The kids are back today so they got to open their #blitsy packages. Corrine loved all her goodies. She‘s excited the most for the tagged book (another one I may have to swipe.) We‘ve been doing a lot of puzzles recently & this one looks fun. She‘s going to have to hide the bunny because the puppy thought it was for him - she snatched it back from him pretty quick. Thanks @Chelleo for hosting - the kids had a lot of fun (and so did I!)

Nebklvr Ways to make sunshine was a good book! Hope she enjoys it as much as I did. 3mo
Chelleo Beautiful! That puzzle looks fun! Poor pooch…no gifts for you 😂 2mo
Gissy Nice! She looks so happy! 2mo
Sbonnette Sorry I‘m just seeing this! I puzzle was fun! 1mo

The kids are back, so they got to open their #blitsy packages. Caden thought everything was awesome & he‘s super excited about the tagged book. He also got his dad a Black Panther water bottle a couple years ago and was excited to have his own. We all agree the gummy bears are tasty (they rival the albanese ones.) (I plan on swiping the tagged book when he‘s not here 🤓)

Chelleo Aww!!! Love it! I want to read the tagged book too! We also love the Albanese gummies! That candy came from a local black owned candy shop and the swaps give me a reason to visit them. So glad he liked everything! 2mo
Gissy Nice! 2mo
Amandajoy @chelleo do they have a website? My husband would like to order some more. 2mo

@DebinHawaii you are awesome! I am ridiculously excited about the books, though the tagged book looks like it‘s just going to increase my TBR exponentially. I‘m tempted to frame & hang all the notecards on my library wall (though I fear there won‘t be room. I‘ve had tea from this brand before & it‘s delicious - tea strainers are always welcome. I told my hubby I must be an adult because I got excited about stamps. Love the bookmarks & washi tape.

Amandajoy @Chelleo & @butterfinger - the kids will be home on Friday to open their packages, I will post photos then 😊 3mo
Amandajoy Thank you @chelleo for a fun #blitsy swap! 3mo
Chelleo What an amazing package! Looking forward to Friday! 3mo
DebinHawaii Oh yay! I am glad you liked it all! 🤗 I am not here to judge if you want to hang up the cards rather than mail them to people & use the stamps for other things! 🤣 3mo

Omg! Thank you so much @GreenGrl87 for such beautiful and thoughtful gifts, I was speechless and love everything. @Chelleo thanks for another great #blitsy #bhms

Chelleo That tote!!! What‘s the little black rectangle thingy? 3mo
LeshaMac @Chelleo that tote is everything you hear me! That black thingy is lip bar and it‘s vegan. 3mo
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 🖤 3mo

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! 3mo
Butterfinger I'm glad you like it. 3mo
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!! 3mo
Readergrrl @Butterfinger I really do!! Thank you!! 3mo

Right on time, got my package for the #Blitsy swap!!! Thank you sm for making sure I got these lovely pieces @Chelleo i almost couldn‘t open them bc the wrapping paper was so gorgeous!! I‘ll make an additional post reporting all the Black magic that‘s inside 👀✨

Chelleo I stumbled upon the wrapping paper a few years ago and am sad to see my stash is slowly dwindling…thankfully I recently found a new vendor and am already looking forward to using it next year! 3mo

@KatieDid927 This MADE my day. I love love love everything. I so wanted the 1619 Project-thank you! The other books, too. The great mug, postcards (I write to so many in Litsy Love), the magnets, chocolate….and the Obaamas -❤️❤️❤️. What a fabulous swap. I am so grateful. Thank you so very much.
And thank you @Chelleo for organizing every Feb.
