I just received my swap package. I tired and quite cold owl from Canada just barely made it to my doorstep this afternoon. Luckily the poor thing is now warming up near the heater of the reptile room.
Below is what was delivered.
Thank you very much for the lovely package.

Only a delay in posting this since I was not notified that the owl and package had in fact arrived yesterday when I came home from work. So... today I took my package with me to work to open and ended up with a small audience.
Last but certainly not least... a keyhole scarf!!! It is made of some super soft wool and has the most awesome back story: Made of BFL that was sheared, spun, and dyed in Lizzie's home county. How amazing is that!!! And the yarn even came in Slytherin colors!!! I love it so much. I still cannot get over how soft it is- I'm talking possibly softer that Malabrigo soft people!!!
Thank you so very much Lizzie. I am sure you were quite worried about the owl and box since you mentioned it took over two weeks to arrive from when you shipped. I love absolutely everything and there were many praising comments from my co-workers as they watched me unwrap everything.

Time just seemed to fly by. I cannot wait until my owl arrives in Canada to my spoilee. Hopefully the trip goes well. I will be using one of the Post's owls since mine would not be able to carry the heavy package that I am sending. My poor owl just isn't "heavy duty" enough. I am planning on sending him out for a shorter delivery just so he feels all important and gets to stretch.

Well, I missed a week. Bloody me for being busy. Last week like this week just seemed to completely get away from me. I really liked having Friday off of work even if it meant working on Saturday or Sunday. I have some exciting things I am working on for my spoilee. I cannot wait until everything arrives so that I can send her kit off. :)
