Red Letter Day at the Mailbox!

What's this? A package with a customs label on it? I have a hunch I know who the sender is. I recently participated in a swap at the homeschooling site I frequent. This was a particularly fun swap. We were to send a bookmark and a surprise to the person who's name we drew.
I love surprises!
Since most everyone had already received their packages, including the person who's name I drew, I was beginning to suspect my gift was traveling across the pond, hence a lengthier journey for it than most.

Sure enough, I was right. The bag of goodies is from Liz, my longtime online aquaintance from the Swap. Liz once called and left a message on my answering machine. She has the most delightful sing-song veddy British accent. She's bubbly and her voice made me think of sunshine. She's a sweetheart through and through, and I'm not just saying that because she sent me a package full of neat surprises!
Liz, if you're reading this, I can't wait to shower and try out the microfiber mitt & cloth! I've hidden away the colorful stick-it notes so Hubby doesn't use them all. I LOVE the scripture bookmark and pen!!! I'll carry it with me to take sermon notes on Sundays, and will think of you each time I pull it out of my purse.
The soft and squishy computer screen cleaning doll is just adorable. I've never seen those before. Trust me, he's going to earn his keep around here. Last, but not least, your poem disguised as a packing slip did indeed bring tears to my eyes (hence the inclusion of tissues) from laughter! Thanks, Liz, you are a doll!

Why don't I know about this swapping and how to get free, fun things via snail mail?

I'll tell you EVERYTHING you want to know about American Idol, if you tell me how to join a group of homeschool families that do this. . . .

You know it's a good deal : )
