Participating in a Crappy Day Present swap was one of the best things ever. Here’s the post where I showed you what I received and also a sneak peek at what I sent out. I enjoyed participating so much that I signed up again. (PS If you would like to have some little presents to open when your day is crappy, go to¬† HERE for instructions on how to sign up to send AND receive your very own crappy day present package.)

I have been lucky that there haven’t been many crappy days since I got my very own crappy day package. But then again, I was off work for almost two weeks for Christmas and the New Year.

Right before I had to go back to work, I opened this one with chocolate! And hot chocolate! And an awesome handmade coaster/pot holder.


Today was just a rough day. Not the worst by any means, but I woke up with the same headache I went to bed with, and I didn’t sleep particularly well overall. I had a few issues to deal with at work, nothing so major, but just a little annoying.

So, after Taylor offered to stop at the store to get wine and ice cream, (wine for me, ice cream for him…he had a busy day too) I came home and opened another present. This one was really awesome. MORE hot chocolate!! And two really neat, tiny, framed silk paintings. I can’t decide where I want to put them just yet, but I really love them.


That Carmen really knows how to put together an awesome gift package.

Not that I want crappy days to happen, but I could definitely get used to this present thing when I’m feeling down.
