jitteryjane724 This is lovely that you made out well in a swap! I put a lot of effort into a Christmas swap a few years back and all I got in exchange was a pair of plain black shoelaces... 😬 3mo
Chrissyreadit @jitteryjane724 I‘m sorry to hear that! We try to be very on top of things for litsy swaps including tracking how people participate. Sometimes a bad swap happens but usually they can‘t participate again. 3mo

THANK YOU to my #CreepyChristmasSwap match @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 🖤
My package made its second trip out of Canada and got to me in #Seattle today (by way of San Francisco for some strange reason..who comes up with these mail routes?).
It was sad to tear through the cute wrapping paper, but the goodies are fabulous; I‘m especially excited for the tagged book and smelly bath bomb.
Happy New Year to you and thank you Danielle 😘

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego It took the extra long route, but hopefully it was worth the wait. 🎅🏼☠️🖤 1y
TheRiehlDeal Mail routes… tell me about it! 🙄 It seems like these past few years they‘ve been out of whack. Here in NY, sometimes when I order something, the tracking will say it‘s near Syracuse, then later it‘ll be out in Rochester, and then it‘ll come back to Syracuse. Like that‘s a lot of wasted gas for the delivery trucks. 1y
LeahBergen What a great parcel! 1y

Really enjoyed this one. I feel like this will make a great coffee table or guestroom book so that if someone would like to read just one second. I am not a “short“ story type of person, but it was enjoyable to read the “real life“ behind the scenes story. (although a lot of the stories I know they went into more detail) #FallTBR #IPromiseToRead

Finishing up this fun little book. A lot of information I already knew & an equal amount that was new to me. Highly recommend for the horror buffs.
