sweet surprises to share.

because i never win at anything (forget lotto tickets/raffles/silent auctions), it always AMAZES me and excites me like nothing else when i win a giveaway. (bestie, we have the same luck, no?)

i won Callie of The Magical Bean's hand-made gingerbread ornament *big smiles*. she included the sweetest card.

He is the sweetest thing! i wasn't expecting it to surprise me in the mail yesterday and can i say we both fell in love? (me & mr. gingerbread) Thank-you Callie for the giveaway & for making my Monday!!!

another fun thing to share... Belen sent me my Christmas gift and included my Holiday Gift Swap pressie hosted by Carly! The person who got me was Laura (there was no blog link so THANK-YOU LAURA!!!) who contacted Belen directly (knowing i love her etsy, Belen's Boutique) and bought me these very me earrings.

Belen packaged everything so cutely (of course!) Here it is on my lap while i was at work:
and for Christmas? Belen's gift was SO very thoughtful. I once had sent her a bunch of old necklaces i had laying around, thinking she could take them apart and use them for future projects. I sent her my favourite black beaded necklace, because a link had fallen off the back and was too short for me to wear anymore.

i looooved this necklace. She fixed it for me and made it the PERFECT length!

perfect. THANK-YOU for my Christmas pressie Belen. It was so thoughtful of you to remember how much i loved this necklace and now, thanks to you... i get to wear it again. what do you think?

thank-you Callie, thank-you Laura, thank-you Carly for hosting an awesome swap.

update: Cassie of Hydrangeas and White Daisies got my gift... read about it here.

and of course... thank-you Belen for your frienship & my Christmas gift. For taking the time to make something for me that you KNEW i would love. love you!

So cool. Congratulations! I just found out on Friday that I won two giveaways as well on two different blogs. I never win either. This is the first time. I was so excited. I hope to have time to post about it tonight.
