Valentine's Day Swap
I guess I should be blogging more often-at least that's the word from my middle son, Ryan. He doesn't know this, but I am just tickled that he even looks at this! I have been busily preparing a package of goodies to send to my new friend, Monica, in Italy. I had such fun creating and shopping for her. She is a delight and I am so hoping she will like her Valentine's Day gifts. It was my first experience with mailing anything to Europe. Next time I will be a pro! The box I sent weighed 22 lbs. and I packed it to withstand an atomic blast, so hopefully all will arrive safely. We are supposed to post photos of our gifts on Flickr, but being new to this, I am not sure my photos are of the quality needed. It also happens that at around 11:30 last night, while I was getting the last of the gifts wrapped and into the shipping carton, my camera died . I figured out what was up this afternoon, but it was too late to photograph some of the items I sent. Maybe I can talk her into taking some shots when the package arrives. If you haven't seen her photographic skills, you should look here-White Bench. I am finding that there are a great many things that Miss Monica is proficient in doing.
