Thank you Sharon- I have never seen coasters like that before. I liked them so much I gave it a try.

A squishy is a padded envelope with wonderful things inside! Like fabric or blocks! They are VERY fun to get! :lol:
You get giddy like a school girl opening them up!

Is there a "Squishy" protocol? Do people just send them to whoever or are they pretty much something you send when someone has asked for a specific item or piece of fabric or ?? I have sent them to different folks who have asked for things that I can provide...i.e. pieces of fabric selvages or flannel scraps for quilts but from the sounds of this thread there might be other times that a person would send a squishy that doesnt' contain a specifically requested item. That would be fun...kinda like "pay it forward."

squishys are just fun things, it can be something someone has mentioned needing or a complete surprise. The call is yours and the mood you are in at the time. It can be an exchange between 2 people or... a send to a person and that person pays it forward to someone else. If you are wanting one back in exchange make that clear up front. They are just fun things to get instead of bills all the time. What you put in a surprise one is totally your call.
Just have fun with it :D

I agree with Sharon M. I like to kind of pick up on someone's "mood" and make their day brighter.

I love to send squishys and brighten someone's day. I just ask they "pay it forward" and just enjoy! (And paying it foward doesn't mean sending on a squishy, it could mean just saying you care about someone- just be nice to a fellow human is good enough for me)
