What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #5

I”ve been on a creative roll this week, which means that each day, my desk has become increasingly strewn with artsy residue! However, I did not take a current shot because today, I wanted to share Part 2 of my blog candy story – what I received from Jennifer at Random Vintage Finds!

If you recall, last week I received not one, but two large priority mail boxes, which Legend promptly claimed as his own. The first box contained Surprise Candy from Lori, which was filled with goodies galore! I was so blessed by Lori’s generosity, I chose to wait a day before opening Jennifer’s box, so I could truly savor each gift on its own! This was the sight that awaited me when I opened her box – a dozen or so individually wrapped packages, plus a lovely handmade card and tag from Jennifer!

Now, I was so touched by Jennifer’s thoughtfulness – can you imagine all of the love and care she put into individually wrapping all of those packages? Not only is the tissue paper lovely, but she also topped each package with a beautiful epoxy heart – I loved them so much that I carefully removed each one from the package and found an old sticker sheet to save them on for future use (they were just too pretty to toss!) I also saved the tissue paper to pack a future box with – I’ve never been a fan of stuffing boxes with newspaper!

Now, with all of these individual packages set before me, it felt like Christmas – and I wanted to make that special feeling last – so slowly, throughout the day, I opened a package or two, savoring my gifts one by one. Each package was more delightful than the one before. Even Legend found a few “toys” he tried to claim as his very own!

Here’s a picture of everything that I received.  Thank you so much Jennifer for your generosity – your gift is greatly appreciated!

    Oh, you are so very welcome. I did want to take time wrapping everything, because I know how fun it is to be surprised at every step. I hope you get a lot of use out of everything. I am so glad your kitty helped you out, he probably smelt my kitties on all of the packaging. I'll visit regularly to see whaat you make with it all.
