Wow! What a great box! LOVE the painting - great job Waylah! Such a cute custom too!

Can I ask, what are all those bags of animals, are they plastic figures, toys or something else?

They're like little puzzles. I had to put them together, and the little paper in the bag tells about that animal

Thanks guys!
I'm glad you like your box jeapos :D

The little animals are called yowies; they are all Australian and New Zealand animals. They were around when I was a kid.
To do the snow leopard I had to get the hang of the air brush. It was fun!

I got my box and I LOVE it! Thanks Katgyrl!
I actually got it some days ago, but I like seeing everything wrapped up, so I had it all set up for a while. But I opened it tonight! Everything is so sweet and personal, a real little Northwest Christmas! So much fun!
My favorite is the ADORABLE tiny felt Christmas tree. Did you really make that yourself?! You have a lot of skill! The baby chihuahuas are very cute too. ^^ And lots of yummy goodies to share, (or not ;) )

Everything wrapped up:

Everything unwrapped! :D

Such an amazing and fun box! I love love love that custom! Waylah you are so talented.


One of the kinder eggs was a normal one (well, semi-normal, they were running a special theme with Disney princesses) and the other egg was doctored! It was very tricky. I had to carefully open it and keep the wrapper intact, then carefully open the chocolate along the seam, (wearing food-handling gloves), then swap the toy, then seal it all back up. I had a few attempts. In the end, to seal it, I melted chocolate from a failed attempt and used that as chocolate 'glue' to seal it up. Phew! Inside I put a resin kitty and pearl's brush.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked the box Waylah! I was so nervous. :P Yes, I did make the tree, I wanted to make you a little miniature Christmas scene with sculpy or something, but I recently gave away pretty much all my sculpy and wasn't sure I had that much faith in my sculpy skills, so I went for sewing instead. Thank you for the compliments, I'm glad you like it! I had a lot of fun trying to make a Northwest Christmas box for you. :) I don't remember if I wrote it in there, but the black pocket on the back of the Christmas tree is for storing the "ornaments" in off-season.

And wow! That is so awesome how you made the custom Kinder egg! Do you make your own resin LPS too? I've always wanted to figure out how to do that, but haven't had the space or time (or money really :P )

And sorry Jeapos that I havne't posted my swap brag pics yet! I got all the links pasted and all that the other day, but the pics were all too big for the forum! (Even though they were taken on my phone and are fine on the MLP forum, go figure :P ) So I will attach a couple and the rest are in my swap album here:
http://s1097.photobucket.com/user/katgy ... t=3&page=1

I love love loved everything! So many fun goodies, I really felt spoiled by Jeapos! The custom she made me is up on display with my Christmas stuff, it is so amazing! I LOVE the Hawaii stuff! The ornament frame is on our tree next to Hawaiian golfing Santa we got while living there. And I am definitely going to do a fashion show with Lagoona and all her new spoils before all my collections get packed away to sell our house. Thank you again Jeapos!

Such a cute idea with the sledding bunnies Jeapos! Great box!

I'm so glad you like everything Twincheckers! I love that you named Nemo "Squishy" - thats awesome! :lol:
Just a heads up that the stocking, I created by "felting", so the pieces are not sewn or glued to the stocking, so if pulled the pieces could come off - just wanted to let you know, I don't think I wrote that in the card :?
