Spring Swap Woe

My Spring Swap parcel to my partner in the US, has been declared officially missing.
Oh, woe, woe, woe is me.

I sent it off on the 4th May, and it still hasn't arrived. I packaged it carefully in a box sealed with masking tape, and added some extra goodies. Matilda's Own flower pins, delish smelling locally handmade soap, and some chocolate (of course). The address is correct, but it has disappeared.
I'm so sad.

I tell myself my partner doesn't think I never sent it, but the thought has crept in and I can't shake it. I will send her something else, of course I will, anyone who knows me, knows I would never say I had done something if I hadn't. I am guilty of having said I will do something and then taking a while (sometimes quite a bit) to do it. But if I say I did something, then I did.

Here's a couple of pictures of what I made.

Oh Mandy, I feel for you. Your swap gift looks lovely.

It is scary when you send internationally, especially when you go to so much trouble and put in some extra sweet goodies, plus the cost of the postage.

I do hope that it turns up soon.
