The Perfect Remedy

It has been a long week. I'm not trying to complain, just making the general observation. And since it's been a rather long week, I was a bit of a grouch when I headed home the other day. And then I opened the mail box.

I got the greatest Pay It Forward gift ever from Jen at StickyFeathers!


It should be immediately said that my crummy photo does not do this fantastic gift justice. There was candy! There was a craft book! There was a $20 Target gift card!

This single handedly has convinced me that I can, in fact, survive another day. Have I mentioned that I have a tendancy to be a bit dramatic?

But seriously - thank you Jen, for the wonderful gift. You are too kind, and you couldn't have better timing if you tried!


And because some of you asked, I will show you what I sent to Whimsy as the winner of my Pay It Forward contest. Whimsy, your gift should be there soon, but if you haven't seen it yet then close your eyes!


An outfit (have you see little Miss Alice...she is adorable!)
A reusable Target shopping bag...that folds into itself
A book
Handmade Cards
Post It Notes
A $5 Target gift card

And since I was the winner of the contests held by both Jen and Becky, I will be holding two more Pay It Forward contests in the next few weeks. The next giveaway will start on Monday, July 28th, so mark your calendars!

Ahhh!!! This is what I get for being such a slacker. So much awesomeness to live up to. I'm sorry you don't have your prize from me yet. I promise to get less slackerish after we return from (yet another) wedding this weekend!!
