Hi Barb!

I received you Paper Bomb package today, and I am super thrill with the wonderful goodies you included. And thank you for the personal note you included as well. I did not include a personal note in my package. I need to remember that next time around.
I didn’t even indicate my swapbot name which is Ziavella. My apologies. My package will come from Patrizia Velez. You should receive it today. I do hope you enjoy what I sent you. Have a blessed day, and thanks again!! ❤️
