@Moondream, I'm so glad you liked your box. I was fretting that I didn't have enough "celestial" things in it, then once I saw your post I went "DUH, PONIES". So I guess I came through on that point!

When I do these swaps, I try to hit to hit every "like" the person wants, and the jerky was the BIG one standing out to me. So when I saw the 1 pound bag, I grabbed it and ran for the register! Sparkleberry Swirl looks so happy to be eating some. :)

I have one more pony to send you Moondream. I goofed and didn't have it sent to me in time. So I'll send it either this weekend or Monday.

I'm so glad you both liked your items! :) Enjoy and happy holidays!

You gave me three absolutely gorgeous celestial ponies. I couldn't ask for anything more perfectly celestial :D Believe me you went above and beyond with the jerky. It was really kind of you to get me something so special and so freakin yummy :ponylove: It's sad to say but it's already gone! My fiance found the bag and I had to share. The only problem with that is he's 21 and 6'5. He can eat a horse and his favorite snack is jerky too so it went super fast. Oh seriously?? That's really kind of you to send it! I always love checking for pony mail :D

Thank you again and I hope you have a totally awesome holiday too!

LOL!!!! That was how she was sent to me from purchasing, so I thought I'd keep her there, since she was packed up nice and safe! It baffled me too when I opened the package!!! LOL

She pretty much spoiled me rotten! Here we go.....

Here is the box after I opened it:

All of the pretty, wrapped presents! :)

To save a bit of loading time, here's all of those beautiful gifts unwrapped:

The ornaments made their way onto my tree (had to kind of hide the ice cream cone one from my cats.... I love it, though!). Candies.... YUM! Dashie is on my work bag and the three lovely girls (one a replacement from my childhood!) are waiting to be put into the collection. For the record, she still smells!!!! That was the very first thing I did when I saw her..... smell her! LOL!

Up close pic of the new ladies:

Thank you SO much, Marble Dragon!!!! I loved everything a lot! :)

I am getting worried, I seem to be the only one left who has not received their Secret Santa package. Maybe I was a bad pony girl??

I realized I haven't posted my box opening yet, things being so hectic I hadn't realized I didn't post here. I got a package from a Harley, sadly I didn't see whose username that was, but dear thank you so much!

I love all the dear ponies you sent me and the decorations were perfect for my wee tree! Everybody loved the yummy treats you baked, and you knew me so well with the reeses, gum, and stickers. The candle is wonderful and it fills the air with the most wonderful scent~

I haven't gotten mine either so you are not the only one. Maybe we are both bad mares. Hmm, shouldn't have tortured those snails before I ate them! Jk
Thanks Marble Dragon, the Post Office has been flooded with packages so ours must be making its way to us. Wishing you all a Merry Pony Christmas! May all your pony wishes come true!

I'm so glad you liked everything, @Gingerbread! :satisfied: I'm also super relieved you got it before Christmas, I wasn't sure it was going to make it on time! And do be sure to tell me how the recipes go when you get to make them!

I have to apologize to @icecreamgirl for posting my brag so late... Doesn't change how much I liked my box, though!

WARNING: Pic heavy!

Box moment! I LOVE the wrapping paper you used.

Also, obligatory cat-in-the-box:
IMG_0681.JPG

Unfortunately the "M" in "Merry Christmas" got lost somewhere in transit, so we have to settle for an "Erry Christmas". Silly post people!

And now, amazing excitement-induced framing skills:
IMG_0682.JPG

Uhh... Just... Ignore that...

Hey, look at this cute Mickey Mouse bag instead!
IMG_0683.JPG

This is definitively going to be useful when we go to my Gran's for Christmas Eve later today! It reminds me of the 50s Mickey shorts, specifically "Pluto's Christmas Tree". (That's my brother's hand, btw)

But what is Christmas without goodies to eat!
IMG_0685.JPG

I like everything (Reese's! YAY) but OMG those chocolate orange slices. Deeeeeee-lish!

More goodies, non-edible this time:
IMG_0686.JPG

Tartan socks, a beautiful scarf and a foxy-woxy!

