Squee! Thank you so much @Trixie Shy for an awesome swap box! I feel utterly spoiled. It made for a great birthday! :) Now for pictures! (Just fyi, there's a lot) ;)

Opened the box to find perfectly packaged beautiful boxes.

Can you believe how much is in there?! Wow!

Harry potter legos!!! Awesome! I think my daughter is now obsessed with the game, too.

So many lovely carousel horses... I started tearing up.

A schleigh Pegasus and the most beautiful glass box. Full on happy tears now.

A very interesting unicorn book (that I'm already reading), sparkly unicorn birthday card with stickers, and a pair of tights for draculaura. <3

Last, but certainly not least, the ponies!!! Yes, I cried some more over blossomforth. She's been on our list for so long! Plus two others that were missing. Thank you for pony goodness! This last is a picture of everything together. I'm so spoiled! I love, love, love it all! (Especially that glass box) thank you @Trixie Shy !

I waaaas going to wait until my transfer application was approved...but I just went for it because everything was too tempting! I didn't get a picture of everything in the box but WOW there was a lot!!!

Here's the first cluster! The little pony got cut off a bit but she has a FLAMINGO ON HER FLANK!!! She was the first one I opened and I was so excited!!!! Also lots of cute books, stickers, and some seahorsey stuff!!! My cats were very drawn to the jingling of the balls when I was setting this picture up.

MORE FLAMINGO STUFF!! SO MUCH FLAMINGO STUFF!!!!
The cup and tissues will be very handy when I'm on the beach, yes!!! I really love the stickers and big bag too!! The bag is so huge I don't think it could fit into a picture if I tried.

PONIES!!!
I am SO EXCITED about the ponies Tak chose!!! Barnacle will be perfect for bringing along to the beach, especially with his hat!!! And I was so not expecting Baby Crumpet!! And the dress up evening wear Sunny Daze is a perfect addition to my Sunny Daze collection!!!
The pez was super great too because my Dad actually collects pez, and I forgot to save this girl MiB, so yay I can have a MiB one now!!!
I'm so happy with everything I got, thank you so much for the fifteenth time, Tak!!

I'm so glad you like it. I wanted your first swap to be good. ;) The flamingo pony was my Eevee's idea.

My box came today from @twishy!!!

Let me just say, she knocked it right outta the park for me. When my box came, I let it sit for about an hour because I thought to myself “I’m going to open this when I get home from work.”

Then I opened my box almost as quick as that thought came to me. Lol

The box, let me just say I friggin love it so much and so fitting for a summer swap box
07B9D065-DD18-433E-91D2-E81BF0044E72.jpeg
I very carefully opened the box to find this note and a bunch of adorable G4 stickers!
72FA65E3-D72F-4E94-9FC7-5032A235337F.jpeg
Now, this is where I brain farted and forgot to take pictures of all the little packages (which were extra cute with faces and stickers added to the wrapping paper. I was just too excited (and in a bit of a rush for work) to remember that tiny detail.

I got 4 beautiful G1’s Twilight is a beautiful upgrade for the one I got a couple weeks ago now. And an actual Starshine who is SO white!!! I am seriously in love. Pirate Rarity who is a set completer for me. Then with Ocean Gem (Seapony) and Wild Sweetie Belle I only need one more for each of those sets and they’re both still in box and on card. Whaaat!?! Certainly wasn’t expecting that.

Then when I thought it was all over I opened my letter to find another little extra!

PS: no idea where you found this amazing paper but I need some. Lol!!!

Thank you again @twishy for your generously thought of box. :xmashug:

I'm so glad you like everything still!!! The paper actually was part of a sticker book thing, it's very handy for swap boxes. :satisfied:
As for how they're still on card and in box...I have my ways...:winkpony:

When I pulled in today I saw a box sitting on my porch and I was like, "hmmm, I'm not expecting anything today" then I saw the pony stickers on it and I was like, "Oooooo, swap box"!!!! I made myself do my workout before I'd let myself open it, cause to be terribly honest I need all the motivation I can get to force myself to exercise :rolleyes: When I was done I didn't even change first, I was too excited! A big, honking, huge thank you to the wonderful @tsukikakushi for an amazing swap box! Your card was so sweet, I'm sorry to hear about your furbaby passing earlier this year, I can't believe you haven't done a swap since the pet swap, that was years back but it was a fun one. You sure knocked this one out of the park though! So without further ado, onto the braggy brags :D

Here's all my goodies before hand, they're on the prettiest lace runner that has shells and starfish on it. I'm trying to decide if I want to put it on the TV stand, the bookcase or my dresser....hmmmm....some adorable unicorn vinyls <3 and cute crochet seagull! Isn't he precious! See all those pretty shells and beachy stickers too?! Love it!

