After a very sucky day yesterday I got to open a box of happiness. I know @Tak just had me for the Christmas swap so she probably was tired of shopping for me but I was stoked!!

First just look how adorable this paper is! I love it!
I laid it all out and started opening it when my son decided he now needed to be a part of the fun. Ruby was asleep somewhere so she missed out on the photo op. I can't wait to try these yummy peanut butter snacks, I've never seen these before! We already ate the chocolate bar. The HP blind bags are so much fun and both were new ones for us! The Lego was Moaning Myrtle that I had been trying to get! The hanger was HP himself!! So cute!
Now for the socks...
So many socks...
The fuzzy socks are so warm, I tried them on immediately, I love that purple color!!! These will be perfect this winter / spring as my feet stay cold all the time. My son did a little "squee" when he saw the set of The Mandalorian socks and immediately claimed his pair but I am keeping the rest!! That Baby Grogu is too cute and I love this set of socks.
This box was amazing and I thank you @Tak and E for putting it together for me (I know E helped a little :) )
sorry it took me all night and morning to get it posted

I’m so glad that you liked your box! <3 E did help. I wasn’t sure if the purple was deep enough. I wasn’t tired of shopping for you! I thought you’d be tired of getting me!

The purple is perfect! I love all purple but for clothes I like that deep purple. I love it all thank you!

Those mandalorian socks are so cute! And the little Harry too :smile:
He's on a broom! Adorable!

I'm the same way. I love purple, but in clothing I always go for dark colours. Given a choice I go for dark deep purple, but my bathroom is lilac as I didn't want it to be dark in there. (No windows) with my socks I don't really mind the hue of purple either. I'm just a nutter about socks. ;)

Well I feel dumb for not checking the Christmas swap partnerships before assigning the sock swap... :unsure: I was in such a hurry to get everyone shopping I completely forgot!

No worries. I like many of the things Octobermoon does, so it's great fun to shop for her. As long as she's happy. :)

I'm late to the party, but @Tak was my partner as well. :)

Ooooooh, ahhhhhh.

The mailbox was wrapped and I opened it, and there were even MORE presents inside! Sneaky! :)

20210126_234502.jpg


So, my cats generally have to be "inspectpurrs" when items come in. This is my cat Jack, and that gift he's sniffing? He would NOT. LEAVE. IT. ALONE. To the point that he was ready to open it himself! So I dropped the gift I was going to open, and opened the one that he was so interested in. It was cat treats and he could smell them THROUGH THE WRAPPING PAPER and packaging! :shock: He practically mauled me as I struggled to frantically open the tuna ones! He generally only gets treats on Friday evenings, because he's on a diet, but last night was special.:lolpony:

20210126_235115.jpg


Finally, everything unwrapped. I love all my new socks, and a party size bag of gummy bears (!!!) I had to kick Jack out in order to take the picture, otherwise he would have taken off with the treats. :)

Thank you so much, @Tak ! Everything is great and I can't wait to start using my fuzzy socks when my current ones go into the wash!

Squee! We’re so happy you like it. Eevee insisted that you needed the big bag of gummies. She loves those ones. She also said ‘she has cats? I want to get them something, too!’. She had so much fun shopping for you. I mostly just supervised. She’s thrilled you like it.

Seriously spoiled! Look at all those socks! And I can personally attest that the homemade goodies are perfectly eatable. But don't tell my husband...

Thank you so much for the thoughtful swap box of fun! Sorry the craft store overwhelmed you. I love everything! Thanks!

I'm glad you liked it! And I'm glad the candy is still good enough to eat. I had fun shopping for you! The craft store is so full of fun stuff and I loose all of my focus and start panicking. I hope you can make something with them! <3

E insisted on being in the photos, but Wesley wanted in on the action, too. E saw these socks and had to put them on right away. (She’s still wearing them) Wesley’s not sure what is so interesting about them.

Then a photo of everything. Lots of awesome socks. How did you manage to pick perfect ones Skybreeze? Plus some yummy goodies, a notebook especially for Eevee, and the beautiful card with the adorable stickers in it.

Wesley felt the need to find out why his girl was so excited and photo bombed, again. Here’s a closer shot of all the primo socks and extras.

The pups on all those socks are sporting cute glasses! She especially loves the fuzzy paw socks. Thank you again Skybreeze! Eevee couldn’t be happier. You packed a fantastic box for her.

There’s more than just Eevloution stickers in there. ;) I had to do a lot of research to make the second group of stickers as I haven’t the foggiest idea of what Among Us was. Lol

I’m happy she loves the socks! I knew exactly what I wanted to get her as soon as I found out I got her. Sadly all the Pokémon socks I could order were all over $40 for one pair!! So I found the fuzzy paw socks I thought she’d love them. I was happy I was able to find some Eevee for her that she can use for school or a journal keep her thoughts in. And candy is always scrumptious.
