About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Fabulous Mail and a big BOO!

   There is nothing like getting a package in the mail with your name on it.  And yesterday there were two- one for me and one for Katie!  Let's start with Katie's package.  Katie was partner was Andrew (Holly's darling little boy) in the One Good Book Swap for kids.  She was so excited to open up the box!
   The first thing she said as she opened the box was "It's PINK!"  Her favorite color:)  And look at the precious card that Holly and Andrew made for her:

   They sent Katie the super cute (and oh so pink!) book Fancy Nancy.  If you have not read this book, you must!  It is such fun- and so fancy!  They also included a glittery, pink "K", a pink feather boa, and more!

   Look at all the treasures!  A magic wand, a darling tutu, a crown- oh my!  Katie is in heaven!  Thank you so much Holly and Andrew!  We are mailing your package today and we hope Andrew loves everything.:)
By the way, Holly is hosting a Snowflakes and Sparkle Swap for Christmas.  I have signed up and you should, too!  What's better than Snowflakes and Sparkle??!:)

   Now, on to my amazing Fall package from the Fall Swap that I hosted....  This was from my friend Beth and was I in for a treat...
Look at the card she sent me!  Nancy Drew- my favorite!

   Look at all the goodies!  Mulling spices, cute towels, a pumpkin making kit, the cutest bag (blue) for shopping so I can stop accumulating those crazy plastic bags- Beth made it for me!  Love it!  Now I am safe from that insane lady shopper!  (inside joke)  Pumpkins and gourds for decorating, notecards, cute figurines and a darling "pumpkin boy"...

   But the best part of all was the DARLING apron Beth made for me!!  She also made me place mats to match!  Look at how one side is Fall and the other is Winter!  Love it!!  Thank you so much for everything, Beth!  What an amazing box of Fall Fun!


   Jeff and Mandy have been busy booing our neighbors.  Everyone "boos" two families.  Here is a close-up of the BOO! bag...  I bought the tags from Denise at Polka Dot Moon.  Aren't they darling???  Stop by and check out her shop!

Oh what a fun mail day!! We love the "Fancy Nancy" series and what a fabulous pink package :)

Booing the neighbors is lots of fun. We actually caught a few neighbors trying racing to a house last year! Lots of Halloween "spirit"!

And I'm so glad you liked the tags :)

Hi Lori
Thanks for showing your wonderful swap goodies. I love them all. I am eager to join some more swaps. I promised myself I would finish the Christmas stocking swap before I signed up for any more. I am almost finished. Swaps are such fun and so exciting.
