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!

Sweet Tweets and Mr. UPS

It's almost 2:00 AM- again. (Jes- are you still up?)  Those of you that know me well know that I am such a NIGHT OWL.  Must. Break. This. Habit.  sigh....  Well, while I'm up let me remind you to *enter my Necklace Giveaway* (previous post)!
And, while I have your attention, here is my show and tell for the day.  Do you remember show and tell at school?  Those were the days.  I think we should have grown-up show and tell- just for fun.:)
Olenka sent me the most wonderful package of goodies!  She is one creative lady!  A darling notebook...

   A sweet gift card holder with *gasp* a Starbuck's gift card!  Yippee!

   Look at her attention to detail!  You should see the lovely things in her Etsy shop!

   She made this precious gift box out of paper!  Wowzers!  And inside were beautiful tags!

   This is the outside of the gift box.  Thank you so much for the sweet surprises, Olenka!

   I won a giveaway from Tiffany at Love Boxes, too!  Have you seen her hand painted works of art?  Gorgeous.  Not only did she send me the sweet little bear Love Box, she also included candies, toys, crayons, tags, a book, a notebook and pencils!  

   Look at the darling wrapping...

   Then, yesterday Mr. UPS showed up at my door with a HUGE box.  It was something from Red Envelope!  My mind was racing!  Who could this be from??
   It turns out it was from my dear friend, Heather!  We met when we were partners in a book swap and have been close ever since.  She is an absolute treasure, let me tell you...

   Look at these sweet tweets!  Oh, I LOVE them!  They are lanterns!  

   I love their sweet faces and the colors are beautiful!  Thank you so much, Heather!
   *Once again, don't forget to enter my giveaway!*  I will draw a winner on Sunday!  Now I am going to bed...
