Sweden/San Fransisco Swap Success

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Malin Sweden, Europe
Charlene San Francisco, USA

Japanese stuff from California reaches Sweden. Exclaimation marks ensue.
A great package from Charlene in San Francisco (now I want to go there even more...), containing two kinds of chocolate, two craft books, wasabi peas, a pink lunchbox and a gathering of Hello Kitty things - everything Japanese! This is is my gorgeous (hmmm...) face with a pack of Hello Kitty Cookies and a stick of Pocky chocolate with green tea. I was very happy, and very excited - the Gimme Your Stuff-swap is absolutely great! I really recommend you people trying it. You may not get as nice stuff as this, but I can guarantee it will be something lovely!
You can see more on my blog, http://malinmaskros.blogg.se!
Have a nice day!

San Francisco gets Swedish package. Unfortunately, no mention of ABBA anywhere.
So the Swedish/American swap was a success! Here's what I received from Malin in Sweden. Lots of different things in there. I was so surprised that it all fit in an envelope, and I loved everything. Lots of great Swedish candy, which I shared with my old college friends during a
picnic at our alma mater in the record-breaking California heat this weekend. The chocolate was a success (SO good!). The gummi cars were also a hit, and surprisingly, a couple of my friends really liked the salty licorice (although I can't say I'm a real fan). Next I'll be baking Swedish cookies using the Dalecarlian cookie cutter and the recipes Malin sent me. Malin was a great person to swap with! More here.
