    My box came today and I couldn’t be more excited. Firstly, I must say that the ridiculous amount of tape made me giggle and I knew who my partner was before looking at the return address. (Halloween swap I had @Uftaki and had a LOT of tape to seal in the spooky goodness.) Then I get later one off and find this,

    Girl’s got mad jokes. I laugh pretty loudly upon seeing this. This box is now dubbed the official traders box. Kinda like the sisterhood of the travelling pants.

    When I finally got into the box it was filled with wonderful little packages of pure joy.
    Santa spoiled me rotten but I must say the chocolate will not last long. And Friendly is up on display with Princess Tiffany again, and the CMC have been reunited. The mystery posters are currently being flattened so I can put them up with my ponies (I got a Rainbow Dash one and Pinkie & Fluttershy one).

    Thank you again @Uftaki!! I am totally in love with everything.

    @Skybreeze - I am so glad you found the "official traders box" hilarious. It just fit the poster box so perfectly, I knew I had to use it. xD Actually, as soon as I learned I had you as a swap partner, I was amused and hoped that the box you sent me would fit whatever I was going to send. (I also had to tape the outer paper up so much because it's old paper and would disintegrate with even the slightest bit of water, so... not good for mailing in winter. c.c; )

    Glad the box arrived to you safe and sound! And that you love everything. :D I had fun going around picking up all the little things to put inside. :)

    I met with Skybreeze on Monday in Toronto and for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of meeting her in person, I can tell you she is just as fantastic and beautiful in person as she is on here. As I watched her get out of the car, there was no mistaking that she was carrying presents. I became pretty excited and correctly guessed that she was my swap partner. What a lovely visit we had, as I unpacked my gifts. The ironic part about my package is I received one of my most wanted ponies. I've been drooling over Lemon Treats lately, because I just love her colours and there she was and smelling so heavenly. Also, Rattles completes my Newborn twins collection, so YAY. I love the pint glass and now want all the glasses. Apparently, the fun is not over, because I hear there is one thing missing. I don't really get gifts anymore, so it was awesome to open a bunch of presents. Also, I ate the candy, which is why it's not pictured ;)

    I’m so happy I was able to give you your gift in person. It was a thrill seeing you open up each package and your excitement was wonderful to see.

    Choosing the ponies literally happened by fluke, but I’m glad to know they’re getting you that much closer to completing your herd.

    Honestly, your too sweet!! I only wish we had a bit more time to “bond” over our mutual love of toys a bit more. But we couldn’t put onto our hostages much longer. ;p

    I received my box from @Gingerbread

    It was full of some lovely extras. A beautiful pinkie pie ornament, a cute snoopy notepad, some Mickey disney socks (yay!) and cute Santa slippers, plus some yummy treats and a lovely smelling soap in the owl musical box

    Just had an absolutely lovely meeting with @Cactusflower ... who was my Secret Santa. :3 I couldn't wait to open them after all. ;3 So many wonderful, lovely goodies! An absolutely adorable card, and a cute light-up snowman and a little solar-powered dancing elf. I'll have to find a really sunny spot to display him. :3 Also looking forward to trying the popping candy, seeing how it'll remind me of pop rocks. Anyone else remember pop rocks? (lol) Can't see the mug too well in the photo, but it's of Mickey and Donald, and it looks like it'll be just perfect for hot chocolate. :3

    And, of course, the ponies! :D Ahh... such pretty girls! ^__^ Bright Night is absolutely lovely... and then there's the adorable Cheerilee and the Ponymania Pinkie Pie! :D

    Thank you so much for all the awesome presents, Cactusflower! :D

    Ok, so I freaked out when I went to the mailbox tonight after my yoga class. I love Skybreeze. These are amazing and I actually wear pins on my coats all the time. Thank you so much. I need to know where you got these.
