Forgot to post my #littlechristmasswap package on opening day. I even took the pic, then promptly was distracted by my little monsters and it left my mind

Thank you so much @BiblioLitten ! I hid the treats from the kids and the book is amazing!

Also, thanks to @bookish_wookish for organizing! My package ended up getting caught up in some bad weather we had just as I sent it, but I checked and it is on the move still. Sorry it's arriving late

BiblioLitten I‘m glad that you like the book. I enjoyed this swap very much.♥️ 1w

@FantasyChick thank you so very much for the amazing #creepychristmas package! I love it all. And the tumbler has perfect timing as I just had to get rid of my old favorite (this one's way cooler anyway lol).

@teebe thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to organize a fantastic swap.

Happy holidays everyone

FantasyChick Yes!!! I'm thrilled that you love it! I wasn't sure what to add in for some creepy gifts but I was pretty impressed with how the tumbler turned out. So glad it's something you can use! Have a great Christmas 😘 3w
BooksAndYarn @FantasyChick Happy holidays! And thank you so much once again 3w

My #CreepyChristmas swap package has arrived @FantasyChick . When I get packages my husband puts them in my craft room in case it's Christmas gifts for the kids. I found this one yesterday and put it under my tree lol. Thank you so much, I can't wait to open it!

@teebe

FantasyChick Oh yay!!! So happy it made it. I was getting worried. I just checked the tracking at work and it is showing that it's in Quebec. Weird. 🤔 But it made it so you have a gift and some poor FedEx worker doesn't have to feel my wrath today 🤣🤣🤣 4w
BooksAndYarn @FantasyChick FedEx packages come in to an airport in Quebec then a delivery driver brings it to our door here. The Quebec border is about a 1/2 an hour drive from me. 4w

What a wonderfully generous surprise this was. I received a package that I was fairly confident I hadn't ordered, which turned out to be from my #AllHallowsReadsSwap partner. CP lost my original package, which happens, & I had let it go as one of those things then this arrived from @BeeMagical & I am so appreciative of the kind gesture. Book people are definitely the best people. Thank you so much, they all look fantastic
@MaleficentBookDragon

BeeMagical So happy these ones arrived!!😂❤️ I hope you enjoy them all!! 1mo
MaleficentBookDragon YAY!!! and thank you @BeeMagical you are the best!!!! 4w

BooksAndYarn @FantasyChick Yes! It was hiding from my kids in my craft room lol. That's where my husband and I put all packages now in case they're Christmas gifts so we can open stuff without little eyes seeing. Thank you so much! 4w

BooksAndYarn @BeeMagical was it from bookoutlet? I got a package from there yesterday and won't open it because I know I haven't ordered anything recently lol 1mo
BiblioLitten Hey 👋🏼 You were my match for #LCS. 💜They said it would take only a week to reach your place but I guess it might take time. It‘s from Canada Post though, not Book Outlet. 😊 Posted on Dec 2 1mo

BeeMagical Yes yes! That is the one from me!! I almost cried when it finally said delivered 😂 #AHS (edited) 1mo
BooksAndYarn @BiblioLitten thanks! I'll keep an eye out. Our mail comes from Newfoundland via ferry and the weather has been nuts lately and the ferry has been held up a lot so mail service is even slower than usual 1mo
BiblioLitten I understand. We do have time until opening day so fingers crossed 🤞🏽 1mo
BeeMagical @booksandyarn - You can MOST certainly open it!! It was my make up for a disastrous first attempt at sending my #AHS box 😓 Which is still M.I.A (thanks C.P LOL)🙄 1mo
BooksAndYarn @BeeMagical that's so generous, thank you so much! I hope you know I was fully aware it was a Canada Post thing, not a swap partner thing 1mo
BeeMagical @BooksAndYarn I felt SO bad, I was NOT letting CP get the best of me so I did whatever I could to get something to you!!💙💙 1mo

Receiving mail has been abysmal these past two weeks with the weather preventing ferry crossings sp I waited forever for the book for this, but my package for the Jolabokaflop swap was posted today.

@LibrarianRyan
My cards for the Holiday Card Swap finally went out today.
My post office ran out of stamps I needed for US postage, so the postal worker printed off labels for me... which were too large for most of the envelopes I had (which I had already written addresses on 🙄) so off I went tracking down more envelopes and re-writing everything. Quite the adventure I tell you lol

#cardswap #holidaycardswap #holidaycardswap2021

KateReadsYA Im gonna appreciate my card so much haha that sounds like an adventure. 1mo
LibrarianRyan Oh no! I have never heard of a post office running out of stamps. 1mo
BooksAndYarn @LibrarianRyan we are in a very small town and our mail (as well as some foods and whatnot) comes from Newfoundland Island on a ferry. With the weather this time of year there can be days at a time when the ferry can't cross so things get backed up and slow down 1mo
BooksAndYarn @KateReadsYA I got a story out of it anyway lol 1mo

Do you keep manual book logs? I have two. This is the first one I started, where I draw a bookshelf or just separate shelves on a page and add a book when I read it. Book series go on their own, labeled shelf.

SeaToSkyes This is something I want to start doing! 2mo
kplovesbooks I've never done this, but I love the concept! 2mo
