|Mail pile that started The Question|
On a MUCH lighter note! I did get some pretty awesome mail today! Two packages and two letters, a great combo punch after a long day at work!
Package numero ono I have been expecting for a while now. It was for a swap on swap-bot for a reusable swapping bag. To be fair it did come all the way from Switzerland! How cool! I LOVE the bag that Annick sent to me =) *UPDATE* I showed this bag to my mom to help her understand swap awesomeness. It may have worked!
|OMG CHOCOLATES? WHAT IS IN THE BOX?!|
|Cute card and building excitement over seeing a pinnapple bag!|
|She explains that the bag shows the three main languages spoken in Switzerland! French , German and English!|
|^_^ I should really upload a pic of the bag from all angles as it is different on each side. So adorable|
|As if she hadn't already brightened my day, she also included some extras in the form of book pages for art projects. Now I can look more cultured by having Japanese, German, or Portugeuse in my art work.|
The first letter I opened was actually from a gentleman in Germany! This was actually not pat of a swap. I won an auction for two postcards on a site called Listia where you can bid with credits as opposed to actual money. I haven't decided if I will be sending these cards or keeping them in my personal collection!
|The first one is of a Swiss bridge the second is London's Big Ben. Which I saw many years ago but am only just now getting a postcard!|
Package 2! A GIANT ENVELOPE OF FRIENDSHIP BOOKS OH MY GOSH. That was pretty much my reaction when I opened this package! I was talking to a friendly person on swap-bot who heard I was new in the land of FBs so she said she would pass along a few. I said a handful would be plenty! I guess 40 is a handful these days! Thanks Pam!
After looking through some of them I have discovered they have come from as far away as Italy and Japan! I also found one that needs to be sent home as I am the last to write in it! There will likely be a separate post about that =)
Letter 2! A pen friend letter! This was actually a part of a swap believe it or not! They have swaps where you send letters to your partner to help you find an awesome pen pal! Thanks Stacey!
