DAY THREEWhat's inside? Mmmmmm....so MUCH chocolate! I am going to set aside most of these goodies for Christmas. I especially love the "Ritter Sport" chocolate, Vany has send me this brand a few times now and its awesome. I also love dark chocolate and she has included pretty much all dark chocolate. DAY FOUR
On day four I received these amazing wee skeletons all handmade by Vany using those fusing beads. I bought a set of these once but I never managed to make anything quite so epic as a skeleton! Unfortunately the white skeletons leg got damaged on his way from Germany to New Zealand, but I can fix it easily - I love these guys. I strung them all up together in our hallway - they are a permanent fixture, not just a Halloween decoration.
DAY FIVEHere's the packaging for day five - which I love! I just knew from the zebra print it was going to be AMAZING!
So day 5 wasn't too creepy but it was full of something else I LOVE - Hello Kitty goodies. However, Vany did manage to find a creepy kitty pez dispenser and charm. Vany also left a special note for Rich on Hello Kitty Day - to acknowledge his further descent into Hello Kitty Hell.
DAY SIXToday I received four amazing handmade zombie bookmarks - I haven't had a decent bookmark in literally YEARS and I always end up using a bus ticket, envelope, flier or whatever else I can find lying around so these bookmarks will make for some happy books.
I love the beads on the bookmarks!
It was hard to pick a favourite - but I think I like this one best of all!
Finally the note that came with the bookmarks - it made me smile.
That brings you all up to date with my swap package so far - I can't wait to find out what else is inside. I love surprises!
Those gifts are just fabulous! The skeletons and the zombie bookmarks are such cool things to have. x
