Wednesday of last week started so right. The creative swap haul sent by my partner arrived. Immediately I munched on the galletas (that little pack of bread-crackers, that’s how we call it in Laguna). It reminded me so much of my late grandparents. I remember they normally dip that in black coffee. I also got banana chips, a tri-color yarn, handmade stickers (I’m using soon), and of course that neatly wrapped big surprise. When I read her letter, I really thought she read my mind.
“Since you love to travel and you love shoes, I made a shoe bag for you to put your beloved shoes inside when you are on the go….
…and to make it more special, I also made a shoe stuffer so your shoes won’t be deformed while traveling.”
As I told her (in the email), I was thinking of making/buying a shoe bag and stuffer. These came just in time.
(The shoe bag and shoe stuffer. Minus the shoes. I was just trying to fit in my current favorite pair.)
Further, she wrote,
I hope you’re a Twilight fan because I named this “The Twilight Shoe Companion”.
Ang galing! The color and fabric aptly matched my Twilight shoes. Yes, this pair is still alive. 🙂
Thank you again, Bem. And it made me feel more special and luckier when I learned who became your assistant while working on this one.
