    Natashavonlemke sent me this wonderful assortment! I received it several days ago, but didn’t get a chance to photograph anything till today. She sent me colored pencils and several adult coloring books featuring horses, cats, and dragons! Also some lovely peppermint pine scented soap. Finally, she sent me the first book in Anne McCaffery’s Dragonriders of Pern series! Of all things, I had never read them. I have already finished it and bought the next two. :bigsmile: Thank you so very very much!

    Aw, I’m so glad you liked them! I haven’t started doing the adult coloring yet but I want to so I already had a bunch of those books on my wish list! They look like a lot of fun! I’m really glad you liked the book and got thru it so quickly! It’s always amazing when you find a new series that speaks to you. You filled out your form really way and it made it very easy to shop for you, so thank you! I hope you have a wonderful winter season full of holiday cheer!
    Best,

    Anne McCaffrey’s Pern books were part of what drew me to Windstone – the fledgling dragons were exactly my mental image of a fire lizard!

    I received the following lovely box of gifts a few days ago from dragons4Life! Books, and scents, and treats (some treats were already consumed by the time the below photo was taken), some activity books, a calendar and day planner, some sparkly things… Quite a few things to open! The holiday season this year has unexpectedly become a bit of a mix of feelings and emotions this year, as I lost my Mom to complications from long term medical issues on Friday, Nov. 13th, the day after we brought her home for hospice after over two weeks in the hospital. My Dad and I have been assisting and caring for her for over the past 3 years – medical complications due to a bad hip replacement, some issues with long term prednisone use, and a highly antibiotic resistant bacterial infection. I live and work from home, which has been a godsend, with this year being very hard, with 9 visits to the hospital since January. To add salt to the wound, I had to put my ~17 year old American Cocker Spaniel, Lucky (my fuzzy pal in my Windstone video for the box opening contest last year), down the same afternoon as his health had also failed. A blessing for both, but still a bit hard for those left behind who will miss them. The house is a little quiet right now. So, this was definitely a lovely bright spot. Thank you again and thank you everyone for your patience with any delayed responses for the swap!

    I’m sorry it’s been such a hard time for you – it’s so hard to lose our loved ones, and especially hard at this time. Your package looks adorable and well thought out! I’m sure whoever sent it will be happy to know it arrived at a time when you needed some comfort.

    I’m also very sorry to hear about your loss, and so close to the Holiday Season *HUGZ*

    I’ve sent my two part Holiday Gift Swap to my Swappee, and I hope they like it… πŸ˜€

    FYI – I’ll be out of town over Thanksgiving and not back until after December 6th, so if I receive my Swap Gift before I return, I won’t be able to post that I received it. If you have me as your Swappee, please don’t worry if I don’t mention that I’ve received your gift until after December 6th.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! :love:

    Great gifts everyone!

    Mine will go out end of the week. Got myself run down with a nasty cold. I just need to finish packing things up and drop at the post office when I’m not quite as sick. Means I get being sick out of the way before the holidays, right?
