Wonderful Surprises



I was feeling a bit down earlier today after I talked about the Mean Grinch who has been stealing a lot of things. I just couldn't wait to post about the wonderful surprises I received in the mail today!!! It really helped me feel a lot better. I received a very nice arrangement of chocolates and treats from DEMDACO. Well, there goes my diet at least until the new year. (ha,ha,ha) I also received an awesome gift from my friend Jackie of FatJak Originals. I recently went to Chicago and we had an opportunity to hang out. It was a lot of fun. Well, when I was in St. Charles I bought this really cool Tara Handknit hat. I found out that these products are truly handmade with the most basic ingredients of wool fibers, rich dyestuff and bare hands. They also have sweaters, scarves, mittens and dolls. The quality in craftsmanship and the rich and colorful dyes are great. The textures and the unique designs of these products will surely become one your favorites. Also, the benefit from the sell of these items go to the women of Nepal. After returning home, I was kicking myself because I didn't buy the matching scarf. So, when I received a package today it was such a nice surprise to open and find the wonderful scarf that I admired at the store. Thanks, Jackie I love it!! You are a sweetheart!! Take a peek; what do you think? Also, check out the chocolate treats she sent for the kids. They are chocolate covered apples from Ms. Prindable's. Oh! My!! They look just delicious!! I can't wait to taste them.
