Thank You | Amelia Riedler

I wanted to thank you @Chelleo for my card and bookmark. I pinned the card on my map at school because of the Zimbabwe alphabet. Also, thank you for organizing the #BlitsySwap.

Chelleo You are very welcome and I‘m glad you liked the card. I was so excited when I came across them. 5d

I totally missed these posts this time around. My poor match probably gave up on me. 😂 Here are my answers anyway:

Hot chocolate
Umm... Shirley Chisholm
Jason Reynolds, Octavia Butler, NK Jemisin
YA, Memoirs, Sci Fi and Fantasy
I'm getting more and more into politics 🤷🏾‍♀️

I'm so lucky to be swapping with @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego again! She sent mine early and I definitely am not going to open it before February 29.
P.S. Anyone know of any @LitsySwaps loopholes that will make it okay for me to open this before February 29? jkjkjk :)

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego The wait is the worst part. #sorrynotsorry lol 3w
TheAromaofBooks Secret confession - I open my box as soon as it arrives, take a picture to post on the official opening day, and then just go for it! 😆 3w
RaimeyGallant @TheAromaofBooks You're tempting me!!! 3w

Chelleo Yay!! @TheAromaofBooks I'm shocked 😳 and appalled 😱 (and rather impressed 🤩😆 ) by this admission! @RaimeyGallant No peeking! 2w
TheAromaofBooks @Chelleo - I know, right?? I have minimal self-control! Although my FAVORITE is getting one that has several small items individually wrapped because THEN I open one a day for however long they last and completely savor them! 2w
EchoLogical Meanwhile, I'm over here still buying stuff for my match. I need to get it together. 😆 2w
Chelleo @TheAromaofBooks You are so bad! If I ever get matched with you in a swap I‘ll make sure it arrives the day of the swap! 😂🤣😂 2w
Chelleo @EchoLogical You‘ve still got time but don‘t make me hunt you down! 2w
EchoLogical @Chelleo I'm just taking my time to make it extra special. Also, I'm doing a good deed by making sure it doesn't arrive too early and creating an agonizing waiting period. 🤣 2w
Chelleo @EchoLogical Fair points! Carry on. ✊🏽 2w
TheAromaofBooks @Chelleo - haha yes, maybe my problem has just been swap partners who are too prompt!! 😂 2w
RaimeyGallant @EchoLogical @Chelleo @TheAromaofBooks @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Everyday I'm asking myself, surely one little incision into my package, say 1-inch squared, wouldn't be a breach of the rules. Surely @litsyswaps should enact a 1-inch squares peephole provision. ;)Danielle, your package is going out tomorrow! 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Your package has arrived! I can't wait. 💛 2w
RaimeyGallant @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Yea! I hope you like everything! :P 2w
Chelleo @stilllookingforcarmensandiego - noted that you received your packag! 5d
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Chelleo Thank you, sorry I should have tagged you. 5d

Shopping | Rosemary Wells

I have had so much fun shopping for @crazeedi and @erzascarletbookgasm. I am still awaiting some things from online ordering, but both should be mailed by Friday. I hope you like everything. I get so nervous about swaps so Jessie, if you have the books, I will replace them. That is also why I am tagging you. This is my first international swap and I don't want you wondering if you were forgotten. It is coming!!!!

erzascarletbookgasm I sent my package today, but forgot to snap a photo! I‘ve also ordered a book via Book Depository. So if my match receives a parcel from BD these two weeks, that‘ll be from me. Can you inform my match please, Michelle? 3w
