I came home from work to find a giant package in our Canada post box. I was super excited, because I knew it was from my bestie, @Skybreeze
She did not disappoint. Can we talk about the packaging? Beautiful, but good Lord woman, PUT DOWN THE TAPE. It took 30 minutes to unwrap and I needed scissors!

I’ve been chasing this Groucho princess and Talk a lot for the last couple years. So happy to complete two sets.


The Butterick pattern is to make a stuffed Grumpy bear. I’m dying to make one.

I’m a sock addict, but Sky knows I’m an outdoor girl, so she got me awesome wool socks. So pretty too

I can’t wait to build my Kit Kat cabin.

My card came with Pony stickers.

The Cabbage patch was one I didn't have and she's a red head, which is a bonus. View attachment 35086View attachment 35087View attachment 35088View attachment 35089View attachment 35090View attachment 35091View attachment 35092View attachment 35093View attachment 35094

Oh, and the box had some stowaways too. My HQG1 ponies came along for the ride.

Thank you Skybreeze, you are an amazing friend. I love ya!
Congrats on getting an awesome box! Love the holiday armadillo card :lolpony: And I hope when you make him you’ll share a pic of Grumpy Bear!

I think I'm the first recipient! I'm off to open and take pics!!! :D

OK! So, after hours of "how the heck do I share ALL these photos that show off ALL this awesome", I figured out I can share my Google Photo Album!


My Santa was JadeCade and let me say, after a really difficult week, this honestly made me feel WORLDS better. JC KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK. The ornaments made my jaw drop, and they are going on my 5 foot tree tomorrow. I have new ponies for my collection and a ton of lovely chocolate and tea to eat and drink! I had to snap a quick picture of the unicorn ornament and pop it back in its box because I don't trust my cats to not knock it over. There would be very real tears if that happened, because I *ADORE* it, and I think it's going to be a year-round item to go with my blown glass ornaments!

EEEEIIIIIII, That keychain!!!! GIRL! YOU GET ME! :D :D :D

Those wax melts? I don't have a wax melter YET, but they smell DIVINE. I kind of don't want to melt them! :) Scent addiction!!!

You can see my su-purr-visor Idge in a few of the pics. She wandered off because I was too slow opening gifts, and came back later to see my progress. :p

@JadeCade, THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

oooh... I'll have to drop in on that knitting/crochet thread at some point. :3

But first... my package arrived! :D Skybreeze was my Secret Santa, and I swear, I almost didn't want to open the presents, they all looked so beautiful! I am definitely saving all those lovely paper poinsettias and bows. :3 And the llama wrapping paper was absolutely adorable! XD Skybreeze always goes above + beyond with her boxes, and this certainly was no exception. Plus, "holiday armadillo". Love it. XD

from Skybreeze 1.JPG

(also, I will be finding glitter and confetti everywhere for ages. :lolpony: )

All her gifts were fantastic! The Hershey's Kisses are just such quintessential Christmas treats, and Mom + I will crack into the tea on Christmas, while watching Christmas movies. :3 Looking forward to seeing what little treats are in the Kinder Eggs, too. :3 And that little raccoon ornament is just ADORABLE! X3

from Skybreeze 2.JPG



Then came all the amazing Pony stuff! As mentioned, above + beyond! First off were these two... absolutely BEAUTIFUL handmade ornaments. One with Gingerbread, the other with Merry Treats. I have no idea how you transferred the images on, but they're lovely! :D
from Skybreeze 3.JPG


Then the ponies themselves! Basic Fun versions of Gusty + Sparkler, so pretty. :3 The Light Brite pony Peggy Mane - she is so pretty! I love her translucent coloured mane. She was one I really wanted out of that set, so I'm super happy to have her. :smile: And then... mail order pearly baby Blossom! OMG! :shock: Thank you, @Skybreeze , for one AMAZING box. Merry Christmas! :D

Woo!! So happy your box finally found it's way to you. Also happy to see that the bows and flowers made it in good condition too. The ornaments were actually a new crafty thing I wanted to try, I actually used printable water slide paper for the images to go on. Just made a couple ponies in photoshop, printed on the paper, slid them on to the ornaments and sealed them. I do wish you can see Gingerbread a bit better but it looks pretty on the tree. lol Also, I grabbed the Raccoon because Toronto is known for them now, so I thought I'd send a little Toronto to the west coast.

So I just received my boxes from @Skycakes & @Cactusflower. I will post one at a time:

I got a huge box from @Skycakes and there was lots of treasures inside. But my favourite of the group was a beautiful handmade Wind Whistler. She’s so cute and soft. Lots of crafting things and goodies
348EEE6B-A8F4-4059-AE40-3702A2EFBFFE.jpegC0B556EA-9CBA-4EB1-8415-DE79EDD691B3.jpeg30CBAEEB-F0F4-40E4-A0C1-38223066FBFE.jpegFB944919-47A8-4B03-95C1-99A5775CA08C.jpegEDC573B5-445E-4E3D-86FB-DD6935C47DDE.jpeg
And the two ponies I got are Hula Hula and little Spunkie. Both are relaxing at the spa and I will post new photos of them post spa day.

Then, this afternoon came my box from my dear friend @Cactusflower!
She spoiled me and I am delighted that I now own my very own special to me Mountain Boy, Lightning. @Cactusflower knew I wanted him and that I would’ve totally just bought him from her but she gave him the extra TLC he required and sent to me for this swap. I love him. Also my G4’s that now have me just that much closer to completing my G4 quest. (One of my RD’s smell delightfully of peppermint, I’m obsessed.) She also knows how much I love sweet and savoury snacks.

A BIG thank you to both @Skycakes & @Cactusflower who both put a lot of time and effort into my boxes. I love them both. Thank you, thank you.

Im gald you liked everything. I had a fun time shopping for your stuff. :) I threw in windwhistler from Macroons tutorial for unicorns on Youtube. Though she didnt make any pegasus but only unicorns. I also too love Wind whistler. Who I feel is very misunderstood just because she uses big words. I hope you like the mashem blossom too I thought they were a cute extra. :)
