you've got mail!


i love to go down to the end of my drive and see what the mailman has brought for me today! sometimes it is just junk or the red plum and sometimes.... it is a special gift!!!
since i have been doing this Great Create, every month ( toward the end ) i get so anxious waiting to check the mail! K is the same way - even though we are only 3 months in, she has put together that the craft ( gift ) will come at the end of the month. she asks me first thing after school if her Great Create swapper sent anything! she was thrilled when she received this adorable headband...
*and i had to get a close up of those lashes :) i adore how subtle and soft they are!*

I need to take a proper picture of the special surprise that K's swappers Mama snuck into the package for me ( and i was not even assigned to her ! ) i was super thrilled to get it but since it is a camera strap cover, i have not had the chance to take a pic of it b/c i have been USING it! So until I get a pic of it, here is her awesome etsy site The Pink Pooka ( love the name! )so you can see some of the other cool straps she made!

then today... my little brother and his sweet girlfriend ( whom i am hoping becomes his wife b/c i really like her a lot... hint hint.. wink wink...) sent us some goodies! now the package had a hilarious sketch on it as you can see below. i have NO idea where the "Herro Kitty" thing came from but Tom and Zachary have been tossing that saying around to each other for years and I still don't know what it means....? they sent K and I some pretty bling and Tom got some random "man things"... I LOVE my bracelet and have been wanting one like that for awhile and K loves her cross necklace and ring!


the bible verse says
 Psalms 91:11-12, "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 


speaking of gifts/giving... i have so many ideas and things i want to make/buy for my friends/family - i constantly see things that i could make for a particular person or something in the store will grab my eye and i will instantly think of someone in my life - oh how i wish i had all the time in the world to make gifts for people or all the money in the world to just buy them the things that would be so perfect for them! i know that these are just "things" and they are material to the world and not to our after life but it is fun to get things but I think that i have much more fun giving things to people lol. so if you are a close personal friend or family member please please know that i often think of you and WANT to make/buy you stuff - i just have to find the time to do it!!!! i think that when i sit down to make my Great Create gifts each month, I am also going to dedicate one month to a friend/family member - i am going to make a list and pull names out of a hat at random... SO if you receive a gift FIRST - please don't rub it in to the others - ;)
