I'm enjoying the idea of trading and swapping things with strangers. In addition to getting a steady stream of excellent CDs from the Creative Perspectives Mix trade, I received a package yesterday as part of the Use What You Have craft swap.

It was such a delight to open the box, which came from Zambia by way of the UK, to enjoy all the little treats my swap partner, LuckyBeans had included.

A handmade bag just the right size for carrying my sketchbooks and art supplies came filled with Indian recipes and spices (plus the most delicious Madagascar vanilla pods!), and a box of lucky beans to tuck under my pillow.

A length of beautiful fabric tied with a wooden button and glass beads.

Miss Shrew, who quickly made friends with the Zous.

I am ashamed to say that I got better than I gave in this case. A more-deserving woman in Germany received a too-hurried package thin on content and without any clever details. But I will do much better next time I play, which I will do again because a box full of mystery presents is the best thing ever.
