic job picking things for us!  Sophia is really looking forward to planting her seeds as soon as we get a spare moment to breathe.
