More Birthday Surprises
Ooohh ... It's my birthday week! And my mailbox is starting to get a little action here! Woohoo! I was absolutely surprised and delighted to receive a package in a Happy Birthday padded envelope. I skipped all the way to my room with glee. I debated whether to wait till Sunday [my actual birthday] or if I should just dig in right then. We all know, when left up to me, I go for the instant gratification. There was no note or warning on the outside of the package that required me to suffer through the week, shaking the package, holding it up to the light, or peeking into the folds of the envelope.
The funnest part about this package was the absolute surprise. I was not expecting it. I savored the moment by slowly cutting the envelope open [because the glue was just too strong for me to tear through]. Poof, opened the package and a waft of sweet scents filled my senses. I soaked it in like the morning sun - or like a nice hot cup of coffee on a cool day. Ahhhh...
Just about everything inside the package was handmade by Liz - otherwise fondly known around AOL-J as Aunt Nub. A personal, handmade card. A magnet of music notes. And an original beaded bracelet. I'm stunned. It's beautiful.
Thank you Aunt Nub. This is a very thoughtful birthday gift. I'll treasure it, always.
Now, what we all need to know is, how much are you selling them for? You have thought about that, haven't you? You have a whole business going. Cards. Magnets. Bracelets. What's next? I know this is only the beginning! I love watching you grow.
