Gimme Your Stuff, an international swap/exchange deal, sounded like a great idea that sounded even greater once I found Anjali‘s cute and crafty blog. Based in Japan, Anjali offered up for swap all manner of things that make my heart go pitter patter. Luckily, she did not catch on that I was a little too freakishly excited about swapping with her and thus agreed to a swap of fabrics, lip balms, and matcha treats.
In just over a week the mailman climbed up our stairs carrying a big blue padded envelope. He’s lucky I didn’t knock him down.
But wait, there’s more! My mother has a lip balm she got in Japan that has put me in a bit of an obsessive state. It’s called Sakura Pink, and though the balm itself is white, it goes on pink. I swear. Magic. I requested this balm from Anjali, and she came through.
