Swap Details:
Swapper1: Ankaisa Finland, Europe
Swapper2: Elleoz South Carolina, USA

South Carolina to FinlandWell, it took a lot longer than expected, but the package actually did arrive. I was already so sure that it had been lost in the mail. The package did look a bit like it had been lying around somewhere collecting dust, but I have no idea where that was.

This is what I got from Carrie! DS loved the toy, and those almonds really are good. Thanks for swapping with me.

Finland to AlabamaI received first swap in the mail last week. What wonderful stuff from ankaisa straight from Finland. It was filled with all kinds of Moomin stuff, postcards, stationary, candy, chocolate, hand knitted bath stuff, and a great mix CD. I have to say that the chocolate didn't last long. Thanks so much ankaisa! I can't wait to do it again.

I was pretty much a screeching teenage girl upon opening my second Swedish package from Malin. After the initial high-speed ramble induced excitement I was finally able to gather my thoughts and settle emotions to coherently express thanks in this blog post for the wonderful gifts from Sweden... Many thanks Malin for the colorful and thoughtful gifts!(more here)

Italy/Spain swap completed

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Kiarolla Italy, Europe
Swapper2: Itziar Spain, Europe

Spain to Italy
This I received from Itziar was my first swap and it was incredible! I like so much everything she sent to me, especially the Hello Kitty’s
lipgloss and gel, the little mirror and the accessories with polka dots! It was so funny and the chocolate was (yes…I still ate it!!) good! I like swapping with you, Itziar!
Italy to Spain
This has been my first swap with Italy and Kiarolla was such a fun toswap with!! I received a bunch of coloured goodies my teddy bear Tita hurried to make hers... There you have her: clips on one ear, an earring on the other (you can see the second earring just on top of the fun slip Tita didn't wear cause she's such a discrete bear). The little tube under her left arm is a tinietiny lipgloss and what you see in her other hand is a beautiful icecream earring Kiarolla made for me :o). What else? Shampoo ('love the stuff), pencil and rubber to match and the nicest letter ever. Thank you so much Kiarolla! I really apreciate the effort you put in the swap.
