Me and an american friend exchange cards and small items every so often (generally for birthdays etc.) but I need to step it up.. or continue to participate in US to UK swap after swap.  Cheesy
I'm a UK-er and therefore my swappyness is in demand.   Cheesy

hmmm....i need to get me an american penpal so we can send letters and a couple of goodies over to each other every month or so
That would be brilliant! I loved putting the parcel together and getting one was fantastic!

The Oreos are so ridiculously moreish! And I noticed on the Sno-Caps it said "semi-sweet" - I can't help thinking if that's semi sweet, what on Earth is classified as sweet!

Here's just some of the stuff I received from Caterinaellen. It's pretty image heavy








And this isn't even half of it! I also got  a fairy stencil shirt, a cool pudding recipe book, a bobbie pub sign...I could post more pictures but it would take up a lot of space. If ya want me to, I can post it.
I was totally spoiled! Thank you soooo much!

Candy - loads of it!
Statue of liberty napkin rings and candle holder (i love these)

There was so much, cant believe how generous she is! i'm not around my package right now so i had to do this from memory so if i have left some out i will amend it later.

I too am looking for an american penpal, im English.

Heehee, I'm SO happy you like it all Jerra!! The newspaper I sent is The Onion, it's a satirical newspaper (just so you don't think it's my local broadsheet or anything, LOL!!). My favorite item was a zip pouch that looked like old school postcards of minnesota...I may have to get myself one! I also sent a completely random item...my old Indiana license plate! I KNOW you don't have those in England, and I've seen cool crafts made with them. I had it lying around and thought it might be fun. One of the candies I sent is Peeps. They are gross (although your little brother might well love 'em!) BUT it's fun to put two peeps in the microwave and watch the Battle of the Giant Peeps! Yes...I am 38... LOL. Oh, and the markers are permanent, so use wisely  and keep 'em away from your little bro!  Wink
Have fun!! I am starting my new fitness regimen tomorrow so have dutifully snarfed all my UK sweets this weekend! YUM!!  Grin
