Hello Littens! We need your help. The #mybloodyvalentineswap was a great success overall, but we have one Litten who didn't receive a package and is very disappointed. Is there anyone who would be willing to send a replacement package? We would be eternally grateful to anyone who could help! 🤗

LazyLimaLife I‘d be happy to help! 2y

Many, many thanks—best Bloody Valentine‘s Day EVER!! And thanks to @JenlovesJT47 and @TricksyTails for arranging the swap!

DiruVamp Yay!!! So glad you liked everything I had a blast picking out everything for you! I thought Jack was too adorable! Enjoy!! 👏🏻🤓🖤🎉 2y

This was a complete box since even I received a DVD The. Conjuring😱Exited to see it but also afraid, I'm a chicken but I will try and bi will be brave.There are two Stephen King books👏Gwendy's Button Box which I wanted to read, well recommended and I like very much the cover 👌🏼The Dark Tower I already read it but I like this cover. There are people that do not like books with movie cover, I say that it depends and I love this one. ((Part 1)

Gissy Also I received a book full of history (because is a used book☺️)AStranger is Watching which Jen said is a classic so excited to read it👍I don't know anything about Venom but love that cover!😍I received beautiful mini notebooks which I use a lot personal items👌🏼& coffee and candies & a cup Wow! 🎉🎊Thank you @JenlovesJT47 this was an amazing box😍I love everything very thoughtful❤️😘 @TricksyTails thank you for this swap #MyBloodyValentine 👏 2y
Gissy Whoops some errors but written with love 🤷🏻‍♀️😌 2y
JenlovesJT47 I hope you like everything! I tried to pick a movie that wasn't too scary, The Conjuring movies are very good. Just watch with all of the lights on! 😱Hope you had a great Valentine's Day! ❤️🤗 (edited) 2y

Gissy @JenlovesJT47 Yes, I was talking in my work about the gifts and the movie and everyone recommended it. So I will see it. It is a mix feeling in a good way I want to see it, I'm scare but I want to see it🤷🏻‍♀️I really like everything.

JenlovesJT47 I'm sorry you've already read the Gunslinger, feel free to regift if you want! Hope you enjoy the others. Venom is a murder mystery, not too gory I don't think. ☺️ 2y
Gissy @JenlovesJT47 I love this Gunslinger cover, so will keep it, I will continue the series I know....I'm a book hoarder🙋🏻😔...I confess that I have the same book twice just because I love the cover of both like in this case, something strange is happening to me🤷🏻‍♀️....😂So the book will be save with me❤️ 2y
JenlovesJT47 Awesome, I feel the same way, especially if it's a book I really like! I haven't read it yet, so many Stephen King books so little time! 😂 2y

Well it‘s certainly been a week to remember. A surprise trip to Iceland for my birthday later this month! So I‘ve not been around to open my valentines package until tonight. This is a great package @Oryx I love the books 📚 and such a cool selection of gifts too! The bookmarks, socks and sweets too 😍
Love the card! Haha @TricksyTails @JenlovesJT47 #mbvs

TricksyTails Just sent you an email. If you could please check your inbox. Thank you! 😊🙏 2y
scripturient This looks great! And such a small world as Oryx was my match to send to. :) BTW, thanks so much for the tracking number. It‘s weird but the package seems to have been stuck since 10/2. Damn postal service! I‘m keeping you posted. :) 2y
Ottergirl @scripturient i feel so bad that you haven‘t received yours yet. Have you contacted the postal@service your end to see if they can help? 🤔😔 2y
scripturient @Ottergirl Don‘t feel bad, please! It‘s definitely not your fault! Big hug! DHL (which is our local carrier) can‘t really help. I was at the post office yesterday to send something else and asked. They said that only the sender can enquire about packages and only after like 20 working days. 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️ I‘ll let you know as soon as it gets here. If it shouldn‘t, we can then still put in a search request in two weeks or so. 😘 2y

