Letter Exchange: Texas

Letter Exchange
Lulu & Em received their second letter yesterday from 2 little girls in Texas. What a wonderful surprise to receive a large envelope filled with a letter telling all about the sisters, a picture of the girls, a postcard showing the state flower, a painting, a map showing where the girls were adopted from, a handmade book for me(!) and two beautiful felt button cards for the girls to practice buttoning! Wow! I think there was a very crafty mama behind all this wonderfulness! The girls and I did not expect such a great package. Thank you! We all loved it!

I was inspired by the 2 maps that were included in the package. I created a project using a map! Stay tuned.

I love that state map!

Please do not feel you have to send Lulu anything more than a letter or drawing from your child. She is just excited to receive mail and look for your home states/ countries on her map!

Branflakes: I got the map at the Dollar Tree.

did you get an email with your swap partner info? I need to get it to you, but I'm getting emails that say that it's undeliverable...
