Back in June, I signed up to be a part of the Christmas in July gift swap that Alyx was hosting. Seemed like the perfect way to mark the almost-there halfway point to the real Christmas, and it's always fun getting new things. Really. I'm a sucker for all those marketing and consumer ads.
Anyway, I was paired up with Riana from Beyond My Wildest Dreams. I kind of forgot to take a photo of her package before I sent it, and I'm not even completely positive that she's received it yet [one of the many hassles of sending mail from overseas], so I'm not going to spoil her surprise. But, I got my gift in the mail yesterday, and couldn't wait to get home to open it.
Lady did a marvelous job of wrapping. I was curious to know what was under all that bubble wrap, but....
....as soon as I saw this symbol, I knew that I would love it. It was a much needed site for deprived eyes. I miss Target so much.
And this is what I found inside. Girl did fantastic. A new frame to add to my collection, a Cosmo [love me some Cosmo], and a new little journal.
Thank you so much, Riana! I loved my gifts, and loved participating in this little swap. Can't wait until next year!
