Comment: Hi Maiju, Thank You for the fun Halloween supplies you sent me, coming from Germany. I love what you sent because it is all stuff that I’ve never seen. So, I know when I go to make a Halloween “something,” it will be special as it will be unique. I looked on your envelope to see what city in Germany you live in, but I wasn’t familiar with your city. I have a nephew that lives in Stuttgart. He went to college both in Atlanta, Georgia and in Stuttgart. He got a double majorin German and Mechanical Engineering. He is working for a small company in Stuttgart. He is the first American the company has ever hired. He got his evaluation and he got a GREAT EVALUATION! Thank You so much again! I hope we are able to swap many times. Until our next swap, Happy Swapping! Barbara Brandt, sleepingrover2010 P.S. I really like your Swap-bot Card. If I get to send something to you, I will send my Swap-bot card.
