Those of you who read my last post, might know that I received a mysterious package last week that I had to wait before tell you what it is.
Well, today's the day, and I'm incredibly excited to tell you about it!
A quick recap: the first week of April, I signed up for the Send Something Good project, promoted by three fellow bloggers: Gentri Lee, kaitlyn and Kristy. Everyone got assigned a secret blogger to whom send a special package.
The blogger I sent the package to, was Tamika from Austria; my secret blogger, instead, was Michelle from Texas!
Today is finally the link-up/reveal day, and I can show you the awesome box I received!
Michelle was so lovely to also use the official merchandise of the project!
Everything was tied with twine, and had a little numbered note with a description of the object. How cool is that?!
Object #1 was a letter, which I'm not posting for obvious reasons. Michelle has the coolest handwriting though! You'll be able to see it in the next pictures.
Object #2: two Texan vintage pins! I love vintage items, even more when they're pins, since I collect them. The armadillo one is just too nice!
Object #3: the book Into The Wild. I could rant about how much I love this particular present for a day or two, but I won't. Just know that I wanted to read this book since forever, and moreover this one has the prettiest cover I've ever seen!
Object #4: this cute journal; It has wonderful graphic outside and inside, and also a lot of inspirational quotes scattered through its pages.
Object #5: was missing! There was a note from the Italian customs saying that they had to remove a bottle of BBQ sauce from the package because you are not allowed to introduce this kind of thing in the country.. so I'm assuming that object #5 was the BBQ sauce. I'm waiting for Michelle to confirm that – as it's not unusual (unfortunately) that the people at the customs like to subtract things from packages.. but anyway I hope it's just that!
On a side note, I would have loved some real BBQ sauce though. Stupid laws.
Object #6: a pack of notecards. I was so clever to cover the design with her note, but they're really nice, believe me; and also have matching envies with balloons. I'll surely use them to spread the love to my penpals!
Object #7: '90 postcard. Last but not least, Michelle also sent me this postcard of the Astrodome, which is a big stadium in Houston. It will make a very lovely addiction to my postcard collection, yay!
I loved this project - and my secret blogger! - so much that I've made (actually I still am..) an entry in my SMASHbook about it!
Once again, thank you SO much, Michelle! Everything you've sent me is perfect and I really hope I'll get the chance to know you better :)
(by the way, if you'll read this, I hope you received my email!)
Also, thanks to Gentri Lee, kaitlyn and Kristy for this wonderful idea! I'm already looking forward for another round!
Unfortunately, all the pictures I took of the package that I sent to Tamika, got lost because I had problems with my external hard disk. However, I know she received it, and liked it! If she'll post pictures on her blog I'll borrow them and post them here too!