IMG_3744.JPG

And all opened, look at this big pile of awesomeness (and not my knees LOL)! A MIP Pony-Naut outfit *picks jaw off floor*, unicorn drink floats (even if I don't get to the beach I'm using these in the bathtub!), lace for the baby buggy which I desperately needed, Firefly's Adventure VHS (such a awesome piece of merch to display by my VHS Firefly), a "Day at the Beach" themed desktop sandbox! This made me LOL it's perfect and I'm totally bringing it to work and no, I'm not sharing, no one can play with my sandbox but me!, the string lights are hard to see but they're glittery seashells, so pretty and going in my kitchen, a beautiful Flower Dream, she's perfect!, and last but not least some burger and fries treats and burger and ketchup toys for Frank. It's like his own little cookout LOL He loves his treats and toys! He resisted for a millisecond for me to snap his pic LOL

Thank you again tsukikakushi!!! I love my box, I feel like I got a little bit of beach to put around my house to get my summer vibe going and the MLP items are just fabulous! I hope you have a great summer! :ponylove:

@Gingerbread , I'm so glad you enjoyed everything! I knew that sandbox was perfect; I know I've always wanted my own as a kid so no one would ruin my sancastles.:tongue:

My swap box arrived today! Thank you so much Uftaki! Look at all super cute pony wrapping paper!
24411

24413
Uftaki got me some gaming dice in my favorite color (sadly I actually really need a new set as I constantly loose them), chocolates and gummies from Purdy’s which I’ve never had so I’m looking forward to trying it after I have some dental work next week (I had a rather bad abscess so I will be getting a root canal :(.) Also, a MLP cup, RD hand sanitizer, trading card packs, a cutie mark crew series 3 blind box/bag/egg? A G4.5 Trixie with TAF silver stars to add to my Trixie army (ok, so I only have like 5-10 Trixie figures, but that’s probably close enough to be an army, right)? G1 baby Ember in blue, Big Brother Tex & best of all Big Brother Barnacle! I’ve now completed the 2nd set of Brothers so I was super excited about that!

But wait, it gets better, my swap partner clearly has magic powers because that cutie mark crew blind box turned out to be 1 of the 2 figures I wanted from the set!


24414

Then I opened the trading cards only to find not 1, but 2 Trixies!
24415

Clearly Uftaki is Great & Poweful!

Here is Trixie Shy approving of the new Angry Trixie!
24416

24417

Thank you so much Uftaki for so many wonderful things! And thank you all for making my first swap so wonderful!

PS- these trading cards are hilarious! Princess Cadance has a typo confusing her with pinkie pie (it says she’s an earth pony & “Pinkie loves her new Easy Bake Confetti Cake Cannon)!” Apparently Grubber & all the storm guards are hedgehogs which I didn’t realize & the Storm King is a Storm King (not sure what species that is)?

So cute!FA768121-97A7-43C7-BE70-48E49682823F.pngThen of course, the ponies! Gem Blossom, G3 Applejack, Gingerbread (I see what you did there lol), Pearlized Baby Firefly and Sunbeam!

Yay! Glad you liked everything, you were fun to shop for and I found some pretty good deals on the ponies. Anytime I see a Gingerbread on someone's wishlist I love to buy them one :tongue:

Got my parcel from @Winged Mirage ! So exciting to get that big box in the mail! I dug into the box as soon as I get it, but all I had time for was the unboxing... I had to run off to work as soon as I'd finished opening everything, thus why this is posted so late at night.

All the wrapping was just so shiny and lovely! I tried to save as much of it as I could! (lol) Lovely rainbows and beautiful peacock feather patterns! :D

Inside was a lot of lovely goodness, too!

So much pretty yarn! :D It feels so soft. I'll be able to make a lovely warm blanket, or something, out of all this! :D
24573

Plus a super-adorable little crafted plush bunny toy! She's adorable! :3
24574

And then three lovely G3 ponies!!! They're all SO beautiful! :D I've been looking for a couple of these girls for a while now, with no luck... so thank you SO much for these three! ^__^
24575

I'm in love with everything! Thank you so much for a wonderful swap package, @Winged Mirage ! :D

I’m so happy the package got there safely, and that you liked everything. I was worried I hadn’t gotten enough, after seeing everyone else’s packages.
