WOO it‘s almost Black History Month! This is my kick off #BlitsySwap post! But…I‘ve messed up a little bit. So, I‘m participating in one of the coolest Litsy swaps #BHMS by the lovely @Chelleo
I sent my package off this week and forgot to take a snap. But I can tell y‘all that it is headed to Suffolk, UK 💌📚✊🏽 things have been kinda crazy (way crazier than usual) and i think I coulda done a better job, but I hope this gives my match a smile😃

Chelleo Woohoo! The first package is an route! 2w
Nalbuque @Chelleo WAT?? No way! I thought I was gonna be so late, I was shooting for the Jan 15 date of departure you had suggested 😅 2w
Chelleo LOL…most matches are in the US so there‘s plenty of time but things usually start moving at the end of January. 2w
Chelleo Your #Blitsy package arrived safe and sound! 2d
Nalbuque @Chelleo fantastic!! In my rush I forgot to write the hashtags on the box, so I worried my match would be confused or even concerned oooops 2d

@MeganAnn … you made my day! Not only did you send these lovely items, the kind note was perfectly timed after a busy day and an anticipated stressful one tomorrow. I‘m so thankful for the Litsy community and Littens like you! #BlitsyHistoryMonth #BlitsySwap #BHMS

MeganAnn Oh I‘m so happy they arrived and that they could make your day a tiny bit better! 💖 11mo
Chelleo Did you make the card? I just noticed your signature as I was looking at it. It‘s beautiful and I plan on framing it. She looks so serene. 11mo
Chelleo Sorry, forgot to tag you @MeganAnn 11mo
MeganAnn @Chelleo yes I did! I painted it following a tutorial by Let‘s Make Art on YouTube. I love that you plan to frame it 🥰 11mo

I forgot to post yesterday because life has been beyond busy. Thank you @Readergrrl for the package. I haven‘t read either book. The larger book looks interesting but will have to wait till summer when there is more time to read. Thank you again! @Chelleo thank you again for organizing such a great swap #bhms #blisty2022

Chelleo We love those Crayola colors and such a cool idea to include the EW magazine! 11mo
Readergrrl That‘s great!! Hill‘s book is one of my favorites! 😊😊😊 11mo

@Kdgordon88 Debra, I LOVE my #BlitsySwap box so much! I wanted both books & had to stop myself from buying them over the holidays. The journal is pretty & you know I adore JA!😉The Amanda Gorman canvas print is so lovely-I can‘t wait to hang it up. Love the pencil bag & matching pencils, the sticker book & the bookmarks. Yogurt pretzels & Moonstruck chocolates are also favorites. THANK YOU! After a looong day this was so amazing to come home to!⬇️

DebinHawaii Thank you to @Chelleo for hosting such a fantastic #blackhistorymonthswap #bhms #blacklitsy 🤎🖤🤎 11mo

Thank you @ncsufoxes - Jessica! Every choice is amazing and I really appreciate the note and personal connection you shared with the books and the gifts. I am looking forward to tomorrow morning‘s coffee, the chocolate and the notebook (which is not too large.) The Baldwin sentence diagram is brilliant. I was enough of an English nerd that I liked diagramming sentences in school. Love it all. #blitsyswap #bhms

Book reviews to come!

Chelleo You‘ve got some great titles there! Love the mug and journal too! 11mo
