Super-Extra-Happy Mail

The other day I looked in my mailbox and saw that my package from Leila arrived! I did a little happy dance in the driveway! I already knew what it was and I couldn’t wait to get my hot little hands on it!  Every thing about this package was delicious…the cute stitched wrapping, the handmade tag, her business card (which is so awesome I want to make new ones for myself!)…it even came in a pink mailer!  And I think I showed great restraint by taking one whole picture before tearing into it!
As part of the “pay it forward” game, Leila made me the cutest little coin purse EVER!  In fact, I saw it on Flickr even before I read her blog post and I think my heart actually skipped a beat! (I may have even squealed out loud and startled the dogs!)
I cannot get enough of these kettles!
I finally got me some Ruby Star Rising!
inside (I'm so in LOVE with that shade of blue!)
Even though it’s a coin purse, I’m trying to decide how I want to use it.  You’re about to get a peek inside my crazy head…but money is dirty and I want this to stay's too good for gross and grimy coins!…so I’m thinking I will either use it for business cards or gift cards (that’s how I buy my starbucks…and I buy a lot of starbucks!...this will be the perfect size to carry with me)…or I could use it to carry my favorite lipstick and gloss (they currently reside in a TSA-approved Ziploc baggie in my purse!  So not glamorous!).  Whatever I decide to fill it with, I just know that I want this to be on my person at all times! 

So now I get to pay it forward and make something for three of you!  Fun!  So if you want to play along, leave me a comment – I’ll send the first three people a handmade goody!  The only rule is that you will have to pay it forward by making something for three of your peeps within a year.  No prob! 

Ready? Set? Comment!


  1. Yay! I am so pleased you like it Shannon! I love all the uses you came up with for this little coin purse. I know it's in a good home now.
    Have fun with your P.I.F!!

    (oh and p.s. this comment is not an entry...I'll leave it to others who haven't played yet!)

  2. I'll play! I would love to be a part of PIF. Your package from Leila is awesome! What a cute coin purse. I agree with you, though, maybe money isn't the best thing to keep in this pretty. :)


What's on your mind?
