singapore/california complete!

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Alvina Singapore, Asia
Phyllis California, USA

US stuff to Singapore
Guess what? Phyllis' parcel from California has arrived and it is HUGE! My goodness.. I can't even begin to describe how excited I was to open it. It was so wonderful filled with so much good stuff. Oh I love all the boxes, especially the briefcase one with the silver handles.. So divine! Then, there is the black cylindrical vinyl one, so classy! I tell you it would cost a bomb if I want to get such stuff here in Singapore. Also, the lip glosses. Gosh! There are so many of them I can't decide which to use first. They all look so delicious :) Phyllis even made a red sushi pouch for me. Isn't she sweet. I can just simply go on and on raving about how wonderful
her parcel is. Thanks Phyllis! You still top my list as being the most generous swapper.
Alvina (Craft Princess)

Singapore sends stuff to the US
This is my 3rd swap with alvina in singapore. as always, she's chosen wonderful things. she included more of her earrings and her handmade tissue cover and flower brooch. thank you!

Alvina and I are currently planning our 4th swap. Do you think I'd keep swapping with her if she wasn't great at it??
Her packages are completely packed with goodness, including her beautiful handmade items which, obviously, take time to make.
Maybe my photos don't do her packages justice--she's a better photographer than I am!--but I can assure you that nothing in there is yucky!

some people are just plain envy and jealous Alvina.. your parcels look good the way i see it..! don't feel bad about those anonymous twitch. just because they're identified as anonymous doesn't mean they can't get away from it. what goes around comes around.. is this a site for a fight?! nonononono. no hard feelings y'all.