And now... The ponies!!
IMG_0690.JPG

Mistletoe! I almost gave up on her after missing my chance of getting her three times in a row. She even has her bow necklace!

And this was a real surprise:
IMG_0687.JPG

WTFudge Love Token?! Knowing she's an European exclusive, I sure as heck wasn't expecting her, of all ponies! Especially alongside another one!

To finish off, here is a (rather messy) shot of everything:
IMG_0684.JPG


Thank you so much, icecreamgirl! Hope you (and everyone here at the TP) have a wonderful Christmas!! :winkpony:

I finally opened my box from: Gotbunny. Here are the pictures. I want to thank you very much for this. I love the ponies and the Nurse pony is awesome. Starry Wings is so cute. I think I may have not put the hello kitty socks in the picture but they are very cute. They were the perfect snack when I brought the box over to my sister in law's house. :) The sea pony is very cute too.

Squeeeee! I received the most wonderful surprise package from my Secret Santa, littledreamer! I usually know what most of my gifts are so it was exciting to have a box full of surprises. Everything was wrapped with care and even included a plush red stocking (see first photo of wrapped goodies). :) My package included a minty and oh so cute, Baby Sunnybunch, an elegant Satin 'N Lace with nice pink hair, a Funrise Santa Applejack Plush, Sparkle Blind Bags **Gilda the Griffon** and **Sunshower Raindrops**, MLP 2015 Calendar, Sparkle Holiday Stickers, 2 Jumbo Bags of Skittles, Ginger Snaps, and oodles of Peppermint Puffs and Candy Canes. All of this came with an adorable Kitty Christmas card with notice of another EU MLP pony on its way! :p Thank you so much

@littledreamer I'm so so glad you like everything! I was a little worried you wouldn't dig it because I couldn't find many pastel ornaments. The ponies look so cute under your tree!

My first partner was Skippety-Doo!

My box was TOTALLY awesome. We didn't have a tree topper this year, but we do now! Father Christmas is sitting up there right now!

I can't wait to try my mug where I can kick marshmallows into it. The snowball has been a blast to throw against the wall and watch the pretty lights! And yea, Tangerine Sunset - I have wanted her for a while because her colors are SO pretty. Thank you so much!

My second partner was...Peppermint Truly! This was how the box arrived at my house:

Thank you, PT! I loved my box. The chocolate was eaten immediately. :) I hung the penguin ornament on the tree! The ducky will be joining the baby sea ponies for a dip, and I love my Christmas G3s! :) And Mainsail! Thank you!!!

Oddly enough, the "ugly sweater" theme has kind of followed me this year, for some reason, so I really loved the card.

Thank you both very much. They really made my Christmas!

I just came back from the mail box with a very special present from @darcerin

10885261_745251318890089_8543559905743675183_n.jpg


Backcards!! I've never taken interest in them until now. I adore seeing the card art and reading the cute stories. I think you may have just sparked a new passion in my pony collecting! :D

But that's not all! When I pulled out this very special pony I started to cry. This is my very first Daddy pony! He's actually my first male G1 pony!

988926_745251292223425_8816968416746137155_n.jpg


Check it out! It's Daddy Bright Bouquet :ponylove: He's so beautiful! His hair is silky and his colors are so bright. Thank you so very much for sending this very special pony! :D

@littledreamer Sorry again for forgetting that important detail. I guess you had a very secret Santa! I'm a well meaning person but I often forget things or screw thing up. I guess I'm sort of like Derpy :lolpony:

Better late then never, I got an awesome box from skycakes. How did you know I was running low on kitty litter?

So many neat presents inside,
So my 2 year old ran with the coloring books

There was some nice smelling candles, three cute plushes, some beading supplies, yarn, ribbon, gummies, bath gel, dark chocolate, a cute pink bunny ( already up on my bunny shelf)

I was really spoiled in the pony department, look at that pink hair on the twins! Yay, last baby I needed to finish my newborn twins. A baity perfume puff and sweetheart sister.

Thank you so much Skycakes, you really made my Christmas as this and my other swap was my only pony gifts.
