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.
