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!

A Surprise in my Mailbox!!

   My friend, Joy, is one of the most uplifting, inspiring people you will ever meet.  She adores her family and, my goodness, does she love the Lord!:)  Her parents knew what they were doing when they named her because she brings such joy to me and so many others.  She is a true blessing!  If you have not stopped by her shop, you must go!  Right now!
   Today, I got the MOST amazing surprise box of goodies from Joy!  Each and every item took my breath away!  Look, my heart is beating faster just thinking about it!!!  Look at how she packaged everything- with matching tissue paper and tags that are sewn with darling fabric hearts!
   Have you ever seen anything so gorgeous??  This is one of Joy's famous joxlettes.  You can pin them on your shirt, on a purse, and even on a hat!  I have a beautiful summer one and now I have a yummy one for Fall!  Joy, thank you so much!    Love the beads and how she coordinates them with the amazing fabrics....

   Oh my goodness!  Can it be??  Did Joy make me some note cards from her new line of stationery????

   Yes, she did!  The sweetest tree with falling leaves!  Look at how beautifully she coordinates the colors....  She also makes darling note cards for the members of your family.:)  Guess what??  She makes jewelry and swags, too!

   Oh, and look at the candy corn in the cute little carrot shaped bag!  That won't last long....

   Joy, this was the most wonderful surprise and I can't thank you enough.  Your creativity amazes me!  Thank you, thank you, thank you, my sweet, sweet friend!:)

What a lovely surprise you recieved. It was packaged so beautifully and those notecard are really lovely. All this creativity I see whilst blogging makes me want to leave all the housework and do crafts all day. The only problem is I can only enjoy my crafts if my house is reasonably tidy and housework fairly up to date! Just going to take a look at your friend Joy's blog and then it's ironing and cleaning for me today!!