At 12:02 I start to open my both boxes. This is the content of my #MyBloodyValentineSwap I wish I could record my face when I opened the box. The wrap paper so beautifully bloody😍But I will post a picture of the content later to see if I have better light (if I come early today). I went to bed almost at 1:00 am and I have to work at 7:30😱but it was worthy!❤️Thank you @JenlovesJT47 for this amazing box @TricksyTails and for this swap

JenlovesJT47 I hope you like everything! Happy Valentine's Day! 🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤 2y

Marmie7 @JenlovesJT47 @TricksyTails I can't wait to read it! And that's actually an owl journal in the back💝 I feel spoiled-😍 2y
JenlovesJT47 Ooh I didn't even notice that, so pretty! 2y
TricksyTails 😍♥️🦉 Does it have black pages? 2y
Marmie7 @TricksyTails No, just white lined pages. That would be cool though. 2y
TricksyTails It‘s gorgeous! I‘d never want to write in it! 2y
Marmie7 @TricksyTails I know! I'm trying to think what I could possibly put in it to do it justice- lol 2y

@Avanders Part 2 of the #mybloodyvalentineswap - so much awesomeness in one picture! I've heard of Asylum but can't believe you sent me the entire series! Super intrigued by the Blood book and Love Is Red looks really good. I may or may not have squealed when I opened Horrorstor and The Last American Vampire! I loved P&P&Zombies and look forward to reading Abraham Lincoln VH. The Bloody Cupid mug is awesome and very fitting! To be continued 🔽

JenlovesJT47 Love the print from Night of the Living Dead and the coffee pen! And the candy!! So. Much. Candy! 😍🍬🍫🍭you have spoiled me rotten lady! I can't wait to dive into these books. Thank you so much for everything! Happy Valentine's Day! 😘🖤🤗❤️ 2y
JenlovesJT47 And to my lovely cohost @TricksyTails - thank you for all of your hard work!! Hugs 🖤🤗❤️ 2y

Avanders There are actually 2 more little things that were supposed to go in there, but I forgot about them when I was packing it all up .. once I remembered, I figured I can just send them w your pen pal stuff 😁😁 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders I love everything! And I can't believe there is actually more, you definitely spoiled me already. Happy Valentine's Day!! 😘🖤🤗❤️ 2y

JenlovesJT47 @scripturient I will check and get back to you asap. Fingers crossed it comes today! 🤞🏻❤️ 2y
scripturient @JenlovesJT47 Thanks so much. I‘m not really worried but today‘s post is already through and it would help to know when it will get here approximately so somebody will be home to sign for it. :) 2y
JenlovesJT47 @scripturient oh ok, will try to get a tracking number for you! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @scripturient just heard from your match, it is late where she is and the tracking number is in her car so she will get it in the morning. She thinks it is supposed to be delivered on Friday. 🙃 2y

Going to have to do this in more than one post, it wouldn't fit in one picture! @Avanders you have truly spoiled me!!! I love all of the Stephen King things, and this Bunnicula tote bag is so awesome! The fuzzy change purse that had all of the SK goodies inside is so soft! Love the chocolate, and HOW did you know to get me olives? That is my number one pregnancy craving! 😅 Did I tell you that or do you just have ESP? TBC... #mybloodyvalentineswap

CouronneDhiver Oh. My. Goodness! 😍 Great gifts 2y
TricksyTails 👏😍🖤♥️🖤♥️🖤♥️ 2y
Godmotherx5 BUNNICULA!! 💜 2y

