It said on the Amazon tracking system that they were coming from Hawaii! Which I didn't know. But even though it projected the package to arrive in 11 days, it only took 5. Woohoo! I was so excited to see that little white envelope! XD
I of course had to immediately rip it open and play!
The first design to really jump out at me (and one I have been waiting to get my hands on) is the all over solid star pattern from plate BM20. It's really cute! I'm surprised I haven't seen more pix of girls using it.

I'm very happy with the Bundle Monster plates, though. A couple of them had scratches on them, but not over any of the images. They all seem to stamp well once you get the right polish or pressure or method down. So, yeah. They're a little more finicky than the Konad plates, but the price difference makes it totally worth it. I'd have spent close to $150 on Konad plates instead of the less than $20 for the BM set.
True, you don't get to choose the exact plates you will get, but they are always the same set. So at least you know what you're getting and can see them before hand. I always research my purchases like crazy before buying so I knew what all the images were. Most of the plates have images I will use and a few of the plates I LOVE! So, it's definitely a win for me!
Hope everyone is hanging in there! Xmas is coming fast. . . but make sure you guys KEEP YOUR HEADS! Remember what it's all about and enjoy the time you get to spend with your loved ones. I know I treasure every second I get with mine! (you know who you are!) =0)
