Let me just tell you, I was jumping up and down when I saw the box from the guy in the big brown truck. I was so excited, unfortunately I was heading out the door and had to wait until the next day to see all of my goodies.
Look at these BBQ Folk, they are corn picks and they have the most adorable little butts
The linen napkins are so soft, is this "N" not so cute.
Four red and white paper lanterns will add a festive touch to my Canada Day party that I will now throw for anyone that will come. The butterflies are flowing all around the lanterns..darling!
This fabric banner is about 5 feet long and I already have it up. The fabrics are amazing. One package of red M&M's and one package of white M&M's, plus a large bag of Jelly Belly's.....yummy!
At this point, my son was trying to calm me down as I was jumping up and down and going crazy. I still had this awesome metal trunk case to open. On the top it was embellished with the most amazing medallions and look at the front, a crackled "N".......Oh yeah!! I had no idea what I was to expect and when I finally opened it, I nearly passed out...no....seriously!!
The wonderful stamp has a chandelier and birds and scrolling, I can hardly wait to crack it open. There was also a journal that I am going to try and make into a distressed journal book....Christine you are awesome....have I mentioned that already. The pictures that I took do not do justice to all of these wonderful goodies. What did I do in life to be so spoiled.
I am still in awe at the items that I received and hope that Christine will enjoy some of the items that I sent to her. This swap was so much fun, yet frustrating at the same time as it was my first and I was really not comfortable with what I was doing. At the end of the day, I just want Christine to be happy, because she was the most kind and generous person that I know and she was the one that made this experience so enjoyable for me. Please visit her and say hi.
Do something Creative and have a fabulous day !!
I know I will, Thanks so much Christine!!
Hugs, Nerina :)

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my son.
He will be completing grade 7 and is being promoted to Grade 8...
Congratulations Andrew....good job buddy!!!
Tonight I will be helping out at the Grade 8 Graduation, the parents of the grade 7's help out with the graduation of the grade 8's so that the parents may enjoy themselves and be totally present at the celebration!!
This is a tradition and we will be able to enjoy this event ourselves next year.
I will be handing out punch during the dance and then assisting with the clean up.
I can hardly wait to see all of the kids that I have known since they were little all dressed up and getting ready to go to High School. All of their proud parents with the cameras and videos to document this wonderful milestone.
This is such an exciting time for these young adults.
I wish them well in the next step of their journey through life.
Have a fantastic day everyone!!
Hugs, Nerina :)

I know that we all receive this type of chain mail and often just click delete.
I feel that sometimes we should pay attention, be present in the moment and see what that brings us.
Have a really great day!!
