🚀COLDPLAY PREMIERE THEIR NEW SINGLE 'HIGHER POWER' FROM SPACE✨

Secret Santa 2017 [insert festive bells here]


Recommended Posts

Wow, this week seems to be the week of the parcels!

Yesterday, my lovely surprise arrived!

Thank you so much @Moniru for being an extra elf and giving me the opportunity to participate, although I missed the deadline!

 

So everything arrived in this beautiful envelope:

Take a look at all the wonderful things she sent me:

[ATTACH=full]7628[/ATTACH]

How cute is this tiny pullover? What you see are just the ghosts of the chocolate because they seemed to have disappeared (yummi!)

That's just so much. She even remembered my weird obsession with Frida Kahlo :D

 

The green square is a little book which she hand-crafted with Christmas-Coldplay-mashups!

 

Since I don't want to spam this thread with pictures, I posted some pics of the book in the spoiler.

I can recommend to take a look at @Moniru 's mad crafting skills!

[spoiler=Booklet][ATTACH]7629[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]7630[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]7631[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]7632[/ATTACH] Inside the book, she hid even more presents :eek: [ATTACH]7634[/ATTACH]

 

Thank you very much! I

The book is awesome!! :heart_eyes:

I am so glad it all arrived in one piece and in time - I have never sent anything to India before! It was really fast! Glad you like it. I am not at home right now but in Moscow, and there is no snow here which is funny as Germany is snowed in :)

Deutsche Post is doing an amazing job. The parcel was wrapped in two layers of plastic bags because of the snow.

Please keep on doing mashups! Still giggling about the fact that you wrote "Better than *Noel* Gallagher" next to Jonnys picture [emoji122]

No, but I did knit the little sweater ;-)

How is it even possible? (How tiny are your hands?) It's so cute an will definitely get a special place on my Coldplay-wall.

I'm thrilled as well. Lovely to hear from you. It's nice to know that the bookmark and keychain got a new home in which they are loved. Last year, I made the same keychain for me as a prototype and it sometimes reminds me of you.

Stepsi, I love my Secret Santa package!!! I hung the confetti and will hang the adorable German wooden Santa and Train on my little tree I the background, (alongside Lena’s YeahWeDoYeahWeDo’s ornaments from last year!). I am so excited to now have a red Love button! Can’t wait to start in on the lovely chocolates! All I need now is for someone to translate the beautiful card!

 

“Froliche Weihnachten! Und ein gerunds, glucklicher neuer Jahr!

 

I’m pretty sure the first line isn’t Frolick in Wonderland, my husband’s (who is half German!) literal interpretation! But I like it!! Thank you Stepsi!!!

It's funny how our decorations match.

 

The card says: Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy new year

On another note, I am very happy to say that I have received my package already as well. Same as last year, I was kind of worried when the doorbell rang, as I thought, who can that be, haven’t ordered anything and oh my god I hope it is not my son who has forgot that he has afternoon classes again … haha. Then it was a friendly postman handing me a package from sunny Italy. I thought this can only my secret santa!!! No way I was gonna wait to open it although it seems like a nice idea as well. I got a beautiful self-designed Coldplay Calendar, Chocolate and some lovely decorations. I really like the little dolly and the chocolate looks delicious. I was even happier when I found out that one of the chocolates is a dark one, since I do not tolerate cows milk that well. But I will try both anyway later on. So dear @FortyTwo42 thank you so much for taking extra care in putting together my little secret santa surprise.

 

Unbelievable that mine will be the first picture this year. Here it comes:[ATTACH=full]7619[/ATTACH]

Oh what an honor! My little package is the first picture this year! I'm so happy you like the calendar, it will walk you through 2018 :D

 

Merry Christmas to you all!

Ahhhh! I'm so glad it arrived in time and in one piece :blush: and I'm happy you like it! And what a luck I've chosen the red love button :yum

The wooden figures are handcrafted and from our local Christmas market. It's quite typical.

 

The translation of the card you already have by @YeahWeDo_YeahWeDo :grinning: Thought it would be nice to send a German card but forgot to translate it :eyes:

So excited because my Secret Santa package arrived today from Isabel in Mexico! She sent a lovely card, a beautiful ornament which is going on my tree right now, a sweet little bear (which my cat has tried to take away from me), and yummy candy!

 

Muchas gracias, Isabel! Feliz Navidad, and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Coldplayers!
