#HEAS @ReadingsByTheC thank you so much! This is one of the most intuitive & well thought out boxes I‘ve received in a swap! Well stalked my friend! Well stalked! Everything is so on point! Green tea w/almond! Drinking it now out of my new mug. Love the bead kit! I can‘t believe you not only got the SnowQueen FTT dvd but it has the best episodes on it!!! I totally loved Thumbalina! I will be starting the Navigator‘s Tale ASAP. Basset bookmark🔖💗

ReadingRover @LibrarianRyan see that dvd!!! It has 4 episodes of FTT on it & one of them is The Nightingale starring Mick Jagger! 👏 👏 👏 @ReadingsByTheC picked the best dvd! It has The Emperor‘s New Clothes w/Alan Arkin, The Nightingale, The Snow Queen (my fav) and Thumbelina w/Carrie Fisher!!! (a close second) 7mo
LibrarianRyan @ReadingRover that‘s the one he is in! Yeah. He‘s not a great actor but it‘s a valiant effort. 7mo
ReadingsByTheC I am so glad you liked everything. It was lots of fun to shop for you. I was so excited someone else remembered FTT! Also, typing "Baba Yaga gifts" in a search engine takes you down a really weird rabbit hole! ? 7mo

ReadingRover @ReadingsByTheC Omg I can only imagine where that may have taken you 😂 I love that you know FTT too!!! We had a convo about it on here a while back and I‘ve been thinking of it ever since!!! 7mo
Chrissyreadit That is an amazing swap box! 😍😍😍😍 7mo
ReadingRover @Chrissyreadit Isn‘t it? She did a great job! Hit on everything I love! 7mo
ReadingRover @ReadingsByTheC I meant to also tell you that I absolutely love this edition of Tales from the Brothers Grimm!!! The artwork is amazing!!! 7mo
ReadingsByTheC @ReadingRover Thank you! I'm so happy you didn't have it already. Isn't it cool? I love new and fun Grimm collections. 😀 7mo

This wood bookmark is simply beautiful, @Jess_Franzino 💜💜💜 Looks like parquet! And there could be no more appropriate saying for a #HappilyEverAfterSwap box! (The only downside is I‘m afraid I‘ll lose it!)

Chrissyreadit So absolutely perfect! 7mo
darklydreaming Gorgeous! 😍 7mo
Jess_Franzino So glad you love it! I‘m the same way with bookmarks....I get SO protective of them. One time I had to tear the bed apart because I couldn‘t find one of my favorites. My fiancé was like “it‘s just a bookmark”. I was like ? 7mo
BookishMarginalia @Jess_Franzino Yep, just like a book is not just a book! 7mo

So excited to unwrap these presents, though I‘m sad to tear into the beautiful flower paper! And can I just gush about the mega sparkly PURPLE pouch? It‘s purple and sparkly all over AND pretty roomy too! Love it! The candles are such pretty colors and smell yummy! Thanks so much, @Jess_Franzino 💜💜💜 #HappilyEverAfterSwap @Chrissyreadit

Chrissyreadit So pretty- I cant wait to see the rest 7mo
Jess_Franzino The pouch was one of my favorite items! Took all my strength not to keep it for myself 😂 I‘m so glad you like the candles! They remind me of little flower bouquets and Disney princesses. I actually got the wrapping paper at the same place where I got the pouch. It‘s a local craft supply store that sells the cutest items! 7mo
BookishMarginalia @Jess_Franzino I appreciate your sacrifice — that pouch is AMAZING! 😍😍😍 7mo
Jess_Franzino @BookishMarginalia It‘s a very interesting material! I‘ve never seen glitter on material in that fashion before. LOL... it was meant to belong to you! I have a terrible habit of buying too many cute pouches from that store 😂 7mo
BookishMarginalia @Jess_Franzino I get what you mean! I am the same with totes and pouches. Well, and books! 7mo

Just came home to this delightful surprise! @Jess_Franzino , it arrived! #HappilyEverAfterSwap @Chrissyreadit 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Chrissyreadit So happy!!!!! 7mo
Jess_Franzino YAY! I had to go down to the post office and switch it to FedEx to make sure it finally got a move on, so I‘m SO glad it arrived for you today as they had promised! I‘m having so much fun watching you post the items as you unwrap them 💞 7mo
BookishMarginalia @Jess_Franzino It‘s real-time posting of the unwrapping 💪🏻🤓🥰 7mo

@ReadingRover completely spoiled me with this epic #happilyeverafterswap package! I have no idea how she fit so much in - it was seriously like Mary Poppins' carpet bag. Everything you picked is adorable, Megan, especially the book locket necklace! 😍 Thank you for everything...and you're exactly right: who doesn't love foxes?! :) @Chrissyreadit

Kalalalatja Lovely! 7mo
Chrissyreadit 😍👏💞 7mo
ReadingRover I hope you like the book choices. I went for more original modern tales that I have enjoyed. We seem to have very similar tastes 😊 7mo

A few people have not yet received packages, or communication from partners. Let me know if your package does not come today so I can get tracking info. Email me if you have any questions.

