#BookMarkExchange I‘m overwhelmed with the lovely gifts and bookmarks from @Simona USPS finally delivered and it was definitely worth the wait! A beautiful sequined pillow cover held everything (genius idea) I ❤️the variety of bookmarks and tea, chocolate, book, and ornaments! Using playing cards for bookmarks is something we have common. Thank you so much!

LeahBergen Gorgeous! 2y
Simona Finally! It was the most stressful exchange so far. I checked furiously every day, if the package will move somewhere ... but at the end - everything is fine. Enjoy in using the bookmarks and yey for playing cards 😁 2y

Hands down this is my most favorite journal calendar ever! It‘s so unique and cool! Lavender is one of my favorite scents. I actually rub lavender on the babies‘feet every night. @Avanders you are beyond amazing. Thank you!
As a makeup artist and stylist I worked 30 hours out of the past 48 hours. I‘m dead on my feet littens!

WarpedSweetness Lavender is wonderful. I used it for all three of my kids to help them wind down. Well, not the baby as he doesn't like it. Lol But girls' still like lavender. 2y
Avanders I'm so glad you like it!! And lavender on their baby's feet, ey? Will have to try that..... ☺️ Merry Christmas! 🎄🎄 2y

kyraleseberg @Tamra I did a photo of the scene (used a toothpick to make the flour design like a snow angel) and then a separate photo of Haven under the same directional light. In Photoshop I "cut out" Haven and added her to the scenery image and added a separate layer to create the shadow around her to make the lighting consistent. 2y
Tamra @kyraleseberg so fun and way more creative than I! 2y

Thank you so much @wonga for this windfall of bookmarks! I‘m in love 😍 with my personalized #litsy bookmark and the Colorado one too! I plan to color and laminate the Cheshire Cat...he speaks to me. The Christmas card is beautiful ( I‘m a sucker for a sparkly card) and your handwriting is gorgeous 😍! Thanks again for being my match for the #BookMarkExchange.

So I finally got my #bookmarkswap into the mail yesterday. I‘m a little worried about my international package. When I checked into how long shipping would take, I was told approximately 2 weeks. When I sent it, they said “no estimate” on delivery AND I can only track it until it reaches U.S. Customs. 😳😳😳. On a positive note, I ended up with enough bookmarks to send to my #LitsyPenPals I hope everything makes it to the destinations! 🤞🏻

Simona Don‘t worry 👍. My package was dispatched on Tuesday😘 2y
wonga thanks! 💕🔜 2y

I know it isn't a #bookchristmastree - but this is all my 'creative' brain could come up with for the challenge. Holiday cards from my #litsygoespostalog fam (and a couple other littens). My holiday has been such a lovely one because of litsy and it's people. Many thanks and happy holidays to all! (about three seconds after the photo was shot Tilney decided to be playful and scattered the cards 😸) #catsoflitsy #seasonsreadings2016

This book is so enjoyable and interactive! The postman delivers Christmas letters from the Big Bad Wolf to Little Red Riding Hood, to and from the Gingerbread Man and Santa Claus and the 3 Little Pigs and more. You can actually open and read each "letter" and there is even a book within the book! I loved it as a kid, and my girls love it now.

The #jolly postman book spent a number of years in my mother in law's 2nd grade classroom before she passed it on to my kids. Surprisingly all the pieces are still in tact! And there is just a bit of #holly on the cover of The Twelve Blessings of Christmas 🎄
