Gifts in the Mail

I have been meaning to blog about this for about a week... and yes, I know that still means it would have been two weeks since Valentine's Day, but come on, can you ever really have had enough of the day of love?

My lovely friend and fellow crafter from EveryDayCreate, Bri, who by the way posted a killer interview and follow up about me on her blog The Craft Begins, was chosen as my secret Valentine, by Stacy, who had the great idea. AND I was chosen for Bri! So, I mailed her a little collection of goodies, which I didn't want to blog about here, until she received them. And she sent me an equally cool box of things. Here they are, since pictures are worth a thousand words...

My box to Bri:


Ok, I am still talking, or typing, even though I was supposed to let the photo do it for me... Matted print, photo card, photo magnets, photo pendant, candy necklace, and chocolate!

Bri's box to me:


It should be noted that there were a couple more chocolates that were eaten before I could take a pic, LOL! And my daughter took off with the very cute heart bean bag that was also in this box... The heart with my initials hangs on a door knob and holds my valentines. So cute and so vintage. And the Love Mix is awesome! Nothing like a mixed CD. I truly love it when people send them to me. Thanks, Bri!


May it be noted that Bri lives in Arizona, near the Mexican border, and I live in the Canadian Rockies, so it took awhile for our packages to reach one another. So fun! Like having a pen pal when I was a kid...

It is lots of fun! I'm glad that you took a picture, because all your goodies got sent all around the house before i could get a good picture. Glad you liked them! :)
