I can't hold it [in] any longer.

Remember the Gift Giving Elf I warned you about?

Well.

She's excited to announce that it's time to dispense her first packages into 3 unknowingly oblivious mailboxes. If you left an "ok" to be added to the gift receiving recipients list of 4under3, then your name and snail mail address is snuggled in a rod iron basket next to my computer monitor. When I complete a new, crafty eye candy item or find a much loved cutsie item while I'm out and about, I pull a name, package said item, and send it off a sailing. All this done in efforts of calming my compulsion to give.

I can't wait!

I know, I'm kinda spoiling the surprise here. But I just couldn't hold it in any longer. I mean, look at those Christmas books in all their ribbon-and-pretty-paper glory! As much as I love them, I love it more to give them away.

If you're eagerly awaiting the names of those receiving these part ornaments part books, don't worry. I'll share them in a couple of days, giving the delivery team enough time to distribute the surprises.

I'm even biting my nails because of all this excitement and suspense. I love surprises. Like when Mr. Marvelous surprised me with a 5am Hot Air Balloon ride. Or when my MIL surprised me with an hour long Facial Massage just 2 hours prior to the appointment.

But even more, I love to do the surprising. It feels good. Kind of like the heat radiating from the fireplace right now. That feels good too.

I too lobe giving. My poor husband doesn't like it even though he understands me. I love watching people's faces as they see what I have chosen for them. It makes the best memories.

So adorable! I wish I could strap myself down and do more creative stuff with you/like you! The burp rags we made were my last "creative" thing, and I didn't even really help. I just watched you widdle away while I waddled around!

Did you make those today instead of calling me back? Too cute! I have MOPS in the am, but will be home in the afternoon.

Lindsay said...

OH no I want to be tucked away in the iron basket next to your computer! Am I too late?

Anyway, just wanted to say Happy Thursday! :) I love your blog!

Sharon said...

By the looks of it, I'm assuming your taking late orders for a spot in the basket.

Can I email you now? I will anyways, then you can decide.