Chrissyreadit @Avanders I love the idea of adding a send by date in your next swap. 7mo
heikemarie I checked the tracking into and my partner should be getting theirs today! 7mo

heikemarie @Wonderwoman89 has been awesome about communicating regarding when mine will be here 💜 (edited) 7mo
Chrissyreadit @heikemarie thank you!!!! 7mo
Jess_Franzino @Chrissyreadit I haven‘t received my package yet, and not sure who is sending mine. But, my mail tends to arrive later in the day for me. As for @BookishMarginalia ‘s package, it is at the mercy of USPS, as mentioned. It apparently “left the carrier facility” TODAY (legit hate USPS), so should arrive Friday 😥 7mo
Avanders Hi you tagged me but I have received my package ... and my recipient received hers... I think I tagged you in a comment of my sender posting that she was sending it. I know, not as helpful 😜 7mo
Avanders Oh and yeah — I had refrained for a while, but it seems people work better w a deadline and this (hopefully!!) will ensure that everyone gets a timely package. ☺️ 7mo
Chrissyreadit Thanks @Avanders it slipped through my addled brain 😔 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Jess_Franzino yes- you‘ve been great about communicating- making sure yours arrives! 7mo
Jess_Franzino @Chrissyreadit Thanks 💖 I still feel soooo bad about mine being delayed, even though I know it‘s out of my hands at this point. Will tag you in a post as soon as I get mine 😃 7mo
Jess_Franzino @Chrissyreadit Update: My package hasn‘t arrived, and I haven‘t the foggiest who my partner is ☹️ It‘s NBD if it‘s going to be late, (as I know all too well that things can go awry), but just haven‘t received any form of communication regarding it. 7mo
Nessavamusic I have not received mine yet, did not arrive today. 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Nessavamusic I just sent email for tracking info. 7mo
Wonderwoman89 Mine should be arriving from Amazon to @heikemarie today according to Amazon 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Jess_Franzino sent you an email.... 7mo
ReadingRover I received mine on Sunday. I thought I told you in the other post 🤔 Anyway something has been up with my Litsy app and I haven‘t been able to get it to work in the last 3 days 😫 I haven‘t been able to post. Today is the first time I‘m able to even see anything. I‘ll post pics of my wonderful box. Thank you @ReadingsByTheC !!! It was an incredible box and I‘m so sorry for not posting sooner. 7mo
Chrissyreadit @ReadingRover you are not the only one! @TimSpalding responded to similar problem and said signing out and signing back in should fix it. 7mo
ReadingsByTheC @ReadingRover Oh yay! I'm so glad you liked it. 7mo

ravenlee @SmartBookaholicsIncBookstore there are signups for various swaps going on pretty often, hosted by a variety of Littens. Follow @LitsyHappenings and @LitsySwaps to see reposts of swap signups, then just go to the links and follow the directions. Beware, though - they‘re addictive and it‘s easy to commit to too many at once! 7mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @SmartBookaholicsIncBookstore what @ravenlee said! Though sometimes you just stumble across a post in your feed. But @LitsyHappenings and @LitsySwaps are the better way to go. 7mo

To my #heas SENDER: my package arrived last week but I cannot find you in Litsy world to tag you 😕

To my #happilyeverafterswap receiver: your package went in the mail Thursday and should get to you today. Sorry if you‘ve been nervous, I wanted to get it out sooner but between being very sick and polar vortex weather it just didn‘t happen.

BookishMarginalia Glad you‘re feeling better —and warmer! 7mo
Peddler410 @BookishMarginalia Still working on the feeling better part 🙂 7mo

Finishing up with the packing of my #happilyeverafterswap box. I'm a little disappointed with the wrapping paper. I thought it just looked like glitter, but actually has glitter. I hope my match forgives me for the slight glitter shedding that will ensue. Package going out tomorrow priority mail. @Chrissyreadit

Chrissyreadit ❣️❣️❣️🙌❣️❣️❣️ 8mo
ReadingRover 😂 did you pass on the paper because of the glitter?!? 😂 you‘re the kindest swap partner ever! 7mo
ReadingsByTheC @ReadingRover Oh my goodness that paper! 😡 So full of chunky glitter! And thick like wallpaper. I'm ashamed to say it got on my nerves and I gave up. 😔 7mo
ReadingRover @ReadingsByTheC Don‘t be ashamed! I‘m glad you did! My cat would still be wearing it all over him if you didn‘t and probably so would I 😂 7mo

Coming a little late to the party! For #HappilyEverAfterSwap — here are some retellings that are on my wishlist and look interesting!
👑I like the classics, but also Alice in Wonderland and Oz everything
👑I love the Dorothy Must Die series
👑 🤷🏽‍♀️ you pick! 😁

All those things sound fun (puzzles, coloring, knitting, etc), I do wish I had more time for those whimsies these days... ☺️

rubyslippersreads Have you heard about this? 8mo
Chrissyreadit Nice! @rubyslippersreads that book sounds like fun! 8mo

I have decided to give people more time to prep- and will contact the international people privately regarding if someone joined from their country- or if they are willing to have partner on same continent. Looking forward to creating matches!

This book was less about fairy tales and more about how Disney has spread through the world. Now and then who doesn't like a little bit of Disney. I am more partial to the live action films from the 60's, 70's early 80's and when Disney went DARK.😱😱😱👹👹👹
