Goodie Box

Have you ever received a goodie box? One with many little individually wrapped gifts?

The mailman brought a special box to our door. Inside were sixteen individually wrapped packages and some pictures and one book and a journal. I was so excited to sit down and open each package and ooh and ahh with each new discovery.

I was the giveaway winner on Cinner's blog Things About Who,What,When,Where and Why.


Inside the box was a totally cool wooden inlay magnet of a flying goose, the book, the journal, a black bracelet, a rhinestone bracelet,a daisy candle in a holder, a rock personalized by Cinner, a cool bag which I will use when I walk around town because it has zipped pockets for camera, phone, etc, a turquoise ring, two keychains, a crystal, a roll of white ribbon, four little plates that will go in the kitchen, a painting of Canadian mountains that Cinner painted, four metal charms, an angel statue for the garden, 3 heart decorations (see pic), black cloth napkins, very lovely lace, 24 pearl buttons(see pic), and a toy tractor(peeking out under the white ribbon)!When she mentioned her giveaway, Cinner was sparking interest in someone using some of the items in crafty ways. Well, it worked.


Now, that is a goodie box!

Thank you, Cinner, for the sweet letter and for wrapping each gift with so much love. I have ideas for so many of the items. James and I are rockin' out that all around our little hippie house will be reminders of you when I finish the little projects.
Hugs, Hugs, Hugs.

That a lot of items. I can't recall getting a goodie box, since I was little and my grandmother would send me one.

TechnoBabe I am so glad you got the box and that you like the items. The candle face with the sunflower eye I carved as well, not sure if I told you in the letter, I am thrilled you liked everything. enjoy and have a great week. hugs. The leaf keychain was made by my next door neighbor. He is a metal smith. have a fabulous day.

I was almost as excited as you are.
Its amazing how other peoples' giveaways are so much more appealing than your own. I know you'll find good use for them as you are an imaginative person.

Ms.A, I have sent goodie boxes to my kids and to my mom. Getting it in the mail and spending time going through each item was so fun.

Dear Cinner, I have already used some items. The bracelets are around candles in two rooms. The picture you painted is up. The angel is being used inside until spring when she will be in the front flower bed. We are using the napkins. The magnet holds the outgoing mail on the front door. And much more. I have plans for the rest. Thank you so much.

Maggie, isn't it fun? If I could, I would send goodie boxes to everyone I know just for the sheer joy they would have opening things and planning where and how to use them. You are so sweet to say I am imaginative, when I have the goodie box items where I want them I will take pics and put into a post.

How awesome is that. The one and only goodie box I have ever received was from my boyfriend, which later became my husband, so many years ago! :)

Gail said...

That is a jackpot!!

DJan said...

Wow! I would be simply overwhelmed to receive such a thing. It would take a very imaginative person to figure out how to use all those pearl buttons, for example. I look forward to your adventure, TB. Oh, and congratulations on the win.

TechnoBabe said...

Gary, Mr Potter Man, There were lots of great craft ideas blossoming as I opened each package.

oceangirl, what a great memory for you. I know it means a lot to you especially now. Hugs.

Brian, it was a surprise to see all the goodies and to know I already had ideas how to use them.

Gail, exactly.

DJan, thanks. I have already used lots of the goodies. Will show you later.
