Karen Beth hosted a themed swap where she asked participants to send their swap partners things that make them happy. This idea made me...well...ahem...happy, so I joined in on the fun.
I was lucky enough to be partnered with Stephanie. She sent me the most delightful package that included a delicately handmade book of poetry filled with some of her poems (which was a welcome oasis during my week of ups and downs), a much-loved favorite book (to replace mine that has been long loaned out), a little accordian fold book from Littleput Books, and a gorgeous pair of her handmade earrings (go check out her etsy shop! Her jewelry is beautiful).
In her note she said that the earrings were "fit for an earth mermaid." I must admit to tearing up at that. Thank you so much Stephanie!
