Anyways, I'm not usually a huge commenter on blogs, but I might have mentioned I really like this particular blog? LOL. Michelle seemed really down to earth and I like her style of writing, so just felt compelled to comment... so I started commenting on lots of her posts.... and through this commenting Michelle and I started chatting and struck up a long distance friendship - we're like electronic penpals now (remember having penpals as kids? So fun!) :) And somewhere along the line we came up with this great idea that we should do a 'swap' of sorts of some handmade goodies for our kids - awesome!
So Michelle, being the super creative and efficient person she is, got right onto it and put together a box of goodies that made it here all the way from the US of A super fast! Just before she sent it off, she wrote this post as a sneak peek, featuring her daughter Felafel giving Alex's newest best friend to be (Super Bear) a test run - so gorgeous!
Alex was soooooo excited to receive it all, especially Super Bear (who has slept in his bed every single night since he arrived). He has a globe in his room, so when I said this package had come from a long way away, we got the globe down so he could see where Michelle and her family live in relation to our family.... a loooong way away!
Alex loves how Super Bear has a reversible cape... Red for daytime when he needs extra speed, and the blue sparkles on the other side (he tells me) are stars which means that's his night time cape :) In the box there were also a bunch of other cute things like a slinky, hand made recycled crayons, a bow tie, a lace up game and a book by John Lithgow called Marsupial Sue - wow!!! Here he is enjoying his goodies...
|Some quiet time reading Marsupial Sue - so cute!|

So where is my exchange package you might ask? Well, Michelle may have asked that as well, since it was a considerable amount of time between the arrival of Michelle's package and the posting of mine (except she wouldn't ask, because she's way too nice! :)) In any case, I did eventually complete my little projects and send them off, and they were gratefully received at their destination - more to come on that soon!
Its fantastic the people you can meet through this world wide wonderful web isn't it!! This was such a fun exchange to do - I really enjoyed it. And I love that I made a new friend in the process as well.
Bye for now :)
