I received my package and sent my via DHL with automatic confirmation.  This feature does not allow anyone but me to view the tracking number unfortunately.  I'm sure she's received it by now.  I think I sent to punkys_mom.

Mochiko, I got my package!!! Thank you so much. I can't take pictures because my husband took my laptop and his computer doesn't have Photoshop. I got Japan as my culture. A cute bobblehead (my daughter took it) in a cute bag I will be using a lot, a japan notebook with recipes and other info, a cd (haven't had a chance to watch yet) and origami instructions and paper (yay!!!). Thank you so much. I hope you like what I sent you!

 Cheesy I got my package today too, thanks so much hawaiilove! it's a beautiful (handmade?) purple, deep blue, and polka dotted gray feather fan reminiscent of South American Carnival parties, a cute little painting of a South American village and people dancing amongst the streets (perhaps practicing capoiera?) and a cd full of *awesome* Brazilian music!! I love it and I'm so glad you like my stuff, too Smiley If I can ever find my digital camera recharger, I will take pics of the items!

As a side note, try playing the cd on your computer hawaiilove, because I added music videos and mp3's mostly (if not all)  Cool
