My Very First Favorite Things Swap

A few months ago, my daughter invited me to join a group of blogging women for a "Favorite Things Swap, Through Kelly, I chose to swap internationally. My new swap friend is Sya, a 16 year old young lady from Malaysia.
I chose several of my favorite things and added a few lovely ribbons for my new friend across the ocean in Malaysia, and sent the package off.
Today my package arrived. It was quite exciting as I had my grand children here and had told my oldest that a package would be arriving probably today from far across the ocean on the other side of the world.
He helped me unwrap the package and we inspected every item,and read the enclosed note and looked closely at the vintage postcards.
If you want to check out Saya's craftiness, she is a follower of my Blog. Just click on her picture.
I received two meters( I think) of Batik fabric, a cute two tone pink/flower tote, darling hair clips for Tegan,an outfit that the ladies wear in Malaysia,Baju Kyrung, made by a friend of her mother's, Vintage postcards,a blue sharpie pen(My favorite color),post it notes,and a tissue cozy that Saya made.A lovely pop up card and a bookmark made like a shrinky dink memorializing the 2009 Favorite Things Swap! Also one of Saya's favorite food. I will try it later and let you know what I think.
It is so nice to reach across the internet and find new friends and connect, it was a lot of fun and I now have a new best friend!!
