Mail!

November 22, 2005

I was so excited to see a package on the doorstep yesterday…my box of goodies had arrived from Kickpleat in Canada! We had arranged a goodie swap, and I think I got the better end of the deal, though I hope she likes what I sent her!

The first thing I saw was a spooky doll postcard on which she wrote a little note…and two cake pins! I had been coveting one of these for a while, to go on my “I Eat Cake” purse. You can buy them on her Etsy shop, if you love them, too!

She also screenprinted two gorgeous tea towels with cakes. I love the colors! There’s a tiny zine called Make the Most of Toast, and then come the sweets…three types of candy that I’ve never seen before! I’m really excited about the tin of maple syrup and the bottle of miso gravy. I can’t wait to try all this stuff!

She even included a copy of her wedding CD, which has some fabulous tunes on it. What a wonderful package!

And though she may not have realized it, even the wrapping was much-appreciated. Once I snagged the ribbon away from Roux (don’t all kitties love ribbon and string?), I used it in a little project I was working on last night (which I’ll post soon!).

I love swaps! Thank you, Kickpleat!

  3. I saw the photo and I agree with you that you received quite a nice package. Judging from your previous posts, I know you’ve been wanting those pins for a long time now, and I’m glad you’ve been sent those.
