Coraline Mystery Box
March 26, 2009
It’s Monday, February 16th 1:56 PM Oregon time and I am at my laptop. I’ve got the timer on the oven set to beep in 3 minutes just in case I am not paying attention. I’m already in my email and have one drafted with what I imagine will be the required information, name, address, blog address. I’ve got that nervous feeling that I get when I am bidding the last couple of seconds for something on eBay. Refresh, refresh, nothing yet. I am waiting for this.
It’s the countdown to the post that will contain the email address to participate in the swap. There is a max of 50 people (apparently in the end only 44 signed up) and the other 80 commenters all said they would be waiting to sign up so I thought I should too.
1:59 PM – baby whining “One second, honey. Mommy will be right there.”
2:00 PM – there’s the signup post, right on time.
2:00 PM – read, read, cut, copy
2:01 PM – send
Yes, I am weird but if you have read anything on this blog you have probably figured that out already. Oh, and it get’s worse. I had already started building my box before the timelines and partner assignments were even posted.
And here is what I sent to King Carmen:
And here are all the boxes in the swap. What amazing fun. Great treasures!
