California/Sweden Is Go For Launch

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Catherine California, USA
Malin Sweden, Europe

Sweden to California Complete
Receiving the package from Malin was like experiencing Christmas in August. The bright yellow padded envelope accented with hello kitty stickers smelled of coffee and it was bulging with the corners of objects I would soon uncover.
When I tore apart the lip of the envelope to free the contents inside from there on it seemed like a bottomless package of Swedish goodies! There were spices and sweets, a set of cookie cutters and a cookbook, and several packets of powdered mixes for dessert and side dishes. She was even thoughtful enough to include a hand-written and sticker decorated "how-to" note describing each content, when and how she's accustomed to preparing it in Sweden. Too cute. I felt like I was just given a rainbow palette and I didn't know where to begin!
There it is. The Swedish loot in all it's glory just waiting for me to put it to good use. Thank you Malin for the wonderful package! I look forward to the day my home smells of Swedish cooking.

California to Sweden Complete
This is the wonderful bag that Catherine in LA promised to some lucky swapper. Which turned out to be me! She filled it with nice chocolates from Trader Joe's (the packages were even better than the chocolates! I love pretty packages!) and some very sneeky gum. I loved the package, thanks a lot Catherine! I look forward to tha next time, I'm already thinking about how to fill my next package...
