Six!, Part 9 (Parts 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8)
I found more new friends in my fabulous birthday package from friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine! These little guys have shells like me, but they can magically crawl out of their shells! I can see why: Boy do they have the yummiest shells ever! 🐢🐢😋🙊
My fabulous birthday package from friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine even included new friends for me! Tito sent me a cozy yarn turtle in my favorite colors, with a hint to “hold the tail and pull.” I did just that! Multiple times! 🐢📏😋
After Mom took my new yarn turtle friend away and I GRUMPed at Mom, I found two pretty origami friends in my birthday package. I made friends with them right away! 🦜🐢😋🙊
Friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine included the most wonderful personalized present in my fabulous birthday package: A pouch with photos of me* printed all over it, handmade by @anne-fine herself!! 👛🐢😍😍
Mom and I both got so excited about our new pouch! Mom can’t wait to carry around my cute face everywhere, and I couldn’t wait to nom every bit of our pouch, including all those photos of my own face! 😋🙊 Even the packaging for the pouch was delicious! (Mom had to literally pry the packaging from my mouth because I loved it so much!) 😋🥺
My fabulous birthday package from Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine included the most fabulous card: A beautiful pop-up card (in my favorite color!) of a tortoise riding a bicycle with a cupcake birthday message!! 💌🚲🐢🧁
Mom loves my birthday card so much that she has put it on her desk so she can see it every day! But first, she had to pry my card away from me. I love my card every bit as much as Mom does! 😍😋😋
Friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine sent me the most fabulous birthday present package, decorated with so many pretty colors and filled with so many goodies that we can’t even share them all in one post!! 📬🌈🎁💝
First up: The most adorable washi tape featuring my namesake and Waddle Dee, packaged with the sweetest message! Washi tape is for nomming, right? 😍😋🐢
Cats love boxes, and I love all types of packing materials! I especially loved all the pretty decorations @anne-fine put on my beautiful birthday box. I immediately discovered a special stamp showing Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom. I made sure to give each and every one of them a thank you boop! 😘 Then I discovered the cake sticker—I love cake!! 🎂😍
This cake is so pretty! All in Mango’s favorite color!
Last but not least: @anne-fine‘s tissue paper and packing paper are delicious!! 📦😋 (Hooray for Mom leaving all the packing material out while she put my presents in various places!)
Mom thought putting me in my birthday box would keep me from nomming all the wrapping paper and plastic. Mom, how do you still not understand that all paper is delicious?
Thank you again so much for such a wonderful birthday box, @anne-fine!! We love all my presents and can’t wait to start using my special stamp everywhere! We are so happy to be your friends! Thank you!! ❤️❤️❤️🐢🐢🐢🐦
Five!, Part 11 (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10)
The biggest surprise in my amazing birthday box from @anne-fine came in its own (delicious) package: A personalized stamp showing me with Mom! @anne-fine had our stamp specially carved by a female artisan in Japan! The stamp includes my name, and stamp me is even wearing a dapper hat! Plus, stamp Mom has lots of her favorite crafting medium: yarn! We love our new stamp so much!!
@anne-fine included in my birthday box two samples of my stamp and sent us an excellent demo video showing how to superimpose different colors on top of the ink. To top it off, @anne-fine sent us an ink pad and special aqueous markers to paint our personalized stamp—including a radicchio-colored marker!
All of our lovely stamp materials were wrapped in a 100% cotton bag that I sniffed and booped all over!
Mom, this pin turtle has a crown. Why don’t I have a crown?!
