I swear, just these few posts make me feel like the worst secret curly ever! I picked things specifically for my curly's interests/wishes, but... I wanted to be able to do more, and somehow y'all did!

Tea and honey were almost swiped by my mother *PANIC*
Merry, Merry Christmas!
My boss would find contraband amusing, legal or illegal. : )
I just can't imagine what would be illegal to ship to PA. Or did I GET the contraband?!
Of course I ship illegal stuff all the time so I really don't pay attention.
And seriously, give your son and kitty a huge hug from me. They did good! The story about the rocks is perfect.
I have now had 3 different flavors of tea. I will have a hard time not sloshing around at gym class tonite. : )

I was! Which is nothing short of a miracle because I'm usually wrong with these types of things.

And don't dare feel like a bad secret curly, I'm certain your gift is fabulous and thoughtful!

No, I didn't send the contraband

Did you know it is illegal to ship wine into PA? This is what I was hoping to send you as a locally produced mead: Blacksnake Meadery: Our Products but alas, I was skeered. Have fun sloshing! Consider it a tea/sweat detox workout

I'm so glad I didn't have to wait until the end of the day to find out who was Jeepy's secret curly and what she got!

RELIEF!

I am so glad you like them! Originally I was thinking "wine & earrings" and then my brain just froze up! It took a few days, but then the inspiration hit when I saw Santa on the front page of the paper and I took it as a sign to GET BUSY!!! What's ironic is I did all the shopping before I made the earrings even though they were in the original plan. I had made a prototype that I didn't like so much and yours are the chainearrings2.0.

Tea and honey is like manna from heaven to me And I love magazines too!! I was nice and didn't read yours before I sent them!

Thank you, Deedles!

I received my package this afternoon. It was awesome! I got 3 Yankee votives (Vanilla, Mandarin Cranberry, and Black Cherry), a BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar purse size lotion, an adorable polar bear Christmas ornament, a picture frame, a bag each of Skittle and Starburst (my daughter immediately asked, "Are you sharing those?" when she saw them...LOL), and a Nook gift card.



It was a wonderful surprise. Thank you!

Yeah!! I am so glad you got it!! I have to admit when I lost my tracking number I was freaking that it would get lost or something (that has happened to me before)

I had fun putting your box together!!! I went a bit overboard (Hope you don't mind) but I kept seeing stuff that was great and well one thing lead to another....

Merry Christmas!!

My curly is going to come to Ga and get me. Her package is going to be hard to get into....I wanted to make sure it was secure. I hope, hope she at least likes some of it. I dropped it off at FedEx after work tonight.

I wanna post a picture of the box...kinda of a dominatrix theme Christmas. The design of the box, not what's inside. I'm not that kind of girl. In that case what's inside is better off not being counted.

You cannot post something like that and not post a pic.....it's against the rules.

Yay for Sariroo!!!!!!

She sent me a bracelet I was thisclose to ordering for myself, and probably would have after the holidays. I love it!

It reads "Horses aren't my whole life...They make my life whole" with a horse head and crystal charm on it. Yayayayay!

Sorry for the lousy pics...






Also, I almost missed that there was a note in the package from the vendor, and was going to post here asking if anyone had sent it! It came in a box with a pretty tag on it, but I didn't realize the tag opened up to show a note inside. Then I found it!
