Over the winter break, I entered into a give-away over at Embracing and Being Embraced. I don’t normally enter give-aways, as I never, ever win anything, but this time the give-away was for something I really wanted, so I thought I’d give it a try. So imagine my joy when I got a message from the lovely Shanda saying I’d won! 🙂 The prize: a $20 credit towards merchandise from DaySpring. I had to use it by December 31st, but I waited until after Christmas to try to get some post-Christmas-sales goodies. I went and agonized for literally days over finding just the right items and placed my order December 30th. I had the option to get FedEx or USPS to ship it for the same price and as I’d never tried FedEx before, I decided to be bold and try it.
Fast forward to today. The doorbell rings and I hear a “thud” on my doorstep. Look closely at the note, it’s funny:
(For those that didn’t click on it: the note, which I’m assuming should have been stuck to my front door, said that my package had been delivered to my front door. Hilarious!)
I brought it in, happily finding a pair of scissors to open it right away, and not even slicing myself open along with the package. 😉 Here’s what I saw:
It looked good, really good. (But wait, there’s only one spiral bound item in the box! I accidentally ordered the wrong journal…but this one is super cute, too.)
I totally heart Holley Gerth, can you tell? I used my credit towards: 1 thing for me (the journal), 1 thing for the family (the perpetual calendar), 1 thing to share (the book), and 1 thing to bless others (the inspirational cards). I think I did pretty well. Thanks so much, Shanda!
