California to Sweden
Hej from Sweden,
Sima was my first swap-partner ever, and what a wonderful swap this was. I must be the happiest swapper ever! I received some very very yummy real Big Red chewing gum. It tastes so much better than the fake stuff you can buy here in Sweden. I also got really amazing pink yarn, a merino and silk blend. To make things even more pink, Sima sent a bunch of pink tooth brushes and wonderful roseberry chocolate, which I am saving for some special occasion - the chocolate, not the tooth brushes. I already read my Martha Steward Living magazine from front to back, while listening to Simas "American music" CDs. Oh I love love swapping. It was like early Christmas. Even the pens (which I was very keen on) are wonderful. Did you know there was a pen called "le pen"? No? If you ever do a swap with Sima you should really ask her to send one of those pens. Thank you Sima for everything. You were a great first-ever swap partner. I am looking forward to our next swap.
As you can see Tiger (my cat) thought the content of the swap package was highly interesting and placed himself amongst all the goodies.
Sweden to California
This email is rather delayed. I actually received Nina's wonderful swap before Christmas. It was so beautifully wrapped! She sent me yummy tea, a book of viking tales, a beautiful paper star to hang in my window, felt ornaments, gorgeous glass beads, and music. Including a CD of her husband's band! I absolutely loved everything she sent. We took our time setting up the swap and agreeing on some things, and it was a great experience. The crowning glory of the package though, was the little mouse cat toy. Stella (pictured here) has decided it's her favorite toy. So far we've found it in her food bowl, on the bed, and in random corners of the apartment. Too bad she'll have to wait 'till spring for another swap with Nina :)
