I had sent out my exchange yesterday :flower:
Received my package from Mommytotwo yesterday. I don't remember everything because I'm doing this at work - computer at home not working right. Got Mickey perfume, some yummy snacks, scrapbooking stickers, lotions, a Hawaii calender and a bar of plumeria soap. Sorry if I left anything out. Now, on to the cool part - DD15 was born in Hawaii and right outside my bedroom window was a plumeria tree - I loved it, and the soap brought that smell right back to 15 years ago - DD did snag the calender though. She really wants to go back and see where she was born. Anyway - Thank You so much for bringing back some sweet memories. Guess I had better get to shopping. :Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc Thanks

I did! I've been so busy today or I would have posted sooner. We just got back last night from a driving trip to Disneyland, about 19 hours. I've been unpacking and doing laundry all day. I did make it to the post office today though and had a wonderful treat!

Okay, here is what my wonderful package contained: A spring 7", cross-sticheed, log pillow (just darling!), a bread warmer trivet (I can't wait to use this),Title Die Cuts for my scrapbooking, a wire Easter Egg (it brings back memories of my grandmother), a tri-fold organizer (I am so thankful to have this), a "My Vacations" Journal (and it's just the perfect size, a bunny and Easter egg cookie cutters, Thumbtacks with flowers and bumble bees (they are too cute!),a Srping Snowman that is just perfect, a really pretty Spring pitcher and little Easter erasers which have been stolen by my children.

I can believe all the wonderful things you bout Holly! I can't wait for my next trip, so that I can use that journal! I can tell you put a great deal of thought into it and I like that!

A little off topic, I notice you are from MO, I used to live there. KC area for 23 years.

Thanks again!

Lori, Glad you received everything okay. I really enjoy these exchanges. 19 hrs to DL is about the same for us to WDW, I know how you feel. The laundry keeps multiplying. Anyway, I live 2 hours south of KC, have to go there often, only Disney Store in a 10 hour radius. Hope you enjoy your goodies. Holly

Hey! :flower: that would be ME - I think I'm the only one in SD - That'll make my day. I have Saturday detention duty that day and I'll be kind of worn out emotionally, I'll need a pick me up, I'm so excited. AND if it doesn't get here until Monday, that's ok too.

Thanks so much for my package. I got so many cool things! :cool1:

I'll start with the chocolate peanut butter eggs (I finished with them, too. Ate them while I was looking at everything else. I'm such a chocoholic :crazy:

Then I got a rain scented candle w/dish; jellybeans, marshmellow peeps (saving them for later - I do have to sleep tonight ;) acute yellow hand towel with Easter eggs on it, a good luck plant that comes in its own wicker basket and a mini greenhouse with flower seeds!

I was so excited when I pulled into the driveway and saw my package. It made my day! :)


Note to my pal: Package is going out tomorrow. Just got it boxed up tonight.

I got my package - I was so excited to come home today and see a package sitting in the snow on my doorstep.(Don't worry, everything was just fine.) My pal was Patsal and she put together a wonderful package for me and my little girl. First of all she wrote me a very nice little letter. And we got...
Mixed Nuts - yummy!
jelly beans
Easter gel stickies
There was a special little package made up just for my DD
A cute little Easter basket with chocolates
Spree Candy - yummy, I'm taking them in to school tomorrow (I might even be nice and share with the Sat. detention kids, IF they're good.)
AND I got this wonderful Easter Egg wreath, it is beautiful.

Thank you, thank you Sally!! :hug:

Renee,
So glad you enjoyed it. Hope detention goes speedy quick and the kids are well behaved enough to earn a treat! It was fun to put the treats together for you and my DD really enjoyed making the treat for your DD.

:hug: Sally :wave:

Thank you Terri! My package arrived today and I really can't wait until the temps rise because I have a good amount of planting to do! I received many wonderful things for the garden: a new stake, several packs of seeds (I'll use these in the window boxes), some new bulbs, a beautiful wind chime and new gardening gloves. In addition there was a wonderful strawberry candle, strawberry citronella bug repelling incense--can't wait to try these, very colorful Easter eggs and peanut butter eggs-YUMMY! A really cute dish towel, coupon carrier and journal--which I can take with me on vacation in July.
Thanks so much, it is such a lovely treat! :flower: :sunny: :flower:

I was under the impressin that it was sent the day after Easter--I will check and see what I can tell you ! Sorry :confused3

mommytotwo
04-11-2005, 02:56 PM
If the box was resent the day after Easter via priority mail, it should have been here. Depending on where it is coming from, from the west coast, it would only take 3-4 days, and from the east coast it would only take 4-6 days.

I'm glad you received it, mommytotwo :) I just got home today, and the first thing I saw was a message from patsal saying you hadn't gotten it yet, and I got worried! I've been away for a couple of weeks for classes for work, and I left the mailing to my boyfriend. I was about to kill him until I checked in here to see you had gotten it :)
