Providing a soapbox for the inherently cranky since 2005.

My Secret Spoilee was.....
...***Sue*** at Inner Dorothy! I was so excited to be choosing things for Sue! She had mentioned on her blog that she LOVED Starbucks and chocolate marshmallow candies, so I knew those would feature heavily. Sue also mentioned that her chosen holiday was Christmas, so I knew I could find lots of good Christmas-y things to fill her gift box with.
Her main gift, I decided, would be a homemade item. I didn't really know if Sue was a craft-lover like Andrea and I, so I punted. Everyone has Christmas pictures, right? I figured that I could make a small scrapbook that Sue could use to record details about this Christmas. I left all the pages blank, thinking that Sue could put in her own journalling to make the scrapbook all about her and her loved ones. Here's a picture of me with the open scrapbook....
I also added some Christmas-smelling candles, a couple of felt ornaments, a package of foot-pampering soak tablets, and some warm fuzzy Santa socks. I then packed up the box to mail.... and away it went to Canada!
Sue, I hope you had as much fun opening and enjoying your present as I did making and sending it. Part of the joy of the holidays for me is sharing my blessings, and I was fortunate enough to run into such a great group of blog friends, and even more fortunate to have been matched up with such a genuinely wonderful person. I wish you all the best, and all the love of the season.
