Default I got my swap blocks!!!

For the first time I participated in a swap hold in the USA!! The theme was "Winter Wonderland" and the blocks should refer to anything related to winter!!! I had to sent my blocks at the beginning of January because it will last up to 4 weeks the package will reach its destination!!
And as I'm still shocked about the lost of my Christmas package I sent to my children in SF I spent some 2 extra to get a tracking number! I could have saved this money because the tracking number told me after 10 days: " the recipient in SPAIN was not at home, we left a note,he can take it from the post office"!!!
You can imagine how shocked I was.... But at least everything went fine, my blocks arrived where they should arrive and two days ago I got mine!!!


Here are the blocks I got and I must say they are all wonderful!!! A big thank you to all the other participents!!!

Good for you, girl!! They are adorable! Yes, I know about having to track a pkg. My DGD, son in law & 5 darling grandkis (growing wayyy too fast, (17 to 9) they are my avatar pic taken 4 yrs ago). They live in China & in 2012 had sent them a lrg pkg of Christmas gifts. They & we kept tracking it.. finally a rep told me "good news & bad news". Good news: "We found it"! Bad news: "it's in Mexico"! So that pkg went from Texas to Chicago to Mexico to China. Took wks & wks but so far other pkgs have arrived in a reasonable time & boy, oh boy is shipping USPS expensive. Think I need to just send $.
Thanks for sharing pics...
