Last month I signed up for "Sunshine Pen Pals", a fun exchange where you send a little box of fun stuff to someone to add a little sunshine to their day, and you get a box from someone, too. You contact your person before you put their box together to find out what kinds of things they like, and then you use your creativity to come up with a box filled with sunshine for $15 or less. I thought it sounded like fun, so I gave it a try.
My partner that I sent a box to is a sweet lady from Maine named Katherine. I had a great time thinking of things to go in her box, and I included some things I made in it. If you want to see what I sent her, you can read her lovely post about it over at her blog, "My Maine Blog".
Yesterday I received my box from Heidi (you can click here to go to her blog). When we exchanged e-mails earlier this month, Heidi and I found out we have a few things in common. We both love old books and cats, we're both from the Pacific Northwest but we live on the east coast, and two of our favorite TV shows ever are Dr. Who and Psych. So, you can probably guess that I got a fantastic box from her! Haley helped me open it, and pulled the things out of the box while I read the hilarious card (complete with Dr. Who quotes and Psych references) with the explanation/inventory. Rebecca watched and laughed with us. Here's what was in it:
Three "shiny tubes of deliciousness"
