Good Karma Gift Swap – lucky me!

February 25, 2010

Who doesn’t like getting fun things in the mail? Nobody – right?

A few weeks ago, I spotted a tweet by Kaileen about a gift swap she was hosting. I don’t often join that kind of thing, because I’m not very diligent about getting stuff into the mail on a timely basis and too often end up feeling badly about letting people down. But this time I thought it would be fun, and really… who doesn’t need a little good karma now and then?

True to form, I was late mailing my package (sigh – I could use travel and 101 other things as excuses, but let’s face it – it’s just not my strong suit to be organized) but it’s on its way now, so hopefully my swap buddy won’t mind the delay.

In the meantime…. oh my! What a treat I got in the mail today! Amy from Dish on Design sent me such a cool package, I just have to brag about it.

Cookies, chocolates (from a local sweet shop in Cincinnati), tea, a lovely candle (mmmm… it smells SO good!), and some word art to adhere to the wall (“Live, Love, Laugh”) in a very cool little fake-book box.

But… the very best part… oh you’ve GOT to see this up close!!

She did a bunch of research on my blog to find out what she could about me, and she created this amazing framed art work to celebrate ME! Using one of my own photos (of my feet) as a backdrop! Is that not the coolest thing EVER?! She called me a “global fumbler”! I think I may need to use that as my new tagline! And check out the way she used the letters in “fumbler” to define me:

  • Friend & mother
  • Unbridled creative
  • Mentor to many
  • Beautiful soul
  • Leader of all things are possible
  • Exceptional person (doesn’t give herself enough credit)
  • Risk taker… fearless explorer

I feel so special! Thanks Amy!

And just so you don’t think I was greedy with the treats (she mentioned they were for sharing with my girls), here’s proof that they were enjoyed by them…
