Taking a Tripp to the Islands

I finally made it to the post office this afternoon to pick up my package from the August Mailbox Surprise Swap hosted by Amalia Miller.

August’s Theme was TRAVEL. I struggled with ideas for my box, but obviously my Swap Sister, Donna Ettinger, did not. I SOOOO wish I was going to the location her box represented!

Well, let’s dig in!August box

The first thing I discovered was a typed note from Donna. I wish I had thought of that! I just stuck mine in the box and let it fly. As soon as I pulled up the note, I saw the bright colored flowers peeking through.

LeiPeekingAlmost immediately I knew I was on my way to the Hawaiian Islands! Hawaii is one of the places I’ve never been, but would love to visit! I know how to rock a good luau party, though, and now I’m really ready!

Perhaps the most fun item in the box, however, will keep me entertained for HOURS! I can’t decide if it’s going in my car or in my classroom.

Any guesses?

Drum roll, puh-leasssssssssssse!


Why, yes! She’s a solar powered hula girl!!!

This swap was so much fun that I’m doing it again in September! You can join us too! October is the next available month. Check it out!
