Send Something Good Project

It was great fun to be apart of this project. Many of us around the globe got together to get to know each other without knowing who was stalking your page. We then put packages together that we thought one another would like. It was a lot of fun.

I received Christy from the blog Christopher Scott. She is a new blogger, so there was not a lot of stalking to do, I just had a list to go by.  She loves all things paper. So I sent her lots of stationary, a unique wooden trinket box and some chocolate. You can never go wrong with chocolate, right? She had also mentioned on her blog that I use real stamps when sending the package.  Normally I ship from my house, but for this I made an exception. Once I made it down there, and waited 35 minutes in line, the postal worker told me they could not use real postage.  I practically had to beg and plead and especially after all that waiting too. He finally gave in, so I hope you enjoyed your stamps Christy :)

I didn't take photos before packaging it up, but you can hop over to Christy's page to see her photos.
Here is what I sent:





I eagerly checked my mailbox every day to see what I would receive.  Sometimes I wondered who was on my blog trying to figure me out.   I was so happy when I made it to my mailbox one day, to see this ..

Royal Mail - just for me?  I felt important for a whole minute.







The lovely Elise from Foof and Faff was my stalker. She is from Scotland which explains the Royal Mail.  She wrapped in this darling wrap, which made me smile.






Elise included lots of sugar which was nicely appreciated, and included a great magnet thermometer which is both in Fahrenheit  and Celsius.  This is really great, cause  I wonder sometimes.  Sanitizer cause maybe she read somewhere in my blog that I never leave home without it.  And a darling kitchen book.


Thank you so much Elise!





I cant wait for the next round, cause I would love to take part again.
Stay tuned for later in the week where I share about the fun mug swap I did.
I just love these things.

  1. wow, that postal worker was giving you bullcrap. lol. i used to not ask for real postage on large or international packages because i imagined them having to paste 25 little stamps on there. but wanna know a secret? in those little drawers they have 1, 2, 5, and 10 dollar stamps! easy peasy. glad you stood your ground but sad that you don't have a post office that takes less than 25 mins in line.
