I have been so slack on thank yous.

When I got home yesterday, I found this on the counter. This is a rare occurance. Not the fact that there was a package, just that it was still sealed. My monsters know the people I share with regularly, and will open a package from MaryAnn or Vallen and call me and let me know what goodies await. This one was different. They were waiting for me because they did not recognize the return name and address. It was from Ann-Margaret and it was so pretty.

A cigar box. Fabulous graphics outside and in. Oh my, this is beautiful. A card that says "just because" -- all tied up in a pretty ribbon. Now the box would have been perfect all alone. I have a "thing" for boxes. And if you look closely, you will see an old sticker. What you can't see it that it says "capacitors (non polarized)" -- now this may mean nothing to you, but I went to college for electronics engineering technology and I worked in test and troubleshooting for industrial power supplies. I wrote manuals for assembly and test and installation/operation of power supplies to cable tv. I smiled when I saw this because I knew what a capacitor was. A fun reminder of my college days.

Goodies inside the box. ALL stuff I will use and the box will be used as well. Thank you so much.

Thank you also goes to a new blog buddy for me. Innocent Charms sent a really fun bracelet to me. Jen has sent stuff and it is my understanding that I have a package at the post office that will be requiring my signature (Molly) will pick it up Saturday morning.

There are not always pictures, but there are ALWAYS squeals of joy and exclamations of look at this. I am so appreciative of everything people do for me. I thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you - thank you - thank you.

UPDATES : MaryAnn - I should be finishing up your fabric challenge this weekend or early next week. This has been so much fun for me. I have tried to be a little outside the expected on this one - so far I like what I have done. But no sneak peeks on this. Raesha - the tags for your swap will be mailed early next week. Vallen - I am still working on the mounted ATC for my swap partner. For all of you CIP girls, a package will probably go in the mail next week too. So - I am still busy, but I actually prefer to have something to do.

I do hope you all are having a wonderful day. I am.

Wow -- what a great surprise. I LOVE cigar boxes... this one is especially beautiful... and that electronics capacitor thing. I flunked that in the Air Force. Capacitors, resistors, Ohm's Law, Kirkoff's Law, oh my!!! Great cigar box.
