A friend from Argentina told me she wanted a Hello Kitty toaster like the one David bought for me. I wish I could give her one (maybe when I go to Buenos Aires to visit? :p); but in the meantime, I sent her a few Hello Kitty goodies I bought over at Party City.
Every time I go to that store, I supply myself with little trinkets and sweets to send together with my letters.
I usually stock myself with things from Walmart's clearance section as well. Look at the little treasures I found :).
Mini erasers :p.
I also like to use free stuff to write my letters on such as these menus from The Hat.
They added a full Jelly Belly station in a local grocery store. I couldn't help grabbing a couple of bags even though I didn't buy anything :/. I plan on using them as envelopes.
I got to ship the prizes to most of my giveaway winners; here's one of the packages.
I wish I could send boxes to my buddies in Argentina, too! If only international postage wasn't so expensive! :(.
As for incoming mail, I got these letters from Mary, Katie and Anne :D.
Look at all the stationery Katie sent p!
I got this awesome unexpected box from Ashley :D. She's the very first friend I made thanks to this blog and the designer of this blog's layout ;).
By the way, if you wonder why you see my last name as Gima and Iannetta, the first one is my maiden name. I got used to using David's, but I still have stickers with my old name printed on.
This is the Hello Kitty I got :P. It's now next to my little Teddy Bear, the only object that belonged to my mom that I brought with me when I moved.
Last but not least, my awesome husband has surprised me once again with a majestic package! A friggin' sewing machine!!! :O I really couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. I've been meaning to learn how to sew for so long! :D Well, now I can, yay! I have no idea how to use it, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. If you girls happen to know of a website where I can find very basic tutorials, would you please let me know? ;) Thanks a lot!
This week should be quite hectic, I really need to get myself into reading and submitting assignments for school ... I hope I can get in the mood! I'll try my very best.
Have a majestic week, everyone! ;D
