I officially received a bloated package from Elissa at Cerebral Excrement in the last week of April. Elissa has a gift for haiku and makes me laugh all the time.
Here's an example of one her haiku from last week.

Elissa says, " Isn't it funny when people are embarrassed/proud of their farting?"
My flatulent friend
I would not have known your crime
Had you not confessed
Follow her for 17 daily syllables of fun! Anywho, I entered a giveaway on her blog and won! (Actually, she was so kind that she made every contestant a winner) As a winner, a lovely package of goodies was sent my way all the way from Australia. I was trying to exercise self control and pace out my snail mail treats so I waited until the first weekend in May to open it up and here's what I found...
It began with a listing of what was inside the package. I love her handwriting.
Inside was a tiny matchbox with this bright and beautiful paper and a letter "f" for me!
Inside the matchbox was a beautiful pair of earrings!
Next was this paper bag that said "Je t'aime" in bright yellow letters under a pretty blue bow.
Inside the bag were these koala themed sweets all the way from Australia and a little koala bear catcher too! The Caramello Koala was delish!
It didn't stop there! Next was this package wrapped in graph paper. It reminded me of how I used to do poorly in math but soared at Battleship!
Inside was this fun mushroom stamp! I love the randomness of it all.
WAIT! There is still more!
A beautiful birdcage!
