A Thoughtful Parcel

You know when someone emails you that a package is coming, but not to get too excited because it is nothing fabulous, that is has to be something fabulous. I thought this box from Emily (a Christian Paper Artists friend) was pretty darn thoughtful, lavishly assembled and so -- quite fabulous. Am I wrong? :)

A lovely hand made card, cloth napkin and bag of Jordan almonds were just the first few items to pop out of the mountain of tissue wrapped packets.

I had the foresight to take a picture before I tore into the rest!

These tags are just beautiful, n'est pas? I love the butterfly tag that says, "If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies". And the moxy of the dress, "While I'm here, I might as well dance". Love it!

Lucious fibers. Little feather boas for art projects!

Hershey chocolate with almonds, yummy pepermint flavored lip balm that I have to keep my kids from eating (I have to keep myself from eating!) and Midnight Pomegranite hand cleansing gel. Oooh lala! I can't eat just ONE Jordan almond.
Rubber stamps. How did she know I never have enough? Oh, yeah, she said she saw my post of ALL the stamps I had stored. heehee

Jelly Belly jelly beans. The multi flavor pack is already gone (Rebecca has been helping me- honestly!) I am saving the buttered popcorn flavor for last. I hesitate to open the bag, because they will be gone in no time!
I was SO touched by Emily's spontaneous gesture. Who, but a sister (spiritually in this case), knows what is needed when your heart has been hurt?
I emailed Emily a raving thank you, but also my disappointment that she did not include an "un do" wand to reverse the effects of the candy on my body. hahaha If you ever meet me in person and notice my lumpy mid section.... it is made up of Jordan almonds and Hershey's chocolate. :) And if I am licking my lips too much, it is because I am eating off my lip balm! heeheehee
Thank you again Emily. You are one of God's treasures.

How wonderful, what an amazing friend! Her gift tags are adorable mini works of art, I love them. I'm a lipbalm person too and those look brilliant, I don't think we can get them here (but I may have to look!)