Avanders Lol you actually did put olives on something somewhere... 😁😁🖤❣️🖤❣️ 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders lol ok I was thinking for a minute there that you must be psychic! 😅 Thank you again, so extremely thoughtful. 🤗😘 2y
Avanders Oh and do you recognize the coin?? (Did you have one already?) 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders I don't have one already, it is really cool! Love all of the SK stuff 🤗 2y
Avanders @JenlovesJT47 nice!! It's from (inspired by?) Gwendy's button box! 2y
Avanders If you get desperate, looks like you could sell it for a surprising about of money on eBay. Kind of like in gwendy's.... 😁😁 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders you would think I would have made that connection already since Gwendy is my favorite SK book!! I blame lack of sleep and another pregnancy brain fart 💨🤰🏻🤷🏻‍♀️😅that is so awesome!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders I didn't examine it closely last night, there were so many goodies taking my attention! 😅 2y
Avanders @JenlovesJT47 lol! Well I totally didn't make th connection at first either. So yeah, let's blame the babies 😆😆 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders yes!! 😂😂😂👶🏻🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
Avanders I was really excited about your box ? I was so geeked to find the Overlook Hotel key fob .. I looove the line from Night of the Living Dead "they're coming to get you Barbara" ?? And the coin.. I sent the box before I knew how you felt about Gwendy, and was so happy when I saw that you did! ☺️ 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders it was fate! 🤓I'm glad you liked Gwendy as well, such a good book! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Avanders I love everything you sent! 2y
Avanders Totally fate ☺️☺️ so happy. 💋🖤❣️ 2y
MiyakoBunny 😱😱😱😱😱A bunnicula tote!!!!! 2y

It‘s past my bedtime, but Sandy and I couldn‘t wait until morning to open my #MyBloodyValentineSwap box!! @Pogue thank you so much for everything! I love it all so much and am very touched by the time and care you spent on this! So many books from my wishlist and I can‘t wait to read the two that you picked out! I LOVE the Zombie dolls and rat bookmark, though I have had to explain to Sandy that they are not hers! Did you make them?

mklong Huge thanks to @JenlovesJT47 and @TricksyTails for organizing such a fun swap!! 2y

KrystleTheBookSlayer Maybe, usually I stay up super late, but the last few days I've been passing out early. If I don't open at midnight, then I will definitely be opening it first thing in the morning! 2y
Craftylikefox Super excited, I won‘t purposely stay up just because I have to open at work the next day. But if I‘m up at midnight I am totally opening my MBVS!!! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Krystle1 @Craftylikefox I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone gets, I know what I'll be doing all morning! Scrolling scrolling scrolling Litsy.... 2y
AmyG @JenlovesJT47 I think I was the first to send mine out. I can‘t wait to see what‘s inside...I only remember a few things. 😳 (edited) 2y
laundry_piles Me me me me! 🙌 2y
Craftylikefox I will be scrolling as well! I always love seeing what everyone gets. Might end up adding books to my tbr haha 2y
Chrissyreadit 😥hoping tomorrow‘s the day. 2y
KrystleTheBookSlayer Me too! I love seeing what everyone got! I usually end up finding things that I want to buy! 😂 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Chrissyreadit I sent you an email! 🤗 2y
oOArankaOo On the one hand I want to because I want to reward myself for grading a bunch of essays, but I think I'm going to stick it out until I'm home from work tomorrow! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @oOArankaOo you have more self control than I do! But at least it gives you something to look forward to. ☺️ 2y
JenlovesJT47 @AmyG lol I do that sometimes, can't remember everything I sent! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @laundry_piles yay! 🙌🏻 2y
oOArankaOo @JenLovesJT47 Work will be easier if I know I have a reward waiting xD 2y
JenlovesJT47 @oOArankaOo exactly! I hope you enjoy everything! I'd probably do the same but I work at home so I don't know how long I could honestly make myself wait. 😅 2y

PirateJenny I just can't. I get up before 6 for work. I have to wait till tomorrow night and it's killing me. I'm just going to be on Litsy all day, watching everyone else 2y
BookwormAHN 🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Gissy I feel your pain! 😅I've had to stare at my boxes for a month - sitting on the staircase right outside my bedroom door! I'm amazed I had the restraint not to open it early 😳 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Drebae29 @PirateJenny too bad you have to get up so early but you will have something cool to look forward to all day at work! 🤗 2y
