Wow, Guinness bread mix sounds really interesting. Everyone's packages look great.
And.... Bryn arrived home today with a huge box full of awesomeness. Here's some pictures but I really couldn't do it justice. Wildfyre was super generous and included all kinds of souvineers! I was totally blown away. I told her that I collect postcards and she made sure that I received a ton of those too.
Here's a broad shot of all the paper goods she sent along. This includes brochures, maps, postcards, newsletters, stickers -- tons of amazing stuff. I'm actually planning a vacation to her part of the country next year so some of this stuff will really come in handy.
Here's a shot of Bryn standing on the scrapbook with her new metalic skirt that Wildfyre made for her. To the left are some fossil rocks she found. Also on display here are chocolates from Seattle, cute pressed coin souvineer, and a special suit case for Bryn which included passport, money, photos and Hello Kitty stickers. Actually, she came back home with more money than she left with. As a mother, I'm slightly concerned she's been up to no good.
And yes, more stuff!! Wildfyre sent all kinds of cool souvineers including Boeing pins, pen, badge attachment, & magnet. There is also two magnets from Seattle and Mt. Rainier and a miniature (but growing!) space needle. She also picked up a key chain and shot glass from the Zoo (I love the sea horses!!) and a Mt. Rainier mini cup. There was also the cutest little bag from Seattle with the Space Needle. I love!!
This is probably my favorite part. She made me Skamper the Squirrel from a 70's Hallmark kit!!! How amazing is this?! I absolutely love it. I wanted to get a shot of her tail, which also has the flower print but I think I'm already over my allowed photo limits on this thread as is. Anywhoo -- it's super cool.
And here's some pages from the scrapbook. I really like this shot of Bryn and the sunset. Wildfyre included tons of pages in the scrapbook and even made the cover herself.
This is probably my all time favorite shot of Brynn from her trip. She's posing in front of Mt. Rainier. Everything looks so beautiful!!
Thanks so much, wildfyre!!! You totally spoiled me rotten. I really appreciate all the souvineers and goodies that you included. It's all too much. Best swap ever? I'm hard pressed to think of a runner up.
