Canada/New Mexico swap FINALLY complete!

Swap Details:
Swapper1: JenBen New Mexico, USA
Swapper2: Teresa Canada, North America

Feared lost, Canadian package found in New Mexico
So at the beginning of August, I agreed to do a cultural swap with a very nice person in Canada (I believe the Toronto area). She received her goodies some time ago but the package bound for the southwest kept not arriving. Tee Gee, my swapping buddy, was already gathering a new package of stuff for me, fearing that the package was lost forever. (Isn't she sweet?) Then at the end of the week, a package arrived! Yay! It had wonderful things in it including the cutest material, some dragonfly ribbon, a Canadian patch, some beautiful beads, a jar of jam, a box of tea and some canadian candy! However, the two packages of candy were empty, I swear! I think it was those adorable little kitties on the material that broke into the gummi fruit and smarties (very different from US smarties). I mean, how else can I explain the missing candy? Certainly I did not eat all the candy as soon as the package got here! And I can only assume that the jam arrived intact because those little kittens did not have the dexterity to open the jar.
Anyway, thanks Tee Gee for all the wonderful Canadian treasures! I love them all!

Meanwhile, this New Mexican package has been in Canada for ages...
Jen sent me a wonderful package - as soon as I opened the box I could smell the amazing soaps she sent (Juniper and "Mother Earth"). I also got 4 different printed fabric pieces, some "Honest Tea" and a cd! (not to mention to cans of Green Chilis - I can't wait to try them)! Teresa
