Christmas Came Early!

Look what arrived in the mail today!!!
A BIG box of FUN!

My dear bloggy friend, Susan (All About the Journey), took pity on me when she read this post about my lack of craft resources here on the island. Not only did Susan offer to send me things, she asked for my wish list and then went to great lengths to shop around for the best deals. She also took pictures and video of everything she found so I could "approve" the purchases first! Needless to say I "approved" everything - being an arts and craftsy mama herself, she knew just what I would like. :)

Here are a few more pictures of my loot...Cookie cutters galore, buttons, beads, felt, pom-poms, stickers, etc., etc., etc.! I can't wait to put it all to use!

My all-time favorite thing:
This little gumball machine. A gift from Susan. It's just one of the many extras she added to the box. {Honestly, have you ever known anyone so kind?! Bless her heart.} See her post here about how she has used this. James will love it!

Never in a million years would I have imagined blogging would introduce me to such kind and thoughtful people.
Thank you so much, Susan! You're the best!

Thank you for your comments!! Yep, Susan's a sweetheart! My new bloggy BFF! :)
Rusheika, it's nice to know there's someone else on the island who understands what I mean about the scarcity of supplies here!!

Jen said...

I would've sent you stuff!!!! All you need is to ask! I remember how limited supplies are there... used to drive me insane that I couldn't find simple things like buttons and glue.
