I got my package from sharc today! I love it! So many goodies from trinidad (sorry!! I fixed it!)! I really appreciated how sharc gave me lessons on Trinidad (fixed yet again!) throughout the swap experience too, thanks!!
Here's a big picture of all the food. Wow! there's a ton. I tried some of the Ping Pongs, they were good, that candy layer is surprising! I'm all ready to reward myself with an aero bar after my night class tonight.. I'm definitly going to be sharing some of the snacks.. but not those!
here's a close up of my loves, along with some of the other candy
I also got some exciting looking spices and such that I'm sure my dad will love. It's hard to cook in a dorm, but I'll be home next weekend and I'll get him to follow some of the exciting sounding recipes that Sharc included (I'm most looking forward to the trini sweet bread and curry beef!)
I also got some great looking yarn, hand-dyed. I've wanted to dabble in yarn dying for a long time, I'm excited to have some so I can be inspired!
and there's more!
I got two fancy looking stitch markers (my first ones ever!) and beautiful charms, I LOVE the turtle one! Sorry about the quality of the photos, they're from my camera phone.. my digi died on me
Last but not least (unless I'm forgetting somethign! eep!), I got two cds; a comedian and some calypso music. I love comedians, I'm sure I'll be sitting here laughing and scaring my roommate when I hear them. I've played calypso music in band.. it'll be nice to hear a good version of it
Sharc: thank you thank you thank you!!!
I know you've recieved from me, if you want.. I have pictures of everything before I sent it.
