It's arrived!!!!! Thank you so much @teebe for my #secretsantagoespostal #ssgp #wintersolsticebookexchange parcel. Posted in mid-December it arrived today. I think it must be a record. Such wonderful gifts. I love each and every one. I will search for your book recommendations too. Such kindness. A big, big thank you.
@Avanders @MrBook @BookBabe

And thank you once again to @squirrelbrain for your wonderful #ssgp gift too.

Love to you both.

Tameeka The Ocean at the End of the Lane is so good! 5y
MayJasper Thank you @Tameeka I read my first Neil Gaiman last year and can't wait for my next. 5y
squirrelbrain Gosh, that did take a long time! It must have been stuck in customs somewhere along the way.... or maybe Santa liked it and tried to keep it for himself! 5y

Omgggg! Thank you so much @LibrarianRyan I love it all! Did you make the unicorn bookmark? So cute! Also your letter was so sweet, I definitely will follow in your footsteps in future swaps. Thank you again!!! #secretsantagoespostal #wintersolsticebookexchange

MayJasper Splendid 😍 5y
LibrarianRyan Yes. Made the unicorn and the two clay book marks. Glad you liked it. I was a little worried since I sent 4 packages last Saturday and all should be there. I got your tag as I was digging for a tracking number. 5y
WellReadCatLady @LibrarianRyan the bookmarks are really well made and so cute! 5y
