I recently participated in loving Gracie's Just Because You're Lovely Swap, incidentally my first swap ever. Each participant wrote up something about themselves, and their swap mate was to find some gifts that would suit their partner's personality, accordingly.
I was partnered with another mate in the southern hemisphere, Sharni at The Pieces, who loves to make lists + travel, with a special emphasis on exotic food items from afar. It was perfect timing, since we were traveling to Uruguay. I picked up some cuteness along the way, including an artsy magnet and hot sauce with Amazonian fruit. From Chile, I sent her some of those famed alfajores (that are actually from Argentina), a magnetic pad for fridge list making, and one of the prettiest scarves I've ever seen here. I really just want to keep sending these scarves to people, because I love them so much. Maybe one of these days I'll buy one for myself too. But as you can imagine, living here, I already have SO many scarves!
In a sad state of affairs, Australian customs opened the package I wrapped to remove the card inside (which was one of my most favorite cards that I've ever created), because it contained a feather (from a cat toy or something else silly like that). But Sharni says the customs folks were kind enough to photocopy the front back and guts of the card, so that was sweet. Here's the front (nearly lost) photo of said card.
From Australia I received some event postcards, a metrocard, earrings and necklace, some glow in the dark stars that will come in handy some day for our boy's room, and a couple of chocolates--all encased in pretty packaging.
