September 14 - Magnetic

The Alice in Wonderland bookmarks I recently received in the #MerryUnbirthdaySwap from @curiouserandcurioser which I absolutely LOVE. The Dorothy (Bea Arthur) one I actually found in a used book I bought from the thrift store. 🤷‍♀️

Traci1 Those Alice ones are awesome. 4mo
Ruthiella Your story of how you came upon the Dorothy one only supports my theory that magnetic bookmarks are a little too easy to lose. 😅 4mo
curiouserandcurioser @aperfectmjk aww, that makes me so happy!!💜 here is to anything Wonderland!! 4mo

#LittensDressedInBlood #Day14 #WalkingWithAGhost This book fits the prompt perfectly. I read it for last years #scarathlon Set in 1880s St Louis, Jacob Tracy hasn‘t had a moment alone since almost dying on the battlefield at Antietam, ghosts plague his every waking hour. It‘s cost him his family, his calling in the church & almost his sanity. Trying to stay away from populated areas, he gets an unusual job offer & maybe a way to control his curse.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Hi Liz, how is the mail situation going over there? I think I might need to send you another #merryunbirthdayswap package. 4mo
Lizpixie @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego hi! It‘s still abysmal, I‘ve emailed @aperfectmjk about it, I‘m still waiting on books for my match! Auspost are gradually getting through the backlog but I‘m not holding my breath. 4mo
MidnightBookGirl Oooh, this sounds good! 4mo

aperfectmjk @Lizpixie I did go ahead and send your match some items. 4mo
aperfectmjk I will say though, there are some other international participants I'm not sure how to help because even if I try to send something, they may not get it. It's such a bummer. I almost wonder if a egift card would be a better option at this point 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Oh wow. That is pretty bad. Well I guess I won't send anything else just yet then. Hopefully things start turning up soon. If not we'll figure out something. 4mo
Lizpixie @aperfectmjk thank you lovely! I was starting to think about an egiftcard for my recipient myself! At least then she could get herself something. I‘m so sorry about this, I don‘t think our postal service really thought about what 3 months of strict lockdown would do to the amount of packages needing delivering. I‘ve got books I ordered for the hubby from before the lockdown that are still in limbo somewhere🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
Lizpixie @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I‘ll keep you posted😋on developments or lack thereof. I live in hope🙏 4mo

I like the book which was in my tbr👍Those bookmarks are so pretty😍❤️and the sticky notes😱so cute, love them, really!!! I will try that type of tea for the first time and they indicate that support the immune function, which is necessary at this time. I like to try new type of tea

Thank you so much!🥰📖❤️❤️❤️

I found some wonderful additions to my Alice in Wonderland collection while in Dayton, OH yesterday. The canvas print is an original piece of artwork created by an artist named Amy Kollar Anderson. I love it! 🥰

Yuki_Onna Malina, I hate to bring that up once again.
Today, as I'm compiling the #jolabokaflod and #lcs boxes for my matches, I had to think about the #merryunbirthdayswap you hosted earlier this year and how I somehow never got a box, cause my match was in lockdown...
Do you think she's got any intention on still sending that parcel out? Surely there hasn't been a lockdown for the post office in her area for months? I'd love to hear from you!
2mo
aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna I'm so sorry. I'm not really sure what's going on. I emailed her once again. I asked that if she's not able to mail out the gift, then if she could at least provide you with an egift card. That way you can get something. It's only fair that everyone receives something. To be honest, I will probably never host another swap due to this, which is just disappointing. 2mo
Yuki_Onna Whattt?😲 Noo, dear!!! That is NOT your fault!!! I didn't want to upset you!

2mo
Yuki_Onna Let me make this very clear:
Although of course I'm a bit disappointed for not having received a parcel yet, I am happy you hosted this wonderful swap! 🐰
You got me into #Litsyswaps - I had so much fun shopping for my match! - it was perfect! I got to know you and @hannah-leeloo because of it!
Please don't let unreliable people keep you from organizing swaps and enjoying Litsy!!!
I'd be happy to be participating in another swap of you again! 😚
2mo
hannah-leeloo Awww @aperfectmjk it's ok 🫂 no one blames you and I know @Yuki_Onna definitely doesn't. The swap was a fantastic idea for making friends and sharing our love of Alice. Maybe there was just an issue sending abroad so I've noticed future swaps are giving the option to send to nearer locations so these things don't happen. Here in the UK we're still experiencing problems with the post I know that. Big hug to you both. Happy reading and weekend 📖❤📚 2mo
Yuki_Onna Exactly @aperfectmjk ! 🤗 I didn't mean in the least to blame you or make you feel bad! 😚 Please don't feel offended, dear!
You did/are doing such a fantastic job! - There's always the possibility of excluding people who don't take their commitment seriously from future swaps, you know?
@hannah-leeloo Awww, I'm soo happy I met you because of Malina's #merryunbirthdayswap , my sweet friend! 😊🤗
2mo
aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna @hannah-leeloo thank you both. I know that this pandemic is making life very difficult for many. I think it's not too out of line for me to say that Litsy has been a beacon of light for many of us, a place we turn too when times are dark. The swaps bring an added light to that darkness, so that's why it hurts me to know that someone is still sitting in darkness so to speak. 2mo
hannah-leeloo We help who we can. Litsy is a fantastic community of friendship and care. It's helped me a lot also. I love the swaps and spreading that light @aperfectmjk 🫂❤ 2mo
aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna she has responded to my email and stated the parcel was sent when lockdown was lifted, however tracking was never sent to me. She did say that she would be happy to send another parcel. 2mo

Love love love my #merryunbirthdayswap gifts from @Gissy so much fun, I love it all!! Thank you so much! @aperfectmjk

wanderinglynn I love both those books! 💜💜💜 5mo
Gissy I‘m glad you liked it. The booksleeve was made by a friend of mine. I bought one for me too☺️The bookmark is from MyBookmarkshop. They have some peculiar, unique bookmarks. I tried to control myself but I bought one for me too😂. I have those two books but I haven‘t read them yet. I hope you didn‘t have the funko pop and didn‘t know what tea you liked so I thought that package would be a good idea. Enjoy your reading time! 📚🤗❤️❤️❤️ 5mo
BarkingMadRun @Gissy everything was perfect! I plan to check out that bookmark shop for sure, the pamphlet inside had so many cool examples, I want them all 🤣 5mo
aperfectmjk I love that booksleeve! 😍 5mo

Got my #merryunbirthdayswap 😄 Thank-you @DinoMom I love the Alice stamps and bookmark and can‘t wait to try all the coffee! Also excited to read Six Crimson Cranes as it‘s been on my TBR since I first heard about it.📚 @aperfectmjk

DinoMom Yay! I was so worried it was going to get lost in the mail. Mail has been so slow and weird lately. Glad it arrived. I also have this book on my TBR and hope to get to it at some point. Happy reading 5mo
Charityann @DinoMom Thanks!😄 5mo
