I was extremely excited to receive this parcel in from my PO box! It looks like Chatot was pretty excited too, especially given this drawing on the box — check under the cut to see what's inside! (WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY!)
Some more of my favourite birdies! They're having a little chat :3
Opening it up... wow! Look at all these beautifully wrapped gifts!
First things first was this incredible card! It turns out my gifter is none other than nerucake , thank you very very much indeed! This artwork featuring my favourites being little mailbirds is so goshdang adorable! They all look so happy, and the cloud textures are simply stunning. Then, inside was another happy little Chatot! Look how puffy and cute he is. I knew I was in for a treat as soon as I saw this beautiful art :)
Inside was also a little mini-envelope with a bunch of stickers inside! (I accidentally covered Entei's face in this picture, oops.)
Okay, onto the pretty parcels.. what could be in the first one?
First up is this acrylic charm! This is an older charm from the Pokémon Center that I never grabbed. The Chatot in it looks like he's having a blast. It's still sealed and everything, I can't wait to hang it from my board!
Next is this gorgeous Berry Forest pass case!! I love the floral designs of this promotion, you can see the Chatot in the top right. The little button eyes are so cute.
Next up is a biggun... Timtams!! I've had various friends from Aus but I've never had the opportunity to try Timtams and I was so intrigued I tried one right away. They're a bit like a biscuit we have here called Penguins, but (don't tell anyone else in the UK I said this) much tastier.
Ooh, it looks like Chatot knows what's in this bubblewrap..
Two beautiful trading cards from my wishlist! On the left is the Rockruff character art from a recent set. I could not believe how cute this art was when it came out! And then on the right is a promo Eevee card. Why did I have this one on my wishlist? Well, if you take a look up where Chatot's pointing...
There's a little Chatot up there! I'm so pleased to have both these cards in my collection! There is something just so pretty about the silvery borders of Japanese cards, they're going to look fabulous in my binder.
This parcel looks fancy! It's all wrapped up, and the washi tape...
Is lots of tiny unicorns! So cute! So, what's inside?
Oh! My! GOODNESS!
These are some little handmade clay pins of all my bigger collections. I'm going to admit something: when I opened these up, I absolutely started to tear up. The sheer amount of time and care that must have gone into them, all the fun poses, and the incredibly steady-handed painting... Straight away, these are some of my favourite customs that I own. Thank you so much, Nerucake!
Some more sweets! Looks like Chatot got to them before I did. I mentioned that I like caramels and toffees, and these are such a treat. I have to admit I laughed out loud when I saw the koalas; a very on-brand sweet!
Saving the largest parcel for last, and here it is! It's this really beautiful Forest Life tshirt from the Pokémon Center! Nerucake did actually guess my size accurately, but this will stay a collection piece. Let's play spot the Chatot on this one:
There he is! Look at that funny little face. Adorable!
Here is everything altogether! Thank you so much again Nerucake for making my first SSS just wonderful. It was such a delight and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it! You've given me plenty of ideas to incorporate into my own gifting MO for next year too!
Until next time!
