Arbitrary Day 2010: Super kawaii fun pack!

I participated in the First Annual Arbitrary Day swap and received this awesome pack of Japanese goodness from my Secret Santa:

Super kawaii fun pack!

The KitKat is Sakura Green Tea-flavored chocolate. It came in two packs, very delicious. And the snail is a tape measure — how cute is that?

I think I will frame the postcard. It is always Delicious Coffee Time here.

Speckled Egg Petite Inspiration Box Swap — Nesting Edition

Posted by on Apr 8, 2010 in craft, photo | 1 comment

I just participated in my first swap, and when I received two of my three co-swapees boxes, I was kind of surprised that they both had picked out bird themes — what a coincidence!

From Lonnie:

The stuff inside the boxes is at least as wonderful as the outsides.

But then I went back to the Speckled Egg Petite Inspiration Box Swap — Nesting Edition page and read the instructions and that is the thing. I thought “nesting” like in “domesticity”. Which is kind of silly because if you go look, there is a GIANT BIRD at the top of the page and it’s spelled out pretty clearly. So I totally failed my first swap.

I feel both guilty and amused. I like how my boxes came out anyway.
