@MeganAnn … you made my day! Not only did you send these lovely items, the kind note was perfectly timed after a busy day and an anticipated stressful one tomorrow. I‘m so thankful for the Litsy community and Littens like you! #BlitsyHistoryMonth #BlitsySwap #BHMS

MeganAnn Oh I‘m so happy they arrived and that they could make your day a tiny bit better! 💖 5mo
Chelleo Did you make the card? I just noticed your signature as I was looking at it. It‘s beautiful and I plan on framing it. She looks so serene. 5mo
Chelleo Sorry, forgot to tag you @MeganAnn 5mo
MeganAnn @Chelleo yes I did! I painted it following a tutorial by Let‘s Make Art on YouTube. I love that you plan to frame it 🥰 5mo
Chelleo @MeganAnn It really is beautiful and screaming to be framed! 5mo

I forgot to post yesterday because life has been beyond busy. Thank you @Readergrrl for the package. I haven‘t read either book. The larger book looks interesting but will have to wait till summer when there is more time to read. Thank you again! @Chelleo thank you again for organizing such a great swap #bhms #blisty2022

Chelleo We love those Crayola colors and such a cool idea to include the EW magazine! 5mo

@Kdgordon88 Debra, I LOVE my #BlitsySwap box so much! I wanted both books & had to stop myself from buying them over the holidays. The journal is pretty & you know I adore JA!😉The Amanda Gorman canvas print is so lovely-I can‘t wait to hang it up. Love the pencil bag & matching pencils, the sticker book & the bookmarks. Yogurt pretzels & Moonstruck chocolates are also favorites. THANK YOU! After a looong day this was so amazing to come home to!⬇️

DebinHawaii Thank you to @Chelleo for hosting such a fantastic #blackhistorymonthswap #bhms #blacklitsy 🤎🖤🤎 5mo

Thank you @ncsufoxes - Jessica! Every choice is amazing and I really appreciate the note and personal connection you shared with the books and the gifts. I am looking forward to tomorrow morning‘s coffee, the chocolate and the notebook (which is not too large.) The Baldwin sentence diagram is brilliant. I was enough of an English nerd that I liked diagramming sentences in school. Love it all. #blitsyswap #bhms

Book reviews to come!

Chelleo You‘ve got some great titles there! Love the mug and journal too! 5mo

I love everything so much, and I‘m so thrilled you included my favorite vegan treats! 💗 Happy Black History Month! Also, thank you @Chelleo for continuing to be such an amazing host for this swap- I literally look forward to our #BHMS all year! And thank you for the beautifully thoughtful card & bookmark.

EchoLogical Yay! I‘m glad it made it there in time. I kept checking the hashtags to see if you posted about receiving it. Lol. 5mo
GreenGrl87 It did! So sorry to keep you waiting, I just got back in time and had to stop by my parents‘ house because they were picking up my packages for me. 5mo
Chelleo Oh, those socks and that journal!! 5mo

Chelleo That tote!!! What‘s the little black rectangle thingy? 5mo
LeshaMac @Chelleo that tote is everything you hear me! That black thingy is lip bar and it‘s vegan. 5mo
GreenGrl87 You‘re so welcome! I‘m glad your goodies arrived safe and sound! That lippie a personal fave (well most of those things are, I swear the hair skin & nail vitamins are magic!✨) Happy Black History month @LeshaMac 🖤 5mo

I love my #Blitsy swap package! Thank you so much! I‘ll be wearing the T-shirt tomorrow and I can‘t wait to add the books to my collection. I‘ve been sharing books with my students at school this month and I know they‘ll love to these additions! I‘ll be reading them first, though!! ❤️ The cards a great too! I‘ve never seen this set before. Thank you SO much!!

Chelleo Oooohh that new cover of TEWWG is gorg! Great package! 5mo
Butterfinger I'm glad you like it. 5mo
Readergrrl @Chelleo Isn't it though?!? 💖 I've taught with this novel multiple times at my high school and always used a school copy. I've never actually had my own personal copy! This is more perfect than @Butterfinger expected, I bet! Great choices!! 5mo
Readergrrl @Butterfinger I really do!! Thank you!! 5mo

An amazing #blitsyswap package from @Endowarrior21 😍 Two fantasy books from my TBR. I cannot get over these gorgeous covers, especially the tagged which I‘ve been eyeing for so long — it‘s even more beautiful in person. Plus a beautiful bookmark, glittery ornaments & sticky page flags. My favorite is the body butter which smells amazing (eucalyptus mint scented) and is perfect for me. Thank you Jessi for such thoughtful gifts! #bhms

MeganAnn And extra thanks to @Chelleo for once again being a wonderful swap host and sending out notecards and bookmarks to each of us. I look forward to this swap every year! 💖 There‘s a little something heading your way in the mail. 5mo
squirrelbrain Gorgeous gifts! 5mo
riversong153 I‘ve read both of these books 🙌🏾💜💜 5mo
Chelleo Both are good reads! (I'm a big fan of the Gilded Ones!). Those ornaments are darling! And Thanks for taking part and for whatever is heading my way. 😍 5mo
Endowarrior21 Your welcome I had fun making and buying everything for you. 😊 5mo
