A Halloween Miracle

Way back on the 13th of October, Kathy won the daily giveaway.

Kathy spends her winters in Arizona, so I made sure to get her package out within just a couple days to give it plenty of time to make it to Canada, before she left.

Canada Post and I have a history.

Sadly, even though I sprung for the “speedy” postage, the package did not arrive before Kathy’s departure at the end of October.

There was no telling what would happen to the package.ย  Would it come back to me?ย  Would it be forwarded?ย  Would it sit inย a mailbox for months?

Happily, my good deeds for the last few weeks were well rewarded ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Not only was the package forwarded by Canada Post, but it made it safely to Kathy, now in Arizona, last week!

What it contained:

  • Snap bag
  • Kylie-original bookmark
  • Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews
  • Duck, stamp, pencil and candy (not shown)

The remaining smallย odd day packages have also arrived:

Catherine (21st):

What it contained:

  • Small Trick or Treat bag
  • Witch (Prairie Schooler) Needlebook
  • Bendy Skeleton
  • Pencil, stamp and candy (not shown)

Heather (27th)

What it contained:

  • Haunted House (Prairie Schooler) needlebook
  • Braided floss tag
  • Bat toy
  • Pencil, stamp and candy bag

Nia (29th)

What it contained:

  • Snap bag
  • Beaded fob
  • Vampire toy
  • Bendy skeleton
  • Stamp, pencil (no candy… I forgot ๐Ÿ™ )

I’m headed out of town for work this week, so not sure if I’ll be posting until I return.ย  I do have a bit of stitching and a book or two travelling with me ๐Ÿ™‚ย  So I should have progress to show on my return!

  1. Wow…there are always hints from those who send to Canada about their “service”…this is the first good thing I think I have read! The packages you sent were very nice…both you and Missy did such a great job and it was fun to sign in each day and wait for the winners…thanks again…

  2. Glad Canada Post didn’t eat the package after all. All those pics make me excited to participate next year. I have toooo many ideas and really need to buckle down and settle on one or two. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You and Missy Ann have corrupted me well and good!

  3. So glad it made it to Kathy! What great prizes for the lucky winners too!

  4. That’s really good news! Great post service ๐Ÿ˜€
    I love my goodies ๐Ÿ™‚ Once again, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m so curious with the snap bag, it’s such a cool piece but I don’t know what to use to make one! Can you tell me what kind of supply you used to make the snap opening?
    Have a great week!!
