I finally got my ass into gear, my secret santa package is now ready to ship on monday. I'll see if there is some sort of express shipping option that'll mean it might get there in any sort of timely manner.

Got home and found some packages waiting for me! A very nice surprise after I had to shell out to fly home since the pass was closed.

My sister immediately insisted we play Carcassonne and kicked my butt at it, which is fairly typical for playing board games with my sister. The little armadillo's name is Gander and it will stay well out of the way of any cooking that happens. (Also, apparently there are several dishes in Finland called "emergency desserts" that as far as I can tell are just really quick to make in case something goes disastrously wrong.)

I love the idea of "emergency desserts"! And I'm glad your day got better :)

My Secret Santa turned up. I should know who it was from because I told them it was me...but the best thing about my memory I forgot who it was from, so I get a nice surprise.

I finally got my package shipped. It MIGHT still arrive in time, but I don't have high hopes.

Some rough calculations indicate that my present will probably not arrive in time for Xmas, but shortly thereafter.

I believe mine will also arrive after Christmas, which I'm sorry about, but it will get there eventually, I promise! (Or if it doesn't, it won't be due to not being sent!)

Will there be photos to come? :3

My favourite part has always been the photos, even when I haven't partaken in Secret Santa. I always thought it was awesome seeing them! :D

I may or may not have got something today. By that I mean I got a package I hadn't ordered, and it's not being opened until the 25th - because mystery packages at this time of the year can only mean one thing.

Either that or some other person failed to warn me I'd be getting a mystery gift. Either way I'm happy!

My secret santa has arrived.

Image

It feels kinda light. Like a T-shirt or something in here.

Image

Oh! Well, this is unexpected. Though now, I'm pretty sure I know who my Secret Santa was. I recognize the handwriting on the letter as well.

Image

I think he'll fit in just fine around here.

Thank you very much, Secret Santa.

These are the presents! I got ahead of myself and opened the tiny packet before I took a photo, but here they are!
And in their unwrapped state!

Here are close-ups!

I spent like 20 minutes fiddling with this puzzle to complete it. xD

Image
I've not omnom-ed the entirity of this chocolate yet, but I did try a couple of pieces, and it was very tasty. x3

Image
Also got this book, and from the skim I had of the back and the editor's note I am quite excited to read it in full! :D

I also got a card for the Esoteric Order of Dagon, Pelagic Knights of Y'ha-Nthlei!

Such a lovely spring day this Christmas Eve! (Seriously, 12-15 degrees. I have never experienced a winter this warm). Merry Christmas!

Thank you very much, the gifts made me smile. Really need to watch Adventure Time.

Best item was the Manga: Okami Kodomo No Ame to Yuki. I love that anime, well remembered of my art last year. Awestruck seeing it, needed something positive, this past year and especially the past few weeks haven't been good for me emotionally.

Dear Secret Santee,

Your gift just came back to me from your countries postal service... Im not sure if they couldn't read my hand writing or if your geographical region just hates me, I have had lots of trouble shipping things to that area. Sorry I will get it back in the mail tomorrow.

That sucks, Hosk! But I'm sure your Santee will feel the wait was worth it :) (Not just saying that because mine will get there late as well and I hope my Santee will also be understanding).

Bwa ha haa! It was me all along! Glad you enjoy the gifts. :D (I don't know who put those white stickers on tho'.)

Haven't received anything from my Santa yet, but I understand things can take longer than expected.

I did, to mark them as mine when they were put among the rest of the Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. :P

Thank you very much for the gifts. They were awesome, and the chocolate was consumed within the day. x3

I was visiting my parents over Christmas, and I got back home today, and my totally sweet secret Santa gift was waiting for me :)

Image

As you can see I got a draft set of BFZ, some Star Wars Eraseez, and 4 LRRmtg pins. I'm going to save the packs for a draft, if I remember, I'll post what the rares are after I do so. I don't have any LRRmtg pins, so that's super exciting. And I got the following Star Wars Eraseez

Image

R2D2 and Kylo Ren. I cant seem to get Ren's light saber into his hand but according to the back of the package he is the "Deluxe Silver edition" so I assume he is rare.

Thank you very much to my Secret Santa, you didn't include your forum name, so I wont share your real name, but please let me know who you are :D

My secret santa present arrived!

Pasta?

Image
Oh, there's more stuff in the box!

Image
A lovely note - it's from Avistew! The card mentions that every judge needs a familar... I wonder what that means?

Image
A 3D printed LRR logo gift card holder.

Image
It slides open to reveal...

Image
A Judge's Familiar promo! And there's still something in the box...

Image
A knitted baby Judge's Familar!

This was one of the coolest presents I've ever received. Thank you!
I'll have to come up with a name for them. They'll be sitting on my desk keeping me company.

Dear secret santee, I just realised I forgot to include the pack of dutch stroopwafels I had intended to send you with the secret santa package. I'll see if I can send you some in the near future!
