I Love Surprises!!!




Heading home from work this evening, in the rain, searching for my mailbox key and thinking that it would be really nice to find something fun in my mailbox...instead of the usual bills & junk mail. Opened the box, and there was the key for the parcel box...hmmm...opened that box & inside was a surprise from one of my favorite blogging buddies, Shara @ Monkeybox. It seems that Shara hosted an egg swap at Easter, and there were some goodies left over, so she decided to send me a box of sweet Easter fabulosity! {I love that word, even if it does get underlined every time I use it!} This box was filled to the brim with some of the prettiest Easter eggs & tags & other cool stuff, all made with love by some of my other favorite bloggers! In her card Shara says "I'm told that eggs symbolize a new stage in life and new beginnings. I hope this brings you a smile if only for a second." A second?? I opened this box 2 hours ago and I'm still smiling. Thank you so much to Shara...and to all the other bloggers who added a smile to my day... Laurie, Sarah, Heidi, Jane & Wendy, Rebecca, Courtney, Sumee, Lisa, Gail & Debra...Some of you are already on my Morning Coffee Blog reading list, but those who are not on there will be soon. Thank you all for making my day...can hardly wait till next spring. You know now I'll have to put up a little Easter tree...check out all these goodies!! I love them all! Have a great week. *elaine* ps just realized this is my 1st blog post in over a month...didn't feel I had much to say so I've just been reading...Thanks Shara, for the extra little push I needed. *e*

When Shara suggested the idea to the swappers, I thought it was brilliant! Glad it added a little smile to your day. Sending a big blogland hug!

There's nothing like a massive infusion of STUFF to cheer a girl up, I always say!

CONGRATS! It was a fun swap :) I hope you liked my egg! I forgot to label them, but mine was the one wrapped in thread with a white bird on top.

BTW, I'm in Florida, too. Lakeland to be exact!

Elaine... I hope you're doing well! I think of you often.

I hope you were able to find some shutters! The chippier the better! These were perfect for this project. And, it's the easiest project I've done in quite some time! LOVE that!
take care,
gail
